List of Alkaline Foods - The pH Balanced Diet

by Christopher Vasey, ND

Acidification in the body comes as a result of THREE primary things:

1. Eating too many acidifying foods which create an acid ash in your body.

This is where proper diet comes in. By eating a diet of 80% alkalizing foods, you’ll eliminate the production of excess acid in your body.

2. Microforms like bacteria, yeasts and fungi create acidic toxins in your body.

Not only that, but they proliferate in an acidic body. So, not only do they “show-up” in an acidic body, they also pollute and further acidify your body. For this reason, it is important to cleanse & detoxify your body in order to jumpstart the process of balancing your pH.

By increasing your intake of alkaline-mineral rich water and alkaline supplements, you will replenish your body’s capacity to neutralize excess acids.

For the purposes of identifying the acid or alkaline potential of foods, we have divided the following list into three basic categories – alkalizing, slightly acidifying, and very acidifying. Even within a single category, however, not all foods are uniformly alkalizing, acidifying, or acid.

The classification used here presents foods in a three-column chart. Alkaline foods(vegetables) are divided into strongly alkalizing, slightly alkalizing, and acidifying. Acid foods are categorized as alkalizing, slightly acidifying, and strongly acidifying. This division helps people suffering from acidification avoid inadvertently choosing only weakly alkalizing foods when they could just as easily eat strongly alkalizing foods, which are of much greater benefit in correcting the imbalance of their internal environment.

This is not a precise hierarchical organization, where each food occupies a set place with regard to the others; we currently lack the objective criteria necessary for establishing such an exact hierarchy. Analysis of a food’s chemical composition is not germane because it does not take into account what happens once the food has been ingested. As we have seen, digestion and the body’s utilization of foods alter their properties. These classifications are therefore based on observation of the effects these foods have on the body.

List of Alkaline Foods - The pH Balanced Diet | in5d.comBased on your own experience, however, you may feel one food or another is better placed in a category different than the one assigned to it here. This is not surprising, since each person’s body has its own strengths and weakness in handling certain foods. It can in fact be the case that a food has a very acidifying effect on one person, whereas for most people its acidifying effect is weak. You are well advised to trust your own experience rather than to base all your food choices on theory.

Nonetheless, the classification on these charts is valid for the majority of people. Fort he rest, it can serve as a useful guide for taking the first steps while they are in the process of determining how to modify their diet according to their individual needs and the intrinsic capabilities of their own bodies.
