Alkalizing and “The Terrain”

What is meant by alkalizing an “unbalanced terrain”Alkalizing the terrain

The term “terrain” was coined by French physiologist Claude Bernard in the 19th century, who used the term for the body’s internal environment. Since the body comprises mostly water, the terrain of the body is in essence an aqueous medium. This includes the blood, lymph and the fluids inside of and between the cells.

The state of the terrain is determined by four factors, namely: its acid/alkaline balance (alkalizing is important here), its electric/magnetic charge; its level of poisoning and its nutritional status (including oxygenation).

The condition of the terrain is absolutely central to the balance between health and disease. We can easily understand the notion that unhealthy soil will yield unhealthy, disease ridden plants, while healthy soil will produce strong, healthy plants.

The same concept applies when we look at the terrain of the body: if it is balanced it will promote health and if it is unbalanced it will lead to disease. Read more

acid alkaline saliva and urine test



1. First, upon waking test your saliva with the pH test paper.

When you get out of bed, wet the end of a pH test strip with your saliva.
Note the colour change and write down the pH number.
Do this before brushing your teeth, drinking, smoking, or even thinking of eating any food.
The optimum saliva pH should be 7.2. Read more


Alkalize or Die!

Why alkalize?

A 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. Many of the hip fractures among middle-aged women are connected to high acidity caused by a diet rich in animal foods and low in vegetables. – American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

pH balancing and alkalizing

pH Balancing and Alkalizing

“The single measurement most important to your health is the pH of your blood and tissues – how acidic or alkaline it is.”

pH measures the degree of acidity-alkalinity of the blood and tissues (measured by the pH scale from 0 to 14), this is an important indicator of your health.

Oxygen is critical to health, and lack of it has been linked to numerous diseases. Hemoglobin is the substance in the blood that transports your vital oxygen. Read more

Your Blood – Why is it So Important?

Your Blood – Why is it So Important?
Your blood could be viewed as the river of life; it is the substance that carries oxygen, water and nutrients to all your organs and tissues.

It therefore makes perfect sense, that imbalances seen in the blood will affect the organs and tissues, leading to malfunction and imbalance. Read more
