Stress and Acidosis and Cancer...

Below are parts of articles I found that simply describes how stress effects our bodies and I feel that when our bodies are acidic and we eat carcinogenic foods, our kidneys dispose of these toxins into our bladder which in turn create irritations and which if the body remains in an acidic state, then develop into cancer and then with the added stress of diagnosis, it becomes in some of us, very aggressive as it did in me... On the other hand, I found that when I eliminated ALL STRESS, raised my body PH 24/7 with juicing organic green vegetables and or baking soda in water and or real lemons in water and eating raw vegetables, salads and vegetable soups, a vegan diet only, creates a high alkaline, high oxygen environment in which the cancer cells die and the body intern heals itself as it did in me but only if it's done 100%... and lastly, Pray, Pray and Pray some more, it really works...

"What is stress?
Stress is your body’s response to certain situations. Stress is a subjective; something that may be stressful for one person—speaking in public, for instance—may not be stressful for someone else. Not all stresses are “bad”; for example, graduating from college may be considered a “good” stress. Stress can affect your physical health, your mental health, and your behavior. In response to stressful stimuli, your body turns on its biological response: chemicals and hormones are released that are meant to help your body rise to the challenge. Your heart rate increases, your brain works faster and becomes razor sharp, you have a sudden burst of energy. This response is natural and basic; it’s what kept our ancestors from falling victim to hungry predatorsStress overload, however, can have harmful effects. We cannot eliminate stress from our lives, but we can learn to avoid and manage it.
Is All Stress Bad?
No, not all stress is bad. In fact, it can be healthy because it helps us avoid accidents, power through unexpected deadlines, or stay clear minded in chaotic situations. But stress is meant to be temporary. Once we’ve passed the “fight or flight” moment, our bodies should return to a natural state—heart rate slows, muscles release, breathing returns to normal. But the circumstances of chronic stress so many of us face as a result of the pressures and demands of our modern lives means our bodies may frequently be in a heightened state with our heart pumping hard and our blood vessels constricted. Over time, these physiologic demands begin to take a toll on the body. This is the unhealthy side of stress.
Types of Stress
Acute Stress
Acute stress is your body’s immediate reaction to a new challenge, event, or demand—the fight or flight response. As the pressures of a near-miss automobile accident, an argument with a family member, or a costly mistake at work sink in, your body turns on this biological response. Acute stress isn’t always caused by negative stress; it’s also the experience you have when riding a roller coaster or having a person jump out at you in a haunted house. Isolated episodes of acute stress should not have any lingering health effects. In fact, they might actually be healthy for you—as these stressful situations give your body and brain practice in developing the best response to future stressful situations.
Severe acute stress such as stress suffered as the victim of a crime or life-threatening situation can lead to mental health problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or acute stress disorder.
Chronic Stress
If acute stress isn’t resolved and begins to increase or lasts for long periods of time, it becomes chronic stress. Chronic stress can be detrimental to your health, as it can contribute to several serious diseases or health risks, such as heart disease, cancer, lung disease, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver, and suicide.
Managing Stress
The goal of stress isn’t to get rid of it completely. That would be entirely impossible. Plus, in some situations stress can be healthy. Instead, the goal of stressmanagement is to identify a person’s stressors—what it is that causes him or her the most problems, or demands the most energy—and find ways to overcome the negative stress those things normally induce."

"What is Acidosis?

Acidosis is a condition that results from a buildup of acid in the body where acid accumulates faster than your body can eliminate it. When we are overwhelmed and can't get rid of this acid, it will cause the breakdown of organs, decrease energy and body functions, and usually is the cause of many degenerative diseases, including cancer.

This condition can be caused by consistently eating acidic foods, such as sugar, carbohydrates, fats, and most all processed foods. This kind of diet coupled with long-term stress will cause an acid buildup in the body. Acidosis is dangerous, so it is very important not to add stress to the mix. It can do very real physical damage and even cause cancer.

