Mr. Sang Whang is a successful inventor, scientist, and engineer. He
explains the health and antiaging processes in layman terms
in his book,
Reverse Aging. Below is an excerpt from that book.
In order to learn how to get younger, we must understand the process
of antiaging and an alkaline diet.
Handling natural health improvement devices developed in Japan a few
years, I have witnessed as well as personally experienced many
mysterious phenomenon in the reverse aging effect.
Being a scientist, engineer, and inventor, I have tried to
understand and explain the phenomenon scientifically, applying the
scientific principles of those non-drug, natural health improvement
devices. During the course of the study, I came to a realization of
what the human aging process is about. The great news is that, with
this new theory, the antiaging process can be explained, and ANYBODY
CAN GET YOUNGER IF HE OR SHE SO DESIRES.
THE AGING PROCESS
We get old because we are not disposing of all the internally
wastes and toxins, and accumulate the leftovers within our body.
For our body to function and to maintain body temperature, we burn
nutrients within our cells. The main ingredients of all foods,
expensive or inexpensive, gourmet or junk, vegetable or meat,
alkaline or acid, are either carbohydrates, proteins or fats. And
they are nothing but the combinations of four elements: carbon,
nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen.
After these nutrients are burnt (oxidized) in the cells, they all
turn into organic acids: carbonic acids, uric acids, lactic acids,
fatty acids, ammonia, etc. Fats are acidic even before oxidation.
The Chinese word for oxygen is written with two characters,
"sahn-so". They literally mean "acid root".
These acidic wastes and toxins are disposed out of the body in
liquid form, as urine or perspiration, after first being dissolved
into the blood. Every element within our body was place there by the
blood and can come out of there by first being dissolved into the
blood and then being carried out. If anyone loses ten pounds by any
dietary means, it can be said that most of that ten pounds came out
through the urine.
Unfortunately, due to our life styles and environments (i.e., too
much ingestion, overwork, over indulgence, not enough rest, staying
up late, not enough exercise, inadequate water consumption, smoking,
pollution, low alkaline diet etc.) the body cannot get rid of all
the acidic waste products that it generates within. We accumulate
these left over waste products somewhere within our body. This is
the process of getting old.
To make matters worse, mixed with these organic acids are inorganic
acid minerals such as chlorine, phosphor, and sulfur that come in
with most of our acidic foods: meats, grains and root crops. We
don't eat enough of alkaline diet (antiaging) foods such as fruits
and vegetables that contain inorganic alkaline minerals: calcium,
magnesium, sodium, potassium, etc.
Although the amounts of inorganic minerals are small compared with
the organic acid wastes that the body produces, they contribute more
towards the acid side. However, one important thing to note is that
even if one does not eat any acidic food at all, as long as
carbohydrates and proteins are consumed, the body produces much more
acidic wastes than the inorganic alkaline minerals can counteract.
We are born with high
alkaline blood pH of 7.44. As we get older, the blood pH drops
down to 7.35 or below. The blood pH referred to here is the artery
blood pH. The difference of 0.09 in pH value seems very small but
since pH is logarithmic, the amount of hydroxyl ion (OH-) in 7.44 pH
is 1.23 times that of 7.35 pH, because 10=1.2303.
The hydroxyl ion is an oxygen donor while the hydrogen ion (H+) is
an oxygen taker. In other words, young people carry 23% more of the
oxygen donors in their blood than older people. No wonder they are
Uric acid is nearly insoluble in water, alcohol, and ether, but
soluble in solutions of alkaline salts. In other words, it becomes
soluble in alkaline water. Arthritis and gout are caused by uric
acid deposited between the joints, non-dissolved due to the low
alkalinity of an older person's blood. Drinking acid free alkaline
water will gradually elevate one's
and the gout will disappear naturally. (More about this acid free
alkaline water later)
As we live with poor waste disposal systems for a long period of
time, some parts of our body build up more acids than others, and
they can clog up capillary vessels around those acidic areas. This
causes some body organs to function in a sluggish manner. We feel
tired and run down sometimes for no reason whatsoever, and adult
diseases such as high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, asthma,
allergies, etc. start to set in WE SIMPLY ACCEPT THESE PHENOMENA AS
In some extreme cases, the build up of acidic elements are so great
that it starts to destroy healthy cells around them. Healthy cells
must maintain a slightly alkaline pH level. Some cells change their
formula in order to survive in an acidic environment. If they are
successful, this is the beginning of cancer. Cancer cells are acidic
while healthy cells are alkaline. Even if the cancerous tumors are
completely removed surgically, as long as the acidic conditions in
the area remain, the chances are that new tumors will develop around
the same area.
Exactly where the left over waste products are accumulated may very
according to every individual. However, the parts of the body where
wastes accumulate first may determine what kind of adult disease
that individual may develop first. Within one family, the storage
places may be similar. This may explain the hereditary effects of
certain adult diseases.
THE ANTIAGING PROCESS
Because the accumulation of waste products inside the body is the
aging process, helping the body to get rid of the OLD waste products
This reverse aging process takes two steps. The first step is to
develop a good disposal system and the second step is to pull out
the old wastes from their hiding places.
Development of A Good Disposal System
Since, as mentioned before, the waste disposal is done in liquid
form by urine and perspiration, it is imperative that we drink
plenty of water, When one is going through any diet program, doctors
tell him to drink 8 glasses of water a day. They know the disposal
is through urine, but they don't tell you what kind of water to
Since all waste products are acidic, the best kind of water is acid
free alkaline water. Drinking 4 glasses of this alkaline water is
much more effective than 8 glasses of regular, bottled water or
filtered tap water. There are devices called water ionizers that
split alkaline minerals and acid minerals in regular tap water by
quality water ionizer takes in regular tap water which has both
acid and alkaline minerals in it and has a typical pH value of 7.
The system then releases water with a pH value of 9 or higher with
all the alkaline minerals from the original tap water. At the same
time it releases acidic water with a pH value of 5 or lower with all
the acid minerals in the original tap water.
Since this alkaline water has twice as many alkaline minerals as the
original water but NO acid minerals, it is more than twice as potent
as the original water. Inside our body, it will neutralize only
acidic elements and discharge them safely out of the body. Drinking
8 glasses of regular water can leach out acidic wastes as well as
some valuable alkaline minerals such as potassium. That's why
doctors test your blood when you are going through a serious diet
program. With this alkaline water there is no worry about losing
potassium from your system.
