Balance Your Health with Food

Most industrialized societies eat an acid-producing diet, and an overly-acidic system has been blamed for everything from depression, insomnia, and fatigue to cancer. Fortunately, simply making a few dietary changes can balance our acidity and help us toward more radiant good health.

Find out which foods to avoid, and which can help you to feel better, right here:

Eggs, strong cheeses, animal fats
Peanut oil, hardened oils (margarine)

Sweets: white sugar, pastry, chocolate, candy, jellies and preserves
Oleaginous fruits: walnuts, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds
Commercially manufactured sweet drinks, especially sodas
Coffee, tea, cocoa, wine
Condiments: Mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup

Eat MORE of the following ALKALIZING FOODS

Potatoes
Green vegetables, raw or cooked: salad greens, green beans, cabbage and so on
Colored vegetables: beets, carrots (except tomatoes, which are acidifying)
Corn (kernels or cooked as polenta)
Milk (liquid or powdered form), large-curd cottage cheese, cream, butter
Bananas
Almonds, Brazil nuts, Chestnuts
Dried fruits: figs, dates, raisins (excluding those that are acidic to the taste, like apricots, apples, pineapple)

Black olives preserved in oil
Avocado
Cold-pressed oils
Natural sugar

very interesting but different blood types require different foods. I believe this is the real key to good health. Consider why some people can eat certain things and others can be made unwell by the same things. All because of their particular blood type. Think about it. Lyn. UK

Exscept of good choice of food it is important how to prepare and store meale.Not to cook in the fryig-pan, not grill, better is cooking in biling water a few minutes.

Hi, my name is Emanuele I did find the fountain of youth in 1985 and I practice it since then.The texture of my skin has not changed in over 20 years, view my recente photo in my web site emanueletechnique.com Practice and share the most fast green revolution that can not be stop. the powers of a toxicless diet are bigger then immaginable. the very fast reverse aging effect of this simple practice has never experience before. One day and a half and two days of this technique will let peaple around us notice the difference and make the usual remark: hey your skin look better. www.emanueletechnique.com

I agree with moderation is key. I don't believe in organized one for all diets. Everyone is different. If your body is too acidic try reducing your stress, this is #1 cause of an acidic body.
