Cholesterol Lowering Drugs Cause Heart Attacks, Strokes and Diabetes!

The higher your cholesterol the lower your risk for heart attack or stroke when you are living and eating the standard acid lifestyle and diet (SAD). And, the lower your cholesterol the higher your risk for a heart attack or stroke. (1)

The first graph shows the world famous Lancet published Framingham Study after ten years and the effects of high cholesterol. The second graph shows the study after twenty years. The interesting thing is everyone knows about the first ten years but few people, including doctors have been informed about the Framingham study after twenty years. The Framingham study is the largest and longest reliable study on the effects of chloesterol on the heart and vascular system.(1)
Ten years later the study NOW indicates that high cholesterol is NOT a risk for heart attack or stroke. When cholesterol exceeded 300 mg/dl the risk of heart disease was significantly reduced. Eighty percent of people who developed heart disease had cholesterol less than 200 mg/dl.(1)
Dr Robert O. Young’s has stated in his research that all heart attacks and strokes are caused by acids from an acidic diet and metabolic acids and NOT high cholesterol. He has suggested that cholesterol, especially low density lipoproteins are created by the body to buffer and protect the blood, organs and tissues from dietary and metaobolic acids. He states the best way to protect the heart and the vascular system is to maintain the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet as outline in his book, The pH Miracle Revised and Updated.(2)
Just recently the Food and Drug Administration issued new safety warnings about a popular class of drugs used to control and lower cholesterol levels. The FDA says the drugs, known as statins, can cause several side effects, including cognitive problems such as memory lapses and confusion. But the agency is stressing that the side effects appear to be rare and not serious. It is Dr Robert O Young’s research that suggests taking any drug, like statin drugs that lowers LDL cholesterol without removing acidic lifestyle and dietary choices is a risk for heart attack, stroke and other dis-eases like diabetes. Dr Young has lowered cholesterol sucessfully in all cases of hyperchlolesterolemia without drugs by just changing the diet and lifestyle to an alkaline pH Miracle lifestyle and diet that restores the alkaline design of the body.(2)
One of Dr. Young’s research clients Maren Hale was diagnosed with familial hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglycerides with LDL’s over 400 mg/dl and triglycerides over 200 mg/dl. She was also overweight. Over a period of four years Maren lost over 70 pounds and lowered her cholesterol and triglycerides to healthy normal ranges on the pH Miracle Lifesyle and Diet. Maren and her family and extended family have been a research study of the University of Utah for familial hypercholesterolemia for over 40 years. Maren was the first of all family members to lower her cholesterol and triglycerides to normal ranges due to her commitment to living a pH Miracle Lifesyle and Diet.(2)

The following is an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal:

The FDA raised safety concerns about the popular class of cholesterol-fighting drugs. The drugs have been taken for years by tens of millions of people and include brand names such as Lipitor and Crestor. Ron Winslow reports on the News Hub. Photo: Getty Images.

The Food and Drug Administration warned that patients taking cholesterol-fighting statins face a small increase in the risk of higher blood-sugar levels and of being diagnosed with diabetes, raising concerns about one of the country’s most widely prescribed groups of drugs.

The federal safety agency said Tuesday it plans to require drug makers to add the diabetes-risk language to the “warnings and precautions” section of the labels on statin drugs.

Statins include top-selling brand names such as Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor and a dozen or so other branded and generic versions under various names. The drugs are prescribed to more than 20 million Americans a year, at a cost of more than $14 billion in 2011, according to the research firm IMS Health.

The warning isn’t expected to prompt doctors to stop prescribing statins for patients with multiple risk factors for heart attack. Cardiologists said for many patients, the benefits of statins still outweigh these risks.

The diabetes issue is “real” but “not a huge effect,” said Robert Califf, vice chancellor for clinical research and a cardiologist at Duke University Medical Center. “Informing people is a good thing, but for the vast majority of people who really need to be on a statin, this shouldn’t change what they do.”

But some physicians cautioned that the risk wasn’t insignificant and that patients at lower risk for heart problems might want to reassess whether they should remain on statins.

“The diabetes issue is a really big deal. We’re overcooking the statin use,” said Eric J. Topol, a prominent cardiologist and chief academic officer of Scripps Health in LaJolla, Calif.

In addition, the FDA said labels for statin drugs now will contain information about patients experiencing memory loss and confusion, though this side effect was classified as an “adverse reaction” rather than one of the warnings and precautions, a more serious category.

Amy Egan, the FDA’s deputy director for safety of metabolic and endocrinological products, said “these cognitive changes can be quite dramatic” and “sustained” but that they disappear when statin therapy is stopped. Dr. Egan said the agency cannot identify a specific drug or age group of people who might be prone to such cases. She said patients should notify their doctors if these symptoms occur.

Bloomberg News

Cholesterol drugs Lipitor and Zocor are arranged on a counter of a Cambridge, Massachusetts pharmacy in 2006.

The FDA made new labeling recommendations for one specific statin, Mevacor, generically called lovastatin. It said that some medicines like protease drugs used to treat AIDS and drugs for bacterial and fungal infections shouldn’t be taken with Mevacor because of interactions that may lead to muscle injury.

At the same time, the FDA announced that drug makers could remove a label warning that liver enzymes need to be monitored during statin therapy. It cited the fact that “serious liver injury with statins is rare and unpredictable” and that periodic monitoring “does not appear to be effective in detecting or preventing this rare side effect.”

AstraZeneca PLC, which makes Crestor, the only major statin still sold exclusively as a brand-name drug, said in a statement that “the cognitive issues are generally nonserious and reversible upon discontinuation” of a statin. It said reports about increased blood sugar were already included on Crestor labels.

In addition to the pure statins, products that contain statins include Advicor, Simcor and Vytorin. Merck & Co., which makes Zocor and Vytorin, said information for those drugs was “updated” in October in a way that reflects the contents of the FDA’s Tuesday safety advisory. It revised labeling for Mevacor more recently.

The FDA’s action follows analyses of large numbers of statin studies in recent years. In one, published in the Lancet in 2010, researchers looked at 13 studies including 91,140 patients. The researchers concluded that statin therapy “is associated with a slightly increased risk of development of [Type 2] diabetes, but the risk is low both in absolute terms and when compared to the reduction in coronary events.”

Cardiologists differed on how to weigh the findings, especially for the millions of people given the drugs for the prevention of a first heart attack or stroke.

Steven E. Nissen, chairman of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic, said, “There is no question that statins slightly increase the risk of a diabetes diagnosis and of slightly higher blood sugar, but I think this has no impact on the risk-benefit assessment. I know I can lower the [relative] risk of death, stroke and heart attack by about 30%” in patients at high risk of such cardiovascular events.

Dr. Topol said research suggests that for every 200 people who take a statin, 1 will develop diabetes. By comparison, 1 to 2 out of 100 patients at risk for a heart attack will avoid one, he said, adding, “That’s a very narrow margin of benefit,” he said.

Rita Redberg, a cardiologist at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center, stressed the long-term concerns about diabetes. “We know that diabetes is a significant risk factor for heart disease,” Dr. Redberg said. She said the statin-diabetes link “raises the concern that over time the diabetes risk will outweigh the cholesterol-lowering benefit on overall risk of cardiovascular disease.”

Fishy Diet Does Not Promote Heart Health

Diets high in fish do not promote heart heath and may increase risk of heart disease, according to a study in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology.
Researchers conducted a review of ten different studies analyzing the diets and health of Eskimos and Inuits in Greenland and North America. They found that Eskimos in Greenland have similar rates of heart disease, an overall mortality rate twice as high, and a life expectancy 10 years shorter, compared with non-Eskimos. Inuits in North America have similar if not higher rates of heart disease, compared with non-native populations.
The authors conclude that an “Eskimo diet” has been misconstrued as heart healthy in the past and that such a high-fat diet is better labeled dangerous.

Why You Should Listen To Your Heart

In the 1930s, Dr. Walter Cannon of the Harvard Medical School showed that the heart responds to external nerves and hormones to help with a fight or flight response to keep us healthy.

New research is showing that the heart controls the brain much more than previously thought.

1. Some researchers refer to the heart as the “little brain.”
There are 40,000 sensory neurons relaying information to the brain from the heart, leading researchers to call the heart the “little brain” and to coin the field as neurocardiology.

2. The heart communicates to the brain and the body.
It does so in four ways, via:

• nervous system connections
• hormones produced in the heart itself
• biomechanical information via blood pressure waves
• energetic information from the strong electrical and electromagnetic fields.

The fact that the heart produces hormones released into the blood stream affecting all of the body was first demonstrated 30 years ago and has led to tests routinely performed in hospitals across the country.

3. There is more information sent from the heart to the brain on a daily basis via these four means of communications than vice versa.
Indeed, the neurons within the heart enable the heart to learn, remember, and make decisions independent of the brain’s cerebral cortex.

4. The heart emits more electrical activity than the brain.
The heart emits an electrical field 60 times greater in amplitude than the activity in the brain and an electromagnetic field 5,000 times stronger that of the brain.

5. The electromagnetic field of the heart is incredibly strong.
It not only can be measured anywhere on the body (using an EKG with electrodes on the ankles and wrists) but also for several feet outside the body, too.

6. Activity in one person’s heart can be measured in the brain waves of another person.
The electromagnetic field of two individuals (human or pet and human), touching or within a few feet of each other, can interact so that energy activity in the heart of one individual is measured in the brain waves of the other. The act of touch for healing therapies can be postulated to be due to this method of communication.

7. The electrical activity of the heart and the brain can be guided into a synchronous electrical rhythm easily measured and displayed by simply focusing on positive and loving emotions emanating from the heart.

