Exposing The Alkaline Diet Myth Updated on October 24, 2019 By William Clement 74 Comments By William Clement 74 Comments John Barnes October 24, 2016 Great video man!! Reply Gary McCaffrey October 24, 2016 I agree with your stance on this diet, though I thought the diets proponents thought eating these foods increased the PH of the bodies interstitial fluids, which was where the benefit comes from, not from affecting the PH of the blood. Maybe I was giving them too much credit. Reply Eva Ioannidi-Galani October 24, 2016 Please please, do a video or an article about Raw Vegan and Raw diets! please! Reply Carla Sofia October 24, 2016 Thank you for your videos! You always dress really well too 🙂 Reply Compuman October 24, 2016 You're so wrong! What a pity!, because so many people could benefit from this diet (like me). Please do your research again. Reply Kate Wagner October 24, 2016 My take on this is that the meat and dairy may have been excluded because the chart was meant to show what to avoid on the acidic side and what to eat on the alkaline side. My understanding is that it takes a long time to change your body's PH with diet. What I remember about my mother-in-law as she was dying in the ICU was that they were measuring the PH regularly and very concerned about her acidity. My question to you is why and how do we get acidic? Reply D October 24, 2016 great video! Alkaline diet and water have no serious scientific base! Reply D October 24, 2016 great video! Alkaline diet and water have no serious scientific base! Reply Shannon Hanna October 24, 2016 I think you add no value to anyone with this video. Zero. You've done nothing but use a headline to undermine what many, many people are finding to be a very positive approach to better overall health and well being. Of all the "spectacular" claims to challenge, this should have never even been on your radar. Reply Scott Carlisle October 24, 2016 Hmmm, but cow dairy is NOT healthy for humans. Reply Scott Carlisle October 24, 2016 I think it's very interesting that all the foods on the alkaline side are nutritious, but there's mostly junk on the acidic side. Animal milk is NOT nutritious for humans. Reply Trish Rowland October 24, 2016 Interesting. I had not heard of this diet before. Reply Nichola Ludlam-Raine October 24, 2016 Great video as always! Reply joao manuel Ns October 24, 2016 this dude does not understand the issue … if ph drops the skeleton will be providing the minerals that is the question not that bla bla bla Reply joao manuel Ns October 24, 2016 The human skeletal system is a complex organ in constant equilibrium with the rest of the body. In addition to support and structure of the body, bone is the major reservoir for many minerals and compounds essential for maintaining a healthy pH balance. …. A drop in pH of <0.1 units can cause a 100% increase in osteoclast cell … Reply joao manuel Ns October 24, 2016 nutritionists are naif … Pathways That Alter HomeostasisA variety of homeostatic mechanisms maintain the internal environment within tolerable limits. Either homeostasis is maintained through a series of control mechanisms, or the body suffers various illnesses or disease. When the cells in the body begin to malfunction, the homeostatic balance becomes disrupted. Eventually this leads to disease or cell malfunction. Disease and cellular malfunction can be caused in two basic ways: either, deficiency (cells not getting all they need) or toxicity (cells being poisoned by things they do not need). When homeostasis is interrupted in your cells, there are pathways to correct or worsen the problem. In addition to the internal control mechanisms, there are external influences based primarily on lifestyle choices and environmental exposures that influence our body's ability to maintain cellular health. Nutrition: If your diet is lacking in a specific vitamin or mineral your cells will function poorly, possibly resulting in a disease condition. For example, a menstruating woman with inadequate dietary intake of iron will become anemic. Lack of hemoglobin, a molecule that requires iron, will result in reduced oxygen-carrying capacity. In mild cases symptoms may be vague (e.g. fatigue), but if the anemia (British English: anaemia) is severe the body will try to compensate by increasing cardiac output, leading to palpitations and sweatiness, and possibly to heart failure.Toxins: Any substance that interferes with cellular function, causing cellular malfunction. This is done through a variety of ways; chemical, plant, insecticides, and/or bites. A commonly seen example of this is drug overdoses. When a person takes too much of a drug their vital signs begin to waver; either increasing or decreasing, these vital signs can cause problems including coma, brain damage and even death.Psychological: Your physical health and mental health are inseparable. Our thoughts and emotions cause chemical