    I noticed that some people here are eating Alakine rich diets and say they feel better. I've been eating low carb since 1998 which is more Acid/Alakine balanced and stayed very thin from it which has helped my FM, but I am thin enough now to move over and maintain a Alakine rich diet if it will help my FM. My goal is get rid of the fatigue.

    Can someone explain the diet? Is it a raw food diet?


    Thanks!

    Thank you! This is opposite of what I do now. It is a big leap from a low carb diet.

    Something that no one has been able to explain to me is how something acidic like Grapefruit, can be metabolized as alkaline in the body. Apple Cider vinegar too.

    Jay Kordich (The JuiceMan) says that juicing vegetables will alkalanize the system.

    William Wong N.D. says that you can use pH strips from the local pharmacy to check your urine for acid/alkaline balance.
