A/G Ratio: is the ratio of albumin to globulins.

Overview

The A/G Ratio is an antiquated test that measures the ratio between albumin and globulins in the blood. It is one of a very few test numbers I pay any attention to.

I use it as a measure of where someone is at between birth and death; meaning, where you are on the curve.  It is NOT to be used for predicting the future, but to establish where you are at.

Range is 1.0 – 2.32 and the higher the number, the better. It measures the amount of albumin and globulin that leaked past the kidney nephrons into the urine. It is a good indicator of the condition of renal glands (kidneys) which loose efficiency with age.

You must specifically REQUEST this test if you want it included on a blood panel, and prepare for justification with your practitioner because he will not know this one and will ignore your request.  Remember, the patient know NOTHING!

Another useful test is called: CRP which stands for C-Reactive Protein which measures LOW-GRADE inflammation in the body’s terrain.  This test is common; however, few practitioners seem to know what to make of it unless the numbers are extremely high.

Ideally, you want a CRP reading of ZERO as in -0-. Anything is too much. Normal range is .5 – 10. If you suffer in any way, know that your CRP is elevated because it is a measure of inflammation and you can’t have pain or suffering unless you have inflammation. A reading of 1.0 is extremely high and should not be ignored.

Another useful measure of your terrain system is pH of urine.  See Acidity/Alkalinity in Glossary link below for a full discussion of terrain pH.

Lastly, a VERY IMPORTANT test is your blood’s ferritin level which is an indirect measure of iron STORED in your blood.  Approximately 80% of iron is stored in blood.  See Special Insights, How Iron Toxicity Affects Your Health by clicking hyperlink.

Common measures of blood pressure and pulse reflect systemic stress and hormonal imbalance between insulin and leptin.  Read Special Insights, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life by clicking hyperlink.

Personally, I ignore most medical tests because the standard answer is never, WHY?  Instead, all you hear is: take the purple pill 3x/day.  They don’t have a clue WHY you supposedly have the so-called, medical condition.

Your job is take care of yourself and steer clear of the sick-care system.  Once they instill you with fear and uncertainty, they own you!

Acid (acidity); alkaline (alkalinity)

Please select from the menu above

Anecdotal observations by John Thomas

Acid: Having a pH value below 7.0 on the pH scale of 0-14; the opposite of alkaline.  Not the same as acidity.

Acidity: refers to the amount of acid waste stored in the tissues and circulating in body fluids [urine, saliva and lymph]; a condition that manifests in the face of insufficient bicarbonate reserves needed for de-acidification of acids in the system; the exact opposite of alkalinity.

Acidity is not pH and should not be confused with pH.  Acidity refers to total acid waste load that burden body tissues and fluids.  The more acid waste in the body, the higher acidity.

Alkaline: Having a pH value above 7.0 on the pH scale of 0-14; the opposite of acid.  Not the same as alkalinity.

Alkalinity: the exact opposite of acidity; a condition where bicarbonates are in sufficient supply and are available to offset and neutralize acid wastes in the body’s terrain.

Alkalinity is not pH.  Alkalinity refers to the body’s ability to buffer [neutralize] acid waste and maintain pH from body reserves of bicarbonate [reserve capacity.]

Acid and alkaline are chemistry terms. In alternative medicine and health circles, the term alkaline is loosely and wrongly used to infer, alkalinity.  While it is true that healthy bodies have an alkaline pH [above 7.0] and sick bodies have an acidic pH [below 7.0],  neither is true.

pH is a INDICATOR of buffer capacity [bicarbonate reserves.]  pH does NOT measure buffer reserves, pH measures pH, not alkalinity or acidity.  They are NOT THE SAME!

See Special Insights, Cancer, Acidity, Fermentation & pH in the Archive link above/below.

Acid vs. Alkaline Body

Sickness and disease manifest in bodies containing excess waste [waste is acidic].  Waste is the substrate [food supply] for growth of fungus and yeast.

Yeast produces acid waste byproducts that causes the body to grow ever more acidic.

For example, cancer is a condition of high acidity, low bicarbonate reserves and extreme toxicity from acid waste accumulation due to FERMENTATION of glucose sugars, as opposed to complete burning of glucose during glycolysis. Acidic waste is corrosive in nature. Waste degrades body tissues and damps vital organ function.

A waste filled body is a toxic environment favoring proliferation of parasites and pathogenic microbes. A marginally sick body (sub-clinically sick) has a urine pH in the range of 5-6 range, where bodies suffering from serious, degenerative dis-ease has a urine pH below 5.0 and if severe, below pH 4.0.

