Blood pH and stress

Stress can cause physical damage by increasing blood alkalinity

Eminent cancer researcher and author Prof. Gyula de Szilvay proved that emotional and psychological distress such as depression, worries, sorrow, grief, and fear will substantially shift the blood pH towards greater alkalinity which in turn will lead to serious physical damage (at least in rabbits but likely in humans as well).[1]

In one experiment carried out between 28 November 1957 and 3 February 1958, Prof. de Szilvay kept twelve rabits under stressful conditions. They all received the same diet but one half of the stressed rabbits (which served as the control group) additionally received a daily ration of 1 g potassium chloride and 0.5 g ammonium chloride (substances which normalize the concentration of hydrogen ions in the blood, i.e. the pH of the blood).

When at the end of the test period the animals were dissected, the organs of the control group — liver, stomach, adrenals, heart — were found to be virtually unchanged.

The organs of the unsupplemented group however whose blood pH had become more alkaline showed serious damage incl. necrotic lesions (living tissue that had died) in the adrenals, stomach ulcers, cirrhosis of the liver etc.

Why is this important for cancer patients?

Blood pH in cancer patients tends to be too alkaline (the more advanced the state, the higher the pH) while tissue pH tends to be too acidic. More under Does alkalinity heal cancer?.
