I think a good dose of skepticism is warranted with all health claims...Doctors and pharmaceutical companies included. I approached Dr. Young's work with a healthy dose of skepticism, but found that his approach lacked any suggestions that would be considered harmful (unlike the dangerous Adkins diet)...and that the best test was experiential...so I tried it for myself. I lost about 10lbs in one week, while never feeling hungry, and with no increased exercise. In addition my energy level skyrocketed and remained constant throughout the day! Although I did not have any particular health concerns to address, other than fluctuating energy level and a little extra weight...so my story is not miraculous...but certainly positive.

What is miraculous is my father's story...he had been 30-40 lbs overweight, suffered from a severe case of gout and arthritis to the point he could barely walk at times. He also had a brain tumor that impaired his speech had caused him to go blind in his left eye...which the surgeon said was a permanent loss and definitely not reversible with any know treatment. Upon beginning the program my father only made some minor changes...eliminating acidic liquids like coffee, soda and sugary drinks...and replacing them with purified alkaline water...a gallon a day. Within a month he had lost 30lbs, and had completely cured his gout and arthritis! He looked and moved like he was 15 years younger! With this miraculous success, he agreed to increase the amount of raw greens in his diet and reduce meat, and other acidic foods like sweets...this was very difficult for him to do...but he plodded forward and supplemented his diet with a green drink and an alkaline salt's drink as well. He also quit drinking and smoking at this time. In January of 2009 we went to visit Dr.

A friend told me about this book when I was in Peru and having trouble with my stomach. I was on 7 or 8 perscription drugs and about as many supplements. I read this book and set out to follow Dr. Young's instructions. After 1-2 months I was off all of my medications. I had an eye doctor appointment after 3 months and he could find no sign of the Glaucoma I had been on medication for for over 4 years. I have been on this way of life for over a year now and have dropped over 45 pounds and am now at 175 - 180lbs (down from 223lbs when I started). It was a struggle at first to find new foods to eat but the benefits kept me on track. I am vegan now. Though the book doesn't call for that I found it fits my new lifestyle better. Thank you Dr. Young!!

I am now re-reading this book. From the first read I wanted to get the relevant information fast. Now I am studying it. I also read reviews and have found little that can refute the basic premise and technical opinions. There is some difference of opinion on cell formation but I don't think its significant, if Young is wrong, well no one is perfect. Nutrition as we know it, is not exact nor is it the same for everyone. We all vary slightly. To those whom have given more negative reviews I would ask, what did you expect?. Do not expect a glove fit of any nutrition book. I have recently been dignosed Diabetic. I have literally eaten tons of red meat and sugar, and both parents have died relatively young (father 60/mother 68 diabetic with heart complications). I thought I knew something about nutrition but my new quest, has brought me to this book and others. The PH Miracle is incredible and credible thanks to Dr. Young. Yes he sells suppliments too but I did not feel it was pushy and he offers multiple sources. I don't follow any recipe nor this book to the letter. I am following it fairly close because it aligns to what I believe is the best human diet, largely raw vegtibles and fruits, nuts, sprouts etc.., good water. This although radical I find palatable. Lots of salad, etc.. I love the subtle flavor now that I'm off sugar and cafine. Keep in mind I ate tons of red meats, chocolate, cheeses, you name it... I have lost 35 pounds with NO HUNGER, blood sugar well in the normal range most of the time, no more headaches, bloating, constant hunger,gas, frequency of urination, lethargy, shortness of breath. I'm full of energy, mind is clearer. I feel better than I can ever remember feeling. Make of this book what suits you. I hope it will at least convince you to purge your body of processed foods.Read more ›

Where does one start with pH miracle?

As someone who has studied biochemistry and natural medicine for twenty plus years (and having grown up in health food stores my parents owned) I can say that this book is probably one of the worst books in the entire health food industry. So many glaring errors are immediately obvious to anyone who has spent even one hour in a biology or chemistry class.

I am writing this review because it concerns me how many people start up this diet and start feeling genuinely better --and then interpret this improvement in their health as PROOF that all "Dr." Young's theories are spot on. It is true that people will experience healing when switching from processed foods to a diet of heavy more greens and vegetables. However must of the book is totally UN-scientific drivel presented in a pseudo-scientific way, and of course most people reading it know very little about cell biology or biochemistry so they're very easily bamboozled.

The problem is that beyond this basic change from junk food to fruits & veggies the book has almost no value. Worse than that really, one will finish the book and know LESS about nutrition then when they started and will have to embark on a journey to correct the vast inaccuracies in the book. Truly I felt like it was brain damage while reading pH Miracle, like I had to "unlearn" years of biology and chemistry to even follow his tortured logic.

Here is an example: On page 55 "Dr." Young wrote this verbatim in his sidebar on probiotics and enzymes:

"Probiotics are transformations of what used to be healthy cells. There is no such thing as 'friendly' or 'healthy' bacteria. The presence of bacteria is evidence of an acidic environment.
