What I loved about this book was the way Mr. Whang explains - in plain English anyone can understand - the chemical and physical science that makes alkaline diets work.
If you're looking to understand the science behind alkaline diets, this book is a must-read.
Mr. Whang doesn't approach alkaline balance like most other authors who just tell you to eat this and not eat that. In the first few chapters of the book, he gives the reader the essential understanding of how the human body works - from a chemical perspective. He doesn't make assumptions or rely on annectodal data - he shows the reader how the laws of physics and chemistry affect the chemical reactions inside the human body.
Armed with this information, he then tells the reader how the basic elements of foods (minerals, calcium, phosphorus, etc.) affect the pH of the body. This is the key understanding when it comes to figuring out which foods are acidifying and which ones are alkalizing.
His approach is very straight forward, clear, and matter-of-fact.
He then goes on to show how an acidic lifestyle and diet affects the body, how the body tries to maintain its chemical integrity, and what the resulting strain does, in terms of reactions, diseases, etc.
Mr. Whang's description of diseases and how they come to be is also very interesting. He goes through a long list of diseases, gives specific reasons for each of them (from an alkaline diet point of view) and tells the reader how to reverse them.Read more ›
I read the book, and have read many other books on acid/alkaline balance in the body. This book I found very informative and right on target, while some of the others I have read beat around the bush. It is interesting what the author states about how acids form after eating even the healthiest foods. When we can't eliminate these acids, is when disease starts to proliferate.
I have been using Alkalife water alkalizing drops and I Must say that it is probably the #1 nutritional supplement I have ever used. It's amazing how good you can feel after only using 2 drops of the stuff in a glass of water. I had been chronically constipated for years, and that alkalized water helps move my bowels better than cascara sagrada, which is an herbal laxative.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is ill, or looking to improve their health.
The one thing Mr. Whang does not mention is that your water may not work well in an ionizer if it has too much salt or is too hard. Hardness over 200 ppm can give trouble - the solution is to use bottled water with a stand-alone unit and thus get all the benefits of alkaline and acidic water. Also as noted by one of the other reviews, adding alkaline drops to the water you drink is a good thing. It isn't as powerful as an Ionizer but sure beats doing nothing for your health.
But good heavens with the introduction of modern, refined and processed foods as well as the various prevalent pollutants that we spill into our environment, the aging process has sped up while degenerative diseases have increased. Now I wouldn't recommend this water as a plethora. Rather it is good to use while making some other corrections to one's diet as well, beginnning with cutting back on the carbonated drinks and other various highly sugar-laced and/or overly processed food stuffs!
I think he has a very original idea with the ionizer and the drops! In France there is the Dr. Kousmine who has also thought and taught along those lines, advising patients to take alkalizing salts when urine pH is too acidic.
I especially appreciated his middle-of-the-road-no-excess philosophy, so important in matters of health, MODERATION being the key word. Let's face it, we wouldn't even be needing this water if we hadn't already broken a few of the rules along the way... But even too much of a good thing can be bad. With that in mind, don't over do it with the basic water... BALANCE being the main goal!
Thanks Mr. Whang for this great and very simple-to-use idea!

Nice read until I the end of the book when I realized it was an advertisement for his product and that Sang is now dead.
