Why Eat From an Alkaline Food List?

Nature originally provided natural plant foods that were slightly, and sometimes highly alkaline. The alkalinity of plants was determined by their genetics, and their access to specific minerals in various ratios.

Natural plants are non-hybrid alkaline plants, while the hybridization of plants or the combining of two plants through unnatural cross pollination altered their chemical structure and produces acidic plants.

The alkaline food list is based on non-hybrid plant foods and plant foods whose alkalinity hasn’t been compromised.

Being part of nature, people’s requirements for nutrients developed in relation to its natural food source, which are natural alkaline plants.

These plants naturally supported the slightly alkaline 7.4 pH of the blood, which the body works diligently to maintain.

When we consume food the body digests the food and breaks it down to an ash that contains its key components, which are minerals and other compounds.

The pH of the ash is determined by the concentration of its alkaline components like potassium, calcium, magnesium, and iron, verses its concentration of acidic components like sulphur, phosphorus, and chlorine.

Alkaline Forming

Interestingly many fruits are acidic outside the body but when they are digested they leave behind an alkaline ash, and are considered to be alkaline forming.

Natural plant foods are naturally alkaline or alkaline forming in contrast to meat, dairy, and processed foods that are acidic.

Alkalinity and PH

The ratio of carbohydrates, fats, protein, minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients in alkaline non-hybrid plants all naturally support homeostasis of the organs and metabolic functions in the body, while providing an alkaline environment in the blood that kills disease.

The pH level in the body varies depending on the area of the body, so the body will distribute nutrients the way the body needs them from the alkaline foods.

The blood supplies oxygen and nutrients to every cell of the body, and the blood must be kept at a around 7.4 pH to properly support this function.

Metabolic acidosis will occur if the blood’s pH drops below 7.4 (a slightly alkaline range of 7.35 to 7.45), which can result in shock and death.

Maintaining a 7.4pH in the blood is so vitally important to the health of the entire body, consequently the body will leach the alkaline calcium mineral from bones to add to the blood to maintain its required pH level.

The blood is the equilibrium point of homeostasis, and its health determines the health health of he whole body because it feeds the whole body.

The body will use buffering systems to maintain the correct correct pH in the blood. When acidic foods are eaten chronically the body will continuously pull alkaline material from bones and fluid throughout the body.

This will lead to the development of chronic disease including: include osteoporosis, candida overgrowth, acid reflux, weakened immune system, confusion, anxiety, and low energy.

Alkalinity Supports the Immune System and the Death of Disease

Dr. Vega demonstrated the effects of alkalizing the body on disease. He tested the pH levels of the urine of his cancer patients and found them all to be acidic.

He analyzed the blood of his patients while they were acidic and found the environment paralyzed white blood cells and allowed for the proliferation of pathogens and toxins.

He then administered goji berry juice to his patients and raised the pH of their urine to 7.4 and then took blood samples again.

He saw that the alkaline environment woke up the paralyzed white blood cells, and they were then able to clean the blood of pathogens and toxins.
