Alkaline Water For Cancer Patients

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Are you interested in a report on Cancer from the Johns Hopkins Hospital?
    Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins :

    1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer
    cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have
    multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients
    that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after
    treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the
    cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable
    size.

    2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a
    person's lifetime.

    3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer
    cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and
    forming tumors.

    4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has
    nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic,
    but also to environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

    5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing
    diet to eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5 times/day
    and by including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

    6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing
    cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells
    in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can
    cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

    7.. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars
    and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

    8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often
    reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of
    chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor
    destruction.

    9. When the body has too much toxic burden from
    chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either
    compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb
    to various kinds of infections and complications.

    10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to
    mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy.
    Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other
    sites.

    *CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

    a. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made
    with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute
    would be Manuka honey or molasses, but only in very small
    amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in
    color Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

    B. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the
    gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting
    off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer
    cells are being starved.

    c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based
    diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little other meat,
    like chicken. Meat also contains livestock
    antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all
    harmful, especially to people with cancer.

    d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole
    grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into
    an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked
    food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live
    enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to
    cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance
    growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building
    healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most
    vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw
    vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at
    temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C)..

    e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high
    caffeine Green tea is a better alternative e and has cancer
    fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or
    filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap
    water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

    12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of
    digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the
    intestines becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic
    buildup.

    13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By
    refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes
    to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the
    body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

    14. Some supplements build up the immune system
    (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals,
    EFAs etc.) to enable the bodies own killer cells to destroy
    cancer cells.. Other supplements like vitamin E are known
    to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's
    normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or
    unneeded cells.

    15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.
    I know it's a bit long, but I think it's worth the time it takes to read it.
    I know it's a bit long, but I think it's worth the time it takes to read it.

    • ANSWER:
      I wonder how much it cost for the John Hopkins Hospital to finally discover and publish what holistic health practitioners have been saying for decades.

      So this brings us to the question: Are we striving for longevity, or are we just trying to have some control over what method the grim reamer uses to finally take us? That question has to be thought about for a while.

  2. QUESTION:
    what is the best way to avoid cancer >?
    There is a long history of cancer in my family and I DO NOT want to get it when I am older so I am trying to figure out what I can eat or do to avoid it ? I have been eating tomatoes and spinach on a daily..

    What are the healthy effects of spinach ?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      Both of my parents died of cancer, and I was young then. I am as old as my mother was when she got cancer, and I really want to avoid it too.

      None of my brothers and sisters ever smoked, and we think that is their primary cause. Much of the research that I am doing tells me that all cancer patients are overly acidic, and that by eating a more alkaline diet, I can make my body less acidic, and less likely to host cancer cells.

      So I read a book called The PH Miracle for Diabetes. It has helped me lose some weight, and also I found that I used to have some diabetes symptoms, yet don't have them anymore. Like falling sleep after a meal that is high in sugars, like pasta and cheese, or rice. I used to drink 1 liters of soft drinks daily, and have not had a soft drink since July.

      I am drinking alkaline water, and I think that is helping as well. Keep eating vegetables, and try to avoid these things. Eggs, cheese, animal fats in general, and most milk products.

      By reducing cheese, my friend was able to reduce his medications for type 2 diabetes a lot. They also form acids in the body. Eggs are loaded with cholesterol, and not so good for you anyway. I am not saying that this alone will help you avoid cancer, but you can avoid diabetes with it, and your vital organs will be in better shape to fight off other things.

      Also when I say avoid cheese and eggs, if they are listed in bread or say a little in a burrito, then that is acceptable. I still eat cake made with eggs, just don't eat 3 eggs with bacon on weekends anymore. That used to be a favorite of mine. Who knows what my cholesterol was back then.

      I used to bake a potato, then fry it in bacon greese, with onions, bell pepper, and then top with grated cheese. I don't do that anymore, and will eat a sweet potato with cinnamon istead. Much better for you, and you don't need to top it with anything else, no sour cream, no butter, or sugars required.

      Cinnamon is very good for a diabetic.

      Good Luck !

  3. QUESTION:
    What are the alternative treatments available in India on Breast cancer?
    I am treating my wife with the help of an experienced Naturopath with mainly 'wheat grass' juce as main ingradient for last three months since she had been dignosed for the cancer. Though it has not spread anywhere in the body, it is quite under controll. I want to know is there other remedy which will add to fast recovery. We are working on the way shown by Ann Wigmore. Will anybody from this group will suggest any thing else from Wheat Grass therepy?

    • ANSWER:
      Alternatives treatments take time, they are slow and cure to the grassroot level.

      Here is a natural cure for Cancer,

      CANCER

      The word ‘cancer ‘ comes from the latin "carcinoma" meaning crab. It is the most dreaded disease and refers to all malignant tumors caused by the abnormal growth of a body cell or a group of cells. It is today the second largest killer in the world, next only to heart ailments. The term covers more than 200 diseases.

      The majority of cancers occur in the age group 50-60. Sex does not affect the incidence of the disease. It, however, affects the site of growth. In men, cancer is usually found in the intestines, the prostate and the lungs. In women, it occurs mostly in the breast tissues, uterus, gall bladder, and thyroid.

      Symptoms
      The symptoms of cancer vary according to the site of the growth. The American Cancer Society has prescribed seven signs or danger signals in general which may indicate the presence of cancer. These are: a sore that does not heal; change in bowel or bladder habits; unusual bleeding or discharge; thickening or lump in breast or elsewhere; indigestion or difficulty in swallowing; obvious change in a wart or a mole, and a persistent and nagging cough or hoarseness. Other symptoms may include unexplained loss of weight, particularly in older people, a change in skin color, and changes in the menstrual periods, especially bleeding between periods.

      Causes
      The prime cause of cancer is not known. Certain cancer- causing substances, known as carcinogens, however, increase the chances of getting the disease. About 80% of cancers are caused by environmental factors, 40% of male cancers in India are linked with tobacco, a known cancer-causing agent. The consumption of pan, bettlenut, tobacco, and slaked lime has been linked with lung and throat cancers. Heavy consumption of alcoholic drinks can cause esophageal, stomach, and liver cancers. Occupational exposure to industrial pollutants such as asbestos, nickel, tar, soot, and high doses of x-rays can lead to skin and lung cancers and leukemia. Other factors contributing to cancer are vital infections, trauma, hormone imbalance, and malnutrition. Many well-known biologists and naturopaths, however, believe that a faulty diet is the root cause of cancer. Investigations indicate that the cancer incidence is in direct proportion to the amount of animal protein, particularly meat, in the diet. Dr. Willard J. Visek, a renowned research scientist explained recently a link between excessive meat eating and cancer. According to him, the villain is ammonia, the carcinogenic by-product of meat digestion.

      Treatment
      The effective treatment of cancer consists of a complete change in diet, besides total elimination of all environmental sources of carcinogens, such as smoking and carcinogenic chemicals in air, water and food. There has recently been a surge of popular interest in the concept that diet is not just a minor, but rather a major factor in both the development and the prevention of cancer. The disease can be prevented and even treated by dietary programs that include ‘natural foods ‘ and the use of megavitamin supplements.

      As a first step, the patient should cleanse the system by thoroughly relieving constipation and making all the organs of elimination - the skin, lungs, liver, kidneys and bowels - active. Enemas should be used to cleanse the colon. For the first four or five days, the patient should take only juicy fruits like oranges, grapefruits, lemons, apples, peaches, pears, pineapples and tomatoes. Vegetable juices are also useful, especially carrot juice.

      After a few days of an exclusive fruit diet, the patient may be given a nourishing alkaline-based diet. It should consist of 100 per cent natural foods, with emphasis on raw fruits and vegetables, particularly carrots, green leafy vegetables, cabbage, onion, garlic , cucumber, asparagus, beets, and tomatoes. A minimum requirement of high quality protein, mostly from vegetable sources such as almonds, millet, sesame seeds, sprouted seeds and grains, may be added to the diet.

      Dr. Ann Wigmore of Boston, U.S.A., the well-known naturopath and a pioneer in the field of living food nutrition, has been testing the effect of a drink made of fresh wheatgrass in the treatment of leukemia. She claims to have cured several cases of this disease by this method. Dr. Wigmore points out that by furnishing the body with live minerals, vitamins, trace elements, and chlorophyll through wheatgrass juice, it may be able to repair itself.

      Johanna Brandt, the author of the book ‘The Grape Cure‘ has advocated an exclusive grape diet for the treatment of cancer. She discovered this mode of cure in 1925, while experimenting on herself by fasting and dieting alternately in the course of her nine-year battle with cancer. She claimed to have cured herself by this mode of treatment. She recommends a fast for two or three days so as to prepare the system for the change of diet.

      After the short fast, the patient should have a grape meat every two hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. This should be followed for a week or two even a month or two, in chronic cases of long standing. The patient should begin the grape cure with a small quantity of 30, 60, to 90 grams per meal, gradually increasing this to double the quantity. In course of time, about 250 grams may safely be taken as a meal.

      Recent researches have shown that certain vitamins can be successfully employed in the fight against cancer and that they can increase the life expectancy of some terminal cancer patients. According to recent Swedish studies vitamin C in large doses can be an effective prophylactic agent against cancer. Noted Japanese scientist, Dr. Fukunir Morishige, and his colleagues who have been examining the healing potential of vitamin C for the last 30 years, have recently found that a mixture of vitamin C and copper compound has lethal effects on cancer.

      According to several studies, vitamin A exerts an inhibiting effect on carcinogenesis. It is one of the most important aids to the body’s defense system to fight and prevent cancer. Dr. Leonida Santamaria and his colleagues at the University of Pavia in Italy have uncovered preliminary evidence suggesting that beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A may actually inhibit skin cancer by helping the body thwart the cancer-causing process known as oxidation.

      Recent studies from all over the world suggest that a liberal use of green and yellow vegetables and fruits can prevent cancer. The 20-years old, ongoing Japanese study found that people who ate green and yellow vegetables every day had a decreased risk of developing lung, stomach, and other cancers. A Harvard University study of more than 1,200 elderly Massachusetts residents found that those who reported the highest consumption of carrots, squash, tomatoes, salads, or leafy green vegetables, dried fruits, fresh strawberries or melon had a decreased risk of cancer.

      The other useful measures are plenty of rest, complete freedom from worries and mental stress and plenty of fresh pure air.

  4. QUESTION:
    What nutritional recommendations may be useful for someone experiencing lethargy post chemotherapy treatments?
    I heard that greasy and spicy foods are not good for patients who suffered through chemotherapy but I need more details. Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      My recommendations is to check your saliva and urine ph with ph test strips available online or in some pharmacies twice per day. Your body is in a lot better condition to recover if your ph is alkaline rather than acid. Alkaline vegetables have many important minerals in them, and I would even recommend getting a champion juicer, and juicing a variety of organic greens together every day. Eat raw organic alkaline vegetables that have been dipped in hot water to kill germs. Best fruits would be lemons and avacodoes because they do not have sugars in them. Avocadoes have omega 3 and lemons make the body more alkaline. Sugars, additives, starches, saturated fats, processed foods etc tend to make the body more acid, and cancer and diseases love acidity. Sugar will give you more energy for the moment but it might put your recovery off for a later date, because it is so acidic. You might also read about electromagnetic fields, and avoid them as much as possible, and even turn off your bedroom breaker at night for a while. Get fresh air every excuse you have, and walk often even if it is slow and short at first.

  5. QUESTION:
    Is there any Alkaline diet for weight gain and Anemia?
    I am planning on making our diet alkaline; my colleague has advised me to do so for NF1 tumors. Actually I have been taking “Black Strap Molasses” for low iron content and I could see positive results.

    Wondering what alkaline diet products really work for gaining weight and anemia

    Please don’t suggest me ENSURE drink, I had noticed new tumor growth when I started drinking it.

    Serious replies please

    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      What is the Alkaline Diet?
      Other names: alkaline acid diet, acid alkaline diet

      An alkaline diet is a diet that emphasizes, to a varying degree, fresh fruit, vegetables, roots and tubers, nuts, and legumes.

      Our blood is slightly alkaline, with a normal pH level of between 7.35 and 7.45. The theory behind the alkaline diet is that our diet should reflect this pH level (as it did in the past) and be slightly alkaline. Proponents of alkaline diets believe that a diet high in acid-producing foods is disrupts this balance and promotes the loss of essential minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, and sodium, as the body tries to restore equilibrium. This imbalance is thought to make people prone to illness.

      Lack of Vitamin B2 foods( Riboflavin) ; B6 (Pyridoxine and Pyridoxamine);B9 ( Folic acid ) and B-12 or Cyanocobalamin) . can cause anemia.

      Vitamin B is water-soluble, so it must be replenished every day through the diet or supplements. There are many foods rich in vitamin B. Some natural sources include bananas, potatoes, tempeh, lentils, other whole grains, chili peppers, green vegetables, eggs, dairy products, and meats including turkey, tuna, and liver
      Wild salmon, avocado or maybe beans or sweet potatoes, all have B vitamins.

      Brewer's yeast, used to make bread and beer, is an excellent source of Vitamin B. Any food or beverage made with brewer's yeast is rich in vitamin B. However, consuming beer in excess will have adverse health results, and alcohol interferes with the body's absorption of vitamin B-1, so be careful not to defeat your own purpose.

      http://www.chimachine4u.com/vitamins.html

      Which foods are rich in vitamin B?

      whole grains, such as wheat and oats
      fish and seafood
      poultry and meats
      eggs
      dairy products, like milk and yogurt
      leafy green vegetables
      beans and peas

      Blackstrap molasses is a very good source of iron.

  6. QUESTION:
    Can cancer live in a high PH levels in the body?
    I have cancer and someone told me taking a half of teaspoon of baking soda, mixed with water and drinking it daily will not only kill cancer but prevent cancer from living in the body is that true?

    • ANSWER:
      No cells can live in a high pH-state. But cells (cancer cell as well as normal cells) can't live with a low pH inside either. A lot of metabolic processes are going in overdrive inside cancer cells. These result (among other things) in production of hydrogen ions.

      For cancer cells to be able to maintain their lives, they have to get rid of these excess hydrogen ions. There are numerous transport mechanisms, that help cancer cells do just that. The extrusion of hydrogen ions leads to a lower pH in the vicinity of the cancer, but this is a result of what goes on inside cancer cells. Not a condition for cancer cells to survive.

      In fact some of the transport systems are combined with bicarbonate (a base) in such a way that hydrogen ions will be eliminated inside the cancer cells by reacting with internalised bicarbonate. These cancer cells will consequently thrive better in a (slightly) alkaline environment.

      The body is by nature slightly alkaline with a pH around 7,4. Various regulatory mechanisms in your body work to maintain a stable slightly alkaline pH. This is necessary for the body to function properly.

      So one really can't (and shouldn't wish one could) make the body more alkaline/acidic. The rumours that claim that altering the body pH will prevent/cure cancer, and that this can be achieved through certain diets or supplements are false. The changes in urinary pH is simply a result of the body's regulatory mechanisms, where excess acid/base is eliminated through the kidneys.

  7. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies to detox the body?
    I have been experiencing adbominal bloating and problems with my skin lately. I have taken laxatives and herbal teas and nothing seems to help the bloatness. I want to cleanse my body from the inside out.......and just don't know how to do it!

    • ANSWER:
      Detoxification

      Home Remedies

      The body tends to heal itself if given the right support. Fruit, vegetables and herbs are a gentle way to promote healing.

      Herbs used in Detoxification

      Dandelion
      Dandelion is held in high regard as a detoxifier. Dandelion stimulates the elimination of toxins from every cell in the body. It is often used in comprehensive treatments for the liver. Dandelion also increases bile production and stimulates its flow to the gallbladder. The polysaccharide insulin found in dandelion is said to have white blood cell and immune-boosting properties.

      Licorice Root
      Licorice Root is regarded as an important herb for treating kidney ailments and is also recommended for the liver and respiratory tract. Licorice Root's antioxidant, antiviral, and antibody-stimulating properties make it a liver protectant and detoxifier.

      Cascara Sagrada
      Cascara Sagrada supports healthy bowel function by acting as a mild laxative. This herb can also be helpful in the treatment of gallstones and liver ailments. It also increases secretions of the stomach, liver and pancreas and is a potent cleansing herb.

      Black Walnut Hulls
      Black Walnut Hulls are known to help remove parasites from the intestinal tract and facilitate the removal of toxic buildup and fatty materials.

      Milk Thistle
      Milk thistle is best known as a liver tonic. The active ingredient is silymarin, which is reputed to repair liver damage due to alcohol, drugs (over-the-counter, prescription, and illicit), hepatitis, and exposure to toxins. In Germany, physicians are so impressed with the liver-protecting effects of milk thistle that they routinely prescribe this herb to patients with liver disorders. Milk thistle also strengthens and protects the liver in otherwise healthy people.

      Fruit and vegetable juices assist in detoxification.
      Fruit and vegetable juices are the cleansers, energizers, builders, and regenerators of the human system. A combination of either fresh, raw fruit or vegetable juices will supply all the enzymes, vitamins, minerals, protein and fats critical to increased vitality! By adding live juices to one's diet as a daily routine, many have experienced a rejuvenating effect and healing of various illnesses such as cancer, leukemia, arthritis, high blood pressure, kidney disorders, skin infections, liver disorders, alcoholism and smoking. Supplying the body with easily-absorbed nutrients, while the body is cleansing itself in the fasting state, avoids the dangers of total abstinence associated with water fasting. Be confident that this method is both safe and beneficial.

      Grapes: There are between 40 and 50 different varieties of grapes that come in a rainbow of greens, whites, reds and purples. Grapes fill the mouth with an explosion of delicious flavors. Grapes are an excellent source of potassium, which encourage an alkaline blood balance and also stimulate the kidneys and regulate heartbeat. The restorative power of grapes is phenomenal, cleansing the liver and removing the uric acid from the body. In France, many people go on a grape fast during harvest time. Studies have shown a lower incidence of cancer in the areas of France where this grape fast is practiced yearly.

