HEALTH; It all begins with p”H” – How You Rot & Rust

                                   Health Begins with  p”H”   
  THE pH REGULATORY SYSTEM OF THE BODY  The pH balance of the human bloodstream is recognized by all medical physiology texts as one of the most important biochemical balances in all of human body chemistry, and even of all biological life in the universe. pH is the ‘field’ in which bio-life plays.

 pH is the acronym for “Potential Hydrogen”. In definition, it is the degree of concentration of hydrogen ions in a substance or solution. It is measured on a logarithmic scale from 0 to 14. Higher numbers means a substance is more alkaline in nature and there is a greater potential for absorbing more hydrogen ions. Lower numbers indicate more acidity with less potential for absorbing hydrogen ions.

Our body pH is very important because pH controls the speed of our body’s biochemical reactions. It does this by controlling the speed of enzyme activity as well as the speed that electricity moves through our body. 

The higher (more alkaline) the pH of a substance or solution, the more electrical resistance that substance or solution holds. Therefore, electricity travels slower with higher pH. 

All biochemical reactions and electrical (life) energy are under pH control. 

If we say something has an acid pH, we are saying it is hot and fast.  As an example, look at the battery of your car. It’s an acid battery. On cold days you want it to be hot and ready, and you want your car to start fast. 

Alkaline pH on the other hand, biochemically speaking, is slow and cool. Compare it to an alkaline battery in a flashlight. You want that battery to be cool, and to burn out slowly. 

Here is an example of how pH can control. Look around you at society in general. Do you see people getting exhausted, burned out, and quick to anger? Do you see a rise in violence? In part it could be due to the fact that people today lean to an acid pH. As a society we are running hot and fast. How did we get there? We guzzle coffee for breakfast (acid), burgers for lunch (acid), wash it down with king size colas (acid), and have a pizza (acid) for dinner. In fact, with this scenario, you could easily correlate the rise of violence in our society with the increasing number of fast food restaurants on every corner. But I digress. However, this does lead me to the second part of the pH and digestive metabolic equation. pH is under the direct control of what we put into our mouths. Kind of makes sense doesn’t it? 

  What we eat and drink will impact where our body’s pH level falls, and our body’s pH will control the activity of every metabolic function happening in our body.pH is behind the body’s electrical system and intracellular activity as well as the way our bodies utilize enzymes, minerals, and vitamins. That is why pH is one of the first things to be looked at if you are experiencing unbalance in your body in any way, shape, or form. And since our body’s pH level is a direct result of what we eat and drink, anytime we are experiencing imbalance, we need to look at what we have historically been eating and drinking because this impacts our pH. It’s a circle. You can’t look at one without looking at the other.What we eat and drink is directly tied to the functioning of our digestive system. From our mouth through our small intestines and through our colon, that system plays the most important part in our physical well being. This system, what we feed it, and how it impacts our pH, is the essential core that determines whether we have perfect health or not. It is really so simple.Now you may be thinking that all of this makes perfect sense. It is so simple that you would think that modern medicine could look at it, put two and two together and simply attempt to bring people back into balance through the food that they eat.Hippocrates said, “Let food be your medicine. Let medicine be your food.”If it were only so simple. Modern medicine has gotten to where it is today in part through a scientific and philosophical debate that culminated in the 19th century. On one side of the debate was French microbiologist Antoine Bechamp. On the other side was French microbiologist Louis Pasteur. Bechamp and Pasteur strongly disagreed in their bacteriological theories. They argued heatedly about who was correct. It was…

The Argument that Changed the Course of Medicine.

Pasteur promoted a theory of disease that described non-changeable microbes as the primary cause of disease. This is the theory of monomorphism. This theory says that a microorganism is static and unchangeable. It is what it is. Disease is solely caused by microbes or bacteria that invade the body from the outside. (This is the germ theory.) 

Bechamp held the view that microorganisms can go through different stages of development and they can evolve into various growth forms within their life cycle. This is the theory of pleomorphism. He observed microbe like particles in the blood which he called microzymas. These microbes would change shape as individuals became diseased, and for Bechamp, this was the cause of disease; hence disease comes from inside the body. 

Another scientist of the day, Claude Bernard, entered into the argument and said that it was actually the “milieu” or the environment that is all important to the disease process. Microbes do change and evolve, but how they do so is a result of the environment (or terrain) to which they are exposed. Hence, for Bechamp, microbes, being pleomorphic, will change according to the environment to which they are exposed. Therefore, disease in the body, as a biological process, will develop and manifest dependent upon the state of the internal biological terrain. At the core of that terrain, is pH. 

