High Stomach Acid is Your Friend: The Surprising Secret to Beating Aging and Boosting Health!

Proper levels of acid in the human body are crucial for optimal health. But not all acid is the same, and understanding the differences is incredibly important. Remember these three points:

  1. Acid in your stomach — good.
  2. Acid in your tissue — bad.
  3. Acid water to cleanse your face — good.

Acid in the stomach is good

Pharmaceutical companies and TV advertisers often tell us that stomach acid is bad. While it is bad if we don’t have any, and if we take their antacids as they insist, we won’t have any stomach acid, and we will eventually wind up with stomach cancer. Without proper stomach acid, which should be around a pH of 3 to 4, our food rots, causing putrefaction and backup poison. This can lead to disease, most likely cancer. Your digestive process breaks down if you don’t have enough stomach acid. Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is the only inorganic acid our body makes.

Dogs can eat all kinds of compromised foods and thrive because they have lower pH stomach acid levels, which are about 1.5 to 2. They can digest and process much better than human beings, and they don’t take antacids. Adequate stomach acid becomes even more critical as we get older because we have less of it. A decreased amount of acid is linked to less nutrition assimilation and a lowered immunity.

But once again, pharmaceuticals and doctors often only focus on the symptoms. Symptoms of acid indigestion in the absence of ulcers usually signify a lack of acid. Without enough hydrochloric acid, we cannot absorb minerals or digest protein. When our digestive capacity diminishes as we age, we can compensate with betaine hydrochloride which should be taken with meals. Alternatively, it’s also helpful to take 1 or 2 teaspoons of whole apple cider vinegar in a glass of water before meals.

Hydrochloric acid can have numerous health benefits when administered correctly. It’s been shown that the oxygen content of the blood can double within 30 minutes when administered, and a significant increase in white blood cell count occurs as well. This is not the effect of drug activity – this is the injection of the basic acid of the human body. The conclusion is that hydrochloric stomach acid needs to be adequate at all times for optimal health.

Acid in the tissue is bad

The ideal situation is for the body to be slightly alkaline. But due to our high-acid diet from commercial foods, our acid buildup gets worse over time. With progressive acid accumulation, we come closer to death. Babies are highly alkaline. Acid in the tissue is very different from acid in the stomach. The difference is the pH. Tissue acid should range around 7.2 to 7.4 pH, as measured by pH paper or test strips using saliva.

Acid in the stomach is inorganic acid, while acid in the tissue is organic acid. One is essential for life and assimilation, and the other is pollution. As we age, we accumulate more acid, causing a shortage of oxygen and breath. Most cells die in an acidic environment, but some cells survive by becoming abnormal cells, which can lead to cancer.

To increase oxygen levels and dispose of acid waste, we should drink alkaline water and eat an alkaline diet. The amount of organic acid accumulation is directly related to the amount of oxygen we have. The more acid you have, the less oxygen your body has and the more potential for disease.

When the environment for cells becomes too acidic, there isn’t enough oxygen to go around. In order for some cells to survive, they selectively change to take in carbon dioxide (CO2) and give off oxygen (O2). This sets the stage for cancer. But when we drink alkaline water, we’re drinking water with excess oxygen, not in the form of O2 but in the form of OH, which is very stable because it’s paired with positively ionized alkaline minerals.

Two hydroxyl ions can form a water molecule (H2O) and give off one oxygen atom. The alkaline mineral is used to detoxify poisonous acid compounds while supplying excess oxygen to the cells, preventing the development of cancer. In summary, it’s important to maintain optimal levels of acid in both the stomach and tissues, as well as drinking alkaline water and eating an alkaline-based diet in order to achieve the best health possible.
