Tissue Ph on the diet

I have read that the Ph of the blood is very close to 7.3 (alkaline). The blood doesn't tolerate much deviation. The blood corrects it's Ph by varying the minerals in it. If the Ph gets too high it gets rid of some alkaline minerals (calcium, potassium or magnesium). If it gets too low it obtains minerals from the diet, if not enough in the diet it will obtain the minerals from the tissues and bone (calcium). Therefore is is important to keep the tissues alkaline so that the bones do not get depleted of calcium. To keep the tissues alkaline, a diet needs to averages out it's Ph to be alkaline. Fruit and vegetables are mainly alkaline, proteins are mainly acidic and fats are mainly neutral.
Therefore, the diet has to contain a certain amount of vegetables and/or fruit to keep tissues alkaline.
This is what the literature has claimed.

The Rosedale diet is very low on vegetable and virtually no fruit. Some people have extremely low amounts of vegetables also..
The tissue Ph can be approximated by measuring the saliva Ph about 2 hours after eating.
The tissue Ph can be balanced by an amount of vegetables even on the Rosedale diet. But I don't know how many people try.

I have not read anywhere Dr Rosedale refer to Ph in his writings on these web pages.
I know that Dr Rosedale knows thoroughly how the body system works.
My question is: What does Dr Rosedale think about tissue Ph and it's requirement to be a little alkaline?

    When things slow down for Dr. Rosedale, he may comment on these type of questions.

    Thank you.
    I will wait for Dr Rosedale to comment on this and the other issue still outstanding in another thread "Vitamin C supplementation"

    Fhutt, Dr. Rosedale's new book may address some of these things. We are hoping that it will be available for purchase soon - I do not know all that it will cover, will have to wait and see.

    • A notice will be posted here on this site as well as Dr. Rosedale's main-site when the Book will be available..

    At this point it is my understanding that Dr. Rosedale is working hard on its publication.

    I am looking forward to it and I assume pricing will be noted as well.
