Acid Vs Alkaline Diet

Acid Vs Alkaline Diet

Acidic vs alkaline diet

Our body’s internal system needs a PH of just above 7.0; our immunologic, enzymatic and repair mechanisms all function at their best in this alkaline range. 

If our body becomes over-acidic, i.e. under a PH of 6.4, you may start to experience a combination of these symptoms; 

  •       Low energy
  •       Fatigue
  •       Nasal congestion
  •       Hives
  •       Muscle Pain
  •       Weak nails
  •       Dry skin
  •       Dry hair
  •       Frequent colds
  •       Flu and infection
  •       Headaches


If you have these symptoms and eat foods that create acid in the body, you may need to balance it with an alkaline diet. 

What foods cause acid in the body? 

There is a whole list of foods that cause the body to be over-acidic: dairy and dairy substitutes, animal meat, some grains, chickpeas, condiments, aspartame, prunes, chocolate, peanuts, alcohol and quite a few other types of foods.  Despite the fact that clearly some of the foods in this list are very good for us generally. 

To balance your PH, the remedy is simple and logical; eat more alkaline causing foods to retain balance.

To name but a few of these foods, there are; watermelon, lime, mango, most vegetables, vegetable juices, almonds, sprouts, avocados and green tea. 

When your body becomes more alkaline, the changes that will take place are truly amazing! It will seem magical, but it’s all perfectly normal. You will feel how we all have the right to feel, we just don’t know it as we are so used to feeling unwell. 

Benefits may include:

  •       Rapid weight loss
  •       Increased energy
  •       The need for less sleep
  •       Improved skin and hair condition
  •       Better mental attitude


Are these benefits worth pursuing? 

I certainly think so, and you are crazy if you don’t agree with me! 🙂 

Fortunately, it is not hard to slowly alkalize your body. Take it one day at a time, add more and more green food to your diet, reduce the number of cups of coffee, processed food and animal protein you have every day and you’ll soon reap the benefits.

 Also, cut down on external stress as that causes acidity in the body, so relax and enjoy life, live in balance on the outside and you surely will reap benefits internally.
