Extreme acidity in the body is the leading cause of cancer, as discovered by Dr Otto H Warburg, a Noble Prize Laureate. Mainly, cancer cells don’t breathe oxygen, as they are anaerobic, so they are not capable of surviving in an alkaline environment of the body, which is rich in oxygen.
Having said that, the healthy cells need oxygen to thrive and reproduce.
Ph balance is the balance of the acidity and alkalinity in the body and is primarily affected by what we eat.
Ann Wigmore, the founder of the renowned Hippocrates Health Institute, said:
“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”
A balanced human body has a pH value of 7.365, indicating that it needs to be somewhat alkaline, to function optimally.
Yet, modern diets are full of simple sugars, processed foods, chemicals, preservatives, and GMO, so they interrupt the normal state of the body, and consequently make it acidic, predisposed to various serious health issues, like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and more. It promotes aging and is a perfect setting for viruses, parasites, and bacteria.
Collective Evolution lists the most common symptoms of a poor pH balance in the body:
Inflamed sensitive gums, cavities
Sciatica, lumbago, stiff neck
Respiratory problems, shortness of breath, coughing
Yeast fungal overgrowth
Low energy and chronic fatigue
Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels
and reduction in oxygen
Heart problems, arrhythmias, increased heart rate
Weight gain, obesity, and diabetes
Bladder and kidney infections
Accelerated free radical damage
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
Osteoporosis, weak brittle bones, hip fractures, bone spurs
Headaches, confusion, sleepiness
Joint pain, aching muscles, and lactic acid buildup
Therefore, offsetting acidity in the body is a necessity in order to prevent chronic diseases, inflammation, and ailments.
To do so one need to increase the intake of the alkaline rich foods such as: avocados, kale, kiwi, carrots, broccoli, herbal teas, alkalized and coconut water, sprouts, apples, pears, zucchini, celery, cauliflower, eggplants, cucumbers, watermelons, spinach, and pineapples.
We also recommend trying the following recipes:
