"Body pH Balance & Alkaline Water"
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
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
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

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. Alkalize and Exercise™ beginning with organic

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.
Are You Getting Enough Alkaline Foods in Your Diet?
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
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.
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
everybody is different - but most of us should aim to eat
75-80% alkaline foods and a maximum of 20-25% acid forming

maintain an alkaline lifestyle. If there are any resources

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
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
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
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
a) Unusual gastrointestinal fermentation: drinking alkaline
water on an empty stomach is effective.
b) Constipation and stiff shoulders: drinking before meals is
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
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
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
c) Steeping, washing, and parboiling green vegetables: the green
color is brought out because of the
chlorophyll does not change, giving the prepared vegetables
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.

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
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
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
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.
Alkalizer not only purifies the water, it provides proper
alkalinity and helps flush acidic waste out of your body.
Alkalizer separates, removes, and neutralizes the acidic
minerals and bacteria in the water when it goes through the

permeable for the body to use. This enhances the vitamins and
minerals and the food you eat already taking to help them get to

electrolysis, The Alkalizer adds millions of negative electrons
(antioxidants) into the water helping the body to neutralize the
free radicals in the body.
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
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.
