Preventing and Reversing Hair Loss

A History of Hair

An Egyptian papyrus scroll dating back over 3000 years prescribes an ointment for restoring lost hair consisting of equal parts of crocodile fat and hippopotamus dung. The Egyptian Pharaoh’s were never seen with out a wig and the sons of Pharaoh wore their hair in a distinctive bun on the right side of their head just behind the ear.

Remember the Biblical tale of Sampson who had the strength to destroy the Philistines as long as his hair remained. Delilah gave him the most famous haircut in history that left him a ’97 pound weakling.’ Hippocrates recognized a connection between sexual organs and baldness. His prescription for preventing hair loss was the application of cumin, pigeon droppings, horseradish, and nettles to the scalp.

The Roman rulers were called ‘Caesar’ which means ‘Head of Hair.’

King Louie XV made elaborate wigs fashionable to cover his baldness. Many of the signers of the Declaration of Independence covered their baldness with wigs. Today hair continues to be an important symbol of attitudes, culture, religion and sex appeal.

For a woman, it is her ‘Crowning Glory’!

For a man, as it was to Julius Caesar, it is his wreath of honor, his symbol of virile manhood!

The human skin (the largest organ) has more hair follicles per unit of surface area than any other primate. People with black hair have 100,000 follicles present in the scalp whereas blondes have 10% more and redheads 10% less. You lose 100 hairs a day.If hair is left uncut it will grow to 40 inches in length in the anagen phase or growing phase.

According to Dr. Young, ‘hair loss is not a hair problem but a location problem.’

What is Hair?

Hair is composed of a protein called Keratin. Human hair is classified into two groups: vellus and terminal hair. Hair has a nerve fiber going to the bulb. There is a separate, tiny muscle, called the erector pili, which connects the underside of the skin to the hair shaft. When you are frightened, cold or angry the muscle contracts and your hair stands on end. Each time the erector pili contracts, it puts pressure on the sebaceous gland, next to the hair shaft, which then secretes sebum to lubricate the hair. An overactive sebaceous gland causes oily skin and hair. Each hair, muscle and gland comprises a pilo-sebaceous unit.

The Long and Short of Hair Growth Rapunzel let her hair down from the tower to let the prince climb up. She had no idea that she was missing a growth factor that controls the length of hair.

In 1994, the University of California, San Francisco revealed that the presence of a growth factor contrary to its name limits the length that hair will grow. It is called, Fibroblast Growth Factor 5 and is a chemical messenger that controls the growth of hair. When missing this factor, the hair will not stop growing and will eventually fall out. Fibroblast Growth Factor 5 is the first chemical signal discovered for the hair cycle.

The Hair Growth Cycle First, a hair follicle develops. Deep inside it lays a bud of mesodermal tissue which causes the bud to divide and sprout a new hair. Eventually, as expected, it stops growing due to Fibroblast Growth Factor 5. The follicle becomes quiescent and the hair falls out ending the cycle only to begin again.

Hair consists of the highly insoluble substance of protein-like keratin, containing a fixed portion of the amino acids arginine, histidine, and lysine, but variable proportions of cystene. Hair is 15% keratin. Hair is a cylinder of impacted keratinized cells comprising three major structures: the outside layer called the cuticle, the next layer the cortex, and the central-most layer known as the medulla.

The Anatomy of Hair and its Follicles

The medulla contains melanin pigment granules and is present in only thick terminal hair. It is the least important part of the hair as it pertains to a hair product which nourishes or stimulates hair growth. The cortex, the thickened part of the hair shaft, is a site at which most of the hair changes of texture, porosity, brittleness, color and thickness occurs. The cuticle, consisting of flattened cells arranged like shingles on a roof, maintains the integrity of the hair shaft. The overlapping is extremely tight, preventing damage to the underlying cortex. When the cuticle is intact, the scales are smooth, reflect light, and provide the hair with a shiny, healthy look. This healthy appearance is a manifestation of the hair’s porosity, elasticity, and texture.

There Are 39 Forms of Baldness

The medical profession calls hair loss alopecia. Hair loss can be due to any one or a combination of genetics, systemic acidosis, excess of acidic hormones, drug side effects, aging, chemotherapy, radiation, skin disorder or other symptoms due to systemic acidosis that localizes at the weakest point of the body.

The Six Main Types of Alopecia or Hair Loss

Alopecia areata is well-defined bald patches often round or oval. They present themselves on the head, beard, and other hairy parts of the body.

Alopecia universalis is complete hair loss on the entire body.

Patchy alopecia hair loss develops on the parietal and occipital regions of scalp.

Alopecia totalis is complete hair loss on the scalp.

Alopecia disseminata hair loss around the whole scalp or other parts of the body.

Alopecia androgenetica male and female pattern baldness.

Breakdown and Loss of the Hair Anagen Phase: Ana in Greek means ‘growing up’ and gen indicates ‘life.’ During this phase the hair shaft is firmly embedded and a hair strand is growing. Catagen Phase: Cata in Greek means ‘growing down.’ The club structure has formed as the outer hair root sheath collapses and withdraws up the follicular sheath. The hair is breaking down. Telogen Phase: Tele means in Greek ‘the End.’ The follicle is shrinking the sheath retracts and trails in the dermal layer of the scalp. The hair strand is ready to fall out.

Male Androgenic Alopecia or Male Pattern Baldness 66 % of all men in westernized countries experience hair thinning and 40% develop baldness.

There are eight typical patterns of andro (hormone) genetic

Type I before puberty
Type II teenager
Type III adulthood early stages of hair loss, spot balding at the vertex
Type IV thru VIII progressively more severe

What Causes the Incredible Shrinking Hair

Loss Blood circulation follows energy–no energy, no circulation. Blood circulation to the bulb of the hair pulls away or ‘disconnects’ because the electrical charge or electrical energy which was flowing to the nerves that are attached to the bulbs are destroyed due to excess acidity from, in essence, a simply wrong and bodily-incompatible form of living, eating and thinking. Nerves providing the electrical energy for blood differentiation also pull away from the hair bulb due to poor blood circulation.

Without blood for de-differentiation (the transformation of blood into new hair cells) and nerves to provide the proper energy fields for de-differentiation and re-differentiation, no new hair follicles will grow and the hair shrinks and falls out.

Theoretical Causes of Alopecia

1) Systemic acids that localize at the bulb of the hair follicle.
2) Increased biological transmutations of bacteria and yeast.
3) Mineral deficiency, especially zinc, magnesium and manganese that are chelating or buffering metabolic acids.
4) Physical and emotional stress that increase acidity and biological transformations.
5) Hormonal imbalance, especially the increase of the acidic hormone testosterone.

Female Androgenic Alopecia or Female Pattern Baldness

1) 22% of the World’s women have hair thinning and hair loss. Grade 1, Grade 2 and Grade 3 hair loss can manifest at anytime after puberty.
2) Increased amounts of the acid testosterone come from eating acidic meats.
3) Increased amounts of acids due to physical and emotional stress.
4) Increased amounts of bacteria and yeast due to increased amounts of endogenous acids.

Hormones and Alopecia Hair loss has been associated with too much testosterone. Testosterone interacts with an enzyme, 5-alpha reductase, which is concentrated in the skin and genitals. 5-alpha reductase converts testosterone into another acid called dihydrotetosterone (DHT). DHT has been associated with male external genital development such as the formation of the penis, scrotum, and prostate. In the scalp, each follicle reacts to the over-production of DHT. Men and women in male or female pattern baldness have DHT-sensitive follicles at the front and top of the head. Excess DHT is created through diets that are high in carbohydrate and protein that increase bacteria, yeast and the subsequent endogenous acids.

Genetics and Alopecia

According to dermatologists, hair loss is supposedly a result of triggers that can activate a variant or non-active gene, the Fibroblast Growth Factor 5 which is called the Angora Gene.

