Increasing Your Alkalinity
(Referenced in Fantastic Voyage-Chapter4, page 47)
We have discussed how the body’s natural metabolic processes create acidic waste products, and, for optimal health, you need to restore your alkaline reserves. An effective way to do this is by drinking alkaline water, produced by a water alkalinizing machine This device, which looks like a coffee percolator, contains an electrical ionization system to split water into its acidic and alkaline portions. The alkaline water should be used for drinking and food preparation. The water’s alkalinity can be adjusted, and you should increase the level gradually to a pH between 9.5 and 10, which will provide a powerful detoxification treatment. We recommend that you drink 8 to 10 glasses per day of this alkaline water. It is one of the simplest and most powerful things you can do to combat a wide range of disease processes. The acidic water produced by the alkaline water machine from a separate outlet need not go to waste—it’s perfect for cleansing your skin. It’s also ideal to use for watering plants, which thrive in an acidic environment.
Excellent water alkalinizing devices (as well as a line of far infrared saunas, excellent for detoxification) are available thru High Tech Health.
Certain teas have alkalinizing effects on the body too.
While most sweeteners have negative
features, stevia is a natural sweetener that is even
good for you. Stevia is a plant indigenous to South
America and is a natural food supplement that is 30
to 100 times sweeter than table sugar. It has been valued
for its medicinal effects and natural sweetness in Paraguay
for 1,500 years. It has been used similarly in Japan
for the last 2 decades and has recently become popular
in the United States as an all-natural, healthy sweetener.
Ray & Terry prefer the stevia blend with maltodextrin, available in association with NuNaturalsTM

Phosphatidylcholine (PtC) is a major component of your cell membranes. As you age, the level of PtC in the cell wall diminishes, which is an important aging process. By supplementing with PtC, you can stop and even reverse this process. Research indicates that PtC can stimulate “reverse cholesterol transport,” that is, removal of cholesterol from artery plaque. When taking oral PtC supplements, it is important to use one that is at least 99% pure PC. Many supplements labeled “phosphatidylcholine” are actually only about 30% PC. Food-grade lecithin (not the commercial version) contains PtC but only about 20 to 25% of lecithin is PtC. A source for pure PtC can be purchased at RayandTerry's.com.
Sleep apnea is a common condition
in which the mouth opens widely during sleep, causing
a temporary blockage of air. A person undergoing a sleep
apnea event will appear to be gagging. This causes a
temporary decline in available oxygen. People with moderate
to severe sleep apnea may have dozens to hundreds of
such apnea events each night. This condition, which
is also found in many patients h high levels of snoring,
can be diagnosed in a sleep clinic. There are also home
tests that use a finger-mounted electronic probe to
monitor blood oxygen levels. Most people who suffer
from sleep apnea are unaware of the problem.
Air tubes used for cell phones keep
potentially harmful radiation away from your head. Sound
is delivered to the ear through an air-filled wireless tube,
replacing the wire of a regular headset. We recommend the
Block EMF air tube, available at http://www.blockemf.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=4858.
