According to some of the latest research, unrefined sea salt is actually good for your brain and especially so if you spend a lot of time in a hot environment. Your brain appears to be encased in a salty environment and floats in salty cerebral spinal fluid. Salt is constantly being pumped into this fluid. It must be replenished in the diet to maintain the optimal brain environment.
The brain is 85 percent water and uses salt for taking acids out of the brain cells. The acidity is a by-product of the energy consumed by the nine trillion brain and nerve cells that constantly chatter to one another. The energy expenditure produces acidic toxic waste that must be pumped out of the brain to be eliminated.… Read the rest
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
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
Our feet are critical for our balance, coordination and of course, walking. We take them pretty much for granted until they hurt. Then we are really aware how important they are for our comfort. Thousands of people suffer from different conditions with the feet. One of the most painful is called plantar fasciitis. This is where there is sharp or throbbing pain in the heel and under part of the foot, particularly the arch.
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common and frequently seen conditions by medical doctors and foot specialists. More people hobble in to their doctors seeking relief. The tissues on the underside of the foot become irritated and inflamed to the point that it is almost too painful to walk.… Read the rest
Meniere’s disease is a disease of balance. The person gets the perception that they are spinning or that their surroundings are spinning. It can be very disconcerting, as it is like you spun yourself around really fast, then tried to stand still while keeping yourself upright. Balance seems to disappear and the sensation of falling is very real. Sometimes vomiting accompanies the dizziness, just like the feeling you experience being on a fast spinning carnival ride. One of the unfortunate effects of Meneire’s is hearing loss. Nystagmus, which is an involuntary side to side eye movement, which usually accompanies Meniere’s can also affect vision acuity.
In the inner ear, balance is maintained by the semicircular canals which are filled with fluid and act like gyroscopes, keeping us balanced and upright.… Read the rest
According to the US National Kidney Foundation, 1 in 9 Americans have Chronic Kidney Disease. Scientific studies show that at least 75% of Americans are dehydrated enough that it affects their health in a negative way, so for those 1 in 9, it has developed into kidney disease. In my article The Kidneys And Alkaline, Ionized Water, I explain what the kidneys do in the body and how dependent they are on water for their efficient and normal function. So now what happens if you have reduced kidney function because of chronic dehydration and acidosis?
According to scientific studies, there are several causes of kidney disease, some of them are supposed to be genetic. Scientific evidence shows that 35 per cent of what goes on in the body is genetic, the other 65 per cent we can control with lifestyle, so I don’t know how much of an excuse we can give to genetics.… Read the rest
The most alarming statistics around breast cancer are coming out. “Every 13 minutes another woman dies from the environmental, dietary and metabolic acids that cause breast cancer, an acidic condition of the breast tissue that has more than tripled in incidence over the past 50 years,” states Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of the pH Miracle Living Center, in San Diego County, California.
Chlorine is a recognized pesticide. It has been added to our drinking water supplies, as a disinfectant, since the late 1800’s. When chlorine combines with organic compounds in the water (sediment) or our bodies, organochlorines are formed. According to Wikipedia, organochlorines include chloroform, dichloromethane, dichloroethene, and trichlorotheane. Other organochlorines include haloacetic acids and trihalmethanes.
Scientific studies have linked the accumulation of chlorine compounds in breast tissue to cancer.… Read the rest
