NO Disease Can Exist in An Alkaline Environment

otto warburg

Giving away a book and alkaline tester at bottom of post!

Dr. Otto Warburg the 1931 Nobel Prize winner for cancer discovery, stated “NO disease, including cancer, can exist in an alkaline environment.” So, if this is true, I asked MYSELF, am I alkaline or acid? That was my question! I eat healthy foods. So, I bought an alkaline strip test kit, to find out.

I was shocked to find that Dale and myself were ACID!

I started to research  what we needed to do, to create an environment in which diseased cells, viruses, bacteria and fungi are UNABLE to thrive.

We all need a pH level of around 7.4 on the scale from 1 to 14, with 1 being acidic and 14 being alkaline. At this level, we’re able to function more effectively and fight off potential chronic diseases.

Ordered on Amazon and was at my door in two days

pH Alkaline Test Kits: Order online or get from your local health food store.

You can test your pH with your saliva or urine. The urine provides a more accurate reading, especially the “first morning urine test.”

Urine pH Zone: 4.5-6.0
•Health Condition: severe acidosis zone
Degenerative chronic diseases thrive in this zone

Urine pH Zone: 6.0-6.5
•Health Condition: moderate acidosis zone
•You have risk of contracting degenerative chronic diseases

Urine pH Zone: 6.5-7.5
•Health Condition: optimal healthy zone
•Optimum of a healthy person

Urine pH Zone: 7.5-9.0
•Health Condition: unhealthy alkalosis zone
This is just as serious at highly acid. Not healthy!

When our pH levels are consistently below 7.4, our system becomes acidic (Acidosis) and forces our body to extract essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium from vital organs, bones and teeth in order to neutralize the effect of the Acidosis.

Acidosis weakens our body systems and creates the perfect recipe for chronic diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, premature aging. . .Add stress and lack of exercise in there and its havoc to our body.

I found Alkaline forming charts that show what foods are alkaline and which are acid forming. It’s slightly confusing because every chart you find is a little different.

I printed a couple different charts, made a grocery list of alkaline items and headed to the store.

My plan was for us to eat  75% alkaline forming foods and 25% acid forming for 40 days.

I stopped drinking my beloved, coffee and  started drinking green tea(matcha) lattes in the morning (made with raw goat milk and raw honey).

I read somewhere that the average person can become alkaline in 3 weeks. Proudly, I boasted  to myself, we’ll conquer this in a week. It didn’t happen!  So, I took out the 25% acid forming foods for a week. We became alkaline. After that, we continued the 75%/25%  vow to health. When the 40 days were over we felt GREAT!

We’re INTENSELY  busy! I’ve traveled to 6 speaking events in 10 weeks and had a wedding on our farm EVERY weekend. Do I have time to eat like this?? You betcha! I’ve got more energy and no pain, living  alkaline!

Here’s a sampling of what we’ve been eating:  (I use all organic ingredients) :

Alkaline Pumpkin Muffins are great milk boosters for lactating moms!

Organic Alkaline Pumpkin Muffins                    Makes a dozen

2 1/4 cups old fashioned oats (rolled)

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons Sucanat

1/4 cup molasses

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

4 tablespoons clarified butter (melted)

1/4 cup raw milk or coconut milk

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Optional-Toasted pumpkins seeds on top

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Grease or line 12 muffin pans
  3. Mix all ingredients
  4. Fill muffin pans 3/4 full
  5. Bake 20 mins, or until done
  6. Cool

Now that we are alkaline, I add walnuts to this recipe. Walnuts are acid forming. They’re a healthy nut as long as you’re not acid.

IMG_4076 (1)

Pumpkin muffins with toasted pumpkin seeds baked on top! These were from pumpkins we kept in storage over winter. Two cups of pumpkin come out of a small pie pumpkin.

I usually double the batch and freeze one. These are excellent  to take on trips for snacks or breakfast! I’ve used banana  or butternut squash in exchange for pumpkin.

