Cancer affects all of us. Its growing pervasiveness forces us to think hard about the current state of health care and the future of medicine. Have any of these questions weighed on you? What is the cause of all cancers? What is cancer—a mutant cell, a virus, a mold or an acidic liquid? Is cancer a noun or is it actually an adjective that explains what’s happening to the body cells? Are tumors bad or good? These questions have certainly weighed on me.
Most of the last 30 years of my cancer research has been focused on what is happening to the cells as it pertains specifically to the environment around those cells. Because medicine should not solely focus on the diagnosis and treatment of a disease but also endeavor to prevent illness by the promotion of health and fitness. Why? Because disease is an illusion! In reality, what we call disease is the manifestation of the body struggling to prevent over-acidification/fermentation/breakdown of the body’s cells, tissues, organs or glands. Disease is the body in preservation mode straining to maintain the homeostasis of its internal, alkaline fluids.
Cancer and an alkaline body are often brought up in the same sentence. The question that always follows is can cancer survive in an alkaline environment.
All cells in the body have an optimal ph which is acid alkaline and an optimal temperature at which they function. If your body were to cool down to between 90 – 92 degrees you’re not going to be moving around.
Our bodies function best at a ph of 7.4 and when you get up to a ph of 7.5 or 7.6, cancer cells just can’t do their thing. Part of a cancer cells requirement is acid production and in an alkaline environment they can’t produce those acids.
As an example, remember when trying to stick your head out of the car window and the wind is pounding you in the face as you’re going 60 mph and you can’t breathe so you have to turn your head to the side. It’s the same thing for cancer cells, it’s too much alkalinity and they can’t handle it.
So What Is Cancer?
Cancer is the body attempting to maintain alkaline homeostasis. Cancer is the body in preservation mode trying to maintain its natural healthy alkaline design. So first, you must understand that cancer is unequivocally not a disease, but a symptom, or better yet an effect of gastrointestinal, respiratory, environmental and metabolic acids that build up in the blood and then thrown off into the tissues poisoning and suppressing our immune system, making it increasingly difficult to maintain the alkaline pH of the internal fluids of the body.
Cancer is not a cell, but an acidic, toxic liquid that spoils and degenerates the body cells that make up our tissues, organs and glands. This happens when toxic acidic waste products are not properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination, which are urination, perspiration, respiration, and defecation.
Your body is like a car. You’re motor runs 24/7, which requires energy. And when energy is being used, a waste product is produced. Just like a car produces exhaust, your body produces carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, lactic acid, or uric acid when it uses energy. So acid is constantly being created by the body cells, which has to be eliminated. If not, it will cause cancer!
When energy is being used to think, to move, to breathe, at the same time an acidic waste product is being created. If the acid is not eliminated, it is pushed out into the connective tissue. It is your connective tissue that becomes the ‘acid catcher’ in order to maintain the purity and alkalinity of the blood. The blood has to maintain its purity and alkalinity. If the blood varies even just one-tenth of one point, from its healthy pH of 7.365, you can have ill effects. When the blood pH starts dropping or if it starts going up, the body will do whatever it can to maintain its delicate pH. This is very significant in order to understand the cause and treatment of cancer and why it’s not a cell but the spoiling of the cells by dietary and metabolic acids, which have not been properly eliminated through normal elimination. When you are enervated or fatigued you do not have the energy to move the acidic waste products out of the body to maintain the purity of the blood. When this happens the blood pushes these acidic waste products out into the connective and fatty tissues in order to preserve its alkaline 7.365 balance.
For example, when acidic waste elimination takes place through the mucus membrane of the nose, it is called a cold—catarrh of the nose. And when this crisis is repeated for years, the mucus membrane thickens and ulcerates, and the bones enlarge, closing the passages. At this stage hay fever, then asthma develop. When the tonsils or any other respiratory passages become the seat of the crisis of acidity then we have tonsillitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, and finally cancer. You see, it’s progressive. It’s the same disease at different levels of acidity. All of these symptoms are happening in different progressions from the same thing—varying levels of acidosis.
Hence all cancerous conditions are the expulsion of acids from the blood and then the tissues, organs and glands and are essentially the same character evolving from the same cause, namely systemic acidosis—a crisis of toxemia.
