The Acid/Alkaline Balance
Gluten Intolerance keeps us from becoming alkaline and the candida yeast grows
It has been said that we live and die at a cellular level. All the cells (billions of them)
that make up the human body are slightly alkaline, and must maintain alkalinity in order to function and remain
healthy and alive. Our immune system helps maintain health but is more clearly described as a sophisticated cleanup
It is recommended that our diet be 80% Alkaline to 20% Acid and at the very least 60/40.
If we were to ask "What is Killing Us?", the answer would might be Too much Acid. It is known that an acidic (or
low oxygen) environment encourages the breeding of fungus, mold, bacteria and viruses. The candida fungus causes
cravings for sugar.
Let’s look at an example;
If we were to seal the door to our freezer and then unplug it, Come back and open the door in two weeks, what
would we find? Mold, Bacteria, and Microscopic "bugs". Things will be growing and multiplying. Where did they come
from? They did not sneak in—Remember- the door was sealed. The answer is… They were always there. It is simply that
the environment changed to a more inviting atmosphere encouraging the growth of organisms that survive very well in
warm, moist, low-oxygen (or acid) environments. This can be likened to a shift in the biological atmosphere in our
bodies from a healthy oxygenated, alkaline environment to an unhealthy, oxygen-poor, acid environment. You see,
what is healthy for us is unhealthy for the germs and what is healthy for them is unhealthy for us.
Our bodies use oxygen and calcium to maintain its alkaline balance. Green, leafy, organic, oxygen-rich foods
give us oxygen and calcium. Plant-based calcium, is the calcium our bodies can readily use. Other forms of calcium
are often simply ground up coral or other substances which are mostly unusable by the body and often cause harm-
kidney stones, arthritis, hardening of the arteries... The minerals of the earth are best utilized by our bodies if
they have first been processed through plants. Calcium nourishes all the cells with the nutrition each cell
requires to perform its duty.Caffeine’s will keep the digestive tract acidic and pull calcium from the bones as
will acidic foods such as too much meat and dairy. Replace caffeine with an alkaline herbal whole live tea.
The biggest problem scientists have found is that, over time, the human body becomes depleted of calcium.
Calcium buffers the blood to maintain a pH level of 7.365 necessary to keep us alive. This buffer maintains the
alkaline level in your blood. Without it you would die. If the acid level of your blood changes even slightly you
would die immediately. But in order to supply enough calcium for buffering we must have enough calcium being
absorbed from our diet or our body will simply go to the next available source and rob the needed calcium from our
bones and teeth. The more acid we become the harder it is for oxygen to be present. So, our biological environment
becomes more and more oxygen deprived, promoting the perfect environment for disease and yeast (or mold). Without
adequate oxygenation, unfriendly bacteria, viruses, molds and fungus can live and prosper. Then our cells cannot
carry on their life-giving functions in a very efficient manner because our biological chemical reactions need
oxygen to operate. I can recommend a herbal calcium from plants.
The people with the gluten intolerance problems will have an acidic body. The "sticky gluten" paste will flatten
the villi in the small intestines. The villi are the hair like finger projections that absorb all the needed
minerals like calcium and other nutrients. When we have the gluten intolerance we can’t get our calcium and other
minerals. Minerals feed the glands and the glands run the body.
So if you are an O or A blood type make sure you take LaZelle’s gluten intolerant to determine how severely
gluten sensitive you are. If you are AB or B blood type you need to get your body to the alkaline by cleaning up
your diet and following your ph chart based on your blood type. If you have alcoholic genetics or diabetic you
should be advised to lessen the amount of wheat or flour that you eat. Go to a gluten free.
The herbal foods LaZelle suggest in your daily diet will feed you and suffocate the candida yeast. They are
alkaline and the candida yeast CANNOT live on live, whole, herbal foods.. They taste good and are the most superior
food source in the world at this time. They are strong enough to help the body cleanse itself of toxins and
suffocate the candida and repair the damage to the organs through the strong nutrition. Since they are whole foods
they are safe and interfere with no medicines and are just a superior food source available to us now.
The Acid/Alkaline balance is critical to good health.
The human body is very intelligent. As we become more and more acid, the body starts to set up defense
mechanisms to keep the damaging acid from entering our vital organs. It is known that acid gets stored in fat
cells. After all, if the acid does come into contact with an organ it has a chance to eat holes in the tissue. This
may cause the cells to mutate. The oxygen level drops in this acid environment and the calcium is depleted. So as a
defense, your body will actually make fat to protect you from your over-acid self. Those fat cells and
cellulite deposits may actually be packing up the acid and trying to keep your vital organs from damage. Many
people have found that a return to a healthy inner environment and lifestyle helps them to lose excess fat
As the body becomes more acid, it will steal from the bones and teeth and tissue what is necessary to maintain
the vital body functions. But, when we supply the body with calcium this brings the alkaline pH up and drops the
acid levels down.
