Alkalize or Die
Keeping Your Alkaline Reserve Filled
By Dr. Theodore Baroody
Dr. Theodore Baroody in
his book Alkalize or Die shows that our body has an alkaline reserve
that is used to neutralize the harmful effects acids. Understanding
this biological function is vital to understanding why drinking
purified alkaline water is important. We
encourage you to read each and everyone of the quotes from Alkalize
or Die on this site. It will give you a clear understanding of the
importance of alkalizing our body tissues can boost overall health and the
health of specific areas of our body. Eating alkaline forming foods
is a solution to the problem of excess tissue acids, but drinking
alkaline water produced by any of our quality Microwater water
ionizers is a more simple and effective way of flushing out
acid waste from our body. Combine your eating of organic alkaline
forming foods with the drinking of Microwater for the best health
In this excerpt Dr. Theodore
Baroody describes the alkaline reserve in our bodies and how it is
used to neutralize acid wastes.
Now onto the quote from Alkalize or Die
great alkaline reserve is the body's bank account. The body can call
upon it anytime to release alkaline elements for the
neutralization of acid.
"Biochemically, the alkaline reserve acts as a buffer to
maintain proper balance in the blood. The blood works in very narrow
parameters and sickness quickly results if these are imbalanced.
When we ingest more alkaline-forming minerals than are needed at one
time, the remainder is stored in the body tissues for future use ...

is digested, it is carried to the tissues where it is oxidized. The
carbonic acid salts of the alkaline elements react with the
circulating acid, bind up the acid and release weak carbonic acid.
This weak carbonic acid is readily eliminated through the lungs ac
carbon dioxide and water. The mineral elements, both
alkaline and acid, are then set free. If the alkaline and acid
elements are freed simultaneously,
the alkaline elements immediately
neutralize the acids. If not, the acids elements are neutralized by
the great alkaline reserve. Thus at all times there must be an
excess of alkali stored in the body as a reserve.
.....The alkaline reserve is
only a back-up system with limited quantity to keep you from
constantly poisoning yourself with too much acid-forming food.
is overindulgence in acid-forming food (especially fried processed
foods) the body sickens. In its marvelous wisdom, the body will make
every possible effort to rebalance this transgression by expelling
as quickly as possible, all the acid-forming residues. But
when this alkaline reserve
is depleted, death follows.
Alkalize or Die is a valuable
resource to have in your home. It lists most complete list of
foods with their corresponding acid or alkaline forming potential.
We use it as a great reference source when following the 80/20
alkaline/acid diet. You can order you copy of this treasure from the
