Acid Vs. Alkaline Food - http://www.livestrong.com/article/113856-acid-vs.-alkaline/ - "A pH level below 7.0 is acidic, whereas a pH above 7.0 is alkaline...
According to Dr. Young, an acidic body may be why you have excess fat in your system. 'The body creates fat cells to carry acids away from your vital organs, so these acids literally don't choke your organs to death,' he says. Acids also attract yeast and fungus, which can interfere with your body's ability to effectively absorb nutrients." (Acid forming foods include coffee, sodas, processed & fried foods, alcohol, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners & animal proteins.  The soda ingredient that can remove rust is phosphoric acid; this can also leech out bone calcium.)

"Alkalinity/Acidity Of Foods- REMEMBER 9 is alkalizing down to 7, anything under 7 should be avoided...You can add an ionic calcium supplement (1,000 mg minimally) to your water. This will neutralize the acid in your water a bit but not entirely...The best unit I have found, which contains 32 years of medical science history is the Kangen Water unit. The unit is a Japanese medical device that is in every hospital in Japan and in 1 of every 4 households.

Baking soda - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_bicarbonate -

Medically, "sodium bicarbonate is used in an aqueous solution as an antacid taken orally to treat acid indigestion and heartburn.[8] It may also be used in an oral form to treat chronic forms of metabolic acidosis such as chronic renal failure and renal tubular acidosis. Sodium bicarbonate may also be useful in urinary alkalinization for the treatment of aspirin overdose and uric acid renal stones."

Baking soda - Arm & Hammer company suggestions for use as antacid - Add (level/not heaped) 1/2 teaspoon to glass of water; drink every 2 hours up to maximum dosage (or as physician directed).
Caution: Each 1/2 teaspoon contains almost 1/2 gram sodium (20.9 mEq/.47t gm)

Goji berry - "Dr. Victor A. Marcial-Vega is a Board-certified Oncologist; he trained at John Hopkins Hospital, is a Professor at the University of Miami and Washington Universities Schools of Medicine, & a Researcher and Consultant in Nutritional Medicine.
He says that every disease in the human body, whether it is high blood pressure, cancer (which is the disease he manages the most), diabetes, schizophrenia, stress, or any type of physical discomfort, turns the body acidic.
Acid in your body is like the acid on your car battery terminal. It corrodes. It disintegrates. Whenever your immune system is low or if your family history is plagued with heart disease, that may be where the acid in your body targets.
He observed that the common threat in 100% of his patients is that they are acidic when they aren’t healthy & they are alkaline when they are healthy.
In order to sustain health, our bodies have to be kept at a constant alkaline level. Your saliva alkaline test should read at a 7.4 pH. As an example, it is believed that cancer cells do not survive in the higher pH ranges. They die off...
Dr. Marcial-Vega found that the (pure) Himalayan Goji juice changed the body from being acidic to alkaline within 24 hrs.

He says that some people only need 2-4 ounces (1/4-1/2 cup) of the Goji juice a day to achieve alkalinity. Although, most of his Cancer patients needed 10-15 ounces a day."  http://www.balancedlifestylewithmary.com/acidic_alkaline.htm

Raw unrefined salt (such as gray Celtic sea salt containing 80 minerals/elements) can be a health benefit, whereas refined pure food-grade salt is not only a dead salt but also deadly (possibly containing cyanide, aluminum, ammonia, & dextrose).  May/June 2007 www.wellbeingjournal.com   [If you like a finer salt, you can buy unrefined salt in small grinders or perhaps grind your own in a small coffee bean grinder. (Do not use for use same grinder for  both coffee beans and salt!) With a small funnel, one can pour ground salt back into a salt shaker, etc.]
"In an acidic body, the pH is lowered, while in an alkaline body, the pH is elevated...When the pH of the body becomes either too acidic or too alkaline, normal physiologic functions decline.  The organs of the body (kidneys, liver, brain, etc.) do not function efficiently unless the pH of the body is neutral (7.2). Enzymes, the catalysts for the body, are very sensitive to pH changes.  They will lose most of their function when the pH is altered.  Immune system cells are unable to protect us when the pH is imbalanced....Refined foods (such as refined salt), devitalized of all the healthy vitamins, minerals, and enzymes are acidifying...Minerals are one of the most alkalinizing agents to the body...Mineral deficiency is often associated with a lowered pH (<7.0)...It is (often) impossible to overcome chronic illness when there is an acidic condition present.

Ume - http://www.kosmix.com/topic/umeboshi/Recipes - editorial - Varghese, Stanley -

"Umeboshi are dried fruit pickled extremely sour & salty. It is made from Prunus mume fruits common in Japan. Prunus mume also known as Ume is a species of Asian plum in the family Rosaceae. Ume is often called a plum but is actually more closely related to the apricot. The tree is cultivated for its fruit and flowers & the fruit is also called Japanese apricot or Chinese plum. The Ume tree flowers in late winter in January or February in East Asia. Each flower has 5 petals & has coloring ranging from white to rose & to deep red. The leaves appear as soon as the petals fall. The fruit ripens in early summer of June & coincides with the rainy season of China & Japan. Each fruit is round with a groove running from the stalk to the tip. The skin is green when unripe & turns yellow, sometimes with a red blush, as it ripens. The flesh becomes yellow.

