The Acid Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health by Christopher Vaseyis an informative book on the need to reduce acid pH in the bodyby eliminating junk food, highly processed foods and eating moreleafy green vegetables and beets. Vasey discusses the role of enzymesupplements, prebiotic and probiotic complexes, and antioxidants inneutralizing excess acids.The author explains that most consumers eat too many highly processedfoods that acidify the body. The result is a range of health problems likechronic fatigue, ulcers and greater sensitivity to arthritis and relateddiseases of the skeleton. Optimum health requires that the body have aproper balance of alkaline and acid substances. The problem is thatVasey doesn't support these statements with authoritative research findingsfrom places like The Lancet. Scientists know inferentially that the bodydecays and becomes more acidic after death occurs.Generally, a pH up to 6.9 is acidic. A pH of 7 is amphoteric and beyond 7is the alkaline state. Vasey defines the acid/alkaline measurement statisticsproperly with various urine tests to measure the pH. The problem is thatthe author needs to relate these measurements to authoritative medicaljournals either in the USA or overseas.Much of the book is dedicated to eliminating excess acid through diet,supplements and all natural remedies like reducing the overconsumptionof red meat. In addition, a sedentary life style with little exercise iscited as a contributor to excess acidity. The converse or rigorousexercise is associated with alkalinity which contributes to the desiredbody chemistry balance.
