It can be eye opening to see how much acidic food we put in our system. I know lots of people that seem to be self-conscious but still find that they crave a lot of acidic types of foods.

Do you know your ph? By getting ph strips at a pharmacy, pool store or lab you can test your urine in the moring and see it’s range. A good range is between 6.5 and 7.2. Most of are too acidic.When we are too acidic, the body takes minerals from important organs and our bones to neutralize the acid.

These minerals can include calcium, sodium, potassium and magenesium. Though we may not notice it, an overly acidic situation can develop in time into various symptoms and problems.

In the Book Alkalize or Die , Dr. Theodore A. Baroody says ,”The countless names of illnesses do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause…too much tissue acid waste in the body!”- Theodore A. Baroody, N.D., D.C., Ph.D.

Some problems thatcan indicate acidosis include: bladder and kidney conditions, immune deficiency, diabetes, weak brittle bones and lactic acid build up. PH is behind the bodies electrical system, intracellular activity and the way our bodies utilize enzymes, and minerals, and vitamins. That is why pH is one of the first things to be looked at if you are experiencing an imbalance in your body. Decades ago Dr. Otto Warburg, the only physician to ever win two Nobel prizes, proved that cancer can not exist in an alkaline/high pH environment.

We can eat more alkalinic foods which include brocoli, carrots, dried figs, celery, grains and many fruits. On the other
hand, the active ingredient in the soft drink Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8 and it will dissolve a nail in about four days. The phosphates in soft drinks bind to calcium and we can’t absorb it. The typical Western diet is largely composed of acidic or acidifying elements (proteins, cereals, sugars). Alkaline foods such as vegetables are eaten in much smaller quantities; their alkaline content is insufficient to neutralize surplus acids.

Stimulants like tobacco, coffee, tea, and alcohol are also extremely acidifying. When we get angry or stressed we are also making the body ph more acidic. Our ph changes not just from the foods we eat, but due to our emotional states.

Some books worth reviewing at the library include:

Understanding Acid-Base – A medical text on the fundamentals of human blood pH, by Benjamin Abelow, M.D. 1998; Williams &
Wilkins, Baltimore, MD.

The pH Miracle – Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health, by Robert O. Young, Ph.D. 2002, Warner Books, Inc. New York, NY.

Reverse Aging – Scientific Health Methods, by Sang Whang. 1994; Siloam Enterprise, Inc., Englewood Cliffs, NJ.

Acid & Alkaline – An overview of pH and human health by Herman Aihara 1986: George Ohsawa Macrobiotic Foundation, Oroville,
CA.

Try and make healthy choices when shopping and eating out to keep your body ph balanced.

I don’t think mosquitos or ants are ever going to be loved by us. There is a natural repulsion to getting bitten and feeling itchy. No one likes to see ants crawling near food, in the bathroom or disprupting a picnic. Today I was taking a shower and saw an ant on my bathroom floor. I took a spray bottle I use in the shower which was 2-3 teaspoons of moisturizing soap in water and then sprayed it. It stopped moving. I don’t like stepping on ants and this was much easier. (My mom used to vacuum wasps but I don’t like to do that either!).

For mosquito bites, I’ll just put on the gel and it will stop itching right away. Taking b -vitamins supplements is also supposed to stop their attraction . Some people never get bitten by mosquitos. I don’t get many bites but when it happens I like to stop the itch and have the red mark subside asap. Miracle II Soap also has no pesticide smell and the ingredients are safe on the skin.

I’m naturally pretty frugal and I hate to spend more than I need to or waste. I wanted to mention that with the go green miracle ii products, instructions include remembering to dilute the product. Most people are not used to using a concentrated product and are used to pre-mixed products with water. The miracle ii soap needs to be diluted. The founder, Clayton Tedeton, said that people can actually do a face peel by using the soap as-is. This means it is very strong and it has to be diluted down for body care (as well as cleaning of course). I have not tried it for a face peel though people do that for wrinkle reduction.

Jerrry Seinfeld had a funny bit about how we tend to ignore directions. He was saying how people ignore instructions and warnings for things serious. But, when it comes to dry cleaning, people actually seem to take it as gospel. Senifeld said, “The only warning label people really respect is ‘dry-clean only.’ Y’know what I mean? Speed limits, lung cancer, cigarette warnings – your very life is at stake! People go, ‘Ah, the hell with it!’ But dry-clean only? ‘Oh, don’t put that in the wash! It’s dry-clean only! Are you crazy?!”

