The alkaline diet is based on evidence that suggests that acid-forming foods prevent the body from healing properly and the diet replaces those foods with alkaline options. Acid-forming foods leave an ash in your body as your system works to metabolize the food. This leaves your body acidic and potentially makes you more susceptible to diseases and illnesses. In contrast, alkaline foods keep your body basic and is believed to provide stronger protection for the body.

Alkaline foods have been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, both of which are huge contributing factors to cardiovascular diseases. The diet can also influence and help with weight loss, which in turn reduces the risk of contracting type 2 diabetes and osteoarthritis. Though it has not yet been proven to prevent cancer, an alkaline diet can make some chemotherapy treatments more effective and less toxic on the body.


Acidic foods include meat, poultry, fish, grains, eggs, dairy, caffeine, and alcohol and consist of protein, phosphate, and sulfur. Alkaline foods are typically fruits, nuts, vegetables, soybeans, tofu and seeds, consisting of calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

    The only symptom that I had was tingling in my legs especially at night after I retired to bed. The tingling became more severe where I could not get them to stop. I thought I had restless leg syndrome. My doctor tested me for diabetes and found that I had type II diabetes and the sugar was attacking my legs because it had no place to go. He put me on a sugar free diet and Actos and within one to two days my symptom were gone.. One day I got extremely sick, could not keep anything down, had blurry vision, a rapid heartbeat.I Started taking metformin 1000 mg twice daily. I am writing this to inform others that nothing was really working to help my condition.I went off the metformin (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started on Diabetes herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, my symptoms totally declined over a 7 weeks use of the Diabetes natural herbal formula. i am now doing very well, Visit there website This treatment is incredible!
