What Causes Cancer, Heart Attacks, Strokes, Diabetes, MS, Lupus, Dementia, AIDS, ALS, Hepatitis, and the list goes on and on and on? A rise in the alkalinity of the blood above pH 7.365 (alkaline phosphate)–any rise–is a result or a compensatory reaction due to over-acidity in body tissues (latent tissueacidosis) as the blood attempts to maintain the pH at 7.365.
There is no exception for the rule of alkalinity.
The body will ALWAYS overcompensate for the excess acidity in the tissues by over-alkalizing the blood to maintain homeostasis.
I call this the “teeter-totter” effect.
Along comes the traditional medical attendant and perceives that there is too much alkalinity, when really there is not. This is an important concept to grasp, so let’s oversimplify a bit. The tissues have become acidic. The blood “knows” that.
So, it pours out extra alkalinity or alkaline phosphate into the blood and the blood pH spikes up to a higher than normal pH.
It’s like when we get the bejeebers scared out of us by something innocent, we over-react. When suddenly alarmed, a person might scream, holler, faint, get mad, strike out, drop the vase, kick the dog, or even have a heart attack. The blood does the same thing. A knee-jerk reaction…well, actually, a blood-jerk reaction.
Alternatively, how many times have you heard of a car going off the shoulder of the road and the driver over-reacts, jerks the wheel back, and flies into the other lane of oncoming traffic. It happens all the time. Incidentally, if that does happen to you, you’re better off not to interfere. Stay on the shoulder. Let the wheel stay there for a moment. Slow the car down. But don’t overreact.
Mainstream medicine, not understanding the cause of the excessive alkalinity pouring into the blood, may try and stop the rushing over-alkalization. But that’s the wrong move. We’re better off not to interfere. Once more. When your little boy falls down, sees mama going out the door, or is scared of the boogey man, what happens? He not only cries, but how often do we see a child go into a big, fat over-reaction?
Sometimes, they really get worked up. It’s a natural over-reaction to a typical situation. Now it’s Dad’s turn to over-react. Along comes Dad and says to keep quiet, don’t be such a little sissy, put a lid on it, grow up, stop that crying, OR ELSE… Since I have digressed to make a point, I may as well digress all the way. Wrong move, Dad. If you do that often enough, the message you send to your child is don’t have feelings, don’t express your feelings, you are not acceptable, don’t act like a child even though you are a child, and don’t be who you are. So don’t over-react Dad. Better to let the child get it out, stay in the room, validate their feelings, and use a little Active Listening (www.gordontraining.com).
Strong feelings can come and go…or come and stay. If you’re really klutzy, you could be orchestrating chronic emotional issues for a lifetime.
Gee, thanks Dad. Now, back to the blood.
Tissues are acidic. Here comes a flood of alkalinity–even so much that the pH rises and concerns the western medical establishment. But whatever it was that caused the pH to over-react must be understood. Acidic tissues mean problems ahead, correct?
Not only do we need alkalinity but lots of it. The acidic tissues will soon even out the rise in blood pH, and we will need additional alkalinity to wipe out the acidic tissue problem.
Cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc. are not diseases of alkalinity but are diseases of acidity!
The body uses the calcium of the bones as well as other buffers (bicarbonate, hemoglobin, sodium, etc.) to chelate acidity! That is why there are always micro-calcifications in the liver, pancreas, breast, bowels, bladder, bones, prostate, muscles, joints, blood vessels and brain before the liver, pancreas, breast, bowels, bladder, bones, prostate, muscles, joints, blood vessels and brain cancer tumor shows up.
Why prior to the tumor?
Because the body will always try and protect and preserve itself by buffering acids with the alkalinity of calcium. The bones are always affected in any cancer, heart condition, stroke, diabetes, etc. because the bones are an excellent source of calcium for buffering dietary and metabolic acids.
So is Cancer, Heart Attack, Stroke or Diabetes the disease?
No! Then is the loss of bone mass the disease or the calcium deposits in the liver, pancreas, breast, brain, etc. the disease?
Is the increase in the alkaline phosphates the disease?
NO! NO! NO!
These are all symptoms, not disease! Then the disease must be the over-acidity?
Well yes, and well no. Then what is the disease?
The “yes” part I call acidosis or hyper-acidity. That is an acceptable term for the condition. But it is really much more.
