Alkaline is the English synonym for basic, since Bronsted Lowry acid – base theory of 1923 the term alkali in chemistry was restricted to those salts containing alkali earth metal elements especially for soluble bases. Alkalis are known to have pH (potential of hydrogen) greater than 7 that dissolve in water such as bicarbonate. The pH is a measurement of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution: the lower the pH the more acidic the solution, the higher the pH the more alkaline. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 0 thur 6.9 being acidic,7 being neutral, and 7.1 through 14 alkaline. For example stomach juice has a pH of 1.5, wine 3.5, garlic 3.9, beer 4.4, cow’s milk 6.5, distilled water 7, blood 7.4, pancreatic juice 8.8, soap 9.1, and baking soda added to water 12.
All chemical processes have an ideal pH at which they are most efficient. For example the body functions best with an internal chemistry being alkaline. When this balance is compromised many problems can occur. Our cells die at pH 3.5. The blood is even more specific: if blood is at pH 7.4, it is normal, but if it’s just below pH 7.2 that creates serious illness or death.
Our bodies produce lactic acid and carbon dioxide through movement. Since our bodies do not manufacture alkalinity, we must supply the alkalinity from an outside source to keep our bodies alkaline. Ideally there is adequate amount of alkalinity in the diet to do this. However, if there is not, the body must extract alkaline from the organs, tissue, and bones to neutralize the acid. This causes the body to become acidic, and thus diseased.
Dr. A. Szent-Gyorgy stated, “The body is alkaline by design but acidic by function”. Every living cell within our body creates metabolized waste which is acid. The nutrients from our food are delivered to each cell and they burn with oxygen to provide energy for us to live. The burned nutrients are called metabolized waste. Whether you eat the best of foods or the worst, all foods generate metabolized waste. Foods are classified as alkaline or acid, based on the oxidized remains of our food and the amount and quality of the waste products it produces. Alkaline food produces very little waste and acidic foods produces large amounts of waste, the more acid the more metabolic waste. Most of our cells go through metabolism and these old dead cells also become waste products.
Our body will discharge this waste through urine, bile, and perspiration. The problem is that our body can’t get rid of 100% of the waste it produces which causes an over load of toxicity. With out proper elimination of these acid waste these waste products become solid wastes, such as, micro toxins, toxins, fungus, bacteria, mucus etc. and, unknown to us they accumulate and build up in our blood, organs, and tissue. This accumulation of non-disposed waste product of cellular disorganization and metabolized acid waste within our body accelerates the depletion of minerals and other nutrient, causes disease, and stimulates the aging process. Eating and drinking alkaline foods and water helps our bodies to remove and neutralize acid wastes and make it easier for the body to dispose of them. The reduction of acid wastes retards the aging process maybe even reversing it. Alkaline foods and water consumed regularly reduces the metabolic acid wasted build up, allowing a natural and healthy environment. Meats, dairy products, sugar and starches are enemies of the human body. Meat produce uric acids, dairy produces lactic acids, and starches produce carbonic acids. As well, It is vitally important that we distinguish the difference between food and synthetics. Most of corporate plant foods are either hybrids or genetically modified, therefore deeming them un-natural and acidic. These hybrids white and brown rice, white red and orange carrots, corn, potatoes, garlic, beans, soy, wheat, wheat grass, barley, and yams, to name a few are high in starch and un-natural sugars, making them enemies of the body.
Just remember: All man made foods is un-natural and acidic. As Dr.Sebi states, “If God didn’t make it, don’t take it.”
Below are foods that belong in your home and in your daily lifestyle. These foods are perfect ingredients for the recipes for you to experiment with your own meals. 99% of the food available to us today are hybrids, high in starch and sugar and carry traces of cyanide poison. 50% of these hybrids are more detrimental than others, see the acid/alkaline chart for a complete nutritional guide of the foods that are less harmful and detrimental to the body.

WE ARE NOT MEDICAL DOCTORS: therefore, we do not diagnose illness or prescribe pharmaceuticals. We are nutritional consultants and make suggestions relating to nutrition. None of the information offered here is intended to replace any program that your medical doctor has prescribed for you, nor does it conflict with any pharmaceutical medication you are taking. It is recommended that you take your products at least one hour prior to taking your medication so that the minerals offered can be fully assimilated.
The State of New York Supreme Court classified our products as “natural vegetation cell food” in 1988. As a result, when you take them you will have fed your cells and will not have much of an appetite.
About Our Therapeutic Compounds
Our African Bio-Mineral Therapy Program examines and identifies the causes, not merely the symptoms, of disease. Further, we find that the cause of disease is mucus. Disease will manifest in the body where mucus has accumulated. Although the natural vegetation cell food compounds were designed to extract mucus from a given area of the body, it is also necessary for the body to be cleansed as a whole. What makes our compounds unique is the manner in which they work to cleanse and nourish the entire body.
Through this approach, we have been successful in reversing pathologies. Since the herbs used have a natural origin, the compounds are still releasing their cleansing properties 14 days after they are initially taken.
An equally important aspect of our African Bio-Mineral Therapy Program is adhering to the nutritional guidelines provided in the following pages. Our herbal compounds working in conjunction with nutritional changes will give the body the proper environment to achieve optimal health. Also, please note, if a food is not listed in these pages, it is strongly recommended that you do not eat it.
Additionally, we find that drinking a gallon of natural spring water daily helps to produce the most beneficial results for our African Bio-Mineral Therapy Program.
