Why pH is so important to your health
pH, which stands for the potential of Hydronium ions, is a measure of acid/alkaline balance. pH is one of several critical measures of health in the body that is commonly overlooked, and poorly managed by most practitioners. The slightest change in pH cause major alterations in the rates of cellular chemical reactions, or determines if a life-giving chemical reaction occurs at all! These reactions are needed to sustain life supporting processes in the body in order to maintain good health and a healthy metabolism that helps with everything from efficiently burning calories and health of your skin to the effectiveness of your immune system. pH is never static, but always fluctuates throughout the day based on our diet, activity level, stress levels and overall nutrient status.
All body reactions require proper pH because it is needed to create the proper environment in order to favor particular chemical reactions, especially for our metabolic enzymes which run all of our body’s processes. Our digestive enzymes also require a specific pH in which to activate. Our body produces acid just by existing, and we must provide the right nutrients to regulate acid/base balance in the body. This means that if we do nothing but exist (don’t eat, don’t move, don’t drink fluids) acidic waste products build up in our tissues and our body eventually breaks down in time. In a healthy person, acid production is handled appropriately and much is safely eliminated through our urine and/or managed through “buffer systems”. Healthy blood pH is around 7.35- 7.45, or slightly alkaline. Healthy blood pH allows for the transport of nutrients, hormones and oxygen to our cells and tissues. Healthy blood pH allows our immune system to operate optimally. Improper pH balance in the blood is always present during any unhealthy condition. Less alkaline (acidic) blood means a low oxygen environment which is needed for harmful organisms such as parasitic bacteria, fungal forms, and viruses to move about more freely and take hold inside your body. In addition to poor oxygenation, less alkaline blood has difficulty circulating in our blood vessels, cannot eliminate waste, and poorly disseminates nutrients and hormones throughout the body.
How can I test my ph level at home?
Just head to your local drugstore or online retailer and pick up a pack of pH test strips. You can test your pH levels often throughout the day, but try to do so at the same time each morning, as your body will be more acidic the earlier you measure. The goal is to get your morning urine pH between 6.5 and 7.5.
