From the moment we wake up, to the time we are about sleep, our body is exposed to acidity. That cup of coffee, the air you breathe, the stress
from work followed by a bottle of beer. Your environment and lifestyle place a critical role to your overall health.
The Issue of pH
"When our pH level is unbalanced, almost any area of our bodies can be negatively affected creating results such as cancer, heart disease, obesity, weight problems, allergies, fatigue and premature aging as well as problems with our nervous system, cardiovascular system and muscles.
Since, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, we can also see how, eventually, every system of the body might be affected by the accumulation of excessive acids and the inability of the body to continue to compensate.
As more and more acid is accumulated, storage capacity is diminished, and the body’s ability to manage the accumulation falters, the body slowly begins to suffocate in its own acid waste. By this time cellular metabolism has been severely compromised, enzymatic reactions fail to occur, nutrients are no longer available for repair and regeneration, wastes can no longer be removed.
In light of the cumulative nature of this phenomenon, it is easy to understand why a chronically acidic biological environment is considered to be the seedbed of most, if not all, degenerative diseases."
In reviewing the current medical literature, it is becoming increasingly evident that an acid pH imbalance is destructive to critical biochemical functions. There is evidence in the literature that this chronic imbalance has been associated with corrosion of the vascular system, while it accelerates free radical damage and contributes to premature aging. There is evidence linking it to weight gain, diabetes and obesity.
Obviously this environment inhibits metabolism of stored energy reserves while causing cholesterol plaque to form. In addition, it can disrupt blood pressure, as well as, lipid and fatty acid metabolism.
Finally, it has been associated with the inhibition of cellular regeneration, DNA & RNA synthesis, oxygenation of the tissues, and alteration of electrolyte activity. It has been linked directly to cardiovascular disease, arteriosclerosis, heart attacks, stroke, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. It has also been demonstrated to be a contributing (if not causal) factor to the formation of all cancers.
Meanwhile, it has been biochemically linked with diabetes, insulin sensitivity, obesity, neurological diseases (such as MS, MD, ALS, and Parkinson’s).
It plays an obvious role in liver and kidney disease while contributing to dementia, senility, Alzheimer’s, immune deficiencies, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, tooth loss, hair loss, hormonal imbalances, and prostate problems.
Clinically, I have seen this imbalance as the causal factor in chronic and progressive idiopathic psoriasis, female hair loss, hyper activity disorders, depression, intestinal disorders, ulcers, kidney stones, infantile colic, herpes, fibroids, and loss of pigmentation.
Having had the benefit of utilising Quantum Fluid Analysis over the last several years in the care and management of hundreds of patients, I am personally of the opinion that alterations in all of the biological terrain parameters are predicated upon a progressive deviation in the acid/alkaline balance of the body.
The process of restoring pH balance begins with proper diet and nutrition. This includes eating alkalizing foods, such as vegetables, low sugar fruits, etc., super hydration with alkaline water, and proper supplementation.
When a cell lives in an unhealthy Biological Matrix environment that lacks the proper pH it can become unhealthy and fail to thrive. Too few as well as too many nutrients and substances in the Matrix can interfere with the cell’s abilities to maintain the critical balance of elements that it needs to survive.
With prolonged exposure to these stressful conditions, the probability that the cell will lose its vitality and develop illness or disease increases significantly. With a lowered vitality and resistance, the cell also becomes more susceptible to the effects of microbes and organisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, yeast and fungus.