      Asparagus: Available in early spring. It can be expensive due to the difficulty in cultivating. Its claim to fame is the amino acid aspargagine that is destroyed by cooking. Aspargagine is a strong diuretic, stimulating the kidneys. Asparagus is a great blood cleanser and excellent for healthy bowel maintenance.

      Parsley: Ancient civilizations have used parsley in medications and in poultices on wounds, boils, cysts and to draw the pus out of an infected cut. Parsley is one of the highest sources of life-giving chlorophyll, which acts like iron to oxidize the blood. Chlorophyll will help neutralize the strong odor of garlic, and is used in chewing gum to sweeten breath. It is a cleanser of the kidneys, liver, and urinary tract. Parsley is effective for upset stomachs by stimulating digestive enzymes. Excellent for the colon by encouraging the peristaltic wave in the intestines.

      Spinach: Never cook spinach. Oxalic acid is destroyed when heat transforms it into oxalic acid crystals that are harmful to the kidneys. It also binds to iron, making it unabsorbable.

      Sweet Potatoes
      Besides being a yummy source of beta-carotene, sweet potatoes and yams have an unusual health side effect: they can remove heavy metals from the body. In fact, doctors in the Soviet Union have prescribed a diet that's heavy on the spuds for factory workers continually exposed to toxic chemicals.

      Sweet potatoes contain something called "phytochelatins". This helps them bind to harmful substances like copper, cadmium, mercury and lead which most of us are exposed to on a regular basis from air pollution. The phytochelatins help pass these toxins out of the body."

      Cranberry Juice
      A powerful healing tonic filled with quinine, which changes to hippuric acid in the liver. Hippuric acid is able to assist in the removal of purines, uric acid, urea and toxic build-up in the prostate gland, testicles, kidneys and bladder.

  8. QUESTION:
    Which is latest and safest treatment for removing kidney stone?
    I am having invisible 5 mm kidney stone. The stone is not visible in sonography but visible in CT scan. I am having urine trouble and albumin is going going through urine whcih is to be stopped immediately. Therefore stone is required to be dropped immediately. Which is latest and safest treatment for removing kidney stone?

    • ANSWER:
      Renal Calculi*: Kidney Stones—Many of such patients, after 45 days of treatment, brought their excreted kidney stones with total relief.

      1.Black Tea Therapy—Drink one cup of black tea, the first thing in the morning. In case of nausea, keep 2 cloves or little sugar in the mouth. After 15 minutes, regular breakfast can be taken.
      How to prepare Black Tea? Put 1 tea spoonful of leaf tea [any tea will do] in one cup of water. Boil till it becomes half cup. Filter it and add half cup of hot water. Drink it hot for 12 to 15 days.

      (1) Before starting the treatment, gather the first urine of the patient in the morning in a glass and one will observe that this urine is not clear but hazy and has bad smell. It denotes that the kidneys are not functioning properly.
      ( 2 ) Put one cup of water to boil. Put one teaspoon of any tea in it. Do not add sugar or milk. Boil 1 cup of water till it is reduced to half a cup. Filter it, then add half a cup of regular water. Sip it hot. Regular breakfast can be taken after 15/20 minutes. It is possible that one may get nausea. In that case put some crystal sugar or 1 or 2 cloves in the mouth. Do not worry even if there is vomiting. Continue drinking this black tea for 10/12 days. And again examine the first urine. If it has become clear and there is no bad smell in it, it denotes that the kidneys have started functioning normally, continue the treatment for 15 days.
      (3) During the day, drink 2 glasses of silver charged water reduced from 8 glasses of water.
      Method for preparing silver charged water :
      Put 8 glasses (225 ml about each glass) in a stainless steel or earthen vessel. Put 30 to 40 grams of pure silver coins or a bar of -999 touch purity in the water. Clean this metal properly before putting it in to the water. (Please do not use Silver jewellery or utensil-these generally contain white metal which is very harmful to the kidneys.) Boil the water till it is reduced to 2 glasses. Filter it and keep it lukewarm in a thermos. And drink it three/four times during the day. This silver charged water will reactivate the kidneys, bladder and also help to reduce the excess heat from the body.
      ( 4 ) Drink 2 to 3 cups of green juice without adding salt or any spice to it.
      ( 5 ) Perform Acupressure treatment -
      Within just 15 days, you will observe amazing results. There will be a proper flow of urine and even if there is stone in the kidneys, that will break and be thrown out through the urine. When the kidneys start functioning properly, it will help the body to clear other toxins.
      (6) Remove the root cause. Before starting the treatment for repairing kidneys, find out the root cause and start the treatment for the same at the same time. Within just 50/75 days, the root cause will also be cured. Thus, patient will get a new, healthy life.
      Retention of water-Water content in the body is controlled by Pineal gland. When there are serious problems like V. D., Cancer, HIV/AIDS, etc. one by one the endocrine glands stop functioning properly and later on Pineal. This malfunctioning of the Pineal gland leads to the retention of water. This is misunderstood as the failure of the kidneys. And doctors restrict intake of water and other liquids. In such cases, when the patient takes proper treatment plus drinking black tea, the Pineal gland starts functioning normally and there is enough flow of urine and the problem of water retention gets cured.
      In fact, for the cure of the problem of the kidneys and removing of toxins (which are acidic), it is most necessary to repair the kidneys by drinking black tea, etc. and also increase the intake of green juices (which is alkaline) and which neutralizes the acidity of toxins.

  9. QUESTION:
    How does oatmeal prevent cancer?
    How does oatmeal prevent cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      What would make you think that people with cancer have a greater or lesser chance of getting or hosting cancer because they eat a certain amount of oatmeal?

      I guess one could do a controlled study, and see if patients with cancer have a higher or lower cell count in their bloodstream when they are eating oatmeal VS when they did not eat oatmeal.

      I don't know that this is based on sound research though.

      Diabetes can be improved with oatmeal, especially if you add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the oatmeal. By doing a simple blood sugar test on a subject every 15 minutes after eating oatmeal, it will demonstrate that oatmeal is turned into sugars more slowly, and this will prevent a spike of blood sugars in a diabetic person, and give them energy throughout the entire day.

      I have been reading about some other research that will kill cancer cells, by Dr. Warburg, who won a Nobel Prize for this research, where he discovered that by being more alkaline, you can keep cancer cells from reproducing. He shows that by exposing cancer cells to 8.0 PH or higher, the cancer can not reproduce, but lower than 5.0 PH cancer can reproduce much faster.

      So I stopped drinking 4.0 PH soft drinks, and rarely drink a low PH beer (about 5.0 PH) and am drinking 9.5 PH water, this helps stabilize my blood sugar levels, and prevents me from hosting cancer as well.

  10. QUESTION:
    What can i do for my daughter, who is undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia?

    • ANSWER:
      John Hopkins Update

      AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY ('TRY', BEING THE KEY WORD) TO ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY.

      Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins :

      1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until the y have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

      2.. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime..

      3 When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

      4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

      5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

      6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

      7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

      8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tum or size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

      9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

      10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

      11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

      *CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

      a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses, but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

      b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.

      c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

      d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyedat temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

      e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

      12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

      13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

      14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the bodies own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

      15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment.

  11. QUESTION:
    How do I know if I have lung cancer?
    I'm gonna turn 15 in a month and I've been smoking city's and pot on occasion also legal pot and I think I might have lung cancer

    • ANSWER:
      The first question about cancer should be what are the common symptoms in all kinds of cancers.

      So far as my knowledge goes - All types of cancer are found in people with low stomach acids. In cancer patients the glucose in cells does not burn in the presence of oxygen to produce 38 units of energy. In cancer patients the glucose ferments to produce 2 units of energy.

      There are no other common symptom in all various types of cancers.

      It has been found that in most of the cancer patients there is accumulation of acids just under the skin of cancer patients. But lot of people have been found to be very less acidic or highly alkaline.

      All the disease have something to do with stomach. Now let us start with stomach and down till excretion.

      Whatever we eat goes in the stomach. There is Hcl acid in the stomach and lot of other enzymes are added to the food and chyme (paste) in stomach or while going down in the small intestines or elsewhere.

      The food remains in the stomach for 4.30 to 5.00 hours. The food starts moving into small intestine after 20 to 30 minutes after eating. The stomach vibrates at the rate of 3-4 vibrations per minutes in order to mix the acids and enzymes and make a fine paste of food so that the same can be pushed in the small intestines.

      During this process of mixing of acids, enzymes and food lot of acidic gases are produced. Since these gases are light in weight it creates a pressure and pushes the food in the small intestines.

      Now if one drinks water or other liquids with the meals and goes to bed shortly afterwards. So solids and liquids in the stomach the person will feel discomfort and will tend to sleep towards left side. That will cause the acidic gases and acidic liquids to escape from the stomach. That will reach to blood. High acids in the blood will cause the gap in the tissues to increase to allow the acids to be stored outside the blood system. During the course of sports these acids are reabsorbed in the blood system. But usually sportsman are found to be drinking huge amounts of water shortly after sports and hence become suspectible to cancer.

      I have done small experiments in respect of last statements. If a person drinks water with meals and goes to bed immediatelt thereafter and gets up after 1 or 2 hours he will feel very thirsty. But if a person drinks water early say at 7 pm and eats dinner at 8 pm and goes to bed after 10 without drinking water or other liquids he will not feel thirsty after 1 or 2 hours of going to bed.

      Now when one starts drinking water before meals the entire process which causes cancer starts getting reversed. Within 7 to 10 days he has water trapped in the body which needs to be released. But since the fluid levels in blood system are sufficient this can not come back. That excess of water and acids outside the blood system is the reason for none burning of the glucose in the presence of oxygen.

      So after about 10 days the cancer patient should be given water fast for 24 hours. This water fast should be repeated every 7 days till the reports of the cancer patient becomes all right.

      During water fast the cancer patient should not be given any water or any other liquids. But the person should take normall meals. Sudden exposer to dehydrating environment should also be avoided. The should reason in bed or indoors so that dehydration does not take place at a fast pace. Slow dehydration is the key to cure cancer.

      One should expect recovery from cancer in 2 to 3 months. Though there could be complete recovery from cancer but the above system should be followed and person monitored for at least 1 year.

  12. QUESTION:
    Diagnosed with diabetes 5 days ago, first day home really worried about EVERYTHING!?
    I've just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and I'm freaked out about everything- from a little bit of chest pains, to exercising, to even eating certain foods. How have you dealt with the worries and stress?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      First of all, relax. This is easy to manage - if you want to take the time, and change your diet.

      Did they tell you your A1c level? You want to know this level.

      If it is above 9%, pay careful attention to the doctor's advice. Use the medication like your health depends on it.

      If the A1c is 7.5% or less, you need to take care o your health, but no need to worry to much.

      If your A1c is 5.4%, find a better doctor, people below 5.5% don't have diabetes.

      You might want to read both of these great books, they offer help to reduce your A1c level and explain what it is (average blood sugars level over about 3 months).

      Dr. Barnard's program for reversing Diabetes.

      The PH Miracle for Diabetes. By Dr. Young.

      Dr. Barnard has studies where people following his plan lose several extra pounds of weight, and reduce their medications by 50% or more. Even insulin resistant patients start to respond to much lower dosage of insulin.

      Dr. Young states that by becoming more acidic, people become insulin resistant, and the pancreas trys to make more insulin to compinsate, and finally gives up. Eventually both the Kidneys and Pancreas are overloaded. The kidneys are trying to get rid of both high sugar levels and high acidic in the body.

      Becoming more alkaline is also important if you want to avoid cancer. Dr. Warburg discovered that all cancer patients are acidic, and that by becoming more alkaline, you can kill the cancer cells. Dr. Warburg won a Nobel Prize.

      My friend has been using 9.5 PH alkaline water to surpress his cancer symptoms, and has gone from being in a wheelchair, unable to walk, to walking with a cane after one month, to walking normally 3 months later, to working at a suicide phone bank from 4 pm to midnight on Wednesdays. He is a 85 year old retired doctor, who felt he was to old for chemo, it would just damage his healthy cells to much.

      I think it is like a person running away from a bunch of cop cars and a helicopter. You just go just a little longer and very tired.

      I have two friends that you can talk to if you want, one with diabetes, and the doctor described above. Both are drinking high alkaline water, with no other medications at this time.

      Happy New Year!

  13. QUESTION:
    i am 14 years old and i am having pimple in the left breast it can cause breast cancer?
    please answer we are so worried about this any answers?

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing to worry about in your case. The following is my theory about helth, cancer and reversal of aging process.

      My limited experience with cancer patients tell me that cancer is curable. Moreover it does not seem to be having any side effects. Give it shot and save the world.

      The least it can do for you as per previous experiments are - complete relief from pain, better handling of chemo after effects, prolong the time expectancy by 100%.

      Out body becomes acidic because of wrong eating and resting habits. That causes body to store more water to ward off the bad effects of acid accumulation along with FAT and other minerals. These things though stored in the body can not be used because it is stored in much bigger sizes then the sizes that can be used by the body.

      So prevention should include making our body alkaline.
      Getting rid of excess stored water and then
      Getting rid of excess acids.

      Dehydration - When we drink water with meals or within 3-4 hours of a meal the stomach acids and toxins move from our blood to our body (cells of body outside blood system). This causes more water to be retained for managing those acids and toxins in cells (outside blood system) and we are continuously in the state of shortage of water. So even if we are drinking sufficient water we may be in dehydration mode. Since the blood acids levels are also on the higher side (due to shortage of water in the blood system) the kidneys will not be able to remove the toxins and acids efficiently. Over a period of time this will damage the kidneys as well.

      Hydration - When we drink water 30 minutes before meals movement of acids and toxins from blood to our body (outside blood system) stops. So the blood acid levels improve (become low - still on the higher side of the range) and there are more nutrients available in the blood system. This excess of acids and toxins in the blood system are removed from our blood by kidneys.

      Overhydration - When we keep on drinking water before the meals the blood acids drop to a level that kidneys stop removing the acids and toxins from our blood. Because of low blood acid levels the metabolism drops to very low levels. The kidneys does the removal job only if blood acids are in a particular range. This causes the water retention in the body. This also causes the cells death resulting from excess water. Excess cell death would eventually result in very yellow urine.

      The undermentioned routine aims at detoxification. It makes sure that toxins move from outside the blood system to blood system and from there outside the body thru kidneys.

      First 9 Glasses of water (all before meals) improves the blood acids levels (the blood acids levels are brought in the range which is best for kidney functioning). The movement of toxins and acids from blood system to our body (outside blood system) stops during this phase. Before the blood acids levels drop very low (when kidney functioning is impaired again) we reduce our water intake.

      In the second phase we try to get, the stores of the toxins stored in the body, in our blood system. Reducing water intake helps in that.

      In the third phase we increase blood acid levels to very level. This causes movement of toxins from our body (outside blood system) to blood system.

      In the next phase we again increase our water levels so that removal of acids from blood out of body thru kidney is more more efficient.

      To get relief follow the undermentioned routine.

      Do not sleep for at least 3 hours after a meal. This is most important. This is to ensure that we do not cause movement of toxins from our blood to our body (outside our blood system). This also helps in better repair of our body during sleep.

      1. First 2 days

      Drink 3 glasses of water before each meal. So total should be 9 glasses a day. Stop all other liquids.

      For example if you take lunch at 2.00 pm, take 1 glass each at 12.30, 1.00 and 1.30 pm. Some deviations from suggested times are ok.

      Do not drink water after 7 PM.

      2. Next 7 days

      Reduce water intake to 6 glasses day. 2 Glasses before each meal.

      3. Next 2 days

      Reduce water intake to 3 glasses day. 1 Glasses before each meal.

      4. Next 2 days

      Drink 1 glass of water in the entire day.

      5. Next

      Repeat 1,2,3 and 4.

  14. QUESTION:
    i believe that some diseases and conditions ar curable naturally like gallstones or cancer?
    for example cofee ,water,honey and lemons,low fat and carbs with plenty of fresh fruit and veg combine with daily excersise with approiate fluid intake and not skipping meals and having small meals and often will get rid of gallstones.do you believe that diseases and condtions like these ar curable and it just self neglect ie i've look in to gallstones on internet and this was what i was told

    • ANSWER:
      read dr youngs miricle. american medical association says all diseases and conditions come from a lack of vitamins or minerals in the diet causing an imballance that results in illness or unhealthy change. citric acid in citrus fruit dissolves calcium stones. diet variety and balance is the answer.
      I was told by a surgeons mother that she was diagnosed with cancer (lymphoma) and she was told by her son to eat only raw foods and that was raw vegetables and fruit and even raw fish and eggs...she said after 40 days on a raw diet the cancer was gone. I read about dr youngs miricle and it said cancer loves an acid environment. barley grass and wheat grass and alfalfa made the body alkaline so I shared this info with a few people who had cancer and so far I have not lost any of my patients who had cancer. they had other treatments but I believe this helped because one young man had mets to his bones and they looked like eggs on his back and after 3 weeks on this green grasses mixture in his diet the tumors could barely be seen and added years to his life. they may never go away but they shrunk down and slowed their growth. I saw it with my own eyes. the doctor said he had kidney function that went from nothing to normal in two weeks and he did not know why but whatever he was doing it worked. the doctor could not encourage herbal remedies or he could lose his liscense. I am a nurse and nutrition is allowed in my scope of practice.

  15. QUESTION:
    Does anybody know for sure how squmous cell cancer of the lung reacts to chemo?
    We have 2 spots on her right lung diagnosed as squmous cell. I need to have an idea of how well the cancer will shrink before surgery. Hopefully alot. Any experience with this? Preliminary ct scans show no spreading yet. PET scan to be analyzed later. MRI of the brain clean.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know.

      I can tell you this: Lung cancer has one of the worst prognosis there is. If the patient is still alive in 5 years after commencing therapy, even if they have been in a coma and are not expected to reawaken, that is called a success story, as long as they are cancer free. That is a fact.

      You should look into Gerson therapy, Budwig therapy, alkaline diet, filtering both drinking and bath water, raw 100percent vegan diet, hyperthermia treatments. At the very least, you should research what the Burzynski clinic has to offer. They do free clinical trials, and take some types of medical insurance. They are more conventional than the other therapies I mention, but without the terrible damage and life threatening sickness caused by chemotherapy. (Chemotherapy itself may kill more people than cancer. Not many people know that, but chem is very dangerous.)

