This man single handley cured himself of a chronic condition that had doctors baffled just by changing the way he eats.
Meet Brandon Burell, the man looking to change an industry and make fresh, healthy alkaline based foods available in every corner of the country.
Former Wall Street Investment Banker and Serial International Entrepreneur Brandon has partnerships and conducts business in over 8 countries throughout Southeast Asia and South Africa giving him a unique perspective on how people eat and that food is every bit as much medicine as it is delicious. Suffering from chronic sinus issues that had doctors baffled and admittedly needing afrin nose spray just to breathe normally – Brandon knew that he was missing something. Frustrated and wanting to take his health into his own hands, Brandon started researching and found how inflammation is the #1 leading cause of disease in Americans and that food he eats every day was one of the main culprits. He kept seeing the words ‘alkaline vs acid based’ – but had no idea what it meant. And that’s when the green light started to flicker on for Brandon, 40 pounds overweight, borderline diabetic, and chronic sinus issues that no doctor could figure out – Brandon drastically changed what he was consuming.
Within 1 week of following an alkaline only diet, Brandon was able to breathe normally and his sinus problems that plagued him for the past 15 years were suddenly gone.
Better quality of life was enough motivation for Brandon to keep up this new way of eating. Down 40 pounds and feeling better than ever, Brandon created a way to start bringing alkaline foods mainstream and more accessible – he created Alkaline Certified – a certification process that is committed to certifying and building sources of alkalinity products, educating consumers and providing certification. Partnering with scientists and research labs, Brandon created the first alkaline certification process to provide high quality services to manufacturers at a rapid pace and offer tools and resources dedicated to the advancement of alkalinity in modern diets.
All consumers have the right to know if their food is alkaline or acid based – something that is rarely talked about. Alkaline Certified was built to champion the health benefits of alkaline products and spreading education and awareness of how eating Alkaline can benefit your health.
During the pandemic, the shortage of fresh, healthy produce was staggering and often much worse in black and minority communities. Brandon saw the way his community was being affected and doubled down with wanting to help people struggling to put fresh food on the table.
He realized that most consumers have limited options to purchase quick, healthy alkaline meals. Most food options are low protein, high sodium, low fiber ingredients enriched with soy and other additives such as thickening agents or gluten, which is not suitable for anyone, but often that is the only available option. Brandon wanted to create a product that would benefit all Americans and help fight adult and childhood obesity. Customers rarely have the option to purchase premium, ready-made plant-based alkaline meals and if they do, they are usually sold at a premium and not available nationwide.
That’s where Alkaline Fresh comes in, premiering in July, Alkaline Fresh will be the first ever alkaline certified meal kit delivered directly to your door. Aimed to help young adults, athletes, and families eat healthy foods and to help disenfranchised communities that don’t have access to premium alkaline food selection. The prices will start at just 10.99, a price point that Brandon specifically kept low to help make Alkaline Fresh available to everyone.

After years of enjoying an alkaline diet, he realized that most consumers have limited options to purchase quick, healthy alkaline meals.

“I was at no point of return with my weight gain and severe allergies, and I decided that enough was enough! After researching about ways to not only lose weight but I wanted to enhance my quality of life. The Alkaline diet had the most benefits for me and I knew it was time for me to make this part of my lifestyle.
The first step to my journey was sorting out all of the foods that I could eat based on their degree of alkalinity and acidity .I started with a diet that was full of alkaline organic fruits, vegetables and whole grains such as quinoa, spelt, kamut, fonio, amaranth, wild rice and garbanzo beans. I knew that meat & most seafood were both extremely acidic and stayed away from all alternative plant based meats as they are either full of soy or have acidic ingredients. One of the bigger surprises was finding out white rice, brown rice, yeast, gluten, whole wheat & oats, were all acidic and had to be excluded from the diet. I also began cooking with avocado and grapeseed oils along with many alkaline spices.
Of course, hydration is always key so I made sure to consume a gallon of alkaline spring water every day and started my days making a green smoothie in the morning that mainly included a combination of kale, dandelion greens , ginger, sea moss, bladderwrack, moringa and many other alkaline herbs. Nooshield Nutraceutical Irish SEA Moss and Bladderwrack vegetable capsules is highly nutritional for the cells in the entire body. Irish Moss and Bladderwrack in combination provide essential nutrients, including selenium, calcium, potassium and magnesium and natural levels of iodine. You can order Irish SEA Moss with Bladderwrack Capsules from SEAMossPower.com website.
After 7 days of completing this process, I was down 12lbs and my severe sinus congestion that I suffered with for 15 years was completely eliminated. I truly felt like I had gotten my life back and no longer was a prisoner to Afrin and other nasal steroids. After 2 months of continuing this lifestyle, I lost 40lbs, eliminated my snoring, sleep improved, arthritis in my joints disappeared and my energy levels were better than they were when I was 21 and playing collegiate baseball. I was able to run/walk for 16 miles a day with no fatigue which also helped contribute to my weight loss.
I learned that you can completely change the course of negative health effects by eating a diet full of alkaline food and beverage products. I would recommend this diet to anyone who is seeking to live a healthy lifestyle and want to improve their overall wellness. It changed my life for the better and can do the same for yours.”
