Alkaline Diet and Anti-aging

Disease Thrives in an Acid Environment in the Body and Will Not Flourish or Thrive in an Alkaline
Metabolic Environment.

Modern agriculture and food-preservation methods have


done serious damage to the human diet. The detrimental
effects on the human body caused by acidic wastes from
processed food and chemical additives are myriad.
Byproducts of the foods we eat, acidic wastes are the
common denominator in all degenerative diseases. When
acidic wastes accumulate, they can cause organs to
malfunction and degenerate. Balancing the body's acid-
alkaline pH factor is a dynamic way to improve health.

William Howard Hay, M.D. - "Now we depart from health in


just the proportion to which we have allowed our alkalis to
be dissipated by introduction of acid-forming food in too
great amount... It may seem strange to say that all disease is the same thing, no matter what its
myriad modes of expression, but it is verily so."

Researchers have shown, supplementing the diet with appropriate alkalizing agents was highly
beneficial in elevating the systemic pH by replenishing the alkaline mineral and enzyme reserves.
Since systemic deficiencies show only in the last instance in the digestive tract, practitioners should
not wait until the signs and symptoms of poor digestion become evident. From a preventative
perspective, compensation should be made when symptoms are minimal and the anabolic pH is
below 7.4 after an Alkaline Load Test (see "Correlative Urinalysis" by M T Morter). Diets which are
high in protein, fat and carbohydrates and low in greens and raw food, stress the digestive
mechanisms, inhibiting proper digestion and overloading the immune system with incompletely
digested macromolecules and toxins. These digestive disturbances are aggravated by the typically
high intake of food additives, pesticides and stimulating foods that are common in the Western diet.
Also in a effect to solve the problem of worsening public water quality, more and more people are
turning to water in plastic containers. What is usually not realized is that virtually all bottled water is
highly acidic and missing the essential alkalizing minerals.

Anti-aging and Alkaline Diet


by Sang Whang

In order to learn how to get younger, we must understand


the process of antiaging and an alkaline diet. Handling
natural health improvement devices developed in Japan a
few years, I have witnessed as well as personally
experienced many mysterious phenomenon in the reverse
aging effect.

Being a scientist, engineer, and inventor, I have tried to


understand and explain the phenomenon scientifically,
applying the scientific principles of those non-drug, natural health improvement devices. During the
course of the study, I came to a realization of what the human aging process is about. The great news
is that, with this new theory, the antiaging process can be explained, and anybody canget younger if
he or she so desires.

THE AGING PROCESS


We get old because we are not disposing of all the internally generated wastes and toxins, and
accumulate the leftovers within our body. For our body to function and to maintain body
temperature, we burn nutrients within our cells. The main ingredients of all foods, expensive or
inexpensive, gourmet or junk, vegetable or meat, alkaline or acid, are either carbohydrates, proteins
or fats. And they are nothing but the combinations of four elements: carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and
oxygen.

After these nutrients are burnt (oxidized) in the cells, they all turn into organic acids: carbonic acids,
uric acids, lactic acids, fatty acids, ammonia, etc. Fats are acidic even before oxidation. The Chinese
word for oxygen is written with two characters, "sahn-so". They literally mean "acid root". These
acidic wastes and toxins are disposed out of the body in liquid form, as urine or perspiration, after
first being dissolved into the blood. Every element within our body was place there by the blood and
can come out of there by first being dissolved into the blood and then being carried out. If anyone
loses ten pounds by any dietary means, it can be said that most of that ten pounds came out through
the urine.

Unfortunately, due to our life styles and environments (i.e., too much ingestion, overwork, over
indulgence, not enough rest, staying up late, not enough exercise, inadequate water consumption,
smoking, pollution, low alkaline diet etc.) the body cannot get rid of all the acidic waste products that
it generates within. We accumulate these left over waste products somewhere within our body. This
is the process of getting old. To make matters worse, mixed with these organic acids are inorganic
acid minerals such as chlorine, phosphor, and sulfur that come in with most of our acidic foods:
meats, grains and root crops. We don't eat enough of alkaline diet (antiaging) foods such as fruits
and vegetables that contain inorganic alkaline minerals: calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium,
etc.

Although the amounts of inorganic minerals are small compared with the organic acid wastes that
the body produces, they contribute more towards the acid side. However, one important thing to
note is that even if one does not eat any acidic food at all, as long as carbohydrates and proteins are
consumed, the body produces much more acidic wastes than the inorganic alkaline minerals can
counteract.