      Burzynski clinic has real doctors and nurses, and I have read many good thing about them. Please, if you do not look into the other things I mention, then at least look into what Burzynski clinic has to offer. Here is a link:

  16. QUESTION:
    How to not get cancer?
    Foods to eat? What to avoid? Where to put the mobile phone? Can anything save one?

    • ANSWER:
      1) Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size

      2) Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

      3) When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

      4) When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due
      to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

      5) To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

      6) Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy
      cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

      7) Radiation, while destroying cancer cells, also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

      8) Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiationwill often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

      9) When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

      10) Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

      11) An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

      CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

      a) Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful.

Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

      e) Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties.

      Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

      12) Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in
      the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

      13) Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

      14) Some supplements build up the immune system, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements, like vitamin E, are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

      15) Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

      16) Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

      UPDATE FROM JOHN HOPKINS HOSPITAL , U S -

      1) No plastic containers in micro.
      2) No water bottles in freezer.
      3) No plastic wrap in microwave. Johns Hopkins has
      recently sent this out in its newsletters.

      This information is being circulated at Walter Reed
      Army Medical Center as well.
      a) Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast
      cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of
      our bodies.
      b) Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them
      as this releases dioxins from the plastic
      c) Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program
      Manager at Castle Hospital, was on a TV program to
      explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins
      and how bad they are for us.

      He said that we should not be heating our food in the
      microwave using plastic containers. This especially
      applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the
      combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases
      dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of
      the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as
      Corning Ware, Pyrex ceramic containers for heating
      food.

      You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So
      such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups,
      etc., should be removed from the container and
      heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you
      don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to
      use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc.

      He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast

      food restaurants moved away from the foam

      containers to paper.

      The dioxin problem is one of the reasons. Also, he
      pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just
      as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in
      the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat
      causes poisonous toxins to actually melts out of the
      plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a
      paper towel instead.

    cancer patients often develop endocrine disorders because?
    a. cancer cells sometimes secrete hormones inappropriately
    b. hormones are used to treat cancer
    c. cancers often destroy endocrine glands
    d. hormones cause cancers

    • ANSWER:
      Are you trying to get us to answer your test questions?

      Your test and the correct answers are based on what the book author wrote in their book, regardless of what is known to science this year, it is based on what the author believed was the correct science and best treatment when that book was written.

      Anyway I will not answer that question, but will suggest that you look up something else. Dr. Warburg discovered that cancer cells can be killed by exposing them to a 8.5 PH level, and that cancer requires a acidic host to reproduce, and he won a Nobel Prize for this discovery.

      I have a friend drinking alkaline 9.5 PH water to suppress his cancer symptoms, and is doing much better. So it does work.

      I think that my search for truth has shown me that we all seem to have cancerous cells going through us all the time, but only if you become acidic then you can become a host to cancer while another person who is more alkaline might never develop cancer.

      In a way, Dr. Warburg's research states that a alkaline person will not develop cancer, while an acidic person will, so this disorder will progress in a acidic person, not in a alkaline person.

  18. QUESTION:
    Is there any alternative for chemotherapy for carcinoma of stomach after surgery has been done.?

    • ANSWER:
      Quick point on conventional therapies (as a reply to David G). Most of their survival statistics are measured in 5 year survival rates. Interestingly, most people who get conventional treatment tend to have a dramatically diminished quality of life after their treatment, and then die about 5-8 years after conventional treatments. This essentially occurs because the conventional treatments don't deal with any of the underlying causes which made tumor manifest, never succeed in completely killing off the tumor cells, and destroy the body's immune system, so that when the tumor comes back the body is unable to hold it in check and dies (which normally takes a bit over 5 years). As a result, the cancer statistics are incredibly deceptive, and essentially use fraudulent science to promote their conclusions.
      From all the data I've seen, chemotherapy and radiation therapy (the latter actually directly turns cells cancerous), actually are worse than placebo for the patient. Surgery is better, but it's only effective if done early. Considering that you pay over 100,000 for the whole procedure and you die faster while suffering, it's a pretty bad deal ain't it?

      As far as alternative methods, I've seen a lot. Some of them I think are either crap, or not that effective (ie. they increase your survival rate by 5% a piece), and some of them I simply don't have enough direct experience with.
      That said, these are the approaches which I have seen produce amazing results repeatedly.
      a) Rife machines (assuming they are built correctly, which is a big if).
      b) Orgone accumulators (these are very hard to get ahold of)
      c) Dragon and Tiger Chi Gung.
      I've also seen these ones work quite well, but the effects were not as dramatic and I have less personal experience with them (although I think they're still valid enough to look into).
      a) stop eating refined sugar (and procssed foods if possible)
      b) going with a, if you can, ideally adopt the gerson protocol.
      c) (this relates to the first two), do something to shift your ph to being alkaline (either drink alkalinized water, or eat lots of fresh vegatables and abstain from processed foods...key parts of gerson's diet).
      d) Look into oxygenation therapy, intravenous injections of hydrogen peroxide tend to be the best, followed by ozone injections, following by drinking a few drops a day of food grade H2O2. The first 2 are better, but they require finding a REAL doctor who's does the practice. I've seen some people be helped a lot by drinking the peroxide too though.

      Some of the other alt med stuff might work, but I honestly can's actually vouch for it out of experience (and sadly although there is a big lockdown to keep working treatments off the market, not all the alt med people are out there for any reason except to make a quick bug).

      Hope that helps. If you'd like any more information or resources on the matter I'd be happy to provide them to you!

  19. QUESTION:
    whats the benefit of taking bicarbonates of soda at bedtime?

    • ANSWER:
      And the answer is :
      Bicarbonate of soda, better known as baking soda or sodium bicarbonate, has numerous uses--it's a cleaning agent, antacid, fire extinguisher and more. There also are interesting health benefits when you drink baking soda, which is alkaline, in water. Viruses and diseases such as colds, flu, cancer and even heart disease thrive in an acidic body, but cannot survive when your body is alkaline. The 2009 Journal of the American Society of Nephrology revealed a study of 134 patients with advanced kidney disease. Taking baking soda daily dramatically slowed down the progression of kidney disease, resulting in no need for dialysis.
      .Difficulty:
      Easy
      Instructions.Things You'll Need:
      Baking soda
      Measuring spoons
      Glass of water
      1To increase your body's pH, take 1/4 tsp. of baking soda dissolved in one-half glass of water on an empty stomach, once in the morning and again before bedtime. Acidity and alkalinity is measured by pH, which ranges from 0 to 14 with 7.0 being neutral; a pH above 7.0 is alkaline, and below 7.0 is acidic. Baking soda has the highest pH of 14. Create a healthy body by keeping your body's pH between 7.1 and 7.5.

      2Drink the baking soda and water solution at the very beginning of cold or flu symptoms, such as a runny nose or sneezing, to help kill the viruses. Keep your body alkaline by increasing fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.

      3If you're an athlete, swallow sodium bicarbonate supplements with water to buffer lactic acid buildup and improve your exercise performance. Ingest 0.3 g of sodium bicarbonate per 2.2 lb. of body weight, one to two hours before the event, drinking plenty of water.

      4Drink a glass of water with a half lemon or lime squeezed into it twice daily if you are unable to take baking soda and water. Lemons and limes are acidic but become alkaline in your body, raising your alkalinity almost as well as baking soda.

  20. QUESTION:
    how does having no gallbladder effect a persons body?

    • ANSWER:
      Since the gallbladder's job is to emulsify fats, much like detergent does to grease on dishes to make it water soluble, living without this organ means fat digestion might be impaired.

      There are few studies that address the possibility of long-term fat malabsorption, but some scientists postulate that in the absence of added bile salt supplements, a person without a gallbladder could become fatty acid deficient. Fats would go right through without important nutrients, like omega-3s and fat-soluble vitamins A and E, being absorbed.

      Some of the possible symptoms of these deficiencies are: ADHD, anxiety and other mood disorders, heart disease, dry hair and skin, arthritis, inflammation and vision impairment.

      There is another concern that without a gallbladder, the liver bile is not caught, acidified and stored, as it normally is, until fats are present. Instead, there is a constant dripping of alkaline bile into the intestine. Studies are inconclusive as to whether this causes an increased risk of right-sided colon cancer.

      Finally, many people experience ongoing diarrhea or increased bowel transit time. One study compared the transit time of cholecystectomized patients to that of irritable bowel syndrome sufferers.

  21. QUESTION:
    Alkaline water for dialysis patients????
    Hi all:

    I've been doing some extensive research on alkaline water and its benefits and I also seen those who think it's a bunch of crap but I have some hardcore evidence on several people I know that it's helping them and they have severe conditions. Well I need help - My husband is a dialysis patient - for 8 yrs NOT diabetic and no cancers etc.... he produces NO urine! he lost kidneys to strep throat 18 yrs ago. WILL THIS WATER HELP HIM? he is 42 and we do alot of natural stuff already and it is working -- like I said he has been on dialysis for 8 yrs and is active. But we want to continue to preserve the measure of health he has.... anyone have info on this?
    i think just saying it's crap to me is not giving me raw data or anything to "chew on" so to speak -- but seeing someone regain their vision after 8 yrs and start to urinate AGAIN and get off of 75% of their diabetic meds and the only thing he did was excercise a little and I mean a little like 20 mins a day and drink this water every day..... I kinda don't think that is placebo! altho I do know the mind is powerful I don't think it's that powerful

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, your body's pH can be changed by what you eat and drink. http://www.essense-of-life.com/info/foodchart.htm
      My mother-in-law is focusing on an alkaline diet to help her recover from colon and ovarian cancers. It has slowed down the progress of the disease drastically. Not sure about alkaline water, though. If you cannot get it, I would suggest artesian spring water, with distilled as the third choice. http://www.rense.com/1.mpicons/acidalka.htm

  22. QUESTION:
    when baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and carbonated drink are mixed, the resultant emits light. what happens?

    • ANSWER:
      Toothpaste: Use baking soda and add enough 3% H202 to make a paste or dip your brush in 3% H202 and brush. Hydrogen peroxide dissolves dental plaque, creates healthy gums, and whitens teeth. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide makes the best toothpaste.
      Normal human cells have a lot of molecular oxygen and a slightly alkaline pH. The cancer cell has an acid pH and lack of oxygen. Cancer cells will not survive in an oxygen environment. Cancer and all diseases do not like oxygen. Proper cellular utilization of oxygen requires diets containing adequate amounts of unsaturated fatty acids. Most common ailments affecting population are directly related to oxygen starvation. Asthma, emphysema, and lung disease are on the rise, especially in polluted metropolitan areas. Cases of constipation, diarrhea, intestinal parasites and bowel cancer are on the rise.

      Many of the new "miracle" drugs and nutritional supplements used to treat these conditions work by increasing cellular oxygen. The miracle nutrient, Coenzyme Q10, helps regulate intercellular oxidation. Organic germanium increases oxygen levels at the cellular level. Niacin and vitamin E promote tissue oxidation through their dilation of blood vessels. Vitamin E makes efficient use of available oxygen and acidophilus helps re-establish beneficial bacterial flora in the bowels. Hydrogen peroxide is only one of the many components that help regulate the amount of oxygen getting to your cells. The presence of hydrogen peroxide is vital for many other functions as well. Hydrogen peroxide is required for the production of thyroid hormones and sexual hormones, the production of interferon, dilation of blood vessels in the heart / brain and glucose utilization in diabetics.

      Germanium is a trace element / mineral, which promotes cell oxygen absorption. Germanium enhances the cell’s ability to generate energy by raising the cell’s oxygen supply. Organic Germanium-132, has never exhibited any toxic side effects. Germanium strengthens the immune system, normalizes high blood pressure / cholesterol and protects the body against cellular aberrations. Germanium stimulates the immune system in cancer patients as well as healthy individuals. The highest concentrations of germanium were found in medicinal plants: ginseng, shitake mushrooms, aloe vera, comfrey and garlic. Russian shelf fungus had the highest levels of germanium. The healing waters of Lourdes, France also have significant quantities of germanium. Germanium appears to significantly enhance the body's production of interferon. research suggests that germanium helps normalize the body's defenses in cancer patients.

      A single atom of oxygen is very reactive and is referred to as a free radical. We continually read that free radicals are responsible for all types of ailments and even premature aging. Our bodies create and use free radicals to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. White blood cells are responsible for fighting infection and foreign invaders (bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.) in the body by making hydrogen peroxide to oxidize all infections and invaders. Vitamin C helps fight infections by producing hydrogen peroxide, which stimulates the production of prostaglandins. Lactobacillus found in the colon and vagina also produce hydrogen peroxide. This destroys harmful bacteria and viruses, preventing colon disease, vaginitis, bladder infections and a host of other common ailments. When lactobacillus in the colon or vaginal are overrun with harmful viruses, yeast, or bacteria, an effective douche or enema solution can be made using 3 tablespoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide in 1 quart of distilled water. Friendly bacteria in the colon and vagina are aerobic, while most strains of harmful bacteria, viruses and cancer cells are anaerobic and cannot survive in the presence of oxygen or hydrogen peroxide.

      Hydroxyl radicals are formed when super oxide and hydrogen peroxide react together. To prevent damaging the cells, antioxidants and hydrochloric acid (muriatic acid) should be taken if the hydrogen peroxide formula is going to be used for a long period of time. Antioxidants come if different pill forms and in different food types. Antioxidants foods are cranberries, blueberries, aronia berries, pomegranates, etc. Nature's best antioxidant is a drop of clove oil under the tongue, which contains more than ten times the antioxidants that any berry does. Dentists have been using clove oil as an antiseptic in there profession for ages.

      Hydrogen peroxide helps: Adult Onset Diabetes, Allergies, Altitude Sickness, Alzheimer's, Anemia, Angina, Arrhythmia, Arthritis, Asthma, Bacterial Infections, Bronchitis, Cancer, Candida, Cardiovascular Disease, Cerebral Vascular Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Pain, Diabetic Gangrene, Diabetic Retinopathy, Digestion Problems, Emphysema, Epstein-Barr Infection, Food Allergies, Fungal Infections, Gangrene, Gingivitis, Headaches, Heart Disease, Herpes Simplex, Herpes Zoster, HIV Infection, Immune Disorders, Infectious Diseases, Inflammation, Influenza, Insect Bites, Liver Cirrhosis, Lupus Erythematosis, Migraine Headaches, Multiple Sclerosis, Parasitic Infections, Parkinson's Disease, Parkinsonism, Periodontal Disease, Pneumonia, Prostatitis, Pulmonary Diseases, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Shingles, Sinusitis, Sore Throat, Stroke & Memory Loss, Type II Diabetes, Ulcers, Vascular & Cluster Headaches, Viral Infections, Warts, Yeast Infections, etc. Some results from drinking hydrogen peroxide include: arthritis disappearing, high blood pressure normalizing, cancers going into remission, high energy levels returning, bowels regulated, alertness and increased memory, elimination of depression, etc. Hydrogen peroxide stimulates enzyme systems throughout the body, increasing metabolic rate, causing small arteries to dilate and increase blood flow, enhancing the body's distribution and consumption of oxygen while raising body temperature.

      Possible Reactions to using Hydrogen Peroxide include: Skin eruptions, nausea, sleepiness, unusual fatigue, diarrhea, colds (in head or chest), ear infections, boils, or any other method that the body uses to emit toxins from the body. This is the natural way for the body to cleanse and the natural cleansing will be of short duration, as you continue to maintain your program. Above all, even if you must decrease the dosage, continue the program, don't give up. If you get a cleansing reaction, you may want to increase the dosage to hasten the cleansing. A cleansing is the effect on the body of bacteria dying off, or various forms of poisons being released through the eliminative organs of the body, i.e. skin, lungs, kidneys and bowels. Remember: When hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with virus and streptococcus, it will liberate free oxygen. This may be happening in your stomach. If your stomach feels uneasy, it is only the hydrogen peroxide destroying the virus and streptococcus in your body.

      The dangers and side effects of hydrogen peroxide are few and conflicting. There have been two known fatalities in children who ingested 27% hydrogen peroxide and 40% hydrogen peroxide. A 2 year old female swallowed one mouthful of 35% hydrogen peroxide. She immediately began vomiting, followed by fainting and respiratory arrest. She experienced erosion and bleeding of the stomach and esophagus, but survived the incident. She was re-examined 12 days later, her stomach and esophagus had healed.

  23. QUESTION:
    Anybody knows Dr. Tullio Simoncini ?, Oncologist in Rome, Italy?
    My brother was recently biopsied with a nasopharengeal cancer stage II-b. This is a dreaded news for the family. In desperation for a cure I googled it and found this site about Dr. Tullio Simoncini. His approach and his remedy (or cure) seemed too good to be true. Any witness or testimony out there? We live in the Philippines, but Italy is not that far if the cure really works.

    • ANSWER:
      Lessons in Cancer and General pH Management
      International Medical Veritas Association

      Most of us are going to be surprised to find out that there is an oncologist in Rome Italy, Dr. Tullio Simoncini, destroying cancer tumors with sodium bicarbonate.[i] Sodium bicarbonate is safe, extremely inexpensive and unstoppably effective when it comes to cancer tissues. It’s an irresistible chemical, cyanide to cancer cells for it hits the cancer cells with a shock wave of alkalinity, which allows much more oxygen into the cancer cells than they can tolerate. Cancer cells cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen. Sodium bicarbonate is, for all intent and purposes, an instant killer of tumors. Full treatment takes only days, as does another cancer treatment that heats the cancer cells with laser generated heat. (At bottom see combining ph shift with heat.)

      Case one: A patient diagnosed with pulmonary neoplasm of the lung, underwent treatment with sodium bicarbonate, before submitting to surgery to remove part of the lung. Treatment consisted of sodium bicarbonate administered orally, by aerosol, and IV. After first treatment reduction of nodules and absorption was evident, and after 8 months was no longer visible at all. Treatments also reduced size of the liver and results were confirmed by both X-ray and CAT scan.

