Modern medicine has one purpose: to make money for the pharmaceutical companies and their army of “trained” practitioners. If anybody in America wants serious health attention, they have to take responsibility, pursue alternatives and pay for it out of their own pocket.
I will quickly give you a valid exception: if one needs trauma care. It is generally and quickly available and, most of the time, life-saving. But this is a very small part of medical practice in America.
In fact, there is now very high risk in going to the hospital. Besides the hundreds of thousands of drug-induced deaths (iatrogenic deaths), there are people who check into hospitals and unexpectedly die of viral pneumonia that antibiotics can’t help. Tuberculosis has returned to America, along with drug-resistant strains. Even what appears to be an old common cold can now last for months.
Doesn’t all this make us worry that a killer flu such as that which wiped out 20 million people in 1919 could return? Old, old infections are laughing at our modern multitrillion-dollar medical empire.
The first premise of modern medicine is to avoid simplicity and cheap health solutions. Boy, have they ever done this. They have succeeded in leading the sick public to feel helpless and hopeless in taking responsibility for their own health. They have successfully destroyed what was once common sense. Old home remedies, passed down for generations, and old country doctors’ simple therapies have been traded for life-threatening trips to the hospital and thousands of drugs.
We are the victims. It’s our bodies they “practice” on. We are literally a prescription-drug culture.
What to do?
I will not debate for human immortality, but I do believe that we can live to age 100 and beyond, assuming we desert the medical establishment in favor of common sense and simplicity.
I will risk repetition; but for the sake of all, I will give you an outline that you can yourself prove or disprove. I apologize for the simplicity and the low cost. Our greatest challenge is to believe and act now. Once we go to the hospital or clinic, we are at the mercy of the system.
The health of man, woman or child is all about acid/alkaline balance. If we are too acidic, we are sick. It can’t be any simpler than this. If we become totally acidic, we are dead.
Dr. George W. Crile, a great surgeon, once said: “There is no natural death. All deaths from so-called natural causes are merely the endpoint of a progressive acid saturation.”
What do we do? Balance acid/alkaline pH slightly in favor of alkalinity. Is this simple? Yes, it is. Will doctors tell you this? No, because it’s too simple and most of them don’t know about it.
Any form of illness indicates a disturbed state of body chemistry — generally an acidic state. In fact, over-acidity is common to all degenerative diseases. As stated above, death is 100 percent acidity.
Viruses love acid. They feast on acid. Sickness is defeated and health is restored by rebuilding alkaline reserve – not with sugar-laced fruit juices or soft drinks but with fresh, raw vegetables, carrot juice and alkaline water.
Sugar, sugar products and artificial sweeteners (except stevia) are highly acidic and negative to health. In fact, most commercial foods are acidic or acid-forming. No wonder we are sick.
The more imbalanced we become (mentally, emotionally and physically), the more susceptible we are to viral infections.
Viruses, fungi or bacteria in the body can survive only in an acidic environment. Any kind of infection at all will thrive in an acidic body.
The Power Of Carrot Juice
Dr. Max Gerson saved many “terminal” cancer patients primarily with fresh raw carrot juice. What did he know? He knew to quickly re-alkalize their bodies in order to restore their health. He knew that carrot juice would correct their terminal acidic condition. Carrot juice is established as a rapid alkalizer; any amount can be consumed. Gerson used eight glasses a day of freshly prepared carrot juice for each cancer patient.
Carrot juice for children has the greatest value because it supplies vitamin A (from beta carotene) necessary for growth and vitality. It is as excellent a source of calcium as milk.
Consuming a lot of vitamin A from carrots is wonderful for preventing infections.
The Chemistry Of Alkalinity
When we alkalize our bodies, we also oxygenate and detoxify. Oxygenation and detoxification are caused by and follow alkalization.
Now you can see that alkalization with alkaline water and alkaline foods causes oxygenation and detoxification of the body, leading to the suppression of disease and the restoration of health. Bacteria, viruses, cancer and fungi cannot live in an alkaline and oxygenated environment.
The process of aging and disease is the accumulation of waste within our body. These wastes are acidic. The constant consumption of alkaline water flushes out acidic waste. Sang Whang, in his book Reverse Aging, describes how flushing out acidic waste does what the book’s name implies. Is this not simple?
