July 4th, 2018 Today is Freedom Day Are We Truly Free?

Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the Greatest Freedom Fighters of our time!

Free at Last, Free at Last! Thank God I am Free at Last!

Several years ago I had the beautiful experience to speak freely at the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Chapel in Atlanta, Georgia on the campus of Morehouse College by Professor Dean Lawrence Carter, Jr. (below I am pictured with Professor Lawrence Carter, Dean of the Martin Luther King Chapel at More House College, Atlanta, Georgia.

When introducing me to speak at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Chapel, Dr. Carter stated, “Dr. Robert O. Young is the Martin Luther King Jr. of the 21st Century.”) It was one of my greatest memories to stand at the same pulpit where Martin Luther King, Jr., Ikada, Ghandi and Mandela delivered powerful messages of freedom, love and light. There in front of thousands I was blessed to have the opportunity to share my message of freedom, love and light. A message that has now blessed the lives of millions around the World. Thank you God for the blessing of service in my life. Thank you all for the opportunities you have given me to serve you, my brothers and sisters – my friends.

One of my favorite quotes of Martin Luther King, Jr. is one that has impacted my life in so many ways, “Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” Yes, it was hard to be incarcerated for 5 months at the East Mesa Re-entry Facility, but I want you all to know that I have no regrets! Today, I am so grateful to be home with my family and friends.

After almost 35 years of studying and learning about acid – base chemistry in vertebrates, and the same number of years attempting to share what I have observed and learned, I am enormously gratified to see the larger scientific community beginning to recognize and validate my work, research and discoveries. It has been a long journey out of darkness. Almost every day now some new scientific paper is published that validates my work such as the discovery of a new and the largest organ of the body called the interstitium. Recently at a scientific conference I heard a noted scientist say, “In certain conditions, we believe it is better to have the tissues properly alkalized.” He did not give me credit, but his knowledge came from my work. You have no idea how far the journey has been from where I started to hearing those words from a distinguished member of the scientific community.

I have lived with doubt and criticism for so long that I have come to understand it as actually encouraging and exciting. No one takes the time to write to a newspaper about something that does not interest them. When people take the time to read, investigate and try to understand and then to sit down and write to an editor to complain, what they are really doing is asking questions; asking the author to explain his or her self; to defend their work. It is wonderfully energetic and encouraging to see people interested and asking questions. Asking questions is the first step towards knowledge. It is a sign of courage and intellectual bravery to ask questions and seek knowledge.

We, as humans, live in such profound darkness. Not knowing what is in the dark is a very scary thing. We, like children, need to know there are no boogey men under the bed. The truth is adults are afraid too. We tell our children there are no boogey men, but we still look under the bed ourselves just to be sure. The truth is we don’t know so much more than we do know.

We live in a Universe of what Donald Rumsfeld, the former American Secretary of Defense, called “Unknown Unknowns”. The more we learn, the more we realize how much we still don’t know. Albert Einstein once quipped, “Intelligence is a very humbling thing. It makes us realize that what the greatest of us knows, pales in comparison to that which none of us knows”. Knowledge is always being accumulated. Much of it disturbs our serenity. We want to believe we know at least most of what is to be known. But, alas, we know so very little.

We are much better off today than most humans were when they died in their 30′s, of things like infected teeth, which dentists today deal with so easily, and from minor wounds, that surgeons today routinely stitch up in minor medical clinics. Our knowledge is greater than it was for even our parents. We continue to learn, in spite of our very human desire to believe we already know most of what we need to know. Today it is said that all of human knowledge is compounding about every 3 years. In other words, we will learn more in the next 3 years than we have learned in our entire previous recorded history. My work is in that record. Today the medical professions, and healers around the world are just beginning to understand what I have been teaching for over 3 decades.

The very thing that people complain about, is actually a result of the broader acceptance of my work in the scientific community. When someone writes, “I…was shocked to discover a number of UK companies promoting practices and diets based on his theories.” It both excites and encourages me that people are finally beginning to “get it.” I can understand why “getting it” is so unnerving. It recognizes that all along there has been a boogey man under the bed that we did not know was there! The good news is, now that we know that living an acidic lifestyle will make us sick, and accelerate aging and hastens death, we can do something about it! Just like now we can treat infected teeth and stitch up wounds, that once killed us at a very early age.

I still laugh every now and then about a joke I heard on the old American Hee Haw TV show years ago, “Junior” said, “A man told me he broke his leg in two places. I told him the thing to do was to stay out of those places!” It’s the same with an acidic lifestyle. If the things you are doing are making you sick, then stop doing them! As it has been said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

I have had people object to my saying that an HIV, Ebola or Zika Virus does not cause AIDS or disease. A great percentage of the larger scientific community does not believe that either. Are you familiar with the name Luc Antoine Montagnier? He received the Nobel Prize in medicine for discovering the HIV virus. Where is he NOW? He was a World Famous Professor and Scientist at the University of Paris. In 2011, Dr, Montagnier lost his position at the University of Paris and was exiled to China. Why? Because he reversed his position on the so-called HIV virus, its existence and cause of AIDS. How would I know this? Because we lectured together as the Key Note Speakers in October, 2011 in Milan, Italy and he shared his horrific story with me. I am in good company. The way to shut us all up is not to exile us or to through us in jail, but for someone to prove that HIV, Ebola or Zika actually does cause AIDS or disease. using the scientific method called, Koch’s postulates. That hasn’t been done, because it can’t be done. HIV, Hep C, Ebola and Zika are all phantom viruses. Scientists have never isolated these viruses or proven that they cause any disease. In fact, everyone in Brazil knows that Zika is not a virus and does not cause birth defects. They know that these birth defects are being caused by eating fruit and vegetables that are laced with an acidic toxic chemical called Glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine), a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant.

