Alkalizing the body is not an easy task for most people, but the benefits are many. This chart shows the effects of various foods on the human body. As you may notice, the initial pH of the food is irrelevant. For instance, while lemons and limes are naturally acidic fruits, they have a strong alkalizing effect upon the body when processed in digestion. For more information on the benefits of alkalinity, read The Link Between Body pH and Disease. You should also watch our documentary, The Cancer Report.
Pharmaceuticals are usually inherently toxic to the human body, and they cause disruptions in the gastrointestinal tract. They often cause the stomach to poorly digest foods, which results in malnourishment. The lack of absorbed minerals offsets the pH of the body, which causes a cascading snowball effect in which it is less able to absorb other nutrients. In this state, the body is more vulnerable to sickness and cancers. The medical establishment describes the most toxic drugs as being strong. So, the stronger drugs are those which will imbalance the pH the most, and will cause cascading health problems.
