Bacteria and disease thrive in an acidic environment. And soda is pretty much tops on the list of food that makes your body acidic. Water with lemon or lime is an excellent beverage choice to help alkalize. Here is an excerpt from the "Top 10 Lyme Disease Treatments" book that goes into it a bit:

And here is a link to one of many charts you can find listing which foods help alkalize your body and which make your body acidic.

Notice sea salt is one of the most alkalizing substances while table salt is one of the most acidifying. We made the switch here. I have read about 80% of your diet should consist of alkalizing foods.

There are soooo many things we can do to help our bodies fight this. The least expensive things you can do that really help are to use a rebounder (mini trampoline) (under $50), a portable infra red sauna (under $200 from ebay) and change your diet. You really can beat this!!!

not again

Thank you for that info!! I'm going to print out that food chart, as that is one way someone could really impact their health w/ very little cost - which has to be a main concern of mine right now.
