THE IMPORTANCE OF ALKALINITY IN THE BODY // TESTING YOUR OWN pH LEVELS
“EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO HAS CANCER, HAS A pH THAT IS TOO ACIDIC.”
— Dr. Otto Warburg. DR. WARBURG won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931 for proving that cancer cannot survive in an alkalized, oxygen rich environment
Our pH is measured on a scale ranging from 0-14 with 0 being the most acidic and 14 being the most alkaline. In order to transport oxygen throughout the body, our blood needs to maintain a pH level of approximately 7.35. Even though our bodies store excess alkaline reserves to buffer acids, if you’re eating a conventional diet filled with pesticides and processed foods, your reserve has likely depleted.
As Keiichi Morishita explains in his book "Hidden Truth of Cancer," as your blood's pH becomes too acidic, your body will move this acidic substances from the blood to your cells, allowing the blood to return to a healthy pH level of 7.35. As a result, all of these cells become too acidic and in some cases, begin to die. The cells that survive however, become abnormal cells that cannot correspond with your brain or DNA memory code, typically referred to as “malignant” cells, which will continuously grow. These are cancerous cells (source).
While lowering cancer cell pH (increasing acidity) is effective against cancer cell mitosis in the lab, increasing acid levels in the live body of a cancer patient puts stress on normal cells and causes a lot of pain. So the proposed alkaline therapy for people is a “high pH therapy” and has been developed to normalize the intracellular pH of the cancer patient’s body through elimination of latent acidosis, while increasing the pH of cancer cells to a range above 7.5. According to published research, it is at that pH they revert to a normal cellular apoptosis cycle (programmed cell death). (source)
Ideally, this approach begins with an alkaline diet. There is general agreement amongst natural healers and medical professionals that changing a cancer patient’s diet is extremely helpful when someone is confronted with a cancer diagnosis.
The principles of pH therapy are very simple, according to many. The metabolism of cancer cells does have a very narrow pH tolerance for cellular proliferation ( between 6.5 and 7.5). If you can interfere with cancer cell metabolism by either lowering or raising the internal cancer cell pH, you can theoretically stop cancer progression. (source)
Viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, candida and cancer cells thrive in an acidic, low oxygen, low pH (anything below neutral pH 7) environment. An acidic pH can result from many things, such as emotional stress or toxic overload, but most commonly results from an acid-forming diet. The most alkaline foods are fruits and veggies (spirulina, chlorella, lemons, kale, brussel sprouts, kale etc.) When our pH levels are too acidic, The body will compensate for acid by using alkaline minerals, like sodium from the stomach, or calcium from our bones. This is the cause of Osteoporosis and most other chronic diseases. If there are not enough minerals in the diet to compensate, a build-up of acids in the cells will occur.
HOW TO TEST YOUR OWN pH LEVELS
DId you know that you can easily test your pH levels at home?
Just head to your local drugstore or online retailer and pick up a pack of pH test strips HERE.
Once you own a pack of pH indicator strips, youre halfway there. Ideally, you will want to test your pH levels at approx. the same tome each morning. This part is very important - Test your urine's pH level first thing in the morning before you eat or drink anything. After digesting your food and drink throughout the night, your body is more likely to display accurate pH results. Hold the tai lend of the pH strip while you urinate and make sure to get a few drops on the strip. Simply wait a few moments for the pH indicatior color to change and compare it to the pH key that was included with your strips. Viola!
Testing your Saliva - Your saliva's pH should be similar to your urine. Test first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything. Fill your mouth with saliva and then swallow it. Repeat this step again to ensure your spit is clean, and then place some saliva on the pH strip.
