  • Intro Self and learn names,Thank you for the opportunity to visit and talk about a few health principles.
  • Alkaline in the blood by design and acid in function because the functions create acid that must be cleaned out.
  • These four things are interrelated. Correcting one builds another. Loosing ground on one also drags down another area. For example toxicity in the body in the form of heavy metal also makes us more acidic and hurts our ability to process food to gain nutrition.
  • The Standard American Diet is SADly highly acid
  • The chemicals that were used for fertilizers and pesticides and herbicids (and in some cases still are) leached the alkaline minerals from the soils. Our mass grown foods today have a fraction of the healthy minerals that were present in the soils 100 years ago. Not all of that is because of over farming. Much of it is due to the chemicals that were dumped on the soils and them leaching the good minerals out of the soil and washing them into the rivers and down to the oceans. We must remineralize the farm lands if we are to fully heal from this. We must also add extra colloidal trace minerals to our diet to make up the difference.
  • We also need to talk about pH. Our body requires a balanced pH. The blood must be slightly alkaline for us to remain healthy.We measure the scale in potential for hydrogen. But you know what let’s not take time understanding the scale and how the math figures because we aren’t going to use that today. We do need to understand that our blood must be maintained at a very tight 7.365 and we also need to understand what happens when we get out of balance and how to get back in balance.
  • Now to teach the principle of how our body functions and what we can drink to support the healthy functioning of our body lets look at some common drinks. Before anyone says why is blood in this list. No I’m not a vampire and not suggesting that any of you are. I’m simply showing where in the scale of Acid and Alkaline our body must remain to stay alive. If we want to support good health we then drink liquids that are more alkaline and we avoid those things that are acid and damage the body. The principle is this. Our body must be alkaline to be healthy and healing. All of the body systems use alkaline minerals to balance the result of processes that produce acid. What is the acid produced from exercise – lactic acid We breath out carbonic acid or carbon dioxide so that the body doesn’t have to deal with carbonic acid. By adding alkaline drinks in the body with increase our energy. If acidic drinks are taken in then we add more work on the kidneys and the whole body lacks energy.Don’t get too excited about 7.0 neutral tap water they are allowed to use lime to bring it to neutral.
  • Oxidation reduction potential (ORP), also known as redox, is the measurement of a solution's oxidizing and reducing activity.  Whenever one material is oxidized, another material is reduced.Rust is an example of an oxidation/reduction reaction. Oxygen combines with iron to form iron oxides. In this process, the iron is oxidized and, once again, the oxygen has been reduced.Reducing is not as easy to understand. Scientifically, it means giving away, or donating, so if a liquid has 'reducing potential' it has the ability to donate energy to the body.The ORP meter actually measures the electrical charge of the water and if it reads above zero, it's oxidizing (acidic and an ionic 'robber'). If the voltage is negative it's reducing (alkaline and a giver)! Now we can begin to see that we aren't simply talking about choosing alkaline foods and drinks. We are choosing ways to 'alkalize' and 'energize', to add to our negative ion energy store and to neutralize the acidic, positively charged atoms in our bodies. Now we are getting very, very fundamental, and we are using water to carry this energy into the body. Why would this be so wonderful for you? Take a quick look at blood. As we know, blood has lots of water in it, and so it also has a ratio of the two types of water, the acidic and the alkaline as we discussed. When there are more alkaline ions, in the form of OH-, there is more oxygen in the blood, available to us as instantaneous fuel for life. In fact, if your blood is just a tiny bit more alkaline (from 7.3 to 7.45), it will be holding around 2/3 more oxygen!All alkaline foods will work to some degree, but it just makes so much sense that if you are 70% water, and if water is everywhere in your body, then - to my mind - water in an antioxidant form is a far more efficient and economical mode of countering free radicals than food or pills.
  • Test the saliva and the urine first thing in the morning. Normal range for saliva is 7 to 7.5 normal range for urine is less than 7
  • Chew Chew ChewHeart burn may be a result of not enough hydrocloric acid in the stomach or too much ‘critters eaten’The small intestines maintains the alkaline level with pancreatic secretions which are normally 8.0-8.3 strongly alkaline.Protien and Starch
  • The most critical systems on an airplane only have one or maybe two backup systems. But maintaining the acid alkaline balance is so critical that there are 7 buffer systems to ensure that it stays at a critical level. We might benefit by helping it stay in that very narrow range. Dr Robert Young states that it cannot vary from 7.365 by even one tenth of a percent without compromising our health.
