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

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