Almond Butter Balls

Almond Butter Balls                Makes a dozen

1/2 cup chopped dates

1/2 cup chopped raisons

1 cup chopped roasted *chestnuts

1/4 cup molasses

1 cup almond butter

1 to 2 tablespoons orange juice (I use fresh)

1/2 cup shredded coconut

*Chopped walnuts taste MUCH better than chestnuts in this recipe, however, walnuts are acid forming. Once you’re alkaline it’s ok to use walnuts instead of chestnuts. When you’re working hard to get alkaline use chestnuts. Order organic roasted chestnuts through Amazon, they’ll be at your door in two days!

  1. Using a wet knife or scissors cut dates and raisons into small pieces
  2. Chop walnuts
  3. Mix everything EXCEPT COCONUT together
  4. Roll into balls, then roll balls into coconut to coat
  5. Store in airtight container. Flavor is enhanced after a day. Store in refrigerator

After 10 days on a alkaline diet Dale nor myself could reach above  5.5  until the day we had this soup! Yeah. Throw the highest alkaline foods into one pot, cook and eat it. We hit 7 by the next morning!

Alkaline Soup with almond flour bread and an alkaline salad

Alkaline Soup with almond flour bread and an alkaline salad

Alkaline Soup  This will boost you into alkalinity!

1 cup dry lentils ( I use sprouted lentils- you don’t have to)

1 extra large sweet potato or 2 medium (peeled and diced)

4 large collard green or kale leaves (chopped &center vein removed)

2 carrots- diced

1 red bell pepper- diced

4 cloves of garlic- minced

1 onion- diced

2 cups vegetable stock or mineral water

2 tbsp coconut oil or clarified butter (depends on your taste preference)

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 avocado

2 tbsp chopped dill

1 handful of cashews (roughly chopped)

Add all ingredients except for avocado, dill and cashews into a pot. Cook for 40 minutes on medium until done. Take off stove and puree in a blender. Add sliced avocado, dill and cashews to top.

You don’t have to puree the soup. It’s good not pureed as well and you won’t have to wash the blender. If you’re making it for someone who is ill or has a sluggish digestive system pureeing it helps reduce the work load on the digestive tract.

Serve with fresh sliced pear or apple.

Now that we are alkaline, I’ve been using bone broth instead of vegetable stock.

Butternut Squash and Brussel Sprouts with salad and Japonica Rice

Butternut Squash and Brussel Sprouts with salad and Japonica Rice

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Butternut Squash and Pomegranate Seeds

1 large butternut squash

2 pounds Brussel sprouts

2 large red onions, quartered

1/2 cup clarified butter or olive oil

1 tsp sea salt

1 cup pomegranate seeds

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Put whole Butternut squash in oven and bake for 20 mins. Take out of oven and peel and de-seed squash, then chop into bite size pieces.
  3. Trim bottoms of Brussel sprouts, cut in half if you want or leave whole.
  4. Quarter onions
  5. In large bowl add squash, Brussel sprouts and onion. Drizzle oil over vegetables and stir.
  6. Pour onto a large baking dish. If you don’t have a large one, pour on two baking sheets. You want breathing room around the vegetables so they are roasted on all sides. If you dump them in and there’s no room it won’t taste roasted.
  7. Roast for 35 mins on 400 or until browned and cooked through. Add the pomegranate seeds when out of oven, stir and serve! YUM!
  8. Add chopped spinach, kale or collard greens for extra alkalinity before you bake it.
  9. I served this with Japonica Rice (its alkaline!), salad and a small piece of baked chicken.
Oatmeal

Oatmeal Porridge with fruit and raw goat milk (raw goat milk is slightly alkaline, pasteurized is acid. Raw cow milk is slightly acid forming)

Oatmeal Porridge

1 1/2 cups rolled oatmeal

3 cups water

3 tablespoons clarified butter (not alkaline or acid- neutral)

1 tablespoon molasses

Optional: raw goat milk

In pot add oats, water, butter and molasses. Cook on medium until water is mostly absorbed and oatmeal is creamy.

