Disease Forming Foods Vs Healing Foods

Before we go much further into this article, I want to bring to your attention that there are basically two kinds of foods. The ones that heal and nourish the body and the ones that poison it. This is plain and simple.

Coincidentally, scientists, biologists and nutritionists label them as acid/mucus forming and alkaline/mucus binding foods.

That being stated, it should be noted that balanced body chemistry is of utmost importance for the maintenance of health and correction of diseases.

Acidosis, or over-acidity in the body tissues, is one of the basic causes of many diseases, especially the arthritic and rheumatic ones.

All foods are “burned” in the body–more commonly called “digested”– leaving an ash as the result of the “burning”, or the digestion. This food ash can be neutral, acid or alkaline, depending largely on the mineral composition of the foods. Some foods leave an acid residue or ash, some leave the opposite-which is an alkaline residue. The acid ash (acidosis) results when there is a depletion of the alkaline reserve or the reduction in the reserve supply of fixed alkaline bases in the blood and the tissues of the body.

It is therefore very important that there is a proper ratio between acid and alkaline foods in the diet.

When such an ideal ratio is maintained, the body has a strong resistance against disease. In the healing of disease, when the patient usually has acidosis, the higher the ratio of alkaline elements in the diet, the faster it will be for the patient to recover due to the fact that alkalis neutralize the acids. Therefore in the treatment of most diseases it is important that the patient’s diet includes plenty of alkaline/mucus removing foods to offset the effects of acid-forming foods and leave a safe level or supply of alkalinity.

A healthy body usually keeps large alkaline reserves that are used to meet the emergency demands if too many acid-producing foods are consumed. However, these normal reserves can be reduced. When the alkaline-acid ratio drops to 3 to 1, health can be seriously tampered with. Therefore, do keep in mind that your body can function normally and sustain health only in the presence of adequate alkaline reserves and the proper acid- alkaline ratio in all the body tissues and the blood.

It is worth mentioning that the main reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the typical American diet.

Dare I say this applies to mankind on a global scale. Man’s diet today in most ‘advanced’ or industrialized countries is too high in acid producing animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline producing foods like fresh vegetables and fruits.

In addition, a lot of people eat acid producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks. Several people use too many drugs, which are acid forming; and we use artificial chemical sweeteners like NutraSweet, Spoonful, Sweet ‘N Low, Equal, or Aspartame, which are basically poison and also extremely acid forming.

Consequently, suffice it to say that one of the best things we can do to correct an overly acidic body is to clean up one’s diet and lifestyle. It’s really not that difficult or extreme, stop eating the acid/disease forming foods and to replace them with the alkaline/body healing foods.

Generally, alkaline forming foods include: most fruits, green and root vegetables and some miscellaneous items, on the other hand acid forming foods include: meat, fish, poultry, eggs, grains, and legumes and ALL PROCESSED FOODS (canned, junk, convenience, instant etc).

That being stated, another interesting yet noteworthy factor is that although it might seem that citrus fruits would have an acidifying effect on the body, the citric acid they contain actually has an alkalinizing effect in the system.

Note that a food’s acid or alkaline forming tendency in the body has nothing to do with the actual pH of the food itself. For example, lemons are very acidic; however the end products they produce after digestion and assimilation are very alkaline so, lemons are alkaline forming in the body. Likewise, meat will test alkaline before digestion, however, it leaves a very acidic residue in the body so, like all animal products, meat is very acid forming.

At this stage, one could ask: “well, why do we eat so much acid foods?”

To answer that question, several reasons come to mind and it must be stressed that after years of misinformation, influences by media, habits passed on from generation to generation, millions of dollars spent on marketing and what really is false advertising, we, as a people are now facing more dietary based health challenges than ever before.

What’s more disturbing but not a surprise per se, is that it is no coincidence that the rapidly growing numbers of cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes connects almost exactly with the rise in consumption of acid forming foods such as sugars, trans fats, fast food, refined food and white breads.

On the other hand, our consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables has decreased dramatically.

Therefore, for optimal health and maximum resistance to disease, it is imperative that your diet is slightly over-alkaline.

Acid forming foods (such as ALL processed foods, white sugar, white flour, carbonated beverages and artificial chemical sweetener’s like NutraSweet, Equal, or Aspartame) should be eliminated or at least drastically reduced. In addition, you would do better with the least amount of meat and milk products as they are very productive of mucus and hinder the optimal digestion of foods and the proper absorption of nutrients.

The internal balance of your pH is very important, however, on an unfortunate note, few medical practitioners in western medicine are aware of the major role it plays in causing diseases or for whatever reason choose not to divulge this to their patients if in fact they do know this. Then again look at most doctors, several of them are ironically enough not great pictures of health.

That being stated, fresh fruits and vegetables are alkaline forming in the body and contain many electrolyte minerals that help to maintain a healthy pH balance of 7.4 and a reserve of critical electrolytes.

Alkalizing the body fluids (raising pH) is one of the single most important health regeneration benefits available as disease causing microforms (fungi, bacteria, virus etc.) cannot survive in an alkaline oxygenated environment.

Therefore, for your edification, here are tables of common foods with an approximate potential acidity (disease forming potential) or alkalinity (healing potential), as present in one ounce of food.

In addition to the text provided, do note that such practices as fertilizing by too much minerals can also make harmless foods, harmful or at least reduce their good properties.

Now, the acid | alkaline food tables are provided for illustration purposes. The fact that some foods might be listed as mucus binding (alkaline) doesn’t mean its use is endorsed per se. This text focuses on mainly fruits and vegetables.

Well, it is my hope that this article has illustrated in as much detail as possible the sources of Disease Forming and Body Healing Foods. It is also my hope that you as a reader will make the necessary adjustments for your own benefits.

P.S. Here is An Article On Common Pollutants In our Households that we would want to avoid or at least drastically reduce using on a daily basis.
