The body simply does not lie!
Acidity is silently eroding your health, and you don t even know it!
It was Easter Sunday 2007 when our Ärst story about overcoming acidity appeared in the Sunday papers. And what a response we had. Never in our wildest dreams did we anticipate how many people would relate to the problems associated with acidity and want help to overcome them.
Soon after the feature appeared, stories from the public started Åooding in. Multiforce is my friend! My Ängers are no longer stiff after a morning of cycling and I can play the piano again. My acid attacks are something of the past. Back ache and pain has disappeared. My sugar craving is under control and I am not binging anymore. My tummy has never felt so good. Constipation is a distant memory. My headaches have gone... The list went on.
What is going on in the body, then, that so many difÄculties can be eased by a formula like Multiforce? It s no mystery.
Everything we eat, breathe, drink , feel, think , say, do and absorb has a chemical impact on the body but the process basically has one of two results. It either supports the body or weakens it. If the body is weakened or damaged, high levels of acidity can set in that need to be neutralised. If the body is unable to do this, the acidity accumulates and develops into a chronic state which is the breeding ground for disease and degeneration. This is known as acidosis.
If left uncontrolled, this ongoing acid state can lead to negative consequences for just about every part of the body. Naturopaths and a growing number of pathologists, bio-chemists and specialists see disease as being triggered in the body when our blood and intracellular Åuids become too acidic. In the words of one doctor: The countless names of illness do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause... Too much acid waste in the body.
Germs need an acidic environment
The famous Dr Louis Pasteur formulated the germ theory of disease that identiÄed germs as the cause of disease. He revised this shortly before his death however, declaring: The germ is nothing, the inner terrain is everything. And germs need an acidic environment in which to Åourish! All sorts of problems are being associated with acidosis: from gout, arthritis, rheumatism, skin rashes, eczema, psoriasis, indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea and Åatulence to headaches, raised blood pressure, body pain, rapid aging, bad breath and smelly feet! Diabetes can follow and, some believe, even cancer.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported on a seven year study of 9 000 women completed at the University of California, San Francisco. It showed that those women who had chronic acidosis were at greater risk for bone loss than those with normal pH levels. (pH is a measure of acid-alkaline levels in the body.) The researchers believed that many of the hip fractures occurring in older women could be connected to high acidity caused by a diet rich in animal foods and low in vegetables because the body has to borrow calcium from the bones in order to balance pH.
Let s look at acidity a little more. It s a state which Åuctuates constantly in the blood and body Åuids and develops as a normal by-product of eating, drinking and breathing. >From our Ärst to our last breath, our bodies are constantly trying to regulate the blood pH to a slightly alkaline level.
All the trillions of cells that make up our body are slightly alkaline and require alkalinity to function and remain healthy and alive. Although ordinary cellular activity causes acidity, it must not be allowed to build up. Look at the example of the body making lactic
acid when we exercise. This form of acid needs to be neutralised and eliminated otherwise it can lead to degeneration of tissue and bones.
Acidity also causes a lack of oxygen in the cells which creates the perfect breeding ground for germs - from funguses and bacteria to viruses. Cancer is also thought to thrive in an anaerobic (lack of oxygen) environment. Germs are ever present in the body and if it remains too acidic, the germs become active and we become ill. What is healthy for us is unhealthy for the bad organisms and what is healthy for them is unhealthy for our body.
Minerals and water are essential
The human body is wonderfully intelligent. To correct the pH balance in the blood and cellular Åuids, it uses the kidneys, lungs, skin and colon. And of these four organs, the kidneys are most important to correct the acid/alkaline balance. The body uses calcium, magnesium, potassium and water to neutralise and excrete acidity, so we need to drink between two and three litres of water daily and to eat foods rich in minerals. When the ratio of alkaline to acidic foods eaten daily becomes compromised, the body uses reserves in the bones and teeth to keep the pH of the blood and cellular Åuids balanced. If your Åuids become totally acidic, cells begin to die - and the whole body is put at risk . This is what we call degeneration of the body!
What exactly in the diet causes acidity? The answer is simple: anything that makes you thirsty could make you acidic. Too much salt, sugar, processed foods and drinks, coffee, tea, alcohol, medication, Äzzy drinks and even illnesses such as diabetes make
you thirsty. Which is why drinking enough water is so important. To achieve a measure of good health in life and longevity, it stands to reason that one s lifestyle should match the requirements of the body as closely as possible so we need a diet of alkalising foods. Organic fruit, vegetables and whole grains are top of the list. Rest, exercise and living joyfully all contribute to the wellbeing of the whole which can help prevent acidosis from striking.
Another useful fact about the pH balance of the body is that in order for you to get optimal absorption of nutrients from the food you eat, you need to be pH balanced. So there is an important circle that we can maintain. And Multiforce can help you do so.
Multiforce is a mineral supplement which contains macro minerals required by every body, every day to stay well. It is a mixture of the minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium together with plant calcium and acerola vitamin C to assist with absorption in the body and the cleansing potential which it releases in the cells. We all need these minerals every day. A wholesome diet of natural rather than reÄned or processed foods will supply most of the body s mineral requirements but the problem is that few people eat such a diet. The result is poor quality health.
I believe that Multiforce is an essential part of a modern healthy lifestyle. Regular use will ensure that you are wearing full mineral armour! Take a teaspoonful of your macro minerals in a glass of water every day and you will be helping your body. No more acid attacks or chronic acidosis for you: only balance, alkalinity and good health, day after day.