The Angora Gene, when activated, causes the hair follicle to rapidly progress to the Tologen Phase or end stage of the form and function of the hair follicle. This gene is inherited from the fathers and occasionally from mothers.

The Russian Roulette Metaphor

The Angora gene is activated by lifestyle triggers such as physical and emotional stress, chemicals from hair products, chemotherapy, antibiotics, increased endogenous acids, increased microforms and parasites, just to name a few.

Solutions to Prevent Onset Baldness Due to DHT and other Acids

1) The production of testosterone would be halted as a result of castration, but balding or baldness would clearly be the lesser of two evils by a factor of, say…..a million to one?
2) Stop the increased production of testosterone that results in excess DHT and thereby causing the hair follicle to shrink by introducing an alkaline lifestyle and diet. This diet is described as part of the pH Miracle lifestyle described in depth in The pH Miracle book by Dr. Robert and Shelley Young. This dietary approach can work by blocking the DHT before it gets to the follicles. The block occurs by diluting the blood plasma of DHT with alkalizing fluids from green foods and drink, including green drink.
3) Strengthen the hair follicles so they are not sensitive to DHT by introducing green foods, green drinks, minerals that bind acids such as DHT, and the use of shampoos and conditioners that strengthen the hair follicle and keep excess sebum from building up in and around the hair follicle as a result of excess acidity.
4) Finally, support the white blood cells responsible for picking up and clearing out broken cortex, matrix cells, and hair fibers by keeping the environment around the hair bulb alkalized and energized with alkalizing shampoos and conditioners. This supports the white blood cells, your blood system’s garbage collector, to take unwanted material away from the area and eventually escorting it out of the body via urination, defecation, perspiration or respiration.

Solutions to Reverse Male and Female Alopecia Androgentica The prevention and regeneration of new hair is determined by five factors:

1) The quality of the blood from alkaline living, eating and thinking.
2) The quality of the alkaline context that surrounds the blood.
3) The quality of the alkaline context that surrounds the hair bulb.
4) The condition of circulation of blood going into the existing hair bulb.
5) And the alkaline context of the scalp.

Acid, Yeast and Alopecia

Yeast ferments blood glucose causing an increase of acid. You don’t want yeast and you don’t need increased acids. Acids are chelated (heavy metal removal) by cholesterol causing poor blood circulation to the bulb of the follicular papilla. Healthy blood is needed to provide the anatomical elements in the production of biological fibers known as hair. Acids break down blood and cause the breakdown of the nerves going up into the follicular papilla that provides the energy fields for the biological transformation of the blood into biological fibers. Acids break down the capillaries that feed nutrients into the hair bulb causing the hair to stop growing and fall out.

Solutions to Reverse Male and Female Alopecia Androgenetica

1) Alkalarian lifestyle and diet – pH Miracle Living
2) Increase green foods and green drinks
3) Supplement extra vitamins and minerals, especially zinc that chelates the acid DHT that causes hair shrinkage and Prostate gland enlargement or inflammation.
4) Use stimulating and alkalizing shampoos, conditioners, and hair tonics that clean the scalp naturally and remove cellular debris, sebum, bacteria, yeast, mold and parasites.
5) Protect the hair shaft with good oils contained in an alkalizing conditioner.
6) Clean and provide nutrients to the scalp and hair twice daily.

T-Cells and Thymosin

The job of the lymphocytes is to locate, collect and dump acids and morbid microforms from the body. The T-lymphocyte migrates from the thymus gland and is created out of the red blood cells. T-lymphocytes activate B-lymphocytes that mediate morbid microforms or antigens and their associated acids. A thymus glandular extract can be massaged into the scalp in shampoos, conditioners, hair tonics, hair thickeners and/or ingesting as a nutritional supplement, to help in the re-growth of hair.

Research Indicates Thymus Microzymas Prevent and Regenerate Hair

Two clinical studies in 1991 and 1992 at the Darmstadt City Hospital Dermatology Department enrolled 20 patients suffering from alopecia areata totalis et universalis. The study participants used thymus glandular extract shampoo and conditioner for 24 months and this was the result:

1) 65% or 12 patients had new hair growth on the scalp and/or other parts of the body.
2) 40% of these or 5 patients had complete remission of their alopecia.
3) Baldness went away within an average of sixteen months and upon follow-up had not returned in any form.
4) Other Scientific Studies of Thymus Dr. M. Hagedorn, in a third published paper from the Dermatological Department of the Municipal Hospital in Darmstadt, Germany, had this to say, ‘It has been proven that hair loss can be stopped and hair growth reactivated if the roots are still intact. Clinical studies on patients who were losing hair caused by alopecia androgentica showed the thymus extract treatment was successful in 94 percent of women and 67 percent of men.

Therapeutic success ratios increase with longer periods of treatment.

Therapeutic Successes Against Alopecia Androgenetica & Alopecia Areata Research results by Dr. Moessler and Prof. Dr. Hageorn are as follows:

1) 51 patients with Alopecia androgenetica and 16 patients with Alopecia areata were treated with Thymus extract over 12 months.
2) 67% of the men and 100% of the women with Alopecia androgenetica benefited with new hair growth.
3) 85% with Alopecia areata resulted in partial or full re-growth of scalp hair Cytotoxic Hair Loss Study Dr. Claus O. Keohler, former Chief of the Department of Medical and Biological Informatics at the German Center Research in Heidelberg, Germany, conducted aninvestigation on 251 cancer patients treated with cytotoxic agents.

The Professor Keohler used thymus extract as a means to prevent chemical baldness. These were the results:

1) There was no hair loss for 68.5 percent of patients over age 60 and 58.9 percent for patients under age 60.

Dr. Young has been researching hair loss and hair regeneration for over 20 years. He has applied his alkaline lifestyle and diet and now his newly released Head pHirst hair shampoo and Top pHinish hair conditioner to clean and heal the scalp, regenerate new hair, preserve existing hair and to keep new and existing hair healthy and strong. The Reversal of Baldness has been a Personal Journey for over 30 Years for Dr. Robert O. Young!

The reversal for male and/or female pattern baldness is not an event but a process of months and even years of alkalizing and energizing the body with:

1) An alkalizing lifestyle and diet
2) Alkalizing nutritional supplements
3) The pH Miracle Young pHorever Head pHirst Shampoo, and
4) The pH Miracle Young pHorever Top pHinish Conditioner

Possible Mode of Action from the New pH Miracle Young pHorever Head pHirst Shampoo and Top pHinish Conditioner

As a result of the increased efficiency of the white blood cells in chelating and removing morbid cellular matter and acids from the absorption of the thymus extract, the client’s follicles are stimulated to give rise to tiny hairs which will eventually grow into terminal hairs. The follicles become excited into functioning again.

The main active ingredients in the pH Miracle Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Thickener are tiny short-chained peptides formulated with vitamins, minerals and herbs which are highly penetrating into the integument of the scalp, nourishing the hair follicle and root of the hair. The following are the major excellent and very healthy ingredients that are found in the first all-Natural alkalizing pH Miracle hair/scalp and conditioner. These two products help prevent and reverse hair loss.

The products have been named Head pHirst Shampoo and Top pHinish Conditioner!

Deionized water occurs when you remove ions from water or a solution by using an ion-exchange process, it makes the shampoo easy to lather. De-ionization is the process which removes the positive ions from water, thus decreasing its acidity.

Soapbark is a gentle cleanser from the tree bark of a Chilean evergreen tree.

Lavender is an ingredient that helps relax scalp and muscles.

Chamomile is taken from the leaves of the English chamomile plant which is historically used for its soothing and calming properties. Chamomile accentuates natural highlights and leaves a healthy sheen. It is considered excellent for sensitive skin. Chamomile has also been used topically to reduce inflammation of the skin and is soothing and healing for irritated skin and scalp.

