My Opinion on the Alkaline Diet // By a Dietitian

Video taken from the channel: Laura Oliver

The alkaline diet is based on the idea you can alter your pH by choosing to eat certain foods and avoiding those that produce more acid in the body. Ask the Dietitian: What is the Alkaline Diet and Should I Try It?The alkaline diet is also known as the acid-alkaline diet or alkaline ash diet. Its premise is that your diet can alter the pH value — the measurement of acidity or alkalinity — of your body.

Your. What You Need To Know About Your Alkaline Diet: An alkaline-promoting diet reduces the acidity in your body and can help guard against certain chronic diseases. Eating foods that are very acidic can lead to real health issues. Alkaline foods to eat include raw veggies like broccoli and cauliflower, raw fruits like lemon and watermelon, and oils like avocado and olive.

The alkaline diet, whose prescribed ratio is 80% alkaline-forming foods and 20% acid-forming foods, is said to reduce inflammation and increase resistance against disease. Bodily processes, say advocates, function at their best with this balance. Research shows that diets consisting of highly alkaline foods — fresh vegetables, fruits and unprocessed plant-based sources of protein, for example — result in a more alkaline urine pH level, which helps protect healthy cells and balance essential mineral levels.

Most fruits and vegetables, soybeans and tofu, and some nuts, seeds, and legumes are alkaline-promoting foods, so they’re fair game. Dairy, eggs, meat, most grains, and processed foods, like canned. Should I Try The Alkaline Diet? The alkaline diet is one in a string of evidence-based and non-evidence-based diet fads.

The idea is to replace acid-forming foods with alkaline foods to balance your body’s pH levels. Certain food components that can cause acidity in the body include refined sugars and processed grains. The alkaline diet is based on the theory that eating certain foods can change the body’s acid levels, also called the pH levels. Some believe that changing the body’s pH levels can improve your health and help you lose weight or even prevent cancer. But there’s no way the foods you eat can alter the pH level of your blood.

Once organic lesions, such as cancer or metabolic disorders, are ruled out, hypoacidity is best treated by a diet that tends to be acidic, including foods such as yogurt and citrus fruits, and by using acid, either by taking weak hydrochloric acid or, more preferably, by using acid bound to other nutrients.

  • Thanks for making this video! I cured my major depression disorder and my Add by going on a plant based vegan diet. I’ve been medication free for almost 2 years. It’s a huge blessing.

  • that doctor is an idiot drink tap water coffee like come on COME ON!!!! if u need a boost in your life eat your vegetables you sac of potatoes stop following, what ever you put in your buddy must benefit your whole body not your taste buds the trance you are all in is real people WAKE UP

  • This Weight Loss Green Store Tea product Tea product does suppress my appetite so I do not over eat. Most appetite suppressant supplements causes dehydration (causing cotton mouths), dizziness, rapid heart beat and mood swings but I have not experienced any of those symptoms. I feel like I have slimmed down based on the fitting of my clothes, the clothes fit a little looser. I’ve been taking these supplements for about 3 weeks and will continue to reach my goal. Also, I am waiting for a free bottle to be delivered which is great, I really appreciate that. Do not hesitate to try out this supplement, just give it a shot, you will see and feel results!

  • Youre getting there. Just needa look into doc sebi a lil. Leave the “nutrition” you were taught in school and look at it with a virgin mind. Leave your beliefs behind

  • I have incredible testimonials from people who started using alkaline ionized water that helped a lot in curing cancer. I highly recommend

  • The science is clear and explicit. From Wikipedia: “Proponents claim that consumption of alkaline water results in a variety of health benefits, making it similar to the alternative health practice of alkaline diets. Such claims violate basic principles of chemistry and physiology. There is no medical evidence for any health benefits of alkaline water.”

    One or two Quacks does not change that. Minor backyard “experiments” do not override basic biological fact. The burden of proof rest completely on those who are making these health claims, and they have not met their burden of proof. I don’t care what a few doctors or scientists say, I care exclusively what the consensus of the medical and scientific community says. The Pseudo scientific health claims like this are based on experience alone via the Confirmation Bias and the Placebo Effect, not science. That’s why these Kangan marketers only use interviews and ancient interviews with discredited “doctors”.

  • I read your blog post on bone broth too. Seven day test and your advising it’s a fad because you OD’d on bone broth for a week? What were you expecting miracles in 7 days? There are none. It’s about consistency over the long-term that you’ll reap the benefits incorporated into a healthy diet and lifestyle—not in one week. There are studies out there by credible universities that conducted experiments over the long-term proving the significant benefits over those who took a placebo. I don’t think your 7 day testing methods make you qualified to draw any sort of conclusion and very unhealthy. You could be doing a lot of people a disservice by your seven day extreme binging, And nowhere did any university experiment or article I’ve read said you only need one week and you’ll feel like a new person of you OD on the stuff.

  • I have incredible testimonials from people who started using alkaline ionized water that helped a lot in curing cancer. I highly recommend

  • Wow really appreciate this information…I’m aware of the this diet…this sheds a very interesting light on it for me…thank you!!

  • Sooo they’re not gonna give Dr.Sebi his credit and have all these caucasians like they are on to something? Where are the blacks because we make up a lot of community of vegans and people eating an alkaline diet?

  • It’s not about the ph in your blood or salive or what what what… it’s about staying away from acidosis… raw is alkaline. One week won’t make big difference. Lol

  • The hardest part about Alkaline Vegan is all the backlash you get from people who don’t have the free will to do their own research.

  • I have incredible testimonials from people who started using alkaline ionized water that helped a lot in curing cancer. I highly recommend

  • Am really grateful and thankful for what @dr_ayeye has done for me and my family. I Was having HERPES for good three years with no solution, the disease almost took my life and because I was unable to work and I was also loosing lots of money for medication,but one faithful day when I went online, I met lots of testimony about this great man so I decided to give it a try and to God be the glory he did it. he cured me of my disease and am so happy and so pleased to write about him today. if you need his help or you want way I got mine, just email him below: [email protected] or WhatsApp, +2347067379965 and get your healing. He has cure for other deadly disease like Diabetes Hiv/Aids, Hepatitis of all type of cancer

  • I think the main reason one feels low on energy is because when we start eating alkaline food we stop eating carbs. If we include health carbs in our diet then we do not feel low on energy.

  • Thank you for sharing. my wife and I have been trying to conceive for 3 years now but I highly believe it is because her vagina is way too acidic.

    her eating habits could possibly be the reason. Is there anything else we should note?
