QUESTION: HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO MAINTAIN AN ALKALINE PH IN OUR BLOOD, SALIVA, URINE AND SWEAT?
Dr. Young: Maintaining the alkaline pH of the saliva, urine, tears, sweat and blood is critical. Testing the body fluid pH is the most important daily measurement anyone can do to maintain health and fitness and to PREVENT ALL sickness and disease. The beauty of the pH test is that you don’t need to go to a doctor to do it. You can do it yourself. You can actually become your own doctor and manage your own health with this simple test. And if you’ll remember this rule—if you maintain the saliva and the urine pH, ideally at 7.2 or above, you will never get sick. That’s right you will NEVER get sick! The key is to manage the alkaline design of the body fluids. But, most people on the planet have a urine or saliva pH in the six or fives. They don’t manage their pH. People take better care of their aquariums, swimming pools, or spas, than their own internal body fluids. Managing the pH of your body fluids is simple. All you do is take some pHydrion paper or litmus paper, moisten it with saliva and urine and then check the color on the color-coded chart. The chart measures the pH of saliva, urine, sweat, and tears in 5.0 to 8.5 increments. Ideally, you want your saliva, urine, sweat and tears to measure at least 7.2 or b etter. Managing you body fluid pH with an alkaline lifestyle and diet is the healthiest advice I could give anyone on this planet. It is inexpensive. It is simple, and it works.
Question: WHEN THESE BODY FLUIDS STAY ACIDIC FOR DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS OR YEARS, WHAT HAPPENS TO HUMAN HEALTH?
Dr. Young: What happens to human health when you stay in the acidic zone? You get sick, tired and fat. And, if you don’t get fat, you die. When you are underweight you are living on your own body tissue. Your body is making red blood cells out of body cells. Why? Because you have damaged the root system of your small intestine with acidic food, drink, enzymes, probiotics, antibiotics and other acidic drugs. You are constantly breaking down your own body cells in order to maintain the level of red blood cells at 5 million red blood cells per cubic millimeter. In order to build muscle and bones you have to have healthy strong red blood cells. In order to have healthy strong red blood cells you have to have a healthy alkaline root system or intestinal villi with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. You build healthy blood with electron-rich green alkaline foods and drinks. When you are constantly bombarding your internal environment with acidic foods and drinks and damaging your intestinal villi, you set the stage for all sickness and dis-ease.
Question: WHEN THESE LIQUIDS ARE ACIDIC, ARE THEY BY NATURE TAKING ELECTRONS AWAY CAUSING OXIDATION AND FORMATION OF FREE RADICALS?
Dr. Young: When we ingest any acidic food or drink, our body immediately reacts to neutralize or buffer the acid. For example, let’s say you drink a glass of orange juice. But before drinking the orange juice you test the pH of your saliva. After drinking the orange juice you test your saliva pH again. You would think that drinking orange juice, which has a pH between 2.5 to 3 and is highly acidic, would actually cause the pH of your saliva to go down. But it does not. The saliva pH goes up higher then when you first tested the pH. The pH of the saliva should test out over 8. What is happening is the salivary glands are releasing sodium bicarbonate to buffer the acids of the orange juice. This is why the saliva pH goes up. If the saliva pH does not go up this indicates that your alkaline reserves are deficient. All forms of sugar are acidic to the body. Even fruit sugars are acidic. When the body is trying to neutralize an acid, it has to secrete an alkaline buffer to do so. When you ingest sugar or you drink a glass of fresh orange juice, or you take any acidic food in the mouth, the pH will sharply go up to neutralize the acid from that food. This is done to protect the alkaline design of the body. When you start using up your alkaline reserves and you do not replace those reserves with alkaline foods and drinks, you begin to compromise other parts of the body. Especially if, the daily diet is loaded with acidic foods and drinks. When the alkaline reserves are deficient and the diet is also deficient in foods or drinks that will build up those alkaline reserves the body starts pulling alkaline minerals from the bones and muscles. This causes deficiencies of the bones and muscles. When your blood is compromised from a deficiency of alkaline reserves, such as sodium bicarbonate or the elements to make sodium bicarbonate, the body will begin pulling calcium from the bones and/or magnesium from the muscles to maintain the alkalinity of the blood plasma. This is when you will start experiencing the deficiencies of alkalinity that are expressed in the seven stages of acidosis, going from sensitivities all the way up to degeneration.
