‘“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and
harmony.”. Thomas Merton
Is it safe?
Obviously we all have just one body. Just
as obviously this fact causes us to exercise
a great deal of caution about what we do
with this body. Yet if we look at a ‘typical’
human, he or she never actually seem to
take serious care of themselves until they
feel some form of dis-ease.
‘Dis-ease’ is the major cause of the
pharmaceutical industry. ‘Dis-ease’ is the
reason for the proliferation of health food
stores. ‘Dis-ease’ is the reason for health
magazines, health clubs, health websites
and health supplements. They really all
should be called ‘Disease shops’, ‘Disease
magazines’ and ‘Disease clubs’, because
that is the reason for their existence.
But is it our fault? Of course not! It’s our
own human-ness that causes us to ignore
our health until ‘dis-ease’ changes the way
we think. C’est La Vie!
Even though we don’t care for our health
the way we should, the strange thing about
being a human is that we do care about
what form of health care we choose; usually
because we have been pre-programmed to
disbelieve anything that dosn’t come from
the medical fraternity.
So we do need all the help we can get from
voices of ‘authority’ about acid/alkaline
balance. This issue will, I hope, satisfy this
need with one (of many) doctor’s point of
view.
Theodore Baroody
Dr Theodore A. Baroody, DC, ND, Ph.D., Dipl. Acu. is one of the growing number of Alkaline Pioneers. His book,
Alkalize or Die is an unmistakeable challenge to our pre-existing health concepts.
Dr Baroody was born in Sanford, NC, in 1950. He received his B.S. in Psychology and his Masters degree
in Educational Counseling from Western Carolina University in 1974 and 1978. He received his D.C. degree
from Life Chiropractic College of Marietta, Ga. in 1981. He further studied in Beirut, Lebanon and at Colombo
Americano, Columbia, as well as having traveled extensively in Europe and Asia to gather information on the

after years of clinical research
in his practice and received
his Ph.D. in Nutrition from
American Holistic College. He s
a Certified Nutritional Consultant
(C.N.C.), professional member
of the American Association of
Nutritional Consultants, and a
diplomate in acupuncture.
Presently Dr.. Baroody uses
nutrition, natural healing,
electronic acupuncture,
herbology, kinesiology and
practices chiropractic separately.
Here’s a quote from Dr Baroody’s
book, which we heartily
recommend. It’s available from
Amazon Books.
“The countless names attached
to illnesses do not really matter.
What does matter is that they all
come from the same root cause...
too much tissue acid waste in
the body! And how do you know
if your system is too acid? Do
you need to have blood, urine,
or saliva tests? At present no
tests can accurately gauge how
acid you are because current
diagnostic methods reveal only
that acid wastes are present in
body fluids (blood, lymph, urine,
mucous, and saliva). Such tests
never give a reliable indicator of
how much acid waste is actually
in the system, because the fluids
are always running through the
tissues attempting to remove
these excess tissue acid wastes.
Therefore, although it is possible
to measure body fluid as being
alkaline or acid, it is impossible to
evaluate the state of body tissues
(skin, organs, glands, muscles,
ligaments, arteries and vessels)
based solely on blood, urine, or
saliva tests. Unfortunately, waste
acids that are not eliminated when
they should be, are re-absorbed
from the colon into the liver and
put back into general circulation.
suffer its gradual effects.
They then deposit in the tissues.
It is these tissue residues that
determine sickness or health!
THE IMPACT OF ACIDOSIS
ON YOUR ORGANS:
Discover what tissue acid
wastes are present and begin the
process of alkalizing yourself,
thus ridding them from the body
- the result being superior health,
energy and the strength to enjoy
life fully. .. Think about it this
way... Too much acidity in the
body is like having too little oil
in your car. It just grinds to a halt
one lazy Sunday afternoon. There
you are - stuck. The body does the
same thing. It starts creaking to a
stop along the byways of life and
you find yourself in some kind of
discomfort.”
“I watch with great concern as
people of all classes and lifestyles
suffer from this excess. It is the
bane of rich and poor, young
and old alike. Meat eaters and
vegetarians are not exempt.
Cowboys and congressmen also
Acidosis is the basic foundation
of all disease. We need to
understand the simple process
of alkalizing our body and
the important role a properly
alkalized body plays in restoring
and maintaining our overall
health. Our glands and organs
function properly in exact
proportion to the amount of
alkaline and acid levels in our
system.”
Heart:
The heart is one of the most
alkaline-dependent organs in the
body. It is partly enervated by
the vagus nerve which functions
best in an alkaline environment.
Correct heartbeat is altered by
acid wastes. These wastes rob the
blood of proper oxygenation and
degeneration of the heart follows.
An alkaline system creates an
ideal heart function.
Stomach:
Digestive difficulties (belching,
bloating, sensitivity at the waist,
intestinal gas, regurgitation,
hiccups, lack or limitation of
appetite, nausea, vomiting,
diarrhea, constipation, colic in
children) may indicate vagus
nerve problems and possible
hiatus hernia syndrome, which
can produce acid residue
throughout the system. Hiatus

