Que los jugos verdes o sangre de las plantas es casi identica en su estructura molecular a la sangre humana, por lo que es ideal para renovarla, es decir crear celulas madre sanas, siendo la materia prima para que la sangre pueda fabricar células madre corporales que solo nuestra madre naturaleza nos puede proporcionar.

El proceso de asimilación de los nutrientes y la fabricación de células madre sanas o cancerígenas ocurre en las criptas de las microvellosidades intestinales (villi) del yeyuno en el intestino delgado.

La diferencia entre fabricar celulas madre cancerígenas o células madre saludables depende de como es la calidad de lo que estas bebiendo y comiendo diariamente, es decir de la calidad de los nutrientes o desnutrientes.

Happy Thanksgiving – The Health Benefits of Pomegrantes

1461779_10202559934503456_589797529_n

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pomegranates are nearly round, 2-1/2 to 5 in. wide fruit crowned at the base by the prominent calyx.

The tough, leathery skin or rind is typically yellow overlaid with light or deep pink or rich red.

The interior is separated by membranous walls and white, spongy, bitter tissue into compartments packed with sacs filled with sweetly acid, juicy, red, pink or whitish pulp or aril.

In each sac there is one angular, soft or hard seed.

The arils (seed casings) of the pomegranate are consumed raw. The entire seed is eaten, though the fleshy outer portion of the seed is the part that is desired. The taste differs depending on the variety of pomegranate and its state of ripeness.

Pomegranate juice is a popular drink in the Middle East, and is also used in Iranian and Indian cuisine; it began to be widely marketed in the U.S. in 2004. Pomegranate concentrate is used in Syrian cuisine. Grenadine syrup is thickened and sweetened pomegranate juice; it is used in cocktail mixing. Before the tomato arrived to the Middle East, grenadine was widely used in many Persian foods; it can still be found in traditional recipes. The juice can also be used as an antiseptic when applied to cuts. In addition, Pomegranate seeds are sometimes used as a spice.

The primary commercial growing regions of the world are the Near East, India and surrounding countries and southern Europe. In California commercial cultivation is centered in the southern San Joaquin Valley.

One pomegranate delivers 40% of an adult’s daily vitamin C requirement. It is also a rich source of folic acid and of antioxidants.

Recent research into the health benefits of Pomegranates has created unprecedented demand both in the United States and Europe. Recent studies have been published showing a positive relationships between pomegranate consumption and prostate cancer, carotid arteries and hypertension.

A Natural Healthy and Legal Way To Increase Blood Volume – Pass It Along To Lance

There were several questions that came to mind after watching the Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong interview where Lance finally admitted to using EPO, human-growth hormone, testosterone and blood doping.

So What is Blood Doping?

Blood doping is an illicit method of improving athletic performance by artificially boosting the blood’s ability to carry and deliver more oxygen to the connective tissues, including the muscules.

In many cases, blood doping increases the red blood count and its main oxygen carrying molecule, hemoglobin.  So, increasing hemoglobin allows higher amounts of oxygen to reach and alkalize an athlete’s muscles.  This can improve stamina and performance, particularly in long-distance events, such as long-distance running and cycling.

Blood doping is banned by the International Olympic Committe and other sports organizations.

What Are Types of Blood Doping?

The three widely used types of blood doping are:

1) Blood transfusions
2) Injections of erythropoetin (EPO), and 
3) Injections of synthetic oxygen oxygen carriers.

Here are some more details about each of these types of blood doping:
Blood transfusions.  In normal medical practice, patients may undergo blood transfusions to replace blood lost due to injury, surgery or chemotherapy. Transfusions also are given to patients who suffer from low red blood cell counts caused by anemiakidney failure, cancer and chemotherapy treatments.
Illicit blood transfusions are used by athletes to boost athletic performance. There are two types.
Autologous transfusion. This involves a transfusion of the athlete’s own blood, which is drawn and then stored for future use.  Most commonly this involves the removal of two units (approximately 2 pints!) of the athletes blood several weeks prior to competition. The blood is then frozen until 1-2 days before the competition, when it is thawed and injected back into the athlete. This is known as autologous blood doping.
Homologous transfusion. In this type of transfusion, athletes use the blood of someone else with the same blood type and then injected straight into the athlete.
EPO Injections