Both men acknowledged certain aspects of each other’s research, but it Pasteur was the stronger, more flamboyant, and more vocal opponent when compared to the quiet Bechamp. Pasteur also came from wealth and had the right family connections. He went to great lengths to disprove Bechamp’s view. Pasteur eventually managed to convince the scientific community that his view alone was correct. Bechamp felt that this diverted science down a deplorable road – a road that held only half the truth. 

On his deathbed, Pasteur finally acknowledged Bechamp’s work and said, “Bernard was correct: the microbe is nothing: the terrain is everything.” It was a 180 degree turnaround. With his death imminently at hand, he as much as admitted that his germ theory had flaws. But his admission fell on deaf ears. It was far too late. It could not reverse the inertia of ideas that had already been accepted by mainstream science at that time. Allopathic (drug based) medicine was firmly entrenched on the road that was paved by Pasteur. 

The result of that road is what you see today practiced as medicine. When a body is out of balance, doctors attempt to put it back into balance, first through drugs, then through surgery. The general effect is to remove the symptoms, not to deal with the ultimate cause of the ailment. 


The Worst Thing That Ever Happened: 

   Fortunately there have been and are today scientists who have continued along the other road  –  the road ignored by Pasteur. They have continued the pleomorphic line of research and think much more about the terrain, which is largely ignored in the United States.For example, the American medical establishment rarely looks at live blood. Their practice of staining blood with chemicals kills it. It also kills the ability to really “see” what is going on. But in looking at live blood, you can clearly “see” that there are forms that look like bacteria, microorganisms and parasites that not only are in the blood, but that over time can grow and can change their shapes. Some researchers suggest they these forms are markers for pathogenic (disease producing) states. (This ability of microorganisms to change is the concept of pleomorphism we’ve been discussing.) Understanding this concept is essential to the understanding of cancer and its cure, and the cure of many other diseases.

   Looking at live blood under a microscope is an incredible learning tool and begins an incredible journey whereby we come to understand that there are dynamic life processes going on every second in our bodies. It is an environment that is an ever changing canvas of life that holds forms that develop and grow and illustrates what some call “the fungus among us.”


Today, researchers who want to observe living blood use standard laboratory microscopes with high magnification that are specially set up to view the blood under “darkfield” or “phase contrast” conditions. With darkfield this means that the blood sample being viewed is actually in front of a dark background and light is being angled onto the blood sample from the sides. Under phase contrast conditions, the light coming through the specimen is shifted slightly out of phase with itself. These techniques allow nearly invisible microorganisms within the blood to be “lit up” and seen. It also clearly delineates the blood cells. This method is in contrast to the standard microscope “brightfield” conditions where light shines directly through the viewed sample. 


Using this kind of microscope technology, German bacteriologist Guenther Enderlein (a student of Bechamp) observed tiny microorganism like elements which he called protits. He stated that these tiny elements flourished in the blood cells, in the plasma body fluids, and in the tissues, living in harmony with the body in a symbiotic or mutually beneficial relationship. He considered the protit as one of the body’s smallest, organized, biological units. The most interesting thing about this microorganism is its ability to change and adapt to its environment. It was observed that when there was severe change or deterioration in the body’s internal environment (mostly noted by changes in pH), these elements would pass through several different stages of cyclic development, advancing from harmless agents to disease producing (pathological) bacteria or fungi. His book ‘The Life Cycle of Bacteria’ (Bakterian Cyclogenie) presented his theory. From his research he was able to produce natural biological answers to many of the degenerative disease processes plaguing western civilization today. 


Other researchers have continued along a similar path of Enderlein and have promoted their own ideas of these “things in the blood”. Gaston Naessens observed the elemental particle which Enderlein called the protit and he described that it had a life cycle. He called Enderlein’s protit a “somatid”. Naessens believes this protit/somatid predates DNA and carries on genetic activity. It is the first thing that condenses from light energy, and is the link between light and matter. 

Virginia Livingston-Wheeler also researched these elements and called one supposedly developmental form of it “progenitor cryptocides.” Progenitor meaning it existed through millennia, and cryptocides being a cellular killer – essentially the ancestral hidden killer – cancer. Like Naessens, Livingston also did cancer research. Some of her research was done along with two other women, Eleanor Alexander-Jackson and Irene Diller. They referred to this “microbe” as the cancer microbe. 

Here we have similar ideas from different sources, all doing private research and not publishing in known journals. It is unfortunate that many scientists work in isolation and for one reason or another a lot of information known by one is unknown by the others. Because information is not shared, or given hierarchical credit, many who follow are left in the dark and without the full picture. 


