"Body pH Balance & Alkaline Water"  

OUR BODIES WERE DESIGNED TO BE HEALTHY, slender and energetic. We were intended to have smooth, supple skin and a quick, alert mind. Instead we are overweight - tired and sluggish. WHY?

Dr. Robert O. Young's New Biology™, most simply stated, is 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, and any number of transgressions which compromise the delicate balance of our internal alkaline fluids.

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 sever 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!


How do you know if you're overly acidic?

Fat is an Acid Problem!

Perhaps one of Dr. Young's most well known discoveries is his theory of the cause of overweight. He has shown that fat is actually an over-acidification problem. What does that mean? The body creates fat cells to carry acids away from your vital organs, so these acids literally don't choke your organs to death. Fat is saving your life! Fat is actually a response from the body to an alarming over-acidic condition.The solution?

What about Underweight?


At the other end of the health spectrum, the yeast and fungus produced within an overly acidic body can feed on your nutrients and reduce the chemical and mechanical absorption of everything you eat by as much as 50%. This causes many people to become excessively thin, which is no healthier than becoming overweight. Without protein, your body cannot rebuild new tissues or produce enzymes, hormones, or hundreds of other chemical components necessary for cell energy and organ activity. Fatigue, illness, and body weight changes are the results. An underweight person may loose a little more weight as their body chemistry stabilizes. As their body normalizes, they will begin to gain towards their ideal weight. Healthy bodies are not overweight or underweight. A healthy body naturally maintains its own ideal weight. You can begin to restore health, balance, and harmony to your body with ... Brand products (Dr. Young's Balance Pack). As alkalizing and oxygenation begins to take place, the body naturally begins to seek its own ideal weight.


Allergies


The toxins produced within an overly acidic, oxygen deprived body may contribute significantly to what are often called the symptoms of allergy. In addition, the absorption of undigested proteins is a major cause of allergy conditions. The digestive system is weakened, which prevents the total breakdown of amino acids - often causing food allergies. This alone may produce a wide spectrum of severe allergic reactions. Alkalize and Exercise™ beginning with organic greens products that are loaded with chlorophyll like Doc Broc Power Plants and purified, Ionized Water from one of the systems we sell such as our Jupiter Melody Water Ionizer. These products introduce oxygenating and alkalizing elements into your body - helping to balance the conditions that may lead to hypersensitivities.


Fatigue


Fatigue is probably the major symptom or complaint of an overly acidic body. The toxins produced in an acidic body environment reduce the absorption of protein and minerals, which in turn weakens the body's ability to produce enzymes and hormones. This also interferes with the reconstruction of cells and other necessary components of energy production. The result is fatigue, poor endurance, an inability to add muscle tone, and general weakness.

Alkaline Water

The most important thing you must learn is to hydrate the body with alkalizing water. Like the earth on which we live, our bodies are 70% water. Food cravings are often the body's cry for water. A thirst for water will begin as one begins to hydrate with water.

A diet high in acid foods such as meat, dairy grains, high sugar fruits and bread, causes acid wastes to build up in the body. When acid wastes enter our blood stream, the blood system will attempt to dispose of these wastes in liquid form through the lungs or the kidneys. If there are too many wastes to handle, they are deposited in various organ systems like the heart, pancreas, liver, colon, and other locations.

The breakdown of this disposal process of acid waste could also be called "the aging process". To slow down and reverse this process, one must begin by removing this over-acidification of the blood and tissues by including liberal amounts of alkaline water in the diet. Alkaline water has a pH between 9 and 11, and will neutralize harmful stored acid wastes and gently remove them from the tissues.
 

List of Alkaline Foods

Are You Getting Enough Alkaline Foods in Your Diet?  

'Your health depends on an alkaline environment, created by eating foods such as tomatoes, avocados and green vegetables...striking the optimum 80/20 balance and regulating your body's acid/alkaline chemistry through simple changes in diet can result in weight loss, increased stamina and strength,a stronger immune system and a greater sense of wellbeing.' Dr. Robert and Shelley Young

How did we become so out of balance?

