Below is a list of acid forming and alkaline forming foods

To help alkalize the body and get it back on the path of good health, we recommend performing a colon cleanse. This will also help to remove mucoid plaque from the body.

Acid-forming Foods

(Avoid entirely while on a cleanse)

Alkaline-forming Foods

All processed foods with wheat or “white” flour

*These foods will slow down the cleansing process, reduce the amount of plaque removed and therefore should be limited.

The foods which are alkaline forming are non-toxic to the body and have an abundance of alkalizing minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and iron. They are also non-mucus forming.

Acid forming foods are either toxic, such as alcohol, or are usually starch and protein rich food, which should be consumed in moderation. Their dominant minerals are sulfur, phosphorous and chlorine. These foods are mucus forming and can contribute to the buildup of mucoid plaque if eaten too frequently.

To alkalize the body quickly, we recommend mixing up a good superfood or supergreens mixture. There are many super greens on the market, but mixing it yourself in this way and buying the ingredients bulk is much cheaper and you are assured it’s all organic.. All people should have something like this as a part of their daily diet.

 

6. Mucoid Plaque

When a person eats too much acid forming food for too long, the body becomes deficient in alkaline forming minerals and the digestive function becomes impaired. In this situation the body is often forced to excrete mucous into the bowel to protect itself from inadequately digested food. If this happens too often the mucous becomes hardened (mucoid plaque) and impairs food absorption. This hardened mucous is very difficult to remove and becomes a breeding ground for parasites and other unfriendly organisms, which are a constant source of toxins that flow into the bloodstream and wreak havoc on all the organs. This is the start of disease. As time goes on the organs start to break down, and generally speaking, this is where most disease originates.

Below are some pictures of mucoid plaque that was removed from a person doing a cleanse:

The plaque takes on the shape of the bowel because it was stuck the wall, and is often rubbery.