Some people object to my theory of multiforms or pleomorphism and the origins of what are called bacteria, yeast, mold and viruses. But, you don’t have to know or understand the origins of these biological forms to understand that if your body is properly alkalized none of them can reproduce and none of them can cause any of the ill effects thought to be associated with them. How these biological forms arise is, and has been for centuries, a great debate. The proof of my work is in the results. For at least a century, it has been known that cancers form and thrive only in overly acidic tissue.” I did not develop that knowledge, I only explained it. Don’t blame the messenger for the message.

Diabetes is another condition that has been largely misunderstood. For decades the way the medical community dealt with diabetes was only to treat the symptoms. The symptoms were targeted, because it was not known what causes diabetes. I like to say, we have always known what caused diabetes, we just did not like the answer. The answer has always been, change your lifestyle, and change your diet! But, we humans like our cures to fit our lifestyles not to adjust our lifestyles to prevent the conditions. You want to turn diabetes around over night? Get all of the animal proteins out of your diet, along with all of the simple carbohydrates and sugars, stop drinking acidic beverages, and eating highly acid foods, add back in the alkaline green plants and simply watch what happens. Learn the cause and the self-cure for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes by reading The pH Miracle for Diabetes!

 

Here is something fun for your family members to do. Go on the Internet and Google “Eggs cause Diabetes.” I have been saying that for years to howls of criticism. Now the larger scientific community is beginning to understand what I have been saying, and my critics are stunned… What!?

ALL animal proteins are acidic and cause degenerative conditions we like to call diseases. Sorry.. it’s the message that is not liked. I’m just the messenger.

One last thing, I get criticized frequently because I did not receive my Ph.D. from Harvard or Johns Hopkins, or some other favored institution. I wish I could have afforded those institutions, but the schools I attended were and are fine institutions. Snob appeal does not make a good institution. We just love to establish ranks of exclusions. In the U. S. to have attended a fine engineering school you need to have attended MIT, or Stanford… most recently California Institute of Technology has taken the lead, but the truth is the Indian Institute of Technology in India is widely recognized as the finest engineering school in the World.

Institutions do not make the quality of their students. The students make the quality of the Institutions. In fact, institutions do not “teach” creativity or innovation. All institutions do is teach what is presently known, not what is yet to be discovered. More often than not, throughout time, our greatest discoveries have come from individuals with very little formal education, Steve Jobs from Apple, Mark Zuckerberg, the guy that started Facebook and Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft. Unfettered by dogma and entrenched lore, visionaries look at the world with new eyes and see things others could not or cannot see.

I am very proud of the knowledge I was given by the institutions I attended, but I am most proud of the work I have done that has expanded that knowledge and built on what was known when I was in University… work that after 35 plus years is finally being recognized and validated… work that is finally reaching the victims of ignorance, and making a difference in their lives.

What I encourage everyone to do, especially my critics, is to continue to read, study, ponder, listen and learn; take charge of your own health and do what works! This is how I have come to all of my conclusions… watching and studying what works, and building on that evidence. Scholars can argue about WHY an apple falls from the tree, but the important thing is to note is that it does!

God bless you all and God bless America with the capacity to love one another and NEVER turn away from a soul who is in need of a helping hand. I promise you it will do your soul good.

In Love and God’s Healing Light,

PS What Does It Mean to be Truly Free?

What is freedom if it is not to be free in every way, from our most minute cell to our most expansive dreams? He is free who can afford to let the interactions between the cell and spirit take place in a most harmonious and loving way. There is no freedom in the philosophies of men. Freedom of that sort lasts for only a duration of a thought, of an act. To be truly free is to be able to establish peace between all opposition within us! To realize that the circumstances of our lives are not important as compared to the kindness, thoughtfulness, acceptance, understanding, and love we show to others.

In the Garden of Indian Wisdom

Screen Shot 2018-05-19 at 11.53.38 PM

Ancient Ayurvedic medicine has found a new home at Acquaforte Thalasso & Spa. The same gentleness, the same intensity, the same wisdom. The result is our splendid Ayurvedic Park in the most secluded corner of our garden. Massages, yoga lessons, pilates. The body, relaxes, it listens, and it is happy.

Abhyanga

This is the “crowning” massage of Ayurvedic medicine. Hands glide over the body and envelop it in the warmth of oil perfumed with aromatic Indian essences, spices and medicinal plants. The effects are instant and profound: the blood and lymph circulation is reactivated, the spine relaxes, the muscles are toned and the body eliminates toxins, stress and fatigue.

Forteveda signature massage

First and foremost, posture and suppleness. This massage with Ayurvedic oil based on Indian herbs relaxes muscles and ligaments and ensures the posture of the body is correct, relaxed and harmonious.

Screen Shot 2018-05-19 at 11.54.04 PM

Shirodara and four hands treatment

Just say the word “shirodara” and you are whisked away to another dimension, with a massage that reaches into the very depths of your psyche. Opening the door to the mind and releasing all the tension is a trickle of warm oil that anoints the forehead. At the same time the therapists’ hands glide over the body and help you achieve inner peace in the gentlest way possible.

Hatha Flow & Vinyasa

From the very ancient discipline of yoga, a smooth series of asana to be performed by harmonizing the breath and movements, in order to control the hold and the configuration of every position.

Gentle Hatha

Ideal for all levels of physical ability, this gentle yoga combines a sequence of relaxing postures to practice meditation. What you gain is a new awareness helping you to balance body and mind perfectly.

