PH is the unit of measurement of the degree of alkalinity or acidity of a particular liquid. In our body, the normal pH has a value of 7. Above this value it has an excess of acidity, below, instead, an excess of alkalinity. The human biochemical processes function properly only if the pH is at a stable value of 7. The pH of urine reflects the renal ability to maintain a normal concentration of hydrogen ions in plasma and extracellular fluid....

INTESTINAL HYGIENE AND ANTI-AGING

The majority of chronic degenerative diseases depends on a bad state of the intestine. In particular, the abuse of refined sugar, that favors the proliferation of intestinal bacteria, in particular, coliforms, very active in the production of enzymes, which may facilitate the transformation of pre-carcinogens elements present in food in active carcinogens. The excessive consumption of meat can cause intestinal putrefaction reactions resulting...
