    Ah yes, the infamous "Dr." Simoncini who makes money convincing people that cancer is a fungus and baking soda cures it.

    The only thing more dangerous than a closed mind is one that is open to quackery such as this.

    This might be harmless quackery if it weren't for the fact that his "treatments" kill people.

    Early Success correcting extremely low 5.0 sickly urine PH !
    This was 100 times more acidic than normal.

    Top 12 Ways to Make your Body More Alkaline
    Acidity has been linked to pain, excess weight and many other health issues. Fortunately, making your body more alkaline (the opposite of acidic) is easy. Here are 12 ways to alkalize your body for more energy and vitality:

    1. Start your day with a large glass of water with the juice of a whole, freshly-squeezed lemon. While lemons may seem acidic, they have the opposite effect on your body as it metabolizes them.
    2. Eat a large green salad tossed in lemon juice and olive oil. Greens are among the best sources of alkaline minerals, like calcium.
    3. Snack on raw, unsalted almonds. Almonds are packed with natural alkaline minerals like calcium and magnesium, which help to balance out acidity while balancing blood sugar.
    4. Drink an almond milk and berry smoothie with added green powder like spirulina, chlorella, or other greens. Choose almond milk over cow’s milk, since the latter is acid-forming.
    5. Go for a brisk walk or some other exercise. Exercise helps move acidic waste products so your body can better eliminate them.
    6. Breathe deeply. Ideally, choose a spot that has fresh, oxygen-rich air. And, sorry Febreze, Glade, and all the other so-called “air fresheners”: air filled with these scents is not what I’m talking about here.
    7. Go meat-free for a day. (Just ONE day) During the metabolism of meat, there is an acid residue left behind.
    8. Skip the sugar-laden dessert or soda. Sugar is one of the most acidic foods we consume. You need over 30 glasses of neutral water just to neutralize the acidity of ONE can of soda.
    9. Add more veggies to your diet. No, potatoes don’t count. But sweet potatoes are a good choice (provided you’re not slathering them in sweeteners or butter). Asparagus, squash, peppers, and other vegetables are also excellent choices.
    10. Sprout it out. Add more sprouts to your daily diet. They are extremely alkalizing and supercharged with nutrients and energy-boosting enzymes.
    11. Add cinnamon, ginger, and other herbs and spices. Cinnamon is a wonderful alkalizing spice that you can add to just about anything. It’s great with sweet potatoes, apples, or sprinkled in hot tea. Ginger root is also a great alkalizer and detoxifier that spices up many dishes and makes a tasty, warming winter tea. Experiment with the spices in your cabinet — herbs and spices don’t just make things taste better, in most cases they’re good for your health.
    12. Monitor your Urinary pH. Tracking your first morning urine pH (after at least 6 hours of sleep) is a simple and convenient way to know how your nutritional changes are affecting your body. When this number is between 6.5 (slightly acidic) and 7.5 (slightly alkaline), it suggests that your overall cellular pH is where it should be — slightly alkaline. Results in an acid range can suggest that your bones are being depleted of minerals to offset the excess acid in your system.

    Just a few things made a huge difference.
    1) No more drinking coffee all day & in the night. Replaced with distilled water, and just 1 cup of Java in the morning.
    2) Bacon & Eggs Breakfast replaced with a smoothy made with almond milk, Spirulina & fruits.

    Now my urine tests a perfect 7.2 all day. YAY! I'll monitor my PH for a few days to make sure the good news stays on track, then monitor it just once a week.

    Dr. Sircus discusses the importance of urine PH levels:
    Sodium Bicarbonate and pH Medicine - YouTube

    Fruits and [uncooked] vegetables rich in vitamin C support your body’s natural, slightly alkaline pH by contributing alkalizing substances when digested. Some of the foods highest in vitamin C -- including cantaloupe melon, watermelon, kiwi fruit, citrus fruits, mango, papaya, strawberries, broccoli, parsley, bell peppers, cabbage, sweet potatoes and winter squash -- are among the top most alkaline-forming foods.