Younga Yoga

From meditation, a new kind of suppleness

From the age-old wisdom of the East comes the answer to the problems we suffer from today: stress and anxiety, not to mention bad posture and stiffness. We are talking about yoga, a meditative practice that combines a spiritual quest with a vision that regenerates the body and breathing. In keeping with the holistic vision of its treatments and in the peace of its garden, Acquaforte Thalasso & Spa has set aside a special area for yoga, its schools and its most authoritative maestros.

In particular, Acquaforte Thalasso & Spa offers Yin Yoga that works on the “yin”, as against the dynamic “yang”, concentrating on the ligaments, tendons and joints. This discipline allows all the muscles to relax and strengthens the deepest connective tissue, improving flexibility and the whole body’s capacity for movement.

Could Sodium or Potassium Bicarbonate save your life? Low levels of bicarbonate ‘are linked to a 24 % higher risk of early death!

Could Sodium or Potassium Bicarbonate save your life? Low levels of bicarbonate 'are linked to a 24 % higher risk of early death!

Robert Young PhD

Naturopathic Practitioner – The pH Miracle Ti Sana Detox Medical Spa

Could Sodium or Potassium Bicarbonate save your life? Low levels of bicarbonate ‘are linked to a 24 % higher risk of early death!

  • Compound in baking soda – bicarbonate – reduces early death, study found
  • Baking soda – or sodium bicarbonate – helps regulate pH levels  
  • People with low bicarbonate levels have 24% higher risk of early death
  • People should ingest fruit and green vegetables to get more bicarbonate!

Many of us think of baking soda as little more than a vital part of the recipe to making a cake or baking cookies.

But two new studies have found that the ingredients of sodium and/or potassium bicarbonate plays a far more important role in human health: It can help save lives.

Older people with low levels of sodium and/or potassiumbicarbonate – which is found in baking soda – have a 24 per cent higher risk of dying an early death!

The findings suggest increasing bicarbonate levels can prolong a person’s life.

Study author Dr Kalani Raphael, of the University of Utah, said: ‘What we found was that generally healthy older people with low levels of bicarbonate had a higher risk of death.’

Sodium bicarbonate, a main component of baking powder, reduces the risk of premature death, scientists revealed. Older people with low bicarbonate levels are 24 per cent more likely to die young, a study found

The kidneys and lungs work together by varying the levels of sodium and/or potassium bicarbonate – a base or alkaline compound – and carbon dioxide – an acid – in the blood, interstitial fluids and intracellular fluids.

Sodium and potassium bicarbonate helps keep the body’s pH in a healthy range (7.365), which allows the body cells that make up our organs to work properly.

Critically ill patients with severe acid-base abnormalities have very low levels of sodium and/or potassium bicarbonate and are very unlikely of surviving their illness, according to the study.

Yet, it has been unclear whether more subtle changes to the body’s acid-base status affect the longevity of relatively healthy older people.

A team of scientists investigated how measurements of pH, carbon dioxide and bicarbonate are associated with long-term survival in healthy older people.

They analyzed data from 2,287 participants in the health, aging and body composition study.

That data focused on well-functioning black and white adults between the ages of 70 and 79.

Data started being collected in 1997 – with collection efforts extending through February 2014.

Each of the participants were followed for an average of 10.3 years.

Scientists recommend people with low levels of sodium and/or potassium bicarbonate should increase their intake of foods that produce it in the body, including fruit and green vegetables.

Because of the study’s results, blood bicarbonate concentrations – which are already commonly measured – may allow clinicians to better identify people with a higher risk of premature death.

Those with low sodium and potassium bicarbonate levels may benefit from increasing their intake of foods that produce bicarbonate in the body – including fruit and vegetables, according to the scientists.

The study was published in the Clinical Journal of American Nephrology.  The study by Dr. Robert O. Young has been approved for publication in The International Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

Ten Acidic Signs That Your Liver is Toxic and Sick!

liver-disease-s1a-did-you-knowLiver disease is any disturbance of liver function that causes illness. The liver is responsible for many critical functions within the body and should it become dis-eased or injured, the loss of those functions can cause significant damage to the body.  Liver dis-ease is also referred to as hepatic dis-ease.

Liver dis-ease is a broad term that covers all the potential problems that cause the liver to fail to perform its designated functions. Usually, more than 75% or three-quarters of liver tissue needs to be affected before a decrease in function occurs.

The liver is the largest solid organ in the body; and is also considered a gland because among its many functions, it makes and secretes an alkaline substance called bile. The liver is located in the upper right portion of the abdomen protected by the rib cage. It has two main lobes that are made up of tiny lobules. The liver cells have two different sources of blood supply. The hepatic artery supplies oxygen rich blood that is pumped from the heart, while the portal vein supplies alkalizing minerals from the large intestine and the spleen.

Normally, veins return blood from the body to the heart, but the portal vein allows alkaline minerals from the large intestines to enter the liver for “detoxification” and filtering prior to entering the general circulation. The portal vein also efficiently delivers minerals and fats that liver cells need to produce the proteins, cholesterol, and electrons required for normal body activities.

