to as the pH, is determined by the concentration of Hydrogen ions
in a substance such as water, blood or food. On a scale from 1
- 14, a pH level of 7.0 is considered neutral, 7.0 downwards is
increasingly acidic and upwards of 7.0 is increasingly alkaline.
Our bodies are alkaline by design and acidic by function. God
made the body so that both components are needed. The human body
has adapted to two types of digestion, alkaline for starches and
acid for proteins, but true health lives in an alkaline state.
do we get alkaline and why should we care? We can get alkaline
by eating certain types of food and by eating according to our
blood type. We can also become more alkaline by drinking alkaline
water, such as water with lemon or coral calcium.
The equilibrium in the body is imperative
for good health. The body's basic pH balance of acid and alkalinity
must be maintained. Edgar Cayce, the sleeping prophet, was one
of the first to let us know that disease cannot live in true alkalinity.
He spoke of using lemon water to turn the body alkaline. He taught
that when the body is alkaline, colds and flus and mucus cannot
survive. Now we know that many other diseases cannot live in alkalinity.
chemical fluctuation in any one of the number of body fluids or
functions may have strong implications toward health or illness.
For example a certain change in only of few degrees of body heat
can cause severe sickness or even death, if we don't take care
of it. Similarly pH equilibrium is vitally important. Proper pH
balance has been identified by biochemists and medical physiologists
as a most important aspect of a balanced healthy body. A pH of
7.4 is considered desirable for the human body. A drop in blood
pH level to a reading of 6.95 can lead to serious health risks,
such as coma or death.
As the sayings
go prevention is better than cure and you are what you eat. The
futurist and inventor Thomas Edison said over 100 years ago, "Doctors
of the future will prescribe no medicines, but will prescribe
food and will interest their patients in the care of the human
frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."
To provide the
best environment for the cells, concentrate your meals around
simple, "real" food, such as raw or steamed vegetables
and steamed brown rice. Fresh, organically grown fruits, and veggies
should be used whenever possible. Dark green and orange veggies
have the highest nutritional value. Research indicates that phytochemicals
from cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, brussels sprouts,
cabbage and cauliflower, as well as turnips and kale support the
detoxification processes within the body. Include these vegetables
whenever possible. Be sure that your diet contains adequate protein
to supply the building materials necessary for tissue repair.
Soy products such as tofu and tempeh are excellent sources of
vegetable protein. Soy protein is complete (containing all essential
amino acids) for human needs. For animal protein, free-range or
organically raised meats and poultry or wild game are our best
choices. Fresh fish is also an excellent source of protein.
It is best to
eat a variety of foods and rotate your selections so that you
can halt any reaction to specific foods. Water is very important
to help flush wastes and toxins out of our body You should drink
at least 8 -10 oz glasses of purified or microwater each day.
If you don't feel that you can drink that much plain water everyday,
green tea or herbal teas will give you variety plus an excellent
source of even more antioxidants. Avoid carbonated drinks.
