The body pH

pH PaperIt is absolutely true that we live and die at the cellular level.
All the cells (billions of them) that make up the human body are slightly alkaline, and must maintain alkalinity in order to function and remain healthy and alive. However their cellular activity creates acid and this acid is what gives the cell energy and function.

As each alkaline cell performs its task of respiration, it secretes metabolic wastes, and these end products of cellular metabolism are acid in nature. Although these wastes are used for energy and function, they must not be allowed to build up. One example of this is the often painful lactic acid which is created through exercise. The body will go to great lengths to neutralize and detoxify these acids before they act as poisons in and around the cell, ultimately changing the environment (Pasteur called it "the Terrain") of the cell.

pH Logarythmic

Most people and clinical practitioners believe the immune system is the body's first line of defense, but in actuality it is not. It is very important, but more like a very sophisticated cleanup service. We must instead look at the importance of pH balance as the first and major line of defense against sickness and disease and for health and vitality.

If we were to ask "What is killing us?", the answer might be "ACIDOSIS". It has been demonstrated that an acidic, anaerobic (lacking oxygen) body environment encourages the breeding of fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses. It is also said that "cancer cells" cannot grow in a well oxygenated environment.

Let's look at an example
If we were to seal the door of our freezer and then unplug it, come back in two weeks and open the door, what would we find? Mold, bacteria, microscopic bugs. Things would be growing and multiplying. Where did they all come from? They did not sneak in - remember the door was sealed. The answer is . . . "they were always there". It is simply that the environment changed to a more inviting and healthy one for the "critters" to live in.
This can be likened to a shift in our biological terrain from a healthy oxygenated, alkaline environment to an unhealthy anaerobic acidic environment.
You see what is healthy for us is unhealthy for the body attackers and what is healthy for them is what is unhealthy for our body.

Another example: The one thing you pay attention to if you own a swimming pool is what? the pH of course! If the pool pH is off balance, the pool becomes green with algae (fungus?).

The best time to monitor your pH

Now that you have understood the importance of the pH let us see how we can measure it. The best time to monitor your pH is first thing in the morning and 30 mns before a meal and the last thing before retiring.
Monitoring your pH is a tool that helps you to take charge of your health.

  Supplements to chose from:
Purified water w/chlorophyll ES - Exercise - Essential fatty acids
 
Congratulations!
Energy & Vitality - Proper digestion - Good Elimination & Immune system

Comments: When the pH is properly balanced, you are able to assimilate minerals and vital nutrients. Your digestion is good, and proper elimination is taking place. A healthy internal environment prevents disease by excreting and buffering acid.





 
Part 1 - Examples of acidosis
(too much acidity in the body)
Numbers may not be exact
 
Morning Urine 5.05 -Saliva 7.0
  Supplements to chose from:
Food Enzymes - keeps pH balanced - Calcium, Skeletal Strength - Colloidal Minerals or Mineral Chi
 
Evening Urine 6.0 - Saliva 7.5
  Supplements to chose from:
Purified water with lemon - Green Zone Powder or Herbal Potassium - Clean Start, then LBS II with Fiber.
 
Symptoms: Catch colds easily - Low energy - blood sugar issue - Stiff joints - Muscle cramps - Gas, bloating - Weight Gain

Comments: If the saliva pH is slightly elevated, digestion needs improvement. The pH of the urine indicates that the kidneys are removing acids. Work to improve your digestion and include foods and supplements that are high in calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium, which act as buffers. When the saliva pH is above 7.0 carbohydrates digest poorly.

Aromatherapy: Use Lemon, Grapefruit, Roman Chamomile

 

 
DIET
 
As a general rule, follow the suggestions offered in the excellent book "Eat right for your Blood Type" by Dr. Peter D'Adamo.

Acid - Alkaline foods

You might want to check this page to have an idea of what is good, neutral or bad for you (depending on your pH).

Your Blood Type
:
If you do not know it... go to the nearest Blood Bank and donate your blood - DO NOT forget to also ask what your blood type is OR call your doctor he "should" know it.
What are the foods which are highly beneficial (to you) and those which are not? Check this page if you know
.


 

 



 
Part II - Examples of Alkaline pH
 
Notes on Alkalinity: An alkaline pH indicates the emergency back-up system of ammonia is the principle neutralizer.
Alkaline pH correction takes longer and is considered more challenging.
 

Morning Urine 6.5 -Saliva 6.5
  Supplements to chose from: Food Enzymes, PDA - Liquid Calcium - Vitamin C
Support Adrenals: HY-A, Nervous fatigue formula, or Energ-V
 
Evening Urine 7.0 - Saliva 7.5
  Helpful hints: 8 glasses of Purified Water - Clean Colon: CleanStart, Bifidophilus
Reduce carbohydrates
Increase proteins: Super Algae
Bladder Support: Cranberry-Buchu

  Symptoms: Headaches - Low Blood Sugar - Slow, toxic Bowels - Bacterial Infections (especially bladder) - Candidasis

Comments: Even though this number looks optimal, a high urine pH in the morning indicates that the kidneys ARE NOT excreting acids properly, and as the liver detoxification process is slowing down, the pH will move to more alkaline. Bacterial and fungal infections are a possibility. HCL (Hydrochloric acid), enzymes, minerals and probiotics are especially important.

Comments: The saliva will become more alkaline as a compensation for the increased cellular acids. A high urine pH indicates that the kidneys are not excreting acids and that the lymphatic congestion is building.
Cellular activity will also lead to an increase in sodium retention and potassium excretion. You need to strengthen your body's ability to remove acids via the kidneys.
