“Medical myths”

This is an email that I was forwarded from a lady on my mailing list.  I had sent her an email about my detox experiences and the benefits of alkaline water.  She forwarded it on to someone she knows and this was his response.

The reason I am posting it here is because it proves the sad state that our medical industry has reached.  If you don’t get injected with toxins and medicated to death, then you’re dealing with a ‘myth’.

It’s about time doctors took natural healing more seriously, don’t you think?

“Dear E., the ideas presented by your friend Alia are called: “medical myths” and completely worthless. There is no such thing as “de-toxication program” and alkaline water is completely useless. There is no scientific value for those practices. It is clear to me that your friend is marketing something for profit regardless of its scientific value… You should be careful not to let such people use you for such purposes.” Dr. MD

Let me know what you think. Leave a comment below.

Here are the blog posts that I put up over the past few days:

    I’m sure he’s scared that he is going to lose out on his profits if more and more people take up your natural remedies. I’m going to try the detox programs soon and will let you how I feel by the end of it! Thanks Alia.

  2. Personally I think it’s more of a defensive act that people have. Anything that shakes their beliefs that they have had for so long, scares them.
    I’ve had people get angry at me when I was doing a detox. They are constantly coaxing me to eat, and get offended even when I’m doing something for my own body and health.

    It’s really strange.
    But I think you’re making a huge difference to the lives of many people, and we all have haters.
    Don’t let it get you down🙂

  3. Sad when “educated” people act like this…

  4. It’s very easy for this doctor to say that there is no scientific value to the so called “medical myths” that you preach about without backing up any of his claims. I’m sure if he were open-minded enough to try a detox program/alkaline water (or any of your other great suggestions for that matter) he would be singing a different tune🙂

    I find that highly educated people, like doctors, are arrogant in that they take great pride in their qualifications and achievements, and as a result they hate being told they’re wrong. At the end of the day, it really is his loss. You’ve helped so many people and continue to contribute to our community in such a positive way so just pay no mind to comments like these.

    @RogerBezanis ‘s “ph Madness” questions value of Alkalized water.

    As to detox, I heard a Nigerian College Math Professor who became overseer of a church denomination say, “In America””, all your demons have gone to college.”

    Science merely means knowledge, and a systemic study. All this guy knows is drug you, then cut it out, then bury you, then ‘Next!’

    Sadly, I suspect what bodybuilders call an overnight use of protein demanding a first thing protein load to avoid muscle loss, is actually their one-time a day detox.

  6. Alia,
    It’s been my experience that we have to be our own advocates. I research a lot and often a doctor does not know more than I do about certain subjects. Also, just b/c someone has a degree in medicine doesn’t mean the he/she is good at it! Very few people in medicine know how to treat the body, mind AND spirit. I think detox is good, in moderation and like that book said, taking into consideration each individual’s own personal health issues.

    Thanks for the interesting interviews and info.

  7. So where exactly then is the medical or any other research by anyone about detox and benefits of alkaline water? There is none. So get a life everyone. If you want to detox fine, it is your choice. But not all doctors are quacks and they know more about the human body than you ever will because they deal with an infinite number of cases on a daily basis. And what proof is there that alkaline water does have benefits? How do you know that the company isn’t using you to spread false information make tons of profits? This is the 21st century. You can make any claim you want and tons of people will fall for it.

  8. And by the way, as soon as that “slightly” alkaline water reaches the stomach, it turns acidic. With a PH of between 1 and 2 (go back to your chemistry books), that water has no chance, alkaline or not.

  9. Alia, well I should she must see you and seehow healthy you look , I need her comment about some doctors who advise their patient drinking a zero calories fizzy drinks does that sounds healthy , honestly I’m so impreSsed about ur ideas and discovers as well as ue experience , and ur so kind sharing it with all , keep it up alia , and to the doctor try it out and see the result u may change ur mind

  10. I never comment on blogs but reading the comments of Johndoe has just changed that.
    John, if you have any idea about the human body you wouldn’t be asking about a research for detox or alkaline water, you would KNOW how they worked with the body, but unfortunately some people have now come to only think the way they are taught to think which is not thinking at all instead of using their own brain and doing their own thinking.
    Your comments not only show ignorance and lack of understanding of the human body but most of all you show to be rude and lack respect. You are a danger to society.

