Most people consume an abundance of highly processed foods that acidify the body. As a result, they are afflicted with health problems ranging from minor skin irritations, chronic fatigue, back pain, and depression to arthritis, ulcers, and osteoporosis. To enjoy optimum health, the body needs balanced quantities of alkaline and acid substances. In The Acid–Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health, naturopath and detoxification expert Christopher Vasey shows how a simple change in diet to restore your acid–alkaline balance can result in vast improvements in health.

Vasey provides easy test methods to determine your acid levels and instructs how to interpret these test results. Rather than organizing alkaline and acid foods based on their chemical composition, he categorizes foods by their effect on the body, explaining that some foods, such as fruits, can have either an alkalizing or an acidifying effect, depending on who eats them. In this updated and expanded second edition, he provides the latest information on proper hydration and deacidification, important alkalizing supplements, and how to eliminate the body’s accumulated acids through intestinal cleansing. He also includes a new, detailed example of an alkaline detoxifying diet and explains how to design a diet best suited for your particular healthneeds.

Christopher Vasey, N.D., is a naturopath specializing in detoxification and rejuvenation. He is the author of The Water Prescription, The Whey Prescription, and The Detox Mono Diet. He lives near Montreux, Switzerland.

Valuable read to give you more information about how foods affect you and how you can achieve a balance. The author reiterate some things a bit much but I suppose it is to reinforce the point.

Interesting read, but at total odds with other books on the same subject. This leaves the information confused for me.
Desley on
 
This book explains the concept of acid/alkaline balance in your body very clearly, and has some great information, but since it was first published in 1999 further research has revealed that some of the foods he claims are acidifying are actually alkanising, and vice versa. Still worth buying but not reliable as a guide to what foods are alkanising when they are digested and metabolised.
