Keeping your body at a healthy ph level is important to everyone's general health, but is of utmost importance to cancer patients.
The body needs to be kept in a state of alkaline, as a whole host of health problems can occur if the body becomes too acidic. Many of the foods we eat can upset the ph balance of our bodies, and we should try to stick to foods that will keep the body on the right side of the ph scale.
Raw Food Health noted “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.”
Because so much of the food consumed by the world on a daily basis is heavily processed, the body is often in an acidic state, damaging one's health and gently raising the risk of cancer and other illnesses.
Ready meals, fast food, food packed with additives and chemicals all contribute to the acidic environment in the body.
In order to restore and maintain a healthy alkaline environment in the body, here is some useful information on the foods to include in your diet to restore the health ph balance.
— Your alkaline diet should be primarily based on 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 such as rice in small amounts.
— Also, you can consume as much fruits and vegetables as you want, and 2-4 ounces of grass-fed meat, organic poultry or clean fish, a few times a week.
— Avoid sugar, as cancer cells use more glucose per unit of time than healthy cells. Also, sugar reduces the magnesium content in the body and thus supports cancer. “Natural” sugars like agave and honey should also be eliminated from your diet. Instead, you can consume unsweetened apple sauce, figs, dried apricots, or fresh pineapple.
— Prof. (Emeritus) T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Cornell University Cow, conducted a study which found that dairy is one of the most cancer-causing foods since it contains casein protein.
Hence, dairy products should be avoided in the case of cancer, as due to the high acid production, they may cause inflammation, bone deterioration, and support cancer proliferation.
— Avoid glutinous grains as gluten causes inflammation. You should not consume high-gluten grains such as rye, whole grains, wheat, and pasta, bread, cereals, cookies, cakes, muffins, crackers, 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
