ALKALINE DIET - IS THIS THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

I have been reading about how to reverse the acidity in blood to an alkaline level that will promote
energy, get rid of gas and bloating, cure gerd, improve the digestive system , help with athritis and general aches and pains and lose weight.  Wow - so is this the way of the future for all of us or maybe the older generation or is this the cure for the overweight.  I am not sure that I believe all these claims but I could do with more energy for one so I am going to investigate further.  There is a supplement on the market something greens which may or may not work but is one of those long, long winded adds that go on and on and then at the end reveal the product they are trying to sell.  So I figure this may not be the way to go but to look at the diet itself.  I have only just touched on it and it looks a little involved but mainly as I see it, it involves eating the correct combination of foods to reduce the acidity in our blood cells.

I found a list of alkaline foods below


  • Examples of Alkalining Vegetables: Beets, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Celery, Cucumber, Kale, Lettuce, Onions, Peas, Peppers, Spinach
  • Examples of Alkalizing Fruits: Apple, Banana, Berries, Cantaloupe, Grapes, Melon, Lemon, Orange, Peach, Pear, Watermelon
  • Alkalizing Protein: Almonds, Chestnuts, Tofu
  • Alkalizing Spices: Cinnamon, Curry, Ginger, Mustard, Sea Salt
Now to work out the correct way to eat these foods and with what. Is anyone out there on this diet and can they help me out here.  Would be greatly appreciated
