This came straight from Dr. Robert O. Young at the pH Miracle Living Center in Valley Center, California. I look forward to his daily e-mails. Here is a great one on the effects of negative emotions. Visit his website for more great facts.
Can positive or negative thoughts and emotions affect the body's delicate biochemistry or the acid/alkaline pH balance?
Love, fear, joy, anger, sadness, happiness, and resentment.
Can positive or negative emotions affect our bodies' physical, mental and spiritual health?
Is a woman more likely to become pregnant if she eats a lot of vegetables or if she goes on a long, relaxing vacation? Are you more likely to end up with cancer if you have a hot temper? Do people who laugh a lot live longer? Does your fear or discomfort with crowds, elevators, blood, heights, spiders, hospitals, or flying in airplanes somehow affect your health?
My theory of one sickness, one disease and one health, set forth in what I call "The New Biology," not only considers how our diet affects our physiology, but also how our psychology affects our physiology and how our psychology affects our spirituality.
Not only does the health of your body affect the emotions of your mind, but your thoughts and feelings can affect the health of your entire body.
Bottom line, your mental state is so critical. In ever so many ways, your mental state, if it's negative, can create more metabolic acids than the acidic food that you're eating.
In fact, you can create two or three times more metabolic acids from your thoughts or your mental and emotional state than from ingesting highly acidic dairy, animal protein, sugar or alcohol.
So your thoughts are critical. Your thoughts or words do become matter, and can affect your physiology in a negative or positive way. Your thoughts do become biology. And the way that thoughts become biology is as follows:
When you have a thought or say a word, it requires electrical or electron energy for the brain cell(s) to produce those actions. And as you carrying on with that thought, you are burning or consuming energy. And when you are consuming energy in your thoughts, you are producing a biological waste product called acid and an energetic acidic waste product which can be measured in hertz and decibels.
Next, if the metabolic acids from your thoughts are not properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination which are urination, perspiration, respiration or defecation, then the acids from your thoughts are moved out into your connective and fatty tissues . Metabolic and/or dietary acid cannot be allowed to affect the delicate pH of the blood. The delicate balance of the blood must be maintain at a constant 7.365 to remain healthy.
What happens next is this. As the excess and overload of metabolic acid from your emotions are thrown out into the body tissues, this can easily lead to all sorts of symptomologies: lupus, fibromyalgia, arthritis, muscle pain, fatigue, tiredness, obesity, cancerous breasts, cancerous prostate, cancerous stomach and/or bowels, indigestion, acid reflux, heart burn, heart attacks, and the list goes on and on.
For example let's say you've been doing sadness or depression. This downer feeling is coming from a negative experience that you keep looping and re-looping in your head. It's like a mind movie. It's a mini-drama that you keep playing over and over. And because you are constantly thinking about it, eventually you even start to be concerned or worried about the fact that you are so preoccupied with the whole affair. So now in addition to the sad drama, you have upset about the fact that you're having the drama itself. All this thinking requires energy and when your are consuming energy you are producing metabolic acids.
Do you know any angry people? You may not know it, but many people who become angry easily not only get angry at various people, events, and situations, but eventually they are irritated with themselves for being so angry at everything else. Anger, for instance, requires a tremendous amount of energy and emits a tremendous amount of electrical energy. You have undoubtedly felt the vibrational energy of someone who is angry. Or maybe you have felt your own anger and how it can upset your physiology, i.e., especially upset your stomach and bowels with acid.
Even worse, many of these negative emotions are chronic and can be traced all the way back to early childhood experiences. So, at one level or another, it's been going on for a long time and creating excessive acid all along. Early childhood are some of the most fearful and vulnerable years for many people. Have you ever wondered why you can't remember much before age five or six? Many of those years are filled with fears and tears, mads and sads and how about the "bads"? What happened when you were "bad?"
Chronic emotions begin early:
"O dear white children casual as birds, Playing among the ruined languages,
So small beside their large confusing words,
So gay against the greater silences, Of dreadful things you did..."
It is during these vulnerable and unprotected years that we often plant eternal seeds of emotion that will yield an unwelcome harvest of acidic internal results, perhaps throughout one's entire life.
The turmoil between parents and children, not to mention the conflicts between children and children, have been documented by literally millions of social science books are articles.
"Children begin by loving their parents; after a time they judge them; Rarely, if ever, do they forgive them."
So, let's take a look at all of that emotion. Perhaps you are feeling emotional. It could be any emotion.
