pH level in your body

pH level in your body

The term, pH refers to the potential of hydrogen which is a measure of the hydrogen ion (H+) concentration and also a measure of acidity or alkalinity. The pH scale ranges from 0 on the acidic side to 14 on the alkaline side. A solution is neutral if the pH is 7. The pH scale is logarithmic, so a change of one pH unit indicates a tenfold shift in the concentration of hydrogen ions. For example: a pH of 6 is ten times more acidic than a pH of 7, and it is 100 times more acidic than a pH of 8. You can see how a slight shift in pH can be quite significant. In the human body, pH is critical especially in your blood. The pH range that is considered to be normal for blood is between 7.30 and 7.45. Blood pH is a direct indicator of how much oxygen is available for your cells. Blood at a pH of 7.45 contains 65% more excess oxygen than blood at a pH of 7.3.4 Lack of oxygen and the resulting metabolic acidosis is a component of just about every disease we know. Nobel prize-winning research in the 1930s and 1940s by Dr. Otto Warburg revealed that cancer could not live in an oxygen-rich environment. His research provided evidence that oxygen-starved cells switch to another mechanism for producing energy one that does not require oxygen and one that is capable of surviving in an acidic environment.5 Since his original research, most disease has been linked with the lack of oxygen and the build-up of acidic wastes. Blood with a pH of 7.3 is also thicker than blood with a more alkaline pH. Acid is partially responsible for blood clotting. A lower blood pH means thicker blood that is more difficult to pump. Both dehydration6 and low blood pH are now linked with high blood pressure. In today s world, most people s bodies and blood are more acidic than they should be. This is the result of poor diet (heavy in sugar, soft drinks, excessive protein, and refined carbohydrates), dehydration, stress, and environmental pollutants. Each of these contributes to acidosis and unfortunately also to disease and premature aging. Besides the consequences mentioned above, acidosis reduces your body’s ability to absorb minerals and nutrients. It reduces energy production and slows cellular regeneration. Acidosis is responsible for hardening of the arteries and it makes you more susceptible to fatigue and illness. In an overly acidic body, maintaining normal blood pH...

Oxygen Rich Water

Oxygen Rich Water

Enagic water contains more oxygen than regular tap water. This added Oxygen varies according to the pH selected and is present in the form of alkaline hydroxide ions (OH). The body makes use of the oxygen bound in the hydroxide compound when the aspirated oxygen (O2) runs low in the blood stream. This benefit will be most apparent during exercise and physical labor. It has been written that Ionized Water “may also lower blood pressure and help the heart work less hard.” Quoted from Reverse Aging, Sang Whang. Dr. Arthur Guyton in the Textbook of Medical Physiology stated: “The first step in maintaining health is to alkalize the body. The cells of a healthy body are alkaline while the cells of a diseased body are acidic. Since our bodies do not manufacture alkalinity, we must supply the alkalinity from an outside source to keep us from being acidic and dying.” Oxygen is key to cellular health. We must keep the oxygen levels around our cells and in the blood at good levels. Acidic fluids cannot hold dissolve oxygen very well. We need alkaline fluids in our bodies to hold the oxygen. Technically speaking, the H+ atoms in an acid combine with the oxygen to form H20 (water). So the oxygen tends to neutralize the acid (uses up the H+ found in acid) but it also uses up the oxygen so that it is not available for cellular metabolism. However, alkaline fluids can hold dissolved oxygen, which is why the blood has to be slightly alkaline to carry oxygen to our cells. “Disease can not survive in an alkaline fluid. Oxygen rich alkaline body fluids are more capable of killing viruses.” There is a constant interplay of the pH of the fluids inside the cell and the fluids outside the cell. Normally, the pH of a cell is 6.5 or higher and the sugar glucose is broken down into nucleotides, which are the basic building blocs of DNA (the basic blue print of the body). If, on the other hand, the fluids inside a cell become too acidic (pH of 6.0 rather than the normal 6.5) the sugar glucose molecule breaks in half forming two lactic acid molecules which make the inside of the cell even more acidic. {1} “This is probably the main reason why acidosis results in degenerative diseases, and why raising the body’s fluid pH can result...

