From the November 2005 Idaho Observer:

Fear no bugs since thou understandeth pH

By The Idaho Observer

"The germ is nothing. The soil is everything."

~Louis Pasteur

The key to health is maintaining a body pH of 7.0 to 7.5—with the understanding that no pathogens known to man are capable of existing, much less reproducing, in a pH of 7.5-8.0. So, spending a few dollars to become an "expert" acid/alkaline balancer now will, over the course of a lifetime of drugs and surgeries, lost work time and lost quality of life, provide a greater return than any investment you have ever made. Secondly, though more expensively, we present The Alkalizer. This is a truly remarkable machine. It divides systemically poisonous fluoridated and chlorinated tap water into clean, properly ionized and alkalinized water that hydrates your body, allowing nutrients into your cells and aiding in the elimination of cellular waste products and acidic ion water for external purposes.

If you understand the acid/alkaline balance as it relates to illness and health, you will no longer have any fear of bird flu, cancer, diabetes, heart disease or any other acute or chronic illness. The truth is that the appearance of disease and the severity of disease symptoms is totally dependent upon the general health of the host. The chief indicator of general health is pH—high pH means your cells are being oxygenated and they are able to take in nutrients, excrete waste, perform their intended functional and are not vulnerable to infection; low pH means your cells are being deprived of oxygen, are not properly taking in nutrients or efficiently excreting waste, are not able to perform their intended function and are vulnerable to infection.

It is an axiom of life that pathogens (viruses, fungi, bacteria) do not "attack" live, healthy cells and tissue. We have been taught to believe that germs cause disease, when the truth is that dis-ease causes germs. According to Dr. John Christopher, the father of modern herbology, "The germ is the scavenger that lives on toxins, mucous, poisons and filth. They are nature’s perfect garbage men. We should work with them, not against them. With moist incubation they multiply faster and faster. To live they must eat and the only thing they can consume is the filth of the body. When all the garbage is cleaned up, they leave because they have nothing more to live on."


The best little book we have ever seen on the subject of pH was published by the Health Crusador Greg Ciola with Gary Tunsky, ND. At $12.95 it will be the best investment in health you've ever made. Call Crusador Enterprises at 1-800-593-6273, or check them out on the web at




Tip of the month

Before becoming a dissident journalist a decade ago, I was a carpet and upholstery cleaner. Ask any such professional worth his salt and he will tell you that the key to successful stain removal is understanding pH. First, identify whether a stain was caused by an acid or alkaline substance (wine and spaghetti sauce, for instance, are "acid"). Then choose an alkaline to bring the stained area back to neutral pH (soda water or baking soda dissolved in water, for instance, are "alkaline"). Then wash the area like you normally would and, "voila!" the stain will lift away.

Caveat: Effective spotting does take practice and may take a couple of tries before a stain lifts out entirely and some fabrics are more resilient than others. Also remember that heat sets stains, so do not use hot water or a dryer on spotted fabric until you are certain a stain is as cleaned up as it will get.

The point of this illustration is to help people remove stains while proving that the fabric of all life is governed by the acid/alkaline balance.