The idea that healthy bodies are alkaline is erroneous, even though this idea is popularly believed by alternative practitioners and their patients.  To understand this statement, review the word definitions at the beginning of this discussion.

Understanding the Puzzle

The key to understanding the health and alkalinity vs. disease and acidity puzzle must be understood in terms of TISSUE waste load levels and FLUID waste load levels.

Tissue waste levels are measured by their shadows. The shadows are called symptoms. Some symptoms can be measured by medical tests that lead to the status of a clinical condition. Subtle, shadowy symptoms are are sub-clinical.

Medical tests do not measure early sub-clinical symptoms of trouble in the making.

If you are paying attention and know what to look and watch for, you will discover a fantastic early warning system already built into your body.

Urine pH is a good indicator of waste already resident in the system.  For example, body odor is a classic symptom of trouble in the making. So is bad breath and subtle changes in skin and gums. Snoring, vision changes and compromised hearing are some more examples.

The Bio-electric Age Test in Chapter three of my book, Young Again! provides a comprehensive list of signs and symptoms to look for.

Early, subtle symptoms are unlike clinical measurements of: blood, hormones, albumin, etc.  Other subtle symptoms are: arthritis, fibromyalgia, eczema and gout, all of which scream acid waste overload.

Fluid waste levels are best gauged by measuring urine pH.  Blood is not a practical measure and saliva is less accurate. Urine is an easy and useful tool.

Readers should acquaint themselves wit the TERRAIN pH PROTOCOL to better understand the connection between pH and acidity/alkalinity.

Often, people LOADED with non circulating tissue-bound waste, urine test within acceptable ranges and have few health issues. This is not uncommon.

BUT, when circulating waste levels and tissue waste levels overloads the body’s ability to cope, formerly healthy people either develop non life threatening health issues or they suddenly manifest serious, life threatening signs and symptoms overnight.

Sub-clinically sick people never see it coming because they ignored the subtle changes going on under the surface.  Good health is good until it isn’t.

pH must be understood in terms of tissue load levels, circulation levels and the body’s ability to manage stress and inflammation associated with excess body waste and the pre-diabetic state.

People with, so-called, pH balanced systems are very often anything but healthy which explains why many health oriented people age poorly and die prematurely even though they lived a healthy lifestyle.

Acceptable pH Range

Healthy bodies maintain urine pH of 6.8 – 7.2.  Anything below 7.0 indicates excess acids in the system and the need to introduce bicarbonate to neutralize the acids.

pH 6.8 is easy to maintain except during periods of high stress when urine pH turns more acidic, or during periods of heavy cleansing and waste release from tissues that cause pH to become more acidic from waste flooding the system.

pH rises and falls throughout the day.

Such is the ongoing cycle of waste management.  Be sure and STUDY the following information.  Here is the link http://www.youngagainclub.com/terrain-ph-protocol.html

The lymphatic system is responsible for waste management and circulation of extracellular waste OUT of the tissue spaces; this is NOT the responsibility of the blood circulatory system.

Blood carries oxygen and nutrients into the tissues and carbon dioxide out.  Notice both of these are gases. The gateways OUT OF THE BODY for soluble acidic waste removal are the liver (90%) and the kidneys (10%).

FYI:  pH 6.0 is ten times LESS ACID than pH 5.0, but neither pH is alkaline; one is simply less acid that the other.

Less acid is always desirable. This is a vitally important concept to understand if you wish to enjoy perpetually enjoy good health and not experience premature aging or early death.

Solutions

De-acidification of the body is an ongoing process. Every day, waste is produced and if it is not released from the system it accumulates in the tissues, organs and joints.

The absolute best and fastest way to remove accumulated structural waste from the body is by following the Tissue & Liver Protocol. You can read about it, here. Consider it your GET OUT OF JAIL CARD!

The Terrain pH Protocol should be practiced each and every day, forever, and you use pH test strips and guidance from YoungAgainClub to gauge decisions about pH.

The simplest daily routine you can adopt is the Enema Protocol.  Read about it here.

pH, Aging & Alkaline Water

Acidification of the body is a progressive process that takes place over one’s entire lifespan, but accelerates around age 244, again at age 35 and in the mid forties.

Drinking alkaline water and eating foods that are so-called alkaline forming has little to do with making the body more alkaline.  The health industry is overrun with half-baked experts who espouse all kinds of crackpot ideas.

Comments

Bad food, junk food and non-food, along with poor digestion, drive acid waste overload and slow deterioration of the liver and kidneys plus progressive, mitochondrial dysfunction.

