Are You Eating Enough Alkaline Foods to Maintain Vital Health?
This chart provides information that shows the contribution of various food substances to the acidifying of body fluids, and ultimately, to the urine, saliva, and blood. In general, it is important to eat a diet that contains foods from both sides of the chart.
Allergic reactions and other forms of stress tend to produce acids in the body. The presence of high acidity indicates that more of your foods should be selected from the alkalizing group
The ideal diet is 75 percent alkalizing
and 25 percent acidifying
foods by volume.
