Water & Alkalinity
Acid-Alkaline balance is universally misunderstood.
The foolishness started with the beaker boys, who concocted the pH scale (hydrogen ion concentration, zero to 14).

“The analysis of different urine samples have shown that the amount of water present in urine seems to influence indirectly its constitution. It could thus be seen that while very diluted urine, corresponding to a large amount of water excreted, is usually alkaline, concentrated urine, corresponding to small amounts of water excreted, is generally acid. Furthermore, it could be seen that these changes are related to more profound metabolic differences. When related to nitrogen metabolism, it could be seen that diluted urines are rich in free ammonia while concentrated urines in uric acid.”

“In fish, with water almost unlimited, nitrogen is excreted in the form of ammonia. The high toxicity in this form of nitrogen excretion is counter-balanced by the amount of water in which the excreta are diluted. Fish are ammonloselic. In terrestrial mammals, where the amount of water available is more limited, the excretion of nitrogen is made in the form of urea which is much less toxic than ammonia. The danger of poisoning the drinking water through excreta is thus reduced. Mammals are ureoselic animals. For birds, for whom water is scarce, the form of nitrogen excretion is uric acid, which through its low solubility in water, has little chance to contaminate the drinking water. Birds are uricoselic.”
People know more about their house plants than their own bodies.

“The roots of a plant absorb air, water and nutrients to support the stems and leaves above. Excessive watering cuts off the air and the roots begin to suffocate, rot and eventually die. Fungus and mold in the soil increases, causing trouble for the remaining healthy roots. The most common signs of overwatering are wilting leaves and a pot that feels heavy due to soggy soil. Yellow leaves, mushy or loose bark on the plant stems and molds that appear on the top of the soil are also indicators of overwatering.”

“The amount of water a person needs is extremely variable, depending on things such as metabolic rate, activity, and the temperature and humidity of the air. Working hard in hot, dry weather, it’s possible to drink more than two quarts per hour for more than eight hours, without forming any urine, because all of the water is lost by evaporation. But in very hot, humid weather, a person with a low metabolic rate can be endangered by the smallest amount of water (e.g., ‘Meteorological relations of eclampsia in Lagos, Nigeria,’ Agobe, et al., 1981).”
