pH = Potential Health

Why Should I Be Concerned About My pH Levels?

Our body is 72% water. pH level profoundly effects on all body chemistry in health and disease. The body's management of "pH" is so important that there is a strict accounting procedures to monitor acid-alkaline balances in every single cell. All regulatory mechanisms including breathing, circulation, digestion, hormonal production and digestion are controled by pH. when the pH deviates too acid or too alkaline cells can die.

What Is "pH"?

pH is potential hydrogen. The pH scale is 1 to 14 and pH balance is . The lower the pH number, the greater the acidity, and the higher the pH number, the greater the alkalinity.

Is an Imbalanced Body pH Really That Dangerous?

Yes, pH is life threatening. An imbalanced pH interferes with all chemical reactions in every cell in your body affecting life itself!

Can An Imbalanced pH Cause Serious Health Problems?

Yes, pH affects every cell in your body. pH imbalances are either too acid or too alkaline, which can lead to the progression of most, if not all, degenerative diseases including the # 1 killer in the U.S. Cardiovascular Disease, the # 2 killer in the U.S. Cancer and Diabetes, the newest health epidemic of obesity.

What Causes pH to Become Imbalanced?

Diet and kidney health are the major causes. A processed food diet is acidid compared to a natural whole diet is alkaline. Food is burned at 98.6 inside each cell similar to burning a log in your fire place leaving a noncombustible "ash." Certain foods are "acid-forming" in nature, whereas others foods are known to be "alkali-forming."

Which Foods Are "Acid-Forming" and Which Foods Are "Alkaline-Forming"?

Most high protein foods such as meat, fish, poultry and eggs, all carbohydrates including grains, breads and pastas and fats are "acid-forming." Fruits and vegetables are "alkaline-forming." Although citrus fruits, such as oranges and grapefruit, contain organic acids and may have an acid taste, they are not acid-forming when metabolized, leaving no acidic residue. Similarly, "Free Form Amino Acids" from protein foods are not acid-forming, but instead offer unique buffering capabilities to the body to help offset acidic wastes. Protein foods are essential to pH balance.

How Can I Find My Body pH?

Testing your pH with pH paper available at Ross Wellness. You can determine quickly and easily, in the privacy of your own home, what your pH is. This simple pH-Test can determine your saliva and urinary pH, which is generally a good indicator of how acid or alkaline your total body pH is.

How Do I Rebalance My pH?

Watching your diet will assist rebalancing your pH. If you're too acid, increase the number of fruits and vegetables you eat. If you're too alkaline, increase the amounts of acid-forming foods consumed. If you are too acid, increase the amounts of alkaline-forming foods consumed.

What's An "Acidic pH"?

An acidic pH, or "acidosis," is measured on the pH strips measuring below a pH of 7 or higher. An acid pH, or "acidosis" is measured on the pH strips measuring a pH below a pH of 7.all cellular functions of the body are sensitive to the pH.
