The Truth About Ionized Water and Stomach Acid

by Dr. Bob McCauley, ND

A question commonly asked about Ionized Water is how can the alkalinity of Ionized Water survive stomach acid.  Digestive enzymes and stomach acid, hydrochloric acid (HCL), are produced by the body as we chew our food.  Once we stop eating, the HCL dissipates in the stomach and no more should be produced until the next time we eat.

Many people are under the mistaken notion that the pH of the human stomach is always at a pH of 2.5 – 3.0.  In fact, when we are not eating the pH of the stomach should be around pH 4.0 – 5.0.  Temporarily changing the pH of the stomach to pH 6.0 or higher is not harmful to the body.

If we assume that drinking ionized water will raise the pH of the stomach higher than it should be or that Ionized Water will be neutralized by our stomach acid, then we must also assume that many alkaline foods that we eat will do the same thing.  A lot of fruit tends to have a high pH, therefore it is not uncommon for the stomach to have alkaline foods introduced into it.  What is important to consider is the overall effect of foods and other substances that we put into the body.  If our diet is mainly comprised of acid foods such as fried foods, meat, processed foods, junk foods, fast foods, etc. our body will turn acidic over time.  On the other hand, if we put primarily alkaline substances in our body then our body will become more alkaline.  All disease thrives in an acid environment in the body and does not thrive in a neutral pH close to 7.0.

The most accurate urine pH reading may be measured first thing in the morning, however, body pH on any given day can be high or low for any number of reasons.  For an accurate profile of body pH it is best taken each morning for several days, weeks and then months to get a moving average.  Depending on how alkaline your diet is, consistently drinking a sufficient amount of Ionized Water each day will cause the pH of the body to become more alkaline and closer to neutral where it belongs.

ProFerment

By Dr. Bob McCauley, ND

A proliferation of harmful bacteria in the gut can rob your body of the essential nutrients it needs by consuming those nutrients that your body would normally absorb. Probiotics are the friendly bacteria that help keep the intestines healthy and assist in digestion and nutrient absorption. ProFerment is a unique blend of acidophilus (DE111) and a prebiotic PreforPro. In clinical studies, DE111 has been shown to drive out unwanted bacterial pathogens. ProFerment contains PreforPro which has been shown in more than 20 clinical studies to accelerate the growth by at least 10 fold of many types of probiotic species.

Studies also showed that ProFerment significantly decrease in both Total and LDL cholesterol in the body. All disease derives from our diet and are first born in the digestive tract.

The probiotic benefits of DE-111 Bacillus subtilis for digestive and immune health include:

  • Crowds out bacterial pathogens and maintains healthy gut flora
  • Supports the normal immune reaction of intestinal cells
  • Communicates with intestinal cells to maintain the gut barrier’s function
  • Can persist in the GI tract, increase its numbers and then re-sporulate.

In in vitro tests under physiological conditions, PreforPro has been shown to accelerate the growth of a broad spectrum of probiotic species, including:

  • B. bifidum
  • B. breve
  • B. animalis
  • B. longum
  • L. acidophilus
  • L. paracasei
  • L. casei
  • L. rhamnosus
  • Lc. lactis
  • B. subtilis

Functions in Both Small and Large Intestine

Figures 1 & 2 show the difference in growth rate of beneficial Bacillus subtilis and Lactococcus lactis bacteria after the introduction of undesirable E.coli bacteria.

B. subtilis growth after 5 hours under physiological conditions, competing with E. coli

Lactococcus lactis growth after 5 hours under physiological conditions, competing with E. coli

Human Clinical Study

In a human clinical study, PreforPro was shown to influence the microbial population of the gut, while also producing positive effects on cholesterol and immune response. Participants were administered one 15mg PreforPro capsule daily. When compared to the placebo group, results of the study indicated:

  • PreforPro substantially enhanced the growth of beneficial bacteria, including Bifidobacterium animalis, Lactobacillus delbrueckii and Lactobacillus lactococcus.
  • A significant decrease in LDL cholesterol was observed in the total study population, as well as a trend toward decreased total cholesterol.
  • Participants with excess lipids in the blood showed both clinically and statistically relevant decreases in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol.
  • A significant decrease in the allergy-inducing interleukin 4 (IL-4) cytokine

Dissolve: BioActive Silcate

By Dr. Bob McCauley, ND

This is a truly unique product.  I have never really seen anything like it.  Silcon is a mineral required by the body.  Dissolve – BioActive Silicate (DBAS) is the biologically active crystalline form of silicon, an essential mineral required for human growth, including hair, bone and tendon formation. DBAS is a unique form of silicon that promotes joint flexibility, tissue repair, skin health and wrinkle prevention. Its anti-microbial qualities attack biofilm and nano-bacterial growth within the body. DBAS helps displace unwanted and unneeded substances – Toxins – from the body, while at the same time helping to Alkalize it.

 

Dosage
Dilute 5 – 9 drops of DBAS per 6 ounces of purified water (distilled or reverse osmosis) per day. Do not exceed 30 drops per day. Do not directly consume the concentrate. Always dilute with water, purified water if possible. Use same dilution topically for pimples, cuts, scrapes or sunburn.

What is a naturopathic doctor?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

What is a naturopathic doctor?

My Response:

A naturopathic doctor is a doctor who tells you get healthy naturally. A medical doctor pretends to know what to tell you about how to be health, but other than offering you pills, the medical doctor always reverts back to “diet and exercise”, which they nothing about. Medical doctors do not learn that in medical school so where do they learn about “diet and exercise”? The same place as anyone, by reading and studying about health. And yet they have that most important endorsement of them all: public perception.
