ALKALIZING: WHAT IS IT? AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? AND
HOW TO KEEP YOUR BODY ALKALINE.
The human body is alkaline by design
The human body is alkaline by design but acidic by function. Every living cell in the body creates metabolized waste, which is acidic. The nutrients from our food are delivered to each cell, the cells burn with oxygen in order to provide energy for us to live. The burned nutrients become metabolized waste.
All waste products are acid; the body discharges the waste through urine, bile and perspiration. Our body can’t get rid of 100% of the waste it produces which in turn, creates an over load of toxicity. With out proper elimination, the acid waste products become solid wastes, such as micro toxins, toxins, fungus, bacteria and mucus. These accumulate and build up in our blood, organs and tissue. This accumulation of solid waste products accelerates the depletion of minerals and other nutrients, causes disease and accelerates the aging process.
Although our bodies work hard to dispose of acidic waste, eating acidic foods makes it harder and compounds the acid, making it harder for the body to eliminate waste.
Eating our alkaline based foods will help the body to remove and neutralize acidic waste products. Most foods we consume are acidic. Meats, dairy products, sugar and starches are enemies of the human body. It’s important to distinguish the difference between food and synthetics. Alot of our foods are either hybrid or genetically modified which in turn makes them unnatural and acidic.
White-brown rice, carrots, corn, potatoes, garlic, beans, soy, wheat, barley are some to name a few. It goes without saying that alcohol, drugs, Pharmaceutical drug , additives, sweeteners and caffeine are acidic and should be avoided as much as possible.
To keep the body alkaline we must supply the body with alkalinity from an outside source. Our alkaline foods will provide an adequate amount of alkalinity in the diet to do this. However, if the body doesn’t take its alkalinity from its diet, it will extract alkaline from its organs, tissue and bones to neutralize the acid. This causes the body to become acidic and thus diseased.
THE BODY'S PH
Water is the most abundant compound in the human body, comprising 70% of the body. The body therefore contains a wide range of solutions. Ph (potential of hydrogen) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The ph of any solution is the measure of its hydrogen-ion concentration. The ratio between positively charged ions (acid forming) and negatively charged ions (alkaline forming). The lower the ph reading, the more acidic and oxygen deprived the fluid is. The higher the ph reading, the more alkaline and rich in oxygen the fluid is. The ph range is from 0-14 with 7.0 being neutral. Anything above 7.0 is alkaline, anything below 7.0 is considered acidic.
Human blood ph should be slightly alkaline (7.35- 7.45) below or above this range means symptoms and disease. If blood ph moves below 6.8 or above 7.8 cells stop functioning and the body dies. The body therefore continually strives to balance ph. When this balance is compromised many problems can occur.
An imbalanced diet high in acidic producing foods such as animal protein, sugar, caffeine and processed foods puts pressure on the body’s regulating systems to maintain ph neutrality. The extra buffering required can deplete the body of alkaline minerals such as sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium, making the person prone to chronic and degenerative diseases. Minerals are borrowed from vital organs and bones to neutralize the acid and remove it from the body. Because of this strain, the body can suffer severe and prolonged damage causing a condition that may go undetected for years
HEALTH PROBLEMS CAUSED BY ACIDOSIS
Research shows that unless the body’s PH level is slightly alkaline it cannot heal itself, so no matter what means you choose to take care of your health, it won’t be effective until the PH level is balanced. If your body’s PH is not balanced for example, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins and minerals. Your body PH affects everything.
Acidosis will decrease the body’s ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells. Decrease its ability to repair damaged cells, decrease its ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumours cells thrive and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness.
An acidic PH can occur from an acid forming diet, Emotional stress, toxic overload and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to compensate for acidic PH by using alkaline minerals. If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells will occur
Acidosis can cause health problems such as:
Thoughts and views
As long as you are still breathing, it is possible to beat cancer! The world in which we live in today has lead to our body’s immune systems being overworked and weakened by the increased exposure to toxins, pesticides, viruses etc. This unhealthy environment has compromised our body’s defences resulting in cancer cells ability to thrive. Cancer is a simple disease; it is a mutation of cells. When the cells multiply faster than the body can get rid of them, our health is seriously threatened.
