Dr. Young addresses Questions about Circulation Issues Related to Diabetic Neuropathy, Arthritis & other Inflammatory Conditions

Here is your next pH question/response by Dr. Robert Young, as promised...

There are many more questions to follow. However, if you have a particular question about alkaline living that you would like answered now, go ahead and submit it on the next page.

Some folks have asked about how they can help others become informed about their health too, so we've added an area for affiliates.

Dr. Young's responds to 2 questions about Circulation Issues related to Diabetic Neuropathy, Arthritis & other Inflamatory conditions:

How the acidic water promotes circulation - see for yourself here (1:24 mins)


Why the positively charged water creates circulatory energy to the extremities - See for yourself here (0:52 mins)


The Acid Fructose Is A Killer

A diet high in the dietary acid fructose increases the risk of developing high blood pressure (hypertension), according to a paper being presented at the American Society of Nephrology’s 42nd Annual Meeting and Scientific Exposition in San Diego, California. The findings suggest that cutting back on processed acidic foods and beverages that contain high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) may help prevent hypertension.

Over the last 200 years, the rate of the acid fructose intake has directly paralleled the increasing rate of obesity, which has increased sharply in the last 20 years since the introduction of HFCS. Today, Americans consume 30% more fructose than 20 years ago and up to four times more than 100 years ago, when obesity rates were less than 5%. While this increase mirrors the dramatic rise in the prevalence of hypertension, studies have been inconsistent in linking excess acidic fructose in the diet to hypertension.

Diana Jalal, MD (University of Colorado Denver Health Sciences Center), and her colleagues studied the issue in a large representative population of US adults. They examined 4,528 adults 18 years of age or older with no prior history of hypertension. Fructose intake was calculated based on a dietary questionnaire, and foods such as fruit juices, soft drinks, bakery products, and candy were included.

Bottom-line according to Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center, "there are NO safe dietary levels of the acid fructose. Fructose is a toxic acid from the fermentation of corn and other high sugar fruits that will compromise the delicate pH balance of the body and set the stage for sickness and dis-ease. If you want to be healthy stay away from ALL sugars including the fruit sugar fructose. You will live longer and healthier."

Vitamin D May Prevent Heart Attack and Stroke

Low vitamin D levels in the body may be deadly, according to a new study hinting that adults with lower, versus higher, blood levels of vitamin D may be more likely to die from heart disease or stroke.

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin mostly obtained from direct sunlight exposure, but also found in foods and multivitamins.

Dr. Annamari Kilkkinen, at the National Institute for Health and Welfare in Helsinki, Finland, and colleagues compared blood levels of vitamin D and deaths from heart disease or stroke over time in 2,817 men and 3,402 women in Finland.

At enrollment, participants were just over 49 years old on average, and had no indicators of cardiovascular disease, the researchers note in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

During follow-up of about 27 years on average, 640 of the participants (358 men) died from heart disease and another 293 (122 men) died from stroke.

Compared with participants' with the highest vitamin D, those with the lowest had 25 percent higher risk of dying from heart disease or stroke, Kilkkinen noted in an email to Reuters Health.

There was a "particularly striking association" between vitamin D levels and stroke deaths, the researcher noted, in that having the lowest vitamin D seemed to confer "twice the risk," compared with having the highest vitamin D.

Allowing for age, gender, and other demographic factors, plus alcohol intake, smoking, physical activity, and season in which vitamin D levels were obtained did not significantly alter these associations.

In this study, vitamin D levels were "substantially lower" than levels thought to be sufficient, and "somewhat lower" than those reported in previous studies in other European and American populations.

However, there is no "absolute consensus" as to what the optimal range of vitamin D should be, the investigators note. Also, it's not known whether low vitamin D actually causes increased risk for heart disease or stroke. Clearly, further study is needed, they conclude.

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center, "Vitamin D plays a significant role in maintaining the alkaline design of the body and preventing heart attack and stroke. I have found that taking at least 250 to 500 IU's of Vitamin D3 per 1 pound of body weight is recommended for prevention. If you are dealing with any acute or chronic condition then taking 1000 IU's of Vitamin D3 per 1 pound of body weight is recommended."

Cell Phones Can and Do Cause Brain Cancer

The bombshell results of a major decade-long study carried out in 13 countries will support longtime speculation that long-term cell phone use increases the risk of developing cancerous condition.

The $30 million report, which is to be released before the end of the year, follows a warning from the International EMF Collaborative that regular cell phone use could increase the risk of brain tumors significantly and that regular use is especially dangerous in children whose brains are still developing.

The cell phone industry assured us for years that cell phones are safe and don’t cause cancer and other problems. Major organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Cancer Institute, also have stated there is no evidence cell phones are dangerous.

But the official line may have to change because the WHO oversaw the new study.

