Here is an article my Doctor friend was working on, I helped her to put into English. I wanted to start these blogs with the basic information of TCM but I just seem to put it off so here is one I find very interesting...

 please excuse any typos!


Under weakly alkaline condition, cancerous cells will not be able to grow or even to survive.

The blood of a healthy person is weakly alkaline in nature with a pH of about 7.35 to 7.45.

Baby’s blood is weakly alkaline. As adults mature their blood becomes more acidic in nature

According to a study of 600 cancer patients, of their bodily fluid, 85% of the patients are acidic.

How to maintain the weakly alkaline nature of our body is the first step for moving far away from diseases.

Acidic physical conditions manifest themselves in:  

1. Skin without luster
2. Athlete’s foot
3. Feeling tired even with very little exercise and feeling sleepy the moment one gets on to a public bus
4. Easily out of breath going up and down stairs
5.Fat with lower stomach protruding
6. Movement slow and lethargic

Why does the body's physical condition turn acidic?  

1. Excessive intake of dairy acidic food:  

  a) meat and dairy products; eggs, beef, ham

  b) consuming too much acidic food will cause the blood to become acidic and thick, making it difficult to flow to the end of blod vessels leading to cold feet or knee, stiff shoulders and insomnia

  c) when one is young and strong, consuming a considerable quatnity of meat is appropriate, but is is more suitable for older people to have a diet which is  primarily vegetabels or small fish

2. Irregularity in the pace of life will cause the body's physical condition to become acidic:  

 a) irregularity in the pace of life will lead to mental and physical stress

 b) according to statistics, peole who sleep late are more likely to have cancer than normal persons by as much as 5 times.

 c) human beings originally lead a life with regular tempo in this world, it is not possible to store up sleep or food and not possible to change the order of living by mixing up days and nights.

 d)human organs are controlled by the autonomic nerves (system of nerves that control involuntary functions).
during the day the body is mainly controlled by sympathetic nervous activities (activated especially under conditions of stress)

In the nighttime the body is mainly controlled by the parasympathetic nerves, (acts in oppostion to the sympathetic nervous system).
If this order is disturbed and reversed, diseases will result.

3. Emotion over tensed:  

 a) Civilized society brings stresses

 b) Job related or mental stresses

 c) A person suffers mental stress.
When the stress is removed and the person relaxes, sometimes this may lead to death referred to as the syndrome of imperfect adrenal cortex funtion (adrenal cortex secretes hormones)

4.Physical Stress  

 a) before any operation it would be necessary to check totsee if the adrenal cortex does function normally. If the adrenal cortex is weak or if stress imposed by the operation exceeded the ability of adrenal cortex to cope, it could lead to death or other undersirable impacts.

 b) If it is noted the patient’s face is puffy, it would be necessary to inquire in detail the patient’s medical history and medication status, for patiens taking adrenal cortical hormone, extra care should be exercised when administering acupuncture.

 c) Stress due to physical labor or exercise in excess, whole night card games, driving etc should be avoided as much as possible

Appendix Acidity/alkalinity of commn food stuff  

1. Strongly acidid food: egg yolk, cheese, cak made with white sugar or persimmon, mullet fish eggs, dried cod

2. Mildly acidic food: ham, bacon, chicken, squid, pork, eel, beef bread, wheat, butter, horse meat

3.Weakly acidic food: white rice, peanut, beer, alcohol, oil fried tofu, sea weed, clam, octopus, catfish

4. Weakly alkaline food: red bean, radish, apple, cab
bage onion, tofu.

5. Muldy alkaline fo0d: dried radsh, soy bean, carrot, tomato, banana, orange, pumpkin, strawberry, egg white, dried plum, lemon, spinach etc.

6. Strongly alkaline food: grape, tea leaves, grape wine, kelp sprout, kelp, etc.

Especially natural green algae which contain rich quantity of chlorophyll are very good alkaline health food, but tea should not be drunk in excess and best to drink in the morning.

The Healthy Juice Drink is Highly recommended
