In 1931 Dr. Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for this important discovery. He stated, “Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is and excess of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline”.

In his work The Metabolism of Tumours Warburg demonstrated that “all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions: acidosis and hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Lack of oxygen and acidosis are two sides of the same coin: where you have one, you have the other.” “All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception. Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”

Dr. Warburg has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr. Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.


pH Balance

Alkalinity is created within the body with the presence of positive ion minerals such as sodium, potassium and calcium etc. which are critical for health and basic human function. The best way to identify a lack of these minerals is testing the bodies PH, if it is Acidic this means your body is Leaching minerals from the Liver, kidneys and bones to try to maintain an alkaline environment.

All the body's internal fluids are designed to be slightly alkaline, such as interstitial fluid, cerebrospinal and lymphatic fluid, liver bile and so on. The only exception to this is the hydrochloric acid produced by the stomach. Any time this PH Balance becomes acidic it creates an environment conducive for Bad Bacteria, Fungus, viruses and parasites leading to sickness and disease.

The problem is: While our bodies are designed to be alkaline, cells produce acid as a by-product of their normal activity.

Did you know? 99% of the time a terminally ill cancer victim is 1 thousand times more acidic then a healthy person.

Testing pH balance


Optimal pH for saliva is above 7 pH. A reading consistently lower than 6.8 is indicative of possible insufficient alkaline mineral reserves. After eating, the saliva pH should rise to 7.8 or higher.

To deviate from ideal salivary pH for an extended time invites illness. If your saliva stays between 6.8 and 7.2+ pH all day, your body is functioning within a healthy range. If the early morning salivary pH remains above 6.8, people usually see many of their problems disappearing.



The pH of the urine indicates how the body is working to maintain the proper pH of the blood. The pH of urine indicates the efforts of the body via the kidneys, adrenals, lungs and gonads to regulate body pH balance through the buffer salts and hormones.

Urine can provide a fairly accurate picture of body chemistry, because the kidneys filter out the buffer salts of pH regulation and provide values based on what the body is eliminating. Urine pH can vary from around 4.5 to 9.0 for its extremes, but the ideal range is 6.5 to 7.0+. Urinary pH tends to be lower in the morning and higher in the evening.

Alkaline Food List - the complete list from A-Z

Our alkaline foods list is a complete reference list of foods and their effect on pH levels after you've digested them. We have complied it from the various alkaline books available in our store and believe it to be the most comprehensive list available.

The ‘alkaline acid food chart’ indicates which foods have an alkalising effect on your body and which foods have an acidifying effect on the body. It is simple to use, you merely look up a food and it will indicate whether it is ‘acid-forming’ or ‘alkaline-forming’ within the body. For good health, try to eat 80% of your food from the alkalising list and 20% from the acidifying list.
