Reversing Type I Diabetes with The pH Miracle for Diabetes

John is a 13 year old boy from San Francisco, California and was diagnosed with Type I diabetes with blood sugars as high as 540 mg/dl and a A1c of 12.  John’s Mother introduced John to the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet.  His blood sugars are now normal, his A1c has dropped to 5.9 and he no longer needs insulin injection.  John will continue on the pH Miracle for Diabetes program to continue his healing of his bowels where diabetes begins.  That’s right.  My theory is diabetes begins in the bowels NOT the pancreas.  Two of the major contributors to the condition of diabetes and damage to the intestinal villi of the small intestines is the ingestion of animal protein and high sugar foods.  John is happy to know that he does NOT have to take insulin for the rest of his life.  John’s progress is being followed by the University of California San Francisco, California and the pH Miracle Living Center,  San Diego, California.  For more information of reversing Type I and Type II diabetes read The pH Miracle for Diabetes by Dr. Robert and Shelley Young.  www.phmiracle.com

Libro "Revertir la Diabetes


Hace unos meses escribí sobre un libro (“Curación de la diabetes en 30 días”) que había leído y me gustó muchísimo y que posiblemente sería traducido al español. Ya que todavía no he tenido noticias sobre la finalización de su traducción ni fecha de su publicación, quería presentaros otro libro/programa para curar la diabetes que acabo de leer y que también me ha gustado mucho y creo que puede ayudar a mucha gente si se aplican sus principios y recomendaciones.
Se trata de un libro electrónico titulado “Revertir la diabetes. El revolucionario programa para revertir la diabetes y restaurar la salud” de Sergio Russo.

Revisión y crítica del libro

Empezaré por lo que menos me ha gustado del libro. En realidad son dos cosas: la traducción al español deja algo que desear para los que somos más exigentes con la lectura (aunque yo diría que en un 80-85% está correctamente traducido. Quizás no debería ser yo tan exigente ;-) ) Y segundo es el formato. Al estar disponible solo en formato electrónico (PDF) te obliga a leerlo en el ordenador o a imprimirlo y encuadernarlo. Por otra parte, el que disponga de un iPad o Kindle disfrutará de leerlo aun más. Y otra ventaja de ser un pdf, es que te lo puedes descargar al instante y empezar a leerlo enseguida, sin tener que esperar a que te lo envíen por correo postal. Otra cosa que puede llevar a confusión es que junto a la imagen del libro hay un CD/DVD. Supongo que eso es para indicar que es un libro electrónico, pero no es que te vayan a enviar un DVD a casa. Que quede claro.
Pero como lo que más importa de un libro es su contenido, y no su forma, a partir de aquí escribiré todo lo que me ha gustado del libro del Sr.Russo.
Una de las cosas que más me gusta de este programa es su carácter holístico, es decir, que entiende al individuo en su totalidad, no solo como algo físico (emociones y pensamientos son también algo crítico a la hora de curarse y mantenerse sano). Aunque la mayoría del peso y recomendaciones del libro recaen sobre la parte física.
libro Revertir la diabetes
La primera parte del libro la considero de esencial lectura para todo el que quiera disfrutar de una vida con salud. Ese primer capítulo explica con claridad por qué a pesar de los importantes avances en ciencia y tecnología, la raza humana nunca ha estado tan enferma como ahora y nos alerta sobre cómo funciona el sistema sanitario, las compañías farmacéuticas, los medios de comunicación y los gobiernos en temas de salud y qué podemos hacer para protegernos.
Por poner un ejemplo de la situación actual: Los EE.UU., siendo el país que más billones gasta en sanidad, lidera el mundo desarrollado en muertes por enfermedades del corazón, cáncer de próstata, cáncer de mama, cáncer colorrectal y diabetes. Está claro que algo huele mal aquí. Muy mal!
“Creo  firmemente  que  si  todos  los  medicamentos  del  mundo  fueran  lanzados   al  mar,  sería  mucho  mejor  para  la  humanidad  y  mucho  peor  para  los  peces.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes, M. D. Profesor de Medicina en Harvard
Lo que nos lleva a una de las conclusiones más importantes según mi entender:nosotros somos responsables de nuestro cuerpo y nuestra salud. No podemos dejarlo 100% en manos de otros.
Como el Sr. Russo explica en el libro: “Vivimos en una hipnosis cultural que nos ha enseñado que somos frágiles. Hemos sido condicionados a creer que las cosas nos están sucediendo. Hemos sido condicionados culturalmente a sentirnos “en peligro” y con miedo continuo. Hemos sido condicionados a creer que los medicamentos son la respuesta a la enfermedad.
La verdad es que nuestro estado natural es uno estado de Fuerza, Salud y Energía.
Estamos programados genéticamente para ser completamente SALUDABLES y PROSPEROS.
La verdad es que la salud viene del interior, y también se pierde desde el interior.”
Según Sergio Russo, la enfermedad se produce cuando nos debilitamos internamente, es decir, cuando perdemos la energía nerviosa. Como consecuencia los órganos de eliminación no funcionan correctamente y los materiales de desecho se van acumulando en el cuerpo hasta que exceden el punto de tolerancia del cuerpo, entrando en una crisis, o lo que llamamos “enfermedad”. La enfermedad sería una reacción a todo ese exceso de materia venenosa acumulada y que tiene que sacar.
Una frase del libro que se me ha quedado grabada es: “la enfermedad es la manifestación del cuerpo tratando de curarse.”
Otro capítulo que considero importante del libro de Russo es el dedicado a la teoría de los gérmenes. Nos han hecho creer que los gérmenes, viruses y bacterias causan las enfermedades, o muchas de ellas. Pero como se demuestra en el libro, apoyado por las citas de algunos de los científicos más importantes que han existido, esa teoría es falsa. Llevándonos de nuevo a la idea de que nuestro estado físico y psíquico interno lo es todo. En pocas palabras, los gérmenes son el resultado, no la causa.

Los objetivos de la segunda parte del libro:

