The Alkaline Cure

Lose Weight, Gain Energy and Feel Young

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A clinically tested 14-day plan to help you lose weight, look younger and enhance your overall health. 

Our bodies can be classified as either acid or alkaline. To be healthy, feeling good and functioning well, our pH reading should be either neutral or slightly alkaline, between 7.3 and 7.5. Unfortunately, the Western diet tends to result in much lower (acidic) pH readings, which are likely to leave us feeling tired, sluggish, bloated and generally unhealthy. Additionally, as we age, our bodies are likely to become more acidic, which can contribute to all kinds of issues, from osteoporosis to cancer. 

For more than 100 years the nutritional and lifestyle principles established by the Austrian physician F.X. Mayr, and presented here in The Alkaline Cure, have helped tens of thousands of people to lose weight, regain control over what they eat and feel better about themselves. There are no calorie counters or diet gimmicks—it's just a simple way of revitalizing your life by eating a healthier, less acidic diet, and establishing a positive balance between exercise  and rest. 

In The Alkaline Cure, you will learn the process of establishing your current acid–alkaline balance, discover a healthier approach to eating in general, learn which foods will bring about optimal acid–alkaline balance and follow a 14-day alkaline plan, including daily menus and a wide range of alkaline recipes to use both within the 14-day plan and beyond. 

A medically proven route to improved health, The Alkaline Cure contains everything you need to achieve and maintain more balance and vitality in your life.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 03, 2014 – First-time author Domenig takes a holistic approach to health and wellness in this exploration of how and why our bodies react to certain foods, both positively and negatively. The secret, he asserts based on the teachings of Austrian scientist Franz Xaver Mayr and his 1921 book, The Fundamentals of the Diagnosis of Digestive Illnesses is maintaining the proper acid-alkaline levels through diet, specifically in a 2:1 ratio, so that the digestive system functions at peak performance. Hit that perfect ratio and you'll reap a plethora of anti-aging and beauty-boosting benefits: weight loss and decreased bloating; increased brain function and bone strength; and improved immunity, mood, and vitality. Domenig states his case across six beautifully photographed sections, explaining the science behind, and basic principles of, alkalizing. He details the positive impact alkalizing can have on your physical health and psyche, identifies acid and alkaline food groups, and offers tips on setting up an alkalized kitchen. In addition, he provides a detailed, straightforward two-week program for immersing yourself in the alkalizing method complete with a chapter of recipes covering breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and including soups, salads, and spreads the titled cure. Domenig, a doctor and the medical director of the Original F.X. Mayr & More Health Center, offers a user-friendly plan that can be easily embraced.
