Effect of Your pH on the Development and Growth of Cancer

The human body’s entire metabolic process depends on one critical factor – the pH of the plasma fluids. The pH scale is very simple. The lower the readings on the pH scale are acidic and the higher readings are more alkaline. Through homeostasis, the body maintains a healthy plasma pH of 7.4. Although the pH of the body will fluctuate with meals, exercise, stress, hormones and sleep, a healthy and balanced saliva pH should be between 7.0 to 7.5.

A simple principle to apply concerning health and disease is that a low pH creates an environment conducive to disease and a higher, alkaline pH promotes health.

There are key factors that can create an acidic environment in the body:

  1. Eating acidic foods such as meats, dairy, sugar and refined grains
  2. Extreme physical exertion
  3. Emotional and mental stress

When the scales tip in favor of an acidic micro-environment, a domino effect is created. Toxins are not properly excreted which creates a favorable environment for pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and yeasts to thrive. Also, prolonged irritation of the cell membrane from environmental carcinogens blocks the intake of much needed oxygen. When the cell lacks oxygen it creates lactic acid and becomes acidic. This creates the perfect environment for cancer cells to develop and multiply.

Studies conducted at the University of Bari in Italy clearly demonstrated that a hallmark of all tumors, regardless of their origin or background, is their acidic environment. In fact, tumor progression increased with an acidic pH and hypoxia, or a low oxygen level.

Women that are on a chemotherapeutic regime should also be aware that their acidic pH may be adversely affecting the chemosensitivity of the breast cancer cells. A recent study conducted in China indicated that a key factor in drug resistance to chemotherapy was the acidic environment of the cancer cells.

Promising research conducted at the University of Arizona, department of Pharmacology supports the theory that alkalizing the body with baking soda holds promise as a natural treatment for breast cancer. Their research demonstrated that oral intake of baking soda (NaHCO3) selectively increased the pH of tumors and significantly reduced spread of metastatic breast cancer in mice. They concluded, “…the dramatic effect of bicarbonate therapy on the formation of Breast Cancer metastases in this model system warrants further investigation.”

The equivalent intake of the baking soda solution for a human being weighing 154 pounds would be about 2.5 tsps. of baking soda per day. Since the stomach is very acidic in nature, drink the baking soda solution on an empty stomach. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda in 8 ounces of clean water. Adding the juice of an organic lemon improves the flavor.

The most accurate way to check your pH is to check it first thing in the morning, upon arising. Before you brush your teeth or drink water, spit on a pH strip and record the reading. Urinate in a small cup and measure the pH of the urine. Ideally, the pH of the saliva should be above 7 and the urine should be between 6.4 – 6.8.

Measuring your pH is a very simple way of monitoring the internal dynamics of your health on a cellular level. Being proactive with prevention will result in increased energy, vibrant health and peace of mind.

We Lost the War on Cancer – Review of Alternative Cancer Therapies

we lost the war on cancer Effect of Your pH on the Development and Growth of Cancer

We have lost the war on cancer. At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.

The cancer industry is probably the most prosperous business in the United States. In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39 percent increase to $173 billion by 2020.

The simple fact is that the cancer industry employs too many people and produces too much income to allow a cure to be found. All of the current research on cancer drugs is based on the premise that the cancer market will grow, not shrink.

John Thomas explains to us why the current cancer industry prospers while treating cancer, but cannot afford to cure it in Part I. In Part II, he surveys the various alternative cancer therapies that have been proven effective, but that are not approved by the FDA.

Chili Pepper’s Remarkable Role in Pain Relief and Reducing Tumors

Chili Pepper’s Remarkable Role in Pain Relief and Reducing Tumors

Capsaicin, found in chili peppers, helps alleviate pain in part by depleting your body’s supply of substance P, a chemical component of nerve cells that transmits pain signals to your brain. It also works by de-sensitizing sensory receptors in your skin.

Capsaicin has been shown to activate cell receptors in your intestinal lining, creating a reaction that lowers the risk of tumors. Capsaicin has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and has even shown some promise for cancer treatment.

FDA Targets Essentials Oils: Sees EOs as Threat to New Ebola Drugs?

FDA Targets Essentials Oils: Sees EOs as Threat to New Ebola Drugs?

The FDA issued warning letters this week to the two largest distributors of essentials oils in the United Sates, Young Living and dōTERRA. The FDA is claiming that their products are being marketed as unapproved drugs. The companies have to remove all health claims and take corrective actions, or face very serious legal action, which can include armed federal marshals coming to their warehouses and seizing all of their inventory.

This is of course not the first time that the FDA has gone after companies selling natural products, products that could never be patented, for making health claims about those products. They have a history of issuing warning letters against the producers and marketers of such things as walnuts, cranberries, elderberry juice, coconut oil, and many more. The FDA requires that companies selling natural products and making health claims get their permission first, by going through a lengthy and costly drug approval process.

These two companies have been around for many years, and the independent distributors have been making health claims for the essential oils for a very long time. So why is the FDA acting now?

While conventional dentistry is pouring chemicals into our mouths, ancient Ayurveda has been preventing gingivitis and periodontal disease with natural oils for thousands of years.

Ayurveda has been recommending oil pulling and gum massage for thousands of years to help prevent gum disease and plaque build up. Yet the chemical industry is convinced their antibacterial mouthwashes and rinses are the answer. The heck with ‘superstitious’ ancient therapies – they say.

However, modern research is now proving the oldest continuous medicine was not wrong about oil pulling or gum massage.

Are GMO Foods, Vaccines, and Big Pharma Producing an Infertile Generation?

The U.S. fertility rates are at all-time record lows. Are we watching the leading edge of a slowly moving tidal wave of infertility? I wasn’t sure what is really happening with human fertility until I took a hard look at the data and the science. I now believe that there is strong reason to be concerned about the emerging trend of infertility. What is causing the current generation of child-bearing aged adults to become infertile?
