How can I make myself more alkaline and less acidic?
Acid-alkaline balance is important. Processed food, cooked food diets, pollution, and stress leave most people's blood pH very acidic, which prevents optimal cellular activity and immune system functions, and leaches alkaline minerals from the body (such as dissolving away calcium from your bones). Meat, dairy, processed sugar, starches and most grains, and most nuts and seeds are acid-forming. Fortunately, fruits and vegetables are alkalizing, so eating more of these and fewer of the acidifying foods creates an optimal blood pH level by raising alkalinity and reducing acidity.