(textualmente):
  1.  Ayudarle a hacerse cargo de su salud y asumir la responsabilidad de las decisiones que toma
  2.  Liberarse de CUALQUIER enfermedad y crear una extraordinaria energía en su vida.
Para eso dedica una serie de capítulos como:
  • “La calidad de nuestras vidas depende de la calidad de nuestras células”. En él anuncia las 5 cosas que las células necesitan para poder prosperar.
  • “La alcalinidad es la clave para su salud” en el que expone que la mayoría de las enfermedades son causadas por el estado de acidez interior del cuerpo y qué hacer para recuperar la salud (por favor, no vayas a la farmacia a comprarte pastillas anti-acidez tras leer esto. No va por ahí)
  • “Las causas de las enfermedades específicas”
  • “La epidemia de diabetes”. Me extrañó mucho que hasta la página 118 no hablara en detalle sobre la diabetes, sobretodo teniendo en cuenta el título del libro (“Revertir la diabetes”). Pero después de haber leído el libro te das cuenta que todo lo anterior a este capítulo era necesario para poder concentrarse ahora en la diabetes.
  • “La innovadora solución para la diabetes”
  • “10 pasos para la cura de la diabetes.” Apoyado por las investigaciones y casos de éxito de importantes científicos de diferentes campos, asegura que “la diabetes tiene cura, y un sinnúmero de personas se ha curado, vuelven a una vida libre de diabetes, que no requiere de medicamentos o inyecciones de insulina. (Por cierto, incluso la Asociación Americana para la Diabetes, ahora finalmente admite que la diabetes se puede revertir.)”
De especial importancia para el Sr. Russo es la teoría del Dr. Robert O. Young (yo también estoy profundizando más sobre este tema y lo conseguido por este científico mundialmente conocido, y me estoy quedando asombrado) Es el único científico que he visto decir públicamente que la diabetes tipo 1 se puede curar. En este capítulo del libro hace un buen resumen de esta teoría y de cómo hacerla funcionar, a través de sus 10 pasos para la cura de la diabetes.
acidez/alcalinidad en la célulasSegún el Dr. Young, “la diabetes no es en verdad una enfermedad del páncreas o de las células beta productoras de insulina, o una respuesta autoinmune. La diabetes, más bien, es el resultado de una ruptura del delicado equilibrio del pH (base ácida) en los líquidos que rodean a las células del páncreas.” (lo que me recuerda que tengo que añadir otra causa más, la número 23, a mi artículo “Las 21 causas de la diabetes” ;-) )
En 2002 el Dr. Young realizó un estudio de seis meses controlando la diabetes del Tipo 1 y Tipo 2, y dice:
“En ambos utilicé alimentos alcalinos adecuados, ejercicio aeróbico, y suplementos nutricionales. En todos los casos, he encontrado que los sujetos que completaron el programa fueron capaces de disminuir o suspender la medicación. Que incluye el recortar su ingesta de insulina en más de un 50 por ciento, y en muchos casos la eliminación de la insulina por completo, en sólo tres meses. Así mismo, los participantes perdieron peso, disminuyeron la presión sanguínea y redujeron su colesterol total.”
Por último, enumera los pasos para convertir todo esto en nuestro nuevo estilo de vida (dicen que si haces algo por 21 días consecutivos se convierte en un hábito).
Ah, y en el apéndice del libro hay una tabla de alimentos alcalinos ordenados según el grado de alcalinidad/acidez muy útil y práctico!
Por supuesto, iré informando de los cambios que vaya notando en mi salud.
Por si queréis saber algo más sobre el autor, esta es una breve bio de Sergio Russo:
“Sergio Russo es un orador, experto en salud natural y autor de best-seller que enseña a la gente a mejorar dramáticamente su salud de manera natural, sin costosos y potencialmente peligrosos medicamentos recetados. Con más de 10 años de estudio sobre la nutrición y las verdaderas causas de la enfermedad y la salud, en su práctica privada de salud holística, entrena a sus pacientes hacia mayores niveles de salud y bienestar. Su trabajo ha ayudado a personas en todo el mundo a salir de las drogas recetadas y a adoptar estilos de vida saludables que hacen que la enfermedad y la dolencia simplemente desaparezcan.”
Para terminar os dejo con esta cita:

The Truth About Alkalizing Your Blood, Interstitial and Intracellular Fluids!

The following article is Dr. Robert O. Young’s rebuttal to Dr. Ben Kim’s felacous statements concerning the bio-electro/chemistry of the blood and tissues.
 

April 12, 2012

The Truth About Alkalizing Your Blood

Dr. Ben Kim states: Is it true that the foods and beverages you consume cause your blood to become more alkaline or acidic? Contrary to popular hype, the answer is: not to any significant degree.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The pH of blood and interstitial fluids are constantly being challenged with environmental, dietary, respiratory, and metabolic acids. The body deals with blood acids by eliminating these acids through the four channels of elimination (urination, perspiration, defecation and respiration) and the buffering of acids through the alkaline buffering system in order to maintain the delicate pH balance of the blood plasma and interstitial fluids at 7.365.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The pH of your blood is tightly regulated by a complex system of buffers that are continuously at work to maintain a range of 7.35 to 7.45, which is slightly more alkaline than pure water.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The pH of your extracellular fluids, which includes the blood plasma and the interstitial fluids are kept at a very narrow range at 7.365 to 7.385. Any pH measurement of blood plasma in excess of 7.385 indicates a condition of compensated acidosis and any pH measurement of blood plasma or interstitial fluids below 7.365 indicates a condition of decompensated acidosis.

Screen Shot 2018-11-25 at 10.08.28 AM

When the pH of the blood plasma increases above the 7.385 this is the result of the blood pushing environmental, dietary, respiratory and metabolic acids out into the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade as the blood is pulling alkaline mineral salts such as calcium ions from the bones or magnesium ions from the muscles to offset the increase of acids in the blood. It is always a sure sign that as the blood plasma is becoming more alkaline the interstitial fluids of  the colloidal connective tissues of the schade are becoming more acidic and this is the cause of ALL inflammatory and degenerative diseases.

When the body tissues, organs, cells, or the alkaline reserves (sodium, calcium, magnesium and potassium) become deficient in alkaline minerals the blood plasma pH will drop below the ideal 7.365 causing decompensated acidosis leading to hemolysis at a pH below 7.365 or a coma and/or death at a pH below 7.2.

Dr. Kim Ben states: If the pH of your blood falls below 7.35, the result is a condition called acidosis, a state that leads to central nervous system depression. Severe acidosis – where blood pH falls below 7.00 – can lead to a coma and even death.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: If pH of the blood plasma drops below 7.365 the result is called decompenated acidosis.  If the pH of the blood plasma stays at the ideal 7.365 this is called compensated acidosis. And if the pH of the blood plasma increases above the 7.365 this is called “latent tissue acidosis” in the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade.

The blood plasma pH always goes alkaline when the blood pushes out environmental, dietary, respiratory or metabolic acids out into the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade. These acids are always deposited into what I call the ‘acid catchers’ which are the connective tissues of the schade. This leads to what I call ‘latent tissue acidosis’.

As acids build-up in the colloidal connective tissues of the schade and if NOT eliminated by the lymphatic system and the out through the channels of elimination, including the skin, lungs, bowels or urine this will result in ALL the connective tissue diseases and degenerative diseases, including ALL cancerous conditions.

Dr. Kim Ben states: If the pH of your blood rises above 7.45, the result is alkalosis. Severe alkalosis can also lead to death, but through a different mechanism; alkalosis causes all of the nerves in your body to become hypersensitive and over-excitable, often resulting in muscle spasms, nervousness, and convulsions; it’s usually the convulsions that cause death in severe cases.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: If the blood plasma pH increases over 7.385 you are in a state of ‘latent tissue acidosis’ of the interstitial fluids on the colloidal connective tissue of the shade and a high risk for cancer. This is what I call the “tee-ter-totter effect”. The body is pulling alkaline minerals into the blood to compensate for an equal amount of acids being pushed out into the interstitial fluids of the connective tissues of the schade to keep the blood plasma in an alkaline state. The result is tissue acidosis which then leads to hypersensitivity and over-excitable nerves, muscle spasms, nervousness and convulsions that can lead to coma or even death.  All of these symptoms are NOT a result of too much base or alkalinity but the result of too much acid from the blood being deposited into the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade. The cause of ‘latent tissue acidosis’ is caused by an acidic lifestyle and dietary choices.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The bottom line is that if you’re breathing and going about your daily activities, your body is doing an adequate job of keeping your blood pH somewhere between 7.35 to 7.45, and the foods that you are eating are not causing any wild deviations of your blood pH.

Dr. Robert O. Young: The bottom line is when you understand that having an acidic lifestyle and diet does affect the blood plasma and interstitial fluid pH in a negative way.

The blood responds to increased acids from lifestyle and diet by pushing them out into the interstitial fluids of the connective tissues or the colloidal connective tissues of the schade. The foods you eat, the liquids you drink, the air you breath, even your thoughts will effect the pH of blood and then the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues. The blood is constantly responding to the acidic wastes of lifestyle and diet choices!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Kim Ben stated: So what’s up with all the hype about the need to alkalize your body? And what’s to be made of the claim that being too acidic can cause osteoporosis, kidney stones, and a number of other undesirable health challenges?

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The hype about alkalizing your blood and then interstitial fluids of the connective tissues is important because the human body is alkaline by design and acidic by function. This is the foundation for understanding the true cause of ALL sickness and disease.

