Some say that an alkaline diet reduces the risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease and cancer, as well as boosts energy and promotes weight loss. Some say it’s a myth. But for some reason, there are hundreds of case studies and antidotal reports where people swear by it’s effectiveness to heal.
In the 1930’s, an interesting natural cancer treatment was proposed as a simple, effective answer to cancer – almost any cancer.
This treatment approach is called alkaline therapy or pH therapy and is based in part on observations of cultures without significant incidence of cancer and in part on scientific observations of and experimentation with cellular metabolism.
The principles of pH therapy are very simple. The metabolism of cancer cells has a very narrow pH tolerance for cellular proliferation (mitosis), which is between 6.5 and 7.5.
As such, if you can interfere with cancer cell metabolism by either lowering or raising the internal cancer cell pH, you can theoretically stop cancer progression.
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 put stress on normal cells and cause a lot of pain.
An alkaline diet based on vegetables and fruits creates a less-than-optimal environment for cancer proliferation, while at the same time strengthens the immune function and supports healthy cells in the body through improved nutrition.
15 Most Alkaline Foods You Can Eat:
Avocados help the absorption of nutrients from vegetables and fruits, control the levels of cholesterol and make your heart stronger.
By balancing blood sugar levels, protecting the heart, and improving digestion, bananas are a true super food.
Berries improve the skin and are a good food to slow down the aging process. They help with chronic health disorders and keep a sharp memory as you grow old.
Courtesy improving the blood circulation as a result of high iron, broccoli keeps the heart healthy, improves the health of bones, and reduces the levels of cholesterol.
Great for heart health, diabetes prevention, and energy boosting, it’s also a great source of vitamins, iron, and protein.
Carrots improve your thought process and your eyesight due to their beta-carotene content (a group of pigments) which protect you against free radical damage.
Great for your heart and loaded with anti-inflammatory properties, cauliflower is also loaded with vitamins and nutrients.
Rich in fiber, antioxidants and vitamin E, flax seed is a top alkaline food.
In addition to reducing anxiety and hypertension, grapes lower the risk of lung, prostate, colon, esophageal, pancreatic, endometrial, and mouth cancer as a result of key polyphenols(antioxidants).
Great for kidney stones, lemons also fight cancer, prevent constipation and high blood pressure.
With a pH averaging 8.5, melons are also great for rehydrating your body.