Many current cancer “treatments” depend on weakening the body and its immune system. For me, this is a negative approach to healing the body of disease. The human body is designed to heal itself, if we cut our finger our body immediately responds by clotting the flow of blood to close the wound, fighting the bacteria and repairing tissue. The healthier the body, the better it will be able to heal itself.
It is much the same with cancer and scientists have proven that by raising the body’s alkalinity and oxygen content, cancer can be eliminated. This simple method is logical and a safe way of returning the body to its original state. Organic food has to be consumed as opposed to toxic processed food and it’s vital that any water drank is totally pure. Regular exercise is vital to increase oxygen levels in the body.
It is important for people to understand that if they can return there body’s back to its original state of alkalinity and maintain it, disease will not manifest. If anybody is unfortunate to have cancer or any other degenerative disease, maintain your ease, learn to relax and be mentally strong. Fight with all you have and remember. No cutting, No burning, No nuking, No drugs.
Oxygen and cancer
Oxygen, or lack of it, plays a massive part in learning about the underlying cause of all cancers.
A scientist named Otto Warburg won two Nobel prizes fifty years ago for his work on proving that cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen respiration in cells. He stated in the ‘prime cause and prevention of cancer’ that “The cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements. Cancer, above all other diseases has countless secondary causes, but, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause.
Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.
If cell structures are studied in a laboratory, you would discover that if you wanted cells to mutate, the oxygen levels would be turned down and to stop the cells mutating, the oxygen turned back up!
It is impossible for cancer to exist in an alkaline oxygen rich environment. All people have the right to know the truth and the basics for human life.
Cancer also needs an acidic environment to grow and does not survive well in an alkaline body, so change your internal environment P H. Part of this can be achieved by a high alkaline diet.
The colon is a very important organ that must be cleansed and detoxified before health can truly be restored. The colon cannot, however, be the only organ to be cleansed (as some individuals have experienced with colon detoxification products), because this leaves the other organs in a toxic and severe nutritional deficient and imbalanced state resulting in ill health and harm persists. Therefore, it is at the cellular level that the individual cells must be cleansed. The intracellular structure of each cell must be purged before rebuilding, rejuvenation, and regeneration will take place. The primary organs of elimination are listed and described below:
The colon is the sewer system of the body where most of the toxic wastes go for elimination. It is a tube approximately 6 feet in length and about 2-3 inches wide. Its walls can stretch up to 5 times its original size with impacted faecal matter, which happens to people with extended midsections. It can also hold more than 30 gallons of fluid. The colon is where your body absorbs water, synthesises some vitamins, and provides the body’s first line of defence by billions of ‘beneficial” bacteria commonly known as “healthy flora” or probiotics. These organisms help maintain a healthful intestinal environment and are critical to digestive and elimination processes.
Within the colon, poisons are created every day by the effects of improper elimination (fermentation & putrification). Once efficient bowel elimination (2-3x a day) is impaired, toxins will accumulate and be absorbed into the bloodstream. Once this is happens, these physiological toxins can circulate throughout the body and hinder cellular, organ and system function, accumulating in tissue over time, eventually manifesting in disease of some form or another.
Toxins being leached into the blood stream create a stress load for the liver, kidneys, lungs, lymphatic system and skin. Building or restoring health in any form must begin with cleansing and restoring efficient bowel function.
This is the largest internal gland of the body and one of its most complex organs, said to be the only one capable of regenerating itself if even 80% of it were removed. More than 500 of its functions have been identified. Among its major functions are the production of bile to support digestion; the secretion of glucose, proteins, vitamins, fats, and most of the compounds of the body; the processing of haemoglobin for vital use of its iron content; the conversion of poisonous ammonia to urea; processing excess estrogens in the body, and is the main chemical plant that detoxifies the body’s fluids by altering the composition of toxic substances. The liver’s hepatic cells also detoxify numerous ingested substances like alcohol, other toxins and various poisons produced within the intestines. The liver is constantly working to detoxify the body of harmful toxins.
