Re: Urine is waste being removed from the body so would always be acidic surely? Why would it ever be alkaline, surely then you are pissing your bones (alkaline) out?
Urine pH isn’t an indicator of what happens in most of the rest of the body.
According to the Times of India (Jul. 7, 2021) …
“It may come as a surprise but it is important for our bones too as 50 percent of our bones are protein in terms of volume. Good quality protein intake prevents ageing. The hair, nails and skin are mainly made of protein, and its deficiency can lead to brittle nails and hair fall. It can also cause edema.”
Edema is an over-alkaline syndrome.
Tim Arnett (“Regulation of bone cell function by acid-base balance,” The Proceedings of the Nutrition Society, May 2003) wrote …
“Bone growth and turnover results from the coordinated activities of two key cell types. Bone matrix is deposited and mineralised by osteoblasts and it is resorbed by osteoclasts, multinucleate cells that excavate pits on bone surfaces. It has been known since the early 20th century that systemic acidosis causes depletion of the skeleton, an effect assumed to result from physico-chemical dissolution of bone mineral. However, our own work has shown that resorption pit formation by cultured osteoclasts was absolutely dependent on extracellular acidification; these cells are inactive at pH levels above about 7.3 and show maximum stimulation at a pH of about 6.9.”
The acetic acid in vinegar kills microbes and inhibits food spoilage.
That’s why well over 99% of LIVING food is acidic (including the sap of plants).
After food is dead as a door-nail, it leaves behind an alkaline ash (residues remaining after LIFE is burnt to a crisp).
You’ll never find Qi in either minerals or magnetism.
Minerals are analogous to a clam’s shell — they give LIFE its prostheses to ambulate.