Question: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE POSITIVE THINGS THAT WOULD OCCUR IF ALL OF THESE BODY FLUIDS ARE ALKALINE?
Dr. Young: When you are alkalized you are energized. And when you are energized you feel better and think better. You have sustainable energy when you are alkalized. When you eat and drink alkaline you are making energy deposits to your body, like a bank account. You are making alkaline deposits to your energy bank account and to your alkaline reserves or energy savings account. The positive benefits of being alkaline are incredible health, energy, fitness, mental clarity and vitality.
Question: WE’RE GOING TO USE YOUR TERM—WHY IS THE "NEW BIOLOGY™” SO IMPORTANT?
Dr. Young: The New Biology™ is important because it is based on a foundational health principal, that the human body is alkaline by design, but every function of the body is acidic. So every disease is nothing more than the body trying to maintain its alkaline design. So when we’re talking about bone disease, the body is taking alkalinity from the bones to maintain the alkalinity of the blood, which is the most important organ of the body. Once the blood becomes acidic, you will die. A drop from the normal blood pH of 7.365 to 6.9 will cause one to go into a coma and then die. The blood pH has a very narrow range for health and vitality. The normal healthy blood pH is at 7.365. If the blood pH drops down to 7.2, you start feeling very sick and at 6.9 you are dead. So the body will do everything it can to maintain the alkaline integrity of the blood, at the expense of all other organs and organ systems. Once we understand the foundational theory of the New Biology™, and I’ll repeat it again: the human organism is alkaline by design, although acidic by function. So breathing is acidic. Thinking is acidic. Eating is acidic. Metabolism is acidic. The breakdown of the food you eat is acidic. Everything you eat is acidic to a lesser or greater degree. The body has to protect itself. The body protects itself with the alkaline buffering system, which is currently NOT understood by medical savants. Your body is looking for energy in the form of electrons or electron-rich foods and drinks. Health is all about energy. The New Biology™ teaches us the foundational principles of health, fitness and energy and how to maintain that health, fitness and energy, for a lifetime, free from ALL sickness and disease.
Question: FOR THE BODY’S IMMUNE SYSTEM TO WORK PROPERLY IS ALKALINITY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO MONITOR?
Dr. Young: True immunity from ALL sickness and disease comes from alkalinity not from white blood cells. We were all taught in human biology that immunity is comes from white blood cells protecting us from some invading germ or virus. White blood cells provide NO immunity. White blood cells do not destroy germs. White blood cells are glorified janitors that swim around in our blood and lymphatic plasma picking up the garbage we create from an acidic lifestyle and diet. White blood cells are NOT soldiers, destroying some invading germ coming in from the outside world that would make us sick. True immunity comes to each of us by maintaining the alkaline fluids of the body. That is where true immunity is found. The first line of defense against sickness and disease is an alkaline internal environment. As soon as you put something acidic into your mind, into your mouth, into your lungs, your alkaline buffering system is engaged to neutralizing or buffer any acidic food, drink, or thought that might be present. That’s true immunity. It is found in the alkaline reserves for your body. When you have an alkaline lifestyle and diet you are able to defend off environmental, dietary or metabolic acids that would make you sick, tired and/or fat. Germs DO NOT cause disease. Acids cause pain, sickness and disease. There is a simple way to understand this principal. Let’s compare our bodies to an automobile. When you start your car, the car begins using energy. As the car uses energy is creates an acidic waste product called carbon monoxide. When you turn the car off you stop producing this acid. If you start the car again and stuff a few socks or a potato in the tailpipe the car will die from carbon monoxide acidosis. If you were to stop eliminating your own acidic waste products through urination, perspiration, defecation or respiration, like the car, you would die too. The body has a way of protecting itself from excess acidity. When dietary and/or metabolic acids are not properly eliminated they get parked on your hips, thighs, buttocks, waistline, breast and brain. The body does this to protect and preserve the organs and organ systems that sustain life. Your best immunity, to protect your body from ALL sickness and disease DOES NOT come from vaccination or medication. True immunity comes from protecting the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. Once again, white blood cells, including neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, T and B-cells help to maintain cleanliness, and in reality are just the janitors of your body fluids like an automatic pool sweep. You can support your white blood cells with an electron-rich alkaline lifestyle and diet.
