A pH Lecture by Dr Mark Cochran DC ND
If you are in a state of acidosis (measurable by urine and saliva pH) you are not healthy no matter how well you feel or how symptom-free you are!! Statistics indicate that 97% of people (even infants) have dirty "fishbowl water" meaning the water that bathes your cells and dirty "fishbowl water" leads to sick fish! Your "fishbowl water" is tested by measuring the first morning urine pH with litmus paper (available at most healthfood stores). The pH should be between 6.5 and 7.1. Anything outside that range is an indication of a problem. This testing must be done first thing upon waking, before eating, drinking or exercising.
Our bodies are 76% water. The brain is 97%, the blood 94% - we are walking water!! What happens when we don’t take care of the water that baths the cell in our bodies? Dirty water creates acidosis. The state of the water will equal the state of the cells.
There are 4 major factors that contribute to messed up “fishbowl water”:
1.What you put on the skin – within 40 seconds, anything you put on the skin is transported to the liver. Are you putting toxins on your skin via lotions, hair dyes, cleansers etc?
2. What you put in your mouth. Are you eating and drinking foods that are alive, nutritious and alkaline?
3.The air you breath – toxins are absorbed through the lungs.
4.“Stinkin’ Thinkin’ ” – emotional health. 93% of chronic disease has an emotional component.
Now here’s the chemistry lesson:
We want negative (-) ions. Hydrogen ions carry a positive (+) charge. pH stands for “the potential of Hydrogen”. pH is exponential which means that every point deviation from neutral (pH 7.0)is a factor of 10 not 1. eg. 6.0 to 7.0=1 point=10x more acidic than neutral; pH of 5.0=2 points=100x more acidic; pH of 4 is a 3 point deviation so 1000x more acidic and so on……..
pH scale 0 __________(acidic)________7_________(alkaline)__________14
Maintenance pH: 6.5 to 6.8
Therapeutic pH: 6.8 to 7.1. (necessary to heal an existing health challenge)
Have you ever been in a Nursing Home or other “sick care” facility and smelled ammonia? This is a result of acidosis in the body. The kidney produces ammonia (a base) to neutalize the acidic "fishbowl water" to protect itself from being burnt........this then neutralizes the urine so the pH would appear in the normal to alkaline range (around 7) even though the body is very acidic and that is a dangerous situation. Dr “C” related a story of an elderly woman with an alkaline pH who was prescribed an acid forming diet to "counteract" this alkaline urine pH. The woman died 3 days later.
The emotional component that is a factor in 93% of chronic illness (the "stinkin´ thinkin") is measurable by testing first morning saliva pH and should be 6.8. This is a measure of the effect of neurotransmitters in the system which is a direct measure of emotion.
Fibromyalgia, asthma, cancer, arthritis, colic, yeast infections, even diabetes is attributable to acidosis (pH below 6.5) Your body must be in a range of 6.8-7.1 in order to heal and existing health problem. This is called therapeutic pH.
People won´t lose weight or absorb vitamins and minerals etc if the pH is not balanced. Example: if first morning urine pH is: < 6.4 or >7.2, iodine is NOT being absorbed thus affecting thyroid, metabolism and weight; a pH of< 5.5 means calcium, magnesium and potassium are NOT being absorbed; at pH of<5.5 you should NOT do strenuous exercise because acidosis is increased due to lactic acid production in the muscles.
The tissue most affected by acidosis is the heart. It is interesting that if a "healthy" athlete dies unexpectedly....it is often due to heart attack! Combine strenuous exercise (training) with a high protein diet (also very acidifying) and you have a potential problem!
Detoxification is the cleaning of the water in the “fish bowl”. You may feel worse before feeling better. This is part of the healing system of the body. If the body is too acidic it is a perfect environment for mold, fungus, bacteria, viruses, and parasites. You will not correct pH by controlling symptoms……you must neutralize pH by detoxing. Change the pH and you change health.
The good news is that everything we need to get our pH back on track is in ForeverGreen’s ForeverFit Pack (Thunder, Lightning and Raindrops). The new Raindrops product which combines Green Dragon, Rainmaker and Shine is taken in your drinking water or juice as well as used IN YOUR BATHTUB!!
Thunder – nourishes the body’s metabolic processes. Provides vitamins, minerals, whey protein, probiotics, enzymes, fiber and chocolate….all organic ingredients. The body is given the nourishment to detoxify, cleanse and rebuild.
Lightning – is a gentle bowel cleanse. It supports the body in cleansing while you detoxify. Lightning works synergistically with Thunder and Raindrops.
Raindrops – add ¼ teaspoon to a hot bath and soak for 40 min. every day and monitor the pH.
This detoxing bath has a very alkalizing effect on the body. Add 3 or 4 drops to each glass of drinking water as well.
Water – drink ½ your body weight in ounces per day. eg. 160 lb person=80 oz water/day=10 glasses
Frankincense –may be added to the program. It has an emotional frequency and will improve the saliva pH and therefore the emotional health (the causative emotion should also be addressed).
ForeverGreen will soon be releasing a “Pain Pack” and a “pH Diet Pack” along with supporting material written by Dr Cochran. "Tinkle and Spit to be ForeverFit".
Urine pH = health of body fluids. Should be 6.5-7.1 Saliva pH = emotional health. Should be 6.8