We are born with high alkaline blood pH of 7.44. As we get older, the blood pH drops down to 7.35
or below. The blood pH referred to here is the artery blood pH. The difference of 0.09 in pH value
seems very small but since pH is logarithmic, the amount of hydroxyl ion (OH-) in 7.44 pH is 1.23
times that of 7.35 pH, because 10=1.2303. The hydroxyl ion is an oxygen donor while the hydrogen
ion (H+) is an oxygen taker. In other words, young people carry 23% more of the oxygen donors in
their blood than older people. No wonder they are more energetic.

Uric acid is nearly insoluble in water, alcohol, and ether, but soluble in solutions of alkaline salts. In
other words, it becomes soluble in alkaline water. Arthritis and gout are caused by uric acid
deposited between the joints, non-dissolved due to the low alkalinity of an older person's blood.
Drinking acid free alkaline water will gradually elevate one's blood pH and the gout will disappear
naturally. (More about this acid free alkaline water later)

As we live with poor waste disposal systems for a long period of time, some parts of our body build
up more acids than others, and they can clog up capillary vessels around those acidic areas. This
causes some body organs to function in a sluggish manner. We feel tired and run down sometimes
for no reason whatsoever, and adult diseases such as high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes,
asthma, allergies, etc. start to set in We simply accept these phenomena as "getting old"

Alkaline Diet
In some extreme cases, the build up of acidic elements are so great that it starts to destroy healthy
cells around them. Healthy cells must maintain a slightly alkaline pH level. Some cells change their
formula in order to survive in an acidic environment. If they are successful, this is the beginning of
cancer. Cancer cells are acidic while healthy cells are alkaline. Even if the cancerous tumors are
completely removed surgically, as long as the acidic conditions in the area remain, the chances are
that new tumors will develop around the same area. (Healing power of alkaline raw food diet)

Exactly where the left over waste products are accumulated may very according to every individual.
However, the parts of the body where wastes accumulate first may determine what kind of adult
disease that individual may develop first. Within one family, the storage places may be similar. This
may explain the hereditary effects of certain adult diseases.

Acid-Base Balance of Diets Which Produce Immunity to Dental Caries Among the South Sea Islanders
and Other Primite Races
by Weston A. Price, DDS, MS, FACD

It is my belief that much harm has been done through the misconception that acidity and alkalinity
were something apart from minerals and other elements. Many food faddists have undertaken to list
foods on the basis of their acidity and alkalinity without the apparent understanding of the
disturbances that are produced by, for example, condemning a food because it contains phosphoric
acid, not appreciating that phosphorus can only be acid until it is neutralized by combining with a
base. more

The Anti-Aging Process


Because the accumulation of waste products inside the body is the aging process, helping the body
to get rid of the OLD waste products is the antiaging process. This reverse aging process takes two
steps. The first step is to develop a good disposal system and the second step is to pull out the old
wastes from their hiding places.

The Reverse Aging book is the first common sense scientific explanation of the aging process and
"how to" reverse it. The nutrients that we deliver to our cells burn with oxygen and become acidic
wastes after giving energy to our body. The body tries its best to get rid of these acidic wastes
through urine and perspiration. Unfortunately, our lifestyle, diet and environment prevent our body
to get rid of all the wastes that it generates. Gradually, these leftover acidic wastes accumulate
somewhere within our body. Since acid coagulates blood, the blood circulation near the waste areas
becomes poor, causing all kinds of degenerative diseases to develop. The author defines the aging
process as the accumulation of non-disposed acidic wastes within the body. According to this theory,
the reduction of accumulated wastes is re verse aging. This book explains how some of the adult
degenerative diseases are caused by too much acidic wastes, and describes the various scientific
devices and methods to reduce these wastes without any harmful side effects. These devices and
methods are being wid ely used in Japan. Alkaline water makers (water ionizers) have been in
existence in Japan for more than 40 years.

THE IMPACT OF ACIDOSIS ON OUR ORGANS:


HEART

The heart
is one of
the most
alkaline-
dependen
t organs
in the
body. It is
partly
enervate
d by the
vagus
nerve
which
functions
best in an
alkaline
environm
ent. Correct heartbeat is altered by acid wastes. These wastes rob the blood of proper oxygenation
and degeneration of the heart follows. An alkaline system creates an ideal heart function.

STOMACH

Digestive difficulties (belching, bloating, sensitivity at the waist, intestinal gas, regurgitation, hiccups,
lack or limitation of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, colic in children) may indicate
vagus nerve problems and possible hiatus hernia syndrome, which can produce acid residue
throughout the system. Hiatus hernia can quickly reduce necessary hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
Without proper hydrochloric acid breakdown of foods, the foods become too acidic. (Healing power
of
alkaline
raw food
diet)

LIVER

The liver
has over
three
hundred
functions,
including
processin
g acid
toxins
from the
blood and producing numerous alkaline enzymes for the system and is your first line of defense
against any poisons. All the nourishment obtained through the gastrointestinal tract enters the blood
by way of the liver. The load on the liver is much heavier when acid waste products are constantly
floating in the blood. If the liver becomes too congested with protein acid wastes, death is imminent.

