You might want to sit down for this one.
Dr. Leonard Coldwell is the author of 19 bestselling books, including The Only Answer to Cancer and The Only Answer to Surviving Your Illness and Your Doctor. According to his website, he single-handedly cured his own mother of Hepatitis C, liver cirrhosis and liver cancer, after she was given a prognosis of only six months to live.
His website claims that he as cured over 35,000 cancer patients to date, with a 92.3% cancer cure rate. He is a naturopathic doctorwho also works as a motivational speaker.
Now that the intro is out of the way…
Dr. Coldwell believes that cancer can be cured by changing one’s diet. He urges people to eliminate processed foods, new foods (“if it wasn’t food one hundred years ago, don’t consider it food today), dead foods (“if you put a food in the ground and it won’t grow, don’t put it in your body”), and sugar. He explains that eating high quality food at the right times and practicing food combining will create the perfect diet to remove stress from the body and overcome a cancer diagnosis.
According to Dr. Coldwell, any cancer can be cured in a matter of weeks or months. He believes that tackling the acidity of the toxic elements in the body is the first step to killing cancer cells and ridding the body of the disease. This can be done by eating vegetables, which provide the body with oxygen, and eating other appropriate foods. Dr. Coldwell practices on the theory that the cancer cannot progress once the body is alkalized. To become alkaline, the body has to achieve a pH level of 7, which is the median neutral level.
How can the body become alkaline?
Cancer cells have a narrow pH tolerance of between 6.5 and 7.5. By interfering with cancer cell metabolism, Dr. Coldwell believes that cancer progression can be stopped. This is often referred to as pH therapy. To treat a cancer patient with pH therapy, the body’s pH level is normalized, and the pH of cancer cells is increased to a range above 7.5, where they can no longer function.
This is why Dr. Coldwell stands behind an alkaline diet, which is primarily eating plant-based foods, while avoiding sugar, dairy, wheat and other high-gluten grains, and emphasizing fresh vegetables and vegetable juices. This diet can help change the body’s pH to come close to its goal of 7, bringing it to an alkaline state.
In 1931, Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for his work on the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells. He found that by changing the pH of cancer cells to alkaline, they die off, as they need an acidic, anaerobic environment to thrive. Dr. Coldwell agrees with his research and suggests his own methods based on the fact that cancer cells will die if they can be forced into an alkaline, oxygenated state. His methods have worked for his mother — and according to his website — for over 35,000 others who have been diagnosed with different types of cancer.
