Alkaline Foods And Alkalinity Diet Tips From A Pro
8.21.12

We’ve asked the team from pH Miracle to keep talking to us about the powerful effect internal pH can have on our overall health. Doctor Robert Young and his wife Shelley are the scientific masterminds behind pH Miracle’s effective programs and protocols that have helped so many recover from disease and reclaim vital health. The Youngs were even instrumental in helping our June Guest Editor Kris Carr find her path to wholeness and healing. Get ready for a little chemistry lesson as Shelley helps us unpack the basics of body alkalinity and guides us through the importance of drinking alkaline water!

These days, we’ve got so much more medicine, but so much less health. More children are suffering from needless obesity and the three top killers, heart disease, cancer and diabetes, are on the rise! Something’s got to change!

Before things can change with the state of human health on this planet, we all have to realize that just as the earth has an external environment that has to be kept clean and clear for fresh air and pure water, each of us has an internal environment that must also be kept clean and clear. We have internal rivers and streams, veins, arteries and lymphatic vessels running through our bodies that must also be kept running pure, the state of which are vital to optimum health and strength.

The blood, tissues and organs of our bodies are kept in a delicate state of pH balance which is set as alkaline at 7.365. Many of you already know that a fish aquarium must be kept at a proper pH or the fish will die. Think of all of the cells in your body as being suspended in your own body “ocean”. The health of your cells will be determined by the environment they swim in. Those of you who enjoy your own swimming pools and hot tubs must also check the pH of the water to maintain its clean quality where bacteria cannot grow.  Just as your internal body temperature is held at 98.6, you are engineered to be alkaline by design at 7.365 and acidic by function.

(Quick review for those of you who haven’t taken chemistry in decades: the pH Scale goes from 1 to 14 – 7 being neutral. Anything below 7 is acid, and anything above 7 is base or alkaline.)

All body functions – respiration, perspiration, urination and defecation – create acids that must be handled and discarded by the body. If the acids are not discarded, toxicity (acidity) will build up in the internal environment. When your body temperature changes (rises above or falls below 98.6), it is actually a sign that something is wrong. If your body pH changes, symptoms can occur.

The blood is strictly held at its alkaline pH by keeping mineral salts balanced in the blood. Acids that build up can be held in the connective tissues and other body tissues such as the skin, muscles and organs. These acids can result in degeneration and dis-ease. What we eat and drink contributes to the system which keeps the body in a state of pH balance. Once you learn more about your body chemistry, you can make the adjustments toward optimum health and vitality.

The water you drink plays a crucial role in maintaining the body’s internal pH balance. You may have noticed water bottles with their pH listed right on the bottle. This is because pH MATTERS!

There is acidic water and alkaline water. The important thing is to drink water that is close to your own blood pH or even higher. Most water has a pH of around 9. It takes 20 parts alkalinity (sodium bicarbonate) to neutralize 1 part acidity (carbonic acid) in the body. You can’t over alkalize, but you can become overly acidic quite easily. Most people who eat the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) with its acidic foods and drinks become sick and tired. Signs that one is over-acidic include:

  • pain and inflammation
  • retention of water
  • skin rashes and eruptions
  • fatigue and allergies
  • More serious diagnoses could include cancer, diabetes, lupus, and heart disease, just to name a few

Hydration is the single most important thing you can do to start your alkalizing regime. A good rule is to drink one liter of pH water for every 30lbs of body weight.

Water ionizers can be connected to your kitchen sink to make all your drinking water alkaline. They also make acid water which can be used for external cleaning purposes (floors and counters). There are also drops made by health companies which use mineral salts such as Sodium Chlorite that can be added to any drinking water to push the pH up over a 9 while adding nacient oxygen to the water, too. Bacteria can’t live in an oxygen-rich environment. Dr. Robert O. Young, my husband and co-author of The pH Miracle, has developed these type of drops that are convenient for travel called Purify Drops.

When you are properly hydrated with pH structured water, all body systems usually improve in function – even the blood cells appear more plump and healthy! Circulation can improve! Once you start drinking water that is closer to the pH of your own blood and tissues, pain may diminish, rashes can clear up, unwanted pounds often drop off.

It only makes sense that keeping the pH balance in the body’s internal rivers and streams would improve the chances for good health, just as fish who swim in the proper pH fishbowl can survive and thrive. Think about it. If your pet fish was sick, would you treat the fish, or change it’s water?