    I'm sure there are plenty of vegetarians on this board. Who are YOU to tell them they are wrong. Are you going to insult Mark for this post?

    You are missing the entire point. Balancing PH is not a vegan diet. It is a diet based on balancing PH which includes a healthy selection of meat, veggies, fruits to maintain a healthy balance.

    ACID-ALKALINE BALANCE
    Edgar Cayce frequently emphasized the importance of maintaining a proper acid-alkaline balance by eating mostly alkaline forming foods. A comprehensive list of foods is included in this section. The following summary will give you a quick overview of acid and alkaline-forming foods.

    Alkaline-Forming Foods (80% of the daily diet should contain these foods):

    All vegetables except dried beans, lentils, asparagus tips, and garbanzos.
    All fresh fruits except cranberries, plums, olives, prunes, and blueberries (preserves and canned fruits are usually acid-forming).
    Almonds, chestnuts, Brazil nuts, and hazelnuts.

    Acid-Forming Foods (20 % of the daily diet should contain these foods):

    All meats except beef juice and bone meal.
    All grains, cereals, and bakery products except for soybeans.
    All dairy except buttermilk, yogurt, raw milk and whey.
    Peanuts, pecans, and walnuts.


    FOOD COMBINATIONS TO AVOID
    Certain food combinations are difficult to digest and may cause problems in the digestive system. Here is a brief list of food combinations to avoid:

    Two or more starchy foods at the same meal.
    Sugary foods and starchy foods.
    Milk and citrus fruit or juice.
    Cereals and citrus fruit or juice.
    Large quantities of starchy foods with meat or cheese.
    Coffee with milk or cream.
    Raw apples with other foods.

    The whole theory that animal based foods are "acidic" has been spouted as vegan propaganda for years. Never has been true.

    Are you calling Mark a LIAR?

    Mark Sisson wrote this article in his Blog

    Why You Should Eat Leafy Greens
    arugulaBy now, you’ve probably seen the TedX video from Dr. Terry Wahls, a former Tae Kwon Do champ and current MD diagnosed with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (the kind that degenerates your brain and has you relying on a wheelchair to get around) who describes her transformative experience with a dairy-free Paleo diet rich in fruits, vegetables, grass-fed meat and organs, and seaweed. Relegated to and totally dependent on a wheelchair in 2007, by 2008 Wahls had adopted the diet and was commuting to work on a bicycle and now incorporates this kind of intensive directed nutrition into her primary care and brain injury clinics. If you haven’t, go ahead and take twenty minutes out of your day to go watch it. It’s a real eye-opener (but not all that surprising to longtime readers). Think of it as a grass-fed, wild-caught success story.


    I already linked to this video a couple months back, so why bring it up again, you might ask? Back when I watched it for the first time, something caught my ear: the focus on vegetation. Wahls speaks of eating nine cups of plants every day, with three coming as leafy greens, three as sulfur-rich vegetables, and three as brightly colored fruits and vegetables. She explains why each category is so important, not just for someone looking to reverse MS, but for anyone who wants to be healthier in general. She got me excited all over again about incorporating more vegetation into my diet. It’s not like it’s lacking or anything, either. I had just taken it for granted – some spinach here, a Big Ass Salad there, some roasted Brussels sprouts for dinner – and instead focused on the animal food. If you remember, the base of the old Primal Blueprint food pyramid was vegetation, and I still maintain that the optimal Primal plate is overflowing with mineral-and-antioxidant-rich plant matter. I think the (understandable) tendency of some to knee-jerkily rebel against anything resembling Conventional Wisdom means that leafy greens and other vegetables fall to the wayside. That’s a mistake, I think, and it’s important to understand that eating both loads of leafy green things and things that crawled, flew, or swam is not mutually exclusive. You can do both. You should eat both. And I’m going to tell you why.

