Because the human body constantly pushes toward acidity as a result of all the biochemical activity
life, effective internal biochemical management is the key to attaining and maintaining
It is critical to learn how to modulate internal biochemistry through the
effective use of alkalizing foods and supplements. Below is an acid/alkaline
forming foods chart to help one understand how foods affect internal biochemistry.
1. Avoid artificial sweeteners – The chemistry of artificial sweeteners
are not only extremely acid
forming but has been linked to a wide variety of ill health problems from allergies and head aches to cancer.
- Prudent health strategy – Avoid consuming any artificial sweeteners and switch to
fresh fruit sweeteners or stevia (fresh, raw, organic
is best). Fresh fruits are generally available at the local produce store and
stevia can be grown in a back yard, herb garden in most temperate weather climates.
2. Consume citrus fruit in the morning – Citrus fruits like grapefruit, lemon and lime are not only
powerful alkalizers, but they lend enormous support to the digestive process.
- Prudent health strategy – Consume fresh citrus fruit or juice in the morning, wait 15 minutes before
eating a carbohydrate or protein to avoid mixing them.
3. Consume dark green leafy vegetables – Any green plant is high in chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is not
only an excellent alkalizer, it provides a wide variety of additional health benefits including extremely
high micro-nutrient (vitamins, minerals, enzymes - life energy) content density and is a powerful antioxidant.
- Prudent health strategy – Consume a minimum of 4 to 6 servings of vegetables daily
(dark green are best).
4. Drink Alkaline (Ionized) or Distilled Water – Ionized (negative
charged) water is one of the most powerful alkalizing agents in any health tool
arsenal. Ionized water in enormously penetrating, meaning it not only alkalizes
the body but it has extraordinary hydrating power as well. Therefore, alkaline,
ionized water provides two enormously powerful health benefits (hydration &
alkalization). Alkaline water is an excellent antacid for those who have occasional stomach acid.
- Prudent health strategy – Drink one ounce of alkalized or distilled water
for every two pounds of bodyweight daily to achieve healthy hydration and
5. Eliminate or significantly reduce consumption of all red meats – All red meats are not only extremely acid
forming but have very low water content and are difficult to digest draining energy reserves and increasing
general biological stress.
- Prudent health strategy – Eliminate consumption of red meat, substitute with small amounts of chicken,
turkey or fresh cold water fish (favoring fish - especially salmon).
6. Learn how to blend fruit and vegetable (smoothie) drinks – Because we are what
we consume as it relates to our health, and raw, organic, freshly prepared, liquid fruits and vegetables are far more
nutrient dense and bioavailable, learning how to make and utilize liquid foods are essential to any
lifestyle. Liquid foods are one of the most powerful tools known to manage internal biochemistry, attain and
maintain optimal health.
- Prudent health strategy – Consuming 1/2-1 quart of fresh blended fruit and vegetable
liquid food daily to alkalize and provide proper amounts of high quality micro-nutrient
(vitamin, mineral, enzyme, life energy) nutrition.
7. Reduce or eliminate all processed and refined foods – All processed foods are highly acidifying.
Not only do they increase acid buildup, they are substantially devoid of health producing
micro-nutrition (vitamin, mineral, enzyme, life energy).
- Prudent health strategy – Eliminate consumption of all processed foods. Substitute with at least
4 servings of raw, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables daily .
8. Reduce stress – Not only does stress acidify the body faster than any food, it tends to shut down
the digestive system, which significantly reduces natural acid and toxin elimination.
- Prudent health strategy – When stress occurs, deep, diaphragm stretching breaths, meditation and yoga
helps reduce stress quickly. While yoga requires a space to exercise, deep breathing and meditation can be
done almost anywhere at any time. Exercise, deep breath and meditate frequently
for better health.
9. Regular exercise program – Exercise increases respiration which not only reduces blood born carbonic
acid but modulates the lymph system which significantly increases acid and toxin elimination and strengthens the
entire body matrix including all vital organs. Exercise of any kind encourages
- Prudent health strategy – Exercise 3-5 times weekly for at least 10 minutes each training session. Cardio
and interval/circuit training are very effective in producing dramatic metabolic
improvements and optimal health results. Rebounding is best for lymph system
modulation and rapid detoxification.
10. Reduce or eliminate all dairy product consumption – Homogenized cow’s milk
and dairy are extremely acid forming. They not only excessively acid forming, they are one of the most mucus
forming foods known. This mucus reaction is largely the result of allergic
reactions to the
chemical properties of milk and dairy products.
- Prudent health strategy – Switch from pasteurized cow’s milk to coconut or almond milk.

The battle for health is over pH and the better a person manages pH the healthier that person well be.
Currently, Americans largely eat for pleasure, with health being a distant consideration if at all. Because
of the enormous damaging effects of biological and oxidative stress associated with
highly processed, acid forming food consumption, it could be
accurately stated that humans are literally eating themselves to death. This truism has shown repeatedly to be scientific
fact, as the only proven way to increase lifespan in animals is through the Calorie Restriction, Optimum
Nutrition (CRON) dietary regimen. In short, this simply means less and live
healthier and longer...
One of the most important concepts people need to understand too efficiently manage internal biochemistry,
attaining and maintaining optimal health, is that what is consumed exerts varying degrees of biological
and oxidative stress on the body. Ultimate health is achieved when the body is absent any acid or toxic
buildup and the exact amount of essential nutrition is consistently delivered. The
alkalizing formula, reduces
biological and oxidative stress to an absolute minimum which results in the slowest progression and
allows the least amount of biological damage (aging) to accumulate.
Remember, "if it’s going to it’s up to me". You and you alone are responsible for your health. The tools in
this article are powerful indeed but if they aren’t use they have no value what so ever. Be reasonable and

"Illness and disease are
optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen
It’s important to understand that optimal health can only
be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements
are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).
The following are the cornerstones of success with anything
in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you
will achieve excellence in anything you do.

commitment advances positive
tenacity promotes success

OPTIMAL HEALTH ACTION STEPS
1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence
Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity,
denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary
wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death.
DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR
HEALTH, WHO WILL?
The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of
either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely
true when it comes to health.
Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment)
are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments.
Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles
solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge
commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define
the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to
accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)
