Alkaline & Acidic

Alkaline & Acidic

Modern science and research have made a clear conclusion that cancer cells tend to grow well within an acidic environment compared to an alkaline environment. Cancer cells certainly need an environment that is conducive. Most carcinogenic activities or cancer activities are catalyzed by low PH levels in our body. A low PH level refers to an acidic environment, and a high PH level refers to an alkaline one. Cancer cells love an acidic environment, and the reason for that is there is a lack of oxygen at the cellular level in an acidic environment. A disrupted alkaline level can manifest headache, nasal congestion, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, nervousness, cysts, and excess mucous production, etc.

PH is the balance between acid and alkaline compositions which is generally acquired in the body rather than natural phenomena depending on our diet. Some diets promote more acidic environments, and others can be alkaline which generally hinders the growth of cancer cells. However, that doesn’t mean that cancer cells completely die in an alkaline environment, but at least they could be lethargic. In general, cancer cells lie dormant until the body becomes alkalized and the pH level reaches higher and thereafter, these malignant cells slowly die off.

The goal for a diet for a cancer patient is to help in maintaining a normal pH level of around 7.35-7.45. However, maintaining an alkaline setting is most pivotal because an alkaline environment helps to regulate and maintain a higher oxygen level at the molecular level and keep the balance on the part of minerals. Minerals play a vital role in preventing the cancerous process.

What reduces an alkaline environment or brings down the oxygen levels in cells?

  • Consuming sugar, meats, fast foods, processed foods, sodas, caffeine, and alcohol can create an acidic environment.

  • Lack of essential fatty acids that cell membranes need in order to transfer oxygen and nutrition into cells.

  • Lack of movement and exercise eventually slows down the blood and lymph flows which create a poor system for oxygen transfer into cells.

  • Over-toxicity in the body causes difficulty for cells to breathe normally and makes it harder for cells to remove waste as they did before at the cellular level.

Alkalizing diets

  • Most common alkalizing diets include fresh fruits of the citrus class, various types of legumes, blueberries, mushrooms, nuts, green leafy vegetables, tubers like potatoes, nuts, and low sugar based fruits, etc.

  • Stop consuming the standard American diet including products that are heavy in sugar, meat, processed food, sodas, caffeine, and alcohol.

  • Try to maintain an 80% alkaline diet and 20% acidic diet.

  • Try to maintain your body PH between 7.2 and 7.4; people whose body PH is too acidic or too alkaline are less resistant to sicknesses and diseases.

  • Avoid fast foods and eat organic food.

  • Our body needs essential healthy fats, such as omega 3 fat, cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, fish oil, and avocado oil.
