When someone has been diagnosed with a serious disease they may have heard about others who have regained recovery by choosing a recovery eating plan? According to META-Medicine it’s important to get the inner physiology as well as they outer well-being aspects of your system into a recovery mindset so-to-speak.
And the dietary aspect can be reached by alkalising the internal system, because according to the Two Phases Of Disease, the first stress phase has us reaching for the high energy quick-fix foods that are acidic by nature, but the second phase (where the symptoms arrive) can be helped enormously by alkalising the body, which slows the system down and encourages recuperation.
But be warned this can make the body very sleepy and if already quite poorly (dependent on the current lifestyle and types of foods contained in your diet) a radical change could be too much, and set you back further, therefore a cautious approach is highly recommended.
Instead of jumping in head-first you might begin by introducing some of the foodstuffs shown below, gradually integrating an alkaline eating system into your daily regime, over a period of weeks or months. See below the Food Table if you are not seriously ill and want to get your system back on an even-keel.
Why Am I Sick
The mainstay of this is taken from Richard Flook’s book Why Am I Sick Chapter 12 – Vitality, Food And Drugs:
|Avocado (hass)||Banana (unripe)||Barley grass||Borage oil|
|Cabbage (fresh)||Caraway seeds||Carrot||Cauliflower|
|Cayenne pepper||Celery||Cherry (sour)||Chives|
|Coconut meat (fresh)||Coconut water||Comfrey||Cucumber (fresh)|
|Cumin seeds||Dandelion (greens)||Endive (fresh)||Evening primrose oil|
|Fennel seed||Flaxseed oil||French beans||Fresh red beetroot|
|Garlic||Green cabbage||Kamut grass||Lemon|
|Linseeds||Marine lipides||Navy beans||Olive oil|
|Onion||Peas (ripe)||Red radish||Sesame seed|
|Sorrel||Soy bean sprouts||Soy flour||Soy lecithin (pure)|
|Soy nuts||Soy beans (cooked)||Spinach||Sprouted radish seeds|
|Summer black radish||Swede||Tofu||Tomato (fresh)|
|Wheat grass||White beans||White cabbage||White radish|
The above table was compiled from the book The pH Miracle by Robert and Shelley Young
Allowing The Body To Resume Normal Service
However, if you are not seriously ill, but want to use this method in tandem with clearing some of the emotional stuff that holds you back from eating normally then it may still make you tired with erratic sleeping patterns.

But after a couple of weeks, that should pass and after a couple of months on this eating method your system should be free of the cravings and help you run your life with far less stress driving you between The Two Phases Of Disease.
And one of the positive side-effects you may just enjoy is a reduction in weight, because this will lose body fat, re-energise the system and clear the head.
I’m going to order a copy of The pH Miracle myself and if you want to join me in reading and implementing the ideas then it would be great to share experiences.
