Your photos are stunning and the green smoothie is awesome!!! So delicious!

Are these recipes recommended for someone going thru Chemo?

Julie October 18, 2011 at 10:51 pm

Lori, I am currently studying nutrition and learning about cancer diets- I certainly am no expert but am learning that sugar, all sugars that are sweet, real or fake are the worst thing for cancer or during treatment of cancer. Avoid it altogether and only use a little stevia- this includes all high sugar fruits as your body still recognizes the sugar- only low sugar berries are recommended if at all and in extreme moderation.. Also grains become sugars in your system so no grains- eat raw or lightly steamed veggies, and juice and blend lots of green veggies. Also all animal proteins and animal products feed cancer cells similar to sugar- avoid this too- I will send you some good book resources hopefully tomorrow. Thanks for your question, I’m happy to help the best I can.

Crazy Sexy Cancer and Crazy Sexy Diet by Chris Karr are two books I highly recommend for you to read for Chemo care. Also Chris Karr has an online support group at http://www.crazysexylife.com
Sorry it took me so long:(

I believe in and drink alkaline water daily. It brought a significant change on how I move today compared to before when I was not using alkaline water; I recently lost a kidney to cancer. Thanks to the information and reviews from different dedicated websites for wellness, they have provided me the best solution so far.

Nabila September 3, 2012 at 6:02 am

I absolutely LOVE your website! I’m in the process of changing my diet to alkaline and you have really been an inspiration.

Do you have any tips on how to deal with going to friends’ houses for dinners/birthdays? Or when traveling, like I go back home and usually stay with family abroad and let me tell you our traditional foods are nowhere near alkaline lol and I wouldn’t want to bother anyone by having to make me a different dish. Even when staying in a hotel, would you pack your own snacks and just eat at healthy restaurants?

Thanks a lot!

Charlotte September 18, 2012 at 5:10 am

I just want to say Im so glad I found this blog!
My boyfriend recently died of cancer and we were just starting to put him on an all alkaline diet, which I’m still positive would have turned things around for him, unfortunately his brain radiation therapy caused a fatal tumour bleed.

However I am continuing research on alkaline foods and this website is a great help for when I need ideas and a guide of delicious things to eat! Hopefully the world will catch on soon.
Thank you so much xx

admin September 22, 2012 at 9:20 pm

Oh Gosh Charlotte, I’m so sorry to hear your story. I wish there was more information out there about the dangers of radiation and chemo therapy. Alkalizing the body and assessing your live blood cells via microscopic analysis is the way to go from my perspective. Thank you for sharing and so glad you found us:)

admin September 22, 2012 at 9:33 pm

Nabila, I just take at least one yummy dish when I go places so I know there is always something that I can have and will love. Like guacamole and veggies or a salad. When I travel I do a Vega Smoothie mix and add water and shake for breaky or I take chia porridge and a box of almond milk iwht a few spices and some seeds and nuts and stir it altogether. For restaurants I order the delicious veggie side dishes and salad. If I can find awesome healthy restaurants it’s a total bonus, it’s getting easier and easier to do so! And do remember if you are not chronically ill you can have 20-30% acidic foods per day so a little zig and zag meaning an acidic food is okay but make the best choices you can at the time and then rebalance the next day. Good luck.

Why are lemons and limes listed on the alkaline side of the list? They are very acidic. Lemon juice is around 2 on the PH scale. Hydrochloric acid is around 1, and distilled water is 7.

Nic August 18, 2013 at 4:59 am

What do u eat 4 dinner or lunch..can u have any meat

admin August 18, 2013 at 2:18 pm

Hi Nic, animal protein from meat or dairy is highly acidic. Dairy products are also highly mucous forming thus they are not recommended. With regards to meat if you are experiencing severe symptoms it’s best to avoid it altogether as animal protein metabolization is very difficult for the body and most people eat far too much as in a 8-16 oz steaks- eek! The kidneys can only process 40-70g (1.5 – 3oz) per day max and most eat 5-7x’s this amt when you add the dairy proteins and all the excess ends up in the blood, then morphing into micro organisms that cause illness & disease. I just looked at & studied live blood cells under dark field microscopes this past week and have always measured my health status by this with an expert. The cellular damage was very apparent in carnivores from excess protein versus the vegans who had relatively clear, clean blood in the class and were also experiencing far greater health in comparison.
My transition to a vegan diet was sudden but you can also do it gradually by reducing your meat intake and skipping the dairy. I enjoy avocados, lentils, legumes, brown rice, whole grains like kamut, or seeds like millet & quinoa and use them in combination with steamed veggies and a salad. I never ever go hungry and these are very filling esp the quinoa which is a good one to start with as it is high in protein. You can choose to have soy products if you are comfortable with them but choose the least processed possible and eat with great moderation (1-2 x’s per week perhaps), but do your research. I only consume edamame which is the whole food source of the soy bean. You can find it in the freezer section either in the pod or shelled but be sure to only buy organic as most soy is GMO. Tofu is also minimally processed soy but I have never taken to it. But again, people are eating far too much of this as they replace meat and it too is causing all kinds of problems.
I also find that now that I am used to this lifestyle I can be quite satiated with just steamed veggies like broccoli and a nice big salad but this may take some getting used to -a stomach that is nicely full versus one that is a heavy full from meat.