There are several early signs of  an acidic liver to understand in order to protect the liver and its many functions from sickness and dis-ease.
Without a fully functioning liver,  your health and wellbeing will be compromised.  Fortunately your liver is capable of repairing and renewing itself every six weeks.  Understanding the following acidic liver conditions and spotting them early,  will help to prevent and/or reverse a serious life-threatening degenerative live dis-ease.

livertoxicity

Warning Sign # 1 – Skin discoloration – Jaundice

One of the early signs of excess liver acidity and the beginning of liver dis-ease is the liver’s inability to filter out all of the dietary and/or metabolic toxins from the blood.  With a build-up of toxins this may also lead to a build-up of Bilirubin which is a breakdown product of the blood.  The breakdown of the blood which increases bilirubin is caused by an acidic lifestyle, diet, congested liver and gallbladder and constipation of the elimination organs,  The body and specifically the gallbladder uses bile  to help alkalize the food ingested coming out of the stomach.  When the body cannot evacuate Bilirubin from the liver/gallbladder and blood via the bowels, it will accumulate in the bloodstream and results in the skin taking on a yellowish hue.  This yellowing can also affect the fingernails, the tips of the fingers, and especially the eyes. This acidic condition caused by an acidic lifestyle and diet is known as Jaundice.  Read, share and like more:

A Self-Care to a Self-Cure For Terminal Metastatic Kidney Cancer!

“Phenomenal!” Just had my blood analyzed, as I’m about to embark on an intense purification program and needed to pass all health checks prior to starting. After speaking with the doctor who can authorize me to attend the program, he stated that my bloodwork was quote; “Phenomenal…!”

The doctor in question told me he is actually jealous of my cholesterol levels!! I wanted to educate the guy on how to obtain a healthy body, to simply stop putting poison into it, namely the food and drink supply.

shutterstock_101480413

Considering that I was given a diagnosis of metastatic Kidney cancer (Unclassified renal cell carcinoma with a sarcomatoid component – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12187197 ) with an average of ‘4.3 months’ survival almost 3 years ago, I think this result, if not the fact that I’m still alive today, happy and never healthier in my life, is another nail in the coffin for the corrupt, defunct medical system that insists on ‘Poisoning us back to good health.’ 

pet-scan-composit

Walking away from the insane medical system almost 3 years ago and adopting a clean, alkaline, organic, vegan lifestyle saved my life.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food!”

If you’re under the illusion that the food supply is healthy, think again. The food supply is the largest, corporate, weaponized poison delivery system in human history.

What is about to come down that supply line is a ‘poison’ (The final solution) that will affect everyone eating it. Population reduction 101. Start making plans to get to know and trust your food supplier personally, now, not tomorrow or start to grow your own…….

Here’s to the next phenomenal result that awaits me and a life dedicated to speaking this truth!

Kate Hudson Swears By an Alkaline Diet (?) Here’s What She Eats, Plus Her Secret To Her Flat Abs

Kate Hudson Swears By an Alkaline Diet. Here’s What She Eats, Plus The Secret To Her Flat Abs

fWwF-nkQa3fGkPpuHKoe_RjZm5o

Kate Hudson and her brother, Oliver Hudson, won the genetic lottery. There’s no question about that. But these two good-looking siblings don’t just rest on their laurels—both lead active, healthy lifestyles and serve as brand ambassadors for Fabletics and FL2 (the new men’s activewear line), respectively. I met up with the Hudson siblings to stare at Kate’s abs and Oliver’s eyes and find out all of their healthy secrets.

Let’s start with your least favorite workout.
“Oh, gosh. Sprints!” Oliver said.

“See, I like sprints,” Kate responded.

“In the beach? In the dry sand? Brutal,” Oliver added. I nod in agreement.

“I think my least favorite workout is just weights. Boring! I love SoulCycle, I really like—there’s this thing called Bella Core in LA, I really like them. It’s like ballet barre. I love Brazilian Butt Lift, it’s like a DVD, and then there’s a girl who actually does something similar in LA.”

Kate, please tell us the secret to your abs.
“You just have to work out abs. For me, I think food, too, is huge. But I’ve been doing Pilates for so many years, my main workout is always focused on the core. It’s mainly core. When everything starts from the core, I think that’s where the strength comes from and that should be the center of everything.”

“Pilates is amazing,” adds Oliver.

“I think that men should be doing Pilates,” Kate says.

Do you guys eat healthy all the time? What’s your diet like?
The siblings look at each other and laugh. “I had a lot of crap last night,” Oliver says.

“We did,” Kate confirms. “Our family likes food and loves to have fun. We’re not like a regimented, crazy, you know, everything needs to be perfect [type of family].”

OK. But, like, your abs…
“So, here’s what I do,” Kate says, springing forward in her chair ready to get down to business. “Because I want to be as healthy as possible, I eat alkaline. That’s my go-to. Yesterday I cheated because I was flying and there was food… but it’s no dairy, it’s no wheat, it’s gluten-free, no meat, and no sugar. I just cut all of that out. And no wine and no beer—only vodka and only tequila, straight up.”

How strict are you about the alcohol? (Alcohol is NOT alkalizing and is damaging to the liver and pancreas and the number 1 cause of liver and pancreatic cancer)
“That’s just my benchmark. Other than that, if I’m out and Oliver and I end up, you know, going wine tasting, I’ll have a great glass or two of wine.”

“Is wine heavy in calories?” asks Oliver.

“It’s just acidic,” Kate answers. “So what happens it all reduces… your body becomes acidic. When you start to become more alkaline, it’s just basically healthier. Everything digests better, your blood is [at a proper pH balance.”

What’s your favorite breakfast? (Eggs are NOT Part of the Alkaline Diet and one of the top ten foods never to eat)
“I love eggs. Soft boiled eggs. I do a 5-minute soft-boiled egg—it’s my favorite thing on the planet. And when I was a little girl my mom used to make soft-boiled eggs and I hated it. They were so runny.” She shrivels up her face as she talks about it.

