Alkaline Acid Food Chart

Nathan Batalion, Global Health Activist, Healingtalks Editor

(Healingtalks) Food consumption worldwide has changed from so-called “primitive” whole raw foods to highly processed ones with little nutritional value. As a result, we see huge increases in chronic diseases. This is why it is ever more important to re-establish one’s health on a surer footing. One approach is to find an ideal balance between alkaline and acid forming foods.

This table helps identify food pH-levels. Each food is assigned a number which reflects its relative alkalinity (+) or acidity (-) per ounce (28.35g). According to this model, the higher the + number, the better the food is to eat

The New Biology and pH Miracle by Dr. Young


Definitions

Alkalosis  – A condition reducing hydrogen ion concentration of arterial blood plasma (alkalemia). Generally alkalosis is said to occur when arterial pH exceeds 7.45.

Acidosis is an increased acidity of the blood plasma. Arterial pH falls below 7.35.  Arterial blood gas analysis and other tests are required to separate the main causes. (Source: Wikipedia)
