Alkalize And (Not “Or”) Die
Re: Nothing would cause over-alkalinity That’s a false statement that we can be too alkaline. Nonsense. 100%.
Vomiting causes death by alkalosis.
Altitude sickness causes alkalosis.
Salicylate poisoning causes alkalosis.
Diuretic overuse causes alkalosis.
Excessive sweating causes alkalosis. Hundreds of marathon runners have died from it.
Diarrhea causes alkalosis. There are exceptions to the rule: Diarrhea from cholera causes acidosis.
Potassium loss causes hypokalemic alkalosis.
Alcohol abuse causes alkalosis.
Milk-alkali syndrome causes alkalosis. Untreated milk-alkali syndrome leads to kidney failure or death.
Millions of people died of metabolic alkalosis due to the milk + alkaline diet concocted by gastroenterologist Bertram Welton Sippy (1866–1924) to “treat” gastric and duodenal ulcers. The diet was followed for decades. Dr. Sippy made an honest mistake, since the Assassins In White can’t make big bucks out of moo glue and bland food.
Calcium supplementation has caused a dramatic return of metabolic alkalosis from milk-alkali syndrome. (It’s still called milk-alkali syndrome although no milk need be involved.)
Magnesium supplementation has also caused a return of metabolic alkalosis from milk-alkali syndrome.
“A high level of vitamin D in the body, such as from taking supplements, can worsen milk-alkali syndrome,” according to MedlinePlus.
“By 1985 with the widespread use of proton-pump inhibitors and antibiotic therapies for peptic ulcer disease, the milk-alkali syndrome essentially disappeared, accounting for less than 1% of hypercalcemia cases. However, now, the syndrome has again risen in clinical importance as the third most common cause of hypercalcemia behind malignancy [CANCER] and primary hyperparathyroidism,” according to an article in The Journal of General Internal Medicine (May 5, 2007). Wait a minute! Malignancy? Cancer? I thought cancer couldn’t exist in an alkaline body? I read it on the internet. It MUST be true!
Alkaloid abuse results in metabolic alkalosis. According to the Clinical Kidney Journal (“Heroin crystal nephropathy, Jun. 2015), “Urine microscopy showed numerous broomstick-like crystals. These crystals are also identified in light and electron microscopy. We hypothesize that heroin crystalizes in an alkaline pH, resulting in tubular obstruction and acute kidney injury. Management is mainly supportive as there is no known specific therapy for this condition.”
That’s just for starters.
