Why your breakfast should be alkaline and gluten free

Posted on : 24-10-2013 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Uncategorized


What could be better than a morning full of sunshine? We open our body to fresh air and life energy. We find delight in the intoxicating fragrance of fresh herbal teas or coffees. The process of digestion starts already: our body produces digestive secrets in mouth and stomach in preparation to make use of the breakfast for the complete organism.

The body needs fuel for a day full of many challenges and tasks ahead of us. Using the vital ingredients of breakfast we make ready for these tasks. Eating a healthy breakfast we ensure that we stay the whole morning without fermentation and flatulence, but instead in a good mood, a clear mind and cheerful vitality in muscles and organs.

Especially the gluten is a major health problem for millions of people who suffer from allergies. Gluten rich breakfast is dominated by grain cereal or white or brown bread.
Unfortunately, this breakfast contains too much gluten, which “glues” together the protein of wheat grains. If we consume it over years and decades gluten blocks the finest capillaries and therefore hinders both the supply and the cleaning of our tissues, cells and organs.

Our smart organism likes to survive the increasing constriction of the vessels in increasing the blood pressure in order to supply itself with the necessary amount of blood: high blood pressure is created. This symptom is significant for older consumers of gluten breakfast.

Younger people also suffer from gluten allergy which is called celiac disease. Even in young children, symptoms like bloated stomach, abdominal pain and even growth problems, the so-called short stature, are well known.
The only remedy is the absence of gluten-containing diet. German Dr. Peter Jentschura discovered that the typical gluten breakfast with grain cereal or white or brown bread is also very acidic generating. This means that it does not help to balance the body’s natural need to keep its blood slightly alkaline (pH range of 7.25-7.35).

Also a diet consisting of sugar, red meat, white bread, black coffee, pops and milk has a very acidic generating effect on the body while an alkaline life style full of green organic vegetables, fruits, and anaerobic exercise has an alkaline forming effect in your body.

Dr. Peter Jentschura research found out that gluten free breakfast porridge on the basis of millet, buckwheat, amaranth, fruits, sweet almonds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds is alkaline generating. The porridge is quickly to prepare and easily digestible. Its numerous rich vital substances are highly absorbable.
Due to an acidic life style with lots of unhealthy gluten foods and stress most people suffer from mineral depletion. Each acid forming food/drink must be neutralized by the body with organic minerals. In order to re mineralize the body Dr. Jentschura developed a life food supplement made out of 100 organic and wild crafted healing herbs and plants.

Healing Skin Diseases with Alkaline Food + Life Style…

Posted on : 10-10-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Skin Diseases, Uncategorized Alkaline Foods


I received this question concerning skin diseases:
“Dear Stephan,
I have been using your products (Dr. Jentschura Alkaline Cure) for a few months and have recommended it to many people. A friend of mine who has psoriasis on her hands and feet is trying the salts and the tea.
When she soaked her feet in the Alkabath her feet felt great. This was on Friday evening.
She decided to soak her hands in the salts and her hands began to crack and bleed. She of course will continue to soak her feet and drink the tea, but what about the effect on her hands.
Could you comment on this for me.

Thank you for making such a product available in Canada.”

Thank you very much for your email!!!!

Your dear friend suffers from dry and damaged skin due to over-acidification and poisoning.

Since the skin on her hands is already quite damaged
actually the body tried to get rid of toxins and acids via bleeding in contact with the high alkalinity of Dr Jentschuras AlkaBath. (A side info: as babies we swim in amniotic fluid with the ph-level of 8.5 for 10 month and have super soft healthy skin. The same ph-level is created by Dr. Jentschura’s bath salts to pull out toxins and acids via the principle of Osmosis.)

The bleeding is painful and scary.

We recommend continuing purifying the body using the skin in daily long, long full and foot bath using Dr. Jentschura’s AlkaBath (also Dr. Jentschura’s Alkaline Stockings for overnight purification help very much).

But either avoid direct contact with the hands and the alkaline solution or treat the hands with organic olive oil before bringing them in contact with alkaline solutions. The saturated fat of the oil helps binding toxins and acids on the infected skin. After using olive oil she can wear our alkaline cuffs or thin cotton gloves soaked in alkaline solution and bigger gloves on top to keep her hands warm.

