do I know if I’m Acidic or Alkaline?
Any number below 7.0 means that your urine is on the acid
side. The lower the number the more acid the condition.
For example, a number of 5.0 indicates 10 times more acidity
than 6.0. A number of 7.0 indicates the neutral state, neither
acid nor alkaline. Ideally, your first morning urine pH
should be in a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5. When your first morning
urine is neutral or just slightly acidic this indicates
that your overall cellular pH is appropriately alkaline
and that the small amounts of acids built up from normal
metabolism have been easily concentrated for excretion.
The cells of your body function best in an alkaline state.
if my urine pH is below 6.5?
If your readings fall below 6.5, then you should begin changes
aimed at alkalinizing your diet, as shown on the “Food
and Chemical Effects on Acid/Alkaline Body Chemical Balance”
chart supplied with your purchase of pH Hydrion papers from
Thinking of You.
the beginning, because of the acid forming tendency of the
standard American diet, you may well have low pH readings.
Occasionally, you may find a 7.5 to 8.0; this is acceptable.
If you pH readings are consistently greater than 7.5, this
occurrence represents a “false alkalinity” and
indicates a catabolic state involving tissue breakdown.
If so, you may wish to discuss this with your health practitioner.
