6 Best Ways to Alkalize the Body

1. Seaweeds and Green Superfoods

Considered to be the most beneficial overall.
Basic requirement:

2-4 Tablespoons per day of seaweeds and/or ocean superfoods

Here are two comprehensive blends for this purpose:

a. Earth & Sea Greens (1-2 Tbsp. per day).


a. Higher cost.

b. Taste (for some).


a. Extremely abundant and comprehensive nutrition of both mineral and phytonutrients (plant-based).

b. Provides the safest and greatest measure of health benefits overall.

c. Excellent track record of success worldwide, both ancient & modern.

d. Fastest and safest way to alkalize the body (regulates both high and low pH to 7.3).

e. Chelation power.

g. Nourishes the entire hormonal system back to health.

h. Readily bioavailable.


2. Naturally-Occurring, Electrolyte-Rich Mineral Blends

Basic requirement:
1 or more Tablespoons per day
a. Taste & texture (for some).

a. Moderate cost.

b. Relatively high concentration of both acid and alkaline electrolytes per teaspoon.

c. Provides a broad spectrum of health benefits essential to a good health building program.

d. Chelation power.

e. Radiation detoxification power.

f. Provides the foundational building blocks for all biochemical processes of the body – minerals.

Here are a few earth-based mineral sources for this purpose:

a. Ancient Mineral Blend (an alkalizing mineral source),

b. Mineral Manna (A blend of several naturally- occurring mineral sources),

c. Sacred Clay (increases beneficial stomach acids),

d. Ormalite,

4. Baking Soda

Basic requirement:

1/2 teaspoon 1-2 times per day (or up to 7)


a. Taste (for some, though mild for most).

b. Lowest nutritional profile.

c. Potential serious side effects under certain circumstances.

d. Made only of sodium, carbon hydrogen and oxygen, Sodium Bicarbonate does not provide much in the way of mineral nutrition like an earth-sourced 70+ minerals clay will provide.


a. Very low cost,

b. moderately fast alkalinity.

c. Well documented track record of success and traditional use.

d. Chelation power.


How is Baking Soda made?

a. Soda Ash, mined in the form of the naturally-occurring ore Trona, is first dissolved in water. Then Carbon Dioxide is bubbled up through the liquid causing Sodium Bicarbonate to precipitate as a solid. Underground mineral waters are formed naturally in a similar way.


Potential side effects with excess:

(Regularly check pH of both saliva and urine in order to know when to stop taking Baking Soda.)

a. Excessive alkalinity from regular use.

b. Insufficient stomach acid if taken too close to a meal.

c. Edema due to sodium overload.

d. Congestive heart failure.

e. High blood pressure from excess sodium,

f. Calcium deposits throughout the body among those that consume calcium supplements, antacids, or dairy products.

g. Kidney stones.


PS: This does not mean don't take Baking Soda, just be aware of signs of excess and moderate your intake accordingly.


5. Sunlight Through the Eyes - Increases calcium assimilation throughout the body which increases alkalinity.

Basic requirement:

5-45 minutes per day.


a. Requires learning a simple technique and scheduling time in the day to practice.

b. Not always available.

c. Relatively low nutritional benefit per teaspoon.

d. Only mild chelation power.

e. Dietary or lifestyle changes required for most.

Green Superfoods (without veges or isolated natural compounds), and naturally occurring mineral blends (including unaltered clays and salts) produce the most profound health benefits. Sunlight through the eyes provides additional benefits, though dependent upon length of exposure. In combination with a teaspoon of baking soda every day, and a thoughtful, well combined diet, careful to balance the intake of acid and alkaline foods, your body will naturally stay at the optimal 7.0 pH.

A New Clay Source -
AquiTerra Clay Benefits Compared to Sacred Clay

Similar, yet enhanced properties – Superior processing method

We have recently discontinued the pyrophyllite clay (Sacred Clay) for internal use. We are shifting our basic human use clay to one that is proving to outperform even the pyrophyllite in several ways (though I am still a great fan of the pyrophyllite, as I am of all clays).

When we find a superior version of clay (or herbs), our preference is to use it in the areas that it excels, thus the importance of this shift to a clay with a greater performance edge than the even the Sacred Clay.

"AquiTerra" is the name of our new clay for internal and skin application purposes. The name translates to "water-earth", representing the hydrothermal (underground aquifer) influence involved in the making of this clay geologically.

How does AquiTerra compare with Sacred Clay? Go here to discover why we consider AquiTerra superior to Sacred Clay in several ways, though we still have a great respect for pyrophyllite.

The truth is, not a single product, natural or otherwise (including every one mentioned on this site) is capable of healing the human body. Neither an herb, a clay, a vitamin or mineral supplement, a seaweed or algae, an organic food, nor any other substance is capable of healing the body. In every instance the body will take the nutrition given it, break it down into millions of pieces, combine it with other components already available within the body to make new compounds, then deliver those newly formed metabolic compounds to the places that it knows it needs to go - all according to its own wisdom! In this manner the body creates its own medicines, which are nothing more than its normal complement of amino acids, proteins, enzymes, hormones and a vast number of other natural chemical processes.

Our job is not to target diseases or micromanage specific chemical reactions or hormone levels. Our job is simply to nourish the body with a complete spectrum of the kinds of foods that it will recognize as "real food". Real food is that which is compatible with the organic nature of the body's original construction. The human body is a natural organism. It was created from the "dust (or clay) of the earth". Therefore, the perfect food for the body will also be of earthen origin - unaltered. Earthen resources that qualify as real food include such things as clay, water, algae, seaweeds, herbs, fruits, nuts, seeds, and vegetables. Anything less than whole would not be a "real food". This includes "natural" vitamin and mineral supplements assembled by a laboratory rather than by Nature.

Our job is not to try to improve on Nature with our so-called "science", our job is merely to provide the body with an abundance of real food and let the body decide what to do with it. Earthen resources contain a vast array of nutrient-based building blocks for the body to select from in order to construct its own medicine. It is also our job not to toxify the body with foods that are not real or compatible with the body, and to detoxify all that is foreign and poisonous. In this manner, the body will have the greatest freedom to select from the vast array of resources that we provide in order to simply clean house and build life-giving strength. Again, this entire process is performed, not by our manipulation of chemical reactions, but through our support of the body's own inherent wisdom.