Rosemary provides a cooling sensation. It is a purifying and toning agent with anti-microbial activity. It is believed to stimulate new hair growth. Rosemary is good as a hair conditioner.

You will experience its strong, clean and refreshing scent. It has been used for centuries to promote healthy hair and skin.

Burdock is considered by herbalists to be a primary herb for purifying the blood. It is alsohelpful in alleviating soreness and swelling caused by rheumatism and arthritis, as well as treating rashes and skin irritations such as psoriasis.

Aloe Vera, or the leaves of the aloe plant, has been known far back in history for its natural and remarkable healing and soothing properties. In fact legend has it that Cleopatra massaged fresh aloe gel into her skin and hair every day to preserve her beauty. Some also believed it prevented hair loss and rubbed it into their scalps. Aloe Vera conditions, moisturizes and softens dry hair and scalp as it calms and refreshes.

Wheat Germ oil comes from the heart of the wheat berry, the embryo of the new plant. This oil is unique among dietary supplements and foods because it is unusually rich (65% by weight) in the most biologically active forms of vitamin E. Vitamin E acts as an inhibitor of oxidation processes in body tissues. It protects unsaturated fats in the body from oxidation by peroxides and other acids. In fact, the tocopherols are used commercially as anti-acids to retard the spoiling of fats, especially other vegetable oils.

Vitamin A is a skin healer and acts as an anti-acid.

Allantoin promotes wound healing, speeds up cell regeneration, and has a keratolytic or skin-softening effect. It is a water-soluble crystal known for its ability to help heal wounds and skin ulcers and stimulate the growth of healthy tissue. Allantoin is a conditioning humectant that increases the water binding capacity of proteins. It naturally soothes scalp irritations. It is said to clean away necrotic tissue, hastening the growth, healing the creation of epithelial cells that may then take place. Allantoin has been also termed a counter irritant that helps alleviate the untoward skin irritation effects of certain cosmetic ingredients such as shampoo.

Inositol protects against hair loss and helps maintain healthy hair. Inositol functions very closely with another B-complex vitamin, choline. Because it is not essential in the human diet, it cannot be considered a vitamin. It is a fundamental ingredient of cell membranes and is necessary for proper nerve, brain, and muscle function. Inositol is lipotropic, and works in conjunction with folacin, vitamins B-6 and B-12, choline, betaine, and methinonine to help prevent the accumulation of fats in the liver. This fundamental cell ingredient can also be taken internally.

Biotin is a coenzyme, essential for the normal metabolism of fats and protein. It maintains healthy skin and is especially good for the health of hair follicles. The best natural sources are nuts, fruits, brewer’s yeast and unpolished rice. This vitamin will rejuvenate hair follicles when taken by mouth or rubbed directly on the skin in a cream base. It may even re-grow a few hairs, which have gone into early retirement. Hair will stand up straighter and recover a healthy sheen. This enzyme can be taken internally.

Folic Acid Health starts with the individual cells of our body. If our cells are healthy so are we. Healthy cells, in turn, depend on the continued, faultless replication of our DNA. DNA can be seriously damaged through attacks by free radicals so an adequate antioxidant status is essential to cell health. It is now becoming clear, however, that antioxidants alone are not enough to protect our DNA; more and more research points to the B- vitamin folic acid as being equally or perhaps even more important in ensuring proper DNA replication. Folic acid (folinic acid, folacin, pteroylglutamic acid) was first isolated from spinach leaves (its name derives from the Latin folium meaning ‘leaf’) in 1964 and early on was found to be essential in the prevention of anemia in animals. Later it was discovered that ensuring that mothers had adequate folic acid levels could prevent neural tube defects in human babies. Therefore, eat lots of spinach. Folic acid supplements are often taken internally.

Germaben Oil is a natural preservative that contains grape seed extract.

Colloidal Silver is used as a natural preservative and consists of this all natural mineral supplement. It characteristics:

a) Unparalleled germ fighter, transforms bacteria, fungus and viral outfections.
b) True colloidal silver. Colloid means silver particles in water.
c) No potentially dangerous protein additives.
d) Made using the highest purity, sterile reagent grade deionized water.
e) 0.001-0.005 microns non-toxic (high voltage process, gives longer shelf life)
f) 15 ppm (ideal size of silver particles) Yucca is a natural soap for hair and body and helps prevent baldness.

Avocado Oil is high in proteins, amino acids and vitamins A, D, and E. Avocado is very moisturizing and healing. It is a very rich, somewhat waxy oil and regenerates and softens skin tissue. Avocado is ideal for extremely dry and sensitive skin but has a limited shelf life. It protects hair against environmental stress. In ancient times, avocados were thought to stimulate hair and cell growth. Avocados contain high levels of Vitamins B2, D, A, E, K and potassium which makes them an excellent source of nutrients. It is also known for its revitalizing and healing properties.

Glycerine is a natural emollient and humectant derived from vegetable oils. It is a valuable skin nourishing ingredient in quality soaps and lotions. Glycerine is often removed by the soap industry and sold as a valuable bi-product. Handmade soaps retain all its glycerin with additional glycerin often used in hand-milled soaps for greater nourishing properties.

Cellulose Gum is used as a thickening agent and significantly enhances the quality by acting as a stabilizer. It also controls crystallization and moisture retention.

Panthenol helps thicken each hair shaft naturally with vegetable-source protein. It is a member of the Vitamin B complex family used as a hair thickener and conditioning agent. During oxidation, it is converted to vitamin B 5 or pantheonic acid.

Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein is wheat which increases hair’s flexibility and elasticity. It holds water in the hair shaft at increased levels. It builds body while it moisturizes and conditions dry and brittle hair. It is a foam builder and anti-irritant. It is naturally derived from wheat protein. Improves hair shine, volume, manageability, eliminates split ends, and builds protective & moisturizing film on skin.

Hydrolyzed human hair protein is real human hair broken down and added via small powderized molecules in weight and size which takes the actual protein from hair.

Vitamin E is used for its healing and anti-oxidant properties. It conditions, moisturizes and protects. Vitamin E is a great source for many different reasons including heart protection, prevention of cancer, immunity booster, and brain preserver. It has also been known to help in the aid of bodily wound healing, internally and externally. It is thought to be an anti-aging nutrient and more. Vitamin E is the main antioxidant that protects all cells from damage. It is therefore one of the most important nutrient supplements you can use to keep your whole body healthy and protected against disease.

Keratin Protein is an all protein vegetable source, and is made form a combination of amino acids. Hair and skin are actually just billions of these tiny little amino acids all chained together in a special way. When hair becomes damaged by bleaching, coloring, perming or styling abuse, some of these amino acids get stripped away. To make the hair look healthier and be stronger you have to replace the lost amino acids.

Olive Oil is a good moisturizing oil with healing properties. It attracts external moisture, holds moisture close to skin and forms a breathable film to prevent loss of internal moisture. The skin can continue to sweat, releasing sebum and shed dry skin cells.

Sesame Oil contains proteins and is high in vitamin E. It is ideal for its high sesame content and is very good for moisturizing.

Nettle, often used in hair care products, helps stimulate hair follicles and regulate scalp oil buildup.

Peppermint works as a local anesthetic to alleviate scalp tension while stimulating circulation, cleansing, cooling, and clarifying.

Comfrey speeds the healing of wounds and many skin conditions such as psoriasis.

Eat, Drink, Take Drugs, and Be Merry for Tomorrow You ?

From time to time, you hear me ranting andraving, yes, in my own inimitable style, about the wrong-headed, misinformed, head-in-the-sand, un-scientific manner in which a great amount of allopathic medicine, both clinical and research, is conducted.

