Alkaline Diet Recommendations?

Posted by Jeannine on 06/13/2006

I went off my alkaline food diet and suffered greatly. I'm still taking the supplements every other day. My knees hurt so much that I'm back on the diet. I also purchased the Quantum Touch Book on the Internet. I have a question about the make-at-home body alkalizer (baking soda, citric acid potassium...) you recommended. How do I take this? As a powder or a liquid? In water? I'm not sure. Please let me know.

An alkaline food diet is very important. Many foods we eat are quite acid. Our body needs alkaline foods. It is difficult to be on an alkaline foods as they are not as tempting as the acid foods. I get into this problem all the time! They are one of the causes arthritis. Just remember that high glycemic diets (carbohydrates, grain, flour, and sweets) are quite acid. I have a question about the make-at-home body alkalizer (baking soda, citric acid potassium...) you recommended. How do I take this? As a powder or a liquid? In water? Mix everything in water in a full glass or half glass of water. There are two ways to mix it. one way is to add citric acid first then baking soda until a precipitates start forming then I stop. Then I add a pinch of potassium and magnesium to the mix. Another way is to add the baking soda first, then keep adding the citric acid,stir until the baking soda precipitates disappear. Then add a pinch of potassium and magnesium. The water will fizz. Wait for a couple of minutes until the fizz is down. Then drink it down on an empty stomach. Wait until all the liquids are in the intestines. Do not eat for at least an hour or two. If you eat immediately this will usually cause loose stools. The alkaline and the salts in your foods don't mix well. Of course if you want to cure constipation, that is another matter.
