      When does 7=0, 1 = 10, 2=1,000 and 3 = 10,000 ?
      The change in PH from 7 to 6 is HUGE ! It means 10 times more acidic. The change from 7 to 5 is 1,000 times more acidic. Amazingly, the change from 7 to 4 is 10,000 times more acidic.

        It means your pee is acidic. Has nothing to do with your blood or interstitial fluids, etc. It's like measuring the light bouncing off a windshield to determine if the seats are clean in your car.

          You obviously don't understand logarithms. 7 to 6 = 10. 7 to 5 = 100. 7 to 4 = 1000. Also, the numbers mean nothing without an explanation of their significance and detail of what are the values actually measured

            5.0 out of 5 stars Don't trust the skeptics! Trust your own RESULTS! November 30, 2005
            By M. Western
            Format:Paperback
            Having waded through all 69 reviews, it's clear that people are either strongly in support of Dr. Young's approach to health and wellness (based on personal experience), or strongly against his ideas/theories. Really ... check it out ... you'll see either five stars or one star.

            Interesting though ... if you read carefully, you'll notice that most of the critics and skeptics haven't even tried the program. Instead, they're focused on attacking Dr. Young, his lack of credentials, his lack of published papers, his "mumbo-jumbo" science, etc., etc.

            But honestly, who cares? I don't care if he got his degree out of a CrackerJack box. Like most people, I want results that I can see and feel. And that's exactly what I'm experiencing as a result of two things that are the cornerstone to his program: eating more greens and super-hydrating.

            No need to follow all the fancy diets, either. It can be as simple or as difficult as you want to make it. Bottom line to his program entails 3 things:

            1. Super-hydrate the body by drinking plenty of water (4-5 liters a day)

            2. Alkalize the body by eating foods high in alkalinity (and this is where people get stuck ... you don't have to eat like them and fix all those fancy meals ... simply increase the % of veggies at each meal).

            3. Supergreens - if you can't get enough veggies, and most of us can't, then use the supplements or powder. I mean you really can't beat them - 49 different organic grasses, vegetables and sprouts; as well as 125 different vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

            What does all this sound like? That's right ... grandma's recipe for "good health and longevity".

            Again, skip the skeptics and try it for yourself. No doubt your body will thank you for it!

                  Book About pH - 2


                  The Acid-Alkaline Food Guide: A Quick Reference to Foods & Their Effect on pH Levels

                  In the last few years, researchers around the world have reported the importance of acid-alkaline balance to good health. While thousands of people are trying to balance their body s pH level, until now, they have had to rely on guides containing only a small number of foods. The Acid-Alkaline Food Guide is a complete resource for people who want to widen their food choices.

                  The book begins by explaining how the acid-alkaline environment of the body is influenced by foods. It then presents a list of thousands of foods single foods, combination foods, and even fast foods and their acid-alkaline effects. The Acid-Alkaline Food Guide will quickly become the resource you turn to at home, in restaurants, and whenever you want to select a food that can help you reach your health and dietary goals.

                  About the Author
                  Susan E. Brown, Ph.D., CCN is a medical anthropologist and New York State Certified Nutritionist. Dr. Brown is a clinician, researcher and author. She has over twenty years experience in clinical nutrition, bone health research and lay and health professional education. Susan E. Brown directs the Osteoporosis Education Project, non-profit Corporation, and the Nutrition Education and Consulting Service. Both organizations are located in East Syracuse, New York.

                  Review:
                  This book gives a concise description of what pH balance is, how it affects your health, and the possible consequences of not keeping ones system "in balance". pH means "potential for hydrogen", a term used in chemistry, which indicates whether a solution, fluid or compound is acidic, alkaline, or neutral. pH can be measured in our bodies by testing saliva and urine or blood (pH strips are available for the first 2 tests), and if we have a heavy concentration of hydrogen in our systems, we are "acid based". The scale goes from 0 to 14; to be healthy, we should have slightly alkaline, oxygen-rich arterial blood (7.365 to 7.45 is ideal) - a reading of 7.0 is neutral.

                  Oxygen rich systems (alkaline based) neutralize formation of acids which might prove to be harmful. To help us stay in the neutral zone, our bodies use calcium and protein from bones, and possibly other places, to pump more alkaline to our systems in order to neutralize formation of acids, so as to keep us in balance. After the passage of time, if we fail to keep our systems in balance, and we become acid based, our bone formation will be reduced, calcium will be lost in our urine (leading to kidney stone formation), proteins will breakdown causing our muscles to waste away, our systems will be unable to repair cells, tissues and organs fully, our systems will age at an accelerated pace, more free radicals will be produced, we will be subject to increased fluid retention, and so forth.

                  The American diet is centered around foods that create acid-base systems. Dr. Brown lists about 70 pages of foods we eat, and rates them according to whether the food is alkaline-forming or acid-forming. The first time I read through the list, I determined that I could not eat any food without running the risk of forming more acids in my system. To remedy this, Dr. Brown suggest that we eat more dark green vegetables than any other food group. She doesn't require me to give up meat or eggs or nuts, so long as 2/3rd of my plate contains foods that are alkaline-forming (such as kale, collard greens, mustard greens, asparagus, snap green beans, etc.).

                  Dr. Brown explains the basis for her conclusions. Our bodies have 3 methods of getting rid of unwanted "poisons", or acid forming chemicals, all of which are filtered through our bodies:

                  First, our lungs supply our bodies with much needed oxygen (as we breathe in), and dispel (exhale) carbon dioxide (the "burned" waste from our system - an inference might be made that aerobic exercise helps cleanse our system, because it requires lots of heavy breathing, which gives us a double dose of oxygen; in turn the CO2 expels the oxidized stuff we don't need);

                  Second, our kidneys filter unwanted sugars, and other waste products which we don't need (we rid our systems through urine - a preventative measure we can take is to drink lots of pure, and hopefully ionized or ozone rich water, which will keep our kidneys healthy, as well as supply needed oxygen to our systems); and

                  Third, our skin filters out other things, through our perspiration (which is also produced through exercise).

                  With the information in this book, we will understand the importance of pH balance, have a list of foods and corresponding indicators as to whether the foods produce acid or alkaline with our systems, and gain a better appreciate of the components of good health.

                    Wow, tough crowd.
                    Maybe another thread is needed to discuss how measuring pH is invalid rather than distracting from the OP's subject.

                      LinD,
                      Nice idea, but that will not stop the TROLLS. This website is the TROLL CAPITAL of the USA. Moderators will do nothing about the trolls, but will close the thread instead of dealing with them. So enjoy the information that I am providing before this thread gets closed, thanks to the TROLLS.

                      You can find more health information here, including a chapter on PH:

                            Maybe because Anna5's article was about reducing the loss of calcium and not about adjusting ph?

                              The article is all about adjusting PH using potassium bicarbonate to change PH of the body away from acidic to alkaline to prevent the body from leaching calcium from the bones...thus preventing osteoporosis.