Question: DO BACTERIA, VIRUSES, FUNGUS, YEAST, GROW EASILY IN AN ACIDIC BODY?
Dr. Young: Bacteria and yeast are biological transformations of what used to be organized matter from healthy body cells. You know if you leave food in the back of the refrigerator, that it will spoil. And, if you leave it long enough it will give birth to first bacteria, then yeast and finally mold. You know that food is not infected from the outside world, but is spoiling from the inside out. Bacteria, yeast and mold are nothing more than a biological transformation of matter. You can accept this. But for some reason, science has adopted a medical philosophy or theory that somehow germs are species-specific, as if they're individual like a cat or a dog. There is nothing special about a virus or bacteria. A virus is nothing more than a smaller bacterial form, from disorganizing or transforming matter. In reality, what I have discovered, through my work, is a virus, is many times just crystallized acids. When you look at bacteria under the microscope, what you are looking at are fragments of what used to be a brain cell or a bone cell or blood cell. And, yeast is just another transformation or evolution, very similar to looking at a caterpillar transforming later into a beautiful butterfly. You accept the reality that the butterfly, use to be a different form—it use to be a caterpillar and now is a beautiful butterfly. And yet this idea of attaching some sort of identity to germs has become very popular over the last 150 years. And the whole focus of medical science has been trying to figure out how to kill the virus, bacteria, yeast or mold. And yet, in reality, the germ is nothing more than a transformation of matter. You cannot kill matter you can only change matter. Because matter cannot be created nor can it be destroyed; it can only change its former function. So therefore, bacteria, yeast and mold is nothing more than a biological transformation of matter that has taken place because of an environment that has become acidic. When the internal environment becomes acidic, the body or blood cell will change. When you take water and put it in the freezer, it turns to ice. When you take water and put it on the stove, it turns to steam. Nothing is ever lost, and nothing is ever gained. The matter is still there, it just takes on a different form. This is a law of physics. When you see bacteria and yeast in the body, all you are looking at is the transformation of what use to be a body cell, a red blood cell, a white blood cell, or a heart cell, and that bacteria or yeast is the evidence of a compromised internal acidic environment. Germs DO NOT cause disease; they are the expression that the internal environment is acidic. You see, the great germ theory of medical science is a scientific illusion. The Germ is Nothing! The Alkaline Internal Environment is Everything!
Question: WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY FOR SOMEONE TO CHECK AND MAINTAIN THEIR BODY’S PH?
Dr. Young: The easiest way for someone to check and maintain the body fluid pH is to test the urine and saliva.
The best time to test the urine is in the morning, because the morning urine is an expression of what you ate and what you drank and how you lived your life the previous, 24 hours. The morning urine is not a product of the blood; it is a product of the tissues. When you measure your urine, you are measuring the pH of your tissues. If your pH is below the ideal of 7.2, and it measures in the 5’s or 6’s, you are in tissue acidosis. When someone over-exercises they can go into lactic tissue acidosis. Lactic acid from over-exercise is felt in the connective tissues and muscles. When the muscles are sore, that’s the tissues picking up the acid to maintain the alkaline blood pH. The blood has to rid itself of metabolic acids or you would die. So it throws the acid out into the muscle tissues and you feel it as irritation or inflammation. If the lactic acid stays in the tissues, it will spoil the tissue cells, and the body will go into preservation mode. In preservation mode, the body will encapsulate the cells spoiled by lactic acid, and now you have a tumor. The tumor is the solution to stop systemic spoiling or metastasis. When the lymphatic system is healthy it will pull the lactic acid out of the tissues, and eventually you will sweat it out or it will be recycled back into the blood and you will urinate it out. So this is very, very important. So remember, when you are testing the pH of your urine, you are testing the pH of your tissues.