This state of organ “coherence” is associated with improved higher level functioning, lower blood pressure and cortisol levels, and improved immune system function.

Exciting scientific findings are providing a dramatically different understanding of the heart and its relationship with the brain and the human body. The rich neurologic and endocrine structure of the heart makes it possible to “train” the heart from acting in a frenzied and disordered manner during stress and anger to working in an optimal manner from lessons of peace, love, and harmony.


Acids Are The Cause of ALL Sickness and Disease Including Heart Disease, Cancer and Diabetes!


Dr. Robert O. Young’s thirty-plus years of research continues to be validated by other scientists and doctors.  The foundational hypothesis of Dr. Young’s research is 1) The human body is alkaline by design, and 2) All functions of the human body produce acidic waste products and if NOT eliminated through the four channels (urination, defecation, perspiration and respiration) of elimination will result in sickness and disease.  Dr. Young stated over thirty years ago that,  “there is only one sickness, one diseease and one health.  The one sickness and one disease is the over-acidificaiton of the blood and then tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating and thinking.  The one health is to manage and maintain the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet.”

Metabolic acidosis causes cancer, diabetes and premature death

Thursday, November 28, 2013 by: Jonathan Landsman
Tags: metabolic acidosiscauses of cancerSusan Smith Jones

(NaturalNews) Cancer, chronic fatigue, diabetes, osteoporosis plus many other degenerative diseases are caused by ‘metabolic acidosis.’ Is your body pH slightly alkaline? If not, this is a serious health condition – that needs to be addressed immediately.

Shocking ‘sick care’ statistics! The top 10 reasons for seeing a doctor include: skin disorders like acne; joint problems; back aches; cholesterol issues; upper respiratory conditions; depression; neurological disorders; hypertension; headaches and diabetes. Do you see a common thread to all these health problems?

Most health-related problems are directly connected to being too acidic. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Susan Smith Jones, Ph.D. will talk about how to prevent metabolic acidosis and, literally, eliminate the need for (most) doctor appointments.

A wake up call for conventional medicine – most health problems have a simple solution

The typical American diet involves too much animal protein, processed grains – in the form of bread and pasta plus lots of sugar and artificial ingredients. This toxic sludge places stress on the immune system and kidney function. Eventually, as the body becomes more and more acidic, we experience disease and premature death.

It’s such a shame – when you think about it – how easy it would be for doctors to tell people the real cause of their dis-ease. Simply put, eating too many acid forming foods will lower the pH of your bodily fluids and cause a host of serious health problems like de-mineralization of the bones. But I guess that advice would piss off the pharmaceutical industry which profits greatly from the ignorance of the general public – and medical profession.

Does your family physician talk about the value of ‘pH balancing’ and emotional wellbeing?

Ideally, the pH of our blood should be around 7.365 – 7.40 or slightly alkaline. This balance is so delicate – believe it or not – when the pH drops below 7.0, you could slip into a coma and die. If your pH is too high, you could experience a life-threatening seizure. Along with a poor diet, previously mentioned, emotional stress and toxicity issues (i.e. heavy metal poisoning) can cause pH imbalances which decrease cellular energy and increase the risk of disease.

But, when it comes to the ‘right’ diet, it can be a bit confusing for the general public. For example, citrus fruits – which are acid by nature – actually have an ‘alkalizing effect’ on the body. In fact, many ‘acidic’ vegetable juices – like, carrot/apple juice – are quite alkalizing in its effect. Conversely, most animal meats are alkaline – before consumption – yet cause lots of acidic residue in the digestive process. Interestingly, when it comes to emotions and lifestyle habits, meditation, prayer, peaceful thoughts, kindness and love are alkalizing. And, quite the opposite effect, being overworked, angry, feeling fearful, jealous or ‘stressed out’ can make you too acidic.

From Heartbreak to Hope – Reversing Type I Diabetes with The pH Miracle Alkaline Lifestyle Protocol

Ava’s Story: From Heartbreak to Hope

This mother’s story of hope is so inspiring for anyone with Type I or Type II diabetes. It is a testimony to what a family can do when they venture down this road less travelled. They have experienced the freedom and relief that comes from putting the body in a position of strength for better blood sugar control and long term health following the pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet.
Health-e-Solutuions-Ava-twirlingOur journey with Type 1 diabetes began a little over a year ago. Just like everyone I presume, we were shocked and devastated.  It was the first Saturday of December and all the girls in my family get together for our traditional cookie baking day a few weeks before Christmas.  I was eight months pregnant with our third child, another little girl to keep the tradition going! That morning I left our 2-year-old daughter, Ava, at home with daddy because she wasn’t feeling well.  She was acting very tired, partly because she had been up several times in the night having completely soaked through her diaper and bed sheets, which was unusual.  I remember that she had been drinking so much the previous day, like she couldn’t get enough.  We live in Florida and even in December dehydration can be a concern so I gave her all she wanted.  The next day more of the same.  I knew I would take her in to the pediatrician Monday morning if things didn’t get better.  And they didn’t.  Monday morning Ava was lethargic and fussy and had been up several times in the night – again wetting the bed through.  Although now a stay-at-home mom, my background was in Nursing so I was thinking maybe she had caught some sort of virus, or maybe it was a UTI with those symptoms, and looking back a small voice was saying, ‘rule out diabetes…so you can sleep at night,’ but that was just the nurse in me, and certainly it wasn’t even feasible enough to even say out loud.  But I did ask the doctor to check a blood sugar.
Ava sat beside me on the exam table and the nurse put the drop of blood to the test strip…595 it said.  My world changed in that moment, and so did hers.
I knew full well what this meant for her.  I will never forget that moment of realization.  I couldn’t hold back my tears and despair.  I had actually worked for our doctor before Ava was born, and since then she had become my friend.  She hugged me and just said “I’m so sorry” as I sobbed.  I dealt with my emotions on the 30 minute drive to the children’s hospital.  On December 5th 2011, our precious baby that I carried on my hip – was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
The staff at the hospital is to be praised for their compassion and care – but what a horrible, painful, experience for Ava.  I will say that God’s hand on her was clear.  She was protected and comforted in a way only He could do.  And for me, He was my refuge and strength.  No doubt, I alone, was not capable of bearing what those 5 days brought.
Ava was in DKA [diabetic-ketoacidosis] when we arrived with an A1C of almost 12, and she spent 2 days in the ICU on IV insulin to correct her immediate condition.
A few days of monitoring and diabetic education followed.  The general guidelines we received were to count carbs and cover with insulin, and the recommendations were to get up to 60-65% of calories from carbohydrates – something a diabetic cannot metabolize correctly.  This seemed so wrong?!  Common sense would say that does not seem right.  We were also told there was nothing we could do to really help or improve her condition with diet, etc., or to prevent further progression.  We would realize later that unfortunately the resistance to anything but a routine insulin regimen from those practicing traditional western medicine is ongoing.  They are either simply not educated in anything alternative to insulin therapy, or they have their hands tied and won’t recommend anything that has not been approved or regulated by the FDA – regardless of how much research or results have been reported with other treatments.
We were interested in how to treat the cause of her disease, not just the symptoms.  We also wanted more natural, individualized care.
I spent the next 6 weeks researching alternative treatments, and natural cures but came up with nothing solid. 6 weeks after diagnosis our new baby was born, and unfortunately I didn’t have the time to research as I had been.  Meanwhile our family life was chaotic. Managing Ava’s care was time consuming and mentally challenging. It was grueling work to count every carb and give insulin shots and blood sugar checks to a 2 year old, 4 times a day and even check through the night. We were struggling to keep our sanity. We did immediately tighten up on her already seemingly healthy diet.  We concentrated on fresh, whole foods.  But a 2 year old is affected by every last carb, and every drop of insulin. I was exhausted, frustrated, and my heart was literally aching for my baby girl to be going through this.  The constant management it took to keep her numbers stable was causing our family overwhelming stress.  The rollercoaster of blood sugar ups and downs was unending.  At one point we thought things were pretty stable because when we checked before meals her numbers were pretty good and her A1C had come down to 7.8 after 3 months.  In an effort to tighten up a little more, we started checking 1 hour post prandials just to find that she was much of the time exceeding 200!  We were desperate for better, more natural and healthy control for her.  We knew it was out there.
Several weeks later I was able to dive into researching again and almost immediately this time, I ran across Dan and Sally Roman’s story of their two Type 1 Diabetic boys who were managed with natural treatment plans and did not even require insulin after following Dr. Robert O. Young’s pH Miracle for Diabetes protocol outlined in The pH Miracle for Diabetes.  I was intrigued and it was the first time I felt hope for a better way.  Over the next few days I spent much time on the website, reading the encouraging stories of many T1D kids who were managing their diabetes this way, had better and more consistent results, and had decreased their insulin or no longer needed it by following a regimen of diet and supplementation.  I emailed the Romans my story and got a surprise call from Sally shortly after.  I immediately felt the genuine compassion she had for us and heard such promising information about what they were doing with their boys.
I didn’t want to waste any time so I educated myself through their books and started familiarizing with the diet and food.  Looking back, I recognize how vitally important it was for us to equip ourselves with this information before getting started with this alkaline lifestyle.
We immediately embraced and implemented the pH Miracle lifestyle and within days Ava no longer needed fast acting Humalog with meals!  Within a week she went from needing 4 units of Lantus to 3 units.  Currently she is only requiring 2.5 units of Lantus daily. Her blood sugars started stabilizing even more as time went on.
I cannot explain how wonderful and freeing this felt to see such immediate and significant results!  And it all made so much sense! This lifestyle is strengthening, supporting and healing to her body.  A far cry from “eat whatever you want and just cover it with insulin.”
We have had some bumps in the road along the way, like when she gets sick, or has a stressful week, or just part of the course of the disease.  She sometimes requires a very tiny amount of fast acting Humalog.  But this is not the norm and has been infrequent, and we have also learned about other things that can help naturally.  Now she seems more stable than ever and I can tell her body continues to heal.  That is so exciting! It’s been 14 months from diagnosis and her last A1C was 6.1.  We fully expect the next one to be at least that good – probably betterHealth-e-Solutions-Ava with her lunch
Ava loves her food.  She made up a song last week about eating healthy food, she is learning to help in the kitchen, she is growing and full of toddler energy!
Diabetes is not a pretty picture, but the pH Miracle lifestyle for Type I and Type 2 diabetes offers a chance for her body to be the healthiest it can be and prevent complications.  That is what is most important to us.  The many other benefits that we experience are less or no insulin needed, less injections, less roller coaster than we had experienced while on larger doses of insulin, especially the fast acting, and less concern for severe lows mainly because of lower or no insulin requirements.  There is no doubt Type 1 diabetes is a horrible disease and management of it is constant, but we feel this is the healthiest way Ava can be treated.
Change always has its challenges.  And certainly having a T1D child is a big change that carries enormous challenge.  But once we settled into a routine of getting organized, planning and preparing, and staying connected to our support system regarding Ava’s care, things started coming together.  And now after a year, our day to day, while still holds challenges, is more manageable and more efficient.  Ava is certainly happier and healthier for it!
The support of Dan and Sally Roman who had two children reverse their Type I diabetes and the network of people living this pH Miracle lifestyle together has been incredible!
We will forever be grateful to God for leading us to the pH Miracle lifestyle and diet.  We have posted on our refrigerator Proverbs 3:5-6, which says “trust in the Lord with all your heart, do not depend on your own understanding.  Seek His will in all you do, and He will direct your paths.”  He has been faithful.  We are so grateful to the Romans for their heart to serve other families so generously, who are living with diabetes.
Moving forward, we are continuing to follow the pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle with Ava.  We are recognizing how this lifestyle is supporting and improving the health of her body.  We are continuously learning from our own experiences and the experiences of others, and implementing things that will support her overall health – it is a journey.  We are full of hope for what the future has for her – and it’s a bright future!

