Do you want to get healthy and stay healthy? What does it take to maintain health? In his ground-breaking research, world-renowned biochemist Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg said alkalinity has a key role to play in achieving better health. Warburg found that all forms of unhealthy cells are characterized by two basic conditions: high acidity and lack of oxygen. In fact, alkalinity implies higher concentration of oxygen molecules, according to Warburg. He explains that when water molecules split, “if there is an excess of H+, [it] is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.” Lack of oxygen is a very serious and dangerous environment for a cell. Even if you deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for just 48 hours, it may become damaged.
For better health, Warburg insists that cells need an alkaline environment. Since unhealthy cells cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, they cannot survive in an alkaline environment. This is why it is crucial to consume an alkaline diet with negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential).