According to the Daily Telegraph in London, the study will show “a significantly increased risk” of some brain tumors “related to use of mobile phones for a period of 10 years or more.”

Cell phone safety has been a concern for some experts ever since the death of Lee Atwater in 1991 from a brain tumor that developed under the exact spot where he held his cell phone. Sen. Ted Kennedy’s diagnosis and death from a malignant brain tumor also spurred safety fears. Kennedy’s brain tumor, called a glioma, was the type some experts have associated with the use of cell phones.

CTIA — the Wireless Association — and the Food and Drug Administration also have stated that cell phones aren’t a health risk.

But other experts, including my own research points to research that indicates a link between the electro-magnetic fields (EMF) of cell phones and three types of tumors:

* Glioma
* Cancer of a salivary gland near the ear called the parotid
* Acoustic neuroma, which is a tumor found near the ear

An Israeli study published two years ago found a 58 percent increase in risk for parotid tumors among people who relied heavily on their cell phones. And a Swedish study found that he risk for glioma and acoustic neuroma doubled after 10 years of heavy use.

Prominent neurosurgeons have stated they do hold cell phones next to their ears.

“I use it on the speaker-phone mode,” said Dr. Vini Khurana, a prominent researcher and an associate professor of neurosurgery at the Australian National University.

Other prominent experts agree. “I do not hold it to my ear,” said Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a practicing neurosurgeon who also is CNN’s chief medical correspondent. Gupta says he uses an earpiece.

Some experts haven’t waited for the WHO or FDA to issue warnings. Last year, Dr. Ronald Heberman, director of the University of Pittsburg Cancer Center, sent a memo to all faculty and staff, warning them of possible danger and advising them to cut cell phone use.

I have also published warnings that ALL cell phones or cell phone services emit radiation that is harmful to health and can cause a cancerous brain condition. You have to be at least 2 to 3 feet away from your cell phone to avoid being exposed to radiation in excess of the Environmental Protection Agency minimum of 3 mG.

Cell phone use has also been linked to other problems, including infertility, insomnia, hearing, and, of course, driving hazards.

The Australian Body Image Advisory Board - An exciting move forward..

This is a little different to my normal posts however I think the word should be spread far and wide about the work that the Australian Body Image Advisory Board is doing right now. For myself, far from the idealistic body that the fashion world portrays (I am 5ft tall and 55kg) and having 2 teenage daughters who are highly influenced by the media, the focus on creating positive media content in the way of diversity,realistic and natural images of people (among many other positive things), is a ground breaking and exciting move toward encouraging us all to be content with who we are and not feeling inadequate because we don't replicate exactly what most magazines & advertising campaigns portray as the ideal.

There is change happening right now & it's exciting. With Germany's most popular women's magazine Brigitte banning professional models from its pages in favour of "real women", the huge following of personal style blogs portraying real people, and groups such as the National Body Image Advisory Board working hard to tackle the issue of negative body image that effects so very many of us. It's about time, but better late than never... Below is Mia Freedman presenting the report..

The Sexiest and Hottest Celebrity Today: Megan Fox Fashion Rock On

Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

I'm sure all of us know about this hot chic that known as hottest and sexiest lady of 2008. No wonder, its Megan Fox. Well, we can know Megan for her achievements in her career as a celebrity. And we knew her also for her alluring and seductive body as part her fashion statement. For being an actress, she already won lot of awards and she earn pretty much respects for being a model of some Designer clothing brands in which she was part of well known personalities in modeling fashion world. Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

These are some article content on how we recognize Megan Fox. Megan Denise Fox was born in Rockwood, TN on May 16, 1986, she was the daughter of a former tourism director for Roane County, and though a self-confessed tomboy, began exploring acting and dance at the age of five. After relocating to St. Petersburg, FL, she continued her training throughout high school, and soon added modeling to her list of endeavors. A string of wins at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention convinced her to launch her acting career, so she wasted no time moving to Los Angeles while only 16. Fox made her screen debut as a bratty heiress in the Olsen Twins feature “Holiday in the Sun” (2001), where she was billed under her full name in the closing credits. Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

After winning several awards in the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in South Carolina, Fox makes her film debut in the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen flick Holiday in the Sun. The straight-to-DVD release pegs Ashley's character against Fox's for the affections of a local boy. Though Fox works mostly with Ashley on the film, she says, "Mary-Kate's more my speed–she's into rock." Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

Megan Fox lands her first major movie role opposite Lindsay Lohan in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. As queen bee of the drama club Carla Santini, Fox battles Lohan to maintain her rule. On set, "Lindsay and I weren’t the best of friends," Fox tells FHM. "Because I looked older than her, she’d be nice to my face so I would buy her cigarettes." Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