The “no” part is that it’s more than acidity. It’s a psychological disorder. It’s a sociological malaise. It’s a cultural-anthropological phenomenon. And once people understand the truth and the scientific foundation of “New Biology”TM, and once people understand the science of what I have been writing about for two, the better part of two decades, it may then become to be understood as a “moral disease” as well. And why is that, you ask?
Is committing suicide a moral issue?
Is drinking yourself to death a moral issue?
Is allowing your children to become obese flying in the face of natural law?
Well, yes, assuming you are aware of what’s happening and have other options. If you say “yes” to these last few questions, then we are looking at a very, complex psychological, sociological, cultural, biological and moral phenomenon.
Once you know and believe that over-acidity causes every disease and all dis-ease, then to ignore that fact is a form of suicide!
Just like Samson who slayed a 1000 Philistines with the jawbone of an ass, every day people use same instrument with their daily lifestyle and dietary choices.
When you eat poorly, you pull the trigger every day of your life, and eventually, the gun fires. The bullet might hit you square in the head like a massive heart attack or stroke, or it may kill you more slowly like a cancer, or it may simply put you in a fog for the next 15 years like Alzheimer’s or dementia.
This “disease-phenomenon” is an inverted way of living, eating and thinking!!!
Yes, this is the cause of ALL disease–ALL that disturbs the central balance of organized matter that leads to excess acidity in the blood and then tissues.
It is ALL that leads to increases in alkaline phosphates.
It is ALL micro-calcifications in the liver, pancreas, breast, brain, prostate, and so on,and so on.
ALL liver, pancreas, breast, bladder, bowel, prostate, brain, etc., tumors, ALL liver, pancreas, breast, bladder, bowel, prostate, brain, etc. cancer and ALL potential bone cancer!!!! First, we must understand that ALL of the above sicknesses and diseases are NOT sicknesses or diseases but a symptom of acidosis and catarrh that has built up in the blood and tissues that has significantly effected the white blood cells’ ability (the janitorial and garbage collectors for the blood and tissues) to remove metabolic, dietary acids and degenerative matter.
When we are dealing with any symptom or any effect, we need to look to the cause. To understand the cause is not difficult nor is the understanding of the treatment.
The “New Biology”TM explains the cause and effect of all sickness and disease in addition to explaining how to improve the quality and quantity of life. For example, enervation (the deprivation of force or strength) and muscle weakness per se is not a disease.
Weakness, or lost power, is not a disease; but, by causing a flagging of the elimination of tissue-waste which is toxic, the blood becomes charged with acids.
I call this Acidosis–poison in the blood and then tissues. This is disease and when the acidic toxins accumulate beyond the toleration point, a crisis takes place. This means that the poison or acid (virus) is being eliminated–often through the skin, the third kidney.
We can call this disease, but it is not!
The only disease is systemic Acidosis which localizes in the weakest parts of our body.
And what we call disease, is symptoms produced by the forced vicarious elimination of acids through the mucous membrane.
When the elimination takes place through the mucous membrane of the nose, it is called a cold–catarrh of the nose. And where these crises are repeated for years, the mucous membrane thickens and ulcerates, and the bones enlarge, closing the passages.
At this stage, hay fever or asthma develops.
When the throat and tonsils, or any of the respiratory passages, become the seat of the crises of acidity, we have croup, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, etc. When the acids locate in the cranial cavity we have dementia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, muddle thinking, forgetfulness, and even depression.
When the acids locate in the gastrointestinal tract we have IBS, gastrointestinal dysmotility, autonomic dysfunction, carotid stenosis and ischemic colitis.
When the acids are expressed through the skin we have psoriasis.
When the acids locate in the liver, pancreas, breast, bowels, bladder, prostate, uterus or brain tissue we have micro-calcifications of these acids that then leads to tumors and liver, pancreas, breast, bowels, bladder, prostate, uterus or brain cancer.
What is in the name?
All are symptoms of the expulsion of acids from the blood and then tissues at the different points named.
They are of the same character essentially and evolve from the one cause, namely, systemic Acidosis, as a crisis of toxemia. The description can be extended to every organ of the body, including the largest organ, the skin, causing melanoma cancer.
For any organ that is enervated below the average standard from stress of habit, from work, or worry, from injury, or any other cause, that organ may become the location of the crises of systemic Acidosis.
The symptoms presented differ with each organ affected. That fact gives color to the erroneous belief that every symptom-complex is a separate and distinct disease.
But, thanks to the new light and knowledge of Dr.Robert and Shelley Young, being shed by the “New Biology”TM upon nomenclature involved in the naming of a disease, every symptom-complex goes back to the one and only cause of all diseases, namely, systemic Acidosis.
