The alkaline diet to help balance ph is not to bad of a diet to follow after you have done the yeast infection cleanse, and to keep you healthy throughout your life. However, don't get to carried away with trying to become real alkaline, to much of a good thing can be a bad thing. But I would try to keep my meals to the neutral side, which is easily done when you combine two alkaline foods with one acidic food.
I have tried to compile a complete list of foods for you as I can in their appropriate categories for the alkaline diet and to balance ph. However, I have not edited the list for what is good for yeast and what isn't. That list is on the candida diet page.
If you have tested your urine ph and are below 5.6 first thing in the morning, then 70% of your diet should be from the alkaline diet food category. The other 30% can be from the acid forming foods. I would in any case stay away from the Highly Acid and Acid Forming Foods like coke. Colas have a ph of 2.8 and it would take 32 glasses of alkaline water with a ph of 7.0 to neutralize the acid from one can of coke in the body.
There are two kinds of alkaline and acid forming foods. One of course is the acids or alkaline substances the foods themselves contain. The other is the acid or alkaline forming ability of a food after it is digested. Take for instance a lemon which is very acidic, but once digested it has an alkalizing effect in the body. The absolute best foods for the alkaline diet and to raise body ph are not surprisingly, green.

Other Acid Forming Compounds
Most prescription medicines and over the counter drugs can be highly acidic as well. Recreational drugs and alcohol are also acid forming. Chemicals and toxins that we use and are exposed to every day at home which number upwards of 250 also cause acidity, overloading the immune system and the liver. Disease and the growth of microforms result which can create even more acidity. Eventually, life threatening diseases can develop and can result in death.
To help balance ph by using the alkaline diet and certain alkalizing health supplements, the body can cleanse itself of toxins and restore health on a cellular level. Oxygen and nutritional absorption for the body is greatly enhanced creating an environment where the immune system can heal and rebuild itself.
That's all you really need to do, pretty simple.
