PH BALANCE
The Cornerstone of Health

From Essential Oils

The ideal pH for the human body is 7.0. However, if one checks some of the key 'experts' (Dr Jenson, Dr Bodine, Dr Cayce, Dr Phiefer, Dr Jinks, etc), you will find they recommend the body be 'slightly' alkaline. Preserving this alkalinity (pH balance) is the bedrock on which sound health and strong bodies are built. When the blood loses its alkalinity and starts to become more acidic, the foundation of health is under- mined. This creates an environment where we become vulnerable to disease and runaway yeast and fungus overgrowth. In fact, research has found that almost all diseases are linked to acid based yeast and fungus dominance. At least 2/3 of the time a person with their PH out of balance, it is due to Candida overgrowth. Here are a few of the tell-tale signs:

*Fatigue...Low energy/Unexplained aches and pains/Overweight conditions
Low resistance to illness/Allergies/Unbalanced blood sugar/Headaches
Irritability...Mood swings/Indigestion/Colitis...Ulcers/Diarrhea...Constipation
Urinary tract infections/Rectal itch...Vaginal itch

The naturally-occurring yeast and fungi in your body thrive in an acidic terrain. These same yeast and fungi are responsible for secreting a large number of poisons called mycotoxins, which are believed to be one of the root causes of many diseases and debilitating conditions.

What Are Yeast and Fungi?: They are nature's groundskeepers, responsible for decomposing dead tissues. They exist everywhere - inside your stomach, on your skin, and out on the lawn. When kept under control, the yeast and fungi populating your body are harmless gremlins which digest what your body cannot or does not have the chance to use. However, when you feed these gremlin-like microorganisms too many sugars, animal proteins, and dairy products, their populations explode out of control. Instead of being innocent, playful passengers in your body, they convert into aggressive, Pacman-like mycotoxin factories, wreaking unintentional damage to your body - and behaving biochemically the same way Gremlins do when they are exposed to water and fed after midnight.

By balancing the body's pH and creating a more alkaline environment, you can control the microbial overgrowths and choke off the production of disease-causing mycotoxins. With pH balance restored, the body can regain vigor and health.

You Can Restore Your Body's Alkalinity by:
1. CAREFULLY MONITORING YOUR DIET and avoiding yeast and fungus promoting foods such as meats, sugars, dairy products, mushrooms and pickled and malted products. Garlic is excellent for controlling fungi and yeast. Other high-alkaline fungus inhibiting foods include green and yellow vegetables, beans, and whole uncracked nuts. The natural ratio between acid and alkaline foods in the diet should be 4:1 - four parts alkaline to one part acid. In his book, the "Yeast Syndrome," Dr. Morton Walker outlines some antifungal diets.

2. AVOIDING THE FRIVOLOUS AND UNNECESSARY USE OF ANTIBIOTICS. The overuse of antibiotics for incidental, minor, or cosmetic conditions not only increases the resistance of pathogenic microorganisms, but it kills the beneficial bacteria in your body leaving the mycotoxin-generating yeast and fungi intact. This is why many women suffer outbreaks of yeast infections after antibiotic use.

3. USING ESSENTIAL OILS. Because of their high oxygenating activity, most essential oils possess significant anti-fungal and anti-yeast attributes. Essential oils work best in an alkaline environment. The more acidic the internal terrain, the harder the oils must work to benefit the body.

4. TAKING PRODUCTS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO ALKALANIZE YOUR SYSTEM. AlkaLime is a precisely balanced acid-neutralizing mineral formulation offered by Young Living Essential Oils, Inc. It is designed to reduce the acidity of your internal terrain. By reducing the yeast and fungus population, Alkalize effectively lowers the level of mycotoxins.

5. MITIGATING AND MANAGING STRESS. Both physical and mental stress elevate the acidity of the blood. Emotional and psychological tension can be especially damaging to the body's systems. Young Living produces custom blends of pure essential oils which target the limbic-system of the brain and help induce a sense of calming and well-being. One blend called Harmony is especially noted for its stress-relieving properties. Harmony is included in Young Living's Feeling's Kit, a collection of 12 custom-created essential oil blends designed to induce a sense of well-being, peace and grounding.

6. BOOSTING LEVELS OF NATURALLY-OCCURRING BENEFICIAL BACTERIA, so-called "friendly flora." These beneficial bacteria not only help keep fungus, yeast, and hostile invaders in check, but they also generate B vitamins, Vitamin K, and maintain proper pH balance for nutrient rich digestion and absorption. Young Living offers a first-class product called Royaldophilus to replenish the body's reserves of these friendly digestive companions.

Testing Your pH: You can easily test your pH at home by purchasing small litmus- paper strips at your drug store or pharmacy. To get the most accurate reading, expose the strip to a sample of your saliva or urine immediately after awakening in the morning and before eating breakfast. Color changes on the litmus paper will determine pH. Check the instructions of your kit for specific details on how to read the litmus paper.

If you desire more information about this we recommend an excellent book, "Alkalize or Die" details and ordering information may be found at Books Directory Alternative Medicine. There is another book, "Your Health Your Choice by Ted Mortar which is an excellent book too.
