We’ve all seen the websites of the self-proclaimed debunkers of faux science and other myths. They explain to us that, except for the things we personally known to be true, everything we believe to be true is completely false. Almost every rumor we have heard turns out to be an urban myth when it comes to the Quack Watchers and other debunkers. And if something that they denounced turns out to be true, not another word is ever said about it and the debunking web page is quietly removed.

What quack watchers do best is plant doubt in our minds when we are trying to search out the truth about something such as a health issue. It’s easy to be a skeptic.… Read the rest

The digestive tract is central to health, particularly the intestines. If they are not in top form, lots of things happen in the body that lead to illness and disease. Besides the blood and the lymph, the digestive tract uses a large amount of water. You need approximately two quarts of water just to digest a meal. Water is also lost from the body through urination, defecation, perspiration and respiration. The body will pull water from wherever it can, but if there is not enough, certain troubling symptoms start to appear.

According to Dr. Kenneth Seaton and the book Prostate Health in 90 Days by Larry Clapp, Ph.D. J.D., allergies are not caused by allergens such as pollens, house mites, dust or other such substances.… Read the rest

Yes, you can prevent illness with high antioxidant, alkaline ionized water. Research is now showing that many symptoms and symptom clusters such as diabetes, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia and obesity, are a result of too much acid in the body. Scientists call this condition acidosis.

How do we get so acid? Every time you eat, your digested food is absorbed into the blood stream and is circulated to feed your cells. This is how you get energy to get you through the day. When the cells feed, they give off a little puff of metabolic exhaust which is very acid and is contains free radicals. These free radicals are unstable and try to snatch electrons from other cells. The toxic exhaust bathes your cells and the water surrounding them with a toxic soup.… Read the rest

There is a force that pushes the blood through your arteries to oxygenate and feed your cells. The measurable force is called blood pressure. Without getting too technical, there are two measurements to the blood pressure. When you get your blood pressure taken, it would look like 120/80. Healthy blood vessels exhibit pressure within normal ranges. When the pressure rises above normal ranges, you have high blood pressure and of course, if the pressure goes below normal ranges you have low blood pressure. High blood pressure is called hypertension.

How does high blood pressure happen? It usually starts with dehydration. I know, it sounds strange. If you drink fluids how can you possibly be dehydrated? You may be interested to know that about 70-80 percent of the population is chronically dehydrated, according to recent scientific studies.… Read the rest

Scientists at the University of Birmingham, examined the birth records of 400,000 babies. They found an alarming increase in birth defects in areas where the water is highly chlorinated to disinfect it. The problem with the water is worse in the winter time when higher turbidity rates are present. The chlorine combines with the organic matter in the water and forms carcinogens called trihalomethanes which are particularly dangerous to pregnant women.

Trihalomethanes or THM’s can be absorbed through the skin when showering, ingested while drinking or breathed in just by standing beside boiling water. They are readily absorbed by the body and pass through the placenta to the unborn baby. At critical states in fetal development they can disrupt normal development and create a defect.… Read the rest

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

Imagine trillions of little engines, one or more in each of the cells in your body, each one alight with the fire of energy production and cell maintenance. As each little engine uses the fuel provided by our digestive and enzymatic process and combines with oxygen, it draws fuel into itself and gives off metabolic exhaust. This metabolic exhaust is the free radicals that run amuck in our body. They become a grave problem because unless they are neutralized by anti-oxidant activity or anti-oxidant enzymes, they ricochet around our body, burning holes in our tissues by snatching oxygen molecules and regenerating. The process cycles continuously unless the free radicals are neutralized. This tissue destruction is called oxidative stress. As we get older, the tissues become inflamed by this oxidative attack and the signs of aging begin to appear.… Read the rest

Osteoporosis is where the bones in your body become porous from mineral loss. The lack of bone density leads to bone weakness and a higher risk of fractures from fragile bones. There are a number of risk factors that are attributable to osteoporosis including, menopause, lack of Vitamin D, smoking, steroid use, chronic, excessive alcohol intake, lack of exercise, genetics and low intake of calcium-rich foods.

Recent scientific research is showing that although the risk factors can contribute to bone loss, there is one main root cause. It is an acidic body condition called acidosis. It is endemic in North America. It is caused by our poor diets and our dehydrated body condition.

Osteoporosis affects 1.5 million Canadians and 15 million Americans and those numbers are growing as our populations age.… Read the rest

In a recent issue of the Journal of Experimental Medicine, Australian researchers have shown how a sugar hit affects the microzymas that make up human genes, altering their ability to function. Since sugar is very acidic to the body, the microzymas “remember” the hit for up to two weeks. The effect is such that the genetic material switches off genetic controls that are designed to protect the body against damage that causes chronic disease.
Researchers in Australia, led by lead researcher Sam El-Ostra, from the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute says, “ We now know that chocolate bar you had this morning can have acute effects, and those effects can continue for up to two weeks.”
“These changes continue beyond the meal itself and have the ability to alter natural metabolic responses to diet,” he told Australian Associated Press Friday.… Read the rest

When sperm meets egg, it’s not long before an amniotic sac forms to cradle the baby is a cushion of water. The placenta is the highway that transports nutrients to the fetus from the mother. The fetus receives nutrients through the placenta to grow those trillions of differentiated cells. When the nutrients are consumed, they create acidic wastes which are transported out of its rapidly growing body via the placenta. The mother is only connected to the fetus by the placenta and umbilical cord, so that all that acidic waste from the baby lands in her body. There is no blood vessels connected to this acidic waste stream to transport it to her kidneys and bowels so her body becomes acidic very quickly.… Read the rest