Start alkalizing by just changing your water and see how you feel!

To your health,
Shelley Young

  3. I have been hearing more and more about this lately. I have polycystic kidney disease and I think that paying attention to pH might reduce or make some of the symptoms I have more tolerable! I wish I would have known about this a few years ago!

  5. I’ve been reading about this a lot lately… have started drinking tons of water with fresh lemon juice every morning and it’s made a big difference on how I feel throughout the day. I’d love to try the drops. P.S. I made the Youngs’ “green milk” this morning and it was delicious!

  12. Seems like every where I turn lately I’m being led to this information! I think this means my path is being shown to me. Did I mention that I’m also craving alkaline foods? This is my next step, I mean literally my next glass of water and my next meal. Thank you Chalkboard, the Youngs, Kris Carr, friends and Facebook.

    • If you ever get a chance to read a book about Edgar Cayce, you will realize that he was a fascinating man, with a mission to tell people about health, and PH. Howard Hughes once said ” I would give all my wealth for perfect health”. Around 1902 most people in the United States would check their PH every morning, and adjust their intake of food to improve their PH, the CDC, and the Surgeon General won’t tell you that. Eat less meat, and eat more fruits, and vegetables to raise your PH, and drink clean water. PROST

  13. I am so glad that this article was posted. I have been concerned about the quality of the water I have been drinking for a while now. It can be so confusing and overwhelming with all the filters out there and different things you read. The drops sound so simple, I would love the chance to try them out!

  16. I was wondering, would adding lemon juice to your water help make it more alkaline? I know this sounds counter intuitive, but I thought I’d read that lemon is actually alkaline to your body.

  21. If pH drops are out of someone’s budget, is there another “poor man’s” way of increasing the alkalinity of water? I hate to think that alkalizing water is only available to those with bigger wallets but maybe that’s the case. Would love to get your input on this. Thanks! :)

  22. Great article with many helpful lifestyle changes that are easy to make.

Thank you for helping me where traditional medicine could not.

  29. I recently discovered the PH Miracle as a result of a friend’s post on Facebook. As I researched the site and articles, I was very intrigued by the importance of alkalinity. Two subjects areas caught my attention, references to Crohns Disease and an imbalance of fluids in the body, as I struggle with both. I was encouraged as I read the seeming answers to questions I have had for a very long time. My Crohns is in remission, yet I still struggle with several factors stemming from the condition. My youngest son, age 22, was diagnosed with Crohns almost two years and is just beginning to come out of the stage of active disease. We have decided that we will approach this journey of achieving healthy alkalinity together, and have already begun to make needed dietary changes. Thank you for the informative articles you have provided. We would appreciate a chance to try the drops.

  39. How can we eat fresh organic veggies without paying through then nose? Sprouting! Yes, it’s easy, cheap, organic and as fresh as it canbe, some sprouts have up to 1000% the ammount of nutrients of regular veggies and can be ready to eat in as little as 2 days!!!

  60. My wife is a whole new person when she is eating alkaline for a couple days. She is usually really tired and doesn’t feel like doing anything but when she is drinking her 4 liters of green drink a day with the pH drops, she is bouncing around the house and plays with the kids more. I don’t care if it’s all in her head, she can keep buying all the pH miracles products she wants because she is happier when she eats better and takes supplements and drinks alkaline water.

I really try to stay healthy (am going to be 74) because with the state of our healthcare you better stay heathy. I just like to feel good. There is nothing like feeling tired and bad all the time.

  85. I read their book about 2 years ago and just by adding more water in my everyday life with lemon juce and some green powder ( not from them though but similar ) and making more adjustments to my already ” healthy” food I lost lots of pounds not even making it as a goal ( goal was to improve some conditions I have for long time) . Now I defenetly can testify to those who can say it’s a bogus or another marketing ” miracle food” that it’s realy true and work . Also I would like to add some of my thoughts about alternative to “normal ” medicine cancer therapies . There are many different protocols exist and all of them works wonderful and sometimes people confuse wich one to choose and why they work. If you look at all of them in basic you will see that all of them do the change in pH by eleminating acid food and raising greatly alkaline food . That’s it! So , ladies and gentlemen, go for it without any doubts of having no results. If you do it consistantly , it will work. Good luck!

