"For over 30 years, we have researched the benefits and effects that lifestyle and nutrition have on ones health and fitness. With more than 40,000 case studies throughout the years, we have discovered that the pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body.


Fatigue is probably the major symptom suffered by an overly acidic body. Toxins produced in an acidic body reduce the absorption of protein and minerals, which in turn weakens the body's ability to produce enzymes and hormones. This also interferes with the reconstruction of cells and other necessary components of energy production. The result is fatigue, poor endurance, an inability to add muscle tone and general weakness. To abolish fatigue and become the energetic person you want to be, begin by alkalizing with greens drinks like Doc Broc Power Plants and drinking alkaline water from one of the excellent water ionizers available through our online stores.


Extraordinary health and fitness can be achieved and maintained through an alkaline lifestyle and diet and we are very excited to spread the news and share this vital information with the world. Whether wanting to improve your health, lose weight or simply have more energy there is a wealth of knowledge made available in our recently redesigned blog (click here to visit) where you can find FREE healthy recipes, educational videos and scientific articles on topics like cancer, diabetes, lupus, lyme's disease, arteriosclerosis, stroke, heart disease, liver disease, leukemia, live and dried blood cell analysis lifestyle, diet, exercise and nutrition.

Throughout his career, his research has been focused at the cellular level. Having a specialty in cellular nutrition, Dr. Young has devoted his life to researching the true causes of "disease," subsequently developing "The New Biology™" to help people balance their life.







In 1994, Dr. Young discovered the biological transformation of red blood cells into bacteria and bacteria to red blood cells. He has since documented several such transformations.


Dr. Young's research has been published in several noted journals, including The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. (Sympathetic Resonance Technology, Scientific Foundations and Summary of Biologic and Clinical Studies, Dec. 2002, Vol. 8, No. 6: 835-842.) .

He also currently works with a team of research scientists at the University of Puerto Rico, as well as the Center of Diabetes in Puerto Rico, on a potential cure for Type I and Type II diabetes.


Before Dr. Young began his extensive nutritional research, his love for sports and science led him to play tennis at the University of Utah —where he studied biology and business in the early 70's. There he was granted a full athletic scholarship for tennis. His team was consistently one of the top 10 in the nation. He had the experience of competing with the likes of Stan Smith, Jimmy Connors, and Roscoe Tanner.


In the 80's, following his schooling at the University of Utah, Dr. Young studied medical microbiology—training under Dr. Robert Bradford at the Bradford Research Institute in Chula Vista, California ( Dr. Bradford is now a trustee and professor at Capital University in Washington, DC, where he teaches live and dry blood microscopy ( Dr. Young also studied darkfield microscopy under Dr. Maria Bleker—who was the prodigy of the great late biologist, Dr. Gunther Enderlein—in Essen, Germany.


In 1993, Dr. Young received a MS in nutrition from the American College in Birmingham, Alabama. In 1995, he received his D.Sc. with emphasis in chemistry and biology. Dr. Young's doctoral dissertation was on Disseminated Intravascular Blood Coagulation and Pathological Blood Coagulation. In 1997, Dr. Young received a Ph.D. from Clayton College of Natural Health. His Professor, James E. Harvey from San Diego State University, reviewed and accepted his dissertation as completing all the requirements for a doctorate of philosophy degree in nutrition. Continuing his studies and research, Dr. Young later received an additional doctorate degree in naturopathy (ND) from Clayton College (1999).


Dr. Young is a member of the Farm Bureau (Membership number C118341) as well as a recognized certified Avocado grower by the California Avocado Commission.


Dr. Young is a member of the American Society of Microbiologists, the American Naturopathic Association, an honorary member of the Dr. Robert O. Young Connecticut Holistic Health Association, the Presidents Council at Brigham Young University, a consultant for InnerLight, Inc., and an advisor to Dean Lawrence Carter at the Martin Luther King Chapel at Morehouse College. He was honored with his wife, Shelley Redford Young, by Professor Lawrence Carter at Morehouse College and inducted into the collegium of scholars as well as placed on the advisory board. Professor Carter made this statement about Dr. Young's work:


"With eight books on the market, Dr. Robert O. Young and his wife, Shelley Redford Young, have established themselves as the preeminent scientific researchers on how to balance the body chemistry and achieve one's ideal weight. Every African American and African Caribbean, every person suffering from type I and type II diabetes, hypertension, cancer, AIDS, heart disease and youth obesity, and every person reared on 'soul food' needs to discover The pH Miracle and the rejuvenating recipes that alkalize and energize an over acidified diet.