Yes, I said, ‘unscientific.’ I don’t know for sure if I’ve actually said that to you before. I don’t care how many billions of dollars you spend on research, but if your underlying theory is wrong, if you already have a bias about the outcome of your research, if you have a vested interest in certain results, if you stand to make a lot of money based on findings in one direction versus the other, or if you are unwilling to look at other ideas or theories that challenge your basic assumptions…. THAT’S UNSCIENTIFIC.

Most of the medical research done in America is funded by the pharmaceutical companies. Pharmaceutical companies have a VESTED INTEREST in demonstrating that their drugs are safe and effective. They WANT the tests to come out a certain way and they want their drug to be approved by the FDA. They want to be able to show certain results because, among other things, there are billions of dollars riding on outcomes and because it costs hundreds of millions of dollars in research to get a drug approved.

And yet we know the entire system is flawed. Even if every single drug ever produced by Big Phama were NOT acidic and detrimental to your general health, the system is still totally flawed.

The Truth About Current Medical Research

Let me give you my example of what I am talkingabout when I take current medical findings and then distorttheir meaning to come up with my own desired result or outcome:

Fact 1: Japanese eat very little fat and have fewer heart attacks than Americans

Fact 2: Mexicans eat a lot of fat and have fewer heart attacks than Americans

Fact 3: Chinese drink very little red wine and have fewer heart attacks than Americans

Fact 4: Italians drink a lot or red wine and have fewer heart attacks than Americans

Fact 5: Germans drink a lot of beer and eat sausage but suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans

Medical Reserach Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like being American is what kills you! 🙂

Is Your Medicine Killing You?

In a recent year, the American Medical Association reported that there were 125,000 deaths related to medication problems. That doesn’t sound ‘safe and effective’ to me. How is it that so many drugs get pulled off the market every year because the so many deaths have begun to rack up from the use of certain medications? Does that sound like good research or good science to you?

In my 25 years of alternative health education, I have seen a number of persons who have come to the center after months or years of ingesting multiple toxic medications and/or radiation treatments. Some of them did not get the health information and guidance that they needed in time to make the changes that the needed and to avoid their death. Yet, I have never seen even one person whose death was related to any health educational information that they learned about pH balancing, diet, food-combining, exercise, prevention, supplements, blood analysis, detoxification, gastro-intestinal cleansing, or related nutritional programs.

Now allow me to be more specific for a moment. The # 2 highest-selling drugs peddled in the world today are anti-depressants. They are only second to antacids. The anti-depressant reactions are an illusion and the illness they purport to treat are an illusion. At least the antacids like TUMS are an attempt to address a real problem–a state of acidity–even if the overall treatment approach is being conducted in an incorrect and unhealthy manner.

‘There are NO cures for disease because there are NO diseases. But there are states of dietary and nutritional ‘balance’ or ‘imbalance’ that can cause a health problem or that can become sufficiently out of proportion to turn into a symptom. But symptoms are not diseases.

The concept of the existence of hundreds and hundreds of diseases is an illusion. The body is so vast, so complex, and so miraculous that it can exhibit a seemingly infinite number of symptoms and clusters of symptoms–indications of a health challenge.

Yet, because of the way our health system is operating by the government, in large part via the auspices of the Food and Drug Administration, the reason that you hear about more and more ‘diseases’ is that once a symptom or set of symptoms are classified as a disease, there can be no legal, natural, inexpensive, or simple way to address it. By administrative law, there is no way to ‘prevent’ a ‘disease’ or ‘cure’ it–except with a drug. Some day an ‘avocado’ may become a ‘drug.’

The FDA says that only drugs can prevent or cure a disease. If you claim to have a ‘natural’ cure such as an herb, plant, vitamin, or preventive regimen, you are in danger of breaking the law. Once symptoms are called diseases by the FDA, then there is great competition to make drugs to cure the disease. Yet, at the pH Miracle Center, we know that disease is an illusion. Only states or levels of acidity or alkalinity are real.

The only ‘disease’ I know of would properly be called acidosis. The symptoms that allopathic medicine calls diseases are consequences of personal lifestyle, dietary choice, misinformation and mis-education.

For instance, mental illness is NOT a disease but a symptom of an over-acidic lifestyle and diet. And yet, it has created the #2 most prolific selling plethora of prescription drugs and even a few non-prescription drugs to combat it.

Now, perhaps for the first time, you will hear AMA medical doctors admit that there is NO DISEASE, NO TREATMENT and NO CURE for one of the biggest, illusionary, rampantly diagnosed, profitable diseases in the world – MENTAL ILLNESS! Please view the following short 5 minute video of interviews with many psychiatrists attending the American Psychiatric Association convention.

In this video, you heard prominent American psychiatrists at the 2006 APA convention in Toronto explain how symptoms are voted on by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual committee in order to determine if some symptom, health challenge, problem in living, or behavioral anomaly will be classified as a new ‘disease.’

Yet, there are no chemical tests or ways to measure and validate a cause or causes in the brain for psychiatric disorders. There are, however, disease entities ‘identified’ such as ‘caffeine-related disorders’ or ‘mathematical-disorders.’

International sales for so-called psychiatric medications have reached $76 billion dollars. Also heard was information related by many psychiatrists that testifies to the fact that chemicals actually introduce health challenges into patients’ bodies because the pharmaceutical medications are toxic to the body. This occurs despite the many warnings around the world that drugs used in psychiatry can cause suicide, violence, psychosis, mania, heart attacks, and sudden death.

Is it any wonder that your friend, Dr. Robert O. Young, gets upset from time to time. Is it any wonder that you hear me say that cancer is NOT a disease but a symptom of an over-acidic lifestyle and diet’ or that heart attacks and strokes are NOT diseases but are symptoms of an over-acidic lifestyle and diet or that AIDS is NOT a disease but a symptom of an over-acidic lifestyle and diet?

Just remember, as you go about your daily life, as you go about caring for your children and families, as you go about trying to provide valuable work and service to the world around you–remember that the human body is alkaline by design and acidic by function. That means that the body was designed by Mother Nature and her Helpers to run on mostly alkaline fuel, and the many functions of the body that burn that fuel are acidic events.

It takes a great deal of alkaline fuel so that the acid residues of our food intake will not overwhelm the body over time and create symptoms and bodily challenges.

Also, remember that to maintain the alkaline design of the human body is to experience energy, vitality and eternal life.

In love and healing light:

Dr. Robert O. Young

HIV is NOT the Cause of AIDS!

No scientific literature exists that proves HIV is the cause of AIDS or any other illness. Its validity is based on officious pronouncements by a one-time authority at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and based on a narrow range of behavior in lab-controlled environments.

It is the same supposed authority, Dr. Robert Gallo, head of key NIH cancer labs, beginning in 1974, who would become the driving force behind the expenditure of more than $1 billion in cancer research. This is the same research that has produced much faulty research while accompanied by the growth of an AIDS epidemic out of control.

During this time, the same authority was granted two patents whose value depended upon the belief or perception that HIV is really the cause of AIDS. The patents involved the development of blood tests for HIV and the mechanism behind the screening of huge volumes of blood donated for treatment of this so-called virus.

With western medical scientists and researchers possessing little or no understanding of the acid-alkaline foundation of the body, AIDS became a modern-day label applied to a combination of immune deficiencies that highlight a group of symptoms. The symptoms were then said to be related because they occurred together much like a headache and a backache and an upset stomach might all occur together. They were then labeled with the AIDS terminology and accompanying faulty explanatory system.

To further energize this medical fiasco, public attention was then sparked by using statistical manipulation and juxtaposition of data, faulty research methodology, and media sensationalism to fuel the creation of public fear. The errors were also bred, in part, by a lack of scientific depth and breadth as well as a narrow understanding of health and disease and the alkaline design of the human body.

