Throughout the world, cancer is becoming the most feared disease. Each year, many people are diagnosed with the different types of cancer. Yes, there are different conventional cancer treatments that are widely available, however, they are always associated with harmful side effects. Due to this, many people are finding ways in which they can possibly lower their cancer risks.
Luckily there is a homemade solution that is far much better than using chemotherapy and medications for cancer management. Surprisingly, the combination of lemons and baking soda just works great. What makes this combination so special? Well, is because of the alkalinity of the solution.
Studies have confirmed that cancer cells have the ability to grow in an acidic tumor environment (low pH level) that is detrimental to other cells, including immune cells. In a report which was published in a Cancer Research cover, the Moffitt Cancer Center said that neutralizing the acidic tumor environment increases the efficacy of several immune-targeting cancer therapies. Furthermore, researchers have found sodium bicarbonate, a chemical name for baking soda, to alkalize the acidic environment surrounding the tumor thereby decreasing metastasis or the spreading of cancer cells to other parts of the body.
On the other hand, lemons as well as other citrus fruits, have different properties which can help fight and prevent cancer. Though lemons are very acidic in their natural state, once they are ingested they are proven to be alkalizing with many health benefits.
Furthermore, lemons contain limonoids which are nutritional compounds that have been found to be anti-carcinogenic. It is also rich in vitamin C, an incredible antioxidant and is being used as an alternative therapy for the treatment of certain cancers. Aside from its anti-carcinogenic properties which can help fight cysts and tumors, lemons can also work against the bacterial and fungal organism, can control parasites and worms, and work as a good anti-depressant.
Studies have proved that lemons are thousands of times more powerful than chemotherapy when it comes to fighting 12 types of cancer. As compared to a chemotherapy medication known as Adriamycin, lemons are far much better.
The combination of these two powerful remedies can help promote an alkaline state in the body, prevent cancer and support good health.
Make It Yourself Recipe
Here is how you can take the combination of lemons and baking soda:
- Baking Soda
Simply squeeze about seven ounces of juice from the lemons and mix with one teaspoon of baking soda and a glass of water.
Drinking this mixture four times a day can help balance your body pH, thus preventing cancer from further multiplying.
Along with the consumption of this mixture, you should also avoid or stay away from foods that increase your body’s level of acids, such as dairy products, meats, added sugars, and refined grains. Eat more of avocados, flax seeds, tomatoes, sprouts, spinach, broccoli, watermelon, and grapefruits. These foods are good at promoting the alkaline state of the body.
