pH means ‘potential hydrogen’ atoms that an element or compound can absorb. The body’s pH is measured from 0 to 14. With pH 0 being the most acidic, pH 14 being the most alkaline and pH 7 being neutral. Therefore, 6.9 (slightly acid) and 7.1 (slightly alkaline) are almost neutral and the farther you move from 7 determines how acidic or alkaline you are.
The pH (“parts of hydrogen”) balance in the body is one of the most pertinent factors affecting the health of the body. The ideal pH of the body is indicated when the urine is 6.6 and the saliva is 7.2. These two pH’s in the body, one intra- cellular, the other extra-cellular, must be kept in the proper range for the polarities of the body to be in the proper position for optimum electrical impulses. In other words, nitrogen and oxygen are in ideal balance. Both pH values need to stay as far away from each other as possible. If either extremes are reached, death occurs.
Healthy cells are aerobic, or oxygen-breathing, and have a high pH (alkaline). Anaerobic cells are nitrogen breathing cancerous cells, and they always have a very low pH (acidic). Therefore, having an alkaline body may help to prevent cancer. In addition, alkaline elements help breaks down fat in the body.
To maintain good health the body is constantly seeking to get rid of the excess acids that irritate the tissues and deplete them of minerals. One of the principal systems it uses for this purpose is the renal system – the kidneys. The normal rate of acid excretion through the kidneys gives urine a pH that falls between 6.5 and 6.75. By testing the degree of acidity of the urine, you can determine whether your body is eliminating a normal quantity of acids. If the acid excretion rate is higher than normal, the urinary pH will be more acidic. This low urinary pH is also an indication that the body is saturated and therefore in an acid state. A proper alkaline environment in your blood provides literally thousands of times the oxygen needed for all bodily functions. Proper pH by itself is a major factor in optimizing health and preventing disease.
HOW DO I TEST MY pH ?? by using Litmus Paper. Wait at least 2 hours after eating. Fill your mouth with saliva and then swallow it. Do this again to help ensure that the saliva is clean. Then the third time, put some saliva onto pH paper. The pH paper should turn blue. This indicates that your saliva is slightly alkaline at a healthy pH of 7.2. If it is not blue, compare the color with the chart that comes with the pH paper. If your saliva is acid (below pH of 7.0) wait two hours and repeat the test. Available most pharmacies
pH meters are also available for daily monitoring; a crucial test if you are at risk with the potential of cancer. For more on these and associated test please call the Imsyser HO for consults to advise you on various pH related tests and more. pH is an absolute health indicator!!!!!!
