A healing diet should contain an 80% alkaline to 20% acidic food balance, in each meal. A healthy body can generally be maintained (once healed) with a 60/40 balance. Aiming for somewhere in between (a 70/30 ratio) is optimal and more realistic, overall. When you eat any food, the body uses the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals contained in the food and eliminates the parts that are not usable. There is a part that is digested, but not used immediately - this is known as "ash". It is similar to the ash left after a log has been burned in your fire place. This ash can be acid or alkaline. The ash from fruits and vegetables is alkaline, although the food itself may have been acid. The alkaline minerals in ash can be stored in the alkaline reserve to buffer acids in the future.
