I call my wife Honey. That feels really good! The honey I am talking about now is raw honey and it is alkaline. or at least on the cusp between alkaline and acidic. The reason I am experimenting with honey is to find an acceptable sweetner for some of the dishes I enjoy. One of […]

Xylitol: Good sweetner for Cancer Alkaline Diets? Thai Coconut Pancakes? Not sure, but after studying xylitol for a couple weeks, I picked some up at the local food cooperative. It was on sale for $5.something a pound, down from $6.something a pound. The first thing I tried it in was Thai coconut pancakes which I […]

Two of my favorite foods to eat are watermelon and lemons. Watermelon has been a positive mainstay in our household. When I lived alone the only preparation I did was cut off a slice of watermelon and have at it with a spoon. That seemed easy enough, but now that Alice has taken to slicing watermelon […]

So now what? However I did it –  through a strong alkaline diet, Budwig diet, or some sort of baking soda complement or jolt – I managed to reach my desired goal of alkalinity .  Or I had this crazy dance with cancer and I want to maintain a 60/40 or a 70/30 alkaline diet. I […]

My wife and I were talking about chocolate and laughingly hoping it was alkaline. When I first started being more aware of what I was eating because my goal was to continue on the path of an alkaline body, I was heartbroken to see chocolate on the no no side of alkaline vs acidic. Having […]

One of the questions that I have asked mySelf the last couple years is, “How do you become the person who allows a healing to take affect?” In other words, why is it that some people will undergo the same treatment for a disease as others, yet not all are ‘cured’ or ‘healed.’ What is […]

I received a letter from a reader honestly expressing their opinion about perhaps this whole baking soda, alkaline diet, and supplement thing was just a cruel hoax when it comes to those who are dancing with cancer. This is what the person had to say: Hi, Vern. I have been reading your blog and your website […]
