Expert Advice with pH Miracle: Alkalizing with Green Juice

Last month, I shared all about the importance of drinking alkaline water. Alkaline water hydrates every cell in our bodies and keeps our internal arteries and tissues running clean, clear and in vibrant health. Water is just one part of maintaining a delicate pH balance of 7.365 in our blood and tissues. I encourage you to go back and read all about the simple and powerful effect that drinking alkaline water can have on your health!

Did you know that the following beverages have a pH lower than 7 and are acidifying to the body?

  • coffee
  • sugary soda pop
  • diet soft drinks
  • alcohol
  • dairy-filled shakes and malts
  • even fruit juice

Orange juice, which has always been touted as a great health tonic during cold and flu season, has a low, acidic pH of around 3.4, acidifying the body and weakening the immune system. Orange juice is 10,000 times more acidic than the pH of your blood!

Quick chemistry refresher: On the pH scale 7 is neutral. Anything lower than that is acidic and, in our research, has a detrimental effect on our bodies. Foods and drinks increase in acidity in increments of 10 with each numeral on the pH scale.

The amount of sugar, or fructose, found in orange juice actually slow down the activity white blood cells for 3 to 4 hours! That prevents these all-important cells in our immune systems from responding, cleaning up the bacteria and garbage from what we ingest as they normally should!

I’ve seen this phenomenon in the lab. Under the microscope, white blood cells can be seen to slow down and even become paralyzed in the blood plasma. No wonder so many colds and flus happen during the holiday season, when more sugary drinks and treats are munched away on than at any other time.

This month, I want to add to that all important principle of hydrating with alkaline water as discussed before.  I want to encourage you to consider drinking alkalizing beverages. Alkalizing beverages have pH counts much higher than orange juice – they lead to true wellness and the balanced pH state that are bodies are constantly working toward.

We call this concern for the body’s pH, the “New Biology” approach to health. Looking at the body’s pH levels reveals a fundamentally functional way of understanding our body in states of health and disease. This understanding is, perhaps, far different from what our biology books and teachers taught us way back when. The pH perspective takes into account how our digestive system works and how it contributes to blood and tissues that are healthfully alkaline. Our bodies are alkaline by design and acidic by function.

According to my husband and co-author, Dr. Robert O. Young, any beverage you drink – or any food you eat for that matter – goes into the mouth where the salivary glands immediately produce sodium bicarbonate to start alkalizing the fluids as they pass by the mouth and down the esophagus to the stomach. Once the beverages reach the stomach, the pylorus glands secrete sodium bicarbonate to further alkalize the beverage as well.

You may wonder, “So what?”. Here’s why all this business about bicarbonates matters…

Dr. Young’s research would indicate that sodium bicarbonate is produced in the stomach, the by-product is hydrochloric acid. The more acidic drinks or foods you consume the more the stomach produces sodium bicarbonate to alkalize these things before they enter the small intestine. (The small intestine must maintain a pH of 9.) As a result of all this bicarbonate, there will be more hydrochloric acid produced and left in the stomach as well. This is likely the reason so many people who eat a high acid diet have trouble with acid reflux. They have too much hydrochloric acid building up in their stomachs. That acid isn’t used by the body for digestion, but is simply a surplus by-product of the sodium bicarbonate production that is working to alkalize acidic intake.  Do you see the correlation?

Those of us constantly drinking acidic drinks are actually giving our stomachs the full-time job of breaking foods down with hydrochloric acid, rather than the function of simple processing food with sodium bicarbonate. Even if you’re not a chemist, you can imagine the strain on the stomach all this constant extra work could cause over time.  Hopefully the thought of that is enough to peak your interest in consuming natural, alkaline beverages.

We encourage everyone in our programs and on our retreats to simply drink more alkaline fluids! Fresh, raw green juices from vegetables and our morning Green AvoRado Kid Shake are so healthy for digestion! Instead of fruit smoothies which elicit that acid response from our hard-working stomachs, we drink green smoothies. Green drinks are less acidic in the stomach, so less sodium bicarbonate needs to be produced…and so less hydrochloric acid residue is left hanging around the stomach causing that acidic discomfort.

Think about this: people take an Alka-Seltzer, for an over acid stomach…just what are Tums really doing? Creating extra bicarbonate for our stomachs that we don’t need if we are consuming the bicarbonate-producing alkaline foods and drinks to begin with!

