"95 percent of all sickness and disease is caused by what you eat, what you drink and what you think. 5 percent of all sickness and disease is genetic and triggered by what you eat, what you drink and what you think. Therefore, 100 percent of ALL sickness and disease is caused by what you eat, what you drink and what you think."

We all have satiety signals within our bodies that help us know when we’ve consumed enough energy for our body’s needs. With extreme dieting and acidic diets, we can mess up those satiety signals. If this happens, we may begin to receive inaccurate hunger signals that cause us to snack and munch, and feel like we need more food than necessary in order to feel full. This can lead to chronic hunger signals that zap our energy and cause us to gain weight. Fortunately, we can get these signals under control with simple changes in diet.
 
Here are 4 steps to eliminate inaccurate hunger signals:
 

#1 Control Blood Sugar


Two major players in our satiety signals are metabolic hormones insulin and leptin. These two are closely intertwined. We have a lot of control over these hormones by balancing our blood sugar levels through the foods we eat and our lifestyle habits. To balance blood sugar:
 

  • Eliminate all processed foods
  • Eliminate wheat and grains
  • Focus on whole foods such as vegetables, nuts, and seeds
  • Consume healthy fat at every meal
  • Eliminate sugar intake – even natural sugars like honey

 

#2 Cleanse the Bowels


Inaccurate hunger signals can come when we aren’t able to fully absorb the nutrition we consume. We need to continually cleanse the bowels to eliminate wastes like plaque buildup. Once the buildup is removed, we can enjoy renewed energy with the improvement of nutrient uptake of the foods we eat.
 
We recommend pHlush by pH Miracle. This unique pH formulation is rich in oxygen, magnesium, and other powerful ingredients that make an excellent cleanser for your alimentary canal. It’s gentle and non-habit forming.
 

#3 Improve Oxidation of Foods


While consuming the right foods and liquids is critical in obtaining optimal health, the nutrient given the highest priority by the body is oxygen. Oxygen is essential to the life sustaining process of full oxidation–the optimum burning of our food for satiety and energy.
 
We recommend 
Activated Oxygen by pH Miracle. This magnesium peroxide compound, with oxygen enhancement, is designed to release oxygen to purify and energize all the cells in the body. This is a fascinating product that can be instrumental in detoxifying the entire body and boosting energy levels.
 

#4 Increase Greens


Green foods contain a number of vitamins, minerals, proteins, electrons, chlorophyll and more, but they are actually catalysts that support chemical chain reactions within the body. Getting an abundance of green vegetables has a balancing effect on the entire body, and provides long-lasting energy that naturally reduces inaccurate hunger signals.
 
We recommend Doc Broc’s SuperGreens and Doc Broc’s SuerGreens Capsules. This is the optimal way to get your greens—the raw materials your body needs to power your cells and therefore your entire body—in a convenient and great tasting green drink mix. It’s smooth and mild-flavored.
 
Follow these 4 steps to eliminate inaccurate hunger signals, and then share what you’ve accomplished with others. You can also leave a product review at phmlife.com to inspire others. Pay forward the gift of natural healing to someone today!
 
To your health and happiness!

Questions on the Science of pH

BY Dr. ROBERT O. YOUNG
For more on the pH and Alkaline Diet, visit www.phmiracleliving.com

QUESTION: HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO MAINTAIN AN ALKALINE PH IN OUR BLOOD, SALIVA, URINE AND SWEAT?
Dr. Young: Maintaining the alkaline pH of the saliva, urine, tears, sweat and blood is critical. Testing the body fluid pH is the most important daily measurement anyone can do to maintain health and fitness and to PREVENT ALL sickness and disease. The beauty of the pH test is that you don’t need to go to a doctor to do it. You can do it yourself. You can actually become your own doctor and manage your own health with this simple test. And if you’ll remember this rule—if you maintain the saliva and the urine pH, ideally at 7.2 or above, you will never get sick. That’s right you will NEVER get sick! The key is to manage the alkaline design of the body fluids. But, most people on the planet have a urine or saliva pH in the six or fives. They don’t manage their pH. People take better care of their aquariums, swimming pools, or spas, than their own internal body fluids. Managing the pH of your body fluids is simple. All you do is take some pHydrion paper or litmus paper, moisten it with saliva and urine and then check the color on the color-coded chart. The chart measures the pH of saliva, urine, sweat, and tears in 5.0 to 8.5 increments. Ideally, you want your saliva, urine, sweat and tears to measure at least 7.2 or b etter. Managing you body fluid pH with an alkaline lifestyle and diet is the healthiest advice I could give anyone on this planet. It is inexpensive. It is simple, and it works.