Megan Fox joins ABC's Hope & Faith as the 16-year old niece of show star Kelly Ripa. While on the sitcom, Fox appears in a provocative shoot for FHM and brazenly discusses her sex life: "I have the libido of a 15-year-old boy." After three seasons, Hope & Faith is canceled in 2006. Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

Megan Fox and former Beverly Hills, 90210 heartthrob Brian Austin Green, who is 13 years her senior, meet on the set of Hope & Faith. "We've lived together for three years," Green, who proposes to Fox in 2006, tells TV Guide in 2008. "We have tattoos of each other's names." In February 2009, they call off their engagement, but remain close. Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

Megan Fox shoots to fame with her scantily-clad role in Transformers, wth Shia LaBeouf and Josh Duhamel. The film grosses $700 million worldwide, and spawns the sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. "If I get stuck doing comic-book films for the rest of my life, I’ll be really happy," Fox tells GQ. "I love those types of movies. And I don’t mind being sexy–if it’s a character with a backstory and an arc and something progresses." Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

After being crowned FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World, Fox sets tongues wagging (including her own!) with her GQ cover. The starlet, who reveals that she had a lesbian relationship with a stripper, also passionately defends Disney star Vanessa Hudgens, who endured a nude photo scandal in 2007. "You shouldn’t have to apologize," says Fox. "Someone betrayed Vanessa, but no one’s angry at that person. She had to apologize. I hate Disney for making her do that. F--k Disney." Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

And after trotting around the world promoting Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the blockbuster sequel earns an astounding $60.6 million in its opening day, and goes on to bank over $200 million in its first five days. "It's a badass popcorn summer movie," Fox tells EW. In September, she headlines Diablo Cody's girl-gore flick, Jennifer's Body. Megan Fox Sexy Fashion Image

Thinking about tan leather heels...

I really hate it when I come across an amazing pair of shoes, fall in love with the style, then find out it's available in either black or tan leather.

For me it becomes a complicated & difficult decision, especially if I'm not shoe shopping for a specific occasion, to accessories a particular outfit or I really can't afford them but have to have them anyway. I'm genuinely torn...

Once I've decided that I NEED this new shoe, I go over each of their merits. A pair of black heels are classic & dependable, however there's just something about that natural earthy brown leather that says your a little edgy and bohemian, black is more grown up, tan will help make an outfit look more understated & chic .... it goes on and on and it's impossible!

Right now however I think I'm leaning toward the tan side. I know black always looks amazing, however don't have any formal events to go to in the near future, tan has more of a summery feel, plus I've found lots of evidence to support my thinking....

A sneak peak at the November Issue of Mylookbook - Tan Heels that available right now!



From time to time, a person will contact The pH Miracle Center to ask us or warn us about misinformation and criticisms concerning Dr. Robert O. Young. This notice will serve to address such questions or comments.

For those doctors, scientists, educators and various professional educators who have looked dispassionately over Dr. Young's shoulders for more than two decades, Dr. Young is clearly recognized as the #1 nutritional microbiologist in the world. As a generous humanitarian educator and prolific co-author, and based on the clinical foundation of live and dried blood microscopy of 40,000 individuals, Dr. Young's documented track record of healing and disease reversal stand as an increasingly bright beacon of hope throughout a world beseiged by costly and frustrating westen medicine.

As his detractors so energetically and accurately point out, what Dr. Young does NOT have under his long list of achievements, awards, and recognition from around the world, are scores of research studies ordinarily funded by government agencies, pharmaceutical companies and mainstream medicine. It now requires millions of dollars to fund large scale, randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled studies that have been peer-reviewed and published by traditional and tightly controlled scientific health and medical journals. Neither academia nor the medical industry have shown an interest in highlighting a powerful science such as clinical live and dried blood microscopy and its sister-science of pH balancing that would portend the possibility of discrediting their own.

For sure, the multi-trillion dollar medical and pharmaceutical industry have not been willing to travel outside their well-controlled research designs and methodolgies that do not perpetuate and protect their vested interests. In fact, other scientific methodologies are blocked from consideration by publications that turn away from case studies, n-of-1 designs, interviews, group and individual surveys, repeated measures, and similar scientific methodologies designed for data of a different scale and concept.

Western medical science disingenuously claims that information derived from other than traditional research methodologies poses a threat to the best interests of science. In fact, that to which new information and emerging technology poses a threat is the continuation of monopolistic domination of health services which will also highlight the emerging and critical role of digestive process, modern food, blood health, and nutritional prevention models.

There are an estimated 6.4 billion people on this planet and there exist almost as many opinions on any given subject that one might think of. This phenomenon is increasingly prevalent as the Internet has provided large and incessant "microphones" to millions of people who have virtually little or nothing to say. Some choose the ideologue extremes. If one says, "puppies are cute".. .there will be someone on the Internet who will disagree. This contrarian phenomenon is a fact of modern life, and especially of life in the "connected world" and the Internet.

