Acid rain is an environmental poison spewed by coal-fired electricity plants. It erodes the exterior environment, destroying rocks, plants and animals. Relics from the early history of man, such as symbols scratched into the surface of cliffs (petroglyphs) are being lost faster than they can be preserved. Acid rain also kills and weakens plants, trees and animals. People develop breathing problems from exposure to these toxins as well as other illnesses.
Similar destruction occurs in the interior environment of plants and animals when acidity is introduced and accumulated. Complex, specifically constructed molecules that perform crucial functions are broken and not reproduced or repaired effectively. This introduces disorder, ineffectiveness and breakdown into the next generation – the lean, mean fighting machine isn’t quite so good as it was.
Each cell, structure in each cell, and biologically active molecule must be rebuilt many times over the lifetime of a plant or animal. The easier for the body to provide the ideal non-acidic environment for this reproduction, the more efficient the resulting cells communicate, perform, and utilize energy released from the breakdown of food. In short, aging is slowed.
Ways that acid by-products are introduced, accumulate and are removed from your internal environment are through:
Diet – main source of acid forming compounds
Water – dissolved elements may make this an acid contributor
Air – pollution and acid to you while you breathe
Exercise – stokes the fires of metabolism and hastens the removal
Transformation and Elimination – Only way acidic compounds are taken out. If the removal rate is less than the input rate, acidic compounds accumulate.
Diet – acidic foods are what’s for dinner, lunch, and breakfast in the United States. According to the Alkaline/Acidic Food Chart issued in Back to the House of Health by Shelley Redford Young, typical meals throughout a day are compromised of foods that result in acidic residue in the body. In this listing the positive numbers are alkaline pH and negative acidic pH:
Eggs (to -22), Bacon (-38), Toast (-10), Milk (-1), Coffee (-25.1)
Bacon (-38), Lettuce (+2.2), Tomato (+13.6), Bread (-10) sandwich
French Fries: Potatoes (+2.2), Vegetable Oil (-6.5)
Roast Beef (-34.5)
Dinner Rolls (-6.5)
As you can see, the big majority of foods that are consumed leave acidic residue when they are used up in your body as energy and rebuilding blocks. The task of our body is two fold in dealing with the results of the ‘combustion’ of foods in the body:
Limit the acidity input.
Remove the inevitable acidic residue.
Why is this important? Limiting internal acidity allows cells to work, grow, and divide as well as possible. It’s proven that an acidic internal environment encourages fat production to sop up these poisons. The acidic residue is stored in fat cells until it can be removed through the liver and kidneys.
By flushing this acidic material from your body, you can lose the fat that was created to store these toxins. I know this from personal experience. I lost 30 pounds in about 45 days when I changed my diet and began drinking water at the rate of 1 fluid ounce for each 2 pounds of body weight each day. By limiting my acidic food intake to about 25% of my calories a day, this weight disappeared. In addition, my doctor reported that my blood chemistry became normal. The blood fats, which were creeping into prescription range, dropped to normal. I was able to cut my diabetes medication in half. Since I’ve stayed on this diet, these positive changes have stayed with me.
When I explained to my doctor what I was doing, he didn’t understand why it was working, but he said “Whatever it is you are doing, it works, don’t stop.”
Seeing these results, I realized I had to spread the word. There are literally tens of millions of people in the United States alone that have similar medical issues as me. All can benefit from this course of action.
How about you? Are you ready to do what works for me? Would you like to confound your doctor, in a good way? Find out more from the web page behind this link: http://bit.ly/dAkZ2M