      Studies have shown how manipulation of tumour pH with sodium bicarbonate enhances some forms of chemotherapy.[iii] Proteins can be modified both in vivo and in vitro by increases in acidity. In fact pH is the regulatory authority that controls most cellular processes. The pH balance of the human bloodstream is recognized by medical physiology texts as one of the most important biochemical balances in all of human body chemistry. pH is the acronym for "Potential Hydrogen". In definition, it is the degree of concentration of hydrogen ions in a substance or solution. It is measured on a logarithmic scale from 0 to 14. Higher numbers mean a substance is more alkaline in nature and there is a greater potential for absorbing more hydrogen ions. Lower numbers indicate more acidity with less potential for absorbing hydrogen ions.

      Our body pH is very important because pH controls the speed of our body's biochemical reactions. It does this by controlling the speed of enzyme activity as well as the speed that electricity moves through our body. The higher (more alkaline) the pH of a substance or solution, the more electrical resistance that substance or solution holds. Therefore, electricity travels slower with higher pH. If we say something has an acid pH, we are saying it is hot and fast. Alkaline pH on the other hand, biochemically speaking, is slow and cool.

      In 1973, a study conducted by the Department of Occupational Health at Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem found that when cancerous breast tissue is compared with non-cancerous tissue from elsewhere in the same woman's body, the concentration of toxic chemicals such as DDT and PCBs was "much increased in the malignant tissue compared to the normal breast and adjacent adipose tissue."[iv] This should say something to the oncologists of the world about chemical etiologies that are going undiagnosed and untreated.

      Part of any successful cancer treatment includes chelation and detoxification of heavy metals and a host of toxic chemicals, which are all invading our bodies’ everyday. It is literally raining mercury, uranium contamination is increasing, lead we are discovering is even more toxic than anyone ever believed and is even in the bread that we eat, arsenic is in our chicken, the government still wants you to get your yearly mercury flu shot, dentists of course are still using hundreds of tons of mercury exposing patients to internalized toxic waste dumps (mercury vapors from hell), fluoride is still put in the water and chlorine is breathed in most showers. This just covers a small slice of the toxic disaster that is the hallmark of life in the 21st century. But oncologists have just not been able to understand that cancer patients are suffering from poisoning on a massive scale with all the chemicals scientists have already established cause cancer.

      The IMVA recommends alkaline foods and sodium bicarbonate so that the pH of the blood remains high, which in turn means that the blood is capable of carrying more oxygen. This in turn keeps every cell in the body at peak efficiency and helps the cell eliminate waste products. Detoxification and chelation will proceed more easily and safely under slightly alkaline conditions. Increased urinary pH reduces oxidative injury in the kidney so it behooves us to work clinically with bicarbonate.

      Patients receiving sodium bicarbonate achieved urine pHs of 6.5 as opposed to 5.6 with those receiving sodium chloride. This alkalinization is theorized to have a protective effect against the formation of free-radicals that may cause nephropathy.[v]
      — Dr. Michael Metro

      Body ph level changes are intense in the profundity of their biological effects. Even genes directly experience external pH. pH differentially regulates a large number of proteins. Increased oxidative stress, which correlates almost exponentially with ph changes into the acidic, is especially dangerous to the mitochondria, which suffer the greatest under oxidative duress. Epigenetics, which may now have begun eclipsing traditional genetics, commonly describes how factors such as diet and smoking, rather than inheritance influence how genes behave.

      The great advantage of knowing the prime cause of a disease is that it can then be attacked logically and over a broad front.
      — Dr. Otto Warburg

      Dr. Otto Warburg, two times Nobel Prize winner, stated in his book, The Metabolism of Tumors that the primary cause of cancer was the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory cell chemistry by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a fermentation process, which can be triggered only in the absence of oxygen at the cell level. What Warburg was describing was a classic picture of acidic conditions. Just like overworked muscle cells manufacture lactic acid by-products as waste, cancerous cells spill lactic acid and other acidic compounds causing acid pH.

      After we just saw how important sulfur is in human health and how useful a basic chemical like sodium thiosulfate can be, we now get a crash course in the power of sodium bicarbonate and the act of instantly turning cancer cells alkaline. Might as well shoot a guided cruise missile at them - so effective, safe, quick and precise is sodium bicarbonate, inexpensive as well. Just a few pennies a day of it will keep cancer further away, keeping it at arms length from ourselves, patients and loved ones. It is something we can use to treat our water with as well, excellent to put in distilled or reverse osmosis water or any water for that matter.

      A true understanding of cancer is impossible without understanding why some tissues in the body are deficient in oxygen and therefore prone to cancer. Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water (H2O) decomposes into H+ and OH-. When a solution contains more H+ than OH- then it is said to be acid. When it contains more OH- than H+ then it is said to be alkaline. When oxygen enters an acid solution it can combine with H+ ions to form water. Oxygen helps to neutralize the acid, while at the same time the acid prevents oxygen from reaching the tissues that need it. Acidic tissues are devoid of free oxygen. An alkaline solution is just the reverse. Two hydroxyl ions (OH-) can combine to produce one water molecule and one oxygen atom. In other words, an alkaline solution can provide oxygen to the tissues.

      The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Below 7 is acid and above 7 is alkaline. The blood, lymph and cerebral spinal fluid in the human body are designed to be slightly alkaline at a pH of 7.4.

      At a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at pH 8.5 cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live. This has given rise to a variety of treatments based on increasing the alkalinity of the tissues such as vegetarian diet, the drinking of fresh fruit and vegetable juices, and dietary supplementation with alkaline minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, cesium and rubidium. But nothing can compare to the instant alkalinizing power of sodium bicarbonate for safe and effective treatment of cancer.

      Like magnesium chloride or sulfates are excellent emergency medicines, basic chemicals, nutritional in nature, sodium bicarbonate is a nutritional medicine meaning it cannot and will not end up controlled by CODEX. To control bicarbonate they would have to demand mothers stop making cake with it. We might thus identify sodium bicarbonate as an emergency medicine for cancer with the above supporting approaches working on broader levels to help overall physiology change to a degree where body chemistry is unfavorable for new cancer growth.

      Cancer seems to grow slowly in a highly acid environment (because the acids cause it to partially destroy itself) and may actually grow more quickly as your body becomes more alkaline prior to reaching the healthy pH slightly above 7.4 where the cancer becomes dormant. Therefore it is important to get pH above 7.4 quickly. Once one has achieved a pH above 7.4, it is useful to monitor saliva pH regularly to ensure that the body remains sufficiently alkaline.

      Earlier and more frequent use of sodium bicarbonate was associated with higher early resuscitability rates and with better long-term neurological outcome. Sodium bicarbonate is beneficial during CPR.[vi]

      “The therapeutic treatment of bicarbonate salts can be administered orally, through aerosol, intravenously and through catheter for direct targeting of tumors.” All of Dr. Tullio Simoncini’s treatments with sodium bicarbonate are directed as specifically as possible to the organs involved, for example, vaginally as well as abdominally into the peritoneal space for cervical cancer, through the hepatic artery for liver cancer in order to get the solution as close to the affected area as possible. Sodium bicarbonate administered orally, via aerosol or intravenously can achieve positive results in most tumors, including the brain, while others, such as the serious ones of the bones can remain unaffected. Dr. Simoncini, with the help of interventionist radiologists was able to reach those areas of the body that had previously been inaccessible. This was achieved through positioning appropriate catheters either in cavities for peritoneum and pleura, or in arteries to reach other organs.[vii]

      The most effective measure to treat RT-induced mucositis in patients with head and neck cancer is frequent oral rinsing with a sodium bicarbonate rinse, to reduce the amount of oral microbial flora.[viii]

      Case two: A nine-year-old child is hospitalized and diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma on the right humerus. Despite several chemotherapy cycles surgery removed the humeral bone. Growth of three tumor masses continued despite continued efforts to stop progression. Sodium bicarbonate salts treatment were then started administered by catheter into the right sub-clavian artery in order to administer the salts (phleboclysis of 500 cc at five per cent) directly on the tumoral masses. Of the 3 masses shown by the scographic scan of May 7, 2001, whose size is respectively:
      a. 6,5 cm
      b. 4,4 cm
      c. 2,4 cm

      After the sodium bicarbonate salts treatment only one tumor was left, with a size of only 1.5 cm, which is most likely residual scarring, as shown by the echography of September 10, 2001.

      Sodium bicarbonate injection is also indicated in the treatment of metabolic acidosis which may occur in severe renal disease, uncontrolled diabetes, and circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe dehydration, extracorporeal circulation of blood, cardiac arrest and severe primary lactic acidosis. Sodium bicarbonate is further indicated in the treatment of drug intoxications, including barbiturates. Sodium carbonate has been found effective in treating poisoning or overdose from many chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs by negating the cardiotoxic and neurotoxic effects. [ix]

      Sodium bicarbonate is useful in treating neurological disorders in children.

      Knowledge of sodium bicarbonate is important for parents because the rate of childhood cancer is growing exponentially. But parents who resist the radiation burning, cutting and the lethal chemicals are regularly hauled before the courts only to have their children taken away from them. Oncologists are increasingly resorting to the justice system to have children made wards of the courts who then turn them over to medically irresponsible practitioners. It is inexcusable separating a child from his mother and father in the middle of a medical crisis. Adding to the stress by tormenting patients’ hearts and souls has nothing to do with safe or effective medicine. The naked truth is doctors and medical institutions have not earned the necessary trust for this level of intervention in people’s lives. With patient safety slipping year by year,[x] children are not safe in hospitals, much less so if forced at gunpoint from their parents embrace.

      An extremely simple therapy used by physicians who treat autism is to supply a mild antidote that neutralizes the excess acids. The most convenient product is a nonprescription drug called AlkaSeltzer Gold™. Do not use any other kind of AlkaSeltzer™. AlkaSeltzer Gold™ is simply a very safe product (sodium and potassium bicarbonate) that helps to neutralize excess acids of any kind.
      — Dr. William Shaw
      Biological Treatments for Autism and PDD

      One mother wrote, “It worked so well for both of my children that the die-off was an uneventful experience, even though they both had very high levels of yeast.” The restoring of acid/alkaline balance also relieves many allergies. “These children also had grave disturbances in electrolyte chemistry, and tended to be acidotic (low CO). The data that unfolded was fascinating and clearly earmarked the acidosis and hypoxic state (low serum bicarbonate = low O2 levels). Potassium bicarbonate, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate and the like were used. Now we began to understand why so many children responded to Buffered C (potassium bicarbonate, calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate), and others needed a more specific buffer (in some children for example niacin was grossly depleted and they required niacin bicarbonate),” wrote Patricia Kane.

      The acid/alkaline balance is one of the most overlooked aspects of health, though many have written much about it. In general, the American public is heavily acid, excepting vegetarians.

      Case three: A 62-year-old patient undergoes surgery in December 1998 for endometrial adenocarcinoma, followed by successive cycles of radiotherapy and anti-hormone therapy. Following the thickening of the peritoneum and the growth of several lymph nodes due to carcinosis; from the clinical point of view, the patient’s condition decayed with the presence of exhaustion, general swelling, intestinal meteorism, irregularity of evacuation, steady feeling of heaviness and blood pressure instability. Treatment with a 5% sodium bicarbonate solution administered alternately thru an endoperitoneal catheter and via IV showed rapid improvement to a normal condition of health. A final CAT scan confirms the regression of the peritoneal carcinosis and a stabilization of the size of the lymph nodes when compared to the preceding year.

      The kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure, military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize the urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes excretion of the nontoxic uranium-carbonate complex. The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate diminishes the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys.[xi]

      Case four: A 40-year-old patient underwent surgical intervention (left radical mastectomy) for mammarian carcinoma seven months earlier. After three months of chemotherapy, the patient is affected by: “diffused pulmonary and hepatic metastasis; bone metastasis particularly to the fifth and sixth lumbar vertebrae, with invasion and compression of the medullar channel, which is causing extreme pain which makes the patient unresponsive to any treatment.” All pain suppressant drugs – morphine included – are totally ineffective and the patient is totally prostrate even unable to sleep. Believing that fungal colonies amassed in the medullar channel will respond to administration of sodium bicarbonate salts, lumbar injections are begun.

      Dr Tullio Simoncini recounts: “As I administer it by slowly injecting 50 cc of sodium bicarbonate solution at 8.4 %, the patient tosses and with a thread of a voice confesses to me that she has slept only two hours in the last week. Exhausted, she whispers to me: “If only I could sleep half an hour tonight.” But the day after, she calls me on the phone and says: “I have slept all night”. After two more lumbar injections of the bicarbonate salts in the next month, the pain disappeared completely. Magnetic Resonance imaging reports performed before and after treatment were defined by hospital head of the radiology department as "shocking."

      Sodium bicarbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is commonly used as an antacid for short-term relief of stomach upset, to correct acidosis in kidney disorders, to make the urine alkaline during bladder infections and to minimize uric acid crystallization during gout treatment. Prescription sodium bicarbonate products are given by injection to treat metabolic acidosis and some drug intoxications. Sodium bicarbonate is available as a nonprescription medical as well as a general house hold item. It is also used with other non-prescription drugs for short-term treatment of various conditions to treat anything from fever to moderate pain.

      Sodium bicarbonate possesses the property of absorbing heavy metals, dioxins and furans. Comparison of cancer tissue with healthy tissue from the same person shows that the cancer tissue has a much higher concentration of toxic chemicals, pesticides, etc.

      Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes acids present in gases (in particular hydrochloric acid, suphur dioxide, hydrofluoric acid) to form sodium salts (sodium chloride, sodium sulphate, sodium fluoride, sodium carbonate), which are all known as Residual Sodium Chemicals. Sodium bicarbonate can be made into a paste salve with vinegar, it relieves burning from bug stings (particularly bee stings), poison ivy, nettles, and sunburn. It is used as an antacid to treat acid indigestion and heartburn. Mixed with water in a 10% solution can soften earwax for removal.

      Substituting a sodium bicarbonate solution for saline infusion prior to administration of radiocontrast material seems to reduce the incidence of nephropathy.[xii]
      — Dr. Thomas P. Kennedy
      American Medical Association

      Because sodium bicarbonate has long been known and is widely used, it has many other names including sodium hydrogen carbonate, sodium bicarb, baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda, bicarb soda, saleratus or bicarbonate of soda. It is soluble in water. This white solid is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. It has a slight alkaline taste resembling that of sodium carbonate. It is a component of the mineral natron and is found dissolved in many mineral springs. It is also produced artificially. World wide production is on the scale of 100,000 ton/year. Sodium bicarbonate is primarily used in cooking (baking) where it reacts with other components to release carbon dioxide, that helps dough "rise."

      It is commonly used to increase the pH and total alkalinity of the water for pools and spas. Sodium bicarbonate can be added as a simple solution for restoring the pH balance of water that has a high level of chlorine. It is sometimes used in septic tanks to control pH and bacteria.

      Sodium bicarbonate-rich mineral water in conjunction with a low-salt diet may have a beneficial effect on calcium homeostasis.[xiii]

      Distilled water is not safe, it lacks bicarbonates and minerals and yes, it is acid forming to the body. Yet it is an excellent aid in detoxification and chelation for its purity pulls on toxicities in the body. Part of the reason why our body is acid is that it lacks enough bicarbonate necessary to neutralize the acid. Whenever the water lacks the proper bicarbonates to neutralize the water in distilled water your body basically becomes a little more acid. But we can easily treat distilled or reverse osmosis water by adding bicarbonate and magnesium and perhaps even some sodium thiosulfate. (The art and science of water treatment will be covered in The Waters of Life, another IMVA publication due out later this year. The conscious use of water favorably increases medical outcomes, often it even determines the prognosis. You cannot separate out hydration from pH. Dehydration would certainly push the body toward acidity.)

      pH of the blood is the most important factor to determine the state of the microorganisms in the blood.

      The native chemical and physical properties of sodium bicarbonate account for its wide range of applications, including cleaning, deodorizing, buffering, and fire extinguishing. Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes odors chemically, rather than masking or absorbing them. Consequently, it is used in bath salts and deodorant body powders. Sodium bicarbonate tends to maintain a pH of 8.1 (7 is neutral) even when acids, which lower pH, or bases, which raise pH, are added to the solution. Its ability to tabletize makes it a good effervescent ingredient in antacids and denture cleaning products. Sodium bicarbonate is also found in some anti-plaque mouthwash products and toothpaste.

      Sodium bicarbonate also is indicated in severe diarrhea which is often accompanied by a significant loss of bicarbonate. Vigorous bicarbonate therapy is required in any form of metabolic acidosis where a rapid increase in plasma total CO2 content is crucial † e.g. cardiac arrest, circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe dehydration , and in severe primary lactic acidosis or severe diabetic acidosis.

      Sodium Bicarbonate Injection, USP is administered by the intravenous route. In cardiac arrest, a rapid intravenous dose of one to two 50 mL vials (44.6 to 100 mEq) may be given initially and continued at a rate of 50 mL (44.6 to 50 mEq) every 5 to 10 minutes if necessary (as indicated by arterial pH and blood gas monitoring) to reverse the acidosis. Caution should be observed in emergencies where very rapid infusion of large quantities of bicarbonate is indicated. Bicarbonate solutions are hypertonic and may produce an undesirable rise in plasma sodium concentration in the process. of correcting the metabolic acidosis. In cardiac arrest, however, the risks from acidosis exceed those of hypernatremia.

      In the current system, if a promising compound can’t be patented, it is highly unlikely ever to make it to market — no matter how well it performs in the laboratory or in emergency room situations. The hormone melatonin,[xiv] sold as an inexpensive food supplement in the United States, has repeatedly been shown to slow the growth of various cancers when used in conjunction with conventional treatments. Dr. Paolo Lissoni, another Italian oncologist has written many articles about this hormone and conducted clinical trials. But he has despaired over the pharmaceutical industry’s total lack of interest in his treatment approach.

      We need a new approach to fight cancer, one that will work safely and effectively since the majority of us are now destined to have to suffer through cancer at one point or another in our lives. The situation in the field of oncology is horrendous and in the area of childhood oncology they have earned their place in the book The Terror of Pediatric Medicine, (which one can download as a free e-book.)

      Most people today cringe at the idea of finding a cancer then slashing, burning and poisoning it to smithereens. Most would agree that the mainstream cancer approach offers only marginal benefits at best, and providers push screening and aggressive treatment in part because they have nothing else to give, and also because it’s very profitable.

