Alkaline Balance and its importance to your health

Alternative and integrative cancer doctors understand that acid-alkaline balance is vitally important factor necessary for achieving and maintaining good health. Acid-alkaline imbalances can lead to disease, including cancer, and today,  largely due to poor dietary habits, many people suffer from such imbalances.


Simply put, acid-alkaline balance refers to the balance between the amount of acids and non-acids (alkalis) that are found in your body’s fluids (blood, saliva, and urine) and tissues. This ratio of acids to non-acids is determined by measuring pH levels. In terms of your body’s health, pH is the measurement of the acid-alkaline ratio of your body’s fluids and tissues. When this ratio is balanced, good health results. When it is imbalanced—either too acidic or too alkaline—the stage is set for disease to take hold. pH is measured on a scale of 0 to 14. A pH of 7 is considered neutral. A pH level below 7 indicates an acidic condition exists, while a pH level above 7 represents an alkaline condition.


In order to thrive, your body’s blood chemistry needs to be slightly alkaline (ideally having a pH of 7.4). When your pH blood reading moves too far below or above this number and remains that way, inevitably you will become sick. Some people who are chronically ill have a blood pH that is overly alkaline. However, the majority of people suffering from chronic illness suffer from an unbalanced blood pH that is far too acidic. This is especially true for the vast majority of people with cancer. Chronic over-acidity causes the body’s bloodstream to change to an environment that diminishes oxygen levels and supports unhealthy microorganisms, including cancer cells and tumors.


Not all parts of your body operate within the same pH range. That’s because there are different levels of acidity and alkalinity in which your body’s various organs, tissues, and fluids can function optimally. In each of these areas of the body, numerous chemical and enzyme reactions occur. For these reactions to be performed as nature intended, a narrow pH range is necessary. Small changes in pH levels can profoundly affect the body’s overall function and energy levels.


Both saliva and urine have a wide range of pH values, yet health can still exist as long as these ranges are not exceeded or diminished. Blood pH, on the other hand, must be maintained within a much narrower range for health to also be maintained.
