With an lingering epidemic of Cancer consistently invading our lives , we now are living in a time where society needs to protect themselves of this ruthless disease through their food choice.
By alkalising your body you are doing just this! But what does ‘alkalise’ mean ??
In basic terms it simply is a term referring to balancing the pH of the body, or maintaining the perfect environment for your body to operate, internally.
The Symbol ‘pH’ stands for “potential of hydrogen” and is measured on a scale of 0 to 14, with lower numbers indicating higher acidity.
When the body’s fluids become too acidic (measuring under 7), minerals are pulled out of bones and tissues to compensate, leading, in the long term to disease and impedes the body’s natural detoxification process.
When the body has a good pH balance, they become “alkalised” or are in optimal health to support the bodies innate to heal itself.
Unfortunately, most Australians, with their typical diet of processed foods, sugars and caffeine are HIGHLY ACIDIC.
This puts these candidates at high risk of sickness and disease . Furthermore Cancer cells can only live and proliferate in an acidic environment.Reputable oncologists teach, “Cancer thrives in an acidic environment and cannot survive in an alkaline environment”.
The Cancer Council says that ‘one in two Australian men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime’ and ‘one in three females’.
This is diabolical. It is very clear that we need to take precautionary measures to avoid ‘big big C’. A lot of this is mindset, however the most influential factor is environment and health choices.
Below are some basic health tips you can implement to help keep your diet ‘alkalized’ and improve your cancer resilience:
Limit your salt. Salt consists of sodium and chloride — the combination of the two molecules sets the stage for low-grade metabolic acidosis. Healthy people require only up to 1,300 mg of sodium daily. When grocery shopping, read food labels carefully. Good rule: Opt for fresh foods over anything that comes in a package.
Eat lots of veggies. Strive to make one-third of your diet consist of fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits. A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that high consumption of potassium, found in fruits and vegetables, and the resulting more alkaline pH, were strongly linked to muscle preservation in people age 65 and older. Beware: Most canned vegetables contain added salt, and some canned fruits contain added sugar. Another good rule: Fill half of your plate with vegetables, one-fourth with fish or other lean protein, and the remaining one-fourth with a small amount of starch (such as a sweet potato or brown rice).
Stay hydrated. That means drinking mostly water, not soft drinks, alcohol or caffeinated beverages. There is water in fruits and vegetables, too. Remember: It is especially important to drink more water if you fall short on your daily intake of vegetables and fruits. Interesting: A squeeze of lemon in your water adds taste and has an alkalinizing effect in your body.
Healthful “green” drinks can help balance pH. These drinks, which feature ingredients such as wheatgrass, barley grass and chlorella, come as powders and can be mixed in a glass of cold water at home (ideally alkalised water).
