Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    This guy needs to take a class in physiology. Talk about spreading myths just to sell a book . . .

    What is the normal pH of blood, urine, and saliva?

    “The measure of acidity of a substance is known as pH. Pure water, which has pH of 7, is neutral. Substances with a pH less than 7 are considered acidic and substances with a pH of greater than 7 are considered basic.

    The normal pH of blood running through arteries (large elastic-walled blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to other parts of the body) is 7.4; the pH of blood in the veins (vessels that transports blood to the heart) is about 7.35. Normal urine pH averages about 6.0. Saliva has a pH between 6.0 and 7.4.”

    $47 for a raw food book? Is this a joke? Come on Kevin, stop promoting this overpriced stuff.

  5. Antonio says:

    The best point Juri made was about sustained healthy eating that will automatically help you recover from workouts. Start with the foundation … always.

    What’s your opinion on fruit/Fructose. Gabriel, Avocado, Mercola all still say low fruit is better. Curious what you think. Thanks!

  7. QC says:

    Tons of fruits and vegetables!!!

  8. ryan says:

    what’s up with the first comment? i just watched the video and don’t recall him saying anything about blood ph that contradicts the basic info on ph that the commenter pasted from wikipedia.

    and for the commenter who is a little skeptical of yuri because of his hair loss: correct me if i’m wrong, but i have never seen any claims about male pattern balding being caused by nutrition, or lack thereof. isn’t a hereditary issue?

    i don’t have connection to yuri by the way; never heard of him until now.

    I know I feel better when I eat more alkaline-forming than acid-forming foods. And high-raw helps a lot.
    More and more often, I am eating some protein and veggies before my workout–about 1/2 hour before.
    The exercise gets my metabolism up so I use the carbs as I digest them, the proteins are available within an hour or two or three, for recovery; and I am learning to not over-eat by considering what activities I am going to be doing for the next hour or so.
    The book THE 4 HOUR BODY by Timothy Ferriss, talks about this technique.