To find the cause of all symptomologies including cancer, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, etc., start with colds and catarrh, and watch the pathology as it travels through “The Seven Stages of Acidity(TM), beginning with:
2) sensitivity and irritation (IBS),
5) indulation (lupus, lymes, fibromyalgia),
6) ulceration and then to
7) degeneration– cancer, heart attack, stroke, AIDS, ALS, MS and diabetes.
How well could you try to find the cause of man by ignoring his conception, embryonic life, childhood, manhood, etc. Nature’s order is interfered with by enervation habits until acidosis is established.
Then a vaccination (seen in Gulf War Syndrome and Spanish Flu Epidemic) or an infection (really an outfection) from any source will act as a firebrand. Sooner or later cause the most vulnerable organ (the bowels) will undergo organic change. The organ, however, has nothing to do with cause, and directing treatment toward the organ compounds the problem and is nonsense!
Examples of this wrong thinking yield blood transfusions for pernicious anemia, gland treatment for gland impotency, the cutting out of stones, ulcers and tumors. There is no question that one of the most pernicious practices in vogue today is treating so-called disease with disease and immunizing with the products of disease.
Current medical science calls this form of pathological thinking a “vaccination.” This my friends is the real psuedo-science! When the cause is not known, how is prevention or cure possible except by luck?
Producing a mild form of smallpox using vaccine is the same as introducing a poison into a healthy person.
It makes no sense!
Certainly only pathological thinking can arrive at such conclusions. Vaccine or autogenous remedies (metabolic acids) are made from the products of disease.
This also includes ALL antibiotics which are products of disease!
The idea that disease can be made to cure itself is an end-product of pathological thinking!
If prevention and cure mean producing disease, surely prevention and cure are not desirable. If prevention can be accomplished, then cures will not be needed! It is not disease, it is cause “in all its aspects” that we need to know before we can take steps to prevent or cure “disease.” Cause is constant, ever present, and always the same. Only effects, and the object on which a cause acts, change.
And the change is most inconstant.
To illustrate: a catarrh of the stomach presents first irritation, then inflammation, then ulceration, and finally indulation and cancer.
Not all cases run true to form. Only a small percentage evolve to ulcer and fewer reach the cancer stage. More acidic toxins exit via acute food poisoning or acute indigestion then by chronic diseases.
Most Americans are challenged with the symptomology of indigestion, which can include acid reflux, diarrhea and/or constipation.
The proper way to study disease is to study health and every influence favorable or not favorable to its continuance.
Our western system of medicine has been preoccupied with the study of disease, not health.
Disease is perverted health!
Any influence that lowers energy becomes disease producing. Disease cannot be its own cause, neither can it be its own cure and certainly not is own prevention! My personal discovery of the truth of ALL sickness and disease–that Acidosis is the cause of all so-called diseases–came about slowly, step by step, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little. At first, I postulated that yeast and molds must be the general cause of disease. Then I decided that it was not yeast and molds but that the body becoming enervated. But wait a minute, enervation is not a disease; disease must be due to dietary and metabolic acids.
I reasoned that localized or systemic Acidosis is the true general cause of all disease and must be autogenerated. And if disease is due to autogenerated acids, what is the cause of that autogeneration? The answer is found in understanding the nature of matter and how it organizes and disorganizes. I realized that there must be a physical or emotional disturbance to organized matter before it can begin its disorganization.
And when matter begins to disorganize, it gives rise to autogenerated acids. This is true for all matter!
To illustrate, take a physical injury to a joint which is often complicated with the prior symptom of rheumatism. The rheumatism previous to the injury was potentially in the blood and/or tissues. Just what change had taken place in the matter which, under stress of injury or shock of any kind, would cause a reaction with fever?
I could not understand until the “Acid Theory” suggested itself to my mind. After that, the cause of disease unfolded before me in an easy and natural manner.
I called this new paradigm for ALL sickness and disease “The Cycle of Imbalance.” You can read about “The Cycle of Imbalance” in my book, “Sick and Tired, Reclaim You Inner Terrain.”
You can order this book at:
In a few words, without acidosis, there can be no sickness or disease and there can be NO CANCER! NO HEART ATTACK! NO STROKE! NO DIABETES! NO DEMENTIA! NO AIDS, NO MS,NO DIS-EASE!
It is also true that without acidosis there can be NO PAIN!
Therefore, pain equals acid and acid equals pain.