At the pH Miracle Center we all drink things that are close to the natural pH of our blood and tissues.  Drinks like water and green smoothies: simple, affordable and available to all! Self-healing and most preventative medicine are made of simple protocols just like this.

Equipped with that one concept of bicarbonate production in the stomach, you can do so much to improve your health. I challenge you to truly ‘digest’ this idea and to start an experiment with yourself: I challenge you to add raw green veggie juices (we drink spinach, cucumber, parsley, and celery juice every morning) and green shakes this coming week for breakfast and take note of how you feel and function.

  •           Do you notice less digestive disturbances?
  •           Do you have more energy?
  •           Are you finally dropping those unwanted pounds you’ve struggled with for so long?

Some people who start making these types of changes actually lost a pound of fat a day.  Incredible!

To get you started, try the Avocolada shake below. It’s base is organic cucumber with spinach (with a protein content of 49%) and avocado, which has more potassium than a sugary ripe banana. Add a little red grapefruit juice for some kick and some coconut meat for the ‘colada’ and your ready to go!

This is our favorite way to start the day at the pH Miracle Center, but you can also enjoy this creamy, dreamy shake anytime during the day or night. Babies and kids love it too!

Shelley’s Green AvoColada Shake
Serves two
1 English cucumber
1 avocado
4 cups baby spinach (two handfuls)
Juice from two red ruby grapefruits
Meat from one Young Thai coconut (I use Let’s Do Organic boxed raw coconut meat)
1 scoop greens powder (optional) (I use Doc Broc Greens from pH Miracle)
12 ice cubes
Mix on high in your Vita Mix or blender until smooth. Serve immediately!

Add 1 TB. Almond butter
 Add some good oils like pH Miracle Omega 369 (I would add 2 tsp.)
 Spray some ph Miracle pHlavor liquid mineral salt
 Use 2-3 limes instead of the grapefruit juice
Sprinkle cinnamon on top or some hemp seed protein granules

For children (or even transitioning adults) who are weaning off of sugary ice cream shakes you could use some Coconut Palm Sweetner, which is high in minerals and low on the glycemic index (sometimes called palm sugar) to make the shake sweeter to taste.

From our friends


  1. Definitely green smoothies! It freaks out all my roommates who are used to Jamba Juice sugary “smoothies.” I love them for breakfast. I also love making raw kale salads and using greens in stir fries!

    Caroline | 09.27.2012 | Reply
  2. Sautéed leeks and chopped kale, chard or collards ( or all 3), Raw kale Caesar (DELICIOUS) , chlorella tablets and ironically that picture is a juice I make us but with pineapple and lemon 🙂

  3. My husband and I recently turned vegan due to my intolerance for diary! I made the vegan Alfredo sauce recipe posted here a week or so ago and it was delicious! Yesterday I added that sauce to a roasted veggie lasagne that I filled with spinach, kale, cucumbers, peppers, onions, eggplant, etc! That is the most recent way I’ve loaded up a vegan dish with greens.

    Carley | 09.27.2012 | Reply
  4. Green juice, green smoothies & green powder. I also take chlorella and wheatgrass to deal with heavy metals (I have really high levels of mercury that I’m working to eliminate). I also love a mean spiraling-coconut meat smoothie – it’s like dessert!

  5. Making sure every meal has a veggie is important to me…and actually quite easy. Whether it be a morning smoothie, a lovely lunch salad, or a heaping side of sauteed kale for dinner. Kale is so wonderful (and, as I am learning, so very alkaline). My mom and dad were caterers in the 80’s and the joke is that kale was only ever used for “decoration” around the various food trays. Now…it takes center stage! Oh and don’t get me started on Kale chips…I love them alone, but also great as added crunch to salads, etc.

  6. I love my green smoothies for breakfast, a salad for lunch, usually featuring kale, and more greens for dinner in the form of another salad, more kale or some roasted broccoli. Yum!

    Jenny | 09.27.2012 | Reply
  7. I add kale, spinach, parsley, carrot tops, basically any green to my morning smoothies. Funny that i’m sipping on my green smoothie right now, feeling great, while a few of my surrounding co-workers are sneezing, coughing and blowing their noses 😉

  8. Also: using collard greens instead of wraps!

    Caroline | 09.27.2012 | Reply
  9. My favorite way to add greens to my day is to tell all of my personal training clients about them! I’m always shocked that clients have never heard of a green drink (like Doc Broc Greens from pH Miracle) before I mention it to them. I bring greens with me to the gym and have them enjoy a drink with me. I tell them, “It’s like taking food insurance!” since it’s so hard to get in all our nutrients with real food.