The Internet is an especially "lawless frontier" where people can say anything they like about anything they choose, and there is not much anyone can do about it. Peaceful and patient minds must simply "steel" themselves against the slings and arrows, especially those of fear and ignorance.

If there was anything that could be done to control what is said and perpetrated on the Internet, the United States Military, without doubt, would control the statements and postings of Terrorist Organizations and various disturbed minds; yet these web sites continue to proliferate. Not even the worlds' sovereign governments or their military might can control what is said and done on the Internet, no matter how ignorant and inhuman----no matter how violent.

Our attornies once told us, "When the law is on your side, you pound on the law. When the law is against you, you pound on the table." This is exactly what Dr. Young's detractors are doing. The Science and the results are on Dr. Young's side, and so his detractors sling mud, attempt to slur his reputation, and take unwarranted shots at his character… the equivalent of "pounding on the table".

Institutions and organizations like Dr. Young and his modestly small company must simply take the high road; they must "ride through" the libel and slander, and "live by their record".

The trouble with trying to defend against any libel or slander is that you "have to repeat the libel or slander". Dr. Young has been the leading light in the field of "Alkaline Living for Health" ™ for more than 30 years. He is published in dozens of languages. He has lectured at Harvard and Johns Hopkins. He is a serious scientist, at the top of his field, and so he is a most visible target for the detractors of accomplishment and progress.

Recognizing that there is not much that Dr. Young can do to control what his detractors say and do, especially on the Internet, Dr. Young has chosen to let his work, the thousands of followers and testimonials, the many national and international awards and recognition, and his years of accomplishment speak for themselves. He does not comment on rancorous information about himself, or his science, posted on the Internet, choosing instead to spend his time in furthering his work in health and healing for those who demonstrate the fair-mindedness to listen and the integrity to weigh the record in good conscience.

Obama Announces a H1N1 Swine Flu National Emergency Declaration - Where's The National Emergency?

Obama's H1N1 national emergency declaration could invoke FEMA response to pandemic (opinion)
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) President Obama's declaration of a national pandemic emergency is "no cause for alarm," reported the mainstream media throughout the weekend. The declaration is nothing more than a "precaution," they say. "It's really more a continuation of our preparedness steps," said Anne Schuchat, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, in a USA Today story.

In other words, there's not really any emergency at all. So why declare a national emergency in the first place? The media reports this was done to allow hospitals to bypass federal regulations concerning the setting up of large-scale triage sites -- emergency medical camps quickly constructed to deal with large numbers of sick people.

But at the same time, H1N1 isn't causing large-scale sickness. As USA Today reported, an expert on infectious disease, P.J. Brennan (the chief medical officer for the Penn Health System at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia) said, "The public ought to take some solace, some relief in this. It's not a suggestion that things have deteriorated in any way. In no way is the virus more severe or more difficult to manage."

So let me get this straight. The H1N1 virus remains mild. The CDC reports that swine flu infections already peaked out in mid-October. There have been no new developments in swine flu that would be cause for alarm and no reason to suspect huge numbers of sick people flooding into the hospitals. And yet, for some reason, the Obama administration has declared a national pandemic emergency specifically for the purpose of speeding the ability of hospitals to process large masses of sick people through emergency medical triage tents?

What are these people not telling us?

Something doesn't add up here. Why would the U.S. government need to declare a national emergency to enable hospitals to handle a flood of sick people when there is no flood of sick people (and the pandemic seems to be fizzling out)?

This is more like the kind of preparation you might expect in advance of a biological terrorism attack, not for a flu that appears no more dangerous than the seasonal sniffles.

The National Emergencies Act and FEMA
Meanwhile, the media ignores the rest of the story about what dangerous powers a declaration of a national emergency puts into play. As reported here on NaturalNews, this declaration effectively ends many civil liberties in America and, at least on paper, puts the U.S. government in the position of having the legal authority to force vaccinations on the entire population at gunpoint (if they wanted to).

The National Emergencies Act passed in 1976 has some peculiar realities attached to it. In particular, as Wikipedia reports:

A federal emergency declaration allows the United States Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to exercise its power to deal with emergency situations ... Typically, a state of emergency empowers the executive to name coordinating officials to deal with the emergency and to override normal administrative processes regarding the passage of administrative rules.

Got that yet? By declaring a national emergency, Obama invokes a set of laws that not only override important sections of the U.S. Constitution, but that also activate FEMA to take charge of "responding" to the emergency.

Now we know why they need all those emergency medical tent camps near the hospitals. FEMA's in charge! And if FEMA handles the swine flu pandemic in the same way the agency handled the Hurricane Katrina disaster, we may indeed need all those emergency triage tents after all.

