Is Alkaline the Right Option for You?

Is Alkaline the Right Option for You?

Do You or Someone You Know Have Cancer?

Cancer can strike anyone. The American Cancer Society estimated that in the US alone 1,685,210 people were diagnosed with cancer in 2016. The cause varies widely – from exposure to environmental toxins and pollutants, to DNA mutations and genetic predisposition, to poor diet and lifestyle choices. Chances are someone you know has been affected by cancer.

This year, more than…10 million people worldwide are expected to be diagnosed with cancer, a disease commonly believed to be preventable. Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle.

Cancer is a Preventable Disease that Requires Major Lifestyle Changes / Anand, P., Kunnumakara, A.B., Sundaram, C. et al. Pharm Res (2008) 25: 2097. doi:10.1007/s11095-008-9661-9

Are You Searching For Answers?

Where do you start? Which direction do you go? Thoroughly researching your options is never a waste of time. The best plan of action is not the same for everyone. No matter the cause, all cancers have certain key characteristics in common, and arming yourself with this knowledge is the greatest asset to your health and your future.

The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen (oxidation of sugar) in normal body cells by fermentation of sugar.

Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg (The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer)

Cancer does not cause cells to turn anaerobic, but rather it is stabilized anaerobic (without oxygen) metabolism that is the single cause that turns the normal cells that depend on aerobic metabolism into cancer cells. The proposed cure, as an alternative to protocols that focus on killing the cancer cells, is to restart aerobic metabolism.

David W. Gregg, PhD. (Proposed Common Cause and Cure for All Forms of Cancer)

Indeed millions of experiments in man…have shown that cell respiration is impaired if the active groups of the respiratory enzymes are removed from the food; and that cell respiration is repaired at once, if these groups are added again to the food. No way can be imagined that is scientifically better founded to prevent and cure a disease, the prime cause of which is an impaired respiration.

Dr.Otto Heinrich Warburg (The Way to Prevention of Cancer)

Have You Already Started Conventional Treatments, But Want To Do More?

There is no doubt that chemotherapy and radiation can take a toll on the body – the treatment may be worse than the disease at times. Chemotherapy not only weakens the immune system, leading to increased risk of infections, but it also damages the body's ability to digest food and extract needed nutrition. Radiation can cause collateral damage such as bone loss, organ damage, secondary cancers. Sometimes the need for action outweighs the risks involved. Other times, a wait and see approach, with regards to these conventional treatments, is better. Either way, there are things that you can do now to improve quality of life while getting back on the road to health.

There is something that every cancer patient should hear from their oncologist when they are first diagnosed…that by making certain dietary changes, they could increase their chances of healing from cancer dramatically, no matter what course of treatment they pursue.

Nancy Elizabeth Shaw (Nutritional Healing from Cancer: The Fundamentals of an Alkaline Diet)

Establishing of a special diet for the cancer patient is suggested. In addition, avoidance of certain foods is recommended to counteract mucus production of cancer cells. Evaluation of the nutrient content of certain diets in regions with low incidence of cancer has advanced the use of certain alkali metals, i.e., rubidium and cesium, as chemotherapeutic agents.

Or Maybe You Are Looking For Other Alternatives?

When it comes to alternative cancer options, it is easy to get overwhelmed by too many choices. One thing is certain: if you have not done so already, the single most important thing you can do right now is to change your diet to an alkaline-style diet. Everything we eat affects the health and well-being of our body. Improving our diet can actually improve our health. An alkaline-style diet involves eating more alkaline-rich vegetables and fruits, while eliminating intake of all added sugars and processed foods.

Cancer cells use more glucose (sugar) per unit of time than other cells. Sugar metabolism creates acid, which also supports cancer progression.

Nancy Elizabeth Shaw (Nutritional Healing from Cancer: The Fundamentals of an Alkaline Diet)

The electrons in our food are truly the element of life. It is then fascinating to investigate our food, with regard to this feature.

Why Alkaline?

Remember, all cancers have certain key characteristics in common. What are those characteristics? Unlike healthy cells which have a very efficient aerobic (with oxygen) metabolism, cancer cells use anaerobic (without oxygen) metabolism. Anaerobic metabolism relies on the fermentation of glucose (sugar) for fuel, which is a very inefficient process that not only creates an energy drain on the body, but also creates an excess of acidic lactic acid as a waste product. Acids – the opposite of alkaline – are measured at the low end of the pH scale. Low oxygen = anaerobic metabolism = glucose fermentation = acidic waste = low pH. An alkaline diet addresses all of these common cancer characteristics.

The nutritional approach stimulates cancer cells to revert from anaerobic back to aerobic metabolism, causing them to revert from cancer cells back to normal cells.

David W. Gregg PhD (Proposed Common Cause and Cure for All Forms of Cancer)

Evaluation of the nutrient content of certain diets in regions with low incidence of cancer has advanced the use of certain alkali metals, i.e., rubidium and cesium, as chemotherapeutic agents. The rationale for this approach, termed the "high pH" therapy, resides in changing the acidic pH range of the cancer cell by cesium (or rubidium) towards weak alkalinity in which the survival of the cancer cell is endangered, and the formation of acidic and toxic materials, normally formed in cancer cells, is neutralized and eliminated.

H. E. Sartori, M.D. (Nutrients and Cancer: An Introduction to Cesium Therapy)

In growing tumours the oxygen concentration is critically low. Mammalian cells need oxygen for the efficient oxidative dissimilation of sugars and fatty acids…In the absence of sufficient oxygen they have to switch to anaerobic dissimilation…Growth of these tumour cells will require about 40 times more glucose than it should require in the presence of sufficient oxygen.

Is Diet Enough?

Diet is the #1 most important thing you can get started with right away, but it may not be enough. Why? When it comes to cancer, it is best to approach the problem from multiple angles. The goal is to slow cancer growth while improving immune system function in order to help give your body a fighting chance. One option, High pH Therapy, focuses on using a combination of diet and supplements to alkalize the body, increase oxygen content, and support the immune system, which is the body's natural defense system. A healthy immune system is better able to help repair and rebuild damaged cells. Your state of mind is very important. There are no guarantees, but with a positive outlook, anything is possible.

Lack of oxygen has long been suspected in carcinogenesis because it leads to an anaerobic metabolism where, essentially, glucose is converted into lactic acid and the pH in the cancer cells becomes acidic. The acidic pH because of lack of O2 may cause breakdown of RNA and DNA and damage the cellular control mechanisms involved. The development of acidic toxins usually will lead to the destruction of cell structures. Therefore, reversing this condition requires adequate oxygenation

H. E. Sartori, M.D. (Nutrients and Cancer: An Introduction to Cesium Therapy)

Mass spectrographic and isotope studies have shown that potassium, rubidium, and especially cesium are most efficiently taken up by cancer cells. Where cell mitosis ceases and the life of the cell is short. Tests on mice fed cesium and rubidium showed marked shrinkage in the tumor masses.
