Dr. Otto Warburg was a celebrated scientist and a winner of the Nobel Prize. He also had a carefully-thought-out theory regarding the common origin of cancer that united all forms of the disease. As he phrased it, cancer is fundamentally a problem caused by lack of oxygen. An oxygen shortage throws the body into acidity, a condition in which cancer thrives.
According to Dr. Warburg, cancer cells suffer greatly in an oxygen-rich alkaline environment. (Organisms that display such behavior are referred to as anaerobic.) As evidence, Warburg pointed to the fact that healthy cells require oxygen but turn cancerous when they are deprived of the element for relatively short periods.
This should make it fairly clear that it’s in our best interests to maintain proper pH balance in order to prevent the development of cancer cells. pH balance is a simple figure which records the balance between acid and alkaline compounds in a substance or organism. The human body displays a blood pH level of 7.365 when it’s healthy.
“Advances” in agriculture and food science have had an enormous effect on the way we eat in the past century, and the changes to our diet have led to sharp increases in the occurrence of serious health issues like cancer. Many common modern ingredients like refined grains, processed sugars, and GMOs encourage the production of excessive acid and push the body’s pH balance away from its normal, slightly alkaline equilibrium.
Unbalanced pH levels will inevitably interrupt the body’s normal cellular functions. If those levels stay too acidic for too long, the condition can cause a host of long-term ailments including diabetes, cancer, and osteoporosis. Extended periods of acidic pH levels can also speed up the rate at which body cells age.
Robert O. Young, the author of the book “The pH Miracle,” is a firm believer in Warburg’s theories and the importance of maintaining alkaline pH levels for health. Young notes that it’s not just the body’s own cells that fall into disorder when the pH balance is upset. Many harmful intruders like parasites, viruses, bacteria, and yeast (e.g. Candida) thrive under acidic conditions.
This is why it’s important to keep your body’s pH levels slightly alkaline in order to extend your life and avoid so many serious health problems. Here’s a simple, natural treatment that keeps excess acid levels in check and preserves your proper pH balance:
* 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (organic preferred)
* 1/3 tablespoon of baking soda
The ingredients should be mixed until they start to fizz. Slowly add more baking soda until the fizzing dies down. Pour the mixture into an eight-ounce glass of water.
Drink the remedy quickly. You should notice its positive effects immediately. It can bring swift relief to cases of acidosis or acid reflux. By neutralizing excess acids and bringing your pH levels back to a healthy state, this remedy can help you fight off cancer and other serious diseases.
