Dr. Robert Morse: Understanding the Critical Role of Acidosis and a Backed Up Lymphatic System in Health Degeneration
This is one of the most important articles you will ever read to understand why degenerative health conditions, improperly labeled diseases, gradually take hold in the human body as a result of eating a diet which produces an acidic pH in the body (measured in the urine and saliva with pH test paper), and more importantly, in the interstitial fluids which surrounds every cell of the body. This condition is called acidosis. The interstitial fluid is part of the Lymphatic System and is many times larger in volume than the body’s blood supply. Lymph is intended to carry away waste byproducts of cellular respiration and energy production. There are only two cellular fluid systems involved in the functioning of each one of our 100 trillion body cells: 1) blood supplies the “fuel” and 2) the interstitial fluid, the lymphatic system, removes the waste byproducts, the “exhaust” of cellular combustion. As least, that’s the way it’s suppose to work.
Unfortunately, most of us are eating foods which produce an acid pH 24 hours a day, year in and year out. Meats, most grains, starches, and simple carbohydrates (bread, cake, cookies, and cokes), for example, produce an acid pH. This acid bath “burns” and irritates the cell walls of all classes of cellular tissue, including nerves, myelin nerve sheathing, muscles, organ tissue, glandular tissue, etc. Gradually, this continual acidic irritation of cell walls leads to a lowering of cellular efficiency. Over time, this gives way to a degenerative dysfunction of the cell, and that, in turn, leads us into degenerative “disease” conditions (where, in later stages, lymph waste will pass through the deteriorated cell walls and enter into the interior of the cell itself). Equally important, when the lymph system is unable to remove interstitial lymph waste, its presence greatly amplifies the degeneration of cell function by “backing up” the waste sewer line, and that in turn, eventually expresses itself as degenerative diseases with various names from cancer to arthritis.
The kidneys and the skin are the primary organs used by the body to remove lymphatic waste (we will discuss later in this article what has to be done to get the kidneys and the skin to release lymph waste).
Imagine if your home used a septic waste disposal system and you never pumped out the accumulated waste in the septic tank. Eventually, the waste would back up into the septic lines and, in time, you couldn’t even flush the toilet, because the waste would have no where to go. That’s exactly what happens when your lymph system stops removing toxic cellular waste that is discharged by the cell. Lymph waste is itself acidic. When lymph waste cannot exit your body via the kidneys (urine) or skin, it just sits there and accumulates in the interstitial fluid surrounding the cell, adding to the toxic irritation of the cell walls coming from the acidic pH produced by acid-forming foods. When lymph waste is removed properly by the kidneys, the urine will have sediment (lymph waste) in it. This is desirable and should be normal, but most people, along with medical doctors, think that clear urine, free of sediment, is “normal” because the overwhelming majority of people in developed countries like the United States have backed up lymph systems and they don’t know it.
Mark James Gordon put together an excellent 6 minute video that succinctly illustrates the main elements of Dr Morse’s teachings on acidosis, the role of lymph in waste removal, and raw fruit detoxification
Dr Bernard Jensen & Iridology
This backup of lymphatic waste within the interstitial spaces surrounding cells of organs, glands, connective tissue, nerve tissue, etc., is easily seen by examining enlarged photos of the iris of the eye in a relatively new diagnostic methodology called iridology (originally developed in Germany, but made popular in North America by the late Dr. Bernard Jensen [left], 1908-2001).
The left side of the eye photos seen below is that of an 81 year old woman who has been dairy free for most of her life. The photo on the right is that of a dairy farmer from upstate New York who also runs an ice cream manufacturing company. The tightness and closeness of the fibers radiating out from the pupil towards the periphery of the iris show that both of these people have relatively strong genes. Viewed as the face of a clock, each ‘hourly’ division of the iris reveals the cellular conditions in a different part of the body, from the brain (eleven o’clock to one o’clock position) to the lower leg and feet (six o’clock). Body parts are illustrated and identified in Left eye and Right eye iridology charts (right click to open in new tab, or hit ‘save link as’ to download) . Both of these eyes are suppose to be blue, but you would never know it from the dairy farmer on the right because he has consumed so much milk and ice cream, that his lymph fluid has stagnated, backed up, and compacted in every part of his body, showing up as a very thick, white overlay on top of his blue iris fibers.