changes to take place either for better as with meditation, or worse as with stress.Physical: Physical maintenance is essential for our cells and bodies. Adequate rest, sunlight, and exercise are examples of physical mechanisms for influencing homeostasis. Lack of sleep is related to a number of ailments such as irregular cardiac rhythms, fatigue, anxiety and headaches.Genetic/Reproductive: Inheriting strengths and weaknesses is part of our genetic makeup. Genes are sometimes turned off or on due to external factors which we can have some control over, but at other times little can be done to correct or improve genetic diseases. Beginning at the cellular level a variety of diseases come from mutated genes. For example, cancer can be genetically inherited or can be caused due to a mutation from an external source such as radiation or genes altered in a fetus when the mother uses drugs.Medical: Because of genetic differences some bodies need help in gaining or maintaining homeostasis. Through modern medicine our bodies can be given different aids, from anti-bodies to help fight infections, or chemotherapy to kill harmful cancer cells. Traditional and alternative medical practices have many benefits, but like any medical practice the potential for harmful effects is present. Whether by nosocomial infections, or wrong dosage of medication, homeostasis can be altered by that which is trying to fix it. Trial and error with medications can cause potential harmful reactions and possibly death if not caught soon enough. Reply joao manuel Ns October 24, 2016 nutrition is in the equation but in reality we must FAST … fasting is decisive and they tell us to eat 6 meals and more . the real hoax is nutrition paradigms as we must adapt constantly .my problem was insulin resistance and pre diabetic state .i am seeking my bmi under 24 with intermittent fasting and a radical change in nutrition which was too much dependent on carbs . to much carbs make insulin resistance soars better is high fat that will not develop pancreatic dependency . maple syrup and lemon , red tea etc . Reply Fareed Zumorito-Arimoto October 25, 2016 interesting, because alkaline water got rid of my friends gout flare ups. eating an alkaline diet make u feel better not just my opinion saw it happen Reply leigh kendall October 25, 2016 So good to hear your view on the Alkaline Diet. I was following one and my blood pressure, Iron, other vitamins have always been perfect and now my blood pressure is low, Irons and vitamins are low and I feel faint all the time. Think its time to back to what Fruit and veggies and a very small amount of meat. Thank you. Reply Alan Yurychuk October 25, 2016 What about the alkalinity or aicdity of the digestive tract. Lo and behold the bacteria growing there have a profound affect on our health. Reply Stacey October 25, 2016 Maybe instead of believing a bunch of doctors, and a bunch of people in the world who can't afford to be out of jobs if the alkaline diet in fact is true, maybe you should try it yourself on you, and 10 of your friends. Just a thought. Like I have done with me, my children, and 10 of my friends, and even my geriatric Father. Maybe you should in fact put your facts in cold hard truths that can stand right in front of you, than faith in people you have never met(regardless of their degrees they have behind them) Reply Shannon Flavell October 25, 2016 Sounds more like Joe was payed off by big pharma to me. Reply Del Thomas October 25, 2016 meat and dairy are nutritious?….you are a mad man, how many animals drink milk after weaning and how many eat the milk of ANOTHER ANIMAL like we do. meat is putrid dead food and I'm not a vegetarian. if your blood has an acid PH you are dead within seconds…you sir are an idiot Reply abhijit chanda October 26, 2016 Way to go, man! Finally, someone has debunked this pseudodiet! keep it up! Reply Thea Rodriguez October 26, 2016 I know this but sugar feeds cancer, bacteria and canduda so alkaline foods help with this so I stopped listening there is no new science here and very dull and monotone to listen too! Reply Gonçalves Alves October 27, 2016 I see a lot of similarities between the alkaline diet and the blood type diet. Despite their concepts having no scientific evidences, at their core they DO teach you how to eat healthy, i.e., having more fruits and vegetables, drinking more water, and avoiding processed foods and pseudo-foods. Such habits are pretty much the epitome of good health, and it explains why so many people have good results with these diets.At the end of the day, it is the same old formula of good nutrition, but in fancy, different presentations. Reply Nancy Massi October 27, 2016 AN, there have been people who have healed themselves following a specific diet. I am curious, have you ever watched one of Dr. Morse's videos? Someone else directed me to him, I'd like to hear what you think about