Remember that blood is under pH control. Ideally it has a pH in a narrow range around 7.3, which is slightly alkaline. In Enderlein’s theory, a pH around 7.3 is the perfect environment in which the element he called the protit lives in harmony with the body. But when blood pH is disturbed and is shifted out of that narrow range, these tiny elements (which he though of as living microorganisms) can no longer survive. In order to survive, he suggested that they would change to a form which can survive. It is these new forms that he stated can become aggressive, parasitic and pathogenic agents within the blood. 

Dr. Enderlein contended there are thousands of forms and many of these are able to overcome the body’s defense mechanisms, causing multiple disease situations.

Some Call it the Kleptic Microbe

Darkfield microscopic studies conducted by Dr. Rudolph Alsleben and Dr. Kurt Donsbach of the Hospital Santa Monica clearly illustrated the proliferation of many diverse elemental forms in the blood of their sick patients. What they observed was the dance of these microbial looking forms in an expansive state and increasing with the pathology of their patients. They called it the ‘kleptic microbe’. Examining their patients live blood revealed many of these microbial looking forms darting to and fro in the blood plasma. The more ill the patient, the more forms observed. The sickest patients had swarming hordes of these forms within the blood, said to be causing great stress to their immune systems. The doctors learned that cleaning the blood of these forms allowed the rejuvenation of the immune system to progress in an orderly and rapid fashion.


Curious scientists who spend a lot of time in the laboratory looking at live blood under the microscope often start to wonder about the pleomorphic concept. When they see the changes in the blood taking place and correlate it with the progression of the disease process, many begin to see a pattern unfolding. This has prompted some to state that… 

The over-acidification of the body, caused by an inverted way of eating and living, causes a proliferation of the “fungus among us” which debilitates the body and, if not corrected, will ultimately cause our demise.


Looked at in this light it could be said that all illness is but this one constitutional disease, the result is mycotoxicoses – toxicity caused by mycotic infection, or in other words, by a yeast and fungus infection. These are the great decomposers of living and dead bodies. From ashes to ashes and dust to dust, this is nature’s decomposing mechanism at work.


Fascinating isn’t it? If you begin to understand this concept, you will begin to understand a prime reason why we get sick and how we get sick, and you will realize that much of modern medicine is looking under the wrong stones for answers to many disease questions. They need to be looking at the environmental factors in and around the body itself. 

For years now, medicine has considered blood to be a sterile environment. But they’re wrong. Unfortunately, dead wrong for some of their patients. 

Blood is not a sterile environment, nor is it a static environment. That environment can change (most notably through diet) and microbial appearing forms in the blood can evolve and change too. The fact is, we can see this type of evolution and change going on throughout all of nature. If you leave a bowl of milk out on the kitchen table for a few days without refrigeration, it will turn sour fairly quickly. Did it turn sour because there was an outside germ that got into the milk? Probably not. It turned sour because tiny microbes already in the milk changed their form to adapt to a changed environment.



One school of thought (modern medicine) says most disease is caused by germs or some form of static, disease-causing microbe (the germ theory). In order to get well, you should KILL the germs. KILL the microbes. KILL whatever is making you sick. Drugs, antibiotics, chemotherapy, radiation, surgery.


The other school of thought (which encompasses most other forms of the healing arts unrelated to mainstream medicine and quite often is battling government) says most disease is caused by some unbalance in the body. The unbalance occurs in some nutritional, electrical, structural, toxicological or biological equation. In order to get well, you need to re-establish balance in your body by working with

your body, not against it.


For the pleomorphic scientists like Enderlein, Naessens, Livingston, and others, disease is in large measure a function of biology. It is a biologically driven event that takes place in the body when metabolic processes are thrown off. These metabolic processes are thrown off largely by dietary, nutritional and environmental factors. 

Embracing the biological view gives new insights into the disease process and is truly another paradigm for 



According to many health researchers, total healing of chronic illness takes place only when and if the blood is restored to a normal, slightly alkaline pH. In case you missed it, let me say it again…

Total healing of chronic illness takes place only when and if the blood is restored to a normal,
slightly alkaline pH.

The magnitude of meaning behind this research is of incredible importance to someone who is fighting a disease, overcoming an illness, or just desiring to feel better. What it means is this… 

Your Body pH Affects EVERYTHING.

When pH goes off, OXYGEN delivery to cells suffers.

_______________________________________________ WORD ABOUT OXYGEN 

More and more research is showing that low oxygen delivery to cells is a major factor in most if not all degenerative conditions.

