pH is the measurement of potential hydrogen: simplified, it's the amount of positively charged hydrogen ions (acid) and negatively charged hydroxyl ions (alkaline) we carry. Our blood is slightly alkaline and most tissues should be as well. But our body is forced to store acids in our tissues when too many are consumed or generated for our body to excrete.
Additionally, alkaline minererals, such as calcium and magnesium, are robbed from bones and muscle to buffer these excess acids. A diet high in acid foods, such as sugar, meats, grains, coffee, and drugs, causes an improper pH balance in our tissues, which leads to poor health and, according to some, proliferation of microbes, fungus, yeast and molds.
The author writes:
"Instead of being addicted to sugar, stress, adrenaline rushes, conflict, or food additives, you will be addicted to feeling energetic, sleeping well at night, thinking clearly, and maintaining a balanced mood. Your body, your mind, and your spirit will feel strong in a way that can never be achieved with an acidic lifestyle."
In this book you'll discover:
* some problems with our current food choices
* an example of a typical acid diet
* how acids are produced internally
* how various diseases are caused by this diet: e.g., diabetes, depression, osteoporosis, CFS, arthritis, obesity, cancer
* how our body responds physiologically to ingestion of acids
* a quiz to rate your potential level of acidity
* case studies of various individuals who transformed their health through modifying their acid/alkaline balance
* supplements and therapies
* a chart of acid and alkaline foods
* a one-week meal plan for increasing alkalinity
* over 30 pages of recipes, some of which look quite appetizing and easy to make
The shortcomings include too little information on physiology (which is only important to someone like me who wants to understand the finer details), superficial instructions for testing urine and saliva pH and interpreting the results (which probably only matters to the anal retentive among us), too much cooked food with improper food combining, and minor reliance on gadgetry and technology. But these shortcoming pale in comparison the wealth of information from which anyone can benefit. Definitely recommended for the health seeker.