Those of you who have been following the ongoing march to destroy the freedoms of the American People already know about FEMA camps. These aren't Boy Scout field trip camps; they're detention centers designed to hold large numbers of people for "emergency" purposes. Many theories abound on what these FEMA camps might be used for (www.campFEMA.com) (http://www.globalresearch.ca/index....).

They could conceivably be used to quarantine people who are infected with a dangerous pandemic virus. On the other hand, they might also be used to isolated and detain people who refuse to be vaccinated against any declared pandemic. Under the National Emergencies Act and related U.S. law, FEMA would have two years of near-total control over the civilian population, during which people could be subjected to forced vaccinations, mandatory searches of their homes, gunpoint detainment and "involuntary transportation" to a FEMA detainment facility, and so on.

I'm not saying they're going to do all this, but they could if they wanted to!

And that's not freedom. Real freedom means you have the guaranteed right to be safe from being detained, or arrested without cause, or injected with a government-mandated chemical. Under a declaration of a national emergency, your "freedom" is at the whim of those who maintain police state powers over you. You're only "free" if they decide to refrain from exercising the power they have over you. It's the same kind of freedom you might get as a peasant in some Medieval kingdom where the king says, "You're free to go."

Now, some of these freedom-restricting actions might conceivably be justifiable if a truly dangerous pandemic virus were sweeping through the population killing millions, causing huge disruptions in the national infrastructure and threatening the nation with a partial or total shutdown of essential services. But that is not happening here. H1N1 is a mild virus that rates astonishingly low on the severity scale. If H1N1 were a hurricane, it would be little more than a "tropical depression." It is not a category five hurricane, nor a phase six pandemic. Virtually everyone who is exposed to H1N1 generates their own antibodies and cures themselves naturally. According to hospital reports, those who have died from the H1N1 virus are almost exclusively people who were already suffering from preexisting conditions that compromised their health such as asthma or extreme obesity.

By any measure, H1N1 as currently configured appears to present no extraordinary threat to the health of the population. So once again, we must ask: Why declare a national emergency and initiate a FEMA response to something that's not really an emergency?

Why I'm concerned
For the first time in this whole pandemic situation, I'm concerned. Not due to the virus itself, because that's a mild virus that presents no real threat to the population at large. I'm concerned about what we don't know might be going on behind the scenes here.

These preparations for large-scale medical triage tents and the emergency activation of FEMA have me worried that the American people aren't being told the whole story. Perhaps a terrorist organization is planning on releasing a wildly dangerous mutation of H1N1 in some major U.S. city. Or perhaps some vaccine maker is, in fact, that terrorist organization. (The best way to sell more vaccines would be to release a mutated form of H1N1 into the population and scare up some more sales...)

Or maybe, as some creative thinkers have suggested, the vaccine itself IS a bioweapon, and the U.S. government is preparation for large-scale fatalities it expects to see soon.

Or maybe these are just fleeting, dark visions from crazy people, and the U.S. government is a benevolent organization with all our best interests in mind, and they're jumping through these bureaucratic hoops to make sure there are plenty of hospital beds to go 'round just in case more people get really sick.

But even that explanation doesn't hold water. A "national emergency declaration" isn't necessary to waive hospital tent rules. Obama could have easily accomplished the same thing with an Executive Order, without having to invoke the National Emergencies Act or put FEMA in charge at all.

He chose the emergency declaration for a specific reason. I guess we'll all have to wait and see what that real reason turns out to be.

