If your house is on fire, who do you call to help? The fire department. Well, so does your body. That’s right, your body has its own personal fire department. If it didn’t, most of you would be dead! So, if your insides are on fire (inflammation), your body has three separate fire departments it can call on:
Just like that banged knee, your body will create water to put out a fire in your body. The medical establishment calls this edema. Have you ever known someone to say, “I shouldn’t have eaten that. I’m so bloated now.” If you know someone that has edema, you should instantly know, they’re on fire!
That’s right, cholesterol is alkaline. The body will plaque it only if you are suffering from inflammation. Of course when cholesterol plaques it will lead to what the medical establishment calls “heart disease.” But your body doesn’t know that, the body just knows it needs to put out your fire, or you will die.
Calcium is on the alkaline side of chemistry. In fact, when you have a tummy ache, what do most Americans do? They take an antacid. Check the ingredients and you will find calcium. If you’re on fire, your body is going to steal calcium from your connective tissues and bones to buffer the acids. This is going to lead to weak bones, poor teeth, brittle nails, and of course, potentially osteoporosis. This is robbing Peter to pay Paul.
