Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for April 23, 2007


Came across this today on the effects of sugar. I like it because it may explain why drinking cola drinks have always had an effect on my allergies. I would mention this to every doctor and allergy specialist and they all couldn’t explain why this was happening.

The article explains that colas are extremely acidic with a pH of approximately 2.5. This acidic environment in combination with the sugar content, probably had an effect on the candida and made my “allergies” worse.

Sugar And Your Health

Sugar is a chemical combination of Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen and refers to a large group of carbohydrates that are soluble in water, sweet to the taste and either directly or indirectly fermentable. Depending on how the Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen are combined or uncombined, we get sucrose (cane or beet sugar), glucose or dextrose (grape sugar), maltose (malt sugar), fructose, levulose (honey or fruit sugar), lactose (milk sugar), etc.

Sugar is virtually devoid of any key vitamins and minerals. Sugar contains 16 calories per teaspoon but has no B vitamins, chromium, magnesium, zinc or other trace minerals that the body needs to digest and metabolize it. Thus, to fully move the sugar through your digestive system, you body has to take B vitamins and other trace minerals from the healthy the food you eat, or from vitamins and minerals that your body is storing for future use. As a result, the sugar essentially robs your body of these beneficial nutrients.  Your body could be using these nutrients for more important purposes such as fighting infections, warding off allergies, or just plain energy.

Sugar gums up the immune system. Your immune system is made up of numerous antibodies who act like Pacman and attack foreign invaders. Medical studies have found that antibody production drops after people have as little as 18 grams of sugar, about as much as you’d find in half of a can of regular soda. Sugar interferes with the cells of the immune system. Eating just 3 oz of sugar can result in a 50% reduction of the ability of the white blood cells to gobble up and kill viruses and bacteria for up to five hours.

Ingesting sugar can cause a significant rise in triglycerides, cause kidney damage, reduce helpful high density fats (lipoproteins) and promote and elevation of the harmful low density fats and all those problems associated with vitamin deficiencies.

Due to the need to use up your body’s minerals, eating sugar can cause a chromium deficiency, copper deficiency, and can interfere with absorption of calcium and magnesium. an imbalance which can cause hyperactivity, anxiety, concentration difficulties.

People need a calcium-magnesium ration of 10 to 4. Sugar causes the phosphorus and calcium levels to either decrease or increase. If one increases the other decreases and vice versa. Researchers have found that ingesting sugar increases the rate at which we excrete calcium. It pulls the calcium from our bones and tissues.

Minerals are essential to many bodily functions. They are important for bones and teeth, helping to maintain the correct acidity of the blood, have specific functions in the transmission of nerve impulse and others are important in the process of digestion.

Homeostasis is the wonderful balance in the body. It involves a continual fine-tuning of the body chemistry. The vitamins and minerals are always fluctuating a little. This is normal. However, when the fluctuations become too great for to long, disease creeps in. And then there’s this other post where all your childhood fond memories of erm sugar eating momments are quashed.. and destroyed….

SUGAR: YOU JUST LOVE YOUR CHILDREN TO DEATH

Gregory Grosbard of Miami, Florida received a U.S. patent on a process to improve the strength of plastic by using sugar. Each time plastic goes through a heat cycle, it loses strength because oxygen in the atmosphere goes into the material and creates oxygen “holes.” Mr. Grosbard found that, by mixing a small amount of sugar into the plastic material during the heat cycle, the sugar grabbed the oxygen first, preventing the oxygen holes and making the plastic stronger.

Research has shown that:

*Processed sugar blocks the absorption of calcium.

*Processed sugar produces a low oxygen environment.

*Processed sugar is extremely acidic.

*Too much processed sugar is the death of the immune system. It interrupts the Kreb’s energy cycle which in turn suppresses your immune system’s manufacture of killer cells and antibodies.

*Processed sugar depletes B vitamins which is needed by the liver to detoxify it. The liver is the most important organ when it comes to healing the body.

*Sugar does stop hiccups. The New England Journal of Medicine published the results of a study that used sugar successfully to stop hiccups in 19 out of 20 people; some of whom had been hiccupping for as long as 6 weeks.

Cancer has become the number one “killer disease in children” in the past few years. Sugar consumption is robbing the oxygen out of their little bodies and making their cells extremely acidic while shutting off their immune systems. Sugar averages for children are around 36 teaspoons a day.

The next time you feel like having a soda, just think about this: Colas are extremely acidic with a pH of approximately 2.5. It takes 32 glasses of water with a pH of 10 to neutralize that one cola. And, keep in mind that most water is relatively neutral with a pH of 7.2; water with a pH of ten is approximately one thousand times more alkaline than your run of the mill glass of water.