And when you are testing your saliva, you are testing your ability or potential to alkalize your food and drink. So when you’re saliva pH is below 7.2, your potential for alkalizing your food, drink and emotions is less. Your reserves are low. You need to make a deposit to your alkaline bank account. And that would be the same with your urine. When your urine is acidic, you need to start alkalizing. You run the risk of staying within an acidic zone; you run the risk of going through the seven stages of acidosis. Starting with lack of energy to sensitivities to inflammation, and working up to ulceration and degeneration.
Question: SHOULD EVERY DOCTOR, HOSPITAL, NUTRITIONIST, HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL BE USING PHYDRION PAPER TO MONITOR THEIR PATIENTS’ BODY FLUIDS?
Dr. Young: Absolutely, they should be giving pHydrion paper to their patients so they can monitor their tissue pH. Doctors need to educate NOT medicate. My goal is to empower every individual person on the planet to be able to take responsibility for their own health and fitness. I’ve expressed my theory very simply in what I call “the fishbowl” metaphor. The fishbowl metaphor is very simple to understand and it starts out with a question. Here is the question. "If the fish is sick, what would you do? Would you treat the fish or change the water?" If you said change the water you are correct. When you put on your common-sense hat and you ask this question, “if the fish is sick, what would you do? Treat the fish or change that water?” Right off the top of your head, you would say, “Dr. Young, I would change the water.” If you ask the same question to your doctor, what would you expect? “Well, I’d treat the fish.” Because that’s what doctors do. That’s their mindset. But when you realize that every cell in the body is eternal in nature, and would live forever if you would only maintain the correct alkaline pH, you see, there would be no aging of the body. I mean, in a perfect scenario. But, we don’t live in a perfect scenario. Ideally, in the perfect scenario, the life expectancy of the human cell, that makes up all of your organs and tissues are infinite. Every day you either choose to live or you choose to die—either by omission or commission. Either you do it with knowledge or you do it with a lack of knowledge. When you have a lack of knowledge, you live in acidic state and you can end up sick, tired and/or fat. It is critical for me to tell you that, “YES, testing your urine and saliva is th e most important thing one can do to maintain the body in an alkaline state full of health, fitness, vitality, hope, love and peace.” You’ll be surprised at how healthy, energetic and strong you will get, even when everyone around you is getting sick. That just won’t happen to you anymore!
Question: SIR, IF YOU’LL FORGIVE ME. I’VE JUST SPENT TWO DAYS SHOOTING IN FISH STORES. IF THE FISH IS SICK AND THE WATER’S DIRTY, DO YOU GIVE THE FISH A PILL OR DO YOU CHANGE THE WATER?
Dr. Young: If the fish is sick and the water’s dirty, do you give the fish a pill? The answer is definitely not, because that just contributes more to the internal environmental pollution. Taking a pill does not clean up the water. You’ve got to change the water and do it in a way that’s not going to kill the fish or the body cells that make up your tissues and organs. You have to do it in a way that’s going to be healthful and energetic. And, there is a way to do this. The way to do this is with an alkaline lifestyle and diet; I call “pH Miracle Living.”

Twenty-Five Sceintific Points In Understanding Dr. Robert O. Young's New Biology

The following scientific discourse are twenty-five important points to understand concerning the creation of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) and hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach lining, the ingestion of protein and sugar and how acid/alkaline biochemistry, physiology, and anatomy relate to health, sickness, and disease.
Unfortunately, contemporary medical doctors and scientists as well as alternative health practitioners do not understand how acid/base are created in the body and the onset of latent tissue acidosis in the colloidal connective tissue or the "Schade". Welcome to the 21st century and Dr. Young's "New Biology."
How is acid/base created in the body?
