Other foods that have alkalinity, as well as nutrients densely packed in them, are gooseberry, moringa leaves, avocado, berries, leafy greens, quinoa, olives, and nuts, among others. An acidic body, besides inviting diseases, will also “harbor an acidic mind, which is a mind in pre-anger, filled with suspicions, selfishness, feelings of superiority, forgetting earth synchronicity, and nurturing a false ego and pride. An acidic mind is incapable of listening to what Mother Earth is telling us”, Koshy writes.”An alkaline body is disease-free, with no lifestyle diseases.
No cancerous changes can occur in an alkaline body. Alkalinity enables the body to follow the circadian rhythm of life. It also nurtures an alkaline mind which is a calm, all-inclusive mind, capable of listening to Mother Earth, and appreciates her magnificence,” says the author.
