Mineral Deficiencies in your Body
Can Be Measured as pH

     pH is a measure of Acidity & Alkalinity. The higher the number, the greater the alkalinity content. All healthy humans begin life with most of the body fluids and tissues in a slightly alkaline state (high pH). Over time, in modern society, the body tissues and fluids often become acidic ( low pH ) from food, drink, prescription drugs, pollution and stress, that are absorbed on a daily basis. You can test your pH very easily with a pH test kit. Many Naturopathic doctors believe at least 157 diseases are caused by an acidic ( low pH ) system. In fact, almost every named disease condition has one thing in common; higher than normal accumulation of acid waste in the body. Decades ago, Dr. Otto Warburg, the only physician to ever win 2 Nobel prizes, proved that cancer cannot exist in an alkaline ( high pH ) environment. If acid is allowed to build up, the body will become starved of oxygen and the disease will not be far behind. Many substances (such as baking soda) can raise pH temporarily but only minerals can raise and maintain a high pH. Minerals play a crucial role in alkalizing the bodily fluids and tissues only when they are in a form that can be absorbed.
  How to Perform the Saliva pH Test
    First, you must wait at least 2 hours after eating. Fill your mouth with saliva and then swallow it. Repeat this step to help ensure that your saliva is clean. Then the third time, put some of your saliva onto the pH paper. The pH paper should turn blue. This indicates that your saliva is slightly alkaline at a healthy pH of 7.4. If it is not blue, compare the color with the chart that comes with the pH paper. If your saliva is acid (below pH of 7.0) wait two hours and repeat the test.

  Ways to Restore Acid Alkaline Balance in Your Body
    If your saliva is too acid you would benefit from increasing the alkalinity of your body. Ways to do this include:

  • Eat mostly alkaline foods. The general "rule of thumb" is to eat 20% acid foods and 80% alkaline foods. Avoid the "strongly acid" foods. Strongly Acid: meat, fish, soft drinks. Mild Acid: grains, legumes, nuts. Mild Alkaline: fruits, vegetables, berries, dairy. Strongly Alkaline: green leafy vegetables, brocoli, spinach.
  • Supplement your diet with alkaline minerals. Nutritionally important alkaline minerals include calcium (Ca+), potassium (K+), magnesium (Mg+), and sodium (Na+).
  • Supplement your diet with freshly made fruit and vegetable juices. As a treatment for cancer, some doctors recommend one 8 oz glass per hour for every waking hour of the day. We could never eat the amount of nutrition we drink with these juices.
