Book review by Keith Payne: The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health


Book review by Keith Payne

The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health 

Authors: Robert O. Young, Shelley Redford Young

Copyright 2002, 2010 by Robert Young, PhD

Robert Young says that health is all about pH balance. This book is based on microscopic evaluation of blood leading to correct nutrition. He says when imbalance occurs we get the signs of disease: low energy, fatigue, poor digestion, excess weight, foggy thinking, aches and pains, as well as major disorders. This book is about reclaiming the balance.

Young says of all the balances the human body strives to maintain, the most crucial is the one between acid and base (or alkaline).

Maintaining the alkaline pH of the body’s fluids is critical for good health.

In this book Young explains that most of us are very acidic. He says the whole idea is to keep your body basic thereby eliminating dietary and metabolic acid. To that end you should focus on foods that alkalize your body.

Young goes on to tell you what foods to eat and how this cleanses the body. He provides many testimonials that illustrate the value in making changes to your diet. He provides a listing of foods and recipes to help you build the correct diet.

By and large I think this book has a lot of merit. It makes sense to me that disease can only grow in an acidic environment. If you have weight issues or health problems you may want to give this book a try. It may be what you’ve been looking for.
