The Importance Of An Alkaline pH
What Is pH?
pH is a measure of acidity and alkalinity. The pH scale goes from 0 to 14. At pH 7, the halfway point, there is a balance between acidity and alkalinity. Such a solution is neutral.
The Importance Of An Alkaline pH
Every cancer researcher knows that cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment. If a cancer tumor is put in a beaker with an alkaline media, the cancer will die in 3 hours. In the alkali, there is oxygen. Small increases of 1/10 to 2/10 in pH can mean an amazing 10 to 20 times more tissue oxygen availability. On the other hand, if the pH of the urine drops from an ideal pH (6.4 to 7.0) into a more acidic pH (below 6.4), then less and less oxygen is available to the body's tissues.
The human body's pH is designed to be alkaline, but even running near an ideal pH, the body's constant waste products create a slightly acid state. Ionized calcium is the key mineral to keep the body's pH closer to an ideal, alkaline pH.
How To Maintain An Alkaline pH
The best way to maintain an alkaline pH is to take coral calcium on a regular basis. For the best results, take the coral calcium with organic aloe vera juice and cod liver oil as a part of your daily regimen.
In order to determine whether or not you have an alkaline pH, you must monitor your urine pH, as this gives you a good idea of your whole body pH.
How To Monitor The pH of Your Urine
Collect a small sample of your first morning urine (your first urination after 5 AM) in a clean cup (or simply urinate on a small strip of pH paper). Immediately compare the color of the pH paper to the color chart on the roll. The corresponding color and number tells you your pH.
Once you have maintained an alkaline morning pH for at least two weeks, monitor your evening urine pH (just before dinner...around 5 or 6 PM) in the same way.
The Ideal Urine pH is between 6.4 and 7.0 (a green color on the tape).
An Acidic Urine pH is below 6.0 (a white or yellow color on the tape). This means your body is lacking enough minerals to carry on thousands of basic cellular functions. It is either on its way to having serious health problems or reinforcing current ones.
How To MonitorThe pH of Your Saliva
Because it has been clinically established that the urine's pH is an accurate reflection of the whole body's tissue pH, The Health Hound, Inc. always recommends testing the pH of the urine versus the saliva. However, since urine testing is not always convenient, we have included the following instructions for saliva testing:
1. Wait for two hours after having anything in you mouth. This includes beverages, foods, cigarettes, etc.
2. Swallow the saliva in your mouth and then suck new saliva from the two salivary glands below the tongue. Repeat two more times.
3. Using a spoon or your finger, collect a small sample of saliva and dip the pH paper into it and remove. Be careful to not over-wet the pH paper.
4. Wait a few seconds and compare the color of the pH paper with the provided color chart.
What The Numbers Mean
The Ideal Saliva pH: An ideal saliva pH range is between 7.0 to 7.5 (a blue color on the pH tape).
An Acidic Saliva pH: An acidic saliva pH is below 6.5.
***The results of the saliva testing will be different from the results of the urine testing. The urine testing is more accurate and you don’t have to wait 2 hours after drinking, eating or smoking.***
