    Acid & Alkaline Nutrition:

    i read that too much acid food gives more difficulties to help inflamations, and as i have all body full inflamations nerves and muscles and joints, i am trying to eat a food more alkaline;
    until now i eat more acid food, it is changing now,
    with my bad english i found a text, there are many;

    Acid & Alkaline Nutrition: Shattering the Myths
    By: Michael McEvoy FDN, CNC, CMTA

    According to Guy Schenker, DC:

    Acid/alkaline imbalances always involve respiratory function
    Acid/alkaline imbalances always involve renal function

    "The respiratory and renal involvement in an acidosis or alkalosis may be either part of the cause of, or part of the compensation for the acidosis or alkalosis...The most alarming misconception among nutritionists concerned with pH balance, one seems to reign supreme in the minds of an appalling majority of doctors, is that ACIDOSIS is ubiquitous among the sick of this world. Acidosis, they have been given to believe, is an accompaniment to, and even the primary cause of, every disease, every pain, every state of ill health to afflict humankind.

    "Wouldn’t it be nice if it were that simple? Pump up your patients’ alkaline reserves and cure them of anything?

    "And an ALKALOSIS? No such thing? Acid is bad, this theory contends, and alkaline is good. And there is no way one can have too much of a good thing.

    "In truth excess alkalinity is just as harmful as excess acidity. To clear the confusion, all physiological systems are maintained through a negative feedback mechanism that operates in a dualistic manner. Dualistic means that for every normal condition, there are 2 abnormals-abnormally high and abnormally low. To say that there is only one abnormal with respect to pH balance is to display total ignorance of the most basic fundamentals of physiology.”
    -‘An Analytical System of Clinical Nutrition’, -Guy Schenker, DC, 1989-2010

    “In a metabolic alkalosis, there are increasing levels of bicarbonate ion in relation to H+. There are 3 main causes of bicarbonate increase:
    Direct administration or production of alkaline-sodium bicarbonate, or other antacids, can lead to metabolic acidosis. Excess bicarbonate is absorbed ad the Co2 levels begin to rise.”

    Acid-Losing Alkalosis- The loss of H+ from stomach from chronic vomiting or pyloric stenosis is a major cause of acid-losing alkalosis.

    Potassium Deficient Alkalosis-This is most often caused by an excessive loss of potassium from the kidney. Intracellular potassium will move out of the cells to replace the potassium being lost in the plasma and urine. Sodium and H+ move into the cell to replace the potassium that has moved out. This leaves a deficit of H+ in the plasma. Also, H+ is excreted from the kidneys along with potassium. The net result of renal excretion and extracellular H+ loss is an increased production of H+ to replace that which has been lost. This results in a concomitant rise in bicarbonate or Co2 levels.”

    Myth #1: It is GOOD to be alkaline, it is BAD to be Acidic

    Truth: It is BAD to be Alkaline, it is BAD to be Acidic. Most people, including uninformed doctors, naturopaths, and alternative health people throw around terms like acid and alkaline, but have very little understanding of what they are actually talking about. It is a fact that acidosis is pathological, and can wreak havoc on the body. What is not known as widely in the health world, is that alkalosis is ALSO pathological and will cause just as many, if not more problems with your health. In fact, the majority of people that I see in my practice are TOO ALKALINE. Some common symptomatology associated with Alkalosis:

    Hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid, HCL)
    Feel more like the ‘tortoise’, less like the ‘hare’
    Elevated serum bicarbonate
    suite in
    12 years paxil(9 years only 10 mg) - cold turkey(1,5 month) and switch celexa tapered 1 year 20 mg
    62 years old - for GAD - 4 years 3 months meds free [since april 2009]

    vegetables soup - orange (vit C) - curcuma - some meat or fish

    I also received information on diet acid / alkaline. Very interesting!

    Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1931 for his discovery of the oxygen-transferring enzyme of cell respiration. Dr. Otto Warburg believed that the prime cause of cancer had been well defined. He studied cancer and knew what environment caused it and killed it. He proved that cancer could be killed simply by returning the body to normal, healthy chemistry.

    “… There are prime and secondary causes of diseases. Cancer has countless secondary causes. But there is only one prime cause… There is no disease whose prime cause is better known, so that today ignorance is no longer an excuse that one cannot do more about prevention of cancer. But how long prevention will be avoided depends on how long the prophets of agnosticism will succeed in inhibiting the application of scientific knowledge in the field of cancer. In the meantime millions of men and women must die of cancer unnecessarily.”

    “Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of glucose. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are “aerobes”, whereas all cancer cells are partial “anaerobes”. The prime cause of cancer is replacement of oxygen respiration by fermentation…”

    From lecture “The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer”, delivered by Dr. Otto Warburg at the 1966 annual meeting of Nobelists at Lindau, Germany.

    The work of Dr. Otto Warburg showed that cancer was associated with anaerobic (oxygen deficiency) conditions, resulting in glucose fermentation and a marked drop in the pH of the cell -- a condition called acidosis (more acidic than normal). Acidosis prevents the formation of nucleotides, the building blocks of DNA -- the blueprint for human growth and repair.

    Cancer cells have an extreme acid pH and are oxygen depleted, while healthy cells have a slightly alkaline pH with high oxygen content. Alkaline solutions are made up of hydroxyl (oxygen-hydrogen) radicals and therefore are oxygen-rich. As pH drops, the cells’ oxygen levels also drop. Therefore, when the body becomes acidic, the body becomes anaerobic. As the body’s pH moves just a little out of the normal pH range, its ability to function properly and heal itself diminishes drastically. An acidic state gives cancer the needed environment to grow within the body.

    Dr. Warburg demonstrated that cancer requires a low oxygen environment. Whenever Dr. Warburg lowered the oxygen level in a healthy cell, it became cancerous. Conversely, Dr. Warburg found that increased levels of oxygen inhibited the spread of cancer cells and eventually caused the cancer to die. He found that when he put a cancer cell into an alkaline environment, it died within minutes. In a healthy, slightly alkaline cell environment, the conditions required for developing of cancer do not exist; it is therefore remains dormant, or dies, while the healthy cells thrive. Under oxygen-rich, alkaline conditions, cancer cells die quickly, with no damage to healthy cells, and therefore no side effects.

    This research was done over 60 years ago. Nevertheless, the medical profession continues to only burn, cut or poison (radiation, surgery, chemotherapy/drugs) the symptoms of cancer. Billions of dollars are being spent annually on the search for a drug that will destroy the cancer without killing the patient. According to Dr. Warburg, to kill cancer all you have to do is make your body alkaline by following some common-sense health rules. The research for an expensive man-made chemical drug is the wrong way to go. Unfortunately, his work is totally ignored by the medical authorities.

    Most diseases are caused by the body lowering into an unnatural acidic state. Diseases can be prevented through nutrition, but doctors and the public have very little knowledge regarding these issues. Most doctors don’t know how to alkalize a person because they only get a few hours of education on nutrition.

    When chemically understood, cancer may be beaten painlessly. You can naturally and inexpensively raise your body's pH and increase the cell oxygen level toward a normal, healthy level, thereby reversing and preventing the disease. Good health is both simply and inexpensively attainable with this knowledge.

    What Is Cellular Respiration?

    The conversion of organic molecules such as glucose and fatty acids into carbon dioxide and water within the cells is called cellular respiration.