Question: WHEN THESE BODY FLUIDS STAY ACIDIC FOR DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS OR YEARS, WHAT HAPPENS TO HUMAN HEALTH?
Dr. Young: What happens to human health when you stay in the acidic zone? You get sick, tired and fat. And, if you don’t get fat, you die. When you are underweight you are living on your own body tissue. Your body is making red blood cells out of body cells. Why? Because you have damaged the root system of your small intestine with acidic food, drink, enzymes, probiotics, antibiotics and other acidic drugs. You are constantly breaking down your own body cells in order to maintain the level of red blood cells at 5 million red blood cells per cubic millimeter. In order to build muscle and bones you have to have healthy strong red blood cells. In order to have healthy strong red blood cells you have to have a healthy alkaline root system or intestinal villi with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. You build healthy blood with electron-rich green alkaline foods and drinks. When you are constantly bombarding your internal environment with acidic foods and drinks and damaging your intestinal villi, you set the stage for all sickness and dis-ease.

Question: WHEN THESE LIQUIDS ARE ACIDIC, ARE THEY BY NATURE TAKING ELECTRONS AWAY CAUSING OXIDATION AND FORMATION OF FREE RADICALS?
Dr. Young: When we ingest any acidic food or drink, our body immediately reacts to neutralize or buffer the acid. For example, let’s say you drink a glass of orange juice. But before drinking the orange juice you test the pH of your saliva. After drinking the orange juice you test your saliva pH again. You would think that drinking orange juice, which has a pH between 2.5 to 3 and is highly acidic, would actually cause the pH of your saliva to go down. But it does not. The saliva pH goes up higher then when you first tested the pH. The pH of the saliva should test out over 8. What is happening is the salivary glands are releasing sodium bicarbonate to buffer the acids of the orange juice. This is why the saliva pH goes up. If the saliva pH does not go up this indicates that your alkaline reserves are deficient. All forms of sugar are acidic to the body. Even fruit sugars are acidic. When the body is trying to neutralize an acid, it has to secrete an alkaline buffer to do so. When you ingest sugar or you drink a glass of fresh orange juice, or you take any acidic food in the mouth, the pH will sharply go up to neutralize the acid from that food. This is done to protect the alkaline design of the body. When you start using up your alkaline reserves and you do not replace those reserves with alkaline foods and drinks, you begin to compromise other parts of the body. Especially if, the daily diet is loaded with acidic foods and drinks. When the alkaline reserves are deficient and the diet is also deficient in foods or drinks that will build up those alkaline reserves the body starts pulling alkaline minerals from the bones and muscles. This causes deficiencies of the bones and muscles. When your blood is compromised from a deficiency of alkaline reserves, such as sodium bicarbonate or the elements to make sodium bicarbonate, the body will begin pulling calcium from the bones and/or magnesium from the muscles to maintain the alkalinity of the blood plasma. This is when you will start experiencing the deficiencies of alkalinity that are expressed in the seven stages of acidosis, going from sensitivities all the way up to degeneration.

Question: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE POSITIVE THINGS THAT WOULD OCCUR IF ALL OF THESE BODY FLUIDS ARE ALKALINE?
Dr. Young: When you are alkalized you are energized. And when you are energized you feel better and think better. You have sustainable energy when you are alkalized. When you eat and drink alkaline you are making energy deposits to your body, like a bank account. You are making alkaline deposits to your energy bank account and to your alkaline reserves or energy savings account. The positive benefits of being alkaline are incredible health, energy, fitness, mental clarity and vitality.

