pH Balance And How To Test Yours
If your pH level tends toward acidity, more than likely
you will experience almost constant symptoms.
- You tire easily and are fatigued, yet you cannot sleep at night.
- Have a hard time thinking clearly or you are forgetful...brain
- You're Pessimistic, Cranky, High Temper.
- Have digestive problems, acid reflux, heartburn, irritable bowel,
or Crohn's disease
- Get 'colds' and the flu a lot.
- Allergies to the environment and to foods.
- Joint Aches, Arthritis, Fibromialgia, Candida Overgrowth
- Brittle Bones, Osteoporosis
Since Ph BALANCE is at the cellular level, you have to change the
environment and nutrients that your cells receive and that is done
through eating foods that heal and making sure that you supplement
with appropriate minerals.
We can no longer depend on the nutrients in the food we eat. In
1940, one-half cup of green beans was a serving and would provide
the needed nutrients from that veggie. However, due to the fact
that the soils our foods are grown in now, are nutrient deficient,
it would take 4 cups of green beans grown today to receive the same
nutritional benefit. NO one is going to eat the amount of food it
would take to receive the same value of nutrition, so we HAVE to
supplement in this day and age.
Calcium is a great alkalizer!! It occurs naturally in high alkaline
foods, and of course can be taken as a supplement. People that eat
a high acid diet are pulling the minerals from their bones and other
organs in order to keep their pH levels from becoming lethal, which
your body will do to fight for life. Therefore, we see growing numbers
of cases of osteoporosis.
Women are so surprised when they are taking 1,500 mg of calcium
a day and not seeing improvement in their bone density. Of course,
the high acid foods like the soda and coffee
they drink all week, the pizza, the white flour pasta
and cereal, the high protein diet they are on to loose
weight, all absorbed that calcium and a bunch more from their bodies
and left them more brittle boned than before. All the while, they
were faithfully taking the calcium supplement their Doctor told
Weekly, people are seeing amazing results simply by bringing their
body into pH balance. It's interesting to see the wide range of
problems that are helped. This goes to the root of the problem
not just the surface.
To find out if you are acidic, you'll need to get some pH test
strips from your local pharmacy. They're over the counter and do
NOT require a prescription.
A neutral pH is considered 7. A pH above 7 is alkaline and a pH
below 7 is acid. The pH of blood is 7.4. This means
that it is slightly alkaline. This alkalinity has to be kept almost
constant; even minor variations are dangerous.
If the blood lowers to pH 6.95 (barely over
the line of the acid side), a coma and death result.
And if the concentration in the blood changes
from 7.4 to 7.7, tetanic convulsions occur.
Although only a blood test can reveal the blood pH, it
is possible to monitor the pH of the body with a simple home test
kit of litmus or nitrozine paper. Testing saliva and urine
daily for three days should reveal an average pH of between 6.8
and 7.1. The ideal pH level is between
6.0-6.8. Some variation will occur depending on
the recent type of food and drink ingested. The test is best done
on an empty stomach when you first wake up and have had nothing
to eat or drink for 12 hours.
Typical pH values:
stomach juice = 1.5