EPO is a hormone produced by the kidney. It regulates the body’s production of red blood cells.  In medical practice, EPO injections are given to stimulate the production of red blood cells. For example, a synthetic EPO can be used to treat patients with anemia related to chronic or end-stage kidney disease or cancer and its treatment with chemotherapy.
Athletes using EPO do so to encourage their bodies to produce higher than normal amounts of red blood cells, hemoglobin and blood volume called hematocrit to enhance athletic performance.
Synthetic Oxygen Carriers 

These are chemicals that have the ability to carry oxygen. Two examples are:
  • HBOCs (hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers)
  • PFCs (perfluorocarbons)
Synthetic oxygen carriers have a legitimate medical use as emergency therapy. It is used when a patient needs a blood transfusion but:
  • human blood is not available
  • there is a high risk of blood out-fection (A blood outfection is when the blood is breaking down due to metabolic and/or dietary acids or from acidic drug use.)
  • there isn’t enough time to find the proper match of blood type
Athletes use synthetic oxygen carriers to achieve the same performance-enhancing effects of other types of blood doping: increased oxygen in the blood carried by the hemoglobin in red blood cells that helps reduce tissue acidosis in the connective tissues and muscles.  This results in reduced tissue or muscle breakdown and tissue acidosis that causes inflammation and pain.

So what could have Lance Armstrong done differently to achieve athletic superiority in his sport without drugs and blood fransfusions? And, how could have Lance Armstrong naturally increased his red blood cell count, hemaglobin and hematocrit and in turn increased his VO2 or oxygen volume to his connective tissues and muscles thus minimizing acid build-up and cellular breakdown, without taking hormones, steroids, EPO and blood transfusions known as blood doping?

Having been a professional athlete myself I have been doing natural blood doping successfully for myself (My blood counts run consistently – RBC count 5.2 million/mcL, Hemoglobin 17.2 g/dl, Hematocrit 53%, White Blood Count 3.8 thousands/mcL, Platelet Count 156 thousands/mcL, Glucose 80 mg/dl, Sodium 146 mEq/L, Chloride 106 mEq/L, Potassium 5 mEq/L, and Calcium 9.8 mg/dl, just to name a few of the most important markers in the blood), other athletes (including Professional and Olympic athletes) and cancer patients around the World for years with NO negative side-effects.

IT IS SIMPLE – IT IS SAFE – IT IS NATURAL – IT IS SMART and IT IS LEGAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No side-effects except for increased health, energy and vitality.

Pass this on to Lance Armstrong?

Here is the formula for natural blood building without medical drugs, hormones, steroids, or blood transfusions (based upon 70kg body):

1)  Drink 250ml of pH Miracle liquid Chlorophyll.  Chlorophyll is the concentrated blood of green plants and is identical to human hemoglobin except for the center atom of magnesium in chlorophyll.  Drinking the blood of green plants will increase hemoglobin in less than two weeks.

2)  Drink 6 liters of pH Miracle Greens with 5 drops of the puripHy per liter.  The pH Miracle greens contains concentrated (28 to 1 concentration) grasses, fruit and vegetables that will increase red blood cell count and blood volume as indicated on a Comprehensive Blood Count Test.  The pH Miracle puripHy drops will increase the pH of the green drink and help to buffer metabolic and dietary acids that break down connective tissue and weaken muscles.

3)  Ingest 16 portions of alkalizing green fruit and vegetables.  Ingesting liberal amounts of green fruit and vegetables daily will help to maintain the high levels of red blood cells, hemoglobin and hematocrit.

4)  Drink 100ml of the pH Miracle Omega 3, 6 and 9 oil.  The ingestin of polyunsaturated oils from hemp, borage and flax will provide the necessary lipids for building the membranes of stem cells and blood cells and keeping them strong.

5)  Ingest 1 scoop of pHour salts in the morning, 1 sccop at night and 1 scoop any time the pH of the urine drops below 7.2.  The pHour salts contain four foundational mineral salts for the purpose of maintaining the alkaline design of the body fluids and reduce and/or eliminate the metabolic and respiratory acids that build-up during strenuous exercise such as carbonic acid and lactic acid.

6)  Spray the pHlavor salts orally to replace electrolytes and reduce the acids that create lightheadedness, dizziness, cold hands, cold feet, poor circulation, low energy, just to name a few symptoms of low mineral salts.

