I wanted to respond to John's post about Proton Pump Inhibitors. I had been taking Prilosac for about 3 years before becoming sick with Morgellons. I decided to stop taking it when I began the Protocol as I did not want anything to interfere with it. Honestly, I now feel it was creating a negative situation for me as to my digestion. Now I am completely convinced that diet and consuming alkaline foods has totally corrected all my prior digestive issues! Great info, John.
WISE MOVE to look for alternatives to proton pump inhibitors! Not only have they been blamed by some for our skyrocketing rates of esophageal cancer, but the FDA has issued a warning about their link to increased bone fracture risk.
Much of our protocol is aimed at restoring normal gut physiology, so I look forward to hearing your feedback as your recovery progresses.
Thanks for such a concise list - I am beginning research on this as I have illnesses related to high acidic conditions in my stomach/GI tract, including Barrett's and precancerous cellular changes. The meds they give me are all anti acid, so why not try an anti-acid diet first????
So, it makes sense to me to try and balance this out with alkaline based.
Thanks for such great information.
Thanks, for explaining in a simple way
It is confusing because there are a lot of conflicting views out there. I like to keep things simple. Embrace the foods that God put here for our health and enjoyment and reject man's wisdom that generally comes prepackaged.
Dr. Weed's suggestions below are pretty solid. I would also refer you to our Important Articles page, where you will not only find great information on balancing your pH, but many other issues that may be affecting your health.
Many thanks to John Burgstiner for sharing with us some of the articles from the treasury of life changing information that has been compiled on the Logos Nutritionals website.
We will be continuously adding to the articles page as new or helpful information is encountered. Feel free to share articles with me that you feel would benefit those who are led here.
Thanks again Renee... hope this helps a little.
God Bless, Never Give up Hope!
So ....then what foods are we supposed to be
eating? Cause now I'm confused. I know everyone is different but just give us your ideal list, just need some sort of idea to go off of. Thank You.
Thanks Pamela. I had used the word Food when I searched last night. The word Diet is giving me more info. You have a valuable website here.

There are 4 pages, with lots of options on diet if you type diet in the search engine feature.
Hope this helps - God Bless and get better,
Am still looking for a good balanced diet between acid and alkaline. Just found this list on your forum. Am puzzled as to the balance of these foods. Seems one couldn't get a very good diet eating mostly the foods on the alkaline list. Too many fruits. Too much fruit and fructose which the itchy critters seem to like. Where do we get our protein? Soy products are highly processed and about 99% of soy is GMO. There are other contradicting lists on the internet that have big differences from this one. Is there some official list somewhere?
Should we only stay on Alkaline Diet or are foods such as Cranberries even though acidic, good as well?
After reading John B's post on Acid vs Alkaline Ph balance in our systems I started becoming curious about which foods were Acid and which were Alkaline.
Hope this following article and list helps everyone a bit.
God bless you Richly with his perfect love,
Acid Alkaline Imbalance:
Over acidity, which can become a dangerous condition that weakens all body systems, is very common today. It gives rise to an internal environment conducive to disease, as opposed to a pH balanced environment which allows normal body function necessary for the body to resist disease. A healthy body maintains adequate alkaline reserves to meet emergency demands. When excess acids must be neutralized our alkaline reserves are depleted leaving the body in a weakened condition. A pH balanced diet, according to many experts, is a vital key to health maintenance.

Note that a food's acid or alkaline-forming tendency in the body has nothing to do with the actual pH of the food itself. For example, lemons are very acidic, however the end-products they produce after digestion and assimilation are very alkaline so lemons are alkaline-forming in the body. Likewise, meat will test alkaline before digestion but it leaves very acidic residue in the body so, like nearly all animal products, meat is very acid-forming.
