Over acidity, which can become a dangerous condition that weakens all body systems, is very common today. It gives rise to an internal environment conducive to disease, as opposed to a pH balanced environment which allows normal body function necessary for the body to resist disease. A healthy body maintains adequate alkaline reserves to meet emergency demands. When excess acids must be neutralized our alkaline reserves are depleted leaving the body in a weakened condition. A pH balanced diet, according to many experts, is a vital key to health maintenance.
The concept of acid alkaline imbalance as the cause of disease is not new. In 1933 a New York doctor named William Howard Hay published a ground-breaking book, A New Health Era in which he maintains that all disease is caused by autotoxication (or “self-poisoning”) due to acid accumulation in the body:Now we depart from health in just the proportion to which we have allowed our alkalies to be dissipated by introduction of acid-forming food in too great amount… It may seem strange to say that all disease is the same thing, no matter what its myriad modes of expression, but it is verily so.?William Howard Hay, M.D.
More recently, in his remarkable book Alkalize or Die, Dr. Theodore A. Baroody says essentially the same thing:The countless names of 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!? Theodore A. Baroody, N.D., D.C., Ph.D.
pH (potential of hydrogen) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14?the lower the pH the more acidic the solution, the higher the pH the more alkaline (or base) the solution. When a solution is neither acid nor alkaline it has a pH of 7 which is neutral.
Water is the most abundant compound in the human body, comprising 70% of the body. The body has an acid-alkaline (or acid-base) ratio called the pH which is a balance between positively charges ions (acid-forming) and negatively charged ions (alkaline-forming.) The body continually strives to balance pH. When this balance is compromised many problems can occur.
It is important to understand that we are not talking about stomach acid or the pH of the stomach. We are talking about the pH of the body’s fluids and tissues which is an entirely different matter.
Test Your Body’s Acidity or Alkalinity with pH Strips:
It is recommended that you test your pH levels to determine if your body’s pH needs immediate attention. By using pH test strips, you can determine your pH factor quickly and easily in the privacy of your own home. If your urinary pH fluctuates between 6.0 to 6.5 in the morning and between 6.5 and 7.0 in the evening, your body is functioning within a healthy range. If your saliva stays between 6.5 and 7.5 all day, your body is functioning within a healthy range. The best time to test your pH is about one hour before a meal and two hours after a meal. Test your pH two days a week.
Most people who suffer from unbalanced pH are acidic. This condition forces the body to borrow minerals?including calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium?from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralize) the acid and safely remove it from the body. Because of this strain, the body can suffer severe and prolonged damage due to high acidity?a condition that may go undetected for years.
Mild acidosis can cause such problems as:
Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and the reduction of oxygen.
Weight gain, obesity and diabetes.
Bladder and kidney conditions, including kidney stones.
Acceleration of free radical damage, possibly contributing to cancerous mutations.
Osteoporosis; weak, brittle bones, hip fractures and bone spurs.Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup.Low energy and chronic fatigue.
Slow digestion and elimination.
pH and Bone Loss
A recent seven-year study conducted at the University of California, San Francisco, on 9,000 women showed that those who have chronic acidosis are at greater risk for bone loss than those who have normal pH levels. The scientists who carried out this experiment believe that many of the hip fractures prevalent among middle-aged women are connected to high acidity caused by a diet rich in animal foods and low in vegetables. This is because the body borrows calcium from the bones in order to balance pH. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
Urine testing may indicate how well your body is excreting acids and assimilating minerals, especially calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. These minerals function as “buffers.” Buffers are substances that help maintain and balance the body against the introduction of too much acidity or too much alkalinity. Even with the proper amounts of buffers, acid or alkaline levels can become extreme. When the body ingests or produces too many of these acids or alkalis, it must excrete the excess. The urine is the perfect way for the body to remove any excess acids or alkaline substances that cannot be buffered. If the average urine pH is below 6.5 the body’s buffering system is overwhelmed, a state of “autotoxication” exists, and attention should be given to lowering acid levels.
The results of saliva testing may indicate the activity of digestive enzymes in the body. These enzymes are primarily manufactured by the stomach, liver and pancreas. While the saliva also utilizes buffers just like the urine, it relies on this process to a much lesser degree. If the saliva pH is too low (below 6.5), the body may be producing too many acids or may be overwhelmed by acids because it has lost the ability to adequately remove them through the urine. If the saliva pH is too high (over 6.8), the body may suffer greatly, e.g. excess gas, constipation and production of yeast, mold and fungus. Some people will have acidic pH readings from both urine and saliva?this is referred to as “double acid.”
Restoring pH Balance in the Body
Your body is able to assimilate minerals and nutrients properly only when its pH is balanced. It is therefore possible for you to be taking healthy nutrients and yet be unable to absorb or use them. If you are not getting the results you expected from your nutritional or herbal program, look for an acid alkaline imbalance. Only the right herbal program may work if your body’s pH is out of balance. Intervene Herbal will balance your body’s pH level!
Change Your pH Balance from Acidic to Alkaline
By far the most common imbalance seen in our society is over acidity. If your urine and/or saliva test below 6.5 pH start with steps 1 through 5 below and continue adding steps until desired results are achieved. Be sure to monitor your progress with easy-to-use pH test strips. Start using Intervene Herbal immediately while monitoring.