Question: WE’RE GOING TO USE YOUR TERM—WHY IS THE "NEW BIOLOGY™” SO IMPORTANT?
Dr. Young: The New Biology™ is important because it is based on a foundational health principal, that the human body is alkaline by design, but every function of the body is acidic. So every disease is nothing more than the body trying to maintain its alkaline design. So when we’re talking about bone disease, the body is taking alkalinity from the bones to maintain the alkalinity of the blood, which is the most important organ of the body. Once the blood becomes acidic, you will die. A drop from the normal blood pH of 7.365 to 6.9 will cause one to go into a coma and then die. The blood pH has a very narrow range for health and vitality. The normal healthy blood pH is at 7.365. If the blood pH drops down to 7.2, you start feeling very sick and at 6.9 you are dead. So the body will do everything it can to maintain the alkaline integrity of the blood, at the expense of all other organs and organ systems. Once we understand the foundational theory of the New Biology™, and I’ll repeat it again: the human organism is alkaline by design, although acidic by function. So breathing is acidic. Thinking is acidic. Eating is acidic. Metabolism is acidic. The breakdown of the food you eat is acidic. Everything you eat is acidic to a lesser or greater degree. The body has to protect itself. The body protects itself with the alkaline buffering system, which is currently NOT understood by medical savants. Your body is looking for energy in the form of electrons or electron-rich foods and drinks. Health is all about energy. The New Biology™ teaches us the foundational principles of health, fitness and energy and how to maintain that health, fitness and energy, for a lifetime, free from ALL sickness and disease.

Question: FOR THE BODY’S IMMUNE SYSTEM TO WORK PROPERLY IS ALKALINITY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO MONITOR?
Dr. Young: True immunity from ALL sickness and disease comes from alkalinity not from white blood cells. We were all taught in human biology that immunity is comes from white blood cells protecting us from some invading germ or virus. White blood cells provide NO immunity. White blood cells do not destroy germs. White blood cells are glorified janitors that swim around in our blood and lymphatic plasma picking up the garbage we create from an acidic lifestyle and diet. White blood cells are NOT soldiers, destroying some invading germ coming in from the outside world that would make us sick. True immunity comes to each of us by maintaining the alkaline fluids of the body. That is where true immunity is found. The first line of defense against sickness and disease is an alkaline internal environment. As soon as you put something acidic into your mind, into your mouth, into your lungs, your alkaline buffering system is engaged to neutralizing or buffer any acidic food, drink, or thought that might be present. That’s true immunity. It is found in the alkaline reserves for your body. When you have an alkaline lifestyle and diet you are able to defend off environmental, dietary or metabolic acids that would make you sick, tired and/or fat. Germs DO NOT cause disease. Acids cause pain, sickness and disease. There is a simple way to understand this principal. Let’s compare our bodies to an automobile. When you start your car, the car begins using energy. As the car uses energy is creates an acidic waste product called carbon monoxide. When you turn the car off you stop producing this acid. If you start the car again and stuff a few socks or a potato in the tailpipe the car will die from carbon monoxide acidosis. If you were to stop eliminating your own acidic waste products through urination, perspiration, defecation or respiration, like the car, you would die too. The body has a way of protecting itself from excess acidity. When dietary and/or metabolic acids are not properly eliminated they get parked on your hips, thighs, buttocks, waistline, breast and brain. The body does this to protect and preserve the organs and organ systems that sustain life. Your best immunity, to protect your body from ALL sickness and disease DOES NOT come from vaccination or medication. True immunity comes from protecting the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. Once again, white blood cells, including neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, T and B-cells help to maintain cleanliness, and in reality are just the janitors of your body fluids like an automatic pool sweep. You can support your white blood cells with an electron-rich alkaline lifestyle and diet.

