About the Book: Urinalysis, Alkalinity & Well-Being is Dr. Amariyo’s personal journey Walking Alongside Cancer. The book is her own exploration and study of Urinalysis, Alkalinity and its effect upon well-being. Urinalysis, Alkalinity & Well-Being looks into diet and life-style and the correlation and teachings between our body and the physical universe. She covers Acidosis and Alkalosis and the importance of balance.

This book isn’t based on facts it is based on the author’s findings in relation to her personal circumstances. She believes that we must all search our hearts and find our own way through the web of life with the understanding that what is right for one, may not be right for another.

She says:

“……...this book isn’t specifically about cancer, it is about my journey, it is about our dietary habits and about eating more alkalizing foods in order to raise our pH levels in urine in order to hopefully assist the body to live as much as possible without sickness and disease. In essence the purpose of this book is to help us all find and maintain well-being………Let us also remember that cancer doesn’t appear overnight, it has been said that cancer can take years to manifest in the body, some say 10 years before it will be evidenced in the body, others say 20 years; but if you are predisposed to cancer it is said to require less cells to mutate. So despite a healthy lifestyle, cancer was still trying to manifest in my body. This doesn’t mean that a healthy lifestyle and keeping fit makes no difference because I am sure it does. What I look at is how much worse things could have been had I not kept fit and healthy; for all I know, I may have died years ago had I not kept to a healthy lifestyle! 

Urinalysis, Alkalinity and Well-Being – Walking Alongside Cancer

Still trying to get my head around it all. There is so much to read and remember, so much to change, sometimes I feel overwhelmed with it all. I have read it a couple of times now, I read it slowly because there are things in it I need to think about. After trying everything else on offer, I thought I would give this ago. I haven’t made all the changes but I am trying and it is helping so far. I don’t find change easy. W. H

Bought this book on a whim and glad I did. It is changing my life for the better. M. C

WOW, don’t know where to start. Hard going in places, brought up lots of resistance in me because I know I need to change my diet but I don’t want to BUT I have made a start and can say I am seeing lots of positive results. The doctor is pleased with me for the changes I have made so that is good. It takes a long time to change life long habits but I am working on it. Your book is helpful, I’m not as strict as you are with food but I am seeing results and I feel a whole lot better. Jason B

Worth buying – Inspirational. A. K


Chapter One

Urinalysis, Alkalinity and Well-Being is written as part of my journey alongside cancer. I say alongside cancer because I have over the years been able to side-step cancer through healthy living and surgery prior to it becoming malignant.

I come from a family that has had various cancers over the years and based on that, the type of cancers and my limited knowledge of genetics, coupled with my personal past experience, I believe it places me at a predisposition to cancer manifesting within my body. I seem to be one of the small percentage of people that is genetically predisposed to the disease; and if I am, then I need to live my life consciously, knowing that I must take a preventative approach to life in order to try and keep cancer or any other illness for that matter at bay. On top of this, my age is now also a contributing factor to the raised possibility of having other cancers develop, cancers that are not necessarily linked to genetics.

According to (Is Cancer a Genetic Disease?, 2016) Cancer is the most common human genetic disease. The transition from a normal cell to a malignant cancer is driven by changes to a cell’s DNA, also known as mutations……Mutations can accumulate over many years before a cell becomes cancerous. This is why most types of cancer are more common in older people……Uncontrolled cell growth is the hallmark of cancer……Some individuals inherit a predisposition to certain cancers…….As a result, patients are often diagnosed with cancer at a younger age compared to those who are not predisposed and the cancer will tend to ‘run’ in the family…… Predisposing mutations often affect genes involved in DNA repair and the regulation of cell division and growth. Individuals predisposed to cancer often develop multiple tumours. In general, fewer new mutations are required for the cancer to develop than in individuals that are not predisposed. – A more detailed explanation can be found in the Supplement section.

There are possibly five cancer types in my family that come as inherited genes so I am always on the lookout for subtle changes in my body. Many would see this as a curse, I choose to see this as an opportunity for me to look deeper into my being and learn and hopefully continue to find a way through in order to help myself and others.

Although we can’t always change our environment, there are some things we can change, some things which are said to affect the development of cancer such as smoking, alcohol and our diet. Throughout my life I have always been diet conscious and always ensured that I ate what was considered to be a healthy diet. Yet, despite an active and healthy lifestyle, in 1997 aged only 35 years and after years of difficult menses, I was told I was pre-cancerous for cervical AND uterine cancer. The only thing that seemed fine were my ovaries; so I took the advice of my specialist and underwent a hysterectomy in order to remove a precancerous cervix and uterus, my uterus was riddled with precancerous polyps.

But this book isn’t specifically about cancer, it is about my journey, it is about our dietary habits and about eating more alkalizing foods in order to raise our pH levels in urine in order to hopefully, (and I say hopefully because despite all the hype and good sales talk, there is not enough clinical evidence to be able to state it as a fact), so hopefully, assist the body to live as much as possible without sickness and disease. In essence the purpose of this book is to help us all find and maintain well-being……….


………………It has been said that during pre-industrial times the ocean was said to measure a pH level of approximately 8.2 and over the years it is said to have slowly become a little less alkaline being more around 8.1 due to the uptake of carbon dioxide. This is however a small drop in alkaline level, but overtime, it could be enough of a decline to affect all living creatures in the ocean.

Ocean acidification is the ongoing decrease in the pH of the Earth’s oceans, caused by the uptake of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Seawater is slightly basic, (in this instance, basic means alkaline) and ocean acidification involves a shift towards pH-neutral conditions rather than a transition to acidic conditions. An estimated 30–40% of the carbon dioxide from human activity released into the atmosphere dissolves into oceans, rivers and lakes. To achieve chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to form carbonic acid. Some of the resulting carbonic acid molecules dissociate into a bicarbonate ion and a hydrogen ion, thus increasing ocean acidity. Between 1751 and 1996, surface ocean pH is estimated to have decreased from approximately 8.25 to 8.14, representing an increase of almost 35% in H ion concentration in the world’s oceans. Earth System Models project that, within the last decade, ocean acidity exceeded historical analogues and, in combination with other ocean biogeochemical changes, could undermine the functioning of marine ecosystems and disrupt the provision of many goods and services associated with the ocean beginning as early as 2100 – Wikipedia

The less alkaline the ocean becomes the more problematic it may be for life forms to survive and if this is true for the ocean, is it also true for us? Does it not stand to reason that just as life in the ocean may struggle and decline in numbers if the environment becomes too acidic, that we will also struggle to live, to survive and so decline in numbers if we continue to live in an acidic environment? When I say an acidic environment I am referring to the state of our physical body; our personal earth, (our body) may well be affected by the acidity of our own waters – which will be reflected in our urinalysis? If the ocean requires a pH level of 8.1 or 8.2 is there any reason why we as humans, with approximately the same percentage of water, do not require the same level of alkalinity? We have become oblivious to what we eat and to the devasting affect that our food has upon our body, mind and spirit. We no longer permit food to be our medicine, instead it has become for many, nothing more than sheer pleasure and comfort.

Welch et al (2008) states: Evidence exists that a more acidic diet is detrimental to bone health. Although more precise methods exist for measurement of acid–base balance, urine pH reflects acid–base balance and is readily measurable but has not been related to habitual dietary intake in general populations. The present study investigated the relationship between……….
