pH Levels and Overall Health - Mechanism of Cancer

  1. WHY IS THE pH IMPORTANT

    Although pH is in actuality a measure of the degree of Hydrogen (H) ions in a substance or solution, it is best recognized as a measure of the acid/alkaline balance of anything. (0-7 is acid; 7 is neutral; 7-14 is alkaline or base.) In another sense, though, it is also a measure of the available (unbound) oxygen in something -- the higher the pH, the more available oxygen there is in your body. A proper alkaline environment in your blood provides literally thousands of times the oxygen needed for all bodily functions. Proper pH by itself is a major factor in optimizing health and preventing disease (cancer, for example, thrives in an acid environment), but it also directly impacts the efficacy of proteolytic enzymes in your body.

    Consider these facts

    ∑ most of the cells in your body need oxygen to produce energy (atp)

    ∑ cancer cells need an environment with little oxygen

    ∑ beneficial bacteria need oxygen

    ∑ harmful bacteria, virus and fungus require little or no oxygen

    ∑ enzymes require specific pH to function

    Get the picture. A healthy body needs ample oxygen and the pH in large part controls the oxygen.

  2. WHAT DETERMINES YOUR pH?


    You are constantly creating acidic waste as a result of metabolism most common is carbon dioxide and lactic acid. When you metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, various acids are produced. Proteins, for example, produce sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid. Carbohydrates and fats produce acetic acid and lactic acid. Cancer and low oxygen can cause elevated lactic acid levels.

    Minerals such as cesium, sodium, calcium, potassium, and magnesium when taken into the body are used to offset the acidic waste. Essentially, your body uses these minerals to combine with the acids and turn them into pH neutral mineral salts. These salts can then be safely eliminated through your kidneys.

    There has to be a balance between the acid and the minerals in order to maintain a proper pH. The body uses what are known as pH buffering systems in order to accomplish this. Taking in the right amounts of minerals, breathing in enough oxygen and making sure the buffering system is functioning properly will ensure that your pH is at a healthy level. If you lack minerals in your diet (common in modern diets), if you breath too shallow and donít exercise then your body's natural buffering system is deficient. 

    Diet also plays a role in pH, certain foods will acidify the body while others will alkalize it. A rule of thumb is that plants are alkaline and everything else will acidify. The bottom line is that diet changes your body's pH. And most of us eat a highly acidic diet (meat, dairy, cooked grains, and most bottled drinks).

  3. HOW DO I TEST MY SALIVA pH

    The best way to test your Saliva ph is by using litmus pH paper. Wait at least 2 hours after eating. Fill your mouth with saliva and then swallow it. Do this again to help ensure that the saliva is clean. Then the third time, put some saliva onto pH paper. The pH paper should turn blue. This indicates that your saliva is slightly alkaline at a healthy pH of 7.4. If it is not blue, compare the color with the chart that comes with the pH paper. If your saliva is acid (below pH of 7.0) wait two hours and repeat the test.

  4. WHAT DOES pH MEAN

    pH means potential hydrogen atoms that an element or compound can absorb. The body's pH is measured from 0 to 10. With pH 0 being the most acidic, pH 10 being the most alkaline and pH 7 being neutral. Therefore, 6.9 (slightly acid) and 7.1 (slightly alkaline) are almost neutral and the farther you move from 7 determines how acidic or alkaline you are.

  5. HOW CAN YOU CHANGE YOUR pH

    *eat a diet which is 80% alkaline

    *exercise

    *practice deep breathing

     *Take supplements of alkalizing minerals

    *drink water with lemon juice or organic apple cider vinegar

  8. WHICH SUPPLEMENTS RAISE YOUR pH?

    The right minerals are extremely important in creating an alkaline environment. Potassium for example has a pH of 14. The problem is getting the right form of potassium and an estimated 74 other minerals into the body and especially into a microscopic cell. Nature gave plants the metabolism to break down a rock into an individual ion of a particular mineral and basically take an inert compound and turn it into part of a living plant. We donít have this metabolism and have always depended on the plants we eat to furnish us with these necessary minerals. The problem we encounter is the land the plants we eat are grown in is largely devoid of minerals. Therefore the plants are missing many of these valuable nutrients. We have resorted to mining rocks and pulverizing them so they might be absorbed. It has been largely an unsuccessful effort. There are some minerals which you can now obtain which are identical to those found in plants. These minerals are water soluble, ionic (negatively charged) and the particle sized to the angstrom. An angstrom is one million times smaller than the normally sized micron minerals you get in pill form.

  9. WHAT IS THE IDEAL pH

    Research reveals that cancer goes into remission at a pH of 7.4 and we believe this is the proper pH for most people. If you have cancer, you will want to force your pH to 8.4 where it has been shown cancer will die. If you doubt this, think about a shark. It has survived for a long time and is very dangerous. It is not invulnerable however, and can be killed. You could poison it or cut it but you could also kill it by changing its environment. Move it from salt water to fresh water and inside a week it will die. Cancer too must have an acidic environment to thrive if not survive. Change its environment and it to will die. Researchers have identified other chronic diseases which flourish in an acid body, which respond to changing to alkaline. Some have even gone so far as to say you must alkalize or die.
