Over Acidity is a Dangerous Consequence of Choice
Over acidity, which can become a dangerous condition that weakens all body systems is very common today. It gives rise to an internal environment conducive to disease, as opposed to a pH-balanced environment which allows normal body function necessary for the body to resist disease. A healthy body maintains adequate alkaline reserves to meet emergency demands. When excess acids must be neutralized, our alkaline reserves are depleted leaving the body in a weakened condition.
The concept of acid alkaline imbalance as the cause of disease is not new. In 1933 a New York doctor named William Howard Hay published a ground-breaking book, A New Health Era in which he maintains that all disease is caused by autotoxication (or “self-poisoning”) due to acid accumulation in the body:
“Now we depart from health in just the proportion to which we have allowed our alkalies to be dissipated by introduction of acid-forming food in too great amount… It may seem strange to say that all disease is the same thing, no matter what its myriad modes of expression, but it is verily so.” William Howard Hay, M.D.
More recently, in his remarkable book Alkalize or Die, Dr. Theodore A. Baroody says essentially the same thing:
“The countless names of illnesses do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause…too much tissue acid waste in the body.” Theodore A. Baroody, N.D., D.C., Ph.D.
pH (potential of hydrogen) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14–the lower the pH the more acidic the solution, the higher the pH the more alkaline (or base) the solution. When a solution is neither acid nor alkaline it has a pH of 7 which is neutral.
Water is the most abundant compound in the human body, comprising 70% of the body. The body continually strives to balance pH. When this balance is compromised many problems can occur. It is important to understand that we are also talking about the stomach pH which should have a pH of 7.2 or above.
Your body is able to assimilate minerals and nutrients properly only when its pH is in alkaline balance. It is therefore possible for you to be taking healthy nutrients and yet be unable to absorb or use them. If you are not getting the results you expected from your nutritional or herbal program, look for an acid alkaline imbalance.
What Causes Me to be Acidic?
The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the typical American diet, which is far too high in acid-producing animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline-producing foods like fresh vegetables. Additionally, we eat acid-producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid-producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks. We use too many drugs, which are acid-forming; and we use artificial chemical sweeteners which are extremely acid-forming. One of the best things we can do to correct an overly-acidic body is to clean up the diet and lifestyle.
Most people who suffer from unbalanced pH are acidic. This condition forces the body to borrow minerals–including calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium–from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralize) the acid and safely remove it from the body. Because of this strain, the body can suffer severe and prolonged damage due to high acidity–a condition that may go undetected for years.
Mild acidosis can cause such problems as:
* Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and the reduction of oxygen.
* Weight gain, obesity and diabetes.
* Bladder and kidney conditions, including kidney stones.
* Immune deficiency.
* Acceleration of free radical damage, possibly contributing to cancerous transformations.
* Premature aging.
* Osteoporosis; weak, brittle bones, hip fractures and bone spurs.
* Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup.
* Low energy and chronic fatigue.
A recent seven-year study conducted at the University of California, San Francisco, on 9,000 women showed that those who have chronic acidosis are at greater risk for bone loss than those who have normal pH levels. The scientists who carried out this experiment believe that many of the hip fractures prevalent among middle-aged women are connected to high acidity caused by a diet rich in animal foods and low in vegetables. This is because the body borrows calcium from the bones in order to balance pH. — American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Update on SuperGreens formula and when it might be available again.
For those interested in Dr Young’s original formula SuperGreens (formerly distributed by InnerLight Inc. – now out of business), here is an update.
Dr Young’s intent was to bring the SuperGreens formula back in 1Q 2016, BUT, practically, it just won’t be possible anytime soon.
If you need more information than this, feel free to contact me.
The good thing is that we have Dr Young’s other green drink powder formula’s pH Miracle Greens & Doc Broc’s Power Plants which are high quality green drink powders (as well as the rest of his product line).
If things change I’ll let everyone know. Please feel free to call me if you have questions at 1-954-459-1134
“The key to good digestion is not how we combine foods but how we choose foods to eat which are most like us: high water (70% or greater), naturally occurring oils (20 to 30%), low protein (5 to 7 percent), and even lower sugar (0.5% to 3%). Understanding that our bodies are a gelatinous (between a liquid and solid) material in an ocean of water, we do not have to worry ourselves with food combining ideologies or charts when we are eating high water / low sugar content foods!”

