Fight Lyme Disease With Balanced
The body is like a fish tank. Imagine
what happens when the filter stops working after a
week, or a month. Now try to imagine that fish tank after not
being filtered for years. This scenario is similar to what happens
to our blood when the pH isn’t balanced. The fish in our “body”
tank are our cells and the fish water is our body fluids, which transport food and remove
Is it any wonder that destructive yeast, parasites and bacteria
thrive in such a murky environment?
Basically, this is a small example of what we are doing to our
internal fluids every day if we don’t eat properly. We are fouling them with pollution, smoking, alcohol,
drugs, excessive intake of food, over-consumption of acid-forming foods, and any number of transgressions
which compromise the delicate balance of our internal fluids.
A body with balanced pH is neither too acidic, or too alkaline too
much alkaline can cause terrible health consequences. However, most of us are exteremely acidic
due to our diet and lifestyle.
Some of us have fish tanks (bodies) that are barely able to
support life, yet we somehow manage to struggle from day to day, building more sever imbalances until there
is the inevitable crash and debilitating chronic, disturbing and disorganizing symptoms to deal
The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal
fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the
body. In fact, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal pH.
A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating
into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating into marble. If left unchecked, it will
interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your

book “Sick &
the over-acidification of the body is the single underlying cause of all
In summary, acid terrains in our bodies either cause or at the
very least feed all health problems such as:
Perhaps one of Dr. Young's most well known discoveries is his
theory of the cause of overweight. He has shown that fat is actually an over-acidification problem.
How can that be?
The body creates fat cells to carry acids away from your vital
organs, so these acids literally don't choke your organs to death. Fat is saving your life! Fat is actually
a response from the body to an alarming over-acidic condition.
Healthy bodies are not overweight or
underweight . A healthy body naturally maintains its own ideal weight. As
alkalizing and oxygenation begins to take place, the body naturally begins to seek its own ideal
The toxins produced within an overly acidic, oxygen deprived
body may contribute significantly to what are often called the symptoms of allergy. In addition, the absorption of
undigested proteins is a major cause of allergy conditions. The digestive system is weakened, which prevents the
total breakdown of amino acids - often causing food allergies. This alone may produce a wide spectrum of severe
Fatigue is probably the major symptom or complaint of an overly
acidic body. The toxins produced in an acidic body environment reduce the absorption of protein and minerals, which
in turn weakens the body's ability to produce enzymes and hormones. This also interferes with the reconstruction of
cells and other necessary components of energy production. The result is fatigue, poor endurance, an inability to
add muscle tone, and general weakness.
Most of all western medicine focuses on the germ, not the
terrain, in spite of the evidence that has been discovered by hundreds of scientists in addition to Dr.
Young. Study after study agrees with patient testimonials from Dr. Young
and others that when the body is in healthy alkaline balance, germs are unable to get a
How do we balance our body’s pH?
The first important consideration in correcting our body’s pH
balance is water.
Like the earth on which we live, our bodies are 70% water.
Food cravings are often the body's cry for water. You can test this by
tossing down a glass of water the next time you feel hunger pains between planned meals. Conversely, you will notice that hunger
pains taper off when your body is properly hydrated.
Obviously diet is a big part of balancing our
pH. According to Dr.
Young the more green vegetables you can eat the better – six to eight servings per day. Of course they must
be organic and free of any possible toxins, and they need to be absolutely
This presents an enormousl problem for those of us with Lyme
· Effort involved in going to the market
· Financial burden of purchasing vast quantities of organic
· Effort preparing vegetables.
I solve all of these problems with Progreens, but there are several good ones on the
One serving of a high quality Greens Drink like Progreens can
replace the required servings of fruit and vegetables; bringing you vital nutrient elements and easily digested
In addition, the following diet guidelines should be
Acid forming foods to avoid:
v Meats especially processed
v All refined packaged
v All ready-made meals including
“fat-free”, “organic” and “all natural”
v Breads and pastas made from white

Dont wait until the frightening symptoms of sickness begin to
shadow your steps.
Instead nurture your health and take proactive steps to provide
your body with the essential nutrients, along with natural energy-enhancers to give you abounding energy from
the moment you wake up to the instant you drift off to sleep.
