Acid – Alkaline Balance For Optimum Health with Dr. Susan Brown

View descriptionShare

Donna is joined by Dr. Susan Brown who, in a highly informative previous episode, shared her specialist knowledge of preventing and treating osteoporosis. This time, they discuss a topic that not a lot of people know about – maintaining the right acid-alkaline in your body. 

They discuss why this is so important and how to measure your PH. Dr. Brown and Donna explain how to use the foods you eat to help yourself to maintain the right balance, in particular, the importance of magnesium and potassium. As well as covering the role stress plays in producing too much acid.


  • Maintaining the correct balance between acid and alkaline (PH) in our bodies is important for health.
  • Some areas of the body are meant to be more acidic than others e.g. the stomach is very acidic. But to be able to maintain the right balance in the right areas your body needs the right food, rest and lifestyle.
  • The first urine of the morning is a very good indicator of overall PH balance.
  • Try to stay very mineral rich during the day. You can do this using food.
  • Because of the hormones that are released when we are stressed we can easily become too acidic, which is why managing stress well is important.
  • Honey is a very powerful healing medicine.

‘I got interested in people who knew about how to regain that natural human potential for health. ´

‘Different compartments of the body have a different PH. ´

‘The best way to handle stress is to be absolutely grateful for everything. ´