Inflammation is Caused by Dietary and Metabolic Acid That Leads to Obesity, Diabetes, Hypercholesterolemia, Stroke, Atherosclerosis, Heart Disease and Cancer!!

WORLD RENOWNEDNaturopathic Physician, Nutritionist and Microbiologist, Dr. Robert O. Young, N.D., Ph.D., D.Sc, and Heart Surgeon, Dwight Lundell, M.D. SPEAK OUT ON WHAT REALLY CAUSES Inflammation that leads to the symptoms of Obesity, Diabetes, Strokes and HEART DIS-EASE.

It is true that physicians with all their training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit when they are wrong. So, here it is. Dr. Dwight Lundell, M.D. freely admits to being wrong. Dr. Dwight Lundell states, “As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.”  Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.

The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.”

Watch the following youtube video presented by Dr. Lundell, M.D.

It Is Not Working!
Lower cholesterol with toxic acidic medications is no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery by Dr. Robert O. Young, a few years ago that metabolic and dietary acids cause inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease and is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.
The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.
Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive and highly acidic statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before caused by drugs and acidic lifestyles.
Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.
Simply stated, without acid caused inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without acid caused inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is acid caused inflammation from acidic lifestyle and dietary choices that causes cholesterol to become trapped.
Acid caused inflammation is not complicated. The cycle of metabolic and dietary acid inflammation is perfect in how the body releases cholesterol to bind acids that cause inflammation in the first place. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury to acidic poisonous toxins from acidic foods and drinks the human body was never designed to process, a condition occurs called systemic latent tissue acidosis that is the cause of ALL inflammation. Chronic acidic inflammation is just as harmful as acute acidic inflammation and are both caused by an increased of dietary and metabolic acids.
What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself or herself repeatedly to acidic foods, drinks, drugs or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body?  Well, smokers and alcohol drinkers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.
The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream acidic diet that is low in polyunsaturated fats, high in acidic carbohydrates and highly acidic animal flesh, not knowing we were causing repeated acidic injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic acidic inflammation leading to heart diseasestroke, diabetes and obesity.
Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation caused from acidic foods, drinks and metabolism in our blood vessels is the cause of stokes, heart attacks, diabetes and obesity and NOT the increase of cholersterol.  A low fat and low salt diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine will cause strokes, heart attacks, diabetes and obesity.
What are the biggest culprits of chronic acidic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, dairy products, animal flesh, chocolate, coffee, tea, including green tea, alcohol, vinegar, peanuts, mushrooms, flour and corn and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of saturated vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.
Take a moment to visualize rubbing a stiff brush repeatedly over soft skin until it becomes quite red and nearly bleeding if you kept this up several times a day, every day for five years. If you could tolerate this painful brushing, you would have a bleeding, swollen infected area that became worse with each repeated acid causing injury. This is a good way to visualize dietary and metabolic acids as the brush leading to the inflammatory process that could be going on in your body right now.
Regardless of where the acidic inflammatory process occurs, externally or internally, it is the same. Using Ultrasound I have peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. Several times a day, every day, the acidic foods we eat create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with increased acid caused inflammation.
While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, chocolate or a carbonated drink our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived declaring war. ACIDIC foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with saturated oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These acidic foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.
How does eating a simple sweet roll or a piece a chocolate create a cascade of acid caused inflammation to make you sick?
Imagine spilling acidic syrup on your keyboard and you have a visual of what occurs inside the cell. When we consume simple carbohydrates such as sugar, blood sugar rises rapidly. In response, your pancreas secretes insulin whose primary purpose is to bind and solidfy acids so they do NOT destroy healthy body and blood cells and cause internal bleeding.  In addition, the body releases cholesterol to help solidify exess dietary and/or metabolic acids that have NOT been properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination – urination, perspiration, respiration and defecation.  The body sodifies acids to protect healthy tissues, glands and organs from ulceration and degeneration.  After years of an acidic lifestyle and diet solidfied acids will build-up on the wall of the arteries and veins leading to artherosclerosis, stroke and heart attack.
What does all this have to do with inflammation? Blood sugar which is a metabolic acid is controlled in a very narrow range. Extra acidic sugar molecules that are not solidfied and eliminated through the four channels of elimination will injure the blood vessel wall. This repeated acidic injury to the blood vessel wall causes irritation, inflammation, ulceration and eventual degeneration or cancer. When you spike your blood sugar levels or acid levels several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels.
While you may not be able to see it, rest assured tissue, gland and organ acidosis is present. I have seen it in over 40,000 client/patients spanning over 25 years who all shared one common denominator — dietary and metabolic acid caused inflammation in their veins, arteries, glands, tissues and organs.
Let’s get back to the sweet roll and chocolate. These innocent looking goodies not only contains the acid sugar, they are fermented and processed in one of many saturated oils. Chips and fries are soaked in soybean oil; processed foods are manufactured with saturated oils for longer shelf life.
If the balance shifts by consuming excessive sugar, animal protein, vinegar, coffee, tea, alcohol, corn, peanuts and saturated oil, the cell membranes will be damaged and the body and blood cells will begin to degenerate causing evey more acids leading to greater risk of inflammation and disease.
Today’s mainstream American ACID diet has produced an extreme imbalance in the alkaline design of the body and an increase in dietary and metabolic acids that cause ALL sickness and disease.
To make matters worse, eating these acidic foods and drinks causes the body to hold on to more fat as a depository for these excess acids that are NOT being properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination.  That is why people get fat.  The increase in fat is in direct relationship to the increase of acidic foods, drinks and lifestyle choicels.  The process that began with a sweet roll or a cup of coffee, or a piece of chocolate or a glass of wine turns into a vicious cycle over time that creates heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and finally, Alzheimer’s disease, as the acid caused inflammatory process continues unabated.

There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed acidic foods, the more we increase the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars, animal flesh, dairy products, vinegar, alcohol, coffee, tea, chocolate, mushrooms, peanuts, corn, flour and saturated processed oils.
There is but one answer to quieting acid caused inflammation, and that is returning to foods closer to their natural state. To build muscle, eat more chlorphyll concentrated alkaline foods. Choose carbohydrates that are very complex such as colorful fruits and vegetables. Cut down on or eliminate inflammation- causing omega-6 fats like corn and soybean oil and the processed foods that are made from them.
One tablespoon of corn oil contains 7,280 mg of saturated oil; soybean contains 6,940 mg. Instead, use olive oil or avocado oil or hemp oil or fax oil
Forget the “science” that has been drummed into your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat having no place on it hydrogen chain to buffer metabolic and dietary acid is real science.  It is acid that causes disease and ALL poly-unsaturated oils help to buffer excess acidic by the carbon chain picking up the hydrogen ion or acid on its unsaturation.  In other words, all polyunsaturated fats whether Omega 1, 3, 6 or 9 buffer or neutralize all dietary and/or metabolic acids.
The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very acidic foods now causing an epidemic of acid caused inflammation, ulceration and degeneration. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid foods high in cholesterol. We now have an epidemic of arterial acidic caused inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers.
What you can do is choose whole, organic, raw, NON-GMO, alkaline foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured acidic foods and drinks. By eliminating acidic causing inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh, raw, organic, alkaline unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American ACID diet.

Does A Low-Sodium Diet Increase Your Risk For Heart Attack or Stroke?

