List of Alkaline Foods – The pH Balanced Diet

List of Alkaline Foods – The pH Balanced Diet
By: Christopher Vasey, ND Acidification in the body comes as a result of THREE primary things: 1. Eating too many acidifying foods which create an acid ash in your body. This is where proper diet comes in. By eating a diet of 80% alkalizing foods, you’ll eliminate the production of excess acid in your body. 2. Not only that, but they proliferate in an acidic body. 3. By increasing your intake of alkaline-mineral rich water and alkaline supplements, you will replenish your body’s capacity to neutralize excess acids. For the purposes of identifying the acid or alkaline potential of foods, we have divided the following list into three basic categories – alkalizing, slightly acidifying, and very acidifying. The classification used here presents foods in a three-column chart. This is not a precise hierarchical organization, where each food occupies a set place with regard to the others; we currently lack the objective criteria necessary for establishing such an exact hierarchy.

Ancient Secrets: the Truth About Energy Healing Energy is all around us – right? Actually, we ARE energy, and when we need to heal our physical bodies, we do so by applying the right energy healing techniques to raise our vibration to correspond with the energy of well-being. Okay, admittedly that’s a bit “out there” given the teachings of modern medicine that focuses on alleviating physical and psychological symptoms without addressing the true cause of the ailments… the cause being an overabundance of low-vibrating energy in the individual’s energy field or imbalances in that field.

Sorry, Foodies: We're About to Ruin Kale If eating kale is good for me, then eating a whole lot it must be even better. Right? John E.

Indeed, turmeric turns the entire drug-based medical model on its head. Instead of causing far more side effects than therapeutic ones, as is the case for most patented pharmaceutical medications, turmeric possesses hundreds of potential side benefits, having been empirically demonstrated to positively modulate over 160 different physiological pathways in the mammalian body. While no food or herb is right for everyone, and everything has the potential for unintended, adverse side effects, turmeric is truly unique in its exceptionally high margin of safety vis-à-vis the drugs it has been compared with, e.g. hydrocortisone, ibuprofen, chemotherapy agents. Some of the most amazing demonstrated properties include:

Scientific Proof Thoughts & Intentions Can Alter The Physical World Around Us Dr. Masaru Emoto, a researcher and alternative healer from Japan has given the world a good deal of evidence of the magic of positive thinking.

His experiments demonstrate that human thoughts and intentions can alter physical reality, such as the molecular structure of water. Given that humans are comprised of at least 60% water,his discovery has far reaching implications… can anyone really afford to have negative thoughts or intentions? The rice experiment is another famous Emoto demonstration of the power of negative thinking (and conversely, the power of positive thinking.)
