1. Acid consumes oxygen. Alkaline increases oxygen.
2. Blood pH must be between 7.35 and 7.45 for survival.
3. When the body has enough alkaline mineral, acids are neutralized and passed in urine through the kidneys.
4. When the body does not have enough alkaline mineral, it maintains pH at the expense of using calcium from bone, or by converting acid waste into solid form. These solids are left in joints, muscle tissue, organs, arteries, and bone.
5. Acid thickens blood, causing poor circulation. This hinders delivery of oxygen, nutrition, and hydration throughout the body.
6. Poorly oxygenated and hydrated cells die, becoming acidic.
7. Go back to step 3