Umeshu wine can be found on the liquor shelves with the plum wines.  It tastes like a mild after dinner liqueur.  Wine may contain plums added inside bottle.  One can add dry sparkling wine to your glass of umeshu wine.

ALTERNATIVE INSIGHTS

Becker, Robert O - The Body Electric - http://www.rahasyapoe.com "Higher frequencies will actually destroy certain diseases of lower frequency. A higher frequency also maintains a healthier pH in the body, which has also been shown to maintain a healthier state: Alkaline body fluids have the ability to absorb large amounts of “oxygen” capable of killing all forms of bad bacteria, fungus, viruses & parasites. Acidic body fluids with a pH of 6 or lower greatly restricts oxygen absorption. An oxygen poor body & cellular fluid helps to promote degenerative diseases & limits the ability of the body to heal itself).  So this raises an important point when we start considering what we ingest into our bodies. Raw foods, & specifically foods that are at the bottom of the food chain, such as blue-green algae...By living on a higher frequency level you are tuning in to higher vibrations. Remember, thoughts are energy, and energy is the same as mass, and mass constitutes the world we live in, so by changing your frequency, & since thoughts have frequency, you are changing your world."  (Better still is for us to line up with the mind of Jesus as revealed in the Holy Bible & thus align our self with His superior frequency.)

Eating too many foods (meat, cheese, coffee, wine, processed food) that trigger excess digestive hydrochloric acid, stress or lack of exercise contribute to acid blood & disease, but most fruit (berries/plums/prunes) & root vegetables are alkaline [and thus do not trigger stomach acid (HCL)] per vol 7 #11 The Doctors' Prescription for Healthy Living www.freedompressonline.com Chlorophyll supplements, RAW fruits and vegetables + carrot juices contribute to a normal alkaline pH level per winter 2004 Hallelujah Acres magazine. www.hacres.com

"
I also recommend the old Master Cleanser (see Master Cleanser or Healing for the Age of Enlightenment by Stanley Burroughs). You take a full gallon pitcher. Fill it with the best water that you can find. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice in there, and then add Grade B maple syrup because it still has many of the nutrients which have been refined out of Grade A. If you want to add a little apple cider vinegar as well, this raises the pH, along with the lemon juice. We will talk more about pH in Step 2. If you want to add things like a little bit of garlic it wouldn't hurt. This is the old Master Cleanser. Now you spoil this delicious lemonade by mixing in a couple of heaping tablespoons of the hottest cayenne pepper that you can find. Stuff that just looking at it makes your eyes water. You are raising the body temperature with this, because cayenne pepper not only has the highest pH, but it also raises the body's temperature extremely well. It flushes your face, I mean, you are hot.  Those fungi don't like that very much. Just as different seaweeds don't grow in certain areas because they need a certain terrain in which to grow, it is the same thing with bacteria, viruses, fungi & cancer cells. They require an acidic terrain. So if you want to raise your body pH, raise your body alkalinity, reduce your acidity."  (One can drink it cold in the summer & hot like tea in the winter.)
#2 DE-ACIDIFICATION -
"
The lifestyle risks that cause your body to turn acidic are acid-forming foods, caffeine consumption, nicotine, sugar, stress, alcohol & drugs. Virtually all pharmaceutical drugs, cause acidity. When the body chemistry becomes acidic, it creates a breeding ground for fungi, bacteria, viruses & cancer cells. Cancers grow at an acidic pH environment of about 4.5. So you want to get rid of that environment so those things can't grow in your system. Detoxification & the Master Cleanser are an excellent inexpensive way to begin. Your body chemistry should be ideally somewhere in the (PH) range of like 7.5 to 7.6.
The water that you drink at home, typically, is going to be in the neighborhood of around 7.0. Check your water. If it has a pH of 7, you have to raise that pH. If you are not drinking water with a pH of at least 8, you are not doing this program properly. How do you get a water pH of 8? Well, the simplest thing to do is squeeze some fresh
lemon or lime juice into it. Most people think that doesn't make sense because it is an acid fruit which would make you more acidic. But that does not occur because lemon & lime have a lot of calcium, which converts to calcium hydroxide in the body & that raises your body pH (increases the alkalinity). So the easiest, least expensive thing to do is buy a basket-full of lemons or limes & squeeze that into your (drinking) water. There is also a product called "Alkalife" which costs about $20 U.S. for a 2-month supply. Two drops in an 8-ounce glass of water will raise it to a pH of about 8. There are machines that you can buy that create alkaline water. The best that I am aware of is called 'The Water Doctor'. A lot of people are recommending drinking watermelon juice, watermelon fasts, millet, & millet flour because they raise your body's pH.
You should be drinking half of your body weight, converted to ounces, of water per day. So that if you weighed, let's say 200 pounds, you should be drinking at least 100 ounces of water. That is ten 10-ounce glasses, or twelve 8-ounce glasses of water per day, at least. That is a lot of water. You have to understand that your body is composed of well over 70% water, & well over 80-90 % water in your brain. You have to replenish that stuff. What are you going to drink? These soft drinks are absolutely poisonous to the body chemistry, especially when they contain aspartame. And if you drink an 8-ounce glass of a drink which contains phosphoric acid, it will take you probably 8-10 times that at least, to cleanse out the garbage from your system and try to re-balance the body chemistry. When you drink this brown stuff containing caffeine, it goes in brown, & it comes out white or yellow. Did you ever wonder what happened to the brown? It adds a toxic effect on the kidneys. The kidneys have to pull out all that brown garbage. The liver has to work with it & alter it. It is a burden on the primary detoxification systems, the creation of urine, & the liver, & as well, it comes out the skin. The skin is a primary detox structure as well."

