076 What You Need to Know about Acid Alkaline Balance w/ Dr. Russell Jaffe
Health Mysteries Solved
The Case: Elody is not feeling well. She has aches and pains as well as digestive issues. She also has dull hair and skin. She read about the benefits of an alkaline diet and started taking baking soda and drinking alkalized water but it made her feel worse. The Investigation There are many studies that support having a more alkaline diet and encourage people to support this diet with sodium bicarbonate. On the surface, it might seem like a good idea. I suspected Elody was on the right track trying to adjust her pH levels but I also knew the mystery ran a bit deeper than that. To fully understand the intricacies of finding the perfect internal pH balance, I’m excited to welcome one of the most respected experts on the topic. Dr. Russell Jaffe has been searching for answers in health care (not sick-care) for the past 30 years. In his global search for insights, he’s developed a deep understanding of the importance of measuring and correcting the body’s pH levels. The Role of pH in Health The body’s pH levels are reflected in the venous and arterial blood, and in the cells themselves. The range of pH is broad (0-12) but the healthy human range is just on the alkaline side of neutral. A chance in pH by as little as 1/100 of a pH unit can have a profound effect on human health. So, even tiny changes in pH can result in significant shifts in how well we feel. Staying inside the healthy pH range is getting harder and harder in our modern culture. Does Taking Baking Soda Help Your pH Levels (by Increasing Alkaline Levels)? Dr. Jaffe says the science makes sense but in practice, this is a silly approach. Taking bicarbonate, sodium bicarbonate, or potassium bicarbonate will disrupt the natural (and necessary) acidity of the stomach. This can lead to serious digestive issues. The Healthy Way to Alkalize the Body Dr. Jaffe explains that the only way to biologically alkalize the body is to: Take in minerals, particularly magnesium and potassium in ways that the body can absorb and retain Reduce the metabolic acid production by reducing toxin exposure, reducing stress (and distress) levels, and improving your nutritional competence. Symptoms of Low pH Levels There are a variety of symptoms that could indicate a low pH (below 6.5) including feeling stressed out, hopeless, or helpless. Fatigue, dehydration, and poor digestion can also be symptoms. Even a desire to drink alcohol can be an indication of a low body pH. Symptoms of High pH Levels Being over-alkaline has negative health effects too. Being in this state for an extended time is called catabolic illness. In this state, the body starts to use amino acids for energy which means the body starters to break down lean muscle to use as fuel. This produces extra ammonia which ends up in the urine. This stress-related disorder is reversible if you are proactive in restoring the neural hormonal immune defence and repair, and digestive competencies that have been eroded. Testing Your pH Levels It can be difficult to tell if you’re pH is out of balance (too acidic or too alkaline) without testing. Testing does not require a lab. Dr. Jaffe suggests doing a daily pH level test first thing in the morning and keeping a log to track your balance. The test is a urine test that can be done at home. Dr. Jaffe recommends testing your first urination of the day by peeing on a pH paper strip or dipping the strip in a clean cup of urine. The strip will change color. If you have an excess of metabolic acids, your pH will be below 6.5 and the strip will turn a sandy-red. If you are in optimal range (6.5-7.5) the strip will turn green. If you are above 7.5 consistently, you may have catabolic illness which should be addressed. Dr. Jaffe recommends using the 5.5-8 range strips because that’s the biological pH paper. Restoring the pH Balance The best way to reset the body’s pH levels is through diet. Here is a chart that identifies foods that can help shift the balance. While alkaline water may seem like an easy and healthy way to increase alkalinity, Dr. Jaffe says that food is a better choice. Select foods that you can digest, assimilate, and eliminate without immune burden. And, support your diet with magnesium. The Role of Magnesium in Balancing Cellular Acidity and Alkalinity Magnesium is a mineral that amplifies hormonal signals. It is required by the body to balance out calcium, maintain healthy alkaline levels, and keep the mitochondria battery charged up (which is necessary for cells to process optimally). Almost all Americans have a relative excess of calcium and an absolute deficiency of magnesium. How Much Magnesium Should You Take? There are a variety of different supplements on the market that all say ‘magnesium’. Some have so little bioavailable magnesium that they are not worth taking. Dr. Jaffe recommends taking a good quality magnesium (225 milligrams) along with a teaspoon (1300 milligrams) of choline citrate 2 - 5 times per day. He doesn’t recommend doubling the dosage and taking it fewer times a day as you will hit your maximum threshold. Mystery Solved The first thing I did for Elody was to stop the baking soda and alkaline water. We also shifted her diet to be more alkaline by lowering the heavy meats and starches and added in more green veggies (avoiding spinach). And, we made sure to keep her diet clean and move away from processed foods. A hair analysis revealed that her magnesium was low and the morning urine testing showed that he pH was too acidic. After 4 weeks, she started to feel better so we added 450 mg of magnesium buffered chelate per day in divided doses and she took that with choline citrate like Dr. Jaffe spoke about. It took another 4 weeks for her to see a difference in her urine strips but then they finally shifted from a more yellowish to a greenish color which is where we want to be. At that point, she really started to notice a difference. Her energy was better, her stomach stopped hurting and her skin had a new found glow. Next Steps We still needed to support her gut because while her stomach aches were better, she still had gas, bloating, and irregular bowel movements. We did a stool test and saw some bacterial overgrowth and also low stomach acid. We supported her gut biome with GI MicrobX and Micro-Gone along with Tricycline to kill off the bugs and used Betaine HCL to help balance her stomach acid. Happy Ending After the stomach cleanse and support, her digestion improved even more. She no longer felt gassy and bloated and her bowel movements were much more regular. She and I were both thrilled. Eliminating Health Mysteries For Elody we were able to find that missing piece of the health puzzle and help her regain her health.

