pH Balance - Alkaline is good, Acid is bad
After I was diagnosed
with osteoporosis I came across a reference to excess acidity drawing
calcium out of the bones. I read Dr Baroody's book, "Alkalize
or Die" which was the first to come out about pH Balance. It is
a great book.
It explains in detail how we have allowed chronic disease to take over
our bodies by eating the wrong food and having stressful lives.
It often takes years for your body to show the consequences of excess
acid but, by 50, our grace period has run out and most people are showing
some negative effects.
There is much evidence
that most Americans over the age of 50 are suffering from acid overload.
When our body ph is too acid we are vulnerable to all kinds of
diseases. Bacteria, mold, yeast and fungi thrive in an acid environment.
If you are over-acid you will not be able to lose weight no matter how
much you diet and exercise. The body stores fat and water to protect
itself from acid in the body. If you are working out with an acid ph
you create more uric acid for the body to get rid of. Sluggish digestion
is also tied to acid ph. In fact, there are many doctors and nutritionists
who think correcting the ph of your body is the logical first step to
getting well and to a new vibrant life.
Most of the food we eat on the Standard American
Diet is acid forming and therefore addicting. I'm sure if you are reading
this you have already made some adjustments in your eating habits. Proteins,
fats, processed foods of all kinds, are all acid-forming. Really the
only things that aren't are vegetables, some fruits and some nuts. So,
the trick is, to take a drink of green powder
or a glass of lemon water with baking soda in it about an hour after
eating acid-forming foods, then your pH Balance will come back into
the healthy range.
You test your urine in the morning to check
the ph level. Then check again after lunch and dinner to see how the
food you ate affected you. I have had a healthy diet for years now and
yet, when I tested in the afternoon, an hour after lunch, my ph was
acid. I merely had to change a few things in my diet and I became alkaline
again. I am selling here
the best test strip on the market, the one Dr Baroody recommends,
so you can test your acid balance. If you test acid with the strips,
you can have a green drink or half a lemon in water and bring your ph
back into balance. Lemon is acid but it creates an alkaline condition
in your body. Try it and you'll see for yourself. Test one hour after
You can also test your ph level before and
after a stressful event and notice how much your levels have changed.
Becoming emotionally upset is as hard on our bodies as french fries
and coke. It's really not worth it. Cultivate joy and peace and your
ph level will stabilize.
Robert Young has a good book also, "Ph
Miracle". He has a very informative site about acid/alkaline balance.
His way of eating is very healthy but I think it is too extreme for
most people who are not motivated by suffering. The solutions I am suggesting
will be a transition for people to explore the good feelings and energy
of having correct pH Balance.
If you are suffering
from diabetes, arthritis, cancer or any major disease, you will definately
want to read more about controlling the ph of your body. Buy
some test strips and see for yourself then you can get educated about
I can't stress enough
that the time to sit back and expect your doctor to take care of you
is over. Health has been my major interest for decades so I have
seen this coming. Doctors don't have the time or inclination to research
nutritional issues. It's not in their curriculum. They have become drug
suppliers and the evidence is mounting that most drugs do more harm
than good. Drugs are usually designed as selective poisons aimed at
certain symptoms. Unfortunately the drugs affect our entire body not
just the symptom they were aimed at. We will eventually look back on
that as insanity. We are complete organisms and we need complete foods
to heal our bodies and bring us back to balance. Take a look at the
green food I am selling on the site - it
really is the best one out there and will help to alkalinize your body.