“She made ‘em soft. Real soft! Like with a straw!” He imitates sucking up runny eggs through a straw and Kate recoils.

“Stop! Stop! So gross. Oliver, stop! Stop! Stop!” she screams. Star siblings: They’re just like us.

How do you deal with the blowout vs. workout hair conundrum?
“I just put it in a bun. Honestly, there’s a reason why my hair is in a bun all the time. Just put it up, show off those ears, and just, like, go. Every once in a while I’ll take a shower and I’ll be like, oh, it settled nice! That’s not very often. I’m naturally curly and weird and it’s really… I have really high-maintenance hair.”

The Alkaline Diet: Is There Evidence That an Alkaline pH Diet Benefits Health?

Abstract

This review looks at the role of an alkaline diet in health. Pubmed was searched looking for articles on pH, potential renal acid loads, bone health, muscle, growth hormone, back pain, vitamin D and chemotherapy. Many books written in the lay literature on the alkaline diet were also reviewed and evaluated in light of the published medical literature. There may be some value in considering an alkaline diet in reducing morbidity and mortality from chronic diseases and further studies are warranted in this area of medicine.

1. Background

Life on earth depends on appropriate pH levels in and around living organisms and cells. Human life requires a tightly controlled pH level in the serum of about 7.4 (a slightly alkaline range of 7.35 to 7.45) to survive [1].

As a comparison, in the past 100 years with increasing industrialization, the pH of the ocean has dropped from 8.2 to 8.1 because of increasing CO2 deposition. This has a negative impact on life in the ocean [12] and may lead to the collapse of the coral reefs [3]. Even the pH of the soil in which plants are grown can have considerable influence on the mineral content of the food we eat (as minerals are used as buffers to maintain pH). The ideal pH of soil for the best overall availability of essential nutrients is between 6 and 7. Acidic soils below pH of 6 may have reduced calcium and magnesium, and soil above pH 7 may result in chemically unavailable iron, manganese, copper and zinc. Adding dolomite and manure are ways of raising pH in an acid soil environment when the pH is below 6 [4].

When it comes to the pH and net acid load in the human diet, there has been considerable change from the hunter gather civilization to the present [5]. With the agricultural revolution (last 10,000 years) and even more recently with industrialization (last 200 years), there has been an decrease in potassium (K) compared to sodium (Na) and an increase in chloride compared to bicarbonate found in the diet [6]. The ratio of potassium to sodium has reversed, K/Na previously was 10 to 1 whereas the modern diet has a ratio of 1 to 3 [7]. It is generally accepted that agricultural humans today have a diet poor in magnesium and potassium as well as fiber and rich in saturated fat, simple sugars, sodium, and chloride as compared to the preagricultural period [6]. This results in a diet that may induce metabolic acidosis which is mismatched to the genetically determined nutritional requirements [8]. With aging, there is a gradual loss of renal acid-base regulatory function and a resultant increase in diet-induced metabolic acidosis while on the modern diet [9]. A low-carbohydrate high-protein diet with its increased acid load results in very little change in blood chemistry, and pH, but results in many changes in urinary chemistry. Urinary magnesium levels, urinary citrate and pH are decreased, urinary calcium, undissociated uric acid, and phosphate are increased. All of these result in an increased risk for kidney stones [10].

Much has been written in the lay literature as well as many online sites expounding on the benefits of the alkaline diet. This paper is an attempt to balance the evidence that is found in the scientific literature.

2. The Role of pH in Various Cells, Organs, and Membranes

The pH in our body may vary considerably from one area to another with the highest acidity in the stomach (pH of 1.35 to 3.5) to aid in digestion and protect against opportunistic microbial organisms. But even in the stomach, the layer just outside the epithelium is quite basic to prevent mucosal injury. It has been suggested that decreased gastric lining secretion of bicarbonates and a decrease in the alkaline/acid secretion in duodenal ulcer patients may play a significant role in duodenal ulcers [11]. The skin is quite acidic (pH 4–6.5) to provide an acid mantle as a protective barrier to the environment against microbial overgrowth. There is a gradient from the outer horny layer (pH 4) to the basal layer (pH 6.9) [12]. This is also seen in the vagina where a pH of less than 4.7 protects against microbial overgrowth [13].

The urine may have a variable pH from acid to alkaline depending on the need for balancing the internal environment. Acid excretion in the urine can be estimated by a formula described by Remer (sulfate + chloride + 1.8x phosphate + organic acids) minus (sodium + potassium + 2x calcium + 2x magnesium) mEq [14]. Foods can be categorized by the potential renal acid loads (PRALs) see Table 2. Fruits, vegetables, fruit juices, potatoes, and alkali-rich and low phosphorus beverages (red and white wine, mineral soda waters) having a negative acid load. Whereas, grain products, meats, dairy products, fish, and alkali poor and low phosphorus beverages (e.g., pale beers, cocoa) have relatively high acid loads [15]. Measurement of pH of the urine (reviewed in a recent study with two morning specimens done over a five-year span) did not predict bone fractures or loss of bone mineral density [16]. However, this may not be reflective of being on an alkaline or acid diet throughout this time. For more details, see Table 1.

