The Alkaline Myth & Hype Exposed
One of the things that really irritates me is the brainwashing people have over the “alkaline this” and “alkaline that”. I got caught up in it eight years ago with the Kangen water machine MLM hype. I even mentioned it in my book (Healyourself 101) and it’s the only thing I regret telling people.
We live and learn. There are many people so caught up in this hype, they will no doubt have resistance to this information, but it’s my duty to help clear the confusion. Many don’t want to believe they’ve been duped and made to look like a fool to their friends. They think they got better from drinking alkaline water, when in fact it was the change in their diet and lifestyle that really made the difference. The water machine has it’s use, but not for what you might think. Watch the video.
Alkaline water neutralizes stomach acid, which is needed not only to digest food and assimilate nutrients, but also to kill pathogenic organisms. Without proper stomach acid levels, food doesn’t digest properly, it ferments, rots, creates gas, bloating and causes all kind of gastric health problems.
Without proper stomach acid for example, your body could not absorb silica, the key ingredient for making skin, hair, cells and everything else. Getting wrinkles and losing hair? I’ll bet your stomach acid is too weak. You also can’t absorb B12 without it. Most people in the modern world have very weak stomach acid, which results in all kinds of problems.

They are no longer protected from bacteria, viruses, fungus, mold, yeast and parasites. One opportunistic invader causing a lot of problems is H. Pylori (helicobacter Pylori bacteria), a nasty corkscrew-shaped organism that literally drills itself into your stomach wall and starts emitting a powerful ALKALINE ammonia to neutralize the stomach acid so it can thrive. Did you hear that alkaline fans? The bacteria WANTS you to be alkaline so it can grow, leading to ulcers and possible deadly diseases.
Our friendly probiotic intestinal flora (the “good” bacteria) on the other hand produces lactic and acetic ACID to make the gut more acidic to keep the candida yeast under control. Hmmm. Think about that. The good guys produce acid and the bad guys produce alkaline ammonia.
Acid KILLS bacteria and turns off the yeast growth gene. Bacteria and pathogens thrive in an alkaline environment (the opposite of what the alkaline hype is saying). Read the scientific links below. Yeast starts to grow like crazy in an alkaline environment so strongly, it grows hyphae (tentacles) that burrow through your intestinal walls leading to leaky-gut syndrome which lets foreign-proteins into your bloodstream leading to allergic reactions, reduced energy and auto-immune disease.
Runaway yeast then mutates into fungus which grows through the whole body, slowly eating it alive. Acids turn OFF the yeast growth gene. Acids protect your skin and all body parts from the outside world.
Without an acidic environment, women would die if they had sex. Most men are filthy. That’s why the vagina is naturally acidic. Our skin would be eaten alive by bacteria floating in the air. Our skin is therefore acidic to protect us.
The same goes for our sinuses and digestive system. The only parts of our body that need to be alkaline is basically our mouth and blood because otherwise our teeth and bones would dissolve from acids. That is why our blood is SLIGHTLY alkaline (7.35) so our bones don’t dissolve. Our body regulates blood pH so well, blood pH never changes. It can’t because it it went up or down just a few percent, we would die. There is no “overall” body pH. Every body part requires it’s own level to perform it’s designed function.

People think they can manipulate their body’s pH by eating more “alkaline” foods. Chelated natural plant foods are NOT the same as alkaline water. Watch the video and pay attention. The main message here is to stop wasting time worrying what pH your food is, and start paying attention to if it’s natural or not. In other words- are you eating fruits and vegetables, or bread, pasta, sugar and other crap? THAT’S what you should be focussing on, not pH. Your body does a perfect job regulating pH. Forget testing your urine or saliva. It’s a waste of time.
Urine and saliva pH testing has NOTHING to do with your blood pH. pH testing does NOT show what your pH is inside your body. What you are measuring is what your body is getting RID of. In other words, if you have too many alkaline substances in your body, it will get rid of those, and that’s what you’re measuring, not what’s actually left inside your body. Watch the video and learn.
We are MADE of amino ACIDS. Our body runs on acids. Vitamins are acids. Acids protect us from pathogens. The dirtiest part of the body is the mouth, which is alkaline. It’s FULL of bacteria, some of it deadly if it gets into the bloodstream via bleeding gums. Watch the video and listen closely. Stop following what people with agendas are trying to convince you (especially MLM people!).[Markus Heal 101]
That said, the pH water machine DOES have it’s place, but not where you think. It’s the ACID water you should be using, not the alkaline- and NOT for drinking, but for washing your hands, body, hair and clothes. It’s great for disinfecting countertops, fruits and vegetables. I am not knocking the machine, just how it’s used. Not having to wash our clothes with detergent or using chemicals in the kitchen is a BIG DEAL !
Stop listening to doctors and people with PhDs, they are killing people by the millions in this country. They can spew all the facts, figures and fancy jargon they want. Watch the video- test results are usually manipulated to back up someone’s agenda. Too many people have been needlessly brainwashed and killed by what people in lab coats have told us and done to us. I was one of the people who tried the alkaline thing years ago and regret it hugely. Follow common sense. It’s not alkaline water that’s healing people- it’s the better diet and lifestyle changes.
Remember- you don’t heal disease by TAKING something. To heal you must STOP doing what caused the problem in the first place. Stop eating things that are not found in nature. Walk away from the stress and negative people that are killing you. Stop sugar which feeds pathogens and cancer. Stop looking for magic cures and use common sense. Just put things in your body that you find in nature- spring water, fruits, vegetables, greens, seeds, nuts, etc and stop all bread, pasta, sugar, cheese, milk, cereal, processed and cooked foods as much as you can.
It’s that simple. Stop counting calories, carbs, proteins and pH levels. Animals in nature don’t do that and they are much happier and healthier than humans. Simplify your life, don’t complicate it. I am here to help take stress out of your life, not add to it. Be free. Be happy. Eat. Love. Live.

Even if you don’t drink alkaline water, if you live in the modern world, chances are your stomach acid is too low. Find out what causes it and what to do about it in my stomach ebook, available here-

Bottom line- you don’t have to believe any of the alkaline-acid stuff. Just eat things you find in nature (not bread, pasta, candybars, cheese,sugar etc) Don’t mess with nature. It has everything figured out. The more you deviate from the way you were designed, the more trouble you are asking for. The healthiest people in the world don’t have alkaline water machines. They drink spring water, even better, add Fulvic Acid (minerals), Sea Salt and lemon juice.
