If I were to ask you, what’s the largest organ in your body, what would your answer be? If you go by what we learned at school… you might respond "the skin." However, recent research has shown that a new organ is the largest organ in the body.
This giant organ is called the interstitium or fascia. It contains a fluid called the interstitial fluid, that compartmentalises the toxins in your body. The fascia can be found in between the blood and the skin. If your body gets too acidic, your blood will attempt to create balance, by using the interstitium as a buffer for the blood.
Interestingly, you can have clean blood work, because your body has compensated with the fascia. The only way to find out the truth about the pH of your body is to test the interstitial fluid. Which is a process that doctors rarely do.
In this article, we’ll go over what the fascia has to do with the pH of your body, your inner environment, sepsis, testing the pH of your body, as well as how body pH can change your DNA (and what to do about it).
Sepsis is the No.1 Cause of Death in Hospitals
Sepsis is one of the biggest killers in the UK, and the number of people developing sepsis is on the rise. With around 123,000 cases per year in England alone. Accounting for 37,000 deaths.
Some naturopathic doctors believe that sepsis is an acidic condition in the fascia. Others think that sepsis is a bacterial condition, when in fact, the bacteria forms because of the acidic environment in the interstitium. Which in turn promotes the proliferation of bacteria.
Rather than blaming bacteria for the condition, you need to cleanse the environment of the acidic build-up. How? By creating a more alkaline environment.
Testing Morning Urine With pH Strips
The pH of your interstitial fluids will show you how acidic your body is. The best way to do this at home is to test your morning urine.
The flood of waste that exits the body after sleeping will be from interstitial fluids. Which is then channeled into the kidneys for elimination.
A pH of below 5.5 is a critical marker. Dentists know this in the mouth. To keep your teeth and gums healthy, you should have a pH of no less than 5.6 in your mouth.
The blood is the last organ to go, your body will protect its pH at all costs. The interstitial fluids are the alkaline buffering system of the human body.
Medical doctors have not been taught about this organ, as it was only found in the 19th century. Plus, significant scientific research into the fascia wasn’t carried out until 2007, when the first International Fascia Congress began.
A Massive Discovery in Human Anatomy
If things are normal in the blood, that doesn’t mean you’re healthy. Your blood is only 10% of your bodily fluids. Therefore, testing your blood only tells part of the story.
If you want to test the interstitial fluids accurately, you have to use special non-invasive electrodes. Every cell has a vibrational frequency and can be measured on the electrodes.
Interestingly, a similar process is done on NASA astronauts, but it’s not yet in the mainstream medical community.
Research carried out by Dr. Young and his team found that the stomach produces alkalinity. Stating that “the biochemistry of the stomach is often misunderstood. The stomach is covered with “cover cells”, they draw water, salt and carbon dioxide to make sodium bicarbonate.”
His research has discovered that the stomach doesn’t actually digest food. In fact, it’s your teeth that liquidise your food. More reason to chew 32 times!
Acid reflux is the body’s deficiency in alkalinity, i.e. acidic waste buildup. Sodium bicarbonate will quickly stop acid reflux in most people.
For your body to turn food into stem cells, they need to be in an alkaline state (pH8+) in a liquid state. Why is this important? Stem cells are essential for regeneration and healing.
We are Light (Electrical) Beings
The best water to drink is ionised water, that’s been charged with electrons. Water with an electrical charge – or water that carries energy (light) effectively into your cells.
Distilled water is electrically neutral, and as such isn’t good to drink in most circumstances. The ideal water pH is 8.5-9: alkaline water.
Metabolic waste that we produce is acidic and toxic to our cells. Acidic waste is also sugar-based.
Here is an easy way to remember:
- Sugar – acidic – toxic
- Salt – alkaline – produces energy
Alkaline Water Neutralises Acids in Your Body
Acids are proton donors. Another word for protons is hydrogen atoms or H+ ions. Therefore, alkaline water neutralises the acids in your body.
You also need colloidal salts that cells can use. Salt conducts the transfer of electrons.
Low sodium (salt) levels mean that you’ll be tired and fatigued.
Sugar is a waste product of your metabolism. Think of bananas – they get sweeter as they ripen. The sugar content is increased by cellular breakdown.
You’re an electrical being that runs on electrons. When you use electricity you’ll make a waste product, lactic acid. This needs to be removed from the body quickly, otherwise it gets made into fat to protect your organs from the acids.
7 Ways to Protect Your Own Internal Environment
There are several steps that you can take to protect your inner fascia. Resulting in a more alkaline environment and promoting health.
- When you exercise or drink water, you can eliminate waste more effectively
- Drink clean filtered alkaline water
- Eat green leafy vegetables – the chlorophyll in vegetables is like liquid light
- Get more sunlight
- Try a ketogenic diet
- Choose organic where possible
- Drink green juice every morning
It’s becoming increasingly clear that toxicity breeds disease. It cannot be avoided, as your body is continually producing toxic byproducts of metabolism. However, when you understand the acid/alkaline nature of your body, you can take steps to boost your overall health.
The fascia, a net that surrounds all of your organs, works to remove acids from your body. Keep it healthy by taking the seven steps to protect your inner environment outlined above.
