Acid-Alkaline pH balance and CancerThe question of alkalinity in the body is an important one but, it is not ALL about acid, so I would like to add some clarification here.
When is acid acid?In biochemistry, an organic acid is a compound has a COOH radical attached. This makes it work as an acid but not necessarily strong. An example is alpha lipoic acid ( ALA ) and another is acetic acid ( vinegar ). Because of the weakness of organic acids, it would take massive doses of fatty acids to make even a small effect on pH. It does not take much baking soda to neutralize a lot of vinegar and baking soda ( sodium bicarbonate ) is actually a very weak alkali..
So, what is an alkali?The opposite to an organic acid is an amine which has either a NH2 radical attached or a RNH radical. Ammonia is NH3, a strong alkali but amines are not as strong. As a note, amino acids have both -COOH and -NH2 terminations.
What is this acid-alkaline balance about?Acid-alkaline balance is critically important in the physiologic function of the body and being either too alkaline or too acid can quickly kill you. As a point, if the blood gets too acidic, it causes kidney failure and other organ failures as well. This can be caused by issues such as excessive Lactic acid in the blood from too much strenuous exercise. Lactic acid is produced in the body at anytime that the cells do not get enough oxygen for their needs. This can take place in respiratory failure, extreme exercise, or in cancerous growths.
pH regulationThe body works hard to keep the pH at the right level and will sacrifice bone or anything else to regulate the pH between 7.25 and 7.45. when it can not do this, organ failure will quickly follow. If an acid condition occurs and is found in time, IV-bicarbonate is given to buffer the blood pH. Doctors and medical professionals will say that 7.25 to 7.45 is the range that the body regulates the blood pH to and that outside of this range you will die. Yeah, sure, but why do they not get that if the blood pH drops to 7.27 that you are near death? Why do they not get that optimum is 7.38 and that is where almost every function in the body works best? Being too acid, even below 7.30 impairs proper immune function, respiration, and many other physiological functions as well.
Doctors and healthThose doctors studied the same biochemistry that I did.but they do not see the forest for the trees being in the way. For a long time I have pounded out the idea that for health and longevity, you need everything to be optimum for your body. Optimum blood pH, optimum hormones, optimum nutrition, optimum environment, optimum exercise.
Saliva pHSo, what does all of this have to do with saliva pH? Saliva pH needs to be alkaline because that the optimum pH for the main enzyme, amylase, is 6.8 to 7.0. You might say wait a minute, that is slightly acid, and you are right but the sugars released from starches by the amylase tends to lower the pH. So saliva should start out with a pH of about 7.4. So, what does it mean if the saliva pH is below this, especially if it is acid? It basically may mean that the salivary gland may not be pulling enough alkalinity from the blood or that the blood is actually pulling alkalinity from the salivary glands as well as from the rest of the body. If the saliva is acid, it definitely is an indicator that there is something wrong.
Urine pHAs for urine pH, the kidneys are a major regulator of the blood's biochemistry, not just pH. The kidneys are a pump that is designed to regulate the elimination of unwanted materials from the blood and as a result from the body.. A major part of this is the removal of acidity from the body, if for no other reason, self protection. Acidity can quickly destroy the kidneys. So, guess what? If your urine is seriously acidic, then your kidneys are being bombarded with acid and are not working in optimum conditions. If the urine pH is only slightly acidic then that may not be an issue but below about 6.6, I would be concerned.
Checking the pHIt is best to check urine and salivary pH first thing in the morning, just after waking, before drinking or eating, do not even take any medication. Also, if you wake in the middle of the night, it is best not to eat or drink then either. The reason? both food and water consumption in any form affects the urine pH for up to several hours after. Even if you take medicines there will be some affect.There are many disagreeing sources as to optimum urine pH but I believe that 7.3 to 7.4 is optimum but I would not panic if it was 6.8 at times. There are pH kits available from many sources at reasonable prices.
Case notesI lost my wife back in 2006 as a result of cancer pain medication. At the time she was diagnosed in the final late stages of cancer, her urine pH had dropped to about 5.4 to 5.6. We fixed her diet and nutrition, her pH came up but not to normal. She started recovering and outlived her doctor's last projection by between 4 to 8 times - no chemo but she did later take some alternative treatment from the Burzynski Clinic. Her oncologist had very stodgily given her 2 to 4 weeks to live in early March 2006. She did suddenly pass and it was realized that her doctor changed her pain medication to something that was marked on the front of her folder Do not prescribe, allergic ( in big red letters ). The point of the fact that she was making recovery is that the urine pH makes a big difference.
Cancer deaths and pHMost cancer patients actually die from organ failure. Kidney failure and liver failure often occur first. I would strongly suggest that because of all that these people have been through, their ability to regulate the blood pH fails, and the organ failure follows shortly.
pH rulesDr. Simoncini of Italy discovered that he could stop many cancers with simple baking soda treatments. The very point of this, that even if not 100 percent effective, it is a treatment that only costs a few dollars when compared to Oncology treatments that cost hundreds of thousands. There goes the medical professions profits!
Alkaline water concentrateby David Etheredge
I use the following in 1 gallon of spring water to make a concentrate:
1 tbsp pickling lime (calcium hydroxide)
1/2 tbsp Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate)
1/4 tsp no-salt (potassium chloride)
1/4 tst baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) I originally used Sea Salt for the sodium but baking soda provides additional alkalinity..
vigorously shake to dissolve each time that some is used as follows:
I take 1 tbsp of the concentrate and dilute to 1 gallon of water.
I drink 2-4 glasses of this every day depending on my needs. Do not drink too much. Also, take vitamin D3 along with K2-MK7 to help with calcium absorption and utilization. Reduce this amount if you experience any abnormal health signs.
My pH was very acid (approx. 5.8) a year and a half ago (2006) and the alkalizing diet was not working fast enough.
My pH is now within normal range. It is important to use care not to over-alkalize as this can be as bad as being too acidic. Get close to normal then reduce consumption of alkaline water.
Another important element is iodine which is best painted on the bottom of the feet (Lugol's Iodine). Also look into sulfur compounds and selenium sources such as MSM.