Iron Skillet Tenderloin Smothered in Onions and Peppers

Iron Skillet Tenderloin Smothered in Onions and Peppers served over mashed potatoes with asparagus

Iron Skillet Tenderloin Smothered in Onions and Peppers

1 grass fed tenderloin (I used venison- it’s less acid) sliced thin

1 green or red pepper- sliced in strips

1 onion- sliced in strips

4 tablespoons clarified butter

Optional: All seasons salt

Sautee onions and peppers separately. Add to a bowl to wait. Last sauté tenderloin pieces for 3-4 mins. Then add onions and peppers to the tenderloin.

Serve on top of homemade mashed potatoes. YES! Potatoes are ALKALINE! Make your mashed potatoes with clarified butter and a little milk (raw goat milk is alkaline).  Remember it’s ok to have had 30 percent of your meal acid forming from good food. If you cant get raw milk, organic grass fed pasteurized milk can be your acid forming ingredient in the potatoes.

Serve with a LARGE alkaline forming salad! YUM! Drink purified water with lemon.

Soaked for 6 hours and baked on 200 for 12 hours- YUM

Soaked for 6 hours and baked on 200 for 12 hours- YUM

Soaked and Slow Basked Raw Cashews– Do not eat RAW without soaking and baking. Your digestive system will be suffering if you eat them raw. Cashews are alkaline, high in protein, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.

Soak RAW cashews in purified salt water for 6 hours. No more, no less. They get slimy if you let them sit longer. Drain. Pour into large pan to slow roast. Salt to taste.  Bake on 200 degrees for 12-24 hours.

    Have you heard of Kangen Water? It is an alkaline water and my husbands cousin sells it. It changes the PH of your water on your faucet. I had always loved pop and with the water, I lost 18 pounds from the water. If interested please email me.

    • chandra says:

      this is very eye opening. thanks for sharing. please email me the alkaline food guide . I would love to try it.

    • Hi, Jeanie! I have do know about the Kangen Water! Amazing! Thank you for mentioning it! You lost 18 pounds?! WOW

  2. Pamela says:

    I am being tasked with making changes like this. The nice part is, the recipes you have shared look delicious! (I’d like a muffin right now, please.) I would love to have the test strips and book to help me with making these changes. Hugs and blessings.

    • The muffins are good! I wish I could send you a couple right now! It takes a while to get used to desert or muffins not being sweet. Took me a while to get used to molasses too, but now I like it. I was a sweet-a-holic before being alkaline! Hugs!!

  3. Myra Turmenne says:

    Thano you so much Sharon for sharing these valuable info and wonderful, healthy recipes!

    Love to learn more

  8. Sharon,

    Thank you so, so much for posting this information – and for sharing your recipes. 🙂

    I’ve been interested in learning more about an alkaline diet and you have made it easy to understand (and reference) here. I bookmarked this post so I can refer to it as needed.

    Much appreciation!

  9. I praise God for you! Thank you for sharing all of this incredible information for those of us who want to eat better and feel better. I have been trying to make sense of all of this info (prior to your article) and have struggled, but you made it all make perfect sense. Thank you for showing us all where to start!!

    • Oh good, Anji! I’m glad it made it easier to understand. You have such an amazing testimony of how God has healed you! You surely need to feed that sweet body with alkaline fuel! You’re got a testimony to share with the world, girl! Love and hugs!

  10. Nancy Jay says:

    Great information. Thank you!

  11. Megan says:

    My family is already dairy free but have been looking into eating more “clean” so this post is perfect, especially with all the recipes! I really love the part with your grandson and teaching our children to eat to fuel their bodies and not just constant junk “because they are kids” as I get told so often. Thank you!

