What in the Cell is going on? The Battle is over pH

• IHSite.Com Dr. Gary Tunsky
By Dr. Gary Tunsky
As you quietly read these words, a whirl of activity is taking place in every cell of your body. Every second, unseen, unnoticed, millions of new cells are reborn in your body’s ceaseless program of self-generation. Since cells are the bricks and mortar from which all living tissue and organs are made, to understand
degenerative and metabolic disease you must become familiar with the miniature world of the cell and how they are able to perform baffling chemical
transformations producing infinitely complex protei
ns, vitamins, hormones, neurotransmitters, growth factors, enzymes and metabolic energy called ATP.
A healthy body is determined by the health of each
of its single cells. All disease originates at the cellular level and not at the organ or system level. Healthy cells create healthy tissues. Healthy tissues create healthy organs like the heart and lungs. Healthy organs create healthy systems like the endocrine system or the immune system and healthy systems make up a healthy body.
In the complex world of 75 trillion cells that make
up your nation body, you are the President (the brain) that delegates the police force that protects and shields the cellular citizens from attack by foreign enemies; the cellular citizen’s work performance, transportation system, medical care, communication, food and water, and methods of toxic waste and trash removal.

This article is for the unhealthy eater to apply to himself/herself. It is not for the healthy eater to use to change his/her eating habits.

Search for lists of acidic and alkaline foods. A simple listing can be found at

Most fruits in their natural state are acidic. Most veggies are alkaline. But if you pickle vegetables, they become acidic. Canning and processing often change the pH of foods.

The point is, don't stop eating fruit because you want to avoid acid. You need a variety of acidic and alkaline foods for your metabolism to exercise itself, constantly swinging from alkaline to acidic and back again, sometimes many times per second. Just as you tire yourself out with exercise to physically build and maintain muscle, so your body needs to constantly jump back and forth between acidic and alkaline to maintain healthful cellular strength.

A greatly over-alkaline body is just as dead as a greatly over-acidic body.
