An Explanation For The Reverse Side
This complete chart is the key to a rational, scientific diet. You need not study food chemistry or be
concerned about what you eat if you follow these instructions and the chart on the reverse side.
Science has divided foods, like chemicals, into two classes:
Alkaline-forming, or practically safe foods to eat, and
Acid-forming, the somewhat dangerous foods to eat.
Your Eating Habits and The ‘Eighty-Twenty’ Rule:
Do you eat over 80 per cent in alkaline foods, of mainly fruits and vegetables? If so, these foods, rich in
organic mineral salts and vitamins preserve the normal alkalinity of the blood, and you do not need to
think about diets. This is the all encompassing key to balancing food intake. Remember always to eat
plenty of health-promoting items, especially when you do eat acid-formers, such as meat, cheese, nuts,
grains, et cetera. Because these items are acid-forming is no reason to exclude them entirely—but use
them judiciously and in the correct balance, so that they yield the greatest good to your body.
Gland tone means perfect health. Glands feed mainly upon body secretions, and the healthy body must
have living mineral and alkaline elements in the main. Fruits should predominate at breakfast. For lunch,
fruit or vegetables with a possible alkaline dairy product. At dinner, vegetables, especially salads. Use
cereal products sparingly; proteins, fats, sweets, moderately. Have only wholegrain goods.
Fruits are not really laxative; they merely help produce digestive juices which promote good elimination,
while their high water content keeps the bowels moist and soft. really a normal condition. Protein, starch,
sugar and fats leave acid reactions. Thus an alkaline diet diminishes acidity of the urine by neutralizing
and absorbing normal body acids. It also forms a reserve of bicarbonates, which help to maintain
neutrality; you are aiding your body to overcome the bad effects of acid foods you do eat. The only other
food knowledge you need is harmonious combination, which is available in any modern health work.
The average person can be safe on an 80% alkaline to 20% acid proportion. Watch yourself. Plan your
meals to follow this valuable acid-alkaline chart, the most complete, simple and up-to-date in existence.
However, don't make a fetish of this regimen, but observe it in a rational manner. Even if you do eat an
all-acid meal, make your next two or three all-alkaline, and don't worry about it:
Please note that because a fruit is “acid” is no indication that its reaction is the same in the body, because
it really may be alkaline. Honey and raw sugars yield alkaline ash, but on account of the high concentrate
of sugar, become acid-formers. Rhubarb with raisins or dates is very good.
Good General Health is Much More Than What You Eat
Lastly, to maintain a perfect condition, observe general health rules. Rest and sleep are alkaline builders.
So to is exercise, fresh air, pleasure, laughter, conversation, enjoyment - even love.
Acidifiers are worry, fear, anger, gossip, hatred, envy, "crabbing", selfishness, and even silence - also
love-hunger. Here’s health to you, and a fulfilled life to enjoy it!!
Think it over:
Physically... we are what we eat.
Mentally... we are what we think.
Spiritually... we are what we believe.