him. Forgive if you've discussed him before. Reply Rick October 28, 2016 My father does a few things to reduce the acidity in his body. 78yrs and now in remission of prostate cancer. No drugs, radiation etc. How can this be.? Reply Euphorixa November 19, 2016 Lol this guy sounds lost & confused. Dairy isn't good for you & studies have shown it. Meat isn't a necessity & takes a long time to digest in your body. Somehow he believes highly processed, food-like substances which have been proven to cause sickness are healthy? Reply Naturally Kie December 21, 2016 They're is alkaline nuts…and majority of the food on the acidic side were bad junk food..that WE ALLL KNOW, contribute to diseases and bad health in general..and they're is plenty of high protein alkaline foods..this dude is load of crock Reply ḯt December 29, 2016 So eating processed sugar, McDonalds etc doesn't affect the acidity in your body and over long period doesn't give cancer and a lot of other diseases? So what is the point of eating vegetables if it doesn't make your environment more Alkaline which would lead to better health and overall protection? Reply Arathae Maxus February 7, 2017 Lol I find it hilarious how many people disagree with a dietician. Not a "nutritionist" which anyone can call themselves. A "dietitian" which you cannot call you're self unless you have an official education in nutrition. Reply Arathae Maxus February 17, 2017 A pH of 7 is neutral. Blood is 7.35-7.45 which is hardly anything at all. Not only can it be harmful to drop below 7.35 (acid) but it is also harmful to go above 7.45 (alkaline) Reply me me February 21, 2017 then why has a high alkaline diet even consuming soda powder has cured cancer Reply Mike Justice March 4, 2017 It's decent diet but have a balance diet Reply Lizzie Kaster March 5, 2017 Within a minute he was wrong.. the stomach acid pH is 1.8. Not between 2 and 3.5. Reply jimeez69 April 19, 2017 you are paid to lie. almost everything you said was bullshit. meat and dairy are not healthy. anyone who agrees is now dumber . please delete your channel Reply chris wilson May 8, 2017 this guy is wrong. Reply Yahshem Yahsrael June 2, 2017 yes he was paid off god save your soul Reply boom50583 June 15, 2017 No one knows shit. trust in death. die well bitches. Reply Zak Zanotti June 29, 2017 I don't believe a word you say. There's people who have cured cancer through alkaline diets. which makes sense cos we're not carnivores. We've got hands to pick berrys and vegetables. And are teeth are for cracking nuts and seeds. Not for eating meet. Reply A Happy Broccoli July 11, 2017 weird… how come people get heart attacks from your so called "nutritious" milk and corpses? Reply Hermanno July 13, 2017 thanks for explaining this, this diet can be dangerous and are not evidence based at all there are no scientific data that suggests that acidic food will cause any problems with your body, it's pseudoscience which have to stop ! Reply NASTEfilms August 7, 2017 2:07 so LEMONS have a ph level of 9.5? and peas have the same PH as lye?ok. Reply Indoor Cycling & Spinning August 26, 2017 It is ironic that you say: "the onus of proof always falls on the party making spectacular claims" . But make all these crazy claims. Do you have any formal education? Reply Marius Copil September 25, 2017 Cancer is very acidic Both healthy cells and cancer cells use glucose as their prime energy source. But, for a normal cancer cell, glucose is essential. In a cancer cell the mitochondrial power stations of the healthy cell have run down and switched off. This means that the energy production system lies in the cytoplasm, where in healthy cells glucose is normally processed ready for the mitochondria. A little of the glucose burns in the cytoplasm; nothing like the mitochondrial output. So it´s all very inefficient. And therefore since a cancer cell needs lots of energy to grow, it demands lots of glucose. This process, called glycolysis, is very acidic and cancer tumours have a pH of about 6.2 at their core. You don't know nothing! People stop White sugar and animal protein until the tumors are gone! Reply bonnie bassett September 26, 2017 Interesting to here an opposing view point but it was my understanding that the body retains it's alkaline state but when we are feeding it acidic foods the body has to fight harder to retain that alkaline state and that is why the damage to the body occurs . Eating a diet high in alkaline foods is easier on one's health and body there is no "fight ". It is common sense that we do not need to have killing factories for animals or drink cows milk and make products from the milk that was made for calves ! Reply Rochelle El November 16, 2017 I'll stick with my alkaline diet….i haven't been sick in over 10 years….you can have that acidic cancer causing crap. Reply Kayla Albrecht January 30, 2018 This was a very informative video, thanks very