7) And, finally take 2 scoops twice a day of the pH Miracle L-Arginine Max to improve blood and lymph circulation by breaking up acidic mucous, plaque, calcifications, and cysts in the blood, lymph and connective tissue.

When an athlete follows the above recommendations based upon my clinical research for over twenty years he or she will consistantly show increases in their red blood cell count approaching or exceeding 5 million/mcL, hemoglobin increases approaching or exceeding 15 g/dl, and hematocrit increases approaching or exceeding a volume of  50 percent or higher.

The Many Health Benefits of Almonds

10527262_10152224047863317_4714492967142919885_n-1

Almond milk is most commonly used in a vegan or alkaline vegan diet or as a substitute for cow’s milk in people who are lactose intolerance or highly acidic.

Almond milk nutrition

Many almond milk products are supplemented with vitamins A, D and B-12, so they provide a significant percentage of your recommended dietary allowance for those nutrients. One cup of almond milk contains 500 IU of vitamin A, 100 IU of vitamin D and 3 micrograms of vitamin B-12, which fulfills 100 percent of your B-12 requirements and roughly 20 percent of your vitamin A and D recommendations for the day. Vitamins A and D are important for maintaining a healthy alkaline buffering system, and B-12 is an essential nutrient for critical functions in the body such as blood cell formation and DNA synthesis.

Health benefits of almond milk

Almond milk is a great choice for those who want to lose weight and are following an alkaline diet.  This means that almond milk a great choice when it comes to supporting the health of the skeletal system.  Almond milk contains both vitamins that provide healthier and stronger bones, including calcium and vitamin D.  Almond milk is rich in phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Additionally, many commercial almond milks are supplemented with enough calcium to meet one-third of the RDA. If you choose three servings per day of almond milk over the recommended three servings per day of dairy products, you can still meet your calcium requirements of 1,000 milligrams per day for men and 1,200 milligrams per day for women, which is important for optimal bone health.  Vitamins E and A from almond milk have antioxidant or anti-acid activity which can protect you from metabolic and dietary acids.  Vitamin E also an anti-inflammatory created from retained acidic waste products and therefore helps to support natural immunity. Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant and therefore supports natural immunity and  reduces metabolic and dietary acids that may affect vision and communication between body cells.  Vitamin D plays important role in absorbing calcium in your bones and teeth.  100 g of almond milk contains 83.3mg of calcium which is about 8% recommended daily intake of the calcium which is most important mineral for bone health.  While 100 grams of almond milk only contains 83.3 mg of phosphorus which is 2% of recommended daily intake of phosphorus. This mineral plays an important role in building bones together with vitamin D, which helps absorb calcium. According to the data on Blue Diamond Unsweetened almond milk, 100 g contains 41.7 IU of vitamin D which is about 10% of the recommended daily intake.

Almond Milk can an help with weight loss

Almond milk is a low-calorie or low carbohydrate, low acid, low sugar, high protein electron-rich energy beverage and therefore an excellent choice for supporting a weight loss program.  According to a study at the University of California showed that drinking grapefruit juice before each meal, obese people lost 31/2-10lb over three months through this alone.

Almond milk will increase blood sugar levels slightly and is a better choice for diabetics than drinking a glass of high acid orange juice which will spike the blood sugars.

Almond milk is good for overall health

Almond milk contains almost all the macronutrients (proteins, oils, and carbohydrates) making it a nutrient dense alkaizing food.

Soaking your nuts

According to research, almonds contain phytates which are considered anti-nutrieint and can reduce the absorption of calcium in our body.  The best way to reduce the phytic acid in almonds is soaking them in alkaline water at a pH of 9.5.   The best ratio for soaking is to use is 3 : 1 or 3 part almonds to 1 part alkaline water at a pH of 9.5.  If you want to get similar texture like cow’s milk then you should use 1.5 : 1 water : almonds ratio.

Will Soy Prevent or Reverse Disease?



Will Eating and/or Drinking Soy Prevent or Reverse Dis-ease or So-called Disease?

Cancer is a group of dis-eases characterized by the uncontrolled fermentation and degeneration of body cells. Over 10 million Americans today are cancer survivors, and about 1.4 million Americans are expected to be diagnosed each year.1

“Diet plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of ALL cancerous conditions, and soy protein is one of the leading anti-acid or alkalizing and therefore anti-carcinogenic foods being studied,” stated Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center.

