How to test the pH Levels of your Saliva & Urine
1. Upon waking, test your saliva with the pHydrion litmus paper.
When you get out of bed, before brushing your teeth, drinking, eating or smoking, wet the end of a pHydrion test strip with your saliva.
Note the color change; compare to the color chart on container, and write down the pH number, date and time.
The optimum saliva pH should be between 6.8 and 7.2.
2. Next, test your first urine of the morning. This urine is highly concentrated so it is a good time for testing the pH.
Urinate on a strip of pHydrion paper; note the color change, compare to the color chart on container, and write down the pH number, date, and time.
The pH of the first urine optimally should be between 6.8 and 7.2. If your first urine is lower than 6.8, you are deficient in alkaline buffers and need to move to a more alkaline diet rich in fresh green vegetables and low sugar fruits.
If your first urine is higher than 7.2, your alkaline buffers are sufficient to neutralize the acidic food and drink you ingested the day before.
To balance the pH of the urine you need to move away from acidic foods and drinks, and begin ingesting liberal amounts of electron rich green vegetables, low sugar fruits and healthy polyunsaturated fats.
3. Test your second urine of the morning, before eating any food.
This number represents the pH of your second urine after you have eliminated the acid load from the day before. Ideally, the pH should be between 6.8 and 7.2.
If the pH is lower than 6.8, you are in a state of latent tissue acidosis and you are deficient in alkaline buffers such as bicarbonate, sodium, potassium and magnesium.
The lower pH is also indicative of a diet high in protein and an increase in acids from proteins including nitric, sulfuric, phosphoric, and uric acids. Eliminate from your diet proteins such as beef, chicken, turkey, pork, and fish to balance pH, while eating liberal amounts of green foods and green drinks and healthy polyunsaturated fats.