Absolute important is the change of diet: no more milk products, white flour products, coffee, sugar, red meet, etc. for a couple of month. Because her body is very clearly inviting a change!
Instead regenerate the body with greens: veggies and salats.
Of course we highly recommend MorgenStund, our highly alkaline morning porridge and Dr Jentschuras WurzelKraft, the best whole food dietary supplement made out of 100 herbs to flood the body with all vital substances. Or course any other top quality dietary supplement helps us getting vital substances. These are desperately needed to refill our mineral deposits and to boost our life forces again. WurzelKraft with its multitude of herbs also helps to realign the body and to get rid of cravings.

Generally speaking it is also very important to cleanse the colon because only a healthy, clean colon is able to absorb great food. (In Edmonton we recommend Solis Wellness)

We do not recommend the complete triple jump to health by Dr Jentschura for your friend. If your friend is already suffering from a skin disease she should wait with the cleansing jump for about 8 to 10 weeks. Dr Jentschuras AlkaHerb with 49 herbs is a fantastic cleansing tea which will help to release toxins and acids.
But since her organism is already suffering from large amounts of free floating, unbound toxins and acids, these have to be first bound and eliminated with lots of organic natural minerals.

My last invitation is also the saying: Love heals all!
This is the most important knowledge to share.
A deep commitment to move into love is crucial! Because this commitment will open up lots of good little steps into a good, healthy direction.

One of these steps could be to heal old childhood wounds which often subconsciously determine our life and eating choices. One healing path can be Cranio-Sacral Therapy. For Edmonton adresses please contact us…

Invitation to open lectures about Alkaline Foods at Planet Organic

Posted on : 10-10-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Uncategorized Alkaline Foods


We like to invite you to our open lecture at Planet Organic Edmonton South. Time: 15.October from 6.30 to 8.00 pm.

Second lecture will be in Planet Organic Calgary on the 29.October at 6.30 to 8.00 pm.

All about the alkaline life style…

Everybody speaks about the miracles that happen when you alkalize your body. What the truth about it? What is the difference between an alkaline or acidic life style and how does it affect our health?
We will speak about the different aspects and consequences of living the alkaline life style and discuss the following topics:
What deteriorates our health and wellbeing?
How to stay healthy and beautiful?
Organic vs. inorganic dietary supplements
Responsible pregnancy
Toxins and weight loss

The lecture will be held by Stephan Wilmes aka AlkalineDietGuy. Stephan is an Ayurvedic therapist.
As a young man I loved sports: in team sports I played soccer and basketball. In martial arts, I became German Heavyweight Boxing Champion and Second World Military Boxing Champion. After my professional sports career I finished my Business Degree at the University in Munich, Germany and received the Wacker Chemistry Price for the Best Diploma Thesis.
I am also a Ayurvedic Therapist and used to own the Ayurveda Wellness Center Munich. Knowing the powerful cleansing and healing effects of Ayurvedic Sciences, I really acknowledge the same beneficial value of applying the Dr. P. Jentschura Cure from Germany. The Jentschura cure seems to me more appropriate for our western civilization. That’s why we promote the cure in NorthAmerica.

My biggest hobby is my sweet family: Alice and my kids Linus, Finn and Lilly. In my spare time I am interested in fitness, books, movies and the mystery of life…

The Road Map For The Alkaline Diet with lots of Alkaline Rich Foods….

Posted on : 20-09-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Alkaline Life Style, Uncategorized Alkaline Foods


Conscientiously choosing to live the Alkaline Life Style is the first step into and towards a healthy and deeply fulfilled life.
But if you just say my goal is to loose 20 pounds to look nice in my new pants! This might not carry you very far!
Because loosing the pounds is kind of a shallow thing, you are not carried by a deep power. It will be most likely that you will kind of fight your cravings to loose the weight and perhaps make it but then most likely gain it again. Then try to loose weight and gain it again…. Very stressful!

But to deeply decide to change completely your life towards a better, sweeter and lovelier YOU.

That is just great! It might take some years and eventually get very painful inside because we get to be light in our darkest moments. That’s just awesome.

