pH PAPER FROM GENUINE HEALTH

The term “pH” stands for “potential of hydrogen” and measures hydrogen high in concentration of a solution. It is a measure of the relative acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The pH level indicates the body’s acid/alkaline balance and tells the health of an individual. [ROLL]
 

1 BOX CONTAINS:

1 ROLL OF pH PAPER  
   

FORMAT:

 1 ROLL


IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Do not place the pH paper directly in your mouth.

Manufactured by Genuine Health.

SUPPLEMENT FACTS:

  Measure your acid/alkaline balance

  Colour coded dispenser

  Scale of pH runs from 0 (acidic) to 14 (alkaline)

  Ideal for monitoring the effects of a healthy diet


TESTING pH:

Tear off a strip (approx 2.5cm or 1 inch long)
If using saliva, DO NOT let the strip touch your tongue or mouth. Collect a sample in a glass or on a spoon and test that way.
If using urine, place the paper in direct contact at mid stream or collect sample in cup.
AS SOON as the paper makes contact with the sample, compare the colour to the colour coded chart on the dispenser.
Write down your results and repeat for 30 days to get a fair reading.

What is pH?

pH (potential of hydrogen) represents the balance of positively charged (acid-forming) ions to negatively charged (alkaline-forming) ions in your body. The lower the pH of your blood, the more acidic; the higher the pH, the more alkaline.

Studies show you pH directly impacts your overall health, including energy, digestion and skin - as well as your risk for serious diseases including cancer, osteoporosis and even obesity.

For optimum health, our body's pH should be slightly alkaline; however the majority of North Americans are overly acidic due mostly to their diets. The good news is that you can become  more alkaline, starting with an easy pH test and the right dietary and lifestyle changes.

How Does the Acid-Alkaline balance work?

Everyday we derived energy from the foods that we eat and a steady flow of oxygen. After food is digested and absorbed what's left behind is an ash residue that's either acidic (requiring elimination via the intestines, kidneys, skin or lungs) or alkaline.

Before the body can excreted the acidic waster products, it must neutralize them using a steady source of oxygen and minerals found in foods such as vegetables, herbs and green food supplements. When there is ample oxygen and alkaline minerals available for neutralization, the body's pH remains balances and its organs function correctly.

Are YOU at Risk?

What causes Acidosis? -When we consume too many acid-forming foods, and not enough alkaline-forming foods, the body looks to its own "buffers" (stored alkalized minerals) to neutralize the acidic load. Emotional and physical stress also increases acidity, due to its uric acid by-product.

What happens when the body is TOO Acidic?

In addition to the tell-tale signs such as low energy and poor digestion, studies have shown a direct link between an acidic pH and a variety of health issues, including:

  Free radical oxidation occurs with greater ease, while antioxidant activity is impaired
  Vitamins and minerals from foods or supplements are not absorbed well
  Friendly bacteria in the small intestine die and the immune system is impaired
  Connective tissue becomes weakened causing skin and hair to lose their tone
  Sleep patterns are disturbed
   Cold, infections, headaches and flu become more frequent
   Physical and mental energy is depleted, affecting stamina and moods

What causes excess acid in the body?

It could be:
   Easting too many proteins, grains or dairy products
   Strenuous exercise
   Excess stress

Excess acid is excreted in urine, and is a signal that the body chemistry is not in balance. The acid level in the body may be a factor in determining an individuals health. 

pH and Weight Loss

Can a healthy pH help you lose weight? YES! That's because instead of eating processed foods that overload your body and deplete energy, an alkaline-friendly diet feeds your body whole, natural foods for the best energy, digestion and metabolism. Studies also show that diets high in acid-forming foods promotes production of the stress hormone "Cortisol", which in turn promotes the accumulation of abdominal fat. In other words, pay attention to the pH scale and not your bathroom scale and your body will reward you back!

pH and Serious Illness

For years, doctors have linked oxygen supply with cancerous activity. Research shows acidosis (little to no oxygen) appears to allow the pathogens and cancer cells to proliferate, whereas an alkaline pH (high oxygen levels) discourages cancer cell colony initiation and promotion. This explains why regular, deep belly breathing is so important! It's feeding your body oxygen!

The pH Scale

The scale runs from 0 to 14. Zero is totally acidic and 14 is totally alkaline. The middle of the scale, at 7, is neutral. Quality water has a pH of 7.

An ideal range for pH should be 6.2 to 7.4, typically fluctuating as follows:
  6.2 to 7.0 (morning)
  6.6 to 7.2 (afternoon)
  7.0 to 7.4 (evening)

If your pH level is consistently 5.5 or less, you are overly acidic and should adjust your diet accordingly. While you may feel fine, your health is at risk in the long-term.

To get an accurate measure of your state of health, it is recommended that pH levels be recorded three times a day 2 hours away from meals - morning, afternoon and night- for 30 days. Any measurement of saliva or urine is acceptable, as long as you perform your pH test at the approximately same time each day.

How to test pH

Tear off a strip (approx 2.5cm or 1 inch long)
If using saliva, DO NOT let the strip touch your tongue or mouth. Collect a sample in a glass or on a spoon and test that way.
If using urine, place the paper in direct contact at mid stream or collect sample in cup.
AS SOON as the paper makes contact with the sample, compare the colour to the colour coded chart on the dispenser.
Write down your results and repeat for 30 days to get a fair reading.

How to become MORE Alkaline

One of the most important steps to increasing alkalinity is to reduce the intake of acid-forming foods and increase intake of alkaline-forming foods. The ideal diet is comprised of 75% alkaline-forming foods and 25% acid-forming.

Other proven ways to become more alkaline include:

  Reduce and/or eliminate stress
  Reduce and/or eliminate medications where possible
  Exercise regularly 
  Practice "deep belly breathing" throughout the day