How Acidosis Stresses the Body

Acidosis puts considerable stress on the body and its organs. Some of the ways in which acidosis causes physical stress and problems for the body, include muscle cramps and joint pain, indigestion and constipation, lower back pain, high blood pressure, depression, and reduced functioning of the immune system. These are just some of the ways in which acidosis can potentially cause harm to your health. Just a few teaspoons of sugar will suppress your immune system for 4 to 5 hours.

How you can prevent Acidosis

We know acidosis can cause great harm to your health, but it is preventable. What can you do? There are several ways to ensure better health and avoid the accompanying problems we mentioned earlier. First, make sure you are juicing and eating a healthy diet full of alkaline vegetables. I mean, your Mom was right all along. Especially dark green leafy vegetables can bring that alkaline balance we need for health. Using a water ionizer for drinking water will help restore that pH balance.

Everyone experiences some stress, but it is the chronic ongoing, day to day, stress that can damage your body and lead to acidosis. You should also do all you can to reduce any stress in your life. Exercise is a great stress reliever. Another biggie is getting enough sleep that alone, helps reduce stress. No more late night TV. It is not worth it."

Other manifestations of stress are anger and or resentment toward someone, envy, bitterness, loss of a loved one, relationship, work, money, spiritual, and social issues, just to mention a few, and cancer diagnosis for the icing on the cake…

My Story...

It all started with a slight sensation to urinate... Cancer didn't start off painful for me, but more of an uncomfortable sensation of urgency and frequency of urination that progresses ever so slightly each day, getting up once at night, then twice, then progressing to three and four and maybe more... The sensation and urgency became more continuous and frequent with a tinge of blood here and there which led me on August 22nd, 2011 to my urologist... Right before my scheduled cysto, I started urinating pure blood... The cysto let to a TURBT and three  high grade cancerous tumors were removed and biopsied...  I then went through the 6 BCG treatment standard protocol finishing my last one on October 11th 2011... Since I was now diagnosed with cancer, I sought the top oncologist at the Cleveland Clinic for treatment... Simultaneously  I then went to see a holistic doctor, Dr. Todd Pesek who helped me rebuild my immune system naturally...   I found that all non organic foods especially red dyes and processed foods were irritating my bladder and went to an all organic diet and thought I was progressing well until December 16th when I went in for a cycto, they found and biopsied 4 new and larger high grade tumors... My oncologist told my wife that I was in a dire situation and what I had was textbook and I needed a Radical Cystectomy (RC) with NeoBladder (gold glove treatment) because the BCG's in his opinion were ineffective... I totally agree with him regarding the BCG but take exception to the RC with which they wanted to remove my bladder, prostate (no more intimacy), dozens of lymph nodes and four feet of small intestine to create an incontinent neo-bladder... Basically, I would walk in as a fifty one year old, be carried out as a ninety year old and the best I could hope to recover to an eighty year old... I since then prayed more and more and did more and more and more  research... I also tested my urine at every void for microscopic blood and in doing so, discovered my PH levels in my urine were extremely low (5.0) (normal is 7.365) which I found is caused primarily by STRESS (which we can all relate to) and high acid foods and or improper diet... Cancer thrives in a low PH, low oxygen and highly acidic environment...   I  juiced and ate a  high alkaline diet consisting of all organic and  primarily green vegetables, 3 times a day and ate a lot of raw vegetables, vegetable soup, broccoli, brussel sprouts and asparagus sautéed in organic EV olive oil and garlic with sea salt(with iodine) to taste  and drank about a gallon of water with baking soda every day, plus an array of herbs, multi-vitamins and minerals... It's was difficult and has been a big sacrifice, but the alternative was to loose my bladder, go through chemo and radiation  and then not being able to eat solid foods, or even normal ever again... The worst part is that they take the "everything plus the kitchen sink" approach and take out the prostate also (ED), lymph nodes and four feet of my intestine to create a new incontinent bladder and not to mention all the potential infections and complications ect. ect. ect... My BCG treatments were ineffective and my cancer came back because I was under extreme STRESS and very upset continually which caused the acidic environment in my body for the cancer to thrive in... On the other hand, cancer cannot live in an alkaline and high oxygen environment and starts to die off which it did...The key is keeping the body 100% alkaline 24/7 until the cancer is gone...
It's over four and a half years and I still have no urgency, no frequency, no burning, no sensations, no blood and never getting up at night at all...
I thank God and keep praying for his continued wisdom, guidance and strength...