PANCREAS

The pancreas is highly dependent on correct alkaline diet. All aspects of pancreatic function reduce
excess acidity and regulate blood sugar balance. To have proper blood sugar balance, you must
maintain a primarily alkaline-forming diet.

SMALL INTESTINES

The Peyer's Patches, in the upper portion of the small intestines are crucial to life. They are essential
for proper assimilation of food and producing lymphocytes for the lymphatic system's wide ranging
nodal network. They also produce large amounts of the enzyme "chyle", which is a major alkalizing
substance. The uninterrupted flow of chyle into the system is crucial. Too much acid waste
production from acid-forming foods is a great burden on the Peyer's Patches, which lessens the
production of chyle.

KIDNEYS

In an adult, about 1 liter of blood per minute passes through the kidneys. By executing their primary
duty, the kidneys keep the blood alkaline and extract acid. Kidneys that are over-stressed with too
much acidity create kidney stones, which are composed of waste acid cells and mineral salts that
have become gummed together in a waste acid substance. Therefore, by reducing acid-forming
products from entering the body, the chances are better that you can avoid this painful condition.

COLON

The colon must be kept clean of accumulated acid wastes. Poisons collect on the colon walls and in
cases of diarrhea or constipation will harden and reabsorb into the bloodstream. Good bowel action
(complete elimination) must be done at least 2 times per day.

LYMPHATIC SYSTEM

There are 600-700 lymph glands in the body. Lymph fluid carries nutrition to the cells and removes
acid waste products. Lymph fluid flows best in an alkaline environment. When the body is overly
acidic, it slows, creating one of the most chronic, long-term, life-threatening situations. Gradually,
the lymph dries and begins to form very tiny to very large adhesions throughout the tissues. These
adhesions can interfere not only with lymph fluid but with blood flow as well. Hindered lymph flow
increases tissue acid storage. Not drinking enough purified water will also slow the lymph. Waste
products from foods that are not properly digested are reabsorbed into general circulation via the
lymphatic ducts of the small intestine. In addition, bowel movements that do not completely clear
the body of its daily poisons are also reabsorbed.

HOW NEGATIVE EMOTIONS CREATE ACIDITY:


Have you ever been so upset with someone or something that you get an upset stomach? All
negative emotions create an acidic environment. Have you ever heard anyone say you are letting
your problems "eat away at you" or "get the best of you"?

Fear is the underlining cause of most disease. It will undermine your life and your health. Fear causes
anger. Anger causes hate. Hate will consume you with continual suffering. Love and understanding
cleanse and heal the body creating an alkaline environment within you.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1. EXERCISE

Moderate exercise is alkalizing to the body. Excessive exercise (past the point of exhaustion) can
create an acidic problem due to lactic acid buildup. People who are acidic usually feel worse from
exercise because their detoxification organs are not working properly due to excessive acid in the
tissues. Yet without exercise, acid and toxin buildup are likely. The waste disposal is done in liquid
form by urine and perspiration, it is imperative that we drink plenty of water, When one is going
through any diet program, doctors tell him to drink 8 glasses of water a day. They know the disposal
is through urine, but they don't tell you what kind of water to drink. Since all waste products are
acidic, the best kind of water is acid free alkaline water. Drinking 4 glasses of this alkaline water is
much more effective than 8 glasses of regular, bottled water or filtered tap water. There are devices
called water ionizers that split alkaline minerals and acid minerals in regular tap water by electrical
means.

2. QUALITY AIR

As the saying goes - "every step you take, every breath you take ...". If your environment is polluted
with chemicals, dust, smoke, pet dander, mold, micro-organisms, then much of your energy reserve
will go just in detoxifying. Today, even in the forest and near the ocean, the amount of negative ions
are much lower than they were only a few decades ago. Also, since we sealed buildings to conserve
energy and started making our homes and furnishings with synthetic materials, the number of cases
of asthma and chronic fatigue have risen dramatically.

3. FOOD COMBINING

Food combining is key to creating an alkaline environment because when you combine properly you
reduce putrefaction in the body creating a more alkaline condition.

4. ALKALIZING DIETARY SUPPLEMENTATION

When you purchase supplements you must ask yourself what your goal is and will these supplements
actually help alkalize and remove acid from your body. Green drinks are very helpful in filtering out
toxins and acidity in the body.