So now we have added toxic waste removal to re-alkalization along with oxygenation and detoxification. This is a very powerful healing concept coupled with reverse aging.
Most young people are alkaline or should be. Aging always comes with increasing acidosis, and acid coagulates blood. Then do we need blood thinners? No, we need to alkalize our bodies. More acidic waste accumulation as we age means less oxygen. Therefore, re-alkalizing means an increase of oxygen. Heart disease is a problem of oxygen shortage. Heart patients need to alkalize with alkaline foods and alkaline water. More oxygen means a healthier heart.
No disease can be cured without the removal of acid waste from our bodies. No one can reverse aging without the removal of acid waste and maintaining a pH balance slightly alkaline. We do this with alkaline foods and alkaline water.
All drugs accumulate as acid waste in the body. Any serious treatment for anything involves the removal of acid waste.
The Growth Of Cancer Cells
The German biochemist Dr. Otto Warburg discovered the cause of cancer in 1923, and he received the 1931 Nobel Prize for doing so. In his book The Metabolism of Tumors, Warburg demonstrated that the primary cause of cancer is the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory chemistry of normal cells by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is a fermentation process that is initiated only in the relative absence of oxygen. Of course, re-alkalizing restores the oxygen and stops the fermentation process and the cancer. What could be simpler and cheaper?
When we drink alkaline water, we are drinking water with excess oxygen, not in the form of O2, but in the form of OH (which is very stable because it is mated with positively ionized alkaline minerals). The alkaline mineral is used to detoxify poisonous acid compounds.
The cause of all cancer is a lack of oxygen caused by the accumulation of waste. So even if cancer surgery is a success, tumors will reoccur because the acidic environment has not been changed. Since healthy cells are alkaline and malignant cells are acidic, drinking alkaline water will not harm healthy cells while it may destroy malignant cells.
Acidosis And High Blood Pressure
Dr. Kancho Kuninaka, one of the pioneers of alkaline water treatment in Japan, states that virtually without exception, patients with high blood pressure have an acidosis condition. He has many successful clinical cases where the acid-free high pH alkaline water lowered blood pressure over several months.
Since the alkaline or higher pH blood contains excess oxygen, the heart doesn’t have to work as hard. Another factor may be that the viscosity of the higher alkaline pH blood is low so that the heart does not need to pump as hard.
Sugar grabs oxygen with the highest priority. Most commercial foods are full of sugar. Soft drinks are not soft. They are hard killers. They’re highly acidic with an average pH of 2.5. That much acid will dissolve anything. Younger people are becoming highly acidic and are being hit by so-called adult diseases. There are no warnings on the containers. Where is the Food and Drug Administration?
Higher alkalization means more oxygen, and more oxygen signifies higher immunity. Is this simple? This makes inoculations nonsense!
Alkaline water will dissolve acidic waste much quicker because of the higher pH.
Dr. Keijiro Kuwabara of Japan has been clinically treating diabetes quite successfully using alkaline water with only one month’s use of alkaline water. The sugar count on one patient (a 49-year-old insurance company employee) came down to virtually an undetectable level from 300 mg just one month previously.
So aging, disease and acid waste accumulation are the same thing. When we are born, we have the highest alkaline mineral concentration and also the highest body pH. From then on, the normal process of life is progressive acidification. At death, we are 100 percent acid.
Therefore, the reversal of aging is the process of discharging old accumulated waste.
If alkaline water is essential to restoration and maintenance of health, what about the seemingly contradictory meaning of stomach acid with a pH of 1.5-3.5 (very acidic)? Hydrochloric acid is the only normal acid in the human body. It is specific to the stomach alone as separate from the rest of the body.
Proper hydrochloric acid in the stomach is as necessary as alkane in the rest of the body. Perfect health requires both and in proper balance.
Normal hydrochloric acid in the stomach is necessary for complete, healthy digestion. The deficiency of this acid leads to general toxemia all over the body, and degenerative forms of disease usually appear. Here again, stomach acid goes down with age — not up, as the anti-acid industry would have us believe.
Lack of hydrochloric acid (HCl) underlies all nutritional deficiencies.
Therefore, correct stomach HCl contributes to correct alkalinity in the rest of the body. When the two are in harmony, we have perfect health.