For 4,000 years, we have known that salt intakes can affect blood pressure through signals to the muscles of blood vessels trying to maintain blood pressure within a proper range. We know that a minority of the population can lower blood pressure by restricting dietary salt. And we know that elevated blood pressure, “hypertension,” is a well-documented marker or “risk factor” for cardiovascular events like heart attacks and strokes, a “silent killer.” Cardiovascular events are a major cause of “premature” death and cost Americans more than $300 billion every year in increased medical costs and lost productivity. Reducing blood pressure can reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke – depending on how it’s done.

Some have suggested that since salt intakes are related to blood pressure, and since cardiovascular risks are also related to blood pressure, that, surely, salt intake levels are related to cardiovascular risk. This is the “salt hypothesis” or “sodium hypothesis.” Data are needed to confirm or reject hypotheses.
Blood pressure is a sign. When it goes up (or down) it indicates an underlying health concern. Changes result from many variables, often still poorly-understood. High blood pressure is treated with pharmaceuticals and with lifestyle interventions such as diet and exercise. The anti-hypertensive drugs are all approved by regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. To be approved, these drugs must prove they work to lower blood pressure. Whether they also work to lower the incidence of heart attacks and strokes has not been the test to gain approval (it would take too long to develop new drugs), but the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute has invested heavily in such “health outcomes” studies.

The ALLHAT study was funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to compare the health outcomes of four classes of anti-hypertensive drugs, all of which had demonstrated their ability to reduce blood pressure in relative safety. The idea is that blood pressure is only a “surrogate outcome,and we should be more concerned with clinically meaningful endpoints. Dr. Jeffrey R. Cutler, who supervised the study for the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) explained its importance: “Trials are based on the notion that different antihypertensive regimes, despite similar efficacy in lowering blood pressure, have other beneficial or harmful effects that modify their net effect on cardiovascular or all-cause morbidity and mortality.”

Lifestyle interventions are “antihypertensive regimes” too. For years, the same situation prompting the ALLHAT trial applied to lifestyle interventions designed to improve blood pressure — they were untested regarding health outcomes. Certain dietary and lifestyle interventions reduced blood pressure, at least in sensitive sub-populations. Whether they also reduced the incidence of heart attacks and strokes had never been tested. Thus, until the 1990s, scientists had never tested the “salt hypothesis” by documenting whether reducing dietary salt actually reduces a person’s chances of having a heart attack or a stroke. As in the drug “health outcomes” trials, this is now changing. The results have vast public health policy implications. We should not be recommending that everyone change their diets without evidence of some overall health benefit.

Even documenting an association of, for example, low-sodium diets with reduced incidence of heart attacks would only be the first step. Association is not the same as causation. Nevertheless, unless an association is established, we have no reason to think that a causal link is possible. Of the first seventeen “health outcomes” studies of sodium reduction, four have found an association in the general population between low-sodium diets and reduced incidence of cardiovascular events like stroke or heart attack (and two of those were in exceptionally high salt-consuming societies). The medical literature does not show a health benefit from reduced-salt diets. Here’s what scientists have found (citations):

1985. A ten-year study of nearly 8,000 Hawaiian Japanese men concluded: “No relation was found between salt intake and the incidence of stroke.”

1995. An eight-year study of a New York City hypertensive population stratified for sodium intake levels found those on low-salt diets had more than four times as many heart attacks as those on normal-sodium diets – the exact opposite of what the “salt hypothesis” would have predicted.

1997. An analysis by NHLBI’s Dr. Cutler of the first six years’ data from the MRFIT database documented no health outcomes benefits of lower-sodium diets.

1997. A ten-year follow-up study to the huge Scottish Heart Health Study found no improved health outcomes for those on low-salt diets.

1998. An analysis of the health outcomes over twenty years from those in the massive US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES I) documented a 20% greater incidence of heart attacks among those on low-salt diets compared to normal-salt diets

1998. A health outcomes study in Finland, reported to the American Heart Association that no health benefits could be identified and concluded “…our results do not support the recommendations for entire populations to reduce dietary sodium intake to prevent coronary heart disease.”

1999. A further analysis of the MRFIT database, this time using fourteen years’ data, confirmed no improved health benefit from low-sodium diets. Its author conceded that there is “no relationship observed between dietary sodium and mortality.”

1999. A study of Americans found that less sodium-dense diets did reduce the cardiovascular mortality of one population sub-set, overweight men – the article reporting the findings did not explain why this obese group actually consumed less sodium than normal-weight individuals in the study.

2001. A Finnish study reported an increase in cardiovascular events for obese men (but not women or normal-weight individuals of either gender) – the article, however, failed to adjust for potassium intake levels which many researchers consider a key associated variable.

2002. In September, 2002, the prestigious Cochrane Collaboration produced the latest and highest-quality meta-analysis of clinical trials. It was published in the British Medical Journal and confirmed earlier meta-analyses’ conclusions that significant salt reduction would lead to very small blood pressure changes in sensitive populations and no health benefits.

2003. In June 2003, Dutch researchers using a massive database in Rotterdam concluded that “variations in dietary sodium and potassium within the range commonly observed in Westernized societies have no material effect on the occurrence of cardiovascular events and mortality at old age.”

2004. In July 2004, the first “outcomes” study identifying a population risk appeared in Stroke magazine. Researchers found that in a Japanese population, “low” sodium intakes (about 20% above Americans’ average intake) had one-third the incidence of fatal strokes of those consuming twice as much sodium as Americans.

2006. A March 2006 analysis of the federal NHANES II database in The American Journal of Medicine found a 37% higher cardiovascular mortality rate for low-sodium dieters

2007. A February 2007 reported in the International Journal of Epidemiology studied 40,547 Japanese over seven years and found “the Japanese dietary pattern was associated with a decreased risk of CVD mortality, despite its relation to sodium intake and hypertension.”

2007. An April 2007 article in the British Medical Journal found a 25% lower risk of CV events in a group which years earlier had achieved significant sodium reduction during two clinical trials (TOHP I and TOHP II).

2007. An October 2007 analysis of a large Dutch database published in the European Journal of Epidemiology documented no benefit of low-salt diets in reducing stroke or heart attack incidence nor lowering death rates.

2008. A May 2008 examination of NHANES II (the largest US federal database of nutrition and health) published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine confirmed two earlier studies of earlier NHANES surveys that there is no health benefit (CVD or all-cause mortality) for those on low-sodium diets.

From my own research I have found an association between low sodium diets and increased tissue and organ acidity.  Since sodium or salt is necessary in the production of sodium bicarbonate to manage dietary and/or metabolic acid a low sodium diet would increase risk of latent tissue acidosis and cononary vascular disease.

Do low-salt diets improve health outcomes? The evidence

There have been relatively few studies of the fundamental question of whether reducing an individual’s — or a population’s — salt intake will improve their health outcomes. Usually only one risk factor is considered: blood pressure. Other impacts confound blood pressure, itself a rather herterogeneous response. None of the outcomes studies is a controlled trial. Thus, policies embracing universal salt (or sodium) reduction have a weak foundation in the medical literature.

The Cure For ALL Cancers, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Lupus, Arthritis, Alzhiemers Has Been Discovered!


Disease, or should we say dis-Ease, and names like Cancer, Heart Disease, Type I and Type II Diabetes, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, Alzhiemers and Osteoporosis are misleading. Not only do they strike fear into our collective hearts, but they misinform patients—and everyone else—about both care and dis-ease prevention and treatment

There is a curious tendency in conventional medicine to take a set of symptoms, string them together, and give the whole thing a name which is then called a disease.

Did I say “curious?” Well yes, but I might add, disconcerting, irresponsible, self-serving, exclusionary and just plain wrong!  Once the western medical monopoly names a symptom a disease, they have made a major effort and taken a major step toward baring the door for all other adjunctive and alternative medical professions from getting involved.

I was recently at a compounding pharmacy having my bone mineral density measured to update my health stats. I spotted a poster touting a new drug for osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. It was written by a drug company and it said exactly this:

“Osteoporosis is a dis-ease that causes weak and fragile bones.” Then, the poster went on to say that you need a particular drug to counteract this “disease”. Yet the language is all backwards.

The Cause and Cure for Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Osteoporosis

Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis are not diseases that cause weak joints, weak bones, weak tissues and weak organs. For example, Rheumatoid arthritis is the name given to a “diagnosis” of inflammation and degeneration of the joints, tissues and organs. But rheumatoid arthritis does not come from inflamed and degenerative joints. And inflamed and degenerative joints do not come from rheumatoid arthritis. The inflammation and degeneration of the joints are the direct and indirect result of excess dietary and/or metabolic acidity. But then medical doctors follow it up with the fancy diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Just the name sounds scary. The drug companies and their marketing makes it sound like rheumatoid arthritis strikes first, and then you get inflamed and degenerative joints, tissues and organs. The cause and effect is all backwards. And that’s how drug companies want people to think about dis-eases and symptoms: first you “get” the dis-ease, and then you are “diagnosed” just in time to take a new drug for the rest of your life. And, of course, you have to keep going back to the doctor for a visit to renew the prescription.  But it’s all hogwash. There is no such disease as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or osteoporosis. It’s just a made-up name given to a pattern of acidic lifestyle and diet symptoms that indicates you are over-acid which causes your joints, tissues and organs to become weak, fragile, and inflamed.

The Cause and Cure For High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol

As another example, when a person follows an unhealthy acidic lifestyle and diet that results in a symptom such as high blood pressure, that symptom is actually being assumed to be a disease all by itself. Then, it is given a disease name. What disease? The dis-ease is, of course, is “hypertension” or “high blood pressure.” Doctors throw this phrase around as if it were an actual dis-ease and not merely descriptive of patient physiology.

