Excess acidity grows tumors, and excess alkalinity grows ulcers.
An over-acidic person has a white coated tongue, cracked skin oozing yellow fluid and runny crystals, and a “wet” cough with an overflow of mucus.
An over-alkaline person has a red tongue which is often fissured, cracked skin with scale and no fluid, and a “dry” tickling cough with no mucus.
In the 1950s or before, Emanuel Revici, M,D., discovered that an over-acidic person is prone to experience pain or itching in the morning, while an over-alkaline person is prone to evening pain or itching.
He went on to show that over-acidic pain or itching were caused by lactic acid, while over-alkaline pain or itching were caused by sodium carbonates.
Dr. Revici also found low-serum potassium values associated with an acidic pain pattern (and the growth of cancer cells), and high-serum potassium values associated with alkaline pain (and the metastasis of cancer cells).
Due to the so-called “alkaline tide” of digestion, Dr. Revici also found a clear-cut correlation between alkalization and pain or itching experienced after meals.
Dwight L. McKee, M.D. (Emanuel Revici, M.D.: A Review of His Scientific Work, 1985) wrote .
“Revici has shown that the administration of acidifying or alkalizing substances, while changing the blood pH very little, manifestly change the titrimetric alkalinity, indicating the efficiency of the buffering system of the blood. Similarly, he has shown that the administration of acidifying or alkalizing agents, while changing only a little the normal tissue pH, does induce marked changes of the pH of lesions, thereby influencing pain through this mechanism. This concurs with Revici’s basic concept of the lesions as isoparasites with their own histones and genes. Biologically more primitive and behaving independently of the normal tissues, with a generally less efficient defense, they respond to acid base shifts in the body with a change in the lesion pH, whereas the normal tissues remain at a relatively constant pH.”

For those who doubt that modern schooling is a pathetic failure, well over 99% of the general population actually believes that coffee is acidic.
You buy them computers, and they eat the memory chips.

Hello Atom! So if the “alkaline tide” of digestion is noticeably contributing to chronic pain experienced in the stomach/gut after meals – regardless of whether they purely consist of fruit, vegetables or meat eaten separately from one another – and the person notices an even sharper pain when salt is added to any type of food, what foods or supplements could they use to correct this state of over-alkalinity?

It’s hard for food to make a person over-acidic or over-alkaline without there being an underlying dis-ease condition.
The “alkaline tide” usually only gets frequent snackers (“grazers”) into trouble.
Any bellyache lasting longer than 40 minutes after eating is not directly attributable to the alkaline tide.
Table salt is slightly anabolic/acidic, so foods high in magnesium and sulfur help neutralize the sodium and chloride.
It’s no “accident” that all four of these elements are on the Third Period of the Periodic Table of the Elements.

Thank you Atom! Hopefully you can have another information-packed show dedicated to discussing your knowledge of Dr. Revici’s work and the Periodic Table of Elements to kick off 2020!
