In 1931 Dr Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for Medicine. He discovered that an acidic tissue and a lack of oxygen in the cell causes cancer. This information has since been suppressed but is now coming out.
Before you get to cancer you get disease. It can be in many forms. What we are all missing is that you need an alkaline diet or you will be sick.
Apple Cider Vinegar is alkaline and those who take it unknowingly are actually making their body more alkaline and thus get better. The saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" was correct. Apples are alkaline and thus keep our body disease free!!
Here is an excellent website of what foods make the body more alkaline. We should all incorporate these into our diet every day for health.
This from the website:
See the following table to determine your (pH) level of acidity. Table categories show beginning, intermediate, and advanced symptoms. This is only a partial list.
~ Cold Hands & Feet
~ Food Allergies
~ Hard to get up in the morning
~ Lack of Sex Drive
~ Mild Headaches
~ Panic Attacks
~ Rapid Panting Breath
~ Cold Sores
~ Excessive Hair Loss
~ Fungal Infections
~ Migraine Headaches
~ Numbness & Tingling
~ Urinary Infection
~ Cancer (All Forms)
~ Crohn's Disease
~ Hodgkin's Disease
~ Learning Disabled~ Leukemia
~ Multiple Sclerosis
Go the website. Excellent info on what foods to eat and what foods to avoid. I am printing this list out and it will be my bible! Interesting our water is acidic so adding the bicarb soda to it makes it more alkaline.

has/does anyone follow their blood type diet? I would GREATLY appreciate hearing of others thoughts or results. It gets so confusing when you read in some books that is the best way to balance acid and alkaline diet. Thank you

I have recently read extensively about the Dr. Budwig Diet. This protocol can be found online, and entails the mixture of flax seed oil with cottage cheese or yoghut. The details matter, so look it up, if interested in eating it.
What I found was astonishing.
With this omega-3 combo in the body, one can then tolerate sunshine, and in fact, can convert the sunshine itself, within the body, into life energy for bodily processes. It allows the body to begin healing directly from the sun on the body! Light as healer, and as sustenance.
Are you as blown-away by this as I am? --T.
This totally natural cure has worked for me, twice. I think it will work for others too, maybe not everybody but at least some. It is so simple, costs absolutely nothing, gives you back your health, your vitality and libido, your sense of smell and helps you to control your weight all at the same time. It gives you back your life.
In one sentence, all you have to do is cut out as much sugar from your diet as possible. The more sugar that is cut out, the faster the healing. It is that simple. I cut out the sugar, cured myself but lost a bit more weight than I wanted to. Having declared myself cured, reintroduced sugar to my diet to help put weight back on, which I did, but the polyps came back too. I am currently off the sugar again, polyps have gone again. Twice cured with the same reasoning is enough proof for me that this works.
I did not want to have a medical operation and went looking for a natural cure. I turned Net Detective and researched nearly every website on nasal polyps to gather clues to form a theory. I have absolutely no medical qualifications whatsoever and the theory I am about to outline is just that, my own personal theory. Here we go.
The root cause of nasal polyps is not bacterial, it's fungal. The prime suspect is Candida Albicans, which everyone has to some degree. The good bacteria in your body assist to control bad fungus. Which is why antibiotics don't work because by killing all the bacteria in your body, including the good bacteria, there are none left to control the fungus.
Fungus are extremely clever little critters. They feed on sugar and produce Ethanol as a waste product. The Ethanol confuses the receptors for the Thyroid which tell it to shut down production of Vitamin D. A Vitamin D deficiency weakens the immune system and causes lethargy. Lethargy increases cravings to eat more sugar for an instant energy boost and the condition then compounds as the fungus population grows and prospers.
But wait, there's more. A white blood cell called an Eosinophil goes in to battle the fungus but with a weakened immune system, they fail dismally to win the fight. It seems they act like suicidal cluster bombs - they go to the foe and blow themselves up to take out as many of the foe as they can. When this happens in the nose, they irritate the nose membrane, the cells in the membrane fill with fluid and voila, there they are, a medical case of nasal polyps.
Operations to remove polyps, nasal sprays, potions, lotions and nasal rinses only remove the symptoms temporarily and they are not cures. The cure therefore, is to break the cycle by removing the food supply to the fungus, which is sugar. Ethanol levels thereby diminish, the Thyroid receptors kick start the Thyroid into production of Vitamin D again, which then improves the immune system which then assists the attack of the Eosinophils to win the battle of the nose.
Okay, so that's my theory. I'll admit it may not necessarily be entirely accurate in the finer details but having said that, the one thing I am sure about is that reducing sugar in my diet has eliminated my polyps. I haven't discussed my theory with my doctor, fearful of being either laughed out of his office for being ridiculous, or being thrown out for being too close to the truth and cutting out a source of his wages, and the wages of his expensive Ear Nose Throat Specialist mate who gave me useless antibiotics.
It is impossible to remove all sugar as nearly all foods have it to some extent. Just try to reduce it as much as possible so at least there is no excess for the fungus to frenzily feed on. An obvious deletion from the diet is white sugar added to coffee and on cereal - don't add sugar to anything, totally delete that option including any and all sugar substitutes. Also cut out completely ice cream, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, lollies, honey and fizzy drinks. Even fruit - I have exchanged apples and bananas for raw tomatoes. On packaged foods and drinks, I won't buy anything with more than 10% sugar content. There is usually a per 100g contents list on the package, just look at the sugar level and if it's more than 10g per 100g, don't eat it. The preference though is for levels below the 5% mark because the more sugar that gets deleted, the faster the healing.
From going no sugar, the time taken to full recovery for me on both occasions has been about 4 weeks, with every passing day getting better and better. As an added bonus, you can save a fortune on tissue paper let alone the costs of sprays, potions, lotions and the big one, the operation.
I lost weight dramatically the first time but not this second time. At a guess my metabolism has adjusted to derive more nutrients from real foods rather than depend on sugar. My diet now is fresh meat (never packaged), poultry, fish, bacon and eggs, vegetables (including fried potato chips), milk, bread, nuts (especially almonds), pizza, strawberries and cream. Even beer is okay. It's a bit like a caveman diet, but with benefits.
To conclude this post, as a suggestion, if anyone is willing to take my "no sugar" theory up, from the day of their decision, to start a daily diary and keep a record of least their weight and a degree of difficulty from 1 to 10 to breathe through the nose during the day and also the night before (1 would be very easily the nose, 10 would be mouth only). Count tissues used if you can, that would be a fun number. Some feedback would be nice as this is the first time I have shared this idea on the internet. Good luck.

