Cancer cells struggle to exist in an alkaline environment. All forms of arthritis may be associated with excess acidity in the diet. Your body attempts to balance its pH by pulling calcium from both teeth and bones. Potassium and magnesium are also leached from the body to reduce acidity. This stresses the body and contributes to the aging process. Whatever health situation you are faced with, you can improve your progress toward a proper acid/alkaline balance by eating a diet high in alkaline foods daily.

 The real reason you may have poor health is because of what you put in your mouth at every meal. And it isn't how "acid" something may taste when you eat or drink it. It has to do with what is left over after you digest it. Eating alkaline foods and eating them in large amounts can possibly help relieve or cure many people who need to fight disease or even possibly slow aging. The big medicine companies do not want you to know that you can ward off disease with natural, non-acidic foods. They would lose millions of dollars in revenue if everyone started to use the natural medicines that are growing abundantly around us and sell for practically pennies compared to prescription medicines. The best way to keep your body disease-resistant without taking lots of drugs is to eat a diet high in alkaline foods every single day.

 The key to maintaining a healthy, disease-resistant body is to develop the habit of satisfying your hunger with foods that are nutrient rich and low in calories. This may be accomplished by eating an abundant amount of non-starchy vegetables, legumes (beans) and fruits; by eating a low amount of starchy vegetables and grains; and by eating only sparing amounts of nuts and seeds. These alkaline foods will give your body the nutrition it needs to fight invading bacteria and viruses. 


 Doctors have been encouraging us to a diet high in veggies and fruit for many, many years and yet we still insist on consuming acidic foods by the truckload. These foods are a burden on our immune and digestive system and must be replaced by the foods that nature produces for us naturally from the earth.