3. Chronic Acidosis and Bone Disease

Calcium in the form of phosphates and carbonates represents a large reservoir of base in our body. In response to an acid load such as the modern diet these salts are released into the systemic circulation to bring about pH homeostasis [7]. It has been estimated that the quantity of calcium lost in the urine with the modern diet over time could be as high as almost 480 gm over 20 years or almost half the skeletal mass of calcium [21]. However, urinary losses of calcium are not a direct measure of osteoporosis. There are many regulatory factors that may compensate for the urinary calcium loss. When the arterial pH is in the normal range, a mild reduction of plasma bicarbonate results in a negative calcium balance which could benefit from supplementing bicarbonate in the form of potassium bicarbonate [22]. It has been found that bicarbonate, which increases the alkali content of a diet, but not potassium may attenuate bone loss in healthy older adults [23]. The bone minerals that are wasted in the urine may not have complete compensation through intestinal absorption, which is thought to result in osteoporosis. However, adequate vitamin D with a 25(OH)D level of >80 nmol/L may allow for appropriate intestinal absorption of calcium and magnesium and phosphate when needed [24]. Sadly, most populations are generally deficient in vitamin D especially in northern climates [25]. In chronic renal failure, correction of metabolic acidosis with bicarbonate significantly improves parathyroid levels and levels of the active form of vitamin D 1,25(OH)2D3 [26]. Recently, a study has shown the importance of phosphate in Remer’s PRAL formula. According to the formula it would be expected that an increase in phosphate should result in an increase in urinary calcium loss and a negative calcium balance in bone [27]. It should be noted that supplementation with phosphate in patients with bed rest reduced urinary calcium excretion but did not prevent bone loss [28]. The most recent systematic review and meta-analysis has shown that calcium balance is maintained and improved with phosphate which is quite contrary to the acid-ash hypothesis [29]. As well a recent study looking at soda intake (which has a significant amount of phosphate) and osteoporosis in postmenopausal American first nations women did not find a correlation [30]. It is quite possible that the high acid content according to Remer’s classification needs to be looked at again in light of compensatory phosphate intake. There is online information promoting an alkaline diet for bone health as well as a number of books. However, a recent systematic review of the literature looking for evidence supporting the alkaline diet for bone health found no protective role of dietary acid load in osteoporosis [31].

Another element of the modern diet is the excess of sodium in the diet. There is evidence that in healthy humans the increased sodium in the diet can predict the degree of hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis when consuming a net acid producing diet [32]. As well, there is evidence that there are adverse effects of sodium chloride in the aging population. A high sodium diet will exacerbate disuse-induced bone and muscle loss during immobilization by increasing bone resorption and protein wasting [33]. Excess dietary sodium has been shown to result in hypertension and osteoporosis in women [3435]. As well, dietary potassium which is lacking in the modern diet would modulate pressor and hypercalciuric effects of excess of sodium chloride [36].

Excess dietary protein with high acid renal load may decrease bone density if not buffered by ingestion of supplements or foods that are alkali rich [37]. However, adequate protein is necessary for prevention of osteoporosis and sarcopenia; therefore, increasing the amount of fruit and vegetables may be necessary rather than reducing protein [38].

4. Alkaline Diets and Muscle

As we age, there is a loss of muscle mass, which may predispose to falls and fractures. A three-year study looking at a diet rich in potassium, such as fruits and vegetables, as well as a reduced acid load, resulted in preservation of muscle mass in older men and women [39]. Conditions such as chronic renal failure that result in chronic metabolic acidosis result in accelerated breakdown in skeletal muscle [40]. Correction of acidosis may preserve muscle mass in conditions where muscle wasting is common such as diabetic ketosis, trauma, sepsis, chronic obstructive lung disease, and renal failure [41]. In situations that result in acute acidosis, supplementing younger patients with sodium bicarbonate prior to exhaustive exercise resulted in significantly less acidosis in the blood than those that were not supplemented with sodium bicarbonate [42].

5. Alkaline Supplementation and Growth Hormone

It has long been known that severe forms of metabolic acidosis in children, such as renal tubular acidosis, are associated with low levels of growth hormone with resultant short stature. Correction of the acidosis with bicarbonate [7] or potassium citrate [43] increases growth hormone significantly and improved growth. The use of enough potassium bicarbonate in the diet to neutralize the daily net acid load in postmenopausal women resulted in a significant increase in growth hormone and resultant osteocalcin [44]. Improving growth hormone levels may improve quality of life, reduce cardiovascular risk factors, improve body composition, and even improve memory and cognition [45]. As well this results in a reduction of urinary calcium loss equivalent to 5% of bone calcium content over a period of 3 years [46].

6. Alkaline Diet and Back Pain

There is some evidence that chronic low back pain improves with the supplementation of alkaline minerals [47]. With supplementation there was a slight but significant increase in blood pH and intracellular magnesium. Ensuring that there is enough intracellular magnesium allows for the proper function of enzyme systems and also allows for activation of vitamin D [48]. This in turn has been shown to improve back pain [49].

7. Alkalinity and Chemotherapy

The effectiveness of chemotherapeutic agents is markedly influenced by pH. Numerous agents such as epirubicin and adriamycin require an alkaline media to be more effective. Others, such as cisplatin, mitomycin C, and thiotepa, are more cytotoxic in an acid media [50]. Cell death correlates with acidosis and intracellular pH shifts higher (more alkaline) after chemotherapy may reflect response to chemotherapy [51]. It has been suggested that inducing metabolic alkalosis may be useful in enhancing some treatment regimes by using sodium bicarbonate, carbicab, and furosemide [52]. Extracellular alkalinization by using bicarbonate may result in improvements in therapeutic effectiveness [53]. There is no scientific literature establishing the benefit of an alkaline diet for the prevention of cancer at this time.

