The pH Riddle

by Capt. Randall

pH is a handy indicator of bioenergy and body voltage from the proton’s point of view.

When a person feels unwell, he usually goes to a doctor and wants a diagnosis… and specific treatment. Conventional medicine assigns a unique title to the set of symptoms, but fails to correlate the common clinical signs of systemic inflammation and address the problem at its core. All chronic “diseases” involve inflammation (oxidative stress); everything from arthritis, asthma, auto-immune and Alzheimer’s to diabetes, cancers and heart attack. If you have High CRP(C-reactive protein)/white cell count/blood pressure/blood sugar/uric acid/HDL/ferritin/homocysteine…or pain, depression, infections, allergies and digestive problems…Guess what? YOU GOT INFLAMMATION! Find its source conditions and reverse them.

To understand the workings of the human body, one must revisit three physio-chemical principles.

1) All cells run on energy, mainly in the form of ATP electrons.

2) On the other hand; leukocytes, phages and immune defense rely on electron-ripping oxidation (and proteolytic enzymes).

3) pH gauges the balance between electrons and protons which reflects the body’s charge environment (oxidation-reduction potential, ORP) which indicates bioenergy levels, cell function, enzyme production and immune strength… as well as its ability to resist oxidative stress and inflammation.

pH can be used to infer electron populations from the proton’s point of view.

pH is a useful measure!

pH is the logarithmic scale of positively charged protons (hydrogen ion concentration)…”A look at electron populations from the proton’s point of view.”

Pure water at pH 7 is neutral.

Below pH 7; protons/acidity increase— (as electrons/alkalinity decrease)– by powers of 10 toward one.

Above pH 7; protons/acidity decrease— (as electrons/alkalinity increase)– by powers of 10 toward fourteen.

Internal pH can be approximated using saliva or urine with test strips or meters.

Electron populations in the healthy range register a pH of 7.4 and voltage above 40 millivolts.

At a healthy pH of 7.4; electrons, chemical bonds and oxygen survive.

· Blood viscosity, RBC clumping and blood pressure decrease so circulation improves, oxygen and nutrients are delivered efficiently, the workload on the heart is lessened, ATP output is optimal and pathogens are discouraged. Cells are supplied with fuel and nutrients, metabolic acids are neutralized by plentiful oxygen and cell molecules are protected and preserved.

When acidic protons build pH drops below 7.4;

· Free radicals have free reign, cells and immune response lose energy, DNA/RNA lose expression and enzyme output falters, mitochondria sustain damage, circulation and transport slow, blood vessels are eroded and scarred, gums bleed and every membrane and cell structure becomes prone to destruction. Eventually genetic material is damaged and telomeres shorten; chronic diseases and rapid ageing follow.

Unwanted free radicals generated by metals/toxins/radiations literally rip organic molecules apart by stealing the electrons from the bonds that hold them intact. An immune response operates on the same principle. H2O2 and Reactive Oxygen Species— ROS, violently oxidize pathogens, defective cells, cancers and breakdown organic debris; a good thing as long as the body-charge reservoir can contain the destruction. As pH drops, body charge falters so free radicals and the fires of immune defense can spread and do unwanted damage. Chronic disease and premature ageing both occur under a climate of electron scarcity; inflammation!

Raise pH/Raise bioenergy:

· Breathing alone tightly regulates pH, but there’s more to the story…

· Improve metabolism so fuel delivery to mitochondria does NOT exceed oxygen penetration…This means NOT flooding the system with rapidly absorbed processed sugary foods, vegetable oils and high proportions of protein which overtake the availability of oxygen to neutralize electron-gobbling acids. pH balancing diets have been around for years and this is the real reason they are effective.Peruse tables of alkalizing/acid forming foods.

· Many wise physicians speak to the key importance of sluggish circulation in chronic disease. We become painfully aware of lactic acid buildup in tired muscles. After we breathe enough O2 to turn that lactic acid back into lactate, the pain disappears. The same process occurs un-noticeably in mitochondria 24/7 until enough O2 arrives to neutralize lactic/uric acid backlogs. Blood flow and oxygen delivery are charge dependent!

