The Healing Power of Alkalinity
Globally recognized is the Nobel Prize, it’s truly the most prestigious international award for excellence in academic, cultural, or scientific advances. In 1931 it was Otto Warburg who received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for discovering that 90% – 95% of all cancers are triggered in an acidic environment.
Warburg’s research proved that cancer cells cannot multiply or sustain itself in an alkaline atmosphere, specifically around pH 7.36 or higher. Over time it was uncovered that what humans eat had direct influence over the body’s pH then other scientists and medical practitioners persisted to build upon Warburg’s findings which led to the development of better treatments, hopefully a cure eventually.
“It was in the early 1960’s that the Japanese started research on the possible therapeutic benefits of alkaline ionized water,” informs Water for Health UK. “This research was a follow up to earlier work carried out in Russia. The research in Japan focused on using electronic devices to split water into alkaline and acidic streams. As the benefits of alkaline ionized water began to be appreciated, manufacture of water ionizers greatly increased. It was subsequently approved as a medical device in Japan and is now used there in clinics. It is widely used in North America and now increasingly so in Europe, as awareness has grown about the negative effects of excess acidity from our diets and lifestyles.”
Staying aware of exactly how food and drinks affect the body as it relates to pH levels is critical to making healthy dietary selections. There’s an overwhelming amount of acid forming foods and sadly it’s also often the tastier ones as well. Potato chips, candy bars, pizzas and almost any other fast food meal one can think of are all in fact acid forming foods when consumed which begins to chemically react with the digestive enzymes.
On the flip side eating right isn’t as difficult as many think, at least with a little discipline that is. Fruits, vegetables, nuts and water rich foods are some of the keys elements of an alkaline rich diet which will help with preventing or combating a number of ailments such as cancer.
“Modern medicine… treats these malignant cells as if they were bacteria and viruses, it uses chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to treat cancer,” says Keiichi Morishita, Director of the Ochanomizu Clinic in Japan and the Head of the International Natural Medicine Association. “Yet none of these treatments will help very much if the environment of the body continues to remain acidic. Drinking water that has a 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.”
Keeping the body alkaline has been shown to help circumvent the creation of plague in blood vessels, stop calcium from amassing in urine, promote bone health and a host of other benefits are linked to alkalinity. A diet dominated by unprocessed plant-based alkaline foods results in a more alkaline urine pH level which speaks to the protection of healthy cells and better retention of essential minerals for optimal wellbeing.
“The pH of the body is measured on a scale between 0 and 14, with 7 being neutral. Anything over 7 is alkaline and anything under is acidic. It’s thought that for the body to remain healthy, its pH must stay between 7.35 and 7.45. The problem is that our diets are becoming more acidic and most people are not aware that a large percentage of the foods we normally consume can alter these levels. As a consequence, the organs experience a series of problems when trying to carry out their functions. As toxin levels increase, tissues begin to deteriorate and serious diseases occur.”
An alkaline forming diet, including the consumption of alkaline water, is the best bet to staying healthy and starving off diseases that are typically encouraged by acidic conditions. Everyone knows that doctors recommend at 6 to 8 glasses of water be consumed daily however depending on the needs of an individual’s body plain old water will not suffice.
