When the body is too acidic as a result of acid
forming foods, high fat, mucus forming foods,
and toxic food residues, disease and infections
proliferate. This is especially true in cases
of arthritis and rheumatic situations.
Most foods are alkaline by nature, but manufactured
processed foods are acidic. It is important to
balance each meal with 75% alkaline to 25% acidic
to maintain health.Perfect body pH is 6.4, above
is alkaline and below is acidic. It is important
that your daily dietary intake of food naturally
balances your body pH.

Disease thrives in acidity. How Do You Know If You're
The New Biology
By Dr. Robert O. Young
New Biology, most simply stated, is the fact that the
over-acidification of the body is the single underlying
cause of all disease. In contrast, the old biology,
based on the work of Louis Pasteur in the late 1800s,
stems from the idea that disease comes from germs which
invade the body from the outside. Dr. Young has found
that when the body is in healthy alkaline balance, germs
are unable to get a foothold.
Think of your body as a fish tank. Think of the importance
of maintaining the integrity of the internal fluids
of the body that we swim in daily. Imagine the fish
in this tank are your cells and organ systems bathed
in fluids, which transport food and remove wastes.
Now imagine we back up a car and put the tailpipe up
against the air intake filter that supplies the oxygen
for the water in the tank. The water becomes filled
with carbon monoxide, lowering the alkaline pH, creating
and acidic pH environment, and threatening the health
of the fish, your cells and organs.
What if we throw in too much food or the wrong kind
of food (acid-producing food like dairy, sugar, and
animal protein) and the fish are unable to consume or
digest it all, and it starts to decompose and putrefy?
Toxic acid waste and chemicals build up as the food
breaks down, creating more acidic byproducts, altering
the optimum alkaline pH.
Basically, this is a small example of what we may be
doing to our internal fluids every day. We are fouling
them with pollution (smoking), drugs, excessive intake
of food, over-consumption of acid-forming foods (dairy
food, sugar, animal protein), and any number of transgressions
which compromise the delicate balance of our internal
Some of us have fish tanks (bodies) that are barely
able to support life, yet we somehow manage to struggle
from day to day, building more severe imbalances until
there is the inevitable crash and debilitating chronic,
disturbing and disorganizing symptoms to deal with.
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!
