Why it is important to understand what Acid and Alkaline will do for you?

When they are metabolized, carbohydrates, proteins and fats produce inorganic and organic acids. These acids are all poisonous. We have to eliminate them from our bodies as quickly as possible. However, if these acids substances were eliminated through the kidneys and large intestines those organs would suffer damage from the acid.  The good part is that God created our bodies with the capacity to neutralize those acids by mineral compounds. Together, the mineral compounds and acids produce substances which are not longer poisonous to us and which can be safely eliminated.
The family of mineral compounds, which neutralizes acids, is carbonic salts. When carbonic salts meet strong acids such as sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid (from Proteins), acetic acid and lactic acid, (from Carbohydrates and fats) the alkaline minerals making up the carbonic salt leave the salt and combine with the acids to make new salts.
In short, the acids which are the end product of metabolism can be eliminated only after they are changed to neutral salts. Then they are not longer harmful to the kidney and to the wall of the intestine.
The result of this change from acid to neutral salt reduces the concentration of alkaline elements in the blood and then in the extracellular fluid. It is this lowered concentration of alkaline elements that is referred to as the acidic condition of the body fluid.
Since in order for us to be healthy our body fluid mist be kept at an alkaline level (PH 7.4), we must re-supply the lost alkaline elements through the foods we eat.
One of the important causes of cancer and other degenerative diseases is the cumulative effect of the acidic condition of body fluid.  I believe we can prevent almost all sicknesses, including cancer, if diets are changed considering the acid and alkaline effects of food in our bodies.
Cancer develops in the following stages:
1.      Ingestion of many acid forming foods, fatty foods, protein rich foods, refined foods,  carcinogenic substances such as nitrites, and chemically treated foods in general. X-ray scans contribute even at this stage.
2.      Increased constipation.
3.      Increase acidity in the blood.  This causes an increase of white cells and a decrease of red cells,   which is the beginning of leukemia.
4.      Increase of acidity in the extracellular fluids.
5.      Increase of acidity in the intracellular fluids.
6.      Birth of malignant cells. This is the stage of cancer initiation.
7.      The further consumption of many acid forming foods. Receiving high levels of radiation, chemical, and drug treatment. This is the stage of cancer called promotion.
It is my prayer this information will open the eyes of the readers. I was able to understand more why people are choosing to have a vegetarian diet and why the theory of Yin and Yang on foods.  The principles are the same and God had revealed to us with the Bible.

While I believe God allows afflictions for a reason, I also believe that He gave us the resources and instructions and commanded us to take care of our bodies. Ironically, we believe we know more than our ancestors did, but is this true? Or we have just bitten the apple and believe in the deceitful enemy? Are we really full of knowledge because now we have a drug for every illness and a vaccine for every disease?

I came across this part of the book from David C Pack that I want to add:

There are two opposing concept of treating a disease. The traditional concept of disease is not much different than voodoo. The only difference is that “evil spirits” have been replaced by evil germs, bacteria or viruses. The traditional concept is that disease unpredictably strikes unsuspecting victims -these things people “catch”. The job of modern “medicine man” is to rescue the victim by killing or driving out the evil intruders (the germ or virus) with “magic” medical power from his arsenal of needles and prescriptions.

The newer Biological concept takes exception to traditional symptomatic drug therapy in treating disease. It is based upon irrefutable proof that invading bacteria or viruses are not the primary cause of disease. Rather, it is a weakened resistance, brought about by health-destroying lifestyles. Bacteria enter the picture only in the larger stages. They help terminate organisms lacking a strong defense against them. Strong immunity is common to all healthy organisms.
Rather than treating the symptoms with drugs, the biological concept emphasizes finding and correcting the cause of the disease. The results are sometimes realized quickly. Other times, results take longer to appear. In a nutshell, the cause-and-effect approach has been far more successful that treating the symptoms.