SOY FOODS & CANCER

There has been much focus during the past 15 years on the anticancer effects of soy foods.2There are several presumed chemopreventive agents in the soy bean,6 but the isoflavones have received the most attention.3 A particular interest lies in the role of soy foods and isoflavones in reducing the risk of breast and prostate cancer.2

SOY & BREAST CANCER

Data modestly supports the hypothesis that soy food intake may reduce the incidence of breast cancer. A recently published analysis found the relative risk for breast cancer was 95 percent when comparing high- vs. low-soy consumers.5 However, many of the case-control and prospective studies included in this analysis were of poor quality.6

Rodent studies have generally shown that isoflavones, or soy protein, inhibit chemically induced mammary tumors when given prior to tumor initiation7-9, although there are a number of exceptions.10-12 Interestingly, the chemopreventive effects of isoflavones appear to be affected by the background dietary choices.

When the isoflavone genistein was added to the semi-purified diet, chemically induced rodent mammary tumors were not inhibited, but when added to the regular chow diet, tumor development was suppressed by approximately 50 percent.13 This suggests that animal research, which most commonly uses semi-purified diets, may actually underestimate the potential anticarcinogenic effects of soy and other foods.

Soy & Markers of Breast Cancer

In contrast to the animal and epidemiologic data, there is little clinical evidence that soy or isoflavones favorably affect markers of breast cancer risk including breast tissue density,14, 15serum estrogen levels,16, 17 and breast cell proliferation.18 There is limited evidence that estrogen metabolism is favorably affected19 and that menstrual cycle length is increased (which decreases cancer risk).16

Nevertheless, there remains considerable enthusiasm for the possibility that soy food intake contributes to the low breast cancer rate in Japan.

Early Intake of Soy May Reduce Breast Risk

There is both epidemiologic 20-22 and animal 23, 24 data in support of the hypothesis that early soy intake reduces later risk of developing breast cancer. This hypothesis is consistent with mounting evidence that early life influences — parity, lactation, age at menses, birth weight, etc. — impact risk of developing breast cancer.25-36 Studies of migrants suggest that the first 20 years of life have an especially profound impact on risk.36-38 The epidemiologic data suggest just one to two servings of soy foods is protective.

Breaking News – Soy Breast Cancer Study

Soy Breast Cancer Study Holds Promise, But Calls for Further Research

For more than 15 years, soy foods have been actively investigated for their possible role in reducing breast cancer risk. Initial enthusiasm about this hypothesis was based on several observations. These include the low breast cancer rates in Japan, early animal research indicating that soy beans in rodent diets reduced mammary tumor development and evidence suggesting that the isoflavones (phytoestrogens) in soy foods may exert anti-estrogenic effects.

However, establishing a relationship between cancer risk and diet – especially specific foods – is much more difficult than establishing such links in the case of other chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease. This is because there are few well-established non-invasive indicators of cancer risk, and studies are very rarely conducted for long enough to measure actual differences in tumor incidence. Consequently, it is difficult to claim with confidence whether a particular intervention increases or decreases the chances of developing cancer.

Epidemiologic research is a useful mode of investigation for exploring a relationship between diet and cancer. Epidemiology is the study of the patterns, causes, and control of disease in groups of people. There are two primary types of epidemiologic studies, case-control and prospective studies. In case-control studies, scientists compare people with cancer to those without in hopes of identifying characteristics such as lifestyle or diet that are more common to one group than the other. In prospective studies, scientists first evaluate the characteristics of a large group of healthy people, then follow those subjects for many years in hopes of identifying whether certain factors are more common to those who develop cancer than to those who don’t. Generally, prospective studies are considered more credible than case-control studies. It is important to recognize, however, that epidemiologic studies cannot establish cause and effect relationships. Only clinical trials can do that. But epidemiologic studies are often used as a basis for clinical research.

To evaluate the relationship between soy intake and breast cancer risk, Bruce Trock and colleagues from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Georgetown University conducted a meta-analysis of epidemiologic studies. A meta-analysis is the statistical analysis of a large collection of results from individual studies for the purpose of integrating the findings. This particular analysis included 12 case-control studies and 6 prospective studies. The major finding of this analysis was that when all women (Asian and non-Asian, pre- and postmenopausal) were considered, soy intake was associated with a 14% reduction in breast cancer risk. That is, women consuming higher quantities of soy were 14% less likely to develop breast cancer than women who consumed relatively little soy. However, subgroup analysis revealed that soy was more protective against pre- compared to postmenopausal breast cancer, and was protective in studies involving non-Asian women but not Asian women.