1) The parietal or cover cells of the stomach split the sodium chloride of the blood. The sodium is used to bind with water and carbon dioxide to form the alkaline salt, sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3. The biochemistry is: H20 + CO2 + NaCl = NaHCO3 + HCL.
2) For each molecule of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) made, a molecule of hydrochloric acid (HCL) is made and secreted into the digestive system - specifically, the stomach (the gastric pits in the stomach) - to be eliminated.
3) The chloride ion from the sodium chloride (salt) binds to an acid or proton forming HCL as a waste product of sodium bicarbonate production.
4) When large amounts of acids, including HCL, enter the stomach from a rich protein meal, acid is withdrawn from the acid-base household. The organism would die if the resulting alkalosis - or NaHCO3 (base flood) or base surplus - created by the stomach was not taken up by the alkalophile glands that need these quick bases in order to build up their strong sodium bicarbonate secretions. These glands and organs are the stomach, pancreas, Brunner's glands (between the pylorus and the junctions of the bile and pancreatic ducts), Lieberkuhn's glands in the liver and its bile with its strong acid binding capabilities which it has to produce.
5) When a rich protein and carbohydrate meal is ingested, the stomach begins to manufacture and secrete sodium bicarbonate (NHCO3) to alkalize the acids from the food ingested. This causes a loss in the alkaline reserves and an increase in acid and/or HCL found in the gastric pits of the stomach. These acids and/or HCL are taken up by the blood which lowers blood plasma pH. The blood eliminates this increase in gastrointestinal acid by throwing it off into the Pishinger's spaces.
6) The space enclosed by these finer and finer fibers is called the Pishinger's space, or the extracellular space that contains the fluids that bath and feed each and every cell while carrying away the waste from those same cells. There is no mention of this organ in American physiology text books. There is mention of the extracellular space but not of any organ that stores acids from metabolism and diet, like the kidney. I call this organ the "pre-kidney."
7) After a rich protein or sugary meal, the urine pH becomes alkaline. Protein and sugar nourishment then react in acidic fashion in the organism by the production of sulfuric, phosporhoric, nitric, uric, lactic, and acetylaldehyde acids, respectively, but also through the formation and excretion of base in the urine. This is a double loss of bases.
8) During heavy exercise, if the the resulting lactic acid was not adsorbed by the collagen fibers, the specific acid catchers of the body, the organism would die. The total collection of these fibers is the largest organ of the body called SCHADE, the colloidal connective tissue organ. NO liquid exchange occurs between the blood and the parenchyma cells, or in reverse, unless it passes through this connective tissue organ. This organ connects and holds everything in our bodies in place. This organ is composed of ligaments, tendons, sinew, and the finer fibers that become the scaffolding that holds every single cell in our bodies in place. When acids are stored in this organ, which includes the muscles, inflammation and pain develop.
That is why I have stated, "acid is pain and pain is acid." You cannot have one without the other. This is the beginning of latent tissue acidosis.
9) The more acidity, the more that acids are adsorbed into the the collagen fibers to be neutralized and the less sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3 that is taken up by the alkalophile glands. The larger the potential difference between the adsorbed acids and the amount of NaHCO3 generated with each meal, the more or less alkaline are the alkalophile glands like the pancreas, gallbladder, pylorus glands, blood, etc. The acid binding power of the connective tissue, the blood, and the alkalophile glands depends on its alkali reserve, which can be determined through blood, urine, and saliva pH, including live and dried blood analysis as taught by Dr. Robert O. Young.
10) The iso-structure of the blood maintains the pH of the blood by pushing off the acids into the connective tissue. The blood gives to the urine the same amount of acid that it receives from the tissues and liver so it can retain its iso-form. A base deficiency is always related to the deterioration of the deposit ability of the connective tissues. As long as the iso-structure of the blood is maintained, the urine - which originates from the blood - remains a faithful reflected image of the acid-base regulation, not of the blood, but of the tissues. The urine therefore is an excretion product of the tissues, not the blood. So when you are testing the pH of the urine, you are testing the pH of the tissues.
