For the purposes of identifying the acid or alkaline potential of foods, we have divided the following list into three basic categories – alkalizing, slightly acidifying, and very acidifying. Even within a single category, not all foods are uniformly alkalizing, acidifying, or acid.
The classification used here presents foods in a three-column chart. Alkaline foods (vegetables) are divided into very alkalizing, acid but alkalizing, and slightly alkalizing. “Acid but alkalizing” foods are those which are acid by nature because they contain weak acids such as citric acid. However, these acids are easily exhausted in your body, converting to carbon dioxide and water during digestion.
They are rich in alkaline minerals, and thus have an alkalizing effect on the body.

Everything that happens to your body is a direct result of cells gone wrong because of years and years of abuse leading to intoxication by chemicals, pesticides, preservatives, and yes… those little critters called parasites… brought on by the foods we eat, and water we drink. But most importantly… because the excess acids in our system.
These toxins with time change the make-up of your cells where they can no longer resist adequately, and in time will eventually kill you of some awful disease be it cancer, heart failure, or something else!
It is my belief that for the body to be free of disease that a holistic approach needs to be taken. A change of diet and occasionally lifestyle is often the only way to have a true effect on a condition.
Psoriasis is only one of many skin conditions and diseases that will respond to this kind of treatment. To cover up the symptoms of an illness with drugs or chemicals is only a delaying tactic that will later backfire when the body rejects this treatment.
There are psoriasis home remedies available that often prove as or more effective than the medical treatments that swallow so much of our time and money.