Question: DO BACTERIA, VIRUSES, FUNGUS, YEAST, GROW EASILY IN AN ACIDIC BODY?
Dr. Young: Bacteria and yeast are biological transformations of what used to be organized matter from healthy body cells. You know if you leave food in the back of the refrigerator, that it will spoil. And, if you leave it long enough it will give birth to first bacteria, then yeast and finally mold. You know that food is not infected from the outside world, but is spoiling from the inside out. Bacteria, yeast and mold are nothing more than a biological transformation of matter. You can accept this. But for some reason, science has adopted a medical philosophy or theory that somehow germs are species-specific, as if they're individual like a cat or a dog. There is nothing special about a virus or bacteria. A virus is nothing more than a smaller bacterial form, from disorganizing or transforming matter. In reality, what I have discovered, through my work, is a virus, is many times just crystallized acids. When you look at bacteria under the microscope, what you are looking at are fragments of what used to be a brain cell or a bone cell or blood cell. And, yeast is just another transformation or evolution, very similar to looking at a caterpillar transforming later into a beautiful butterfly. You accept the reality that the butterfly, use to be a different form—it use to be a caterpillar and now is a beautiful butterfly. And yet this idea of attaching some sort of identity to germs has become very popular over the last 150 years. And the whole focus of medical science has been trying to figure out how to kill the virus, bacteria, yeast or mold. And yet, in reality, the germ is nothing more than a transformation of matter. You cannot kill matter you can only change matter. Because matter cannot be created nor can it be destroyed; it can only change its former function. So therefore, bacteria, yeast and mold is nothing more than a biological transformation of matter that has taken place because of an environment that has become acidic. When the internal environment becomes acidic, the body or blood cell will change. When you take water and put it in the freezer, it turns to ice. When you take water and put it on the stove, it turns to steam. Nothing is ever lost, and nothing is ever gained. The matter is still there, it just takes on a different form. This is a law of physics. When you see bacteria and yeast in the body, all you are looking at is the transformation of what use to be a body cell, a red blood cell, a white blood cell, or a heart cell, and that bacteria or yeast is the evidence of a compromised internal acidic environment. Germs DO NOT cause disease; they are the expression that the internal environment is acidic. You see, the great germ theory of medical science is a scientific illusion. The Germ is Nothing! The Alkaline Internal Environment is Everything!

Question: WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY FOR SOMEONE TO CHECK AND MAINTAIN THEIR BODY’S PH?
Dr. Young: The easiest way for someone to check and maintain the body fluid pH is to test the urine and saliva.
The best time to test the urine is in the morning, because the morning urine is an expression of what you ate and what you drank and how you lived your life the previous, 24 hours. The morning urine is not a product of the blood; it is a product of the tissues. When you measure your urine, you are measuring the pH of your tissues. If your pH is below the ideal of 7.2, and it measures in the 5’s or 6’s, you are in tissue acidosis. When someone over-exercises they can go into lactic tissue acidosis. Lactic acid from over-exercise is felt in the connective tissues and muscles. When the muscles are sore, that’s the tissues picking up the acid to maintain the alkaline blood pH. The blood has to rid itself of metabolic acids or you would die. So it throws the acid out into the muscle tissues and you feel it as irritation or inflammation. If the lactic acid stays in the tissues, it will spoil the tissue cells, and the body will go into preservation mode. In preservation mode, the body will encapsulate the cells spoiled by lactic acid, and now you have a tumor. The tumor is the solution to stop systemic spoiling or metastasis. When the lymphatic system is healthy it will pull the lactic acid out of the tissues, and eventually you will sweat it out or it will be recycled back into the blood and you will urinate it out. So this is very, very important. So remember, when you are testing the pH of your urine, you are testing the pH of your tissues.
And when you are testing your saliva, you are testing your ability or potential to alkalize your food and drink. So when you’re saliva pH is below 7.2, your potential for alkalizing your food, drink and emotions is less. Your reserves are low. You need to make a deposit to your alkaline bank account. And that would be the same with your urine. When your urine is acidic, you need to start alkalizing. You run the risk of staying within an acidic zone; you run the risk of going through the seven stages of acidosis. Starting with lack of energy to sensitivities to inflammation, and working up to ulceration and degeneration.

Question: SHOULD EVERY DOCTOR, HOSPITAL, NUTRITIONIST, HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL BE USING PHYDRION PAPER TO MONITOR THEIR PATIENTS’ BODY FLUIDS?
Dr. Young: Absolutely, they should be giving pHydrion paper to their patients so they can monitor their tissue pH. Doctors need to educate NOT medicate. My goal is to empower every individual person on the planet to be able to take responsibility for their own health and fitness. I’ve expressed my theory very simply in what I call “the fishbowl” metaphor. The fishbowl metaphor is very simple to understand and it starts out with a question. Here is the question. "If the fish is sick, what would you do? Would you treat the fish or change the water?" If you said change the water you are correct. When you put on your common-sense hat and you ask this question, “if the fish is sick, what would you do? Treat the fish or change that water?” Right off the top of your head, you would say, “Dr. Young, I would change the water.” If you ask the same question to your doctor, what would you expect? “Well, I’d treat the fish.” Because that’s what doctors do. That’s their mindset. But when you realize that every cell in the body is eternal in nature, and would live forever if you would only maintain the correct alkaline pH, you see, there would be no aging of the body. I mean, in a perfect scenario. But, we don’t live in a perfect scenario. Ideally, in the perfect scenario, the life expectancy of the human cell, that makes up all of your organs and tissues are infinite. Every day you either choose to live or you choose to die—either by omission or commission. Either you do it with knowledge or you do it with a lack of knowledge. When you have a lack of knowledge, you live in acidic state and you can end up sick, tired and/or fat. It is critical for me to tell you that, “YES, testing your urine and saliva is th e most important thing one can do to maintain the body in an alkaline state full of health, fitness, vitality, hope, love and peace.” You’ll be surprised at how healthy, energetic and strong you will get, even when everyone around you is getting sick. That just won’t happen to you anymore!

