  • If You Value Your Health

    I really love this new article by Dr. Young.

    The only thing I would change is his use of the term lifestyle choices.
    It's not really our choice that tap water is too acidic, or the air we
    breathe, or that dr.'s prescribe things which add to our acidity, or
    that salt is processed which messes it up, or that so much available
    food comes with that already in it.

    From the research I've done on this the #1 way to deal with this is by
    adding a scoop of alkalizing powder to milk, soy milk, whatever once a
    day. Of course there's additional things you can do. Jessica


    In this very revealing and thought-provoking
    presentation, Dr. Young helps us to to take a
    clear-eyed look at how illogical current medical
    thinking is about diagnosis of symptoms, naming
    diseases, and then prescribing drug treatments.
    If you want to know the real "CAUSE" of some
    common dis-ease and disease conditions, read on!

    "Disease or should we say Dis-ease names like cancer,
    diabetes and osteoporosis are misleading and misinform
    patients about dis-ease prevention.

    There is a curious tendency in conventional medicine
    to name a set of symptoms a disease. I was recently
    at a compounding pharmacy having my bone mineral
    density measured to update my health stats. I
    spotted a poster touting a new drug for osteoporosis.
    It was written by a drug company and it said
    exactly this: 'Osteoporosis is a disease that causes
    weak and fragile bones.' Then, the poster went on to
    say that you need a particular drug to counteract this

    Yet the language is all backwards. Osteoporosis isn't
    a disease that causes weak bones, osteoporosis is
    the name given to a diagnosis of weak bones. In other
    words, the weak bones are the result of excess acidity,
    and then the diagnosis of osteoporosis followed.

    The drug poster makes it sound like osteoporosis
    strikes first, and then you get weak bones. The
    cause and effect is all backwards. And that's
    how drug companies want people to think about
    diseases and symptoms: first you 'get' the dis-ease,
    and then you are 'diagnosed' just in time to take
    a new drug for the rest of your life.

    But it's all an illuision. There is no such
    disease as osteoporosis. It's just a made-up name
    given to a pattern of symptoms that indicates
    you are over-acid which causes your bones to
    become fragile.

    As another example, when a person follows an
    unhealthy lifestyle that results in a symptom
    such as high blood pressure, that symptom is
    actually being assumed to be a disease all by
    itself and it will be given a disease name.
    What disease? The dis-ease is, of course,
    'hypertension' or 'high blood pressure.'
    Doctors throw this phrase around as if it
    were an actual dis-ease and not merely
    descriptive of patient physiology.

    This may all seem silly, right? But there's
    actually a very important point to all this.

    When we look at symptoms and give them disease
    names, we automatically distort the selection
    of available treatments for such a dis-ease.
    If the dis-ease is, by itself, hypercholesterolemi a
    or high cholesterol, then the cure for the dis-ease
    must be nothing other than lowering the high
    cholesterol. And that's how we end up with all
    these pharmaceuticals treating high cholesterol
    in order to 'prevent' this dis-ease and lower
    the levels of LDL cholesterol in the human patient.

    By lowering only the cholesterol, the doctor can
    rest assured that he is, in fact, treating this
    'disease,' since the definition of this 'disease'
    is hypercholesterolemi a or high cholesterol and
    nothing else.

    But there is a fatal flaw in this approach to
    disease treatment: the symptom is not the cause
    of the dis-ease. There is another cause, and
    this deeper cause is routinely ignored by
    conventional medicine, doctors, drug companies,
    and even patients.

    Let's take a closer look at hypertension or
    high blood pressure. What actually causes high
    blood pressure? Many doctors would say high
    blood pressure is caused by a specific, measurable
    interaction between circulating chemicals in the
    human body. Thus, the ill-behaved chemical
    compounds are the cause of the high blood pressure,
    and therefore the solution is to regulate these
    chemicals. That's exactly what pharmaceuticals
    do -- they attempt to manipulate the chemicals
    in the body to adjust the symptoms of high blood
    pressure. Thus, they only treat the symptoms,
    not the root cause.

