And the lesson learned?
We were out with friends the other night, and my hub decided to have the two small glasses of beer they offered as we were all playing a different version of dominoes. I was dubious about him consuming beer, which is highly acidic, so we added 3 drops of Alkazone to each glass—which has potassium bicarbonate it, to hopefully make it more alkaline. Turns out 3 drops wasn’t enough. The next morning, he woke up to a pH of 6.5. Ouch.
But he got back on the stick. He’s also learning about higher alkaline foods. For example, his breakfast the other morning was sliced eggplant coated with egg whites and almond flour. And they were tasty!
And he realizes that he’ll probably have to stay off of all acidic alcohol the rest of this life if we want to keep his pH close to 7.25, which is our lifetime goal after surgery this time. Luckily, he’s fine with it. This will be in addition to the Frankincense Oil (see photo to right–it arrived!) and Apricot seeds for extra measure.
How alkalinity has beaten back another cancer: breast tumors
In the meantime, a friend sent me a July 2013 study which showed what an alkaline environment can do against breast cancer. It states:
Acidity promotes invasion and enhances metastatic potential. Tumor acidity can be buffered by systemic administration of an alkaline agent such as sodium bicarbonate.
And the study worked. They used two groups of mice with breast tumors, treating one group with sodium bicarbonate (aka baking soda) and the other without. And the potassium bicarbonate treated mice saw a near 50% reduction in their tumors as compared to the untreated group. Interesting to note that the pH peaked about an hour after administration, and within 6-8 hours, decreased to pre-treatment pH. That underscored that dosing my husband three times a day fits this study, in spite of the fact that he completely eliminated his tumors last May with just two times a day dosing.
Interesting to note that the article states that extracellular pH of (not-treated) tumors is typically between 6.5 and 6.9–i.e. acidic! And the use of sodium bicarbonate “alkalinizes the interstitial tumor space”.
And another article brought to my attention
And then came another article to my attention titled “How An Alkaline Approach Can Successfully Treat Cancer”. It’s not a study like the above, but mentions the same strategy we are following, i.e. it affirms that “to move the internal cancer cell pH from the optimal mitosis range of pH 6.5 to 7.5, to above 8” will shorten the life of the cancer cell.
It also covers the problem of electrolyte rebalancing when trying to alkalize one’s body (and specifically urine, in my husband’s case with bladder cancer), which is extremely helpful, since we will be switching over more and more to potassium bicarbonate in October. He underscores that it’s important to test frequently to watch for this balance, which we will be doing.
Onward and upward! Two weeks and counting!
P.S. I asked him why not just have the VA simply do another scope to see if they are gone…and his reply “Because I’d rather be knocked out!!” i.e. nothing worse than having a probe going up “there”. Cough.