Anyway, save money and dilute the miracle ii soap. It is an interesting question about why people are so exact about certain areas but completely ignore other ones that may be more critical. For cleaning you just can put 1-2 teaspoons of the miracle 2 soap into a 24 oz spray botle from walmarts and dilute rest of water. For medium size jobs make it an ounce or two. For heavy cleaning projects it can be two to four ounces (again dilute with water). Remember because it suds that you need to add water slowly.

When you use a go green product, remember it can be concentrated. I know this is true for both “miracle ii soap” as well as Dr Bronner soaps. If you are using the miracle 2 soap on your face, be sure to dilute it as otherwise it can be a skin peel product (which is what some people do intentionally!). Obviously doing a job of washing the floors will require less dilution than to use on your own skin. Think it out when you try to design things. I try to make various spray bottles for different applications – for instance for personal care I use one strength, for kitchen small jobs another and for hard grease cleaning jobs , a max strength version of miracle ii soap .

I am sure for other organic go green cleaners you need to do something similar. Of course this is also good to save money as you use less of the product. Also remember that certain go green products there is peppermint or other oils, you may not want to use these on floors as that can make them slippery! Use common sense.

Also certain products look natural but they have clorox or dangers about requiring ventilation! This is because a lot of commercial products now try to captilize on the go green movement, yet without modifying their chemicals and ingredients. Just throwing in aloe vera or something natural does NOT make it a go green product!

Stress can effect your health condition. I see all the time in psychotherapy people with bad stomach problems due to restricted breathing from anxiety. Shallow breathing isn’t giving you proper oxygen circulation. It’s not just ulcers, but also you can get stress disorders like irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis or other intestinal disturbances.

Stress also can make us unable to focus in the moment. For instance, it can be hard to listen or be in the moment because there are agitating thoughts. In meditation class, they often say that we are unhappy because when things aren’t the way we want them to be, we shut down.

Sometimes, just taking a miracle ii detox bath can get rid of negative states of mind. Bathing or showering symbolically helps to clear the mind, though physically there is a way the toxins are removed as well. When you use miracle ii soap the funny thing is that there is a strong relaxation that accompanies the bathing.

One technique to use when you are in a stressful situation is to try to remember that the negative situation is not permanent. You won’t see your boss on the weekend. You don’t have to deal with the presentation once it’s over. The annoying kid in class isn’t in your home at night etc. Find ways to not see the stressful situation as ultimate and huge.

Stress can even happen when you are on vacation , the place where you are supposed to relax. For instance you can see how stressed this man became when he found that the car he parked at an Off Airport Parking area that was supposed to be secure didn’t keep his car there but moved it to the street! You have to keep humor to avoid things from building up and keep perspective to. If you saw the movie Slumdog Millionaire , you can see how difficult life can be and that many of our concerns are insignificant in comparison.

I read a disturbing piece today in google news about how Dr. Adrienne Olson (who happens to be a breast cancer survivor) found estrogen in at least six well-known moisturizing creams. These are cited as potential carcinogens for female cancers.

At Rutgers U in the summer of 2008, research with mice showed that four moisturizers promoted skin cancer. In that study, the ones used were Dermabase, Eucerin and Vanicream.

Dr. Olsen tested 16 non-prescription skin moisturizers in all price ranges and sent them to a lab to be studied. The estrogen hormones estradiol, estrone, and estriol were found in six of the products. What was striking was that they weren’t listed in the ingredient list.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, nearly 30% increase in the risk of breast cancer was due to women taking combination HRT (hormone replacement therapy) pills.

Some experts say that when you apply estrogen directly to the skin it is worse than taking it orally due the absorption. Olsen believes that applying estrogen-laced skin lotion on a daily basis can be dangerous and possibly raise you risk to develop breast cancer.

Please look for natural products that don’t add hormones, preservatives and additives. Stop by Miracle II Skin Moisturizer to read more about a moisturizer without hormones or additives. In fact it is recommended you use the product within six months due to the absence of preservatives.

Miracle II Soap can be used in some ways you may not have thought about. Lather some up with water and use it to shave your beard or legs. People say that they can use their razor longer than with other soaps or shaving creams. If you’ve been exposed to chemicals take a miracle ii soap bath. I spoke with someone who had a furnace problem and didn’t know it. There was carbon monoxide poisoning but since it’s odorless and colorless she didn’t know it. When she took a long miracle ii soap bath the water turned brown.

The soap needs to be diluted and shouldn’t be use as-is since it’s very concentrated. Another use is to either wash laundry in washing machine with a few caps of the miracle 2 soap or use the laundry ball and use 1/2 a teaspoon. The ingredients in laundry detergents cause allergic reactions for some. When you sweat you are absorbing chemicals into your body.