First of all, emotions are energy in motion. When you are (e)motional, you are energetic, either in a positive or negative way. And if you are energetic in your (e)motions, you are literally energy in (e)motion. You are now producing metabolic acids at a very high rate which is a waste product of such (e)motions that will make you sick, tired and depressed.
The rate of acid production in an (e)motional state can be even greater than that of someone who is jogging or working out. So, your thoughts do become biological or metabolic acids that can make you sick, tired, depressed, angry and even too fat or thin.
When you start producing acids with your thoughts, what happens inside? First, you activate the alkaline-buffering systems of the body in order to neutralize these (e)motional acids. The body begins making a primary alkaline buffer know as sodium bicarbonate. It's actually made from the blood and in its production it creates a waste product known as hydrochloric acid. This poisonous acid cannot remain in the blood so it is left in the gastric pits of the stomach. This is why people get upset stomachs when they are (e)motional. This necessary increase of sodium bicarbonate is critical in maintaining the alkaline design of the body and the fluid pH of the blood and interstitial fluids at pH 7.365. If (e)motional acids, including the hydrochloric acid, are not buffered and/or eliminated through the four channels of elimination, they can create serious health challenges in your body, mind, and spirit.
On the other hand, positive (e)motions, such as love, peace, hope, faith, joy, forgiveness and charity can be alkalizing to the blood and tissues. These (e)motions require far less energy in motion and can cause you to be relaxed in your mind and stop the playing of an acidic movie in your head. Students of higher consciousness know that you can even enter into a state of bliss wherein you have no thoughts and wherein you are producing no metabolic acid.
For myself, I have decided to call this place "Young Love." That's because I exercise and meditate every day. And I Love it! And it raises my level of consciousness and connection with the world. The connections between "Young" and "Love" are numerous. My name is Young, of course, and the purpose of life is Love. So Young and Love go together. I Love my exercising and it Loves me back in terms of its gifts to me. I find myself Loving this state of bliss daily which I know is helping to alkalize my body. That is why I am addicted to --and why I Love--this type of alkalizing exercise that I do every day. It's called a Positive Addiction. I Love to have my friends and guests work out with me as I lead them through the steps. I teach them the Younga version of Yoga. I tell them that it is known as Younga Yoga. They Love that. (Well, at least they laugh.) It incorporates proper breathing, stretching, toning, mediation, relaxation, and of course some sweating to rem
ove yesterday's dietary and metabolic acid and to bring me into a state of happiness and bliss.
Through my personal and clinical research, I have found that maintaining the alkaline design of my body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet is the most important thing anyone can do to live a happier and more blissful life. Having an alkaline day is a way of life that I call Young Living. I guarantee you that what I call Young Love will go hand-in-hand with the goal of Young Living.
Now this next thought is very important! The negative (e)motions of anger, resentment, and fear being the most powerful and acidifying of all emotions are all highly acidic to the blood and tissues and in many ways are paralyzing to all bodily functions. Over time, the fear of the unknown is probably the most powerful and acidic of them all. Fear is so devastating to the body that even if you're on an alkaline diet, overcoming a serious health challenge is practically impossible.
In such a case, with apparently little or no improvement, you might be wondering if the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet may not be working. You may be asking, "What else am I not doing that I should be? How come I feel the way that I'm feeling? I'm eating the right way, I'm drinking the right alkaline electron rich water, but I can't seem to achieve the type of extraordinary health and energy that I'm seeking." In most cases, it will come down to your negative acidic (e)motions or thoughts that are holding you back from achieving extraordinary health, fitness, mental clarity, happiness, love, charity and bliss.
The leading cause of death in the world today is said to be heart attacks. But people are having "thought attacks," NOT "heart attacks." There are studies showing that over 80% of all heart attacks are (e)motionally triggered. I have said that people don't die of a heart attack, they die of a thought attack that medical science refers to as a heart attack. And if you have wondered if you can die from a broken heart, the answer is absolutely! And the cause? Acids from energy in motion or (e)motion. The loss of a cherished love one can increase your metabolic acids from the (e)motion to the point that it can stop your heart from beating and pumping life-giving blood throughout your blood vessels. And life and death is in the blood.
So, is it fair to say that negative emotions can affect the way a person feels and heals if a person is overwhelmed with negative (e)motions? Does anyone have a fair chance of healing themselves from a degenerative disease or dis-ease like heart disease or cancer? Can you ever achieve a state of blissful happiness? I say "absolutely!"
