People who have insufficiently wrapped their minds around redox biophysics refer to relative metabolic acidosis as “increased systemic oxidative stress,” the fundamental cause of opioid food misuse disorder and nicotine misuse disorder, and their associated symptoms of ischemic heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, lung disease, and Alzheimer’s. Oxidative stress doesn’t actually describe or help clinicians visualize how chronic illness is prevented and evolves whereas “relative metabolic acidosis” helps clinicians see exactly how chronic illness can be prevented and progress—namely, by sizzling our minds and bodies from within each one of our 37 trillion cells.
Redox detox thinking via Overeaters Anonymous (OA), Nicotine Anonymous (NicA), and Emotions Anonymous (EA) helps reduce systemic acidotic cortisol levels as well as adrenaline, dopamine, and opioid withdrawal symptoms, such as fear, worry, anxiety, unhappiness, pain, and attention deficit. Regular OA, NicA, or EA attendance helps restore relative metabolic alkalosis, which is associated with more courage, acceptance, serenity, compassion, and happiness.
Redox detox aerobic exercises include bicycling, dancing, hiking, jumping jacks, leg lifts, rowing, swimming, and tai chi helps reduce the relative metabolic acidosis of stagnation and rigorous anaerobic exercise. If individuals are still too overweight to begin a more alkaline-type physical routine, then remember what Hippocrates said: Walking is man’s best medicine. Have individuals start out by walking as far as is comfortably possible. Then, at one-week increments, move the time they walk up a notch so that they are eventually walking 20 to 40 minutes per day. They may walk around their home or around an indoor mall when weather is uncomfortable. Redox detox eating and drinking are contraindicated in people taking blood thinners and consist of consuming more than 50% of food and drink from minimal processed avocado, asparagus, baby lima beans, broccoli, broccoli rabe or rapini, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, celery, chard, collard greens, cucumber, gandules, giant lima beans, green beans, Italian cut green beans, kale, leeks, limes, mustard greens, okra, seaweed, spring greens, sprouts, wheat grass, and zucchini.
Progress can be assessed by monitoring urine pH and at home, using relative skin smoothness, increased bleeding time after shaving cuts or paper cuts, urine pH greater than 6.8, and urine alkalinity greater than 120, which can be measured using multi-purpose 6-way test strips. Prescribing pills without co-prescribing a greater alkaline lifestyle will remain an exercise in futility in the clinical management of chronic illness and the prevalence of chronic illness.