· Optimize levels and ratios of pH buffering electrolytes like magnesium, potassium, calcium, bicarbonates…

· Increase: intake of phyto-antioxidants/polyphenols/fibrous vegetation, earthing, sunshine, breath work, exercise, sleep, fasting, community support and sense of purpose. Emotional stability minimizes acidic stress, sympathetic fight/flight activation and the overproduction of cortisol. Nervous hyper-breathing reduces O2 delivery.

· Vigorous circulation, oxygen delivery and waste removal are vitally important (think of cells as fish in an aquarium) and depend on well charged electron-rich alkaline blood and fluids. Cancers and other conditions thrive under stagnant hypoxic acidic conditions (Warburg) where voltage drops below 20-25mv and where protons turn oxygen to water. When acidity is reduced allowing voltage to exceed 40mv, a boost in oxygen reverses cancers, infections and other chronic disease. This is how the alkalizing effects of magnesium or sodium bicarbonate, hyperbaric oxygen and Mega C for examples, help cancers revert to aerobic respiration..and vanish.

· Water is the charge matrix cells float in; blood, lymph, and extracellular fluids… Connective tissues are packed with highly conductive structured H2O/H3O2. (Pollack)

· Excessive alkalinity is also problematic and may be due to prescription drugs or vegetarian extremes.

Lowers pH/Decreased bioenergy:

· Fear, stress, poor perception of life, psychological dependence and personal dis-empowerment through socio-cultural-religious-political-consumeristic-media narratives, death consciousness, loneliness, sedentarianism, sun avoidance.

· High glycemic, acid forming, low ORAC diets. Find these food lists to direct healthful choices. Gut flora depend on diet, fiber, antibiotic misuse and the lack of contact with nature, animals and live soil.

· Low grade bacterial/viral/yeast infections, organo-toxins/mycotoxins/bacterial toxins/stray proteins… inhaled, in sinuses/lungs or leaked through gut lining or blood-brain barrier.

· Mineral levels deficient in magnesium, potassium, sulfur, iodine, selenium, zinc, traces. Hair analysis recommended.

· Metal burdens; Aluminum, mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, etc. Hair analysis critical. Detox is simple/cheap/effective using Mega C protocol. Check air pollutants, smoking, home, occupational and food sources. Metals are top charge killers and attract pathogens.

· Poorly constructed cell membranes..Vegetable oils, oxidized/trans fats build faulty cell and mitochondrial membranes. A high ratio of Omega 3 to 6 fats and quality saturated fats are essential in fat soluble vitamin absorption, Vitamin D production, membrane construction and metabolize without undue acidity. Fatty cell membranes contribute to the body’s electrical charge.

While wading through countless medical studies and reviewing oxidation-reduction reactions, my focus remained fixed on cell physiology and basic electro-molecular chemistry; electrons, electrical potential, charge separation, structured states of water and the effects of oxidative stress/inflammation on cell membranes, oxygen delivery, metabolism via Krebs/electron transport and the grinding erosion of DNA/RNA function over time.

After successfully applying organic methods to plants and electron-energy principles to animals and humans, the obvious became apparent; most symptoms arise from bio-energy shortages that cause downstream errors in normal physiology. I saw that man-made oxidative stressors like chemical GM grain/feedlot agriculture, deforestation, chemical/mining industries, burning fossil fuels and acid rain were not only ruining human health, but the health of all life forms on the planet. Every avenue and street led to this realization. When symptoms are pigeonholed as unique diseases, we become distracted from declining “climatic” conditions.

The very thought of Vitamin C, along with many other harmless holistic ideas, had long been “forbidden” by the pharma-medical establishment. Why? Is it because they are inexpensive and work at the seed level of first causes? Only when the body is supplied all necessary nutrients, vitamins and minerals, and has toxins/metals/stress removed from the picture can it regenerate and heal.