  10. I just recently added sensha green tea in powder form to alkaline water and shake.

  11. I’m NEW to Juicing. Bought TWO Juicers – one big- heavy duty one and a smaller one for QUICK – on the run Juice! I need all kinds of help on this but so far have been drinking Baby Spinach – Kale … and sometimes add Berries. So far- LOVING IT! I would LOVE to try the DOC BROC ……. 🙂

  12. I love to steam fry some yummy veggies in veggie broth (yeast free) with RealSalt and a bit of Bragg’s, scoop some into a bowl and then put a handful of microgreens and some mixed baby greens: kale, spinach etc. into my bowl of stir fried vegetables, mix it in and let the greens soften a little…then YUM…my mind, body and soul enjoy it in a way that never happened with acidic foods like hamburgers and such that I used to be addicted to.

  14. My favorite way of using the Doc broc’s power plants is in my ex girlfriend’s dog Bebe’s water, She goes nuts! When I first met this dog she wouldn’t even let me approach her, She would run away from me, it was a lot of work to win her over, but now she begs for the green drink, She goes nuts as soon as she sees the canister! I consider this part of my diet, the diet of my soul because since I started with the pH Miracle about a decade ago a became sensitive to animal abuse and on the other had to see a dog so excited about the pH Miracle tells me I’m doing something right and makes our day!

  17. Greens are so natural and yet we instantly repel green foods! When I go out into the world with my green drink(coconut water, spinach, chlorophyll, apple, mango, romaine lettuce, blueberry, kale and almonds) I get the most horrified faces! Haaa! I laugh and say,”but you think nothing of drinking toilet bowl blue colored Gatorade?!” that shuts em up! I have been drinking green smoothies for a long time, and I’ve experimented with so many variations…I love greens and green powders, it’s the perfect way to pack a power green punch into my diet. I always feel strong and remind myself that I’m eating what apes eat! Go green or go home baby!

  18. I have 16 siblings and 14 of them are still with us and so my favorite way of using to add greens to all my shakes and share them with my siblings who are not on this program. I surprise them with avocadoes. BioLive Sprouts, L-Argine, pHruits/pHoliage and Terra pHirma. I think because I’m sharing with them that some are trying to like what I’m doing! Also, I throw in a little prayer, over my shakes, of thankfulness of wisdom and knowledge with understanding of the New Biology!!!

  19. I raised my children in the eighties veg/ no dairy/ 30% raw. I learned to focus on alkaline through reading Edgar Cayce and old Zen teachings that encouraged alkaline foods. Whenever someone in the family felt a little under the weather I added baking soda to their water and it stopped colds in their tracks. Now we eat a diet 60% raw, we always have a large green salad prepared in the refrigerator ready to eat, and we have some at every meal of the day. We have morning green drinks, no fruits, and in the evening I make a gazpacho to have with dinner. The favorite in our house is what I call my warm salad, I cook veggies, with different spices each night, and add them to our big salad which warms it up. We have my 90 year old mother with us and she loves her green drinks.
    I had a store near the Fred Hutch Cancer Center in Seattle and the patients would come in, I found out that they were given green drinks and when they were on chemo that was the only thing they could tolerate.

  21. My morning green drink consists of zuchinni and cumbers from my garden. I juice them and also juice spinach, celery, and a lemon and 2 green apples. I add the juice to fresh made almond milk. (Homemade almond milk does not even compare to store bought, it is so yummy)

    Terrie | 09.27.2012 | Reply
  22. My shake is: 1 large tomato, almond milk, spinach, a little kale, a whole zucchini, 1 avocado and hemp protein. If I want a bit sweetness then a touch of Stevia. I love your Supergreens during the day but this is what I do in the morning.:)

  28. Cabbage soup with greens
    My version of the soup is made up of 2 bunches green onions, 2 bell peppers, small celery, small red cabbage, 6 teaspoons of crushed garlic, bunch of collard greens and red chard with most of the stems removed and Mrs. Dash original formula. Cut all vegetables into bite-size pieces. Put vegetables, except tomatoes, into pot. Cover with water and boil for 10 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer for approximately 30 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
    Add 2-28 ounce cans of diced tomatoes and 2-15 ounce cans of tomato sauce with juice (check the ingredients). Bring to boil and heat thoroughly and simmer for another 10 minutes. I add seasoning to the first 40 minute cycle and then when the tomatoes and tomato sauce are added I add more seasoning.]