      If the body’s cellular metabolism and pH is balanced it is susceptible to little illness or disease.

      Since 1971, when President Nixon declared war on cancer, the budget of the National Cancer Institute has increased to .8 billion from half a billion and cancer rates are still going up. For most of the past half-century, medical treatment of invasive tumors like those of the breast and colon has relied mainly on drugs, radiation or both, in effect carpet-bombing the DNA of cancer cells. These highly toxic treatments do not address the root causes of cancer and are extremely dangerous, medical approaches involving the highest risks.

      The great variety of cancers must reflect a fundamental mechanism by which the disease arises, one that has not been so clearly apparent until now.

      Though allopathic medicine already uses sodium bicarbonate it will not any day soon turn to its own arsenal of already available safe and inexpensive medications like sodium bicarbonate or magnesium chloride. The medical industrial complex seems unwilling to change its views on cancer so patients will need to quietly ask their doctors for intravenous bicarbonate without specifying it as a substance they want to use to cure their cancer. It will be easier to find someone if one approaches with a need to treat acidic conditions than the actual cancer. Few doctors are willing to risk their licenses so it is better not to put them in an uncomfortable situation that they cannot control.

      The closer the pH is to 7.35 - 7.45, the higher our level of health and well being and our ability to resist states of disease.

      Sadly this does not address the need for the use of catheters which target tumors more directly thus pushing us toward a more complete protocol that will target cancer in a more general and comprehensive way. This needs to be done anyway because killing the tumor with a rush of alkalinity that provokes an oxygen rush into the cells will not prevent the condition from reoccurring. Though we can think that acidity is a basic cause of cancer a more basic cause is addressed when we look at what leads to the acidic conditions that are so prevalent in our bodies today.

      Sodium bicarbonate is an anti-fungin substance that is very diffusible and thus very effective.

      Dr Tullio Simoncini says, “It is useful to consider the extreme sensitivity of fungi to saline and electrolytic solutions. These solutions, because of their extreme capacity for diffusion, are able to reach all the myceliar biological expressions, including the most infinitesimal ones. Salts and bicarbonates, by making the “terrain” completely inorganic, eliminates the slightest organic fonts that fungi could use for nourishment. In this context, sodium bicarbonate, which is currently used in children’s oral candidoses, appears to be a simple and handy weapon capable of uprooting, inhibiting, or attenuating any neoplastic formation wherever it is possible to easily apply it.”

      Cancer is actually a four-letter word — ACID, especially lactic acid as a waste product due to the low oxygen level and waste products of yeast and fungus.

      For centuries, medicated baths have been one of the first lines of treatment for psoriasis. Even today, with sophisticated immunosuppressive treatments available, Dead Sea salts and spa waters are recognized to be beneficial in the management of psoriatic patients.

      To assess statistically the efficacy of sodium bicarbonate baths in psoriasis patients, thirty-one patients with mild-moderate psoriasis were studied. Almost all patients who used NaHCO3- reported a statistically valuable improvement. NaHCO3- baths reduced itchiness and irritation; in general, the patients themselves recognized a beneficial impact on their psoriasis, so much so that they have continued to bathe in NaHCO3- even after the end of the study. [xv]

      “Sodium bicarbonate therapy is harmless, fast and effective because it is extremely diffusible. A therapy with bicarbonate for cancer should be set up with strong dosage, continuously, and with pauseless cycles in a destruction work which should proceed from the beginning to the end without interruption for at least 7-8 days. In general a mass of 2-3-4 centimetres will begin to consistently regress from the third to the fourth day, and collapses from the fourth to the fifth. Generally speaking, the maximum limit of the dosage that can be administered in a session gravitates around 500 cc of sodium bicarbonate at five per cent solution, with the possibility of increasing or decreasing the dosage by 20 per cent in function of the body mass of the individual to be treated and in the presence of multiple localisations upon which to apportion a greater quantity of salts,” instructs Dr Simoncini.

      In the early stages of acidic pH in the body’s tissues, the warning symptoms are mild. These include such things as skin eruptions, headaches, allergies, colds, flu and sinus problems. These symptoms are frequently treated (manipulated) with antibiotic drugs and suppressive medications. The longer and the deeper we become acidic the more our illness takes hold so it’s best to fight acidic conditions early on and in every presenting clinical situation. Certainly a highly toxic drug like anti viral Tamiflu won’t do a fraction of the job sodium bicarbonate will do especially if it’s combined with magnesium chloride and iodine as well as high levels of vitamin C.

      In late stages of acidic pH we need to turn to the most alkaline minerals to increase our throw weight of alkalinity into cancer cells. Mass spectrographic and isotope studies have shown that potassium, rubidium, and especially cesium are most efficiently taken up by cancer cells. This uptake was enhanced by Vitamins A and C as well as salts of zinc and selenium. The quantity of cesium taken up was sufficient to raise the cell to the 8 pH range. [xvi]

      There seems little grace left in medicine and it is a disgrace that allopathic medicine does not even use its own emergency medicines, proven heavies like magnesium sulfate and chloride, sodium bicarbonate and iodine to anywhere near a thousandth of a percent of their real medical potentials.

      Combining pH shift with Heat

      In the opening paragraph of this chapter we mentioned killing cancer cells with lasers, with heat.

      Give me a chance to create fever and I will cure any disease.
      — Parmenides
      2,000 years ago

      Fever is one of the body's own defensive and healing forces, created and sustained for the deliberate purpose of restoring health. The high temperature speeds up metabolism, inhibits the growth of the invading virus or bacteria, and literally burns the enemy with heat. Fever is an effective protective and healing measure not only against colds and simple infections, but against such serious diseases as polio and cancer.

      The idea of destroying cancer with heat is certainly not new and has been widely accepted for a very long time, but has had very limited applications because it was finally concluded that, in order to ensure destruction of the cancerous growth, it is necessary to reach a temperature deadly to healthy cells as well. Many attempts have been made to bypass this problem and some methodologies have been developed like: localized hyperthermia, laserthermia, radio-fractionated hyperthermia and TTT. But they all have limitations and cannot complete the job, because they cannot achieve total necrosis and, unless the entire mass of neoplastic tissue is destroyed, the cancer will continue to grow. But:

      Hyperthermia gives cancer a hard time:

      1. removing accumulations of stored toxic chemicals that cause cancer

      2. improving circulation so that tissues are both nourished with oxygen and flushed of acidic metabolic wastes

      3. weakening or even killing cancer cells that have a lower tolerance for heat than healthy cells.

      Thus we should easily conclude that far-infrared sauna treatments are going to help a cancer sufferer no matter which way we slice the treatment protocol. But for a more targeted heat to kill cancer tumors we have Dr. Antonella Carpenter who has perfected the treatment of cancer cells with heat through her use of lasers. She generates the death of the cells by suffocation via heat. Dr Carpenter, a physicist with a clinic in Little Rock, says, “As long as the entire neoplastic mass is exposed to the laser light, for the correct amount of time, the success is complete and the results, as well as the healing stages, are always the same.” Her cancer treatment is called Light Induced Enhanced Selective Hyperthermia, which in itself pretty much summarizes all the characteristics of this new therapy. With this form of treatment cancer cells reach a deadly temperature level quickly and are subject to irreversible damage and therefore die, either immediately or within 48 hours.

      In a separate chapter we will be talking about hyperthermia in another context, that of the hot bathtub which we will learn to fill with healing substances like sodium bicarbonate. We will be creating our own hot springs, healing pools that will do wonders for our health. Medical treatments of the first order can be had right inside your very own bathtub.

  24. QUESTION:
    is cancer a hereditary disease or a life style disease ?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      I was reading a very good book on diabetes and came to the conclusion that you are just as likely to inherit diabetes from your parents by the using their cookbook as much as your genes. This is because identical twins are only 40% predisposed to get type 1 diabetes if one gets it. Diet plays a major role in the spread of diabetes.

      Cancer is even more related to your diet. While there is not a "Food" that will cause cancer, it is the amount of acidic things that you eat that can cause you to be a host to cancer, verse not being a host to cancer.

      Dr. Otto Warburg discovered that it requires an acidic host to reproduce cancer and if exposed to 8.5 PH cancer cells will die. Cancer can not reproduce below 8.0 PH and this all cancer patients are acidic.

      You can do a google search for Alkaline food list and Acidic food list, and see the results.

      I have been drinking 9.5 PH water for about 6 months and I find it gives me more energy, and I feel I will not be able to host cancer. I have another friend with brain cancer, and the 9.5 water has allowed him to walk without a cane again, and live a normal life. He is taking less medication, and not using pain killers anymore.

  25. QUESTION:
    does any one know Dr. Sandhya Sridhar she spoke in sun tv last week about cancer. its an emergency?

    • ANSWER:
      My limited experience with cancer patients tell me that cancer is curable. Moreover it does not seem to be having any side effects. Give it shot and save the world.

      The least it can do for you as per previous experiments are - complete relief from pain, better handling of chemo after effects, prolong the time expectancy by 100%.

      Out body becomes acidic because of wrong eating and resting habits. That causes body to store more water to ward off the bad effects of acid accumulation along with FAT and other minerals. These things though stored in the body can not be used because it is stored in much bigger sizes then the sizes that can be used by the body.

      So prevention should include making our body alkaline.
      Getting rid of excess stored water and then
      Getting rid of excess acids.

      Dehydration - When we drink water with meals or within 3-4 hours of a meal the stomach acids and toxins move from our blood to our body (cells of body outside blood system). This causes more water to be retained for managing those acids and toxins in cells (outside blood system) and we are continuously in the state of shortage of water. So even if we are drinking sufficient water we may be in dehydration mode. Since the blood acids levels are also on the higher side (due to shortage of water in the blood system) the kidneys will not be able to remove the toxins and acids efficiently. Over a period of time this will damage the kidneys as well.

      Hydration - When we drink water 30 minutes before meals movement of acids and toxins from blood to our body (outside blood system) stops. So the blood acid levels improve (become low - still on the higher side of the range) and there are more nutrients available in the blood system. This excess of acids and toxins in the blood system are removed from our blood by kidneys.

      Overhydration - When we keep on drinking water before the meals the blood acids drop to a level that kidneys stop removing the acids and toxins from our blood. Because of low blood acid levels the metabolism drops to very low levels. The kidneys does the removal job only if blood acids are in a particular range. This causes the water retention in the body. This also causes the cells death resulting from excess water. Excess cell death would eventually result in very yellow urine.

      The undermentioned routine aims at detoxification. It makes sure that toxins move from outside the blood system to blood system and from there outside the body thru kidneys.

      First 9 Glasses of water (all before meals) improves the blood acids levels (the blood acids levels are brought in the range which is best for kidney functioning). The movement of toxins and acids from blood system to our body (outside blood system) stops during this phase. Before the blood acids levels drop very low (when kidney functioning is impaired again) we reduce our water intake.

      In the second phase we try to get, the stores of the toxins stored in the body, in our blood system. Reducing water intake helps in that.

      In the third phase we increase blood acid levels to very level. This causes movement of toxins from our body (outside blood system) to blood system.

      In the next phase we again increase our water levels so that removal of acids from blood out of body thru kidney is more more efficient.

      To get relief follow the undermentioned routine.

      Do not sleep for at least 3 hours after a meal. This is most important. This is to ensure that we do not cause movement of toxins from our blood to our body (outside our blood system). This also helps in better repair of our body during sleep.

      1. First 2 days

      Drink 3 glasses of water before each meal. So total should be 9 glasses a day. Stop all other liquids.

      For example if you take lunch at 2.00 pm, take 1 glass each at 12.30, 1.00 and 1.30 pm. Some deviations from suggested times are ok.

      Do not drink water after 7 PM.

      2. Next 7 days

      Reduce water intake to 6 glasses day. 2 Glasses before each meal.

      3. Next 2 days

      Reduce water intake to 3 glasses day. 1 Glasses before each meal.

      4. Next 2 days

      Drink 1 glass of water in the entire day.

      5. Next

      Repeat 1,2,3 and 4.

  26. QUESTION:
    Is this true about lemons curing cancer?
    Just cut 2-3 thin slices of lemon and put it in a cup containing drinking water. The water will become "alkaline water". Drink for the whole day, just by adding more water. Take it as drinking water everyday. It is good for health.

    This is the latest in medicine, effective for cancer!

    Read carefully & you be the judge

    Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy

    Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease.

    Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?

    As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types.

    Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer . It is considered also as anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.

    The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that
    It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas

    The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Aureomycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

    Institute of Health Sciences, 819 N. L.L.C. Cause Street , Baltimore , MD1201

    • ANSWER:
      So you believe that putting lemon (Lemon juice is very acidic with a pH around 2-3) in a glass of water will make the water alkaline. And drinking this will make a cancer go away?

      Go get some litmus paper and test the first claim out for yourself.

      As for the second part, you can't conclude directly from a study on cancer cell lines in dishes/rodents to effects in real human cancers.

      Cancer is a collective term for approximately 200 different diseases. Every cell type in your body can (in principle) develop into its own type of cancer. On top of that individual cancer cells in every cancer are also different from one another.

      In a cancer cell line, all the cancer cells are identical. This is one reason why you can't deduce from a cell line study that it will work in patients. A comparison of drug performance in mouse models with subsequent clinical trials shows that drugs which reduce tumour bulk by 60% do not necessarily show efficacy in human trials: http://www.nature.com/bjc/journal/v84/n10/pdf/6691796a.pdf
      The drugs were tested on a whole range of different cancer types. It was not even possible to deduce effect on specific cancer types from effects in on cell lines from these specific cancer types (or mice studies using the same specific types of cancer).

      To know if a substance in lemon is better than other chemoterapeutics (often also derived from plants), you need to do controlled trials. Since your source does not refer to any such trials (and since no such trials can be found in a search of the medical literature), the claim you present must be regarded as cancer quackery.

  27. QUESTION:
    My grandpa has cancer, help please?
    Im 13 and my grandpa has liver cancer. i am very close to him and for every night for the last 2 years i would pray for his forgiveness and his well being. I recently found out he had cancer, and while he was in the hospital he had his 4th heart attack in his lifetime. I dont think he deserves to go. How could god do this to me and him? What should i do? Will god heal him?

    • ANSWER:
      Research pH level. You can safely and effectively cure cancer (not treat it, but *cure* it) by raising your body's pH level to a slightly alkaline state. Check out the book "The Calcium Factor" by Robert Barefoot.

      Coral calcium supplements work well for raising pH to an alkaline level. You may also want to look into a cesium chloride supplement (this is typically sold as a salt-water type drink, and is highly effective at raising pH).

      The doctors won't tell you about this because they are in the business of selling treatments, not curing patients. That's an answer for a different question though...

      Please look into this for yourself, the information is out there if you seek it.

      EDIT: Do not listen to Atheist Pirate!!! He knows not what he says. God sent me here to see your question and give you this information that will help your grandfather infinitely more than "modern medicine." That's how God works, but what you do with the information He has given you through me is up to you. Good luck to you and your family!

  28. QUESTION:
    Dont feel strength, cant tolerate little physical exertion ?
    taking nolvadex 20MG DAILY SINCE JUNE 7 AFTER TREATMENT OF BREAST CANCER

    • ANSWER:
      The first question about cancer should be what are the common symptoms in all kinds of cancers.

      So far as my knowledge goes - All types of cancer are found in people with low stomach acids. In cancer patients the glucose in cells does not burn in the presence of oxygen to produce 38 units of energy. In cancer patients the glucose ferments to produce 2 units of energy.

      There are no other common symptom in all various types of cancers.

      It has been found that in most of the cancer patients there is accumulation of acids just under the skin of cancer patients. But lot of people have been found to be very less acidic or highly alkaline.

      All the disease have something to do with stomach. Now let us start with stomach and down till excretion.

      Whatever we eat goes in the stomach. There is Hcl acid in the stomach and lot of other enzymes are added to the food and chyme (paste) in stomach or while going down in the small intestines or elsewhere.

      The food remains in the stomach for 4.30 to 5.00 hours. The food starts moving into small intestine after 20 to 30 minutes after eating. The stomach vibrates at the rate of 3-4 vibrations per minutes in order to mix the acids and enzymes and make a fine paste of food so that the same can be pushed in the small intestines.

      During this process of mixing of acids, enzymes and food lot of acidic gases are produced. Since these gases are light in weight it creates a pressure and pushes the food in the small intestines.

      Now if one drinks water or other liquids with the meals and goes to bed shortly afterwards. So solids and liquids in the stomach the person will feel discomfort and will tend to sleep towards left side. That will cause the acidic gases and acidic liquids to escape from the stomach. That will reach to blood. High acids in the blood will cause the gap in the tissues to increase to allow the acids to be stored outside the blood system. During the course of sports these acids are reabsorbed in the blood system. But usually sportsman are found to be drinking huge amounts of water shortly after sports and hence become suspectible to cancer.

      I have done small experiments in respect of last statements. If a person drinks water with meals and goes to bed immediatelt thereafter and gets up after 1 or 2 hours he will feel very thirsty. But if a person drinks water early say at 7 pm and eats dinner at 8 pm and goes to bed after 10 without drinking water or other liquids he will not feel thirsty after 1 or 2 hours of going to bed.

      Now when one starts drinking water before meals the entire process which causes cancer starts getting reversed. Within 7 to 10 days he has water trapped in the body which needs to be released. But since the fluid levels in blood system are sufficient this can not come back. That excess of water and acids outside the blood system is the reason for none burning of the glucose in the presence of oxygen.

      So after about 10 days the cancer patient should be given water fast for 24 hours. This water fast should be repeated every 7 days till the reports of the cancer patient becomes all right.

      During water fast the cancer patient should not be given any water or any other liquids. But the person should take normall meals. Sudden exposer to dehydrating environment should also be avoided. The should reason in bed or indoors so that dehydration does not take place at a fast pace. Slow dehydration is the key to cure cancer.

      One should expect recovery from cancer in 2 to 3 months. Though there could be complete recovery from cancer but the above system should be followed and person monitored for at least 1 year.

