What is your pH level?

In order for our bodies to function properly and fight off diseases and even cancer we need to maintain a proper pH balance.  A diet that contains 35% acid forming foods and 65% alkaline will help with the pH stability.  Just like a swimming pool needs the proper balance or bacteria will form, the human body's pH level needs to be monitored.  There are many (human body) pH test kits available.

High acid foods:

Alcohol, Artichoke root, Barley, Bread, Buckwheat, Caffeine, Coffee, Corn, dry and products, Custards, Drugs, Flour all, Ginger preserved, Honey, Lentil dry, Mate, Millet, Oatmeal, Peanuts, Rice all, Rye Grain, Soy Bread, Soy noodles, Sorghum, grain, Spaghetti and other Pasta, Sugar Cane, raw beet, Tobacco, Walnut (English), Wheat grain.
