Acid & Alkaline - Internal pH Management
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
First, it's important to understand that the human body knows how to be healthy. It was created and
programmed, in most cases, with a vibrant health mandate. Health problems occur when we practice
chronically unhealthy habits. How long would a car run well if you never changed the oil or used
the wrong fuel? The answer is it wouldn’t run well long, if at all. The human body is a
much more dynamic and complex machine than a car but it to will fail if it's chronically abused as is
currently the case
with most people (over 90%). This is what happens when we behave chronically
unhealthy, live in toxic polluted environments,
consume unhealthy foods and subject ourselves to constant emotional stress. While it
is more difficult
to change our environment, we can control, to a large extent, how we behave and what we regularly consume.
The consumption of natural, organic, raw, fresh, live fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains are not only
the most nutritious diet but serves to keep the negative byproducts (acid forming chemistry) of respiration,
digestion and emotional turmoil (the natural life byproducts of internal biochemistry), in balance to maintain
optimal health. Let me say that again, consuming natural, live, fresh food is the way to not only effectively
manage internal biochemistry but to gain and maintain optimal health.
Most people currently consume the standard American diet (SAD), which consists of excessive sugar, protein,
saturated fat, calories and highly processed foods. These people have an average internal biochemical pH between
5.5-6.5 which is a very unhealthy pH range. This chronic very acid pH state will
lead to many of the illnesses and diseases common in American society today. Internal
acidosis (low pH) creates an internal biochemical environment ideal for
biological degradation (rapid aging), pathogenic
proliferation, illness and disease. Human blood struggles constantly to maintain a
range close to 7.365 which represents the body’s perfect pH - slightly alkaline. If all body fluids remained
close to this pH, the body would remain optimally healthy. The problem is most all the body’s
natural biochemical reactions create excess acid and lower internal pH. In short, the body
is constantly buffering the effects of internal biochemistry acids back to the
slightly alkaline healthy range of 7.365 and optimal health.
If we learn how to consume the right alkaline forming foods we assist the body onto maintaining an
pH range. When the body maintains the proper pH range the body’s natural rejuvenating and reparative
properties are robust which boosts the body’s natural defenses (immune system).
The trick is to monitor your pH frequently to know when internal acid is forming. Excess internal
acids usually form after consumption (digestion), and emotional
turmoil. Consuming live, alkaline forming foods will help raise internal pH into the optimum rang.
It is important to understand the simple task of proper internal biochemical management is the most
effective way to attain and maintain optimal human health.
The solutions to the chronic acidosis problem are;
1. Monitor your pH to know when it turns acid
2. Consume alkaline forming foods and agents to raise and maintain pH in an optimum
Vegetables (natural, raw, fresh, organic is best)
• Cucumber, cauliflower, celery, garlic, onions, broccoli, carrots
• Blue-green algae's - spirulina, chlorella
• Green vegetables - sprouts, kale, spinach, lettuce
• Green grasses - alfalfa, wheat
• Lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange, peach
• Melons, berries, banana, apple, apricot
• Pear, grape, avocado, pineapple, raisin
• Strawberry, cherry, coconut, date, fig
• Tropical fruit, rhubarb, tomato
Do you recognize any of these foods in your consumptive habits?
Corn, lentils, olives, winter squash
Blueberries, processed, canned or glazed fruits, cranberries
Bread, corn, macaroni, noodles, oatmeal, spaghetti, wheat, all rice
Butter, cheese, ice cream, milk & yogurt
Cashews, legumes, peanuts & butter, pecans, walnuts
Fats & Oils
Butter, canola, corn, flax, hemp seed, lard, safflower, sesame, sunflower
Beef (red meat), shellfish, fish, sausage, turkey, pork, lamb
Carob, high fructose corn syrup, sugar
Catsup, cocoa, coffee, mustard, pepper, soft drinks, vinegar
Any spirits, beer, hard liquor, wine
Drugs & Chemicals
Aspirin, chemicals, drugs, medicinal prescription drugs, psychedelic herbicides, pesticides, tobacco
Junk Food pH
Beer: pH 2.5, Coca-cola: pH 2, Coffee: pH 4
Other powerful alkalizing agents (supplements -
Caution, very powerful alkalizers - use only with competent
• Sodium Bicarbonate (great fast acting stomach anti-acid - negatively effects digestive chemistry &
sodium/potassium - use only 1 hr before & after eating)
• Potassium Citrate (doesn't negatively effect digestion or
sodium/potassium - best choice)
It is important to understand that proper internal
biochemical pH management is the most effective way to attain and maintain optimum human health.
Start pH testing and modulating immediately if not sooner, your health and longevity depend on it. This is best done through
living in a low to no pollution environment,
developing chronic healthy behavior habits, including healthy consumption,
exercise and emotional stability.

"Illness and disease are
optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen
It’s important to understand that optimal health can only
be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements
are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).
The following are the cornerstones of success with anything
in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you
will achieve excellence in anything you do.
character requires personal
commitment advances positive
tenacity promotes success

OPTIMAL HEALTH ACTION STEPS
1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence
Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity,
denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary
wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death.
DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR
HEALTH, WHO WILL?
The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of
either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely
true when it comes to health.
Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment)
are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments.
Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles
solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge
commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define
the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to
accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)