The analysis by Trock and colleagues provides modest support for the notion that soy may protect against breast cancer. A 14% reduction is certainly noteworthy, but for several reasons the study results should be interpreted with caution.

First, in many studies, soy intake was not actually quantified. Rather, it was estimated based on the urinary excretion of isoflavones. Because urinary isoflavone excretion varies so much from person to person, it provides only a rough approximation of soy intake. Furthermore, although soy was found to be protective in studies involving non-Asian women, the intake of soy by the women in these studies was quite low. There is some doubt as to whether such low intakes are sufficient to exert biological effects. Since soy foods are still consumed by only a minority of people in non-Asian countries – and are often favored by especially health-conscious individuals – we must consider the possibility that the perceived cancer-protective effects of soy may result from an overall healthy lifestyle, rather than soy consumption per se. Although the researchers employed statistical techniques to try to separate the effects of soy from other factors common to people who eat soy, this is very difficult to do.

While some evidence, including the new analysis by Trock and colleagues, suggests soy foods may reduce breast cancer risk, no conclusions can be made at this time. Nevertheless, because soy foods provide excellent nutrition, they can play an important role in an overall healthy diet, regardless of their possible relationship to breast cancer protection.

SOY & PROSTATE CANCER

The soy bean isoflavone genistein inhibits the growth of both androgen-dependent39-42 and androgen-independent39, 42-45 prostate cancerous cells, depending on the level of soy doses administered. In addition, genistein inhibits the invasive capacity of prostate cancerous cells 42and enhances the ability of radiation to kill these cells.46 However, the concentration of genistein required to exert these effects is higher than the serum isoflavone levels of people who eat soy foods.47-49 Nevertheless, several observations suggest these effects are biologically relevant.39,44-49

Regional Diets Can Impact Prostate Cancer

In Japan, although many men have prostate cancer, few die of this dis-ease. This is because the small tumors often referred to as latent prostate cancer, not uncommon to Japanese men, rarely progress to the more advanced form of this disease.51, 52 Isoflavones in combination with tea extracts were shown to reduce tumor growth in mice more effectively than either agent alone.9

In Asia, and especially in Japan, where prostate cancer mortality rates are low, both soy foods and tea are important components of their diet. There are likely several factors that contribute to this clinical situation in Japanese men and according to the International Prostate Health Council, and isoflavone intake from soy foods may be one.53

There has been limited epidemiologic investigation of the relationship between soy intake and prostate cancer. These studies have produced mixed results but can be said to be consistent with the hypothesis that soy intake reduces prostate cancer risk.

A recent analysis of 10 epidemiologic studies found that soy intake was associated with a one-third reduction in prostate cancer risk.5 However, many of the epidemiologic studies involved a small number of cases54, 55 and/or did not comprehensively evaluate soy food intake. However, a recent comprehensive Japanese case-control study found that when comparing the highest with the lowest soy food intake cases, risk was reduced by nearly 50 percent.56

Soy May Help Treat Existing Prostate Cancer

Data suggests that soy foods may be useful in the treatment of existing prostate cancer, but this remains speculative. A study of 11 trials, three involving healthy subjects57-59 and eight involving prostate cancer patients,60-67 examined the effects of isoflavones on PSA levels. No benefits were noted in healthy subjects, but among the cancer patients one-half noted favorable effects.68Recent intervention data demonstrate that reducing prostate cancer risk is not dependent upon reductions in PSA levels.69

What Causes the Elevation of Cholesterol Levels In the Blood?

After all, what causes the elevation of cholesterol levels in blood?

The following are some suggestions from the medical literature about factors, beyond the famous but wronged and simplistic idea that foods based on saturated fats cause the development of atherosclerosis (1, 22), suggesting that stress, high carbohydrate diets (sugar acid) and smoke may raise total cholesterol and low density lipoproteins levels:

1. Stress increases metabolic acids
a) Anxiety and cholesterol elevation (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
b) Hostility and cholesterol elevation (12, 13, 14)
c) Extreme physical exertion and cholesterol elevation (15)

2) High carbohydrate diets or the acid sugar and cholesterol elevation (16, 17, 18).

