Knowledge of pH balance is not only essential for cancer patients only, but for every human being in general. In order to stay healthy, you need to maintain an alkaline environment in the body, since the overall health is significantly affected by it.
According to experts, the human body goes to great lengths to maintain a slightly alkaline pH of 7.35. However, poor diet and stress can change the pH to an acidic one in which disease can thrive.
Unfortunately, maintaining an alkaline diet is not so easy in today’s modern society. We are surrounded by fast foods, processed foods, GMO’s, microwave meals, snacks, and pesticide-poisoned fruits and vegetables, all of them extremely unhealthy in the case of cancer.
Moreover, such an unhealthy diet produces an acidic environment in the body and thus greatly increases the risk of cancer and numerous other health problems.
Hence, it is of high importance to follow a healthy, alkaline diet in order to restore the balance in the body, stimulate healing, and support your well-being.
We provide some highly useful information on how to restore the pH balance in the body and maintain an alkaline environment. If you stick to this alkaline diet, you will be more able to combat inflammation and various other health conditions.
The following dietary changes are the most important:
Your alkaline diet should be primarily based on organic leafy green vegetables, cauliflower and cabbages, broccoli, herbs and spices, root vegetables, beans, nuts and seeds, lentils and peas, onions, garlic, leek and chives, and non-gluten grains such as rice in small amounts.
Plus, you can include 2 to 4 ounces of grass-fed meat, clean fish, or organic poultry at least 2 times per week and as much fresh fruits and vegetables as you can.
Avoid glutinous grains since gluten leads to inflammation. Eliminate high-gluten grains like whole grains, rye, wheat, as well as cereals, pasta, cakes, bread, muffins, crackers, cookies and other baked goods. Alternatively, consume non-gluten grains like rice, quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth and millet. Moreover, you should avoid gluten-free prepared products, as they contain added sugar or processed oils.
You need to remember that you have to avoid sugar, as cancer cells thrive on glucose. Moreover, sugar lowers the magnesium content in the body and thus supports cancer. Natural sugars like agave and honey should also be eliminated from your diet. Instead, you can consume unsweetened apple sauce, figs, dried apricots, or fresh pineapple.
Prof. (Emeritus) T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Cornell University Cow, conducted a study which found that dairy is one of the most cancer-causing foods since it contains casein protein. Therefore, dairy products should be avoided in the case of cancer, as due to the high acid production, they may cause inflammation, bone deterioration, and support cancer proliferation.
