5 Steps to Wellness - STEP 2: Acid and Alkaline Foods

Acid and Alkaline Foods
Compare your body to a swimming pool. If the acid / alkaline ratio is out of balance, your pool will be green and all types of existing germs will be able to grow.

So if your body is like a green pool, all existing germs, viruses and parasites in your body will be able to grow and will feed itself from your body parts.

When the body is in an acidic environment (green pool condition), diseases thrive; diseases such as arthritis, gout, eczema, osteoporosis, high cholesterol, heart disease, kidney and gall stones, asthma, allergies, AIDS, etc.

When your body is in balance and is a “blue pool”, no germs can live in your body and your body can now rest to rebuild itself and has the nutrients to build your system and gives your energy levels back. Only then will healing occur.

Step 2. is to balance the acid / alkaline ratio of your body. You can see from the lists below of the different types of acid and alkaline foods there are to help balance your body's acid / alkaline state.

Residue – after foods have been used and processed in the body (metabolised), the left over after metabolism is known as residues or ash. The foods either release acid or alkaline residues or ash.

Convert your diet to 80% alkali residue foods / 20% acid residue foods.

Ensure that your diet is predominant high-water content foods that are fresh and organic. Supplementation with trace minerals is also advised.

A CORRECT Acid / Alkaline diet is the first step to healing and restoring health.

Viruses and bacteria can only live and grow fast when the acid level is out. At the correct balance, viruses and bacteria cannot live or multiply.

Sickness is continued when the balance is out as hormones, vitamins, minerals and foods cannot be used by the body to repair it, it cannot fight the growing germs and cannot bring it back to health.

The correct balance gives one continuous energy levels, and fast healing occurs.
