Acid Forming Foods vs. Alkaline Forming Foods
Humans eat a variety of foods that are classified as acidic or alkaline. Acidic foods are defined as foods that increase acid waste products in your blood. Alkaline foods are foods that produce ash that neutralizes acid products in your blood. Holistic practitioners believe that disease arises from consuming too many acidic or alkaline foods and throws the pH of the body into chaos, according to naturopathic doctor Christopher Vasey. Christopher Vasey maintains that the human body works to maintain a pH level between 7.36 and 7.42 in order for enzymes, nutrients and minerals to function properly.