By conceptualizing and referring to this many-faceted syndrome as a unitary disease, irresponsible public health leadership has reinforced the notion that this simple yet misunderstood phenomenon can somehow cause the entire collapse of the powerful human immune system. Logical questions would query whether the collapse of the immune system can be blamed on a nearly undetectable virus or a virus that has even yet to be identified. Upon objective examination using appropriate research hypotheses and controlled methodology, it would be discovered that the cause of the constellation of symptoms lies elsewhere, and the virus simply does not exist!

They key word is “objective.” Once billions of dollars are spent to create a new disease entity and a complex series of supposed treatment regimens, the objectivity of daylight quickly fades into the dark shadows and narrow dead-end alleys of the self-interested mind.

The Elastic Bandwagon The HIV/AIDS theory is so elastic that it literally begs for criticism from reasonable people. Historically, the lack of objectivity by parties with vested interests have led to unreasonable assumptions and a sort of “conceptual elasticity.” Typical of this elasticity is the latent period of the virus which was originally extended from one year to 12 years and in 2007 has been further extended to over 20 years.

The HIV dogma is nearly impossible to swallow by knowledgeable scientists who are willing to take the time and effort to look closely. So-called experts explain that in spite of the extremely low incidence of HIV in the body, it somehow mysteriously tricks the immune system into attacking itself!

Thus, I refer to it as the “HIV/Elastic Theory” (HIV/ET)

The HIV/ET public preoccupation diverts the responsibility for a health epidemic away from the misconduct of a pharmaceutically-controlled, conflict-ridden medical tradition. As much as any other factor, a century of medical practice based on the flawed germ theory—a theory from which much misdirected thinking begins—contributes to the AIDS epidemic as much as any other factor. If only one, single, independent research hospital or laboratory was to begin clinical research and investigation with open mindedness about the germ theory, entirely new findings would result over time. Another contributing factor of the HIV/AIDS debacle has been the oppressive socioeconomic and political conditions that exist in the Third World, and to a lesser degree, in parts of North America. Unique constellations of symptoms found in various parts of the world create factors that are poorly understood by scientists half a world away.

These factors include:

a) the corporate dumping of banned drugs on unregulated Third World markets,
b) pesticide manufacturing conducting inadequate research,
c) the lack of chemical control education by the general public,
d) commercial pesticide use determined by economic and not human concerns
e) the lack of publicity for science-demonstrated alternatives to insect control,
f) a general misunderstanding of the nature and value of so-called pests,
g) poverty and squalid living conditions, and
h) rain forest destruction.

Factors such as these, and not HIV, must be included as primary agents when discussing the cause of AIDS and unique clusters of bodily symptoms. As a microscopist, nutritionist, and public health educator, I have worked with many HIV-positive individuals who have remained free of AIDS symptoms for years. Yet, when treated with prescription drugs like AZT, patients have become ill and died from a wasting disease in a short time. When this occurs, the cause of death is blamed on AIDS. Yet AIDS death and AZT then become virtually indistinguishable.

Pharmaceutical companies are heavily involved in the broader economy including the chemical industry which is also responsible for pesticide research and manufacture. The incestuous corporate relationships among industries extend broadly and the inter-connections include the majority of chemical, pharmaceutical, food, agriculture, petroleum and international banking companies. No “conspiracy theory” is needed here. The relationship among industrial despots is not the malevolence of active collusion but the evil that stems from the absence of integrity.

Ask yourself. Is there any major industry in America that has not seen horrendous front page scandals directly related to problems of moral character, grasping materialism, bottom-line obsessions, and leadership integrity? Corporate executives do not have to talk to each other on the phone. That’s dangerous, illegal, and to be avoided. Monsanto does not have to call Merck who calls Cargill who calls Archer-Daniels-Midland who calls British Petroleum who calls the Industrial Commercial Bank of China. That’s not how it works. They all arise at 5 a.m. to check the same overseas markets while still on the morning treadmill and first cup of coffee. They all study the same Wall Street Journal, analyze the same markets, track the same world trends, and study the same forecasts before they make their same capital-based decisions and send their lobbyists to Washington D.C. and the same financial capitols across the world.

All major industries have bought into the values dictated by obscene executive compensation, ruthless world markets and the cut-throat, competitive marketplace. It is not as if the HIV/ET apologists and protagonists did note have enough self-enriching motivation to maintain the economic status quo. Even those individuals who understand the nature of bodily health and those who have made a commitment to an alkaline lifestyle must continue to live in a world dominated by massive environmental influences which work against the establishment of a correct science leading to a healthy medical and personal science of health.

The bottom line is that AIDS toxicity as well as cancer and other degenerative symptoms are produced by large amounts of toxins (metabolic acids) from many sources in the body along with poor nutrition, poor sanitation and prescription and recreational drugs. Toxicity is a result of drug abuse, faulty diet, and poisonous overgrowth of fungal microorganisms. Fungal organisms are inherent in the body. Their purpose is to recycle dead material. This is done by digestion of tissues and further breakdown via acid waste products. These microorganisms are kept in check by a balanced biochemistry and are present when our internal terrain becomes acidic. The problem begins when, prematurely, the organisms receive a chemical or biological signal that the host is dead and spring into action. Their poisons cause the body to produce the symptoms of what we call disease.

A real-life AIDS Scenario One of the first five AIDS cases in history, a 33 year old Los Angeles male, was engaged in a high-risk lifestyle. He admitted taking aphrodisiacs used during the 1960s and 70s known as “poppers.”

Poppers are made from animal nitrite, a poisonous mycotoxin (acid). Some people are familiar with nitrites used in deli meats which are regulated as potential carcinogens. Few nitrites are more toxic than the nitrites in poppers which react violently with almost anything.

Nitrites (nitric acid from animal proteins) and the products into which they break down have long been known to scientists for their ability to mutate DNA. According to a former nitrite researcher with the United States Centers for Disease Control, dosage from popper inhalation is likely to exceed that from eating processed deli meat by one million times! In addition, these elements are not considered as critical factors by the so-called scientific community. But neither are drug abuse in general, dirty needles, over-the-counter and prescription drugs such as antibiotics, alcohol-consumption, anti-fungals and other immunosuppressive chemicals, many of which are present in the HIV positive population.

Popper use has been associated with an AIDS indicator called pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP). PCP is responsible for half of the AIDS mortality rates in North America and Europe. Candidiasis is responsible for another 17%. This means that yeast which is primarily a symptom of dis-ease contributes to 67% of all AIDS-related deaths in those countries. However, the drug factor increases susceptibility to an immune system-destroying “virus,” even though no one has ever proved that one actually exists.

In the first recorded AIDS patient, a yeast infestation of the lungs brought on pneumonia and oral thrush. This thick overgrowth of candida with their acidic mycotoxins choked the patient to death. He died from an overdose of mycotoxins (acids) rather than the ravages of the retrovirus. A Way Home Cellular immunity is not the first line of defense against out-fections.

Fallout from the false germ theory has created the confusion of symptoms and disease.

Our immune function is our body’s (white blood cell) janitorial service that keeps the body clean and recycles dead material. In neutralizing the acids from germs and outside toxins, this system may easily become over-worked or suppressed and is already busy enough in a healthy body.

The key is not to stimulate the immune system, but to restore it. The first line of defense is an alkaline balanced and nutrified system that will prevent biological transformation of body cells to bacteria, yeast and finally the mold that create the symptoms we call disease.

I have developed a drug-free natural protocol with special liquid antioxidants known as Glutathione ( which will cleanse the body of acidic toxic overload, control the population of recycling micro-organisms to help renew and balance the body’s alkaline system enabling it to maintain health. It has been successful in a number of individual cases.