Question: SIR, IF YOU’LL FORGIVE ME. I’VE JUST SPENT TWO DAYS SHOOTING IN FISH STORES. IF THE FISH IS SICK AND THE WATER’S DIRTY, DO YOU GIVE THE FISH A PILL OR DO YOU CHANGE THE WATER?
Dr. Young: If the fish is sick and the water’s dirty, do you give the fish a pill? The answer is definitely not, because that just contributes more to the internal environmental pollution. Taking a pill does not clean up the water. You’ve got to change the water and do it in a way that’s not going to kill the fish or the body cells that make up your tissues and organs. You have to do it in a way that’s going to be healthful and energetic. And, there is a way to do this. The way to do this is with an alkaline lifestyle and diet; I call “pH Miracle Living.”

 

Biblical Alkalization

Or Just How Would You Like to Die?

October 5, 2011

Genesis 1:29-30

King James Version (KJV)

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green [chlorophyll] herb for meat: and it was so.

Health issues are really spiritual issues.

Do you not know that you are God's temple...?

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

As the old saying goes, there are only two things certain in life: death and taxes. It seems that we can't do a whole lot about either of these eventualities. But maybe we can determine how and when we will eventually die?

If so, just how would you like to die? Would you like to go like most people today, in a short lifespan (usually in the 80's) and as a result of medical conditions, problems and disease that make the latter years less than enjoyable (due in part to the drugs and treatments most people subscribe to)?

Or is there a way to have some control over lives and live a full, healthy life... right up to the end? How, and maybe even when, and under what conditions do we want to exit this existence? Let us explore the possibility that we can control our health.

At the bottom of this article are some links to some extensive articles on the subject of biblical vegetarianism. A Google search will produce many more. A quick review of these sites reveals that the subject of biblical vegetarianism is indeed quite extensive for both pro and con points of view.

The purpose of this short article is not to reiterate the research that these sites (and many more) have already produced. Rather, it is to provide a definitive conclusion in light of:

  • Our understanding of mankind's creation and the Garden of Eden.

  • Our scientific knowledge and historical data of the eating habits of various groups and nations.

  • Our understanding of biblical prophecy and our final destination.

Be aware that this controversial issue has been going on among Christians as far back as the original Christian ekklesias (churches,) as revealed in the Bible. 

So, just what can we eat? According to the Bible, we can eat just about anything. The only historical biblical prohibition seems to have been the Old Testament admonition about eating "unclean meats." From our new understanding of the "Law," however, modern day Christians are not bound by that restriction. But before you order that lobster and shrimp combo at your favorite restaurant, be aware that scientific evidence abounds that these particular foods are indeed not healthy and should still be avoided.

But what about all the other meats, fish, dairy, grains, sugar and a whole host of other "acidic" foods? According to the Bible, God says we can eat them, too. God is giving us a choice, just as He is giving us a choice of whether we wish to be in the first resurrection... or the second.

But should we eat acidic foods?

Starting with the plants grown in the Garden of Eden, we find that these foods (the only foods available for Adam and Eve to eat) were mostly alkaline plant foods. While living in the Garden of Eden, they were promised eternal life. Were these foods the key to that promise?

Some time after Adam and Eve were forced out of the Garden of Eden (by God, after they sinned) is when all of the other foods and animal meats were introduced (like the ones we all eat today). Certain death was also proclaimed by God at the time of their expulsion. Is there a correlation there?

