It is estimated that over 80% of all deaths in North America are premature. That is to say that their deaths could have been prevented. The leading causes of death are heart disease, diabetes and obesity. Because these health conditions are the result of a chronically acid body, science now believes that these conditions are totally preventable. Other health conditions like allergies, depression, poor digestion, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, fatigue, anxiety, asthma, osteoporosis, cancer, infections and many other conditions, 68 or more, all have direct links to our nutritional intake and the amount of acidic forming foods we consume.
We are a fast-paced society and to live in certain cities and parts of the world you need lots of energy just to keep up with the pace of life.… Read the rest
Use this checklist to get a sense of how acidic you may be. Determining your acidity levels isn’t an exact science, but this Self-Test can help you get a better idea of how urgently you need to begin alkalizing your body.
The idea is this: the more symptoms, the more acidic you may be, and the more urgent it is for you to begin an alkalizing program.

According to sports nutrition researchers, your muscles are designed to work well only in a narrow range of almost zero acidity. Arterial blood works best with no acid at all. What does that mean? Your body has a secret balance that is not only designed to keep you healthy, but to make moving more comfortable and efficient. That balance is your acid/alkaline balance. Acidity and alkalinity is measured by a unit called pH. It can be measured by a liquid pH reagent, by a pH meter, or by pH reactive strips.( The pH strips are not very accurate once the package has been opened.)
For example, at rest, in a healthy person, muscle pH should be about 6.9, while arterial blood should be about 7.4.”… Read the rest
As we’ve discussed in other articles, acidosis is a systemic lowering of the pH of the naturally alkaline organs, fluids and tissues of the body. Naturally, the stomach is acidic and at times, needs to remain so. The predominant terrain in the body needs to be slightly alkaline, with the blood and lymph being around 7.365 to 7.42 pH.
Although the primary cause of acidosis in the body is dietary habits, environmental pollutants, car emissions, pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, vegetable and fruit dyes and waxes, artificial sweeteners, food additives, water pollutants, contaminated soils, tap water additives add to acidosis and toxicity in the body.
Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in North America. Studies show that most of those deaths are premature.… Read the rest
