Alkaline pH and Food digesting too slow

An alkaline pH (both number are 7.0 or above) means that the body is stagnant. It is not digesting foods and eliminating toxins. This causes the body to start to decay from the inside out. When saliva pH is alkaline, the body is compensating for an over-acid condition and weak kidneys that can’t drive out the acids.

Use this program only if both numbers are alkaline.

6.4 is perfect pH

Symptoms: Mineral utilization problems. Toxic bowel, gall bladder, liver problems, skin problems, parasites, body odor, bad breath, allergies, chronic infections and weakened conditions.   High alkaline pH is considered more dangerous than acid pH and takes longer to correct.

Start w/ first item and add as necessary.

  • Liquid Calcium  contains Calcium Lactate, Gluconate, also Herbal CA (prevents bone-loss).
  • Enzymes needed  Proactazyme Plus or PDA w/ each meal and Protease Plus in between meals.
  • High levels of Vitamin C. This alone can bring numbers down.
  • Flax oil  1 Cap. 3 x daily or 2 Tbsp.
  • Colloidal Minerals and Ultimate Green Zone; very important for balancing.

Apple cider vinegar  1 tbsp. 3 x daily w/ honey to improve digestion.

No nuts, no nut butters, black pepper, or cheese (digestion is slow).

Support and cleanse the liver (Liver Cleanser) and kidneys (Urinary Maintenance/Kidney Drainage) especially important for alkaline pH.

Eat a higher percentage of acid forming foods especially grains, beans, proteins.

Eat lots of Acidophilus and yogurt.

The saliva indicates the digestive organs and what you put in the body. The urine tells us what we take out of the body, the function of the kidneys and liver and the health of the blood.

After you become acid again, you will stay this way for a while to allow the body to rid itself of these acids. After that, you need to work on coming back into balance.

Blood Type Diet

These programs work best if you learn to eat according to your blood type. If you do not know your blood type, you can contact us for a typing kit. The cost is $14.95.

 

I balanced my pH and started to eat for my blood type. In three months time I have lost 60 lbs. and my allergies have disappeared. I never felt so great.

ADD / ADHD

by Dr. Inge Wetzel

“Would you give your child cocaine? Certainly not you say? Did you know that Ritalin is almost identical to cocaine? In medical research they are used interchangeably. Since the 1980’s we have known that the short term effects of Ritalin “seem” to work in 70-80% of the children. However, we also know that long term effects of these drugs are not good.   Also, did you know that it will become public record once your child has taken Ritalin or a similar drug for ADD and ADHD. This can prevent them from being hired on a job later in life. It is already a fact that anyone who has been on these drugs cannot enter into the U.S. military. What about the privacy act, you say? Well, what about it?
Prevention is the key! As always we need to look at underlying causes. According to Dr. Block, a medical director in Texas, 90% of individuals with this condition have yeast overgrowth, 50% have a bacterial invasion of the wrong kind, and 25% have parasites.
She states, “if you don’t look, you don’t see”. It was not until she started doing stool samples that she came to this conclusion. To rid the body of parasites is crucially important for proper absorption. She also found some other consistencies like deficiencies in B-vitamins, Magnesium and Calcium. Her response: The body has the inherent ability to heal itself. So if we give the body what it needs to function properly, and we get rid of what’s interfering, then the body will heal itself.”  quoted from research done by Allergy Research Group, Hayward, CA.
What do we look for? Some kids have low blood sugar or allergies. We try and eliminate sugars, carbohydrates, dairy, and food coloring (red dye #5 in Ketchup, colored soda’s etc.) and increase proteins, fresh vegetables and fruits.
Studies have shown that organic foods contain more nutrients, so we try and encourage diet modification whenever possible. With that we use Super Supplemental, Nutricalm and Vitamin C (taken separately). B-vitamins (Nutricalm) which nurtures the brain and nervous system, and a  new product called, “GABA plus” that is now available  for utmost brain function. It contains a combination of GABA (which reduces the number of neurons firing in the brain, thus calming brain activity), Glutamine (serves as fuel for the brain and calms the central nervous system), Passion Flower (contains phytonutrients that appear to exhibit a sedative effect on the nervous system), Taurine (has a protective effect on the brain, aids in the development of nerve tissue and helps stabilize cellular membranes), Spirulina (rich in a variety of nutrients, including protein, antioxidant caretenoids, trace minerals and vitamin B12. It builds the blood, increases brain function, boosts immunity and supports healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels).

The next high quality aid is called “Focus Attention”. This product contains Melissa Officinalis, which has been approved by the German Commission E for its ability to soothe the nervous system, along with Gingko Biloba, well known for its support of brain function and circulation. Another ingredient is DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) which is a biodynamic nutrient used for memory and learning enhancement. It also quenches damaging free radicals. Next is Slippery Elm which aids nutrient absorption and is used as a soothing and cleansing herb for the digestive system.   This wonderful combination also contains Grape seed extract, high in proanthocyanidins- highly active compounds that can readily neutralize brain damaging free radicals caused by toxins or over-stimulated brain metabolism  The homeopathic “Distress Remedy” is also used by many at specific times of increased mental/emotional stress.
In one case there was a little boy, five years old, who had been locked up in a psychiatric hospital. He was taken off all dairy products and put on rice milk products instead. His behavior changed dramatically.
How soon should we see changes? If we use strictly a nutritional approach the results will vary. Some children may be extremely deficient and it may take them months to catch up. Others may just be slightly deficient and may catch up quickly.
Children with the most yeast in their bodies will take longer. In severe cases the gut-wall has been penetrated causing the candida to enter into the bloodstream. Depending on the severity, it can take from three months to a year to eliminate this. During this time absorption will start to improve. Learn more about ADHD from a site devoted to this disorder.