Sixteen Ways To Help You or Your Child With the Flu Symptoms

How I Helped My 9 Year Old Daughter Safely Move Through the Flu Symptoms in 3 Days in August 2009 by Corrine Brandi My daughter, Caroline was very sick for 3 days this August – headache, sore throat, high fever, dizziness, chills, sweats and throwing up. She certainly had the flu. The specific label is unimportant as I never take kids to a doctor to be labeled. Instead I help them get well. These are the things that we did – exactly. Three days later she was perfectly fine and 100% back to her routine and lifestyle. You can do it too…. Before getting into the specifics I’d like to talk about a broader paradigm. The body eliminates dietary, envirnomental, microbial toxins (from bacteria, yeast,and mold) and metabolic wastes (the byproducts of energy production) in four basic ways: respiration, perspiration, defecation and urination. Also known as breathing, sweating, moving the bowels and urinating. Throwing up also works but is less pleasant… Notice that acidic or sick people run a fever and sweat, have rapid and shallow breath, urinate frequently as long as they are hydrated and sometimes develop diarrhea. Please do not try and suppress these natural elimination processes with acidic drugs! All of these things are ways of getting better. DO NOT administer Tamiflu, aspirin, Tylenol, Advil, or Alieve, etc. as these drugs stop the natural elimination process and are being investigated as causing more severe illness and even death in the case of the flu. Why? Because they all acidify the blood and tissues which the body is trying to reverse. Taking these acidic prescription and/or nonprescription drugs prevent the body's natural process to return it back to an alkaline natural alkaline state. In my case, neither of my daughters, now 9 and almost 12 have ever had the need for any toxic acidic drug, over the counter or prescription; nor have they ever received an acidic poisonous vaccination. Here are sixteen things I did with Caroline when she was sick or over-acid to help alkalize and detoxify her body from excess acidity, thereby allowing her body to heal and return to an alkaline balance: 1. Most important of all is super hydration with high pH alkaline water - 9.5 or better. You can buy water in a bottle, the best is pH Miracle Water, Essentia or Evamore. You can add alkalizers found at a healthfood store or from The pH Miracle Center. You can also simply add aluminum free baking soda, Redmills Bob’s Baking Soda found at any health food store or section or Dr. Young's pHour Salts which is even better because it contains in addition to sodium bicarbonate, potassium, magnesium and calcium bicarbonate. Best of all, invest in an alkaline water machine that does it for you, and again check the pH Miracle Center for the best water machines, such as the pH Miracle Mark I Ionizer. Drink as much as possible as often as possible. Dr. Young recommends to drink at least 1 ounce of alkaline water per 1 pound of weight. http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-463-ph-miracle-mark-i-ionizer.aspx http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-221-phour-salts-tm-454-grams.aspx 2. Move the diet to liquid and/or pureed alkaline foods. Do not use the body’s energy to digest low water content dry acidic foods. Use it instead to heal. Be stingy with the energy. Saute some anti-microbial onion, ginger and garlic in coconut oil. Get a box of organic veggie broth and add any mostly green veggies you like (NOT corn or mushrooms). We love broccoli, kale, chard, and celery. Heat until the veggies just give to preserve their energy. Preferably puree with sea salt or pH Miracle pHlavor salt and olive oil or pH Miracle Avocado oil for super nutrition. Or just eat whole. http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-240-rancho-del-sol-all-natural-cold-pressed-virgin-avocado-oil-with-garlic-250-ml.aspx http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-212-phlavor-8-oz-bottle.aspx 3. As a matter of fact add sea salt or Dr. Young's pH Miracle pHlavor salt and avocado oils to everything you eat. Sea salt sets up the electrical charge in the body so cells can communicate properly and provides much needed minerals. Oils and fats like avocado, olive, hemp, flax, blends like Udos and coconut oil both buffer acids, provide materials to build cell walls and in the case of saturated coconut oil, energy to burn. Coconut oil is also wonderful for the liver as it struggles to clean the blood. My favorite is Wilderness Family Naturals but you can purchase any cold-pressed organic oil. Adding fresh sliced raw avocado or pH Miracle Avocado oil to the top of the soup is a bonus and again adds energy! Olive oil and avocado oil are amazing medicine. Use it first thing in the AM to detoxify the head. Upon waking take a tablespoon of extra virgin organic olive or pH Miracle avocado oil and squish vigorously in the mouth for 3 minutes. Set a timer. Really squish it! This will pull toxins and microforms (bacteria and yeast) out of the head while you spit them down the drain. Rinse mouth with the pH Miracle pHour salts when done. Amazing gross stuff comes out, sometimes white and foamy with yeast. http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-239-rancho-del-sol-all-natural-cold-pressed-virgin-avocado-oil-250-ml.aspx http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-212-phlavor-8-oz-bottle.aspx http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-221-phour-salts-tm-454-grams.aspx 4. Add super-foods to your water like Doc Broc Power Plant greens and moringa powder. In addition juice green veggies and grasses and drink up! http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-378-doc-brocs-power-plants.aspx 5. Eliminate – just for now at least – all acidic and stressful foods. At the top of the list is anything you might drink except water, veggie broth, herbal tea and juiced greens. This includes all fruit juices, sodas, sports drinks, milk, coffee and alcohol. Next most important is all dairy, including the fermented kind called yogurt. Following this is sugar, meat, peanuts, vinegar, and of course any and all processed foods. 