pH of the Human Body is Critical for Health
(Continued from Page 2)
Diabetes Is Caused By Acid
The pancreas produces one of the highest pH body fluids - pancreatic juice with a pH of 8.8. A shortage of calcium ions in the body impairs the production and the release of the insulin hormone. This eventually leads to an acidic blood condition. With the accumulated acidic waste products coating the receptor sites of the insulin producing beta cells, insulin is prevented from being synthesized or utilized. Diabetes is the result. This could be improved by an alkaline diet and detoxification.
Kidney Disease is Caused By Acidity
As acidic waste products accumulate in the blood, the kidneys - the bloodstreams filter - become more taxed, leading to nephritis, uremic poisoning, bladder diseases, etc. All kidney disease is acid related, which can be improved by an alkaline diet. Kidney stones are salts of phosphoric acid and uric acid, generally combined with calcium and/or magnesium. These salts are acidic salts that gradually build up into a stone like object.
Afthough calcium and magnesium are in the salts, they are there to soften the poisonous effects of uric acid and phosphoric acid. Some people mistakenly believe that kidney stones are formed because there’s too much calcium. This is not true. Calcium compounds will dissolve in acidic urine, while a kidney stone will not. If you add calcium into the blood and lower blood acidity by an alkaline diet kidney stones will dissolve from the inside.
Allergies Are Acid Related
Allergies are an irritation/inflammation reaction appearing as allergy symptoms as a means of dealing with acid toxins. If a beneficial cleansing substance is taken such as wheat grass or fresh vegetable juice, sinus swelling, runny nose, skin reactions, tearing eyes, etc., are all ways of eliminating acid toxins. Thus, yeast and fungus whose poisons are acid may contribute significantly to your hay fever and sneezing. If you have no symptogenic yeast or fungus, it would be impossible for you to have allergies.
Obesity Linked To Acid pH
Over ingestion of carbohydrates and fats and not enough exercise to burn them as fuel causes our bodies to store fatty acids. Acetic acid, lactic acid and LDL cholesterol are the derivatives of fatty acid. Lactic acids and acetic acids lower the pH of body fluids drastically. This prevents the cellular engines from burning on all cylinders reducing metabolic rate. So a combination of lack of exercise, which reduces oxygen, toxic acidic residues around the cell, infiltration of morbid microforms in and around the cell and a reduction of peak performance energy burning from the mitochondria engines, causes obesity to set in.
With the obesity problem in this country, what exactly does this excess weight consist of? The answer is fatty acids. However, the body does not dispose of unburned food. This unburned food or fatty acids are stored in fat cells until they can be burned at a later time through some form of aerobics. To a point it is a reservoir to later be burned, but later never comes and we keep adding to the fatty acid reservoir. Acid coagulates blood and there is not much blood flow around fat. Usually the capillaries around the acid accumulation are clogged up. These fatty acids generally form under the skin, especially around the waste line for men and around hips, thighs and breasts for women. When you compare the face of an old woman with a young woman, you can see the difference in the build up fat in the face of the older woman due to lack of blood flow therefore loosing elasticity. This build up of fat in the face takes place gradually over time.
True understanding of the process of aging and obesity will give you the incentive to drink alkaline beverages and eat alkaline foods that burn fast. Whatever it takes to help your body dispose of acidic waste slowly and steadily should be implemented.
Gastro-Intestinal Disorders Linked To Acidity
All stomach disorders, indigestion, nausea, gas, gastric reflux, are symptoms again that are caused by excess acidity in the gastric region. That is why antacids are prescribed. The neutralizing of acid through ingestion of alkaline water, alkaline foods and alkaline minerals, will help to alleviate the acid related intestinal disorders including ulcers without taking destructive antacids and ibuprofen.
Arthritis is Caused By Acidity
Many different forms of arthritis are the result of acid accumulation from the blood into the joints and wrists. It is this accumulated acid that damages cartilage and coats the cells that produce synovial and bursa fluids causing a dryness which irritates the joints, manifesting swelling. With detoxification coupled with an alkalizing diet, arthritis will disappear.
Gout Is Caused By An Acid Condition
Gout is an arthritic disease resulting from an excess of uric acid crystals in the blood from digestion of red meat, seafood, alcohol or poultry. The uric acid salts deposit in the surrounding tissues of the feet, hands and toes causing swelling and severe pain due to the broken glass like structure of the uric acid crystals especially in the big toe. The only solution in mainstream medicine for gout is deadly painkillers and anti-inflammatories, which are both acidic and further irritate the joints. Unfortunately, the joints have limited blood circulation to carry out the acid wastes. With an alkaline diet and increased circulation, gout will disappear.
Eye Diseases Linked To Acidity
We generally do not consider the change in our vision to an acid condition. As we accumulate phosphates and urates etc. in our cells, the cells loose more oxygen. This causes more unburned sugar in the cell that will bond protein molecules. The end result is that the cells and tissues get stiff, hard and inflexible. These calcium deposits collecting on the optic nerve or ganglia are called cataracts. Loss of vision and macular degeneration are the same.
Morning Sickness is Acid Related
When a woman gets pregnant, the fetus takes priority getting all the necessary alkaline minerals since the baby is born with the highest alkalinity. This means that while the mother is sleeping she looses alkaline minerals creating blood acidity. This phenomenon is known as morning sickness. By eating an alkaline diet and drinking alkaline beverages morning sickness will disappear. (Editor's Note: Some authors also believe that vegetables cause morning sickness as they contain toxins harmless to adults but toxic to fetuses. They suggest eating only fruit and carbohyrdrates).
