Edgar Cayce, (1877-1945) one of the world's most known God gifted healer's, was very much aware of the caveat's of a high acid diet even before fast food restaurants and highly processed foods appeared in main stream America. Cayce was very much against fried foods, for example, because it changed the molecular structure designed for humans to consume. Cayce felt 80% of our diet should be from alkaline foods as well as interesting enough, local foods to the region of the patient.
Cayce actually said "an almond a day will keep the Doctor away." The gift of Edgar Cayce is definitely a topic of it's own and worth reading. We suggest the Edgar Cayce Foundation owned by his family. There are too many books in agreement, but with their own spin. Edgar was a randomly selected research paper in college for Mabel some 20 years ago. Highly skeptical at the start, her paper and research supported he was a divinely gifted man and it dramatically changed the way she looked at food and health.
Who is this
Medical doctors try to
test the acidity or alkalinity of the body tissues and
cells by analyzing the blood. Pioneers Carey Reams,
Harold Hawkins, or Emanuel Revici developed methods to
measure urine pH and other factors such as saliva pH.
Modern proponents of the alkaline diet look at the pH
of blood, saliva, and urine, in addition to health
symptoms and other factors.
