pH balance

FOREWORD

My name is Christopher Vasey, ND. For Over 20 Years, I have taught the simple, yet 'life-changing' concept of "pH Balance" to thousands of people all around the world. These ideas have propelled many to transformation in their health and their lives.

This report includes a list of foods that are alkalizing and acidifying. It is my wish that you’ll find ways to integrate more healthy alkalizing foods into your diet, and free yourself from the kinds of acidic foods that tax your body.
I have also included over 45 alkalizing recipes that are not only delicious, but will help to alkalize your body. Even by simply adding one alkalizing meal to your daily diet, you’ll begin to notice the difference.
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.
3. You lack proper alkaline buffers such as certain minerals that neutralize acids. By increasing your intake of alkaline-mineral rich water and alkaline supplements, you will replenish your body’s capacity to neutralize excess acids.

It is my deepest with that you discover the magic of pH balance. I invite you to read my book, The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimal Health. I also welcome you to visit www.ph-ion.com to learn more about how to achieve vibrant health and energy through pH Balance.
Best Wishes, Christopher Vasey, N.D.

pH balance

ACIDIC & ALKALIZING FOODS

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 very alkalizing, acid but alkalizing, and slightly alkalizing. “Acid but alkalizing” foods are those which are acid by nature because they contain weak acids such as citric acid. However, these acids are easily exhausted in your body, converting to carbon dioxide and water during digestion. They are rich in alkaline minerals, and thus have an alkalizing effect on the body.

Fruits are classified as alkalizing, acid but alkalizing, and slightly acidifying. Since most fruits are high in sugar, they fit into the slightly acidifying category. If you are very acidic, it is best to avoid high sugar fruit altogether, or limit your intake to a serving per day. Once your pH becomes balanced, you can eat them in moderation.

Dairy products are classified as alkalizing, slightly alkalizing or acidifying. Some refute the fact that dairy products can be alkalizing. This is because they contain lactic acid, which is a weak acid.

While it is considered weak, it does contribute to a low oxygen environment and fatigue. The lactic acid in dairy products is produced by bacteria that feed on the sugar (lactose) in it. However, milk contains large amounts of alkaline minerals including calcium, magnesium, and potassium. It also contains phosphorous, which is necessary for calcium utilization. When one of these alkaline minerals, like calcium for example, binds with lactic acid, a neutral salt called calcium lactate is produced. Thus, while milk contains lactic acid, it also contains the minerals required to buffer it… and then some. The fresher the product is, the less amount of lactic acid it will contain, and the more alkalizing it will be.

Grains and breads are classified as alkalizing, slightly acidifying and acidifying. Most grains are slightly acidifying. When mixed with vegetables, however, they make for a great alkalizing meal. Meats and fish are classified as slightly acidifying, acidifying, and very acidifying. Some meats, of course are more acid producing than others. As a rule, these foods should be avoided until your body gets back into balance.

In order to maintain proper pH, you should eat them in moderation. The classification on these charts can serve as a useful guide for taking the first steps towards developing a healthier pH balanced diet and lifestyle..
Tip! While eating a healthy diet plays a fundamental role in the process of pH balancing, there are a few things you can do to get a jumpstart:
1. Cleanse your body (colon, lymph, liver, kidneys). 2. Hydrate! Drink PLENTY of water... Especially alkaline water. 3. Supplement your diet with alkalizing nutritional supplements.

ACIDIC & ALKALINE FOODS

Try to eat 80% (or more) alkalizing foods and 20% (or less) acidifying foods
Note: * "Acid but Alkalizing" foods are weak acid foods that contain weak acids. While their pH is acidic, these foods have an alkalizing effect in your body. This is because the weak acids (ie. citric acid) convert to water and carbon dioxide in your body. The carbon dioxide is expelled through your breath.
