The average diet for many of us consist of mostly harmful and acid forming foods like processed sugars, synthetic sweeteners, grains that has been highly refined, consistently produced dairy products and meats, and organisms that have been genetically altered.

This list, as well as an excess of other factors in our environments (such as insomnia, chronic stress, and prescription medications), translates into the fact that more and more people will be diagnosed with a chronic illness or condition for which medicine won’t have a cure for. By incorporating alkaline foods into the diet, many of the illness can be completely eliminated.

One of the main hidden problem with this lifestyle—and there are plentiful—is that most people do not understand that the body must balance the blood’s pH levels at a lightly alkaline level of 7 in order to continue to thrive on this earth. Adding alkaline foods to our diets will help to achieve that balance. When someone consumes food to “break down” for energy, the process transforms it into a dust that is either acidic or alkaline. The laws of biochemistry further breaks down that it is not the organic matter of foods, but the inorganic matter that decides either the level of acidity or alkalinity of this dusty remains.

This is the reason that balance is either achieved or hindered as a straight result of the types of foods we decide to consume. According to Conscious Living Center, every food provided to us contains both acid and alkaline-forming features. Adding too many foods in our diets that have a high acidity level can be very detrimental to our health, with “acidosis” being most often the prognosis amongst diabetics, as an i.e. This happens because when we cannot get the nutrient needed to maintain the body’s alkaline state, it will instead pull from its own reserves, like the bones or other tissues in the body—destroying its power to restore itself and detoxify heavy metals, thus making a person more susceptible to tiredness and sickness. And the boundary is not huge. Having a slightly acidic pH level of 6.9 can result in a lot of harm.

When it comes down to it all, you want to maintain balance because eating too many alkaline foods can also have its fair share of problems on the long run even though the risk of this is clearly less likely, given the nature of today’s diet. In order to fight off the effects of such diet, we have to incorporate alkaline foods into our everyday meals as often as we can. Here is a list of the alkaline foods to get you started.
