Most of the foods we eat is acidic and mucus-producing, which manifests as obstructions in the many level of the body. These “obstructions” include overgrown bacteria, parasites, viruses, the waste from these organisms, inorganic mineral deposits and heavy metals, dead or decomposing cells, pus, and the excess acidic mucus which houses these toxins.
When we eat acidic food, we create the ideal conditions in our body for bacteria, parasites, viruses, and pathogens of all kinds to thrive in. These pathogens live in the mucous membrane that exists between our cells and bind to healthy cells from the outside. Once bound to a cell, these pathogens reprogram our immune systems to act in ways that harm our body and help the invader pathogens.
This is why the most important indicator of health is the alkalinity level of the body. By eating alkaline foods, we create conditions in our bodies that do not allow the growth of harmful microorganisms, and we allow the body to clean out the digestive system and the mucus membrane of accumulated toxins and pathogens. The cleansing properties of alkaline foods are especially powerful when it comes to our digestive systems, which house about 80% of our immune system. In addition, these foods are very easy for the body to process and digest, thus allowing the body to invest more of its resources into healing rather than wasting them on more digestively-demanding foods.
