An email from someone raised a question: “so my understanding
is that in order to get a boy baby, I should eat high acid
foods, but what types of foods are in this category?” Before I
started listing foods, I had to tell her that she was mostly
wrong because what she needs is not acidic foods. Below are the
reasons for my ideas.
Why You Really Want To Eat Alkaline Foods if you are
trying To Have a Boy Baby: Here is why you do not want
to eat acidic foods. An acidic environment if very rough and
sometimes deadly for boy sperm. I am specifically talking about
the Y-chromosomes which, when pared with your egg, will produce
a boy. One of the ways that people who are trying for girl
babies accomplish this is to make their PH very high. This is
not what you are going for. You want an alkaline environment,
which means making good use of either alkaline foods or
alkaline douches or both.
So What Types Of Foods Should You Be Eating If You Want
A Son, Then? I often tell people that the boy diet is
a much healthier one than the girl diet. That is because many
fruits and vegetables have a low pH, while meats, dairy,
processed foods, and sweets tend to have a higher pH. Some
fruits and vegetables are lower in pH than others are though.
Examples of good ones are green beans, carrots, spinach,
celery, lettuce, asparagus, tomato, lemon, lime, and
However, if you really want to get specific about this, some
foods are alkaline when you consume them but they then become
acidic when your body goes to digest them. This process is
quite individual for most people. I recommend getting PH
testing strips, consuming the foods that generally have a low
PH and then testing you after this to make sure that they are
reacting the way that they are supposed to.
If all of this food business seems too complicated and
frustrating, (it is not very bad) then you can try douching
with different ingredients and testing in the same, way to see
what works best for you. However, know that once you test your
reaction to a food, you do not have to repeat it; you only need
to make a note of it.
Timing vs. PH: (Or Combining Both 🙂 Sometimes,
people ask me if they can abandon the whole PH thing and
concentrate instead on just trying to conceive on the day of
ovulation, as this is also favorable to getting a son. I
absolutely advocate getting your timing down (and using a good
ovulation predictor), but I do not think that one or the other
of these things absolutely works all alone. Sure, you will up
your odds but doesn’t it make sense to do all you can? It is
not that much more trouble to do both of these at once.
In addition, if you can add in one more tasks, you can try to
use deep penetration when you have sex or intercourse. This is
said to give the Y sperm a slight advantage and of course,
every little bit helps.
I’ve put together a few websites that take a lot of the guess
work out of choosing your baby’s gender when getting
pregnant. You’ll find step by step instructions, resources
for douche recipes and food pH lists, information on when to
conceive, tips, support, and examples of ovulation predictors
/ pH testing strips.
