ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - February 15, 2017) - Honduran naturalist and holistic health guru, Dr. Sebi might have been best known for his claims that individuals should be only consuming foods that are identified as 'alkalizing plant foods (the alkaline diet)' to support the claim on his website that, "These foods control the acid level in the body, which protects against harmful mucus buildup that compromises organs and leads to the development of disease." Dr. Nishant Rao -- Medical Director of the nationally recognized weight loss program, Diet Doc believes that this particular claim isn't backed up by the facts. "The truth is that food has a very minor impact on the acid level within the body, which is in fact controlled by the lungs and the kidneys." Dr. Rao continues, "The body's normal acidic range is extremely narrow 7.35 to 7.45. Additionally, the pH for blood (which Dr. Sebi's diet is presumably referring to) is different from that of various cells in various parts of the body." Blood pH is highly regulated by the body, to the point where severe health issues can occur if it is thrown out of range.
Also, Dr. Rao warns that dieters should be aware of additional claims that aren't entirely factual. "Sebi's dietary information includes a few dubious statements such as, 'fruit contains protein'." Dr. Rao states that, "The diet's focus on vegetables that offer very little protein will produce weight loss, but that weight will primarily be muscle and will be very short lived, in addition to an overall negative effect on health and hormones." Dr. Rao believes that rather than merely attempting to eat an alkaline-based diet, individuals should opt for doctor-supervised diet planning that can be individual-specific in order to tackle one's dietary needs. While consuming more fruits and vegetables is always a good choice, overall it is more beneficial health-wise to create a nutritionally balanced diet to address the entire body's needs.
