HYDROTHERAPY AND DIET
CHRONIC INCURABLE DISEASES INCLUDING CANCER
Over a century ago, Americans started the most costly experiment in history — living on refined foods, using synthetic drugs for medicine and discontinuing the general use of herbs. These practices have proven to be disastrous to the general health of the nations. Only Nature can repair and maintain that which She has built, namely—our bodies.
The combination of medicinal plants and roots have been successfully used for the Russian Olympic athletes and for people with chronic degenerative diseases such as arthritis, bronchial asthma, cardiovascular heart problems, tumors, skin diseases, allergies, sinuses, migraine headaches, and insomnia.
Specific Mineral Bath formula from the combination of the plants and roots has been used successfully for centuries in Europe.
This bath formula and a proper diet are the quickest and effective therapy for improving blood circulation, vitality and restoration of the body.
The most important points to know are:
1) How to neutralize and eliminate toxic-acid waste products through hydrotherapy.
2) How to improve functions of the most important organs participating in elimination of the waste products, (liver, kidney, skin, blood circulation, and intestinal tract).
3) How to maintain normal acid-alkali balance in the human body by using just mineral baths and proper diet.
There are many factors which affect blood pH such as diet, exercise, thoughts and emotions. Acidosis is the condition caused by an accumulation of an excess of acid in the body tissues and blood, or an excessive loss of mineral elements from the body. Acidosis is a basic health problem which causes many chronic diseases and obstacles in sporting activities. On a long term basis, overacidity may lead to serious health problems. Common symptoms of acidosis are increased heart rate, restlessness, dry skin, hard stools, loss of appetite, headaches, sleeplessness, acid urine, strong perspiration, acid mouth and stomach, lassitude, diminished muscle activities and strength, arthritis and allergies. This condition blocks absorption of minerals and vitamins; thus, trace minerals are greatly decreased in the body from its inability to get the proper nutrients and energy out of food. The more acid in your blood (pH less than 7.36) the more destruction occurs to certain C which would weaken the tissues and gastric juices. Weak gastric juices cause blood acidity, which may render the liver unable to manufacture enzymes because of insufficient minerals in the body.
The main causes for overacidity are:
1) Overeating acid forming foods (see food table)
2) Eating at night
3) Improperly cooked foods (too much fried, over -cooked meals)
4) Food too cold or too hot; food prepared with aluminum utensils
5) Chronic degenerative diseases and infections
6) Stress and negative emotions
7) Lack of oxygen and lack of physical activities
8) Overexertion of nervous system and muscular activities
Alkalosis is a condition caused by an accumulation of mineral elements or loss of acid from the body. It is, therefore, vitally important that there is a proper ratio between acid and alkaline foods in the diet. The natural ratio in a normal, healthy body is approximately 4 to 1. When such an ideal ratio is maintained, the body has a strong resistance against any disease and high vitality and muscle strength. The higher the alkaline mineral ratio in the diet and the blood, the faster the recovery will be from physical activity and an increase of endurance in muscle strength. Alkali minerals neutralize the acids. Therefore, in the treatment of most health problems, it is important that the diet include plenty of alkaline foods.
Although a healthy, strong body usually keeps large alkaline reserves which are used to meet the emergency demands when too many acids are formed, these normal reserves can be depleted and jeopardize one’s health when the alkaline-acid ratio drops to 3 to 1. The body will function normally and sustain health only in the presence of adequate alkaline reserves and the proper acid alkaline ratio in the blood and all tissues.
SPORT AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES
During the first stages of moderate or maximum exercise, when the oxygen demand is greatest, the lactic acid and metabolic products from a resting level of about 20 mg % increases to 100 mg and even 200 mg %. The body must immediately neutralize the overacidity by eliminating the harmful materials in order to maintain strong immunity, vitality, and muscle strength.
The basic source of physiological lactic acid production and metabolism in the blood is muscular contraction, during which glycogen is first broken down to lactic acid. During physical activities, lactic acid and waste metabolism continue to accumulate until the exercise must be discontinued because of fatigue, poor circulation and oxygenation. Some amounts are resynthesized to glycogen when energy is provided by oxidation and quick alcolinization (organic mineralization) of the blood through diet and mineral baths.
Under any heavy physical activities, an elevated quantity of lactic acid is in the blood and excreted by the kidneys. There is, therefore, an increase in lactic acid and ammonia in the urine collected during and after a period of exercise. Lactic acid displaces CO from the base (alkali) with which it is combined and forms acidosis (overacidity). This results in the increased respiratory output of CO and the fall in the alkali reserve. Accumulation of metabolic toxins in the active muscles and lactic acid produces fatigue, diminishes strength and physical activity.
ALKALI ACID FORMING FOODS
In order to help the body prevent diseases or assist the body’s healing activity, diet must consist exclusively of organically grown foods which are free from chemicals. Most foods must be eaten in the natural, raw state, at least 60% to 70%. Certain foods such as soy beans, buckwheat, millet, rice, and dried beans could be cooked. Emphasis should be on raw vegetables, fruits, nuts and sprouted seeds and grains.
A moderate amount of easily digested proteins such as fish, nuts, cottage cheese, soy bean milk, sourmilk, goat milk (which is better than cow milk) can be taken.
Improper food combining and overeating is one of the main reasons why so many people have an excess weight problem. Fluids should not be consumed along with a meal, because they wash many of the digestive juices from the stomach. Bear in mind, anything which upsets the ratio of acid alkali in the body chemistry will disturb the autonomic nervous system the sympathetic and parasympathetic balance which normally works in harmony and equilibrium.
