Acid-Alkaline Food Chart

Science has divided foods, like chemicals, into two classes: Alkaline-forming, or practically safe foods to eat, and Acid-forming, the somewhat dangerous foods to eat. Do you eat over 80 per cent in alkaline foods, of mainly fruits and vegetables If so, these foods, rich in organic mineral salts and vitamins preserve the normal alkalinity of the blood, and you do not need to think about diets. This is the all encompassing key to balancing food intake. Remember always to eat plenty of health-promoting items, especially when you do eat acid-formers, such as meat, cheese, nuts, grains, et cetera. Because these items are acid-forming is no reason to exclude them entirely—but use them judiciously and in the correct balance, so that they yield the greatest good to your body.

Gland tone means perfect health. Glands feed mainly upon body secretions, and the healthy body must have living mineral and alkaline elements in the main. Fruits should predominate at breakfast. For lunch, fruit or vegetables with a possible alkaline dairy product. At dinner, vegetables, especially salads. Use cereal products sparingly; proteins, fats, sweets, moderately. Have only wholegrain goods.

Fruits are not really laxative; they merely help produce digestive juices which promote good elimination, while their high water content keeps the bowels moist and soft. really a normal condition. Protein, starch, sugar and fats leave acid reactions. Thus an alkaline diet diminishes acidity of the urine by neutralizing and absorbing normal body acids. It also forms a reserve of bicarbonates, which help to maintain neutrality; you are aiding your body to overcome the bad effects of acid foods you do eat. The only other food knowledge you need is harmonious combination, which is available in any modern health work.

The average person can be safe on an 80% alkaline to 20% acid proportion. Watch yourself. Plan your meals to follow this valuable acid-alkaline chart, the most complete, simple and up-to-date in existence. However, don’t make a fetish of this regimen, but observe it in a rational manner.