    Before I start, when we talk about greens, we mean leaves. So things like:

    Kale
    Chard
    Lettuce
    Mustard
    Collards
    Parsley
    Spinach
    Beet greens
    Sweet potato leaves
    Arugula
    Baby greens
    Endive
    I haven’t covered all the regional leaves utilized in various cuisines across the world. These are the basics that most people reading this will be able to find at their grocer, farmers’ market, farm stand, and/or frozen section. Other vegetables like broccoli or certain types of cauliflower are green, but aren’t “greens.” A discussion on those guys will come next week.

    Terry Wahls likes greens for the minerals and vitamin content. With that, I agree. Greens represent a convenient, essentially non-caloric, nutrient-dense source of otherwise hard to obtain minerals, like magnesium, calcium, potassium, and manganese. Heh, so what have those minerals done for me lately, you might be wondering. Well…

    Magnesium

    Of all the minerals we Primal folks talk up, magnesium may very well be the most widely supplemented. It’s certainly one of the most important; over 300 physiological processes in the human body require magnesium to function optimally, foremost among them the production of ATP for energy. Your mitochondria use magnesium to produce ATP, the body’s energy currency. So if it’s so important, why must we all supplement? How did people get enough magnesium before Natural Calm? There are a few factors, including the disappearance of magnesium from our drinking water and top soil, but the fact remains that most of us aren’t even trying to get enough magnesium through our food. That should change. Eating greens like spinach and chard will go a long way toward adding dietary magnesium.

    Calcium

    Of all the minerals we discuss, calcium may be the least-supplemented or most-ignored. That’s a mistake. While I’ve certainly called into question the wisdom of supplementing with handfuls of calcium pills without considering the roles of vitamins D and K2 in bone mineralization, we still need calcium. We still need that raw building block (and crucial trigger for neurotransmitter release). And if you’re not eating dairy, leafy greens are probably your best source.

    Potassium

    Potassium is another nutrient a lot of people miss out on, especially if they’re overcooking their meat (the juices contain the potassium), avoiding tubers and fruits (both are high in potassium), and shying away from avocados because of the linoleic acid (don’t stress out over a little whole-food omega-6, folks, especially when it comes in such a creamy, green package). I just got done writing about the importance of the potassium:sodium ratio in regulating blood pressure, so if you’re not eating the aforementioned potassium-rich items (and even if you are), be sure to eat your greens.

    Manganese

    Your mitochondria use manganese to manufacture manganese superoxide dismutase, a potent mitochondrial antioxidant. With inadequate superoxide dismutase, you increase your chances of ischemic brain injury (think stroke) or developing a neuropathology. Simply put, manganese keeps your mitochondria running cleanly.

    Unless you’re eating bones, drinking blood/meat juice, and eating hoof, fur, and tail, you’ll be missing out on magnesium, potassium, and calcium by excluding leafy greens.

    Terry Wahls also likes greens for their vitamin content, specifically B-vitamins like folate. I tend to agree, and I’ll highlight a couple key nutrients that greens provide.

    Folate

    Though it’s widely touted as particularly crucial for expectant mothers and the development of the babies they bear, folate is also important for anyone’s general health. Inadequate dietary folate intake can lead to elevated homocysteine levels (which can impair endothelial function and is a risk factor for heart disease). Modern processed grain-based foods are usually fortified with folic acid, but you’re not eating that stuff. And unless you’re also eating plenty of liver, if you shun greens you are most likely lacking this vital nutrient.

    Betaine

    Betaine is another important but oft-ignored nutrient that many people, even Primal eaters, lack. Like folate, it regulates proper homocysteine levels. Betaine also helps maintain liver health. Spinach is perhaps the greatest vegetable source of betaine (other than maybe wheat germ, but who wants that?). Spinach tastes pretty darn great steamed and tossed with olive oil, sauteed in bacon fat, or raw on a salad, so go ahead and eat some.

