Knowledge of pH balance is not only important for cancer patients only, but for every human being in general.
As humans, we need to maintain an alkaline environment in order to stay fit, healthy and cancer free.
According to Raw Food Health
” The human body goes to great lengths to maintain a slightly alkaline PH of 7.35, but poor diet and stress can change the PH to an acidic one in which disease can thrive.”
Maintaining an alkaline diet is not so easy in today’s modern society. We are surrounded by processed foods, fast foods and microwave meals, snacks, GMO’s and pesticide-poisoned fruit and veg – all of them extremely unhealthy in the case of cancer.
The following dietary changes are the most important:
Unhealthy food causes pH imbalance and creating an acidic environment which is perfect for creating cancer cells. On the other hand, alkaline diet will restore the balance and fight inflammation.
– Our alkaline diet should contain 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,like rice in small amounts.
– Additionally, this diet includes 2-4 ounces of grass-fed meat, organic poultry or clean fish, a few times a week.
– You should avoid sugar, because cancer cells use more glucose per unit of time than healthy cells. Moreover, sugar reduces the magnesium content in the body, and contributes to cancer. Also, “natural” sugars, such as agave and honey should also be eliminated from your diet. You should consume unsweetened apple sauce, figs, dried apricots, or fresh pineapple.
– A study conducted by the (Emeritus) T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Cornell University Cow, showed that dairy is one of the most cancer-causing foods, because it contains casein protein. Because of the high acid production, dairy products should be avoided.They may lead to inflammation, bone deterioration, and support cancer proliferation.
– Gluten leads to inflammation, so avoid glutinous grains. Eliminate high-gluten grains like whole grains, rye, wheat, as well as cereals, pasta, cakes, bread, muffins, crackers, cookies and other baked goods.
You should replace them with non-gluten grains such as quinoa, buckwheat, and amaranth. Additionally, eliminate “gluten free” prepared products, since they have added sugar or processed oils.
