Feeling Acidic? Enter The Week With Alkaline Forming Foods

Feeling Acidic? Enter The Week With Alkaline Forming Foods.png

Our bodies must maintain a blood level pH of around 7.45 in order to live. It really is all about balance. Remember disease thrives in a very acidic environment. Measuring the pH of our saliva and urine gives us important health information. We want to goal to bring our bodies to a pH of at least 6.8. Cancer Cells and other diseases cannot survive there. This is very important. You want your endocrine glands to function better? Correct your pH!

What causes excess acid in the body?

  • Eating too many animal proteins, grains, refined sugars or dairy products

  • Strenuous exercise

  • Excess stress

Test only first thing in the morning upon arising. Let some urine go into the toilet. Then catch a small amount in a small container. Finish urinating.
Place the piece of pH paper in the container of urine and hold for a count of 20. Remove from the urine and compare the color of the pH paper with the color chart provided for you. Record this. Do this for a week and average your scores. The goal is to get a 6.0 – 7.0 or above (not above 7.5, however) reading.

Take a clean spoon and spit into it until you have enough saliva to get the pH paper thoroughly wet, after 20 second count, read the color chart, as above, and record your reading. An ideal score is 6.5 – 7.5. If you do not have ideal ratings, adjust your diet by following the food chart provided which shows foods that burn acid and those which burn alkaline.

One of the quickest ways to get your pH in your blood alkalized is using a green juice powder like barley juice. One of the most potent, purest forms I personally use is that of AIM. It is called Barley Life and AIM Leaf Greens. They come in capsule form too. I have seen the pH of some folks radically change within a matter of 3-4 days. At the end of the day it is a whole food that gets to the cells.