Dr. Kim Ben states: As usual, the answers to such questions about human health can be found in understanding basic principles of human physiology. So let’s take a look at the fundamentals of pH and how your body regulates the acid-alkaline balance of its fluids on a moment-to-moment basis.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The problems with current understanding of the basic principals of human physiology is the basic principals do NOT understand that the human body is alkaline by design and acidic by function. Current medical savants DO NOT understand that there is only one health, one sickness, one disease and one treatment. The one health is to maintain the alkaline design of the blood and interstitial fluids of the connective tissues with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. The one sickness and one 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 restore the alkaline design of the body fluids with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. Remember the fish bowl metaphor? It goes like this – When the fish is sick what would you do? Treat the fish or change the water? Remember the fish is only as healthy as the water it swims in.

Dr. Kim Ben states: pH is a measure of how acidic or alkaline a liquid is. With respect to your health, the liquids involved are your body fluids, which can be categorized into two main groups:

  1. Intracellular fluid, is the fluid found in all of your cells. Intracellular fluid is often called cytosol, and makes up about two-thirds of the total amount of fluid in your body.

  2. Extracellular fluid, is the fluid found outside of your cells. Extracellular fluids are further classified as one of two types:

    • Plasma, which is fluid that makes up your blood.
    • Interstitial fluid, which occupies all of the spaces that surround your tissues. Interstitial fluid includes the fluids found in your eyes, lymphatic system, joints, nervous system, and between the protective membranes that surround your cardiovascular, respiratory, and abdominal cavities.

      Your blood (plasma) needs to maintain a pH of 7.35 to 7.45 for your cells to function properly. Why your cells require your blood to maintain a pH in this range to stay healthy is beyond the scope of this article, but the most important reason is that all of the proteins that work in your body have to maintain a specific geometric shape to function, and the three-dimensional shapes of the proteins in your body are affected by the tiniest changes in the pH of your body fluids.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: pH is a measurement of the concentrations of hydrogen and hydroxyl ions in a aqueous solution. Any aqueous solutions, including your blood plasma interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade (the largest organ of the human body) and the intracellular fluids that are saturated in hydrogen ions is less or more acidic and any aqueous solution that is saturated in hydroxyl ions is less or more base or alkaline.

Once again, the human body is alkaline in its design and acidic in its function. Your blood plasma and interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissue of the schade needs to be maintained at a delicate pH of 7.365 for your cells to function properly.

I have found in my own blood research that when your pH is stable at 7.365 you find healthy blood which is even in color, even in size and even in shape. The red blood cell is the primary stem cell which becomes all other body cells. And the health of the blood and the interstitial fluid of the colloidal connective tissues of the shcade is directly connected to the health of all body cells. It is blood that becomes, liver, heart, brain and skin cells. All red blood cells and then body cells are made up of microzymas.

Microzymas are the foundational, indestructable matter and intelligent matter that makes up all living cells, including the DNA. The tiniest changes in the pH of the body fluids can cause the microzymas in the red blood cells or body cells to change into bacteria, yeast and/or mold. This is how germs are created – from within NOT from without.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. A liquid that has a pH of 7 is considered to be neutral (pure water is generally considered to have a neutral pH). Fluids that have a pH below 7 – like lemon juice and coffee – are considered to be acidic. And fluids that have a pH above 7 – like human blood and milk of magnesia – are considered to be alkaline.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 with the pH of 7 being the midpoint (pure water may have a pH of 7 but I have found that the pH of pure water has a range of 6.2 to 7.2 – a 10 times exponential swing. I have also found that pure water has an oxidative reduction potential in a range of +50mV to +150mV) which will drain energy from the body. Lemon is an alkaline fruit not an acidic fruit. This is because of its low sugar and high alkaline mineral content of potassium bicarbonate. Lemons do not draw down on the alkaline buffering system and contributes in excess of 10 times in hydroxyl ions (OH-) in relationship to its hydrogen ion content.

Dr. Kim Ben states: It’s important to note that on the pH scale, each number represents a tenfold difference from adjacent numbers; in other words, a liquid that has a pH of 6 is ten times more acidic than a liquid that has a pH of 7, and a liquid with a pH of 5 is one hundred times more acidic than pure water.  Most carbonated soft drinks (pop) have a pH of about 3, making them about ten thousand times more acidic than pure water. Please remember this the next time you think about drinking a can of pop.

When you ingest foods and liquids, the end products of digestion and assimilation of nutrients often results in an acid or alkaline-forming effect – the end products are sometimes called acid ash or alkaline ash.

Dr. Robert O. Young states – All food and drink which has a pH of less than 8.4 will cause the production of sodium bicarbonate by the stomach and the release of this sodium bicarbonate via the salivary glands, the pylorus glands, the pancreas, gall bladder and intestinal glands to alkalize whatever ingested. The main purpose of stomach is to prepare the food in a liquid state at a pH of 8.4 for biological transformation into stem cells which takes place in the crypts of the small intestines.

Dr. Kim Ben states: Also, as your cells produce energy on a continual basis, a number of different acids are formed and released into your body fluids. These acids – generated by your everyday metabolic activities – are unavoidable; as long as your body has to generate energy to survive, it will produce a continuous supply of acids.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: Metabolism produces acidic waste products of lactic, uric, citric and glucose if not eliminated will cause dis-ease and then disease. You are only as healthy as the alkaline fluids of the body which includes the extracellular and intracellular fluids.

Dr. Kim Ben states: So there are two main forces at work on a daily basis that can disrupt the pH of your body fluids – these forces are the acid or alkaline-forming effects of foods and liquids that you ingest, and the acids that you generate through regular metabolic activities. Fortunately, your body has three major mechanisms at work at all times to prevent these forces from shifting the pH of your blood outside of the 7.35 to 7.45 range.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: There are seven main sources at work on a daily basis that can disrupt the pH of your body fluids – these forces include acids from the external environment, acids from the foods and liquids ingested, acids from the air you breath, acids from metabolism, acids from cells breaking down or catobolic acitivity, acids from endogenous bacteria, yeast and mold, and acids from respiration. Your body has an elaborate alkalizing buffering system at work at all times to help prevent through chelaton these forces from shifting the pH of the blood plasma pH as well as the interstitial fluid pH at a delicate pH of 7.365. It is important to note that when the alkaline buffering system (a new organ discovered by Dr. Robert O. Young) becomes depleted and acids are being deposited into the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues and the fatty tissues this is when dis-ease and eventual disease manifests.

Dr. Kim Ben states:

These mechanisms are:

  1. Buffer Systems

    • Carbonic Acid-Bicarbonate Buffer System
    • Protein Buffer System
    • Phosphate Buffer System
  2. Exhalation of Carbon Dioxide
  3. Elimination of Hydrogen Ions via Kidneys
 