Acid Foods & Beverages
carbonated soft drinks
Alkaline Foods & Beverages
- vegetables (greens)
- herbal tea.
(Editor's Note: It is best if these are eaten raw)
A perfect ratio of acid pH daily is 80% alkaline and 20% acid in the form of grains. eggs and acidic fruits.
pH Values Of Different Drinks
- A popular brand of cola — 2.5. It takes 32 glasses of a 10.0 pH alkaline water to neutralize one can of cola)
- Diet soft drinks —3.2
- Popular brand beer — 4.7 pH.
- Distilled water —7.0 pH. Filtered tap water — 8.4 pH.
- Fresh vegetable juice (greens) — 8.9 pH.
- Alkaline water — 10.0 pH.
Blood with a pH value of 7.45 contains 64.9 % more oxygen than blood with a pH value of 7.3. An astounding difference for just a minor variance. Acidity of some soft drinks is caused by carbon dioxide, which is a waste product we breathe out. Carbonated beverages are a waste product, which the body rejects in the form of a burp. This is a double whammy. Not only do you shove a toxic residue down your throat when drinking them, these drinks are tilled with caramel coloring, phosphoric acid and ten teaspoons of sugar, which creates more of an acid environment and wipes out your immune system for up to four hours.
Human Body pH Fluid Values
- Stomach juice (hydrochloric acid) — 1.5 pH.
- Skin —4.7 pH.
- Saliva —7.1 pH.
- The cell — 7.1 pH.
- Blood —7.35 to 7.45 pH.
- Pancreatic juice — 8.8 pH.
When I talk about acidic or alkaline food, I am not talking I about how they taste. For example, oranges, lemons and limes taste acidic and have a pH of 3.5, but this acidity is generated by organic acids, which can all be burned away through digestion. However, inside these fruits there are alkaline minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium. Therefore, oranges, lemons and limes are considered to be an alkaline forming food. A large amount of potassium is found in organic soybeans, carrots, tomatoes and fruits such as apricots, avocados, bananas, dates, oranges and watermelon. Sodium and potassium also work with proteins, phosphates and carbonates to keep a proper balance between the amount of acid and alkaline in the blood.
Satan’s Assault Against The Blood
Everything revolves around an evil system creating acids to the blood. The life of the flesh is in the blood (Lev. 17:11). Satan is contaminating the bloodline with acids. Just look at some of the weapons he uses to take man out. Alcohol — acid. Cigarettes — acid. Coffee — acid. Sugar — acid. Carbonated beverages — acid. All of your fast food restaurants — acid with toxic congestive residues that are poison.
This is an evil ploy to acidify and contaminate the blood of God’s people. Daily we are assaulted with toxic industrial contaminants ranging from pesticides, herbicides, fossil fuels, fluorocarbons, acid rain, pollution, carbon monoxide, refined processed foods, sugar laden beverages, acid rock music, stress, anger, bitterness, etc. By getting us to ingest, drink and expose ourselves to an array of toxic chemicals that contaminate the blood, and by depleting the soil of alkaline minerals through corrupt farming practices, Satan is slowly taking mankind out.
As long as there are sufficient amounts of alkaline minerals in the body, poisonous acids are neutralized. There is a family of minerals that are especially suited to neutralizing, or detoxifying strong acids: sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. They exist as salts in our tissues and are highly alkaline. A healthy body maintains alkaline reserves by recruiting elsewhere if insufficient minerals are not available from the diet, such as bone (calcium), or muscle (magnesium). So if we get back to high alkaline, organic fruits and vegetables which have rich top soil, and farmers rotated their crops and didn’t use the acidic pesticides and herbicides, then we could alkalize the blood and keep the pH high and keep the reserves high enough to where the body is not going to be robbing Peter to pay Paul.
The Acid - Alkaline Battle In Our Bodies
This is a spiritual chemical battle going on 24 hours a day, every day in the blood and tissues. If you take the spiritual blinders off, you will notice that everything in this world is perpetrating an acid environment. God is trying to alkalize you and Satan is trying to acidify you. The battle between life and death and the struggle of humanity is between acid and alkaline pH. This so-called complicated spiritual battle for the physical body is as simple as that. Satan gives us acid music, acid foods, acid beverages, acid rain, acid emotions (anger; fear; bitterness, stress, anxiety, etc.), acid pharmaceuticals, acid recreational drugs (cocaine, heroine, ecstasy, LSD, etc.), acid pesticides, acid herbicides, acid fungicides, acid industrial products, acid exhaust (cars, planes, etc.), acid petroleum toxins and acid petroleum based chemicals, etc. This is spiritual warfare at the highest level.
What would combat or neutralize this satanic assault to acidify mankind? Good clean air (oxygen), spiritual healing music, alkaline foods (fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes), alkaline beverages (fresh pure water; herbal teas, fresh-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices etc.), positive thoughts and emotions, following the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, self control), exercise, fasting, being outdoors in the sun, herbs and natural whole food supplements, organic non-toxic cleaning products, etc. When life is in the blood through living nutrients and the pH is in proper balance, death and disease cannot exist. Are you choosing death through an acid lifestyle or life through following God’s simple formula of alkalinity? The Bible says that we have the choice between life and death:
“I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” (Deuteronomy 31:19) Which are you going to choose?
