A healthy person has no aches, pain, body odor, bad breath or foot odor. Their urine or stool does not smell and he or she sleeps soundly, has no skin rash, dandruff, and rarely has a cold, flu or heartburn. Healthy people do not take non-prescription or prescription drugs.
Most people are unhealthy; in reality, they have symptoms that require some type of medication.
Testing the PH balance of the body will give an effective overview of personal health. Monitoring does not diagnose a disease or sickness, but the ability of the body to respond to diet changes and stress.
Knowing if the body is acidic or alkali is inside knowledge of health improvement. Keeping the body PH balanced is an indicator of good health. To get the exact PH reading, test saliva and urine when awaking, before you eat or drink, then add the two readings together and divide them by two.
PH testing tells of the environment of the bodily fluids, which surround the cells. Having an alkaline environment will serve as a buffer. Sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and iron contribute to an alkaline environment. Testing the urine or saliva is the easiest body fluid to know if the body has minerals stored in the fluids. These minerals are found through out the body. When the PH saliva test is 7.0, the body has the minerals needed to function smoothly. Normal PH range for saliva is 6.8 to 7.4 and the normal range for urine is 6.4 to 6.8.
The body becomes fertile ground for some diseases, particularly arthritis and cancer when it becomes too acidic. Cell will degenerate and die, thereby causing the body to become more acidic. The body must maintain the proper balance to utilize the nutrients, or eliminate collected waste.
The body has a deposit and withdrawal system when it comes to maintaining the proper PH in the blood. If the blood is alkaline, the PH range is 7.35 to 7.45. A PH upset would severely affect the organs. The blood has a narrow PH range, 7.35 or 7.45, anything below or above is an indication of disease. By some researchers, if PH falls below 6.8 or above 7.8, the cells stop functioning and death occurs. By some researchers, the ideal PH balance is 7.35 and by others, it is 7.4. However, we all agree that alkaline system is best for optimal health.