much.. makes sense to me! All I need to do is cut the dairy, I think grass fed meats and veggies especially organic and drink teas and use spices and herbs you should be okay; I read that people will get sick if they are lacking nutrients so eat up and get a variety from the best foods. Reply Ludvio January 31, 2018 JEW-O METER IS OFF THE CHARTS! Reply Bhratri Bhushan February 14, 2018 Kim’s story just blew my mind! How propaganda works! Reply Reesie'sPointOfView February 20, 2018 there are real life testimonials of people whose diseases were cured from eating an alkaline diet. Check out the deceased Mr. Dr. Sebi. The medical companies don't do this kind of research and the truth is medical Dr's are NOT trained n nutrition at all Reply Nikita Webber April 25, 2018 Apple cider vinegar is very acid (2.?) yet it turns ur body alkali they claim. Carey's forward that if an acidic substance can turn u alkali, ph of the food going in has very little to do with anything. Also every food has to get past the stomach acid…. ACID!!!! Reply Tue back up for easy May 18, 2018 I wonder how many suckers are gonna believe this bullsh… Reply spliter227 May 19, 2018 Note* Poochie died on the way back to his home planet Reply Chrissie Grech May 26, 2018 It's a shame he thinks that dairy and meat are essential to health. What about life-long vegans? Reply lexy0127 August 29, 2018 Meat is bad for u milk is bad for u cows milk Reply Killotarian October 10, 2018 This guys taken a seriously simplistic approach to this topic, which makes me wonder who’s funding this video. We already know that Omega 3 fatty acids are good mate. “Amino acids” are the building blocks of human organic matter. However to lump them in with the Ascorbic acid in cola seems like someone is either tootin barbs or been paid off. Drinking sugary acidic drinks and excess fried foods with saturated fat causes the liver to struggle and ultimately the body DOES begin to shift to a more acidic state. That has nothing to do with your stomach acid. Next you’ll be telling everyone that consuming pesticides with your food with every meal is OK. Reply The New Jerusalem November 4, 2018 Flag this lie of a video Reply Vynland November 11, 2018 Many of these people switch from a trash diet to a diet that is nutrient dense (notice how these foods are usually plants with lots of minerals an vitamins), they change their bad diets to a one that gets ther RDA mineral intake, like potassium (which is VERY HIGH and hard to get otherwise) 4700 mg. Reply Foxy December 9, 2018 the more you know Reply Steve Miller December 13, 2018 Question Was this video funded by the beef, pork, or dairy industry? Want the truth read something unbiased like from the national institute of health NIH. Reply Dragon fly January 6, 2019 so if i was to believe you it would go against everything ive personally experienced. the mucus i cough up everytime i eat some garbage food shit Reply PLAYER1 February 10, 2019 acids kills…try acid diet if you got acid flux,ulcer,heart burn etc…drink wine and eat spicy meat during acid flux lets see what happend….alkaline heals period…talk to all that been healed from aids and tumors by sebi what did they take… Reply Apollo B. February 22, 2019 You left out naturally healing herbs 🤔 Reply Natalie Hernandez April 1, 2019 How about you try it yourself and stop believing people who benefit from debunking it. But y'all can die faster if you want 😉 Reply War2827Eagle April 2, 2019 Nah, you're just a racist bro Reply LALA LALA April 7, 2019 He's lying mixing the truth with a lie. If everyone go alkaline it could prevent cancer and prevent them from making money. Reply Fred Craven April 8, 2019 The body is acidic that means there's no oxygen in the body, that's when the body starts producing to see is, yeah the main way body keeps alkaline is through carbon dioxide carbonate buffer system, but to say alkaline foods don't increase the alkalinity is a fallacy Reply SRose .fournillier April 17, 2019 Did u say dairy meats and legumes are healthy? How? Where? Reply drop yo panties April 24, 2019 What if you eat animal-based? Reply marianni fonseca May 19, 2019 Be sure to read honest and real reviews of The Alkaline Diet on my blog before you buy. Go to gohonestreviews. com/the-alkaline-diet-review/ Thanks, Lucio. Reply Zello King June 27, 2019 How does he know about cancer like that wait a minute this getting interesting they just gave them self up pharmaceutical you bastards. Reply Zello King June 27, 2019 How does this guy come out and say all that to eat meat and and drink milk You can’t address everyone with your bs how do you know that the people who are on an alkaline diet don’t feel better how does he know. I feel way better after my diet from my experience the one thing that almost kill me was yeast and sugar my toe nails were black my teeth were turning black I started getting panic attacks I tough I was going crazy.