30 Day Cleanse
Well, what started off as a 14 day cleanse has now been turned into a 30 day cleanse. Why? Dr Young was in Ft Lauderdale and I went to meet with him on November 7th. It was great to see Dr Young face to face (think it’s been like 8-9 years) BUT I walked out of the meeting with some health areas I need to focus on. I had couple of minor tests done that showed some areas in my body under stress. Oh, well…need to double up my efforts.
I started the cleanse on Friday, October 30th and will go thru Sunday, November 29th, 2015. If you want to read up about what I’m doing check out my blog at:
– I like to make up my own nut mix. I will go to Whole Foods (or some other Health Food store that sells nuts) and get some Macadamia nuts, Pecans, Brazil nuts, Walnuts, Pine Nuts & Almonds. I mix these all up for a great holiday nut mix.
– Sprouted Tortilla Chips are made from whole tortillas. Cut up one package of Alvarado Street brand tortillas into pie-shaped pieces. Place on two lightly-oiled baking sheets and toast at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. They can be dipped in salsa, hummus, or almond butter for a snack.
Fat is an Acid Problem!
Perhaps one of Dr. Young’s most well known discoveries is his theory of the cause of overweight. He has shown that fat is actually an over-acidification problem. What does that mean? The body creates fat cells to carry acids away from your vital organs, so these acids literally don’t choke your organs to death. Fat is saving your life! Fat is actually a response from the body to an alarming over-acidic condition.
Q: If you don’t mind me asking, what do you eat for breakfast?
A: Usually I don’t consume ANY solid foods until about 12pm (lunchtime). I basically just drink the greens super-hydrating all morning. If I do eat something for breakfast, I have NO trouble eating a salad, an avocado, snacking on a bell pepper or almonds. I’ve even been known to eat a veggie wrap. The Zippy Breakfast is good also => Avocado, Tomato, Basmati rice with lemon.
What happens when you go without sugar for 10 days?
No one wants to hear more bad news about sugar, especially just a few days after Halloween. As a dad of three little girls, though, I found a recent study about sugar somewhat encouraging.
By cutting back sugar for your kids, you can see dramatic improvements in just 10 days. That is pretty remarkable, if you think about it.
We typically think diets take months, or even longer, to make a positive dent. For 43 children, however, Dr. Robert Lustig and his team at University of California, San Francisco, decreased triglyceride levels by 33 points on average. The LDL — bad — cholesterol dropped 5 points, as did diastolic blood pressure, the lower number…..
Jogging is so yesteryear. Walking, aka ‘steps’, is the technology-calibrated exercise du jour
A new study shows that we can live longer simply by increasing the number of steps we take each day. The study of 3,000 Australians over 15 years showed that a sedentary person who increased their steps from 1,000 to 10,000 steps a day, seven days a week, reduced their mortality risk by 46%.
This is just the latest in a series of studies which show how incredibly powerful the impact of walking is on the human body – against the backdrop of a world-wide craze for pedometers and upping your “steps”.
Here our panel explains what motivates them to put on their trainers each day…..
Study links soda, sweetened beverages to heart failure
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Nov. 3 (UPI) — The latest in a long line of studies showing the potential for sweetened beverages such as soda to have a significantly poor effect on health suggests daily consumption of soft drinks increases the risk of developing heart failure.
A large study of Swedish men found drinking two or more sweetened beverages per day increases the risk for heart failure, a chronic condition characterized by the heart’s inability to properly pump blood.
Although researchers said the study likely can be applied to men in the United States as well, more research would need to be done on the American population because of differences in culture and diet……
Nearly 60 percent of Americans — the highest ever — are taking prescription drugs
Nearly 3 in 5 American adults take a prescription drug, up markedly since 2000 because of much higher use of almost every type of medication, including antidepressants and treatments for high cholesterol and diabetes.
