Keeping the body in an alkaline state is important to keep it from harbouring certain diseases and illnesses. Disease, like cancer, can only survive in an acidic body, and so including remedies like this alkalizing lemon-soda drink can help keep these diseases at bay.
Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for his discovery of this very fact. His research, titled, The Metabolism of Tumours, showed that “…all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions: acidosis and hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Lack of oxygen and acidosis are two sides of the same coin: where you have one, you have the other.”
He then went on to state that “All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen — a rule without exception. Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”
Acidosis in the body is often caused by diets high in acid-forming foods, like animal products (meat, eggs, fish), dairy, and refined sugar. It is also caused from antibiotic overuse, alcohol and drugs, artificial sweeteners, chronic stress, lack of exercise, over-exercise, exposure to chemicals from household cleaners, computers, cell phones and microwaves, food additives and colourings, pesticides and herbicides, pollution, processed foods and shallow breathing.
This alkalizing lemon-soda drink can help re-alkalize the body. According to Dr. Loyd Jenkins of the Budwig Centre:
“If there is one thing you could do every day that would dramatically fight disease and increase your energy, consuming lemon juice combined with baking soda would be on the top of the list…Lemon in addition to being an effective internal cleanser and especially when combined with baking soda has also shown to contain anti-carcinogenic properties as it contains limonoides, which are phytochemicals found in a number of citrus fruits. Apparently the limonoides help strip off the protective layer coating the cancer cells. Lemon also has been shown to have strong anti-microbial effects, which has been tested in research exploring the idea that cancer is very much like a fungus within the body. When treating cancer as a fungus, various methods can be used and some have found that lemon and bicarbonate can help fight the fungus causing various types of cancer.”
Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is an alkaline substance that increases the pH of the blood, and when combined with lemon, creates a super cancer-fighting tonic. Baking soda helps increase the alkalinity of tumours, and inhibits their ability to spread and grow. It is so effective, that it is currently being used to treat some cancer patients.
This alkalizing lemon-soda drink is comprised of ingredients you likely have at home. Be sure to use baking soda that does NOT contain aluminum. This can usually be found at health food stores. Also, use organic lemons if you can (although regular lemons will do).
– 1 litre pure, filtered water
– 1 tbsp. pure sodium bicarbonate (not commercial baking soda as it has aluminum in it)
– juice of 1 lemon (cleaned well beforehand)
1. The night before, mix all of the ingredients together, and leave overnight.
2. In the morning, upon rising, drink 3 glasses of the mixture. Take your time, and soon it will not be hard to do.
3. Before going to bed, 2 hours after eating, drink one more glass, and then repeat the next day (with a fresh batch).
Keep in mind that this drink is not a replacement for a healthy diet, regular exercise, and appropriate sleep. Pregnant women should not consume the drink, and neither should kids under the age of 5. This drink is made with baking SODA, NOT baking POWDER. They are both incredibly different substances. Baking powder can harm your body.
The first couple days you may experience some cramping of the stomach and increased thirstiness, but this should go away within a week.
