The Alkaline/Acid Dynamic

We thrive when our blood pH is slightly alkaline, about 7.4. One simple way to begin to protect our body’s natural state of balance is to eat a diet that consists of about 75 percent alkalizing foods and 25 percent acidifying foods. Factors such as chronic stress and eating a diet high in pesticides, refined and mass produced foods can impede our ability to maintain an alkaline environment, throwing our immune system out of whack and diminishing our natural ability to self heal. Alkalizing the body fluids, or raising pH, is one of the single most important health regeneration benefits available, as disease causing microforms, fungi, bacteria, and viruses, cannot survive in an alkaline oxygenated environment.
