The principle of balance is not new. It forms the foundation of both Eastern and Western philosophies, from Aristotle to Confucius. As it relates to health, it has been around just as long, from the development of traditional Chinese medicine to the treatments used by Hippocrates and Galen. What is new, however, is a scientifically based application that can improve numerous disorders and maximize your health.
Imagine that the human body has an internal mechanism that keeps two basic types of chemicals — acid and alkali — in balance. When your body becomes either too acidic or too alkaline, you become susceptible to a host of disorders. When balance is restored, however, so is your health. In this brilliant book, renowned health expert Alex Guerrero explains how you can become well — now and for an extended lifetime — by restoring your pH balance. The author first describes how you can assess your health. He then provides a plan, including a fourteen-day diet and a simple program of supplements, that will bring your body back into balance. You’ll even find a selection of recipes that will tempt your taste buds as you reclaim your health and well-being.
Here is a book that will quickly capture the imagination of all those looking for a drug-free way to feel better. In Balance for Life offers an effective, easy-to-follow program that is bound to shake up your beliefs about your own body, and about the steps you can take to maintain or regain your well-being.

Today, it is practically impossible to go anywhere without hearing about how our country is facing a health crisis of major proportions—the prices of drugs are skyrocketing; millions of citizens go without health insurance; and a third of our population already suffers from some form of degenerative disease. While our politicians, economists, and health experts argue about how best to face this problem, few, if any, seem to have any realistic long-term solution.
There is, however, an answer. It is a solution that isn’t complicated, doesn’t require billions of tax dollars, and doesn’t need a giant bureaucratic overseer. The answer is . . . good health. If fewer people needed pills to lower blood pressure, decrease cholesterol levels, or stimulate their love lives, think about the impact it would have on our health-care system. If fewer people suffered from the severe pain of arthritis, rheumatism, and other degenerative diseases, think how much emptier doctors’ offices would be. And if the incidence of cancer started to drop sharply, consider how much less sorrow and grief there would be in our lives.
The sad truth is that health is something the majority of people in this country are lacking. The incidence of chronic illness is at an all-time high. Just as alarming, even among people who don’t have any obvious symptoms of disease, lack of energy seems to be epidemic. Certainly, it is the number-one complaint among my clients, as well as the clients of my colleagues. Yet, paradoxically, at no time in history has such a wealth of health information been available to us, as evidenced by the abundant supply of books, newsletters, magazines, seminars, and websites all devoted to providing health information. So why are we so unhealthy as a nation? And, more importantly, what can be done about it?
That’s what this book is all about. I wrote it to answer these questions, and to empower you with all the information you need to reclaim and maintain your health and vitality, now and for the rest of your life. After years of careful research, study, and observation, I can say with absolute confidence that the solution to this country’s health problems does exist and that it can be summarized in one word—Balance!
Our bodies are designed to be healthy. This is a scientific fact. Regardless of your current state of health, if you follow my easy-to-use system for restoring and maintaining the balance your body requires for optimal health, I guarantee that you will experience a noticeable difference in how you feel. This is a bold claim, to be sure, but I make it with confidence, because each day, I witness how clients suffering from every conceivable malady experience dramatic improvements in their health after implementing the very principles you will discover in this book. Even if you are already healthy, these principles can help you, just as they have helped the world-class and professional athletes who consult me every day.
In the pages that follow, you will learn not only how your body works, but also how you can begin to move it from a state of degeneration and fatigue to a state of regeneration and vitality. You will also learn about the number-one key for doing so—proper acid-alkaline balance, also known as the pH Factor.
The information I will be sharing with you is not new. In fact, the principles that support it have been scientifically verified time and time again by researchers throughout the world. For the most part, however, they remain all but ignored by conventional and alternative health-care providers alike. As a result, our society is increasingly burdened with health-care problems.
Fortunately, the principles presented in this book are easy to understand, and even easier to implement. By applying them to your daily life, you will be taking back control of your health and starting down the road to optimal vitality.