short acid tutorial - http://www.intowine.com/acid-wine-tutorial - "A quick note on pH in wines before we begin adjusting the must. In wine, we typically see a pH of between 3 – 4. For each wine there are multiple styles that can be made, but as a standard whites have a higher acidity and thus a lower pH – closer to 3.0. Red wines have a higher pH and thus a lower acidity – closer to 4.0 (although typically closer to 3.5). The closer a wine’s pH is to 4, the less stable the wine will be in the long run. The closer a wine’s pH is to 3, the more stable it can be, but this is not a certificate to add acid to protect he wine from microbial problems. What we are attempting to achieve is balance."

Young, Robert O & Shelley  The PH Miracle - Balance Your Diet. Reclaim Your Health.  Chapter 6 Food Combining recommends that each meal consist of MOSTLY low-sugar/high water vegetables/fruits (70%) + a MINIMUM of protein (5% animal or 7% vegetable), natural oils (20-30%), and sugar (0.5-3%), using a 3 to 1 basis = 3 vegetables + 1 protein (or complex carbohydrate).  Protein digestion takes place in the stomach & requires acidity, whereas starch/vegetable/fat digestion takes place in small intestine and requires mild alkalinity. Before, between & after (not during) meals indulge in water which has been alkalized with such as a fresh lemon/lime [not green powders with algae, mushrooms or probiotics (fermentable bacteria)].  Authors contend that poor/improper food combinations contribute to an excess of sticky mucus/phelm.  Authors also urge one to have 1 raw/live organic food with each meal.  Choose vegetables over fruit. 
"Acids block the action of ptyalin, a component of saliva...necessary for...starch digestion. (The result is that) Starches...layer (vegetable) sugar on top of (fruit) sugar and (stomach) acid...The combination (of eating an excess of processed starch with an excess of animal proteins) creates enough poisons that it can actually shut down the immune system for 5 hours...(A garnish of natural/healthy) oil (such as olive oil salad dressing) slows digestion of starch." http://www.phmiracleliving.com/t-about.aspx

As quoted in the booklet Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions? by Randy Alcorn, a representative of the Ortho-McNeil pharmaceutical company said, 'If you end up with a fertilized egg [new human being], it [the baby boy or girl] won’t implant and grow because of the less hospitable endometrium.' 1 'It seems unlikely that implantation would be possible in the altered endometrium developed under the influence of most of the suppressants [of ovulation].'" 3

Ferrell, Emerson - 9/2010 ministry newsletter - Immersed in Him - www.voiceofthelight.com  "Laughing or singing can break connections formed in our neuro nets...Our brains are the greatest pharmaceutical factories on the planet... Neurologists have identified a peptide called enkephalins... known to act as a bonding agent in opiates...The body's cells are designed to regenerate most effectively when the chemicals or amino acids are alkaline...Sadness, anger, rage, jealousy, and depression produce acidic chemicals...Consuming pharmaceutical drugs weakens & eventually destroys the body's immune system.  Over time the body loses its ability to produce proper chemicals to protect its organs...We can become addicted to the chemicals our body creates...People who view themselves as victims will (may)...eventually attract a real life situation, in order to produce the amino acid (brain chemical which would help fix fear)...The more convinces we are of the reality from our emotions, the more addicted we (may) become to the feelings from our mind's pharmaceutical factory.  Thus, our bodies become the center for decisions instead of our mind.  The mind is the 'drug dealer' supplying the chemicals and memories to support our addictions...appetites."

Mentions that yoga and reiki practices were stolen by Satan and misappropriated/misused, but can be repurposed for God.  (Caution with some of body positions, which are evil positions of sign language of summoning demons.)