11) A latent "acidosis" is the condition that exists when there are not enough bases in the alkalophile glands because they have been used up in the process of neutralizing the acids adsorbed to the collagen fibers. This leads to compensated "acidosis." This means the blood pH has not changed but other body systems have changed. This can then lead to decompensated "acidosis" where the alkaline reserves of the blood are used up and the pH of the blood is altered. Decompensated "acidosis" can be determined by testing the blood pH, urine pH and the saliva pH. The decrease in the alkaline reserves in the body occurs because of hyper-proteinization, (eating steak!)or too much protein, and hyper-carbonization, or too much sugar. This is why 80 to 90 year old folks are all shrunk up and look like prunes. They have very little or no alkaline reserves in their alkalophile glands. When all the alkaline minerals are gone, so are you and your battery runs down. The charge of your cellular battery can be measured testing the ORP or the oxidative reduction potential of the blood using an ORP meter. As you become more acidic this energy potential or ORP decreases.
12) If there is not enough base left over after a protein or surgary meal, or enough base to neutralize and clear the acids stored in the connective tissues, a relative base deficiency develops which leads to latent tissue acidosis. When this happens the liver and pancreas are deficient of adequate alkaline juices to ensure proper alkalization of the food in your stomach and small intestine.
13) Digestion or alkalization cannot proceed without enough of these alkaline juices for the liver and pancreas, etc., and so the stomach has to produce more acid in order to make enough base, ad nauseam, and one can develop indigestion, nausea, acid reflux, GERD, ulcers, esophageal cancer and stomach cancer. All of these symptoms are not the result of too much acid. On the contrary, it is the result of too little base!
14) The stomach is NOT an organ of digestion as currently taught in ALL biology and medical texts, BUT an organ of contribution or deposit. It's function is to deposit alkaline juices to the stomach to alkalize the food and to the blood to carry to the alklophile glands!!!!
15) There is a daily rhythm to this acid base ebb and flow of the fluids of the body. The stored acids are mobilized from the connective tissues and Pishinger's spaces while we sleep.
These acids reach their maximum (base tide) concentration in this fluid, and thereby the urine (around 2 a.m. is the most acidic). The acid content of the urine directly reflects the acid content of the fluid in the Pishinger's spaces, the extracellular fluid compartments of the body. On the other hand, the Pishinger's spaces become most alkaline around 2 p.m. (the base flood) as then the most sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) is being generated by the cover cells of the stomach to alkalize the food and drink we have ingested.
16) If your urine is not alkaline by 2 p.m. you are definitely in an ACIDIC condition and lacking in alkaline reserves. The pH of the urine should run between 6.8 and 8.4.
17) After a high protein meal, the free acids formed such as sulfuric, phosphoric, uric, and nitric acids stick to the collagen fibers to remove them from the blood and protect the delicate pH of 7.365. The H+ or proton ions from these acids are neutralized by the next base flood, the sodium bicarbonate produced after the meal. The H+ or proton ion combines with the carbonate or HCO3, converts to carbonic acid, H2CO3, which converts to CO2 and H2O. The sulfuric and other acids from proteins are neutralized as follows where the HR represents any acid with the R as its acid radical (SO4, PO4, or NO3) HR + NaHCO3 <=> H2O + NaR (Ca, Mg, K)+ CO2.
18) Medical doctors and savants do not recognize latent tissue acidosis. They recognize compensated acidosis and decompensated acidosis. In compensated acidosis, breathing increases in order to blow off more carbonic acid which decreases PCO2 because of the lowered carbonate or HCO3. When the breathing rate can no longer get any faster and when the kidneys can no longer increase its' function to keep up with the acid load, then the blood pH starts to change from a pH of 7.365 to 7.3 then to 7.2. At a blood pH of 6.95 the heart relaxes and the client goes into a coma or dies.