    Bill McCracken | 09.27.2012 | Reply
    • Hi Bill. Your soup sounds wonderful, but as a suggestion, wean yourself off of canned tomatoes, and use fresh or those packed in glass jars. Bad ju-ju in the canning of tomatoes; their acidity reacts to the metal and you can google for more details. It’s so easy to puree fresh tomatoes in the food processor for soups.

  30. I belong to a CSA farm and love getting a big box of organic greens and other veggies delivered to my home every week. I immediately separate out the tender greens to use in a salad from the heartier greens like kale and cabbage, which I will juice. I wash, rinse, and spin all the greens and in my fridge sit two big containers, constantly providing me with easy options for salads, shakes, and juices. Health, energy, and balance all wrapped up the way nature intended.

  32. My favourite way to add a concentrated amount of greens to my diet is in a morning smoothie. Here in England the government is trying to encourage people to eat 5 fruits and vegetables every day – in my opinion this is nowhere near enough, in my morning smoothie alone I get about 20 or more. I juice 1 lettuce, 1/3 cucumber, a stick of celery, ginger, spinach, 1 lemon, 1 lime, broccoli,1 green pepper, 1/4 grapefruit and 3 apples. I then blend this juice with an avocado, almonds, a scoop of Doc Broc greens, a touch of cinnamon, a few dates for sweetness and fresh mint from the garden. This completely sets me up for the day and I know that as an athlete my body is getting everything it needs to run smoothly and repair itself 1st thing in the morning. I have noticed since living the PH miracle lifestyle my health is better, my performance is better and I am happier within myself. I sometimes get some funny looks if I’m drinking my green smoothie outside the house, but it’s always a conversation starter and it’s a good way to spread the PH miracle message!

  34. I make a modified version of a green smoothie I found in one of Dr. Young’s books: One hass avocado, two handfuls of baby spinach, a peeled or whole cucumber (european cucumbers also work), a bag of mung bean sprouts and one green tomatillo for flavor. All items I normally find at our local Hannaford supermarket; buy items the day you decide to make the smoothie for best results. Fill the blender with water from your water filter/ionizer up to an inch from the top and blend for a few minutes. My family calls it ‘green goop’ and won’t have any :-p. It’s a great conversation starter at work meetings: “Ew! What IS that you’re drinking?!?”. One blender will fill two 32 oz water bottles, so one blender batch is good for two days. Spring Mix substitutes well for baby spinach and tomatillos are optional. This is a great way to take psyllium husk fiber though I add it only to the smoothie portion I will be drinking, not to the blender. Enjoy!

  41. Hi! Just an important clarification for the author and the readers. As a chemistry major, physician and now nutritionist, it is very important to differentiate between acidic foods and Acidifying food. The fact that a fruit or vegetable is acid, does not necessarily mean That it is acidifying. Milk is slightly acidic because of its lactic acid content, however, raw milk is rich in alkaline ions that not only buffer the lactic acid but also are alkalinizing. So be careful whe you assume also the opposite, just because something is alkaline, does not imply that it has alkalinizing potential and viceversa. If you measure the pH of lemon juice, it will be acidic, however its net effect will be alkalinizing .
    Also, the correct term is Acidifying and alkalinizing.

    Thank you!

