Alkaline Plant Based Diet: Reversing Disease and Saving the Planet with an Alkaline Plant Based Diet
An alkaline plant based diet is instrumental in supporting health and vitality, reversing disease, and protecting the earth's ecosystem. It optimally supports a slightly alkaline pH level in the blood, which is the equilibrium point for the health of all the organs in the body. Consuming acidifying meat, dairy, and processed foods causes the body to rely on buffering systems to keep the blood's pH around 7.4. The body then strips alkaline material from bones and tissues to put into the bloodstream when the buffering systems are overwhelmed. This compromises the health of organs and allows for the proliferation of pathogens and toxins.
The global assimilation of the Western diet, which is centered on the consumption of meat, dairy, and processed foods, supports industrial processes that compromise the natural life supporting patterns of the earth's ecosystem, and supports the proliferation of disease in the body and in the earth.
Diets centered on the consumption of meat, dairy, and processed foods are the catalyst of the inhumane treatment of animals, deforestation, land erosion, depletion of fresh water, and intensified climate change. The mechanisms employed to satisfy the demand for meat, dairy, and processed foods severely compromise the natural patterns that support all life on earth.