19) Metabolism of a normal adult diet results in the generation of 50 to 100 meq of H+ or proton per day, which must be excreted if the urine acid-base balance is to be maintained. A meq is a milliequivalent which is an expression of concentration of substance per liter of solution, calculated by dividing the concentration in milligrams per 100 milliliters by the molecular weight. This process involves two basis steps; 1) the reabsorption of the filtered sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3 and, 2) excretion of the 50 to 100 meq of H+ or proton produced each day by the formation of titratable acidity and NH4+ or ammonium. Both steps involve H+ or proton secretion from the cells of the kidney into the urine.
20) Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) must be reabsorbed into the blood stream, since the loss of NaHCO3 will increase the net acid load and lower the plasma NaHCO3 concentration. The loss of NaHCO3 in the urine is equivalent to the addition of H+ to the body since both are derived from the dissociation of H2CO3 or carbonic acid.
21) The biochemistry is: CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 = HCO3 + H+. The normal subject must reabsorb 4300 meq of NaHCO3 each day! The secreted H+ or proton ions are generated within the kidney cells from the dissociation of H2O or water. This process also results in the equimolar production OH- or hydroxyl ions. The OH- ions bind to the active zinc-containing site of the intracellular carbonic anhydrase; they then combine with CO2 to form HCO3- ions which are released back into the kidney cells and returned to the systemic circulation. Second, the dietary acid load is excreted by the secretion of H+ or proton ions from the kidney cells into the urine. These H+ or proton ions can do one of two things: the H+ or proton ions can be combined with the urinary buffers, particularly HPO4, in a process called titratable acidity (The biochemistry is: H+ + HPO4 = H2PO4), or the phosphate buffering system or the H+ or proton ions can combine with ammonia (NH3) to form ammonium as follows:
NH3 + H+ = NH4.
22) This ammonia is trapped and concentrated in the kidney as ammonium which is then excreted in the urine.
23) In response to acid load, 36% of the H+ or proton goes intracellular in exchange for the release of Na+ (sodium) into the blood stream. 15% of the acid goes intracellular in exchange for K+ (potassium) - common in diabetics. 6% of the H+ or proton or acid goes directly into the cell to be buffered by intracellular processes. 43% is buffered extracellularly as NaHCO3- or sodium bicarbonate combining with H+ or proton to form H2CO3 or carbonic acid which breaks down to CO2 or carbon dioxide to be released by the lungs. 10% of CO2 or carbon dioxide is excreted through the lungs and 90% is used by the body to reabsorb alkaline minerals and make sodium bicarbonate.
The biochemistry is: CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 = HCO3 + H+.
24) Of all the ways the body can buffer metabolic and dietary acids, the excretion of protein (the eating of steak) generated acid residues is the only process that does not add sodium bicarbonate back into blood circulation. This creates a loss of bases which is the forerunner of all sickness and disease. In the long run, the only way to replace these lost bases is by eating more alkaline electron-rich green foods and long-chain polyunsaturated fats. A cucumber a day keeps the doctor away - an apple creates more acid, leading to latent tissue acidosis.
25) The Human Body is an acid producing organism by function. Yet, it is an alkaline organism by design. Eating animal protein and sugar are deadly acidic choices - unless you want to be increasingly sick, tired and fat over time.
Bottom line - the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is a program focuses on the foundational principal that the body is alkaline by design and yet acidic by function. This make this program the ultimate program for preventing and reversing aging and the onset of sickness and dis-ease. I would say that the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is the diet for immortality.
Please remember this very important truth, hydrochloric acid is not the cause of digestion but the result of digestion. Start alkalizing today and begin improving the quality and quantity of your life today.

A Fatty Liver is Caused by an Acidic Lifestyle and Diet!


Fatty liver occurs when excess fat accumulates inside liver cells to protect it from excess metabolic and dietary acids. This means normal, healthy liver tissue becomes partly replaced with fatty tissue to protect against the acidic waste products of lifestyle and diet.
The fat starts to increase in the liver, gradually infiltrating the healthy liver areas, so that less and less healthy liver tissue remains.
The fatty liver has a yellow greasy appearance and is often enlarged and swollen with fat. This fatty infiltration slows down the metabolism of body fat stores, which means that the liver burns fat less efficiently, resulting in weight gain and inability to lose weight. However some people can have a fatty liver without being overweight.