After years of societal changes, millions of dollars of marketing spend and technological advances we, as a race, are now facing more dietary based health challenges than ever before. It is no coincidence that the rapidly growing numbers of cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes correlate almost exactly with the rise in consumption of acid forming foods such as sugars, saturated fats, and white breads. At the same time our consumption of fresh vegetables and essential fatty acids has decreased dramatically, making way for convenience and a generation hooked on sugary treats.

Becoming Alkaline

This is not as difficult or as technical as it sounds. When we talk about eating alkaline foods or starting an alkaline diet we are referring to consuming those foods and drink which have an alkaline effect on the body. This effect is based upon the ash residue that remains after our foods are consumed. Some foods leave an acid ash, whereas others leave an alkaline ash. Conveniently for us, our bodies have been designed to categorize which foods leave which kind of ash into neat and easy to remember groups.

Of course, everybody is different - but most of us should aim to eat 75-80% alkaline foods and a maximum of 20-25% acid forming foods.

The following guides and articles are intended to give you all of the information you need to successfully begin and maintain an alkaline lifestyle. If there are any resources that you would like to see here in the future, please do not hesitate to get in touch.  

What Is The pH Miracle?

"The pH Miracle" is a phrase that has been coined by Dr. Robert Young. It is what best describes his program for alkalizing and energizing the body back to health. In this segment of the website we will attempt to give you a full understanding of what causes the body to get "out of balance" (and the resulting sickness and disease of the human body) and clue you in on what you need to do to get your body back "in balance." The science behind this idea is thousands of years old. But science, through the use of superior technology, is able to show us some extraordinary things that we could never see before - basically a "new biology." In Dr. Young's book of the same name, The pH Miracle, he describes in detail every aspect of this new biology. We here at SnyderHealth.com will try to decipher some of the finer points of his program and help you understand your body in a way you may never have. To view a summary of Dr. Young's etiology of Overacidity and overgrowth of Yeast, Fungus, and Moulds. We know that there is a lot of reading in this section. Believe us, the short time it will take you to understand some basic functions of your body and the subsequent program for healing is NOTHING compared to the life of joy and fullfillment which can be your very own "pH Miracle."

Forget cholesterol counts. Forget calories and fat grams. Forget blood pressure, blood sugar, hormone levels, or any of the other markers of health you're used to at the doctor’s office. It turns out that the single measurement most important to your health is the pH of your blood and tissues - how acidic or alkaline it is. Different areas of the body have different ideal pH levels, but blood pH is the most telling of all. Just as your body temperature is rigidly regulated, the blood must be kept in a very narrow pH range - mildly basic or alkaline. The body will go to great lengths to preserve that, including wreaking havoc on other tissues or systems.

The pH level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. The entire metabolic process depends on an alkaline environment. Chronic over acidity corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neutral firing of your brain. In other words, overacidity interferes with life itself. It is at the root of all sickness and disease.

If that's not enough to get you interested in balacing your body pH naturally, nondestructively, keep this mind: Overacidity is also what's keeping you FAT ! The goal then - and what this program allows you to do - is to create the proper alkaline balance within your body. The way to do that is by eating the proper balance of alkaline and acid foods. That means 80 percent of your diet must be alkalizing foods, like green vegetables. (That percentage will go down somewhat once you've successfully rebalanced yourself.) In addition, high quality supplements will help you achieve and maintain pH balance.

How Important is good water in your body?

Without water, we die.  That's a simple fact of life.  But did you know that most people get far too little water every day? What are they doing to their bodies? The following is information I have gathered from "Your Body's Many Cries for Water", by Dr. Batmanghelidj and "Alkalize or Die", by Dr. Baroody. Nothing is more astounding than the human brain  Every second, over 100 million bits of information pour into the brain from various senses.  Millions of nerves from every part of the body are connected to it.  Oh, yes, the brain is 85% water.  What do you think could happen when the brain needs water and there is very little water consumption that day?  Now compound that over days, months, and years!  The brain controls the water and takes what it needs from other places in the body so it can survive.  Do you think that possibly means the other parts of the body which also need water start having problems? Water flow controls the temperature of your body When your body gets too hot, it sweats, releasing water which cools your body. When you do not drink enough water your body loses its ability to cool itself off when necessary. Your kidneys cannot be flushed if you do not drink enough water They become overloaded with toxins and lose the ability to function properly.  This means your body loses its ability to clean your blood.  Toxins are surrounded by fat to keep them out of the bloodstream.

