3 tips to raise your body’s Ph and make it hard for abnormal cancer cells

Having a balanced ph is a good way to avoid cancer!

There has been extensive research pointing that cancer thrives in an acidic environment (low in PH). So, to raise your body’s Ph is the best way to make your body an inhospitable environment for abnormal cancer cells.


The idea that cancer thrives in low Ph has come from observing that tumor cells, convert glucose (sugar) and other substances to lactic acid. Another feature of cancer pathology is that glutamine contributes to the core metabolism of proliferating cells by supporting energy production and biosynthesis. Therefore raising your body’s ph is the first step onto balancing your body’s health.

The role of the glutamine amino-acid in cancer cells proliferation, was proven in a research on pancreatic cancer. This study found that cells in low pH microenvironment are able to survive upon glucose deprivation, but not upon glutamine deprivation. In contrast, cells in normal physiologic pH culture could not survive upon glucose deprivation. Meaning that glutamine metabolism is essential for survival of pancreatic cancer cells under low pH conditions.

A normal PH should be 7.35 and 7.45. To raise your body’s ph, there must be three intertwined systems of your body that need extra attention. So, the 3 tips to raise your body’s PH, and make it hard for cancer include: eat well, detox and drink well.

Eat well

Treat your GUT, because the gut microbiota plays an important role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases and cancer. This is because the gut mucosa and the internal environment are protected by the innate and adaptive immune systems. The majority of immunologically active cells of the body are present in tissues of the gastrointestinal tract, where the prevalence of immunogenic agents, including food and components of the microbiota, is the highest. Almost 80% of the immunologically active cells of the body belong to the mucosal-associated immune system. Some things you can do to reestablish your gut function is to eat probiotic foods, which have been proven to improve gut microbiota and intestinal microbes

INTESTINE health is important: Raising your body’s ph, also involves looking after your intestines. Just as the gut, and the circulatory system, the development of a strong immunity consists in looking after the intestines’ microbiota. Studies have demonstrated that the intestinal microbiota plays an important role in pathogen resistance, both by direct interaction with pathogenic bacteria and by influencing the immune system.


Focus on "cleaning" the circulatory system/liver — The liver filters the blood, which carries oxygen and nutrients through the body, via the circulatory system through arteries, veins and capillaries. Therefore, if the gut or intestines are out of balance, then the blood will carry away waste products through out the circulatory system. As a result, this can cause the spread of abnormal cell formation. This was demonstrated by studies on white blood cells, which have been proven to have a role in spreading cancer.

Raising your body’s ph will allow glutamine to not be used by any abnormal cell as a means of proliferating itself. There has been extensive research that polyphenol compounds derived from plants like Camellia sinensis (green tea), have an antioxidative effect in the body and are potent detoxifiers.

Drink well

The average adult has between 55% to 60% water in their body. So, given the necessity of staying hydrated and avoid acidosis, a condition found in cancer patients. There must be a special attention to fluid consumption. Therefore, the best way to stay hydrated is to drink clean water free of added chemicals. There has been studies that demonstrated that the use Ionized Alkaline Water can be considered as a major safe strategy in the management of acidosis.