  86. I’m just starting to really educate myself on alkalinity thanks to Kris Carr’s books where she talks about it. I’ve been eating vegetarian for the past year (I prefer to eat mostly vegan but I’m not totally there yet) & I feel so much better eating this way. Thank you for a great article that explains the importance of an alkaline diet in a way that’s easy to understand. I can’t wait to read more about your work and your husband’s work.

  87. Loved the article. I started the PH Miracle diet about 3 weeks ago. I love the great state of well-being that I feel everyday. ” A natural high”, so to speak. I have lost 10 lbs and no longer suffer from hypoglycemia. Totally love this way of life.

  88. Great article. I love to read anything that will encourage me to follow this alkaline diet. The pH Miracle has changed my life and my outlook on what I put into my body. It’s still new, and sometimes tough, but IT’S WORTH IT. I could never go back to the old way of eating. To anyone who is thinking about making a change: DO IT. Your body will thank you. Whether you are seriously sick, or just tired and not feeling well, you will see a change in your health. YOU CAN DO IT. One step at a time, and it will become a way of life.

  89. Shelley is a pro. 18 months ago my wife and I both changed our lives to include an alkaline diet. I have never felt any better, have limitless energy and shed 45 lbs in 60 days. The first step for us was hydrating ourselves with alkaline water… it is a great first step to lead you on the path of full alkaline diet. Thank you for the article.

  90. Great article indeed! I have been using Doc Broc greens daily and have used the PH drops as well for at least 10 years, I have lost over 15 lbs and am keeping it off, I feel better and have more energy and have lowered my blood pressure meds from 20 mg/daily to 10 mg/daily – I know it is all because I have changed my highly acidic environment to a more alkaline one. I wish I had learned about this much sooner, I would have saved myself much suffering from being overly acidic for so many years.

  91. Shelley, why do you say the drops are sodium chlorite when the bottle says potassium hydroxide?

    I have been on the pH Miracle Lifestyle for 8 years and continue to see improvements in my health and overall well-being. My body craves green foods now – I make raw green bread to eat with green juice, kale chips, and green smoothies. YUM!

  92. last yr i started suffering from severe guttate psoriasis. I went to several dermatologists all who wanted to inject and pump me up with lots of prescription drugs that had serious side effects. I continued to research holistic and healthy ways to treat it and met a wonderful doctor who put me on a very strict alkaline based diet, in addition my ayurvedic healer had suggested similar restrictions, including no nightshade vegetables– that are very high in acids. within a few weeks my skin started to calm down and 6 months later i am completely clear of any spots! i am very big supporter and living proof that an alkaline based diet is the key to healthy living.

  93. I’ve been looking at a lot of alternative resources for better health. Although many of them offer suggestions that seem logical and helpful, alkalinity makes the most sense from a physiological standpoint. I know the body has a delicate balance that requires exactness and care. I haven’t tried the purify drops, but I’d like to along with a carefully planned alkaline diet.

We are looking for a better way of living and eating, the alkaline water that I have been drinking has cleared up a lot of health problems and organs flushed. I would not live without drinking it all day and feel great, so with the alkaline diet should make this body of my in great health. So bring it on flushing out the toxins with the water and eating the foods with the ph alkaline will works wonders. Thanks for all the infor your sharing too all of us.God Bless !!

  102. I hink its great. The article that is. My question to you is how can you over acidic yourself by drinking water ? I am taking up Massage Therapy in school but when they say ” Drink a lot of water ” especially after you get a Massage can help release toxins, is that what they are talking about Alkalinity as a poison in your body ?

  106. Dr. Young was introduced to myself through a friend. Crippled by multiple accidents my hopes were completely diminished until my friend introduced me to PH living and Dr. and Shelley Young. I am now completely recovered from all of my injuries. This program not only reverses disease it reverses injuries that could have otherwise been lifelong limitations. Thank you for your love and commitment to truth and health.

  107. I have had many health problems for the last three years. I have been researching the benefits and necessity of alkaline water, and this blog post is the icing on the cake for me! I have been dealing with allergies, a hiatal hernia (extreme acid reflux), and scoliosis. I actually recently went vegan for some of this, too. I am feeling amazing since going vegan, and have actually lost twenty pounds I gained from a Kenelog Steroid shot from my doctor four years ago (Due to mono). I’m only 19, and this battle has not been easy! I know now that my last adjustment is going to be my water, (and a Pressed Juicery Detox soon ;)).