This may all seem silly, right? But there’s actually a very important point to all this. When we look at symptoms and give them disease names, we automatically distort the selection of available treatments for such a dis-ease.

If the dis-ease is, by itself, hypercholesterolemia or high cholesterol, then the cure for the dis-ease must be nothing other than lowering the high cholesterol. And that’s how we end up with all these pharmaceuticals treating high cholesterol in order to “prevent” this dis-ease and lower the levels of LDL cholesterol in the human patient. By lowering only the cholesterol, the doctor can rest assured that he is, in fact, treating this “disease,” since the definition of this “disease” is hypercholesterolemia or high cholesterol and nothing else.

But there is a fatal flaw in this approach to disease treatment: the symptom is not the cause of the dis-ease. There is another cause, and this deeper cause is routinely ignored by conventional medicine, doctors, drug companies, and even patients. Let’s take a closer look at hypertension or high blood pressure.

What actually causes high blood pressure?

Many doctors would say high blood pressure is caused by a specific, measurable interaction between circulating chemicals in the human body. Thus, the ill-behaved chemical compounds are the cause of the high blood pressure, and therefore the solution is to regulate these chemicals. That’s exactly what pharmaceuticals do. They attempt to manipulate the chemicals in the body to adjust the symptoms of high blood pressure. Thus, they only treat the symptoms, not the root cause. Or take a look at high cholesterol. The conventional medicine approach says that high cholesterol is caused by a chemical imbalance in the liver which is the organ that produces cholesterol. Thus the treatment for high cholesterol is a prescription drug that inhibits the liver’s production of cholesterol (statin drugs). Upon taking these drugs, the high cholesterol (the “disease”) is regulated.

But what was causing the liver to overproduce cholesterol in the first place?

That causative factor remains ignored and unaddressed. The base cause or the root cause of high cholesterol, as it turns out, is primarily an over-acidic lifestyle and diet. A person who lives an acidic life is a person who frequently eats foods that are acidic that will inevitably cause the body to go into preservation mode and produce more cholesterol to neutralize the excess acid from that acidic food or drink and thus showing the symptoms of this so-called dis-ease of high cholesterol. Its simple cause and effect.

If you eat the wrong foods and don’t exercise, you will produce too much acid which can cause the body to release cholesterol from the liver to bind up that dietary and/or metabolic acid which can be detected and diagnosed by conventional medical procedures.

You see, it is not the cholesterol that is bad. It is the acid-producing food we eat and the lack of exercise that is bad. Reduce the acid-producing foods like beef, chicken, pork, dairy, coffee, tea, soda pop, sports drinks, energery drinks, alcohol, etc. and start exercising every day and you will reduce the protective cholesterol that is saving your life from dietary acids that are not being properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination (urination, perspiration, defecation and respiration).

So, the root cause of all disease, inflammation, degeneration, the increase of blood plasma antibodies or increase blood plasma LDL cholesterol is actually poor lifestyle and food choice, not some bizarre behavior by the liver. If the disease were to be accurately named, then, it would be called “Acidic Lifestyle and Food Choice Dis-Ease”, or simply ALFCD. ALFCD would be a far more accurate name that would make sense to most people. If it’s an acidic lifestyle and foods choice dis-ease, then it seems that the obvious solution to the dis-ease would be to choose a lifestyle and foods that aren’t so acidic or are alkalizing to the blood, tissues and organs.

Of course, that may be a bit of a over-simplification since you have to distinguish between healthy alkaline lifestyles and foods and unhealthy acidic lifestyle and foods. But at least the name ALFCD gives patients a better idea of what’s actually going on in their body rather than naming the dis-ease after a symptom such as hypercholesterolemia or rheumatoid arthritis or even cancer.

The symptom is not the dis-ease, but conventional medicine insists on calling the symptom the dis-ease because that way it can treat the symptom and claim success without actually addressing the underlying cause which somehow remains a mystery to modern medicine. But let’s move on to some other dis-eases so you get a clearer picture of how this actually works.

The Cause and Cure for Type I and Type II Diabetes

Another dis-ease that’s caused by poor lifestyle and acidic food choice is diabetes. Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes is the natural physiological and metabolic result of a person consuming refined carbohydrates and added sugars in large quantities, undigested proteins from beef, chicken, and pork without engaging in regular physical exercise that would compensate for such dietary practices. The name “diabetes” is meaningless to the average person. The disease should be called “Excessive Acid Dis-Ease”, or EAD.

If diabetes Type I or Type II were called “Excessive Acid Dis-ease”, the solution to it would be rather apparent; simply eliminate ALL sugars, eliminate all animal proteins, eggs, dairy, soft drinks, candy, processed food and be sure to exercise, rest, etc. But, of course, that would be far too simple for the medical community. So the dis-ease must be given a complex name such as Type I or Type II diabetes that puts its solution or cure out of the reach of the average patient.

The Cause and Cure for ALL Cancers

Another dis-ease that is named after its symptom is Cancer. In fact, to this day, most doctors and many patients still believe that Cancer is a physical thing: a tumor. In reality, a tumor is the solution of Cancer, not its cause. A tumor is simply a physical manifestation of bound up acidic cells so they do not spoil other healthy cells. The tumor is the solution to cells damaged by dietary and/or metabolic acids, not the problem but the solution.

The truth is Cancer is not a cell but an acidic poisonous liquid. When a person “has cancer”, what they really have is cancerous tissues or “latent tissue acidosis”. They are absorbing their own acidic urine. That would be a far better name for ALL forms of Cancer dis-ease: Cancerous Tissue Dis-Ease (CTD) or “Latent Tissue Acidosis” or LTA.

If Cancer were actually called “Latent Tissue Acidosis”, it would seem ridiculous to try to cure cancer by cutting out tumors through surgery and by destroying the immune or janitorial system with chemotherapy. And yet these are precisely the most popular treatments for Cancer offered by conventional medicine. These treatments do absolutely nothing to support the patients immune system and prevent the build-up of dietary, metabolic, environmental and respiratory acids in the tissues.

That’s exactly why most people who undergo chemotherapy or the removal of tumors through surgical procedures end up with more cancerous tumors a few months or a few years later. It’s also another reason why survival rates of cancer have barely budged over the last thirty years.

In other words, conventional medicine’s treatments for cancer simply don’t work!

Bottom line, the main reason treatment doesn’t work is that current medical science wrongly perceives Cancer as a cell when in reality Cancer is an acidic poisonous liquid waste product, like lactic acid or uric acid, from what we eat, drink and think.

A good part of this situation stems from the fact that the dis-ease is misnamed “Cancer” to begin with. But it isn’t a tumor and it certainly isn’t a dis-ease caused by having an immune system which is too strong and that needs to be destroyed through chemotherapy. It is simply “latent tissue acidosis”. And if it were called “latent tissue acidosis dis-ease” or “urine-in-the-tissues dis-ease”, the effective treatment for cancer would be apparent.

There are many other dis-eases that are given misleading names by western medicine. But if you look around the world and take a look at how dis-eases are named elsewhere, you will find many countries have dis-ease names that actually make sense.

For example, in Chinese medicine, Alzheimer’s dis-ease is given a name that means, when translated, “feeble mind disease”. In Chinese medicine, the name of the dis-ease more accurately describes the actual cause of the dis-ease which is caused by acids or urine on the brain, whereas in western medicine, the name of the dis-ease seems to be intended to obscure the root cause of the dis-ease, thereby making all dis-eases sound far more complex and mysterious than they really are. This is one way in which medical and some alternative doctors and practitioners of western medicine keep medical treatments out of the reach of the average person. Because, good Heavens, they sure don’t want people thinking for themselves about the true causes of dis-ease!

By creating a whole new vocabulary for medical conditions, medical doctors can speak their own secret language and make sure that people who aren’t schooled in medicine don’t understand what they’re saying. That’s a shame, because the treatments and cures for virtually all acute and chronic dis-eases are actually quite simple and can be described in plain language: They include making different alkaline food choices, getting more natural sunlight, drinking more alkaline water, engaging in regular physical exercise, avoiding specific acidic foods, supplementing our diet with green foods and green drinks, alkalizing nutritional supplements, and so on.

Western medicine prefers to describe dis-eases in terms of chemistry. When you’re depressed, you aren’t suffering from a lack of natural sunlight; you are suffering from a “brain chemistry imbalance” that can only be regulated, they claim, by ingesting toxic chemicals to alter your brain chemistry.

When your bones are brittle, it’s not “acidic brittle bones dis-ease”; it’s called osteoporosis, something that sounds very technical and complicated. Or when your joints are inflamed and degeneration, it’s not called “acidic connective tissue disease or “i absorb my own urine disease”, it’s called rheumatoid arthritis. And to treat all of these acidic conditions, western doctors and physicians will give you prescriptions for expensive drugs that somehow claim to make your bones less brittle or use acidic steroids to make your joints less inflamed. But in fact, the real treatment for these acidic symptomologies can be described in plain language once again: regular physical exercise, vitamin D supplementation, mineral supplements that include sodium, magnesium and strontium, natural sunlight, and avoidance of acidic foods such as soft drinks, white flour, added sugars, dairy products, that increases uric acid, carbonic acid, lactose and lactic acid in the tissues and of course all animal proteins which release the poisonous acids of nitric, uric, sulphuric and phosphoric acid into the blood and connective tissues.  All of these acids, if not eliminated through the four channels of elimination can only lead to one thing – acidic chronic inflammation and then degeneration of the connective tissues, organs and glands.