Today, everyone can take a photo of their own eyes to analyze what’s going on in their body by getting in close and zooming in slightly using your digital camera, a smart phone, or a cell phone camera. Usually, two people work together to take the photos, but you can do it alone using a tripod and the camera’s timer. You need to focus on the iris fibers very carefully to get a good picture. You use a small penlight flashlight to provide the lighting (usually done in a semi-darkened room). There are a number of Youtube videos showing you how to do this, but this one from Marcie and Megan (who work in Dr. Robert Morse’s office) shows you a good technique that works for most people.

Iris analysis is a tremendous diagnostic tool which gives you the ability to see what’s going on inside the body without spending a dime for laboratory tests, MRIs or other expensive procedures. Anyone can learn how to become proficient in iris analysis by carefully studying the iridology charts (there are many different iridology charts available online) and studying the Youtube videos available today explaining the fine details of iris analysis. Dr Morse has many videos on his channel that run anywhere from one to two hours focusing exclusively on iris analysis. In addition, he has over 300 videos devoted to answering questions submitted by Youtube viewers, health club members, Facebook fans, or strangers who hear about his work and send him an email. Many of his Q & A videos include analysis of iris photos sent in by clients and Youtubers. Here are four Youtube tutorials form Dr. Morse on iris analysis to get you started. There are many more on his channel.

Dr. Robert Morse and the Great Lymphatic System
All of the information presented above is taken from the incredibly informative and important video tutorials and friendly talks (over 800 on Youtube) of Dr. Robert Morse, a Naturopathic doctor and master herbalist You can’t help but love this guy because he exudes a loving personality and has a deep commitment to helping people learn how to heal themselves and get back to enjoying life again, with energy and vitality on their journey back to “Wellsville.”
Who is Dr Morse?
He’s a wonderful teacher. His explanations of how the body and degenerative systems work is crystal clear, logical, and meticulous. You easily get hooked on his talks because he explains thing so well; with enormous passion and zeal. His emphasis on the role of acidosis and a backed up, stagnant lymph system in degenerative etiology, puts him in a class all by himself. Nobody, as far as I know, currently talking about alternative medicine therapies (in videos or books) has put the focus on acidosis and the lymph system to the extent that Dr, Robert Morse has. To emphasize the importance of the topic, he titled his five part tutorial devoted to the subject of lymph,
The Great Lymphatic System
I did not realize that the body has to filter out lymph waste through the kidneys and skin in order to remove it completely until I began learning from his videos. I knew it was important for lymph to move in the body, but I didn’t know that its waste had to be excreted through the kidneys and skin. What an eye opener that was for me! After being told, it now seems so obvious that backed up lymph and acidosis are the central players in acidifying the body, which gradually leads into degenerative breakdowns, that the men in white lab coats call diseases (of unknown origin, of course).
Curing Acidosis and a Stagnant Lymph System
The cure for acidosis is to stop consuming acid forming foods such as meats, dairy, eggs, grains, nuts and beans, and in their place, only consume alkaline forming foods. The most powerful, and therefore the most effective, alkaline forming food and lymph system cleaner is fruit; the more astringent, the better. You need to consume a minimum of 80% fruit. Dr Morse recommends fresh berries, melons, and dark colored grapes as the most effective, detoxifying fruits. And you need to find fruit which has sufficiently vine ripened in order to get the maximum benefit.
20% raw vegetables are OK if you don’t have serious health problems and just want to increase vitality and energy, but if you have big health problems, then you have to go with 100% fruit for as long as it takes (months or even a year) to detoxify the lymph system and to restore the body back into regenerating and restoring itself with increased levels of energy and vitality. All of this is explained in great detail in his videos. It’s not easy to switch over to all fruit suddenly because your body is so accustomed to regular food, so you can start by drinking purees of melons, grapes, or berries, or apples, or tangerines, oranges, etc., in the morning and afternoon, and then only have one vegetable meal for supper. You go back to fruit puree for the balance of the evening, until bedtime. After a few weeks, you can try going with 100% fruit for one day and see if you can do it. If so, make one day per week your 100% fruit day. Gradually, work up to two days, etc.