Dr. Robert O. Young states: There are ten (10) mechanisms that the body engages to buffer excess acids from lifestyle and dietary choices that are NOT properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination (bowels, kidney, skin and lungs):
1) The sodium bicarbonate system – the main organ of production is the stomach. The stomach is the major organ for sodium bicarbonate production for alkalizing food and maintaining the alkaline pH of the blood, tissues and organs.
2) The hemoglobin buffering system – the hemoglobin is a secondary alkalizing buffer for the blood when there is insufficient elements for the production of the primary buffer, sodium bicarbonate. This is the main cause of ALL blood diseases and why most all the client/patients I see have to a lesser or greater degree anemic and unhealthy blood.
3) The pHosphate buffering system which buffers acids creating phosphoric acid which is then excreted via the urine.
4) The ammonia buffering system reacts with hydrogen ions or acids to form ammonium ions which are excreted into the urine.
5) The plasma protein buffering system helps to chelate acids. The most plentiful type of buffer in the body including glutathione, methionine, cysteine and taurine which are found in the cells, lymph fluid and plasma.  Most plasma protein activity occurs intracellularly to bind or neutralize acids during cellular metabolism and/or disorganization or transformation of the human cell.
6) The electrolyte buffering system which includes the alkalizing mineral salts of sodium, magnesium, potassium and calcium. The chelation of any acid will form a less toxic solid or a stone in the body. All stones and cysts and tumors are the result of excess acids in the extra and intracellular fluids. The electrolyte or mineral buffers work in the blood, lymph, extracellular (blood plasma and interstitial fluids) and intracellular fluids to bind acids which are then removed via the urine. These four elements are recycled by the kidneys into the blood and lymph by binding them to CO2. Over 90 percent of the CO2 produced in the body through cellular fermentation in the production of energy is used to carry out this recycling process.
7) The low density lipo-protein buffering system also referred to as cholesterol works primarily as a binder of acids in the blood, lymph, and extracellular fluids which are then excreted via the urine. If elimination is compromised the fat bound acids are removed away from the organs that sustain life into the body cavities, hips, thighs, buttocks and abdominal area. This is the cause of over-weight and obesity.
8) The endocrine buffering system releases hormones to buffer acids. These hormones include the antidiuretic hormone which regulates the rate at which water is lost or retained by the body and aldosterone which regulates the level of sodium ions and potassium ions in the blood. These two alkaline secretions help the kidneys maintain the alkaline design of the body and reduce excess acidity thus creating pH balance in the body.
9) The release of free radicals or reduced hydrogen (OH- and SO-) by the lymphocytes to buffer excess acids in the blood, interstitial and intracellular fluids.
10) The retention of alkaline water to buffer excess acids in the colloidal connective tissues of the schade. This is the cause of edema or water retention.
Dr. Kim Ben states: It’s not in the scope of this post to discuss the mechanisms listed above in detail. For this article, I only want to point out that these systems are in place to prevent dietary, metabolic, and other factors from pushing the pH of your blood outside of the 7.35 to 7.45 range.
Dr. Robert O. Young states: The blood can be stressed from dietary and metabolic acids which are eliminated through the four channels of elimination or buffered by the ten alkalizing buffering mechanisms to maintain the delicate blood plasma, interstitial and intracellular pH at a healthy 7.365.

Dr. Kim Ben states: When people encourage you to “alkalize your blood,” most of them mean that you should eat plenty of foods that have an alkaline-forming effect on your system. The reason for making this suggestion is that the vast majority of highly processed foods – like white flour products and white sugar – have an acid-forming effect on your system, and if you spend years eating a poor diet that is mainly acid-forming, you will overwork some of the buffering systems mentioned above to a point where you could create undesirable changes in your health.

Dr. Robert O. Young states; Everything you eat, everything you drink, everything you breath, everything you think and everything you do affects the blood and interstitial fluids in an acidic way to a lesser or greater degree. That is why we age. We do not get old we mold from years of acidic lifestyle and dietary choices. The key to a healthy life or a life of sickness and disease and then eventual death is in the blood! Especially the blood plasma.

Dr. Kim Ben states: For example, your phosphate buffer system uses different phosphate ions in your body to neutralize strong acids and bases. About 85% of the phosphate ions that are used in your phosphate buffer system comes from calcium phosphate salts, which are structural components of your bones and teeth. If your body fluids are regularly exposed to large quantities of acid-forming foods and liquids, your body will draw upon its calcium phosphate reserves to supply your phosphate buffer system to neutralize the acid-forming effects of your diet. Over time, this may lead to structural weakness in your bones and teeth.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: Dr Kim Ben has described the cause of bone loss correctly. It is important to remember that the activation of the pHosphate buffering system does not happen when you are on an alkalizing lifestyle and diet and hyper-perfusing the blood and interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues with alkalinity.  The alkaline lifestyle and diet is outlined in my book, The pH Miracle Revised and Updated.

Drawing on your calcium phosphate reserves at a high rate can also increase the amount of calcium that is eliminated via your genito-urinary system, which is why a predominantly acid-forming diet can increase your risk of developing calcium-rich kidney stones.

Dr. Ken Ben states: This is just one example of how your buffering systems can be overtaxed to a point where you experience negative health consequences. Since your buffering systems have to work all the time anyway to neutralize the acids that are formed from everyday metabolic activities, it’s in your best interest to follow a diet that doesn’t create unnecessary work for your buffering systems.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The protocol that will NOT unnecessarily activate the alkaline buffering systems of the body is outlined in the pH Miracle Revised and Updated by Dr. Robert O. Young.

Dr. Kim Ben states: Generally speaking, most vegetables and fruit have an alkaline-forming effect on your body fluids.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: Generally, all green fruit and vegetables are the ONLY alkalizing foods for the blood and interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues and are critical in building healthy blood and then healthy body cells.

Dr. Kim Ben states: Most grains, animal foods, and highly processed foods have an acid-forming effect on your body fluids.

Dr. Robert O. Young states; All grains, animal foods, dairy products, fermented foods, algae, probiotics, enzymes, high sugar fruit, high sugar vegetables, vinegar, corn, nuts, mushrooms, alcohol, carbonate drinks, sport drinks and tobacco products are acidic to the blood and interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade (the largest organ of the body) and will activate the alkaline buffering systems.

Dr. Kim Ben states: Your health is best served by a good mix of nutrient-dense, alkaline andacid-forming foods; ideally, you want to eat more alkaline-forming foods than acid-forming foods to have the net acid and alkaline-forming effects of your diet match the slightly alkaline pH of your blood.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The only way to achieve extraordinary health and fitness is with the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet as outlined in The pH Miracle Revised and Updated book.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The following lists indicate which common foods have an alkaline-forming effect on your body fluids, and which ones result in acid ash formation when they are digested and assimilated into your system.

Please note that these lists of acid and alkaline-forming foods are not comprehensive, nor are they meant to be.

If you’re eating mainly grains, flour products, animal foods, and washing these foods down with coffee, soda, and milk, you will almost certainly improve your health by replacing some of your food and beverage choices with fresh vegetables and fruits.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The four alkalizing food groups are chlorophyll from green fruit and green vegetables, mono and polyunsaturated oils, alkalizing water and finally alkalizing mineral salts. I call this the COWS Plan as outlined in The pH Miracle Revised and Updated book.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The primary purpose of this article is to offer information that explains why I believe that you don’t need to take one or more nutritional supplements or “alkalized water” for the sole purpose of alkalizing your body. Your body is already designed to keep the pH of your body fluids in a tight, slightly alkaline range.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: Your body is alkaline by design but acidic by function and that is why you would be wise to follow an alkaline lifestyle and diet to prevent ALL sickness and disease and remain strong, healthy and fit. Drinking alkaline water is essential to maintaining the healthy alkaline state of ALL your body fluids!!!!!!

Dr. Kim Ben states: The ideal scenario is to make fresh vegetables and fruits the centerpieces of your diet, and to eat small amounts of any other nutrient-dense foods that your appetite calls for and that experience shows your body can tolerate.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The ideal scenario is to make fresh organic electron-rich green alkalizing fruit and vegetables the centerpiece of your diet with liberal amounts of alkalizing polyunsaturated oils, alkalizing water at a pH of 9.5 and finally alkalizing mineral salts of sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium.

Acidic Statin Use Linked to Increased Risk for Diabetes in Women and Men According to a U.S. Study

<span class="articleLocatio

n”>Cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins may be linked to an increased risk of diabetes in middle-aged and older women and men, according to a U.S. study.

The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, found that among the thousands of women and men looked at, those who reported using any kind of statin at the start of the six- to seven-year study that women were nearly 50 percent more likely and men 12 percent more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes than those not taking statins.