Nobel laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg of Germany, won his Nobel Prize for his discovery of oxygen deficiency in the CANCER growth process. As stated above, when pH is off and our bodies are running more acidic, our cells are getting less oxygen. Cancer thrives under an acid tissue pH/oxygen deficient environment. Is it any wonder today that cancer rates are up?

To recall how important oxygen is to your life, just stop breathing for a minute. Get the idea? Each cell in your body can breathe fully or not. Which it is depends upon having an optimum pH balance. Do you think keeping an eye on your body pH might be important in your life? 


pH Controls the Things You Can’t Live Without…

Like your BRAIN. Your brain needs fuel to run, and the fuel


it uses is glucose. But unlike other cells, your brain can’t store glucose. It depends on the second to second supply from the bloodstream – a bloodstream that is affected by pH, which controls the efficiency of INSULIN, which allows sugar to enter into cells which in turn controls blood sugar levels.

Your HEART. William Philpott M.D. in his ‘Biomagnetic Handbook’ made an important body pH/electrical connection.

As the pH of the blood goes more acid, fatty acids which are normally electro-magnetically charged on the negative side switch to positive and automatically are attracted to and begin to stick to the walls of arteries which are electro-magnetically charged on the negative side. (And as science states, opposites attract.) It should start to make sense that a society which over-emphasizes food that could push blood to be more acid will have a high rate of heart disease. And so it goes.

pH control impacts every biochemical process in the body including…

ENZYMES which are part of that biochemical process. There are hundreds if not thousands of enzyme processes which take place in the body. Many are so specific that they are like complex square pegs that need to “fit” into specific square holes in order to carry out their duty. If blood pH is off balance even a little, some important pegs are not “fitting” their respective slots. Enzyme function and thus life itself begins to suffer.

MINERAL ASSIMILATION is affected by pH. Minerals have different pH levels at which they can be assimilated into the body. Minerals on the lower end of the atomic scale can be assimilated in a wider pH range, and minerals higher up on the scale require a narrower and narrower pH range in order to be assimilated by the body. For example….

Sodium and magnesium have wide pH assimilation ranges.
It narrows somewhat for calcium and potassium.
Narrows more for manganese and iron.
More for zinc and copper.
More for iodine.

Iodine, which is high up on the atomic scale, requires near perfect pH for its assimilation into the body.

Iodine you may know, is one of the most important minerals for proper functioning of the THYROID. But, the thyroid doesn’t get access to iodine unless the body pH is near perfect.

With a society in a largely pH unbalanced state, one would suspect a lot of thyroid problems. Malfunctioning thyroids have been connected to arthritis, heart attacks, diabetes, cancer, depression, overweight, fatigue and more. Are you starting to see the basic metabolic picture evolving here?

Due primarily to agricultural soil depletion and over-acidic food consumption, mineral deficiency is a large problem facing most people today. And mineral deficiency relates to the quantity of life energy or, more specifically, electricity, in our bodies.

Body mineral content and balances control
the quantity of electricity in our bodies.

The speed at which the electricity flows
is controlled by the body’s pH balance.

pH Balance and the Mineral Connection
There are complex biochemical processes taking place in the body constantly in an attempt to keep blood pH as near perfect as possible. These are known as the pH buffering systems. These buffering systems need a good balance of minerals to work effectively. If we are getting inadequate mineral intake from the food we eat, we are going to start having problems with our pH balancing systems.

And if our pH is unbalanced, what is the result? Well, by now you should start having a good idea. Pick your disease, choose your unbalance. Cancer, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue, allergies, obesity, just name it. If you don’t feel good, one of the basic things that stands between you and perfect health is your body’s pH. Your basic metabolic body balance.

While We’re on the Subject of Minerals….
Did you know that…..

Minerals are as important as, if not more important than, vitamins. Minerals are co-enzymes which help vitamins function. In the absence of minerals, vitamins can’t do their job. Many minerals are referred to as trace minerals, which might make it seem as though they are of little importance, but nothing could be further from the truth. Minerals and their deficiencies have been implicated in a wide range of off-balance health conditions. Here are some examples:

Supplementing a diet with sufficient chromium and vanadium can help prevent diabetes and has been seen to reverse diabetes in those already diabetic, as vanadium is reportedly able to replace insulin in some cases.

Copper  deficiency is implicated in aneurysms (brain, aortic, etc.)

Magnesium is quite possibly the most important mineral for the reduction of coronary heart disease. (The latest “cutting edge” research shows that heart disease is really a function of heart muscle acidosis.)

