What can be done to increase the alkalinity of your body?

Nothing: This is phony physiology from a charlatan's website. Ignore this stuff. Your body maintains its ph at around 7.40 -- neither acid nor alkaline -- and anyone who tells you otherwise is simply trying to make a quick buck off gullible people who have grammar-school chemistry. ...Read more

What's the best way for me to change from acidic to alkaline environment in my body to destroy cancer cells?

What's the best way for me to change from acidic to alkaline environment in my body to destroy cancer cells?

This is a fraud: There is an enormous amount of "independent thought" that preys on the desperation and confusion of people who have or fear cancer. These folks misinterpret or make up real scientific studies to mislead others. The "acid / alkaline" business isn't one of the big-money frauds, but has nothing to do with reality. Ask a competent junior college biology teacher. ...Read more

I believe I have cytolytic vaginosis... If my vagina is too acidic does this mean the rest of my body is acidic, too? Or can it be alkaline?

I believe I have cytolytic vaginosis... If my vagina is too acidic does this mean the rest of my body is acidic, too? Or can it be alkaline?

Not your body pH: The ph of the vagina is determined by the ecology of its microflora and has nothing at all to do with the ph of the rest of your body, which you can rest assured is well-maintained around very close to 7.40. Any "pop" internet site telling you otherwise is medical fantasy. Hope you're able to find effective treatment. ...Read more

Garbage.: This is pseudoscience. Your stool varies in acidity/ alkalinity and there is no specific treatment for primary stool abnormalities. There is no benefit to colonics either. Inflammation is not caused by either acidity or alkalinity. ...Read more

11yr old son CBC shows high lymphocyte % and low MPV, low CREAT, and high Alkaline PHOS. Symptoms of fatigue, pale skin, headache, rashes- leukemia?

11yr old son CBC shows high lymphocyte % and low MPV, low CREAT, and high Alkaline PHOS. Symptoms of fatigue, pale skin, headache, rashes- leukemia?

Stop worrying: Percentages are meaningless. All that matters is absolute counts of lymphs and neutrophils. All 11 year olds have high alkaline phosphate. Mean platelet volume means nothing. Low creatinine is never a first warning. If he's not anemic and there are no abnormal cells noted, stop worrying about leukemia. The most common cause of headaches in a boy his age is needing glasses. ...Read more

If I raise the alkilinity in my body will that help tp get rid of candida? What do you think of mixing black strap molasses; baking soda & water?

If I raise the alkilinity in my body will that help tp get rid of candida?  What do you think of mixing black strap molasses; baking soda & water?

Really doubt it: You have limits of increasing alkalinity in body since your kidneys kick the alkali out in urine and lungs neutralize the rest. Unless you mean raising the alkalinity of the urine. If so, you can do that with ice tea, lots of vegetables with or without baking soda. However, I do not think this will clear candida. You have not mentioned where do you think is the candida infection in your body. ...Read more
