Alternative and integrative cancer doctors understand that acid-alkaline balance is vitally important factor necessary for achieving and maintaining good health. Acid-alkaline imbalances can lead to disease, including cancer, and today, largely due to poor dietary habits, many people suffer from such imbalances.

Simply put, acid-alkaline balance refers to the balance between the amount of acids and non-acids (alkalis) that are found in your body’s fluids (blood, saliva, and urine) and tissues. This ratio of acids to non-acids is determined by measuring pH levels. In terms of your body’s health, pH is the measurement of the acid-alkaline ratio of your body’s fluids and tissues. When this ratio is balanced, good health results. When it is imbalanced—either too acidic or too alkaline—the stage is set for disease to take hold. pH is measured on a scale of 0 to 14. A pH of 7 is considered neutral. A pH level below 7 indicates an acidic condition exists, while a pH level above 7 represents an alkaline condition.

In order to thrive, your body’s blood chemistry needs to be slightly alkaline (ideally having a pH of 7.4). When your pH blood reading moves too far below or above this number and remains that way, inevitably you will become sick. Some people who are chronically ill have a blood pH that is overly alkaline. However, the majority of people suffering from chronic illness suffer from an unbalanced blood pH that is far too acidic. This is especially true for the vast majority of people with cancer. Chronic over-acidity causes the body’s bloodstream to change to an environment that diminishes oxygen levels and supports unhealthy microorganisms, including cancer cells and tumors.

Not all parts of your body operate within the same pH range. That’s because there are different levels of acidity and alkalinity in which your body’s various organs, tissues, and fluids can function optimally. In each of these areas of the body, numerous chemical and enzyme reactions occur. For these reactions to be performed as nature intended, a narrow pH range is necessary. Small changes in pH levels can profoundly affect the body’s overall function and energy levels.

Both saliva and urine have a wide range of pH values, yet health can still exist as long as these ranges are not exceeded or diminished. Blood pH, on the other hand, must be maintained within a much narrower range for health to also be maintained.

Harmful Effects Of Acid-Alkaline Imbalances

When its pH levels become imbalanced for prolonged periods of time, your body’s internal environment will become either too acidic or too alkaline. In the vast majority of cases, over-acidity or acidosis, is the problem. (For some people, over-alkalinity, also known as alkalosis, is at the heart of their health problems, but overall alkalosis is rare, especially today, when the diets of most people create ongoing over-acidity.).

When acid buildup occurs to the point where your body is no longer able to successfully eliminate or neutralize these acids, a variety of problems can occur, including illness and, potentially, even death. Other problems related to acidosis include accelerated aging, demineralization (loss of the body’s mineral stores), fatigue, impaired enzyme activity, inflammation and organ damage, and the proliferation of harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, molds, yeasts (including Candida), and viruses.

Accelerated Aging: Accelerated or premature aging is all too common in our society. This condition can be due to a variety of factors, such as the accumulation of environmental toxins in the body, stress, and nutritional deficiencies. These factors can also affect pH levels, making your body more susceptible to disease.

When your body’s cells are continually exposed to an overly acidic environment, their cell structure can become altered, meaning that the cell walls lose their integrity.

When viewed under a microscope, such cells, instead of being round and having noticeably strong walls, look bent and misshapen, with cell walls that are thin and weak. In addition, their ability to function properly can be diminished, as can their ability to effectively communicate with other cells. Over time, this state of deterioration causes the cells to make “mistakes” as they seek to repair and regenerate themselves by manufacturing the proteins that are essential to this process. Over time, these “mistakes” can cause healthy cells to become cancerous.

Acidosis can also impair proper brain function. An overly acidic internal environment inhibits neuron function. Neurons are nerve cells that help initiate and conduct impulses from the brain. When neurons are unable to function properly symptoms such as “brain fog,” forgetfulness, and impaired mental acuity are more apt to occur.

Demineralization: Your body draws upon its alkaline mineral stores in order to buffer or neutralize excess acids. While occasional withdrawal of these minerals is not likely to pose a problem, during chronic acidosis, the loss of such minerals, which include calcium, potassium, and magnesium, can pose serious health risks. Since these minerals are stored in all body tissues, their loss can potentially affect any of your body’s organs. But it is your bones and teeth that are most especially affected by demineralization.

Demineralization can lead to tooth problems because loss of calcium makes teeth more brittle and more susceptible to chipping. Your teeth may also start to experience sensitivity to hot and cold foods, and be more prone to develop cavities. Tooth decay and cavities, so prevalent in children today, are almost always caused primarily by a steady diet of acid-forming foods, such as the sugared cereals, sodas, and fast-food meals.

Other common results of demineralization include dry and cracking skin, brittle and thinning hair, fingernails that crack or split easily, and bleeding and oversensitive gums.

