Bone disease can be different types of diseases that affect the human bones and make them weak and more susceptible to breaking. Some examples of these bone diseases include osteoporosis and osteomalacia that happen as a result of minerals deficiencies in the bones.
99% of the minerals in the body are stored in the bones that act as the reservoir for minerals. Our body uses these minerals to grow, develop, and stay healthy.
The fundamental principal behind the alkaline diet theory to treat bone diseases suggests that a normal alkaline blood pH can help in protecting the bones and preventing bone diseases (mainly osteoporosis and osteomalacia).
This is mainly because following an alkaline diet and “alkaline lifestyle” would maintain a healthy and normal alkaline blood pH level. This factor would help in treating and preventing bone diseases as it is believed to preserve the minerals ...
The alkaline diet is a regimen that helps the blood pH restore its alkalinity through consuming specific alkaline metabolite producing foods and alkalinizing elements. Plus, the alkaline diet promotes an “alkaline lifestyle” that requires changing the way we live and think, hence eliminating all negativity including stress and anxiety.
The foods included in the alkaline diet consist of a variety of fruits and vegetables, some nuts and seeds among others, which can ...
The alkaline diet suggests consuming 80% of the food we eat from alkaline forming food, and 20% from acidic forming food.
When the pH balance of the blood begins to improve and you reach the targeted level, the consumption of the alkaline forming food can be lowered to 65%, and the acidic forming food can be raised to 35%.
There is no specific time frame in which the alkaline diet should be followed ...
It is important to understand that the food impact on blood acidity or alkalinity is not related to the food type itself but it is related to the metabolic wastes or ashes that the food produces.
Therefore, if the food produces acidic metabolic wastes or ashes, it will influence the blood’s pH to become more acidic. The same mechanism happens with foods that are more alkaline ash or metabolic waste producing.
- Consume organic foods: focus on organic foods that are naturally grown, and free from pesticides and other chemicals. This is recommended because these chemicals can influence the blood pH and make it more acidic, even if you are consuming vegetables.
- Differentiate between “acid food” and “acid forming food”: it’s important to understand the difference between acidic foods and acid forming foods. For instance, while lemons are acidic foods, however when they are consumed, they promote ...
This diet also recommends removing major healthy sources of proteins that are considered acidic such as eggs, meat, fish, and walnut. These foods are major sources of omega 3 and omega 6 which should be a part of a healthy and balanced diet.
The decrease in consumption of these types of foods would lower satiety and might contribute to more hunger, brain fogginess associated with forgetfulness, mood changes, and risk of depression. This ...
The alkaline diet is of limited side effects because it is mainly focused on fruits and vegetables.
However, due to the high concentration of fibers, which contributes to more bulk and a decrease in transit time through the digestive tract, it might be best if avoided in cases of diarrhea, gastritis (inflammation of the stomach), acid reflux, and in some periods of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