  29. QUESTION:
    How many believe that cancer is link to too much acid and toxicity in the body?
    Pls be polite with your answers. Cancer survivors pls be brave and share your success stories. Oncologists pls be fair to those who have faith and success over their cancer without using expensive and high risks conventional treatments. Thank you all for your answers. Cancer is not for money making from patients who are desperate to live. I believe if researches are able to induce tumours in their lab rats, I am sure by now there is a reversible method besides radiation and chemo. The two most feared treatment for cancer patients.
    @mark lucas- thk u . I agree.
    @magnus-thk u for your opinion
    @xhemoang-Thk u, I too neglected myself and eat all the wrong food.
    @rusty-thk u. I agree with about the pill and how much is being profited from unquestioning patients.
    @madoline-thk u for your link
    @lo-thk you for your input. Do you still eat the same type of diet as you did before you got sick? Did you improve or change in any way or did you eat just like any other junk food and high sugared drinks? Surely you must have change in some ways if not better and living more appreciatively? I'm sure all cancer patients would be affected in the mind soul and spirit? Acid levels does get affected a much as we feel. The body chemistry react = fear makes the body tensed any kid would know that. It does'nt need a PHD to know our body is not in parts that is separated and can be cut out any time when it's not working and all will be well. I'm sure you believe in wholelistic wellness at least.

    • ANSWER:
      You clearly know very little about cancer.

      Nothing can change the acidity of anything in your body except your urine. The idea that high alkaline diets or alkaline water can prevent cancer, cure cancer or affect the progress of cancer in any way is simply not true.

      This excellent article gives the facts:

    Eating Fruit - this opened my eyes.

    Dr Stephen Mak is a friend of mine at the BSF course. He treats terminal ill cancer patients by "un-orthodox" way and many patients recovered. He explains to me before he is using solar energy to clear the illnesses of his patients. He believes on natural healing in the body against illnesses. See the article below.

    Thanks for the email on fruits and juices. It is one of the strategies to heal cancer. As of late, my success rate in curing cancer is about 80%. Cancer patients shouldn't die. The cure for cancer is already found. It is whether you believe it or not. I am sorry for the hundreds of cancer patients who die under the conventional treatments.
    Thanks and God bless.

    EATING FRUIT...

    We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat.

    What is the correct way of eating fruits?

    IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS! * FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.
    If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

    FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD. Let's say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.

    In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil....

    So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining — every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc — actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!

    Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

    There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

    When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans. Don't even drink juice that has been heated up. Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

    But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

    KIWI: Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

    APPLE: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

    STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

    ORANGE : Sweetest medicine. Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

    WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of lycopene — the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

    GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content.. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

    Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can u believe this?? For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down

    • ANSWER:
      This sounds very suspicious. I do not disagree for a moment that fruit is very good stuff. However, much of the reasoning in this sounds a lot like pseudoscience and quackery.
      Examples:

      "Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can u believe this??"
      No. Frankly I am cannot. The causes of cancer are very complex and to make such simplistic statements is nonsensical.

      "Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach."
      These are extremely large and general claims. Since they seem too good to be true, they probably are.

      "If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight. "
      As for the last point. Note also that claims like 'happiness' and 'health' are very vague and would be difficult to prove anyway.

      "If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it."
      Why should it need to mix with the saliva? Why would that help? Saliva breaks down starch into sugar. It also begins the process of breaking down fats. Most fruits have insignificant starch and fat content. So, what would saliva do to be so beneficial.

      I must say that I tend to eat fruit before eating anything else anyway. Not because of all this nonsense. Just because, while I am getting the water boiling for macaroni, toasting bread etc, I eat it as a snack. Will doing so magically ward off cancer? I doubt it.

  31. QUESTION:
    water purifier?
    have anyone heard of espring water filter. I read it in consumer magazine.. that they are the number one in the market and lasts one year.. But I think its from a business. My friend is trying to sell me one and i wanna know before i buy it..

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know about espring water filter but i have a better water filter system. I am using Alkaline Water Filter. I would recommend you to buy a Alkaline Water Enhancer System.

      Do you know why we need to have Alkaline Water Filter? Alkaline water in very good to our body and make our body more healthy.

      WHAT IS ALKALINE WATER?

      One of the longest-lived race of people in the world are called the Hunza. These people, located in the northern Pakistan, are found in several high-altitude mountain valleys. Many Hunza claim to be 150 years old; many others are documented centenarians (over age one hundred). For many years, scientists have pondered the mystery of what makes them so healthy, for they rarely suffer the diseases the rest of us know so well. Some researchers are beginning to believe that the Hunza miracle derives from the water that they drink. The mountain water that flows into the Hunza villages comes from the surrounding glaciers. Structured hexagonally, this water is filled with mineral solutes, and it tests out as highly alkaline

      As we have said before, the body uses the blood stream system to dispose of wastes; these are removed in liquid form, and are often deposited in the lungs and kidneys. If there are too many wastes to handle, they are deposited in various organ systems, like the heart, or the pancreas, or the liver, or the colon, or in other locations. Sometimes theses wastes are left on the walls of arteries, and over the years can spread throughout the body.

      The break-down of this disposal process, especially of acid wastes, is how we define the aging process. To slow down and reverse this direction, one must begin removing acid wastes from the body.

      The best way we have found to do this is to drink alkaline water. This water, having a pH of between of 9 and 11, will first neutralize harmful stored acid wastes, and if you consume it every day, will gently remove them from your body. Yet, since the water is ionized, it will not leach out valuable alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, or sodium.

      Japanese doctors have treated their patients for over four decades with alkaline water. They believe that the immune system looses its power to throw off disease when the body becomes too acidic. They advocate drinking alkaline water, eating alkaline foods.

      Asian medicine assigns two categories to human diseases: communicable and adult. Contagious or communicable diseases are caused by viruses and bacteria. Influenza, the common cold, aids, plagues, all fall into this category, and medical doctors are quite proficient at treating them. Adult diseases include heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, arthritis, kidney diseases, hemorrhoids, asthma, hay fever, allergies, obesity, tooth and gum disease, skin disorders, and many others.

      They are caused by poor circulation, by deficient cellular activity, and by the accumulation of acid wastes in the body. Asian medicine says that many adult diseases can be treated by alkalizing the bloodstream.

      Medicine of America does not attempt to remove acid wastes from the physiological system; so today's modern medicine is rather deficient in treating adult diseases. Even if the medicine cures the disease, if acids are not removed from the body, the treatment's effectiveness will at best only be temporary.

      WHAT CAUSES ACID WASTES?

      Bad diets - including meat and potatoes, fried foods, soft drink colas, sucrose and other sugars - build up acid salts in the body. Often these deposits, by having to be stored away from blood flow, can remain in the body for decades.

      Stress - both mental and physical - can also form acid deposits in the body. Mental stress can make you feel depressed. While the physiological, scientific connection to stress in the body has not been completely established, there exists a school of thought in psychology, called psychosomatics, which maintains that one's mental state will influence health. Doctors in Japan, following more than forty years of research and testing, believe that daily drinking of alkaline water can lift depression. Let us look at some of the healing benefits of drinking ionized alkaline water.

      OBESITY

      Overweight is a major health problem in America. It arises form the overeating of carbohydrates and fats. When the metabolic process is not able to burn them away, the blood must place these fatty acids somewhere. It first stores them under the skin, around the waist in men, and around the hips, thighs and breasts in women. Then it deposits wastes around organs and tissues, which then receive a smaller supply of nutrients and are thereby damaged. This second stage is more deadly. An easy gentle way to lose weight is to wash fatty acids out of the body by drinking six to eight glasses of alkaline water a day. This practice has been employed in Japan for the last thirty years, and doctors there record numerous instances of weight loss.

      CANCER

      Dr. Keiichi Morishita in his book, The Hidden Truth of Cancer, states that if the blood develops a more acidic condition, then these excess acidic wastes have to be deposited somewhere in the body. If this unhealthy process continues year after year, these areas steadily increase in acidity, and their cells begin to die. Other cells in the affected area may survive by becoming abnormal; these are called malignant. Malignant cells do not respond to brain commands. They undergo a cellular division that is out of control. This is called cancer. modern medicine in America treats these malignant cells as if they were bacteria or viruses. It uses chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery to treat cancer. Yet none of these treatments will help very much, if after all of that, the acidic environment remains. Drinking water that has high alkaline pH, because of its de-acidifying effect, will help in preventing cancer. In Asia, alkaline water is regularly served to patients, and is considered a regular part of treatment.

      BLOOD PRESSURE & HEART DISEASE

      Acidification of the body begins in the blood. Remember that the blood must keep its pH within that safe range of 7.3 to 7.45, and will do so by transforming liquid wastes into solid ones and storing them. This physiological state of homeostasis is maintained by chemicals called buffers. When buffer levels are too low, possibly from the ingestion of too many acid foods or drinks, then a condition called acidosis develops. Japanese doctors feel that people with high blood pressure have an acidosis condition. They cite many successful clinical cases where the ingestion of high pH alkaline water has lowered blood pressure. These doctors cite several causes for their success in lowering blood pressure through administering alkaline water. When the pH of blood is raised or alkalinized, and if you raise it from 7.3 to 7.45 you increase its pH by 68%, then excess oxygen is added to the blood, and the heart does not have to work as hard. Also, the ionized calcium added to the blood from the alkaline water may be dissolving the plaque and cholesterol build-up on the walls of the arteries. While the effect of alkaline water is gentle, and its greatest health benefits do not happen in a day or a month, you should be able to lower your blood pressure within a few months of drinking alkaline water. Japanese doctors have been using alkaline water to successfully treat high blood pressure for years..

      DIABETES

      The adult disease of diabetes is called insulin independent diabetes mellitus. It usually affects people over the age of 40. People who have this ailment usually eat too much and are overweight. Age is a factor here, because the efficiency of the pancreas decreases as we grow older. A shortage of calcium ions in the body impairs the production and release of the insulin hormone. That can lead to an acidic blood condition. Clogged blood vessels caused by excess protein buildup also impair pancreatic function. Alkaline water, by supplying calcium in an ionized form, and by preventing excess protein buildup, can help this condition. The Japanese have been successfully clinically treating diabetes with alkaline water.

      ARTHRITIS

      Many different forms of arthritis and gout are the result of the accumulation of acid wastes in the joints. Ointments simply cover-up symptoms. Aspirin, being acidic, can offer short-term relief, but over a longer period, it can add to the pain. Alkaline water is employed by Asian doctors to alter the acidic condition in the body so that the body can fix the problem by itself.

      KIDNEY DISEASE

      As the body consumes toxins, the kidneys become over-burdened with acid wastes. Nephritis, uremia poisoning, and bladder diseases are all acid related conditions which can be treated by the consumption of alkaline water. Kidney stones begin as tiny specks; they gradually build into solid stones, composed of phosphates, urates, etc. They are another form of acidic salts. Drinking plenty of alkaline water will prevent kidney stones from forming, and even after their formation, it can dissolve them. Japanese doctors have used alkaline water for years to treat the kidneys.

      Uses of Alkaline Water:

      *Raises drinking water's pH to approximately 7.5
      *Binds heavy metals.
      *Removes chlorine.
      *Hinders growth of bacteria.
      *Adds ionic coral calcium and essential minerals to water.

      -Fact: If your body's pH is not balanced, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements.

      -Fact: There is more calcium in the body than any other mineral. 20% of an adults bone calcium is reabsorbed and replaced every year.

      *Maintain optimum alkalinity for optimum health
      *Provide you easily absorbed and usable calcium
      *Cleanse the kidneys, intestines and liver
      *Maintain stronger bones and healthier teeth
      *Alleviate insomnia
      *Keep your heart beating regularly
      *Help metabolize your body's iron
      *Aid your nervous system
      *Breakdown heavy metals and drug residues in your body
      *Neutralize harmful acids that lead to illness
      *Achieve a healthy alkaline level, neutralizing acid
      *Protect your body from free radical damage
      *Control digestive problems
      *Increase muscle and joint mobility
      *Combat arthritic conditions and heart disease
      *Regulate blood sugar levels and blood pressure

      ALKALINE WATER EXPERIENCES

      A woman in her forties under high stress was diagnosed with high blood pressure and was told she had abnormally high cholesterol levels. She began consuming one and a half quarts a day of alkaline water. After a few weeks, both her cholesterol and blood pressure were lowered; and as an added benefit, her stomach began to feel much better.

      A teenager with a severe acne began drinking the water, and after three months, the condition was cleared up. He consumed two quarts a day of alkaline water.

      A man worried about the effect of the prescription drugs that he was taking for overweight began consuming two quarts of the water per day. after six months, he had thrown away his drugs, and had lost over thirty pounds.

      In California, a man had been suffering from hyper-acidity for many years, and after eating a meal would unpredictably vomit. He began consuming six glasses of the alkaline water per day. Within a week his acidity ended; he also lost fifteen pounds in three months, and discovered a dramatic rate of increase in his ability to heal small ailments, like cuts and bruises.

      A woman had suffered constipation for thirty years, and began drinking water on a regular basis, and completely rid herself of this condition. She had also lacked an appetite for years, but has now developed a healthy one.

      One man who likes to consume alcohol moderately, noticed when he began consuming the water on a regular basis, that he quit suffering hangovers, and that the drowsiness he regularly experienced had left him.

      A female athlete in her twenties began consuming the alkaline water for a stomach condition; she felt an increase in her general energy level, and after a day of strenuous training, found that the alkaline water minimized the aches and pains she had always previously experienced.

      For years, a woman had suffered ulcers, and was feeling nauseous from her medication; a regular consumption of the water allowed her to cease her medication and the ulcer began to go away.

      One could go on and on with these stories, and there are many more, but what we suggest you do is simply try the water yourself.

      The Alkaline Water Filter also have all the requirements that need by verityy.

      - not require to drill any hole
      - good looking
      - cost effective
      - not reverse osmosis
      - keep nutrients in water
      - extra energy
      - with healing effects
      - easy to install
      - cost effective for filter replacements
      - able to use for long term

      I have some alternative medication (nutritional supplement, therapies & Alkaline Water Enhancer System) may help to prevention and maintaining good health. It's safe and natural. you can email or call me to know more.

      There were people with serious problem (Hepatitis, Diabetics, high blood pressure and ..... ) get cure after taking the nutritional supplement & therapies that i have. I hope i can help you and bring good health to everyone.

  32. QUESTION:
    questions about the liver...please help..?
    I am a 26 year old male...I took a blood test in march of 2007 and it showed a high level of liver ALT (92 u/l) where the normal is between 3-60 u/l. I know that during that time I took multiviatmins. I've had all my hepatitis shots taken. I am a little bit overweight though and I do eat like crap. Could the high ALT be attributed to the multivitamins or is it really from a fatty liver? Can this be lowered? I don't want cirrhosis of the liver which then would just put me at risk for liver cancer...any thoughts? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The tests the doctor does for liver patients are (1) the
      liver enzymes, which includes the ALT, AST, and
      Alkaline Phosphatase. (2) the liver function tests which
      are the Bilirubin, Albumin, and INR. Just looking at the
      elevation of just one of these tests isn't enough to tell a
      person much.
      You can read about each of these tests here:
      http://www.labtestsonline.org

      There are different things which cause cirrhosis of the
      liver: Alcohol consumption, medications that are toxic
      to the liver, chemical exposure, hereditary conditions,
      developing a fatty liver, mushroom poisoning, having
      a biliary problem (Bile ducts are tube like structures that
      lead from inside to the liver to the gallbladder and
      intestines) such as them becoming blocked by a stone,
      become twisted or strictured or malformed, Viral or
      bacterial hepatitis. And there are more.
      Your doctor should know all medications you are taking:
      over the counter meds of any kind which would include
      vitamins, minerals, pain meds, etc...herbal med, herbal
      teas, and also any drugs prescribed by other doctors.
      Medication goes to the liver first to be broken down
      before going to the rest of the body. Some people
      can overdose on multivitamins also. There are two
      types of vitamins, the kind that are fat soluble and the
      kind that are water (fluid) soluble. The water soluble
      ones can be flushed out of our body...the fat soluble ones
      can stay in our body too long and build up and become
      toxic. Here is a link about this from a very reliable source:
      http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/foodnut/09315.html

      Usually, liver disease starts out as inflammation of the
      liver cells...what ever is causing this inflammation , it can
      be treated and this inflammation will go away and the
      cells of the liver will be healed. Stopping doing or taking
      anything that may injure the cells, like drinking alcohol...
      being exposed to chemicals...or if it is the kind of
      fatty liver that is caused by weight, losing weight will help.
      There are two types of fatty liver: NASH and NAFLD.
      Here is a multiple page article on that:
      http://www.medicinenet.com/fatty_liver/article.htm

      The liver enzymes can show the doctor is there is
      inflammation or damage to the liver cells. The liver
      function tests show how the liver is still functioning
      and if it is able to do the functions it needs to do
      in order to keep the body healthy.
      Some people just naturally have high liver enzymes.

      No one here can tell you for sure what is the cause of
      this slightly high elevations of your one liver enzyme.
      The doctor will be able to let you know this. When
      the blood tests show elevations, the doctor usually
      does more blood work just to be sure the first results
      are accurate and then he will go from there.

      I hope this has been of some help to you.

  33. QUESTION:
    brain swelling/cancer question, please please help?
    I am so very sorry for triple posting this. I did not notice the alternative medicine section. Please forgive me.
    My mother has cancer. Started as ovarian, then spread to her brain. now in her liver and lympth nodes too.
    Lately I have been looking into natural therapies.
    Things i have considered include:
    essiac tea
    MMS - miracle mineral solution - sodium chlorite and distilled water w citric acid
    apricot kernals
    chlorella
    liposomal-encapsulated vitamin c
    vitamin b 17
    iodine
    and hemp oil.
    some of these seem very promises.
    I also will get her on a much more alkaline diet.
    The problem is her brain swelling.
    I have read that essiac tea, while being a good cancer treatment, can cause brain swelling. Brain swelling is a big problem for her (she can hardly walk or even stand up sometimes because of it and the steroids they give her don't seem to be working right.
    QUESTION - which of these things could possibly cause extra brain swelling which needs to be avoided, and are there specific things that can help reduce swelling? Since diet (alkaline) will be part of this, information on foods impact on this would be great. SORRY FOR THE LENGTH OF THIS. I'm just not good at being brief sometimes.
    sorry , Round 2, not everyone has a "lay down and die" attitude. You are the one who needs counseling.
    If anything crashes upon me then I will deal with it then. Why would I not want to feel the full grief of a devastating loss? What is wrong with that? Until then, we will fight tooth and nail. I don't like negative people.
    You sound like the type of a person who would take anti-depressants to deal with the death of a family member. I have an intense dislike for such people.
    Sorry for my rudeness, but that doesn't change the fact that you are being pretty condescending and i don't appreciate that. No con artists are trying to take advantage of us, unless you count the insurance and drug companies. I know for a FACT that more than one of these treatments have CURED people who didn't have much other chance. I want to find out about possible interactions and side effects. We're not going to try something that very well could work, that is not being sold to us by anyone, just because of a majority pessimism. If you don't have helpful information please keep your comments to yourself.
    I don't know if that is bs or not founddog, but we might as well talk. Thanks for your response. Yahoo will not allow me to email you. It said I had to setup my yahoo answers email, which i just did, but it still says i didn't. Email me I guess.

