A virus cannot survive in a body that is slightly alkaline. “Not too great quantities of acid-producing foods should be taken. Citrus fruits, to be sure, are NOT acid-producing; they are alkaline producing, unless combined WITH starches at the same meal. Divide the diet into a 20% acid-producing foods and 80% alkaline-producing.” (257-202)
Alkaline blood pH protects healthy cells and balances essential mineral levels improving immune function. Alkaline producing foods are: fruits (including citrus) and vegetables, egg yokes, soybeans and tofu, and some nuts, seeds, and legumes are alkaline-promoting foods; as are cucumbers, green beans, garlic, lettuce, carrots, almonds, olive oil, tofu, soybeans, pears, peaches, blueberries, watermelon, bananas, pineapple, cherries, and the like. Acid producing foods are meat, chicken, pork, fish, egg whites, diary, grains, walnuts, peanuts, and cashews.
Try to eat 80% alkaline and 20% acid - need both for health. –John, stay healthy!
