Foods with Neutralizing Ash but Acidifying Effect

Neutralizing Ash with Acidifying Effect

  • Refined Sugar   Olive Oil   Corn Syrup   Corn Syrup

White sugar, fats, oils, syrups, as well as some other processed and synthetic foods, leave no ash after being metabolized.  However, the body does have to work and fast to metabolize them, producing a surge of energy after eating them.  With this energy also comes a lot of acid.  Therefore these foods, while leaving no ash have an acidifying effect.

The body must neutralize the acids from acid foods.  If not enough alkaline ash foods are eaten to do this, the body will draw on its alkaline reserve.  This alkaline reserve is made up of the minerals sodium, potassium and calcium primarily, with iron and magnesium as secondary sources.  These reserves are stored in the liver, muscle and bone and are called upon when required to release their stores.  Over time these reserves can become severely depleted causing liver problems, gallstones, flabby muscles and osteoporosis.

Unfortunately, very few people eat the kind of diet that would maintain the alkaline reserve.  A diet consisting of about 75% fruits and vegetables would be ideal to neutralize the remaining 25% of the diet containing acid ash foods.  In reality surveys show that on any day 40% of the population eat no fruits and 20% eat no vegetables at all.

“What the Bible says about Healthy Living” by Rex Russell, M.D.

Follow me as I blog about “What the Bible says about Healthy Living” by  Rex Russell, M.D.

“Well, my first blog. I feel so hip now…is that the word or is it “bad” which really means “good”?!

Anyway…Its great to be able to express myself freely to other people around the world.  I teach classes about keeping our bodies healthy, and I am a certified Biblical health coach. ..BUT I really didn’t look into what God says about what I should be eating and apply that knowledge to my own life,   so why haven’t I???   I don’t know, I guess I thought I could do it on my own and I have found out that I can’t.  Well, now I am on a quest for getting healthy and eating better.  I want to know what God says about what we should eat…after all…He should know because I believe He created us. I hope you will follow me on this journey to health and wellness…God’s way!

I have lost over 20 pounds since last year, and I have learned a lot of things and I feel much better than I did, but I still have weight to lose and  my cholesterol is still too high and I want more energy.  I often wonder, What should I be eating to help my body to “heal itself”?   So,my husband bought me this book called, “What the Bible says about healthy living” by Rex Russell, M.D.

In Chapter one Dr. Russell talks about how cleanliness in hospitals in Vienna in the mid 1800′s dropped the death rate from 1 in 84 instead of 1 in 6 just by Dr. Ignaz Semmelweiss, a doctor there, had staff members wash their hands in a bowl of water before examing patients.

He goes on to say that “Diseases fill our daily lives–everything from the common cold to cancer and high blood pressure.  Yet the early pages of Genesis tell of a perfect world designed by a benevolent Designer.  What happened?”

I need to stop and look up benevolent—


1. Characterized by or expressing goodwill or kindly feelings: a benevolent attitude; her benevolent smile.

2. Desiring to help others; charitable: gifts from several benevolent alumni.

3. Intended for benefits rather than profit: a benevolent institution.

So it seems that everything God does is for our good.  After Genesis 3, mankind fell and the earth fell with us , producing all sorts of harmful influences that were not in God’s original, grand design.  But God immediately set about instituting His plan for redemption—giving us Salvation and ways to live—morally, spiritually and in good health.

Everything that God created is for a purpose and if we follow God’s plan, we can live long, healthy lives.

What is Old Testament Law to a Christian?  I always wanted to know that.  Why shouldn’t we eat pork and other animals?  what is the difference anyway?  Old Testament Laws have no effect on our Salvation, because it is “by Grace that we are saved”…but it shouldn’t be thrown by the wayside because the laws about “clean” and “unclean” animals still applies.  Enough for tonight…Iwill finish chapter 1 tomorrow.