Acid Reflux (GERD)

Anecdotal Observations by John Thomas

Go to Home Page

Acid Reflux [GERD]: a chronic symptom of mucosal damage caused by stomach acid in the esophagus. Inability to process food and regurgitation of food and stomach acid up into the esophagus damaging the mucous membranes.

Acid reflux is also known by the acronym, GERD which stands for: gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Acid reflux is a symptomatic condition, not a disease despite it title.  It is often (and wrongly) described as: heartburn and indigestion.

Acid reflux is a condition of defective physiology (poor function) CAUSED BY fungal takeover of the intestinal tract i.e. fungi sink their roots [called hypha] into the gut wall producing potent mycotoxins that yield the reflux, symptom.

GERD is easily avoided.  Reversal of the condition requires following the Mold & Fungus Protocol [click link].

Contrary to medical folklore, acid reflux has little or nothing to do with explanations  commonly provided by practitioners and so-called, experts.

Stomach acidity is NOT the cause of acid reflux.

If you wish help or guidance, email or click here.

What Causes Acid Reflux

When food cannot flow from the stomach into the intestine as intended, it has no place to go but up the esophagus, particularly at night when people assume normal sleep position.

Acid reflux is generally worse at night and after meals because food cannot exit the stomach and pass into the intestine due to a backed-up intestinal tract, be it from failure to move food along or stress and tension of the gut wall from inflammation caused by fungi and their mycotoxins.

The bowel should empty at least three times a day, in line with eating three times a day.  The ratio should be 1:1; meaning one movement for each meal.

A meal to bowel ratio of less than 1:1 is constipation!  Sluggish bowel is constipation

Please note, bowel function diminishes as people age, and with it comes acid reflux and hiatal hernia.  Seldom do these conditions manifest in young people and people under age 35. [Both conditions are symptomatic of aging and deterioration.  Do not ignore them!]

Constipation is symptomatic of fungal infestation, poor diet, poor digestion, intake of sugar/sweets, failure to drink enough water and a sick, inflamed liver/gallbladder. Sluggish bowel is heavily influenced by resistance to the regulatory hormones: insulin and leptin (discussed below).

Hiatal Hernia

Hiatal hernia is common among people who suffer acid reflux, and although they are very different issues, they have common origins.

Hiatal hernia is the product of 20 feet of backed-up intestine exerting upward pressure against the diaphragm [the flat, sheet-like muscle, separating the thoracic cavity (chest) from the peritoneal cavity (belly) containing the stomach, small intestine, gut, pancreas, colon, liver and spleen.

Continuous pressure against the diaphragm from a backed-up intestinal tract and bowel causes hiatal hernia, a condition where the diaphragm surrounding the esophagus pulls away allowing the stomach to protrude up into the thoracic cavity (chest) where it does not belong.

Surgery for hiatal hernia is a very bad idea and does not work due to surgical inability to close the opening in the diaphragm around the esophagus by any manner that will hold up.

The diaphragm is made of connective tissue (muscle) and as people age, the connective tissues of the body fail to maintain and regenerate.  It is the inability to regenerate that prevents successful surgical intervention for hiatal hernia.  Behind tissue breakdown is INFLAMMATION caused by fungus and their mycotoxins.

In other words, loss of integrity of connective tissue allows hiatal hernia to occur in the first place.  It seldom occurs in young people, but is common after age 35, when the body begins to degenerate. Worse, continued upward pressure from a backed-up bowel [for any number of reasons] causes hiatal hernia to reoccur.

The issues behind the original hernia must be addressed or the problem will perpetuate.  Better to remove the pressure and allow the body to repair as best it can, rather than suffer botched surgical, intervention.

The longer the acid reflux and hiatal hernia are ignored, the uglier these conditions become, so deal with them by learning to care for yourself BEFORE either condition occurs.

Hiatal hernia produces pain and discomfort, but, acid reflux leads to esophageal cancer because of damage to the delicate mucous membranes of the esophagus.

Factors That Contribute to Acid Reflux

If the body is trained to release the bowels three times a day, acid reflux (and hiatal hernia) does not occur. To repeat, SLUGGISH bowel is the issue and the training tool is the Enema Protocol. You can read about it here.

Contrary to medical myth, reduction of stomach acid levels is a foolish and misguided idea that distracts and confuses patients suffering from acid reflux.  Practitioners misinform patients by telling them the problem is stomach acidity when it is not! Doing so is a disservice, at best and an outright lie, at worst.

Without high stomach acid levels, the patient cannot digest dietary proteins leading to poor nutrition and further deterioration of the connective tissues of the entire body.  In other words, low stomach acid levels progressively causes the body to degenerate, and worse!