Ep. 84 - Live in Harmony With Your Nature: 8 Predictive Biomarkers For Lifetime Health - with Dr. Russell Jaffe
The Rebel Health Coach
Dr. Russell Jaffe returns to discuss the eight predictive biomarkers for lifetime health! Dr. Jaffe is considered one of the pioneers of integrative and regenerative medicine, continually seeking new ways to help speed the transition from our current healthcare system’s symptom reactive model to a more functionally integrated, effective, and compassionate system.And understanding what these eight tests are and what they indicate is a critical step in that transition because it empowers you, as an individual, with the knowledge necessary to advocate for your own health — not for treatment after you’re sick, but for preventative treatment that helps you maintain optimal health.So, why these eight tests? That’s because 92% of your lifetime health outcomes are the result of lifestyle habits (or epigenetics), and these eight functional tests will provide the most comprehensive measure of whether your lifestyle habits are contributing negatively or positively to your health. More than that, referencing where your results fall near the optimal results range for each test can give you and your healthcare provider the information necessary to make specific lifestyle changes that will have the greatest impact on your individual health.The 8 Tests:Test #1 = Insulin, blood sugar, carbohydrate metabolism = Hemoglobin A1C – measures extra sugar in our body.Test #2 = (High Sensitivity) C-Reactive Protein: all-cause morbidity indicator.Test #3 = Homocysteine or HCy: Methylation, repair of blood vessels and cardiovascular healthTest #4 = Lymphocyte & Immune Tolerance (Dr. Jaffe helped develop this one) – what environmental compounds can you tolerate without stressing digestion, sleep, mood, cognition, and performance?Test #5 = The pH of our first morning urination: Measuring mineral status and cellular metabolic acidosis – the batteries inside the cell for cellular energyTest #6 = Vitamin D (25-HydroxyD): how this “neurohormone” functions in cellular cross-talk and plays a major role in mitigating cellular mutations (Cancer)Test #7 = Omega 3 index - The Omega-3:Omega-6 RatioTest #8 = 8-Oxo-Guanine, Oxidative Damage from environmental toxins: How 8-Oxo-Guanine measures exposure to the VOC’s, POPs (hormone disruptors), mold, radiation, chemicals, pesticides, and other landmines from the 21st century! We break down the optimal values of each test in the episode, but you can also find a more detailed breakdown of what each test is measuring in this journal article: “Predictive Biomarkers in Personalized Laboratory Diagnosis and Evidence Based Best Practices Outcome Monitoring.”If you need some assistance figuring out how to get the tests, what to say to your PCP, or interpreting the tests, I’d love to help you! You can book a free 20-minute consultation and we’ll talk about what’s best for you from there.Finally, I want to leave you with Dr. Jaffe’s top tip for living optimally: “Live in harmony with your nature.”Of course, that requires that you know your nature first! If you can discover your nature and live in harmony with that, THAT is the secret to happiness. Otherwise, it is going to fight with you.--Resources:Learn more at www.drrusselljaffe.comFREE eBook: Joy in Living: The Alkaline WayFacebook: www.facebook.com/Dr-Russell-Jaffe-203246906686079/Twitter: twitter.com/DrRussellJaffeInstagram: www.instagram.com/rmjaffe1Get 15% off Leaner Creamer using code REBEL15 at LeanerCreamer.comDo you want more to empower yourself through healthy living?
