Acid Forming Foods

Foods that form acid are foods that are generally not really good for your health at all.

When you make a lifestyle habit of eating acid forming foods eventually you’re going to have symptoms of acidosis and there are quite a few of them too.

Alkaline forming foods are the foods that are generally good for you, mainly because your entire life process depends on you being slightly alkaline, or salty.

Acid forming foods demand that your body take on the task of neutralizing those acids and the only way it can do that is to activate an immune response, triggering inflammation and releasing calcium and magnesium from your bone and teeth.

Eating acid forming foods all the time can really tax your mineral and nutrients stores.

Once these acid forming foods have depleted most of your minerals, it will become almost impossible for your 60,000,000,000 cells to communicate electrically, plus this also inhibits your cells abilities to absorb vitamins.

Having a state of acid imbalance, or acidosis also decreases oxygen and invites anaerobic organisms (breathe carbon dioxide) to thrive.

Bacteria that cause ulcers as well as viruses and fungi can only survive and grow in an acid body.

You may think if you have too much acid in your body that taking antacids would help . . . actually they make it worse. Antacids, especially Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) are notorious for causing bones and teeth to thin, weaken and break.

You simply can’t fool Mama Nature . . . you always end up paying a hefty cost later on, one way or another.

Acid forming foods are things like high fructose corn syrup, white flour, hydrogenated (Trans fat) oils, animal protein, especially cow’s milk and other dairy products. In fact cow’s milk is 87% casein, a type of animal protein they make glue out of.

The animal protein is one of the worst culprits of acid forming types of food, that and sugar.

It is well documented that acid forming foods increase the risks of degenerative and inflammatory diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancers.

Alkaline forming foods are rich in ‘ionic’┬áminerals, which act as electrolytes conducting cellular signals, increasing oxygen and attracting vitamins into your cells.

Acid forming foods draw you nearer to death, whereas alkalizing foods help heal.

Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis

Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis (HGE) is a terrible disease that strikes dogs, usually younger and small bred dogs.

Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis can be deadly, but it is not contagious.

Medically speaking they don’t know what causes Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis. It seems to be related to a reaction to toxins produced by bacteria. Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis creates an increase in the permeability of the intestinal lining and a leakage of blood and proteins into the bowel.

The bacteria Clostridium perfringens is normally found in decaying plants, marine wastes and soils. In the United Kingdom and United States, C. perfringens bacteria are the third-most-common cause of food poisoning from processed meats, especially those found in dog food.

Generally Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis can be prevented by heating food at or above 165.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis takes hold within 6 to 24 hours of ingesting contaminated food.

The symptoms of HGE and parvovirus (CPV) are similar, except with HE there is no fever or low white blood cell count. It seems chronic dehydration is the most dangerous part of having Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis, that’s why replacing fluids and potassium intravenously and oral hydration is important.

If your dog has bloody vomit or diarrhea, even if it’s a tiny amount, get your pet to the vet ASAP.

It’s interesting to note that if the internal terrain of the dog is balance, recovery from eating fainted food will be fast. Bacteria can’t thrive in an environment or terrain that is well hydrated and maintains an alkaline pH because bacteria need an acid pH to live.

If you get treatment fast mortality rates drop to fewer than 20%, otherwise death is almost certain and about 15% of dogs will experience a relapse.

Whether the cause is bacteria or viral or even parasitic doesn’t change the fact that none of these harmful organisms that may be the cause of Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis can thrive in an alkaline pH environment . . . I use Japanese coral tea bags or Ionyte drops to treat my dog’s water. Alkaline water is higher in oxygen and minerals where as acidic water is the opposite.
