ph nutritional support
It has been said by Dr. Robert O. Young in "The pH Miracle" that there is only one disease - acidosis - and all the rest are just symptoms. Blood and every fluid in the body should be slightly alkaline (7.3-7.4 on the pH scale) however the human organism creates acid by-products while functioning, thinking, and exercising.
Unless these acids are eliminated by hydration, urination, perspiration and defecation, they build up and acidosis:
- causes inflammation and irritation
- creates mucous sticking cells together
- keeps oxygen-carrying red blood cells out of capillaries
- leads to poor circulation and endless diseases
- causes fat production to protect the organs from acid
- causes the liver to produce cholesterol
- leaches minerals from bones and muscles
- damages insulin receptor cells affecting blood sugar
- causes energy loss
Unfortunately most of the modern diet, with emphasis on carbohydrates and proteins and lacking vegetables, is acid-forming. We can alkalize by:
- the food we eat
- the water we drink
- the air we breathe
- the thoughts we think

Digestive Valve Tune-Up
When digestive valves are stuck, toxins are recirculating instead of being released. The blood is dirty and the immune system is overburdened. This can cause skin disorders, joint issues, various '-itises', indigestion, acid reflux, diarrhea, head-aches, foggy thinking, depression etc.
The Open Ileocecal Valve Syndrome (in the lower right colon) is the result of stress and an abrasive, acid-forming diet. If left unchecked it can wear down the lining of the intestines causing leaky gut, and have a domino effect along the rest of the digestive tract, all the way to hiatal hernia at the stomach.
Simple adjustments involve Touch for Health muscle testing and acupressure for neural and lymphatic points, followed by an eating plan to heal the intestinal lining. This is offered as part of The Cleanse Personal Retreat.