Boron helps keep calcium in the bones, helps women preserve and make estrogen, and helps men keep testosterone. Boron affects alertness. Boron can help eliminate arthritis.

Potassium and magnesium (along with organic sodium) are some of the most important minerals for rebalancing the electrical properties of the cell, for eliminating excess acidity, and for helping to balance calcium.

Magnesium helps conduct electrical messages between all the neurons of the body.

People get irrational when potassium levels are low.

Zinc is involved in over 200 brain enzyme interactions.

Drinking zinc mixed with distilled water can stop anorexia nervosa in a day.

Zinc deficiency symptoms include loss of taste and smell.

Zinc deficiency in children results in moodiness, depression, irritability, photo phobia (light sensitivity), antagonism, temper tantrums & learning problems.

Children who do poorly on achievement tests tend to have low iron levels. These children also display disruptive, impulsive and irritable behavior in the classroom. Children who have high lead levels do more poorly overall. Most of these children’s mineral imbalances go undiagnosed and instead are medicated with drugs.

Likewise, ADD – Attention Deficit Disorder can often be eliminated by balancing nutritional trace minerals. There is no need to drug our children.

Cigarette smoke is rich in cadmium (the blue color in the smoke). Cadmium is the most neurotoxic substance known to human beings. A low zinc/high cadmium ratio is implicated in learning disabilities.

Zinc is needed to balance cadmium.

Too much copper is an irritant to the brain.

A story is told by Dr. Alex Schauss, a noted author, researcher, and nutritional mineral expert. It is about his experience with a 9 year old boy brought into his clinic some years ago. The boy had been charged with attempted murder. His criminal record began at age 6. He burned animals, shot at people’s houses and beat up mothers pushing baby strollers. The police all said he would be a lifetime criminal, a Charles Manson type of psychotic. He was on six psychiatric drugs, and was kicked out of school after he tried to kill a 10 year old girl. Dr. Schauss did a hair mineral analysis and discovered his copper levels were off the charts. He added supplemental zinc to the boy’s diet to chelate out the excess copper, and within two weeks the boys urinalysis showed all the excess copper had been eliminated. He went off all medication, returned to school and became a model student. Years later the boy returned to see Dr. Schauss. He was a junior in college, an A student, on the varsity basketball team, and had a heart of gold.

High manganese levels show statistically high correlation with violent behavior., while lithium balances and helps control manganese.  The cities of the world with the highest lithium concentration in their water show the lowest homicide rates.

The trace element rubidium cures manic depression.

The right ratio of copper to zinc in the cell acts as an antioxidant.

This information shows just a teeny fraction of how minerals and mineral imbalances can affect your health. Much of this information is buried in professional journals, there for the taking. It appears that due to politics and the influence and strength that the medical/drug industrial complex has over the suppression of information, these things stay buried.

If this type of information, along with the other things we know, could be assimilated into our society, whether through the efforts of individuals or that of our government, and if people like doctors, psychiatrists, and dietitians were to act on it, we could lessen violence in our society, close jails, raise academic achievement, and greatly reduce outlays of public money for Medicare and Medicaid. We could see our health insurance premiums drop to about $50 dollars a month for a family of four because we could eliminate our need for expensive hospital visits and treatments excepting emergency care for accidents.

Without a doubt, the single most important thing you can do for your health is to supplement your diet with broad spectrum trace minerals. They are that important.

Your Disease is in Perfect Harmony With Your Body
From what you’ve learned so far, you should begin to understand the truth of this statement. When your body’s mineral balances are off, your health is off. When your body’s pH and basic metabolic processes are off, it sets up the internal environment that becomes a new playground for the opportunistic “bugs” – bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.

Earlier we talked of the concept of colloids of life in your blood like the elemental forms called protits and somatids vis a vis Enderlein and Naessans. Whether actual life or not, one thing that is certain is how colloidal particles form and ultimately evolve is a function of pH – the terrain of the blood. What else is a constituent of the blood? How about the mineral balances we’ve been speaking about. Research has shown that microorganisms can evolve into different looking forms when exposed to and combined with elements like heavy metals. And so it is in the blood. For example, some researchers contend that patients with high levels of mercury in their mouths will often exhibit specific pleomorphic microbe looking elements in their blood.

Is it possible that something like high levels of copper, as referenced in the story above, are more than just an irritant to the brain? Might they set up the internal environment in the body whereby the colloids of life form into specific “bugs” that with some level of microbial consciousness are actually behind aggressive, violent or psychotic behavior? Something to think about perhaps, and in so saying, your blood may be much more than what you think it is.
