122 I used a negative logarithm of the hydrogen concentration to create a scale from 0-14, where a pH of less than 7 is an acid, 7 is neutral, and higher than 7 is an alkali," reads an 2009 announcement from Carlsberg, on the 100th anniversary of the breakthrough. So water has a pH of 7, lemon juice 2.4, and bleach 12.5. The pH of beer is between 4.1. and 4.6 .... Before the pH scale, the only parameter to measure acid levels were vague terms such as 'good,' 'bad,' or 'slightly more than last time.' The innumerable useful applications of the pH (short for "potential of Hydrogen") scale range from foods and beverages to cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and medical diagnostics. Just about every liquid has had its pH measured at some time—including those in our bodies—which, it is very important to note, have more than one pH level. Take the stomach, for instance. It has a pH ranging from 1.35 to 3.5, due to production of hydrocloric acid, which aids in digestion. Blood, on the other hand, must always be slightly alkaline, with a pH of 7.35 to 7.45. The body's buffering systems keep it within that precise range, and excess acid is excreted by the lungs and kidneys. That's part of their job, and they are very, very good at it. The body maintains its pH balance over widely differing diets, and even though what you eat can affect the pH level of your urine, it cannot affect the pH level of your blood. Understand? Good. Now back to
. These electrical devices—which generally cost from $1,000 to almost $6,000 and are often sold by multi-level marketing companies—attach to the kitchen faucet or go under the sink. They strip out contaminants, like other filters, and, besides producing alkaline water for drinking, they also produce acidic water, for cleaning. If you've ever washed windows with a water-and-vinegar mixture, you know acidic water is a good cleansing agent. But the notion that alkaline water can fight or prevent disease? Any chemist will tell you that there is still much to learn about water, but hmmm. Many of the online claims are based on the theory that ionized alkaline water has smaller "clusters" of molecules. According to the Kangen Water website, for instance, "These small clusters make alkaline water Kangen Water more soluble and permeable, allowing you to absorb the important vitamins and nutrients your body needs." And The Alkalizer ("A Wetter Water for a Better Body") maintains that, "The smaller mineral clusters, as measured by the use of a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance device is a more hydrating water than normal tap water. Through electrolysis large tap mineral clusters are reduced from their original size. The smaller cluster size gives the water excellent hydrating properties, high solubility and good permeability."
On this next Monday 11 I'm going to have a colonoscopy to confirm that I have colon cancer (let's hope not), for all the symtomps that I had, and that I have already told you, in my personal message to you. Either way, I started to juice carrots like almost two weeks, and every time I drink them I feel SO MUCH BETTER, and I don't even have diarrhea, neither my bowel sounds much, like when I wasn't drinking it. The Alkaline Water Machine Helped too. Even my seeing has improve, because I was using a 0.25 glasses for tired eyes, and since I'm drinking carrot juice, I don't feel like I need those anymore. That just make me think along with your testimony, and all the information on this page, that doctors ususally don't recommend or prescibed fruits or vegetables to help people's diseases or little troubles, like the one I had with my tired eyes. My ophthalmologist straightly prescribed me multivitamin drops for my eyes, instead of recommending me to eat or drink carrots, that just have help me a lot more than his drops.
Latest update. So after we had the Pet Scan which showed no signs of cancer and we told the surgeon we would just wiat observe and not proceed with any treatment. He suggested that Nigel undergo a colonoscopy so he can see whats left in the rectum. As I sat with Nigel in the recovery room - he walked in and said - 'this is a miracle' - the photo of the rectum is so clear and in his words he could not find anything. We just stopped by a cafe and had guess what ?? "Carrot Juice " - God is great!! Through Christ all things are possible!. 318
