Hi, I'm Irish529

How do you all go about eliminating sugars and what kind of alkaline things do you trust adding to your diet?

I started eliminating the obvious sugars – pop, cookies, ice cream, chocolate… But then I started trying to cut back on refined carbs like bread also. I didn’t stop eating fruit (natural sugars) because in moderation they have fiber and other good things, especially berries! I also decided to allow some chocolate, usually 72% dark so it’s healthy, and what’s life without a little chocolate?
I also did not do any alkalizing stuff. I did not do any research on the subject but your body will keep trying to revert back to its preferred ph anyway.

While it’s almost certainly a good idea to cut out or cut back on refined sugar in one’s diet, the title of this thread “creating a neutral pH balance in the human system” caught my eye and makes me want to add a bit to the discussion.

The idea that cancer cells thrive in an acid environment and can be killed by somehow changing one’s body chemistry has been thoroughly debunked. There’s plenty of research on the subject. A cursory search gives me these online sites:

In the interest of full disclosure, let me add that I am not a doctor. I have, however, lived through throat cancer. My doctors recommended, and I followed their advice, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. I don’t want to take hope from anyone who suffers with cancer, but I also don’t want myths guiding treatment. That’s dangerous. Talk to and be guided by your doctors on the subject.

Best,
Drew Boswell

Hi, I'm AG girl

Well since the previous post recommends following everything your doctor says considering they take about 30 minutes of nutrition study I certainly wouldn’t trust a doctor to tell me anything about nutrition
I even went to three different nutritionists
they can’t even agree on what’s healthy and what’s not and these people were in the cancer industry
And while there are studies that can be contradictory, why not try anything and everything
and oh by the way my doctor practically killed me with their medicine so it’s not for everyone
And another friend is dead from chemo
the doctors told her that her cancer was easy to cure except she was allergic to the chemo
And my father is dead also from chemo – it destroyed his heart
so we all have our own journey and must take charge of our own health
Do ur research. Do what feels right. It’s ur body and ur cancer. You will know what’s right for you!
Rant over
