GSE Acid/Alkaline Balance in Body

The Body's Acid / Alkaline Balance

Measuring Body pH

Using pH paper - We can get a pretty good idea of the pH of our body tissues and internal fluids by using pH paper in saliva and urine.

-   Saliva pH reflects your success in creating an alkaline condition within your body it should be 6.5-7.5 all day for someone in a healthy state. pH readings should be taken one hour before or two hours after a meal. A pH below 6.0 indicates that you should pay immediate attention to alkalizing your diet.

-   Urine pH reflects the pH corrections by the kidney buffer systems - E.g. An alkaline urine simply shows that some alkaline minerals are being discarded by the body.

•   People in North America tend to consume too much calcium and sodium and insufficient magnesium and potassium - This is often reflected in urine tests which show calcium and sodium being excreted while magnesium and potassium are being retained.