Fatty liver is a reversible condition and often has no symptoms and does not cause any permanent damage.
The liver is the second largest organ in the body. The liver’s function is to process everything we eat or drink and filter any harmful substances from the blood. The liver commonly repairs itself by rebuilding new liver cells when the old ones are damaged. When there is repeated damage to the liver, permanent scarring takes place. This is called cirrhosis.
Most cases of fatty liver are detected between ages 40 and 60. When fatty liver is caused by an underlying condition, it can become harmful to the liver if the cause is not recognized and treated.
There are typically no symptoms of fatty liver. Some people experience fatigue or vague abdominal discomfort. The liver may become slightly enlarged—which will be noticed by the doctor thorough a physical exam.
If the liver has become inflamed, there may be other symptoms, such as poor appetite, weight loss, and feeling extremely weak, sick, or tired.
The most common cause of a fatty liver is alcoholism. Almost all heavy drinkers have fatty liver disease due to severe metabolic acidosis. Other causes are toxins, certain drugs, and inherited metabolic disorders. In many cases, doctors are not exactly sure what causes fatty liver in people who aren’t alcoholics, but it has been associated with high blood cholesterol, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
Fatty liver develops when the body creates too much fat or cannot metabolize fat fast enough. As a result, the leftover is stored in liver cells where it accumulates to become fatty liver disease.
.
There are different types of fatty liver:
- Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver
Nonalcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) develops when the liver has difficulty breaking down fats, which causes a buildup in the liver tissue. The cause is not related to alcohol. NAFL is diagnosed when more than 10 percent of the liver is fat.
- Alcoholic Fatty Liver
Alcoholic fatty liver is the earliest stage of alcohol-related liver disease. The liver is damaged by heavy drinking and unable to break down fats. If the patient abstains from alcohol and eat healthy, the fatty liver will go away. Within six weeks of being alcohol-free, the fat will disappear. However, if excessive alcohol use continues, cirrhosis may develop.
.
Since fatty liver is the buildup of extra fats in the liver, it is more likely to develop if someone is overweight or obese.
Other factors that may increase the risk for fatty liver are:
• excessive alcohol use
• excessive use of over-the-counter medication can increase your risk of fatty liver
• type 2 diabetes (fat accumulation in the liver has been linked to insulin resistance, the most common cause of type 2 diabetes)
• high cholesterol
• high triglyceride levels
• malnutrition
• metabolic syndrome
.
Possible symptoms of fatty liver include:
.
• Weight excess in the abdominal area
• Inability to lose weight
• Elevated cholesterol and/or triglyceride levels
• Fatigue
• Nausea and/or indigestion
• Constipation
• Overheating of the body
• Excessive sweating
• Red itchy eyes
• Discomfort over the liver area
.
How to diagnose a Fatty Liver
.
- Physical Exam
If the liver has become inflamed, physician can detect it by examining the abdomen. An extensive history may reveal fatigue or loss of appetite as well. A thorough history will include poor diet, alcohol use and other medications or supplements.
.
- Blood Tests
Higher than normal liver enzymes may be found on a routine blood test. This does not confirm a diagnosis of fatty liver. Further analysis will look for the cause of inflammation.
.
- Medical Diagnostic Ultrasound and Thermography
Ultrasound of the abdomen (anatomical test) usually shows the liver is “echogenic,” that is more dense than usual toward sound waves. The liver can also be enlarged due to fat.
Thermography is the test of physiology and is the only test to visualize the inflammation in the liver.

- Other imaging studies may be done as well such as a CT (computed tomography) scan or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging).
.
To reduce the risk of fatty liver, make healthy lifestyle choices, such as:
• Avoid alcohol consumption
• Avoid smoking
• Discontinue drugs or toxins
• Avoid fast and junk food
• Choose a healthy diet
• Use antioxidants to protect further damage to the liver
• Maintain a healthy weight
• Increase hydration with alkaline ionized water and raw green juices
• Exercise every day
• Add a lymphatic massage and infrared sauna to your routine