More Reasons to Stop Eating Animal Proteins

A pair of recent studies have identified potential health problems related to the consumption of processed meats, including breast cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The consumption of red and processed meats was linked to a higher incidence of breast cancer, a connection that was particularly strong among postmenopausal women.

One explanation may be the acidic compounds produced when meat is grilled, such as heterocyclic amines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, that have been shown to promote tumor growth.

Another study of more than 7,000 patients — most of them seniors — showed that cured, processed meats like ham, bacon and sausage were connected to lower lung functioning and a much higher risk for COPD, even taking into account numerous dietary and other risk factors.
Patients who consumed the most processed meats often ate fewer alkalizing fruits and vegetables than others did as well, which may have compounded the problem.

Dr. Young has suggested that the acids from animal proteinssuch as nitric, uric, sulphuric and phosphuric acid may bethe primary cause of cancerous tissue. When acidsfrom animal proteins penetrate the cell they spoil the cell causing the body to go into a protective mode.

One of the ways in which the body protects itself fromacidic cells is to encapsulate these spoiled or cancerous cells with fibrin nets which then forms the tumor. The tumorbecomes the solution to protect healthy cells and tissesfrom spoiling from acidic cells and tissues.

Dr. Young has also found that a tri-peptide and superanti-oxidant can prevent and in some cases reversethe affects of toxic acid residues from acidic lifestylesand diets. This super antioxidant is known as glutathioneand is now available in an all natural liquid form.

The 1918 Spanish Flu Epidemic and Toxic Drugs/Vaccines

A report comparing how well the city of St. Louis survived the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 versus those living in Philadelphia has uncovered some of the reasons that St. Louis fared significantly better.

Most importantly, St. Louis officials took steps sooner than Philadelphia did to limit the symptoms associated with the flu once the first cases were reported.

However, St. Louis did not act by doling out drugs and vaccines; instead, officials enforced shutdowns of public schools, churches and other places where people congregate and very likely may be exposed, while quarantining those with flu like symptoms from the healthy.

Because Philadelphia officials delayed their preparations by two weeks, the death toll in that city was more than double that of St. Louis. More than 700 out of every 100,000 Philadelphians died during the 1918 flu epidemic (a total of more than 12,000) versus 347 per 100,000 in St. Louis.

The CDC noted that ‘those who used nonpharmaceutical measures effectively were able to mitigate the impact of the severe pandemics, and this is consistent with some of the 21st-century simulation models.’

Dr. Young has suggested that the cure for any disease is found in its prevention not in its treatment. And prevention is found in maintaining the alkaline design of the body.

Here are a few preventative alkalizing suggestions:

1) Never take antibiotics, they are all acidic.

2) Never take antifungal, they are all acidic.

3) Never take a vaccination, they are all acidic.

4) Before taking any drug make sure there are NO acidic ingredients.

5) Eat an alkaline diet – Read The pH Miracle and The pH Miracle for Weight Loss.

6) Live an alkaline lifestyle – Read The pH Miracle and The pH Miracle for Weight Loss.

7) Always drink alkaline water (at least 1 liter per 30 lbs of weight).

8) Take antioxidants.

For more information on antioxidants go to:

9) Eat alkalizing salt daily.

10) Exercise daily.

11) Take an infared sauna daily.

12) Test your urine and saliva pH daily.

13) Maintain your urine and saliva pH over 7.2 and if you are dealing with a serious challenge maintain your urine pH over 8.

14) Have a one hour lymphatic massage at least once a week and if financially possible everyday.

15) Monitor your live and dried blood at least four times a year.

What Happened To That Imaginary Bird Flu Epidemic?

What Happened to That Imaginary Bird Flu Epidemic?

The strain of bird flu that can be deadly to humans appears not to have moved through the world with migrating flocks of wild birds, despite scientists’ fears.

Thousands of wild birds were tested in a wide variety of countries. There was no sign of the virus at all in Africa, and only sparse detections in Europe. It is unknown to scientists why bird flu is not spreading in the wild more widely and quickly. (But not unknown to us when we understand the New Biology)

More than 13,000 wild birds were tested since February in the Netherlands, a major bird migration route. None have carried the virus. The EU has started to ease restrictions in recent weeks, but continues to strictly regulate poultry in farms near wildlife water reserves and river deltas.

Despite all those ‘Chicken Little’ warnings from so-called ‘health experts,’ that rumored bird flu epidemic — predicted to kill some 2 million Americans — turned out to be a whole lot of hot air.
When you know the true cause of dis-ease which is the over-acidification of the blood and tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating and thinking then you understand this imaginary bird flu virus has more to do about selling more drugs and making more money for big business then protecting our health.

The Truth About the Stomach

A review of available research indicates that the more processed meat you eat, the more likely you are to develop stomach cancer.

Processed meats include bacon, sausage, hot dogs, salami, ham, and smoked or cured meat. The review looked at 40 years’ worth of studies on the relationship between these meats and stomach cancer. Some of the studies examined hundreds and thousands of people.

Processed meat consumption among study participants ranged from less than 1 gram of processed meat per day to more than 56 grams. Higher processed meat intake was associated with greater stomach cancer risk, especially for bacon.

However, factors other than processed acidic meats may also be involved.

Those factors that can lead to a cancerous state in the stomach or other organs include other acidic foods and drinks such as:

1) All dairy products produce lactic acid.

2) All animal products including fish and eggs produce nitric, urinc, sulphuric and phosphuric acid.

3) All sugars produce acetylaldehyde and alcohol.

4) All carbonated drinks contain carbonic acid.

5) Alcoholic beverages contains the acid alcohol.

6) Black tea contains tanic acid.

7) Coffee contains the acid caffeine.

8) Chocolate contains the acids of bromine.

9) Cigarettes contain the acids of sugar and nicotine.

10) Emotional stress produces excess hydrochloric acidin the stomach.

Modern medical science teaches that the stomachshould be acidic at a pH of 1.5 to 3.0. This is one ofthe biggest scientific myths of the 20th and 21stcenturies. The truth is this:

1) The stomach is NOT an organ of digestion butan organ of contribution.

2) The main contribution that the stomach makesis the creation of sodium bicarbonate to
alkalizethe foods and liquids we eat, not digest them.

3) The healthy pH of the stomach is at least 7.2.

4) As the stomach releases sodium bicarbonateto alkalize the food and liquids we eat, the pH of the stomach can go up as high as 8.4.

5) To prevent stomach cancer you must maintainthe alkaline pH of the stomach with alkaline foods and drinks.

6) The hydrochloric acid residues in the stomach are not a digestive enzyme but an acidic waste product of sodium bicarbonate production by the cover cells of the stomach.

7) The chemical equation is as follows: NaCl + H20 + CO2 NaHCO3 + HCL orSodium
Chloride (Salt) + Water + Carbon Dioxide equals Sodium Bicarbonate + Hydrochloric Acid.

8) The Sodium Bicarbonate made by the cover cells of the stomach rises to the surface of the stomach to alkalize the foods and liquids we ingestand the hydrochloric acid falls into the gastric pits of the stomach, away from the food and liquidsthat we eat.

9) Hydrochloric acid is an acidic waste product of sodium bicarbonate and is poisonous
to the body.

10) Nausea is the body in need of the alkaline buffer sodium bicarbonate during times of
emotional and/or physical stress.

11) The stomach is an alkalizing organ that protects the alkaline design of all other organs.

12) The stomach is responsible for producing the sodium bicarbonate secreted by the salivary glands, the pyloric glands, the pancreas, and the gall bladder.

13) The stomach receives the raw materials to make sodium bicarbonate from the blood.

14) Never take supplements or drugs that contain hydrochloric acid or other enzymes like, protease, lipase or amylase. They will compromise the alkaline pH of the alimentary canal leading to serious health challenges.