    • Hehe I’m glad you liked me interjecting that about my grandson. He’s never had a sugar desert! He thinks raspberries and blueberries are the best food he’s ever eaten.

  12. Melissa says:

    I would love to try this! I have 4 small children and my husband and I are in our 30’s. I know we need to eat better but need to convince my husband!

  13. Diane Nordman says:

    Dear Sharon. Thank you for this most recent post about alkaline foods. I would love to have a guide and tester if that would be possible. I would really like to change some of my food choices that I cook for my family. I fix too many acid foods and am very concerned that it is not healthy. I appreciate your prayers and I thank you for your ministry. God bless you. Diane Nordman

  14. C.Fisher says:

    This is very interesting! I am really enjoying learning how to improve my health. Thank you for sharing

  15. Thank you so much for this article. I’m living with several different diseases including tumors in my spine. Many days I am unable to function normally. I began juicing last November and I’m beginning to see awesome results. I am working hard to help my body naturally rid itself of disease. I’m still learning everyday, but I pray by next November I will be much healthier and God willing disease and tumor free. I want to be a Momma who can play with her child again and live life without being imprisoned by pain. I’ve also begun drinking apple cider vinegar, and I really love it when it’s mixed with raw honey. I appreciate this article so much and I pray you and your husband continue in good health with the work that Jesus has for you. ??

  16. Julie says:

    I have been trying to make changes with my diet but I can see that I have a long way to go! I have eliminated wheat, sugar, and processed foods and am very interested in knowing more about alkaline food.
    Thanks!

  17. Brenda says:

    Hi Sharon! I’m so happy to see you back! Thank you for a most interesting and informative post. I need some of your energy! This would be at the top of my list for going alkaline.

  18. Tammie says:

    I have been reading up on this for some time and thank you for your honesty in what you’re doing. I now have some evidence from a known “friend” and sister in Christ who has been eating healthy. I have battles my weight for years and can begin down a new path.

  19. Duanna Fike says:

    It is so interesting that I saw this tonight I was just speaking to someone this morning at bible study about needing to become more alkaline. Your recipes look great and I look forward to trying them. I was wondering where do you get the raw goats milk do you have the goats on your farm or do you purchase it from a local farm.

  20. Great article. I’ve been eating healthier these days. I’d love to learn more about alkaline and would love a tester kit. Can’t wait to try some of these recipes too.

  21. Kim Pendergrass says:

    These recipes sound amazing Sharon! I’ve heard tidbits of this diet before, very intriguing, I would love to learn more. I definitely need to remedy the pain in my body and have more stamina & energy. ?

  22. Nancy Kingsriter says:

    We desperately need this info! My husband’s diabetes is out of control and his urine PH is way off. The timing for this couldn’t be better. Thank you for your insightful and amazing posts.

  23. Shirley Oesterle says:

    Thank you Sharon… this is very interesting. I will be looking for one of those test strips. I am sure the druggist will be able to help me. Actually the foods you listed are ones I really like. onions, peppers and fruits…. and nuts. I am not a bread eater and only eat pastas once in awhile. I will find it interesting to find out how I test. Thanks so much.

  24. Jennifer Jeffries says:

    I didn’t realize that a lot of acid in your system could cause sickness. I have a lot of acid because I have to take an antacid almost every day. I would like to learn more about getting healthier by less acid.

  25. Donna G says:

    As a cancer survivor, I need to learn more about this!

  26. Hello Sharon,

    I was thrilled to get this article and the recipes as I am trying really hard to eat more like this in the hopes that it will help me with my autoimmune disease that has taken my eye sight. I still struggle with a lot of inflammation so am hoping this will work. It would certainly be wonderful to have the kit. In Genesis we read about the herbs and green things being given to us for food so our all knowing God provided perfectly for us.