Cancer is not a noun but an adjective expressing the process of cellular transformation. Sugar is the waste product. In fact, that’s why a banana gets sweeter and sweeter as it ferments. So sugar cravings are the body’s signal that the body needs more sustainable energy. However, sugar stimulates and gives the body a deceptive quick-fix—an illusion. Whereas salt provides the matrix of life and gives your body the rise in sustainable energy, over a longer period of time, without the high and extreme lows that come from eating an acid—whether it be sugar or any other acidic food or drink.
How Do I Fight Cancer?
If you don’t want cancer, if you want to prevent cancer, you have to eliminate your acidic wastes through defecation, urination, respiration or perspiration. Because cancer is not a cell, but a poisonous acidic liquid. A cancer cell is a cell that has been spoiled or poisoned by this acidic liquid—the metabolic, respiratory, environmental and/or gastrointestinal acids that are produced internally, or may be taken in via the lungs or skin. When this condition develops within us, the body will go into the preservation mode. One preservation tactic the body employs is to form fibrous materials, which cross-link, to encapsulate the spoiled cancerous cells, thus forming a protective tumor. Hence, the tumor is the body’s protective mechanism to encapsulate spoiled or poisoned acidic cells which have not been properly eliminated—isolating them from healthy cells that make up the tissues, organs and glands of the body.
So, the tumor is not the problem. Let the tumor go. Let it do its job. The focus must be placed not on the tumor but on the internal environment around the tumor, which is full of acidic cells. Think of any cancerous condition as a systemic acidic condition that affects first the weakest parts of the body.
The composition of our body fluids, that bath the outside of our cells, must be controlled very carefully from moment to moment and day to day with no single important constituent varying more than one percent. The good news is that this condition of health can be controlled and you can do it yourself!
All conditions of cancer potentially can be reversed if the treatments are focused on the fluids and not the cells of the body. Therefore it doesn’t matter what the cancerous condition is, because cancer is not the cause but the effect of an over-acidic lifestyle and diet which is the cause of cancer. You do not GET cancer, you DO cancer with your daily lifestyle and dietary choices!
The future is here and NOW. My hope is that The pH Miracle for Cancer will expand your knowledge and protect you from the acidic condition medical science calls cancer.

How much weight does the alkaline water trend really have in the medical world? Let’s take a closer look.
Wouldn’t it be lovely if all you had to do to avoid getting cancer was crack open a bottle of your favorite alkaline water and start chugging?
Jorge J. Nieva, MD, associate professor of clinical medicine at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center of Keck Medicine of USC for his expertise insights.
The internet rumor is that cancer is caused by extra acidity in your body, and that by drinking alkaline water you can “neutralize” your body’s acidity. While we wish cancer prevention was that amazingly simple, science comes down on the side of “not very likely.”
Here, we dive deep into the reasons.
pH and Your Body
Healthy bodies have a pH of about 7.4, which is slightly alkaline. (In liquids, 7 is neutral, anything lower is acidic, while anything higher is alkaline or basic.) Your body is really good at maintaining that pH of 7.4. It has to be. “Your body’s PH is not going to change from 7.4 to 7.6, explains Dr. Nieva. “If it changes much out of that range, you’re in the ICU.”
“Your lungs and kidney don’t let your PH change; that’s what they do,” he explains. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most common acid in your body and is a constantly being produced by your cells. When you produce CO2 in excess (for example, after an intense workout), your body is designed to eliminate it. Your blood carries the acid away from your organs and you breathe the excess out of your lungs. That is why you breath faster when you exercise, it is to keep your body’s pH normal and remove the excess CO2. Your kidneys also get in on the act, eliminating acid in the urine, but at a much slower rate than your lungs.
So where did the idea come from that alkaline water can prevent cancer?
Cancer cells can’t live in a high alkaline environment and the immediate areas in your body surrounding the cancer cells can become acidic. The thinking follows that if your body is more alkaline, you won’t get cancer.
Wait, that sounds like fans of alkaline water may be onto something. They aren’t?
While cancer cells can’t survive in high alkaline environments, neither can any of the other cells in your body.
And while the tissues immediately surrounding the tumor are more acidic, it’s a result of the way it use oxygen and create energy, not because the tumor itself is inherently more acidic. Researchers don’t know exactly why this process happens and are studying it, as it may lead to the discovery of more effective cancer treatments.
