The introduction to the Alkaline Diet in the first half of the book is wonderfully written and easy to understand. The 14 day meal plan and lifestyle guide falters, however, with dull, complex to make meals and a shortage of exercise tips.

For those who don’t know, the Alkaline Diet basically is the idea that our bodies function best with a pH balance between 7.3 and 7.5, but modern lifestyles wreak havoc with this balance, making us too acidic. What impacts our pH balance is our food and lifesty
Thank you goodreads for sending me this book. I thought it was interesting but I already know I'm not disciplined enough to follow the 14 day cleanse and I'm not going to collect yarrow and nettles to make tea. As far as I know North Dakota grocery stores don't sell them. I will try to drink more water a peppermint tea and chew my food more thoroughly. I think illustrations for some of the exercises would have been a benefit and I'm going to try a baking soda bath. Interestingly enough, even tho ...more

The Alkaline Cure is a great intro level dietary lifestyle change resource. It was simple, informative (without being overwhelming), and easy to follow with regard to the acid-alkaline relationship and the body's processes. The 14-day plan will likely appeal to those interested in making an easy transition from the SAD to a detoxed body. The included recipes were a bonus.

An e-copy of this title was made available via the publisher in exchange for an honest critique.
i had heard lots about the alkaline/acid balance and decided to look into it. this was an easy read, easy to follow plan but would require some BIG changes -- in the end, i am left picking and choosing which changes i can make and work best for me, and hope that that counts for something! as convincing as the argument is, circumstances won't allow for a complete switchover at this time. learning how to improve health and eating habits is always a good read for me however and never gets old, and ...more

An excellent overview on the effects of the PH balance on the human body. I'm a big believer in the idea that keeping the body alkaline is healing so was delighted to get a chance to read this book. Well laid out, explained clearly and concisely, I enjoyed the 14 day plan and by the end, I had more energy, my skin appeared clearer and I lost four stubborn pounds. Looking forward to continuing this plan!

I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway. The Alkaline Cure was both interesting and informative. I had never realized how many acidic foods we put into our bodies. Although I didn't try the complete cleanse, I enjoyed the recipes in the back of the book. Also included were pH strips to measure your own body's pH.
Another magic diet based on some medical assumption, not particularly difficult to follow as long as you are a vegetarian, which is not my problem as a matter of fact. Interesting way to define some physical problems anyway.

Altra magica dieta basata su qualche assioma medico, non particolarmente difficile da seguire a patto di essere vegetariani, che non é uno dei miei problemi fortunatamente.
Alcune modalitá interessanti di spiegare problemi di tipo fisico.

I've heard about this in different forums. I read through it, and it's very concise without becoming too techie. I looked at one site that got into the chemistry of digestion: not for me.

This book is to the point. It includes a list of foods (and food types) that will help you work your way to a healthy lifestyle. It also has a 14 day crash course (menus and recipes included) to get you there faster.

There are some minor grammatical problems, but for the most part they don't detract from what yo

Amazing Information and wonderful, easy recipies. I've known about acid & alkaline balance for a while but this book has inspired me to follow the 14 day plan as much as possible

The Alkaline Cure is by far one of the most informative books that I have read this far. Each step is clearly explained as to why your body needs a "cure". I can honestly say that this is not a feasible cure for me with a family of young children and the time it would take to prepare meals for myself and my family separately. I have definitely picked up a few good suggestions from the book though, such as chewing my food at least 30 times and not drinking while i am having a meal. Can't say I wa ...more

I thought that this book was pretty interesting. I didn't sit down and read every word in the book but I skimmed over the parts that interested me and was able to learn some things. I didn't participate in the cleanse because I don't do those things but I did learn a lot about the foods that I eat and the foods that I should eat. There are some ph testing strips in the back of the book so you can test yourself if you choose to do the cleanse or you just want to know your ph levels.
