Aging is a Drying-Out Disease
November 10, 2008 by Bob Livingston
For some reason, seniors drink less water as they get older and move less. And since they take so many drugs, this compounds their dehydration, especially with the taking of so many antihistamines. Antihistamines block hydration—leading to acidic blood and the masking of pain. What we mistake as pain and disease is really chronic cellular dehydration.
Seniors do not drink enough water to dilute and dispose of acid waste, greatly contributing to the aging process. Add to this a lack of exercise and acid buildup in the tissues, overloading the lymphatic system. Dehydration over time leads to chronic acid/alkaline imbalance (over acidity) causing chronic disease.
Increased water consumption contributes to alkalinity simply by expelling, diluting and washing out acidity. The diet of American people is highly acidic. Health is restored when diet is returned to 80/20 (alkaline/acidity ratio) coupled with rehydration. Rehydration by itself causes health miracles but added to an 80 percent alkaline diet, health benefits grow exponentially. The more alkaline your diet, the more rapid your improvement will be.
Low oxygen levels come with acidity. To contract an infection, our internal environment has to be acidic. Wouldn’t you guess that this is why some people develop colds and flu when others don’t in the same environment? The medical establishment is confusing symptoms with disease. Disease arises within and develops from an acid and dehydrated environment.
Overacidity and dehydration are the basic causes of all sickness and disease. It is the root cause of aging.
Make no mistake about it, the people selling drugs will never tell you this and they certainly don’t tell their medical students and doctors. And thank God the medical mafia can’t stop this rehydration because it’s as FREE as water. Seniors, start drinking eight glasses of water a day (with a 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt for each quart of water you drink) and get up and start walking. Sitting, by itself, will flat out kill you.
Americans eat too much animal protein which is acidic. Here there is a great need for calcium to neutralize the acid. The body always tries to return to an alkaline state the only way that it can by withdrawing calcium from the bones.
Take your daily calcium and check your saliva and urine pH. Your pH balance (7.365 pH) is the foundation for health and restored health. It’s a good idea to take a mineral supplement with the eight-glasses-a-day water therapy.
