A common question when the alkaline diet is mentioned is “how do I measure my pH?” and, “What should my readings be?”

The pH of your body is a good barometer for your internal and overall health.

The pH scale varies from 0 to 14, 0 is acid and 14 is alkaline, with 7 being neutral. The human body should have a pH of around 7.3.

When I first tested my own pH level I had a reading of 5.0 which is rather acidic, my practitioner (JB) said he has seen pH4.0 and lower in clients who have cancer. Ironically once these clients changed the PH levels up to between neutral 7.0 or slightly alkaline 7.5 the tumours mysteriously disappeared!

This was the knowledge that encouraged me to experiment with the pH diet in the first place, and within 10 days my pH had risen up to 6.5. I was taking sodium bicarbonate alongside the diet which I believe boosted the effects of the diet and possibly the reason why I saw such amazing results in such a short space of time.

Testing the pH is simple and can be done with either Litmus paper or pH test strips (for saliva and urine) which are now readily available.

Saliva testing should ideally be done first thing in the morning, before you brush your teeth, and before you eat or drink anything. Place the test strip or paper inside your mouth against the cheek where the salivary ducts are, then compare your results with your chart.

Urine testing can be done at anytime but the most accurate results are from the 2nd urine flow of the day. Allow some urine to flow before holding the test strip in the flow then compare your results with your chart.

Both saliva and Urine should reveal pH results between 6.5 and 7.3

For optimum health a diet rich in fresh unprocessed foods is key, minimise foods that contain dairy, meat, fish and processed glutinous flours. Choose instead lots of fresh green vegetables, drink lemon water, miso and herb teas.

Help your body by making it more pH neutral, it will reward you with better health!
