The Importance of an Alkaline Diet

by Yohanan Burket

pH scale healthThink about what you had for breakfast this morning. Perhaps you had eggs, toast & butter, coffee, and orange juice. Maybe you put preserves on your toast as well. Is your breakfast well-balanced from the standpoint of pH? The eggs provide you with ample amounts of protein and vitamin A. The toast provides some carbohydrates, and the butter provides good fat. Coffee contains magnesium, an essential nutrient. The caffeine in coffee only becomes a problem if you have more than 1-2 cups of coffee each day. The preserves generally contain berries which provide some anti-oxidants. The orange juice provides some alkalinity to offset some of the acidity of the eggs, toast, butter, and coffee. In restaurants, parsley is usually provided (and ignored) by patrons. This is a mistake – the parsley is a very alkaline substance that will neutralize acidity. Other things you can take to bolster alkalinity is to add lemon to your water (or tea), put cayenne pepper on your eggs, or add a cucumber to your breakfast diet. The importance of an alkaline diet is that it can lengthen your life!

What Happens to Acidic People?

Question: Who are the most acidic people?

Answer: Cancer patients.

Cancer patients have a urine pH of 5.5 on average. This is two orders of magnitude more acidic than normal, which is a pH of approximately 7.4. Normal pH is defined by the pH of the blood, which the body regulates. The body regulates the blood pH so closely that if it goes outside of the range of 7.35 – 7.45, you’re dead! The body does what it needs to do to keep the blood pH regulated, including stealing bone material to counteract too much acidity.

Urine pH, not saliva pH, is an indication of the overall pH of the body. This is one of the reasons for doctors taking urine samples (there are other reasons as well, such as color indications).

The most famous baseball player of all time, Babe Ruth, was acidic.

He was second to none in athletic ability, but had a short life, dying in his 50s. Lou Gehrig, another famous baseball player, also had a short life, dying in his 40s. They could have been eating only the “food” found in a typical ballpark, namely hot dogs, popcorn, peanuts, and soda pop. All of these “foods” are acidic, especially the soda pop. Adding insult to injury, the popcorn and peanuts are loaded with fungus! The sugar in the soda pop feeds the fungus, and the hot dogs contain nitrate, a known carcinogen. The environment created in an acidic body is ideal for growing fungus, as fungus procreates in a process of fermentation. Fermentation is further promoted by the ingestion of sugar. The whole process creates even more acidity in the form of uric acid. Add to that the lactic acid created by an athlete, and his pH is lowered to that of a cancer patient.

Gout is defined as inflammation of the joints, which is caused by excessive amounts of uric acid. Since the body does not produce uric acid, it must come from another source. That other source is fungus, which excretes uric acid. If you hear that someone has gout, you now know it means he has fungal issues.

Cherries have been shown to reduce the pain of gout. As cherries are alkaline, they help to neutralize the uric acid. Other factors are probably involved, but that is beyond the scope of this short essay.

Beer, and alcoholic drinks in general, always worsen gout in gout patients. This is not surprising, as alcohol is technically a sugar and therefore feeds fungus.

Fungus Under My Skin: A Test Case

Fungus extractionWhen I had itching skin in the past, I found that putting alcohol (in the form of after-shave lotion) on the itchy skin stopped the itch. What I had done was to “feed” the fungus underneath the skin, causing it to grow. The itching stopped because after the fungus is fed, it stops emitting the enzymes it needs to feed on its host. These enzymes cause itching.

I now am able to kill surface fungus by application of alkaline substances, such as diluted zinc chloride. There is initial itching after application of the zinc chloride, which gradually turns to pain, signaling the death of the fungus. When fungus dies, it emits neurological toxins that cause pain. Later, the pain diminishes and the dead fungus exits via the skin. It helps to run hot water over the area to open the pores, expediting the process (I performed this on my feet).

This procedure proves that alkaline substances kill fungus, and therefore cancer. Cancer is ALWAYS accompanied by fungus, and if you kill the fungus, you kill the cancer every time. It makes you wonder about the true nature of cancer, doesn’t it? It seems to me that cancer is really only fungus in disguise.