6. Start taking Vitamin D3 – all over the press as the single most important thing to do to help with the flu symptoms. Dr. Robert O. Young also has a super potent form of D3 at 50,000 IU's per capsule. This high potent D3 can be purchased on line at: www.phmiracleliving.com. Due in part to the overuse of chemical sunscreens, acidic diets and lifestyles most of us are deficient in vitamin D3. http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-404-ph-d3.aspx 7. Open blood flow and deliver nutrition to the cells. http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-405-young-phorever-blood-philter.aspx 8. Take super antioxidants like glutathione, N-acetyl-cystein, and R-pHactor. http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-347-glutathione-4-oz.aspx http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-307-nac-4oz.aspx http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-399-young-phorever-r-phactor.aspx 9. Use colloidal silver to improve circulation to acidic areas of the body. It can be used anywhere in the body including up the nose and in the eyes, and even on cuts to disinfect them. You can also gargle with it. We always keep colloidal silver in the house. Other tried and true excellent supplements are Echinacea and Zinc, all available at any healthfood store or at the pH Miracle Living Center. http://www.phmiracleliving.com/c-8-health-supplements.aspx 10. Use a blend of salt and bicarbonates to mix in alkaline water to irrigate the sinus passages. You can use a neti pot or Dr. Hana's Nasal Wash System. http://www.natlallergy.com/prod/1604/dr-hanas-nasopure-organic-hypertonic-saline-nasal-rinse-system.html?sid=GOOGLE&eid=GOOGLE&tid=g_nasopure&gclid=CKrTt-i2250CFdVL5Qod-DTKrQ 11. Move the lymphatic system, the body’s sewer system of excess acidic waste. Jump on a mini-tramp, get in a far-infrared sauna (I have one in my cellar) or just gently move, even if it’s walking around the house. vibrate on a whole body vibrational machine. In addition detox foot pads while sleeping, such as are excellent for pulling toxins out of the lymph through the bottom of the feet. You’ll be amazed at the black, gooey, stinky junk that gets pulled out! Another favorite for lymphatic release I use all the time is a warm bath with 1 or 2 cups baking soda or pHour salts and 1 or 2 cups Epsom Salts. Have the child sit in the bath for 20 minutes drinking one of the alkaline fluids I’ve talked about. In that short time your child can dump up to a quart of toxins into that bath water. You can also use more expensive bath salts that include essential oils and are found at any healthfood store. Again, this is excellent to promote healing sleep. http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-357-rebounder-with-bar.aspx http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-304-vibraphirm.aspx http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-107-acuped-foot-pad-pkg-of-30.aspx http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-189-ph-miracle-dry-heat-sauna-model-1000.aspx 12. Detoxify the bowel from acidic proteins and sugars. Many kids are constipated because we feed them ‘kid food’. Ever look at the crap on a ‘kid’s menu?’ Many households are also child-centered and the children train the parents to feed them only junk by refusing to eat anything healthy. When sick I will move to baking soda or pHour salts in water to clear the bowel. If your child refuses to drink it, or can’t because of vomiting, then I would suggest you head for an enema. Fleet Enemas are safe and effective. It’s amazing how much better they feel after eliminating the garbage. I’ll only do this with permission on an older child and would never force or put fear into a sick child unless it is absolutely the last resort. http://www.phmiracleliving.com/p-221-phour-salts-tm-454-grams.aspx 13. Do not fear fever. My Naturopathic Doctor always told me “watch the child, not the fever”. Fever is a natural defense and should not be suppressed. A medical emergency is only if the child is lethargic and uncommunicative and cannot be revived. This generally can be resolved very quickly by spraying the pH Miracle pHlavor salts into the childs mouth every 5 minutes. Other than that here are some strategies to help your child feel more comfortable:- cold cloths to the head, nape of the neck and wrists - light blankets or just a sheet - tepid baths being careful not to chill the child - and my favorite, wet socks. Take a pair of white cotton socks and wet under cool water. Put them on the child’s feet and then immediately put pure wool socks over the wet socks. The body will pull the heat out of the head and use it to dry the socks. The child will usually sleep. If socks don’t provide enough relief then the ultimate strategy is sheets. This is usually best for younger children but will work with anyone. Strip the child naked. Wet a white cotton sheet with cool water. Place the child on the sheet and roll the child up in it. Immediately roll the child up in a wool blanket. Hold your child and reassure him or her until the child falls asleep. The child won’t like it at the beginning but it has always cut the fever enough to allow the child to sleep, which is the goal, when everything else has failed and your child is miserable. In 11 years this strategy has never failed me. 14. Homeopathic remedies are often extremely useful. They work on the theory of like cures like and are merely the vibration of the ingredient, not the ingredient itself so there is zero chance of toxicity. Caroline tends to respond to Aconite often but there are others for fever including Belladonna and Bryronia. Consult a homeopath or just Google it and get one at the health food store that matches the child’s symptoms. Make sure that the homeopathic remedies are free from alcohol. Simple strategies, many of which our grandmothers have told us – clean water, soup, move the bowels – because they work. 15. Lead by example. If you are fearful your child will be fearful. Be the rock. Stay close; leave only when the child is comfortable or asleep and even then only for short trips to the kitchen or bathroom. Reassure your child that the body is SO SMART that it knows exactly what to do. That he or she will be fine and that you are there for him or her. 16. Turn off the acidic TV and read or tell a story. Touch your child if he or she will allow. Let him or her sleep in your bed, turn down the lights and play a favorite music if he or she is up to it. Create a safe space of healing with perhaps essential oils that are calming like lavender, etc. Go with whatever the child wants as long as it fits within the healing guidelines. Extremely acidic sick kids change their minds quickly. First they want the covers off, then on. They might be angry or fearful one minute and clingy the next. It’s all ok because the emotions are part of the healing process, they are also being released. I am not a doctor; I’m just a Mom who loves her kids so much, just like all Moms. These are the strategies I’ve learned from people much smarter than I am that have lightened my load and lifted my heart because I no longer fear sickness. It breaks my heart to see other kids suffer because their parents lack the knowledge to help them and are driven to fear by the media and Big Pharma. In reality, our bodies are always trying to be well! So rather than fight it we have learned to help the body do what it is trying to do anyway… Life Wants to Live, it is Universal Law...


