"When our bodies drop in energy because of the kinds of foods we are eating, it makes us susceptible to disease. Here’s how that works. When we eat foods, they are metabolized and leave a waste or ash in our bodies. This ash is either acidic in nature or alkaline, depending on the foods. If it is alkaline, then it can be quickly extracted from our bodies with little energy."--The Secret of Shambhala
PH Acid Alkaline Chart - PH: Acid vs. Alkaline: What’s the Big Deal? ::: Acidity and alkalinity is measured on the pH scale, which ranges from 1 to 14. Our blood is very tightly maintained at a pH between 7.35 and 7.45, slightly alkaline. Very small fluctuations can occur, but if the blood moves out of this range in either direction very serious health problems occur. The ONLY foods that create alkalinity in the body are vegetables and fruits. ALL other foods create acidity on some level.
