I checked my pH yesterday using pH tape from the health food store (saliva technique) and found that was less acid than I used to be – about neutral. My 7 year old came in and of course wanted to check her pH (spitting and paper that changes color – very exciting) and her pH was OFF THE CHARTS ALKALINE! So my husband checked his and it was almost identical to mine. Just curious if anyone else has tried this and does this mean she’s in the ultimate state of health??
The best time to check is first thing in the AM. This is your true metabolic state. Checks through the day are more reactionary, but useful; It lets you know how your diet is affecting your balance. I have read that exteremely high pH is from a dumping of alkaline elements to neutralize acids and is an overshot. I am still trying to get my diet to the point where I stay alk. Green veggie juice is the best for me right now. I am still all over the place and I have been working at it for a few months. I still have a problem with overeating fats, though.
ardesmond2 – very curious to know…this is my favorite photo of yours so far!
deborahann – good to know about the AM, that’s when we did it, but I don’t understand the dumping of alkaline elements – is that good or bad? The first time my husband and I did it a few months ago he was off the chart alkaline (extremely high?), so I was greenish yellow and he was purple which was a bit of a shock until we saw my daughter’s results this morning – just like him so I was starting to think it was genetic, but today he was neutral.