"I have made this revolutionary dietary paradigm shift an official part of my professional ministry because it eliminated my acid reflux without prescriptions and reduced my weight by 50 pounds in less than two months. This reduction in weight greatly speeded reduction of my PSA level after seeds-implant treatment for low-grade prostate cancer. Dr. Young's non-violent peace diet is the natural scientific solution for a healthy body that is free from the warring of excess acidity. With Dr. Young's new biology and nutrition program, pastors and congregations will rediscover the miraculous link between nutrition, health and spirituality."


- The Reverend Dean Lawrence Edward Carter Sr., Ph.D.;Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel;Gandhi Institute for Reconciliation; Founder, Gandhi, King, Ikeda Legacy of Building Peace Exhibition; Morehouse College, Atlanta, Georgia.


Dr Young has been the keynote speaker at medical and health gatherings all over the world and appeared as a guest on many national radio and television shows. He and his wife appeared on CBS's The Early Show. Some of his most notable accomplishments include: developer of a new theoretical paradigm called the Mycozymian Theory; pioneer in the research of a biological process called Pleomorphism; and the discoverer of the etiology of diabetes, cancer, atherosclerosis, and many other diseases.


Dr. Robert Young has devoted his career to the discovery of the missing pieces necessary to complete the larger picture of excellent health.

As an extraordinary lecturer, book author, nutrition and culinary consultant, Shelley Young is a vital part of the heartfelt mission to diminish suffering in the world. Her work provides the practical application of the alkalizing principles contained in the research of her husband, Dr. Robert O. Young. By providing appropriate tools and knowledge, Shelley is empowering people to take their health into their own, proactive hands. Her knowledge of the effects of diet on health matters extends beyond her expertise as an author and chef. She is also a Licensed Lymphatic Massage Therapist (LMT) and is trained in microscopic procedures.


With a deep awareness of the dangers of the present-day acidic diet and its relationship to the epidemic of various diseases such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer in both adults and especially children, she is forever looking to find the most creative ways to make an energizing and alkalizing diet more appetizing, delicious and attractive to the masses. As a result, she has authored two recipe books: Back to the House of Health: Rejuvenating Recipes to Alkalize and Energize for Life! and Back to the House of Health 2. She also co-authored with her husband, Dr. Robert O. Young, four other books: Sick and Tired? Reclaim Your Inner Terrain,The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health, The pH Miracle for Diabetes: The Revolutionary Diet Plan for Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetics, and The pH Miracle for Weight Loss.


Shelley realizes that when faced with changing our diet and lifestyle, one of the first things we want to know is, “what can I eat?” Therefore, as a master alkalarian chef—as she is being called by her fans—she shares her delicious alkalizing vegetarian recipes and teaches alkalarian food preparation.


Shelley Young’s knowledge of the effects of diet on our health extends beyond her expertise as a book author and chef. As a licensed lymphatic massage therapist (LMT) and trained microscopist, Shelley lectures on the lymphatic system and its important role in the body. She is acclaimed for her seminars on how emotions affect our pH balance, as well as her presentations on the latest nutritional research. Both are popular events at the pH miracle retreats that she and her husband host at their beautiful avocado ranch—Rancho Del Sol(Ranch of the Sun)—in Valley Center, California.


Her astonishing reputation brought her not only teaching jobs at the Women’s College in Beijing, China, but also an invitation to serve on a team of scientists and nutritionists as an invited member to NASA’s mission to Mars. The team will develop dietary recommendations for the astronauts in order to prevent osteoporosis and other health imbalances during space missions. A public figure, Shelley Redford Young has appeared on TV, been a keynote speaker at Tony Robbins’ Life Mastery events. Shelley is also a member of the InnerLight Foundation Association of Microcopists and has trained under the direction of Dr. Young in all aspects of The New Biology™.


Shelley Young has been influenced greatly by John Robbins’ book Diet for a New America and is an advocate of healing through a properly balanced way of eating, living, and thinking. Always coming from the heart, she believes that healing should be available and affordable to all, especially children. Conscious of the effect of poor nutrition on children, she has become an activist in influencing schools to improve school lunch programs and to promote better health through an alkaline diet. Because she feels so strongly about educating the next generation, she has created two alkalarian heroes for children: Doc Broc and the AvoRado Kid. These characters are delighting children in the picture book called Doc Broc and the StoneHinge Cave Adventure, which Shelley has written and illustrated together with her son Adam Young.


Along with her husband, Dr. Robert O. Young, Shelley Redford Young is Co-Founder of InnerLight, Inc., and The InnerLight Biological Research and Health and Education Foundation. This Foundation is committed to assisting people who are dealing with debilitating diseases. The Youngs established the foundation in order to provide valuable healing information and to share Dr. Young’s research with the world. Their extracurricular projects include a double-blind research study at the University of Miami on curing diabetes as well as applying their research to treat the wild animals at Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Arizona.


Shelley Redford Young is the mother of four children. An artist and illustrator, she has studied art at the Watt’s Atelier in Encinitas, California, where she focused on the human figure and illustration.
