  • The pH Scale

    pH is a measure of acidity and alkalinity.

    pH is a measure of acidity and alkalinity. The pH scale goes from 0 to 14. At pH 7, the half way point, there is a balance between acidity and alkalinity. Such a solution is neutral. The principles of pH begin with a definition of the term pH. The p comes from the word power. The H, of course is the symbol for the element of hydrogen. Together, the term pH means the hydrion ion exponent. The greater potential a substance has for freeing hydrogen ions, the smaller its pH value is. So, the greater the degree of acidity, the lower the pH reading.

    The pH scale is logarithmic, meaning that the values separating each unit are not of equal value along the scale but increase in proportion to their distance from the midway point of an even balance between acidity and alkalinity.  The values are multiplied by 10 at each unit. Thus a pH value of 6 is 10 times more acidic than a pH value of 7, but a pH of 5 is 100 times more acidic than a pH of 7. Conversely, a pH of 8 is 10 times more alkaline than a pH of 7, and a pH of 9 is 100 times more alkaline than a pH of 7.

    Note: When testing the pH of your saliva or urine, while a reading of 5.5 may not seem too acidic (after all, it’s only 1.25 units lower than 7), indeed it is very acidic. In fact, it is 50 times more acidic than what is considered healthy. A healthful pH range for an individual is between 6.4 and 7.0.

    Another important note is that in order to reverse this, and neutralize that acidity, it requires a large amount of alkaline elements. The math would look something like this:  In order to change the pH of a gallon of solution with a pH of 5.5 to 7.0, it would require well over 20 gallons of a solution with a pH of 7.5.

    One of the single best indicators of overall health is not blood pressure, pulse rate, body temperature, cholesterol levels, glucose level or any of the blood test results. It is pH, which the traditional healthcare industry never even considers let alone understands. Infections, malnutrition and stress all contribute to a low (acidic) pH levels. When the body becomes acidic, it has difficulty absorbing and utilizing nutrients. The more acidic one becomes, the more the body is exposed to pathogens. Parasites, bacteria, viruses, cancer and other pathogens thrive in an acidic environment. Additionally, as the pH drops less oxygen is available to the tissues.

    An alkaline body is an overall healthier body.  When the body’s blood pH achieves an alkaline balance, which is no less than 7.366, it is more readily assimilate nutrients and repel infections and contagions.  In an alkaline environment, there is abundant oxygen.  Small changes of 1/10 to 2/10 in pH can mean 10 to 20 times more oxygen availability.  Simply muscle test the statements, “My blood pH is 7.366″ or “My blood pH is below 7.366″ to accurately determine your pH.  The elimination of all infections and proper nutrition (ionized minerals in particular – see Daily Supplements For Optimum Health) are the keys to maintaining an ideal pH.

    Low pH could be due to the kidney’s inability to reabsorb sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium.   Another possibility that could contribute to low pH is poor absorption of minerals in the small intestines.  One tablespoon a day of organic black strap molasses for 6 to 8 weeks should solve this issue.  Any precipitous drop of pH level in the future will most likely be the first indication that a new infection has been contracted.
