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
*Fatigue...Low energy/Unexplained aches and pains/Overweight conditions
Low resistance to illness/Allergies/Unbalanced blood sugar/Headaches
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
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.

an excellent book too.
