The idea is that by doing this diet it restores the PH levels of our bodies to where they should be and thus promotes natural healing. After reading the book the concept and idea do seem to make sense, and in the least it can't hurt her more. After all she will be eating veggies mostly.
We put off the start to this for months for various reasons, probably because we knew how labor intensive this would be, and as the guy in the grocery store told me "you have to be desperate for this because it is not easy at all." Well we are desperate, so today is day 1 of our pH Miracle trial.
Step one is a 10-14 day "cleanse" where it is almost completely juice, and will be by far the hardest part. After that you continue juicing but also add salads and other things into the diet.
I am not going to tell you that I will post every day on how it is working, as it won't be an overnight thing, but I will keep the blog updated on how it is going.
For those that want to know what we are using for our juicing and where to find this book, or want to get it for juicing here are the Amazon links:

What do you think of our plan here? Any thoughts or ideas regarding good (non fruit) juicing recipes?
P.S. - I will also be "trying" to do this diet as much as I can with her. It will be even harder for me because I work in a restaurant and will not be able to do it when I work there all day. But I am going to try, and maybe it will help my back pain that I've been having a lot of.
