  • 4 Ways to Eliminate Acid From the Body -

    Elimination of acid in the body.

    Very important for everyone except the deniers of acid PH in the cells of the body.

      • You guys are mistaken. Mark talks about a balanced pH diet extensively.Such as here:
        Dr. Terry Wahls diet he discusses is the ultimate pH Diet.
        Why We Should Eat Leafy Greens | Mark&#039;s Daily Apple
        Plants Preserve Muscle Mass | Mark&#039;s Daily Apple

        There are many more examples of Mark promoting alkaline forming fruits & veggies.

        These are all on Mark's list of recommended foods to boost alkalinity:

        I suggest you boys go back & read Mark's Blog to learn more about his focus on fruits & veggies,

          • Everything we eat creates acidic waste in our bodies. Many acid wastes are normally excreted from the body in the form of urine and sweat. However, this is a slow process and these wastes accumulate as they circulate around in the blood. The body attempts to neutralize and detoxify these acids before they start destroying cells.

            A long-term high meat diet accelerates the build up of acidic wastes at the cellular level. Cell function is disrupted and the body gradually, over many years, ceases to function.

            This leads us to explore the difference between a meat and plant diet and the impact both can have on the health of the body. It has to do with understanding body pH metabolism.

            The cells of the human body depend on a balanced acid-alkaline pH balance. If any fluids are abnormal, digestive enzymes become inactive, food does not digest properly and allergic reactions can occur.

            The body is mostly water, allowing nutrients, oxygen and other materials to be transported. This water-based medium can have either an acid or alkaline property that can be measured by a graduated scale called pH or potential Hydrogen.
            pH, or the degree of acidity and alkalinity of a solution, is measured on a (logarithmic) scale of 1 to 14. On this logarithmic pH scale, a decrease from 6 to 5 is not a mere change of 1 but is actually a ten-fold change, that is, the amount of acidity increases 10 times and NOT by a factor of one. A decrease of 7 to 5 is 100 times more acidic !

            Although the H is symbolic for hydrogen ion, it really indicates the amount of oxygen in the liquid media. The higher the pH, the more alkaline the liquid and the more oxygen in the fluid. The body prefers the slightly alkaline solution of 7.4 and if it drops below this for any length of time, it will suffer from a score of degenerative diseases.

            The bloodstream is the most critically buffered [ neutralized ] system of the entire body, far more sensitive than any other. Arterial and venous blood must maintain a slightly alkaline pH; arterial blood: pH=7.41 and venous blood pH=7.36. Because the normal pH of arterial blood is 7.41, a person is considered to have acidosis when the pH of the blood falls below this value and to have alkalosis when the pH rises above 7.41. The lower limit of blood pH at which a person can live more than a few hours is about 6.8 and the upper limit is about 8.0.
            Symptoms of Acidosis
            Conditions that may go undetected for years

            Stage 1. Beginning mild, long term symptoms:
            Acne, panic attacks, lack of sex drive, cold hands and feet, food allergies, agitation, bloating, mild headaches, rapid panting breath, hard to get up in the morning, heartburn (a burning sensation in the stomach and acid-tasting burps), halitosis.

            Stage 2: the intermediate disorders:
            Cold sores, depression, migraine headaches, asthma, hives, swelling, urinary infections, colitis, excessive falling hair, stuttering, numbness, tingling, fungal infection, insomnia

            Stage 3: Advanced symptoms become health problems:
            Osteoporosis, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, leukemia, all cancers, Hodgkin’s disease, schizophrenia, tuberculosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis.

            That’s what you have to look forward to if you are not changing the acid in your body.
            About 98% of the American public is acidic because of the foods they eat!
            Source Cochran, Marc: Cochran Acidosis

            About 98% of the American public is acidic because of the foods they eat! The typical American diet and way of life are far too high in acid-producing animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline-producing foods like fresh vegetables. Additionally, we eat acid-producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid-producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks. We use too many drugs and artificial chemical sweeteners which are extremely acid-forming. Eating "fast food" is also a contributor to acid-forming wastes.
            Correct an overly-acid body: by cleaning up your diet and lifestyle. Here is an example of what you can do to get an alkaline body:
            1. Consume 80% alkalizing foods and 20% acid-forming foods [ based on volume ]
            2. Reduce hi protein meats [ beef, pork, poultry, cheese ]
            3. Drink 6-8 glasses of pure water every day
            4. Drink minimum milk
            5. Eat green vegetables ( preferably organic )
            6. Eat lots of fruits
            7. Eat seed vegetables [ beans, peas for protein ]
            8. Eat raw nuts, including sunflower seeds and ground flax seeds
            9. Stop drinking sodas
            10. Get 20 to 30 minutes of sunshine exposure for vitamin D
            11. Eat smaller portions of foods
            12. Cook and eat more home meals
            13. Eliminate fast foods diet
            14. Get fresh air every day
            15. Exercise minimum 30 minutes at least four times a week
            16. Take nutritional supplements
            17. Improve your 'Mental State'
            18. Practice proper deep breathing for alkalinosis

            • I have discovered that The Optimal pH Diet is also a scientifically proven cure for Diabetes-2 & a major improvement for Diabetes-1. Actually a somewhat modified version of the optimal pH diet by Dr. Young, in his books, The pH Miracle for Diabetes & the pH Miracle. Dr. Young is a Nationally Renowned Microbiologist & Nutritionist. The mainstream medical establishment & Drug Companies attack Dr. Young at every opportunity, even tossing him in jail for practicing medicine without a license. Robert O. Young - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

              For much more on this subject, do a Google Search of Dr. Young Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome. As usual, I was skeptical so did many google searches to find this confirmation of claims made by Dr. Young. Also these people confirm that several other doctors have made the similar discoveries.
              This link explains most of the Dr. Young's program.

              I have added this information to my reference file, subject Diabetes:

              Best to all,
