Balance Your pH

Toe To Head Pain

Balance Your pH

Most persons with painful deposits anywhere in their feet

have a morning urine pH of 4.5! At 4.5 it is safe to guess that a

lot has precipitated again in the night. During the day, your body's

pH swings back and forth. The urine gets quite alkaline right after

a meal; this is called the alkaline tide. Three meals a day would

bring you three alkaline tides. During these periods, lasting about

an hour, you have an opportunity to dissolve some of your foot

deposits. But if you allow your pH to drop too low in the night

you put the deposits back again. The net effect decides whether

your deposits grow or shrink.

To alkalinize yourself at bedtime, choose one of these options:

1. Two oyster shell tablets, equaling 750 mg. of calcium plus

a magnesium oxide tablet, 300 mg (see Sources). The

magnesium helps the calcium dissolve and stay in solu

tion. Taking more calcium at one time is not advised because

it cannot be dissolved and absorbed anyway and

might constipate you. For the elderly only one calcium

tablet is advised. Take calcium tablets with vitamin C or

lemon water to help dissolve (¼ tsp. vitamin C powder;

adding honey is fine).

2. One cup of sterilized milk or buttermilk, drunk hot or cold,

plus 1 magnesium oxide tablet, 300 mg. (adding cinnamon

is fine).

If these two remedies work for you, your morning urinary

pH will come up to 6.0 but if for some reason they don't,

you need to take more drastic measures. Take the supplements

and milk earlier in the day and reserve bedtime for:

3. ½ tsp. baking soda in water. This is sodium bicarbonate.

But don't use baking soda from a store because most brands

I have tested are polluted with benzene! (See Sources for

safe baking soda.) Using a combination of sodium and

potassium bicarbonate in a ratio of 2:1 is actually a much

more healthful potion. You can make your own or ask a

pharmacist to make it for you. Mix two parts baking soda

and one part potassium bicarbonate (see Sources) in a jar.

Keep tightly closed. Label it sodium potassium

bicarbonate alkalizer (this potion is also very useful in

allergic reactions of all kinds). Take 1 level tsp. in water

at bedtime. If your pH reaches 6 in the morning continue

each night at this dose. If it does not, take 1½ tsp. Keep

watching your pH, since it will gradually normalize and

you will require less and less. If you are using plain baking

soda, instead of the mixture, watch your pH each morning,

also, so you can cut back when the pH goes higher than 6.

Persons with a limit on their daily sodium intake must carefully

count the grams of baking soda consumed in this way.

Each tsp. weighs about 2 grams, of which half (1 gram or 1000

milligrams is sodium. The sodium/potassium mixture would only

give you half as much sodium (½ gram per tsp.). By comparison,

the usual daily intake of sodium is about 5 gm., although salt

eaters consume twice that amount.

You have done five things to pull the rug out from under the

bacteria living in and around the deposits in your toes. Now

when you kill bacteria with your zapper, you can expect the pain

to go away and stay away.

Locations at the base of toes may be painful due to a neuroma.

Deposits and bacteria here are even more painful because

this is the location of nerve centers. If the build-up is large, you

may prefer some surgical help or a cortisone shot rather than

wait several years for solid relief.
