Acid-Alkaline Food Values

Acid-Alkaline Food Values

Based on Dr. Theodore A. Baroody's work

Over acidity, which can become a dangerous condition that weakens all body systems, is very common today. It gives rise to an internal environment conducive to disease, as opposed to a pH-balanced environment which allows normal body function necessary for the body to resist disease. A healthy body maintains adequate alkaline reserves to meet emergency demands. When access acids must be neutralized our alkaline reserves are depleted leaving the body in a weakened condition.

Note: This work is based on limited understanding of how the pH control system actually work. If your dominance is Autonomic, this chart will work for you. If you are an oxidizer, this will be exactly backwards. We are quoting this here more for historic reasons than for useful information. If you want to manage your pH, you need to know your Metabolic Type.
