Can Eating a More Alkaline Diet Cure Cancer?

Veggie PlateThey say there is no cure. They say that chemotherapy and radiation (killing the body’s cells and exposing it to even more cancer causing elements) is the way to possible recovery. Is there any other way to assist the body in eradicating cancer?

The Science behind the Alkaline: This has to do with oxygen levels within the body, at the cellular level. Cancer cells can’t survive where there are higher concentrations of oxygen present, according to Dr. Otto Warburg, a German physiologist, medical doctor, and the 1931 Nobel Prize winner (nominated three times for three separate achievements).

466607133-300Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.”

-Otto H. Warburg

Warburg proved that cancer thrives in an acidic environment which is lacking in oxygen and that cancer can NOT grow nor develop in a body with a PH level of 7.36.

The PH Factor: PH is the measurement of the acidity or alkalinity of any substance, which includes the blood in your body as well as other areas of the body such as the stomach, intestinal tract, mouth, etc. The foods that we eat contribute to the overall PH balance of our bodies, making it either more alkaline, neutral, or more acidic.

How Food Affects the PH in the Body: Our bodies are constantly trying to keep a balanced PH level. If we eat too many acidic foods, the body tries to bring the PH down by pulling calcium from our bones and teeth in order to neutralize the acids. The weird part is that many people drink more milk in order to increase their calcium intake. This is actually a problem, because milk is an acidic food which in turn causes calcium to be leached from our bones! Processed foods, animal products, cooked foods, fast foods, etc. are all very acidic. We tend to eat far too many of these types of foods, which causes our bodies to constantly fight to keep our PH in balance. Too much acid forming foods will eventually disrupt our overall PH, creating an acidic and toxic environment where cancer and bacteria can thrive.

Eating to Alkalize: To reverse the effects of high acids, toxin accumulation, and to create a PH environment of 7.36 – 7.45 we need to eat more alkaline foods.

  • Dark green vegetables such as kale, spinach, broccoli, asparagus, lettuce, and okra.
  • Fruits such as dates, melons, watermelons, grapes, papaya, kiwi, figs, raisins, apples, pears and berries.
  • Grains such as amaranth, millet, wild rice, and quinoa.
  • Alkaline sweeteners to include are stevia, pure maple syrup, raw honey, and raw sugar.
  • Olive oil, garlic, onions, parsley, and herbal teas.

There are many more foods included in an alkaline diet. The foods above are just some of the most alkaline ones. You can find a complete list here.

Acidic Foods to Avoid: Eating less of these foods or avoiding them completely is the best way to reverse an acidic body and promote healing.

  • Most meats are very acidic and should be eaten in smaller quantities. The body can onlyFast Food process and use 3-4 ounces of protein at a time, anyway. Beef, veal, pork, and eggs are the most acidic of the meats.
  • Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, NutraSweet, etc. are very acidic and should be completely avoided.
  • Black tea, liquor, beer, coffee, white sugar, wine, and fruit juices should be avoided.
  • Milk, hard cheeses, cream, etc.
  • White bread, whole-grain bread, and other processed breads
  • Nuts such as pistachios, peanuts, and cashews
  • Butter, corn-oil, and margarine
  • All fast foods that are fried, breaded, etc. should be completely avoided

One other important fact to remember is that cooking your veggies kills a lot of the nutritional value and increases the acidity of the food. It’s best to lightly steam veggies, avoid the microwave at all costs, and eat plenty of raw foods.

Getting healthy and beating cancer should be approached with the whole body in mind, not just by cutting out the cancer, or blasting it with radiation. Heal the whole body through foods, and get rid of cancer for life!
