    Dr. Tunsky wrote an excellent book called "The Battle for Health is Over pH", which I read a few years ago. You can still find it at Amazon or other health bookstores for around $12.

    Found a new doc who put me on an alkaline diet.
    It's a bit complex for me, but for starters, I'm eliminating all carbonated beverages (was a big club soda drinker - thought It was a healthy way of getting water).
    Little wonder that my teeth were cracking and muscles aching all over.

    FortunateSon -
    What kind of diet helps with alkalinity? This is one diet I'd like to learn more about; any pointers would be appreciated.

    Update: I read most of the article that Melbo attached - I'd originally thought the full article was displayed :^) Now I can see more of what constitutes an acid/alkaline diet. It's going to take some work to remove some items. Thank God I gave up soda pop a long time ago.

    She gave me a list of alkaline and acidic foods. I'm to have two portions of alkaline (eggplant, pumpkin) for one acid (beef, navy beans)

    No way I can do this now. I'd have to buy another fridge and shop separately.

    I'm slowly getting on board with her and seeing results, but it's going to take a while.

    You can also research alkaline waters. Some are naturally up around 8 and I think one that I was buying for awhile was out of northern michigan and it was 8.7. Fiji and Evian are high in pH and in $$.

    You can also buy alkaline drops to add to your filtered water at home. I use about 6 drops of one called Miracle II in each glass of water I drink from my Berkey. We pretty much only drink water anyway. and beer
