There is a great deal that we ourselves can do and prevent

Thus everybody should strive to avoid long-term over-acidity of the tissues in their bodies. That is an important precaution that we can take against many diseases. In this way the human immune system will also remain considerably less stressed.

Thus everybody should strive to avoid long-term over-acidity of the tissues in their bodies. That is an important precaution that we can take against many diseases. In this way the human immune system will also remain considerably less stressed. There are a few good behaviours in our everyday life that will constitute one such positive precaution, and this includes avoiding “sour” reactions, altogether or as often as possible. You see, our immune integrity includes a neuro-emotional component, which means that the strength of our immunity is influenced by the way we think and feel.

The type of diet we consume is likewise considered to be a significant precautionary and therapeutic factor in protecting us against diseases that arise from a compromised internal milieu. A natural wholefood diet rich in energy foods with plenty of fruit and vegetables to provide alkalis is well suited to this purpose. The same is true of sufficient fluid intake without “combustive values”. The best drink - of which plenty may be consumed - is fresh, pure spring water. Some ordinary and luxury foods, when consumed in the long-term, constitute a serious risk of damage to our health, maybe because they are acid-forming, as in the case of coffee, for instance. These should be avoided, or at least severely restricted.

Another thing that is indispensable if we are to keep healthy, or even to regain our health, is regular physical exertion, lasting as long as possible, through work or sport; and with no shyness about sweating. This activates cardiac and respiratory activity, which in turn promotes better micro-circulation (the circulation of blood through the finest blood vessels, the capillaries); not only does this improve the oxygen supply to the tissues, but it also increases the disposal of metabolic waste products. Essentially, and in the final analysis, illnesses often constitute an emergency vent for decayed material and acids, consequent upon dysfunction of their normal exit routes from the metabolism. Extended physical exercise also has a favourable influence on the conditions required for balanced microbial life within our bodies.

A particular role in our living and eating habits is played by the consumption of animal protein, in the shape of meat and meat products primarily, but also in the shape of eggs, milk and dairy products. Detailed studies confirm that, even in the case of ongoing slight excess consumption of animal proteins, the micro-organisms present in the body, such as Mucor and Aspergillus, feed on these and thus begin their deleterious upward evolution. Not only that, but any excess of animal proteins, when metabolised in the body, will tip the acid-alkaline balance further in the “acid” direction. As well as this, in the long-term, as a result of this excess, dangerous deposits of protein will form, for instance on the walls of the hair-like vessels in the tissues, the consequence being increasing destruction of the micro-circulation. The research of Professors G. Enderlein and L. Wendt - independently of each other - have supplied us with significant findings on this subject. Just as proper treatment takes these circumstances into account, the same applies in the case of correct precautions to be taken in respect of our diet.