    Or take a look at high cholesterol. The conventional
    medicine approach says that high cholesterol is
    caused by a chemical imbalance in the liver, which
    is the organ that produces cholesterol. Thus the
    treatment for high cholesterol is a prescription
    drug that inhibits the liver's production of
    cholesterol (statin drugs). Upon taking these
    drugs, the high cholesterol (the 'disease')
    is regulated, but what was causing the liver to
    overproduce cholesterol in the first place?
    That causative factor remains ignored.

    The root cause of high cholesterol, as it turns
    out, is primarily an over acidic lifestyle and
    diet. A person lives an acidic life or who eats
    foods that are acidic will inevitably cause the
    body to go into preservation mode and produce more
    cholesterol to neutralize the excess acid thus
    showing the symptoms of this so-called dis-ease
    of high cholesterol. Its simple cause and effect.
    Eat the wrong foods and don't exercise, and you'll
    produce too much acid which will cause the body to
    release cholesterol from the liver to bind up
    that acid which can be detected and diagnosed by
    conventional medical procedures. You see it is
    not the cholesterol that is bad it is the acid
    producing food we eat and the lack of exercise
    that is bad. Reduce the acid producing foods
    like beef, chicken, pork, dairy, coffee, tea,
    soda pops, etc., and start exercising every day
    and you will reduce the protective cholesterol
    that is saving your life from acids that are
    not being elimnated from an acidic lifestyle
    and diet.

    Yet the root cause of all this is actually poor
    lifestyle and food choice, not some bizarre
    behavior by the liver. If the disease were to
    be accurately named, then, it would be called
    Acidic Lifestyle and Food Choice Dis-Ease, or
    simply ALFCD.

    ALFCD would be a far more accurate name that
    would make sense to people. If it's an acidic
    lifestyle and foods choice dis-ease, then it
    seems that the obvious solution to the dis-ease
    would be to choose a lifestyle and foods that
    aren't so acidic. Of course that may be a bit
    of simplification since you have to distinguish
    between healthy alkaline lifestyles and foods
    and unhealthy acidic lifestyle and foods. But
    at least the name ALFCD gives clients or patients
    a better idea of what's actually going on rather
    than naming the dis-ease after a symptom, such
    as high cholesterol. You see, the symptom is not
    the dis-ease, but conventional medicine insists
    on calling the symptom the dis-ease because that
    way it can treat the symptom and claim success
    without actually addressing the underlying cause,
    which remains a mystery to modern medicine.

    But let's move on to some other dis-eases so you
    get a clearer picture of how this actually works.
    Another dis-ease that's caused by poor lifestyle
    and acidic food choice is diabetes. Type 2
    diabetes is the natural physiological and metabolic
    result of a person consuming refined carbohydrates
    and added sugars in large quantities, undigested
    proteins from beef, chicken, and pork without
    engaging in regular physical exercise that would
    compensate for such dietary practices.

    The name 'diabetes' is meaningless to the average
    person. The disease should be called Excessive Acid
    Dis-Ease, or EAD. If it were called Excessive Acid
    Dis-ease, the solution to it would be rather apparent;
    simply eat less sugar, eliminate all animal proteins,
    eggs, dairy, drink fewer soft drinks, exercise and so
    on. But of course that would be far too simple for
    the medical community, so the dis-ease must be given
    a complex name such as diabetes that puts its
    solution out of reach of the average patient.

    Keep your mind on the aether

    Another dis-ease that is named after its symptom
    is cancer. In fact, to this day, most doctors and
    many patients still believe that cancer is a physical
    thing: a tumor. In reality, a tumor is the solution
    of cancer, not its cause. A tumor is simply a
    physical manifestation of bound up acidic cells
    so they do not spoil other healthy cells. The
    tumor is the solution to cells damaged by acids
    not the problem. The truth is cancer is not a
    cell but an acidic liquid. When a person 'has
    cancer,' what they really have is cancerous tissues
    or latent tissue acidosis. They are absorbing
    their own acidic urine. It would be a far better
    named for the dis-ease: Cancerous Tisssue Dis-Ease(CTD)
    or Latent Tissue Acidosis or LTA.

