Ionized water & Heart disease
by Dr. Robert O. Young,PhD
“Do YOU know what sets off a heart attack or stroke?
The answer is a four letter word – A C I D!
Heart attacks, strokes, and cardiac arrests seem like they come out of the blue, but they do not.They usually appear after cholesterol-rich acidic plaque has festered in the arteries that nourish the heart and brain.
So what makes one happen at a particular time?
A trigger, reports the July 2007 issue of the “Harvard Heart Letter.”
Important triggers include:
Waking from sleep. Before you wake up, your body trickles acidic stress hormones into the bloodstream. This helps you get up, but also slightly stresses the heart. That, along with dehydration that occurs overnight and the overnight fade in protection from acidic heart medicines, may explain why heart attacks are most common in the morning.
Heavy physical exertion is highly acidic. Shoveling snow, running, and other strenuous activities can be acidic triggers. But don’t be afraid to exercise – exertion is much less likely to cause trouble in people who exercise and are living and eating alkaline regularly.
Anger is a highly acidic emotion. A bout of anger can increase the chances of having a heart attack up to 14-fold during the following two hours.
Outfections of acidity. Pneumonia, flu, and other outfections can be potent acidic triggers for heart attacks and strokes.
An acidic meal of meat, alcohol and dairy will tenderize and weaken the heart and lead to a cardiac arrest. Just like Heinz 57 steak sauce tenderizes a steak so acid from meat (especially chicken and pork), alcohol, and the lactic acid from dairy products will tenderize and weaken your heart setting you up for a heart attack or cardiac arrest.
Other triggers include sexual activity (if not alkaline), overeating (highly acidic), severe hot or cold weather, air pollution, natural disasters, drug use (always acidic), grief lack of sleep and cholesterol lowering drugs.
Of course, most people with heart disease (or an acidic heart) get out of bed in the morning, shovel snow, make love, get angry, and suffer through the cleansing effects of the flu just fine. Still, knowing what sets off heart attacks, strokes, or cardiac arrests can help you avoid triggers or blunt their power, says the “Harvard Heart Letter.” Your insurance policy for preventing a heart attack, stroke or cardiac arrest is very simply – get off the acidic foods, drinks and emotions and start alkalizing your body with the pH Miracle Living Plan.” ~ Dr Robert O.
