  • If you know the source of the food Veg/meat/Fish the PALEO diet is good but, when you ingest Veggies & fruits blessed by DOW, DuPont and Monsanto might as well say hello to CANCER and other illnesses. The Vegan Frito-Lay chips made by Pepsi, corn/potatoes grown in Mexico mass contaminated by Monsanto, only suitable for Horses and pigs, at the Frito-lays plants a former worker told me Mexicans there spit on the food destined to the US yet, people in the US are so stupid to buy that garbage everyday and give it to their children.

  • No sense in stressing the kidneys, filtering acid when you can just reduce the load by opting for less acidic input.  I know, “the kidneys filter acid.”, again, no sense stressing their workload. I doubt you did or read any research on just how much that stress contributes to their stress. Also the point about acquiring acid due to cancer as opposed to not acquiring acid when cancer hasn’t yet taken hold. It seems to me that an acid rich environment would make an individual more susceptible if cancer seems to be predisposed to an acid rich environment.  My conclusion, err on the side of caution.

  • Here stupid people, something by a REAL medical doctor. What credential does this Quack have? https://quackwatch.org/related/dsh/coral2/

  • VERY valuable information for health. The importance of consuming mineral-rich food like our ancestors is underrated. We really need to continue to stress eating less acidic foods.

  • So if it doesn’t matter how acidic the food you eat is, why would alcohol, chocolate, caffeine and high fat be eliminated from the diet of a person with GERD? That’s right!! To reduce the acid in tge stomach!

  • Heres a perfect way to tell what God has created us to consume: How many teeth do adult humans have: 32. How many are Canine teeth: 4. The rest are incisor, premolars and molar teeth, designed to break down and mush up various foods, plants, nuts, seeds and so on. The 4 teeth called the canine teeth are sharp and designed to pierce the meat and rip it apart for the rest of the teeth to further process. Simply implying that we are created to eat a varied diet that consists of fruits, veggies, some grain foods, and sometimes meats (4 canines). Look at teeth of animals, both carnivores and omnivores and you will see that their teeth structure is designed for them eat a specific diet. My prefered diet is that of Prophet Muhammad and i consider it to be a Perfect diet. Research it for yourself!

  • This teaches you nothing about “how to detox and fight disease”. It’s just a lady recapping her experience with it. Dumbass content

  • Hi..brad��

  • The only problem I have with eating meat is that I don’t want to support the level of inhumanity that goes on. Kosher seemes better but I’m really kind of torn on that still, I guess I need to do more research on it.
    The main problem with the world is there are to many people in this world and the meat demands, well not only just meats but demands period are to high. We really don’t need as much as we think we do. That is all. This is why I fast. To be grateful for what I have.

    As for water types I’m still torn between distilled vs spring.
    Because I can get alkaline from foods shirt I can get water from foods. Do we really need that much water or even that much food. Hmm ��

  • Still don’t know the right words to express my gratitude to the great @doctor_osaghae1, after been diagnosed with the herpes virus for the passed 3years, i was given so many health prescription and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until i found many testimonies of great @doctor_osaghae1 in an online research like anybody would be, i advise any one that is living with herpes virus should contact the one and only great @doctor_osaghae1 you can contact Dr Osaghae on email [email protected] gmail.com or whatsapp him on +2348119277701 today, because he has the cure to any virus problem.

  • Anybody notice every doctor sebi interview except the rock newman one (where he isn’t detailing the alkaline fast) has been removed off of Youtube?
    There is no money in the cure!
    Dr. Sebi was curing people ��
    This video was not correct though Sebi was talking about the original African diet he was against things like “poached eggs”

  • Its a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how i got my Herpes cured a month ago. i have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by dr_onomen but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try dr_onomen_, then i contacted him through his email when i contact him, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i please with him to help me out. My treatment was a great success, he healed me just as he promised. he sent me his medication and ask me to go for check up after one weeks of taking the medication. i agreed with him i took this medication and went for check up a, to my greatest surprise my result was negative after the treatment, i am really happy that i am cured and healthy again. I have waited for 3weeks to be very sure i was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still herpes negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through Herpes GENITAL HERPES LUPUSHERPES HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, Hepatitis B, Diabetes, Cancer reach him through Email [email protected]  or WhatsApp +2348147048097contact him via facebook page  https://m.facebook.com/dronomenherpesandhivcure

God made herbs and roots for the well being of mankind and these same herbs cured me using Doc Oziengbe herbs remedy. Contact him today via his Youtube channel Dr Oziengbe

  • It’s not the whole circulatory system Alkaline affects, it’s the lymphatic part of the circulatory system…as well as the entire integumentary system that the Alkaline diet works wonders for. So when he says you cannot make the blood Alkaline, he’s 100% correct. But that isn’t the purpose of the Alkaline diet.


