Eating a well balanced diet that includes plenty of green vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean meats, healthy fats and even a little dairy is the best way to keep the body's PH working at its best.
If it sounds familiar, this is pretty much a mediteranean sounding diet. Of course, water, reasonable excersise and relaxation techniques are the other keys. Good luck and stay active :>)

Living,,,,Also be sure to take extra Vitamin D3. for fighting cancer ....and also probiotics....which are very valuable in helping maintain the good flora in your stomach. It seems that medications and illness can disrupt the good bacteria in your stomach and colon. By taking good bacteria (not just in the yogurt), some time of probiotic capsule, you can help your digestive system get back to normal and you will feel so much better....Our doctor believes that probiotics help the immune system fight illness...You can get them at a heath food store. We take two every morning....They really work....You have to keep them in the refrigerator.....Diane

Hi Todd,

As a gout sufferer I have done some research on how to "alkalinize" the body. I tried this myself for awhile but just could not keep it up and I do not get attacks too often. The remedy was to take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 10 ounces of water before each meal. Tastes like salty water and I do not know if there is any science behind this. Try a web search for gout and you will find other resources that talk about reducing the bodies acidity.

Take care,

Go to a health food store and ask for Buffer PH or something similar. I'm on it as I tend to go acidic.


Diagnosed with a Gleason 4X3. Second opinion at Stanford came back as 3X4, 1 out of 7 samples, Left Side. DRE showed Normal. Before Biopsy Psa gradually crept to 10. Dropped to 6.4 with Alt. suppliments.

Hi selmer. Thank you for the info and the link. To be honest I sorta thought it was too good to be true. I know that there always seems to be someone out there trying to make a quick buck by preying on the misfortunes of others. People like that should be tarred and feathered. I would love to see stockades brought back just for that reason.. I would be the first in line to chuck a rotten head of cabbage at them. Still, one must believe that there is something out there that will beat PCa into submission. My p.s.a. is rising so it looks like the casodex is starting to fail. At this point I will almost try anything to to get my numbers to go back down. A caring gentleman whom I work with brought me a book entitled the cure for all cancers. This nut case was trying to say that cancer was caused by the human intestinal fluke that got loose in the body because Isapropel alcohol intolerance. I wonder how much money she made off of the book. She claimed you could cure it by using wormwood and two other things to make some witches potion. She even advocated having all the mercury amalgom fillings pulled from your teeth. I believe in detoxifying the body but I doubt it would do anything to cure cancer. Anyway, I'm at work. My last two nights of graveyard shift before I go back on permanent day shift. So I am just rambling on for lack of anything better to do. Thanks again, Todd
