Numerous people who are reading this may have a high acidity level in his or her body. This is due to the typical first world diet of processed foods, refined sugars, and GMOs. However, many people do not know that an acidic body is a breeding ground for cancer.
The genuine reason for cancer has been found long ago, by the Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Otto Warburg. In 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for showing that cancer thrives in anaerobic (without oxygen), or acidic, conditions. In other words, the primary cause of cancer.
Also, the presence of high acidity is a sign that there may be cancer in the body. Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize for his discovery that weakened cell respiration causes cancer due to lack of oxygen at the cellular level. According to Warburg, damaged cell respiration causes fermentation, resulting in low pH (acidity) at the cellular level.
How this happens is clearly illustrated in Warburg’s award-winning study:
A normal healthy cell undergoes an adverse change when it can no longer take in oxygen to convert glucose into energy. In the absence of oxygen, the cell reverts to a primal nutritional program to nourish itself by converting glucose through the process of fermentation. The lactic acid produced by fermentation lowers the cell pH (acid/alkaline balance) and destroys the ability of DNA and RNA to control cell division. The cancer cells then begin to multiply. The lactic acid simultaneously causes severe local pain as it destroys cell enzymes. Cancer appears as a rapidly growing external cell covering, with a core of dead cells.
So, what are we supposed to do?
Since cancer thrives in an acidic environment, one of the easiest methods to combat it is by making your body more alkaline. Acidic foods like red meat, dairy products, GMO’s, refined grains and sugar are believed to contribute towards higher rates of cancer diagnosis and death because they contribute towards acidosis, a state in which your bodily fluids and/or tissues become too acidic.
On the other hand, eating more alkaline foods, like fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help reverse the condition and improve overall health and wellbeing. Staying hydrated, well rested, and calm, and breathing deeply can also improve the condition.
If you believe your body acidity is high, here is a quick and easy home remedy to use. Signs of high body acidity include mucus buildup, joint pain, cold hands or feet, reduced sex drive, chemical sensitivity, heartburn, a metallic taste in the mouth, urine that is smelling strong, and muscular pain.
Furthermore, there are also some suggested symptoms and signs for the early stage of acidity. These are fatigue, acne, panic attacks, premenstrual tension, constipation, diarrhea, headache, tongue that is coated, and bloating. Experiencing any of these symptoms could mean high body acidity.
Baking soda + Himalayan salt drink recipe:
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (aluminum free)
- 1/2 teaspoon of Himalayan salt
- A half glass of purified water
Simply add the baking soda and Himalayan salt to a half glass of water, stir and drink! You can drink this once in the morning and once at night.
The pH of baking soda in water is 8.2, slightly alkaline, The pH of Himalayan pink salt in water is right around 6.50 and if you put the two of these together you have something quite magical. You have a mineral and electrolyte-rich drink that also gives you all of the benefits of baking soda, not to mention the pH of this drink will be right around a pH of 7.35-7.5 or so, this is right in the exact range of pH to balance the pH of your blood which runs through and gives your entire body nutrients, hydrogen and oxygen which are all vital to healing whatever is going on anywhere in your body.
