And that social eating is a celebration again instead of a burden? It will inspire you to keep on trucking and you will develop a lifestyle habit that you will become addicted to.

“How Can Losing Weight Really Be This Complicated?!?”

Alkaline Lifestyle

Dimonique, the alkaline lifestyle is basically an anti-inflammatory diet that will immensely help you and all of your symptoms if you are committed to making some adjustments to relieve your symptoms. Alkalizing would be sooo beneficial for you. I recommend hydrating really well with alkaline water and minerals. Drinking liters of water with super greens and then 1 glass morning and night of the phor salts will work wonders for you. These will flush many toxins from your body, slowly providing relief, persistence is key.

I would also guess that you are low in good omega oils thus the knee popping. I like Nutra Sea fish oils and take them generously in smoothies and salad dressings or by the spoonful.

You can hardly over dose on these according to Dr. Young and his pH Miracle book which is a really good book to read. You most certainly will strengthen bones if you eliminate dairy and replace it with volumes of leafy greens in salads, smoothies and green juices.

Kale is very high in calcium and is full of chlorophyll which builds blood cells that build bone. Milk leaches calcium from our bones and is one of the leading causes of osteoporosis. Hi Julie, my name is Sandra and I am 47 years old and for the past 10 years I have been increasing in a lot of joint pain, this past year it has increased to very chronic pain in the joints and now my feet are stiffing up and the pain to walk on them is getting horrible.

Around 10 years ago I went to a vitamin shop where they had one of those Dr. I would suggest getting Dr. He also outlines it more clearly in his book, this is rather my version. A juice feast is a good way to begin detoxing and cleansing. Depending on your particular health picture the detoxing can be extreme or you may feel cold or flu like symptoms, this is normal.

I highly recommend consulting a nutritionist or naturopath if you have one you know of in your community who can gage and guide your success. I need to say this so that you know you are following suggestions at your own risk. From my experience a juice feast has been fantastic for people with your symptoms but everyone is different, if you can consider this. There is an alkaline food guide on the site to use as a reference for what to eat. Avoid the treat recipes that have dates, or fruits as you want to avoid sugars even if they are from fruit.

Let me know if you have any further questions, but do pick up the book: It will make so much more sense once you read his explanation and you will be more motivated once you are empowered with knowledge. Pls keep me posted on your progress. All the best to you. Wheat grass will be your friend! It will help you immensely! I can try to help: Just came across this site now and am eager to read through more of your posts … first and foremost though, I suffer from Chronic Kidney Disease and have high blood pressure, which I am trying to reduce naturally to prevent my nephrologist from adding another med to my existing one.

I am about to turn Can you tell me if there is any reason I should avoid this diet with the CKD or is is quite the opposite?! HI Molly, I truly believe that this alkaline diet will be helpful for you. Increasing your veggie intake of raw and steamed or lightly sauteed veggies will be very beneficial for CKD and High blood pressure as will eliminating dairy and reducing your consumption of meat and all animal products sticking to organic meats of course and filling in with plant proteins like avocados, hemp seeds, nuts and seeds and legumes or plant protein powders for smoothies as well as including a good dose of healthy omega oils, while avoiding high sodium foods and all processed foods.

I found this link that suggests many veggies as being excellent for CKD so you are on the right track with an alkaline lifestyle. This other link http: I hope this helps and that you can improve your health with some dedicated focus on your diet and lifestyle. Please keep me posted: But I know you are wishing me luck and I will get trawling through some recipes on this site.

Many thanks again, you are super kind! Oh Molly, so glad you are starting to feel the difference. I love lots of lemon or lime in water or soda water and you can sweeten with stevia, add a few strawberries if you like.

Also try raw almond butter on crisp cold celery, it does it for me every time! Let me know how your next appointment goes: Hello, Thank you for the information -it was very informative and detailed as to how i can begin to start living an alkaline lifestyle.

I suffer from uveitis and VKH which is an autoimmune disease that in my case causes inflammation in my eyes. Can you please tell me if you have any past post or information or know of any other frequent visitors of the site that has what i have? I have been searching for a holistic approach and feel this would be the best and beneficial treatment for me right.

I am currently on medications and have been told by doctors that i need to be on them for life and i really prefer not to. So I had my follow up appointment yesterday with my Kidney Dr and was eager to let you know the results.

What are you doing differently? Fact is, since all these changes I am feeling re connected to my intuition, which I had feared I was losing, and my deep sense of faith. The world is a sunnier place. A cloud has lifted. And, personally, I am sure this has as much to do with the healing process as the physical changes. He told me the urine test showed I was barely spilling any protein and that my sodium level was very low. He could literally SEE the changes on screen.

My body told him about the changes I had made before I opened my mouth! I have been spilling significant protein for 6 years plus now. And on the blood pressure front, it has generally dropped, although varies wildly. The Dr was not too worried about this, happy with the average result and realising that with 3.

We just took a holiday to Dorset where everything slipped, think fish and chips, lol, but as I said, this visit has given me the kick I needed to get back on track. I just want to say thankyou so much for taking the time to reply to my first email.