In fact, virtually every dis-ease that is prominent in modern society—diabetes, heart disease, cancer, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, clinical depression, irritable bowel syndrome, Parkinson’s, Lupus, Alzhiermers, and so on—can be easily described in plain language without using complex terms at all.

These dis-eases are simply misnamed. And I believe that they are intentionally misnamed to put the jargon out of reach of everyday people. As a result, there’s a great deal of arrogance in the language of western medicine. This arrogance furthers the language of separation. Separation never results in healing.

In order to effect healing, we must bring together the language of healers and patients using plain language that real people understand and upon which real people can act. We need to start describing dis-eases in terms of their root causes, not in terms of their arcane, biochemical actions. When someone suffers from seasonal affective disorder or clinical depression, for example, let’s call it what it is: “Sunlight Deficiency Disorder”. To treat it, the person simply needs to get more sunlight. This isn’t rocket science, it’s not complex, and it doesn’t require a prescription from Big Bucks Pharma.

If someone is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, let’s get realistic about the words we use to describe the condition: it’s really “Acidic Connective Joint and Tissue Dis-ease”. And it should be treated with things that will reduce the acids that cause inflammation and degeneration, such as nutrition, physical exercise and avoidance of acidic foods and drinks that strip away bone mass, cause inflammation and degeneration from the human body to neutralize the excess acids in the blood and then joints, tissues, organs and glands.

All of this information, of course, is rather shocking to old-school medical doctors and practitioners of western medicine. And unfortunately, the bigger their egos and insecurity, the more they dislike the idea of naming dis-eases in plain language that patients can actually comprehend.

That’s because if the simple truths about dis-eases and their causes were known, health would be more readily available to everyday people, and that would lessen the importance of physicians and medical researchers. There’s a great deal of ego invested in the medical community, and they sure don’t want to make sound health attainable to the average person without their expert acidic advice.

Many medical doctors want to serve as the translators of “truth” and will balk at any attempts to educate the public to either practice medicine on their own. But in reality, health (and a connection with spirit) is attainable by every single person that resides on planet earth.

Health is easy, it is straightforward, it is direct and, for the most part, it is available free of charge. A personal connection with our Creator is the same if we ask humbly in prayer for a relationship with Him, and guidance.

Don’t believe the names of dis-eases given to you by your medical doctor. Those names are designed to obscure, not to inform. They are designed to separate you from self-healing, not to put you in touch with your own inner healer. And thus, they are nothing more than bad medicine masquerading as modern medical practice.

In conclusion, it is acid that causes an allergic reaction NOT exercise.  It is dietary, metabolic, environmental and respiratory acids that KILL – NOT EXERCISE.  If you do not make time to exercise and remove the acids that cause ALL sickness and disease you will need to make time to DIE!

The Cure for ALL human and animal sickness and disease, including the BIG three, Cancer, Diabetes and Heart Disease is found in it ‘Prevention’ not in its ‘Cure’.

Lipid Researcher, 98, Reports On the Dietary Causes of Heart Disease Validating Dr. Robert O. Young’s Research

Feb. 27, 2013 — A 98-year-old researcher argues that, contrary to decades of clinical assumptions and advice to patients, dietary cholesterol is good for your heart — unless that cholesterol is unnaturally oxidized (by frying foods in reused oil, eating lots of polyunsaturated fats, or smoking).

Fred Kummerow, a 98-year-old emeritus professor of comparative biosciences at the University of Illinois, explains the primary causes of heart disease. His research contradicts commonly held notions about the role of dietary cholesterol. (Credit: L. Brian Stauffer)The researcher, Fred Kummerow, an emeritus professor of comparative biosciences at the University of Illinois, has spent more than six decades studying the dietary factors that contribute to heart disease. In a new paper in the American Journal of Cardiovascular Disease, he reviews the research on lipid metabolism and heart disease with a focus on the consumption of oxidized cholesterol — in his view a primary contributor to heart disease.
“Oxidized lipids contribute to heart disease both by increasing deposition of calcium on the arterial wall, a major hallmark of atherosclerosis, and by interrupting blood flow, a major contributor to heart attack and sudden death,” Kummerow wrote in the review.
Over his 60-plus-year career, Kummerow has painstakingly collected and analyzed the findings that together reveal the underlying mechanisms linking oxidized cholesterol (and trans fats) to heart disease.

Dr. Robert O. Young, a researcher at the pH Miracle Center in Valley Center, California states, “lipids, especially LDL’s are a primary chelator of dietary and/or metabolic acids, protecting the vasuclar system and heart from acid or oxidizing damage.”

Many of Kummerow’s insights come from his relentless focus on the physical and biochemical changes that occur in the arteries of people with heart disease. For example, he has worked with surgeons to retrieve and examine the arteries of people suffering from heart disease, and has compared his findings with those obtained in animal experiments.
He and his colleagues first reported in 2001 that the arteries of people who had had bypass operations contained elevated levels of sphingomyelin (SFING-oh-my-uh-lin), one of several phospholipids (phosphate-containing lipids) that make up the membranes of all cells. The bypass patients also had significantly more oxidized cholesterols (oxysterols) in their plasma and tissues than people who had not been diagnosed with heart disease.
Human cells incubated with the blood plasma of the cardiac patients also picked up significantly more calcium from the culture medium than cells incubated in the plasma of healthy patients. When the researchers added oxysterols to the healthy plasma, the proportion of sphingomyelin in the cells increased, as did the uptake of calcium.

Dr. Young further states, “because cardiac patients are highly acidic from an acidic lifestyle and diet the body uses lipids and calcium to solidify dietary and metabolic acids to protect the organs that sustain life, such as the heart.  This of course can cause acidic build-up on the walls of the arteries leading to athersclerosis and/or coronary heart disease.  A plant based diet can prevent the solidification of acids and protect the heart from acid damage and the build-up of acids on the walls of the arteries.”

Earlier research, including studies conducted by medical pioneer Michael DeBakey, noted that the most problematic plaques in patients with heart disease occurred at the branch-points of the arteries of the heart. Kummerow followed up on these reports by looking at the phospholipid content of the arterial walls in pigs and humans. He found (and reported in 1994) that the branch points of the arteries in humans and in swine also had significantly more sphingomyelin than other regions of the same arteries.
For Kummerow, the increase in sphingomyelin was a prime suspect in the blocked and calcified arteries of the cardiac patients. He had already found that the arteries of the newborn human placenta contained only about 10 percent sphingomyelin and 50 percent phosphatidylcholine (FOSS-fuh-tih-dul-COH-lean), another important phospholipid component of cell membranes.
“But when we looked at the arteries of people who had had bypass operations, we found up to 40 percent sphingomyelin and about 27 percent phosphatidylcholine,” Kummerow said. “It took us many more years to discover that when you added large amounts of oxysterols to the cells, then the phosphatidylcholine changed to sphingomyelin.”
Further evidence supported sphingomyelin’s starring role in atherosclerosis. When Kummerow and his colleagues compared the blocked and unblocked arteries of patients needing second bypass operations, they found that the arteries with blockages contained twice as much sphingomyelin as the unblocked arteries. The calcium content of the blocked arteries (6,345 parts per million) was also much higher than that of the unblocked arteries (182 ppm).
Other studies had demonstrated a link between increases in sphingomyelin and the deposit of calcium in the coronary arteries. The mechanism by which this occurred was unclear, however. Kummerow’s team searched the literature and found a 1967 study that showed that in the presence of certain salts (in the blood, for example), lipids like sphingomyelin develop a negative charge. This explains the attraction of the positively charged calcium to the arterial wall when high amounts of sphingomyelin are present, Kummerow said.

Dr. Young suggests, “the increase of sphingomyelin and the deposit of calcium in the coronnary arteries is simply caused by an increase of dietary and/or metabolic acids that have been solidfied to protect healthy body cells from acid oxidation or degeneration.”

“So there was a negative charge on the wall of this artery, and it attracted calcium from the blood until it calcified the whole artery,” he said.
Oxidized fats contribute to heart disease (and sudden death from heart attacks) in an additional way, Kummerow said. He and his collaborators found that when the low-density lipoprotein (LDL, the so-called “bad cholesterol”) is oxidized, it increases the synthesis of a blood-clotting agent, called thromboxane, in the platelets.
If someone eats a diet rich in oxysterols and trans fats and also smokes, he or she is endangering the heart in three distinct ways, Kummerow said. The oxysterols enhance calcification of the arteries and promote the synthesis of a clotting agent. And the trans fats and cigarette smoke interfere with the production of a compound, prostacyclin, which normally keeps the blood fluid.
“And that causes 600,000 deaths in this country each year,” Kummerow said.
Kummerow is the author of “Cholesterol Won’t Kill You, But Trans Fats Could.”

The Use of Bicarbonates in the Treatment of All Cancers, Kidney Disease, Liver Disease, Type I & Type II Diabetes, Heart Disease, Pharmacological Toxicosis, Vascular Surgery Operations, Tonsillar Herniation Due To Cerebral Edema, Lactic Acid Toxicosis, and Hyponatremia or Low Salt or Loss of Salts Due To Excessive or Over-Exercise!

Sodium bicarbonate is an excellent agent for a natural alkaline approach in the treatment for all sickness and disease, including cancer. Sodium bicarbonate is the universal mainstream treatment of acidosis. It is used every day by oncologists to neutralize the heavy acidic nature of their chemical and chemotherapeutic agents which are often quite toxic. Sodium bicarbonate is also used routinely in many clinical situations as herein noted including many peer–reviewed journals:

1) Severe diabetic ketoacidosis (1)
2) Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (2)
3) Pregnancy (3)
4) Hemodialysis (4)
5) Peritoneal dialysis (5)
6) Pharmacological toxicosis (6)
7) Hepatopathy (7)
8) Vascular surgery operations (8)

Medics and emergency room medical doctors are accustomed to participating in a flurry of activity when trying to save a persons live after a cardiac arrest–inserting IVs and breathing tubes, performing defibrillation to restart the heart, etc. Sodium bicarbonate is a constant performer under such conditions and is more commonly used than magnesium injections, which is traditionally at the top of every doctor’s protocol for cardiac arrest.

