pH Balance


                                    The Importance of Alkalinity to Health


The unfriendly bacteria and fungi that populate our intestinal tracts thrive in an acid environment and are responsible for secreting mycotoxins, which are the root cause of many debilitating human conditions.  In fact, many researchers believe that most diseases can be linked to blood and intestinal acidity, which contributes to an acid-based yeast and fungus dominance.


The symptoms of excess internal acidity include:


·        Fatigue / low energy

·        Unexplained aches and pains

·        Overweight conditions

·        Low resistance to illness

·        Allergies

·        Unbalanced blood sugar

·        Headaches

·        Irritability / mood swings

·        Indigestion

·        Colitis / ulcers

·        Diarrhea / constipation

·        Urinary tract infections

·        Rectal itch / vaginal itch


                The ideal pH for human blood is between 7.4 and 7.6.  Preserving this alkalinity (pH balance) is the bedrock on which sound health and strong bodies are built.  When the blood loses its alkalinity and starts to become more acidic, the foundation of health is undermined.  This creates an environment where we become vulnerable to disease.  When our bodies are overwhelmed by large quantities of toxins, our health becomes impaired and we become susceptible to disease and illness.


                    By balancing the body’s pH and creating a more alkaline environment, you can rein in the microbial overgrowth and choke off the production of disease-producing mycotoxins.  With pH balance restored, the body can regain newfound vigor and health.


How to Restore Alkalinity -  Read about "AlkaLime" in The Essential Oil Desk Reference and:


1.      Carefully monitor your diet.

2.      Avoid the use of antibiotics.

3.      Use essential oils.

4.      Use alkaline salts.

5.      Lower stress.

6.      Boost friendly flora.


Using an acidophilus or bifidus supplement, such as Royaldophilus, may be especially valuable in boosting levels of naturally occurring beneficial bacteria in the body.  They also help the body maintain proper pH balance for nutrient digestion and absorption.  Ideally, the lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacterium bifidus cultures must be combined with plantain to promote implantation on the intestinal wall.



Testing Your Own pH


              You can easily test your pH at home by purchasing small litmus-paper strips at your drug store or pharmacy.  To get the most accurate reading, expose the strip to a sample of your saliva immediately after awakening in the morning and before eating breakfast.  Color changes on the litmus paper will determine pH; check the instructions of your kit for specific details on how to read the litmus paper. 


pH home test strips are available by calling 1-877-817-9829.