Stress causes cancer...

Food Charts

Urine test results guide
Pale to dark yellow
Many foods and medicines can affect the color of the urine. Urine with no color may be caused by long-term kidney disease or uncontrolled diabetes. Dark yellow urine can be caused by dehydration. Red urine can be caused by blood in the urine.
Cloudy urine can be caused by pus (white blood cells), blood (red blood cells), sperm, bacteria, yeast, crystals, mucus, or a parasite infection, such as trichomoniasis.
Slightly "nutty" odor
Some foods (such as asparagus), vitamins, and antibiotics (such as penicillin) can cause urine to have a different odor. A sweet, fruity odor may be caused by uncontrolled diabetes. A urinary tract infection (UTI) can cause a bad odor. Urine that smells like maple syrup can mean maple syrup urine disease, when the body cannot break down certain amino acids.
Specific gravity
A very high specific gravity means very concentrated urine, which may be caused by not drinking enough fluid, loss of too much fluid (excessive vomiting, sweating, or diarrhea), or substances (such as sugar or protein) in the urine. Very low specific gravity means dilute urine, which may be caused by drinking too much fluid, severe kidney disease, or the use of diuretics.
Some foods (such as citrus fruit and dairy products) and medicines (such as antacids) can affect urine pH. A high (alkaline) pH can be caused by severe vomiting, a kidney disease, some urinary tract infections, and asthma. A low (acidic) pH may be caused by severe lung disease (emphysema), uncontrolled diabetes, aspirinoverdose, severe diarrhea, dehydration, starvation, drinking too much alcohol, or drinking antifreeze (ethylene glycol).
Protein in the urine may mean kidney damage, an infection, cancerhigh blood pressure, diabetes,systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), orglomerulonephritis is present.
Protein in the urine may also mean that heart failureleukemia, poison (lead or mercury poisoning), or preeclampsia (if you are pregnant) is present.
Intravenous (IV) fluids can cause glucose to be in the urine. Too much glucose in the urine may be caused by uncontrolled diabetes, an adrenal glandproblem, liver damage, brain injury, certain types of poisoning, and some types of kidney diseases. Healthy pregnant women can have glucose in their urine, which is normal during pregnancy.
Ketones in the urine can mean uncontrolled diabetes, a very low-carbohydrate diet, starvation or eating disorders (such as anorexia nervosa orbulimia), alcoholism, or poisoning from drinking rubbing alcohol (isopropanol). Ketones are often found in the urine when a person does not eat (fasts) for 18 hours or longer. This may occur when a person is sick and cannot eat or vomits for several days. Low levels of ketones are sometimes found in the urine of healthy pregnant women.
Microscopic analysis
Very few or no red or white blood cells or casts are seen. No bacteria, yeast cells, parasites, or squamous cells are present. A few crystals are normally seen.
Red blood cells in the urine may be caused by kidney or bladder injury, kidney stones, a urinary tract infection (UTI), inflammation of the kidneys (glomerulonephritis), a kidney or bladder tumor, or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). White blood cells (pus) in the urine may be caused by a urinary tract infection, bladder tumor, inflammation of the kidneys, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), or inflammation in the vagina or under the foreskin of the penis.
Depending on the type, casts can mean inflammation or damage to the tiny tubes in the kidneys, poor blood supply to the kidneys, metal poisoning (such as lead or mercury), heart failure, or a bacterial infection.
Large amounts of crystals, or certain types of crystals, can mean kidney stones, damaged kidneys, or problems with metabolism. Some medicines and some types of urinary tract infections can also increase the number of crystals in urine.
Bacteria in the urine mean a urinary tract infection (UTI). Yeast cells or parasites (such as the parasite that causes trichomoniasis) can mean an infection of the urinary tract.
The presence of squamous cells may mean that the sample is not as pure as it needs to be. These cells do not mean there is a medical problem, but your doctor may ask that you give another urine sample.
