The majority of the foods in our diets today are high in acidity. This added acidity is very taxing on our bodies over time, and forces the body to work harder to keep everything working properly. Fat and toxins get hastily stored, fungus and detrimental bacteria thrive, and if long-term acidosis sets in further health problems can begin to develop. In recent fact, acidosis is the common condition linked to almost all major diseases, especially those associated with degeneration. You are acidic when fluids/systems in your body (never your blood; your body sacrifices anything to keep your blood to a tight pH.) start to fall below 7 on the pH scale. The human body is designed to operate in a slightly alkaline state or 7.2~7.4. The common denominator between almost all major ailments and disease is a host living within an internal chemistry ph of under 7. The human body was designed to operate in an alkaline state, and alkalinity is the key to long lasting good health! Alkaline forming foods are typically
Detriments of being Acidic:
- General inflammation and joint pain
- Body stores Fats and Toxins
- Causes fatigue and low energy levels
- Mental Fog
- Weakens the immunity of our bodies
- Leads to growth of unhealthy bacteria, yeasts, fungi
- Contributes to formation of all major diseases (Cancer, Heart Disease, Alzheimers, Osteoporosis to name a few)

- High energy levels
- No mental Fog
- Increased metabolism, achieve optimal weight
- Significantly lowers chance of developing diseases/ detrimental conditions.

What Is The Acid-Alkaline Diet?
The alkaline diet has its roots (no pun intended) in microbiology, plant based nutrition, sports science and longevity studies. It is based on a diet abundant in nutritionally dense foods containing alkaline salts, green foods, whole grains, clean protein and omega oils.
We also focus on cutting out “acid foods“, which are the ones you already know are bad for you – cola, chips, chocolate, sweets, burgers, dairy, etc.. We advocate the consumption of clean alkaline water, efficient exercise and relaxation techniques. Together these all help to boost health, energy and wellbeing.
The results we have experienced since 2004 are now fully proven by the independent Food Standards Authority. The benefits of the alkaline diet have now been independently assessed by a team of scientists giving you the certainty that this lifestyle works!
To become alkaline you simply need to start focusing 70-80% of your diet on the alkaline foods and try to limit the acid foods. Back this up with 3-4 litres of good quality, clean, alkaline water each day and you will soon start to feel fantastic!