What Doctors Will Do For Money?

The American Academy of Family Physicians has come under fire from nutrition and alternative health advocates for a new partnership with the Coca-Cola company.

Two weeks ago, the organization announced that it would accept a grant from Coke to "develop consumer education content on beverages and sweeteners for FamilyDoctor.org," a consumer health Web site.

Lori Heim, MD, president-elect of AAFP, said in a statement that the organization was looking forward to working with the soda maker "and other companies in the future on the development of educational materials to teach consumers how to make the right choices and incorporate the products they love into a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle."

Yesterday, the Centers for Science in the Public Interest said the AAFP should urge patients to avoid sweetened soft drinks, which "promote obesity, diabetes, tooth decay, and other health problems."

Marion Nestle, PhD, a food policy researcher at New York University, called the partnership an "embarrassing conflict of interest."

"I hope AAFP members decide that no matter what Coke paid for this partnership, their loss of credibility is not worth the price," she wrote on her blog, Foodpolitics.com.
Kelly Brownell, PhD, of Yale, called the AAFP's acceptance of the grant money "disheartening."

"There is no question that products made by the soft drink companies contribute to diseases that family physicians then have to treat, often without much success," Brownell said. "Taking the money to develop guidelines for healthy eating is beyond imagination."
Other nutrition experts said criticizing the initiative may be premature.

"If [AAFP] started to go soft on things like sugar-sweetened beverages, that would be a concern," said Keith Ayoob, EdD, RD, of Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York.

"On the other hand, they may say 'we don't want people drinking soda in inappropriate amounts.' If Coke wants to fund that, I'm fine with that."

Ayoob said the overall message needs to define a specific quantity of acceptable soda and sugary beverage consumption in order for it to be a useful message.

"When you say things like 'moderation' and you don't define what that moderation is, it leaves it all open to interpretation," he said.

Advocates of the partnership say sugar-sweetened beverages are not the only culprit in the obesity epidemic. In an Oct. 7 editorial in The Wall Street Journal, Coke CEO Muhtar Kent said "it's not just about calories in. It's also about calories out."

Kent also argued that sugar-sweetened beverages "have been singled out in spite of the fact that soft drinks, energy drinks, sports drinks, and sweetened bottled water combined contribute 5.5% of the calories in the average American diet, according to the National Cancer Institute.
"It's difficult to understand why the beverages we and others provide are being targeted as the primary cause of weight gain when 94.5% of caloric intake comes from other foods and beverages."

Douglas E. Henley, MD, executive vice president of the AAFP, said physicians should urge their patients to "lead a balanced lifestyle," and noted that sodas can still be a part of that.

"We will move forward with this commitment by providing educational materials on sweeteners and how to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle while still enjoying many of the foods and beverages consumers prefer," he said.

The alliance comes as Coca-Cola will be releasing mini-cans that contain only 7.5 ounces of soda and 90 calories in New York and Washington in December.

Bottom-line according to Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center, "all soft drinks are hard on the body! Why? The answer is simple. They are ACIDIC. The pH of these so-called soft drinks runs around 2.5 which is more toxic then beer, more toxic then coffee and more toxic then your own urine. Soft drinks contain not only sugar which is a toxic acid but they also contain carbonic acid, phosphoric acid and artifical flavors and coloring. So what is the bottom-line on soft drinks? They are hard drinks and any amount is toxic to the human body!"

Outfit Make-Over - Just add jacket

It’s pretty clear that the easiest way to update your outfit right now is with the simple addition of a jacket. I know it's not ground breaking fashion news, however one of the things I love about this trend is that the styles are so diverse and it seems there are no strict rules. Styles include the tuxedo, military, denim, sequined or leather, whatever your choice of jacket, it’s the unavoidable essential accessory this season (yes I know we're coming into Summer but I’m pretty sure they’ll be just as important next Winter).. You can do them with the traditional items like leggings and jeans, I’m loving them with a floaty dress or even a pair of shorts (Olivia Palermo & Blake Lively Style) Here’s some inspiration for the week ahead...

That's why I was darn excited this morning to come across this image of Shenae Grimes beautifully showcasing all my current favourites in one cute look.