hernia can quickly reduce necessary
hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Without
proper hydrochloric acid breakdown of foods,
the foods become too acidic.
Liver:
The liver has over three hundred functions,
including processing acid toxins from the
blood and producing numerous alkaline
enzymes for the system and is your first
line of defense against any poisons. All
the nourishment obtained through the
gastrointestinal tract enters the blood by
way of the liver. The load on the liver is
much heavier when acid waste products are
constantly floating in the blood. If the liver
becomes too congested with protein acid
wastes, death is imminent.
Pancreas:
The pancreas is highly dependent on correct
alkaline diet. All aspects of pancreatic
function reduce excess acidity and regulate
blood sugar balance. To have proper blood
sugar balance, you must maintain a primarily

alkaline-forming diet.
Small Intestines:
The Peyer’s Patches, in the upper portion of the
small intestines are crucial to life. They are essential
for proper assimilation of food and producing
lymphocytes for the lymphatic system’s wide
ranging nodal network. They also produce large
amounts of the enzyme “chyle”, which is a major
alkalizing substance. The uninterrupted flow of
chyle into the system is crucial. Too much acid waste
production from acid-forming foods is a great burden
on the Peyer’s Patches, which lessens the production
of chyle.
Kidneys:
In an adult, about 1 litre of blood per minute passes
through the kidneys. By executing their primary
duty, the kidneys keep the blood alkaline and extract
acid. Kidneys that are over-stressed with too much
acidity create kidney stones, which are composed
of waste acid cells and mineral salts that have
become gummed together in a waste acid substance.
Therefore, by reducing acid-forming products from
entering the body, the chances are better that you can
avoid this painful condition.
Colon:
The colon must be kept clean of accumulated acid
wastes. Poisons collect on the colon walls and in
cases of diarrhea or constipation will harden and
reabsorb into the bloodstream. Good bowel action
(complete elimination) must be done at least 2 times
per day.
Lymphatic System
There are 600-700 lymph glands in the body. Lymph
fluid carries nutrition to the cells and removes acid
waste products. Lymph fluid flows best in an alkaline
environment. When the body is overly acidic, it
slows, creating one of the most chronic, long-term,
life-threatening situations. Gradually, the lymph
dries and begins to form very tiny to very large
adhesions throughout the tissues. These adhesions
can interfere not only with lymph fluid but with
blood flow as well. Hindered lymph flow increases

tissue acid storage. Not drinking enough
purified water will also slow the lymph.
Waste products from foods that are not
properly digested are reabsorbed into general
circulation via the lymphatic ducts of the
small intestine. In addition, bowel movements
that do not completely clear the body of its
daily poisons are also reabsorbed.”
If you read Dr Baroody’s book you’ll quickly
see that he is really only talking about what
all doctors treat every day. Yet his realisation
of the relationship between acid/alkaline
balance and long term heath is what makes
his summary you just read so much more
relevant.
Dr Baroody is not the only health
professional to identify the modern day
culprit as excess acid.
You’ll meet more Alkaline
Pioneers as our course
continues, but today let’s
look at WHY we need to
become alkaline.
Firstly, we need to look at what we are not
doing to recognise what we need to do.
Things we may not be doing include regular
detoxification, correctly balanced nutrition,
regular exercise and stress reduction.
Because acid/alkaline balance is wholistic,
I believe we need to appreciate that whole
health means addressing all aspects of health,
including the above-mentioned.
Acid/Alkaline Balance then, is maintaining a
balanced mineral support for the body. Later
on you’ll see a graph that indicates the ability
or inability to absorb a full range of minerals
due to an incorrect acid/alkaline balance. This
means that we need to balance first, intake
minerals second, as well as detox, eat well
and exercise! Without a minerally balanced
body, we are really expecting miracles if
we resort to homoeopaths, acupuncturists
or herbalists because the inner terrain cannot ‘work
with’ these therapies. It cannot respond from a point of
balance.
Acid/Alkaline balance relates to our most fundamental
body level. The fluid surrounding every cell of our
body is described by Herman Aihara, writer of Acid
and Alkaline as our inner sea. He postulates that when
we left the depths, we took our own inner sea with us.
Whether you agree philosophically or not, this ‘inner
sea’ certainly bears a striking resemblance to sea water.
It is saline, alkaline and mineralised.
Why is acid/alkaline the ‘basic’ level of balance?
Why? Because this fluid is so fundamentally important.
It carries nutrition to the cell, waste from the cell,
energy from the cell, and it is the ‘sea’ in which the
tiny antennae of each cell float. These antennae
are responsible for detecting friend or foe, and
communicating this information to the cell itself, so the
constitution of the sea in which these incredibly small
antennae ‘fly’ is crucial to their function and in turn,
their parent cell’s function. Further, the transmission of
energy from the mitochondria, the ‘powerhouse’ of the
cell, is also dependent on this inner sea being capable of
carrying this electrical energy to where it is required.
pH is, practically speaking at this level, an electrical
function. Incorrect pH means incorrect or inadequate
enegy transmission around the body!
So now we have talked about the importance of the pH
level of our blood and of our interstitial fluid.
But how can we determine what pH we are at any
point in time?
Well, I wish I could give you an easy answer to that,
but the more ‘experts’ I talk to, the more diverse their
opinions become.
One expert will say that you must have an exact value
of urine pH, while another will say that there are no
“normal” values for urine and saliva, because our
body is a constantly changing dynamic of cleansing,
recharging, rebuilding, detoxing and more functions,
going on concurrently and separately, depending on how
we live our life. Your urine pH will vary based on what
you ate the night before. Your saliva pH reading will