Water helps clean the stomach, and aids digestion Other fluids do NOT replace water as a digestive aid. Anything added to the water you drink, even such things as lemon juice, tea or coffee will cause the stomach muscle to close. The stomach walls then release enzymes along with other gastric juices so that they can break down what has been added to the water. Acid reflux, indigestion, or any type of ulcer...advanced dehydration - Since I haven't had acid reflux in years because I maintain good water consumption; you may want to try drinking 32 ounces of water over 20 minutes or so if you have acid reflux or heart burn.  You might be amazed what occurs.

Drinking water between your meals helps to flush your stomach of the small, trapped pieces of food. Your clean stomach can relax and stop. Water helps clean the small intestine After eating a meal you wash your dishes and rinse them, right?  When you drink room temperature water between your meals it rinses your small intestine, loosens up the food, and helps move it to the next section of the intestine.  Water helps carry food nutrients and oxygen to every cell in your body.  Water helps to flush out old food particles and helps the good bacteria to keep the sides of the intestine wall clean. Constipation another symptom of dehydration?

In order to maintain the proper water balance in your body, water is moved in and out of the large intestine.  If your body is short of water you may get constipated.  Friendly bacteria helps the water move into the waste in the large intestine to soften it so you don't have to strain. When you do not drink enough water, your food moves slowly through your intestines.  You may become constipated and the toxins remaining in your large intestine may be absorbed back into your bloodstream. Your body cannot allow any fluid to be lost if it's dehydrated.  It will draw the fluids it needs from your large intestine.  Remember, the brain functionality...the brain controls where the water goes and the intestines are not on the highest priority list.  However, now your intestines are becoming a self-poisoning cesspool of fecal matter and hemorrhoids will just be a little problem to a more serious condition inside your body.

This is all "Water for Thought", but is so important.  Just looking at some of the problems above because of dehydration causes me to cringe.  I wouldn't want anyone to suffer with any of the above issues...therefore as many people who will listen, I will let them know about the importance of water for a healthy life.  Just thinking about it...I'm going to drink another glass of good alkaline water!  You may ask how much water I drink; half my body weight in ounces each day.
 

1. USE IN DRINKING ALKALINE WATER

Useful in improving the constitution, and regulates physical condition. Unlike tap water, you can drink large quantities of alkaline ion water without the the risk of stomach upset, but you should limit the amount you drink to 50% of your body weight in ounces.
a) Unusual gastrointestinal fermentation: drinking alkaline water on an empty stomach is effective.
b) Constipation and stiff shoulders: drinking before meals is effective.
c) Diarrhea: increase the amount, depending on the symptoms.
d) High or low blood pressure: drinking on an empty stomach or one hour before eating is effective.
e) Diabetes: drinking three cups or more of alkaline ion water on an empty stomach is effective.

2. USE ALKALINE ION WATER IN PROCESSED BEVERAGES

Compared to conventional methods of preparation, the use of ground coffee, tea, and juices are greatly economized and enhanced.
a) Tea: makes the color of the tea vivid, lessens its astringency, and makes it mellow and delicious.
b) Coffee: you can use less coffee grounds and still have the same flavor and strength.
c) Alcohol and water: imparts a mellow and delicious taste and prevents the negative physical reactions
    associated with drinking alcoholic beverages.

