Getting Better

According to TCM, prolong taking of coffee enema drains qi from the body. Perhaps that's why my legs feel week and energyless. So I have stopped taking coffee enema for since Sunday to give my body a change to acquire nutrient qi back. Incidentally, my legs don't feel so restless yesterday. I also took hot water foot bath with bicarb (epsom salts is not permitted in Gerson therapy). Took my supper and the went to bed just past 11pm. Well, I managed to sleep but woke up at about 2.30am.

I felt the accumulating of stomach gases and strangely, my legs feel restless again. After waking up, I took another hot water foot bath with bicarb. After that, my mother suggested that I apply Chinese Medical "Wind" oil. I went back to sleep at about 3am and was awaken by a backache this morning at about 8.30am. I am happy with the progress that I have made. I think next time I will stick to my oatmeal for supper because last night I had tomatoes noodle soup that must have caused the stomach to accumulate gas.

What Acidity pH Level Promotes Cancer?
Sometime ago, I wrote something about alkalizing your body. The normal pH of the body is 7.4-7.5 and it is said that cancer grows in an acidic environment. Do you know at what pH level will be conducive for the cancer to grow?

According to Keith Brewer, Ph.D., a pH of 6.5 would be an ideal environment for cancer cells to grow. Cell mitosis occurs in the range of 7.35 and 7.0. Mitosis is the process of multiplication of the cancer cells. Further, when the pH drops to below 7, the condition for cancer to develop begins (see diagram). As you can see, the range between the normal of 7.5 and 7.0 is only 0.5, giving a very narrow window between what is healthy and unhealthy. It's so easy to fall below 7 by taking the wrong foods.

In chemistry, alkali solutions (pH over 7.0) tend to absorb oxygen, while acids (pH under 7.0)tend to expel oxygen. Therefore, when the body becomes acidic by dropping below pH 7.0 (note:all body fluids, except for stomach and urine, are supposed to be mildly alkaline at pH 7.4), oxygen is driven out of the body thereby, according to Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg, inducing cancer. Stomach fluids must remain acidic to digest food and urine must remain acidic to remove wastes from the body. Blood is the exception. Blood must always remain at an alkaline pH 7.4 so that it can retain its oxygen.

So don't neglect to check your pH regularly using a pH strip or paper. It's a simple and very cheap tool use to monitor your health.


  1. Dear CT,i am glad you rested and thank you for the very informative article about PH levels.Will surely take note,best regards AL MAL.

  2. how long will you stop doing the coffee enema?

  3. Hi Chang,

    From your explanation, as someone also commented, we should also not maintain too high an alkaline level. There needs to be a balance between acidity and alkaline. Is that correct?

    By the way, you have not mention SSG which you revisited recently. Would you be trying out SSG?

    Hope you have ample sleep.

    Take care.

  4. Dear John,

    I will be stopping enemas for a week. After that, I will resume once a day. At the same time, I am also taking the zeolite mineral to enhance the detox.

  5. Dear Justin,

    It's never easy to change your pH naturally, contrary to what people write. If your pH is normal, then watching your food intake will continue to maintain it but if your pH is already skewed to acidity, then it takes more than food to bring it back to normal. For cancer patients, there is an urgency to bring the body back to high alkaline levels and then slowly bring it back to normal.

    I am taking the SSG for one week now but will make a review soon. I certainly did not fall into the category that after a few days' use my tumor disappeared. My tumor in my abdomen has been as solid as before. No idea what's happening in my lungs. I am experiencing a little backache now.
