Mainstream Medicine Slowly Recognizing Curative Powers of Nutrition

Animal nutrition and acid-base balance.

Institute of Animal Nutrition, University of Zürich, Switzerland.

In domestic animals, acid-base balance may be influenced by nutrition.

The major research effort in this area has been made on the prevention of hypocalcemic postparturient paresis in dairy cows.

This disorder is caused by the sudden increase of calcium secretion into the colostrum. The manipulation of the dietary cation-anion difference makes it possible to maintain the cows in metabolic acidosis during the critical period that precedes calving, presumably via a mechanism that involves the strong ion difference in the extracellular fluid. As a consequence the mobilization of calcium is enhanced and the incidence of the disorder is decreased.

Conversely, a dietary induced metabolic alkalosis leads to a more severe degree of hypocalcemia and the incidence of the disease is increased.

The underlying mechanisms of the prevention are only partially understood. Nevertheless, this preventive method is already widely applied in practice.

Nutrition effects on acid-base balance also influence growth and food intake in higher vertebrates and fish. As a consequence, the incidence of developmental orthopedic diseases in fast-growing domestic animal species may be affected.

Also, the bone mineral content of athletic horses may be influenced by dietary induced modification of the acid-base status. The mineral loss due to metabolic acidosis may lead to an increase in the incidence of stress fractures. This overview should give insight into relevant aspects of nutrition and acid-base balance in domestic animal species.
In other words, they have successfully manipulated disease by addressing the Ph of the "extracellular fluid" blood, via nutrition. It is obvious the disease can be prevented and cured by adjusting the Ph level of the blood.

The same is true for most human chronic diseases. A low blood Ph, (acidic) is essential for pathogens to grow and thrive. People afflicted with such diseases generally test for a low blood Ph.

In 1933, Dr Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize for his discovery that cancer cells can only live in an acidic (low Ph) environment. In fact, they become dormant at a normal blood Ph (7.4)!

In addition, cells struggling to survive in an acidic environment give rise to so-called free radicals. Free radicals are waste products produced by chemical reactions. They are extremely dangerous to the body. They attack and disable or destroy healthy cells throughout the body giving rise to the many disorders and illnesses that afflict mankind.

Therefore, if you maintain the proper Ph level in your blood, it will go a long way to preventing, controlling and curing disease.

To learn what more progressive and enlightened medical professionals have to say about Ph balance, free radicals and their influence on human disease, read these reports.
