1. For a general guide to healthy eating, read Dr. John McDougall, The McDougall Program, as a start. He has other, more recent and more specialized books too. I always prefer books over websites because I can mark them up with notes.

2. For particular medical problems that might be treated with radical diet change, after reading The McDougall Program or its equivalent, you might visit Dr. McDougall's website and click on the "Medical Info" or other tabs: http://www.drmcdougall.com/index.html

3. For the scientific calculation of the Potential Renal Acid Load of a range of foods, see: Thomas Remer and Friedrich Manz, "Potential Renal Acid Load of Foods and Its Influence on Urine pH," Journal of the American Dietetic Association, Vol. 95, Issue 7 (July 1995), pp. 791-797. For the abstract, see: http://www.adajournal.org/article/PIIS0002822395002197/abstract

4. The Blogger website you are now reading is the most complete and up-to-date source for my experiences. However, for background, you might read my Star McDougaller article ("Rolling Back Dermatitis, Arthritis ..." etc.) at http://www.drmcdougall.com/stars/burgess_laughlin.html

You might also read my comments in several posts ("How I stopped inflammation problems," around April 9, 2005) in the Testimonials section of the McDougall website: http://www.vegsource.com/testimonials/messages/9669.html