The liver is the first detoxifying organ of the body to take up the overload effects of poor digestion and bowel elimination. Over time, coupled with poor dietary choices and eating habits, the liver can become congested, impairing the efficiency of many of its life- preserving functions.
Alkaline herbs will also cleanse and support liver function, as its tissues can become laden with pollution from continuous detoxification. It is critically important to the restoration and maintenance of good health and life that the liver continues to function well.
The kidneys are two powerful fist-size organs that work nonstop, 24 hours a day, never resting, until the day we die. Their critical function is filtering the blood, removing urea, toxic chemicals, salts and excess minerals, and other soluble waste from the blood plasma through a complex filtration network, out through the urine.
All the blood passes through the kidneys about 20 times every hour. That’s about 1183 litres a day. The kidneys also maintain the critical water-electrolyte balance essential for efficient metabolic functioning. When bowel elimination is impaired, and/or when digestive enzyme activity is low as it is with many people, undigested proteins enter the bloodstream, creating additional elimination responsibilities for the kidneys.
Over time the tissues of the kidneys can become congested with bio accumulation and impair their function, contributing to a plethora of ill conditions. Maintaining efficient kidney function is critical to restoring and maintaining good health. Alkaline foods cleanse and support kidney function.
Iron is needed to produce hemoglobin, the substance that helps red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body directly targeting the brain. Iron nourishes the blood and the cells and is a major component of the immune system. As iron phosphate is derived from the plant and herb kingdom, it assimilates perfectly in the body. This is because it contains carbon-hydrogen and oxygen. These three elements are massively important because this is the chemistry of life! So when you ingest organic iron you are automatically ingesting many nutrients necessary for the reversal and elimination of ill health.
It is vital for the blood to consume plants and herbs which are carbon-hydrogen-oxygen based. Revolutions foods are giving our customers this opportunity by sourcing herbs from worldwide to offer the food provided for by nature. Organic plant iron is the key mineral in aiding the body’s blood.
The lungs are a remarkable pair of highly elastic life-sustaining organs that facilitate the processing of the air we breathe to oxygenate the tissues throughout the body, without which, we could not live.
The lungs also remove loads of toxic (acidic) wastes from metabolic functions, and other toxic waste from the blood, chemically bound to the carbon dioxide in its remarkable exchange process. Like the liver and kidneys, when excessive internal pollution exist creating toxic loads on the body’s channels of elimination, the tissues of the lungs can become congested with acidic bio accumulation and over time, impair their efficient function.
THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM
The lymphatic system is a vast, complex network of capillaries, thin vessels, valves, ducts, node and organs (tonsils, appendix, thymus, spleen) that help to cleanse, protect and maintain the internal fluid environment of the entire body, by filtering, producing and conveying lymph. The lymphatic network also transports fats, proteins, and other substances to the blood system, and restores 60% of the fluid that filters out of the blood capillaries during normal metabolism.
While the network of blood vessels have the heart to continuously pump the blood, the lymphatic network of vessels is propelled by various body dynamics such as respiration pressure changes, muscular contractions, and movements of organs surrounding the lymphatic vessels that combine to pump the lymph through the lymphatic system.
Toxic substances filtered from the blood by the lymphatic system are removed through the capillaries that abound the dermis of the skin, forming a continuous network over the entire body. They are expelled through the sweat and some are also dumped back into the intestines for removal.
Whilst taking alkaline herbs it is essential that consistent exercise be maintained to create the body dynamics and sweating necessary for the lymphatic system to function optimally for sustained health.
The skin is a tough, supple, cutaneous membrane that covers the entire surface of the body. It is composed of a thick layer of connective tissue called the dermis and an epidermis of five layers of cells. The skin replaces itself every 28 days as the cells of each layer migrate upward as they mature.
The skin expels waste through the dermis brought by the lymphatic capillaries when the skin is cooling the body due to a rise in temperature, such as in exercise. The skin is the largest organ to expel toxins from the body, and is also the largest one to ingest toxins from the environment, through hair treatments, deodorants, and other cosmetic preparations. Be mindful of things you put on your skin.
