Maintain A Balanced pH

(Modified from "The Importance of pH in Human Health", by Dr. Robert O. Young)

Acidity is a condition that weakens the body.

Excess acidity forces your body to borrow alkaline minerals - including sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium -from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralize) respiratory, dietary, environmental and metabolic acid to then safely remove it from the body. Evacuation happens through the four channels of elimination: respiration, urination, defecation and perspiration. The results can have a severe impact on the body, and prolonged 'corrosion' -'rot' due to high acidity- a condition that may go undetected for years.

It affects virtually every person in our society because of the way we live, the way we eat, the way we think, and the environment we live in. The result is an internal environment where dis-ease can easily manifest, as opposed to a pH-balanced environment which allows for normal body functions — necessary for the body to resist dis-ease. If we have a healthy body, we will maintain sufficient alkalinity to meet emergency demands.

However excessive amounts of acids have to continually be neutralized, otherwise our alkaline reserves will become depleted, leaving the body in a weakened, dis-ease-prone condition.

There remain too many practitioners who believe the body can some how balance its pH, as would be the case if we were eating raw foods and herbs.

The truth be told according to Dr. Lynda Frassetto, acid / alkaline researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, is that we have turned an evolutionary corner where we do not handle acidic waste the way we used to.

Her research showed the volume of acid waste our body has to handle each day forces it to preserve its strategic reserves- the kidney and liver — our major essential detoxifying organs. She found almost 1,000 ageing subjects' bodies are now'stock piling' acid in fatty deposits rather than eliminating it via the kidneys and liver. In its infinite wisdom, the body has chosen to save the kidney and liver from degradation by excess acid. Of course, there is a cost. It's called obesity, lowered immunity, lack of energy and the whole host of acid related dis-eases we are subject to that include cancer, diabetes, osteoarthritis and more, too much more.

As a scientist Dr. Robert O. Young discovered two very important things about the human body. First the human body in its perfect healthy state is alkaline by design. Second, all functions of the human body from moving to thinking produce acidic waste products. If these acidic waste products are not eliminated out through the four channels of elimination they can potentially make the body sick and tired. This is why I came to the conclusion that there is only one sickness, one disease and one treatment.

The one sickness and the one disease IS the over-acidification of the blood and the tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating and thinking. The one treatment or the one health is to maintain or restore the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet.