5. ALKALINE DIET

Eating an alkaline diet is very powerful in making everything else work better. In general, it is
important to eat a diet that contains both acidic and alkalizing foods. People vary, but for most, the
ideal diet is 75 percent alkalizing and 25 percent acidifying (foods by volume).

The Miraculous Properties of Ionized Water

Ionized Water is electronically enhanced water created through electrolysis. It is produced by


running normal tap water over positive (cathode) and negative (anode) electrodes, which ionizes the
minerals in the water creating positive (hydrogen) and negative (hydroxyl) ions. The electrodes are
composed of titanium, the hardest metal known, and coated with platinum, which is an excellent and
durable conductor. It is important to note that the platinum is not electroplated, but coated onto the
titanium, meaning the titanium plate is dipped into the platinum. Electroplated platinum would not
last long on the surface of the titanium. The membranes between the electrodes are composed of
either pulp mesh or complex plastic polymers. Polymer membranes are more likely to warp if
exposed to high temperatures. Pulp mesh holds up to high temperatures much better than plastic
polymers.

The centerpiece of Alkaline Ionized Water are its antioxidant properties. It is miraculous that normal
tap water can be instantly transformed into a strong antioxidant. Alkaline Ionized Water has two
antioxidant qualities; its negative charge and the presence of hydroxyl ions which are free radical
scavengers. The body is starved for electrons and Alkaline Ionized Water contains an abundance of
them, which nullify free radicals in the body. Alkaline Ionized Water is an extremely effective
antioxidant because it is a liquid that has a small grouping of water molecule clusters and thus is
more easily absorbed into the body where it can be of immediate use. Drinking Alkaline Ionized
Water gives you energy through better hydration and alkalization of the body and by providing the
body with oxygen.

Because of the predominance of hydroxyl ions in Alkaline Ionized Water, the water becomes alkaline,
meaning it has a high pH. The pH level can be adjusted with a water ionizer between 7.5 and 9.9,
which is the highest pH that it should be consumed. Ionized Water is sometimes referred to as micro-
cluster water because of its small molecular grouping. Water molecules typically group in clusters of
10 or more. Ionized Water molecule clusters group together into six water molecules, thus they have
been reduced in size, which is the most natural state for water to exist in. Ionization changes
conventional water from an irregular, bulky shape to a hexagonal shape that saturates body tissue
much more efficiently. These smaller six-sided clusters are extremely penetrating and hydrating. As it
hydrates body tissue, Ionized Water pushes out all the things that don't belong in the body, which
are commonly referred to as toxins. Therefore, Ionized Water is extremely detoxifying, which is why
people who are quite toxic must start drinking Ionized Water slowly so they do not detoxify too
quickly.

Ionized Water is best consumed straight out of the tap because it is most effective when it is fresh.
Ionized Water should become a part of everyone's lifestyle if they wish to be healthy. It is the best
substance we can possibly consume because there is nothing healthier for the body than water and
there is no better water than Ionized Water.
To ionize means to gain or lose an electron. Essentially, the ionization process robs an electron from
one molecule and donates, or transfers, it to another molecule. Both Alkaline and Acid Ionized Water
have extraordinary properties and benefits, however, their respective uses could not be more
different. We consume Alkaline Ionized Water and use the Acid Ionized Water on the outside of our
bodies for acne, cuts, scrapes and rashes of all kinds. It kills bacteria on contact and encourages plant
growth. The centerpiece of Alkaline Ionized Water are its antioxidant properties. It is miraculous that
normal tap water can be instantly transformed into a strong antioxidant. Alkaline Ionized Water has
two antioxidant qualities, its negative charge and the presence of hydroxyl ions which are free radical
scavengers. The body is starved for electrons and Alkaline Ionized Water contains an abundance of
them, which nullify free radicals in the body.

One can thrive on half the normal intake of food as long as we consume high electron-rich nutrients.
Alkaline Ionized Water is an extremely effective antioxidant because it is a liquid that has a small
grouping of water molecule clusters and thus is more easily absorbed into the body where it can be
of immediate use. Drinking Alkaline Ionized Water gives you energy through better hydration and
alkalization of the body and by providing the body with oxygen. Because of the predominance of
hydroxyl ions in Alkaline Ionized Water, the water becomes alkaline, meaning it has a high pH. The
pH level can be adjusted with a water ionizer between 7.5 and 9.9, which is the highest pH that it
should be consumed. All disease thrives in an acid environment in the body and will not flourish and
thrive in an alkaline environment. more
