Drink your milk, it’s good for you. At least that is what the dairy industry would have you believe. Milk contains casein which is a glue-like substance that is actually used by some glue industry manufacturers to make powerful adhesives. Guess what it does to your body? And, in the presence of chlorine, the effect on your arteries, veins and digestive system is a clogging, gummy mess.

Federal government regulations require treatment of water that is piped to homes from lakes, rivers and reservoirs. Chlorine is the treatment of choice. It is an industrial waste product that they have to get rid of somehow. About three quarters of all homes have chlorinated water pouring out of their taps. Chlorine helps rid the water of infectious water-bourne disease but it does not rid the water of parasites like Cryptosporidium and it can cause serious harm to people who drink it and more serious harm to pregnant women.… Read the rest

Water is unmistakably required for life. Eastern medical practice is based on the understanding that Chi is just as essential to life as water. Essentially water and Chi are both “fluids of life”, one visible and the other invisible. To mimic nature and our understanding of what we see as visible, the water, has a direct correlation to the invisible, the Chi.

Chi has both energy and information like properties. A holographic theory of imprinting water by Dr. Emoto also shows that water unifies with thought and intention. It is entirely possible that water might include Chi, because both can be used as the carrier for imprinting information. Because they both are so interconnected and similar, they both need to be flowing and “alive”.… Read the rest

The food debate rages on. There are so many food choices and food combinations. Even eating styles are debated. Go down any supermarket aisle and you will see food in cans, prepackaged convenience foods, packaged foods, junk foods and everything in between.

Our ancestors were hunter-gatherers. They ate leaves, roots, nuts and fruit, just like we do. They also ate meat when they could catch it. We don’t have to go out and rangle it. We just tootle our grocery cart down the meat aisle and there it is, along with some suspicious stuff that has a “meat” base along with a number of chemicals and food dyes that are proving dangerous to long term use.

Those cave men had a pretty healthy diet compared to ours.… Read the rest

It is estimated that one third of all North Americans are overweight…that’s millions of people. Some of them are children, which statistically shows that they will probably grow up to be overweight adults. A lot of overweight adults have high blood pressure.

If the body pH of these overweight people was tested, it would be found to be acidic. They would also be found to be dehydrated. Many health complications can result from being overly acidic and/or dehydrated. This common combination can cause high blood pressure.

A recent study reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine 2001;134:1-11, 72-74, was conducted with 1200 overweight men and women aged 30 to 54. Researchers wanted to see what correlation there was between blood pressure and body weight.… 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

Asthma is a histamine response due to dehydration. In my article Water An Antihistamine, I explain how histamine regulates the body’s water supply. When the body is short of water, histamine will control where the water is directed based on priority.

Asthma, it was once thought, was brought on by stress, especially in children. Studies have shown that an estimated 75 percent of the population has some degree of dehydration, significant enough to affect their health. Along with dehydration, the majority of people’s body state is acidic due to our typical North American diet. Children love junk food which is very dehydrating and acidifying to the body which will explain why there are over 12 million child asthma sufferers in North America.… Read the rest

ABC News reports that the US Environmental Protection has come under scrutiny from the American Congress for the state of US drinking water. Congress wants to know why the Safe Drinking Water Act has not been enforced to the point that tap water in many areas of the country is dangerous to drink.

The Safe Drinking Water Act was enacted in 1974 but many aspects of the act snarl enforcement in red tape. For example the Act does not authorize the EPA to monitor drinking water in schools directly. Instead the EPA depends on the water providers for the schools to ensure that the water is safe to drink, in addition to relying on the state monitoring systems to check up on the water providers and prosecute violations.… Read the rest

The intestinal tract needs a lot of water to break down the food you eat. If you don’t chew your food properly, it will take more effort to break it all down into useable nutrients. The process of liquefying food stuffs into dissolved nutrients is totally dependent on available water in the body. Dissolved nutrients are absorbed through the intestinal walls into the blood stream and transferred to the liver for processing. The leftovers that cannot be further broken down are moved along the intestines to be eliminated. The body compacts the remnants, withdrawing some of the water and pushes it down the chute.

The amount that the stool is compacted depends on the amount of available water in the body.… Read the rest

Every day, hundreds of people have a bone density test and find out that they have thinning bones and are at risk of bone fractures. The early stage of bone loss is called osteopoenia. The more advanced stage is called osteoporosis.

When your body is acidic there are certain dynamics that happen and certain parts of the body that must be protected and kept within a certain range of pH, particularly the blood. When the blood comes dangerously close to the lower or acidic edge of its range of tolerance, a signal is given to the bones to release mineral to help the blood become more alkaline. With chronic acidity in the body, over time the bones release more and more mineral to keep the blood alive.… Read the rest