“Statin medication use in postmenopausal women is associated with an increased risk for diabetes mellitus,” wrote Yunsheng Ma of the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, and his colleagues.

Knowing how to lower cholesterol naturally by reducing metabolic and dietary acid is now more important than ever due to the ever increasing reports of acidic negative side effects from using statin drugs. A new study published January 23, 2012 in the Archives of Internal Medicine (4), showed almost a 50% increase in developing diabetes in women and a 12% increase in developing diabetes in men who take statin drugs.

Dr Robert O. Young states, “cholesterol is created by the body to buffer or neutralize excess metabolic and dietary acids to protect the glands and organs that sustain life. In other words, cholersterol is good not bad and protects the body from sickness and dis-ease. And, finally, dietary, respiratory, environmental and metabolic acids are the true and only culprits that cause the symptoms of high blood pressure, obesity, low energy, artherosclerosis and diabetes.”

How to lower cholesterol naturally is the question millions of Americans suffering from statin drug side effects are asking. Now, a large study published just last week comprised of 153,000 women in their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s shows that taking statin drugs puts women at a much higher risk of developing diabetes. The authors looked at the question of increased diabetes in statin users in the Women’s Health Initiative observational analysis. During follow-up, more than 10,000 cases of diabetes were diagnosed. A lead author, Dr. Yunsheng Ma who led the study stated, “We found that statin therapy — statins of all types — were associated with a 48% increased risk for diabetes in women…and 10 to 12% increased risk for diabe tes in men…”.

Due to these ever increasing rates of side effects many doctors have solved the question of how to lower cholesterol naturally by lower dietary and metabolic acids by recommending an alternative to statin drugs called L-Arginine Plus, containing thirteen all natural ingredients including; ultra pure L–Arginine, L-Ornithine, L-Citrulline, Magnesium Chloride, CO-enzyme Q10, Resveratrol, Pomegranate, Grape Seed, Vitamin C, Viatmin D3, Vitamine K, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B9 and Vitamin B12, not only lowers cholesterol but also helps to lower high blood pressure and regulate blood sugars in diabetics.

How To Prevent, Halt or Reverse Diabetes Type II and Type I

Warning: Dangerous Diabetes Drugs
Don’t Work
How to Prevent, Halt or Reverse Diabetes with Methods
That Are Natural, Easy … and Virtually Free

Diabetes Drugs Don't Work D iabetes is the number-one lifestyle disease of modern times, and tens of millions of Americans are being handed prescriptions for anti-diabetic drugs thatdon’t work. A large-scale study at Duke University School of Medicine and published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that despite serious risks and dangerous side effects, diabetes drugs offer few benefits and simply don’t live up to their claims

Duke researchers found that the combination of the blood-pressure drug Diovan (valsartan) and the anti-diabetes drug Starlix (nateglinide) failed to reduce risk of heart attack at all and that Diovan was only slightly successful in slowing — but not necessarily preventing — development of type 2 diabetes.

Furthermore, practically all anti-diabetic drugs result in weight gain and eventual total dependency upon insulin injections, according to researchers Krentz, Nichols, and Gomez-Caminero in 2 recent articles published in Current Medical Research Opinion and Diabetes Obesity Metabolism.

Lead researcher Robert Califf of the Duke study said, “This is a sobering confirmation of the need to continue to focus on lifestyle improvements.”

Unfortunately, the medical mainstream has failed miserably to help diabetic patients reverse their diabetes naturally. This failure is inexcusable considering that anyone can reverse type 2 diabetes and stop type 1 diabetes in its tracks in less than 4 weeks with the right plan — a plan that….

  • Gets your blood sugar under control in 4 weeks
  • Prevent or reverse type 1 diabetes
  • Prevent or reverse type 2 diabetes
  • Eliminates dependence on diabetes drugs
  • Is so inexpensive that it’s almost free
  • Is simple and easy to use
  • Has already helped clients and former diabetics all over the world
  • Prevent and/or reverse diabetes, pre-diabetes, syndrome X, and blood sugar woes

Unfortunately, very few diabetics know what actually does work. And that’s because most doctors simply lack the necessary training and knowledge to steer their patients in the right direction.

Too many doctors don’t even discuss nutrition with their patients, and those who do often make matters worse by advising overly restrictive diets orunrealistic amounts of exercise. A recent paper published by the Society for Biomedical Diabetes Research says, “Diabetic patients encounter . . . confusing and contradictory advice from a variety of sources.”

As a result, diabetic patients “exhibit restrictive eating behaviors, they express feelings of dietary deprivation, and rigid dietary control is perceived as the only way to a proper diet and weight management. Binge eating, [excessive] restraint, and body dissatisfaction frequently occur among these patients.”

So if you’ve tried and failed to manage your diabetes naturally, it’s not your fault! Doctors and the media do more to confuse than to clarify, and meanwhile the diabetes freight train leaves a staggering path of heartbreaking consequences in its path, such as the following:

  • Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, nontraumatic lower-limb amputations, and new cases of blindness among adults in the United States.
  • Diabetes is a major cause of heart disease and stroke.
  • Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States.
  • A new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that at the rate things are going, as many as 1 in 3 U.S. adults will have diabetes by 2050.

“These are alarming numbers that show how critical it is to change the course of type 2 diabetes,” said Ann Albright, Ph.D., director of the CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation. “Successful programs to improve lifestyle choices on healthy eating and physical activity must be made more widelyavailable, because the stakes are too high and the personal toll too devastating to fail.”

The key phrase here is successful programs. To succeed you need to know exactly how to eat the alkaline and energizing foods you love — and feel satisfied, while still banishing the symptoms of diabetes. And you need to know about inexpensive alkalizing supplements that help you slash your blood sugar effortlessly, such as . . .

==> The simple alkalizing minerals that lower diabetes risk. Researchers at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill conducted a 20-year study of 4,497 people and found that the risk of diabetes was 47% lower among participants with the highest intake of this mineral than among those with the lowest.

==> A well-loved spice that slashes blood sugar. Test subjects took as little as 1/4 teaspoon of this common spice daily, and nearly all subjects with diabetes showed substantial improvement. And the spice and diabetes were clearly connected because when the spice was no longer consumed, volunteers’ blood sugar levels started to rise again.

Obviously, a spice and a mineral alone aren’t going to single-handedly reverse your diabetes permanently, but such powerful alkalizing supplements combined with the right effective, easy, and inexpensive natural healing methods can put you on your way to ending diabetes. No drug in the world can do that, no matter what Big Pharma promises. In fact, drugs are often worse than ineffective — they can even make your life miserable or even be more risky than diabetes itself.

Consider the drug Avandia, once the most popular diabetes drug in the world, which was found in 2008 to dramatically increase risk of heart attacksand death. It took the FDA until last month to finally pull Avandia from the U.S. market.

Another popular diabetes drug, Actos, has its own array of ugly side effects, including average weight gain of nearly 9 pounds and a higher risk of dangerous and possibly deadly fluid buildups. Furthermore, Actos’s heart risks may be almost as bad as Avandia’s, and some researchers have linked this drug to bladder cancer.

A handful of doctors are getting behind the push to educate patients about what really works to cure diabetes. Dr. Scott Saunders. M.D., says natural approaches are the key. “Studying natural medicine is power,” he says, explaining that you can absolutely reverse your diabetes yourself with simple steps that …

Are fast, painless, safe, and natural
Based on proven home remedies
Have zero negative side effects
Will help you save thousands of dollars in medical bills, drugs, and hospital stays
Will free you from stress and fear of diabetic symptoms
Can halt the degenerative side effects of diabetes
Are safe for type 1 & type 2 diabetes
Will improve your overall health and immune system

If you suffer from diabetes or pre-diabetes, you cannot afford to ignore the truth about how to stop this dangerous degenerative disease. Diabetes can kill you … if you let it.