15) To prevent nausea, acid reflux, ulcers and cancerous cells, eat, drink and take supplements that are alkalizing.

16) Always remember that the human body is alkalineby design but acidic by function. As you maintain that alkaline design you will improve the quatlity and thequantity of your life.

This is why I created Young pHorever pHour salts which is an equal combination of the four most important salts for the body – sodium bicarbonate, magnesium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate and calcium bicarbonate.

1000 Bananas for God

Back in March, I emailed you an article about Mother Theresa whose level of consciousness allowed her to function in love, joy, peace and enlightenment. Many said they enjoyed that article. Such states of mind—whether they are linked to experiences that are primarily sensory, emotional, psychological, intellectual or spiritual—can only be accompanied by an absence of stress at the physiological or body level.

If you read my emails with any consistency, then you know that there is a solid scientific link between the mind and the body, the psychosomatic or the somatopsychic. It goes both ways. The mind can cause the body to suffer and the body can cause the mind to suffer. Therefore, it makes good sense to take care of both.

I have discussed from time to time the importance of minimizing stress in our lives. When our minds are filled with thoughts and feelings that include the “negative” perceptions and experiences of fear, anger and sadness, we are vulnerable to the creation of excessive bodily acid. Toxic acids are actually secreted from various parts of the body directly into the bloodstream when we are in a negative emotional state.

On the other hand, leading a life that includes more experiences in what we might call the “love zone” is a challenge. The “love zone” includes feelings of affection, joy, compassion, empathy, kindness, happiness and bliss. Living in this zone—as you have probably noticed—is easier said than done. The world seems so often to pull mightily at the most vulnerable areas of our lives and keeps us from entering or staying in the stress-free “love zone.”

There is one thing in particular that we can do to help us frequent this zone as much as possible. And I will back into this concept with a little story which I enjoy. I call this the “1,000 bananas for God” story. It goes like this:

A plantation owner, somewhat foolishly accustomed to bartering with God, prayed for a good harvest. He pleaded thusly:

“Dear God, if You would please bring me a great banana harvest, as a service I will give You 1,000 bananas from the harvest.”

God granted him a great harvest. Thus, the plantation owner loaded up a thousand bananas in his wagon and had his foreman deliver them to the temple. Along the way, the foreman was pestered by two little beggar boys who pleaded for a banana to ward off their hunger. “Shoo, shoo, go away,” said the foreman, knowing that the plantation owner had loaded exactly 1,000 bananas.

The hungry little boys ran along side the wagon and continued to beg. Finally, the hired hand gave each of them a banana. He thought to himself, “Who would count all these bananas and know that two are missing from a thousand?”

But the plantation owner had warned the chief overseer of the temple to count the bananas to make sure that the foreman had not sold some along the way. He found out that two were missing and had been given to beggars and he fired the foreman.

That night the plantation owner had a dream. In his dream God came to him and said, “I have granted your prayer for a great harvest, but you have not kept your agreement.”

The plantation owner pleaded his case, “But God, I took the bananas to you as I said.”

God replied, “Well, I am sorry that you are in error my friend, because so far, I have received only two.”

I think you can see why I enjoy this story. And it has many implications far beyond the simple notion that Divine Providence and charity are related. In fact, we might say that Divine Providence “resonates” to charity.

There is a great deal of emerging evidence and a wonderful, new area of study which says that there is a human field of energy which is very subtle, yet powerful, pervasive and immortal. There is a field of energy which connects every one of us to every one of us. Some refer to this as levels of consciousness—and the study of this energy focuses especially on states of higher consciousness.

Regardless of our personal level of consciousness, we are not only connected to this field of energy, but we are influencing it just as it influences us in return. There is research evidence that says that as our level of consciousness rises, our body has an increasing ability or tendency to heal itself.

In the book “Power Vs. Force,” our “levels” of consciousness (from low to high) are designated as shame guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, pride, courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace, and enlightenment. The corresponding emotions at those levels are humiliation, blame, despair, regret, anxiety, craving, hate, scorn, affirmation, trust, optimism, forgiveness, understanding, reverence, serenity, bliss and ineffable.

By contemplating upon these two hierarchies of human levels of consciousness and corresponding emotions, you can easily see the beauty that unfolds as we achieve higher and higher levels of consciousness.

The simple question then becomes, “What is it that I can do to help myself achieve an increasing degree of health and serenity in my own life?”

As I have written before, a healthy and peaceful lifestyle includes choosing an alkaline and nutritional diet, rest and relaxation, doing work which we enjoy, body massage, meditation, and so on. And yet, it can be argued that this alone will not help us to understand or come to terms with the disarray we see in the human condition that surrounds us.

Therefore, what else is it that we can do to feel a greater sense of love or acceptance toward so many people with whom we seem to have nothing in common, little understanding, a different set of values, and with whom we perceive ourselves to operate from a completely different belief system about the world?

How do we come to a sense of “peace” and diminish our reflexive stress—the same stress that causes acidic reactions in our body—to the many seemingly unacceptable human elements that surround us?

I believe that science will soon confirm what some have known over the millennia. Virtually all Holy Scripture is in accordance with the idea that the highest devotion to God—man’s greatest gift to the energy field of the world in which we are all encompassed—is “service to mankind.” Research into higher consciousness tells us that this energy of service is recorded in the universe on into infinity.

One of the greatest stress-releasing gifts we can give to ourselves is to give the “gift of service” to others. Nothing fosters charitable feelings like charitable actions. Nothing fosters more the acceptance of other people than lending a helping hand. Nothing will bring forth the peace and wisdom that we need to create within ourselves more than providing service to the poor, the needy, the uneducated, the downtrodden, and the afflicted.

Look for service projects in your area and take your family into the world to help others. And over time, nothing will help you to diminish the stress inside your own body more than helping to diminish the stress in those around us.

What goes round comes round, and whether your load of bananas means abundant energy, creativity, intelligence, leadership, money or time, for everyone in the world, I know you can figure out how to deliver more than two.

In love and healing light,

Dr. Robert O. Young

Vitamin C – Helpful or Harmful?

I have been know to call vitamin C the urine acid of citrus fruits. Vitamin C is an acid known as ascorbic acid that when mixed into foods and supplements must be chemically transformed into esters to be consumable. Vitamin C is destroyed by exposure to oxygen, metals, light and heat…therefore one can surely imagine what happens to it when it is processed.

Vitamin C is believed to be an antioxidant because oxidants (acids) that are in the body will oxidize (take electrons from) ascorbate first before affecting the body’s proteins and lipids. This leaves oxidized forms of ascorbate. Oxidized ascorbate is believed to be relatively stable and unreactive and is believed notto cause cellular damage.

I have disagreed for years and believe that over time a cumulative affect of taking in vitamin C, especially in unnatural and processed forms, is harmful just like taking too many enzymes (acids) too often and thereby tenderizing yourself. The name ‘ascorbic’ comes from its supposed property of preventing and curing scurvy. The scientific name of vitamin C, ascorbic acid, is derived from the Latin name of scurvy, scorbutus. Scurvy leads to the formation of liver spots on the skin, spongy gums, and bleeding from all mucous membranes. The spots are most abundant on the thighs and legs, and a person with the ailment looks pale, feels depressed, and is partially immobilized.

Yet, these are all symptoms of overacidity. In advanced scurvy, there are open, suppurating wounds and loss of teeth. Scurvy was at one time common among sailors, pirates, and others who were on ships that were out to sea longer than perishable fruits and vegetables could be stored and by soldiers who were similarly separated from these foods for extended periods.

