I was first introduced to the concept of starving cancer when I read a book published by David Icke which, through the research of Dr. Tullio Simoncini, alleged that there was an association with the overgrowth of Candida bacteria in the body, and the growth and spread of cancer as a result. Further research led to the understanding that in order for candida to thrive, the body must be in an overly acidic state (which can result from eating certain types of foods) Dealing with chronic lower back pain and learning through research that inflammation is often the bodies way of fighting off infection, I decided to take heed, look at a ph food chart and change my diet.

Presentations like the one presented by William Li helps shed light on how eating specific foods can, in theory, prevent disease. Dr Li goes into detail to examine the correlation between curtailing obesity and inhibiting cancer by following a healthy diet. It’s important to note that strenuous exercise is known to have an adverse impact on the immune system. I can personally attest to experiencing noticeable results when I ate foods to proactively manipulate the ph levels in my body. From a boost in energy & metabolism to a decrease in skin blemishes and faster recovery from injury.
