    Undoubtedly, themost important component tohuman healthandvitalityisoxygen. Infact,humanlifewould not bepossiblewithout it: oxygenproduces ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and without ATP our bodies wouldimmediatelyshut down. When aperson breathes, thereis anexchangeofcarbondioxide and oxygen. The oxygen, which is taken in by the body from the atmospherearoundus, is picked up by the hemoglobin in the blood and distributed to all of thebody'strillionsofcells whereit isthenused to fuel th ecellsandrelease energy ( A T P ).I naddition,t hemakeupof thehuman body islargely composed of theelementoxygen, especially factoringinthat wateriscomposedof33%j3xygen.

    It's clear, then, that optimal oxygenationofyour cellsthrough proper nutrition, fluidintake, exercise, and stress management is absolutely necessary in order to maintainyour health andcreateavitallife.

    Improper breathing is a commoncause of ill health. If I had to limit m yadvice on healthier living tojust one tip, itwould besimply to learn how tobreathecorrectly. There is no single more powerful or more simpledaily

    practice tofurtheryourhealthand well being than breathwork.A N D R E W W E I L , M . D .

    asstress,fatigue,depression, anddisease.Balancedbodychemistry an d maintainingaproperratio betweenacid andalkalinefoo ds inyour dietareo fvitalimportanceto maintaining your health.Infact,too much acidity in thebody'stissues is the causeofmany types ofhealth changes ranging fromlethargyand fat igue, toobesity, andultimatelyto much bigger health challenges anddisease.One of the highest priorit ies ofyour body is tomake sure thatth e alkal ini tythroughout your body remainsa t alevel supportingc e l l u l a rlife . A t afundamentallevel, the regulatory mechanisms such as breathing, circulation, digestion, andhormonal production balance the pH level in the body by removing acid residues frombody tissues.If the pHdeviatestoo far to theacidicor thealkalineside,cells becomepoisonedbytheirown toxicwasteanddie.

    TH E P H SCALE:Thisis ameasureof how acidico ralkalineasubstanceis. TheinitialspH standfo r"PotentialofHydrogen." Acids havepH values under 7, andalkalis havepH valuesover 7. If asubstancehas a pH va lueof 7, it isneutral-neitheracidico ralkaline.

    D i f f e r e n ttissues of thebody needtomaintaindifferen t levelsof pH tosustainlife .Thebloodandmost tissues shouldbeslightly alkaline, whereasurine,saliva,and thedigestive tract shouldbeslightly acidic.Infact,thebloodcanonly support very minorfluctuationsin its pH level and still sustain life. Most important, however, is thebody'salkaline reserve:anexcessofalkali (comprisedofelements suchassodiumbicarbonate)that is stored until it's needed to neutralize excess acid in thebody.Ifthebody becomes too acidic, ordepletesitsa lka l inereserves, then the cells begin toweakenandbreak down,andbody functionsbecome compromised.

    btity 'S feoofThe medicalfieldand onslaught of media coverage encouragepeopleto drinkmilkand eatdairy products because"Itdoesthebody good." However, thiscouldn'tbe farther f rom thetruth.TH E M ILK M Y T HDairyproducts are now in vogue with many people who fallprivyto "white mustache" celebrity endorsementsand media coverage and assumethistype of diet to be a health advantage. Many people viewmilkand other dairyproducts as ameanstoguard against degenerative diseases, suchasosteoporosis. But howmuchdo youreallyknow aboutthiswhiteliquid?Intruth,theremay bebetterwaysto get your calciumthanfromthesehigh-protein,high-fa tproducts.Recent studies on theeffectsof dairy products have shown that dairy makes a greater contribution to osteoporosis,kidneyproblems, and certain forms of cancers. In Dr. T. Colin Campbell's ProteinStudy it was found that cancerwasconsistentlypromoted byCasein,which makes up 87% ofcow'smilk protein.1Additionally, women who eatdietsrich in animalfoodsexcrete moreValcium in their urine, providing a negative calciumbalanceahigh riskfactorforosteoporosis.1 J ?

    Calcium is a mineral that the bodyneedsfor numerous functions, including building and maintaining bones,teeth, blood clotting, the transmission of nerve impulses, and the regulation of the heart's rhythm. Ninety-ninepercentof thecalciumin thehuman bodyisstoredin thebonesand teeth.Theremaining1percentisfoundinthebloodandother tissues. Thebody gets thecalciumitneedsin twoways.One isthrough eating foods thatare calcium rich, the other way the body getscalciumis by pulling itfrom thebones. Animal protein increasesthe acid load in the body which makes blood and tissues more acidic. Toneutralizetheacid,the body pullscalciumfrom thebones, thus weakening them.A recent report publishedin theJournalofPediatrics suggeststhatboosting consumptionofmilkorother dairyproductsis not necessarily thebestway toprovidetheminimalcalcium intakeof atleast400 milligrams per day.