Impaired Enzyme Activity: Enzymes are chemical substances that literally make life possible. Enzymes are necessary for every single process that your body performs,including breathing, digestion, immune function, reproduction, and proper organ function, as well as speech, thought, and movement. In addition, minerals, vitamins, and hormones cannot perform any of their various functions without enzymes.

Your body produces thousands of different types of enzymes. Each one of them acts as a specific catalyst that is necessary for stimulating a particular biochemical reaction. But enzymes can only perform their multitude of tasks correctly within specific pH levels. If these pH levels become imbalanced, as they do with acidosis, enzyme function becomes disrupted.

Inflammation and Organ Damage: The excess acids that build up in the body due to chronic acidosis can be damaging to the tissues and organs with which they come into contact. If not neutralized or eliminated, they can cause lesions and hardening of organ tissues, as well as inflammation.

The kidneys and skin, both organs through which acids are eliminated, can be particularly affected when the amount of acid is greater than they are designed by nature to get rid of. When the skin is affected, conditions such as hives, eczema, blotching, and itching can occur as a direct result of acidic sweat passing through the sweat glands. When excess acid buildup occurs in the kidneys, urination can become painful and the urinary tract can become inflamed, causing a painful, burning sensation during urination. Infection can also occur, leading to conditions such as cystitis, a type of bladder inflammation that is often accompanied by urinary tract infection.

Tissues affected by acid buildup can not only be damaged, but can also become more susceptible to infection, allowing invading microorganisms to more easily penetrate cells and tissues. Once such penetration occurs, these same microorganisms also have an easier time growing in numbers within the affected area.

Compounding this problem is the fact that acid buildup also impairs immune function. In a state of acidosis, production of white blood cells is diminished, and the white blood cells that are manufactured are of reduced strength. Since white blood cells play a vital role in your body’s ability to target and destroy invading microbes, their diminished numbers and capacity resulting from excess acids in the body makes it easier for disease to take hold.

Proliferation of Harmful Microorganisms: When the pH of the blood remains consistently below 7.365, the bloodstream becomes a breeding ground for harmful microorganisms, much like a stagnant swamp. This happens because acidosis reduces the available oxygen supply in the bloodstream, and microorganisms thrive in the absence of optimum oxygen levels. In 1931, German researcher Dr. Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize for his discovery that cancer cells cannot exist in an oxygen-rich environment.

When the oxygen supply in the bloodstream is diminished, various cells within the body revert to what Warburg termed a “primitive” state, no longer deriving energy from oxygen, but from the fermentation of sugar in the form of glucose. This creates large amounts of lactic acid, a waste product of this fermentation. And it is this lactic acid that further diminishes available oxygen levels which disrupts the acid-alkaline balance.

What’s important to realize here is that it was the lack of oxygen that set this process in motion in the first place, and the lack of oxygen was caused by unhealthy acidic levels in the bloodstream. By maintaining acid-alkaline balance, all of this can be avoided.

The same oxygen-deficient condition that causes cells to devolve and potentially turn cancerous is also responsible for the growth and spread of bacteria, fungi, molds, yeasts (including Candida), and viruses in the body.These microorganisms live by fermenting glucose, which under healthy conditions is used by your body to supply energy. In addition, they divert fats and proteins normally used by your body for regeneration and other functions, using them for their own reproduction. In this way, the microorganisms are able to spread throughout the body, targeting weak areas and breaking down tissue and interfering with the bodily processes that are essential for good health.

The Work of Dr. Bernardo Majalca

Dr. Bernardo taught about the importance of acid-alkaline balance and its importance to health and preventing cancer was the late Dr. Bernardo Majalca. Dr. Bernardo, as he was known by his friends and patients, emphasized the necessity of following an alkalizing diet, both to prevent cancer, and to help reverse it. The dietary guidelines he developed to help his patients played an integral role in his overall integrative approach to treating cancer successfully.

I urge you to learn more about Dr. Bernardo’s Alkaline Diet.

Dr. Shnyia one of the top ten doctors in the world, he help developed the colonoscopy, wrote to books about how important it is for your body to be alkaline to fight cancer, and how important it is to know about acid/alkaline imbalance.

Bob Campbell famous researcher discovered how to turn cancer on and turn cancer off by changing the pH of the body, an alkaline body kills cancer wrote the book China Study,

Doctor Otto Warburg- won a noble prize for discovering the cause of can and the cure to cancer. Acid/alkaline imbalance.

Video of doctors talking about how important it is to be in an alkaline environment.

This is just a couple doctors; the research on this has been down by countries all over the world for decades. Yet, here in the United States acid/Alkaline imbalance is not taught in our medical schools.

Do your own research go google.com put in acid/alkaline imbalance doctors and researchers you will get thousands of articles on how important it is to know acid/alkaline imbalance for good health.

One of the quickest ways to get your body into more of an alkaline environment is by changing the type of water you are drinking. You must drink restructured alkaline water (kangen water) you see not all alkaline water are the same you can not buy the right alkaline water from any store and that includes heath food stores.