You Also Need to Use Herbs to Help You Do the Job
You can’t break up stagnant lymph and get the GI tract, adrenals, parathyroid, pineal gland and kidneys to begin filtering lymph unless you take herbs and glandulars to stimulate the body sufficiently to break up the entrenched lymph and move its waste out of the body. All of this is covered in the videos. Dr Morse has put together his own herbal blends which you can buy when you become a club member, but if you can’t afford them, he tells you exactly which herbs go into every herbal blend. so you can make your own if you want to. If you make your own, you want to be sure to buy bulk herbs from a trusted source who will deliver herbs that are properly prepared and retain their strong aroma, otherwise they aren’t going to work very well (you can also buy bulk herbs from Dr Morse’s office). There are plenty of Youtube videos on making herbal tinctures, drying fresh herbs, etc. It’s not that hard. You can soak your herbs with 40 or 50% vodka, but to be sure you pull enough out of the herb, I prefer Bacardi 151 because it’s 150 proof and available in most supermarkets. If you live in Arizona, you can buy Ever Clear which is 95% alcohol. Soak your herbs for at least one month.
Two simple things that will help move the lymph through the skin
You will need the herbs, gladulars and fruit diet to get at deep, internal lymph stagnation, but for lymph stuck under the skin, you can get it to move with 1) skin brushing (using a natural bristle brush intended for skin brushing) and 2) taking a shower while alternating back and forth from hot to cold water and back to hot water etc.
If you think about people in Sweden or Finland in wintertime who sit in a hot sauna and then run outside to roll in the snow and then back into the sauna and repeat the routine are going from hot to cold and back to hot, just as we are doing with the hot/cold shower. When they beat their body with a leafed branch of a certain bush, they are accomplishing the same thing as skin brushing. They might not necessarily know that they are moving lymph waste out of the skin, but tradition knows that it’s something healthy for the body.
I have to publicly thank “Dino” for bringing Dr. Morse to my attention a few months ago. After watching just one video, I quickly realized that Robert Morse understands how the body works and has racked up over 40 years of clinical experience helping to heal more than 150,000 people. His great instructional videos are going to help many hundreds of thousands of people around the world to get over their health problems; maybe even millions of people someday.
There are so many great videos from Dr Morse, that it was hard to decide on which one to embed in this article to give you the broadest overview of his most salient thoughts on the widest range of topics. I thought this one would fit the bill. It’s a recent video with French sustitles called,
An Illusion Called Disease (sous-titres et français)

Dr. Morse often mentions insights from a position of advanced spiritual understanding. He has had many out of body experiences and alludes to spiritual universal law in many of his videos. His videos fall into a number of different categories which I will subhead on this page or another page in the near future.

Introduction from Dr Morse posted on his herbal club web site:
No matter what your age, health is one of your greatest assets while you’re living your journey on this planet. For generations, man has been ignorant of his/her body’s proper nutritional needs. It is not difficult to understand the proper foods man should be consuming, which is simply reflected in the physiological design of the human species. Once called omnivores by many, humans are actually frugivores. Man’s diet should be predominantly fruits and vegetables, instead of dead animals, their milks, and dormant foods (grains & beans).
Because of the type of foods and chemicals man has been (and is) consuming, humans have created a state of toxicity, genetic weakness, decay and degeneration of cells never before seen in any species.
Understanding this and what one must do to reverse this is vital in the preservation of our species and one’s experience of True Health. There is so much misinformation, mainly because of big business, that man is confused and frustrated.
Our clinic has been dedicated to truth and assisting humans and animals back to health for over 40 years now. Health becomes very simple when you understand how one loses it. I’ve spent decades assisting thousands in restoring and regenerating the tissues of their physical bodies as well as connecting them with God again.
True happiness is a combination of physical, emotional and mental balance with a broader understanding of who you, as an individual, really are. I hope you enjoy our website and if you need assistance or have questions, please feel free to call our clinic.
May the Blessings Be, Robert Morse, N.D., D.Sc., M.H.