    Blessings,
    Ruth

  27. I definitely need these

  28. Bianca says:

    Thanks for sharing on here and at new year, new you at Journey church! I have became very interested in setting goals to change mine and my family’s (5 girls!) eating habbits! I find that you are very wise and knowledgeable in the nutritional area! I’d love to check my family’s pH levels and your gifts would be awesome to have! Anywhere you can get discounts or freebies…it’s a big help for a stay at home wife and mom of 5!

  29. Paula A Saleny says:

    Sharon, thank you very much, and I thank God for you!! I have been learning about this too, and I found your article very encouraging and helpful!! I have been on a long journey, with a history of various health problems. God has taught me so much, and He continues to faithfully provide!!
    Blessings!!
    Paula

  30. Ronnie Moon says:

    I would love this kit!! I had a trauma about 6 yrs ago and my health went on a spiral. Rapid weight loss, hair loss, finger and tie nails falling off , digestive tract inflamed, lost my smell and taste senses, hearing loss!!! Gosh just writing that list makes me wonder how I’m still here!!! So this could be an indicator to improving my body !! I seem to exist off the acidic list !! So thank you for sharing this information xxx

  31. Hilda Quintanilla says:

    I’m in tears! We need these items desperately! Love you Sharon!

  32. Heidi Kirsch says:

    I love to eat delicious food and consider it a joy to eat healthy food that I look forward to. I’ve realized that my body needs variety or I will resort to eating unhealthy food. Thank you for the recipes and thank you for the prayers to continue to find nourishment.

  33. Marla Lewis says:

    Wow! I didn’t know this. Cancer has been on both sides of my family.

    • Hassan says:

      According to an Italian doctor Dr. Simoncini, cancer is not a hereditary disease, rather it is caused by a fungi and can be treated with providing body an alkaline environment using just one simple compound and that is baking soda. find more on his website http://www.curenaturalicancro.com/en/

  34. Kathryn says:

    Thank you so much Sharon. This is fascinating information and has given me a lot to think about. I am going to see how to use this information with family members who have type 2 DM but will have to be careful regarding dried fruit and fruit juices which have a lot of sugar. May God bless you Sharon.

  35. Jennie says:

    Yes very interested in finding out more about this and having better health.

  36. Juanita Stevens says:

    I just finished watching a servies on the truth about cancer. They covered some of these things about the environment in which cancer grows. It is so true that the more acidic the more they grow.
    I am trying to eat a more akaline diet with some detoxing taking place in my diet as well. It is a challenge though. It would be good to know where I am at on the scale. One can kind of tell by how you feel. I found with the detox I did earlier this year that I had more energy and was able t get off of most of my supplements within 4-6 weeks of detoxing. What an amazing body we have when we care for it properly.

  37. Stacey Valenzuela says:

    Hi Sharon I was so excited to see your post. I was thrilled to see your name. Also thank- you for posting this information. I would REALLY like to learn more about it. Isn’t there a water out there called Kangen? I know I spelled it wrong. I would much RATHER go your route because not only are you bringing up your Alkaline levels you are eating healthy and I need to lose the weight because I have a bad back. Thank- You so very much for putting all your time and effort into doing this and then sharing it with others. Also THANK-YOU for giving us the opportunity to learn more about this. I am excited to read the book and give myself that test so I can start having a good healthy life again. God Bless You and have a great day !

  38. Sarah Downs says:

    thanks for sharing! I have been on a “health discovery” journey ever since I had my son almost 4 years ago. Its almost as if my body completely changed after him and now I fight viruses, digestion issues, (random kidney stones and UTIs), intolerance to certain proteins, etc. I never remember any of this before. I have been using essential oils and they have been helping tremendously but also want to eat and be mindful the best I can be with my temple! I love seeing your and Heather’s posts!

  39. So very interesting, I love learning about how our bodies are affected by what we eat. I have walked with my mother on her cancer journey over this past year and this has emphasized to me that I have to get things inside of me in better order. So that’s my goal this year. I look forward to learning more about this and appreciate the opportunity of your give-away. Thanks so much for posting information like this. I always look forward to what you share.