 

3. USES IN COOKING WITH ALKALINE ION WATER

Brings out the real taste of the food, resulting in sufficient flavor even when the amount of seasonings is reduced by as much as 1/3 from the amount used in conventional methods of preparation.
a) Cooked foods: the flavor of the foods is brought out well, and the food is tender. The taste comes out fully
    even with the amount of seasoning.
b) Cooked fish: the meat of the fish is firm and the shape is maintained.
c) Steeping, washing, and parboiling green vegetables: the green color is brought out because of the
    chlorophyll does not change, giving the prepared vegetables vivid color.
d) Removes harsh taste from vegetables.
e) Removal of blood from liver and red meats: when liver or red meats are steeped in alkaline ion water for 20-
    30 minutes, the blood is drawn out and odors are eliminated.
f)  Cooking beans: the beans only need to be steeped in water for a short time before cooking.
g) Cooking water for rice: helps prevent spoilage.

 

4. OTHER USES FOR ALKALINE WATER

a) Animals and pets:
   1) Can be used as drinking water to maintain their health
   2) Bathe in the acidic water
   3) Healthier coat of fur
   4) Less feces odor
   5) Helps prevent skin disease and itching
b) Dyeing: results in vivid colors in the dyeing of garments and other items.
c) Plants/Flowers
   1) Healthier
   2) Live longer
   3) Needs less water
   4) Won't need pesticides
   5) Extends the life of flowers

The Alkalizer - An Ionizer Water Machine
My long-time friend David Baltes was approached by the Japanese in 1994 to promote a machine which made ionized water. I didn't understand it and never heard of such a thing. I was skeptical as you could be too. Don't feel bad, David wasn't sure of it either and told the Japanese company, "No", for about a year before they actually gave him a machine for him to try himself. I was intrigued, but I waited for a couple of years and watched David and his wife, Joan, and their lives change for the better. 

Over the course of a few years (1995 to 1998), David began building his company, DBS Inc., promoting alkalized water with a water machine called The Alkalizer. He came out of retirement and had a clear vision to bring this water to the world which came from this machine. He conducted public seminars, talked with nutritional doctors, medical doctors and everyone who would listen to him. David couldn't stop sharing with me and everyone about how this water helped him and his wife. He personally experienced a drop in weight and energy through the roof. 

Joan, had terrible asthma and allergies all of her life and she had it so bad in 1995, sneezing actually caused a crack in her ribs. She also had high blood pressure and swollen feet. Amazingly enough, in just 3 months after drinking this water, which I found out was alkaline water, had changed her life.  She was off of her medication by the guidance of her doctor.
 
Currently, she's still off all medication, her allergies and asthma only returned a couple of times over the past 13 years and was short lived and her blood pressure is normal.
 
David is now 72 years old and not taking any medication, he has more energy and stamina than a 25 year old on the golf course or tennis court which are his favorite sports.
 

What happened when I started drinking ionized alkaline water?

In 1998, after I bought The Alkalizer, I was excited! I began drinking this water like crazy and then began feeling better. But after a few months, I was a Yo-Yo. I drank it in spurts.  I wasn't consistent.

It wasn't until I spoke with David about how to drink alkaline water when my health really changed!  David said, "Brad, you need to be drinking 1/2 your body weight in ounces each day to have change in your health and you will notice a difference."  "Just do it for 30 days and keep track of how you feel and you will feel the difference." 

Over the course of the next 30 to 60 days, and the first thing I noticed was my lower back pain minimized. I began sleeping sound and I didn't wake up in the middle of the night with extreme back pain or being uncomfortable. I ate what I liked in moderation and I had no acid reflux or heartburn.
 

Not All Water is Healthy Water

What I found out is water filtration systems such as Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Distilled waters are acidic, they contain no healthy benefits or minerals for the body.  Simply drinking mineral water is much better for your body because your body needs those trace minerals in water!  The question becomes, "How much is enough or too much?" And I'll get into that later.  Ok, so what do I mean by acidic water?  If the pH is below 7.0 (neutral) it's acidic.  RO and distilled usually range from pH 3.0 to pH 6.9!

And a bit of science here...every water point lower or higher is a factor of 10! So if you drink water with a pH of 3.0 to 6.9, which most likely is in 95% of all bottled waters, it is between 10,000 and 10 TIMES more acidic than a glass of neutral 7.0 water.  That is HUGE! 