Moving on to the New Testament, was Jesus a vegetarian? Some say yes. If He was, why didn't he preach about it? 

The answer is that Jesus didn't come to reveal every last secret of the universe (which He certainly could have.) To have done so, or to have even made an issue of vegetarianism alone, would have seriously distracted people from His main message. As it was, most people didn't accept His message anyway. Would they have given him more credibility if He had said, "And by the way, you all need to change your eating habits..." Probably no one would have listened to him about anything He had to say. It was simply not His mission to address this issue any more than it was to address the issue of the bloodline ruling class of the Roman empire (similar to the ruling class of today)... or a whole host of other controversial subjects. It simply would have been a major distraction.

What about the scientific knowledge that proves that a plant based diet is the one that leads to a long, disease free life? The new movies, Forks Over Knives, and Food Matters (see the trailers above,) provide the scientific proof that some countries (mainly third world nations) and some groups (like the Seventh-Day Adventists,) are significantly healthier than the rest of the (enlightened) world. They simply don't eat the western style diet and are healthier because of it. Apparently the "veggie difference" is also reflected in our attitudes and our overall energy level.

Researcher Dr. Robert O. Young has proven over the last 30 years, through his live blood cell analysis research and his work on treating every kind of disease and health condition by simply changing one's diet to a plant based diet, that the key to good health is in fact an alkalarian diet (meaning one should eat 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic foods.) The evidence is there for those willing to open (and change) their minds. Read his 2015 Thanksgiving article on how healthy eating relates to the biblical principle of love and helping.

And what of the future? Bible prophecies may indicate a vegetarian lifestyle before the end (of this age) comes. This may come about because of necessity, due to the pollution and poisoning of our livestock and fish resources. Or maybe it will be a mass awakening to the benefits of alkaline vegetarianism by the citizens of the world.

When the second coming does occur, the Bible indicates that animals will now all live peaceably, rather than attacking and eating each other as they do now. They will all become vegetarians. And what message will be taught regarding what to eat at that time to those humans alive then? Go kill an innocent wild animal (like maybe a lion, who is now peaceably cohabitating with a lamb), that you could probably (at that time) have in your home as a pet? No, they will be teaching vegetarianism. Or more likely, alkalarianism.

5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. 6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 7 And the cow and the bear shall feed ; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. 9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

Isaiah 11:5-9 (King James Version)

Many do not know this, but most dinosaurs originally ate only plant based foods. Only towards the end of their age did they start to eat other animals... and each other.

God is giving us a choice here. He says we can eat anything. But, the real question is, "How are we glorifying God in this lifetime, and when it is our turn to die?"

In light of our understanding of the history of God's creation of mankind, His plans for the future (both right before and after the second coming,) and based on the scientific knowledge that God has bestowed upon us in this 21st century, it can be safely concluded that the secret to a long, healthy life (where age 70 should be the peak of our achievements,) and one that is free of debilitating disease... is to eat the Garden of Eden diet that God originally intended for us to eat... a plant based, alkaline diet.

The best part of Thanksgiving dinner was sharing this time with my oldest son Adam and his new beautiful wife Somone at the Rancho del Sol in Valley Center, California.

As I think about all my many blessings I am most grateful for the love, support and strength I receive from God, loyal family members and friends who truly care about me.

As the Christmas Holidays approach in 2015, we now find ourselves, as a nation and as a planet, in quite a bit of political, economic, health and environmental disarray. Many of us are looking for ways to make ends meet and cut down on the stress in our lives. So I thought I would address these issues. My guess is that many of you feel some sort of concern about financial issues whether it is the daily budget, dwindling savings, credit card bills, increased health costs, money for college bills, mileage and gas prices for the aging family automobiles, and so on.

Its the same at the Young homestead here at Rancho Del So, in Valley Center, California. Every year I pray for more rain and try to figure out how to save money on the expensive California water we need for thousands of avocado, grapefruit, pomegranate, prisimone, lemon, and lime trees. I am always trying to figure out where to save money so I can use that money to reach more people around the world with a pH Miracle message of health, healing and extraordinary well-being.