Fungus infestation, sluggish bowel, incomplete digestion, intake of sugar/sweets, hormonal resistance and poor diet lead to hundreds of health issues! For instance, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis, irritable bowel and colitis are problematic, but colon cancer, Crohn’s and celiac are downright ugly and all of them are avoidable!

Acid reflux is the side-effect of fungus invasion, poor lifestyle and faulty metabolism linked to imbalances of the regulatory hormones leptin, insulin, adrenaline, cortisol and glucagon.

See Special Insights, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life for more details on this important subject.

The Autoimmune Attack Cycle and Sugar/Alcohol Cycle also play important roles in bringing about autoimmune responses, like eczema and psoriasis to outright autoimmune attacks, like asthma and fibromyalgia,  where the body attacks itself.

See, Inflammation & Your Future [Special Edition!] and The Sense Of, Well-being! Examples & Notes From The Field.

Solutions for Acid Reflux

The wise individual practices the Enema Protocol daily to train the body to release waste in timely fashion, keyed to meals.

The Tissue & Liver Protocol is everyone’s GET OUT OF JAIL CARD because it allows a person to undo the damage imposed by poor lifestyle choices over many years.  Us it to speed the aging reversal process and lift years of abuse from overloaded tissues and joints.

Know, if you are over 35 years of age, you have much catching up to do and the older you are, the bigger the challenge. Time is of essence!

Know, if you help your body, it will automatically begin repairing itself, and at the same time, stop ongoing deterioration of organs and tissues.

Know, after age 35 digestive capacity drops each year.  By age 45 and beyond it is very to use Young Again Club digestive supports to reignite digestive capability.

Know, common digestive enzymes are not sufficiently strong or specific enough to get the job done.  Young Again Club products are like non other; those who use them notice the difference immediately.

Comments on Acid Reflux

Esophageal and colon cancer are avoidable. Think of cancer as a self-imposed condition where the body defaults into a state of degeneration.  Cancer is not a dis-ease and it has nothing to do with your genes and DNA.

Colon polyps are not colon cancer, and removing them presents HUGE RISKS!  Better to address why you have them or never develop them in the first place.  See Colonoscopy (polyps) here.

The body can reverse most conditions and heal itself if given the opportunity.  Only YOU can provide the opportunity!

Restoration of the body’s terrain is a Young Again Club concept.

Acne: a broad term applied to conditions of the skin manifesting as pimples and eruptions on the face, back and arms.  A common condition in teens that is wrongly blamed on puberty.

No discussion of skin issues would be complete without reference to systemic mold/fungus infection of the intestinal gut wall, and the effects that mold mycotoxins play on all skin related issues from skin cancer to acne, eczema and psoriasis.

For further information on mold and yeast related issues, read Special Insights, Cause Unknown! in the Archive Link above; and Molds & Fungus Protocol in the Protocols link above.

Overview

Acne, eczema and psoriasis are first cousins of each other and all of them are driven by an inflamed intestinal gut wall, a poorly functioning liver, leaky gut, bad diet, poor digestion and bowel issues.  These conditions are confirmation of hormonal resistance to leptin, insulin, adrenaline and glucagon.  See Change Your Food Habits below.

The body stores toxic waste in the fatty tissues below the skin and when the terrain becomes unbalanced or stressed out, waste erupts from the skin in the form of redness, sloughing and weeping and pimples.

Skin conditions are CLASSIC terrain issues and should be address accordingly.  When they appear, know the liver is functioning poorly.  They always involve the Autoimmune Attack Cycle and the Sugar/Alcohol Cycle by clicking hyperlinks.

Carbohydrate dependence is a given in all conditions of the skin, including skin cancers. See Special Insights, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life by clicking hyperlink.

Adrenal Glands (Adrenals)

Please select from the menu above

Return to Glossary
Go to Programs & Protocols

Adrenals: are hormone producing glands located on the top of each kidney and are responsible for production of adrenaline and cortisol.

Overview

From the Young Again perspective, the adrenals are ‘coping glands’ that are responsible for dealing with stress and anxiety; they are closely linked to leptin and insulin resistance and Factor-X.

The adrenals affect the ability to get a good nights rest; and they influence the thyroid gland and how it functions. The adrenals greatly affect energy and fatigue levels.

Women handle stress differently than men; they internalize stress which takes its toll on their systems affecting female hormone production and female health.

Falling hair, loss of eyebrows, and to some extent, graying hair, particularly in females, is a sign of adrenal stress.  Generally, it takes several weeks just to ‘settle’ people systems when their adrenals are exhausted.

Avoidance of sweets is critical to the process; deep sleep is mandatory.  Use of Pu is advised.

The adrenal glands are heavily influenced by the bowels, bowel activity and liver function.

