Benefits Of Raising The Body's PH Levels

A newly-surfaced news headline resurfaced the belief that cancer can in fact be treated in an immensely natural way by the patient on his/her own. This story is of an 8-year-old girl who made it to the end of tunnel by escaping the clutches of a former belief that cancer is incohesive. A similar kind of story that had been in the news a while ago reported about a rational man who adopted the approach of dietary reform to cure his colon cancer. Cancer is a condition that confirms a major decline in the nutritional status of cells. A backhand result that follows such a detrimental change is the accumulation of toxins in the body. The bulk build-up of toxins in the cells over a period results in lowering of the pH.

The 8-year old kept all the comprehensive info mentioned above in stance. She admitted that for raising the pH level of the body, level of lactic acid in the body could be kept under control. The level of lactic acid in the body is indirectly proportional to the pH levels of the body. Once the pH is under control, the carcinogenic potential of the affected cells takes a hike and the body enters the phase of regeneration and repair. Being ignorant of the physiological relationship between the cancerous cells and the pH level of the body could quiver the practice of many oncologists. While the prognosis of every cancer case might vary, it is always recommended to choose the effectual and easier options over the mainstream options of radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

As many comprehend, radiation therapy and chemotherapy own their own bunch of side effects. According to recent study performed at the University of Alberta, Dichloroacetate is a xenobiotic substance that can insure a cancer patient for full recovery at any stage of cancer. This can be a hard-to-digest fact for the people who believe in following the trail of only the mainstream options. Mainstream treatment modalities such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy could hit hard on the pockets of cancer patients especially the ones who are at the their terminal stage.

The ‘Warburg Effect’

The pH effect based cancer approach was first discovered by Otto Heinrich Warburg. Otto Warburg was the founding father of the ‘Warburg Effect’. He outshone as a german physiologist and believed that the metabolic pathway of cancerous cells is distinctly different from that of the normal cells. The difference in the pattern of metabolism can be eminently witnessed when one closely looks at the oxidative step of the citric acid cycle. Citric acid cycle is a sub-cycle involve the process of glycogenesis (breakdown of glycogen in the body). During this phase, the normal cells would metabolize sugar with the aid of oxygen while the affected cells perform this step in the absence of oxygen. According to a recent research published in the EMBO Journal, the altered ways of metabolism could be considered as a consequence to the changes in the Wnt signalling pathway.

During the research, several assays were performed with the use of advanced imaging techniques on live cells under the guidance of the citations quoted in the medical journals of Otto Warburg. A major drift in the cellular metabolism of cancerous cells was witnessed when the potency of Wnt glycolysis was brought back to its original state. This intentional drift introduced by scientists into the cells became noticeable to the naked eye in the form of retarded tumour growth. Wnt pathway alteration was made possible by controlling the behaviour of enzyme pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase 1. A fraction of this enzyme’s activity determines the working of metabolic cycles at the cellular level.

About the pH meter

Cancer is a disease that exhibits genetic inheritance. In order to keep the pH levels of the body under check, patients and their family can opt for the purchase a handy pH meter. pH meter is an electronic device that gauges the toing and froing of hydrogen ions. Hydrogen ions are preliminary ions involved in deciding the polarity of a solution. Determining the pH of urine can prove to worthwhile in detecting the onset of several other ails from a distance. A pH meter comprises of a pH sensor, a preamplifier and a transmitter. The sensor electrode of the meter is dipped in the solution that requires evaluation. In any instance, the rectangular monitor screen of pH meter would flash the accurate pH of the concerned solution. The use of pH meter can be crucial for judging the efficacy of any preventive and prophylactic line of treatments that have been designed for the cancer patients.

How Good can a good alkaline diet plan be?

An alkaline diet plan can assure the cancer patient for all the help that required from the end of nutrients for a prophylactic treatment. Some of the potent alkaline food stuffs that can be used against cancer are:

Ginger: Ginger can be powerfully used in cancer cases that have been unresponsive to an exposure to chemotherapy. The aggressive disposition of ginger can be observed more clearly in the cases of ovarian cancer. When used as a cure for cancer, the acknowledged modes of ginger’s intake would be ginger supplements, smoothies and soups. Ginger owes its anti-carcinogenic potential to phytochemicals.several epidemiological studies support the statement that phytochemicals could be a good call for patients who are in the benign stage of any tumour. The process of tumour progression mainly relies on cell multiplication and quality of the cell’s metabolic cycles.

Garlic: A lure for garlic containing foods could pay off any keen cancer patient by keeping some of the commonest forms of cancers at bay. The cancerous conditions that can be confirmed gone with the use of garlic are colon cancer, cancer of the abdomen and esophageal cancer. Garlic as an anti-cancer ingredient can be added to a guacamole dip, homemade sauce, and soup. However, avoid the use of garlic that is sold in the form of readymade paste in the market or online. The anti-carcinogenic potential of garlic can be attributed to the presence of organosulphur compounds that work on the actions of metabolic enzymes like cytochrome P450s and glutathione S-transferases. organosulfur compounds are also capable of messing with alignment of DNA adducts. A research performed by Siegers CP, Steffen B, Röbke A, Pentz R confirmed that action of garlic against the multiplying cells can be reasoned with the release of the dissected products of alliin due to the activity of the alliinase enzyme system.

