PH : I use 1 Umeboshi plum and 1 cup of Bancha Tea morning and night. after the radiation implants that caused my intestine to bleed and kept me in the bathroom all day long i found this to totally stop the bleeding and keep my ph level right.
i would like to start using umboeshi plum paste, because my body seems to be craving it and it seems to have tons of health benefits. I am concerned because ive read that it is alkalzing in the body which I know is a good thing but I already have a hard time digesting because I dont have enough hcl ie acid.... Will the plum paste alkalize my digestive tract?? thanks to anyone who might know!

Umeboshi 1000 years of healing: There are texts relating the medicinal uses of these pickled plums that date to over 1000 yrs. ago. It neutralizes fatique and detoxes the body.
If you can find dried plum ( ume) extract, that is even better. These plums have been used for years for healing and to enhance health. Many japanese take a pickled plum with some tea to start their day. When available, Japanese samurai treasured it and consumed it daily also using it to purify water.
I use less than one eighth of a tsp. of the paste ( which I can find in health food stores and, wow, I have even seen it in some food markets) to enhance my morning tea.
It has an agressive flavor. It can jolt your eyes open so please be careful and dilute it before tasting it. It tastes acidic, tart, but it alkalizes the body.