I knew that the waste products of cellular disorganization and metabolism were toxic and that the only reason why we were not poisoned by it was because it was removed from the organism as fast as it was produced.
Then I discovered that the acid was retained in the blood and then tissues when there was a checking of elimination.
Then, the cause of the checking had to be determined. In time, I thought out the cause of all sickness and disease. I knew that when we had normal energy, organic functioning was normal.
Then came the discovery that enervation caused a checking of elimination.
The cause of ALL sickness and disease is NOW found!
Enervation checks elimination of the waste-products — ACIDS — of cellular disorganization and metabolism.
Retention of metabolic and dietary ACIDS is the first and the only cause of ALL sickness and disease!
One of the first things to do to get rid of any so-called disease is to get rid of all the acid, for it is this state of the blood and then tissues that makes disease possible.
Infection, drugs and food poisoning may kill, but if they do not, they will be short-lived in a subject that is free from enervation and acid.
Conversely, the poisoning will linger in the system until the acid is overcome. Then and only then will elimination remove all traces of outfection – ACID.
Syphilitic outfection (herpes, warts, moles of any color) is pronouncedly an acidic subject thrown into great virulency by poor nutrition, lifestyle and conventional treatment.
The same is true with HIV/AIDS. The so-called infection which in reality is an outfection of acid, is the least offender of the trio. Add fear (false evidence appearing real) wrong eating, poor sanitationand wrong lifestyle choices and we have a formidable symptom complex that serves to justify all that professional syphilomaniacs HIV/AIDSomaniacs say and write about these dis-eaes.
Remove Acidosis, drugging, FEAR, poorsanitation, wrong lifestyle choices, and vile eating, and there is little left. What is left can be easily thrown out of the body by Nature! Scientific research is being carried on vigorously in an attempt to find the cause of disease. The conception of disease is that the cause is individual. Here is where investigators meet their Waterloo. All of the so-called diseases are increasing symptom complexes due to repeated crises of Acidosis.
Diseases have no independent existence!
As soon as acidity is controlled, the symptoms disappear unless an organ has been forced by innumerable crises to degenerate.
Even organic change, when the organ is not destroyed, will come back by correcting the life and getting rid of the true cause–the crisis of acidosis! All symptoms of all so-called diseases have one origin.
All diseases are ONE!
Unity in all things is Nature’s plan.
Polytheism is gone, and everything pertaining to it and coming out of it must go.
So you NOW have the truth! No more LIES!
There is only one sickness, one disease, and NOW one treatment.
The one sickness and disease is the over-acidification of the blood and then tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating, and thinking.
The one treatment is to alkalize and energize with Dr. Robert and Shelley Young’s pH Miracle Living Plan.
We all need to go back to the Garden of Eden and start living and eating GREEN.
I call this eating like “COWS” which standsfor the following:
C = Chlorophyl
O = Oxygen – nascent oxygen or singlet oxygen
W = Water – alkaline oxygen
S = Salt – liquid mineral salts
You can learn more about this program on our website or in our books, The pH Miracle, The pH Miracle for Diabetes, The pH Miracle for Weight Loss, Back to the House of Health I and II and Sick and Tired, which you can also purchase through Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble or Borders Books. The complete program is a 12 to 16 week program that includes the alkaline foods outlined in the foundational section of Shelley’s book, “Back to the House of Health I and II.”
You start off the program with a 14 to 30 day liquid feast.
You can eat as much and as often as you like as long as the food is green and pureed and/or juiced.
The soups found in Shelley’s book such as the Broccoli Soup, Aspar/Zinc Soup, The Healing Soup and the Popeye Soup with lots of avocados are excellent to eat during the liquid feast.
You also need to begin taking the nutritional supplements while drinking at least 4 to 6 liters of Greens a day.
Start out gradually drinking 1 liter of Greens per day and then work up to 2, then 3, then 4, until you are drinking 6 liters a day.
When you take the nutritional supplements, take 5 drops 6 times a day of the liquid colloids under the tongue, (except the pH drops which are taken in purified water and NEVER taken under the tongue) away from meals, or taking 1 capsule 3 to 6 times a day of the encapsulated products with meals. I would suggest taking 4 capsules every 4 waking hours of the bowel cleansing formula.
The bowel cleansing product helps to keep acids moving through normal elimination.
