pH balance is not only crucial for the people who suffer from cancer, but for every person in general. In order to stay healthy, every person has to keep an alkaline environment.
In order to maintain slightly alkaline pH of 7.35, the human body actually goes to great lengths, but stress and poor diet often change the environment to an acidic one in which illnesses can thrive.
Maintaining alkaline diet is not so easy because we really have bad eating habits. People are used to consume microwave meals, fast foods, processed foods, packages snacks, all of them unhealthy on the case of cancer.
In order to accelerate the process of healing, cancer patients have to consume alkaline foods.
Today we will present you the most important dietary changes:
Acidic environment and pH imbalance is creating by the consumption of unhealthy foods. On the contrary, you can fight inflammation and restore the balance by consuming alkaline foods.
This diet primarily includes root vegetables, broccoli, leafy green veggies, peas and lentils, beans, spices, herbs, seeds, nuts, chives and leek, onions, garlic, cabbage, cauliflower and small amounts of non gluten grains such as rice.
The diet also includes organic poultry a few times a week, clean fish, 2-4 ounces of grass-fed meat and as much fresh vegetables and fruits as you can.
Avoid glutinous grains because it leads to inflammation. Avoid the consumption of high-gluten grains such as baked goods, cookies, crackers, muffins, bread, cakes, pasta, cereals, wheat, rye and whole grains.
Consume non gluten grains such as millet, amaranth, buckwheat, quinoa and rice. Do not forget that you should also avoid “gluten free” prepared products, because they are full of processed oils and added sugar.
More glucose per unit is actually used by the cancer cells compared with others cells. That is the main reason why you should avoid the intake of sugar. It also drains the magnesium in the body and contributes to cancer. However, agave and honey should be avoided too. Instead, consume fresh pineapple, unsweetened applesauce, dried apricots and figs.
Due to the casein protein, dairy is one of the most cancer promoting foods. Due to the inflammation and high acidic production, these foods usually lead to bone deterioration and promote cancer proliferation.
