yogurtI mainly used Dr. Susan Brown’s book, The Acid Akaline Food Guide, but I also referred to Vivian Goldschmidt’s book, The Bone Health Revolution. They agree about the akalyzing properties of most foods, but disagree on whether soured milk products, such as yogurt and sour cream, are alkalyzing or acidifying. I’ve written to both women on the websites to try to find out the reason for the discrepancy, but neither has replied. Perhaps it depends on individual body chemistry. As for me, I now include yogurt and a small amount of sour cream in my diet, but not other dairy products, and these additions have had no detrimental effects on my body’s pH level. The proof is in the pH testing of my saliva and urine,
using ph testing tape. As long as my body’s pH level hovers at the 7.3-7.4 range, I’m happy.

    I got accident and broken my femur bone( R lag) in complex about 100 days back(17th September)last year. yet need to fit as surgeon said several 100 days and then perhaps grafting.
    I said if grafting is the only way then it will be done soon just to wait and see.

    I am 57 y using all medicines as given by them 1-calcium 5000 iu(rock D) , 2- soft D- calcium 5000iu, ( Alfaclidol calcium .05 mg ).

    milk, yogurt , orange, banana, and other available fruits and home food, no meat.

    Kindly advice me how to get quick repair of badly damaged femur bone.

    Waiting your favor able reply.
