What Foods are Alkaline?
There is a delicate balance of PH in our world. I first learned about PH when I had a job as a carpet cleaner. Everything that we used to clean carpets was based on the PH scale. The PH of the stain would tell you what PH you need to get it out. It was remotely scientific. Lately there has been a lot more science surrounding the PH of foods and the PH levels of the Human Body. Here is a list of food that are consider good for helping to restore the bodies ph.
Most fruits are alkaline.

What does it mean to have an Acidic System?
Acid causes oxidation which in turn causes decay. Disturbances related to excess acidity are: weakening of the skin, hair, nails, teeth, and bones. Acid has also been linked to problems with digestion such as: leaky gut syndrome, IBS, Ulcers. It has been linked to Candida and many types of allergies. Chronic Fatigue is just one of the many symptoms of excess acid.
In a free range chicken egg, the egg white that acts as a protective shield to the growing embryo has a PH of 9 which is highly alkaline. While the yolk itself has a PH of 6.5 which is just slightly acidic”.