  • i was able to get rid of herpes virus with herbal medication i got from Dr Ayomede, living with herpes virus made me realize that herbal medication are very powerful and is of great use

  • Eatting more of raw vegetables and fruit help detox your body. If you cant eat it raw low fire cook no higher than 120 fire heat. Intense fire kill off nutritions and vitamins we need for our body. We are a living organism that need oxygenated food to stay dieases free. Hopes this help 100s maybe thousands or millions of people…

  • Why would a scientist or Dr want to promote something that’s stopping sickness and stopping people from buying products? That’s like a drug dealer promoting rehab. Sickness is big business ��

  • Rest in peace dr sebi I never had the opportunity to use your herbal treatment before the government took it of the market. Today in this time of crisis due to COVID19 I was scared because of my immune system was down due to my Hiv status. people are very alert to boost there immunity and are trying different things to stay healthy and safe. Stress not to wonder what is the best. Here I found the best Herbal cure to make me Negative again. (Dr kanayo 14 days herbal cure) if you don’t believe research on your internet. it was recommended to me by a lady who used it to cure her diabetes and Herpes

  • Living with genital herpes virus was the worst situation i have ever been in but finally tested negative today after using the herbs supplement Dr. kwaloe on you tube prepared for me

  • i was able to get rid of my herpes virus with herbal medication i got from Dr.ozuka, this great man used his medication to cure me and now i test negative to hsv2

  • There are 100’s of Doctors on YouTube promoting health and too often it comes down to them promoting an expensive product, book, regimen of some sort or another. That is what bothers me about your YouTube videos.
    I was being pushed to go on Fosamax (67 yr. old female) due to a concerning bone density test. When I started reading about Fosamax; I was not willing to do that. Now, my Dr. wants me to consider newer inject-able type of drugs. I read up on those and again major side effects. I am not willing to do it. My Dr. now has me taking a high quality Omega 3 Fish Oil, Calcium Citrate, High quality multiple vitamin with minerals, increased my Vitamin D and has me taking K2. She is telling me to stay away from glutens. She wants to re-test my bone density in year. She also wanted me to take Strontium; but, there is concerns with that as well with some studies. I saw your bone supplement has strontium and MSM. I do not like the strontium and I am allergic to the MSM. I am working with a PT Therapist to come with a plan for exercise. I have nerve damage from a disaster in back surgery on my right side, lower leg, and foot. Also, CRPS. So, very frustrating figuring out what to do for this issue. I know you promote different testing for bone quality. I am going to refer my Dr. to your video. The alkaline situation in our bodies is interesting. I will have to get your book to read up on that. It sounds like that issue could improve bone quality as well.

  • If u implement (real life) and (common sense) into what this guy is saying it just doesn’t add up, all around us people are sick and dying of disease directly related with animal products,
    Look up how many die a year from cholesterol problems, im sure you wont even have to look outside of your own family to see the impact of cholesterol, people often say (thoughtless) things like heart disease runs in my family, its “hereditary” lol when in all reality the main thing you inherited from your parents just like them from their parents was the( DIET )
    Change the diet and fix the problem
    It is neither natural nor historical
    for children to die of cancer or for our life expectancy to be between 50 and 60 years, its been proven throughout history that we can live 100 plus years, why are we not even getting close to that number?
    ..dont take my word for it or anyone else’s for that matter, do your own research and put it in to play with real life and common sense, they gave us brains to use them not to let someone like this guy think for us

  • that is a myth indeed but people hold on to this believe like a religion. usually vegans and vegetarians which is their religion already. many doctors and nutritionists have come out apologizing because they themselves hyped it and mislead people.

  • The doctor is talking about a healthy and perfect body regulating it’s pH perfectly going into the technicisms and he is right and the change in the pH could be minimal, but is not addressing the main concern of the people that get sick when eating acidic food and feel better taking more alkaline ones. If this minimal or infimate change of pH in wherever place of your body that is relevant is enough to make you sick, why doctors don’t address this situation?

  • And the clock ticks onward and I’m left with yet more questions than answers. Meanwhile, 46 years old, still receiving conflicting reports regarding my thyroid, tried every diet and workout combination imaginable and still no progress. The latest fads will surely kill me so I don’t think I’ll be resorting to the water diet anytime soon, tick tock tick tock

  • Well it’s simple, get someone who eats a lot of meat and carbs vs someone who eats a lot of veggies and fruits…who do you think will be healthier?