    If cancer were actually called Latent Tissue Acidosis,
    it would seem ridiculous to try to cure cancer by
    cutting out tumors through surgery and by destroying
    the immune system with chemotherapy. And yet these
    are precisely the most popular treatments for cancer
    offered by conventional medicine. These treatments
    do absolutely nothing to support the patient's
    immune system and prevent the build up of acids
    in the tissues. That's exactly why most people who
    undergo chemotherapy or the removal of tumors through
    surgical procedures end up with yet more cancer a few
    months or a few years later. It's also another reason
    why survival rates of cancer have barely budged over
    the last twenty years. (In other words, conventional
    medicine's treatments for cancer simply don't work.)
    The main reason is current medical science wrongly
    perceives cancer as a cell when in reality cancer
    is an acidic liquid, like lactic acid.

    This whole situation stems from the fact that the
    dis-ease is misnamed. It isn't cancer, it isn't a
    tumor and it certainly isn't a dis-ease caused by
    having too strong of an immune system that needs
    to be destroyed through chemotherapy. It is simply
    latent tissue acidosis. And if it were called
    latent tissue acidosis dis-ease or urine in the
    tissues dis-ease, the effective treatment for
    cancer would be apparent.

    The kidneys are responsible for eliminating acids
    out of the blood and recycling alkalinity back into
    the blood. When we have an over-acidic lifestyle
    and diet this puts stress on the kidneys which
    can cause them to breakdown. The result is kidney
    dis-ease caused by circulatory acids. If acids
    are not eliminated out of the blood they will
    then be thrown out into the tissues leading to
    latent tissue acidosis and eventual cancerous
    tissue. Medical science uses dialysis to purify
    the blood from acidity and prevent latent tissue
    acidosis. If one will stop their acidic lifestyle
    and diet and begin to alkalize the blood and
    tissues this will support the kidneys and
    prevent kidney disease and the need for

    There are many other dis-eases that are given
    misleading names by western medicine. But if you
    look around the world and take a look at how
    dis-eases are named elsewhere, you will find
    many countries have dis-ease names that actually
    make sense.

    For example, in Chinese medicine, Alzheimer's
    dis-ease is given a name that means, when
    translated, 'feeble mind disease.' In Chinese
    medicine, the name of the dis-ease more accurately
    describes the actual cause of the dis-ease which
    is caused by acids or urine on the brain, whereas
    in western medicine, the name of the dis-ease
    seems to be intended to obscure the root cause
    of the dis-ease, thereby making all dis-eases
    sound far more complex and mysterious than they
    really are.

    This is one way in which doctors and practitioners
    of western medicine keep medical treatments out
    of the reach of the average citizen. Because,
    by God, they sure don't want people thinking for
    themselves about the causes of dis-ease!

    By creating a whole new vocabulary for medical
    conditions, they can speak their own secret
    language and make sure that people who aren't
    schooled in medicine don't understand what
    they're saying. That's a shame, because the
    treatments and cures for virtually all chronic
    dis-eases are actually quite simple and can be
    described in plain language, such as making
    different alkaline food choices, getting more
    natural sunlight, drinking more alkaline water,
    engaging in regular physical exercise, avoiding
    specific acidic foods, supplementing our diet
    with green foods and green drinks and alkalizing
    nutritional supplements and so on.

    See, western medicine prefers to describe
    dis-eases in terms of chemistry. When you're
    depressed, you aren't suffering from a lack of
    natural sunlight; you are suffering from a 'brain
    chemistry imbalance' that can only be regulated,
    they claim, by ingesting toxic chemicals to alter
    your brain chemistry. When your bones are brittle,
    it's not acidic brittle bones dis-ease; it's
    called osteoporosis, something that sounds very
    technical and complicated. And to treat it, western
    doctors and physicians will give you prescriptions
    for expensive drugs that somehow claim to make
    your bones less brittle. But in fact, the real
    treatment for this can be described in plain
    language once again: regular physical exercise,
    vitamin D supplementation, mineral supplements
    that include calcium and strontium, natural sunlight,
    and avoidance of acidic foods such as soft drinks,
    white flour and added sugars.