8. Discussion

The human body has an amazing ability to maintain a steady pH in the blood with the main compensatory mechanisms being renal and respiratory. Many of the membranes in our body require an acid pH to protect us and to help us digest food. It has been suggested that an alkaline diet may prevent a number of diseases and result in significant health benefits. Looking at the above discussion on bone health alone, certain aspects have doubtful benefit. There does not seem to be enough evidence that milk or cheese may be as detrimental as Remer’s formula suggests since phosphate does benefit bone health and result in a positive calcium balance. However, another mechanism for the alkaline diet to benefit bone health may be the increase in growth hormone and resultant increase in osteocalcin. There is some evidence that the K/Na ratio does matter and that the significant amount of salt in our diet is detrimental. Even some governments are demanding that the food industry reduce the salt load in our diet. High-protein diets may also affect bone health but some protein is also needed for good bone health. Muscle wasting however seems to be reduced with an alkaline diet and back pain may benefit from this as well. An alkaline environment may improve the efficacy of some chemotherapy agents but not others.

9. Conclusion

Alkaline diets result in a more alkaline urine pH and may result in reduced calcium in the urine, however, as seen in some recent reports, this may not reflect total calcium balance because of other buffers such as phosphate. There is no substantial evidence that this improves bone health or protects from osteoporosis. However, alkaline diets may result in a number of health benefits as outlined below

  1. Increased fruits and vegetables in an alkaline diet would improve the K/Na ratio and may benefit bone health, reduce muscle wasting, as well as mitigate other chronic diseases such as hypertension and strokes.
  2. The resultant increase in growth hormone with an alkaline diet may improve many outcomes from cardiovascular health to memory and cognition.
  3. An increase in intracellular magnesium, which is required for the function of many enzyme systems, is another added benefit of the alkaline diet. Available magnesium, which is required to activate vitamin D, would result in numerous added benefits in the vitamin D apocrine/exocrine systems.
  4. Alkalinity may result in added benefit for some chemotherapeutic agents that require a higher pH.

From the evidence outlined above, it would be prudent to consider an alkaline diet to reduce morbidity and mortality of chronic disease that are plaguing our aging population. One of the first considerations in an alkaline diet, which includes more fruits and vegetables, is to know what type of soil they were grown in since this may significantly influence the mineral content. At this time, there are limited scientific studies in this area, and many more studies are indicated in regards to muscle effects, growth hormone, and interaction with vitamin D.

A Response to a Nasty Character Assassination of Dr. Robert O. Young

The following is a letter from Deborah Tumlinson who sent a response to an article written by Ian, an Aussie network marketer of water and nutritional products, who wrote a very hurtful, nasty, untrue, libel and character assassination of Dr. Robert O. Young and his thirty-plus years of successful and effective cancer, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, lupus, MS, CFS, Autism, HIV/AIDs, and heart disease research.

Dear Ian,

I want to express to you my thoughts and feelings on your article concerning Dr. Robert O. Young. (http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1078614).

As I am open to others expressing their opinions, you have the facts all wrong. First of all, I know first hand that his program works as I was his patient who had been diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer and now I am caner free.  I lost over 100 lbs and was self-healed of over 29 ailments including asthma, pre-diabetic (one point away from type 2), high cholesterol, fungal infections, menopausal symptoms, adult acne vulgaris, …etc.  The list goes on I could send them all to you if you need a specific list.   My point being that I was the world’s biggest skeptic when I met him. At first I did not like him because he told me something I did not want to hear.   He told me that I was responsible for all my health problems.   How dare he tell me (the truth) this, none of my many and numerous doctors did this for me. They just sent me for tests, diagnosed me with another ailment and prescribed good old drugs.  At the time I came to see Dr. Young which was three days before my surgery,  I was on 13 different medications for pain, sleeping, inhalers, remedies for aches and pains,  you name it I was taking it.
Dr. Young challenged me to do his program for ten days (that was June 11, 2012).   I delayed my surgery and went to the PH Miracle Ranch and started my ten-day detoxification process.  I was a big skeptic that it would work but I told Dr. Young I would follow his advice.  I secretly hoped it would work because I did not want to endure surgery and months of chemo and radiation.    I felt like I had been hit by a truck each day as I was detoxing, I smelled awful, I felt awful and I looked awful but after 9 days of headaches, bad breath, body odors (worst smells ever), my sinuses and chronic post nasal drip disappeared.   My daily migraines and sinus headaches disappeared.   I started hearing, seeing and smelling better.   I could actually smell things with a heightened sense of smell.  It was a brand new world that I had been exposed to in those 9 days.  Dr. Young told me that on the tenth day I would be doing plank on the floor for two minutes.   I thought he was doing drugs.  You see I had shoulder surgery in March 2012 and I had been through 4 months of physical therapy but I only had 10% mobility with my right shoulder.   Each day I had movement range but I did not want to let Dr. Young know because he would be right and I would be wrong.  I would wake up each day feeling better and better after days of agony.    He was right because on the tenth day, he had me get on the floor and with my bad shoulder and all I did a plank for 2 minutes and 17 seconds.   Ian, from that point forward I have never looked back.

I adore Dr. Young and his work and I have personally witnessed miracle after miracle.  I saw people who were dying and wheelchair bound,  get up and be healed.  I saw people given no hope leave here and be self-healed.  I witnessed a woman from Australia who had been given less than two weeks to live,  she arrived here in November and wanted to make it to Christmas.  She lived for another 11 weeks.   It was miraculous to see her family and her change their entire lives to help her heal.   She was an Aussie that traveled here to have a fighting chance.  She wanted time that others told her she did not have.  She came here and lived.  This woman made us all feel wonderful.  She realized that she was going to die but she wanted time.   Dr. Young never guaranteed her anything just educated her on how she could extend her life by eating, drinking and relaxing.  This woman family rallied around her and they changed their lives to accommodate her.  Her children left here happy and healthy.