Just think about this fact.  Fish cannot live in low acidic water. They will die. What makes you think drinking acidic water, void of minerals, will help you stay healthy? Answer = YOU Won't!  It includes distilled and reverse osmosis filtered waters.  RO and distilled waters are BAD for your health over long periods of time.

For those who love drinking carbonated sodas...the pH levels are between pH 2.5 to 4.5! That's up to 50,000 TIMES lower than a neutral pH 7.0 glass of water. It will take 32 glasses of water to neutralize the soda OR one glass of pH 11.0 water. With The Alkalizer, you can get alkaline water high as pH 11 and acidic water low as pH 3.0.

 This can be proven. When you have acid reflux or heartburn, drink 3 glasses of distilled water or reverse osmosis water or soda. You will most likely still have acid reflux. Change it around, if you drink 3 glasses of alkaline water, your heartburn will be gone. Try it and let me know.
 

What Makes Alkaline Water from The Alkalizer Water Different?
It’s NOT the same thing as just adding baking soda or alkaline minerals into the water. Alkalinity is important, but it's not the only result from the machine.
The Alkalizer not only purifies the water, it provides proper alkalinity and helps flush acidic waste out of your body.
The Alkalizer separates, removes, and neutralizes the acidic minerals and bacteria in the water when it goes through the machine. 
The water is one-half the size of regular water which makes it more permeable for the body to use.  This enhances the vitamins and minerals and the food you eat already taking to help them get to the cells
The Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is very low (-800 to -400) which helps to clean and detoxify the body by cleansing the Liver, Kidneys, and Colon daily.
Through electrolysis, The Alkalizer adds millions of negative electrons (antioxidants) into the water helping the body to neutralize the free radicals in the body.
 

What are Doctors saying about Alkaline Water?

Like you, I want to be sure that alternative healthcare products I purchase are backed by scientific research and examined by experts.   Doctors, researchers, and scientists who have studied Alkaline Water agree that this powerful antioxidant contains amazing powers.  I've selected just a handful of quotes from the dozens of papers mentioning the restorative powers of Alkaline Water. 


Alkaline Water Helps Many Ailments

"CANCER tumors cannot live in Alkaline Water."   
"Alkaline water is fantastic for insomnia and colic."
"Kidney and liver problems can be helped with Alkaline Water."
"Alkaline water is a savior for those suffering from obesity and many adult diseases..."
Alkaline Water: Powerful Antioxidant
"Alkaline water is the most powerful liquid antioxidant that can rebuild the immune system..."
"The main reason for the effectiveness of alkaline ionic water is that this water can neutralize toxins."
"By drinking alkaline water for a period of 2 to 3 months, the blood pressure should slowly drop..."


Alkaline Water: Health Benefits for Everyone

"It is definitely a health benefit to anyone who would use it.  I predict that the use of electronically restructured alkaline water will change health-care on a worldwide basis..."

"Through a very detailed system of testing and analysis covering 170 areas, called Bio-kinetics, I have seen the following areas strengthened and stabilized on my clients by restructured (Ionized) water...Urethra, Kidney Gravel, Lymph Vessels, Alkaline/Acid Balances, Stomach, and Pancreas.  The countless names attached to illnesses do not really matter.  What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause...too much tissue acid waste in the body!"

"...the only cause to all illness and diseases is due to the rapid accumulation of acidic waste in our body, a condition what the medical practitioner called acidosis.  Our greatest weapon against this is to create an alkaline body by daily consumption of alkaline water.  If your inner terrain is always alkaline and in balance it will not be a breeding ground for diseases."

I have been drinking Alkaline water since 1998.  Most of my life, before I started drinking Alkaline water, I had many colds and viral infections throughout the winter time.  I have also had chronic lower back pain from an injury in high school and the military.  My lower back pain is now very minimal and has all but disappeared.  I sleep very sound at night and I do not wake up in the middle of the night with extreme back pain or being uncomfortable like I used to.  I love to eat what I like, I have no acid reflux, and I eat in moderation yet I still maintain the same body weight I was in the military. I rarely workout like I used to, but I find it helpful when I do that my muscles don't get so sore because I hydrate well with alkaline water and it flush the acidic buildup in my muscles away.
