Your Body pH Affects Everything

[Extracted from Jim Clark's Potent Nutritional Supplements]

Understanding pH Level and Why Many People Have Disease, including Cancer.

According to the research of Dr. Enderlein, total healing of chronic illness only takes place when and if the blood is restored to a normal, slightly alkaline pH. In case you missed it, let me say it again...

Total healing of chronic illness only takes place when and if the blood is restored to a normal, slightly alkaline pH.

pH : What does it mean ? pH is the abbreviation for potential hydrogen. The pH of any solution is the measure of its hydrogen-ion concentration. The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen rich the fluid is. The lower the pH reading, the more acidic and oxygen deprived the fluid is. The pH range is from 0 to 14, with 7.0 being neutral. Anything above 7.0 is alkaline, anything below 7.0 is considered acidic.

The pH scale is from 0 - 14 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 healthy 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

Human blood stays in a very narrow pH range right around ( 7.35 - 7.45 ). Below or above this range means symptoms and disease. If blood pH moves to much below 6.8 or above 7.8, cells stop functioning and the patient dies. The ideal pH for blood is 7.4

A healthy blood pH without cancer has acid + alkaline balance almost equal. Actually a healthy body is slightly alkaline measuring approximately 7.4. This ideal blood 7.4 pH measurement means it is just slightly more alkaline than acid.


0 is acid ------ blood pH ( 7.35 - 7.45 ) healthy ------ over 7 to 14 is alkaline

If you have a health problem, most likely you are acidic. Research shows that unless the body's pH level is slightly alkaline, the body cannot heal itself. So, no matter what type of modality you choose to use to take care of your health problem, it won't be effective until the pH level is up. If your body's pH is not balanced, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements. Your body pH affects everything.

The body has to have a balanced pH like most living things on earth or it does not function correctly. The alkaline level is very important because research has already proven that disease cannot survive in an alkaline state and yet they thrive in an acidic environment.

An acidic balance will: decrease the body's ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells, decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it's ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness.

An acidic pH can occur from, an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals. If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells will occur.

There are two factors that are ALWAYS present with cancer no matter what else may be present. Those two factors are Acid pH and Lack of Oxygen. Can we manipulate those two factors that always have to be present for cancer to develop and by doing so will that help reverse the cancer? If so, we need to learn how to manipulate those two factors.

Cancer needs an acid and low oxygen environment to survive and flourish within. Terminal cancer patients are around 1000 times more acidic than normal healthy people. The vast majority of terminal cancer patients possess a very low body pH. Why ?

In the absence of oxygen, glucose undergoes fermentation to lactic acid. This causes the pH of the cell to drop from between 7.3 to 7.2 down to 7 and later to 6.5 in more advanced stages of cancer and in metastases the pH drops to 6.0 and even 5.7 or lower. Our bodies simply can not fight disease if our body pH is not properly balanced.

The normal human cell has a lot of molecular oxygen and a slightly alkaline pH. The cancer cell has an acid pH and lack of oxygen. Cancer cells cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment. At a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at pH 8.5 cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live. Again, the higher the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen rich the fluid is. Cancer and all diseases hate oxygen / pH balance. The proper alkalinity pH of the blood ( 7.35 - 7.45 ) is critical for the overall health of the body. In other words... alkaline or die.

Remember that the pH number is an exponent number of 10; therefore, a small difference in pH translates to a big difference in the number of oxygen or OH-ions. A difference of 1 in a pH value means ten times the difference in the number of OH-ions, a difference of 2 means one hundred times the difference in the number of OH-ions. In other words, blood with a pH value of 7.45 contains 64.9% more oxygen than blood with a pH value of 7.30.

If your body pH is not balanced, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements. Also, mucus on the small intestine can block your body from vitamin and mineral absorption.

How To Test Your pH Level ?

Test your pH level : If you are sick or have cancer simply wet a piece of Litmus Paper with your saliva 2 hours after a meal. This will give a reflection of your state of health.

Salivary pH Test : While generally more acidic than blood, salivary pH mirrors the blood (if not around meals) and is also a fairly good indicator of health. It tells us what the body retains. Salivary pH is a fair indicator of the health of the extracellular fluids and their alkaline mineral reserves.

Optimal pH for saliva is 6.4 to 6.8. Spit upon arising before anything is put into the mouth. A reading lower than 6.4 is indicative of insufficient alkaline reserves. After eating, the saliva pH should rise to 7.8 or higher. Unless this occurs, the body has alkaline mineral deficiencies ( mainly Calcium and Magnesium ) and will not assimilate food very well. To deviate from ideal salivary pH for an extended time invites illness.

Acidosis, an extended time in the acid pH state, can result in rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, lupus, tuberculosis, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, most cancers and many more. If salivary pH stays too low, the diet should focus on fruit, vegetables and mineral water as well as remove strong acidifiers such as sodas, whole wheat and red meat.

Urinary pH Test : The pH of the urine indicates how the body is working to maintain the proper pH of the blood. The urine reveals the alkaline building (anabolic) and acid tearing down (catabolic) cycles. The pH of urine indicates the efforts of the body via the kidneys, adrenals, lungs and gonads to regulate pH through the buffer salts and hormones. Urine can provide a fairly accurate picture of body chemistry, because the kidneys filter out the buffer salts of pH regulation and provide values based on what the body is eliminating. Urine pH can vary from around 4.5 to 9.0 for its extremes, but the ideal range is 5.8 to 6.8.

