Acid Levels

Oxygen must first jump onto its raft, the hemoglobin, in the

lungs. Later, in the brain, oxygen must jump off again to enter the

brain cells. A difference in acid levels makes this possible. Acid

levels operate the latching system that decides whether oxygen

will be attached to hemoglobin or let go! Acidity unlatches

oxygen. There should be no acidity in the lungs so oxygen can

attach here. Sometimes, the entire body is too acid! Diabetics,

asthmatics, arthritics, especially, suffer from total body acidity.

Acid was meant to be removed from the blood and loaded

into the stomach at mealtime for digestion. When this isn't happening,

it was meant to be shipped out of the body with the urine.

But the kidneys may be doing a poor job because they are

clogged with tiny crystals and because not enough water is drunk,

so the body's acid levels rise. You can test total body acidity by

measuring the pH of the morning urine. It should not be under

(more acid than) 5.5. If the body acid level is too high, help the

kidneys excrete it by adding more water to the diet and more

minerals to neutralize the acid. The main minerals for this

purpose are calcium and magnesium.
