How To Test Your pH

How to Measure Your pH  with pH test strips

It's ridiculously easy and cheap to measure your pH. All you need is a box of pH test strips. Testing your pH takes less than a minute. Testing your pH value is important because it instantly indicates your health level. Healthy blood has a pH level of 7.35. A pH below 7 is acid and is an indication of poor health. You may experience symptoms like: low energy , pains and aches, mood swings, worrying and fears, poor sleep or being over weight. If you have a pH of 5, you're probably seriously sick. You can reverse this acid state by eating more alkaline foods.

Test your urine. You need to urinate on the pH test strip. The color will change. Write down the pH number, the date and time. You may note that every time you go the bathroom the pH number is different. When you're healthy the number will always be around 7.3 or even up to 8 just after eating. The first urine of the day demonstrates your dietary intake from the day before while the second or third urine of the day demonstrate more of the general overall diet in the last couple weeks. If the pH of your urine is mostly around 7.3 you're fine. If the pH of your urine is lower, especially if it's below 6.5 this means you don't have sufficient alkaline reserves to buffer acids. You are short in minerals such as sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium. Add Phuel supplements and alkaline foods into your diet and eat less acid food. Eat more raw green leafy vegetables and less food high in animal protein, sugar and grains. Eat more avocados, vegetable soup, fresh almond milk, young coconut water, wheat grass, green powder, green vegetable juices, smoothies, seaweed and super foods.
