Acidity vs. Alkalinity: The 30 Year Great Lie

Acidity vs. Alkalinity Life and Death

01.13.2013

The Pharmaceutical industry and those that work for them , the medical people, have an agenda. They have to make billions this year and every year and most of the medical doctors have houses and boats and beautiful cars to support. So they have muddied the water concerning health in many areas and created sickness and death. Acidity and Alkalinity is one of their areas of deception. Anything they can do to help people be sick, without being caught, is what the pharmaceuticals push and not all doctors, but many of them do too. Some of them write books and pretend to be alternate health people.

But in each area that they use against man, the truth is evident and easy to find, but the Big Pharma and the medical people push the lies knowing that the vast majority of mankind will never question their lies. Although everyone knows doctors are just men, still they are revered and believed almost as if they are gods. Our Church wants to bring the facts to mankind, so the question is, will you believe them or will you take some time to check out what we say?


You may remember a few months ago when Kim Tinkham was interview by Oprah on the Oprah Winfrey's television show. Kim became famous after being questioned by Oprah concerning the Secrets movie mainly because Kim stated that the Secrets movie had encouraged her to go follow the teachings of Robert O. Young who continues to push the alkaline theory. Well it is very sad to report that Kim Tinkham has died of that breast cancer that she was trying to handle with the alkaline health theory. Because of all those who email and call me, I have known of others who died while on the alkaline health theory. [ 3 ]

Now, Mark and I want to talk to you about Acidity vs. Alkalinity. Don't believe us. We don't want you too. Check out what we say. The data is on the internet and we reference most of what we say and you can find references to most anything we say. Be careful that you don't go to sites that promote the Acid-Alkaline theory without showing you actual scientific references of their theory. Use Google and enter anything you want to look up but look for the scientific information. If you read on you will understand how the body's acid-alkaline system works and you will see that it cannot be changed. You will see how pathogens that cause disease live in the body. You will see how the actual functions and the chemistry of the body allows for only one factual truth. There simply is no way around the facts.

We are just looking to show facts and not trying to defend any certain dietary way of life. There is a lot of debate among the alternate health community in regard to regulating the pH of the body, i.e. to make it alkaline or acidic. We want to show a little bit about how amazing the body is and how exacting it remains concerning pH . The only time the body is completely alkaline is when it is dead! The reason is there is NO OXYGEN because the respiratory system has stopped.

(pH is a math figure telling if a condition is acid or alkaline. The figure 7 represents a neutral point that is neither acid nor alkaline. All figures below 7 are acid and all figures above 7 are alkaline.)

The body maintains proper pH in the blood by a complex system of Oxidation and the chemical carbonate (CO2 and other chemicals) . You will breathe out either more or less CO2, depending on whether the blood is being pushed in an alkaline or acid direction. Basically, when your blood is being led in an acidic direction, your breathing increases to release more CO2. When the system is being led in an alkaline direction, for example when one is lying down, the body can regulate by slower breathing, but mainly it will begin to add excess alkalinity to the urine. Your urine becomes alkaline in the face of excess alkaline foods. But eating a lot of alkaline foods changes nothing else. The alkalinity in the entire rest of the body does not change at all. But don't take our word for it; just follow the basics given here. It cannot be otherwise.

Each organ of your body maintains an exact pH of somewhere close to the pH of blood. There is no large variation, nothing varies more than 1% up or down. Each organ is maintained at the exact pH that is necessary to do its function in the body. This pH level cannot be changed without changing the function of the organ.

The body works hard to maintain a normal blood pH between 7.35 and 7.45, a fairly tight range. And pretty much nothing you do is going to change that. So you can't really acidify or alkalize your body. Your body requires a rather tight pH in the blood (and equally tight, though slightly varying pH in other systems). If you acidify or alkalize your blood, you will quickly run into some serious issues, regardless of which way you take it, that is if you could, but you simply can't acidify or alkalize your blood as the body prevents that from happening.

It doesn't change things when you eat highly alkaline foods or when you eat highly acid foods. Your upper and lower stomach works on the foods and adds hydrochloric acid until all of the alkaline is neutralized and becomes acidic and is broken down for digestion and until the acid foods are broken down as well. You simply cannot make your stomach alkaline. This is nature at work making it so that you can eat almost any kind of food and still survive.

There are probably 100 sites that tell us that the blood must be maintained at a pH of between 7.35 and 7.45 (see next paragraph for explanation of pH). That is a well-known fact. Nobody or no site disputes this because there is too much science behind that data. There are probably that many sites that will also talk about how the blood must be maintained at an acid-alkaline balance and that it is important that you eat to maintain that balance.

