The Saliva, Acidity and Alkalinity in Breast Cancer Healing

 Immediately after a diagnosis of breast cancer, the entire world and the outlook of the person diagnosed changes radically.I remember a feeling of hopelessness, helplessness, even desperation, which overwhelms. Hope shuts down.

Somehow the sun sets on our parade, the sunniest day becomes dark, clouds become the norm.

There is a vision shift and the cheeriest person loses cheer for a while. Getting back to a pre-diagnosis mode of operation seems hardly likely again.

And, perhaps, that is a good thing. Perhaps the way we were, the way we interacted, the way we communicated, the way we lived life might have played a big role in the manifestation of the disease, apart from or in addition to any genetic pre-disposition or environmental contamination.One of the pre-diagnosis behaviours I believe helped in my healing was a revisiting of my nutritional habits. My body was in a highly acidic state, a state which it is said is welcoming of disease. I was not digesting, not absorbing, not eliminating as should be done normally. Yet, I was not conscious of that. The diagnosis of cancer was a call to consciousness.

I began to consciously seek information on digestion. And lo and behold, the information I got was very informative.

And the simplest yet most profound revelation I made – digestion begins with the saliva!

Saliva is produced in and secreted from salivary glands. The basic secretory units of salivary glands are clusters of cells called an acini. These cells secrete a fluid that contains water, electrolytes, mucus and enzymes, all of which flow out of the acinus into collecting ducts.

ph testing is one of the best methods of making daily progress measurements in your healing progress. It is simple, inexpensive and meaningful.

PH testing is perhaps, the easiest and most significant marker that you can use on a daily basis to constantly monitor your healing process. One of the important properties of a dietary approach to treating cancer relates to ph. As regards the problem of acidity, I was told that disease does not develop in an alkaline body. That was the advice that started me on the road to the cancer free state that I now enjoy, so far, so good.

“pH” is chemical shorthand for “hydrogen ion concentration” .. Less than 7 is acidic and more that 7 is basic (alkaline). The most healthy ph is 7.0 or 7.2, which is neutral to slightly alkaline.

PH paper is available from many sources. Measurement is very easy. You simply tear a half inch strip from the roll, wet it on the tip of your tongue, and compare the color to the chart on the side of the box.

The most significant reading is taken in the morning upon arising and before anything is eaten or drunk. This will provide a daily reading of your healing process. If your body is acid, it is not healing well.

Our bodies are made acid by two primary causes, eating acid forming foods , and stress. PH measurement is a good indicator of progress in monitoring body fluids (saliva, urine) effectively.

I would like to know how many of you diagnosed with breast cancer, are, or have been conscious of the role acidity and alkalinity plays in breast cancer healing. How many of you believe that it can play a role? Is it an acceptable CAM practice? and do health professionals advise women on acid and alkaline forming foods?

Comments on: "Ordinary women’s health and healing from breast cancer" (3)

  1. […] to the earlier article on celebrities who are also ordinary women dealing with breast cancer  (https://muriella.wordpress.com/2007/04/17/ordinary-women-healing-from-breast-cancer/) it seems that a lot of buzz has been created – see article on Conversations about Cancer in […]

  2. A good friend of ours just went through an ordeal with breast cancer. The incidence of breast cancer has increased to 1 in 8 women, with 4,000 new cases weekly.

    You might ask, could there be a preventive measure which is safe, cheap and widely available that has been overlooked?

    The answer is YES , and it’s the essential mineral, Iodine , which was added to table salt in 1924 as part of a national program to prevent Goiter. It turns out that this same Iodine in table salt is the key to breast cancer prevention as proposed by the following list of prestigious doctors: Guy Abraham, MD, Robert Derry MD PHD, David Brownstein MD, George Flechas MD, Donald Miller, M.D.

    Dr. B.A. Eskin published 80 papers over 30 years researching iodine and breast cancer, and he reports that iodine deficiency causes breast cancer and thyroid cancer in humans and animals. Iodine deficiency is also known to cause a pre-cancerous condition called fibrocystic breast disease.

    Ghent published a paper in 1993 which showed iodine supplementation works quite well to reverse and resolve fibrocystic changes of the breast, and this is again the subject of a current clinical study.

    Despite its obvious potential, not much has been done with Iodine treatment over the past 40 years in the United States. Since iodine isn’t patentable and is therefore unlikely to be profitable to market, there is no money to fund studies for “FDA approval”. However, FDA approval is not required since Iodine is already an additive to table salt at the supermarket.