Then changing your life towards the Alkaline Life Style is simply good and fulfilling. There will be pitfalls and disappointments but that makes us just stronger!

So a deep and good commitment for the good is crucial!

On the physical level there are bricks which we need to build a new body for our new self. Painful aging can and will be stopped and replaced with aging in beauty and dignity without diseases and agony.

Dr. Jentschuras vision is that the human body is created to become 100-120 years old and then we will die in peace. Be responsible for the right choices now for in order to create a good and healthy future.

The choice is now to take care of and to invest in your body in order to be happy in your body for the next decades of your life! Instead of short term “fast food emotional satisfaction” lets go for deep soul fulfilling real food.

Lets start enjoy life, embrace life, breathe life!

Knowing that stress, anger and frustration create acid in our body we have to take care of soul food: meet lovely people, do Yoga, practice meditation, enjoy joyful action in mother nature!

If you do have deep childhood pain lets learn and love to forgive. Most human beings have covered their deep and dark pain in the lower stomach and hips area and are not even aware of it because we all long to be happy and therefore we try to do anything to get away from the pain. But the real way is the opposite: allowing and embracing the pain without indulging in it. A very good Cranio-Sacral Therapist can be of great help with this.

Dr. Jentschura’s triple jump to health and wellness is a great way to help your body to regenerate and heal itself: Alkaline Cleansing, Alkaline Purification and Alkaline Regeneration really works.

Alkaline Regeneration means to flood and therefor nourish the body with nano-size, organic minerals, vitamins and all vital substances. Change your diet: Go Green. Eat vegetables, green salad, fruits and herbs. Also enjoy dietary supplements like Dr. Jentschura’s WurzelKraft with 100 plants, to refill the mineral deposits (bones, skin, scalp, teeth, tissue) in our body which we robbed due to an over acid north american diet.

Alkaline Purification realizes the fact that the skin is our largest organ for cleansing and purification. Dr. Jentschura AlkaBath with 8 precious stones creates a high energy, high alkaline solutions for full and foot bath which pulls out all toxins and impurities via the principle of Osmosis. It is like a long bath in the ocean. Most people don’t know that as babies we bathe in alkaline solution for 10 month – amniotic fluid got a pH-level of 8.0-8.5 in a healthy mother’s womb.

Alkaline Cleansing uses the powerful cleansing abilities of herbal teas. Dr. Jentschuras AlkaHerb is made out of 49 herbs. But in drinking a very good cleansing tea you need to drink at least 1-2 liters of low mineralized water to help your body eliminate all toxins and impurities.

Knowing that most of you already take care of a good healthy nutrition we would like to encourage you to cleanse your colon. If you had a very bad diet over a long period you can eat the best diet. But your body is not able to absorb the nutrition if your colon is very polluted. We recommend hydro colon therapy but not 3 times a week but 1-3 times a month depending on your state of health. If you feel very healthy you can do even 3 cleanses a week but if you are not very healthy just do 1-2 in the first month.

Alkaline Foods and Alkaline Diet during Pregnancy

Posted on : 29-07-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Have a Good Pregnancy with Alkaline Foods, Uncategorized Alkaline Foods


Dear mother-to-be,

It is especially improtant for you to start your alkaline diet and really care about good organic alkaline foods!

Enjoy your pregnancy. Experience this pleasant time in the best of health and soon you will be holding a healthy baby in your arms. But remember, for the next few months you need three times the minerals you needed before you became pregnant.

single need = normal need for maintenance of your body
doubled need because of your missing periods (being a woman your body floods out lot of impurities once a month during the period; while pregnancy this cleansing is not available!!)
tripled need for the growth of your child

Each day take seven teaspoons or more of AlkaLife (Dr. Jentschura omni-molecular dietaty supplement made out of 100 plants), Spirulina or other super-greens spread out over the course of the day to maintain your own health and beauty and for the growth of your child.

