Your body's pH affects every cellular exchange... and balancing your pH is a major step toward well-being and greater health.
According to the research of Dr. Enderlein, total healing of chronic illness only takes place when and if the blood is restored to its normal, slightly alkaline pH of 7.35.
An acidic body is a sickness magnet. What you eat and drink will impact where your body's pH level falls.
Important Note: The tables below are based on the assumption that all people respond the same way to every food. That is not the case.
Acid Forming Foods
The minerals sulfur, phosphorus and iron produce acid ions in your body, are found primarily in proteins such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs, grains, legumes, some nuts and refined & processed foods. These are acid forming foods. Soft drinks, the bane of the American diet, besides their empty calories, contain no protein, but lots of phosphate and thus are very acid forming.
Alkaline Forming Foods
The minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium form alkaline reactions in your body, and are found primarily in fruits and vegetables, beans, lentils, spices, herbs & seasonings, some seeds & nuts. These are alkaline forming foods.
