So I found some articles about this ideology, theory by “Dr. Robert Young” which says that all diseases come from acid enviroment in your body. And all of them can be cured with alkaline-based-diet. Including illnesses as lethal as cancer.
First, I was pretty interested and found it 100% true. But it seemed so simple and without scientific standing or evidence. Then I found these : http://www.quackwatch.com/11Ind/young3.html
Now I’m quite uncertain.
I’d like to read others views and opinions.. Thank you
@andrejn26, possibly more correlation than causation. Human blood has a very very fine Ph tolerance 7.35-7.45. And many diseases cause the blood to become slightly acidic.
Which doesn’t take a genius to worth out that adding some alkaline substance back to the body bringing the blood back within a normal Ph range allowing natural pathophysiological processes to resume.
As far as cancer is concerned though, mutations in the genome, specifically the p53 gene- are more likely to come about because of mutagen rather than a slightly more acidic blood flow.
@andrejn26, Dude all i know is I have been eating mostly alkaline food for the past 2 weeks and felt great more energy then ever. The holiday fucked me and I broke binging on a lot of processed food. Felt like shit even caught a minor cold but I ate mostly alkaline yesterday and I feel great this morning. As far as I understand is once your body is in balance you want to eat 80% alkaline and the other 20 acid forming. The problem I have with all of this is the amount of conflicting information on what is alkaline and what is not. Some information I have picked up is that sprouted seeds are much more alkaline forming then regular, watermelon and lemons are among the highest, and raw and unfiltered honey is the tits.
