You need to double check your lab report and see what they were testing the pH of. If it does say blood then there is a major lab error or you are a true zombie. James, I hope you are doing well. I was away for some time but it is a pleasure to see you in admirable perseverance. James, you were definitely correct.
My doctors response was exactly the same as yours: What is the net effect of the body working hard to maintain blood Ph levels when it encounters a constant barrage of acidic foods. My body is pretty good at maintaining my blood sugar levels but that does not make it immune to the damage done carrying out this process. ALL foods are acid forming. Many of the so-called alkaline foods actually have acidic pH levels to begin with mostly due to beneficial acids.
And again, ALL foods get metabolized in to acids. There is NO such thing as an alkaline forming food. The so-called alkaline diet is a myth. Only if you want to ruin your health. When ingested it is neutralized by the stomach acid forming carbonic acid and sodium chloride salt. So it does not even make it past the stomach acid. If an excess of sodium chloride is formed then hyperchloremic acidosis can result.
As for ingesting baking soda this can lead to all sorts of health issues including cancer and heart disease. Read this thread for a more detailed explanation:. You guys have to take a look at this study: First of all note how they say hypothesized. A hpothesis is an educated guess not backed by any real evidence. Secondly they mention the product used by name, which leads me to believe that the study may have been funded by the manufacturer, which would mean a conflict of interest. For example, did all of the 82 patients have exactly the same 0.
So where is this supposed latent acidosis they are referring to? Magnesium acts like a natural calcium channel blocker thus relaxing blood vessels and increasing circulation that aids with healing. Just start listening to your body…. There are certain foods that really work for me and others not so much. Take the time to listen to your needs and not as much about what others are telling you to do?
And what if you are a sugar addict? If your body says I want sugar are you going to load up on ice cream? People often assume they need things based on cravings because the average person does not have the faintest clue how the body really works. Same reason so many people fell for the alkalize for health myth. Or the ingesting baking kills cancer cells myth.
Or the parasites cause all cancer and AIDS myth………. Natural magnesium sourced from foods is what you are all really looking for. Nothing much works in the body without it like calcium absorption cannot occur without enough magnesium.
I think with the right amount of Mg not supplements our pH levels will always be normal! Thank you for being able to finally provide me with a very good explanation to the importance of Magnesium. I have been taking chemo therapy for the past 4. Magnesium is essential to many things. In fact about processes in the body. But it is a calcium antagonist, which is why it works like a natural calcium channel blocker and is used for things like preventing migraines and calcium induced high blood pressure.
Calcium absorption itself is actually dependent on silica and vitamin D, which aid in the absorption. Deposition of calcium and other minerals in the bones is also dependent on silica. Calcium loss from bones is most often due to hyperparathyroidism from benign tumors or pseudohyperparathyroidism from excess phosphorus intake. A lack of silica or exercise can also lead to mineral loss from bones. And none of the forms of arthritis are from a lack of magnesium.
Arthritis actually means inflammation of the joint, not calcium deposition. Bone spurs osteophytes can occur in some cases of arthritis, but this is not from a lack of magnesium. Osteophytes, which contain various mineral including calcium and magnesium, are formed from pressure on the bone.
In arthritis from bones putting pressure on each other and in other cases from pulling of tendons on bone. Finally, magnesium does not regulate our pH. As pointed out previously our pH is regulated almost exclusively by respiration and kidney function.
As for magnesium supplementation there are different forms of magnesium. The most often used is magnesium oxide because it is the cheapest for manufacturers to use. But the stuff is crap!!!! Magnesium oxide in water forms a caustic magnesium hydroxide. Same as Milk of Magnesia.
It is very poorly absorbed, can adversely neutralize stomach acid leading to numerous health problems and is hard on the tissues due to its mildly caustic nature. I prefer acidified forms of magnesium. Magnesium malate is my first choice followed by magnesium citrate. First intelligent comment on this post… and that James person surely has a very fulfilling life. Paying attention to your body and using common sense, if you feel some tomato craving, go for it.
