Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote stated: “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Four years ago these were not huge issues in my life. But when you have a conversation with a doctor, your perspective changes quickly.
“Cancer can’t exist in an alkaline environment.” Pretty strong statement and, as a cancer survivor, it caught my attention. Dr. Otto Warburg made that statement. In 1931, Dr. Warburg won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering the cause of cancer. His research revealed that cancer was produced by an acidic environment, a state of oxygen deprivation” in our bloodstream. Warburg also wrote the paper, “The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer.” He states: “There is no disease whose prime cause is better known. Over acidity.”
Cancer and oxygen deprivation
Research demonstrates that there are many internal and external contributors to cancer. Toxic chemicals, sugar, pesticides, GMO’s are among the many identified factors. Warburg uncovered the common denominator that connects all types of cancer. The root cause is oxygen deprivation in our cells. Our cellular structure changes when our bloodstream is deprived of oxygen.
Human blood naturally is pH balanced at 7.365. pH measures the amount of acidity or alkalinity of our blood. Too much acidity or alkalinity causes a problem. Our bodies attempt to maintain that delicate pH balance. It is part of our genetic wiring. As a result, the natural process of how our cells oxygenate is disrupted. The lower the pH reading, i.e., the more acidic our blood becomes, our susceptibility to illness and disease increases. As Warburg described “it as a cell changing its mode of respiration, its mode of metabolism – from respiration to fermentation. Our bodies naturally attempt to correct the imbalance, but the process produces a negative reaction.
Cancer and Acidosis
Dr. Warburg discovered that cancer cells are not fueled by oxygen as normal cells are. The high levels of oxygen that are found in healthy, alkaline bodies are toxic to cancers. He found that cancers get their energy from sugars and a process of fermentation in acidic environments. He proved empirically the relationship between cancers, acidic body pH, and cellular oxygen starvation. His findings demonstrated that cancers are merely a symptom of acidosis. By addressing the acidosis, cancer can be eliminated.
Excessive acidity impairs the immune system which is the core of life itself. When the immune system is compromised, the body loses its ability to alkalize itself, and then the body loses its ability to absorb oxygen effectively. The key is finding ways to let our bodies heal themselves. Proper nutrition, exercise, elimination of body waste, reducing exposure to toxic chemicals are key elements.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote stated: “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Four years ago these were not huge issues in my life. But when you have a conversation with a doctor, your perspective changes quickly. I have come to realize that your body is designed to heal itself and illness, disease is preventable. Don’t wait to find out the hard way. Take action and learn more about how you can eliminate toxins, chemicals from your foods and products that you use everyday. Education is vital to understand how to enhance, then maintain your pH balance. Education, then action.
