"Alkalinity can be increased by consuming less meat and sweets and more vegetables and fruits. Although eating fruit to increase alkalinity may seem to be a contradiction because some fruits (especially citrus) are acidic outside the body, digestion uses up their acidic components, leaving an alkaline residue (ash). Thus the net effect is alkaline-producing in the system.
Edgar Cayce consistently emphasized the importance of maintaining a proper acid/alkaline balance in the body. For most individuals, Cayce noted that “a normal diet is about twenty percent acid to eighty percent alkaline-producing.”
According to Cayce, numerous factors can increase acidity including negative emotional states, inadequate chewing (mastication) of food, and poor eliminations. Perhaps the most common factor cited by Cayce is diet. Eating acid-producing foods or combining foods improperly (even alkaline-producing foods) is said to lead to hyperacidity, even to “superacidity” in some instances.
High systemic acidity was consistently noted by Edgar Cayce in conditions such as arthritis. He sometimes observed that infectious agents (such as viruses) do not thrive in an alkaline environment: “cold CANNOT - DOES NOT - exist in alkalines.” In another instance when asked how to prevent colds, Cayce responded, “Keep the body alkaline! Cold germs do not live in an alkaline system! They do breed in any acid or excess of acids of any character left in the system.”
Several solid scientific studies are supportive of Cayce’s assertion that alkalinity can provide protection from viral infections such as cold or flu. Interestingly, many viruses, including the rhinoviruses most often responsible for the common cold infect host cells by fusing with the cell membrane in an acidic environment. "
I know from reading "Fit for Life" Diamond, that there are foods that do not combine, I do not combine fruit with veggies or carbs, carbs with nuts, fruits with nuts. Fruit is best eaten in the morning, veggies and carbs combine in the afternoon or in the evening as does protein. If I'm not particularly hungry, a handful of nuts is my main meal in the evening.
I no longer buy recipe books with animal sacrifices in them. "Do not make sacrifices of flesh and blood, for these are the Initiations of Satanaku."
