Testimonial:  My experience at your home was beyond inspiring, I am so grateful for all of your insights, your vast knowledge, and the fun interactions between you and Andrea, you do make a perfect team! I have just finished my avocado carob pudding, and have enjoyed salads, smoothies, and veggies for all of my meals. Even after these few 5 days my energy has greatly increased, and I do feel light on my feet, and my skin is glowing from the oils! How amazing is it that these connections happen ! Thank you again !  Joni

Testimonial:  Thanks so very much once again for the weekend! It was so nice to see what had been in the planning stages materialize into such a wonderful offering. You two work extremely well together and you come across as a great team with integrity and passion – very professional yet warm and nurturing. I learned a lot and was motivated to continue. In fact today I had some solid food and it felt like too much – I got too full! With gratitude, Marilyn 

Testimonial: Thank you again for your knowledge, kindness and generosity of spirit. I loved the Liquid Feast and the time at your home/center. The practitioners were wonderful!! And guess what – I am feeling better and got on the scale and lost close to 10 lbs in 4 days – wow!  -Rosemary Nichols

Testimonial: I learned more in 3 days at LipHe Balance than I did in 5 days (x2) at Canyon Ranch! And it was a better value! This experience really inspired me to treat myself better! Barbara has found the “best of the best” in terms of products, services and resources. Her passion to move everyone to a better, healthier place is contagious but not obnoxious. She and her team help you to enjoy the journey to a healthier you! Lynne Marino Financial Advisor

Testimonial: No matter where you are on your journey of wellness, nutrition and healthy eating, you can learn and benefit from the “Liquid Feast” program. For me personally “The Liquid Feast” left me feeling like a “reset” button had been pushed, allowing me to find my own healthy balance with diet, nutrition and exercise. I was given the tools to recharge and revitalize my body, feeling more energized and alert within days of starting the program. Not only are the three facilitators (kudos to them!) extremely knowledgeable on the subjects of nutrition, alkalinity vs. acidity, diet, healthy recipes, exercise, and many topics related to the mind/body connection, but they are genuinely nurturing and deeply interested in assisting one in having a more balanced and healthy lifestyle. I have already incorporated many learnings into my daily routine: eating more consciously and deliciously, drinking more (and ph balanced) water, and having more awareness around nutritious life and health affirming foods. Thank you Barbara, Andrea and Laura for your commitment to emotional, physical and spiritual health. Anthony S.

Testimonial: For the last 40 years of my life I have felt over-stressed, drained of energy, emotionally shot and over-weight. I tried every diet, pills, junk food that I could to feel better and nothing worked. However one conversation changed my life, when I met Barbara while sitting in yet another doctor’s office. She told me about the blood cell analysis and the cleanse she was doing the following week so I signed up right there and then. After a few days of feeling less than crummy I began to get my energy back and after a few exercise sessions with Laura began to sleep better at night and feel a whole lot less stressed. I know I still have a ways to go but I know I am on the right path. With the support of the Liphe Balance Staff I feel I am finally getting somewhere and have even lost 15 stubborn pounds in the process! I highly recommend this program to anyone who really wants to improve and who is tired of being sick and tired. With Love and Appreciation, Karen

Testimonial: During Barbara’s liquid feast I lost 13 lbs!! It just showed me how “sick” my body was. Once I followed Barbara’s guidelines and suggestions and turned my acidic body into an alkaline body, it just released all the toxic weight it was carrying. I’ve incorporated Barbara’s recipes, suggestions for overall care for my body and some of her supplements into my daily regimen and have never felt better. It’s amazing! Most of all though, Barbara was with me every step of the way. She is so caring. Within moments of any question I emailed her she responded. She never let me down. I cannot thank the Liphe Balance center enough for all they do!! I will continue to have them in my life as my journey to better health continues – they are too much of an amazing asset not to have on my team guiding me! Sincerely, Jen M.

Testimonial: You’d be proud of me…I attended a reception at someone’s home last night that was catered with champagne, wine, Perrier and hors d’oeuvres (luckily not a sit-down dinner). I had: Perrier, celery sticks, red and yellow pepper strips, and asparagus spears. I declined the turkey, salmon, sausage and cheese sticks. I’m sure no one noticed or thought anything of it if they did. The most amazing part is how easy it was, how I wasn’t even tempted by the other things and how satisfied I felt with what I ate. Can this really be me??? You and Barbara are doing a good job! M.S.

Testimonial:I am so very grateful for all your incredible kindness and unbelievable generosity! I can’t wait till I can come up again and be with you and Ana. And Ana – my gosh, I will never know how she does it.Amazing woman. Thank you, from the very bottom of my heart. You have brought me back to life, and for that I can never thank you enough. Warmest hugs and love, Deborah D.