Very interesting about the acid-bone connection. While it has always seemed logical that calcium from bone would be used as buffer, your article shed new light that makes me question this logic.
Bones are only used as a buffer as a very last resort. This would require long term and extreme acidosis to break the bones down to any significance. Acidosis this bad is so rare that most doctors will never see such as case in their entire lives. On the other hand some bone cells do secrete citric acid to break down old bone for the bone remoldeling process.
But this is a good thing as it is essential to maintaining healthy bone. I think there are more people that try to feed false info than you think and they start like this….. I had a child die needing five major organ transplants. She was born in both liver and renal failure.
She spent her life battling acidosis. Trust me, if you were truly acidotic from your diet and what you eat, you would not be bopping to the store frequently to buy fresh produce to make your green smoothies!!! You would be sick in bed wishing death would just get it over with already!!!
People who spread this bunk lack any basic comprehension of how the biochemistry of the body works. For one thing, the ph in your stomach thanks to hcl, kcl, NaCl is so caustically high…. You cannot humanly consume anything remotely close to those ph levels bc of the deeply painful burns and damage it causes in your mouth, throat, and esophagus. This is Why the stomach has a very special lining to protect it.
After the acid breaks down the food into chyme, it passes into the duodenum where the body has a phenomenal buffering system where it bathes the chyme is such a profoundly basic alkaline solution that …. No need for you or anyone else to manipulate your dietary intake one way or another.
There are plenty of good reasons for ensuring your diet includes critical basics like fats, proteins, sugars your brain lives on glucose alone, fyi , fibers, and a wide variety of nutrients and micronutrients and minerals.
Doctors do not give us squat to take orally to control our blood pH. Bc nothing taken orally can affect blood pH. When we are acidotic and at risk fo imminent death, drs give sodium bicarbonate thru an IV!! Diet does affect the function of your body. You are correct that the food you take in does not usually have a direct affect on your bodies function.
The critical part that most doctors leave out is how your diet affects your endocrine system, which controls your bodies function and its level of performance. Typically foods with a higher ph support a healthier endocrine system. Not just because they are a higher ph, but because these food are more nutrient dense. The whole concept is to minimize toxins they have a huge negative affect on the endocrine system increase you nutrient intake to allow the endocrine system to get back in balance.
The hormones interact with each other at many different levels. There are no magic pills and not everything works exactly the same way for everyone. Some conditions can not be corrected, but that does not mean to discard the Single most powerful treatment for all diseases. Yes, diet can affect health. I think you missed my point. Nutrition affects body function. Maintaining ph is part of body function. Nutrient dense foods tend to be more alkaline and thus help control and maintain normal healthy body function.
Nutrition affects or activates proper hormone function and proper hormone function creates a healthy body. Poor nutrition or less nutrient dense foods create dysfunction and disease. Theses foods tend to be more acidic and are not able to promote optimum health. That is a real stretch and is as ridiculous as claiming that plastic is natural because it comes from oil made by nature. Actually that is not true.
The topic is blood pH regulation, which is carried out almost exclusively by respiration and kidney function. By the way did you ever stop and consider what many of those nutrients are? For example ascorbic acid, folic acid, pantothenic acid, ascorbic acid, malic acid, chlorogenic acid, acidic polyphenols………..
Even beneficial fibers are fermented in a variety of health promoting acids. Yes, it is bunk. People are not using common sense or scientific facts and therefore are misinterpreting the study. What happens to the baking soda when it is ingested? Simple, it is neutralized by the stomach acid forming carbonic acid and sodium chloride salt.
So how is this supposedly helping to reduce acidity i the blood or muscles when it no longer has any buffering capacity? So why does it help? Simple, the sodium chloride is an electrolyte, which can help increase endurance. I read that high acidity in body can cause cancer and so on… But when I read more about this, do not seem to be correct. So the next step was to Research about it more. Good and clear explanation. Thank you so much! The average and timing relative to digestion and other activity pH between highs and lows is more important….
