Early in the 20th century, Dr. Otto H. Warburg postulated a hypothesis that brought him the Noble prize and discovered the real cause of cancer. Namely, he found that the actual cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency.
Oxygen deficiency causes acidity in the body, and cancer cells are anaerobic, meaning that they cannot thrive in an alkaline environment, which is rich in oxygen.
On the other hand, normal cells are dependent on oxygen, and if you deprive a cell for 48 hours from 35% of oxygen, it will become cancerous.
The pH levels of our body are affected mainly by the food we consume, and in order to survive, our body needs to establish a healthy balance between the alkaline and acid in all cells and fluids. The pH level in the blood should be slightly alkaline, at 7.365.
Unfortunately, modern diets are rich in acid-forming foods, such as refined grains, GMOs, and processed sugars.
An imbalance in the pH levels in the body accelerates the aging process and causes various health issues, such as diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases, heartburn, and even cancer.
Dr. Robert O. Young claims that acidity causes major health problems as parasites, viruses, bad bacteria, and Candida thrive in acidic environments, while an alkaline environment neutralizes them.
Therefore, we need to find a way to neutralize acidity in the body and alkalize the system.
Here is one of the most effective natural remedies to do so:
- 2 tbsp. of fresh lemon juice or ACV
- 1/3 tsp. of baking soda
In a glass, mix the ingredients and they will immediately create a fizz. Keep adding baking soda until it stops, and fill the glass with water. Drink it right away, and you will fight acidosis and stomach acid and strengthen your health.
Baking soda is a highly alkaline agent, so adding only a small amount of it will help you get a gallon of alkaline water. The addition of lemons to water also makes the water alkaline, as fresh lemons are anionic. Therefore, as soon as you drink the water, it will become alkaline as your body reacts with the lemons’ anions during the digestive process.
Furthermore, apple cider vinegar is rich in alkaline nutrients, such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and more, which can reduce the amount of acid your kidneys need to filter out. This elevates the urine pH and actually alkalizes the system.
