"An acidic body is a breeding ground for disease, but no disease can exist in an alkaline environment." REPEAT ... An acidic body is a breeding ground for disease but NO disease can exist in an alkaline environment.
Dr. Otto Warberg/Wolfe Holistic Health Clinic, British Columbia Canada
Dr. Otto Warberg received the Nobel prize for discovering the cause of cancer - this being lack of oxygen (or low alkaline pH). Scientists have found that healthy people have systems that are alkaline. http://www.thewolfeclinic.com/
Two approaches exist today as to the best way to prevent or alleviate disease conditions:
* One wants to add toxins (poisons/prescription drugs) to a sick body, the idea is that the toxins will "fight" the illness. In other words, just give the patient toxic drugs and you sometimes get an immediate improvement; that is, if treatment is effective, no more disease symptoms.
** The other wants to remove toxins from a sick body, this is also called detox, the idea is that the toxins cause the disease. Detox removes the toxins and allows the body to heal itself ... REPEAT ... Detox removes the toxins and allows the body to heal itself.http://www.detoxifynow.com/cause_of_disease.htmlThe latter works!
It is possible to 'eat yourself well'!!
Eating more fruits and raw vegetables will help alkalize your body; remember disease cannot exist in an alkaline environment.
Transitioning to a more alkaline diet-- more raw veggies and fruits-- can go a long way towards improving your overall health. It requires a commitment to a healthier lifestyle and discipline to stick with it.
I've evolved to a more vegan/vegetarian lifestyle, and yes sometimes I fall off the wagon, but the amazing thing about it is when I do, my body lets me know ... "girlfriend get back on!!"
I feel so much better inside and out. And being an avid cook, it's been a challenge but also fun learning new healthier ways to cook old favorites.
Multi-award winning artist Kirk Franklin teams with the American Heart Association to raise awareness about about heart disease and stroke which are by-products of a poor non-alkaline diet.
