Re: Anthony Robbins
I am not sure if you are referring to the same things .. but saw an informercial for some kind of green thing to supposedly alkalize your body as a cure for just about everything. Vitamins, supplements, herbs, and alternative medicine have many great products that do very real things and cure very real illnesses, but there is always science to back it up. It is not magic, it is the interection of chemicals in those items with chemicals in your body that cause a measurable effect. Remember, even Penicillin is in some sense a 'natural remedy' as it is a byproduct of a certain kind of mold.
The point is that there is very little science to back up how the very strong claims made by acid/alkaline readings in your body. There is probably some credance to it, but it is not as grave as made out to me.
Which brings me to my point ... if this is the same green thing I saw on the infomercial, the science given on the program itself is off-the-wall ... literally. The 'doctor' says that his item makes the body more alkaline, thereby allowing the cell walls to be less rigid and allow nutrients to pass through. The problem is that the cells in your body do not have cell walls nor are they rigid.
The product you are talking about ... and even the one I allude to here if they are different .. may be very nutritious. They may be very good to you. But I would be careful to believe everything you read when it comes to supplements. I do not know too much about Anthony Robbins so I can not judge him either way ... but be careful out there .... there are still many many snake oil salesmen out there!