  40. I have been trying to do the whole clean eating thing, and it’s a struggle with the family. I can handle it, they resist and complain. Sometimes it’s hard not to give in. This is new information to me, I had no idea about the No disease can live in an alkaline environment. I would love to learn more and use the pH tester!

  41. My kids all have skin issues. Atopic dermatitis (eczema). I have been to numerous doctors and I have tried every cream, no showers, even oral steroids. The steroids work temporarily, but are bad for the kids in the long run. I have heard that drinking the oh water may help, but I can’t find it in large quantities. Only small expensive individual bottles. I’m very interested in learning about the oh balance in the body not just for their skin and comfort but for the over all health of my family. I have five kids and I am so exhausted I can’t sleep but I’m so tired I can’t get out of bed in the morning nor do I want to. I get things done only because they have to get done at the last minute. Their is no journey or joy in the daily path. I’m just to achy and tired. I’m very healthy. Blood work couldn’t be more normal. What other information do you have on this subject?

  42. I would love to receive this gift as I continue on with my quest toward clean eating and a healthy lifestyle.

  43. Oh my! This was something I “happened upon” and feel very convicted about. I’m only 44-years-old but feel like my body is falling apart around me. I deal with pain (knee, back, foot, and neck) daily, and I am always looking at ways I can make it better simply by making dietary changes. I am mama to 9 children (5 now grown) but 3 newly adopted little ones at home along with a foster toddler. They keep me hopping, and I would like to be around to do that for a long time and have the energy to keep up! This has me excited, and I am definitely diving in deeper. I would HIGHLY benefit from your giveaway.

  44. Linda Surles says:

    I would love to receive the book and pH tester. Thank you.

  45. Rhonda says:

    Would enjoy having the book and tester. Thank you for the chance!

  46. I sure need this! So tired all the time and just don’t feel healthy. I want to learn this and teach it to my children and grandchildren!

    • Lord, revive Susan’s energy and body! Help her to run and not be weary. Touch her with Your healing power and make all things good. Her her example to pass on to her children and grandchildren. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

  47. Christine says:

    Dear Sharon,
    Bless your heart! I was praying about this very subject of acidity and alkaline in your system. Years ago I was very concerned about getting healthy by eliminating acid foods, but have forgotten about the specific foods and importance of having an alkaline diet and WHY! You also spoke at our church many years ago, and I KNOW that you are a special woman of God, gifted in the area of healthy foods for our bodies and practice this all the time, whether at home or away. I remember you had only eaten cashews that day – nothing else – before you spoke. What energy and vitality you had, and still have!!!! May Our Lord bless you for your message to us about His health for each of us, spiritually and physically.

    • Dear Christine, I love to hear things like that- that you were praying about this very subject! I love God’s timing in all things. He is SO good and faithful to us. I love Him, so much! May the Lord give you all that you need right now to fulfill all that He is putting on your heart. Bless Christine, Lord! Bless her with health, strength and stamina to run this race well! Oh Lord, thank YOU! In Jesus’ name, Amen!

  48. This very topic is something that it’s been on my mind for a while. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Leomyosarcoma. God wonderfully and miraculously healed me. I ate almost Entirely alkaline meals and soon lost quite a bit of weight and felt better than I har in my entire life. In the last 18 months, I began to feel terrible again and realized that I wasn’t feeding myself the way I should be. I let stress get the best of me. My middle child became addicted to drugs, went to jail and pretty soon my whole world was upside down again. In the last 10 days, i have begun to cut out wheat, sugar and other acidic foods and I’m starting to feel better again. I know that I am supposed to be a voice, and I want to share what I know with other people. We to have started a wedding venue as well, I work two other jobs, babysit my granddaughter and I’m constantly on the go. I want nothing more really than to be able to share the things that I know, lead others to Christ. I’m curious after 10 days what my urine ph would test at. I go back to MD Anderdon in Houston next week and hopefully this will be my last trip. I wish you the best and thank you for sharing

