The Alkaline or Acid Effect of Food

Filed under: Bragg Book Excerpts,Patricia Bragg — admin @ 9:43 AM

The Alka­line or Acid Effect of Food

I hope you enjoy this excerpt from my Veg­e­tar­ian Health Recipe For Super Energy & Long Life to 12o book!

Foods, such as meat and eggs, that are high in pro­teins tend to exert an acid effect in the body because when they are “burned” in the body, a num­ber of the nor­mal “end prod­ucts” are acidic, such as uric acid, sul­phuric acid and phos­phoric acid. How­ever, these acids are ren­dered harm­less when they are bal­anced with alka­line mate­r­ial from the body, as they then form neu­tral salts.
The neu­tral salts are elim­i­nated nor­mally by the kidneys.

Fruits and veg­eta­bles usu­ally exert an alka­line effect because they con­tain the alka­line salts, such as cal­cium, and neu­tral­ize the acid prod­ucts in the body. When we eat fruits and veg­eta­bles with free acids such as cit­ric (in lemons), malic (in apples), tar­taric (in grapes) and lac­tic (in sauer­kraut), the body burns them up and con­verts them to car­bonic acid, which is eas­ily elim­i­nated in the breath. The body is pro­tected by “buffers” in the blood so it is not sub­ject to sud­den changes in its nor­mally slight alka­line reaction.

It is hard for the body to “burn up” oxalic acid when present in rhubarb, chard, kale and cocoa (choco­late). When these foods are eaten, a lib­eral sup­ply of nat­ural cal­cium from other sources, such as mus­tard greens, aspara­gus, cab­bage, tofu, figs and prunes should be pro­vided. A nor­mal, healthy body is equipped to uti­lize effi­ciently the healthy foods eaten regard­less of alka­line or acid prop­er­ties, espe­cially when you add raw, organic  Bragg Apple Cider Vine­gar to sal­ads, green veg­eta­bles, etc.
This pro­vides a healthy acid–alkaline bal­ance for healthy digestion.

Discover & Guard Your Body’s Vital Force

Dis­cover & Guard Your Body’s Vital Force

To sim­plify this expla­na­tion of The Tox­i­c­less Diet, Body Purifi­ca­tion and Heal­ing Sys­tem, we are going to call this vital heal­ing power “Vital Force”! All of us must have this Vital Force energy in order to stay alive! When the Vital Force is com­pletely exhausted, then there is death. Many peo­ple live at a very low rate of “phys­i­cal vibra­tion” because they have a very low amount of Vital Force. Then there are peo­ple who live a healthy lifestyle every day who enjoy a high rate of phys­i­cal vibra­tion with high energy! Their Vital Force is high!

 

Every day of your life you meet peo­ple with a high amount of Vital Force. On the other hand, every day you also see tired, exhausted, ner­vous, frus­trated peo­ple full of aches, pains, dis­eases, stresses, strains and ten­sions. Most of these peo­ple are pre­ma­turely old … they appear and act older than their cal­en­dar years! Peo­ple with a low quota of Vital Force have a low resis­tance to infec­tious dis­eases … they are the peo­ple who have fre­quent colds, flu, strep throat and many other dis­or­ders! They are the peo­ple who are chron­i­cally tired, suf­fer­ing from what is often called chronic fatigue syn­drome or Epstein-Barr. They are the peo­ple with poor mem­o­ries who are full of aches and pains. They are life­less, pale and often ane­mic. They are often unhappy, irri­ta­ble peo­ple that noth­ing and no one can please!

Great Quote!

Great Quote!

Too often we under­es­ti­mate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word,
a lis­ten­ing ear, an hon­est com­pli­ment, or the small­est act of car­ing,
all of which have the poten­tial to turn a life around.
– Leo Buscaglia, author, who praised Bragg teachings
