Pathogenic Microorganism preferring an Alkaline Environment
- Staphylococcus 7.4 – alkaline
- Streptococcus 7.4 to 7.6 – alkaline
- Pneumococcus 7.6 to 7.8 – alkaline
- H. Influenza 7.8 – alkaline
- Meningococcus 7.4 to 7.6 – alkaline
- Gonococcus Corymbacterium diptheriae 7.2 – alkaline
- B. abortus 7.2 to 7.4 – alkaline
- B. tularemae 6.8 to 7.3 – alkaline
- Clostridium tetani 7.0 to 7.6 – alkaline
It is apparent, that microorganisms harmful to the human body grow in an alkaline environment. This is particularly interesting in the light of the evidence that human beings have an instinct, which leads them to seek an acid intake.
In the light of the above evidence, it seems reasonable to suspect that pathogenic bacteria, which are harmful to the body, are in the world for another purpose than to cause sickness in human beings. Nature has spread acid vegetation about with a lavish hand apparently to prevent infestation of the body with pathogenic microorganisms, turning into infection of the body by these same microorganisms. Instinctually leading animals and humans to seek acid vegetation and acid liquids as protection.
Oral | Periodontal Health
Some of the pathogens found in root canals and cavitations are considered normal flora for the oral cavity. They are foreign invaders in the gut or blood stream. The question arises – how can normal oral flora be pathological? Simple. Alteration in gene expression. The oral cavity has a fluctuating pH of:
- 6 – 6.8 exposure to fermentable carbohydrates
- Kills Alkaline-loving-gingivitis causing bacteria
- 9-7.1 neutral mouth
- 7.2 – 7.4 smelling food, when hungry
- Kills Acid-loving-cavity causing bacteria
Blood has a pH of 7.35. When bacteria pass from the oral cavity into the blood stream, genes are turned on as the pH becomes more alkaline rising above 7.0. This stimulates harmless bacteria to now produce pathogenic toxins in the blood circulating throughout your body.
Stomach acid produced in adequate quantities first responsibility is to kill Alkaline-loving bacteria. Then next would involve the chemical digestion of food. The third would be to stimulate the release of the very alkaline bile and pancreas juices causing a alkaline shift in the digestive chemistry, which kills the Acid-loving bacteria and to further facilitate the breakdown and absorption of nutrients. This flip-flop of digestive chemistry keeps the number of bacteria low in the Small Intestine preventing bacterial overgrowth.
Over the Counter and Prescription advertisements have done a good job in convincing us that the stomach over-produces stomach acid. When in reality the opposite is true. Without stomach acid to stimulate their release, pancreatic enzyme make their way into the arteries surrounding the esophagus causing the burning associated with the so-called “Acid-Reflux”.
With poor quantities of stomach acid, limited quantities of bile and pancreas juices are release. This lack of digestive chemistry production and release allows bacteria to overgrow in the small intestine. Oral bacteria swallowed with food unmolested set up their prefered environment in the small intestine. The Alkaline-loving bacteria grow unchecked hacking into the immune system and the controls for the production of digestive chemistry for their benefit. Not Yours!
Chewing gum or ‘Alkalizing’ the body can cause white hat bacteria to put on black hats causing damage to your body. Have you ever had a friend or cousin, where every time you got together you caused mischief? The same thing happens in your gut. Black Hat bacteria change the behavior of White Hat bacteria the same way gang members change the behavior of the neighborhood they occupy. The “good” bacteria that should NOT be in the small intestine, now have a hospitable environment closer to the food supply.
You may have bought into the “Alkaline is Healthy” Social Media Medicine meme. After reading the information above, do still think it is such a good idea?
