Acid or Alkaline Lesions
Re: Dietary modification cannot change the acidity of any part of your body except your urine. Your bloodstream and organs control acidity in a very narrow range.
Organs have a wider range of acidity than blood, and urine and saliva have an even wider range.
Lesions (foci of disease) have a labile (easily altered) pH range.
Blood? Urine? Saliva? You’re not a puddle. You’re not all blood, all urine, or all saliva.
How to you measure your dry protein content with litmus paper?
What about your dry fat content?
The life is IN the BLOOD, but the life IS the TISSUE (’tis you).
In the same way, the life is IN the soil, but the life IS in the tree, vine, or root.
What farmer would grow radishes on an alkali flat?
What farmer would grow asparagus on an acidic mountaintop?
What is a tumor? A solidified lesion without pH buffering.
What is an ulcer? A liquefied lesion without pH buffering.
A lesion can only be measured by a Beckman pH meter or its equivalent, bearing in mind that we’re still limited to the hydrogen-ion activity in water-based solutions.
The FOCI is unbalanced, not the body, which is effectively buffered.
As an example, referenced from Dr. Emanuel Revici’s textbook …
“The pH values of the painful areas of the tumor in this case showed considerably lability under the influence of spontaneous changes in the general acid-base balance of the body, reaching a high of 8.5. At this time, the pain was very severe. The pain became unbearable following oral administration of 5 grams of sodium bicarbonate, and the pH within the same tumor area reached 8.8. The pH of the normal tissues in this case, even after the administration of strong alkalizing agents, never exceeded 7.4, while the tumor pH was never below 7.6.”

Thanks for your insights. This is an ancient topic, but bears repeating.
Dr. Simoncini in Italy even injected a solution of sodium bicarbonate into patients to prompt them to heal themselves of cancer. The acid-alkaline balance is an idea that is hidden in plain sight and described by various others, including Dr. Robert Young, PhD, Dr. Susan Richards MD, Dr. Stefan Domenig MD, and Dr. Eva-Maria Kraske MD.
It seems to me that the subtlety is that an optimal balance for you, such as 70/30 by portions, may be individual and may depend on the general state of health of the person. Also, some people can digest acid-forming red meat well, while other people digest beans, grains, legumes, lentils, tofu, and so on better.

Did you notice the flaws in Dr. Tullio Simoncini’s book?
The reason he lost most of his advanced cancer cases is because cancer grows in an acidic environment and metastasizes in an alkaline one.
He had no way of measuring the “tipping point,” nor did he even know it existed.
Sodium bicarbonate is helpful for non-metastasizing cancers, e.g., uterine cancer, but ovarian and breast cancers are a whole other thing.
But Dr. Simoncini certainly doesn’t deserve the five-year prison sentence he’s serving.
Doctors are only allowed to kill patients by conventional means.

Thanks for your reply. No, I had not read his book. I was not aware that he is now in jail.
All doctors, at least conventional doctors, have their graveyards.
I have been influenced by the work of Dr. Robert Young, Dr. Stefan Domenig, and Dr. Eva-Maria Kraske, all of whom promote a mostly alkaline-forming set of eating habits or at least a balance.
I do not agree with your thesis of “Acidify or Die”, though I have not read the book. Perhaps this works for you, but it does not work for me. I am 63, taking no pills, with no pains, no insomnia, and happy to report I feel really healthy. I attribute this in part to cutting almost all sugar, dairy, grains, beans, and legumes from what I eat, all of which tend to be acid-forming.
I also subscribe to the idea of blood type (ABO) eating, which has been independently written up since 1980 by at least three doctors. I find it works for me, but it does not work for everybody. It is NOT a fad diet. Most of the critics have neither read the book nor tried it for themselves. It proves nothing, but the book “Eat Right 4 Your Type”, has received almost seven thousand reviews on amazon, almost ninety percent of which are four- or five-star! All I know is that it works for me, and I have seen it work for about a dozen others. It is not as simple as eating more vegetables and fruits.
What is your blood type, may I ask?

The Life Force is in the acid fraction of food. That’s why a chef puts the lid on a pot, to keep the acids from escaping. The alkaline minerals sink to the bottom of the pot.
I’m an “O” Blood Type, but I’m way north of the cheering section when it comes to blood horoscopes as well.
I experimented with a version of the Blood Type Diet two decades before Peter D’Adamo wrote his first book. Thereafter, I read three of his books, and found dozens of glaring errors.
I am 80, taking no pills, no supplements, no herbs, with no pains, no insomnia, and happy to report I feel really healthy.
I attribute this in part to buying white sugar in 25-piund bags, buying Cargill iodine-free salt in 5-pound boxes, drinking over a quart of coffee a day, and eating dairy (alkalizing), beans (acidifying), legumes (acidifying), and lots of eggs (acidifying) and potatoes.
My goal — at the very minimum — is to outlive David Rockefeller, who ran out of Life Force at 101.
What do you think we’re both doing in common to achieve such vibrant health?
Is it our desire to stay above ground as long as possible, or are we both just lucky?
Or maybe we avoid doctors, dentists, chiropractors, and medical mediums?

