Acidifying Cellular Soil

Re: Is an alkaline diet best for your health?
Yes, No, Maybe.
An alkaline diet is best for your health if your body is over-acidic.
An acidic diet is best for your health if your body is over-alkaline.
An acidic diet promotes the growth of cancer.
An alkaline diet promotes the metastasis of cancer.
Obviously, balance (homeostasis) is ideal.
High-level wellness is Yin and Yang and the dynamic flow between them — the fulfillment of electrostatic (Yin) and quantum (Yang) forces.
Medical Nemesis is obsessed with blood pH.
Blood pH is not the same as SOIL pH. Blood is too well buffered.
The cell and its organelles are the soil, not the hydrating circulation within them and around them.
According to Dr. Google …
“Soil pH is important because it influences several soil factors affecting plant growth, such as (1) soil bacteria, (2) nutrient leaching, (3) nutrient availability, (4) toxic elements, and (5) soil structure.”
The same goes for the soil of the human body.
J. Hart, D. Horneck, R. Stevens, N. Bell, & C. Cogger (“Acidifying Soil for Blueberries and Ornamental Plants in the Yard and Garden West of the Cascade Mountain Range in Oregon and Washington,” Oregon State University, Apr. 2003) wrote …
“Plants differ in their preference for soil pH. For example, vegetable gardens produce well in a soil pH of 6.5, and lawns grow well in a pH of 6.0. ‘Acid-loving’ plants such as azaleas, blueberries, and rhododendrons require a soil pH below 6 and preferably below 5.5.”
According to the same source, here are some suggested soil pH ranges …
6.0 to 7.0 — annual landscape plants
4.5 to 5.5 — azalea
4.5 to 5.5 — blueberry and cranberry
4.5 to 6.0 — blue hydrangea
5.0 to 6.5 — camellia
5.2 to 6.0 — dogwood
6.0 to 7.0 — fruit trees
5.5 to 6.5 — grapes
6.0 to 7.0 — herbaceous ornamentals
5.5 to 8.0 — lawns
6.5 to 7.5 — muskmelons, garlic, and cauliflower
4.5 to 5.5 — rhododendron
5.0 to 6.5 — shade trees
6.0 to 7.0 — vegetable gardens
5.5 to 7.0 — woody shrubs and vines such as roses, forsythia, and clematis
Re: Is urine pH an accurate measurement of the body’s pH?
A farmer measures soil pH by direct soil testing or slurry testing.
No farmer in his right mind would measure the pH of his runoff water.
According to Dr. Google …
“Urine has the highest range of pH compared to other bodily fluids. The American Association for Clinical Chemistry says the normal urine pH range is between 4.5 and 8.”
Emanuel Revici (Research in Physiopathology As Basis of Guided Chemotherapy—With Special Application To Cancer, 1961) wrote …
“It was only in pathological pain that a dual character was encountered. For one thing, it was noted that in some patients with chronic pain — associated with tumors, arthritis or other conditions — the pain intensity was not constant. In many of these patients, variations in pain intensity could be seen to follow a pattern. Although the variations usually are referred to as ‘spontaneous,’ we could show that they were related to the time of day. Furthermore, the variations were not the same for all patients. In one group, pain was severe in the morning and diminished toward evening, while in another group, little or no pain was felt in the morning and exacerbations occurred in the evening.
“The intake of food also had a dual influence. In some patients with tumors far removed from the gastro-intestinal tract, pain was increased by eating while in others pain decreased. Patients themselves often recognized this relationship and many whose pain was increased with the intake of food refused to eat for fear of aggravating their suffering, while those of the other group wanted to eat whenever pain was severe in order to reduce its intensity.
“These observations on the influence of time of day and intake of food on pain led to the study of the acid-base balance of the body since this balance is known to be influenced by the same two factors — time of day and food intake.”