You will not have your period for ten to twelve months. This is why you need a “substitute menstruation” for your metabolism. For this you should take alkaline full baths using AlkaBath. Your skin is the largest organ for purification. AlkaBath creates a high energy, high alkaline solution which pull out all acid impurities via the principle of Osmosis out of your body. My customers are soooo happy with AlkaBath. One Lady said with a big smile: It also opens all of my chakras. Please watch our testimonial video at www.YouInFocusProducts.com

Take alkaline foot baths often. Put alkaline compresses on your belly. At night wear Alkaline Stockings as often as possible. Your body and your child will thank you for doing so.

Avoid very acidic stuff: too much coffee, pops, etc.
Babies usually bath in 8.1-8.5 ph alkaline solution in their mothers womb. Depending on the mothers purity/acidity the ph-level goes down. Naturopaths see a correlation between the mothers purity and babies born with diseases. So, please mothers: stop smoking, stop drinking alcohol, stopp doing drugs, try to stop medication… give your little one’s the best start possible.

And try to avoid stress!!
Take time to start bonding with you little unborn: Start talking and caressing your baby. This is also so lovely for new daddies….

Daily regimen during pregnancy

Extensive alkaline hand and feet brushing
Dry body brushing in elimination direction
2-3 cups of 7×7 AlkaHerb and non-carbonated water
1 portion of MorgenStund´, Dr. Jentschura alkaline
1-2 tablespoons of WurzelKraft

During the Day
2-3 cups of 7×7 KräuterTee (7×7 AlkaHerb) and non-carbonated water
2-3 tablespoons of WurzelKraft
Full bath with MeineBase (AlkaBath) (once or twice a week)
Alkaline shower, peeling or alkaline wrap and aerobic exercise as often as possible

1 cup of 7×7 KräuterTee (7×7 AlkaHerb) and non-carbonated water
1-2 tablespoons of WurzelKraft
Alkaline foot bath with MeineBase

Alkaline enema once or twice a month

AlkalineStockings as often as possible

How Can I Stay Beautiful And Healthy with Alkaline Foods in my Alkaline Diet?

Posted on : 20-07-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Alkaline Foods and Alkaline Body Care


What is real beauty and health and what are the benefits of eating alkaline foods in an alkaline diet?

Physical health means that the cells, tissues and organs are free of acids, toxins and impurity deposits while at the same time having full vitamin and mineral reserves. Allowing these reserves to remain untouched for as long as possible is the best prerequisite for permanently staying healthy and beautiful.

If all cells, tissues and organs have a sufficient reserve of nutrient potential, they are then able to continuously regenerate themselves, defend against and eliminate toxic substances.

How can I stay beautiful and healthy?

Avoid all harmful things!

The primary prerequisite for long-lasting health and beauty is to reduce or, even better, avoid the acid-generating lifestyle habits previously mentioned (e.g. too much stress, excess exercise, acidic and acid-generating eating habits that include too much protein, animals fats, sugar and sweets, coffee, cigarettes, alcohol, fast food and additive-enriched, pre-processed foods) and replace them with an alkaline-generating, primarily wholesome vegetarian diet. For millions of years we have needed the nutrients of plants for our health and beauty.

Eat, drink and do beneficial things!

Through a primarily wholesome vegetarian and therefore mineral-enriched, alkaline-generating diet with lots of vegetables, some fruit and omni-molecular (complete) plant-derived foods, we can make sure that our bodies’ own mineral reserves remain well filled. This in turn ensures that our beauty and heath will be maintained for the long-term. Alen, Spirulina, Dr. Jentschura WurzelKraft and similar products are such kinds of omni-molecular foods derived from numerous plants. The great number of nutrients contained in these food products gave them their name: Latin omnes = all; all molecules = omnimolecular.

Drinking approximately 1 litre of non-carbonated water and ½ – 1 litre or more of herbal tea does a good job of thoroughly cleansing the human body and its elimination organs.

Stress can be balanced out for example through meditation, autogenic training, reading a good book or a relaxing walk. Excessive exercise can be replaced by yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates and stretching.

Discover the healthy balance between acids and bases for yourself, for “pleasure is in taking everything in moderation”. Low amounts of acids can be enjoyed if compensated with excess alkalinity. But you can and should balance out every excessive acidic pleasure with alkaline-generating foods and alkaline body care!

Eliminate all harmful things!