And of course the body system is generally healthier when the average is mostly in alkaline status outside of increases when one eats a meal. Eating will increase acid level to help breakdown foods toward bioavailable components….. Basically a mix such as that is akin to putting cement or concrete into your systems, and the body tries to deal with this partly by increasing to more acidic levels As well as trying to tell us not to eat much processed food and such additives as calcium carbonate….
Tells us through various discomforts and difficulties as result. Craig, we are discussing blood pH, not the pH of the digestive system. What foods you eat does not affect your blood pH. Calcium carbonate reacts with stomach acid forming the absorbable salt calcium chloride. Low Grade Chronic Metabolic Acidosis is real and it happens. Again, nobody claimed food does not affect your pH. Our blood pH is affected by diet since ALL foods metabolize in to acids, many of which are essential to our health, function and existence.
Yes, it does and there are many reasons for this such as kidney or respiratory issues since there are the main means of pH regulation. Hi, What a load of tosh your article is. I suffered from advanced prostate cancer which had become metastatic.
Despite this, my psa started to rise dramatically from undetectable to 8. The future was bleak with the only real alternative being chemotherapy. After some research, I gave up all sugar which is highly acidic and hard cheese for the same reason and took baking soda every day. After an initial high dosage of up to three teaspoons a day in a glass of water, I now take a half teaspoonful in a glass of water morning and evening. After three months, my psa had reduced to 2. I am off the hormonesand taking no other treatment and my oncologist has confirmed the reduction in psa is entirely of my own doing!
Also, I have suffered with nasal polyps for 25 years and have had four operations to remove them. I have been told I am very good at growing nasal polyps and i would always have them and there is no known cause for them. By now 6 years after my last operation i should be full of nasal polyps again, but guess what, I no longer have any nasal polyps.
I have also lost about 8 pounds of belly fat and have more energy than I have had for years. But, I guess this is all a myth and I am dreaming!! His article demonstrates partial knowledge, which is even more useless than no knowledge at all.
But your anecdote is still explained by the evidence Chris posted and numerous scientific studies that help us understand how cancer cells work. Cutting all sugar out of your diet and focusing on a plant-heavy diet as Paleo thought leaders push time and again would obviously have a positive effect on your health. If you have an emotional tie to the acid-alkaline diet myth, then keep it. But looking down your nose at a man who has helped thousands overcome chronic disease that conventional medicine gave up on is arrogant and childish.
Caleb, food items are not considered acidic or alkaline. It is the metabolic effect that earns them the name acid or base forming. Sugar is considered acidic because it increase excretion of magnesium. ALL foods get metabolized in to acids. Proteins are broken down in to amino acids, then in to alkaline ammonia, which is then converted in to uric acid to protect the body from the highly alkaline and toxic ammonia. Fats and oils are broken down in to fatty acids, which are then metabolized forming carbonic acid.
Simple sugars are metabolized in to carbonic acid. Insoluble fibers are enzymatically broken down by the flora in to simple sugars that are then fermented forming a variety of beneficial acids. No, once again sugars are used as a fuel source and when broken down for energy we end up with the byproducts carbon dioxide and water forming carbonic acid, which is essential to many functions in the body. No, lemons are considered acidic because if you test their pH they are acidic due to a variety of acids present such as citric acid, malic acid, oxalic acid, ascorbic acid, etc.
Unfortunately, I think most of you are off the mark. James had mentioned earlier how to explain chronic conditions such as: A person with asthma needs what? They all need O2. Without it, O2 can not be released to our tissues. Many of our chronic medical conditions are a result of or exasperated by our breathing, both at night during sleep and during the day. Lack of O2 creates a cascade of events that can explain virtually all of what James has stated.
Let me share my experience. I am 44 years old male with type II diabetes and I have an intermission between jobs and skin dived spear fishing- apnea based for the last two months. Here are the results. Increase muscle mass; much healthier eye lashes, nails, shiny skin, no sinus issues and no sinus related headaches.
I become much more healthier in a period of three weeks. There is one trick though. I only got natural food during this time, which is also next to impossible in our urban prisons.
