THE CAUSE, PREVENTION AND REVERSAL of AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS OR ALS!
This is a scientific article on the most important aspects of acid/base chemistry in the prevention and cause of degenerative disease with a few notes on extra sources of hard core acids and their consequences in the cause, prevention and natural treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or in short ALS.
The first part of the dis-ease name in ALS, Amyotrophic comes from the Greek language: A- means “no”, myo refers to “muscle”, and trophic means “nourishment”; amyotrophic therefore means “no muscle nourishment,” which describes the characteristic atrophication or muscle tissue acidification of the sufferer’s muscle tissue which is being broken down from dietary and metabolic acids which have not been properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination - bowels, urinary system, lungs, pores of the skin and for women through menstruation.
The blood will deposit dietary, metabolic, environmental and respiratory acids into the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium and then into the colloidal connective tissues, which includes the muscles and fatty tissues to maintain the blood’s delicate pH balance at 7.365.
the Interstitial Fluid Compartments which Hold Dietary, Respiratory, Metabolic and Environment Acidic Waste To Be Removed via the Lymphatic System or Stored in the Colloidal Connective and/or Fatty Tissues
Lateral identifies the areas in a person’s spinal cord where portions of the nerve cells that are affected by acidic waste products that are deposited into the tissues from the interstitial fluids - the genesis for ALS.
As this area degenerates form acidic waste products of diet and metabolism it leads to scarring or hardening (“sclerosis“) in the region of deposit. The body is designed to solidify ALL liquid poison acids that are NOT properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination to prevent blood and tissue degeneration. The problem with maintaining the alkaline design of the blood and interstitial fluids and then tissues is the accumulation of an acidic load every day from personal toxic lifestyle, including dietary choices.
FOR EVERY dietary and/or metabolic ACID MOLECULE EXCRETED BY THE KIDNEYS, THAT ACID MOLECULE MUST TAKE A BASE or ALKALINE MINERAL WITH IT TO KEEP IT NEUTRAL – to keep the acid waste part from burning up or destroying muscle cells, bone cells, brain cells, liver cells, kidney cells, etc. This is how the body is designed to maintain its alkalinity while dealing with its daily acidic functions, such as moving, breathing and thinking.
In other words, the human body is alkaline by design although acidic by function.
Stated simply, ALS is just another dis-ease of accumulated acidic dietary, metabolic, respiratory and/or environmental waste products deposited from the blood to the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium and then into the connective tissues for storage.
ALS has only one cause – ACID! And, one cure – restore the alkaline design to the blood, interstitial fluids and connective and fatty tissues.
For example, in diet every animal protein acid (uric, nitric, phosphoric, sulphuric acids) molecule ingested, a base mineral must leave, eventually, through the kidneys.

Since the base molecule is lost through defecation or urination and not reabsorbed back into blood circulation that equates to a double loss of base and why eating animal protein is so dangerous to the health of the brain and body.
In a normal situation, the hydrochloric acid produced by the cover cells of the stomach is matched by the production of an equivalent amount of sodium bicarbonate (each molecule of sodium bicarbonate the stomach cells produce is matched by the counter production of just one, hydrochloric acid molecule).
This sodium bicarbonate goes the other direction (except when ingesting food or liquids than the sodium bicarbonate molecule remains in the stomach to buffer the acids of the food or drink) into the blood stream and circulates all around, first flushing out the excess acid in the interstitial fluids and then the connective and fatty tissues and especially, freeing the collagen fibers and the colloidal connective tissue organ from the adsorbed acids stored there. The acids buffered by sodium bicarbonate secreted by the cover cells of the stomach come from metabolism, diet, respiration and the external environment.
Any sodium bicarbonate that is left over is picked up by the alkaline glands, the liver, the pancreas, the salivary glands, the pylorus glands, the duodenum, the intestinal glands, etc.
An acid/alkaline imbalance leading to inflammation and then degeneration, that may be the cause of ALS happens because the sodium bicarbonate generated by the stomach’s cover cells, does not all go to the alkaline glands (pancreas, liver, salivary glands and the alkaline glands in the duodenum). On the way through the body to those glands, most of it gets used up by neutralizing acid residues stored in the connective tissue organ, including the muscles and bones.
If there are not enough bases left over after the ingestion of an acidic meal or enough bases to neutralize and clear the acids stored in the connective tissues, a relative base deficiency develops, the latent tissue “acidosis”, and the salivary glands, pylorus glands, liver and pancreas do not end up with enough alkaline sodium bicarbonate juices to ensure proper alkalization of the food and drink ingested.
Alkalization of the food and drink ingested cannot proceed without enough of these alkaline sodium bicarbonate juices from the salivary glands, pylorus glands, duodenum glands, liver, pancreas, intestines, etc., so the stomach has to produce more acid, in order to make enough sodium bicarbonate base, leading to ad nauseum, of which one can develop stomach ulcers and eventual stomach cancer.
The ulcer or cancerous of sclerosis condition is not the result of too much acid, on the contrary, it is the result of too little alkaline sodium bicarbonate or base to neutralize the acidic poisonous waste products from dietary and lifestyle choices!
The ‘excess’ acid in the gastric pits of the stomach is there as a toxic byproduct of sodium bicarbonate production, as the organism has to generate it so more sodium bicarbonate can be made to satisfy the needs of the salivary glands, pylorus glands, duodeum glands, intestinal glands, liver and pancreas and prevent the compromise of the alkaline design of the blood and tissues.
THE NEW BIOLOGY (R)
If alkaline minerals are lost because they are excreted with the excess acids from animal protein and excess sugars consumed, it will be important to cut down on such consumption of animal protein and sugars and replace or supplement the alkaline mineral salts lost through urination, defecation. perspiration and respiration.
These lost base minerals salts can be replaced with alkaline green fruit, alkaline green vegetables, alkaline mineral salt supplementation, long-chain polyunsaturated oils, and good clean alkaline water at a pH of 9.5.
I strongly recommend infusing alkaline green fruit, vegetables, mineral salts and attend to your alkaline water everyday to prevent ALL sickness and disease, including ALS!

Alkaline minerals from plants, organic minerals and ionized minerals contained in fresh/clean ionized alkaline water are the very best ones the body can use. Sodium from a plant for example, is much different from the sodium from table salt. You can eat all the processed table salt you want and the cells themselves can still be sodium or base deficient. The sodium used for building cells has to be organic, from green plants or from a source such as the colloidal mineral salts from the North Shore of the Great Salt Lake. Salt is the main base mineral in our body for transporting electrons, for energy to the cells and building alkaline mineral compounds such as sodium bicarbonate or magnesium, potassium and calcium.