Curcumin: Curcumin can be best consumed in the form of essential turmeric oil. Use of standard curcumin in edible preparations can assure an anti-inflammatory action that is effective against cancer but invariable. Use of essential turmeric oils on the other hand would ensure an anti-inflammatory action against cancer that is well-adjusted with the activity level of the disease that is denoted by the disease activity index (DAI). By stagnating the growth of cancerous cells, the malignancy potential of any form of cancer can be oozed. In case you lack access to essential turmeric oil, the potency of standard turmeric powder can be still kept unwaveringly augmented by addition black pepper to it. However, the use of black pepper as an addition should be avoided in the cases of gastrointestinal cancer.

Macadamia Nuts: Macadamia nuts are loaded with MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids). Studies confirm that oleic acid is one of the conscientious fatty acids that inherits the capability of inhibiting the enhanced expressed of a gene named HER2 involved in the cases of breast cancer. Oleic acid performs this ation by amplifying the levels of antibodies like Herceptin. Yet another fatty omega acid that contributes to the scenarios of breast cysts and cancer is palmitoleic acid. Macadamia nut’s benefits can be availed in the form of Macadamia nut edible oil too. The flared-up smoking point of this oil makes it a terrific cooking oil for any variant of diet plan. Needless to say, nut allergy is something that needs to be tested before entering into a diet plan that contains Macadamia nuts as an anti - cancer option.

Almond: The most common forms of cancer that can be prevented with the intake of almond kernels on a regular basis would be prostate cancer and breast cancer. In all likelihood, phytosterols can always be relied on for their cholesterol lowering potential. Almond oil, even in small amounts is capable of reducing the proliferation of cancer cells and therefore triggering the process of apoptosis.

Detox tea: Usually preferred for morning kicks, detox tea can be boon for cancer patients. Detoxification potential of the turmeric ginger lemon tea has been in buzz for quite a while. This flavoured tea comprises of a special flavonoid named kaempferol. Now, kaempferol as many know, is a yellow-coloured antioxidant that is responsible for regulation of cell cycles, genesis and apoptosis. By upping the presence of kaempferol in the body, the angiogenesis potential of ovarian cancer cells can be meddled with. Dosage of kaempferol has a crucial role to play when use becomes a part of a daily routine. According to a recent study, a dose of 1μM can be considered as standard for treatment of pancreatic cancer.

Pistachios: Pistachios are rich in gamma-tocopherol. A reliable presentation given at the American Association for Cancer Research Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research Conference recently indicated that gamma-tocopherol which is an active factor in Vitamin E might lower the incidence of lung cancer. Also, a recent group study conducted in the state of Texas confirmed that when 68 grams of pistachios are consumed everyday for a period of 2 weeks, the subjects presented with ideal body levels of gamma-tocopherol required to avoid any possible incidence of cancer in the future.

Dark veggies: Though kale is popular these days, some of the other dark veggies that can be considered for ruling out a possible incidence of cancer would be watercress, romaine lettuce and swiss chard. They all are rich in folate. This pivotal component of the vitamin B-complex prevents the mutation of carcinogenic cells. Folic acid has been a popular supplement of choice among the patients who suffered with either colorectal or pancreatic cancer. The prime role of folate in the body is of mending and making the DNA strands (play a key role in gene expression) and in the production of red and white cells. The efficacy of folic acid in cancer cases can be gauged with its dosage and time of ingestion. The cut-off dose for daily intake of folic acid is ≥0.4 mg/day.

Chilli: There is enough epidemiological evidence to support that Capsaicin - Chilli’s phytochemical component is actually nifty at handling the expression of genes. Gene expression can be crucial issue of concern in the survival, arrested growth phase and metastasizing stages of cancer cells. Recent researches have given a closer view of the working mechanism of capsaicin. It might come as astonishing to many, but the manner in which chilli expressed its potential was fairly connected with the alteration of signalling pathways, and oncogenic genes.

Tomatoes: Anti-cancer potential of tomatoes stems from lycopene. Lycopene in many occasions has been found stalling the growth of cancer cells that resided in endometrial lining of various organs like the lung, stomach and prostate. It is comes as surprise that the concentration of lycopene can be found more abundantly in the tomatoes that are supplied in cans at the grocery store. A fresh supply of organic tomatoes held in BPA free cans could assure a ample supply of lycopene required to treat any new cancer patient. If you are going for raw tomatoes, it would be in your best interest to serve them along with alkaline noodles and pastas that contain zucchini.
