The a course in miracles youtube or alkaline diet is the brainchild of Dr. Robert Young and it can be described as an exciting new way of eating. According to the diet, it is important to balance the intake of alkaline and acid foods in your diet. This balance causes the blood to flow freely through the arteries and veins in your body. It also aids cellular growth, which in turn leads to optimal functioning of the cells. Reduced acidic levels can result in higher energy levels and an increase in overall health conditions. These results can be obtained by following a balanced diet and regular testing of pH levels through the use of saliva test strips.
Dr. Young says a diet that includes 80% alkaline producing food and 20% acid producing foods will help people to have healthier bodies and lead to a healthier lifestyle. By researching the pH levels of the human body, Dr. Robert Young found that it functions best at a level of 7.35.
The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14 with 1 being highly acidic and 14 being highly alkaline. As the body tends to have a slightly alkaline level, people should strive to add more alkaline foods to their diet. Dr. Young believes that a body that has huge amounts of acid does not have any resistance to serious illnesses or other health related conditions.
Dr. Robert Young studied at the University of Utah in the early 70’s and his main subjects were biology and business. He obtained a M.S. and PhD in Nutrition as well as a D.Sc in Science. During the 1990’s he obtained a ND (Naturopathic Doctor) from the Clayton College of Natural Health. There are many critics who question the validity of the schools where he received his degrees. Yet, despite these criticisms, one cannot deny the fact that Dr. Young has helped many people to change their health by increasing their intake of fruit and vegetables and by drinking more water. He also advices people to eliminate caffeine and alcohol from their daily diet to maintain their newfound health and vitality.
Dr. Young staunchly believes in pleomorphism, the ability of bacteria to change their shape dramatically or to exist in a number of changing forms. As a result of this belief of Dr. Young, the microbiologist communities were split into two schools of thought. On the one hand the pleomorphists support these claims while the monomorphists on the other hand, strongly disagree. In scientific circles the monomorphic theory of cell development whereby each cell that is formed comes from a previously existing cell of basically the same size and shape, is now generally accepted worldwide.
Dr. Young offers retreats where people can be educated about the benefits of the pH Miracle diet. He also analyse live red blood cells in an in-depth microscopy seminar. The National Council Against Health Fraud reported that Dr. Young pleaded guilty in 1996 to a misdemeanor charge of attempted practice of medicine without a license. He was promised that this charge would be dismissed if he could stay out of trouble for 18 months. Dr. Young allegedly examined blood samples from two women who visited him to find out more about nutrition.