Mainstream oncologists recognize the routine involvement of late stage infections which I refer to as outfections in all cancerous conditions. Medical savants also recognize that bacteria, yeast and mold is present in over forty percent of all cancerous conditions. (9) The most recent research in this area demonstrates how even viruses, which I describe as crystallized acid, is present in fifty percent of certain types of cancerous conditions. (10)

Sodium Bicarbonate increases the hydroxyl ions or electron levels through increased alkalinity to the cells buffering the metabolic acids that can cause cancer.(20)  It is also one of the most basic medicines in allopathic and alternative medicine we have for the treatment of kidney disease. New research by British scientists at the Royal London Hospital shows that sodium bicarbonate can dramatically slow the progress of chronic kidney disease.(11) We don’t need a thousand years of scientific tests to understand something as simple and essential as water and it is quite the same with sodium bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate is always present in the best alkaline drinking waters and organic raw green foods and is constantly being produced by the cover cells of the stomach to alkalize the acidic foods and liquids we ingest, including buffering metabolic and respiratory acids in order to maintain the alkaline design of the blood and tissues at a delicate pH of 7.365.(20)

What is Latent Tissue Acidosis?

Medical doctors and savants are not taught in medical school and therefore do not understand or recognize latent tissue acidosis. They understand and recognize compensated acidosis and decompensated acidosis. In compensated acidosis, breathing increases in order to blow off more carbonic acid which decreases PCO2 because of the lowered carbonate or HCO3. When the breathing rate can no longer get any faster and when the kidneys can no longer increase its’ function to keep up with the acid load, then the blood pH starts to change from a pH of 7.365 to 7.3 then to 7.2. At a blood pH of 6.95 the heart relaxes and the client goes into a coma or dies.

Latent “acidosis” is a condition that exists when there are not enough bases in the alkalophile glands because they have been used up in the process of neutralizing the acids adsorbed to the collagen fibers. This leads to compensated “acidosis.” This means the blood pH has not changed but other body systems have changed. This can then lead to decompensated “acidosis” where the alkaline reserves of the blood are used up and the pH of the blood is altered. Decompensated “acidosis” can be determined by testing the blood pH, urine pH and the saliva pH. The decrease in the alkaline reserves in the body  can occur because of hyper-proteinization, (eating meat and cheese!) or too much protein, and hyper-carbonization, or too much sugar or from excessive or over-excercise. This is why young athletes fall over dead or why 80 to 90 year old folks are all shrunk up and look like prunes. They have very little or no alkaline reserves in their alkalophile glands. When all the alkaline minerals are gone, so are you and your battery runs out of charge. The charge of your cellular battery can be measured by testing the ORP or the oxidative reduction potential of the blood, urine or saliva using an ORP meter. As you become more acidic this energy potential or ORP increases.

How Is Sodium Bicarbonate Created In The Body?

The parietal or cover cells of the stomach split the sodium chloride of the blood. The sodium ion is used to bind with water and carbon dioxide to form the alkaline salt, sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3. The biochemistry is: H20 + CO2 + NaCl = NaHCO3 + HCL. This is why I call the stomach an alkalizing organ NOT an organ of digestion. The stomach DOES NOT digest the food or liquids we ingest but it alkalizes the foods and liquids we ingest.  We have one instrument in the human body to digest food and it is NOT the stomach it is your teeth.  Once we swallow our food or drink the stomach begins to prepare the food by alkalizing it in a bath of sodium bicarbonate.

For each molecule of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) made, a molecule of hydrochloric acid (HCL) is made and secreted into the so-called digestive system – specifically, the stomach (the gastric pits in the stomach) – to be eliminated via the blood. Therefore HCL is an acidic waste product of sodium bicarbonate created by the stomach to alkalize the food and liquids ingested.

Exercise Creates Metabolic Acidic Waste Products Which Are Harmful To The Blood and Tissues

When one exercises or over-exercises the body needs additional alkaline bicarbonate salts to buffer lactic acids.  The additional bicarbonate is created in the stomach lining to buffer the increased amounts of lactic acids produced as a waste product of metabolism.  The production of sodium bicarbonate will always leave an acidic waste product of hydrochloric acid in the gastric pits of the stomach leading to nausea, light headedness, dizziness, muddle thingking, and poor circulation.  If the excessive exercise continues this can then lead to a dificiency of mineral and bicarbonate salts (electrolytes lost through perspiration or urination) which may lead to latent tissue acidosis, pain, edema, hyponatrenia and death.

But how does something like sodium and/or potassium bicarbonate, so seemingly innocuous have such a dramatic effect? During prolonged or intense exercise muscles produce large amounts of acidic waste products, such as lactic acid, that lead to soreness, stiffness, fatigue and possible edema if these acids are not buffered and eliminated through urination or perspiration. Because sodium and potassium bicarbonate naturally reduces metabolic acids, it acts as a buffer against these performance-limiting by-products.

Current research suggests that supplemental sodium bicarbonate, like the pH Miracle pHour Salts (contains sodium and potassium bicarbonate) is particularly helpful in speed-based events, including sprints, football and other fast-moving games, and middle-distance (up to 10km) running, swimming and cycling. “Essentially, sodium bicarbonate is an alkaline substance that increases the pH of the blood,” Dr Folland says. “This seems to reduce and offset the acidity produced in the muscles during intense, anaerobic exercise that produces lactic acid most quickly, such as fast running or swimming.”

In Dr Folland’s study, swimmers who took the sodium bicarbonate knocked 1.5 seconds off their time for 200m, a difference that may seem insignificant to recreational swimmers but which is substantial at elite level.

“At the last Olympics, the top four swimmers in the men’s 200m freestyle were separated by just 1.4 seconds,” Dr Folland says. “So, in theory, it could be the difference between winning a medal and not.”

Anyone can try it, he says, but only those who are serious enough to monitor their times and progress in sports such as running, swimming or cycling may notice the few seconds advantage it might provide. “The increments of improvement are relatively small to the average person, although significant to someone who competes,” Dr Folland says.

Athletes for years have sworn that taking a spoonful of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) helps them to keep going for longer. For years, experts doubted that there was anything other than a placebo effect to these claims until they subjected the substance to rigorous examination. Most exercise scientists investigating the trend for “soda-doping” among athletes and gym-goers have shown that it offers significant benefits for endurance and speed.”

At Loughborough University, for instance, physiologists reporting in the June issue of the International Journal of Sports Medicine showed that swimmers who took baking soda about one hour before a 200m event were able to shave a significant time off their usual performances. Dr Jonathan Folland, who led the study, says that it is not uncommon for top swimmers to take sodium bicarbonate (another name for the substance) before a competition to give them an edge. Indeed, he showed that of nine swimmers tested, eight recorded their fastest times after ingesting a supplement of the common baking ingredient – sodium bicarbonate.

Where is Sodium Bicarbonate Created In The Human Body and Why?

The chloride ion from the sodium chloride (salt) binds to an acid or proton forming HCL as a waste product of sodium bicarbonate production. HCL has a pH of 1 and is highly toxic to the blood and tissues and the cause of indigestion, acid reflux, ulcers, diabetes, cancer, hyponatremia, edema, tonsilar herniation and death.  When large amounts of acids, including HCL, enter the stomach from a rich animal protein or dairy product meal, such as meat and cheese, or from starchy foods from root vegetables like potatoes or during extreme exercise, acid is withdrawn from the acid-base household. The organism would die if the resulting alkalosis – or NaHCO3 (base flood) or base surplus – created by the stomach was not taken up by the alkalophile glands (salivary glands, pancreas, kidney, pylorus glands, Brunner’s glands, Lieberkuhn glands and liver) that need these quick bases in order to build up their strong sodium bicarbonate secretions. These alkalizing glands and organs are the stomach, pancreas, Brunner’s glands (between the pylorus and the junctions of the bile and pancreatic ducts), Lieberkuhn’s glands in the liver and its bile with its strong acid binding capabilities which it has to release on the highly acidic meat, cheese, potato, acid water or metabolic and/or respiratory acids from over-exercise to buffer its strong acids of nitric, sulphuric, phosphoric, uric and lactic acids in daily metabolism, respiration and excessive or over-exercise.

Bicarbonate acts to stimulate the
ATPase by acting directly on it.(12)

The simple household product used for baking, cleaning, bee stings, treating asthma, cancer and acid indigestion is so effective in treating disease that it prevents patients from having to be put on kidney dialysis. The findings have been published in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. Bicarbonate is a truly strong universal concentrated nutritional medicine that works effectively in many clinical situations that we would not normally think of. Bicarbonates of sodium and potassium are a prime emergency room and intensive care medicine that can save a person’s life in a heartbeat and it is also a supermarket item that you can take right off the shelf and use for more things than one can imagine – including diaper rash.

Dr. SK Hariachar, a nephrologist who oversees the Renal Hypertension Unit in Tampa, Florida stated, upon seeing the research on sodium bicarbonate and kidney disease, “I am glad to see confirmation of what we have known for so long.  I have been treating my patients with bicarbonate for many years in attempts to delay the need for dialysis, and now we finally have a legitimate study to back us up. Not only that, we have the added information that some people already on dialysis can reverse their condition with the use of sodium bicarbonate”.

