Is your blood too acid or too alkaline? It could be the cause of some underlying health problems.

In my practice I focus on predispositions and tendencies toward ill health, which are the underlying problems waiting to happen. So when things get challenging in your life and you start to feel physically or emotionally bad – instead of  firefighting or using sticking plasters, intelligently improve your constitution in order to future-proof your long-term outlook.

In homeopathy, as with many other holistic therapies, we see the vital energy as the primary component to healing. What that means in practice is that we have to see other mind/emotions and body as a electro-magnetic field. And if electro-magnetic field is distorted in some way so that it hinders the flow of this vital energy. Vital Energy is really photonic (light) in nature and is therefore a neutral energy, as opposed to the pushing energy of electricity and the pulling energy of magnetism. So one can argue that in order to allow the photonic energy to have full access to our bio-energetic sphere in order to restore it and enable the optimal functioning, we have to balance or equalise that electro magnetism in our energy field. The trick is to understand the nature of the distortion in each individual and one good way is looking at the PH levels of the blood. Why? because PH is determined by the number of positively or negatively charged ions in the solution and at the risk of being too ‘sciencey’, because I want this information to remain crystal clear, alkaline solutions have too many positively charged hydrogen ions and acidity too many negatively charged oxygen ions – here we have the potential for distortion of the electromagnetic field if the PH is not in neutral – negative charges being the magnetic pull that occurs in acids and  positive charges being the electric push. The PH of blood should ideally be 7.4 to be neutral for it’s purpose, but any increase to 7.45 (or higher causing alkalosis) is already too alkaline. Similarly a decrease to 7.35 (or lower to cause acidosis) will be too acidic. But although the distortion may seem subtle, enabling the body to continue functioning, it can cause some profound long-term degradation of health.

The role blood plays in our physiology is to circulate Oxygen around the body – Oxygen,  is an embodiment of our life-force (prana as it is called in Eastern philosophies) and the effectiveness of this endeavour  will depend on how distorted the electro-magnetic field, as represented in this case by the PH level of the blood.

So how does this display itself in practice? What can we do at home, TODAY, to start neutralising our body in order for our life force to flow less impeded?

If you have any or a combination of the following symptoms, then your blood can tend to be TOO ACIDIC:

  • Negative emotions: predominate with depression, grief and sadness
  • Family or personal history includes: cancer, heart dis-ease
  • Physical tendencies include: cysts, hormonal imbalance
  • Mental tendencies include: Addiction, co-dependancy, bi-polar mood swings

We can start to see that due to the predominance of negative Oxygen ions, there seems to be a perceived ‘lack’ that needs to be filled, within the psyche. Oxygen, in my homeopathic system, represents the void, or nothingness, so there is a need to fill that void. Here the symptoms are about unhealthy attachments or retention of things that should be eliminated from the body. The skew is too much assimilation and not enough elimination.

To start neutralising the ACID, the solution that you can put in place today is to:

  • Completely cut out red and processed meat.
  • Increase your fresh fruit and vegetable intake to be 75% of your diet, and of that, a third to be consumed raw.

Conversely, here are some of the many symptoms you could have if  your blood tends to be TOO ALKALINE:

  • Negative emotions predominate with anger, anxiety or fear
  • Family or personal history includes: autoimmune diseases, digestion problems, allergies or skin problems.
  • Physical tendencies include: skin problems,  allergies, chronic inflammatory problems, calcification problems such as gall stones, candida
  • Mental tendencies include: Attention deficit, OCD, stress, autism

We can see how the predominance of positively charged hydrogen atoms are influencing the psyche, whereby, there is a feeling that there is too much and you need to get away from everything or get rid of things. Hydrogen, as an element in homeopathy, represents detachment so wants to disconnect to create more emptiness in it’s life. So the body and mind is either in ‘fight or flight’ mode. The skew therefore is too much elimination and not enough assimilation, for example lack of mental assimilation in the mind tendencies and digestive assimilation in the digestion problems.

To start neutralising the ALKALINE, the solution that you can put in place today is to:

  • Drink half a teaspoon of cider vinegar twice a day diluted in either hot or cold water. it is pure asetic acid and in another blog I will explain why this is a life-giver in the truest form.
  • Drink distilled water ideally exclusively from all other waters. Pure H2O, which contain only negatively charged ions will reach all areas of the body and magnetize the positively charged toxins and pull them out of the body.

Alopecia: the root of the problem

hair loss It is known that alopecia is an auto-immune disease whereby the immune system attacks the hair follicles. Mainstream medicine treats the problems on a purely physical level with localised steroid treatment to suppress the immune system temporarily. The hope is that the immune system rights itself again, which it often does, but the question is if and when. However, the mind and body are ‘two sides of the same coin’ and unless the emotional aspect of the sufferer is taken into account there will never be cure.

In my practice I have observed and treated very specific emotional issues that alopecia sufferers commonly have. Viewed holistically, hair is very much linked to personal identity. Sufferers ‘lose their identity’, typically, when not able to voice their feelings, and therefore cannot fully express who they are. Paradoxically, when suffering from emotional distress, as a coping mechanism, there is a disconnection with their own feelings, and ironically others tend to think they’re feeling fine.

Louise Hay writes that alopecia is a sign that the first emotional centre, relating to our identity within the primary family setting, is disturbed. So issues such as parental divorce or other upsets that threaten our security within our community could trigger off the emotional distress that could lead to alopecia.

By helping to reconnect and express these repressed emotional feelings with homeopathy we stop the body’s immune reacting against itself. When we reconnect with our feelings, we can express ourselves more freely without the fear of reprisal, and live a more emotionally fullfilled life, the one that we truly deserve.

Dying for clearer skin

dying for clear skin… was the title of a recent television documentary. It detailed the story of a promising young man who, after taking a repeated dose of the drug Roacutane for acne became severely depressed and ending his life.  This tragedy unfortunately illustrates my earlier point about treating the symptoms and not the cause of an illness: Acne, as well as all other skin conditions are a way for the body to eliminate toxins. Think of a bath, when it is overflowing with water then it flows via the overflow – it’s the same with skin – the body’s last resort if the eliminate organs, mainly liver and kidneys are not functioning properly. This drug tries to stop this elimination process by drying up the sebaceous glands, so that the body retains the toxins. This has a further knock-on effect whereby the mind will retain toxic thoughts, which are destructive and negative. Toxic overload is at the root of many serious diseases so here a few detox tips: For a more complete list, ask me for my detox PDF.
 
  • Drink about 4 pints of plain water per day – proportunately less when a child
  • Avoid sugar/wheat when possible.
  • Eat raw green leafy vegetables which contain folic acid good for re-balancing the liver.
  • Give yourself a 16 hour food break to allow the liver to recuperate.  
  • Avoid dwelling on past negative events and people. A toxic body leads to a toxic mind and also vice-versa.

“Dying for Clearer Skin” was on BBC3 in November 2012.
