I did a teleseminar a few weeks ago on the importance of maintaining the proper pH in our system. Our cells function best at around 7.4. It is easy to test at home with a pH test kit. So I ordered one from Amazon and decide to check it out. This is the procedure .
Test in the privacy of your own home. As you as you awaken, before you drink or eat anything, put some saliva on a spoon and dip the test strip in it. Compare the color to a pH color chart that comes with the test strips. Next, measure the pH of your second urination of the morning To do this, urinate on the strip or collect the urine in a glass (not paper) cup and dip the test strip . Again, compare the color to the pH color chart. Then do another more urinary test before dinner. Record everything on a chart.
Do this for 10 days in a row. Ignore the top 3 and bottom three tests because they are the extremes. Average the remaining four to determine your pH. Ideally you want to be in the 6.75-7.0 range but you can have some variations. Your urinary pH, is generally a good indicator of how acid or base your total body pH is. When urinary pH is continuously between 6.5 in the a.m. and 7.0 by evening, you’re functioning in a healthy range.
So I started yesterday.
Day 1 Morning Saliva 6.5 Urine 6.5 Evening Urine 6.75
Actually I am shocked. I eat quite a good diet and expected my pH to be closer too 7 But it is only day one and I will just see what happens. I had some wine last night and this mornings levels were even worse.
Day 2 Morning Saliva 6.0 Urine 5.75 Evening Urine 6.75
Curious to see how this goes. I stopped drinking coffee, had a cacao maca latte for breakfast, salad for lunch , chciken, greens and mushrooms for dinner
Day 3 Morning Saliva 6.5 Urine 6.25 Evening Urine 6.50
I stuck with no coffee and a “perfect” alkaline diet again today.
Day 4 Morning Saliva 6.5 Urine 6.75 Evening Urine 6.50
Day 5 Morning Saliva 6.5 Urine 7.0 Evening Urine 6.75
Day 6 Morning Saliva 6.5 Urine 6.5 Evening Urine 6.25
I had some chocolate the evening of day 5 so this affected my numbers on day 6
Day 7 Morning Saliva 6.25 Urine 5.75 Evening Urine 6.25
I had dinner out with wine, bread and dessert on day 6 so you can see how this affected my numbers on day 7
Day 8 Morning Saliva 6.5 Urine 6.0 Evening urine 6.5
Back on the alkaline program, day 7 so day 8 is looking better.
Day 9 Morning Saliva 6.5 Morning Urine 6.5 Evening Urine 6.5
I really focused on drinking lots of water on day 8
Day 10 Morning Saliva 6.5 Morning Urine 6.75 Evening Urine 6.5
