REBUTTAL: Alkaline Myth and Hype The Acid Alkaline Truth Exposed

By Dr. Bob McCauley, ND

Markus Rothkranz interviews James Sloan about how terrible Alkaline Ionized Water is to consume.  Lot’s of misinformation and innuendo get DEBUNKED here.  So many people have been mislead by this video.  They only talk about alkalinity and ONLY say bad things about it.

To be perfectly honest with you it boils my blood to hear http://watershed.net/Water-Ionizers/, the healthiest substance we can possible consume, described as snake oil and a scam.  The main reason is because this kind of thinking plants doubt into the minds of so many people that it leads them to the decision never to purchase a Water Ionizer, never to drink Ionized Water, and never to make a part of their daily lives.  To me, Ionized Water is the bread of life.  I thrive on it.  As you will see below, none of the detractors of Ionized Water have ever consumed it or bothered to measure it’s pH or ORP.  If they did, they would find Ionized Water to be the healthiest substance we can consume.

I am considered a “crank” by some, which is aptly defined by Mark Twain as “a person with a new idea until it succeeds.” Without fail, there are those who attempt to debunk great advances in every scientific field and Ionized Water is no exception.  Continental plate tectonics was ridiculed when it was proposed by Alfred Wegene in 1912.  Now it’s established fact.  The same will be with Ionized Water.  It too will one day become established fact taught in every school. Debunkers suggest that the ionization of water simply isn’t possible.  One debunker states that Ionized Water should be dismissed simply because it is too good to be true.  Others state that ionization is impossible to verify when in fact its properties are demonstrated using scientific measuring devices such as pH and ORP meters because the changes that ionization produce are radical, immediate and measurable.

Debunkers contend that most new health technologies developed outside of the traditional medical establishment are worthless and have no value beyond their hype.  They claim that nearly every unusual invention that doesn’t easily fit into the framework of conventional thinking turns out to be yet another urban myth that needs to be debunked.  And if something that they have denounced turns out to have merit, not another word is ever said about it and the debunker’s web page is quietly removed.

I have been hearing for years what a scam Ionized Water is.  I have heard it called “snake oil on tap”, yet no one has ever called for them to be removed from the market.  Alkaline Water, Alkalized Water, Kangen Water, Miracle Water, Micro Water, Ion Water, Ionic Water, Electron Water, Electrolyzed Water: It’s all the same.  Water that has been electrolyzed is most commonly called Ionized Water.  And for some reason there is a great deal of opposition to it.  Recently Dr. J. Mercola denounced Ionized Water.  Dr. Andrew Weil has also found some excuse to dismiss ionized water.  In fact, he did it twice.  I am not a “believer” in Ionized Water anymore than I am a believer that the world is round and not flat.  To have a belief Ionized Water and its positive effects on the health of those who consume it is a fact and not a “belief”.  It is a fact what ionization does to the pH, ORP and structure of water it ionizes.  I don’t have faith that raw fruits and vegetables are healthy for us, I understand it as a fact.  The same is true for Ionized Water.  I wrote the book on it.

MCT Oil – High Energy Muscle Builder

By Bob McCauley

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) are one of the fastest sources of fuel for body and brain.  Since it has fewer steps to convert into energy for the body than simple or complex carbohydrates it requires less energy to convert.

A byproduct of this is lauric acid, which has been proven through research to be effective in treating various health issues.  Coconut oil contains the highest levels of MCT oil.  However, the biggest difference between the two is that MCT oil is more concentrated and is entirely made of MCT oil.

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) are fats that are naturally found in coconut, palm MCT_Oiland other oils. Unlike long-chain triglycerides, MCT’s are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption.

MCT OIL - BACK PanelBecause LCTs are larger and more difficult to use, they are naturally stored in the body. MCTs are more easily absorbed and used by the body thanks to their smaller size. This makes MCTs a great, natural energy source, which helps with weight loss.

Are There Any Natural Ways To Increase Dopamine Receptor Density?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

Are there any natural ways to increase Dopamine receptor density?  Quora

My Response: 

I would recommend Magtein, Magnesium L-Threonate, which has been show to increase synapses in the brain. And Mucuna, which has L-dopa, which is precursor to dopamine production. Mucuna won’t increase receptor density that I know of, but I believe the activity would help stimulate further production of receptors.  Quora

REBUTTAL: Funny or Die – Why We Cant Be Healthy

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Somehow I was suppose to be embarrassed by this spoof since it shows that what we “believe” about health, and what is health, changes every 10 years.  Eggs are dangerous, eggs are healthy, no the egg whites are okay to eat, cholesterol is healthy, coffee is healthy, coffee if dangerous, meat is healthy, no it’s dangerous for our health, and on and on it goes.

Who confuses us with this nonsense?  The media is the number one culprit.  They are a hit and run operation regurgitating what the edicts and “research” that is presented.  However, there are 100,000 research papers published each year.  Which one is “found” by the media and presented to us on a golden platter?   Why, the one that will get the most attention, but that’s what the media is all about.

