We risk to suffer from serious diseases and even death, if we fail to maintain balanced pH levels in our body, since it is an essential homeostatic function. Too low or too high pH levels lead to diseases and in some cases, death. In most cases, people are in an acidic state- when their blood pH is below 7.35. This acidic state allows cancer to thrive in the body.
Increased metabolism of glucose and poor perfusion can lead to acidic external pH of a solid tumor.Namely, we to maintain normal acid-base balance in our body in order to remain in a state of health or homeostasis, and the blood needs to stay in a pH range between 7.35-7.45 in order to remain in homeostasis.
One of the prevention measure to reduce the rate of cancer is to keep normal acid-base balance-homeostasis, as it enables the body to defend itself against cancer and other diseases.
It is very important to establish your pH level in the body. In this case, you need to buy a testing kit from your local pharmacy or local health food store. These usually come in rolls and consists small set of pH balance test strips.
The one test strip is by testing your saliva and the other is your urine.
When testing your saliva, make sure you have not eaten or had drink within two hours. Wash your mouth with your own saliva, and then swallow. Make sure you keep your saliva in your mouth and then place the strip on your tongue. Afterwards, compare the results against to the color chart that goes along with your strips and establish your pH.
In case the saliva pH is too high (over 6.8), it indicates that body suffers from excess gas, constipation and production of yeast, mold and fungus. If the saliva pH is too low (below 6.5), it indicates that the body eliminated them through the urine.
On the other hand, the best time do to the urine test is in the morning after you get up. You simply just need to urinate on the strip and compare it the results with the guide on the kit. You need to pay more attention to the lower acid levels. When the average urine pH is below 6.5, it indicates on an overwhelmed buffered system and body’s fluids are too acid.
Correcting your pH
Your pH levels are influenced by various factors. More importantly, what you put into your body affects the creation of the pH level.
Unhealthy diet, a diet too high in fatty foods, contributes for our body chemistry to become too acidic which increases the risk of illness, including cancer.
The bet way to balance your pH level is to eat as clean as possible, which means to restrict yourself from processed food. Instead, consume organic foods which can reduce the number of chemicals that enter your body.
Namely, the acidic state of your body is referred to as its pH balance. It is similar to the one of a swimming pool, and if the water is with a high pH balance, it indicates that it become too alkaline and has similar effects on the human body. On the other hand, if the pH balance of a pool is low, it indicates that the water became too acidic and leads to dry itchy skin and sore, burning eyes and nose.
Proper diet is essential to restore your body’s pH to homeostasis. Therefore, it is of great importance to distinguish what foods are alkaline and what are acid.
Raw vegetables are alkaline and meats are acidic, but this does not mean that you need to completely eliminate meat and eat only raw vegetables. Instead, you simply need to consume greater portions of vegetables than meat.

He has also served in different roles as a paramedic, firefighter and educator and served in different leadership positions in the Fire Chief rank.
In 2007, his wife was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, and after numerous chemotherapy treatments, his education of acid-base balance and living in homeostasis helped him to clarify the situation of the western culture failure.
Namely, in order to protect from diseases, the body requires maintenance of normal acid-base balance. Struggling to save his wife’s life, Dr. Lindsey changed his lifestyle entirely. Unfortunately, his wife died 4 years after she was diagnosed with cancer for still living in a western culture has shown as too much for the 6 months of a holistic lifestyle.
After her death, Dr. Lindsey has dedicated himself to the homeopathic and naturopathic aspects of medicine, in order to educate others how to prevent themselves from the same devastation he encountered with his wife’s battle with cancer.
He now lives in the Tampa Bay (FL) area and continues his education in the fire and EMS industry. Moreover, he is PhD at the Global of Natural Medicine and completed his Master Herbal and Nutritional Consultant certifications.