    • ANSWER:
      In searching for alternative treatments, you will cost yourself dearly. Not only will you lose money and find yourself laden with false hope, you will lose time with your mother and fail to accept the reality of the situation until it crashes on you. Seek counseling please to help you cope with this.

      Edit:
      Denial and anger are very common emotions in dealing with grief. In desperation, people will seek any possible option that provides a glimmer of hope and there are many who prey on that vulnerability. End stage cancer patients will frequently find themselves and their families victimized by charlatans who exploit their desperation. I would never advise you to give up hope, but you must face reality. Enjoy the time you have left with your mother. Trust me, you will regret pursuing quackery.

      Edit:
      I'm not trying to come off as condescending, but the reality is that your mother's chance of survival is as close to zero as it can be. Nothing you have mentioned has ever been shown to cure anybody of any type of cancer, and whomever told you otherwise was a con artist. Stop chasing miracle cures and spend what little your mother has left by her side.

  34. QUESTION:
    does soda drinking affect the memory?
    Help! its for science project

    • ANSWER:
      Well, what I am about to say isn't based on some facts so it should be better that you do some research for this project. As we all know, google is your friend.
      - Soda drinking doesn't affect the memory, why would it?
      Soda has nothing to do with memory loss….it does have a bad effect on bones, the carbonic acid takes calcium from the bones. A major reason why growing children should be limited in their consumption
      Let's talk about it.

      "Seven on a pH scale is neutral. Any level below 7 is acidic, and any level above 7 is alkaline. Keep in mind that a drop in every point on the pH scale is 10 times more acid (i.e. from 7 to 6 is ten times, from 7 to 5 is 100 times etc.) From 7 - 2 is 100,000 times more acidic! Soda is in the acidic range of 2 pH.
      Did you know that when our body pH is acidic, it promotes illness and poor health? Acidic pH level in human body fluids are prime environment for bacteria, virus, other undesirable menace and even cancer cells to grow.
      While almost everything we do ,including our life style and our diets contributes to our body acidity, the long tern effects of soda are devastating to our body. In fact it take 32 glasses of alkaline water at a pH of 9 to neutralize acid from one 12 oz. cola or soda. When you drink sodas, the body will use its own stored alkaline buffers which are mainly calcium from the bones and DNA to raise the body's alkalinity levels, especially to maintain proper blood alkaline pH levels. Acidic blood levels can cause death!Scientists and doctors have found tht over 150 degenerative diseases are linked to acidity, including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, gall and kidney stones,osteoporosis, hypertension, memory loss and many more. All diseases thrive in an acidic, oxygen poor environment. Acidity, sugars and artificial sweetners can shorten life. Acidosis, lack of nutrients (minerals and vitamins), poor diets and improper digestion contributes to most degenerative diseases. Doctors have found degenerative diseases like osteoporosis, diabetes, arthritis...etc., in younger age group than before. "

      I hope you've been patient enough for reading this article that i found on the internet.
      I prefer natural juices to sodas because they are healthier.
      I hope I helped you with this little information and that I answered your question as you had desired.

  35. QUESTION:
    Whats wrong with my liver?
    I am 23 years old and my liver enzymes are off the charts. I started working out the week of my blood work with a couple of protein shakes. I was sore the night before and had a few alieves and a couple tylonols. I drink, but only as much as any other 23 year old. I had an ultra sound and I don't have gullstones.

    What the hell is wrong with me? I'm trying to get into the Peace Corps and I can't turn in my medical with this problem.

    • ANSWER:
      There are different blood tests that the doctor
      does to check the liver:
      1) the liver enzymes (known as the ALT,AST,GGT,
      and Alkaline Phosphatase) may become higher if the
      liver cells become damaged.
      However, the ALT is more specific to the liver because
      it is made "mostly" by the liver...the others are made
      in other organs as well. No one blood testing is 100%
      accurate. It takes more than one to confirm a potential
      problem and more types of other testing (like ultrasound,
      CT scan, MRI, liver biopsy) to be sure before a diagnosis
      is made. Another things is that these enzymes can also
      become elevated if you exercised right before the test
      was done, if you have muscle injury, if you have an
      intramuscular injection and other things.

      2) The doctor also checks the liver function tests
      which will show how well the liver cells are able to
      do the necessary functions [over 500 of them]
      to keep the body well.
      (these are known as the Bilirubin, INR, Albumin, Pt, PTT)

      3) The next is viral liver testing to see if a virus
      has entered the body and is using the liver cells to
      replicate itself
      (these virus are known as the Hepatitis A,B,C,etc)

      4) the doctor may do a cancer blood test known as
      the feto protein..just to see if cancer may be detected.

      To look up any of the tests, I mentioned above:
      http://www.labtestsonline.org or type in
      "liver enzymes" or "liver function tests" in your search
      engine.

      ..........................................
      The causes of liver cell damage are as follows...
      1) Alcohol consumption. Taking certain medications
      like alcohol with acetaminophen can cause instant liver
      cell damage. Over consumption of alcohol to the point of
      getting drunk or if a patient is sensitive to it can also
      cause cell damage. The liver takes alcohol, and using
      the liver cell enzymes, converts it first to
      acetaldehyde, then to acetate, then to carbon dioxide
      and water. If it cannot process this pass the acetaldehyde
      stage...both the alcohol and the acetaldehyde become
      toxic to the liver cells and are easily damaged.
      2) Medications toxification...some medication are harder
      on the liver than other ones are. I mentioned about
      tylenol and alcohol above...there are others also that
      could cause much damage. Liver patients are told
      not to take any medications that are not approved of
      or prescribed by their doctors. (this includes over
      the counter, herbs, vitamins, minerals, supplements,
      etc)
      3) Chemical exposure 4) viral infections 5) parasite
      infections 6) hereditary conditions 7) metabolic
      disorders 8) cardiac or vascular problems
      9) auto immune disease 10) biliary obstruction/
      malformation/infections 11) fatty liver disease
      12) mushroom poisoning,
      13) growths, cysts, tumors, cancer
      and there are others.

      The best doctor to be with is a gastroenterologist or
      hepatologist.
      When the liver cells become damaged,
      the immune system of the body responds to this and
      causes inflammation to develop inside the liver which
      will cause the liver to enlarge in size. (this could be
      seen on an ultrasound). If the cause can be found
      and stopped and the inflammation is treated, there
      is a chance the liver cells will heal and the problem
      can be reversed. If not...it can proceed to where the
      liver cells die off and a progressive disease known
      as Cirrhosis of the liver.

      I hope this information has been of some help to you.
      Best wishes.

  36. QUESTION:
    do any corals have medical usage?

    • ANSWER:
      The Australian Institute of Marine Science has patented a sunscreen product based on the natural sun protection chemicals found in corals. The product, which is still being tested, absorbs ultraviolet light efficiently without irritating skin or causing an allergic reaction. Scientists are able to create the substance synthetically so that they do not have to damage existing reefs to extract it. Another coral reef species that is being investigated for skin care properties is the soft coral sea whip. Compounds called pseudopterosins may be able to reduce swelling and relieve irritated skin.

      Scientists at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have developed a method of using a coral product called hydroxyapatite (HA) as a bone-building substance for people with broken bones. The material can be injected into the area of the break. HA has similar properties to human bone and fuses to the existing bone, forming a strong bond over time. HA was approved by the FDA in 1992.

      Even some poisonous creatures whose toxins are highly dangerous in their natural environment might be adapted for medical purposes. A snail that lives near coral reefs contains a chemical poison that might be useful as a painkiller. Studies have shown that the poison might be even stronger than morphine in relieving pain. Medicines derived from the chemical structure of the poison may have great potential for patients suffering from severe pain.

      A compound isolated from coral collected off the coast of Okinawa has shown the ability to slow down and possibly prevent virus replication and it may hold promise as a cancer treatment. Isis hippuris is a yellow, branching coral found in the tropical waters of the western Pacific. By grinding it up and treating it with methanol, researchers isolated a natural steroid, dubbed hippuristanol. Biochemist Jerry Pelletier of McGill University and his colleagues tested this steroid's therapeutic abilities. In vitro and in vivo, the steroid blocked a critical step in the process that allows a virus to thrive.

      Coral calcium is a supplement which is designed from 100 percent of marine bed coral calcium and acts as a natural source of calcium along with other 73 essential nutrients and minerals which are necessary for good health. The main function of calcium is building of teeth and bones, blood clotting and maintenance of cell membranes and muscle contraction. There are two types of coral calcium - one is fossilized coral found on land and marine coral found under the sea. It is helpful in balancing the body pH and also helps in preventing various diseases. According to research, it also brings the levels of body's pH into an alkaline state.

  37. QUESTION:
    what cause breast cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      According to research by Dr. Otto Warburg, becoming acidic can make you a perfect host for cancer of all kinds, while being alkaline will tend to suppress the cancer or prevent you from hosting cancer.

      Dr. Warburg won a Nobel Prize for this discovery, I am not feeding you some BS.

      His research discovered that all cancer patients are acidic, while the normal healthy population is not normally acidic, but average people can be acidic or non-acidic. 100% of the people with cancer that he tested are acidic. And the cancer lowers the PH in the area around the cancer site, making that area even more acidic.

      So drinking highly acidic things like 4.0 PH soft drinks, or 5.0 PH beer, or coffee and eating acidic foods (including hot sauce) can make you a better host for cancer, while drinking 9.5 PH water will tend to suppress your cancer symptoms and make you less susceptible to cancer.

      Best of luck to you.

    Maybe because you worked for Monsanto you have a different perspective but I believe the leaders are evil because they are the most aware of the effects of their products. Just because there is a opening in the market doesn't mean it isn't evil. We can look at organized crime the same way because they took a opportunity which is also morally incorrect just like Monsanto did.
    Don't you think Monsanto also have obligation to manifest goals of depopulation for whatever group is advocating the agenda? Im very opened to conspiracies and I do not look at the government as a machine, I believe the motives behind many evil acts done by our government is orchestrated by a descreet group. Our current political system seems way too corrupt.
    I guess I jumped the gun on GM polutry and fish, I would have thought that Monsanto would have wanted to control every single GM food.

    I don't really have any questions at the moment on GM food but I am curious about your former duties in Mo
    I don't really have any questions at the moment on GM food but I am curious about your former duties in Monsanto.
    Also what do you think about alkaline water?

    • ANSWER:
      As long as there is a a market damand for organic wild type food, then you have nothing to worry about. The problem is that many people view the organic trend as a snobbish type of eating. One of the secrets in the world is that if you don't pay extra for pure food, then your considered an undesirable. That is why we have 99 cent menus that have ingredients that resemble a chem lab. You would think by looking at the ingredients on cheaper food that they should actually be more money with all the chemicals, but that is the catch. The chemicals do cost money, and they are there to shorten the life expectancy of the poorer people. Monsanto has an obligation to make money for the holders of Monsanto stock. Dominating the GM food market is one way of achieving it. And getting the public to think that organic food is unnecessary is a way to get GM foods into everything. Monsanto is not an evil corporation, it is only trying to make as much money as possible. We should be mad at the government and politicians that allowed them to patient genes. They are only doing what every company that has stock holders to please does, make money.
      I'm not sure what your talking about with fish and animals, because I know that Monsanto has no interest in animals. They did have investment in cows give them rBGH to produce more milk, but they dropped it because of the loss of money with the current trend saying on milk containers that the cows where not treated with rBGH. Monsanto worked hard to not have that info disclosed on milk containers, but lost and so they dropped that project.
      The government is to blame not Monsanto, and the government has 2 sides it is playing. The one good thing that the American government has made all the ingredients and GM foods known to the general public, which goes back to the population control I talked about earlier. They only want desirables to have the longest life expectancy, and desirables are considered people that are smart enough and wealthy enough to educate themselves on food and have the money to purchase those foods. If it becomes normal for people to eat organic and whole foods and shop at local and farmers markets then the price and availability of good food will go down.
      Everyone that has a concern should shop at Whole Foods market, make that company as large as possible, then their prices will be competitive with regular supermarket chem foods.

      A: duties I had were to work with testing and separating genetics species after breeding. I would take samples of leaf in the greenhouse of seedlings. After the leaf tissue was freeze dried the next day I would bead beat the tissue into powder and perform a six hour process of DNA extraction. I would then take the extracted DNA the next day and fix it with primer and probes while transferring it from 96 sample tray wells to 384 sample trays the put them into a PCR reactor amplifying the DNA, then place it into another machine that would compare it to their own data base. Next would score the data and send it to the main campus in St Louis.

      A: I guess alkaline water is good if your body is acidic. You can make yourself too alkaline and do harm that way as well. I would suggest that you test your pH urine and saliva over the course of the day and averaged out gives you your cellular pH, it should be floating around 7.0

  39. QUESTION:
    What do I do now ? Looking for Honest Answer?
    Hi,

    I know email/history will not enough to diagnose but need your help in this..
    This regards to my below symptom.. hope to get guidance from your side,

    Issue : Upper right side of stomach (heaviness) continue from Jan 2004 till today

    1) 4 Year alcoholic/smoking history .. from 1999 to 2003 (during this period not had proper food), end of 2003 felt very hot whenever drink alcohol..
    2) First time in Jan 2004 feel some pain in upper right side of stomach like some injury & subsequently have seen small rash upper right side of stomach..
    3) Consulted with MBBS/MD doctor & explained him issue, his observation was its due to acidity so he treated with olzol 20mg tab..
    (Felt better but again could see rashes.. doctor says it might take time to go.. not specified any time frame)
    I was not satisfied with his answer so consult with another doctor he also gave same opinion so then I though to leave as it is..didn't perform any clinical test nor endoscopy..)
    4) From 2005 stopped alcohol/smoking completely
    5) From 2005 onward was very busy with Job couldn't had food on time or escape food, didn't slept on time average 4/5 hr sleep per day, after meal use to sleep immediately..
    6) Upper right side of stomach pain continue from Jan 2004 till July 2009 but it was not that serious I use to feel heaviness in upper right side of stomach..
    7) Stomach pain got worse in Aug 2009 & found swelling on right side of stomach..
    8) Consulted with Gastrointestinal doctor he performed endoscopy & result was..
    a) Found three rashes inside the stomach & non erosive pan gastritis
    b) Grade A/2 reflux esopangitis/esophagus
    Treatment provided:
    1) ESOZ tablet 40mg
    2) Pacticid HP Kit 7 days

    9) After this treatment 1) rashes have gone away, couldn't see them,2) swelling gone 3) but have heaviness into the right side of stomach, felling much when bent down & don't fell much when stand..
    10) Again consulted with same gastrointestinal doctor he just check the stomach by hand & diagnose by..
    a) Dyspepsia
    Treatment provided
    1) Ocid--d for month

    * My GI doctor says its not an Ulcer nor cancer & said continue with daily routine no need to worry about this says this heaviness will continue.. he said that I'm taking very seriously & this is normal because drink/smoking history

    My age 32Year
    Current weight 72Kgs
    Precaution from Sept 2009

    My daily routine :
    4am: 1 liter hot/mild water empty stomach, then min 2 hrs no food/water..
    6am: Aloe Vera fiber juice OR fresh aloe Vera leaf juice 25/30ML empty stomach, then 30/45 min no food/water..
    8am: Morning meal: 1 spoon honey with 1 banana + (vegetables/3 roties), then 3/4 hrs no food/water
    1.30pm: 1 banana & pomegranate, then 2/3 hrs no food/water
    4pm: 1 full glass milk with 1 spoon honey
    5.30pm: Aloe Vera fiber juice OR fresh aloe Vera leaf juice 25/30ML
    6.30pm: 1 banana + evening meal (leaving half stomach empty)
    Drinking 3 liter water during days time.. not sleeping after food for almost 1/2 hrs.. sleeping average minimum 5/7 hrs per day, included most of vegetables/fruits(alkaline) in meal

    Symptom: Feeling more heaviness in upper right side of stomach whenever get bowel/urine movement & after meal, after exercise.. sometime wont feel heaviness but it does exist

    1) Would like to know shall I change my GI doctor (He is one of the good GI doctor), Shall I trust him ( I shoudn't be asking this..)
    2) What is the issue with my stomach, what will happen if heaviness does exist/continue, Is it serious & how it is..
    3) Is there any cure for this
    4) What are precautio
    1)Blood test was fine..( pH is a measure of the acidity .. which is 7)
    2)ultrasonography scan was fine
    3) GI doctor mentioned that liver is fine..
    4) Whatever test i have gone thru all were ok..

    Issue look like gastric / Dysplasia (upset stomach or indigestion, meaning hard or difficult digestion)

    I'm taking all max precaution when it comes to lifestyle/food etc

    Dont know what to do with this,

    • ANSWER:
      Read this...
      "From 2005 onward was very busy with Job couldn't had food on time or escape food, didn't slept on time average 4/5 hr sleep per day..."
      That's enough to upset anybody's stomach.
      You are a very fussy eater, where is the 'normal' food in your diet? the protein for example?
      Aloe vera juice can cause occasional bloating and diarrhea.

      Your tests are negative, your GI doctor sounds a patient and thorough man.
      Could you eat more normally, drink when you are thirsty - not many people drink 3 litrea of water in an ordinary day.
      You sound anxious and stressed. Perhaps you should see a doctor to discuss that.

