Why Is Your pH Viewpoint Different?
Q: How did you get started studying the pH of your body?
A: I am an environmental engineer, and pH is very important to a healthy environment. I also live on a wildlife preserve, and the pH of our turtle ponds keeps them healthy and disease-free.
So, I simply applied healthy pH to the human body’s environment.
It works the same way, but people typically don’t make this connection. It’s easier to understand when you look at it this way.
The pH of your body is critical to disease prevention, and it is one of the key factors in preventative medicine. Most people are aware of the importance of pH for home water features, like your swimming pool, a salt water aquarium, or a garden pond, but when you apply it to health and disease prevention, you’ll begin to see that you can use pH as a key component to detoxing and preventing disease.
I’ve written a pH Booklet available to my Hullistic Members, and I write about how the pH of the body fluids is different from the pH of the blood. I think the body fluids should be around 6.4 to 6.6 pH – the blood is higher, around 7.0 – 7.2 pH.
Does Aging Alter pH?
Q: How important is pH balance to a person who is getting older?
A: pH is important for all ages, but when one becomes post-menopausal (for women) and for the same age range for men (prostate issues, etc.), your pH can change due to exposure to toxins your body has had over time, and to low-quality foods, medications, and other pollutants.
So, restoring your body’s pH to balance helps prevent hardening of the arteries, prostate issues in men, restores healthy hormones in women, and prevents the aging process and chronic disease from becoming more imbalanced over time.
Is Being Alkaline Healthy?
Q: Can germs and diseases live in an alkaline body?
A: Yes, but it is less likely they will duplicate and overcome the body, like when pH is acidic. If your pH is too alkaline, however, the sediments (solid matter) within your body begin to collect, deposit, and harden, and the body becomes dry – likened to a dried stream-bed during a drought.
Kidney stones, plaque in the arteries and within the mouth, elevated liver enzymes, and gallstones can begin to form. If this is an issue in your life, definitely check your pH. It is best to stay between 6.4 and 6-6 pH – not too acidic nor too alkaline.
It’s important to remember that when all living things die, they are completely alkaline.
Why Should We Worry About pH?
Q: Do young people need to watch their pH level?
A: Absolutely. Everyone at any age needs to keep their body pH balanced. Humans are salt-water creatures, and that means we lean towards alkalinity – naturally. But, we have stomach acids and body acids as by-products of digestion, bowel movement, energy production, etc. that keep us in balance – naturally.
Basically, humans are no different than a salt water aquarium, and if we are too acidic, slime and bacteria form that cut off oxygen to its environment. If we get too alkaline, sediments begin to clog the pipes.
All environments will crust-over and solidify with sediments if the pH is too alkaline, and life dries up and dies. If you’re too acidic, disease can spread.
So, as hydrated beings, people need to be balanced between acid and alkaline.
With the onslaught of processed foods, GMOs, and medications overtaking our human lifestyles, younger and younger people are now very acidic, and asthma, Candida, skin diseases such as acne, psoriasis, thrush, and hormone imbalances are occurring at younger and younger ages. Newborns inoculated too young can begin life highly acidic, which can start illness during infancy.
So, we must not neglect the sources of where pH starts in order to
restore health and prevent disease at any age.
