Lactic Acid Mechanism Deteriorates the Body and Causes Chronic Illness
Now that you know that lactic acid mechanism is the most common way for the body to deteriorate and cause chronic illness, it’s time to stop it. Learn how to stop lactic acidosis in 4 steps with help from The NHCAA.
To stop it, you simply need to understand the four steps of lactic acidosis. The good news is that each of these four steps can be stopped if it’s not too late.
The first thing to do is to stop your cells from using sugar as fuel. Eat a low carb diet. Get your carbohydrates down below 20 grams per day. Use an app on your smartphone like Cronometer to track the grams of carbohydrates. When your carbs are below 20 grams per day, you end up in ketosis which means you are using fat for fuel rather than sugar. Make sure you get extra fat and protein to satisfy your appetite. This is the ideal state of the body.
The next thing to do is to remove hydrogen, which is acid from the muscles. Hydrogen is one of the waste products of burning sugar. It causes muscle burning and achiness. Maybe you feel this chronically in your low back, heart, neck, or even intestines. The best food to do this is red meat which has heme iron which feeds oxygen and iron to the muscles. The oxygen combines with the hydrogen (acid) and turns into water! Eating red meat is the best food you can eat to feed your muscles which is the largest organ in your body. If you don’t feed your muscles well, the rest of your organs don’t have a chance.

The third thing to do is clean the blood of wastes. This is called “detoxifying”. But first, you have to stop eating processed food. It has lots of chemicals in it and refined grains and sugars create the lactate and other wastes we are trying to get rid of. Next, eating vegetables can be very cleansing. The best ones are cruciferous vegetables and root vegetables such as beets. Healthy, clean animal foods are also very beneficial to the body. Eating liver and red meat is also very detoxifying. Ketosis is the foundation of detoxification.
Strike a balance between vegetables and meat consumption. Some people need more meat, some prefer more vegetables. Other detoxifying practices include sauna and detox supplements. If you live in a moldy home or work in a toxic building, you should remediate the mold or removing yourself from the toxic building.
Lastly, make sure the liver is working well so it can recycle lactate back into fuel and clean the blood of the other wastes which are called acetate, acetaldehyde, and ethanol. The vegetables above can help the liver but the best thing you can do is eat liver! If you don’t like the taste, eat pate. If you don’t like pate, then take supplements that have liver in them. There are many supplements on the market with liver in them.
The Best Supplements From The Best Companies
In my 20 plus years of working in the natural healthcare field, I have been able to determine the best supplements from the best companies. I’ve been using them on my patients, my parents, and I take them myself every day. When new supplements come out on the market, I can tell if they are worth taking or not.
But for now, I want you to become aware that there are some powerful supplements that are focused on helping your body reduce lactic acidosis and we will be going over them in the next chapter.
Now that you have a deeper understanding of these 4 steps of lactic acidosis and how to use them to take back control of your health, it’s time to find out why you may have never heard of lactic acidosis in the past and why it’s been hidden from you!
Why You Never Heard of Lactic Acidosis
There are 2 main factors that have prevented the world from finding out and made it hard to learn about lactic acidosis.
The first is the nutrition and medical research before World War 2 was on “feeding studies”, which are studies where they removed specific vitamins and nutrients from foods of animals to see the effects. They also had the opportunity to monitor poor families during the Great Depression who could only afford to eat white, refined bread. These families could not afford vegetables and meat, the foods that support organs. These studies where very powerful and gave us the foundational understanding of how vitamins and minerals work.

Then after WW2, pharmaceutical companies gained great strength and eventually, these nutritional feeding studies ended and soon after were forgotten about. Add to this, the federal government declared that Vitamin E and Vitamin C were mere “anti-oxidants”, essentially canceling decades of research and ignoring the disease-preventing abilities of these nutrients.
Dr. Royal Lee – The Father of Holistic Nutrition
Then the next factor was centered around Dr. Royal Lee, who was the Father of holistic nutrition. He was one of the most vocal and most powerful at educating the world on how whole food nutrition and supplements could help to reverse chronic health. This eventually led to a major lawsuit against him in 1961 to stop him from talking about healthcare or nutrition by the US Supreme Court. He lost the case and was forced to never talk about healthcare again and died in 1967 and this great information went with him.
Since then, this enormous and comprehensive subject of lactic acidosis which was well studied for over 100 years became 2 small subjects. The first subject was only for athletes- lactic acid in the muscles. The goal is to reduce the amount of lactic acid in muscles for better performance.
And the second smaller subject was related to people who only have a few days left to live. These people are in the hospital and they have suffered a heart attack or gotten a diagnosis of cancer. As a result, their bodies are filling up with lactic acid and the MD’s run a lactate test from blood and they also test the acidity of the blood. The higher the lactate and the more acidic the blood is, the shorter the lifespan of that person.
These two small subjects were taken out of context and the whole subject of lactic acidosis, including their appropriate solutions had been lost.
Which brings us back to the world we are living in today.
The World We Live In Today
There is a global epidemic of toxins, pathogens, and bad diet causing chronic diseases such as diabetes (high insulin), chronic pain, heart disease, cancer, etc.
These chronic diseases all have one thing in common – Lactic Acidosis.
Once you understand Lactic Acidosis – everything starts to fall into place!
To help gain more clarification, we are going to use the analogy of a car driving on a road.
The car represents your body…
The way you drive the car is your lifestyle…
The tires represent your organ health…
The bumpy road you choose to drive on represents exposures to Sugar, Toxins, and Pathogens.
Any compromised functionality of the car (your Body) represents Lactic Acidosis
So for a moment, imagine that your body is this car…
And the way you drive your car represents your Lifestyle…
