The Acid – Alkaline PH Scale

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

The Acid - Alkaline PH Scale

As you can see from the chart above the PH Scale is read from left to right with a PH rating of 0 – 1 being purely acidic (something akin to eating a hole through metal).  On the other end of the scale is a rating of 14 which represents pure alkalinity (these would include items like baking soda and lye).  In the center is 7 which represents neutral. 
In a perfect state your blood wants to be more alkaline than acidic.  Just as the average healthy body premature for a human is 98.6F – the ideal (healthy) PH level for the human body is between 7.3 – 7.4. 
In his groundbreaking book, “Sick and Tired”, Dr. Robert O. Young chronicled how the proper PH balance provides for a “healthy inner terrain” and how the improper PH balance can lead to illness and disease. 
Over the next few days I will offer simple examples of foods and drinks that will help you move towards alkalinity and I will also share with you foods and drinks that create an acidic environment.  I will also show you simple methods that you can use to test your own PH levels.
Remember, health is a journey…it is not a destination.

Are You Sick And Tired Of Being Sick And Tired?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

How many times have you found yourself saying that you are sick and tired of being “sick and tired”?  On a regular basis I would would say that at least half of the people I know and encounter are run down, listless, and they are either sick or on the verge of a cold or flu.  That is a sad comment on the current state of health for a majority of people in North America.

It shouldn’t be that way AND it doesn’t have to be that way.  In 2001, at The University Of Victoria (in Victoria, British Columbia – Canada) I was fortunate enough to study under one of the leading/cutting edge research scientists and doctors in the world, Dr. Robert O. Young.  Dr. Young is at the forefront for research in the “Acid/Alkaline Balance”.  Dr. Young has dedicated his life to health and wellness. 

Over the next few days we are going to discuss foods that are alkaline and foods that are acid (acidic) and how to find a balance between the two that will help establish health and homeostasis in the body. 

For more information on Dr. Young and his work you can find him on FaceBook at the following link:
