“The doctor of the future will give little medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” -- Thomas Edison

In Béchamp’s research, he was able to show scientific proof that a proper acid-alkaline balance in the body correlates to a high state of health. In direct opposition to another well known scientist – Louis Pasteur – Béchamp discovered that it wasn’t germs that caused disease, but rather the inner condition of the patient, which is regulated by pH. Béchamp concluded that just as a slight variation in body temperature away from 98.6 degrees makes you sick, a slight variance in your body’s delicate pH balance will also throw your whole system out of balance and negatively impact your health. Béchamp observed under microscopic testing that viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungus and other micro-organisms all flourished and were present in the body when the pH became acidic.

Anyone with a swimming pool who understands pH knows that when pool water becomes acidic and the pH is out of balance algae and mold will form. Farmers know that if the pH of their soil is not properly balanced seeds will not germinate and they will get inferior crop production. The same things also occur in the human body.

One of the leading indicators of a health problem is when the body’s pH has gone from being slightly alkaline to acidic. As Dr. Robert O. Young says so eloquently in his book, Sick and Tired? Reclaim Your Inner Terrain: “There is only one physiological disease – the over-acidification of the body, due primarily to an inverted way of eating and living. This over-acidification leads to the one sickness, or primary symptom – the overgrowth in the body of microorganisms, whose poisons produce the symptoms we call ‘diseases’.”
