Just as the body regulates its temperature in a rigid manner, so will it manage to preserve a very narrow pH range – especially in the blood – a pH of 7.365. Chronic acidity will interrupt all cellular activities and functions — it interferes with life itself.
Things that create acidity in the body are sweets, alcohol, flour products, diary, processed meat and some veggies like peas, beans, lentils and peanuts. Alkaline foods include whey, goat’s milk, plain yogurt, cold-pressed oils, miso, brewer’s yeast, eggs and unprocessed sea salt. Most herbs are alkaline as well. Alkaline beverages include fruit and vegetable juices, coffee, tea, mineral water and red and white wines. Almonds, coconut and chestnuts are alkaline nuts. Veggies include broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, asparagus, celery, onions, peppers and radishes. Spinach, kale and fennel.