If you read my articles on a regular basis, you will know that I am quite positive that following a healthy, organic, alkaline green diet with many raw, green fruit and vegetables will save you money over time. Whether you have 50 more years to live or 25, most medical expenses have traditionally occurred in the later years of life. And those medical expenses can be a thing of the past if you will embraces an alkaline lifestyle an diet.

Once your body is alkaline, and once you have rebuilt your blood with my C.O.W.S. program (Chlorophyll, Oil, Water and Salt), and once the pH of your urine is around 7.4 on a consistent basis, you are well on your way to permanently increased health, energy, fitness and vigor as well as great financial savings.

Remember, the #1 reason for bankruptcy in America for many years has been medical bills. That will not happen to you. I hear from people all the time that pretty much the only reason they visit the doctor anymore is to gloat a bit, to follow-up on some old ailment now in the rear-view mirror, to lecture the poor old besieged doctor on the importance of nutrition in health, or exercise, or to give him/her a copy of The pH Miracle book. By the way, if you write to me and tell me that you really did get your doctor to read The pH Miracle book, I'll send you a free copy to replace the one you gave to your physician. I will also be fascinated to hear your story. In fact, I may share it with everybody in one of my articles or on our pH Miracle Center YouTube channel.

Many people who have been following a balanced pH Miracle alkaline/acid diet for many years tell me about all the different ways they save money. Some people have replaced their health insurance with a combination of self-insurance, accident insurance, a hospital indemnity policy, and disability program. Some people on Medicare have not purchased the supplemental insurance because they have not visited their former family physician for several years and are hoping not to for the rest of their lives. Besides, they tell me, they aren't likely to go the drug route anyway now that they know the cucumber and avocado route.

Many have told me that they have saved money because they no longer have doctor visits, co-pays, pharmaceutical drugs, deductibles, tests, clinic and lab fees, medical gadgets, lost time and sick days, and so on. Not to mention the increased energy, creativity, and productivity.

Now lets talk about stress. About two years ago, I emailed you an article about Mother Theresa whose level of consciousness allowed her to function in love, joy, peace and enlightenment. Many of you said that you enjoyed that article. Such states of mind--whether they are linked to experiences that are primarily sensory, emotional, psychological, intellectual or spiritual--can only be accompanied by an absence of stress at the physiological or body level.

If you read my articles at: www.phoreveryoung.wordpress.com with any consistency, then you know that there is a solid scientific link between the mind and the body, the psychosomatic or the "somatopsychic." It goes both ways.
I started hearing the world psychosomatic at least 40 years ago. The mind can cause the body to suffer and the body can cause the mind to suffer. Therefore, it makes good sense to take care of both.

I have discussed from time to time the importance of minimizing stress in our lives. When our minds are filled with thoughts and feelings that include the negative perceptions and experiences of fear, anger and sadness, we are vulnerable to the creation of excessive bodily acid. Toxic acids are actually secreted from various parts of the body cells directly into the bloodstream when we are in a negative emotional state.

On the other hand, leading a life that includes more experiences in what I might call the love zone can be a challenge. I forget who coined the word love zone, but this state of being includes feelings of affection, joy, compassion, empathy, kindness, happiness and bliss. But living in this zone--you may have noticed--is easier said than done. The World seems so often to pull mightily at the most vulnerable areas of our lives. Our preoccupation with the outer world and things over which we have no control can keep us from entering into those precious moments or hours in the stress-free love zone.

There is one thing in particular that we can do to help us frequent this zone as much as possible. And I will back into this concept with a little story which I enjoy. I call this story, One Thousand Avocados for God. It goes like this:

A plantation owner, somewhat foolishly accustomed to bartering with God, prayed for a good harvest. He pleaded thusly:"Dear God, if You would please bring me a great avocado harvest, as a service I will give You 1,000 avocados from the harvest." God granted him a great harvest. Thus, the plantation owner loaded up a thousand avocados in his wagon and had his foreman deliver them to the temple. Along the way, the foreman was pestered by two little beggar boys who pleaded for an avocado to ward off their hunger. "Shoo, shoo, go away," said the foreman, knowing that the plantation owner had loaded exactly 1,000 avocados.

