Today’s Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 134, originally published in April 2013.
Dr. Robert Young, co-author with his wife, Shelley, of The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health, joins Jason Hartman to discuss the biology of the human body at the cellular level. Dr. Young explains the importance of alkaline balance and provides examples of environmental and man-made situations that shift this balance. One example is a comparison of an alkaline battery and the human body – the human body is an electrical being that runs on electrical energy, which we derive from our environment and foods. When the acid in the body is out of balance, we become sick, depressed, or tired. A buildup of acid causes the body to shut down. Dr. Young offers answers to correcting the pH level in the body that will help neutralize the acids that are continually produced, such as lactic acid and uric acid.
