Alkalizing the body is probably the best thing that a person can do to ensure good health and well being. There is a direct relationship between a person’s pH and the oxygen content of his blood, and a tiny change in pH can have dramatic effects upon a person’s oxygen intake. An alkaline body pH will prevent diseases, and will¬†cure¬†existing ones by exponentially boosting a body’s oxygen intake. As a general rule, pathogens and cancers cannot survive in an oxygen-rich, alkaline environment.