    Besides the micronutrient content, there are other benefits of eating leafy things, especially in concert with the other foods on your plate. For those interested in eating less or losing weight, eating a salad with your meal spontaneously reduces overall caloric intake. I dunno about you, but I think any weight loss “diet” should include spontaneous caloric reduction. Although we know that caloric intake factors into weight loss or gain, we also know that many, if not most, people have difficulty consciously reducing calories. It simply doesn’t work very well, so the key is to spontaneously reduce calories by eating satisfying foods that don’t derange our satiety hormones. That’s what going Primal is all about, and research shows that eating salad (perhaps a Big Ass Salad?) can help in that regard.

    Although I’m coming up dry right now, I remember reading research that showed eating leafy greens, like spinach or kale or a green salad, alongside your grilled steak reduced the absorption of heterocyclic amines (HCAs) from the meal. HCAs are carcinogenic and form with high-heat cooking, especially on meat, and absorbing fewer of them is a good thing. I’d be much obliged if anyone could pull up the research. In the meantime, I’ll keep looking.

    But the real beauty of leafy greens? They are prepackaged whole food “supplements” with safe and well-balanced vitamin and mineral levels. You eat a few cups of spinach, a romaine lettuce salad, maybe some kale chips and you’ll be getting a nice healthy range of nutrients. Your overall caloric intake won’t really be impacted and you’ll be safe. No, you won’t have a nutritional profile from the manufacturer telling you exactly how many milligrams of magnesium your bowl of sauteed kale contained, or the amount of betaine in that head of spinach you chopped up and turned into a salad. The nutrient range will vary from head to head and leaf to leaf. And that’s okay. Heck, that might even be optimal. I can imagine an organism that evolved eating a varied diet with lots of ups and downs and big blocks of this mineral in one meal and another big block of that vitamin in the next. I can imagine an organism that evolved eating food, rather than prepackaged, preordained, pre-meted out collections of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Can you?

    If it’s green, leafy, crisp, and free of chemicals, it’s safe, healthy, and good to eat. Adding such a food to your diet – in sauteed, steamed, boiled, dehydrated, baked, or raw form – will most likely help, so eat it! I’m not saying you have to eat three heaping platefuls of vegetation, like Terry Wahls did. I’m suggesting that adding leafy greens to a diet lacking in them will almost certainly improve the nutritional content of that diet.

    Calm down. Eat your veggies, nobody ever said not to but understand that this diet is and always has been promoted and championed by vegetarians. If you get that fact then maybe you will see through the nonsense.

    Grizz:

    Another thing, different parts of your body require different levels of pH, it seems strange to try to make yourself 'more alkaline' because you'd just be counter balancing another part of the body. pH can fluctuate throughout the day at different levels in different areas of the body. Your stomach is so acidic that you can't even significantly change the acidity of your stomach, much less your blood. It's what helps you to break down food anyway. Besides that, some foods that are claimed to be acidic, leave an alkaline ash after digestion, so what's the deal here?

    One thing I've noticed being touted is that cancer cells can't live in an alkaline environment, but, neither can any other cell.
    Certain food combinations are difficult to digest and may cause problems in the digestive system. Here is a brief list of food combinations to avoid:

    Two or more starchy foods at the same meal.
    Sugary foods and starchy foods.
    Milk and citrus fruit or juice.
    Cereals and citrus fruit or juice.
    Large quantities of starchy foods with meat or cheese.
    Coffee with milk or cream.
    Raw apples with other foods.
    Why?

    Choose almond milk over cow’s milk, since the latter is acid-forming
    Why? Calcium is an alkalizing mineral, phosphorus is acidifying.

    All meats except beef juice and bone meal
    Why? How do you explain the fact that organ meats(and probably all meats) such as beef liver leave behind an alkaline ash? Is this because: Your stomach is so acidic that you can't even significantly change the acidity of your stomach, much less your blood.

    pls respond.