  46. If I’m having a negative thought about my greens, or I crave a sugary muffin for breakfast, I think of a simple truth: Happiness, not just Health, is the color Green. It lives, it breathes, it’s like me. This serves as motivation: get your greens in today, avoid those bad biological processes by doing so, and you’ll have an instant guarantee that your day will be GREAT! I’m usually always on the run, and even if I’m at home, I have little time to think of food, let alone make it. Therefore, I decided to grow my own green veggies and herbs so that I can go outside and in only 5 minutes retrieve a bowl full of organic, green goodness. I stick to the rule of have something green with every meal or snack. If I make smoothies or juices – 3 or more of the following will go into it: cucumber, fennel, kale, romaine lettuce, parsley, coriander, celery, watercress, tulsi (holy basil), spinach. I’ll pair a green salad (tossed with some olive oil and apple cider vinegar) with any cooked meal to help with the digestion of it. But, let’s face it; it’s sometimes hard to ‘keep-up-the-green’, especially if one doesn’t have a juicer or blender. What makes it A LOT easier for me, is an organic green powder. The one I use, The Real Thing, combines 7 seaweeds, wheatgrass, barley, alfalfa and 2 types of algae, namely Chlorella and Spirulina. I often alternate this with Moringa powder. This could be added to water, freshly-squeezed fruit juice, veggie-juices, smoothies or even teas. I think before you add greens to your stomach, you got to add greens to your thoughts. Know first that it WILL improve your mood and health, and then you will automatically find it easier and nicer to eat!

  51. For about 2 months now, I’ve been making and drinking a green juice for breakfast Monday through Friday each week. It’s really making a noticeable improvement in my weight, complexion, mood, and energy level. I use kale, parsley, ginger root, 1 cucumber, and either 1/2 a lemon or lime (but I prefer lemon). Some times I add chia seeds but I actually feel like those bother my digestion more than help it! I plan on making this a routine forever since I’m enjoying the benefits so much. I highly recommend. I also still drink a small cup of coffee each morning……that I won’t give up :)!

  55. For myself I am eager to try healthy ways especially when it comes to getting the greens in volved. Now for my children I encourage them to try after they pick and choose what they would like to put in their salads or smoothies and it most definitely works as long as they are the preparer they will give it a shot. They may not enjoy the taste every time but I let them know to try it with or without something.

  56. Years ago I juiced veggies (kale, spinach, cucumber, broccoli, brussel sprouts, celery, beet greens, beets, carrots & ginger) using an apple as the base or a tomato. I did this everyday & noticed a great improvement in my feeling of “well-being”. Even my mind seemed clearer. (My best friend was amazed at how good it tasted). I didn’t have a good blender to do smoothies then, but, I do now & I plan to get back on the wagon since I have been diagnosed with Barrett’s Esophagus & still waiting for the pathology report. With a new marriage (5yrs ago), an increase of time @ work, and no time for exercise, my eating habits changed drastically (for the worst) & my stress level went up. I, also, have “leaky gut”, so, I’m working on being gluten & grain free, too. I’ve been looking for more ideas for alkaline foods & glad I found this site. (Love alkaline water!)

  58. Every meal must have something green or colorful! My favorite way to add greens is to a smoothie or juice, but we always make sure every meal has something alkalizing!

  60. You don’t have enough research….facts are misrepresented.

    For example, orange juice is a highly acidic food due to its high citrus acid content, BU after being metabolized it will cause urine to become alkaline. It is “alkaline forming”. One can say the same amount lemons, milk, etc.

    Alkaline water = will turn acidic in the gut due to stomach acids. It’s practically useless unless you drink in such copious amounts that you may suffer from water toxicity.

    Wheat grass juice is fine, but not a miracle cure. You have to cut down on acidic foods and shift your overall diet as well as exercise to improve your health. If there was a superfood I’d say it’s either spirulina OR eating the right kinds of food at a time. Your enzymes should work with the type of food you eat, so eating meat and potatoes won’t work….you should try to eat a single sort of food in a meal and have more (but smaller) meals across the day. Of course, you can combine foods that all work with the same enzyme for digestion.

    And yes….add probiotics to your intestines and colon. That helps.

  62. I just tested my green drink (vital greens) with a ph meter which is calibrated and seems to work well. It gave a reading of less than 5!! Why is this ?

  63. Orange juice leaves a highly alkaline ash in the body. Just because it is acid before your body processes it doesn’t mean that it is bad. You have to make your food choices based on the ash that is left when your body processes it. You can’t do that with a meter. Now, to qualify the OJ issue… Lots of OJ would not be good for your teeth if they are bad while you are rebuilding your health. You would be giving them an acid bath, because your body has not yet processed it.

  67. I have a question about my urine pH.
    My first reading in the morning is 6.0. My second reading is 6.5 and my third reading after eating a piece of fruit for breakfast is a little closer to 7.0, but still not as high as I would expect.
    Here’s what I don’t understand. I juice greens everyday sometimes twice a day, and eat all plant based foods. What is the explanation for acidic urine when I am not eating anything acidic?
