Dr. Otto H Warburg, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1931, discovered the real cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency. Oxygen deficiency leads to an acidic environment existing within the human body.
Dr. Warburg discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic meaning that they do not need oxygen and subsequently cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen – as found in an alkaline state.
“All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception. Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”
Diet, undoubtedly has a major role to play in maintaining balanced pH levels in the body. PH balance is the balance of acid and alkaline in all fluids and cells throughout your body. Your body must balance the blood’s pH levels at a slightly alkaline level of 7.365 in order to survive.
If we consider that the typical American diet consists primarily of toxic and acid-forming foods like processed sugars, refined grains and genetically modified organisms, then it is not surprising to learn that most Americans have an unhealthy acidic pH level in their bodies.
Imbalanced pH levels can interrupt cellular activities and major bodily functions. Fluctuating pH levels can lead to a great deal of serious health problems including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and severe heartburn. If your body is held in an acidic state for a long period of time, it can drastically increase the aging process.
Dr Otto Warburg states that most health problems are derived from an acidic pH level in the body. Parasites, viruses, and candida thrive in acidic environments but an alkaline environment neutralizes bacteria and other pathogens.
Therefore, maintaining pH balance is one of the important tools to optimizing your health.
Home Remedy To Maintain pH Balance
- 1/3 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or organic apple cider vinegar
- 8oz water
Mix the ingredients together. The acid/base combination will immediately begin to fizz. Keep adding baking soda until the fizz stops and then fill the glass with 8 oz. water.
Drink the mixture all at once. This home remedy will help neutralize the pH and create an alkaline-forming environment within your body. It will help mellow stomach acid and reduce acidosis.