They had Christmas and New Years together and four weeks later she stopped all treatments and said she was ready to go.  She was happy but she was tired.   She died peacefully here at the ranch.     Her death all though deemed natural started this entire witch hunt of Dr. Young.   He allowed her to die peacefully surrounded by her husband and family. He gave her dignity and she died with a smile on her face.   The DA’s office used this as an excuse to confiscate her body from the funeral home,  chopped her up only to conclude that she died of natural causes.  Her family was mortified and distressed by the series of events.  They kept this women’s body for three weeks after her family had returned to Australia.

To this day, her family defends Dr. Young and now they all swear by the alkalarian lifestyle.

They have been his biggest supporters and have told the DA to piss off.   They could never repay him for the 9 extra weeks that they had with their precious wife, mother and sister.

I just want you to know that Dr. Young never purports to be a medical doctor, never promises anyone anything and has never treated a patient.  He has a full medical staff of doctors, nurses and nurses assistants.   NO medical care was administered to any patient.   His course of treatment is ten things,  kinda like a telephone number.

1)  Water (Alkaline) about 6-7 liters daily to rehydrate the body
2)  Dry Brushing daily to remove the toxins away from the heart and lymphatic system
3)  Colonics with implantation    Infusing chlorophyll, sodium bicarbonate and magnesium chloride that is infused in the colonic bags to enter the blood stream through the colon and intestinal tract
4)  Exercise   Low impact but intense enough to have you sweat out the toxins.  He prefers yoga, low impact aerobics, rebounding, treadmills, whole body vibrations.   These open up the lymphatic systems and release the toxins.  Must do one hour to be effective.   At the ranch we do 2 3 hours by choice.
5)  Saunas.   Infrared saunas to help you sweat and detox through the pores.  The skin is the biggest organ and easiest way to get toxins out of the organs.
6)  Massages,  Lymphatic massage therapy which allows you to relax while your muscles, and organs are massage and concentration on the lymphatic system.
7)  Meditation,  It is important that you master the art of meditation.  Freeing your mind of acidic thoughts (Stress, Anxiety and Depression) are all stress points that have severe physical and psychological effects on the body.  Acid causes you to have stomach issues.   Which creates excess acid.
8)  Urine Testing   Making sure that your urine is above 8.0 pH daily in your first urine of the day.  You have to get your body to the point where when you are the most acidic you are registering at least 8.0.  This is the point where no disease, no inflammation, no illness can survive in alkaline environment.
9)  Supplementation. It is imperative whether you use Dr. Young’s products or others that you get the required nutrients needed to help regenerate your body into healing and preventing further health challenges.
10) Finally and most important is Diet.   Unfortunately this seems to be the hardest for most people but the key to self-healing.   Removing all acidic elements of normal standard diet.  Removing Sugars (Both processed and natural), no dairy, no grains, no vinegar, no corn, no mushrooms, no meats, no fish or poultry.  No GMO vegetables.  Mostly a  rich green organic diet that in the beginning is mostly liquid (juices, shakes and raw green soups)   I currently eat 6-8 avocado a day.  I call it God’s Butter.

These ten steps healed me and helped me to battle the most dangerous cancer that takes so many women’s lives.   I owe him my life and my existence

I would rather go see a doctor who has been arrested three times for his passion, his drive and his beliefs, who helps you recognize the cause of all illnesses, diseases and health issues is over acidification of the blood.   There is not a disease or health issue that cannot be healed by these steps.   I have seen people with diseases that were told were incurable post pictures of their recovery.   Take for instance Ida Kolander, who was convinced she was dying and there was no cure.  See her you tube films   Flare (her documentary film before PH Miracle) and Overcome her documentary after she learned how to heal herself with Dr. Young’s self –care protocol. She lived at the PH Miracle Ranch for four months.   We have sent her story to LUPUS foundation and it has been banned.  It is Lupus Awareness Month and we cannot get anyone to see her before and after results.

I went to work for Dr. Young not to make money because believe me, I have endured losses you cannot even imagine since I started working for him.   I do not care any more about money.  I care about telling the world what the alkaline lifestyle can do for you.
I have two books coming out one is called “Cancer Healed Me” my journey to self-healing spiritually, emotionally and physically.      It will be released on June 11, 2014.  The second one is Mormon Yes Molly No a converts guide to self acceptance.  This books details my journey from a city girl from New York/New Jersey to Laid back carefree cancer-free Mormon woman who journey is quite different from most.  I speak about how Cancer healed me in a way I could never fully explain.

I wanted you to know Ian that Dr. Young is a remarkable man who only cares about helping others, taking care of his family, his friends and that the charges against him are false.   I know he will prevail.   His daily mantra is “This too shall pass”   He still is at his ranch every day exercising, drinking his shakes, juices and his alkaline food.  He talks to hundreds of supporters daily.

I implore you to remove your negative article and interview him and write a true to life expose that truly talks about the truth.   This man deserves at least an opportunity to discount your science.  Which by the way he says is bogus.   It is only half the truth.
If you would like to know more than email me at my personal email adecoratingmom@gmail.com and I will respond.

I am truly grateful for the truth, The PH Miracle for Weight Loss by Dr . Robert O Young has changed my life in ways that I never expected. This powerful information will transform your life, spiritually, emotionally, physically and quite possibly will be the the best decision you will ever make for yourself. Obviously the picture on the left tells a painful story and when I look at it even now it shocks me.  But I am more focused on the picture on the right that is me now.
