The skin is provided with approximately 1,500,000 sweat glands, excreting perspiration, which is acidic. The lungs give off carbonic acid gas which is released as carbon dioxide and water. The burning of food and oxygen in the body cells produces this gas which is taken by lymph and blood to the lungs to be exhaled.
More processes of life are aided by alkaline fluids than acid. Both are necessary.
Alkalis are continually being consumed and the supply depleted. Since they are continually being consumed, there is the danger that the supply will be exhausted. It is very plain then, that if foods will influence the alkalinity and acidity of the body we need toeat abundantly of that which will keep the alkalinity of the body high, and eat sparingly of foods which will increase its acidity.
The ideal ratio according to Dr. Roger Berg, the world's foremost authority on the relationship between the acid-alkaline ratio in the diet, is about 80% alkaline producing foods and 20% acid producing foods.
The correct pH balance of our blood can be maintained by choosing carefully the foods one eats. Another factor, which influences the correct balance, is the ability of the kidneys, skin pores and lungs to eliminate acids. It is important that these organs function properly.
Balanced body chemistry is of utmost importance for the maintenance of health and
correction of disease. Acidosis, or over-acidity of the body tissues is one of the basic
causes of many diseases, especially arthritis. It is therefore vitally important that there is a
proper ratio between acid and alkaline foods in the diet.
The natural ratio in a healthyindividual is 4 to 1 - four parts alkaline to one part acid, or 80% to 20%. When this ratio is maintained, the body has a strong resistance against disease.
Here is good eating to you!