That is not the correct answer. What was being referred to is what was missing that led to these diseases and conditions, which IS NOT oxygen. If oxygen was missing then the cells would be dead, not in a disorder. But even with sufficient oxygen those diseases and conditions can still occur because oxygen is not the deficiency leading to those diseases and conditions. But you are correct about the CO2, or more specifically carbonic acid. The release of oxygen O2 from hemoglobin to tissues is dependent on carbonic acid.
This is why alkalinity inhibits oxygen release from hemoglobin decreasing tissue oxygenation. Lemons are not considered acidic because of the mineral profile. I did read the article. Apparently you did not read it yourself or you simply did not understand what it said. Additional buffering is contributed by the numerous histidine residues of hemoglobin and by plasma proteins. Hmmm, no mention of acidifying or alkalizing minerals at all. Future therapies for treating bone loss disorders could be based on shifting systemic acid-base balance in the alkaline direction using diet e.
Our findings also provide further rationale for the promotion of vascular health via aerobic exercise, avoidance of smoking, and good diet. Then there are he conclusions of this study that show how diet is the cause of the many reasons for acidosis.
But acidosis itself is super rare to begin with and acidosis severe enough to lead to bone loss is significantly more rare since buffering by bones is only used as a very last resort for pH buffering from the body. Why do you focus primarily on blood ph? The circulatory system is only one part of your body. You can not be objective if you do not look at the body as a whole being inside and out. Nutrition is the key and more alkaline foods tend to be higher in the nutrients needed to keep the body healthy.
A balance is important and promoting that it does not matter what you eat is irresponsible. The focus is on blood pH because when discussing the alkalize or die myth the alkalize refers to the blood, which is not affected by diet. In fact, many of these foods are highly acidic to begin with and ALL foods get metabolized in to acids.
So the article is discussing the myth that diet can alter blood pH for health. Again what is being pointed out is that it does not matter what you eat as far as blood pH goes since your pH IS NOT regulated by what you eat. But there is a major difference between affecting and regulating.
Will diet affect blood pH? Yes because ALL foods get metabolized in to acids. And without many of those acids we would not exist. But there is always too much of a good thing so those acids that affect the blood pH have to be regulated.
It never once occurs to them that by taking charge of their WHOLE health and eating better as well as losing weight improves the naturally designed functions of your body… So it CAN fight off mutations and infections and long term damage.
We are trying to explain to people how the microscopic eggs that are laid in rotten food are connected to the larva worms which appear and later the bugs which soon will be seen surrounding the food source.
And suddenly flies are born!!! As for why the author is focused on the blood pH…. The subject you are so sure you understand better than those educated in the science of bodily systems. You are correct about the blood ph. I was only mentioning that the blood ph does not always control the ph of the body. Sometimes you have to look at the whole body and not just one area in question. Again when discussing the alkalize for health myth the reference is to blood pH, not the pH of other areas of the body, some of which that need to be acidic to be healthy.
The relationship between diet and cancer is well known. Dietary intake exists as the largest external or environmental epigenetic factor capable of driving the development or maintenance of cancer. The American Institute for Cancer Research AICR comprehensive global report has compiled numerous studies demonstrating associations between dietary habits and cancer risk.
The findings recommend increased or regular consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes, while discouraging excess consumption of sugary and energy-dense foods and drinks, red and processed meats, and salty processed foods http: Acidity is a well known factor associated with cancer. Lower pH levels in the extracellular space promote the invasive and metastatic potential of cancer cells. A net-acid diet or acidogenic diet is determined by the balance between acid and base-forming dietary constituents.
Most fruits and vegetables are net-base producing foods since the metabolized products are organic anion precursors such as citrate, succinate, and conjugate bases of carboxylic acids. The conclusion of this study is relevant. It does not say Chronic Low Grade Metabolic Acidosis is a direct cause of cancer, but does conclude that it plays a role.
Blood PH is 7. Sugar is neutral at a pH of 7. Sugar is more acidic than blood. Secondly, a pH of 7 is neutral and thus not acidic. Lemons are acidic, right? Jim Bagnall, Hi there, I too have metastatic prostate cancer, and am on the search for alternatives to chemo and hormone therapy.