Now onto alkaline water…
Everything you eat or drink goes straight your stomach, where it is greeted by your stomach acid, which has a pH of 3. It sounds redundant, but your stomach acid naturally has to be acidic to break down the food that you’ve eaten or liquid you’ve drunk. The acidity also makes your food sterile so that you don’t get infections from the bacteria on the surface of foods. From there, it’s onto your intestines where the whole mix gets neutralized back to slightly alkaline by your pancreatic secretions and enzymes. Your intestines are the great leveler and everything you eat ends up at the same pH, regardless of the pH it had while still on your plate or in your glass.
If you’ve been chugging alkaline water by the gallon, you’ll just pee it out in the end, anyway. “You take in alkaline water, you make alkaline urine,” Dr. Nieva says. “That’s all you’re going to do.”
Your body is an efficient machine and it’s designed to maintain a safe, slightly alkaline level of 7.4. The good news is, that unless you have a kidney problem, you’re not doing any harm by drinking alkaline water.
There’s so much information surrounding cancer and diet that it can be hard to separate the myths from the facts. That’s especially true when it comes to trendy diets.
The alkaline diet is one such trendy diet that often comes up in conversations about both cancer treatment and prevention.
What is the alkaline diet?
The alkaline diet is based on the theory that eating certain foods can change the body’s acid levels, also called the pH levels. Some believe that changing the body’s pH levels can improve your health and help you lose weight or even prevent cancer.
But there’s no way the foods you eat can alter the pH level of your blood. The body’s pH is a very tightly regulated system. If you change your diet, you may see changes in the pH of your saliva or urine because these are waste products, but there’s no way you could ever eat enough that it really impacts your blood.
What is alkaline water?
While we can’t comment on specific brands, most alkaline water is just like bottled water with different mineral content. Alkaline water also can’t change the pH of your blood.
What is the link between the alkaline diet and cancer?
Some studies have shown that acidic environments help cancer cells grow. So the idea is that a diet high in alkaline foods (high pH) and low in acidic foods will raise the body’s pH levels (make the body more alkaline) and prevent or even cure cancer.
It should be noted that these are studies of cancer cells in a dish and do not represent the complex nature of how tumors behave in the human body. And food cannot change the pH of your blood.
What should cancer patients know before changing their diets?
Research shows that there’s no one diet or food that can cure cancer. But proper nutrition can help you feel your best during cancer treatment – or at any time.
That’s why it’s so important to talk to a doctor or a dietitian before beginning a new diet. This is true regardless of whether you have cancer. Different diet plans work for different people, and your doctor or dietitian can help you determine if a new diet will help you reach your health goals.
Ask your doctor here to refer you to a clinical dietitian. Each clinic has an assigned dietitian who is available to help patients at all stages of cancer treatment.
Your dietitian can assess your nutrition and talk with you about your nutrition goals, which may change at different stages of treatment. Your dietitian can help limit your diet’s adverse effects on your treatment, minimize side effects and help you cope with new food sensitives that you’ve developed since your diagnosis.
Now, the most important piece is how to you make all the cells in your body alkaline. Well, you do that in a number of ways and the first place to start is nutrition and the food you’re putting in your mouth.
The more food you consume that is alkaline, the healthier you will be. Also, remember there are some foods that are acidic but once consumed become alkalizing in the body like lemons.
Alkaline Juice Cleanse Recipes
Our alkaline juice cleanse recipes provide a good way of helping your body to maintain a slightly alkaline state. Alkaline diet theory is gaining more and more attention every day and nutritionists are starting to take it much more seriously.
Our natural healthy state is a ph balance of 7.35-7.45, which is slightly alkaline. It’s known that when your body starts veering towards an acidic state it has to work extra hard to bring it back into a state that is slightly alkaline. One of the ways this is done is by sapping calcium reserves, as well as other minerals out of our bones in order to help buffer this imbalance.
Some nutritionists now, as well as many others are also seeing a link between acidity in our bodies and many poor health conditions that are plaguing our modern world. Many chronic health conditions are being connected to this acid/alkaline balance, and while there is still debate as to what the absolute truth is. There are many that are convinced that this imbalance is at the bottom of a myriad of health problems.
The alkaline juice recipes below use a good mix of vegetables and fruit that are known to be highly alkalizing for your body. Many alkaline juice recipes use fruit that is higher in sugar, which according to the top researchers in this field are acidic due to this sugar content. In keeping in tune with this, I have done my absolute best to use only alkaline ingredients that are lower in sugar and that are also found in the lists of the top authorities relating to this field.
Carrots and coconut juice have been found by many authorities in this field to be among the few types of fruit and vegetables with sugar to have an overall alkalizing effect once inside of the body. For this reason I have chosen to include them in some of the alkaline juice recipes that are listed here.