depend on what you have been eating for the
last few months! It will also vary depending
on the time of day, how well you slept and
how much stress you are experiencing!
URINE AND SALIVA TESTING
This simple test was in use long before
modern blood tests came into existence.
Today, no-oner bothers, just as no modern
medico relates to homoeopathy, the
precursoR of allopathy. The amount of
information a pH test provides is considerable
and can form the basis of your future healtth
management. If your pH is not right, nothing
in the body works to its possible peak. This
includes all therapies; vitamins, acupuncture,
herbals and allopathic drugs.
No matter what is wrong with you, the
healing process begins with
RE-MINERALIZATION.
Herein lies the problem. The only way you
can replace these minerals is by consuming
fruits and vegetables. Mineral supplements
only work temporarily. Most minerals are
ground up rocks. They can’t be incorporated
into the body cells. Plants digest rocks, people
don’t.
A urine or saliva test advises us on how
many acid or alkaline minerals are left in our
bodies, i.e. what the MINERAL RESERVES
of the body are, and what we must do to remineralize it. This lays the foundation for any
and all healing therapies.
HOW WE BECOME ACID
The primary reason modern Westerners
become over-acidic is from over-consumption
of protein. As protein breaks down in our
“Plants digest
rocks, people
bodies, it breaks down into strong acids; sulphuric,
nitric and phosphoric. These acids are so strong they
could burn holes in your clothes, and eat metal.
I am not saying we don’t need protein, but I am
saying we are totally over the top in what we believe
is ‘enough’. To survive we need only 40 grams a
day. If we eat more than 47 grams, we will actually
begin to lose calcium. I hope you can hear this. It
doesn’t mean we need only eat one 50g egg a day. It
means we need to eat only enough food containing
47g or pure protein. Depending upon your own diet
preferences this could equal far more in total grams
of food consumed. BUT the ‘untold truth’ is that
because excess protein turns into acids, it has to be
immediately neutralised, and if we are not alkaline
eaters, there is only one place to get alkaline calcium;
the bones and teeth! (Even an Olympic athlete only
needs 80 grams of protein a day.)
Excess Eating Means Loss of Calcium
The SAD (Standard American Diet) diet contains
200 grams of protein per day. Plato said it a long,
long time ago, but certainly the more affluent we are
as a nation, the more meat we seem to think we need
to eat.
This is one reason postulated for the extinction of the
Mayan Indians; their skeletons are demineralized, as
if they too had been soaked in excess acid.
Maybe toward the end they ‘supersized’ at the local
fast food joint.
Of course, there are other contributing factors.
Stress, for instance, is the modern acidifier. When
we hear that it is unhealthy to stress, most of us
believe it is the emotions that we experience that
cause the ‘unhealthiness’ of stress, but that is just
the start. Stress actually has a chemical reponse in
the body. Acid is produced as the body resp[onds to
the perceived real or imaginary threat. The adrenals
squirt adrenalin into our system, and every part of
our body responds with a flight or fight response.
..or at least it should. It’s my personal belief that
today we have so internalised stress due to its social
unacceptability that this inernalisation actually
translates into additional acids in the body.
Later we’ll discuss groundbreaking research that
agrees with my own pet theory.