The hungry little boys ran alongside the wagon and continued to beg. Finally, the hired hand relented and gave each of them an avocado. He thought to himself, who would count all these avocados and know that two are missing from a thousand? But the plantation owner had warned the chief overseer of the temple to count the avocados to make sure that the foreman had not sold some along the way. He found out that two were missing and had been given to beggars and the plantation owner fired the foreman. That night the plantation owner had a dream. In his dream, God came to him and said, I have granted your prayer for a great harvest, but you have not kept your agreement.

The plantation owner pleaded his case, But God, I took the avocados to you just as I said. God replied, Well, I am sorry that you are in error my friend, because so far, I have received only two. I think you can see why I enjoy this story. And it has many implications far beyond the simple notion that Divine Providence and charity are related. In fact, we might say that Divine Providence resonates to charity.

There is a great deal of emerging evidence and a wonderful new area of study which says that there is a human field of energy which is very subtle, yet powerful, pervasive and immortal.There is a field of energy which connects every one of us to every one of us. Some refer to this energy as levels of consciousness--and the study of this energy focuses especially on various states of higher consciousness.

Regardless of our personal level of consciousness, we are not only connected to this field of energy, but we are influencing it just as it influences us in return. There is emerging evidence, both experiential and research, that says that as our level of consciousness rises, our body has an increasing ability or tendency to heal itself. There are increasing numbers of prayer studies that show that healing is affected by prayer.

In Dr. David Hawkins book, Power Vs. Force, he designates and describes our levels of consciousness from low to high levels. In the pathological area, he lists (low to high) shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, and false pride. The ascending corresponding emotions at those lower levels are humiliation, blame, despair, regret, anxiety, craving, hate, and scorn. As we pass from pathological states into higher states of health and well-being, Hawkins designates and defines (low to high) courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace, and enlightenment. The ascending corresponding emotions at these higher levels are affirmation, trust, optimism, forgiveness, understanding, reverence, serenity, bliss and ineffable.

By contemplating upon these two hierarchies of human levels of consciousness and corresponding emotions, you can easily see the beauty that unfolds as we achieve higher and higher levels of consciousness. Higher levels mean less stress, or course, which means less acid in your body. The simple question then becomes, what is it that I can do to help myself achieve an increasing degree of health, happiness and serenity in my own life? As I have written before, a healthy and peaceful lifestyle includes choosing an alkaline and nutritional diet, exercise, rest and relaxation, good company, doing work which we enjoy, body massage, meditation, sincere gratitude, a reverence for all life, and so on. Some will argue that these conditions are difficult to achieve in a world of economic disarray. Just viewing the problems of hunger and homelessness in the world is frightening. In America, we are told that more than a million people are now losing their homes due to mortgage default, fifty-three million are out of work or under-employed, and 80 million are on food stamps. And so, how can we ascend to levels of peace in such a world with so much apparent negativity?

What else is it that we can do to ascend our own levels of consciousness and somehow feel a greater sense of love, the absence of fear, and more acceptance of so many people with whom we seem to have nothing in common, little understanding, a different set of values, and with whom we perceive ourselves to operate from a completely different belief system about the world?How do we come to a sense of peace and diminish our reflexive stress--the same stress that causes acidic reactions in our body--to the many seemingly unacceptable political, economic, unhappy human elements that surround us?

I believe that science will soon confirm what some have known over the millennia. Virtually all Holy Scripture from all the major religions are in accordance with the idea that the highest devotion to God--man's greatest gift to the energy field of the world in which we are all encompassed--is service to mankind. Research into higher consciousness tells us that the energy of loving service is recorded in the universe on into infinity.

Thus, as Thanksgiving comes to an end and Christmas approaches in the problematic year of 2015 and on, one of the greatest stress-releasing gifts we can give to ourselves is to give the gift of service to others.

And nothing fosters charitable feelings like charitable actions. Nothing fosters more the acceptance of other people than lending a helping hand. Nothing will bring forth the peace and wisdom that we need to create within ourselves more than providing service to the poor, the needy, the uneducated, the downtrodden, the sick, and the afflicted. This is what I have dedicated my life to.

Look for service projects in your area and take your family into the World to help others. And over time, nothing will help you to diminish the stress inside your own body more than helping to diminish the stress in those around you. What goes round comes round, and to whatever degree your load of avocados means abundant energy, creativity, intelligence, leadership, money, or time for everyone in the World, I know that you can figure out how to deliver more than just two avocados.

In love and light this Holiday Season,