The diseases in modern society only develop because our naturally foreseen elimination organs are not capable of eliminating large amounts of acids, toxins and the neutral salts generated with the assistance of our body’s own minerals. Our body has no other option but to deposit toxins that cannot be eliminated. To regain or maintain health and beauty, “cleansing treatments” are recommended during which the acids and toxins are effectively eliminated with the help of the skin and mucous membranes, our other elimination organs, and which re-establish the acid-base equilibrium and successfully eliminate the deposited impurities.

Healthy compensating equalisers:

1 cup of coffee : 1 tsp. AlkaLife or a similar product + 1 glass of water

one small meal with meat : one large portion of vegetables or salad

excessive exercise : one alkaline full bath

one piece of cake : one alkaline footbath + 1 tsp. AlkaLife or a similar product

Life is all about balance!
Tip for the daily diet

80% alkaline-generating foods

20% acid-generating foods and beverages

How can I cleanse myself successfully with as little effort as possible?

With the “triple jump to purification” for successful regeration: Purification means removing deposited impurities from the skin and mucous membranes, from the cells, tissues, glands, joints and organs of the body. In three steps, purification has the following significance for our metabolism:
impurity deposits are dissolved into their components
loosened acids and toxins are metabolised
elimination occurs through the intestine, kidneys and mucous membranes

By both internally and externally carefully preparing for the “triple jump to purification” you can avoid any possible initial signs of excessively straining the body and the familiar initial worsening or healing crises. Perhaps you have already had a similar experience during fasting or during a cleansing or purification regimen. The “triple jump to purification” must therefore be carefully planned in order to successfully loosen, metabolise and eliminate years of deposited impurities without discomfort. This sensible preparation is all the more necessary the more contaminated, built-up or sensitive the body is. The preparation consists of two important steps:

1. The body’s neutralizing and metabolizing potential is omni-molecularly optimised through a wholesome vegetarian diet and omni-molecular foods.

2. Alkaline body care allows many acids and toxins to be eliminated through the body’s fluids. This occurs with alkaline full baths and footbaths, with alkaline compresses, rinses, etc.

The chief commandment for purification is:

“The more acidic built up and sensitive the body is, the more careful you must prepare for the purification process!”

What Deteriorates Our Health And Beauty – the Lack Of Alkaline Foods

Posted on : 20-07-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Uncategorized Alkaline Foods


We want to take a close look what happens in our body if we don’t eat alkaline foods:

Our blood needs to keep its alkalinity…

Our blood connects the 100 million cells in our body to make up a meaningful whole. For its many diverse functions, blood requires an alkaline pH value between 7.35 and 7.45. Only within this alkaline range blood flows optimally, nourishes cells and keeps the body cleansed.

All of our foods and drinks have either alkaline or acid generating effects in our bodies.

Due to our modern fast food and living civilisation most of the food we eat barely deserves to be called “nourishing”. It is often mass-produced, pre-cooked, frozen or pre-processed in one or another way. The ingredients in these products often originate from monocultures grown in impoverished soil. These types of foods lack essential nutrients and do not provide us with the vital energy that we need. This lack of nutrients especially minerals causes the fact that most of our food is acid generating…

What deteriorates our health and beauty?

Harmful amounts of acids and toxins are accumulated in our bodies. Alkaline neutralizing nutrients in the form of natural, energy-rich minerals and trace elements are barely even contained in processed, concentrated foods, and are instead replaced by horrendous amounts of “empty” calories. The following overview shows just a few typical acid-inflated, nutrient destroying foods, drinks and energy-consuming behaviour:

Meat and meat products Uric acid
Pork Sulphuric and nitric acid
Sweets,Sugar, White flour products Acetic acid
Artificial sweeteners Formic acid
Soft drinks Phosphoric acid
Coffee, black tea, red wine Tannic acid
Pain relievers Acetylsalicylic acid
Physical overexertion Lactic acid
Stress, anger Hydrochloric acid

One of the chief principles of metabolism is keeping the pH value of blood and the balance between acids and bases stable.

If the pH-value of blood drops by the slightest amount, then the blood will become thicker and clotted (the coin rolling phenomenon of red blood cells). The functions of providing the cells with oxygen and nutrients as well as of removing and eliminating toxins are impaired. Acids, toxins and other harmful substances then build up in the body.

