Our diet tends to be far too acid, especially based around wheat, sugar and coffee. You can eat greens and other alkaline foods and immediately see the effect on your body with these test strips. I also make up alkaline filtered water to drink with a pH around 8-9; again using these strips to check this. Aim for a consistent urine pH of about 7.2
Excess acidity must be neutralised and de-mineralisation of bones and teeth is one of the main mechanisms the body employs, which explains why arthritis, osteoporosis and teeth cavities can be so common today. I have seen it quoted that the average woman no longer has enough calcium to last her life expectancy with a modern accepted diet. The Sodium : Calcium ratio is tied up with this.
Correct pH is only one mechanism that we need to have in balance, nevertheless an important one - one of 11 Fundamental Homeostatic Control (FHC) systems. These pH test strips are a simple and powerful tool to help overcome many symptoms of illness and achieve good health in conjunction with other measures.
