That said, the alkaline water machine DOES have it's place, but not where you think. It's the ACID water you should be using, not the alkaline- and NOT for drinking, but for washing your hands, body, hair and clothes. It's great for disinfecting countertops, fruits and vegetables. I am not knocking the machine, just how it's used. Not having to wash our clothes with detergent is a BIG DEAL ! OK, back to the alkaline thing.
You see, skin is naturally acidic. So is any other part of your body that comes in contact with the outside world- sinuses, stomach, vagina and your whole digestive system, except for your mouth. (it can't be acidic or your teeth would dissolve). That's why the mouth is the dirtiest, most bacteria-infested part of your body. Why? Here's the big shocker folks- ACID KILLS GERMS... and guess what- they thrive in an ALKALINE environment. Candida Albicans is a nasty yeast that is normally benign in your intestinal tract which is normally slightly acidic. But when it becomes alkaline, the candida goes crazy and starts mutating into it's dangerous fungal form which grows tentacles called hyphae which spread throughout your body and organs.
Your skin is naturally acidic as a safety barrier for any germs you come in contact with. Soap is highly alkaline, which opens your skin to all kinds of problems. Even more important is the protection from what ENTERS your body. Your firewall is stomach acid- designed to kill anything that gets inside you. Like other body parts, your stomach acid serves many many purposes. Without it for example, your body could not absorb silica, the key ingredient for making skin, hair, cells and everything else. Getting wrinkles and losing hair? I'll bet your stomach acid is too weak. You also can't absorb B12 without it. Most people in the modern world have very weak stomach acid, which results in all kinds of problems. They are no longer protected from bacteria, viruses, fungus, mold, yeast and parasites. One opportunistic invader causing a lot of problems is H. Pylori (helicobacter Pylori bacteria), a nasty corkscrew-shaped organism that literally drills itself into your stomach wall and starts emitting a powerful ALKALINE ammonia to neutralize the stomach acid so it can thrive. Did you hear that alkaline fans? The bacteria WANTS you to be alkaline so it can grow, leading to ulcers and possible deadly diseases. Our friendly probiotic intestinal flora (the "good" bacteria) on the other hand produces lactic and acetic ACID to make the gut more acidic to keep the candida yeast under control. Hmmm. Think about that. The good guys produce acid and the bad guys produce alkaline ammonia.
Acids are not bad. In fact, you couldn't exist without them. Your entire body is made of Amino ACIDS. They make protein. They fuel things. They regulate stuff. Every bodily function you have and the 60 trillion cells are made of and are run by some kind of acid. Scientific tests have shown over and over that when a warm gooey wet environment like the inside of your body becomes somewhat alkaline, that bacteria, fungus, mold and parasites start to grow like crazy. And when the environment becomes acidic, the growth gene in Candida Albicans for example is shut off and it becomes dormant. There are many scientific references included at the bottom of this report if you want more proof. Yes there are many promotional testimonials and "scientific proofs" given by the water machine companies and it's advocates, but remember that whatever angle you look for, you will always find "proof" to back it up. So use your own common sense folks. Alkaline stuff neutralizes acidic stuff. Your stomach acid is acidic. I am NOT saying to drink acidic water. I just think staying natural is best. Don't mess with nature. It's perfect and you can't improve perfection.
More and more people drinking alkaline water are starting to notice they are bloating more (candida yeast expanding), becoming mysteriously tired and getting hypoglycemic symptoms, and parasite infestations. It gets a little confusing when some people swear they got better from alkaline water- but I can almost guarantee you they were doing many OTHER health-oriented things also at the same time. Anyone serious enough to buy one of those machines is probably also experimenting with a much healthier diet and lifestyle than before, so it's not necessarily the water making them better. Of course they want to validate the expensive purchase, so they convince themselves it was the machine, not the natural diet, detoxing, herbs, bowel cleansing and everything else they are doing. I don't want to get into "structured ionized etc" water... this report is just about alkaline / acid.
Raw food is alkaline enough. Just go eat some arugula or watercress. It should be a relief to most people knowing they don't have to spend a fortune to be healthy, especially in these times. The best water still seems to be good old spring water.
If you want to alkalize your body, just breathe deeper. It's much cheaper.
Even if you don't drink alkaline water, if you live in the modern world, chances are your stomach acid is too low. Find out what causes it and what to do about it in my stomach ebook, available here-
Almost all my condition-specific ebooks are under $10 so it's affordable for anyone.
Whatever health condition you may have, I probably wrote a report on it, explaining what causes it, what the symptoms are and what to do about it.
The only other thing I retracted from my books is the long-term use of supplemental enzymes. Don't get me wrong- they WORK and they can be used for a short moment during a healing crisis... but if you take enzymes too long, your body gets lazy and stops making it's own, so it's best to clean up, become healthy and help your body make it's own enzymes, hormones, digestive juices and everything else like its supposed to. There are no shortcuts.
I do my very best to keep the information in my books as solid and up to date as possible. I want results just like you. No hype. Health should not cost money. I am here to self empower you so you can heal anything at home, by yourself for almost nothing. I mean this from my heart, because if you heal, the world is one step closer to harmony and happiness.
Home pregnancy tests you can buy at the drugstore can be used to test for cancer, especially prostate. If it tests positive, it doesn't necessarily mean you are pregnant, it could also mean you have cancer because it tests for fast-growing cells that multiply rapidly. It just doesn't say how much and what kind. (yes this works for men too)
Did you know that stress can lead to bad vision? Tense nerves tighten and pull on muscles, including those that work our eyes, resulting in distorted vision. This is an interesting observation if you think about it- stress distorts your vision of reality :)
The herb SUMA is great for boosting stem cells. (along with your white blood cells for a stronger immune system)
Raw foodists find their bodies become colder than "normal" people. In November 2006, a team of scientists from the Scripps research Institute reported that reducing the core body temperature of mice by 0.3º to 0.5º C lower than normal extends their median life span by up to TWENTY PERCENT !!! Raw foodists also eat less and less as they become cleaner and their bodies require less fuel to run longer. This dovetails directly with another fact that scientists have known for a long time- that calorie restriction is the only other proven way to lengthen life spans. So don't worry guys- that colder body and less appetite is natural and normal. It's those other people out there who aren't "normal" haha!
Stay tuned, this is the beginning of an exciting new way of global living- using less resources and money yet being healthier, happier and more free. Heavy material living is unsustainable, so our material things are being taken away. Don't worry. You don't need them like you think. The moment you realize dandelions are edible, everything changes. You will never starve. You are taken care of.
I will make sure of that.