Hi, Now it is a fact that GMO foods (Genetically Modified Organism Foods) causes many of the modern illness like Auto Immune, Leaky Gut, Cancer, mind fog, depression
To the surprise people who are suffering from chronic ailments, find immediate dissappearance of most of the symptoms when completely stopping GMO foods from their diet.
And in north america most of the foods are GMO. So far we have been eating only GMO foods. To eliminate GMO we have to go to truly organic foods which is very costly at least 4 times.
Is there a way to counter the side effects consumed GMO foods? My 2 cents, is to take lots of Milk Kefir and other probiotic foods.
I expect some golden recommendations from fellow contributors.

Eliminate all or most these from your diet or at least ingest in moderation: Artificial sweeteners, coffee and black tea, processed foods, luncheon meats, wheat flour, ready to eat breakfast cereals (make your own oatmeal or use other grains in the slow cooker and add fruit and honey). Keep your sugar to a minimum but when you do sweeten, try honey, maple syrup, or Stevia if you want no- calorie. Eat plenty of fresh fruits & veggies. Stick to beans, roots, and non-wheat grains for your carbohydrate needs like yams, potatoes, brown rice, lentils, bulgur, lima, navy & soy beans. Eat high quality proteins such as raw unsalted nuts, hummus, fresh fish and shellfish, chicken or turkey breast sparingly. Soy and almond milk are preferable to dairy products. Fats are not your enemies if you stick to the good oils such as olive, coconut, sesame or flax. Make sure you stay hydrated as this is VERY important to all around good health and controlling your hunger cravings. I know all this is easier said than done but if you stick with it for the first few days, you will find a large portion of your cravings become managable. Good luck and good health to all of you.
Lisa from Thousand Oaks: If you are still reading these posts, I'd love to know how you are doing with your healthy diet now? Did it help further? Are you still incorporating cooked veggies or anything else? Anything else you have noticed along the way?
Thanks so much!
1. Has anyone used the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) for Crohn's?
2. Has anyone used David Klein's Natural Hygiene diet for Crohn's?
If so, what is your feedback?
The place to begin any nutrition program is improving mitochondrial function. Sod, catalayse, and glutathione are complex antioxidants produced in the mitochondria from simple nutrients. When people are low in these free radicals make holes in the wall. This is a major cause of chronic fatigue and degenerative illnesses. This is like a blown head gasket because the mitochondria is the engine where fuel is burned and energy produced. Trace minerals increase sod and catalayse. Raw whey increases glutathione. Absorbable colostrum has glycophospholipids that repair the cellular wall. Google improving mitochondria function for more info.
I stopped eating meat for 3 years because someone told me that eating meat might be unhealthy. After 2 years I began having health problems such as insomnia and while at the supermarket I felt very weak like I was going to faint. After 3 years of not eating mean I was so weak at times that I decided to buy some steak as I was ready to try anything to stop my weakness. Also my sister in law's doctor told her that red meat helps one heal. So I bought a steak and ate steak for about 4 days. Not a whole lot of meat but a small portion at each meal. I then started eating ground beef as a store in my town is known for having great fresh meat and I can digest ground beef easier than steak. I no longer feel weak and I am sleeping like a baby again. I don't know if this will help others but it helped me to eat meat a few times a week. I am back to normal.

Have read three books recently that have proposed an astonishingly obvious idea. Native peoples, when not eating the Western or European diet at all, experienced incredible health, immunity, and vitality.
Once they began to eat the white man's foods, they soon progressively became very ill, even faster than the white man. Things like canned goods, white flour, sugar, denatured foods destroyed their immunity to disease. Something to consider here and now. It wasn't the lack of immunity to civilized man's diseases that killed them, as we are told. It was the loss of immunity which arose from straying from their protective native diet that left them vulnerable to such diseases-- for which they then had no immunity whatsoever.
Native diets were simple, often wild, raw foods, like treenuts and berries (hey, fruits & nuts, like CA), raw milk, wild game and fish, roots and greens, grasses, and some cultivated crops, grains, and livestock. Real foods like mother's milk, blackberries, squash, oats, acorns, chestnuts --all exerted substantial protective qualities on these indigenous peoples who ate them.
These studies went back as far as the 1500's, and said that these peoples knew extraordinary strength, stamina, health and immunity, great old age, total ease at giving birth, and their teeth were like porcelain, set in wide dental arches (like wider pelvises).
The soil minerals came through the plant foods, and green live grasses, the best way to get them --where they don't calcify the arteries. Maybe we could amend our soils to achieve such super foods again? Just by adding compost, mulch, worms and trace minerals? Just a thought.