  108. You need to speak to Jeri Reid (jeri@jerireid.com: 860-463-5109). She is amazing you must feature her, literally transformed lives for people that were diagnosed with serious illnesses based on studying your blood and looking at your PH and diet.

  111. I am a pancreatic cancer survivor. The importance of an alkaline diet is very key to staying healthy. I drink 9.5 alkaline water everyday. I would be interested to try your drops. Take care and God bless.

  112. I am a nearly-60 year old married woman living in a suburb of Toronto, Canada. In March 2008, when I was 55 years old, I was diagnosed with some heart trouble, & very high blood pressure, as I approached menopause. I had also gained weight gradually with my change in hormones, & nothing I did to try to lose the excess weight seemed to help. Then, in May of 2008, I discovered Dr. Young’s pH Miracle book, & started to ALKALIZE my body, & I LOST 37 lbs. in just 3 WEEKS WITHOUT DOING ANY EXERCISE! The weight just melted off me! And I felt like I was 17 again. I had been slim all my life, but the approaching menopause caused a weight gain that just wouldn’t respond to traditional diets. I had always managed to remain slim on a high protein diet, most of my adult life. But as I got older, the high protein was producing a lot of ACID in my body which caused the weight gain, that I never knew about, until I read Dr. Young’s book. After alkalizing my body by drinking pH boosted water, & LOTS of greens, etc., I got my youth back. Actually, I became slightly UNDERWEIGHT after losing the 37 lbs. in just 3 weeks … it just went SO FAST! So, I had to eat some of the weight back because I felt “too light” & I couldn’t afford to buy too many new clothes to fit the underweight size. I did have clothes that fit me at the point where I had lost only 30 lbs. because I had been that size for most of my adult life. I LOVE TO WALK, & as soon as I stabilized my weight by stopping the fast weight loss, I began to walk for miles and miles, like I used to when I was a teenager. THANK YOU DR. YOUNG for giving me the secret to renewed health & a trim, youthful figure.

  113. I don’t even know where to start. PH living has now transformed my life, this research has caught my attention in such a large way. My little sister is suffering from severe chronic eczema and asthma. After drs pretty much telling my mom only research medicine is left to help her due to her severity I decided there has to be a way to fix us from the inside out naturally. I then stumbled upon dr young through Facebook. I have since connected my mom with their group and she is trying her very best to get my sister “balanced” from the inside out. So far nothing but positives coming from her about my sister. Things are starting to happen that never did before. What’s funny is its all simple science … Or really chemistry. I am spreading the word to everyone I know.
    Now for my self I am trying to make alkalizer water with lemon and backing powder and jucing lots of greens. It’s my goal to master this ph thing and then encourage my stubborn family to follow.

    Those drops would be so greatly appreciated, I could sneak alkalizer water into my family members!

  115. I’m so excited to learn more about the precious “state of the state” so to speak. Having lost my mother to cancer as a young high school girl i began researching the geneology of disease in my heritage. It was depressing to see what seemed to be the obvious path i would have to take. I decided to start researching how nutrition is realated to disease; it was confounding the plethera of information on this topic! However, through that process i developed a philosophy that I kept in the forefront as i became a mother and am now transitioining into my 50′s. What i learned early on was that although i can’t change what’s been passed down through genetics, I definitely have control how I “nurture” my “nature” … that’s simply it. Nuture Your Nature! And now as the studies about alkalinity have been pouring in i am a sponge… i want to learn as much as i can! I’m seeing some changes in my body and feeling things that i’m concerned about and i beleive they may be related to the delicate PH of my body (and hormone changes!) If you have any input or advice about this stage in a woman’s life in relation to Ph, i would greatly appreciate it! thank you for your contribution :)

I moved to Morocco and tap water here is really horrible so I always drink bottle water. I just feel so guilty about it all the time because of the environment but also because of the BPA issue. Does anyone know what I should do about BPA or any other alternatives?

So far she shows no signs of cancer coming back, but we know that nutrition and what you put in/on your body are all VERY important. I did not realize that drinking alkalized water would have such an amazing effect too. I’m definitly going to purchase the book for her and the drops if I am not chosen as the lucky winner.

  134. One of tthe most important means to be equipped with the skills
    and knowledge about proper patient care is by attending pediatric
    advanced life support or PALS classes to be able to further improve one’s life-saving skills.

    This kind of certification is beneficial for nurses and doctors working
    in pediatrics annd paramedics health care sectors.
