Oxidation is a process whereby elements combine with oxygen. In this combining electrons get kicked out of the orbit of an atom’s nucleus, and this increases the positive or proton valence. Oxidation can be either beneficial to the body, assisting alkalization, or it can create free radicals, causing destruction to cells. This is most evident in acidosis where inflammation is present. A superoxide radical is formed when oxygen compounds have not been completely broken down or utilized properly because of the inflammatory (acidosis) condition. This causes further breakdown of cells. These oxygen compounds are less likely to be broken down properly when we are low in antioxidants or our immune system is underactive (hypoactive). When this breakdown and utilization of oxygen compounds is poorly functioning, free radicals are created. Without proper ionization or neutralization, these free radicals will join, creating more tissue damage. It becomes clear why there is such a demand for food which contain a lot of antioxidants. Antioxidants are attracted to free radicals to bond, so they can neutralize the damaging effects.

Oxidation leads to ionization, or the transmutation of elements or compounds into simple ions. An element can start out negatively charged (alkaline), creating a cationic reaction. Through ionization (chemical magnetism) the same element can become positively charged (acidic), creating an anionic reaction. An example of this is with the element calcium (of a plant) (alkaline), it works with other elements like magnesium, sodium, potassium. They alkalise the body’s fluids, these elements are called electrolytes. However, when it gets into the bloodstream they can become ionized- or attracted to other elements magnetically. This can cause an acidic complex and become anionic. An example of this is with calcium and phosphate, creating calcium phosphate to build up the skeletal system. However, the same thing can happen with free radicals like oxalates, which forms calcium oxalate stones. This causes inflammation and tissue damage. Water is a great catalyst (mover/changer) for oxidation. You see that when water combined with metals, it creates rust. In our blood serum this oxidation creates electrolytes, which are conductors of energy. Ionization creates positive (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium) and negative ions (chloride, sulfates, phosphates, carbonates). Ions are your catalysts, like enzymes, which create action and reaction, or building and destroying. Alkalies create anabolism, meaning that it is building, rebuilding, growing and creating aspects of life. Acids on the other hand, create catabolism, meaning that it tears down, breaks apart and destroys aspects of nature. The one can not exist without the other. Alkalinity disperses, moves and cleans the body; whereas acidity coagulates, forms masses and stagnates the body. Acidity coagulates, it binds and is anionic. Acidosis causes malnutrition, inflammation, stone formation, pain, electrolyte depletion (dehydration), swelling, convulsions, and death. Nature seems to favour alkaline solutions.

We always have to keep in mind that alkalies neutralizes acids. It is the key to regeneration.
