Acid and alkaline forming foods
Acid & alkaline forming foods...
Science has divided foods, like chemicals, into two classes: Alkaline forming and Acid forming foods.
Your diet should have 80% alkaline forming foods...
If you eat over 80% alkaline foods, you preserve the normal alkalinity of the blood and will not need to think about diets. Your body will stay in balance and will adjust to its ideal weight. Acid forming foods need not be excluded entirely - but use them sensibly and in the correct balance, so they will supply the greatest good.
Other alkaline forming facts...
Rest and sleep are alkalinisers. So are exercise, fresh air, pleasure, laughter, good conversation, enjoyment - especially love!
Acid forming facts...
Acidifiers are worry, fear, anger, hatred, envy, selfishness and greed, so try to cleanse these out of your system as well.
