Sunday, January 13th, 2019


My guest, Russell M. Jaffe, M.D., Ph.D., CCN, Fellow, Health Studies Collegium is Founder and Chairman of PERQUE Integrative Health, LLC (PIH, www.PERQUE.com) a company that offers the world scientifically proven, integrative health solutions to speed the transition from sick care to healthful caring. He will speak on alkalinity/acidity in the body.

Dr. Jaffe has more than 40 years of experience contributing to molecular biology and clinical diagnostics. His focus is on functional, predictive tests and procedures designed to improve the precision of both diagnosis and of treatment outcomes and he has authored nearly 100 articles on the subject. He received his B.S., MD and Ph.D. from the Boston University School of Medicine, completed residency training in clinical chemistry at the National Institutes of Health and remained on the permanent senior staff before pursuing other interests, including starting the Health Studies Collegium think tank.

Dr. Jaffe is board certified in Clinical Pathology and in Chemical Pathology. He is the recipient of the Merck, Sharp & Dohm Excellence in Research Award, the J.D. Lane Award, and the U.S.P.H.S. Meritorious Service Award. Dr Jaffe was honored as an International Scientist of 2003 by the IBC, Oxford, England, UK for his lifetime contributions to clinical medicine, biochemistry, immunology, methodology, and integrative health policy. He is widely published and sought to explain complex subjects to any audience. Dr. Jaffe is also founder and chairman of ELISA/ACT Biotechnologies, and MAGique BioTherapeutics.

To Alkalize or Not to Alkalize-That is the Question

Friday, August 28th, 2009

In her book Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments that Work, Tanya Harter Pierce, this week’s guest, discusses whether or not to alkalize if you have cancer. She says this is an important question and in almost all cases the answer is yes. The rational for this is that most alternative practitioners agree that cancer cells thrive in an acidic body and in general, cancer patients are much more acidic than non-cancerous patients.

The primary way to maintain a normal pH level in your body is with the use of minerals from the diet. In an earlier blog I talked about the alkaline diet recommended by Edgar Cayce and how this was similar to the anti-inflammatory diet discussed by Dr Andrew Weil. It will be remembered that it is not the acidity of the foods that determines their effect in the body but how they promote alkalinity or acidity. For example, citrus fruit such as limes are acidic outside the body but promote alkalinity when broken down and processed within the body. In general, minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and others are very alkalizing to the body and many fruit and vegetables tend to be high in these alkalizing minerals. Thus, they are often recommended as a mainstay of the diet of a cancer patient. In an earlier blog when I talked about my cancer regime 33 years ago when I was given 6 months to live, my diet consisted of 75% raw fruits and vegetables and a limited amount of cooked vegetables but no sugar, meat, dairy, poultry and the other acid producing foods identified below from Tanya’s book.

Tanya discusses acid producing foods (meats, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, processed grains refined sugar, nuts and seeds, ice cream, chocolate and other similar foods) and alkaline producing foods (raw fruit and vegetables, sprouts, olive oil, goat cheese, stevia, molasses, maple sugar, green tea, miso and sauerkraut, herbs and similar foods). She continues to discuss optimum pH level and how to test for alkaline balance and how to alkaline, if needed. I suggest reading this or similar material on alkalizing because it is not only useful for individuals with cancer but also those with yeast infections and other bodily imbalances.