But the good news is you don’t have to let that happen. And you don’t have to fear blindness, heart disease, chronic wounds that won’t heal, or even amputation. And you definitely don’t have to rely on expensive, dangerous drugs that don’t work! You can prevent and/or reverse your diabetes in less than a month when you watch a free, informative video, and see how to fix the real cause of your diabetes … using natural, safe, and easy methods that are virtually free.

Now you can empower yourself with cutting edge information on healing yourself or your loved ones of diabetes. Watch these free videos and learn to prevent, halt or reverse your diabetes.

Why Eating Meat and Cheese Is Making Your Body Dangerously Over-Acid Leading To Sickness and Disease Including Diabetes and/or Cancer!

 

Twenty-Five Scientific Points In Understanding Dr. Young’s “New Biology” and Why Eating Meat and Cheese Is Making Your Body Dangerously Over-Acid Leading To Sickness and Disease Including Diabetes and Cancer!

The following scientific discourse are twenty-five important points to understand concerning the creation of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) and hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach lining, the ingestion of protein, cheese and sugar in any form and how acid/alkaline biochemistry, physiology, and anatomy relate to health, sickness, and disease.

Unfortunately, contemporary medical doctors and scientists as well as alternative health practitioners do not understand how acid/base are created in the body and the onset of latent tissue acidosis in the colloidal connective tissue or the “Schade”. Welcome to the 21st century and Dr. Young’s “New Biology.”

How is acid/base created in the body?

1) The parietal or cover cells of the stomach split the sodium chloride of the blood. The sodium is used to bind with water and carbon dioxide to form the alkaline salt, sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3. The biochemistry is: H20 + CO2 + NaCl = NaHCO3 + HCL. This is why a call the stomach an alkalizing organ NOT an organ of digestion. The stomach DOES NOT digest the food or liquids you ingest it alkalizes the food and liquid you ingest.

2) For each molecule of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) made, a molecule of hydrochloric acid (HCL) is made and secreted into the so-called digestive system – specifically, the stomach (the gastric pits in the stomach) – to be eliminated. Therefore HCL is an acidic waste product of sodium bicarbonate created by the stomach to alkalize the food and liquids ingested.

3) The chloride ion from the sodium chloride (salt) binds to an acid or proton forming HCL as a waste product of sodium bicarbonate production. HCL has a pH of 1 and is highly toxic to the body and the cause of indigestion, acid reflux, ulcers and cancer.

4) When large amounts of acids, including HCL, enter the stomach from a rich animal protein or dairy product meal, such as meat and cheese, acid is withdrawn from the acid-base household. The organism would die if the resulting alkalosis – or NaHCO3 (base flood) or base surplus – created by the stomach was not taken up by the alkalophile glands that need these quick bases in order to build up their strong sodium bicarbonate secretions. These glands and organs are the stomach, pancreas, Brunner’s glands (between the pylorus and the junctions of the bile and pancreatic ducts), Lieberkuhn’s glands in the liver and its bile with its strong acid binding capabilities which it has to release on the highly acidic meat and cheese to buffer its strong acids of nitric, sulphuric, phosphoric, uric and lactic acids.

5) When a rich animal protein and dairy product meal is ingested, the stomach begins to manufacture and secrete sodium bicarbonate (NHCO3) to alkalize the acids from the food ingested. This causes a loss in the alkaline reserves and an increase in acid and/or HCL found in the gastric pits of the stomach. These acids and/or HCL are taken up by the blood which lowers blood plasma pH. The blood eliminates this increase in gastrointestinal acid by throwing it off into the Pishinger’s spaces.

6) The space enclosed by these finer and finer fibers is called the Pishinger’s space, or the extracellular space that contains the fluids that bath and feed each and every cell while carrying away the acidic waste from those same cells. There is no mention of this organ in American physiology text books. There is mention of the extracellular space but not of any organ that stores acids from metabolism and diet, like the kidney. I call this organ the “pre-kidney” because it stores metabolic and gastrointestinal acids until they can be buffered and eliminated via the skin, urinary tract, or bowels.

7) After a rich animal protein or dairy product meal, the urine pH becomes alkaline. The ingestion of meat and cheese causes a reaction in acidic fashion in the organism by the production of sulfuric, phosporhoric, nitric, uric, lactic, acetylaldehyde and ethanol acids, respectively, but also through the formation and excretion of base in the urine. Therefore eating meat and cheese causes a double loss of bases leading to tissue acidosis and eventual disease, especially inflammation and degenerative diseases.

8) During heavy exercise, if the the resulting lactic acid was not adsorbed by the collagen fibers, the specific acid catchers of the body, the organism would die. The total collection of these fibers is the largest organ of the body called SCHADE, the colloidal connective tissue organ. NO liquid exchange occurs between the blood and the parenchyma cells, or in reverse, unless it passes through this connective tissue organ. This organ connects and holds everything in our bodies in place. This organ is composed of ligaments, tendons, sinew, and the finer fibers that become the scaffolding that holds every single cell in our bodies in place. When acids are stored in this organ, which includes the muscles, inflammation and pain develop. The production of lactic acid is increased with the ingestion of milk, cheese, yogurt, butter and especially ice cream.

That is why I have stated, “acid is pain and pain is acid.” You cannot have one without the other. This is the beginning of latent tissue acidosis leading to irritation, inflammation and degeneration of the cells, tissues and organs.

 

9) The more acidity created from eating meat, cheese, milk or ice cream the more gastrointestinal acids are adsorbed into the the collagen fibers to be neutralized and the less sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3 that is taken up by the alkalophile glands. The larger the potential difference between the adsorbed acids and the amount of NaHCO3 generated with each meal, the more or less alkaline are the alkalophile glands like the pancreas, gallbladder, pylorus glands, blood, etc. The acid binding power of the connective tissue, the blood, and the alkalophile glands depends on its alkali reserve, which can be determined through blood, urine, and saliva pH, including live and dried blood analysis as taught by Dr. Robert O. Young. The saliva pH is an indication of alkali reserves in the alkalophile glands and the urine pH is an indication of the pH of the fluids that surround the cells or the Pishinger’s space.

10) The iso-structure of the blood maintains the pH of the blood by pushing off gastrointestinal or metabolic acids into the connective tissue or the Pishinger’s space. The blood gives to the urine the same amount of acid that it receives from the tissues and liver so it can retain its iso-form. A base deficiency is always related to the deterioration of the deposit ability of the connective tissues or the Pishinger’s space. As long as the iso-structure of the blood is maintained, the urine – which originates from the blood – remains a faithful reflected image of the acid-base regulation, not of the blood, but of the tissues. The urine therefore is an excretion product of the tissues, not the blood. So when you are testing the pH of the urine, you are testing the pH of the tissues.

11) A latent “acidosis” is the condition that exists when there are not enough bases in the alkalophile glands because they have been used up in the process of neutralizing the acids adsorbed to the collagen fibers. This leads to compensated “acidosis.” This means the blood pH has not changed but other body systems have changed. This can then lead to decompensated “acidosis” where the alkaline reserves of the blood are used up and the pH of the blood is altered. Decompensated “acidosis” can be determined by testing the blood pH, urine pH and the saliva pH. The decrease in the alkaline reserves in the body occurs because of hyper-proteinization, (eating Meat and Cheese!)or too much protein, and hyper-carbonization, or too much sugar. This is why 80 to 90 year old folks are all shrunk up and look like prunes. They have very little or no alkaline reserves in their alkalophile glands. When all the alkaline minerals are gone, so are you and your battery runs down. The charge of your cellular battery can be measured by testing the ORP or the oxidative reduction potential of the blood, urine or saliva using an ORP meter. As you become more acidic this energy potential or ORP increases.