What Causes Me to be Acidic?
The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the typical western diet, which is far too high in acid-producing animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline-producing foods like fresh vegetables. Additionally, we eat acid-producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid-producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks. We use too many drugs, which are acid-forming; and we use artificial chemical sweetners like NutraSweet, Equal, or aspartame, which are extremely acid-forming. One of the best things we can do to correct an overly-acid body is to clean up the diet and lifestyle. Refer to the recommended reading for specific help with diet and lifestyle.
Note that a food’s acid or alkaline-forming tendency in the body has nothing to do with the actual pH of the food itself. For example, lemons are very acidic, however the end-products they produce after digestion and assimilation are very alkaline so lemons are alkaline-forming in the body. Likewise, meat will test alkaline before digestion but it leaves very acidic residue in the body so, like nearly all animal products, meat is very acid-forming.

Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field covering the design, manipulation, characterisation, production and application of structures, devices and systems at nanometer sacle (1 : 500nm size range). At this size range they present unique or superior physicochemical properties. This scale represents that of atoms, molecules and macromolecules. The application of nanotechnology in the heath care sector, inimgaging, diagnostics, drug delivery and therapeutics, also referred to as nanomedicine, has gained ground over the past 5 years. This can be observed from the increase in the USA budget for nanomedicine research, as well as an increase in the number of nano-pharmaceutical patents. Nanomedicine has been applied since the 1960’s, with the first lipid vesicles known as liposomes. The current growth in this field is mainly due to the advances in nano science in better approaches of molecular assembly and the design of more controlled and efficient nanomaterial. The field of drug development experience very low success rates with regards to drugs that enter market. These shortfalls are due to factors such as toxicity of the therapeutic compounds, non specificity, poor solubility leading to lowered bioavailabity and thus reduced efficacy.
Size as the main factor improves properties – Size Matters
The sub-micron size of nanoparticles offers a number of distinct advantages over microparticles particularly in drug delivery due to the fact that these particles are in the size region of macromolecules. The physical characteristics, particularly for particles less tahn 100 nm in size allows these particles to reach virtually all tissues in the body. Nanoparticles have in general, relatively higher intracellular uptake compared to microparticles. This was demonstatrated by Desai et al. (1997), whereby 100 nm size nanoparticles showed a 2.5 fold greater up-take compared to 1 um and 6 fold higher up take compared to 10 um microparticles in caco-2 cell line. This aspect of intracellular uptake is more critical for intracellular pathogens such as infectious diseases, where the drug needs to act intracellularly. Thus by nanoencapsulating the product, one can attain intracellular delivery. Furthermore these particles can cross barriers that in general make it difficult for conventional therapeutic compounds to reach the target.
Reports on nano-particles crossing the blood brain barrier (BBB), the stomach epithelial and even the skin have been presented. When orally taken, free therapeutic agents are absorbed into the systematic circulation via the portal blood and undergo first pass metabolism, leading to poor bioavailability of drugs. However, when in a Nan format, transport of these products will, in addition to entry via the portal blood, be through the Peuer’s patches, followed by uptake via the M cells, entry into the intestinal lymphatic transport and thus into systemic circulation. This mode of transport, which includes, endocytosis and phagocytosis will thus minimise the first pass hepatic metabolism of the therapeutic agents, therefore improving their bioavailability.
The nanocarriers can also be optimised to nanoencapsulate both hydrophilic and hydrophobic therapeutic compounds. In addition, nano sized particles have very high surface area per unit volume, and this has revolutionised the field of delivery through improved bioavailability of most therapeutic compounds that generally have poor bioavailability.

The importance of pH Balance
By nature, most foods have a high pH (are alkaline), but manufactured processed foods have a low pH (are acidic). It is important that daily dietary intake of food naturally balances body pH. To maintain optimal health, each meal should contain a balance of 75% alkaline to 25% acidic food substances.
Disease and infection are able to proliferate when the body’s pH is low (too acidic). This is often as a result of acid forming foods, high fat, mucus forming foods, and toxic food residues. Examples can be seen in cases of arthritis and rheumatic situations. There is extensive research showing that cancer exists and flourishes in an acidic environment, and it deteriorates and dies in an alkaline environment. Making the body more alkaline is important in fighting many kinds of diseases. So, focus on alkalising for health!
However this is easier said than done, our modern lifestyle and diet makes it very difficult indeed to maintain a healthy pH balance. Supplementing your diet with Intervene Herbal which has an alkalinity of 10.7 can help keep a healthy balance which in turn greatly assists the body’s defences and natural healing mechanisms.
