I hate to tell you this, Kristy, but whoever sold you those test strips pulled a fast one on you.
The whole ph thing is utter bunk. The body tightly regulates blood ph which is the only thing that matters. But it does not do this by "pulling reserves from the body". It does this by excreting the excess in either direction of optimal in the urine. So all those test strips did was tell you that your body is doing it's job just fine.
Relax, eat your primal food, and let your body do it's thing.
