I am planning on making our diet alkaline; my colleague has advised me to do so for NF1 tumors. Actually I have been taking “Black Strap Molasses” for low iron content and I could see positive results.
Wondering what alkaline diet products really work for gaining weight and anemia
Please don’t suggest me ENSURE drink, I had noticed new tumor growth when I started drinking it.
Serious replies please
Answer: What is the Alkaline Diet?
Other names: alkaline acid diet, acid alkaline diet
An alkaline diet is a diet that emphasizes, to a varying degree, fresh fruit, vegetables, roots and tubers, nuts, and legumes.
Our blood is slightly alkaline, with a normal pH level of between 7.35 and 7.45. The theory behind the alkaline diet is that our diet should reflect this pH level (as it did in the past) and be slightly alkaline. Proponents of alkaline diets believe that a diet high in acid-producing foods is disrupts this balance and promotes the loss of essential minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, and sodium, as the body tries to restore equilibrium. This imbalance is thought to make people prone to illness.

Answer: Rabbit (Cat) man
His physical background
The Cat male's overall physical appearance bears the mark of discreteness. There is nothing about him that shocks or catches the eye - nothing, in fact, that goes counter to his natural desire to keep a low profile. The only thing remarkable is that people hardly remark this man when they pass him. On closer examination one may simply say he is mild-mannered, somewhat effeminate, with an usually, sedate behavior and a patrician, gentlemanlike demeanor - but all this cannot obviously be viewed as very distinctive characteristics.
His features are regular and rather delicate, his forehead fairly high, his nose straight and moderately long. His voice is neutral, monotonous. His small mouth and thin lips, together with his bright, searching eyes, constitute the only noticeable elements on his face.
He is generally of medium height if not somewhat short. Slender, supple, he walks briskly and nimbly, exhibiting his natural gift for dancing. Despite his firm muscles, which however tend to slacken rapidly from the age of fifty onwards, he looks more like an absent-minded professor than a manual worker and never has the aspect of an athlete or sportsman.
Meticulous to a fault with his clothing, the Cat man is always well dressed and keeps his wardrobe adequately furnished at all times even though he may hardly afford it. He prefers discreet to gaudy colors and remains resolutely on the conservative side. Slovenly-looking people offend him to the point of being regarded by him as irresponsible and untrustworthy personalities regardless of their actual moral fiber. It is highly unlikely that the native could ever be a casual hippie.
In general this type takes good care of his health, often with a tendency to overdo it a little. It would be exaggerated to call him a hypochondriac since his concern is positive, not morbid, and since he has no delusions of ailments. In order to avoid malady and preserve his physical well-being, he is always prepared to go to great lengths - for instance, he gets himself vaccinated against as many diseases as possible, keeps strictly to an advisable though draconian diet which necessarily requires many privations and sacrifices, does some daily exercise come wind or foul weather, and so on. He would never allow himself to be remiss or even take it easy when it comes to matters concerning his health. Probably as a consequence, one can notice a tendency to longevity in the highly developed male; other males of this sign are not exposed to premature death themselves.
The Cat man tends to consider himself more delicate than he really is. While it is true he tires himself rather easily and often suffers from disorders and pains in his digestive tract and abdominal region, it is no less true he recovers quickly and generally needs no other analgesic or tranquilizer than complaining when his organism goes awry.
The real threat to his equilibrium does not seem to have a somatic origin but is more likely to be of a psychological nature. If he resists germs, intoxication, overwork and the like with surprising efficiency, his inner tensions and anguishes are perfectly capable of knocking him down. An intense conflictual situation is far more harmful to him than a temporary overindulgence in alcohol or tobacco. His sensitive nervous system can be upset by any emotional disturbance of some importance, resulting in loss of appetite, indigestion, nervous constipation, insomnia, migraine, muscular contractions and other related ills.
It is as a rule easy to treat this man's miseries as he is always willing to cooperate. He scrupulously follows all the indications and recommendations dispensed by his doctor; his medicine cupboard is perfectly arranged and kept up-to-date. Given the delicate nature of his neurovegetative system, he had better avoid allopathy in general and shock treatments in particular, for they both could do him more harm than good. Homeopathy, it seems, suits him well, partly because it will not subject his organism to possible upheavals and partly because he can be relied upon to take his medicines in exact doses, at exact hours and on exact days. Acupuncture may also be of good help.
The Cat-born male always shows a keen interest in food and nutrition. He instinctively senses that these are the keys to good health. He has the reputation of being fastidious about his food - he chooses it and cooks it or has it cooked with much care, and refuses to eat dishes that fall short of the standards of his own making. Unfortunately, he tends to carry his fastidiousness too far. Living in this period of generalized pollution and overabundance, he is often frightened by prophets of doom and unscrupulous quacks into subscribing to a number of nutritional fads. He is likely to try out various self-styled dietetical cookeries, including macrobiotics, eat "natural" products to the exclusion of everything else or