Is Spirulina Vegetarian?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Question on Quora:

Is spirulina vegetarian?   Quora  

My Reponse:

Yes, spirulina is grown 100% vegetarian, vegan, no animals orspirulina platensis animal by-products used in its production.  Magnesium, Potassium,  Nitrogen, Organic Acetic Acid are the inputs or ingredients that it grows in.  Growing spirulina is not terribly difficult, but you better know what you’re doing to get really good spirulina.  Chlorella is also grown vegetarian, vegan.  It is easy to grow and you need to open or crack the cell wall to get at the nutrients.  Quora

Dr. “Wizard of pHraud” Young – 3 Years Prison

Dr. Bob McCauley

Robert O. Young — who has no post-high school degrees from accredited institutions — was sentenced to three years in prison.  He had oversimplified the “extremely complex fields” of microbiology and hematology according to Superior Court Judge Richard Whitney, who oversaw Young’s case.

He offered pricey treatments he offered to seriously ill or dying patients, who in some robert youngcases were given intravenous fluids mixed with baking soda at $500 per treatment.

Commentary: This is one reason don’t “treat” people as a naturopath.  Rather, I advise them on how to be healthy.  I don’t have a clinic or a place for people to come and stay.  I explain to people how to be healthy and they either listen or they don’t.  Unfortunately, most don’t.  

robert young jailThe 65-year-old Young presented himself as a PhD and wasn’t. He’s someone whom I agree with on some things like alkaline water, but certainly not what he says in this interview. He went to jail for practicing medicine without a license, overcharging dying people. The guy sounds like a predator. Personally, I never cared for guy, but he is correct on lot he says about alkalinity and acidity. But his “controversial theories” didn’t land in prison. He’s a predator and from the sound of things he’s exactly where he belongs.

“I think where it all went very wrong is you became overly aggressive and overly confident in areas you just had no knowledge about,” Whitney said.   The judge said Young had “stolen time” from terminally ill people, including some who “were bilked out of tens of thousands of dollars.  I am hopeful that this will not repeat itself,” Whitney said.  San Diego Union

Commentary: I know one guy two paid $13,000 for ONE WEEK’s training on how to do live blood microscopy, and did not even get a diploma or certification of any kind.  

Deputy District Attorney Gina Darvas called Young the “Wizard of pHraud”.  That’s a good one.

He painted him as a charlatan who made money peddling pseudoscience to desperate, dying people. Darvas said Young’s degrees came from a nonaccredited “diploma mill” where Young went from a bachelor’s degree to a doctorate in about eight months in 1995.  San Diego Union

See you in a few years Doc.  Here’s my rebuttal to Robert Young – not a doctor and not a PhD – and his insane ideas about eating meat.  

Young has had legal troubles in the past in Utah. In 1995, he was arrested on two felony charges of practicing medicine without a license. He pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor, which was dismissed 18 months later under a plea deal. He was charged again in 2001, but the case was dropped.   San Diego Union

However, I am more likely to agree with Robert Young than Gabe Mirkin, M.D. and his ridiculous article Acid/Alkaline Theory of Disease Is Nonsense.  For one thing, it was published on Quackwatch.org.  I agree with next to NOTHING on Quackwatch.org, which ironically is full of quackery itself. I absolutely do not agree with Gabe Mirkin, M.D.’s article at all. Medical doctors know no more about human health and nutrition than anyone else who studies it.  Quackwatch.org is full of quackery and nonsense.

Why I Stopped Doing Live Blood Analysis

By Dr. Bob McCauley

I performed in many live blood analysis through the years.  I also did dry blood analysis.  It is absolutely fascinating to see the lies human body and then to determine through dry blood what your health history is and what your present state of health is.  Live blood analysis is very scientific well as dried blood analysis is much more interpretive and subjective of and analysis.  However, dried blood analysis results are absolutely fascinating and should not be ignored.

Several years ago I stopped doing live blood analysis completely.  Fear of the reasons for my sensation of this absolutely fascinating insight into human health.  You can look at someone’s blood under a microscope of 10 times for dried blood and 100 times for live blood analysis but in the end all that matters is their diet.

It is next to impossible to get someone to change their diet from them and they were released to whether the healthiest diet is, which happens if the a diet exclusively of raw fruits and vegetables. However people just absolutely refuse to change what they have learned from their parents and grandparents, those memories that have our psychological connections, to back of a healthy diet.

What are some best colleges in the world for naturopathy and alternative medicine?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Question on Quora:  

What are some best colleges in the world for naturopathy and alternative medicine?  Quora

My response: 

I attended the Trinity College of Natural Health in Indiana. I learned a lot. It took nearly 8 years and I had 39 classes total. It was very thorough. However, 80% of what I have learned about health has been through experience. I live the life I know will make me healthy. That’s all the matters.

You can study and study and review “studies” then argue and debate. What is their to debate? Either raw foods are healthier than cooked foods, or their not. You don’t need to be a mechanic to drive a car. You don’t need to become a ND or read studies to be healthy. You just need to eat the right things.    Quora

REBUTTAL: ZDOGGMD and Dr. Sinha – Cure Diabetes Through Diet or Medicine?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

ZDOGGMD and Dr. Sinha sat down for a discussion on Curing Diabetes with diet and medicine.  Dr. Sinha made some stunning statements in this video, a lot of them bolstering what I believe leads to GREAT HEALTH, and what does NOT.  If you come from the cooked food world, then all you have is guesses and conjecture and “studies”, endless studies that often contain conclusions that actually change from year to year, decade to decade.  Scientists are beginning to outsmart themselves.

A medical doctor discovers that diabetes can be “reversed” through diet. Some of us, like yours truly, might even use the word “Cured”. But a medical doctor probably wouldn’t use such a “loaded” word.
