Acid or Alkaline
ACIDIC WATER - A water condition which has a pH lower than 7.0
ALKALINE WATER - A water condition which has a pH higher than 7.0
Our blood system is always working to keep itself at that narrow range of pH 7.3 to 7.45. This process is called homeostasis.
When we drink a popular soft drink like colas, which has an acidic pH of 2.5, the bloodstream does not lower itself to that level.
Rather, the sugars and other elements in the drink are processed by the blood into acid wastes: some are eliminated,
and others are stored at various locations in the body.
NEW THEORY OF AGING
Modern medicine has not been able to answer the "Why We Age? " question. Yet another theory of aging and illness has been around for a long time.
It has been voiced by natural healing practitioners all over the world, in America, Asia, and Europe . Briefly, this theory holds that aging (and many diseases) results from the accumulation of acid waste products in the body.
WHAT CAUSES ACID WASTES BUILD-UP
Bad diet can cause acid wastes to be stored in the body. A meat and potato diet, for example, can cause the body to become more acidic.
When acid waste enter the bloodstream, the blood, in order to maintain that narrow pH range (7.35 pH to 7.45 pH), must store these wastes somewhere.
These wastes, lodged in the body over decades, will overburden the whole system. Drink Alkaline Ionized water to rid the body of wastes.
WHAT CAUSES ACID WASTES
Bad Diets – includes meat and potatoes, fried food, soft drink colas, sucrose and other sugars – build up acid salts in the body.
Often these deposits, by having to be stored away from blood flow, can remain in the body for decades.
Stress – both mental and physical – can also form acid deposits in the body. Mental stress can make you feel depressed.
While the physiology, scientific connection to stress in the body has not been completely established, there exists a school of thought in psychology,
called psychosomatics, which maintains that one’s mental state will influence health. Doctors in Japan, following more than forty years of research and testing,
believe that daily drinking of alkaline water can lift depression.
As we have said before, the body uses the bloodstream system to dispose of wastes; these are removed in liquid form, and are often deposited in the lungs and kidneys.
If there are too many wastes to handle, they are deposited in various organ systems, like the heart, or the pancreas, or the liver, or the colon, or in other locations.
Sometimes these wastes are left on the walls of arteries, and over the years can spread throughout the body.
The break-down of this disposal process, especially of acid wastes, is how we define the aging process.
To slow down and reverse this direction, one must begin removing acid wastes from the body.
The best way we have found to do this is to drink Alkaline water. This water, having a pH of between 8.5 and 9.5 , will first neutralize harmful stored acid wastes, and if you consume it every day, will gently remove them from your body. Yet, since the water is ionized, it will not leach out valuable alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, or sodium.
Japanese doctors have treated their patients for over four decades with alkaline water. They believe that the immune system loses its power to throw off disease when the body becomes too acidic.
They advocate drinking Alkaline water.
Asian medicine assigns two categories to human diseases: communicable and adult. Contagious or communicable diseases are caused by viruses and bacteria.
Influenza, the common cold, aids, plagues, all fall into this category, and medical doctors are quite proficient at treating them. Adult diseases include heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, arthritis, kidney diseases, hemorrhoids, asthma, hay fever, allergies, obesity, tooth and gum disease, skin disorders, and many others.
They are caused by poor circulation, by deficient cellular activity, and by the accumulation of acid wastes in the body. Asian medicine says that many adult diseases can be treated by alkalizing the bloodstream.
Medicine of America does not attempt to remove acid wastes from physiological system; so today’s modern medicine is rather deficient in treating adult diseases even if the medicine cures the disease, if acids are not removed from the body, the treatment’s effectiveness will at best only be temporary.
