Our body requires certain levels of nutrition and hydration, and if not provided, we will adapt to the conditions, but in doing so, nutritional deficits will be the consequence. While we are not directly responsible for the degradation of the food, water, and air, we are responsible to ourselves and our families to eat as our body is designed, for nutrition and hydration.
Q. What does our body require?
A. Foundational levels of nutrition, which means your body requires (not wants, not would like, but requires) certain vitamins and minerals, and certain levels of cellular hydration (or different levels of water in your 20 different cell sizes).
We are designed to receive nutrition through whole food and water both – today that’s almost impossible without whole food supplementation and clean drinking water at home.
This article is based around Americans ingesting far too many pharmaceuticals. Below you will watch a video of a pharmaceutical representative describing in detail exactly why so many of us are taking so many pharmaceuticals, and exactly how the pharmaceutical industry works. Did you know that pharmaceuticals carry the highest profit margin of any business in the country.
And did you know our body is a miracle that can work miracles once we become empowered, once we learn, and once we know which direction to point ourselves. “Point yourself in the right direction and YOU will follow” means your body inherently knows what is good for it and what is bad for it, and for the most part so do our brains, however our brain doesn’t have taste buds. Today we have to be careful to derive our nutrition from whole foods and our hydration from clean drinking water. Look at the reality of this, see what you think, and determine if you are willing to make small changes to improve the quality of your health.
Straight from Wikpedia:
Nearly one in two Americans (133 million) has a chronic medical condition of one kind or another, and chronic illnesses cause about 70% of deaths in the United States and take up about 75% of the costs each year. However, most of these people are not actually disabled, as their medical conditions do not impair normal activities. According to this report, the most common chronic conditions are high blood pressure, arthritis, respiratory diseases like emphysema, and high cholesterol.
That number is projected to increase by more than one percent per year by 2030, resulting in an estimated chronically ill population of 171 million.
With regard to children and chronic “conditions”, the University of Michigan says this:
Chronic condition is an “umbrella” term. Children with chronic illnesses may be ill or well at any given time, but they are always living with their condition. Some examples of chronic conditions include (but are not limited to):
- Asthma (the most common)
- Cerebral palsy
- Sickle cell anemia
- Cystic fibrosis
- Spina bifida
- Congenital heart problems
How common are chronic conditions?
About 15% to 18% of children in the United States live with a chronic health condition (based on the definition we’re using). It’s hard to estimate, though, because it really depends on how you define “chronic condition.”
We can put a stop to perpetuating our symptoms, conditions, and dis-ease in our body simply by becoming empowered about what our body requires and providing it. This doesn’t mean changing your entire life, it means evaluate, isolate, and exchange.
When we think of our health from a practical perspective we can evaluate ourselves in terms of what we are doing, and how that’s working for us, i.e., our performance. We also have the advantage of knowing our daily habits, symptoms, and that there is truth to what goes in is what comes out! Whether we already have healthy habits or not, the first item on the agenda is what are we doing that is causing us the most damage, and exchange it for something we will like just as much, or better, and we will feel better doing it!
As one example among many: If you can’t do without coffee, then simply cold press or cold brew your coffee (you still have hot coffee without the acid, most people love it because it tastes better and they feel better) and you will have cut the acid 70-80%, etc.
So if we have symptoms, are they chronic symptoms, and have those symptoms escalated to a diagnosis (which could be considered a medical condition either determined by symptoms or tests, not necessarily both), or have we been diagnosed with a disease which could be when one or more of our vital organs are affected. And if so, other than medication, are we addressing the inefficient performance with performance giving nutrition and rehydration?
Now what about the fact so many of us were left in the dark about things that we counted on mainstream traditional medicine to manage? Yet now we could be treating one symptom and perhaps creating another, and not really addressing or resolving the issue causing the symptom. It happens more now than ever before.
Unfortunately the “baby and the bathwater” ended up in the lap of our doctors, the brunt of degraded food, water, and air, and the havoc it has played with our health. Proof in point is that most of us can remember when we had a family doctor to help us, and perhaps granny had a prescription. Today however, everyone around us either has chronic symptoms or a diagnosis from one of many doctors they visit (on a regular basis), and even our children have a lineup of prescription medicine.
We can’t really blame the doctors, I mean really, our symptoms have gotten bigger than their practice, so now we have more specialists rather than generalists. Plus look at technology, now we know we have something before we actually know we have something, the money spent on cancer research has really only led to earlier and earlier diagnosis and $$ treatment. It’s a big business this cancer.

Nutrition: Did you know your body cannot absorb nutrition from synthetic vitamins and minerals in the same way it can from whole food supplements? Our body is designed to receive nutrition co-factored, which means vitamins and minerals must be together in a natural food form, i.e., a vegetable is naturally co-factored with the correct vitamins and minerals therefore the nutrition can be absorbed more easily. And if we all chewed a lot more, our teeth could do most of the work our digestive systems are trying to do. Lots of small changes found at www.pHBodyBalance.com.
Just to function at an adequate level our body requires certain basic nutrition including certain good oils and for us to consistently rehydrate. And that’s to maintain our processing systems and physical integrity, i.e., bones, muscles, ligaments, arteries, tissue, organs, and other body parts plus digestion, elimination, thinking, feeling, etc., in a healthy way. Our body will adapt to our environment, for example if you don’t rehydrate everyday your brain will turn off your thirst signal, however if you practice hydration (sipping consistently all day for a week), and you need rehydrating, you could become very thirsty until your cells saturate.
Two things stand out as our first steps: Rehydrating, and then addressing our nutrition. We can stop or exchange the most acidic or determental habits we have, Then, once we know what we need, we can go about reclaiming our health and the health of our children.
So bottom line is become empowered and utilize all the tips and shortcuts at pHBodyBalance.com . Learn some new strategies, some exchanges you’ll like better and that are better for you, for surviving and excelling in this world of degraded food, water, and air.
Mostly, take your health into your own hands and make some food exchanges, rehydrating and nutritional decisions, and let’s see what improvements you can make with your own health! The truth is our body is a miracle, and given the right ingredients it can heal itself. Our blood travels everywhere, if we can cleanup our blood we can cleanup our bodies, our symptoms and even our dis-ease!
