The following is an unsolicited testimony of the efficacy of the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet.
The biggest challenge with living a pH Miracle Diet and Lifestyle is the decision to live the pH Miracle Diet and Lifestyle. Once you have decided you want health, energy and vitality back into your life, living the pH Miracle Diet and Lifestyle is easy.
I will first share with you a thought and then an amazing reversal of Systemic Lupus Erythematosis.
In love and healing light,
Dr. Robert O. Young
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation.
There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen events, meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would have come their way.
I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: "Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!""
And now the testimony of Deb McDougall:
Dear Dr. Young, Shelley Young, and Dr. Patrick,
I wanted and needed to tell you how much of an impact the pH Miracle Diet and living an alkalarian lifestyle has had on my life.
I was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus in 1984 when I was only 15 years old. To "help" with the arthritis, high blood pressure, face rash, spleen/platelet and kidney problems doctors put me on over 25 different prescriptions of steroids, immune blockers and anti-malarial drugs. I took Prednisone for almost 15 years. I gained more and more weight and just got sicker and sicker. Sometimes the drugs gave me worse side effects than the actual problem, which lead me to take more drugs. Just some of the side-effects were weight gain, delusions, drug-induced hepatitis, depression, and sleeping pill dependency. In my short 41 year life, I've been on prescriptions for longer than I've been off them.
Last summer in mid-August (2008), I came across The pH Miracle for Weight Loss by Dr. Robert and Shelley Young, read it and started it right away. In the first week I lost 20 pounds and felt more energy already. I hit plateaus where I didn't lose weight, but I kept going back to eating alkaline foods because when I did I felt much better, had less pain and no face rash.
To date (about 7 months) I have lost 80 pounds, and my goal is 20 more. I faithfully weigh myself each morning, and also keep track of what I ate the day before. Yesterday I counted all my "alkaline" days and my "non-alkaline days" (also known as "the day I ate something(s) acidic) - and I've lost the 80 pounds in only 120 "alkaline days" - not too bad I think. But more importantly, I have been able to stop taking ALL prescriptions and I don't even need tylenol or any other pain killers for pain - because I have none! (...well, as long as I'm eating alkaline foods.... but if I eat acidic foods I start feeling it within an hour!)
This is pretty amazing to me because my rheumatologist stated that I would be on Plaquenil for the rest of my life. When I went to see her last month (she hadn't seen me since October), she was astonished with my perfect blood work and organ tests, perfect blood pressure and perfect overall health. She actually proclaimed me "A WALKING MIRACLE" ... and I said ..."No....it's the pH Miracle!"
I love this new alkaline world that has been opened to me - and I share it with anyone that is willing to listen.
There are no words I can think of to express my respect and gratitude for Dr. Robert Young for his tremendous dedication and invaluable research, to Shelley Young for her vibrancy and awesome recipes, and to Dr. Patrick Sobota for his knowledge, sense of humor, and saintly patience (....for not being annoyed at all my silly questions).
Thank you all, and I will be a dedicated alkalarian for the rest of my life.
P.S. I also really appreciate all the articles, testimonies and information available to me from your websites (love your products as well). www.phmiracleliving.com or www.articlesofhealth.blogspot.com

Sorry to take up your time but I just have to respond to this e-mail.
What a wonderful message!
I have a serious heart condition and my wife has a multitude of chronic illnesses. I have been at the point where I think, "I might as well drink the coffee and cream and eat the donuts because I can't afford to do the pH diet anyway. Well this little message has encouraged me to get started anyway. At least I can stop eating a lot of the bad stuff and eat as much of the good stuff as I can. Without beginning we can't accomplish anything. And I just love the quote from Goethe.
Today is step number one. No cream in my coffee. Next week. No coffee and no dairy at all. and so on. It feels quite empowering just knowing I've begun the journey. And I will keep my eyes on the prize. Excellent health.
Thank you so much Dr. Young and Shelley.