    According to “your thinking” drinking alkaline water is of no value because it will be minimized by the hydrochloric acid of the stomach.

    That’s exactly the point John! You want to minimize the hydrochloric acid residues in the stomach!!!!

    Of course what you don’t explain is the biochemistry of the digestive system and especially the stomach. The facts are that for every molecule of hydrochloric acid produced in the stomach an equal amount of sodium bicarbonate is produced by the cover cells. The equation is as follows: NaCl + H20 + CO2 = NaHCO3 + HCL.

    The stomach pulls sodium, chloride, water and carbon dioxide to make sodium bicarbonate, an alkalizing compound with the waste product of hydrochloric acid.

    The stomach will always produce sodium bicarbonate to alkalize the food we eat or the liquids we drink to prepare the food and drink for biological transformation into stem cells in the crypts of the small intestine. The more acidic the food or drink the more sodium bicarbonate will be produced to buffer the acids of the food or drink. This of course leaves you with a belly full of acid which leads to all sorts of stomach disorders including the acidifying of the blood and then tissues.

    The stomach does not need to produce any sodium bicarbonate when we are eating or drinking alkalizing foods or alkaline drinks, including alkaline water.

    The key here to remember is this: the stomach is NOT an organ of digestion but an organ of contribution and its main contribution is to alkalize the food and drink we ingest.

    You want to drink electron rich alkaline water to neutralize or buffer the hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

    The stomach is NOT an organ of digestion but an organ designed to alkalize the acids from food and metabolism.

    Bottom-line the best thing you can do to support the stomach is to drink alkaline water with a pH 8 – 8.5. You will be preventing serious stomach disorders and preparing the food and drink for its ideal pH in the small intestine at 8.4 for biological transformation into stems cells in the crypts of the small intestine.

    My best advise is to drink at least 1 liter of alkaline water for every 25kgs of weight. You will be hydrating, alkalizing and energizing your body. There is nothing more important than drinking alkaline water other than the oxygen you breath.

    Alia, you are doing such a great job, you are a true healer and carer, you are passionate about health and unfortunately there are still people with this dying thinking. We can only pray for them and hope they forget the pharma teaching and start to really understand the body and how to work with it.
    I am a huge fan of alkaline water and have cured my Crohns disease by simply drinking Saka Natural Alkaline Water when I’ve tried everything “The Doctors”asked me to “try” and failed.

  11. I just had to add to this, I couldn’t resist.

    “And what proof is there that alkaline water does have benefits? How do you know that the company isn’t using you to spread false information make tons of profits? This is the 21st century. You can make any claim you want and tons of people will fall for it.”
    At the end of the day, they are selling water which you can’t live with out, I hope you can agree with me on this John.
    But please ask yourself the same questions about your drug company, do we really need drugs, or could it be that the drug companies are spreading false information to make tons of profits, I think my 11 year old knows the answer to that, I hope you start to that, after all this is the 21st century, Drug companies are making (false) claims and tons of people are falling for it, we see this very clearly here.

    And if the alkaline water has no affect with the stomach acid with 1 or 2 pH, then why would all the drugs you prescribe work with the acid, or are the medical drugs have special powers with this extreme acidity.

  12. Funny….I was just searching for a juice detox type diet and came across your page. You also had a video of Dr Shinya’s research which I was amazed at….so I then heard of this alkaline water (kangen?) Which I then reasearched as having no idea what it was or what was in it. I was totally sold by al the indfo I had read and asked myself why hadn’t I heard of this-why doesnt anyone talk of this. Then I came across an NBC type of broadcast explaining that it was all a lie and myth and money making sche

    • Money scheme…..well that is a lie. The whole production of drugs is a money making cash cow. They give u drugs to settle one symptom however causes another symptom. I did medicinal chemistry at uni and one thing I learned was to keep away from prescription drugs….
      How is it when u find a natural food or herb and it only can promote good health, somehow its turned around and is said to be a lie. Its all goverment order!
