What is an alkaline diet?
In a nutshell, an alkaline foods diet (also known as the
alkaline ash diet, alkaline acid diet, alkalising and the acid alkaline
diet) is a healthy eating lifestyle based on eating foods that
metabolise (burn) to leave an alkaline residue (ash) of minerals such
as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper. Foods are therefore
classified as alkaline, acidic or neutral according to the pH
of the solution created with their ash in water.
What can I eat?
In general this means eating lots of alkaline foods (i.e.
alkaline forming foods), such as green
vegetables, some fruits, nuts and seeds, healthy oils, taking dietary
supplements, such as wheatgrass juice and
drinking plenty of water. It also means avoiding acidic foods, such as
meat and dairy products, refined sugars and carbohydrates, processed
foods, artificial sweeteners, caffeine and alcohol.
There is no single definitive alkaline foods list and you’ll
find that as you research this subject more, there are many lists of
alkaline foods and they all have some discrepancies between them.
Please see my alkaline foods list for an
explanation and a guiding list.
“Why should I eat alkaline foods?” You may be asking.
It all comes down to body chemistry. Your blood is your body’s
living ‘river’ and needs to be kept at a pH (potential of Hydrogen,
scale of how acid or alkaline something where 1= extremely acidic and
14= extremely alkaline) of 7.35, slightly alkaline. Your body has a
buffer system that it uses to keep your blood within a tight range of
this pH, a deviation from which can be fatal.
The alkaline diet originated in the observation that an
underlying metabolic acidity, caused by the widespread Western, fast
food lifestyle, is a common denominator among many degenerative and
autoimmune diseases, which can be preventable
by proper nutrition.
Dr Robert Young is the leading
researcher and advocate of the benefits of an alkalising. He has
conducted well-designed scientific research with substantiating results
and his book The pH Miracle has been a
bestseller for years. Anthony Robbins,
world-famous inspirational speaker, is a big promoter of it, as well as
many other heath gurus and celebrities.

"Laura, I'm totally new to the alkaline diet thing. After 6 months of incredible stomach/esophageal problems, and 3 months of doctoring, a friend suggested the alkaline diet and some supplements to try and find relief. After just 2-3 weeks on a strict alkaline diet and taking a regimen of supplements, my stomach and severe GERD symptoms are already much better...thank you for the great resource.”