I would appreciate any other information re your diet etc that you may be prepared to share. There are many different alternative therapies to treating a wide variety of different diseases. It is a serious condition and can not go untreated, if you are not willing to start traditional therapies, it would be in your best interest to see a Naturopathic Doctor who will be able to monitor you closely as even these natural remedies can have some nasty side effects if not followed closely.
There are many different vitamins and minerals that can be taken that have shown to be helpful in treating cancer patients. Before taking any supplementation though you need to either talk a doctor. It seems that no matter what people try to do to improve their health by alternative remedies or cures there will always be those that will attempt to dissuade them from doing so. If one is stricken with a sickness or ailment that has been determined by doctors to be inoperable or curable, why would you not try an alternative?
If traditional cures are not working then what have they got to lose by trying another form of treatment. I know I would do exactly the same if I were in this position. The problem is that there are too many people with no education whatsoever in medicine or human physiology repeating proven BS such as you can alkalize the blood through diet or ingesting baking soda will cure cancer.
When people keep promoting such nonsense they are a danger to other and a boon to big pharma who benefits because these people make holistic medicine look like quackery. That increases FDA power over holistic medicine and thereby increases profits and power of big pharma. He has written numerous articles on the matter. So who are you again? Maybe mention your credentials here for everyone to see, instead of saying baking soda is worthless. Sircus has no clue what he is talking about so I can care less if he swears by baking soda sodium bicarbonate.
If people would simply learn how things really work in the body instead of being gullible and believing any old crap they see on the internet like from Sircus then there would be a lot less time being wasted on debates. I just love your story Jim. Tony Robbins recommended a low alkaline diet to a very very sick guy in the audience. I am with you and Tony. As with everything, the proof is in the pudding. Robbins also promotes the caustic and disease forming ionized alkaline water. The water is caustic and alkaline due to the formation of mineral metal hydroxides.
These can lead to numerous diseases by neutralizing stomach acid that increases risk of infection from pathogens and inhibits methylation. The hydroxides in the water also dissociate in to the dangerous hydroxyl radical linked to cancer and other disease formation. In my opinion Robbins has no clue about chemistry nor how the human body works, but is rather a sales pitch person reading from propaganda scripts.
If what you say about ionized alkaline water is true the coconut water natures natural Kangen water would if dranked excessively lead to cancers. Ionized alkaline water has been the most effective in treating, gout for so many sufferers why down play and negate its benefits. That is a ridiculous comparison. Coconut water is nothing like the caustic Kangen ionized alkaline water. Does coconut water contain the caustic mineral metal hydroxides of ionized alkaline water that are basically dilute versions of Drano and Red Devil Lye?
Priscilla, my own experience is that one must first remove fungus from the gut before taking sodium bicarbonate. Kefir easily bought and creates a lifetime supply will rebalance the gut with friendly bacteria and kill the bad stuff. There is some research extant that claims cancers are the result of fungal overgrowth in the body — candida albicans and the like — but you can google this and see if you think it correct.
It tastes quite disgusting, so tell your husband to hold his nose whilst drinking! My PSA had been 12 and is now down to 3. It should be reduced even further as I up the dose slightly to 4 tsps a day. The sugars are taken into the cancer with the bicarb riding on them. First of all there is NO research I have seen linking fungal overgrowth to cancer.
There are some hypotheses based on the incorrect assumptions of Simoncini, but no research. There is some research showing other mycotoxins from molds can cause cancer. For example aflatoxins from Aspergillus that Simoncini falsely claims is the same thing as Candida, which is a yeast or fungus but not a mold. As for Candida, this is a dimorphic microbe that is a natural part of our flora. You cannot eliminate it. Candida exists in a benign yeast form in an acidic environment. In an alkaline environment Candida morphs in to a pathogenic fungal form.