(If you are looking for a way to get alkaline more optimally, you should really consider The Complete Guide To Doing A 7 Day Juice Cleanse. Our eBook provides a whole lot of value, and will give you all of the information you need to do a good alkaline juice cleanse.)

Tropical Alkaline Breeze
1 Young thai coconut
2 Stalks Celery
If you want something more precise.
Young thai coconut juice= 11 ounces juice
(4 and 1/2 cups carrots chopped) Carrots= 9 ounces juice
(1 and 1/2 cups chopped) Celery= 4 ounces juice
Yields about 24 ounces of juice.
This alkaline juice cleanse recipe makes a moderately sweet juice that is just awesome! When using the young coconut you do not juice any of the actual flesh. You simply open the coconut and then pour the coconut water into your juice mix. Happy juicing!
Refreshing Green Energy
1/2 Bunch (7 leaves) Kale
1 Large handful Basil
2 Stalks (bulb part leaves included) Fennel
4 Large Carrots
1 Knuckle Ginger
If you want something more precise.
(2 and 1/2 cups chopped) Kale= 2 ounces juice
(1 cup chopped) Basil= 1 and 1/2 ounces juice
(2 cups chopped) Cucumber= 6 ounces juice
(1 cup chopped) Fennel= 3 ounces juice
(3 cups chopped) Carrots= 7 ounces juice
(1 and 1/2 inch square) Ginger= under an ounce of juice
Yields about 20 and 1/2 ounces of juice.
When it comes to the fennel in this juice you want to cut two stalks including the bulb part on the bottom. This will give you the stalks, leafy part, and the bulb part. This recipe is among the alkaline juice cleanse recipes that creates more of a vegetable juice, which is not really sweet at all. The flavors do balance each other out well though and this juice is lower on the glycemic index. This juice is also very alkalizing and makes a great addition to an alkaline diet.
The kale we used when creating this recipe was a curly variety of kale, but you can use whatever type of kale you like.
The Green Cooler
3 Ounces fresh squeezed wheatgrass juice
1 Juice of Coconut
1 Large Cucumber
If you want something more precise.
3 ounces fresh squeezed wheatgrass juice
8 and 1/2 ounces coconut juice(water)
(2 cups chopped) Cucumber= 6 and 1/2 ounces juice
Yields about 18 ounces of juice.
This alkaline juice cleanse recipe makes a juice that’s not really sweet, yet you can taste the coconut and wheatgrass juice through the cucumber. Young coconut juice generally is much better than the typical coconut juice, but I did not have access to that when I made this juice. Whatever type of coconut you have will work as it will still contribute to the alkalinity of this juice recipe when it comes to alkaline juice recipes and also juice cleanse recipes in general. You have to be creative as you want to keep them lower in sugar, yet also tasty enough to enjoy. I compiled a start to finish picture below of my little adventure on the morning this juice was made. I just love making myself a nice tall alkaline juice in the morning! What a way to start the day!
The Mini Super Alkaline Juice!
1/2 Large Cucumber
4 Stalks Celery
1/2 Large Lemon (or 2 small lemons)
If you want something more precise.
(2 cups chopped) Cucumber= 6 ounces juice
(2 cups chopped) Celery= 5 ounces juice
(3/4 cup chopped) Lemon= 1 and 1/2 ounces juice
Yields 12 and 1/2 to 13 ounces of juice.
As far as alkaline juice cleanse recipes go, this one definitely has a lemony juice taste to it. The cucumber, as well as being very alkaline, helps to level out the flavor though and makes this an easy juice to enjoy. When juicing the lemons, use the entire lemon (peel and all)!
Cucumber, celery, and lemon alkaline juice cleanse recipe
Leafless Alkaline Salad Juice
3 Heads Broccoli
3 Stalks Celery
1/2 Large Cucumber
If you want something more precise.
(5 cups chopped) Broccoli= 8 and 1/2 ounces juice
(4 cups chopped) Carrots= 9 ounces juice
(1 and 3/4 cups chopped) Celery= 5 ounces juice
(1 and 3/4 cups chopped) Cucumber= 4 ounces juice
Yields about 26 and 1/2 ounces of juice.
Alkaline juice cleanse recipes need to tie together nutritious alkaline ingredients in a way that is palatable. This juice makes a very nutritious alkaline blend and is also easy to drink.
