Reducing Acid in your diet ..#3

Acid Acid Acid…….Alkalize Your Body

This is one of the big things that you started to hear about  last year.  Everywhere you turned in the Alternative World you hear Alkalize. Why is it so important to alkalize your body and why do we need to?  Like everything else that we do today, we are eating the wrong things.  Most of the foods today, cause more acid in the body.  Which in turn can cause more disease.

All of the fluids in our body should be alkalize, however the organs are acidic.  Remember back to our days in chemistry class, where we learned that in order to get something to diffuse it has to be different from the environment.  If two things are the same then one can not move into the other.  This is the same for our body. If the fluids in the body are acidic as the organs are then the toxins from the organs can not move into the fluids in order to be moved out of the body.  The toxins get trapped in the organs and eventually will cause that organ to become diseased.

That being said below are some everyday foods that will cause acidity in the body.

List from Dr. Oz:

  1. Olive oil (neutral)
  2. Low-fat yogurt
  3. Whole milk
  4. Butter
  5. Lentils, boiled
  6. White bread
  7. Whole-wheat cooked spaghetti
  8. Plain bagel
  9. Peanuts, dry-roasted
  10. Walnuts
  11. Hot dog
  12. Chicken
  13. Pepperoni
  14. Lean beef
  15. Wild cooked trout
  16. Whole egg, hard boiled
  17. Oats
  18. Brown rice
  19. Cooked salmon
  20. White canned tuna fish
  21. Mozzarella
  22. Canned sardines
  23. Cooked turkey bacon
  24. American/cheddar cheese
  25. Parmesan cheese (most acid-producing)
