HISTORY, LOST, AND FOUND
Biology relies on the idea that disease originates with germs that attack the body from the outside. However, I’ve learned that, in an acid condition, bacteria and other microforms can come from our body cells.
Germs in the air may add to illness, but they are not, contrary to popular belief, necessary for illness to happen. Their adverse effects are added to the compromised environment already existing in the body.
Besides creating different microforms in our bodies, they also come in through our respiratory system and intestinal tract, often via our food.
Bacteria grow in the body, wreaking havoc. Their appearance initiates a similar development in the bacteria already in the host-depending on the internal environment.
An acidic environment gives a big green light to this process. To get an infection, you have to be predisposed to it. You have to have some of the bugs already in your system, and you have to have the acidity to allow it to take hold or transform from body cells.
This is why some exposed, acidic people get sick, and some don’t. Germs are the same. Even if they get into your body, they can’t grow and multiply and make you sick unless it’s acidic.
THE MANY FORMS OF MICROFORMS
The other fact about microforms is that they can rapidly change their form and function. For example, bacteria can change into yeast, yeast into fungus, and fungus into a mold.
Something is living independently in cells and body fluids that are capable of evolving into more complex forms. These are known as microzymas (micro, meaning “small,” and zyma, meaning “being”), and all living things hold them.
Degeneration and regeneration both start with microzymas. In the right circumstances and environment, microzymas grow into more complicated life-forms, like bacteria and fungus.
Bacteria can also de-evolve back to microzymas. Everything begins and ends with microzymas. What happens in between depends on the environment.
The ability of microforms to change form and function depending on their environment is known as pleomorphism (pleo, meaning “many,” and morph, meaning “form”).
Red blood cells do this, as well: They can de-evolve and then re-evolve into any cell the body needs-bone cells, muscle cells, skin cells, brain cells, liver cells, heart cells, and so on.
Bacteria, yeast, fungus, and mold are abnormal evolutions of healthy cells (including red blood cells, brain cells, and liver cells).
So what kind of unhealthy environment spurs the biological change of body cells into microforms in the human body? Acidity
Microzymas don’t always become bacteria, and bacteria don’t always grow into fungus, nor does fungus always become mold-it takes an acid environment. Harmful pleomorphic organisms do not, and cannot, develop in healthy alkaline surroundings.
We can heal ourselves by changing the internal environment of our bodies. Potentially harmful microforms of bacteria, yeast, fungus, and/or mold, then, will have nowhere to grow and will become harmless.
ACID IMBALANCE IS NATURAL WHEN WE’RE DEAD
Acid imbalance and microform transformation and then over-growth is a natural process when life is ending. The body automatically becomes acidic upon death. Once a body stops breathing, oxygen levels rapidly decrease, which microforms thrive in.
They are a part of the average human body because they are the “undertakers” when we die. Those mycotoxins are designed to decompose our dead bodies.
Biologists call it the carbon cycle. Acid is what makes our corpses rot. The terrifying part is that it does the same thing to us when we are living!
However, there is nothing bad about the microforms themselves. If anything, they are good. Cells all over the body need to break down and renew themselves to stay healthy. Microforms are there to handle the recycling, so the garbage doesn’t pile up.
HOW ACIDIC ARE YOU?
You can check your pH levels at home with paper pH strips, available at many pharmacies, or with a battery-operated pH electron meter, available from health catalogs.
The strips test your saliva or urine pH. You are better off testing your urine, which gives you an immediate indicator of your tissue pH. Urine pH also changes in response to what you eat. First thing in the morning is the best time to test. That pH will reflect your lifestyle and dietary choices over the last twenty-four hours. Ideally, it will be moderately alkaline, pH at 7.2 or higher.
The strips change color to show acid or base and are lighter or darker depending on the reading’s strength. They come with a color chart to help you read them.
If you want to check your saliva, which ideally will also be above 7.2, test it before you eat in the morning and then a couple of times during the day.
If your results are below 7.0, you can correct it immediately by eating alkaline foods, like cucumber, broccoli, asparagus, or avocado, or taking three teaspoons of mineral salts in four to six ounces of water.
You can also see the effect of meals on pH by regularly testing throughout the day. Though the results are not definitive, you will be able to see trends.
Compare the result with those you got from your original diet. Anytime you have low pH readings, especially after eating, you know that you are deficient in alkaline reserves. Your body does not have enough of the minerals necessary to process food properly and cannot adequately respond to the physiological crisis of acidic food or drink.
Your doctor can also do a blood pH test for you. As mentioned, the ideal blood pH is 7.365. The American medical establishment accepts 7.4, but that is too alkaline and indicates tissue acidification.
Daily pH testing is a crucial health check. As long as you keep it at 7.2 or better, you know your blood and tissues are also healthy. People coping with serious health issues may need to increase the urine or other bodily fluids’ pH to curb acidity.
Anyone on the standard American diet is probably imbalanced-acidic. If you have any symptoms, you know you are imbalanced and over acid. On the other hand, if you do what you know is right for your body, you can rely on your body to self-repair.
When you no longer have an acid overload, you’ll be free of symptoms, full of energy, and refreshed. You’ll also reach your body’s healthy weight.
YOU SHOULD GET TESTED EVERY YEAR
You should get a live blood analysis, and dried blood analysis is done every year, assuming you are in good health.
Testing each year will keep you aware of what it takes to keep healthy and fit, give you feedback on how you are doing, and warn you of any emerging issues.
If you are dealing with a symptom or condition, then live and dried blood tests should be done every seventy-two hours while you are symptomatic. As the symptoms improve, test every twelve weeks. Once your condition has been resolved, you can go back to getting tested once a year.
Testing the pH of your urine and saliva daily provides reassurance between blood tests.
WHAT CAUSES ACID IMBALANCE?
Over acidity and microform overgrowth are linked. Microforms are a significant source of acid in the body. Acidification creates a nice environment for microforms. We predispose ourselves to both conditions through various stresses.
The main one is a bad diet. However, toxicity from outside sources and other stresses play roles, emotional upheaval, negative thinking patterns, lack of exercise, stretching, and deep breathing also contributes.
First comes something that upsets your body in some way, be it a bad diet, a polluted environment, negative thoughts, under or overexercising, or destructive emotions. Whatever it may be, that initial physical or emotional distress starts acidifying your body and disrupts your very cells.
Cells work to adjust to the declining pH of their acidic environment. They break down and evolve into bacteria, yeast, and mold. These create waste products, which further contaminate the environment. That is a disturbance to the system, and in this way, the whole cycle keeps going.
