Is Your pH Balanced? Find Out By Testing
To maintain good health the body is constantly seeking to get rid of the excess acids
that irritate the tissues and deplete them of minerals. One of the principal systems it
uses for this purpose is the renal system (kidneys). The normal rate of acid excretion
through the kidneys gives urine a pH that falls between 6.75 and 7.25. By testing the
degree of acidity of the urine, you can determine whether your body is eliminating a
normal quantity of acids. If the acid excretion rate is higher than normal, the urinary
pH will be more acidic. This low urinary pH is also an indication that the body is
saturated and therefore in an acid state.
Another indicator of the overall pH balance in your body is the pH of your saliva.
When your body has the mineral reserves that it should, the abundance of minerals will
show up in a saliva ph test as a pH reading of 7.0 to 7.50. A low saliva pH reading
indicates that the mineral reserves in your body are low, and are being used to buffer
acids elsewhere in the body.
There is a strong correlation between the pH of the body's internal environment and
that of the urine and saliva: urine and saliva become acidic when the body's internal
environment becomes acidic. You can discover the pH of these fluids by using Bell
pH Stix. These pH test strips are made specifically to test saliva and urine, and are
the most accurate and economical test strips on the market.
Don't trust your body to just any chemical lab litmus pH paper.
Bell pH Stix are unlike most pH test strips or pH papers on the market. Due to
the narrow range in pH of these bodily fluids (generally 5.8 to 7.6) it is imperative
that a pH test strip give a clear indication in small pH unit increments. Ours do. Our
test strips give an indication in .25 pH unit increments, and test a range of 4.5 to 9.0.
Plus, pH Stix use the double color indicator method, allowing for a more accurate
determination of the pH value of what you are testing. Throw away the pH paper, and pick
up the pH Stix.
pH Stix come complete with directions, indicator color
chart, and a guide to how
to interpret results.
Compare pH Stix with standard litmus paper from rolls. pH Paper tends to bleed when it
gets wet, making the determination of the correct color quite a challenge. pH Stix are
different- the reagent is affixed to a plastic strip. No paper, no bleeding, no mess;
easy testing. Bell pH Stix - the clear choice.
This is what Dr. Ted Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die has to say about pH
"I get hundreds of calls for pH testing
materials. pH testing is very complex. There are individual pH testing substances for
everything, but they are very expensive. This particular strip is reasonably priced too.
I have looked a long time and through many companies to find these quality pH strips.
My experience with litmus pH paper strips has not been good. I do not recommend them."
SALIVA: Take a saliva reading before and after meals. The alkaline levels of your
saliva should be greater after meals because there is an abundance of alkaline-rich
minerals in saliva. Then test your saliva 60 minutes after a meal. If the pH level is
lower than 6.75, then your alkaline mineral reserves are low.
URINE: For best test results, test your second urination in the morning. You will
likely see urine pH become more alkaline as the day progresses. Test frequently during
the day, and determine an average.