    In fact, virtually every dis-ease that's prominent
    in modern society -- diabetes, cancer, heart
    disease, osteoporosis, clinical depression,
    irritable bowel syndrome and so on -- can be
    easily described in plain language without
    using complex terms at all. These dis-eases
    are simply misnamed. And I believe that they
    are intentionally misnamed to put the jargon
    out of reach of everyday citizens. As a result,
    there's a great deal of arrogance in the language
    of western medicine, and this arrogance furthers
    the language of separation. Separation never
    results in healing. In order to effect healing,
    we must bring together the language of healers
    and patients using plain language that real people
    understand and that real people can act upon.

    We need to start describing dis-eases in terms
    of their root causes, not in terms of their arcane,
    biochemical actions. When someone suffers from
    seasonal affective disorder or clinical depression,
    for example, let's call it what it is: Sunlight
    Deficiency Disorder. To treat it, the person simply
    needs to get more sunlight. This isn't rocket science,
    it's not complex, and it doesn't require a

    If someone is suffering from osteoporosis, let's
    get realistic about the words we use to describe
    the condition: it's really Acidic Bones Dis-ease.
    And it should be treated with things that will
    enhance bone density, such as nutrition, physical
    exercise and avoidance of acidic foods and drinks
    that strip away bone mass from the human body to
    neutralize the excess acids in the blood and

    All of this information, of course, is rather
    shocking to old-school doctors and practitioners
    of western medicine, and the bigger their egos
    are, the more they hate the idea of naming dis-eases
    in plain language that patients can actually
    comprehend. That's because if the simple truths
    about dis-eases and their causes were known,
    health would be more readily available to everyday
    people, and that would lessen the importance of
    physicians and medical researchers.

    There's a great deal of ego invested in the medical
    community, and they sure don't want to make sound
    health attainable to the average person without
    their expert advice. Many Doctors want to serve
    as the translators of 'truth' and will balk at
    any attempts to educate the public to either practice
    medicine on their own.

    But in reality, health (and a connection with
    spirit) is attainable by every single person.
    Health is easy, it is straightforward, it is direct
    and, for the most part, it is available free of
    charge. A personal connection with our Creator is
    the same if we ask humbly in prayer for a
    relationship with Him, and guidance.

    Don't believe the names of dis-eases given to you
    by your doctor. Those names are designed to obscure,
    not to inform. They are designed to separate you
    from self-healing, not to put you in touch with your
    own inner healer. And thus, they are nothing more
    than bad medicine masquerading as modern medical

        You just have to realize that prescriptions are if anything to be used short term.

        Their value is that they can do intricate things to the body "on demand" but they always "rob Peter to pay Paul" because they are acidic.

        The acid thing is the "real disease."

        It's common knowledge our rain is acid and our oceans are too acid. If acid rain affects buildings you betta believe it affects us living things

        To summarize this article he is tracing acidity to pretty much every disease people have trouble with in our society today.

        The best way I have found to deal with this is in my first post in this thread.

              In relation to pH, moderate exercise would be said to alkalize while intense exercise could cause acidity, like when you feel muscle burn.

              Our body uses different pH throughout but without the right fuel it cannot correct and we need to correct our pH due to the environmental conditions we happen to live in - too acidic.

              A mineral powder like the one I mentioned in my first post is one dr.'s (Dr. Wolfgang Auer) opinion of a very efficient way to correct pH. I like it too because I get sick of pills and its taste is just a mild vanilla. There are tons of alkalizing products on the market you might like for whatever reason, and raw foods are definitely a good thing.

              I think it's mainly minerals that are lacking due to the processing of mainstream foods.
