Dr. Vibhuti Rana, PhD says... The information mentioned in this article discussing the ill effects of toxic accumulation and acidosis in our body is medically correct.
"In just 26 seconds after any exposure to chemical toxins, they can be found in every organ of the body."
Why is this important to know and what does it have to do with acidity?
Imagine a fishbowl, the bowl is the outside of your body --- your
skin. The water inside the fishbowl represents the water, the
fluids, inside your body.
Now, let's consider the fish swimming around inside the fishbowl. These fish represent the cells floating inside your body. Also keep in mind your cells are made up of 96% water! What happens to the fish if you don't take care of the water in the fishbowl?
It's actually really simple, the fish DIES!
But before it dies, it slows down and gets sick. Well that's what happens to your body if you're not taking care of your body fluid (water), in your body (fishbowl), your cells (the fish) get sick! And when they get sick, they can't work right can they? That dirty "fishbowl" water is what is known as acidosis.
According to the experts, high acidity or acidosis causes 97% of the American population's health problems and a major cause of this is the common toxins we use every day.
Watch for an ingredient called DEA which is a common toxic ingredient found in over 600 personal care products, such as: shampoos, cosmetics and bubble baths, and has also been linked to cancer. This isn't new news, it was aired way back on a Feb 23 1998 on a CBS morning talk show, and yet few people are even aware of it.
What about propylene glycol (an antifreeze agent), MSG or hydrolyzed protein, sodium laureth sulfate, synthetic minerals and vitamins, food colorings and dies, etc. What kind of effect do you think these toxins have on high acidity and disease in the body?
Let's face it, you and I both know how toxic our world has become over the years, right?
Perhaps you’re already familiar with the dangers of pesticides? But did you know...?
Way back in 1993 (more than 25 years ago!) there were 1,672,127,735 pounds of toxic chemicals released into our air. This was according to Toxic Release Inventory of 1993 released by the EPA.
Prior to 1940, the chemical content of our bodies was nonexistent. Now, over 300 chemicals have been found to be in the human body.
You can live for weeks without food and days without water, but only minutes without air. Each time you breathe, toxic chemicals are being pumped by the heart to every cell in your body. The greater the buildup, the more difficult it becomes for your body to eliminate them.
Toxins, especially pesticides, take up residence in our fatty tissues. Few people realize that their brains contain significant amounts of a form of fat called phospholipids. Our nerve cells are encased in a membrane consisting of phospholipids. Many toxins are fat-soluble and thus can accumulate in fatty tissues and in cell membranes, including our brains.
Our bodies get loaded down with toxins from the products we use, foods we eat that have been sprayed with poisons, the air we breathe, and even much of the water we drink that contains chlorine and fluoride. Do you have any idea what this does to our "fishbowl", how can it affect our body?
According to Dr. Robert O. Young in his book, "The pH Miracle" - symptoms of high acidity overload from toxins can be manifested in the following ways:
Balancing a proper body pH (the ideal blood pH is 7.365) is essential; it controls the speed of the body's biochemical reactions, and interrupts cellular and metabolic activities and functions. Maintaining proper alkalinity is essential for life, health and vitality!
It is important to understand that we are not talking about stomach acidity or the pH of the stomach. We are talking about the pH of the body's fluids and tissues.
The skin is the largest organ of your body. Not only does it protect us from the outside, but it also breathes and gets rid of high acidity induced toxicity-causing poisons that manifest from the inside to the outside.
When the toxins getting into our bodies cannot escape because the pores of our skin are clogged with Omega 6 fats, oils, waxy residues, alcohol and chemicals, what do you think happens to your pH balance?
When too much acid accumulates in the body, it acts as a poison. The body has to deal with the acidity overload by neutralizing it, storing it, or excreting it through various channels. This results in unwanted symptoms showing up in varying degrees.
Researchers find that most people are at least slightly "acidic" which means their pH is low. If your pH is too acidic, your body borrows minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium from vital organs and bones to neutralize and remove the acid.
According to some experts, a highly oxygenated body detoxifies and heals itself, increasing energy, increasing immunity to diseases (such as cancer, viruses, fungus and parasites) and brings a youthful appearance with skin color becoming more "healthy looking." A balanced pH level promotes high oxygen levels within the body.
Most experts agree, bad cells can't live in a "high pH" or alkaline body.
Please be sure to review the information on the alkaline diet, it is a real eye opener.
It is common knowledge now that we cannot completely escape the entry of all toxic forms of chemicals and substances in our body. These toxins have reached alarming levels over the last few years due to uncontrolled contamination of our food in the form of pesticides, insecticides, pollution, waste disposals etc.
Toxic substances, when digested, cause loss of bicarbonates, and increase in carbon monoxide in our cells, leading to a disruption of the human body’s physiological acid-base balance. (1) Metabolic or Respiratory acidosis lead to nausea, vomiting, headaches, etc. While the former may be aggravated due to loss of kidney functions, the latter occurs in respiratory disorders like pneumonia or COPD.
These toxins are either ingested as food or absorbed from the environment. The body tries to get rid of them through pores of the skin, but the excessive amount of toxins makes the whole task very challenging. It is a big concern that most of the ingredients used in our daily toiletries and cosmetics are not regulated and may not be safe for the skin and body. (2) Studies suggest specific toxic chemicals which we should avoid. These include phthalates, parabens, fragrances, Triethanolamine and Diethanolamine, PEGs, sulphates, triclosans, etc. Several other industrial chemicals also lead to high dermal absorption potential.

Finally, I would like to add here that maintaining a healthy lifestyle and alkaline diet leads to an optimum body pH, which works wonders in having good health and fitness.
