An Alkaline Diet and Cancer I have decided to talk about having an Alkaline diet today. I feel it is very important and will play a huge part in your recovery. Cancer loves an acidic body. Why? Because the cancer feeds off acid. Each cell in your body takes in oxygen, glucose and nutrients which pushes out the toxins from your body. The cells are protected by your immune system. Unfortunately as the body gets acidic your immune system cannot fight the toxins and your cells lose the capacity to take in the right amount of oxygen and that’s when they go bad. This is when the cell gets affected by cancer. Cancer will not live in your body if your alkaline level is at a pH level of 7.4. The higher the pH level gets, the more cancer and the cancer cells will die. Cancer cells will not live in a high oxygen environment. They only thrive if your oxygen level is very low and the acid content in your body is very high. So – keep your alkaline level high and your body and immune system will stay strong. This leads to your cells getting plenty of oxygen and discarding their toxins. Cancer will not thrive or multiply under these ideal conditions. An alkaline diet will not only benefit cancer, it will fight many dis-eases. You can purchase alkaline supplements and they are a good way of introducing alkaline into your diet. But remember, fresh is best. Steamed or raw vegetables are best and they include – Avocado, Barley grass, Barley, Cabbage, Lettuce, Cucumber, Dandelion, Endive, Beetroot, Garlic, Wheat Grass, White Beans, Tomatoes (I can hear you saying “But they’re acid”. Yes they are until they get into your stomach and they become alkaline), Lemons, Celery, Broccoli (AND LOTS OF IT), Limes, Squash, Spinach, Red Cabbage, Capsicums, Carrots, Cauliflower, Green beans, Leeks, Onions, Turnips. Basically any vegetable is good for you, but I do recommend that you eat less potatoes. Try not to have them on your plate every night. You will be amazed at how quickly you will feel healthier, especially if you avoid the red meat. In a later article I will list the vegetables in categories, but for now this will be a good start for you. Get healthy and feel the difference!
