Cancer Patients Lack Potassium. Actually, most Americans don’t eat enough potassium. In a 2012 survey from the Food Surveys Research Group, your body needs about 4700 milligrams of potassium daily. Unfortunately, the average American gets only about 2640 milligrams per day. Potassium is a mineral that helps maintain a healthy fluid balance in our body. It also plays an important role in making sure our nerves and muscles work effectively.
The Research Goes WAY Back
In the 1950’s, The natural medicine pioneer, Max Gerson, MD, pioneered regarding cancer and metabolism. As a matter of fact, one of the conditions Gerson focused on was potassium deficiency. Furthermore, Gerson discovered that balanced potassium levels are vital for prevention.
In fact, according to Pub Med, 2015, potassium can help your body support healthy blood pressure levels. How? Potassium can help your body counter balance the effects of too much salt in your blood. Excess salt in the blood is a leading cause of hypertension or high blood pressure.
The Cancer Potassium Connection
While all of that sounds helpful and interesting, how can low potassium lead to cancer? The answer lies within your cells. In fact, your cells use potassium to make energy, or ATP. ATP is basically energy at the cell level. However, cancer cells do not make ATP. As a result, if you lack potassium, your normal cells cannot thrive. On the flip side, cancer cells can thrive. So, if cancer patients lack potassium, the problem only gets worse.
When stress affects the cells of your body, several things happen. First, the cell loses potassium. Second, the cell accepts more sodium. Third, the cell swells with too much water. This is called cellular edema. The result of this is that normal cells lose the ability to generate energy (ATP) in a healthy way. Afterwards, the cells are vulnerable to mutation; AKA cancer.
Signs of Potassium Deficiency
While every case is unique, and there are multiple conditions that can lead to the following symptoms, here are some signs of potassium deficiency. However, before I list them, I need to make one thing clear. If you suffer from lack of potassium, you there could be two problems. First, you may not be getting enough, or second, your body isn’t absorbing or using it properly. Here are some signs of a potassium problem. These signs include: fatigue and weakness, constipation, muscle cramps, or an irregular heartbeat. Since other serious diseases can also cause these symptoms, it’s crucial to see a qualified healthcare provider, rather than try to self-diagnose the problem.
Potassium Needs Enzymes
Potassium is known as an alkaline metal or mineral. In order for your body to use these minerals properly, it requires enzymes. Sadly, by age 40, your body can’t make enzymes like it used to. In fact, your body makes 70% less enzymes by age 40. As a result, adding potassium to your diet may not be enough. This is why I focus on enzyme nutrition. While you can get the proper nutrients in your diet, the right enzyme supplements help your body use those vital nutrients properly to support a happy and healthy lifestyle.