A dialysis technician at the same center as Dr. Hariachar, who used to be on dialysis himself for 2 years as a result of kidney failure, had his kidneys miraculously start functioning to the point where dialysis was no longer needed. He states that he was prescribed oral doses of sodium bicarbonate throughout his treatment, and still takes it daily to prevent recurrences of kidney failure. Dr. Hariachar maintains though, that not everyone will be helped by taking bicarbonate. He says that those patients who have difficulty excreting acids, even with dialysis using a bicarbonate dialysate bath, that, “oral bicarbonate makes all the difference.”

The Stomach, Pancreas and Kidneys Naturally Produce Sodium Bicarbonate Every Day
The exocrine section of sodium bicarbonate from the stomach and the pancreas have been greatly ignored in the treatment of diabetes and cancer even though its impairment is a well documented condition. The stomach and the pancreas is primarily responsible for the production of sodium bicarbonate necessary for normal alkalization of food and liquids ingested. Sodium bicarbonate is so important for protecting the kidney’s that even the kidneys get into the act of producing sodium bicarbonate.  We now know the common denominator between hyponatremia, inflammation, edema, diabetes, kidney disease, and cancer is the lack of sodium bicarbonate or the body’s inability to produce sodium bicarbonate because of a lack of mineral salts in the diet. When the body is hit with reductions in sodium bicarbonate output by these three organs,’ acid conditions build up and then the entire body physiology begins to change from a state of oxygenation to fermentation. Likewise when acid build-up outstrips these organs normal sodium bicarbonate capacity, cellular, tissue, glandular and organ deterioration begins.

The stomach, pancreas and the kidneys alone produce about five hundred
 grams (about one pound) of sodium bicarbonate
 per day in an attempt to neutralize dietary and/or metabolic acid in the blood and tissues.

The stomach, pancreas and the kidneys monitor and control the acidity or “acid-base” (pH) balance of the blood and tissues. If the blood and tissues are too acidic, the stomach and/or the kidney’s make sodium bicarbonate to restore the blood and tissue pH back to a delicate pH balance of 7.365. If the blood or tissues are too alkaline, then the kidney excretes sodium bicarbonate into the urine to restore the 7.365 alkaline balance. Acid-base balance is the net result of two processes, first, the removal of sodium bicarbonate subsequent to hydrogen ion production from the metabolism or dietary constituents; second, the synthesis of “new” sodium bicarbonate by the stomach and/or the  kidney’s.(13)  The stomach and kidneys pull salt, water and carbon dioxide from the blood to make sodium bicarbonate to maintain the alkaline design of the body during all functions of the body from the ingestion of food or drink to exercise.  The chemical formula is as follows:  NaCl + H2O + CO2 = NaHCO3 + HCL.  The waste product of sodium bicarbonate is hydrochloric acid which is eliminated by kidneys as an acidic excretion of the urine.

It is considered that normal adults eating ordinary Western diets have chronic, low-grade acidosis which increases with age. This excess acid, or acidosis, is considered to contribute to many diseases and to contribute to the aging or rotting process. Acidosis occurs often when the body cannot produce enough sodium bicarbonate ions (or other alkaline compounds) to neutralize the acids in the body formed from metabolism and eating and drinking highly acid foods and drinks like chicken, pork, beef, dairy products, coffee, tea, alcohol, chocolate, soft drinks, just to name a few.  We are also testing bottled mineral water and finding that these waters are acidic and may contribute to overall tissue acidosis. 

Acid-buffering by means of base supplementation (The pH Miracle pHour Salts) of sodium bicarbonate is one of the major roles of dialysis. Sodium bicarbonate concentration in the dialysate (solution containing water and chemicals (electrolytes) that passes through the artificial kidney to remove excess fluids and wastes from the blood, also called “bath.”) should be personalized in order to reach a midweek pre-dialysis serum sodium bicarbonate concentration of 22 mmol/l.(14)  Use of sodium bicarbonate in dialysate has been shown in studies to better control some metabolic aspects and to improve both treatment tolerance and patients’ life quality.  Sodium bicarbonate dialysis, unlike acetate-free biofiltration, triggers mediators of inflammation and apoptosis.(15)

One of the main reasons we become over-acid is from over-consumption of animal protein, dairy products, high sugar fruit, grains, alcohol, coffee, tea, chocolate, soft drinks and over-exercise or under-exercise. Eating meat and dairy products may increase the risk of prostate cancer, research suggests.(16) We would find the same for breast and other cancers as well metastatic cancers.(17) Conversely mineral deficiencies are another reason and when you combine high protein intake with decreasing intake of alkaline minerals you have a dis-ease in the making through lowering of pH into highly acidic conditions. When protein breaks down in our bodies they break into strong acids, such as, nitric, uric, sulphuric and phosphoric acid.

Unless a treatment actually removes acidic toxins
 from the body and increases oxygen, water, and
 nutrients most medical interventions come to naught.

These metabolic and dietary acids must be excreted by the kidney’s because they contain sulfur, phosphorus, and/or nitrogen which cannot break down into water and carbon dioxide to be eliminated as weak acids. In their passage through the kidney’s these strong acids of ntric, sulphuric, phosphoric and uric acid must take a basic mineral with them because in this way they are converted into their neutral salts and don’t burn or destroy the kidney’s on their way out. This would happen if these strong acids were excreted in their free acidic form.

infusion prior to administration of radiocontrast

reduce the incidence of nephropathy.(18)

Sodium Bicarbonate ions neutralize the acids that cause chronic inflammatory reactions. Hence, sodium bicarbonate is of benefit in the treatment of a range of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Sodium bicarbonate is a well studied and used medicine with known effects. Sodium bicarbonate is effective in treating poisonings or overdoses from many chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs by negating their cardiotoxic and neurotoxic effects.(19)  It is the main reason it is used by orthodox oncology – to mitigate the highly toxic effects of chemotherapy.

Sodium bicarbonate possesses the property of absorbing heavy
 metals, dioxins and furans.
 Comparison of cancer tissue with
 healthy tissue from the same person shows that the cancer tissue
 has a much higher concentration of toxic chemicals, pesticides, etc.

Sodium bicarbonate intravenous infusion is indicated in the treatment of metabolic acidosis, which may occur in severe renal disease, uncontrolled diabetes, and circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe dehydration, extracorporeal circulation of blood, cardiac arrest, tonsillar herniation due to cerebral edema, severe primary lactic acidosis and hyponatremia due to excessive or over-exercise.  During heavy exercise, if the the resulting lactic acid is not adsorbed by the collagen fibers, the specific acid catchers of the body, the blood pH will drop and the body will go into a coma and the person will die. 

The total collection of these fibers is the largest organ of the body called SCHADE, the colloidal connective tissue organ. NO liquid exchange occurs between the blood and the parenchyma cells, or in reverse, unless it passes through this connective tissue organ. This organ connects and holds everything in our bodies in place. This organ is composed of ligaments, tendons, sinew, and the finer fibers that become the scaffolding that holds every single cell in our bodies in place. When acids are stored in this organ, which includes the muscles, inflammation or edema and pain develop. The production of lactic acid is increased with excessive exercise and the ingestion of milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, ice cream, high sugar fruit and starchy root vegetables like potatoes. 

That is why I have stated, “acid is pain and pain is acid or acid is edema and edema is pain”.  You cannot have one without the other. This is the beginning of latent tissue acidosis leading to irritation, inflammation, edema and degeneration of the cells, tissues and organs and eventual or sudden death.  It is why we are seeing so many amateur and professional atheletes pass out and die on the playing fields.  Metabolic, respiratory and gastrointestinal acids can and do kill and death can be overted by simply maintaining the alkaline design of the body fluids with protective hydration of alkaine sodium bicarbonate fluids.  

The acid/alkaline balance is one of the most overlooked aspects of diagnostic medicine. In general, the world population is heavily acidic, excepting alkalarian vegans (those who ingest raw, organic green fruit, vegetables, mineral salts, alkaline water and unsaturated seed and nut oils), and even their bodies have to face increasing levels of environmental toxic exposure, which may contribute to an acidic pH condition of the blood and then tissues.

With over 30 years of research and testing over 100,000 individual samples of blood and over 100,000 samples of urine and saliva, I have come to the conclusion that the human body is an acid producing organism by function – yet, it is an alkaline organism by design. Eating animal protein, especially meat and cheese, sugar, fermented foods, starchy foods like potatoes, acidic water, alcohol, coffee, tea, chocolate,  and excessive exercise or under-exercise, obsessive behaviors, lack of rest, lack of sunshine, and emotional stress are deadly acidic lifestyle choices.

All enervation, under-performance, sensitivity, irritation, inflammation, edema, catarrh, induration, ulcerations, degeneration, aging and cancerous conditions are caused by a four letter word – ACID, which is an acronym which stands for:

A = acidic food and drink, attitudes and activities,
C = compromised internal acidic environment,
I = illness and dis-ease, and,
D = desire for more acidic foods, drinks, attitudes and activities, and the cycle repeats itself. 

We ingest acidic medicines to lessen the symptoms of our illness. We stimulate the body with unhealthy forms of energy providing quick, often temporary relief from our symptoms which begins the cycle all over again creating a very powerful pattern of poor health and dis-ease.

Bottom line – the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is a low acid producing diet and lifestyle that focuses on the foundational principal that the body is alkaline by design and yet acidic by function. This make this program the ultimate program for preventing and reversing aging and the onset of sickness and dis-ease. I would say that the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is the perfect diet and lifestyle for a longer healthier life.(20)