One of the first warning signs of an overly acid body is calcium deposits. There is no scientific proof of the
association between calcium deposits and nutritional calcium. In fact quite the opposite is found in the results of
testing calcium deposits in the body.
Calcium deposits come not from the dietary calcium but from the structural calcium leached from our bones
and teeth due to an acid body. I feel its necessary to keep our body’s to the alkaline and that is dependent on
what we eat and using a calcium our body can digest.
So, if calcium deposits are forming, we know our inner atmosphere is too acid. Our dietary intake of calcium is
not keeping up with the calcium needed and we are pulling calcium from our bones and teeth. It all works in process
-- as our bodies become too acid our pH levels drop; as the calcium level drops so does the oxygen level leaving
you tired and fatigued allowing fungus, mold, parasites, bad bacteria and viral infections to flourish and gain
hold throughout the body.
It is interesting to note that you often won’t have just some of the invaders. If you have Candida you will
likely have bad bacteria, fungus and parasites because they all flourish in the same environment. Candida yeast
comes from stress and the GLUTEN INTOLERANCE..
What are things we can do to change all this?
The first thing is to know your blood type and follow the food plan that is best for your type.
Second, we must get in there and nourish and cleanse the body to get it under control. We have to support the
body with good nutrition to build new cells or regenerate to a healthy balanced life. We are in an era of
malnutrition because of mineral depleted soil on which our foods are grown. What we have is lots of food but very
LITTLE nutritional value. Many foods in the grocery stores are genetically engineered and these foods don’t help us
with living enzymes and good nutrition.
The quality of the foods you decide to eat will make all the difference in the world because not all foods
Eating alkalizing foods including lots of green foods and fruits and the Basic Nutritional herbal
nutritional program I suggest.
Limiting (or eliminating) our intake of phosphates which binds calcium from being absorbed. Phosphates are
commonly found in all carbonated drinks and in all animal protein.
Adding dietary calcium in the form of plant based An herbal calcium enhances the alkaline levels and is most
easily absorbed by the body. Not only does calcium keep the blood and cells alkaline, it also works to soften
& hydrate the skin.
Changing from an acid to an alkaline body takes time and herbal, live, whole foods provide all the nutrition
needed to accomplish in a reasonable time.
During this century, despite many technological advances in our society, we have seen many threatening declines.
One of the most obvious and dangerous is the nature of food consumption. Food consumption in our most advanced
countries has changed from nutritious raw foods to highly processed foods low in nutritional value—over processed
and over cooked., and genetically engineered with no living enzymes to feed the DNA of the cells.
Over 100,000 new chemicals have been introduced into our foods, air and water. All of these changes have put
even greater stresses on our body’s ability to affect the chemistry of our body. As a result we see huge increases
in the incidence of chronic and life-threatening diseases.
Your logical question at this point is, "How can I adjust and maintain a healthy acid/ alkaline balance?"
The herbal foods LaZelle uses is superior nutrition and are alkaline in nature because they are made from fresh
fruits and vegetables, the Chinese call them herbs. Actually all growing plants are herbaceous or herb-like.
These herbal foods are concentrated which helps the Acid/Alkaline balance to promote health .
You’ll have to ask yourself, "Is pH balance a luxury or a necessity?" When we get the body alkaline it can
function correctly and utilize all nutrients better. The most important thing you can do for your body is to eat
the herbal foods. Once you do, the parasites, fungus, mold, yeast and bad bacteria will begin to depart because
they cannot exist in a healthy alkaline environment. Our private war against the daily assaults of stronger and
deadlier organisms and our fight to stay alkaline will not end with a magic cure. Good health requires getting the
proper nutrition on a daily basis. The herbal foods LaZelle recommends adding to the daily diet are superior and
help to get the body to the alkaline state.. For our traditional foods we need to be between 60-80% alkaline and
20-40% acidic. We use our ph charts according to our blood type for our traditional food selection .
Check with LaZelle Bradley as how to set up your own account to order from the herbal food grocery store. These
are foods to be added to your regular traditional diet on a daily basis. These foods are for all ages, pregnant
women, babies, children to the elderly.
Based on my own health challenges I believe that the person suffering from gluten intolerance is kept in the
acidic state due to the fact the gluten blocks the absorption of minerals and especially the calcium. The candida
yeast grows in an acidic environment and the candida yeast craves the sugars. The cravings will take over an
individual as they can’t get fed.