Why is pH important to our health?

Why is pH important to our health?

“pH” comes from French, and means “per Hydrogen,” which is a measure of the amount of Hydrogen in a liquid. The term has been modernized to mean “potential hydrogen.” The pH of a liquid stands for “potential hydrogen” and is a measurement that provides an indication of the level of hydrogen in a substance. It is measured on the pH scale, which we will look at carefully also. Why is this important? Hydrogen fuels us. Hydrogen heals us. Hydrogen is our most essential nutrient. Hydrogen provides our life force! And pH equals amount of hydrogen in liquid, so it’s a measure, if you like, of available life force in a liquid. “Nothing happens in our bodies without a chemical reaction.” Proper body pH is an important factor in good health. If any substance changes from pH 7 to pH 8, it has become ten times more alkaline. Conversely, if it has changes from neutral pH 7 to pH 6, it is 10 times more acidic. As an example, a popular Cola, at pH 2.5 is almost 50,000 times more acidic than neutral water, and needs 32 glasses of neutral (pH 7) water to counteract the consumption of one glass of Cola. (Active ingredient: Phosphoric Acid). You can now see that a change from the normal level 7.365 to pH 7 would mean that your blood would suddenly be around 4 times as acid as it should be. You would die from poisoning by your own blood. This is why every body system is used to supporting the correct blood pH. You can also understand from this that our blood pH can be affected at any time of the day by a myriad of events; food, drink, stress, pollution, exercise, or beneficially, by meditation, by drinking alkaline water, by deep breathing, even by being happy. The following shows the pH of several body fluids: Blood 7.37 – 7.43 Saliva 7.2 – 7.5 Bile 7.5 – 8.8 Urine 6.2 Pancreatic Secretions 7.5 -8.8 Gastric Juice 2.5 The human body has several complex systems for maintaining its critical acid and alkaline balance. Lungs breathe out increased amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) when there are excessive amounts present. When CO2 is dissolved in liquid it forms carbonic acid. The kidney eliminates acid through urine. The blood is also equipped with complex systems to maintain proper pH. It is essential that blood pH be...

Dr. Robert Young, Cellular Nutritionist

“The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. Indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating into marble. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. In summary, over-acidification interferes with life itself leading to all sickness and disease!” “Researchers believe that disease is caused by excess acidity in our body that weakens all body systems. Caused by our high stress lifestyles, what we eat and pollutants, it affects virtually everyone. This forces the body to rob minerals – calcium and magnesium – from vital organs and bones. Our reserves are depleted, leaving the body vulnerable to bone density loss, heartburn, indigestion, blood sugar issues, weight gain – 68 conditions in all. When healthy, your body has sufficient alkaline reserves to balance it self – and naturally resists disease. The easiest way to help your body to be more alkaline is to drink alkaline water” Dr. Robert Young, Cellular Nutritionist Robert O. Young, MS, D.Sc., Ph.D., N.D. has been widely recognized over the past two and a half decades. Throughout his career, his research has been focused at the cellular level. Having a specialty in cellular nutrition, Dr. Young has devoted his life to researching the true causes of “disease,” subsequently developing The New Biology™ to help people balance their life. In 1994, Dr. Young discovered the reality of biological transformation of red blood cells into bacteria and bacteria to red blood cells. He has since documented several such transformations. Dr. Young’s research findings have been published in several noted journals, including The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. (Sympathetic Resonance Technology, Scientific Foundations and Summary of Biologic and Clinical Studies, Dec. 2002, Vol. 8, No. 6: 835-842.) He is the author of numerous articles and author and co-author of many books including The pH Miracle (2002), The pH Miracle for Diabetes (2003), The pH Miracle for Weight Loss...