ALL baking soda sodium bicarbonate is aluminum free. And it is dangerous to ingest. See my post to Priscilla. Cancer cells can use glucose, fructose, lactate, ketones, fatty acids and some amino acids as fuel sources. It is neutralized forming carbonic acid and sodium chloride salt. Secondly, even if it did make it to the cancer cells, the cancer cells are already more alkaline internally than healthy cells.
It is this alkalinity that allows cancer cells to survive and drives cancer glycolysis. When the proton pumps of cancer cells are blocked the cancer cells become acidic and die. On the other hand research has also shown that when healthy cells are made excessively alkaline the healthy cells morph in to cancer cells:.
Tumorigenic 3T3 cells maintain an alkaline intracellular pH under physiological conditions. J Membr Biol ;94 1: J Cell Biol Mar;98 3: How cancer cells maintain their internal alkalinity and evidence that blocking the proton pumps makes cancer cells acidic killing them:. Am J Physiol Cell Physiol Cancer Res Nov 15;67 It is not a theory, it is a hypothesis an educated guess not backed by evidence , and a faulty one at that. So much that they have a higher affinity for available oxygen than healthy cells.
In fact, cancer cells die in the absence of oxygen, which stimulates the process of angiogenesis, which helps surviving cancer cells to proliferate by increasing oxygen levels to the surviving cancer cells:.
PLoS One Sep 15;4 9: Choosing between glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation: Biochim Biophys Acta Jun; 6: Cancer Res January 15, 66; Oxygen consumption can regulate the growth of tumors, a new perspective on the Warburg effect. Anoxia is necessary for tumor cell toxicity caused by a low-oxygen environment. Cancer Res Apr 15;65 8: Relationship between oxygen and glucose consumption by transplanted tumors in vivo. Cancer Res Jun;27 6: Death of cancer cells by lack of oxygen and angiogenesis stimulation to increase the growth rate of tumors by increasing oxygen levels to the tumor:.
Computational models of VEGF-associated angiogenic processes in cancer. Math Med Biol Mar;29 1: Cancer Res 47, , July 1, Tissue Math Med Biol 8 3: Growth-related changes of oxygen consumption rates of tumor cells grown in vitro and in vivo.
J Cell Physiol Jan; 1: Therefore, alkalizing the cancer cell would only increase the growth of the cancer if the cancer thrives with little oxygen hypothesis was true. So why is HBOT used as a complementary method for getting rid of cancer cells if they in fact require oxygen to survive and cannot survive without oxygen?
Why would a cancer patient expose themselves to more oxygen under pressure if less oxygen is what they should be seeking to stop the growth of cancer? Another thing is that cancer cells are metabolically inflexible so while it is true that they can use other sources to grow, they much rather prefer glucose as a fuel which accelerates proliferation vs. So what say you about the ketogenic diet then?
Acidic vs alkaline, what a mess… Interestingly enough, high dose intravenous vitamin C ascorbic acid in an alternative medicine setting is used to treat cancer as well also administered to athletes for performance enhancement and is effective. Generally for cancer and leukaemia especially, my recommendation would be to look into THC from medical cannabis high THC: Please let me know your thoughts, this intrigues me. I have addressed this so many times already.
That is why angiogenesis inhibitors are used as one form of cancer treatment. HBOT can be used in some cases to help with infections and wounds associated with some cancers. For example, fungal infections can occur with some cancers and lead to further tissue breakdown. Furthermore you cannot reduce oxygen levels to the body in a healthy matter to fight cancer since all cells need oxygen.
Again, this is why they use angiogenesis inhibitors to reduce the oxygen supply directly to the tumor by inhibiting blood vessel formation to and within the tumor. Your claim about being metabolically inflexible is nonsense. For example, lactate has also been shown to be a primary fuel for cancer cells. So can the amino acid glutamine, which is a substitute for glucose in cells.
Here is some reading for you:. Not preferred does not mean inhibits growth. Take for example lactate, which is also a primary fuel source for cancer cells yet also inhibits proliferation.
Not that effective though. Throughout the state of Texas, school districts report dropout information to the Texas Education Agency TEA at the end of the academic year.
