MS and Diet – What Role Does Acid Play?2 min read
MS and diet are generally regarded as being closely related. I have recently been reading up on the findings of Doctor Robert O Young, a leading biochemist and nutritionist who has made some remarkable discoveries about how the human body is affected by acid and alkalinity.
Perhaps one of Doctor Young’s most well-known discoveries is his theory of the cause of obesity. He has shown that fat is actually an over acidification problem, which means that the body creates fat cells to carry acid away from your vital organs, so that these acids don’t literally choke your organs to death. His findings conclude that fat is actually a response from the body to an alarming over acidic condition.
Fatigue is one of the major symptoms of an over acidic body and is also as you are probably aware, one of the main symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Doctor Young says that the pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies and that extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. A chronically over acidic pH corrodes body tissue and slowly eats into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries, and if left unchecked will interrupt all cellular activities and functions.
Essentially what he is saying is that over acidification interferes with life itself, leading to all sickness and disease. The solution therefore is to correct the pH level in your body by creating an advanced internal alkaline environment. He uses the analogy of a fish tank and a sick fish to provide a simple example. If a fish is sick the solution is generally to change the water, not treat the fish, and in a similar way we must treat the fluid that our organs exist in by hydrating our body with alkalizing water.
