“I don’t believe in diseases. Chronic pain, ailments, and diseases are just symptoms of acidosis from not eating a fruit-based diet.” —Jay Robb, “The Diet Guru®”
FEELING THE BURN, IN THIS CASE, IS NOT GOOD
Do you have any aches or pains? Does your lower back ever feel stiff and tight or ache when you bend over. Do some of your joints hurt and feel stiff? Do you have acne, skin rashes, or itching of your skin? Are your hands or feet swollen, or swell periodically? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be feeling the burn, but not in a good way. You may be feeling the burn because your body is overloaded with internal acids that are literally burning you from the inside out and causing you pain and misery due to acid-induced inflammation.
ACID CAUSES YOU TO POOP OUT IN THE GYM
Gym rats and fitness buffs often use the expression, “Feel the burn!” What they are referring to is the burn one feels while performing intense exercise. The burn is caused by the formation of lactate (commonly called lactic acid) in the muscle. When exertion of a muscle becomes intense, such as heavy weight training, sprinting, or biking uphill, the exercise becomes anaerobic (without oxygen) and lactic acid is created and burned as fuel through a fermentation process. Some of the lactic acid does not get burned (fermented), so it stays in the muscle creating an acid medium. This overload of acid makes the muscle incapable of contracting properly, rendering it unable to perform. This easily explains why you poop out at the end of a tough set when training with weights. The muscle is simply too acidic to contract and perform work. This is the body’s safety valve that stops you from injuring yourself from overexertion.
WHERE DOES THE ACID GO?
During periods of very intense exercise, many authorities believe that there is actual damage to the cells, which creates inflammation in the muscle. This inflammation, not residual lactic acid, is that burning sensation in the muscle that is often experienced the day after a hard workout. Anything that burns (and causes inflammation) is acidic. What most people don’t know is what happens to this acid waste in the muscle that causes the initial burning and the residual burning. Most folks also don’t know that your cells also produce acid waste as they take in energy and burn it, much the same as your car takes in gasoline and emits acidic waste after the fuel is burned in the cylinders. So where does all the acid waste go from your car and from the 50-trillion cells in your body?
YOUR LYMPH IS NOT MOVED BY YOUR HEARTBEAT. IT REQUIRES ACTIVITY.
Your car has an exhaust system to take care of the toxic acid waste (exhaust) that your engine creates from the combustion of gasoline. Just like your car, your body has an exhaust system that carries away the toxic acid waste the cells create after the combustion of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The exhaust system in your body is called your lymph system. Your lymph is a clear-to-yellowish slightly viscous fluid that travels through vessels just under your skin, similar to how your bloodstream flows throughout your body. Your blood is pumped by your heart, while your lymph is pumped primarily by your own physical activity.
YOUR BLOOD IS ALWAYS ALKALINE, BUT NOT YOUR LYMPH
Your blood is alkaline and your lymph should also be alkaline. Your blood pH is about 7.4 and supplies alkaline nourishment to the cells. Your blood pH cannot range any more than 7.35 to 7.45 or death can occur, so blood pH is always alkaline. Your lymph system is different. While your lymph should be alkaline with a pH of at least 7.0 (base), it can become overloaded with acidic waste without killing you—but an acidic lymph (and too much acid fluids around your cells) can make you ill and drain you of vital energy.
PAIN, SWELLING, STIFFNESS CAN MEAN EXCESS ACIDS
Your lymph removes acidic waste from the cells. There is trouble in paradise when toxic acid waste is not removed fast enough by your lymph system with the end result being pain, inflammation, and swelling—the typical results when your body is burned. In this case, the burn is on the inside or your body and it manifests as PAIN. This is caused by acids being left in the fluids surrounding your cells and by having an acid-overloaded lymph system. Acids burn. Inflammation in your body means there are excess acids burning you inside. When your body tries to get those acids out through the skin, the skin is often burned in the process (evidenced by redness of the skin, burning, or itching).
DISEASES ARE JUST CATCHY NAMES
Doctors often call this inner and outer burning sensation by names such as arthritis, seborrheic dermatitis, tonsillitis, eczema, psoriasis, shingles, edema, Rosacea, Gerd, thrush, acid reflux, and nephritis. Common names associated with this inner toxic acid burn are backache, headache, rashes, acne, joint pain, swollen ankles, bloating, migraine, flushing of the skin, Measles, Mumps, swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, and infected tonsils. What most every illness or disease (I don’t believe in diseases) is caused by is the body being overloaded with internal acids that your lymph, kidneys, and skin cannot get removed fast enough.
EAT MORE FRUIT!
Do you have any of the health issues named above or any health issues in general? These problems, including being overweight, can be directly linked to acidosis. I am a clinical nutritionist, NOT a doctor. I treat acidosis, not diseases. I no longer believe in diseases because I understand acidosis. The remedy for acidosis is to alkalize your body by eating a diet that is fruit-based while avoiding acid-based foods such as meat, poultry, seafood, fish, and grains. In other words, “EAT MORE FRUIT!”
