The sugar journey in your body:
When refined sugar enters the stomach, it causes what is known as a
sugar reaction where the stomach is paralyzed. As little as a quarter
teaspoon can cause this.
Since refined sugar is strongly
alkaloid, the stomach will secrete an unusually high amount of acid to
make balance. If this process is repeated over a long period of time, an
ulceration of the walls of the stomach will occur.
normally maintains a weak alkaline condition, and when strongly alkaline
sugar is introduced, the acid reaction takes place causing the bloodstream to become over acidic. Acidic blood is a breeding ground for disease.
compensate for this our internal supply of minerals is mobilized so as
to restore a normal balance. The minerals in our daily food and reserves
should be sufficient to cope with the situation.