    • Wow, Michell have a lot in common- You to have a wedding venue!! That alone is a ton of work! Lord, You alone know all that Michelle goes through daily! Touch her body with Your healing power heal her completely! Give her rest from all the stress. Help her to lay all her burdens before Your Throne trusting that You’ve got her and her family. Bless this family, Lord. Send a wave of refreshing over the whole family, pour Your peace that passes all understanding out generously on them. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

    Yes, I would love to have your book if you are still giving them away! I have recently become so much more aware of the whole issue of alkalinity in our bodies, and would like to work more toward achieving it!

  50. Mary Valentine says:

    Thank you! Thank you! This came at just the right time! I just started The Daniel Plan which goes perfect with getting a good aka line level in my body. I would love the book! I am gluten free and love your recipes and articles. You have been a tremendous help to me!
    Thank you for all you do to help and inspire others!
    Mary

  51. JoAnn Hooser says:

    I have been trying really hard to eat right and this book and tester would be very helpful!!
    Love the recipes!!

  52. Susan Brooks says:

    Thank you Sharon for your positive example and making it sound doable:)

  53. Lisa Nelson says:

    God’s so good!
    Because of a couple of autoimmune diseases, I have felt myself giving up. I’m only 55 but the constant pain and swollen joints, hair loss, depression that I fight, allergy to wheat, and my unwillingness to use prescription drugs to deal with it all had taken me to the point last night of believing I’ll just have to live with it. I followed the AIP diet and felt so much better, but then my niece passed away unexpectedly and I found myself turning to the wrong food for comfort.
    So this morning I woke and declared that “This is the day the Lord has made, I WILL rejoice and be glad in it”!!! I opened my email, saw your post and read it, and am reminded that I can feel better…but yes, it will mean removing those foods I’ve added back in.
    I needed to be reminded I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength, and your words were the reminder of this truth.
    Thanks!!
    Lisa

    • Praise God, Lisa! I love His timing! I’m so sorry you’ve struggled with auto-immune diseases. Lord, thank You for this dear woman. touch her body with Your healing power and heal her completely! Help her to live healthy all the days of her life with no pain. Give her the strength to resist foods that will make her ill. Help her to run and not be weary! Give her hope for her future! In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

  54. Joan Hughes says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this information in such an understandable manner. I have been diagnosed with Polymyalgia Rheumatica (autoimmune disorder) which causes chronic pain all over. I am currently on Prednisone but have been reseaching how to use food as my medicine when I find your post!! I am going to use the recipes you have shared but would be very grateful for the kit you are willing to share. As you pray for each of these comments, I ask that you pray that my hubby would jump on board with me in this journey. Thank you again

    • Lord, You alone know all that Joan goes through daily, the pain and the struggles. We ask You for a complete healing from the top of her head to the tips of her toes! Touch her with Your healing power Lord! Provide everything she needs to live healthy, wisdom, strength, healthy food and her husband to be 100% supportive of healthy eating. Revive this family! In Jesus’ name, Amen!

  55. Beth Schafer says:

    I really appreciate this article. I have been praying and searching
    For the answer to being extremely acid.
    Thank you! Beth

  56. Recipies look awesome but seem so time consuming. Husband pees oh oh strip occasionally.he has hiata hernia and acid reflux and arthritis, and I have colitis. We eat healthy but always can do better. Would love your recipies in a book. Would be so practical to have it in print. We are Christians and towards the end of your blog I was thrilled to see the bible verse and reference to our wonderful Lord.
    Keep up the great work….loved the pictures as well.
    Thankyou
    Ingrid and Joe, Brantford Ontario….where are you from?

