pH doesn’t work like regular numbers do, where 6.0 is “one point less” than 7.0. It works logarithmically, just like the Richter scale for earthquakes. That means for each point you drop away from the ideal of 7.0, you’re actually experiencing a 10-fold decrease in your pH! For example, someone with a pH of 6.0 is ten times more acidic than someone with a pH of 7.0. Someone with a pH of 5.0 is 100 times more acidic than someone with a pH of 7.0 Fortunately, pHion’s pH Stix provide an easy, accurate, and affordable way to find out exactly where you stand.Your urine and saliva hold the key to your health
How do you measure what’s going on inside of your body? By analyzing what it’s secreting: urine and saliva. Thanks to the kidneys, the body is constantly trying to get rid of excess acids through the urine, which can range in pH anywhere from 4.5 to 8.5.20 The pH of your urine is a good reflection of the pH of your internal environment.21 If your urine tests high in acids (below 6.75), then you know your body is high in acids too. (Not good!) If your urine tests low in acids (above 6.75), then your stores of alkaline minerals are doing a good job of buffering the acids in your body.22 (Awesome!)
Another way to find out the overall pH balance (or imbalance) of your body is to test the pH of your saliva. Saliva pH can range anywhere from 5.5 to 7.5 or more.23 If you have enough alkaline minerals, your saliva test should register a nice 7.0 to 7.5. But if your mineral reserves are too low, the acids will overwhelm your system, and you’ll test under7.0.24 Some people even test as low as 4.5 - 5.75 (the danger zone), which is not where you want your pH to be. In fact, if your pH tests that low, we recommend you take immediate action to correct this acidity. Remember, because the pH scale works like the Richter scale — i.e. logarithmically — a pH of 5.0 is 100 times too acidic!Truly Vibrant Health & Energy Begins with pH Bal:" ":ntal clarity, and you’ll even notice that your skin has regained that healthy glow. pH balance of the body can be simply summarized as your internal balance of Acid and Alkaline. As a matter of course, everything living on good old planet earth must remain in a pH balanced state for the ecosystem to function as designed. Science proves that fish in our oceans and lakes can only survive in properly balanced environments; trees in our forests can only grow in properly balanced soils; and people can only stay healthy if the body has a balance between its levels of Acid and Alkaline … what Essential pH refers to as the Optimal pH Zone.
Essential pH's extensive line of pH balance products has been developed under the guidance of the world’s foremost leaders in pH including Naturopathic Doctor Christopher Vasey, N.D.; Author of The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health. Dr. Vasey has practiced Naturopathy in Chamby-Montreux, Switzerland for 25 years. He has authored 22 books written in eight languages, and is a leading authority on the subject of pH balance, detoxification, and rejuvenation. "In working with pHion, we have created a line of products that work together in a synergistic manner to help restore pH balance in your body. Each product serves a specific role in the pH balancing process, while acting as a catalyst to increase the effectiveness of every other product." In addition, our products have been adopted by thousands of professionals to create the proper pH level within your body.
Don’t trust your body to regular litmus paper
If you care enough about your body to test your pH, then please, do it the right way. Litmus paper (you know, the kind that comes in a roll) won’t give you a truly accurate pH reading because it bleeds when it gets wet, which makes it quite a challenge to determine the color. Better alternatives exist, but they’re not separated into small 0.25 unit increments, which leave you guessing as to what your actual pH reading is.This is what Dr. Ted Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die has to say about pHion pH Stix: "I get hundreds of calls for pH testing materials. pH testing is very complex. There are individual pH testing substances for everything, but they are very expensive. This particular strip is reasonably priced too. I have looked a long time and through many companies to find these quality pH strips. My experience with litmus pH paper strips has not been good. I do not recommend them."
Alkaline By Design, Acidic By Function
The fluids, the blood and all the delicate tissues in your body must remain Alkaline for us to experience truly Vibrant Health. However, since practically every metabolic process from breathing, to digestion, to the production of energy, all create acid as a by-product, your body is always working to maintain the yin/yang balance between Acid and Alkaline. When you become too Acidic, thus out of pH balance, your body becomes stressed and vulnerable to a whole host of health problems. You may experience low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion, aches and pains, and even more serious disorders. Your body becomes pH imbalanced and overly Acidic primarily as a result of one or all of the following:
The good news is that if you’ve suffered the negative impact of an overly Acidic body, you can regain your health – you can regain balance – you can regain your life … starting today! The process of rebalancing your body begin:" ":H papers or test strips available
- Ingestion of Acids(acidic diet)
- Creation of Acids(toxicity and stress)
- Improper elimination of Acids(mineral depletion)
- They are made and calibrated specifically to test urine or saliva.
- Because the reagent (the stuff that changes color) is affixed to a plastic strip, there’s no paper, no bleeding, and no mess. In fact, pH Stix are the only test strips on the market that can pass through a urine stream without having the reagent bleed, making them exceptionally easy to read.
- They have a double indicator design that uses two squares containing two different pH reagents. The top square of reagent is more sensitive to higher pH ranges (6.75 – 9.0) and the bottom square of reagent is more sensitive to lower pH ranges (4.5 – 7.25).
Simply put, our double indicator pH strips measure a wider pH range more accurately.Is Your Body pH Balanced? Find Out By Testing!
Just like your cholesterol and blood pressure, your pH says a lot about the state of your health. It tells you how acidic or alkaline your tissues and fluids are — and that affects all aspects of your well-being.
The pH scale goes from 0-14, where 0 is very acidic (think battery acid) and 14 is very Alkaline (think lye).
In order to experience optimal health, the pH of your body should be slightly Alkaline — between 7.0 to 7.4.
A pH reading in The Optimal pH Zone tells you that your insides are happy, while a pH reading in The Acidic pH Zone or The Very Acidic pH Zone may mean you’re putting yourself at risk for serious disorders. Even a slight pH imbalance can make you feel tired, reason being your body starts to struggle digesting foods, your weight increases and aches start creeping up.
