All life on earth requires the optimum environment in which to survive, one aspect of this is the pH, whether a substance is acidic or basic (alkaline). The alkaline diet (also known as the ASH diet) is based on the concept that different foods that we consume can affect the overall pH balance in our bodies.
Remember our bodies have evolved to work optimally when provided with the right environment to function.