By Andrea Candee, MH, MSC

I experienced one of the most healing programs I have ever done, and believe me, I’ve done plenty! It was at the Liphe Balance Center in Weston, CT. I had been suffering for several years with joint pain and fatigue from an autoimmune response to a spider bite…to the point that I was limping and hip replacement and hand surgery were recommended (the cartilage in my hand and hip had deteriorated). I tried over a dozen natural therapies to little avail. When I participated in the Center’s Liquid Feast, my joint pain (everywhere) ceased, my energy levels went sky high AND, as a wonderful and unexpected side effect, I lost 20 pounds!

I was a very healthy eater prior to the program, especially as compared to most of the population.  My vices were frozen yogurt (haven’t had that in over a year…wow!) and dark chocolate (I still indulge more than occasionally). But, I learned, I was, as are most of us, an acid eater.  All proteins, all dairy, all sugar, and many grains are acidic foods. What’s left, you may ask. Greens and alkaline grains.  Many turn off at that point and say I want to eat what I want to eat…and to each his or her own.  For me, I’ll eat cardboard to feel better.

In becoming gluten-free a few years ago (finding that did help a little and stopped the swelling of legs and hands I experienced most of my adult life) I turned to rice products as substitutes…rice cereals, rice crackers, rice pasta, rice based ice cream…all very acidic.

What was a new addition to my new alkaline diet was lots of healthy oils (and I don’t mean just olive oil in salads but adding to my vegetables, soups and cereals coconut oil, avocado oil, hemp oil) and pink salt which is high in minerals. Eating lots of the oils and salt completely decreased my sugar cravings and did not cause swelling at all. Avocado in quantity was also new. We were raised to think a portion was 1/8 of an avocado because of its high fat content.  It turns out that the avocado is high in healthy fats and I eat one or two every day (in salads, in guacamole, in shakes).

Drinking a minimum of 3-4 liters per day of water containing alkalizing greens is also important, providing the hydration and chlorophyll vital to the blood of many processes in the body. I find if I go below 3 liters, I feel the difference. Chlorophyll reduces the binding of carcinogens to DNA in the liver and other organs. In addition, it breaks down calcium stones – stones that the body creates to neutralize and dispose of excess acid for elimination. Green plants provide protein, vitamins and minerals, fiber, electrons, phytonutrients, and alkaline salts.

I eat lots of green vegetables, alkaline grains such as millet, quinoa and buckwheat (available in pastas, cereals and crackers so not deprived of them, just substitute for them). I like to eat and I like to cook and I do plenty of both! When I went from being 100% alkaline to about 90%, which is where I am now, I began including wild salmon, trout and sardines (and this makes eating out much easier although when I asked for steamed or grilled veggies in restaurants I was presented with the most wonderful and creative dishes).

The Liphe Balance Center Liquid Feast was exactly that…a feast. I was never hungry, and feasted on allowed foods.  It was a good way to kick off the alkalizing process in the body until I segued into regular alkaline eating.  The Feast consisted of almond milk smoothies, guacamole shakes, delicious and filling pureed vegetable soups. For the desire to eat something more solid we could eat cut up cucumbers, tomatoes and avocados with a delicious basil/lemon/olive oil dressing.  No deprivation there! 

Dr. Robert O. Young’s work in acidity/alkalinity is that the over acidification for the body is the single underlying cause of all dis-ease. Think of your body as a fish tank. Think of the importance of maintaining the integrity of the internal fluids of the body that we “swim” in daily. Imagine the fish in this tank are your cells and organs bathed in fluids, which transport food and remove wastes. Some of us have fish tanks (bodies) that are barely able to support life, yet we somehow manage to struggle from day to day…creating severe imbalances until there is the inevitable crash and debilitating, chronic symptoms to deal with. 

The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the miles of veins and arteries, as well as organs. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain.

I was so successful in the program (as have been so many others) that when Barbara Slaine, the Center’s director, asked me to work with her, I, the happily lone practitioner for 25 years, responded with an enthusiastic YES!  We run the Liquid Feasts (and other programs supporting the healing of the body and spirit) together.  If you would like to be on the Center’s email list for upcoming events, visit

For further explanation, read Dr Young’s The pH Miracle.  There are many printings but the July 2010 printing is best, I found, because of its clarity, simplicity, lists telling you what you can and cannot eat and recipes. It is available on Amazon.

PS…after 1 ½ yrs on the alkaline program I took a blood lipid test as this has been an issue for the past 30 yrs due to genetics (only trying natural remedies all these years, never meds).  I had the best results ever, another testament to the alkaline life!
