Martini, Bartholomew and Bledsoe in 2008 said: “The maintenance of normal acid-base balance is one of the body’s most important homeostatic functions”. Our body need to keep the balance of pH in order to stay healthy or in homeostasis. Every organ has its own pH value determining its state. Blood, for example, has a pH value between 7.35 and 7.45 remaining in homeostasis. If these values go too low or too high, the body is more susceptible to diseases which can be often fatal. Nowadays, people’s pH values are mostly acidic.

Cancer thrives in acidic state

Cancer is a disease which thrives when the blood falls under the 7.35 mark and becomes acidic. The external pH of a tumor is also acidic as a result of increased metabolism of glucose and poor perfusion. There are some preventive measures we can take to reduce the rate of cancer. If you keep a normal acid-base balance, your body will be able to defend itself from tumors and diseases.

You need to establish the pH levels in your body, and to do that, you need a pH-testing strip kit. There are two ways in which you can use it to determine the pH levels: with your saliva or urine.

The saliva is less reliable than your urine. The best time for the test would be in the morning. If the average level of urine drops below 6.5, the body’s buffering system is overwhelmed and enters a state of “autotoxication”, so your attention should turn towards lowering the acid levels.

If you choose to test your saliva, you should make sure you haven’t eaten anything in the past two hours. Swish some saliva in your mouth, place the strip on the tongue and compare the results against the color guide on the strip.

If you choose urine testing, do it when you first urinate in the morning. Compare the results on the color guide. If the saliva’s pH is too low (below 6.5), the body may be overwhelmed by acids and it has lost its ability to flush them out through urine. If the level is too high (over 6.8), then you will experience gasses, constipation and increased yeast, mold and fungus production. This effect is similar to testing chemicals in a swimming pool.

How to correct your pH levels

There are numerous ways to get the pH levels back in balance. Everything you eat or drink makes a change in the pH levels. Think of it as a swimming pool: if the pool’s pH is out of range, algae and fungi will grow in it. It becomes difficult to get the balance back            , so the water cannot be crystal clear. This means that we need to focus on what we eat to maintain our pH levels.

Try eating as much raw and pure food as possible. This means that processed foods should be forbidden. Eat organically, which will reduce the number of chemicals that enter our body. Every chemical that enters must be processed in the body. An ideal pH balance is crucial for our general health.

You must also understand which foods are acidic and which are alkaline. To make matters simple, every raw vegetable is alkaline, and meat fall in the acidic category. However, you should not completely remove meats from your diet, although there are benefits from this.

You need to eat more vegetables and less meat. Proper diet is the key to restoring your body’s pH levels.