    • Thank you, Ingrid! I live in Virginia, USA. That’s a great idea to have a book with all my alkaline recipes. I have so many more but haven’t written them. Thank you for the suggestion! Lord, God you are the ultimate Healer. I ask that you heal this dear family. Touch every cell in their body with Your healing power! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

      • For months I have been checking your website because of how impactful your blog is for me. It is wonderful to see read this post and was well worth the wait! A book with all of your alkaline recipes would be well received. I hope and pray that you write it when you can. Please pray for me too. I want to want to eat more vegetables. I enjoy fruit immensely, but find that eating vegetables is a challenge for me at times. I am self educated when it comes to nutrition and often turn to blogs like yours for practical use of what I am learning. I just started learning about alkaline and acidic foods this year. Your much anticipated blog post this week was perfect in bringing together some of my research. Please add my name for the drawing. Blessings!

  57. Anne Coope says:

    I am in desperate need to get my body alkaline. I have had stomach ulcers since I was 18 and that was 30 years ago. I am tired of being on pills to ease the pain. I need help getting started. I have gone back to school so my income is low and I am supporting 2 children.

    • Wow, Anne! Lord, touch Anne’s body with Your healing power. Heal her stomach of these painful ulcers. Please provide the resources she needs to eat healthy. Give her the wisdom and strength she needs to live this out. Please, Lord! in Jesus’ name, Amen.

  58. Vickie VanCamp says:

    Thank you Sharon for sharing your personal experience and the information about alkaline. I had breast cancer in 2009 and now wonder if the acidity of my diet factored into that? I would love to eat more alkaline rich foods as part of my journey to remain cancer free. I have two darling daughters that I know are at a higher risk for breast cancer since I had it. I want them to remain cancer free as well!!! Thank you for listening to God’s call and being the Godly inspiration you are! I appreciate the truths that God sends to me through you. (I met you at Chambers Camp last fall at the Wesleyan Women’s Retreat. God did many amazing things that weekend!!!)

    • Hi Vickie! God did MANY things indeed that weekend! I’ll never forget it, one of my favorite-ever! Lord, help Vickie and her daughters to remain cancer free all the days of their life! Help them to live healthy lives and give them wisdom in how to do this. Give them the resources needed to eat healthy and maintain an alkaline body. Thank You! In Jesus’ name, AMEN

    Sharon, Loved reading your article. I can believe that what our bodies take in effect our body in the way of disease. We were raised on garden veggies. Dad made a big garden. Because of a stomach-digestive condition, I can’t do many veggies, with the exception of cooked carrots, potatoes, and limited string beans, also cooked. I miss cucumbers, lettuce, eggplant, cabbage, onions, etc.. It has hurt my immune system. I don’t heal well and my diet is crazy. Bland soup consisting of broth, thinly sliced carrots, some string beans, and throw some barley in while cooking. No seasoning other than onion and garlic powder. Peppers and seeds nearly kill me. Still consider myself blessed cause God has saved me from digestive attacks that could have killed me. One reconstructive surgery but condition never left completely. So I now guard all that I eat. I am not complaining, I am blessed to be alive. I am in His hands. Thanks again for article. It was worth reading.

  61. I have been accumulating kidney stones most of my adult life . Time to get alkaline I think . Very interested in the manganese water if you could email me a contact please ? The test kit would be very useful . Thank you for the site and information . The recipes look yum. I did an experiment and fermented my limes in honey . After 1 year in the fridge ( tropical living) they are superb all the sweetness is in the skin and a dash of the juice in an iced lime drink makes it have a richer flavour . When I juice my limes I put skin and all though an extractor . It seems to last along time in the fridge .i should mix the fibre back into it and try the honey ferment I think , it’s a shame to throw that good stuff away. I’m a big fan of salted lime also but the salt is no good for my kidneys .

  62. Dorothy Shackleton says:

    Thank you for this insight, I appreciate your wisdom.

  63. Too much sugar in our diets as well. Need to remember to take care of our bodies that God gave us, to do his work.
