Why We Need to Alkalize our Bodies for Health

| February 16, 2009 | 0 Comments

The food that we eat burns with oxygen in our cells to produce energy. After burning, the ash becomes acid wastes and the cells dump them into the bloodstream. If you could get rid of 99.9% of the garbage in your home everyday, wouldn’t that .01% accumulate into lot of garbage over the years? The same analogy is true as our body tries its best to get rid of these wastes through urine, breath and perspiration.

Unfortunately, we cannot get rid of all the wastes that we produce and what is left over must be stored somewhere in our body. The body plays a clever trick to convert these acid wastes into solid wastes, which is the beginning of “Acidosis”, a state that the body becomes slightly acidic rather than alkaline. Read on to learn how this acid build up affects most adult degenerative diseases.

The body begins to store these solid wastes in many places, around the organs and under the skin as fat. Many believe that fat production may be a result of acid waste demands for a storage medium. Fewer toxins in your body will require less space for storage, hence reducing the waist size.

Acidity and Aging

Examples of solidified acidic wastes in our body are cholesterol, fatty acid, uric acid, kidney stones, urates, sulfates and phosphates. The accumulation of these non-disposed solid wastes is the process of aging. Cholesterol and fatty acids are the result of eating too much pasta and bread and not exercising enough. Uric acid and ammonia come from all kinds of meat. Phosphoric acid comes from grains such as rice and drinks such as cola, Sulphuric acid comes from egg yolks. In Western nations, antacids are a billion dollar business because so many people think the problem is an over acidic stomach, when in fact it is an over acidic body.

Acidity and Osteoporosis

Sulfuric and phosphoric acid are both poisonous acids. They must have alkaline minerals to neutralize them in order to become benign. In the absence of enough alkaline minerals from our diet, the body has no choice but to rob calcium and phosphorous from our body minerals to convert these poisonous acids into non-poisonous acid salts; sulfate, phosphates, and urates. Most of our calcium and phosphorous stores are in our bones

Acidity and Diabetes

Depending upon where the body stores acid wastes, blood circulation around that area gets poor and eventually a vital organ is unable to receive enough blood supply and becomes dysfunctional. Many adult degenerative diseases are the result of poor circulation. Diabetes is an adult degenerative disease which is caused by acid accumulation around the pancreas.

Acidity and Cancer

Malignant cancer cells are acidic, while healthy cells are alkaline. Normal cells cannot survive near areas of waste acid accumulation. Mutation of healthy alkaline cells into acidic cells that thrive in an acidic environment is the beginning of cancerous growths. Experienced oncologists increase the alkalinity of their patients before administering treatment, often by injecting sodium bicarbonate, an alkaline buffer.

Acidity and Heart Disease

Acidic wastes accumulate outside and inside the blood vessels. Waste particles inside the blood vessels can be very dangerous, leading to clogging of capillaries servicing critical sections of the brain. Our body attempts to paste these waste particles onto artery walls to prevent them from floating around and creating terminal damage. This pasting action eventually leads to excess flow restriction and potential heart attacks..

ALKALINE NEUTRALIZES ACID

The scientific truth that alkaline neutralizes acid is a basic natural phenomenon that requires no ‘double blind testing’. Alkaline water has no nutritional or medicinal value to cure disease; all it does is neutralize the acidic wastes in the human body and liquefy them for elimination by the kidneys. It is recommended to drink 8 glasses of alkaline water daily to detoxify and maintain good health.

Depending on the individual, we all store acidic wastes differently. Disease symptoms manifest depending upon where the wastes accumulate. For this reason, drinking alkaline water gives different results for different people. Some people lose weight, some are relieved of gout, some lower blood pressure, and some reverse other long-term conditions. When we understand the fact that all adult degenerative diseases are caused by the accumulation of acidic wastes, it is no mystery that drinking alkaline water improves our health.