After you complete the 14 to 30 day liquid feast, you can then begin introducing some solid food but it still needs to be as green as possible. Remember, when you are green you are clean. I would suggest not only the vegetable soups, but steam fry vegetables and lots of salads. Make sure you use only lemon or lime and good oils on your salads for the dressing.
NO VINEGAR, NO ENZYMES and NO PROBIOTICS! Another tip is to include liberal amounts of flax, hemp, and olive oil in or with your soups and salads. I suggest a minimum of 5 to 6 tablespoons of good oils every day. And you should be supplementing pomegranateseed oil everyday.

In conclusion, the medical world has been looking for a remedy to cure ALL disease, notwithstanding the obvious fact that nature needs NO REMEDY and NO CURE. She needsonly an opportunity to exercise her own prerogative of self-healing. Cures! There are NO CURES! And there will be NO CURES Found!
The subconscious builds health or disease according to OUR ORDER! And we do it with our thoughts, our words and our deeds.
If we send impulses of irritation, discontent, unhappiness, complaining, hate, envy, selfishness, greed, lust, and the biggest one of all pride, the subconscious builds us in the image of OUR ORDER!
The truth is that WE NEED NO DOCTOR and WE NEED NO NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN!
We need to empower ourselves to effect a reconciliation between our subconscious creator and ourselves.
What we need is to learn self-control, respect, poise, relaxation, deep breathing,alkaline eating and drinking,and alkaline exercising!
And when these impulses are sent over the sympathetic nerves to our subconscious creator, we will begin to receive images of a more ideal man or woman, until an approach to “Perfection is Attained”.
Sickness and disease, including the symptoms of cancer, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, tumors, HIV/AIDS, MS, lupus, depression, hyperthyroidism, Wilson’s Syndrome, fybromyalgia, pain in every joint and muscle, chronic fatigue syndrome, muscle cramps, allergies (food), asthma, bronchitis, frequent colds, candida, hypoglycemia, allergic reaction to any chemical, chronic fatiguing, food cravings, indigestion, inflamed joints, insomnia, mood swings, gas, bloating, diverticulitis, irritable bowel, pneumonia, ulcers, stomach and bowel cramps and even memory loss is the culmination of years of abuse of nutrition and years of acids from faulty elimination by forcing the bowels to move.
We don’t GET sick and tired we DO sick and tired!
The most powerful way to eliminate metabolic and dietary acids in the blood and then tissues is the pH Miracle Living Lifestyle and Dietary Plan.
You are the builder of tomorrow, and you need not pay a fortuneteller, doctor, lawyer, preacher, or banker to tell you what will happen to you tomorrow.
Nothing will happen.
The inevitable will come.
You will inherit the pHruits of today’s sowing.
I hope you find these thoughts and suggestions helpful when dealing with ANY symptomology, whether physical, emotional or spiritual.
Your life, Your Health, Your Fitness, Your Energy is the consequence of your daily choices and you are free to choose!
I pray you choose wisely! The quality and the quantity of your life depends upon it.
In love and healing light,
Dr. Robert O. Young

In the last days Paul prophesied, “Men ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” 2 Timonthy 3:7
Paul’s prophesy has been fulfilled in our day!
As of today 126,000 people have died from wars among men. The loss of life is a sad tragedy.But you should also know that this year alone
12 million people have died from heart attacks
5.5 million people from cancer
2.2 million people from HIV/AIDS and
2.7 million people from Respiratory Disorders.
But the biggest loss of life this year has been from abortions at,
34 million and climbing.
I have thought many times if we truly understandand realize where the real war is being raged.
In the words of the great prophet Moses of old,”my people perish because of lack of knowledge.”

my mum had a heart transplant, the doctor had told her not to take tonic, and my local ionizer distributor told my mum not to drink alkaline water as it will cause rejection as her health improve(ironically). are there no other option for organ transplant patients to enjoy better quality of life?
Excellent and informative article. However, “My people perish for lack of knowledge” is not from Moses, but from Hosea 6:4.
Dear Tim:>>You Mum will live longer and healthier by drinkng alkaline water and building blood with green foods and green drinks. The heart needs an alkaline environment to stay healthy and strong.
Dear Soteriagal:>>Thank you for the correction.>>Regards,>>Dr. Young
Dear Dr Young, >Thank you for an excellent article. Purchased all your books through Amazon and am trying to follow the Ph Miracle for weight loss (not for weight loss, but breast cancer)but I have a problem. Tried to contact Innerlight to order the supplements recommended in your book but they will not sell to customers in South Africa. Really a pity. Any suggestions?