Medical Science believes that Scurvy results from lack of Vitamin C, but I have gone on record to disagree. I say that that scurvy is caused by dehydration and a diet of dead and animal-based foods causing over-acidification of the blood and tissues leading to cellular breakdown into bacteria, yeast, and mold and the destruction of microvilli in the small intestine much like a rotting banana or piece of fruit getting mushy with dark spots.

The Dutch writer, Johann Bachstrom, in 1734, gave the firm opinion that ‘scurvy is solely owing to a total abstinence from fresh vegetable food, and greens which is alone the primary cause of the disease.’

While the earliest documented case of scurvy was described by Hippocrates around the year 400 BC, the first attempt to give scientific basis for the cause of this disease was by a ship’s surgeon in the British Royal Navy, James Lind. Again, it was well known that Scurvy was common among those with little access to fresh fruit and vegetables such as remote and isolated sailors and soldiers.

While at sea in May 1747, Lind provided some crew members with two oranges and one lemon per day, in addition to normal rations, while others continued on cider, vinegar, sulfuric acid or seawater, along with their normal rations. In the history of science this is considered to be the first occurrence of a controlled experiment comparing results on two populations of a factor applied to one group only with all other factors the same.

Lind published his work in 1753 in his Treatise on Scurvy which conclusively showed that citrus fruits prevented the disease. NOTE: These were whole natural and unprocessed fruits and lemons that are alkalizing and mineral rich as are limes which we will come to in a minute.

It wasn’t the vitamin C but rather the alkalinity, minerals, and combination of natural electrons which were operating. Citrus fruits were one of the first sources of vitamin C available to ship’s surgeons. Lind’s work was slow to be noticed, partly because he gave conflicting evidence within the book, and partly because the British admiralty saw care for the well-being of crews as a sign of weakness.

Further, fresh fruit was very expensive to keep on board, whereas boiling it down to juice allowed easy storage yet destroyed the vitamins and the electrons (especially if boiled in copper kettles). Ship captains assumed wrongly that Lind’s suggestions didn’t work because those juices failed to cure scurvy while not realizing that they were cooked and processed down and not in their natural energetic electron rich form!

The source of sickness and disease is the build up of acidity and blockages, starting in the small intestine, which is kind of lack clogging the drain to the point of overflow (cold, flu, etc).

Vitamin C produces positive results because it breaks down undigested matter (like chicken and pork) in the digestive tract which improves digestion and promotes elimination.

Human beings are poisoning themselves with Vitamin C by taking it in excess for everything.
It is totally unnecessary.

Again, it is like taking an excess of enzymes (acids) and tenderizing onesself. In my many years of viewing people’s blood and understanding their nutritional histories, I have never recommended that a person needs to take Vitamin C.

The only time I would recommend it is for supporting the bowel in severe congestive situations. If you are using Liquid Vitamin C, you are ingesting plenty and in a form that your body can use without harm. Plus, you get everything you need in terms of vitamin C by eating the pH Miracle diet of mostly vegetables, fats and low sugar fruits wherein Vitamin C naturally occurs.

What Causes Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimers and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Despite this decade’s medical explanation, a description of the ‘real’ Multiple Sclerosis occurs when the myelin sheath becomes sufficiently damaged from over-acidity. The myelin sheath is an electrically insulating phospholipid layer that surrounds the axons of many neurons. It is kind of like the rubber coating on a power cord that keep the electricity traveling forward rather then shooting out in all directions–virtually all over the place.

The main function of a myelin sheath is to increase the speed at which electrical impulses transmit and spread along the myelinated fibers. Along unmyelinated fibers (which are those nerve fibers that lack a fatty sheath) impulses move continuously as waves. But in myelinated fibers, they hop or advance quickly by leaps. Myelin increases resistance across the cell membrane by a factor of 5,000 and decreases the ability to collect a charge of electricity by a factor of 50. Thus, the impulses keep moving and are not absorbed.

Myelination also helps prevent the electrical current from leaving the axon. When a peripheral fiber is severed, the myelin sheath provides a track along which regrowth can occur because it is essential that the body be able to repair itself. Myelin is composed of about 80% lipid fat and about 20% protein.

Remember that fat is a major buffer of acidity! From the perspective of ‘New Biology,’ the loss of the myelin sheath insulating the nerves, otherwise known as demyelination, is caused by glucose, acetlyaldehyde,lactic acid, alcohol and other acids stripping this ‘fatty sheath’ off the nerves. When myelin degrades, conduction of signals along the nerve can be impaired or lost.

The nerve then eventually withers.

One of my foundational theories is that the body uses fat as a primary buffer of acidity. This is the hallmark of nerodegenerative autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Alzheimers or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Medical science believes that the immune system plays a role in the demyelination associated with such diseases as MS or ALS but the ‘New Biology’ does not support this.

The predominant theory of today’s medical science is that MS results from attacks by an individual’s immune system on the nervous system and is therefore usually categorized as an autoimmune disease. To the contrary, it is actually caused by the consumption of excess sugar (acid), carbohydrates (acid), artificial sweeteners (acid), heavy metal poisoning (acidic toxin), animal proteins (acid) and even from toxins that come from taking medication which includes mercury (more acid). Even small amounts of mercury have been shown to be particularly destructive to nerve sheaths. The white blood cells actually function like ‘garbage collectors.’ We can observe this in live blood analysis.

(By the way, our next microscopy course is June 11th through the 16th. For more information go to:

But modern medical science perceives the white blood cells as acting more like ‘soldiers.’ This is their word and their metaphor because they believe the white blood cells are ‘attacking’ the nervous system when in fact they are attracted by the need to perform their normal function–the need for a clean up.

Would Mother Nature send a garbage man to fight a war? No. Me neither! Tigers don’t change their stripes, and Mother Nature is consistent as to how body cells go about their job, despite how aggressively man shoots himself in the foot with his wayward nutritional lifestyle.

Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimers, ALS are all inflammatory dis-eases. Inflammation is just another word for acidity that affects the central nervous system and causes a variety of symptoms including changes in sensation, visual problems, muscle weakness, depression, speech and coordination difficulties, severe fatigue, short term memory loss, balance impairment, overheating and pain.

MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimers and ALS will cause increasingly impaired mobility and disability in more severe cases. (Just like in Polio years past. Did scientists change the name from Polio to MS so we could declare some illusionary cure?)

Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimers as well as ALS affects neurons. Neurons are the cells of the brain and spinal cord that carry information, create thought and perception, and allow the brain to control the body.

The name multiple sclerosis refers to the multiple scars (or scleroses) on the myelin sheaths. This scarring causes symptoms which vary widely depending upon which signals are interrupted. Whenever a patient is experiencing many symptoms that medical science can not otherwise fit into a particluar diagnosis, there is the tendency at this time in the historical unfolding of medicine to fall back on the convenient MS as the ‘multiple’ symptom diagnosis. (Even though the diagnosis may well be something else, likePolio. By the way, even Polio is caused by acidity!).

Thus, what is said to be MS, Parkinson’s Alzheimers, or ALS is a misunderstanding of the body’s alkaline design and acidic function and the use of a throwback catch-all diagnosistic category when no other present-day medically accepted explanation or cagtegory seems to fit. Every cell in the body regenerates itself over time, especially when the body receives the proper nutritional resources.

This means that the body must have plenty of living waters and foods like green vegetables and healthy fats which not only neutralize acids but provide the raw materials for building new red blood cells and, therefore, bodily cells which also include the rebuilding of nerves and the myelin sheath.

An all natural, non-nutritive liquid Glutathione, as a super antioxidant, will be directed at neutralizing the acids related to these particular imbalances while providing additional resources for red blood cell production.

However, no non-nutritive product is a magic bullet and a focus on appropriate nutrition and lifestyle is essential.

This means that one must take on the challenge of providing a responsible way of living, eating, and thinking including the reexamination of the various environments in which we most often find ourselves.