If you choose to eat meat, perhaps 1-2x’s per week is ample and make it only take up visually 20% on your plate, filling the rest with green veggies. Choose organic and steer away from red meat and do not eat pork-it is thee worst! Do your research. Also fish is fine if you consume wild salmon or fresh water fish-no farmed fish as it is very sick and you will eat their sickness. Do your best to food combine animal protein properly and avoid eating it with starches (potatoes or grains) or fruits as it will ferment or rot in your belly and you will not benefit from either nutritionally.
I hope this helps. You will find plenty of recipes under the recipe tab. It does take time to think differently tho about meal prep but it will eventually become second nature to cook without animal products if that is your goal and ultimate health is your desire.

Shawna, it is the digested lemon that is alkalizing to the body. It is indeed acidic outside the body but very beneficial once ingested.

Soozy Smith September 1, 2013 at 5:40 am

Hi Julie and Yvonne.
Please could you give me your thoughts on drinking Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (with the ‘Mother’) as a drink to help with Arthritus, and to aid in Alkalinesing the tummy? I live in the UK and have started taking this drink 3 x daily, 10ml vinegar diluted in full glass of filtered water. Manuka honey can also be added, but I don’t bother as its a very present, very mild cider taste. I was put onto this as an affective arthritis remedy to aid with the inflammation and pain in stiff joints, by my local Heathfood Clinic.
https://www.margarethillsclinic.com/clinic-history.html
I’m currently drinking a German organic product. http://www.biona.co.uk/product-247-4.html
I understand that in the US you also have ‘Braggs’ Apple Cider Vinegar.
http://bragg.com/products/bragg-organic-apple-cider-vinegar.html

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
Many thanks and kind regards from the UK.

Hi Soozy, vinegar is full of fermented molecules that only add to the body’s acidity. You can see the growth of it all around the mother- kinda freaks me out a bit! Yeast, fungus and mold thrive in vinegars and fermented foods so I avoid them as I don’t want to have those in my body-most of us have too much in our body alreayd and are out of balance in the first place which is why we are exhibiting symptoms! Some believe in the apple cider vinegar but I am not a fan. Alkalizing with fresh whole foods and balancing your acidity to alkalinity with high hydration levels of water and greens powder is very powerful in alkalizing, flushing acids and improving arthritis with great success without the fermented foods as it assists in returning your digestion to normal and allows your own body to create it’s own bacterial balance. I highly recommend reading a little more for you own motivation to your health goal and a clear understanding of how arthritis and all diseases occur in the body and how you can reverse the effects. Dr. Robert O. Young’s book, The pH Miracle, Revised, is a wealth of information. It is also available as an audio book on the App, Audible. I have read and listened to it many times. You will be so inspired:) All the best and let me know how you make out:) Thanks for stopping by.

Fareeha Pirzada October 2, 2013 at 7:02 am

Hi I love the website and recipie are great
Can ou please tell me if organic milk eggs is still bad? Also organic honey I heard is good for you but is it very acid cause of the natural sugars
Is that the same with certain fruits?
Thanks
Fareeha

Fareeha Pirzada October 2, 2013 at 7:06 am

Can I have chicken in moderation as I feel I will be loosing protein in my diet? Also can I have humous?
I like mayonnaise which I know is a big no no can you recommend a substitute for that?
What about salmon because I heard that it has omega 3 and is good for you do I am very confused as I have read conflicting things lol

admin October 2, 2013 at 10:06 pm

Farheeha, you may think you need more protein but you’d be surprised how much there is in a diet high in vegetables-all veggies have some protein and it all adds up if you eat lots. If you feel you need more use moderation and choose turkey instead and only an organic source and only eat 4 oz at a sitting- this is the max you can metabloize at one time and only 1-2x’s week max. Skip the mayo and make a nut cream with soaked almonds, garlic, a bit of zucchini and salt and pepper a bit of water and any other seasoning or herbs. It’s deelish! Enjoy salmon but just the wild, not the farmed and only 1-2 x’s week. hope this helps:)

admin October 2, 2013 at 10:10 pm

Fareeha, thank you for stopping in:) Animal products are highly mucous forming esp the dairy. Eggs are tainted with pathogens, but organic eggs from a good source where chickens are fed well, eaten now and then are not the end of the earth-like 1x month or so. I don’t eat them but there are better sources now than there used to be a few years ago. Skip the honey, it’s sugar and sugar is a poison esp if you are ill. A treat is okay but not daily. Fruit should be a mzx of one pc a day if you are balanced, and none if you are not well.

Fareeha Pirzada October 3, 2013 at 5:51 am

Hi Julie Yvonne.
Thanks for your advice!! I eat organic eggs everyday and organic milk I have with tea….
I have a lot of fresh juices so would that be ok every other day?? I have seen some of your recipies do you have a book of your recipies
Thanks
Fareeha

Fareeha Pirzada October 3, 2013 at 5:55 am

Hi I feel I am missing out as I have heard organic stuff is good for you!! And I feel there is no taste as I am use to having a lot of curries!!!so I think my tast buds are use to spicy stuff

admin October 4, 2013 at 11:25 am

Fareeha, as long as your fresh juices are green and don’t have fruit in them. A small apple now and then in the juice is fine but less is better. If you need to spice up your organic veggies with curry then go for it! Get creative:) 20% of your meal can be curried brown rice or you can make a nice dish with lentils which are a great alkaline food:) Just always eat something raw or 1/2 your meal raw with your cooked food if you can.