Thanks for your reply. What you and I have in common is avoiding doctors and hospitals and thinking for oneself about maintaining health. Also, we may be lucky. My grandfather lived to be 99. My father is 94.
I’m not so sure about your theory of the “life force” of the food. The nitrogen content and absence of minerals (demineralizing effect) makes some food acid-forming, according to another point of view. The mineral content make other food alkaline-forming.
“I am 80, taking no pills, no supplements, no herbs, with no pains, no insomnia, and happy to report I feel really healthy.

Hey, if this is true, and if this works for you, great, may you live to 100 or longer and die in good health, but I’m not just sure I believe this, or at least I know that this would not work for me, staples of sugar, dairy, beans, legumes, and potatoes.
Vegetables, fruits, meat, eggs, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, and water seem to work for me, but they may not work for you.
D’Adamo was not the only one to publish on blood type eating –
Various observers have also independently reported on the idea of an optimal acid-alkaine balance (specific to the individual) –
All I really know is that these ideas also work for me, and I think of promoting them. They are reported to work for many others, but not for everybody.

Luck is definitely involved, Ben.
I’ve been making up for my indiscretions as a former beatnik and hippie!
It took me 23 years to shed myself of my eyeglasses. It’s still easier to use them, but I can read a book or newspaper without them again for the last decade or so.
“Anything can cause anything, and anything can cure anything” is a good motto to live by.
Placebo and attitude play a huge part in wellness and disease.
Three of our Founding-Father Presidents dying on July 4th seems like more than a coincidence.

Thanks for your reply,
Indeed, I do feel lucky to be healthy too, but I also see a lot of people dig their own graves with their own forks.
They look at doctors as infallible, yet doctors learn nothing of nutrition and less of environmental toxins and nutrient deficiencies.
Healthy CHOICES are also a factor in health, and these choices can even be cheap. I’m not here to criticize doctors, but most of all to keep myself healthy and to diffuse ideas that make this possible.
I was also foolish, when I was younger and woke up about twelve years ago to the direct connection between my health and what I eat or do not eat, after I watched a dear friend die a painful death to pancreatic cancer, which I have since learned was not the death sentence that her doctors prompted her to believe.
For my eyes, I put a carrot in a daily morning smoothie, and I often eat blueberries. They work for me, though you could call it a placebo. For me, spiritual health can be a placebo.
I agree, placebos work, but you can also observe patterns of healthy eating and recoveries from illness, even in the form of books by unconventional medical doctors.
“’Anything can cause anything, and anything can cure anything’, is a good motto to live by.”
Maybe, but I prefer to subscribe to the adage that “one man’s food can be another man’s poison”, according to the ancient Roman philosopher Lucretius.
If you have found what works for you, great, but for me, coffee, sugar, dairy, beans, legumes, and potatoes would not nourish me.
“The best six doctors anywhere, and no one can deny it,
are sunshine, water, rest, and air, and exercise and diet,
These six will gladly you attend, if only you are willing.
Your ills they’ll tend. Your cares they’ll mend,
and charge you not a shilling.”
Thanks for your radio shows.
I took the liberty of adding the titles and links to your show to an RSS feed on the news page of my website.
I hope that this is acceptable to you.

“One man’s food can be another man’s poison” is good advice. And one man’s health can be another man’s illness.
There are many stories similar to the 1951 case of the boy with fish scales. The hypnotist cured him because he thought he was curing a full-body rash, but the boy had a genetic disease — he was born without sweat glands (Ichthyosis vulgaris, aka fish scale disease).
Hypnosis gave him sweat glands, and — last I heard (2015?) — he was still alive and living in San Francisco.
Once the hypnotist knew that he did “the impossible,” he could never do it again, so he abandoned hypnosis in favor of psychoanalysis.
And, by simply burning a hole in her back with a caustic zinc compound, one of my dearest friends, Judy Utley, cured herself of cancer of the spine, breasts, and lungs.
Judy’s body was riddled with cancer, and she was given a week to live, but she lived for nine years totally cancer-free.
Her doctor, who had exclaimed, “How did you even walk into my office!?!?,” was soon diagnosed with lung cancer, living only a year.
Doctors X-rayed her to a fare-thee-well every year, examining as many of her organs as possible, but couldn’t find the slightest trace of cancer anywhere.
Judy told me she wanted to live just long enough to meet her “soul mate.” She did, and they both died within months of each other.
Judy never quit smoking tobacco cigarettes.
Life inside The Matrix is filled with twists and turns and lots of surprises.
