Cellular biochemistry and biological activity represents the foundational
action of all life. Animal biochemical activity (metabolism) produces an acid residue which is
a natural byproduct. As each cell performs its many tasks to support life, an end
result is cellular metabolic waste (acid). In short, these acids are
natural byproducts of biological activity. An expellant example of biological
waste is the lactic acid produced by muscles during exercise. The body must go to great lengths to neutralize the toxic
properties of these acids before they act as poisons and successfully change the natural
chemical balance of the cellular environment.
While it is true, most clinical practitioners believe that the immune system is the body's
first line of defense, it could be more accurately described as a very sophisticated clean-up
service system. If we are seriously about achieving and maintaining optimal health,
we must look at the importance of internal biochemical pH balance as not only a
primary indicator of toxic accumulation but the first line
defense system against illness, and disease as well as a pathway to optimal
Proper internal biochemical pH balance fosters an environment of optimum biological performance,
optimal health and a hostile environment for spontaneous pathogenic proliferation. Fungus, yeast
and bacteria are microbial life forms which inhabit the water, soil, air, and are essentially
ubiquitous in nature and are present in nearly all things consumed as well as in
the body. Many of these microorganisms
are more highly developed than the intermediate states of bacteria or the early stages of viruses.
Over the years, they have mutated into over 500,000 different species. Many posses incredible
adaptive capabilities which could be accurately described as opportunists and/or
Most are constantly seeking out new ways to adapt, colonize and proliferate. When colonized,
they can begin to cause biological stress illness and disease.
Pathogens like fungus, bacteria, and virus tend to colonize in very select locations in the
body, depending on their particular nutritional requirements and colonization conditions. Fungal
infections are capable of causing severe fermentation through the toxic by-products of metabolism, which
makes them potentially extremely damaging to our health. They generally enter the extra cellular
fluid and/or the bloodstream which provides transportation throughout the body. This pathogenic
microbial proliferation contributes tremendously to the over-acidification of the blood and/or
tissues which poisons and destroys cells throughout the body. This condition is called acute
acidosis and is a direct result of unhealthy behavior and consumptive habits such as consuming
a standard American diet (SAD). The SAD consumptive habit is abundant in animal based protein
(especially red meat and pork), dairy products (milk, cheese, ice cream), sugar in any form
(sucrose, fructose, glucose). Because of these facts, it is said that, there is only one
sickness and one disease, (acidosis). There is however thousands of different so-called diseases
(symptoms) all of which are produced by a single disease acute acidosis/toxemia.
The primary source of nourishment for most pathogens is SUGAR. As these organisms feed off
the sugar and proteins of our bodies they excrete waste called toxins. These toxins negatively
affect us physically, emotionally, and in many other ways. The solution to this toxic build-up
problem is to cleanse the blood (detoxify) and nourish the cells. The proper way to do this is
by eliminating those foods which are acid forming, instead consuming foods that are alkaline
forming. Pathogenic microorganisms can only survive in an acid environment, not in an alkaline
environment. It is extremely important that we consume a proper ratio between acid an alkaline
forming foods. The ideal ratio in a normal body is 4 parts alkaline to 1 part acid which
will help the body maintain a healthier slightly alkaline pH range. It is believed that the
perfect internal biochemical pH is 7.365.
To avoid a timely chemistry lesson, I will summarize as follows. pH refers to the
relative concentration of Hydrogen (H+) ions in solution. Low pH values indicate
higher concentrations of Hydrogen ions or acids, and high pH values indicate low
concentrations of Hydrogen ions or alkaline. pH 7.0 is pH neutral. pH 4.0-7.0 is acidic
and pH 7.0-10.0 is alkaline.
An ideal optimal health diet should consist of at least 75% of a variety of dark green
leafy and other assorted raw, fresh, organic if possible vegetables, sprouted grains, nuts,
essential fatty acids and abundant liquids to wash away the toxic residue of
life's biochemical activity. Adopting these consumptive habits will reduce
the susceptibility to internal biochemical toxic waste accumulation, provide ample detoxification,
and reduce or prevent premature biological degradation (rapid aging) and allow for cellular robust
regeneration leading to "optimal health" and "vitality."
Now that you have been exposed to the true facts about natural biochemical
activity, pH and internal
biochemical balance, I hope it is easier to understand, if you keep
your internal biochemistry in balance, the likely hood of the onset of any
degenerative condition (rapid aging, illness and/or disease) is very unlikely.

challenges of personal excellence and optimal health acquisition. Take the
challenge and become the best that you can be, then teach others to do the same.
"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)

unhealthy behavior habits to