For women who are having hormonal difficulties, particularly menopausal and post menopausal issues, it is important to understand that both the adrenals and thyroid influence hormonal balance, sweats, hot flashes and sleep.

It should be noted, that insulin and leptin resistance is a CORE factor in adrenal and thyroid issues; so much so, that if resistance issues are not resolved, hypothyroid, obesity, premature aging and systemic inflammation, (particularly in women) can be expected.

Lastly, there is STRONG evidence that cognitive issues from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s to vascular dimentia, brain fog, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s and autism are directly related to low-grade inflammation in the brain and adrenaline resistance.

Adrenaline (resistance)

Go to Home Page

Adrenaline: a regulatory hormone produced by the adrenals that regulate metabolism of fat cells. The body has two adrenal glands; one on each kidney.

Overview

Adrenaline Resistance: refers to poor fat cell response to stimulation. As fat cells become leptin resistant, they do not respond to adrenaline stimulation. They become sluggish and accumulate fat more easily and refuse to give up fat when they should. A key obesity factor.

Properly functioning adrenals is highly dependent upon hormonal balance between insulin and leptin. Stress and anxiety create tremendous burden on the adrenals, which in turn burdens the thyroid.

Adrenaline resistance plays a MAJOR role in sexual hormone management, especially in females which partly explains why women cope with and express stress and anxiety differently than men.

Eliminate insulin and leptin resistance, dissolve sugar-based brain plaque, clear brain receptor function and the body automatically restores balance to the system, including pancreatic overload and adrenaline resistance.

Aerobic: a condition where oxygen is present [or needed and available], as opposed to an anaerobic (without oxygen) condition or need.

Overview

Organisms such as bacteria are classified as aerobic (requiring oxygen), anaerobic (not needing oxygen) and facultative anaerobes (able to live and function with or without oxygen.

Disease in the human body develops and eventually presents under conditions of restricted oxygen or outright anaerobism.

For example, cancer is a fungal condition manifesting in the body under conditions of acidity, low or no oxygen and fermentation of glucose sugars at the CELLULAR LEVEL.

Allergy: hypersensitivity of the immune system; an autoimmune response where the body appears to attacks itself, but this is not what is going on.

Overview

Systemic mold and fungus infection is common and is responsible for hundreds of symptoms, one of which is leaky-gut [syndrome].  The use of the word, syndrome, is admission by  experts that they do not have a clue how orwhy the condition manifests.

When molds establish themselves in the intestinal track, they sink their roots [hyphae] into the gut wall and create the condition of leaky-gut.  This in turn, gives birth to all kinds of so-called food allergies, gluten intolerance and skin related conditions, digestion issues, bowel disorders, asthma, ringing in ears [tinnitus], arthritis, etc.

Know that the DNA of fungi [such as Candida albicans] is so similar to human DNA that  both species can merge and create a HYBRID ORGANISM.

When this occurs, the body’s immune system no longer recognizes foreign DNA as foreign; rather, the immune system sees hybrid DNA as YOU because it is you, at least partly.

The problem occurs when the immune system allows molds and fungi to grow and spread throughout the body.

Overview

Allergies are confirmation of a damaged, compromised gut wall (leaky gut) and introduction of food proteins into the blood stream.

Food proteins can only digest (break-down into their constituent amino acids) in a highly acid stomach.  If they fail to do so, they become foreign proteins if they get into the blood producing violent reactions of the immune system where it attacks the body.

Autoimmune responses occur because of mycotoxin secretion of molds and fungi. Manifestations of fungal take-over that present as the Autoimmune Attack Cycle and Sugar/Alcohol Cycle.

Food reactions are similar to snake bite and stings of stinging insects because they are precipitated by invasion of “foreign” food protein access to the blood stream. [Venoms are foreign protein.]

Foreign proteins introduced into the body tissues and fluids by way of vaccination also provoke an antigen/antibody response that supposedly causes the body to build antibodies and acquire future ‘immunity’ (which is not true).

Common allergy responses people suffer are addressable conditions if diet, digestion and bowel and gut wall issues are not ignored; ; vaccinations cause serious and often irreversible damage to the small intestinal gut wall which haunts people throughout their entire lives in the form of unlimited syndromes and disorders.

Alzheimer’s, autism and Asperger’s have a lot to do with vaccinations and the introduction of formaldehyde, aluminum and mercury preservatives,  These CLASSIC autoimmune conditions all begin with “A”.

Please see Special Insights, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life for a thorough discussion of hormonal imbalance and resistance to leptin, insulin, adrenaline and glucagon all of which have EXTREME relevance to all things ‘allergy’ related.
