pH Miracle Diet

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

Background


The pH Miracle is written by microbiologist and nutritionist, Robert Young, PhD. It is based on the concept that the pH levels in our blood and tissues significantly affect our health and when our body is too acidic this can cause fatigue, weight gain, low immunity, parasites, Candida and general poor health.

We can overcome these health problems by adjusting the pH level of the fluids in our body through consuming a diet with a high amount of alkaline foods and following the principles of a healthy lifestyle. The pH Miracle Diet contains guidelines for transitioning to an alkaline diet as well as a complete program for lifelong health maintenance.

pH Miracle Diet Basics

To keep your body alkaline your diet must contain at least 70 to 80 percent alkaline foods. For the most part you will be eating a high amount of raw vegetables, juices and sprouts with smaller portions of whole grains, legumes, tofu, fish, nuts and seeds.

While fruits are a good food for cleansing the body and they do contain a high amount of antioxidants, they are also high in sugar and have an acidic effect. The only fruits that you should consume on a regular basis include lemon, lime and grapefruit because they are alkalizing.

Other foods that should be avoided in the pH Miracle Diet include sugar, refined carbohydrates, dairy products, salt, butter, margarine, meat, eggs, wheat, corn, yeast, mushrooms, vinegar, soy sauce, alcohol and caffeine.

The pH Miracle Diet includes four steps:

  • Step 1: Transition: For twelve weeks you will gradually switch over to an alkaline diet.
  • Step 2: Cleanse: Follow a green juice fast for one week with nutritional supplements and mild natural laxatives. It is preferable that you prepare your own juices but if you don’t own a juicer you can use a concentrated green powder mixed into water.
  • Step 3: Strictly Alkaline: You will eat only alkaline foods for seven weeks with extra supplements including probiotics. You will consume mainly high-water content vegetables, especially green ones, and as much as possible your diet will consist of raw food.
  • Step 4: Maintenance: In the final stage of the pH Miracle Diet, you will eat 70 or 80 percent alkaline foods, while adding in 20 percent of other foods including fish, grains, soy and starchy vegetables.

    My 5 year old son needs to be on an alkaline diet but this one doesn’t seem like it would appeal to a kid. Are there any modifications that would make it easier for me to get him to eat these foods?

    This works very well, if you can stick to it. I lost weight, was more energetic, didn’t suffer gout symptoms I had for over 10 years, even with medication.

    If you’re serious about health, this will work.
