The pH Miracle is written by microbiologist and nutritionist, Robert Young, PhD. It is based on the concept that the pH levels in our blood and tissues significantly affect our health and when our body is too acidic this can cause fatigue, weight gain, low immunity, parasites, Candida and general poor health.
We can overcome these health problems by adjusting the pH level of the fluids in our body through consuming a diet with a high amount of alkaline foods and following the principles of a healthy lifestyle. The pH Miracle Diet contains guidelines for transitioning to an alkaline diet as well as a complete program for lifelong health maintenance.
To keep your body alkaline your diet must contain at least 70 to 80 percent alkaline foods. For the most part you will be eating a high amount of raw vegetables, juices and sprouts with smaller portions of whole grains, legumes, tofu, fish, nuts and seeds.
While fruits are a good food for cleansing the body and they do contain a high amount of antioxidants, they are also high in sugar and have an acidic effect. The only fruits that you should consume on a regular basis include lemon, lime and grapefruit because they are alkalizing.
Other foods that should be avoided in the pH Miracle Diet include sugar, refined carbohydrates, dairy products, salt, butter, margarine, meat, eggs, wheat, corn, yeast, mushrooms, vinegar, soy sauce, alcohol and caffeine.
The pH Miracle Diet includes four steps:
Vegetables, wheatgrass, soybeans, lentils, amaranth, quinoa, spelt, buckwheat noodles, tofu, almonds, chia seeds, salmon, trout, avocado, flax seed oil, hemp seed oil, herbs and spices, lemon, lime, grapefruit, Bragg liquid aminos.

Dr. Robert Young says that the pH Miracle Diet can increase athletic performance, building stamina and muscle as well as providing more energy. Exercise is recommended because it helps the body to eliminate excess acids and wastes, however the pH Miracle Diet does not include specific exercise advice.

The pH Miracle Diet is based on the concept that we can improve our health and lose weight by maintaining a balanced pH and consuming more alkaline foods.
This program is very restrictive regarding the permitted foods, however it may be of benefit for those with chronic health problems, such as parasites, Candida, fatigue and low immunity that have failed to respond to conventional treatment.
