Alkaline Foods
The Key To Transformed Health

Alkaline foods are essential to achieving the right balance of alkalinity and acidity in your body. Today the majority of folks consuming typical Western diets suffer from 'acidity'. That is not to say they get 'heartburn' (though that may be part of their health problems!). The whole system tends to be too acidic and this affects physical health at a cellular level.

Alkalizing the body can apparently lead to transformed health. It seems that there is an ever growing list of devotees who have experienced the massive health benefits of reducing their acidity and increasing their alkalinity.

To start the process of alkalizing effectively you need to know which foods to choose. Dr Robert Young, a pre-eminent advocate of alkalization, suggests that when you eat you should employ the 80/20 rule. That is to say 80% of the food on your plate should be chosen from the alkaline food list. This will ensure that you begin to achieve a positive alkaline balance.

With evidence mounting to suggest that 'acidification' of the body could be the major pre-cursor to almost all health threats you can name, you may begin to see the potential sense of adopting a n alkaline lifestyle.

Dr Young and his wife, Shelly Redford Young have between them published some of the key texts about how to alkalize and why you should raise your bodies alkalinity. Dr Youngs also undertook an informative presentation about the basic theory behind alkalizing. Below are some links to publications and three segments of his presentation that provide impressive listening. They are 'cut' into 9 to 10 minute 'chunks' so you can download and listen to them more easily. (You can also see a TV interview where they talk about alkalizing your diet for diabetes here)