This is where they show that they do not know what they are talking about .

There is no acid-alkaline balance of the blood. (pH is the measurement of acidity- alkalinity of liquids. The neutral point of pH is 7. Below 7 is acidic and above 7 is alkaline.) Again, look it up, just put pH in the search engine (Google or others). [ 1 ] The blood is not maintained at an acid-alkaline balanced condition but rather at the alkaline figure of 7.4 and it can change only .05 pH up or down; that's less than 1%. And it stays that way no matter what you eat. [ 4 ] You cannot change it by eating anything, except maybe some kind of poison, but in that case you would be dead. And if you did create an acid-alkaline balance in the blood you would be dead in minutes. An acid-alkaline balance is where the blood would have acidity balanced against alkalinity. In other words the blood would have to be maintained at exactly 7. That is the only point where there is acidity on one side and alkalinity on the other side giving you an acid-alkaline balance. But again, if the blood were reduced to pH 7 it would kill you or make you awful sick. [ 5 ][ 2 ]

You see, the blood is still alkaline on both sides of pH 7.4. For example, 7.2 which is below 7.4 is still an alkaline pH number. And so would the number 7.1 also be alkaline. Likewise 7.5 which is above 7.4 would also be alkaline. So the blood is maintained at an exact slightly alkaline pH of 7.4 and there is no acid here that would create an acid-alkaline balance. It is not balanced against acidity at all. [Again just put blood pH into any search engine.]

Hypochlorous acid , (not the same as stomach acid) which is that acid that the body creates to kill diseases, is ineffective at anything higher than pH of 8, but that is rather a moot point as the body never gets to a pH of 8. However hypochlorous acid still works at the alkaline level of the blood, which is pH 7.4, and it works on all the lower pH levels of the body. Actually, hypochlorous acid works best at the lower pH levels below 7. [ 6 ] MMS works from the alkaline pH level of 8 and down to the lowest acid pH level in the body.

Remember acids and alkalinity are opposites and they destroy one another. But tell me what thing in the body would you change to an alkaline pH or make it more alkaline ? Remember everything below 7 is acidic. The saliva is normally acidic but it can be changed by what you eat to alkaline for a few minutes, the stomach is 4 to 6.5 pH, the lower stomach is 1.5 to 4 pH, the small intestines are 4 to 6 pH except when you eat something and when the food enters the small intestines the pancreas releases an enzyme that changes the food to alkaline (above 7). So that always happens, but by the time the waste gets to the large intestines (the colon) it is again acidic. The small intestines are again acidic as soon as the waste passes through and the food is adsorbed into the body. [ 7 ]

So, all of these would quit working if you forced them to be alkaline including the small intestines. So what are we going to make alkaline or more alkaline? In the alkaline theory if you have cancer you can kill it with alkali. But you can't change the blood so how are you going to get the alkaline stuff to the cancer. You can drink alkaline water and stuff baking soda down until your digestive system quits working, but you still won't change the pH of the blood. So you see? The logic just isn't there. The blood, the skin, the body tissues and every organ is fixed at a certain pH and you just can't change them by eating differently, and if you could change them, you just might kill yourself. Nature made the body that way, the pH of each organ is what it is supposed to be to do its job and the automatic system of the body maintains it that way. [ 8 ] [ 9 ]

You could use intravenous (IV) injection to have your veins carry the baking soda (alkalinity) to the cancer if you so desired, but the baking soda doesn't make your blood alkaline. The baking soda doesn't penetrate the red blood cells or the white blood cells. But we have heard where the cancer was injected with baking soda and it help overcome the cancer. We wouldn't say don't try. But when putting baking soda into the veins, be sure you know exactly what you are doing because you can kill someone by using baking soda in the veins. It causes bubbles in the blood that can kill you. The millions of little bubbles that baking soda creates to cause the cake to rise, can also cause problems with the blood.

The pH of the skin and tissues is about the same as blood, and why wouldn't they be, they are serviced by the blood. The organs of the body maintain a pH of about the same as blood or very close to blood. Everything is either alkaline, the same as the blood, but no more than 1% different than the blood and the body maintains it that way, except of course the digestive system which is mostly acidic. It must remain acidic as it will not work otherwise. The fact is all of the body except the digestive system is slightly alkaline already, and it cannot be changed. [ 8 ] [ 9 ]

So you can eat vegetables, eat meat, drink Coke, smoke a cigarette, and have an ice cream sundae an