Overwhelming electro-molecular inputs speed circulation, oxygen delivery and healing to give Mega C universal importance anchoring a protocol including other antioxidative/oxidative therapies, complete vitamin-mineralization, a diet favoring predominantly organic alkaline foods, grass-fed animal products, balanced Omega 3/6 and saturated fats, exercise/sunshine/meditation-stress reduction.

· The rationale for mega-dosing Vitamin C is to force a quantitative shift in equilibria, boost body voltage and reboot cell function.

· A second benefit is the generation of H2O2 in an immune-like oxidative burst that dispatches cancers and pathogens. (PubMed)

· A third reason to use Vitamin C is as a lifesaving metal mobilizer/chelator/detoxifier. It is recommended in doses of at least 2000mg/day for the young and healthy just to tread water and offset daily industrial accumulations. Older? Sick? Increase the therapeutic use to 20-50 GRAMS/day orally to bowel tolerance in divided doses 4-5X/day or every 3hrs. IV infusions may top 150 grams per treatment for infections, viral brain-swells and other critical situations. All Vitamin C dosages are individual, no RDA can determine one’s electron/voltage deficit. Take plenty of pure Vitamin C crystals (l-ascorbic acid) mixed with half as much baking soda. I don’t sell it, it’s cheap in bulk and any excess is harmless and will be quickly eliminated when bowel tolerance is exceeded. It is also recommended to frequently include sulfur rich eggs and vegetables like brassicas/onion/garlic in the diet to boost mitochondria protective glutathione (Jaffe) and ROS killing catalase.

· A fourth major function of Vitamin C is to restore CTs (connective tissues). — Skin, bone, tendon, ligament, intestinal/blood vessel lining and fascia form the major proportion of the human body and house structured water as a chief element of the body battery. Glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, sulfur and silica compounds are usually recommended together with lysine/proline and Vitamin C to maintain and restore CTs; arthritic joints, skin tone and limit spread of tumor cells (Rath)…Or one can simply consume quantities of collagen-rich bone-cartilage broths along with daily Mega C!

Mega-dosing is totally foreign to the conventional idea of Recommended Daily Allowances. Beside Mega C, doses exponentially larger than RDAs have proven effective with charge-building niacin, riboflavin, B-12, CoQ10 and fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K for short periods. Countless medical doctors have ridiculed mega-dosing without understanding the science involved while alternative physicians, here and abroad, have practiced such protocols successfully for decades.

Specific herbs, vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, essential oils, energy applications like electronic and acoustic devices, pulsed lasers and acupuncture, and physical manipulation via chiropractic and deep massage can top-out treatment of specific manifestations. A single practice, dietary change or supplement is rarely the solution. Since every physician has a different approach and emphasis, it is easy to become confused. Instead, an organized protocol based on the principles of maintaining or correcting body charge/pH — simplifies care choices and insures a disease free future.

To stay healthy today, a high degree of spiritual sovereignty, personal responsibility and careful attention to diet, detoxification, lifestyle habits and stress are required. That takes a practiced skill-set of patiently acquiring quality and organic ingredients, scratch cooking and the correct use of supplements to shift body chemistry. Take the time to research seasonal local foods and seek out healthier recipes.

Time alone wears inexorably on genetic instructions and will eventually cripple cell function and result in a terminal chronic condition or two or three…So why speed-up the process?

***Homework alert; Peruse lists of acid forming and alkaline foods, glycemic-index and ORAC ratings as a guide to finding the most varied clean and nutritionally complete diet best for you. Learn to make stocks of fish, pork, beef, poultry and game; for soups, sauces, gumbos and gravies. A hair mineral/metal analysis is a valuable guide that can be repeated a year later to verify progress. Search the GMI database and my collection of blogs ( for particular concerns. Attend to mental states and do whatever it takes to eliminate fear, worry and anger; meditate, recreate and choose to stay in a happy state.