  • Blood sugar notes – Pancreatic cells are directly poisoned and destroyed by the mycotoxin alloxan. Toxification of the liver interferes directly with glucose production. (P32, The pH Miracle)
  • The Raw Truth About Milk: William Campbell Douglass II, MD will tell you that the casein in milk called caseomorphine is 12 times that of mothers milk and is highly addictive. “The peptide breakdown is not complete, so that the gluten and casein peptides turn into gluteomorphine and caseomorphine.” www.dietetics.co.uk/article_additives_food_moods_behaviour.aspYou may enjoy looking at the website pecanbread.com for suggestions on a gluten free casein free diet.
  • Notice that most common drinks are acidic. Drink pure water and herbal teas to increase health
  • Notice that almost all fresh vegetables are alkaline but that canned vegetables are acid. Living things are alkaline and dead things are acid. That is the easy principle for health to use.
  • Opium in Head / Iceburg Lettuce with no nutrition. Eat other greensOur Acid Alkaline LunchCoconut oil and palm oil are the only alkaline oils and are good for cooking
  • I’d like you to note the few things that are most alkaline, Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, Kamat are among those.
  • (the pH Miracle p 93) 1 gallon is 128 oz and that is the right amount for someone about mid sized or 150 pounds. I’ve seen a formula from doctors that says we must drink between ½ oz to 1 oz per pound of body weight each day depending on our activity level. Outside exercising or working in the sun requires more.How do we get water between 9-11 pH. We live in Lourdes France or some other mountain community with a stream at our back door that is pouring out of the side of the mountain. Or we put the wonderful technology in our own home that takes the tap water and converts it to that pH. Wait what is the pH of the tap water right now. Rule of Thumb is from pH Miracle for Weight Loss page 69
  • “One study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association showed … a 50 percent decrease in the risk of bladder cancer in people who drank 2.5 quarts of water daily and a 79 percent drop in the risk of breast cancer.” cited in The pH Miracle for Weight Loss, Young and Young pg 55

    28. 28. A Positive Outlook  "Emotions such as happiness optimism, and joy boost the immune system, according to research … A long term study of older men, … who had high levels of optimism had a dramatically reduced risk of angina, non-fatal, heart attack, and death from coronary heart disease compared to men who were more pessimistic....” The Ultimate pH Solution, p1308/15/2012 28
    29. 29. Acupuncture and Acupressure, • “Immune-boosting properties would certainly play a role in helping your body deal with the impact of pH imbalance. Acupuncture also helps the body get rid of toxic buildup in the joints, organs and tissues that may be disrupting the proper flow of energy. Equally important, acupuncture is an excellent stress-reduction tool.” The Ultimate pH Solution, p.1268/15/2012 29
    30. 30. Balancemost important thing you will learn … is to• “The single pH With Water get your body plenty of pure water. And not just any water—alkalizing water. Ideally, you’ll get at least four liters (about one gallon) of good water every day.” “Getting liberal amounts of alkaline water (having a pH between 9 and 11) neutralizes stored acid waste and, if consumed ever day… gently removes acids from the body” (Young p93)• Rule of Thumb – 1 liter of electron rich alkaline water every day for each 40 pounds of body weight. For someone 160 pounds that’s 4 liters.8/15/2012 30
    31. 31. Dr. Susan Lark M.D. University lecturer and author of “The Chemistry Of Success” • "Drinking four to six glasses of alkaline water a day will help to neutralize over acidity and over time will help to restore your buffering ability. Alkaline water should be used when conditions of over acidity develop, such as cold, flu or bronchitis. Like vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene, alkaline water acts as an antioxidant because of its excess supply of free electrons. This can help the body against the development of heart disease, strokes, immune dysfunctions, and other common ailments."8/15/2012 31
    32. 32. Alternative Healing Systems, • "After careful review of successful alternative healing systems, I came to a startling conclusion: All of them produce alkaline-forming reactions in the body. In my opinion this is why they work so well and why they have survived..." He then lists many of the alternative healing modalities. Alkalize or Die, p.1128/15/2012 32
    33. 33. Deep Breathing • "The lungs take carbon dioxide out from carbonic acids making the blood more alkaline. The blood pH is the highest when it comes out of the lungs.“ Reverse Aging, p.418/15/2012 33