Given the importance of (e)motions in cancer or acidic causation, etc., I have been particularly interested in the unique biochemistry of the "reptilian brain" which includes the Amygdala. Acid or sugar activates the areas of the Amygdala very specifically. I have wondered if the pH Miracle electron-rich alkaline Lifestyle and Diet is not more "calming" to the lower (e)motions (responses of the reptilian brain) than a drug which "inactivates the Amygdala...assuming we still find value in sexual attraction, socialization, and attraction to home and hearth (all functions of the Amygdala as much as "fight and flight")."
In our attempts to find a drug to treat everything, we (more often than not) create more problems than we eliminate...one step forward and three steps backward. I know that ADHD responds to an alkaline regime....and hyperactivity is an Amygdala function ..so it follows that an alkaline lifestyle and diet would produce less "stress" (really just the fight or flight mechanism by another name) as well.
The pH Miracle electron-rich alkaline lifestyle and diet is calming to the mind and thus calms the negative (e)motions or energy in motion. This calming of the Amygdala function produces less "stress." And, with less "stress" you have less "acid." And, with less "acid" you have less sickness, dis-ease, so-called disease, depression and unhappiness.
Can our (e)motions cause cancer? Absolutely!
I have said that cancer is a four letter word - ACID. When you are doing negative acidic (e)motions, such as anger, revenge, hate, sadness or depression you are creating metabolic acids that can cause ANY and ALL cancerous conditions of the body tissues. If metabolic acids are not removed via urination, perspiration, defecation or respiration then they are delivered to the body tissues. When constant excess acid from negative (e)motions are poured into the body tissues the body tissues will degenerate causing a cancerous condition. Pharmaceutical companies are creating drugs that may give you the illusion of feeling better but they DO NOT deal with the metabolic acids from negative acidic (e)motions. This can only lead to more physical and emotional pain.
When you are in a negative (e)motional state, it can become impossible for you to heal your serious degenerative or acidic challenge. But, I will say this: if you are willing to commit to change and begin the alkalizing process, even if you are not completely out of your state of fear, anger, depression or anger, you will begin to put more Young Life, Young Energy, and Young Love into your body.
When you're living and eating an alkaline lifestyle and diet and when you are overwhelmed with negative (e)motions, thank God if you are living and eating an alkaline lifestyle and diet or you might be dead. Your acid causing (e)motions can kill you. But the pH Miracle alkaline Lifestyle and Diet is the saving grace of all this and the hope and love that you can hang on and be healthy physically and mentally.
It has been said that you can live without food for forty days, you can live without water for four days, you can live without air for about four minutes, but you cannot live without love for more than a second. You see, love is the key, and that's what the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet and "Young Living and Young Love" will do for you - give you the hope and love you are seeking and deserve. The pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet program gives you the hope and love you need to breathe better, to start drinking the right kind of water, to start eating the right kind of food, that will lead you back to the right (e)motions so you can start feeling better, thinking better and doing better.
When I have a client that's in negative acid forming (e)motions, all the body fluids, including the blood will show a decline in the pH even if this person has been eating an alkaline diet. In order to buffer the acid forming (e)motions the client will have to hyper-alkalize the blood and then tissues to bring the body back into alkaline balance. When the client is hyper-alkalizing the pH of the urine will increase into the high 8's and 9's. Hyper-alkalization is necessary in order to overcompensate for the negative acidic producing (e)motions and to bring the body back to health, energy, vitality, hope, peace, harmony and "Young Love."
I have found over the years that when you start feeling better, you start thinking better. And when you start thinking better, you start doing better. So, you don't have to have your (e)motions under control in order to start losing weight, to start feeling better, to start reversing a serious illness, to start to have more sustainable Young Energy and to start to be happy, blissful and spiritually connected.
When you start the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet program, you are then making a conscious decision to try to do a little better. And, when you get on this healing path that leads to "Young Living," "Young Energy" and "Young Love," this gradual alkalizing process--you start having those little and then big pH miracles. You start feeling better and you start thinking better. And, when you start feeling better and thinking better -- all of a sudden, you forget your depression and your sadness. You forget that you were angry. You forget that you were fearful. In fact you forget what you were fearful about in the first place. Why because you feel so good. You are rewriting your genetics with your positive (e)motions. You are taking your alkalizing eraser and erasing all your past life's negative (e)motions. On the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet your (e)motions or energy in motion will finally be under your control. You will become the master of your mind, body and spirit
. You will be living an alkaline lifestyle and diet full of energy, happiness, bliss and love. You will be living and breathing "Young Love."
