Is Your Acid Showing?

I was an asthmatic child up until about 7 years old and couldn't run very fast or play out after dark as I would turn on an asthma attack. I was given medication to relieve the symptoms but my skin broke out in rashes, boils and hives on a regular basis. I still have the scars from the boils.

How many people have similar stories. They may not have skin problems, some may be overweight, others get depressed, some people are allergic to smells, some people have acne or low energy.

We hear "The Body Can Heal Itself" but throughout our lives, we all seem to be the effect of this illness or that.

So, what's the story here? This is what we found out.

There's Too Much Acid in the Body

Acid can enter the body by eating, drinking, breathing, skin contact and through stress related sources.

Your blood must remain slightly alkaline to maintain health.

The body tries to keep the correct balance of acid and alkaline in the blood. If there is more acid showing up in the blood than is safe, the body will do any or all of the following:

  • Neutralize it by pulling alkaline minerals out of bones and tissues,
  • Combine it with fat to keep it out of circulation,
  • Hide it in various organs like the liver, spleen, kidneys, thyroid or even the joints, and
  • Dump it out through the skin even though still not neutralized with alkaline minerals.

In my case, the accumulated acid did not get neutralized and it was dumped out through the skin causing rashes, hives, boils, etc. Yes, my acid was definitely showing!

A Doctor speaks out ...

Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, Jr., author of "Alkalize or Die." has this to say: "Too much acidity in the body is like having too little oil in our car. It just grinds to a halt one lazy Sunday afternoon. There you are - stuck."

"The body does the same thing. It starts creaking to a stop along the byways of life and you find yourself in some kind of discomfort. I watch with great concern as people of all classes and lifestyles suffer from this excess. It is the bane of rich and poor, young and old alike. Meat eaters and vegetarians are not exempt. Cowboys and congressmen also suffer its gradual effects."

What Can Be Done About It?

We continue look for and apply information on pH and pass our findings onto you. We don't always agree with everything we read from one author or one website, but we will pass things on to you if we agree with the majority of what we find. We recommend books, foods, ideas, websites... whatever we consider helpful for you in balancing your own pH.

We pass the information on to you in hopes you too will evaluate the information for yourself. Use what you can to make your life better and pass your discoveries on to others.