In a study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers found that the prevalence of prescription drug use among people 20 and older had risen to 59 percent in 2012 from 51 percent just a dozen years earlier. During the same period, the percentage of people taking five or more prescription drugs nearly doubled, to 15 percent from 8 percent.
One likely factor driving the increased use: obesity…….
Arm mole count ‘predicts skin cancer risk’
Having more than 11 moles on one arm indicates a higher-than-average risk of skin cancer or melanoma, research suggests.
Counting moles on the right arm was found to be a good indicator of total moles on the body. More than 100 indicates five times the normal risk.
The study, published in the British Journal of Dermatology, used data from 3,000 twins in the UK.
GPs could use the findings to identify those most at risk, it said.
Melanoma is a type of skin cancer affecting more than 13,000 people in the UK each year.
It develops from abnormal moles, so the risk of being diagnosed with a melanoma is linked to the number of moles a patient has……
Healthy loaf with 30 ingredients and truth about what’s in your food
Revealed: What REALLY goes into your favorite foods – the astonishing breakdown of everything from Chicken McNuggets to the ‘healthy’ loaf with THIRTY ingredients
If you don’t want to know exactly what goes into your food, look away now.
A new book has broken down the ingredients of 25 foods and laid them out next to each other in series of striking pictures.
Photographer Dwight Eschliman and food writer Steve Ettlinger deconstructed foods like Twinkies, wholemeal bread and ketchup to show what they are really made up of.
Others they have broken down include Dr Pepper, Campbell’s chicken soup, Naked Green Machine smoothie and PowerBar energy bars.
In each case small piles of each ingredient are laid next to each other in rows and photographed from above – and the results can be quite surprising…..
Diverticulitis on the rise in U.S. since 2000
Diverticulitis, a disabling colon problem that can cause pain, obstruction and fever, became more common in the U.S. from the late 1990’s to the mid-2000’s, a new study suggests.
The findings are from one Minnesota county, but other research indicates that hospitalizations for diverticulitis also increased in the U.S. generally during this period.
The overall incidence of diverticulitis, with or without hospitalization, increased by 50 percent since 2000, and more so in younger people, said lead author Dr. Adil E. Bharucha of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
So-called diverticula, which are small pouches along the large intestine, become more common with age. The presence of these pouches is called diverticulosis. If the pouches become inflamed or infected, the condition is called diverticulitis….
Kids’ TV Ads for Fast Food Work Just as They’re Supposed To
Toy giveaways in fast food ads grab children’s attention, study finds
Seemingly confirming the familiar warnings of pediatricians and other researchers, a new study in the Journal of Pediatrics finds that fast food commercials featuring toy giveaways led children to ask their parents to take them to the restaurants. And the more the children saw the fast-food commercials, the more frequently they ate fast food.
The study, performed by researchers from Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine, focused on the advertising of Burger King and McDonald’s, the two major fast-food brands on ad-supported children’s networks, such as Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network….
Spooked by sugar, Americans search for healthier Halloween treats
The so-called war on sugar has a new battleground: Halloween.
Some Americans are so spooked about the harmful effects of sugar they are finding healthier ways to indulge during the holiday, without disappointing children by handing out apples.
Sugary chocolates still dominate Halloween candy handed out and provide an annual sales treat for companies like Hershey Co, privately held Mars and Nestle SA.
Processed meats do cause cancer – WHO
Processed meats – such as bacon, sausages and ham – do cause cancer, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Its report said 50g of processed meat a day – less than two slices of bacon – increased the chance of developing colorectal cancer by 18%.
Meanwhile, it said red meats were “probably carcinogenic” but there was limited evidence.
The WHO did stress that meat also had health benefits.
Cancer Research UK said this was a reason to cut down rather than give up red and processed meats.
And added that an occasional bacon sandwich would do little harm.
pH Miracle Store Update
– I’m finalizing some changes on my site and I’m just about done. There’s going to be two more categories on my site
I’ll have an explanation for each on that specific page. I think this will help people when deciding what supplements they need to buy.
This is an orderly universe; nothing happens by accident. The images which you plant in your marvelous mind instantly sets up an attractive force which governs your results in life…. It’s up to you to get into harmony with what you want out of life rather than what you don’t want.
