No More Meds...No More Fatigue...I Am ALIVE!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone! Why? Because it is the answer to everyone's health issues!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The pH Miracle?

The most memorable moment was an experience shared within the book. It was as if the person was channeling my body and putting into words all the health issues I have suffered with my entire 40+ years of life!

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick and Tess Masters – was your favorite?

My favorite character performed by Tess Masters was of Shelley Young. I felt as if Mrs. Young was sitting right there next to me, holding my hand, and explaining all that could be for me just by transitioning my diet.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The real life experiences really moved me because they are the proof of what the Young's have been saying all these years. And now I'm becoming of them!

Any additional comments?

In the past 4 weeks while listening and applying the things I've heard from this book I have: lost 8 pounds, have not been sleeping all the time, mind is clearer and more positive, have stopped taking all medications and the doctors are amazed at my test results!!! I am finally living my life and enjoying it with such joy and excitement!!! This is a blessing!!!

Mostly Good Advice

Would you try another book from Robert O. Young and Shelley Redford Young and/or Scott Brick and Tess Masters ?

Perhaps, but not a sure thing.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

N/A

Have you listened to any of Scott Brick and Tess Masters ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

N/A

Was The pH Miracle worth the listening time?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

This is not for everyone. If you read other authors (Dr. Fuhrman, for example) mushrooms are one of the best foods you can add to your diet. The Youngs advocate removing them from your diet. When you have experts disagreeing, where do you turn for more information?

Skeptical

The 10 foods to avoid are: diary, meat and shellfish, sugars (including fruits), vinegar, mushrooms and algae, peanuts, corn, fermented food, eggs, and alcohol. Remember the term “COWS” – chlorophyll (green vegetables), oils (good oils), water (alkaline), and salt (sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium mineral salts; not the processed table salt). Skip the first five chapters. It author spends a long time explaining the why for the diet and including testimonies of how others have benefited from it. If you've already purchased the book, you'll probably try the diet and don't need to be persuaded chapter after chapter. I'm skeptical about the diet, which is a specific vegetarian diet. If it was such as a miracle diet, it would be apparent to a lot of people that certain vegetarians don't ever get sick.

Interesting Approach to Understanding the Our Diet

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The Father of Medicine said "Let thy food be thy Medicine" and that is true more than ever with GMO's, Pesticides, Chemicals, Herbicides, and a host of things invading our bodies. With all the medical issues today, looking at what we eat and how our bodies respond is critical to our health. Dr. Young's approach is interesting. Understand our blood chemistry and what changes our blood's chemistry is very controversial but there are other bodies of evidence that this approach could lead us away from the SAD diet we consume today. Dr. Victor A. Marcial-Vega Renowned Oncologist and Medical Researcher--John Hopkins trained did a Clinical Study of Goji reducing the Acidity in the blood. The video of his presentation is amazing; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzV5IxzEZUg I recommend everyone read this book and learn more about how your body works and how it responds to the different foods you put into it. _____________________

Would you recommend The pH Miracle to your friends? Why or why not?

I highly recommend this book as it brings a different perspective on food and diet.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - If I had enough time to sit and listen to this book I would have listened straight through.

Any additional comments?

The two readers made the book more real, alive, and for me gave it a new dimension that kept my interest and added more feeling to the stories of real changes for people who embarked down this process. I find it very interesting that connection between the pH Miracle and the work doctor Max Gerson, M.D. and the Gerson institute has been using for years. The foods are similar but there are major differences in the specific foods one ingests to heal. I also find it very interesting that T. Colin Campbell, an American biochemist who specializes in the effects of nutrition on long-term health, recommends many of the same basic principles of eating healthy organic vegetables, no meat, and no dairy. Is there a connection with eating a vegan diet that is free from chemicals and changing the pH of our body? Can juicing and coffee colonics rid our bodies of poisons? I am on the quest to find out and this book is one I have added to my collection for how to heal thyself and one I found very interesting.

If you really want to be healthy, do this

I found this book when looking for a cure for my cancer-suffering sister about 15 years ago. I knew then that these principles were true and decided that if I were ever to have a life threatening disease, this would be the way to cure it. Recently I have discovered that I may indeed have a life-threatening disease and so revisited this book, this time in audio form. Although I totally believe in the premise, I got so lost in the details that I finally had to give up. Thus, the four-star rating. Who could possibly keep track of all those details, foods and SUPPLEMENTS? However, the takeaway for me is to eat waaaaaay more alkalizing foods and cut the acid down as much as possible. That I can do.

I do believe we can heal ourselves by what we eat and by adopting a healthier overall lifestyle. I know I must. I have lead a very healthy life in large part by following the basic advice from this book until recently when I started eating, for some unexplained reason, a more traditional SAD diet (Standard American Diet). I gained 40 pounds and have had a number of miserable illnesses in that short year. I hope to live at least another 20 years, but I don't want to be sick for one more day. That will have to include healing myself of this current malady, which I fully intend to do, and I know this is the best way to do just that.

When I bought this audio version, I wondered how Robert Young was able to score a master narrator such as Scott Brick to read it. The forward explained it all. The Youngs have helped Mr. Brick cure himself of cancer. Makes sense. We don't want to lose him or anyone like him. Or anyone, not to that miserable disease. I do believe we could eliminate cancer and other horrific diseases from this planet if everyone would follow these guidelines. Sadly, that will never happen.

Step outside the box !

Not only do I recommend the audiobook I also purchased the book and would almost buy dido copies for my friends if I had the money! not only can I sit back and listen over and over I can use the book as a quick reference for the great food combinations. The informational content and easy listening voices kept me wanting to know more. I can only lift a few lbs. which made the audiobook a Godsend. When I read books I seem to fall asleep and lose interest and that is why the audiobook is so helpful. Either way it was money well spent.

The True Biology that h3lped mr Save my life in 3

"The pH Miracle" by PHd Microbiologist Dr Robert Young that helped me reverse Chronic Fatigue, OBS, Immune Deficiency and Colon Cancer in 1996 and my father and I helped him translate French Microbiologist Antoine Beauchamp research on Pleomorphism and taking care of our inner environment now called the Microbiome, vs his rival Louie Pasteur who's Germ theory concerned more with outside pathogens like viruses that he himself admitted on his deathbed was a false theory. But the AMA medical education followed Pasteur's Germ theory and never studied the True Biology. This is amazing and has helped 10s of 1000s of us stay healthy.

Quackery

After listening to a few questionable scientific facts, I researched a little about the author. Apparently, Dr. Young's credentials are and he is currently under arrest. Pseudo science ! Very disappointing.

Uplifting

A lot of the information is what my mother has been telling me for years! That all ailments primarily stem from lack of nutrition.

It’s known that the modern medical system is corrupted by those not seeking a healthy population.

When individuals with no medical background only the desire to live must research and discover cures for their cancer that the medical system could give no hope for, something is very wrong.

Meditation, deep breathing, yoga, cold water swimming, a healthy living raw food diet are elements of a happy life

can't be trusted

on the face of it it sounds reasonable but there is little evidence presented with case studies and the writer as recently been convicted, so this is not worth listening to.