It made all the difference to know you were rooting for me, and I really appreciate it. With Love, Molly X. Congrats to you for all your hard work, it certainly paid off!

It really is amazing how our body can heal when we give it what it really needs. I see you living a perfectly healthy life if you maintain this lifestyle and attitude. Thank you so very much for sharing and posting your results so other readers can appreciate your story and your good news: What I do know that I have learned from Dr.

I believe what it needs is for you to provide it with alkalinity thru whole foods and pure water while nurturing a healthy attitude and stress level. Any inflammation that you are experiencing will be minimized or eliminated which will certainly improve the symptoms.

Hope has to exist for a miracle to happen. Young says one disease is all disease and can be reversed with one cure. If I were you I would certainly find a microscopist to do your live blood analysis so you can see your current picture and then monitor your changes and success. All my best to you and please, please keep me posted.

Hello, I am very interested in this for my mother and I as we have had some health issues. My mom 52 had breast cancer last year and this year she is suffering from bad allergies and a bad cough. In I 29 had a fibroid in my uterus that was removed with surgery. So far I have not had any more problems. Right now I work as a secretary and I am struggling with very low energy and I am tired all the time!

I know that we need to make a big change. We have begun already, trying to cut out sugar, white flour and dairy. Eating whole grains, more fruits and veggies.

I think the hardest thing for us is giving up meat. We love chicken, ground chicken and ground turkey. Where would be a good place for us to start? I am SO excited to find someone who has the same passion of me! My WBC kept climbing. I hate to say but I have fallen into the medical monopoly. I hate meds and I never ever take them so this was a hard blow.

They say Im suppose to take this TKI drug aka chemo pill for the rest of my life! I say they are nutty!! What do u suggest to do for a blood cancer? HI Shara, I commend you for having the strength and intuition to choose the high road without drugs, esp.

I highly recommend reading Dr. I am currently studying the Psychology of disease in nutrition school. This could be very helpful for you if you are open to energy healing, understanding chakras, effects of emotions etc. All the best and please keep me posted as I am sincerely interested in hearing about your journey: Melissa, my sincerest apologies, this comment became buried in the heaps.

You are totally on the right tract esp. I encourage reader to eat as much veggies as possible, raw or steamed, keep your high sugar fruits to a minimum and only enjoy your organic meats times a week, moderation is a good thing here. With regards to cancer there are varying opinions to meat, if it were me I would eliminate it altogether, mostly because animals and humans tend to store environmental toxins, dioxins in particular, in their fatty tissue and these dioxins are not released, ever, unless you bear a child, at which time they are shed.

These foods therefore shaped the nutritional needs of Paleolithic humans. They argue that the physiology and metabolism of modern humans have changed little since the Paleolithic era. The argument is that modern humans have therefore not been able to adapt to the new circumstances. According to the model from the evolutionary discordance hypothesis, "[M]any chronic diseases and degenerative conditions evident in modern Western populations have arisen because of a mismatch between Stone Age genes and modern lifestyles.

They argue that modern humans should follow a diet that is nutritionally closer to that of their Paleolithic ancestors. The evolutionary discordance is incomplete, since it is based mainly on the genetic understanding of the human diet and a unique model of human ancestral diets, without taking into account the flexibility and variability of the human dietary behaviors over time.

While the introduction of grains, dairy, and legumes during the Neolithic revolution may have had some adverse effects on modern humans, if humans had not been nutritionally adaptable, these technological developments would have been dropped. Evolutionary biologist Marlene Zuk writes that the idea that our genetic makeup today matches that of our ancestors is misconceived, and that in debate Cordain was "taken aback" when told that 10, years was "plenty of time" for an evolutionary change in human digestive abilities to have taken place.

Advocates of the diet argue that the increase in diseases of affluence after the dawn of agriculture was caused by changes in diet, but others have countered that it may be that pre-agricultural hunter-gatherers did not suffer from the diseases of affluence because they did not live long enough to develop them.

Excessive food energy intake relative to energy expended, rather than the consumption of specific foods, is more likely to underlie the diseases of affluence. Adoption of the Paleolithic diet assumes that modern humans can reproduce the hunter-gatherer diet. Molecular biologist Marion Nestle argues that "knowledge of the relative proportions of animal and plant foods in the diets of early humans is circumstantial, incomplete, and debatable and that there are insufficient data to identify the composition of a genetically determined optimal diet.

The evidence related to Paleolithic diets is best interpreted as supporting the idea that diets based largely on plant foods promote health and longevity, at least under conditions of food abundance and physical activity. The data for Cordain's book only came from six contemporary hunter-gatherer groups, mainly living in marginal habitats. Kung , whose diet was recorded for a single month, and one was on the Inuit.

For example, wild almonds produce potentially fatal levels of cyanide , but this trait has been bred out of domesticated varieties using artificial selection. Many vegetables, such as broccoli , did not exist in the Paleolithic period; broccoli, cabbage , cauliflower , and kale are modern cultivars of the ancient species Brassica oleracea. Researchers have proposed that cooked starches met the energy demands of an increasing brain size, based on variations in the copy number of genes encoding for amylase.
