The Acid Alkaline Balance
Your Body's Natural PH Balance
Your body had a natural acid/alkaline balance. Medications, sugars, poor diet and stress can all make the body more acidic.
When the body is acidic, yeast, bacteria, viruses and cancer can thrive. And conversely, when the body is alkaline, foreign bacteria, viruses, yeast and cancer can not live.
Our body has a natural balance called homeostasis. When we are too acidic, minerals like calcium are leached from our bones to help alkalize the body. Another way our body tries to protect us from acid is to buffer it with fat and store it in the body.
Luckily, there are ways to naturally boost your PH which should stay at 7.365. Eating more green vegetables and less sugars, meat and dairy. There are also some great supplements out there that are alkalizing as well.

Being too acidic can show itself in many ways. Some acidosis symptoms that can affect a person are greater fatigue, even when there is little or no mental or physical effort. Also associated with acidosis is a lack of enthusiasm, becoming tired easily, and difficulty recovering from physical activity. Those with acidosis often are touchy and irritable. They sleep poorly and worry too much, often leading to depression.
pH Litmus Stix, 4.5 - 9.0 pH
Contains 80 PH test strips, with use instructions.
The first thing you need to do is test your pH. Using pH test strips, you can easily test your pH with your saliva or urine in as little as 15 seconds.
I recommend testing the PH of your urine first thing in the morning. The results should be slightly acidic. Then, test your ph again the next time you go to the bathroom. If you have not yet regained a neutral to slightly alkaline PH, then your body is having a difficult time in eliminating acids from the body.
