Yea, I completely hear you on the acid/alkaline balance. I’m not necessarily sold on it either, but I really do feel better when my urine PH is in a good range. I played around with it for a long time (before reading Dr. Brown’s work) but my urine/salivary PH never seemed to reflect my food intake. What actually helped was a water alkalizer (I know, I know; and I’m not recommending anyone go out and buy one), and taking alkaline minerals which I probably should have been taking anyway (calcium, magnesium, etc.).
I actually haven’t looked at her website in years, but it used to be far more encompassing then just acid/alkaline balance. She looked at nutritional status, supplements, exercise, stress levels (high cortisol will often make the best of us pee out our bones, apparently), etc. She also really tries to figure out the cause of bone loss; she never looks at it as, “Oh, well, you should just take drugs and be done with it.” She believes in bone quality, not just quantity, and recommends specific medical tests to try and figure out if you’re currently losing more bone than you’re building (obviously a DEXA scan cannot tell you that).
Let me know if I can be of any more help. If her website is not informative enough, she does phone consults which could be helpful for your specific concerns.