Your Guide To Alkaline Foods That Slim

chart listing acidic and alkaline foods

 A quick and easy reference guide to the alkaline foods that slim and energize—and the acidic foods that trigger weight gain. As a growing body of research shows, eating a diet rich in alkaline foods can ease internal inflammation, improve digestion and flush stubborn fat. But just what makes a food acidic or alkaline?
According to Robert O. Young, Ph.D., coauthor of The pH Miracle, this pH measurement isn’t based on the makeup of the food itself, but rather the chemical by-products the food produces during digestion and absorption. For example, lemons contain organic acids that give them a tart taste, but when this citrus fruit is consumed, it forms alkaline compounds that work to neutralize toxic acids in the body.
To make following an alkaline plan easy, FIRST asked health experts to categorize the most common alkaline and acidic foods. Simply fill your plate with 80 percent alkaline-forming foods (like the fruits and veggies listed on the right half of the chart) and limit intake of acid-forming foods (like the meat, dairy products and carbs listed on the left) to 20 percent of your diet.

My Self-care to a Self-cure From Lupus and Raynaud’s Disease

Hands NEVER Lie!
My Self-Care to a Self-Cure From Lupus

“Hi, my name is Ida Kolader from Amsterdam. It always amazes me that people are so skeptic, almost afraid it seems, about a natural holistic approach to treating and reversing a sickness or dis-ease. And yet, people have complete faith in conventional medical doctors, synthetic drugs, the pharmaceutical industry and their search for a miracle cure or better yet THE miracle cure.

My Lupus symptoms included severe inflammation of my palms and soles, sometimes so extreme that I could hardly hold a pen or put on my shoes. An acidic symptom my doctors hadn’t seen before and couldn’t properly manage with medication. I’ve also had Raynaud’s for 10 years which again is very painful and uncomfortable, so I started wearing gloves to prevent attacks.

Unfortunately, MY medical doctors failed to mention that nutrition and exercise are a huge influence for your over-all health and fitness. Within 2 weeks of transitioning to The pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle diet or what Dr. Robert O. Young calls ‘The New Biology’ my palms and soles cleared up and didn’t hurt anymore. This was the first winter (2013) after 7 years of pain and suffering where I only needed gloves just once! And yes, I know, it wasn’t a cold winter but that never really mattered before. I could barely go outside without my gloves. And, I had several pairs lying around the house and in my car just to make sure I always had a pair available!

Below, you will see several pictures of me and my hands. Why? Because my hands tell the story of my healing from Lupus and my HANDS WOULD NEVER LIE!

The first picture is of me in 2007, after receiving the traditional medical treatments for Lupus, including chemo therapy, plaqeunil and monthly IVIG iv’s. The second picture is a picture of my inflammed AND PAINFUL hand 1 week before I attended Dr. Robert O. Young’s pH Miracle Retreat at the Ti Sana Detox Center, in Como, Italy. The third picture is a picture of my hand 3 weeks after transitioning onto Dr. Young’s pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet following The pH Miracle Retreat in Como, Italy. The fourth picture is a picture of my healthy, alkaline, and PAIN FREE hand taken after my 10th month on the alkaline lifestyle and diet. The last picture is the current healthy and alkaline ‘ME’ completely free of TRADITIONAL DOCTORS, and ALL BIG PHARMA DRUGS! I AM A LIVING, BREATHING TESTAMENT THAT THERE IS A SELF-CURE FOR ALL SICKNESS AND DISEASE, INCLUDING LUPUS!!

I probably won’t win a beauty pageant but I am so freaking HAPPY it doesn’t hurt anymore! And, ALL I did was restore my body’s natural alkaline healthy state by following Dr. Young’s pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet, HE calls THE NEW BIOLOGY.”

To learn more about Dr. Young and His pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet read The pH Miracle revised and updated book! http://www.phmiracle.com or http://www.phmiraclebooks.com You can also read more of Dr. Young’s health articles at: http://www.articlesofhealth.blogspot.com

Please read and share this post with everyone you love and care about. Let them KNOW that there is a self-care to a self-cure for ALL sickness and disease, including Lupus!

ONE LAST THING! Please watch and share my documentary on Lupus with the World so the millions that are suffering from ENERVATION, IRRITATION, INFLAMMATION, INDURATION, ULCERATION AND DEGENERATION can NOW KNOW there is a SELF-CURE FOR ALL SICKNESS AND DIESEASE, including LUPUS!!!!!