Acid pH

The stomach empties quite rapidly and food is not properly digested.

An acid pH may produce:

Mineral utilization problems, cancer, diabetes, neurological diseases, liver and kidney diseases, immune deficiencies, premature aging, accelerates free-radical damage, obesity, cardiovascular disease, inhibits oxygen getting to the tissues, which is the cause of all disease.

Suggestions:

  • Alkalizing foods – See chart
  • Enzymes – Food Enzymes w/ meals, Protease Plus between meals on empty stomach.
  • Coral Calcium the most buffering calcium on the market.
  • Colloidal Minerals or chlorophyll.
  • Herbal Potassium, contains organic sodium & Potassium (buffers acid).
  • Vitamin A & D (instead of Cod Liver oil) 1 capsule = 400I.U. (cod liver oil: 3 capsules = 390 I.U.). A & D holds calcium in the body, which is needed to buffer acid.
  • No Vitamin C except Rosehips or Bioflavenoids.
  • Lemon/Maple Syrup drink 2 tsp. lemon, 2tsp. maple syrup to 8 oz. Water. Drink 4 – 8 glasses daily.
  • Alkalizing juice: mix carrot, celery, and beet 2 oz. each.
  • Herbs: Green Zone, Green Tea, Ginger, Yucca, Parsley.
  • Aromatherapy: Lemon 2 drops w/ 8 oz. water twice daily.
  • Alkaline Bath soak: – 1 C. Epsom salt, 2 tbsp. Ginger, 1 box baking soda – soak 20 minutes, then rinse.
  • Stomach Comfort: 2 Twice daily between meals. Use if other products fail to change pH.

The saliva comes from the lymph and indicates what you put into your body. The urine tells us what we take out of the body, the function of the kidneys and liver and the health of the blood.

Start with the first item and check pH levels. If improvements are not made, add next item and thus continue.  Combine this program with the “Eat Right for your Type” diet.

A Healthy Stomach

A Healthy Stomach


The hiatal hernia results from the upward displacement of the stomach and the resultant kinking of the esophagus. This often results in heartburn, acid reflux or the newly coined GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease). 50% of the American population over 50 have this condition in varying degrees. Accompanying symptoms include belching, hiccups, nausea, bloating, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing capsules – or foods, chest pains, irregular or rapid heart beat, asthma – all made worse or precipitated by bending over or lying down. So one must ask: why does the stomach decide to climb through the diaphragm and move toward the throat?

The major culprit is stress. The stomach is like a balloon that is being squeezed,  pushing it up into, and sometimes through the diaphragm (which is a muscle that divides the digestion organs from the heart and lungs). This in turn causes the esophageal tube to bend or kink and put pressure on organs above the diaphragm like the heart and lungs. If the lack of nutrients in the body allows for weak connective and muscular tissue, the diaphragm opening will weaken permitting more of the stomach through the opening. The diaphragm will create a pinching force on the muscles of the stomach causing a lower blood flow and consequent cramping of the upper stomach muscle – just like any muscle cramp in your leg or arm, etc. This produces pain and all the symptoms listed above.

The following mechanical fix will bring great relief. First it may be advisable to take herbs and do the ileocecal valve massage for about a week prior to pulling down the stomach. Also it will be more effective if there is no problem with constipation – which obviously will continually act to inhibit the exit of gas producing material. If constipation is a problem, take a Tiao He Cleanse so you can get that resolved before beginning.

This technique should be done on an empty stomach – first thing in the morning is best but doing this before each meal will bring quicker results. After massaging the ileocecal valve, apply some Lobelia Essence and Lavender oil the area below the sternum or breastbone  to help and relax it. Palpate the area to find the hardened tender areas and gently try to relax them using a gentle circular massage. Now take a deep breath and exhale slowly. While exhaling and relaxing the abdomen apply a firm inward and downward (toward the feet) pressure with overlapped thumbs from the base of the sternum down toward the navel. You should move about 2 inches down as you exhale. Without relaxing the pressure exerted by the thumbs, take another deep breath and while exhaling draw down on the stomach moving down another 2 inches or so. Without relaxing the pressure take your fingers and apply pressure to the ileocecal valve area. Hold for thirty seconds. This whole process should be repeated 3 times. The whole technique should be repeated daily for at least one month and doing it before each meal will bring quicker relief. You’ll begin to notice a difference not only in the amount of tenderness in the abdomen area but in the over all quality of your life and health. Those who experience a stiff neck will find their neck has greater freedom of movement without pain. Often it is easier to get someone to do this massage for you. They will be using the pads of their fingers to do the pulling – they also may need to cut and file their fingernails. If you are uncertain that either you or your helper is doing the technique correctly, you can just do the massage. I’ll be happy to show you how to do the technique at our next appointment – just let me know ahead of time so we don’t use up our time on other topics.

To close the ileocecal valve, apply some Lavender oil from the right hip inward. Then while applying pressure, slide your thumbs down from the center of the hip bone toward the navel, while applying pressure. It is easier to get someone else to do this, as it requires a good amount of pressure. It may be quite sensitive, but this is a necessary procedure.