12) If there is not enough base left over after meat and cheese or surgary meal, or enough base to neutralize and clear the acids stored in the connective tissues, a relative base deficiency develops which leads to latent tissue acidosis. When this happens the liver and pancreas are deficient of adequate alkaline juices to ensure proper alkalization of the food in your stomach and small intestine.

13) Digestion or alkalization cannot proceed without enough of these alkaline juices for the liver and pancreas, etc., and so the stomach has to produce more acid in order to make enough base, ad nauseam, and one can develop indigestion, nausea, acid reflux, GERD, ulcers, esophageal cancer and stomach cancer. All of these symptoms are not the result of too much acid or HCL in the stomach. On the contrary, it is the result of too little base in the form of sodium bicarbonate!

14) Therefore the stomach is NOT an organ of digestion as currently taught in ALL biology and medical texts, BUT an organ of contribution or deposit. It’s function is to deposit alkaline juices to the stomach to alkalize the food and to the blood to carry to the alklophile glands!!!!

15) There is a daily rhythm to this acid base ebb and flow of the fluids of the body. The stored acids are mobilized from the connective tissues and Pishinger’s spaces while we sleep.
These acids reach their maximum (base tide) concentration in this fluid, and thereby the urine (around 2 a.m. is the most acidic). The acid content of the urine directly reflects the acid content of the fluid in the Pishinger’s spaces, the extracellular fluid compartments of the body. On the other hand, the Pishinger’s spaces become most alkaline around 2 p.m. (the base flood) as then the most sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) is being generated by the cover cells of the stomach to alkalize the food and drink we have ingested.

16) If your urine is not alkaline by 2 p.m. you are definitely in an ACIDIC condition and lacking in alkaline reserves. The pH of the urine should run between 6.8 and 8.4 but ideally 7.2 or greater.

17) After a high protein meal or meat or cheese, the free acids formed such as sulfuric, phosphoric, uric, and nitric acids stick to the collagen fibers to remove them from the blood and protect the delicate pH of the blood at 7.365. The H+ or proton ions from these acids are neutralized by the next base flood, the sodium bicarbonate produced after the meal. The H+ or proton ion combines with the carbonate or HCO3, converts to carbonic acid, H2CO3, which converts to CO2 and H2O. The sulfuric and other acids from proteins are neutralized as follows where the HR represents any acid with the R as its acid radical (SO4, PO4, or NO3) HR + NaHCO3 H2O + NaR (Ca, Mg, K)+ CO2.

18) Medical doctors and savants are not taught in medical school and therefore do not understand or recognize latent tissue acidosis. They understand and recognize compensated acidosis and decompensated acidosis. In compensated acidosis, breathing increases in order to blow off more carbonic acid which decreases PCO2 because of the lowered carbonate or HCO3. When the breathing rate can no longer get any faster and when the kidneys can no longer increase its’ function to keep up with the acid load, then the blood pH starts to change from a pH of 7.365 to 7.3 then to 7.2. At a blood pH of 6.95 the heart relaxes and the client goes into a coma or dies.

19) Metabolism of a normal adult diet results in the generation of 50 to 100 meq of H+ or proton per day, which must be excreted if the urine acid-base balance is to be maintained. A meq is a milliequivalent which is an expression of concentration of substance per liter of solution, calculated by dividing the concentration in milligrams per 100 milliliters by the molecular weight. This process involves two basis steps; 1) the reabsorption of the filtered sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3 and, 2) excretion of the 50 to 100 meq of H+ or proton produced each day by the formation of titratable acidity and NH4+ or ammonium. Both steps involve H+ or proton secretion from the cells of the kidney into the urine.

20) Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) must be reabsorbed into the blood stream, since the loss of NaHCO3 will increase the net acid load and lower the plasma NaHCO3 concentration. The loss of NaHCO3 in the urine is equivalent to the addition of H+ to the body since both are derived from the dissociation of H2CO3 or carbonic acid.

21) The biochemistry is: CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 = HCO3 + H+. The normal subject must reabsorb 4300 meq of NaHCO3 each day! The secreted H+ or proton ions are generated within the kidney cells from the dissociation of H2O or water. This process also results in the equimolar production OH- or hydroxyl ions. The OH- ions bind to the active zinc-containing site of the intracellular carbonic anhydrase; they then combine with CO2 to form HCO3- ions which are released back into the kidney cells and returned to the systemic circulation. Second, the dietary acid load is excreted by the secretion of H+ or proton ions from the kidney cells into the urine. These H+ or proton ions can do one of two things: the H+ or proton ions can be combined with the urinary buffers, particularly HPO4, in a process called titratable acidity (The biochemistry is: H+ + HPO4 = H2PO4), or the phosphate buffering system or the H+ or proton ions can combine with ammonia (NH3) to form ammonium as follows: NH3 + H+ = NH4.

22) This ammonia is trapped and concentrated in the kidney as ammonium which is then excreted in the urine.

23) In response to acid load, 36% of the H+ or proton goes intracellular in exchange for the release of Na+ (sodium) into the blood stream. 15% of the acid goes intracellular in exchange for K+ (potassium) – common in diabetics. 6% of the H+ or proton or acid goes directly into the cell to be buffered by intracellular processes. 43% is buffered extracellularly as NaHCO3- or sodium bicarbonate combining with H+ or proton to form H2CO3 or carbonic acid which breaks down to CO2 or carbon dioxide to be released by the lungs. 10% of CO2 or carbon dioxide is excreted through the lungs and 90% is used by the body to reabsorb alkaline minerals and make sodium bicarbonate for buffering gastrointestinal and metabolic acids.

The biochemistry is: CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 = HCO3 + H+.24) Of all the ways the body can buffer metabolic and dietary acids, the excretion of protein (the eating of meat and cheese) generated acid residues is the only process that does not add sodium bicarbonate back into blood circulation. This creates a loss of bases which is the forerunner of all sickness and disease. In the long run, the only way to replace these lost bases is by eating more alkaline electron-rich green foods and long-chain polyunsaturated fats. Eating meat and cheese is definitely hazardous to your health. That is why I say, “a cucumber a day keeps the doctor away while eating meat, cheese and even an apple creates more excess acid in the colloidal connective tissues, leading to latent tissue acidosis.

25) With over 30 years of research and testing over 500,000 samples of blood and over 1,000,000 samples of urine and saliva I have come to the conclusion that the Human Body is an acid producing organism by function – yet, it is an alkaline organism by design. Eating animal protein, especially meat and cheese and sugar from any source are deadly acidic choices – unless you interested in becoming sick, tired and fat over time.

Bottom line – the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is a program that focuses on the foundational principal that the body is alkaline by design and yet acidic by function. This make this program the ultimate program for preventing and reversing aging and the onset of sickness and dis-ease. I would say that the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is the diet for a longer healthier life.

Please remember this very important truth, hydrochloric acid is not the cause of digestion but the result of digestion. Start alkalizing today and begin improving the quality and quantity of your life today.

No More Diabetes, Cancer, Glaucoma, High Blood Pressure, TMJ, Excess Weight and Drugs!!!!


Hello Dr Young

My name is Lyn Bayley from Perth Australia. I am 50 years old.

My husband put me on your pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet as my weight loss program had me plateaued at 90 kilos for over a year. I have a lap band and taking near nothing in food. But my weight loss stopped until I got on your diet. Within two weeks I lost 3 kilo or 6.6 lbs. My diabetes is now in remission after a detox period of bronchitis and lots of phlegm and diarreah.

I had chronic TMJ and earaches that would debilitate me for days. The only thing I could do to stop them was take powerful pain killers and sleep for days. My migraine headaches have now dissapeared altogether and I feel the best I have for twenty years.

I had a fibrous tumor in my ovary. I went to the specialist three weeks later after being on the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet and to his utter disbelief absolutely no trace of the tumor!!! IT WAS GONE!!!! The Doctor sat there shaking his head in amazement.