Foods considered to be alkaline-forming and thus helpful to people with consistently acid pH include : almonds, aloe vera, apples, apricots, bee pollen, buckwheat, cabbage, cantaloupe, celery, carrots, cucumbers, dairy products except hard cheese, dates, dulse, poached eggs, figs, grapefruit, honey, lettuce, millet, parsley, raisins, peaches, fresh red potatoes, pineapple, soy products, sprouted seeds, cooked spinach, turnip tops, wakame miso soup, azuki beans, rice, mineral water.

People who remain too acid often display symptoms such as : anxiety, diarrhea, dilated pupils, extroverted behavior, fatigue in early morning, headaches, hyperactivity, hypersexuality, insomnia, nervousness, rapid heartbeat, restless legs, shortness of breath, strong appetite, high blood pressure, warm dry hands and feet.

Balancing the pH is a major step toward well-being and greater health. Acidosis (overly acidic body) is the primary indicator of Calcium Deficiency Disease. Scientists have discovered that the body fluids of healthy people are alkaline (high pH) whereas the body fluids of sick people are acidic ( low pH ). An acidic body is a sickness magnet. What you eat and drink will impact where your body's pH level falls. As nutritional support : coral calcium, fresh vegetable juices, alkaline forming foods and drinking high pH alkaline water can help balance your body pH.

Alkalinity Body - pH Support
[High pH Alkaline Water - Fresh Vegetable Juices - Coral Calcium - Alkaline Forming Foods]

1. How to drink water for MAXIMUM effectiveness: Drink ½ your body weight of water in ounces, daily. Example: 180 lb = 90 oz. of water daily. Divide that into 8 or 10 oz. glasses and that's how many glasses you will need to drink, daily. Use ¼ tsp. of Sea salt (celtic sea salt being the highest in mineral content) as seaoning on your food for every quart of water you drink. As long as you drink the water, you can use the salt. Avoid caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. These are diuretics and will dehydrate you. Every 6 oz. of caffeine or alcohol requires an additional 10 to 12 oz. of water to re-hydrate you. Interesting facts about water and salt... Click Here

The Minimum Recommendations For Water: (Use Sea salt same as above). Drink a minimum of 64 ounces (about 2 liters) of water every day. I know this is easier said than done. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink - you'll likely never get this much down. Instead, keep filled water bottles at your desk, in your car, by your bed, and near your favorite chair as a reminder.

2. Fresh Vegetable Juices: One of the best ways to raise body pH is making sure that adequate minerals, particularly calcium are present. In general, green vegetables are high in calcium. Kale, broccoli, and collard greens are good sources of calcium. As nutritional support, your best choice is a combination of water and fresh vegetable juices, one quart of each daily. (Buy a juicer and start juicing). Non-dairy Calcium Foods

[If you have congestive heart failure or kidney disease, or if you are taking diuretics, talk to your doctor before increasing your water and/or juice intake].

3. Coral Calcium has a pH of 10-12 which is extremely high on the alkalinizing side. This means coral calcium will help offset the acid / alkaline ratio within your acidic body, thereby will help return your body to the normal slightly alkaline level. Calcium does not cure disease. As nutritional support, it simply helps keep the pH level of our body fluids in sync so the body fights disease naturally, like it was meant to. Suggested Intake : See Chart, below.

4. To maintain health, the diet should consist of 60% alkaline forming foods and 40% acid forming foods. To restore health, the diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid forming foods. Balance is Key !!! A list of Acid / Alkaline Forming Foods.


Coral Calcium (1100 mg capsules)
Your pH level Suggested Intake to Increase Your pH
below 6.0 2 capsules, 4 times daily = 8800 mg
6.0 - 6.5 2 capsules, 3 times daily = 6600 mg
7.0 or higher 1 capsule, 3 times daily = 3300 mg

[Balancing the pH is a major step toward well-being and greater health. Acidosis (overly acidic body) is the primary indicator of Calcium Deficiency Disease. Scientists have discovered that the body fluids of healthy people are alkaline (high pH) whereas the body fluids of sick people are acidic (low pH). As nutritional support coral calcium, alkaline forming foods and drinking high pH alkaline natural spring or mineral water can help balance your body pH.

Calcium does not cure disease. As nutritional support, it simply helps keep the pH level of our body fluids in sync so the body fights disease naturally, like it was meant to. Your body pH affects everything. As the bio-available calcium and other alkalizing minerals get into the blood and cells the body pH begins to return to the normal slightly alkaline level. Your body must have a balanced pH - 7.35 to 7.45. Most disease thrives in an acidic environment.

Coral Calcium has a pH of 10-12 which is extremely high on the alkalinizing side. This means coral calcium will help offset the acid / alkaline ratio within your acidic body, thereby will help return your body to the normal slightly alkaline level].

Best Absorption : Your body absorbs calcium less efficiently as your intake increases, therefore it is best to take calcium in small doses throughout the day. It is recommended to take each capsule at a separate time. It is much easier for your body to absorb the calcium (actual calcium content), if no more than 500 mg is taken at one time. This is why it is recommended to drink quality water with ionic coral calcium through out the day, as opposed to all at once. The actual calcium content of our potent Above-sea coral is 333 mg each capsule. More good news... You cannot take too much of our above-sea coral calcium because whatever your body doesn't use, it passes.
