How does your pH affect cancer risk?

Did you know that your body has a pH? It’s true! Keeping your body in an alkaline state is one of the keys to preventing chronic diseases and promoting overall health. Some health experts even believe that it is harder for cancer to develop when the body is in an alkaline state.

The pH of our bodies if often fluctuating because of diet, physical activity, and other factors. The ideal pH level is 7.4, but with different factors it can range from anywhere between 7.0 to 7.5.

There are 3 main factors that can create an overly acidic environment in the body.

1. Eating acidic foods like meat, dairy, sugar, and refined grains
2. Extreme physical exertion
3. Stress

When your body leans towards the acidic side, it can create a chain reaction throughout the body. The body has a tougher time getting rid of toxins, which can in turn make bacteria, viruses and yeasts more likely to grow.

Also, exposure to environmental carcinogens in the cell membranes can create a lack of oxygen in the cells. When cells don’t get enough oxygen, they become acidic, which makes cancer cells more likely to develop and multiply.

Research from the University of Arizona showed promise for treating acidity and cancer risk with baking soda. Their research showed that oral intake of baking soda increased the pH of tumors and reduced the spread of breast cancer cells.

Dr. Veronique Desaulniers recommends taking baking soda in water to help regulate pH and decrease the risk of developing cancer:

The equivalent intake of the baking soda solution for a human being weighing 154 pounds would be about 2.5 tsps. of baking soda per day. Since the stomach is very acidic in nature, drink the baking soda solution on an empty stomach. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda in 8 ounces of clean water. Adding the juice of an organic lemon improves the flavor.