  40. QUESTION:
    Baking soda,under the tongue.?
    Would that alkalinity be absorbed into the bloodstream?

    • ANSWER:
      Baking soda in the mouth is quite good for a lot of things (ie. breath odor, killing pathogens there). However, it can't alter the ph of any region besides the immediate local area it's exposed to.
      All the oncologists who use baking soda to treat cancer (very high success rate suprisingly since alkalinity instantly kills cancer) don't even bother trying to get it into the patient orally, they just intravenously inject it.
      If you want to change your diet so that alkalinity absorbs into your system, the classic approach used is to shift your diet from foods with acidic residues (this is the ash left over after most of the digestion happens) to alakaine residue foods.
      Acidic foods include sugar, most meats and processed grains.
      Alkaline foods include fresh fruit and vegetables (and suprisingly citrus fruits, due to the fact the ash they leave is acidic).
      No doctor I know of has ever recommended eating baking soda to raise the bodies PH, but the alternative commonly suggested is to drink alkalanized water (especially for cancer patients). From my experience this appears to have an effect, but it once again is tiny compared to intravenous baking soda injections (which I will add should never not be done with a competent doctor).

      Anyhow hope that helps!
      Your idea is a good one and shows your on the right track; it just unfortunately doesn't mesh with human physiology.

  41. QUESTION:
    I suffer from chronic constipation, try all methods but still does not help much?
    I take a lot of veg, fruits and at times even after taking laxatives, I still don't have a motion

    • ANSWER:
      Drink more water everyday. It is better to drink Alkaline water instead of plain water. Drink alkaline water everyday is the best cure for you.

      Water and Constipation

      When the body doesn't get enough water, it takes what it needs from internal sources. The colon is a primary internal source. When this happens, constipation usually follows. Normal function commonly returns along with proper hydration

      WHAT IS ALKALINE WATER?

      One of the longest-lived race of people in the world are called the Hunza. These people, located in the northern Pakistan, are found in several high-altitude mountain valleys. Many Hunza claim to be 150 years old; many others are documented centenarians (over age one hundred). For many years, scientists have pondered the mystery of what makes them so healthy, for they rarely suffer the diseases the rest of us know so well. Some researchers are beginning to believe that the Hunza miracle derives from the water that they drink. The mountain water that flows into the Hunza villages comes from the surrounding glaciers. Structured hexagonally, this water is filled with mineral solutes, and it tests out as highly alkaline

      As we have said before, the body uses the blood stream system to dispose of wastes; these are removed in liquid form, and are often deposited in the lungs and kidneys. If there are too many wastes to handle, they are deposited in various organ systems, like the heart, or the pancreas, or the liver, or the colon, or in other locations. Sometimes theses wastes are left on the walls of arteries, and over the years can spread throughout the body.

      The break-down of this disposal process, especially of acid wastes, is how we define the aging process. To slow down and reverse this direction, one must begin removing acid wastes from the body.

      The best way we have found to do this is to drink alkaline water. This water, having a pH of between of 9 and 11, will first neutralize harmful stored acid wastes, and if you consume it every day, will gently remove them from your body. Yet, since the water is ionized, it will not leach out valuable alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, or sodium.

      Japanese doctors have treated their patients for over four decades with alkaline water. They believe that the immune system looses its power to throw off disease when the body becomes too acidic. They advocate drinking alkaline water, eating alkaline foods.

      Asian medicine assigns two categories to human diseases: communicable and adult. Contagious or communicable diseases are caused by viruses and bacteria. Influenza, the common cold, aids, plagues, all fall into this category, and medical doctors are quite proficient at treating them. Adult diseases include heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, arthritis, kidney diseases, hemorrhoids, asthma, hay fever, allergies, obesity, tooth and gum disease, skin disorders, and many others.

      They are caused by poor circulation, by deficient cellular activity, and by the accumulation of acid wastes in the body. Asian medicine says that many adult diseases can be treated by alkalizing the bloodstream.

      Medicine of America does not attempt to remove acid wastes from the physiological system; so today's modern medicine is rather deficient in treating adult diseases. Even if the medicine cures the disease, if acids are not removed from the body, the treatment's effectiveness will at best only be temporary.

      AMAZING SECRETS FOR HEALTH AND WELLNESS

      Cure # 1: Water prevents and cures heartburn.

      Heartburn is a signal of water shortage in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a major thirst signal of the human body. The use of antacids or tablet medications in the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and the body continues to suffer as a result of its water shortage.

      Tragedy: Not recognizing heartburn as a sign of dehydration and treating it with antacids and pill medications will, in time, produce inflammation of the stomach and duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulceration, and eventually cancers in the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and pancreas.

      Cure # 2: Water prevents and cures arthritis.

      Rheumatoid joint pain - arthritis - is a signal of water shortage in the painful joint. It can affect the young as well as the old. The use of pain-killers does not cure the problem, but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications. Intake of water and small amounts of salt will cure this problem.

      Cure # 3: Water prevents and cures back pain.

      Low back pain and ankylosing arthritis of the spine are signs of water shortage in the spinal column and discs - the water cushions that support the weight of the body. These conditions should be treated with increased water intake - not a commercial treatment, but a very effective one.

      Tragedy: Not recognizing arthritis and low back pain as signs of dehydration in the joint cavities and treating them with pain-killers, manipulation, acupuncture, and eventually surgery will, in time, produce osteoarthritis when the cartilage cells in the joints have eventually all died. It will produce deformity of the spine. It will produce crippling deformities of the limbs. Pain medications have their own life-threatening complications.

      Cure # 4: Water prevents and cures angina.

      Heart pain - angina - is a sign of water shortage in the heart/lung axis. It should be treated with increased water intake until the patient is free of pain and independent of medications. Medical supervision is prudent. However, increased water intake is angina's cure.

      Cure # 5: Water prevents and cures migraines.

      Migraine headache is a sign of water need by the brain and the eyes. It will totally clear up if dehydration is prevented from establishing in the body. The type of dehydration that causes migraine might eventually cause inflammation of the back of the eye and possibly loss of eye sight.

      Cure #6: Water prevents and cures colitis.

      Colitis pain is a signal of water shortage in the large gut. It is associated with constipation because the large intestine constricts to squeeze the last drop of water from the excrements - thus the lack of water lubrication.

      Tragedy: Not recognizing colitis pain as a sign of dehydration will cause persistent constipation. Later in life, it will cause fecal impacting: it can cause diverticulitis, hemorrhoids and polyps, and appreciably increases the possibility of developing cancer of the colon and rectum.

      Cure # 7: Water and salt prevent and cure asthma.

      Asthma, which also affects 14 million children and kills several thousand of them every year, is a complication of dehydration in the body. It is caused by the drought management programs of the body. In asthma free passage of air is obstructed so that water does not leave the body in the form of vapor - the winter steam. Increased water intake will prevent asthma attacks. Asthmatics need also to take more salt to break the mucus plugs in the lungs that obstruct the free flow of air in and out of the air sacs.

      Tragedy: Not recognizing asthma as the indicator of dehydration in the body of a growing child not only will sentence many thousands of children to die every year, but will permit irreversible genetic damage to establish in the remaining 14 million asthmatic children.

      Cure # 8: Water prevents and cures high blood pressure.

      Hypertension is a state of adaptation of the body to a generalized drought, when there is not enough water to fill all the blood vessels that diffuse water into vital cells. As part of the mechanism of reverse osmosis, when water from the blood serum is filtered and injected into important cells through minute holes in their membranes, extra pressure is needed for the "injection process." Just as we inject I.V. "water" in hospitals, so the body injects water into tens of trillions of cells all at the same time. Water and some salt (real sea salt) intake will bring blood pressure back to normal!

      Tragedy: Not recognizing certain types of hypertension as one of the major indicators of dehydration in the human body, and treating it with diuretics that further dehydrate the body will, in time, cause blockage by cholesterol of the heart arteries and the arteries that go to the brain. It will cause heart attacks and small or massive strokes that paralyze. It will eventually cause kidney disease. It will cause brain damage and neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.

      Cure # 9: Water prevents and cures early adult-onset diabetes.

      Adult-onset diabetes is another adaptive state to severe dehydration of the human body. To have adequate water in circulation and for the brain's priority water needs, the release of insulin is inhibited to prevent insulin from pushing water into all body cells. In diabetes, only some cells get survival rations of water. Water and some salt will reverse adult-onset diabetes in its early stages.

      Tragedy: Not recognizing adult-onset diabetes as a complication of dehydration will, in time, cause massive damage to the blood vessels all over the body. It will cause eventual loss of the toes, feet and legs from gangrene. It will cause eye damage, even blindness.

      Cure # 10: Water lowers blood cholesterol.

      High cholesterol levels are an indicator of early drought management by the body. Cholesterol is a clay-like material that is poured in the gaps of some cell membranes to safeguard them against losing their vital water content to the osmotically more powerful blood circulating in their vicinity. Cholesterol, apart from being used to manufacture nerve cell membranes and hormones, is also used as a "shield" against water taxation of other vital cells that would normally exchange water through their cell membranes.

      Cure # 11: Water cures depression, loss of libido, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy.

      These conditions are caused by prolonged chronic dehydration. They will clear up once the body becomes well and regularly hydrated. In these conditions, exercising one's muscles should be part of the treatment program.

      Uses of Alkaline Water:

      *Raises drinking water's pH to approximately 7.5
      *Binds heavy metals.
      *Removes chlorine.
      *Hinders growth of bacteria.
      *Adds ionic coral calcium and essential minerals to water.

      -Fact: If your body's pH is not balanced, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements.

      -Fact: There is more calcium in the body than any other mineral. 20% of an adults bone calcium is reabsorbed and replaced every year.

      *Maintain optimum alkalinity for optimum health
      *Provide you easily absorbed and usable calcium
      *Cleanse the kidneys, intestines and liver
      *Maintain stronger bones and healthier teeth
      *Alleviate insomnia
      *Keep your heart beating regularly
      *Help metabolize your body's iron
      *Aid your nervous system
      *Breakdown heavy metals and drug residues in your body
      *Neutralize harmful acids that lead to illness
      *Achieve a healthy alkaline level, neutralizing acid
      *Protect your body from free radical damage
      *Control digestive problems

      ALKALINE WATER EXPERIENCES

      A woman in her forties under high stress was diagnosed with high blood pressure and was told she had abnormally high cholesterol levels. She began consuming one and a half quarts a day of alkaline water. After a few weeks, both her cholesterol and blood pressure were lowered; and as an added benefit, her stomach began to feel much better.

      A teenager with a severe acne began drinking the water, and after three months, the condition was cleared up. He consumed two quarts a day of alkaline water.

      A man worried about the effect of the prescription drugs that he was taking for overweight began consuming two quarts of the water per day. after six months, he had thrown away his drugs, and had lost over thirty pounds.

      In California, a man had been suffering from hyper-acidity for many years, and after eating a meal would unpredictably vomit. He began consuming six glasses of the alkaline water per day. Within a week his acidity ended; he also lost fifteen pounds in three months, and discovered a dramatic rate of increase in his ability to heal small ailments, like cuts and bruises.

      A woman had suffered constipation for thirty years, and began drinking water on a regular basis, and completely rid herself of this condition. She had also lacked an appetite for years, but has now developed a healthy one.

      One man who likes to consume alcohol moderately, noticed when he began consuming the water on a regular basis, that he quit suffering hangovers, and that the drowsiness he regularly experienced had left him.

      A female athlete in her twenties began consuming the alkaline water for a stomach condition; she felt an increase in her general energy level, and after a day of strenuous training, found that the alkaline water minimized the aches and pains she had always previously experienced.

      For years, a woman had suffered ulcers, and was feeling nauseous from her medication; a regular consumption of the water allowed her to cease her medication and the ulcer began to go away.

      One could go on and on with these stories, and there are many more, but what we suggest you do is simply try the water yourself.

      WHAT IS ALKALINE WATER?

      One of the longest-lived race of people in the world are called the Hunza. These people, located in the northern Pakistan, are found in several high-altitude mountain valleys. Many Hunza claim to be 150 years old; many others are documented centenarians (over age one hundred). For many years, scientists have pondered the mystery of what makes them so healthy, for they rarely suffer the diseases the rest of us know so well. Some researchers are beginning to believe that the Hunza miracle derives from the water that they drink. The mountain water that flows into the Hunza villages comes from the surrounding glaciers. Structured hexagonally, this water is filled with mineral solutes, and it tests out as highly alkaline

      As we have said before, the body uses the blood stream system to dispose of wastes; these are removed in liquid form, and are often deposited in the lungs and kidneys. If there are too many wastes to handle, they are deposited in various organ systems, like the heart, or the pancreas, or the liver, or the colon, or in other locations. Sometimes theses wastes are left on the walls of arteries, and over the years can spread throughout the body.

      The break-down of this disposal process, especially of acid wastes, is how we define the aging process. To slow down and reverse this direction, one must begin removing acid wastes from the body.

      The best way we have found to do this is to drink alkaline water. This water, having a pH of between of 9 and 11, will first neutralize harmful stored acid wastes, and if you consume it every day, will gently remove them from your body. Yet, since the water is ionized, it will not leach out valuable alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, or sodium.

      Japanese doctors have treated their patients for over four decades with alkaline water. They believe that the immune system looses its power to throw off disease when the body becomes too acidic. They advocate drinking alkaline water, eating alkaline foods.

      Asian medicine assigns two categories to human diseases: communicable and adult. Contagious or communicable diseases are caused by viruses and bacteria. Influenza, the common cold, aids, plagues, all fall into this category, and medical doctors are quite proficient at treating them. Adult diseases include heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, arthritis, kidney diseases, hemorrhoids, asthma, hay fever, allergies, obesity, tooth and gum disease, skin disorders, and many others.

      They are caused by poor circulation, by deficient cellular activity, and by the accumulation of acid wastes in the body. Asian medicine says that many adult diseases can be treated by alkalizing the bloodstream.

      Medicine of America does not attempt to remove acid wastes from the physiological system; so today's modern medicine is rather deficient in treating adult diseases. Even if the medicine cures the disease, if acids are not removed from the body, the treatment's effectiveness will at best only be temporary.

      Uses of Alkaline Water:

      *Raises drinking water's pH to approximately 7.5
      *Binds heavy metals.
      *Removes chlorine.
      *Hinders growth of bacteria.
      *Adds ionic coral calcium and essential minerals to water.

      -Fact: If your body's pH is not balanced, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements.

      -Fact: There is more calcium in the body than any other mineral. 20% of an adults bone calcium is reabsorbed and replaced every year.

      *Maintain optimum alkalinity for optimum health
      *Provide you easily absorbed and usable calcium
      *Cleanse the kidneys, intestines and liver
      *Maintain stronger bones and healthier teeth
      *Alleviate insomnia
      *Keep your heart beating regularly
      *Help metabolize your body's iron
      *Aid your nervous system
      *Breakdown heavy metals and drug residues in your body
      *Neutralize harmful acids that lead to illness
      *Achieve a healthy alkaline level, neutralizing acid
      *Protect your body from free radical damage
      *Control digestive problems
      *Increase muscle and joint mobility
      *Combat arthritic conditions and heart disease
      *Regulate blood sugar levels and blood pressure

      I can share with you more about alkaline water that i drink daily if you want to have better water for better health.

  43. QUESTION:
    sharp pain in upper right abdomen under ribs after eating?
    sharp pain in upper right abdomen under ribs after eating, i had gotten this first yesterday. i had been hungover from drinking heavily recovering in my bedroom all day eating some vegetable soup, i didn't get any pains when i first ate the soup until i ate a cheddar smokie (sausage) a hour or so later i noticed a sharp pain under my rib after laughing and that it hurt more when i took a breath so i took shallow breaths and got up and walked around a bit the pain was very brief and only lasted a minute or two then went away. anyways today when i woke up i ate a bun and nothing else(no pain) and waited to make myself something else to eat until i was really hungry 4 baked perogies and 4 fish sticks i ate the baked perogies and two fish sticks after about a hour of eating i had gotten the same sharp pain in the same place when i had a sudden laugh but after i stopped laughing i tried to to see if i could fetch the pain again by moving or breathing but it was gone in about five seconds? so now im scared to eat and going to the doctors tomorrow any ideas and advice of what i should do would help.
    p.s. pls don't tell me to go to the doctors and not post anything else, thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,
      I am responding because I just overcame this same problem! I also had internal bleeding though. But man was it tough trying to figure out a cause for the sharp rib pains. Right under your right ribs is your liver. Did you know that pains under the ribs can be due to spleen enlargement, liver problems, gas, fractured or bruised ribs, simple acid reflux, or inflammation of the lungs, symptom of mono, and so much more? But what I found most interesting was that there is also a common sharp pain in people that occurs around the ribs that is unexplained, chest pains that doctors say are harmless, but have no clue what causes them. I went to the doctors, and they really didn't do a thing. I was getting angry, because i was bleeding out of my rectum and they never do anything. I'm not advising you to ditch the medical system, that is just what I did. I am sure my problem had to do with either digestion or liver problems (recovering alcoholic). I turned to naturopathy instead, after a tiresome search for what was wrong with me. My sharp pains got so bad, it was 50 times a day. What I did was start an internal organ cleanse, got some liver cleanse supplements. But what helped the most was drinking a completely alkaline drink every morning. It healed my digestive system, internal bleeding and the pains were gone within days. I feel great. Alkalinity jump starts your immune system to heal all disease. That's why marijuana oil, since it is alkaline heals cancer patients on their death bed. But certain foods are pure alkaline too. You need a juicer or blender for This recipe: fresh organic vegetables, ginger root, cayenne pepper, carrots, apples, any other fruits, filtered water, a whole food green powder with blue green algae, a bit of olive oil. Nothing acidic like proteins or dairy products, only alkaline foods. It has helped me. I hope you figure out what is wrong at the doctors. But if you don't and the pains get worse, try out a full body cleanse and this recipe (it actually tastes really good though it looks gross) it will heal ailments to the internal organs and body. Unfortunately on a cleanse you can't eat smokies LoL.

      Hope this helps a bit,
