We all know that we need oxygen. It is breathed in through our lungs then “magically” transported to the blood stream where it is combined with fuel in the cells. Ultimately this gives us energy to fulfill our busy lives. A resting adult uses about 250 mL of pure oxygen pure minute, but only 1.5 percent of it is dissolved directly in the blood plasma. During exercise and work, the body uses more. The rest is transported by the hemoglobin in a metal complex called heme. Heme consists of iron complexes which transport oxygen to the cells and tissues. Through complex signaling the oxygen dock and undocks from the heme. Polypeptide chains are formed from amino acids and the metal complexes.… Read the rest
Ah, Baseball Season! Warm weather, the smell of popcorn and hotdogs wafting over the stands and our team is winning. Whether it is you playing or your kids, or maybe you’re all sitting in the stands, you all need to have enough water. Drinks like sodas, sports drinks, juice and coffee don’t cut it. All of them are acidic. None of them are healthy and long term use can cause health problems later on. You need to drink good quality water.
You probably think you are already drinking the best water. After all your local public health department assures you that your tap water is just fine. It is loaded with additives and maybe even by-products from those additives that may make the water acidic and unhealthy to drink over the long term.… Read the rest
- Getting older relates to the passage of time.
- Aging relates to the breakdown of tissues in the body.
- The outward signs of aging include wrinkles, sagging, and gray hair.
- Getting older by itself does not cause aging.Aging is the result of damage to bodily tissues by organic acids and by active oxygen (free radicals).
- Organic acids in the body break down tissues, causing aging and age-related diseases.
- Common waste products in the body include acetic acid, carbonic acid, fatty acids, lactic acid,and uric acid.
- Active oxygen (free radicals) causes oxidative damage to molecules within cells of the body.
- Free radicals are associated with a numerous diseases, including cancer, arthritis, atherosclerosis,Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes.Drinking
Exercise is a great stimulant to improving your immune system to ward off infections, flu, colds, viruses and cancers. Certain types of exercise can increase the number of white blood cells up to fourteen times their normal amount. For someone prone to infections and disease, this is good news indeed.
One of the most effective ways to stimulate your immune system is to bounce on a mini-trampoline or rebounder. Believe me, it’s not like you have to jump a foot in the air. The most effective way, is to keep your feet on the bed of the rebounder and gently bounce up and down for two minutes. It only takes two minutes to flush the entire lymphatic system of toxins and gunk.… Read the rest
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
All swimming pools need to have something put in them to control contamination. The “something” of choice is chlorine. It is fairly inexpensive and is widely used. Chlorine is an industrial left over that needed to be sold or destroyed. The industrial sector managed to convince government to put it into the water supplies and into swimming pools and hot tubs. That saved them the cost of having to destroy it. But, and this is a big but, chlorine can be dangerous and is accumulative in the body over time.
The chlorine is put into swimming pools to neutralize contamination from sweat, urine, blood, feces, mucous skin cells and other organic matter that comes in contact with the water. When the chlorine comes in contact with organic matter in the water, it forms chloramines, chloroform, trihalomethanes, haloacetic acids and other dangerous by-products.… Read the rest