My eye specialist said the damage behind my eyes from 20 years of dibetes is gone as well. No more glaucoma!!!!

I am pinching myself hoping all this will last!!

I have only been doing the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet for 10 weeks and every one I know has commentted on my new found disposition!!!

Thank you Dr Young so much for your inspirational and dedicated work!!!!

I love the Doc Broc Green drink!!!

Also, my husband has lost 15 pound and he NO longer needs his high blood pressure medication. He has stopped ALL medications. His average blood pressure is now 125/65 before it was as high as 150/85 on medication.

You and your wife are Saints!!!!!

We are dedicated followers of your every word!!!!

Thanks again from both of us,

Lyn and Will Lyn

I started the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet on the evening of July 25, 2010.
Roma, my former wife & I met in St.Louis on the 16-19 of July.
It was the first time we had seen each other in 11 years.
On the 20th I was back in Nashville.
Roma ask me to comeback the 23-26 of July.
While I was in St.Louis, Anne Marie & her husband,Jonathan called to ask Roma to come up to their home in Iowa, since she was so close by in St.Louis.
Roma lives in Maui, Hawaii, they had met & became friends when Anne Marie & Jonathan were visiting the island.

She said she would come up if Anne Marie would see me professionally.
We arrived on the afternoon of July 25th, 2010,we met them at the Guru Purnama Celebration on campus at M.U.M.(Maharishi University of Management).

I was happy to be at M.U.M. because I have been doing T.M.(Transcendental Meditation) for 36 years.

We stayed with them & they fixed dinner for us that night.
The next day we ate with them before my appointment.
I enjoy the pH Miracle Diet food they prepared.

I had my microscopy live blood cell & MOST analysis done at 3:00 P.M. on July 26, 2010 with Anne Marie.

Anne Marie advised me that since I was taking such large amounts of insulin that it might take some time before getting any positive results.

I was taking a shot of 56 units of Insulin NPH 100 Unit / ML Novolin N, twice daily, every 12 hours.
Also, I was taking a shot of 10 to 20 units of Insulin,Aspart 100/ML Novo, 6 times a day, with 3 meals,2 snacks & bedtime.
In addition, I was taking Metformin HCL 1000 mg. Tab, 2 times a day. This the maxmium dosage allowed.

Plus, I was taking : for high blood pressure,10 mg, half a tablet of Lisinopril 20 Mg Tab 1 a day.
for high cholesterol,40 mg., half a tablet of Simvastatin 80 Mg Tab 1 a day.
for frequent urination,4 mg of Tolterodine Tartrate 4 Mg SA Cap / Detrol LA, 2 times a day & 5 mg, half a tablet of Zolpidem Tartrate 10 Mg Tab, 1 a day.

My type 1 diabetes was so bad that in the spring of 2005, I was rushed to the E.R. with a blood sugar over 600.
The next 3 years it was in the high 200s & 300s.
In the last 2 years with the help of 8 shots a day, my blood sugar has been in the high 100s & 200s.
My doctors told me as a result of years of high blood sugar, I developed neuropathy (nerve damage) in my toes/feet, & once the nerve is dead it will never regenerate.
Finally, I was scheduled for botox injuctions in my bladder to end the nightmare of having to get up every hour to urinate every night for the last 2 years.
I had not had any rem sleep in over 2 years, I was constantly exausted & none of the medications worked.
Anne Marie advised me to stay on my medications, but to be sure to check my blood sugar more often because I might need less insulin.

Being an ordained minister I have always trusted my intuition.
The morning of the 27th of July I stopped taking all insulin & I stopped taking Metformin.
The morning of the 29th of July I stopped taking the Lisinopril.
The morning of the 30th of July I noticed that I felt the pads of my toes for the 1st time since 2001.
The evening of the 31th of July I stopped taking the Simvastatin, Detrol LA, & Tolterodine Tartrate.

I am cancelling the botox injections because I am now sleeping through the night !
I have been drug free since the 31st of July.

I am a veteran, I get my medical care at the Veterans Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee.
My 1st appointment since becoming drug free was with Donna, my dermatologist at 1:20 P.M. on August 3, 2010.

She said that I looked great, better than she had ever seen me before.
She said that it looked like my skin was glowing
.
My 2nd appointment was with my endocrinologist, Dr. Niswender at 10:30 A.M. on August 12, 2010.

He said that my blood sugar looked wonderful & that my blood pressure was normal, 124/70.

He said that the last time I saw him I weighed 258 lbs. & on that day I weigh 237 lbs.,a loss of 21 lbs.

He ask me how much insulin was I taking ?
I told him none.

He couldn’t believe it.

He ordered a complete blood work.
After seeing the results he was stunned.

He said that my blood sugar should be between 80 -120 & that for the first time I was averaging that.

He said that I didn’t need to ever come back to see him, but he ask me to come back in 4 months to make sure the results are permanent.

My blood sugar :

7/25/2010 137
7/26/2010 156
7/27/2010 68
7/28/2010 87

Now, my average blood sugar is around 100.

My 3rd appointment was with my internal medicine specialist, Dr. Sastre at 11:30 A.M. on August 17, 2010.

She said all my vitals looked great & not to come back for 8 months.

She said that my cholesterol level is now completely in normal range.

I am drug free & feeling great !

I am grateful to Roma for getting me there.

I am very grateful to Anne Marie, Dr. Patrick Sobota & Dr. Robert Young & Shelley.
You help save my life !

I continue to lose weight. I now weight 230 lbs, a 28 lbs loss.
I have the energy of a teenager !

I have started jogging for the 1st time in 3 decades.
My life is wave after wave after wave of bliss !

It was the perfect synergy of events : reconnecting with my former wife,Roma, reconnecting with M.U.M. for Guru Purnama, reconnecting with my spiritual mentor,Jerry Jarvis, 36 years of meditation, having Anne Marie do the consultation,learning the diet and doing the diet, & follow up with Anne Marie & Dr. Patrick Sobota.

Acidic Sugary Drinks Fuel Rise in Diabetes and Heart Disease

More Americans than ever drink sugary drinks daily, according to government statistics, and the increase has fueled the rise in heart disease and diabetes over the past 10 years. Scientists used a computer simulation called the Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) Policy Model to estimate that the rise in consumption has contributed to 130,000 new cases of diabetes and 14,000 new cases of coronary artery disease in adults age 35 and older.

Sodas sweetened with the acid sugar, sport, and fruit drinks (not 100 percent fruit juice) contain between 120 and 200 calories, and play a role both in the development of obesity and diabetes.

“The CHD model allows us to incorporate data from other studies that demonstrate an association between daily consumption of sugared beverages and diabetes risk,” Dr. Litsa Lambrakos, study lead investigator and internal medicine resident at the University of California, San Francisco, said in a statement. “We can then translate this information into estimates of the current diabetes and cardiovascular disease that can be attributed to the rise in consumption of these drinks.”

Experts suggest that imposing an excise tax of one cent per ounce of beverage would reduce consumption by 10 percent.

“If such a tax could curb the consumption of these drinks, the health benefits could be dramatic,” said Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, senior author of the study and associate professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco.

“The soda tax is a fix that just makes sense,” said New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a radio address.

The American Heart Association recommends women limit added sugar to about 100 calories a day and that men limit their added sugar to 150 calories daily. Sugar-sweetened beverages should be limited to 450 calories or less each week (36 ounces), based on a 2,000 calorie per day diet.

Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of the pH Miracle Center states, “all sodas, sport drinks, fruit drinks, exotic fruit drinks primarily sold by network marketing companies are highly acidic and will contribute or even cause the acid conditions of diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. My best advice is if the beverage tastes sweet and/or carbonated spit it out and through it away, it is poison to the body.”