The acid-base regulation risks losing its balance. It is the basis for all metabolic processes and functions in the body, as e.g. hormones, enzymes and our immune systems cannot function in an overly acidic environment. The human body reacts to decreases in pHvalues with the following symptoms:

1. Structural damage

An excess of acids and toxins deteriorates our cells, tissues and organs, as well as our joints and bones. The observed deterioration is often accompanied by inflammatory processes, such as e.g. tonsillitis, gastritis or diabetes. Acids and toxins threaten to bring our vital acid-base equilibrium out of balance. In order not to be deteriorated and destroyed by acids and toxins, our bodies neutralize them with the help of energy-rich, alkaline-generating vitamins and minerals. Due to an excess of acids and toxins and the lack of nutrients in foods today, the body must often consume or depend on its own mineral reserves. Acids and toxins consume the mineral reserves in our skin, hair, teeth, joints and bones and, with results such as hair loss and osteoporosis, also have negative effects on our health and beauty.

2. Elimination

Neutral salts result from neutralizing acids and toxins with the help of alkaline-generating minerals. However our usual elimination organs (kidneys, intestine and lungs) cannot simply eliminate large amounts of acids and toxins or the resulting neutral salts as they please. Each of these organs has a very specific elimination function as well as capacity which cannot be exceeded due to an existing protective mechanism, as it would then lead to the deterioration, contamination and salinisation of these organs.

Skin problems – in order to prevent that from happening, the human body increasingly takes care of elimination through the skin. However the skin does not have a natural protective mechanism. Depending on the sensitivity or concentration and aggressiveness of the acids and toxins, the skin becomes excessively stressed and irritated. Signs of this include body odour, sweat, pimples, acne, eczema, furuncles, neurodermatitis, psoriasis, allergies and stasis ulcers.

Fungi and yeasts – The acidic or even toxic environment on the skin and mucous membranes resulting from elimination creates ideal conditions for the growth of skin and nail fungi as well as intestinal and vaginal yeasts. They start to grown in areas with acidity levels between pH 3.5 and pH 5.5. The growth of yeasts and fungi are both the results and symptoms of an overly acidic and contaminated body. In natural medicine, fungi and yeasts are referred to as so-called “acid and toxin eaters”. They will disappear once the acidic environment of the skin, their ideal feeding grounds, is corrected by alkaline-generating nutrients on the inside and alkaline-cleansing on the outside.

3. Deposition of impurities

Our bodies neutralize acids and toxins that cannot be eliminated through the kidneys, intestine, lungs or through the skin and mucous membranes with minerals, turning them into neutral salts. Since they can only be eliminated to a certain extent, the body must store them as residue bound to water and fat. For many women these residue deposits come in the form of cellulite, e.g. on the upper thighs, bottom and hips. “Gout” is a result of uric acid calcium deposits after years of consuming too much animal protein. Other deposits can manifest themselves as rheumatism, gallstones, kidney stones or bladder stones, lipoma, fibroma, etc. Not drinking enough fluids, lack of exercise, poor circulation and low body temperature promote the depositing of impurities. Over-acidity can manifest itself in different ways. Look for yourself: Many signs of over-acidity or contamination can be seen externally, i.e. on the face and head, on our skin and mucous membranes. Hair loss, pimples, sweating, itching, fungi and yeast infections, liver spots, etc. are unmistakable signs of contamination, acidification or residue deposit build-up.

The desposition of impurities takes place according to the “Hierarchy of Vitality”, which has been studied by Dr. Peter Jentschura and Josef Lohkämper. It first occurs in fat tissue, then in connective tissue, then in the muscles.

If these “depositories” are full, then additional build-up can occur in the joints, fibrous capsules and in the kidneys, bladder and gallbladder, and subsequently in other organs, finishing in the heart and brain. Because the hands, feet, knees, ankles and knuckles as well as the neck and shoulder area have lower temperatures than the mid-region of the body, residue is deposited in these peripheral spots first. The least water-soluble salts, such as uric acid, oxalic acid and tannic acid salts are deposited first.
