The New Biology of Health - the Way to Perpetual Youth?
Just what is the "New Biology of Health?" And who's the snake oil salesperson promoting certain products as the cure-all for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease? Does it work ?
Simply put, the "New Biology of Health" is about maintaining your body's acid/alkaline balance or pH level. The ideal pH level, as measured by saliva, urine, or blood tests, is slightly alkaline.
Dr. Robert O. Young, cellular biologist and author of the "pH Miracle," teaches that our American lifestyles and diets destroy cellular health. Stress, the environment, and especially acid foods (almost everything you eat except for certain fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts) force your body's cells into unhealthy, acidic states. And, the state of your cells determines your overall health.
Basically, our lifestyles and diets make us sick, tired, and susceptible to viruses and bacteria as well as accelerating aging. Take a look at the pharmaceutical intake of people in our culture. It seems the number of pills you take is directly proportional to your age!
The Rebalancing Act -- Getting to the "pH Miracle"
OK, so where's the miracle? It's called pH balancing . . . restore your pH level to slightly alkaline via a cleansing process, and you're back in good health; no, the best heath of your life. But wait, you must maintain the correct pH level, so lose the meat, eggs, sugary fruits, desserts, dairy products, coffee, diet soda, and bread.
And, oh, by the way, drink so much water spiked with SuperGreens (grass) and pH booster that you triple the number of daily trips to the rest room.
Is It Worth the Effort?
Why subject yourself to such a radical change? Many people will never even try rebalancing because they believe you have to be a food nerd to alkalize. But, there are thousands of others who swear the "alkalarian" lifestyle dramatically improves their health and enjoy a salad for breakfast!
Let's take a look at an example of someone who's motivated to "get healthy" and regain that "youthful" feeling.
Here's a Real-Life Example
Rachael Boomher, age 55 and slightly overweight, suffered from chronic fatigue, high blood pressure and cholesterol, elevated blood sugar, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and borderline glaucoma. A few years ago, a routine test showed precancerous cells. Surgical intervention "corrected" this condition. And yes, Rachael is a real person!
Is Rachael a typical middle-aged baby boomer? Yup, but with a major difference . . . she believes that being sick, tired, and generally unhealthy can be changed . . . disregarding what doctors say about her "genes" and the culture's expectations about age-related health conditions.
Her mission - to regain and maintain her health - is an obsession. For several years, the mission was unsuccessful. Then she discovered "Living Health." In this CD program, Tony Robbins, the motivational guru/crusader, describes Dr. Young's "New Biology of Health." Although it sounded extreme, Rachael learned that Tony had tested it on himself and thousands of his followers with positive results. And isn't Tony the original energizer bunny?
Still, Rachael is a natural skeptic, so she researched Dr. Young, and found hundreds of incredible testimonials about improvements to people's health. She also discovered mixed reviews of his books. It seemed that Dr. Young was viewed as either a mad scientist or a life saver.
Launching the pH Balancing Program
Deciding to try pH balancing despite the critics' negative reviews, she eased into the program, starting with the swamp juice (SuperGreens) and pH drops.
Over the next month, she decreased the amounts of the most acid foods in her diet . . . red meat, sugar, pasta, dairy products, eggs, and processed foods. She added vegetables and salads, substituted grapefruit for oranges, almond milk for cow's milk, almond butter for peanut butter, and filtered water for tap water.
As Rachael's pH levels increased and her body eliminated deadly toxins, she felt more and more energized. She actually craved alkaline foods. Note that even though the desire to consume acidic foods diminished, she held onto a long-time daily habit of café au lait.
The 30-Day Experiment Pays Off!
Rachel's experiment with the pH Balancing program resulted in 2 big payoffs: a major boost in energy and the loss of more than 10 pounds with no effort. Really . . . no effort at all!
These results may seem unspectacular; but to Rachael, they represent a new beginning. Instead of pushing herself to get through each day and then collapsing on the couch at night, she thinks more clearly, acts more quickly, and has energy to spare for her family and hobbies. She anticipates that key indicators such as cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure will drop, especially if she continues to follow the program with the same level of enthusiasm she had initially.
What the pH Miracle Means to You
If you're weary of being sick and tired, stop blaming everyone and everything but yourself. Read about the "New Biology of Health." Start with the following web sites:
Before you decide that you cannot possibly give up your acid lifestyle, diet soda, juicy steaks, or fast food, try pH balancing for 10 days. Not a lifetime, just 10 days. You'll feel much better, especially if you have health challenges like Rachael. Honestly, it's NOT tough to grow old; we make it tough with our diet and lifestyles.
Please be aware that at first, SuperGreens and pH drops seem a wee bit pricey. But eventually, you may quit using prescriptions and some supplements. SuperGreens will then seem less costly overall because you're able to eliminate other expenses. And after all, what IS the price of perpetual youth?
