Thanks for chiming in PB!
Grizz, I love that you champion Vitamin D3, however, this pH thing is really a waste of your time.
No, we totally agree that this whole Ph thing is silly and mostly propagated by vegans trying to tell you about the acidic evils of meat.
The last time I had urine/blood tests my PH came in as 5 and I had ketones in urine also. ( eventhough I eat lots of carbs)
I am a bit scared of messing with iodine as I have multinodular goiters on the thyroid, I certainly don't want to make things worse.
I did ask the Doc about PH, he told me that it was quite variable from one test to another, and that the body will regulate it as needed.
I've never understood this whole thing. Your stomach acid pH is more acidic than any food, and it's the minerals that are alkalizing, so, how could a particular food rich in these minerals be acidic, and harmful, for example dairy. Especially when these vegans promote foods high in acidic nutrients like phosphorus, or insanely hard to digest ones like raw greens. Seems like propaganda to me, and based on a guess.
Thank you for your concern, but I am not wasting my time. Did you notice the post I made about the honorable Dr. Brownstein supporting PH? Dr. Brownstein is famous world wide and he cannot be dismissed. Please read his message here.
I have done all of my homework on this subject and I support Dr. Brownstein. He is 100% correct.
PaleoBird also fought iodine tooth & nail, but yet people in my little community have cured their serious health problems with the Dr. Brownstein Iodine Protocol:
The iodine Thread!!! - Page 73
Author Lynne Farrow documents how iodine cured her breast cancer & several other health problems in her book, "The Iodine Crisis: What You Don't Know About Iodine Can Wreck Your Life"
It is Paleobird who wasting her time trying to fight against this thread and the honorable Dr. Brownstein.

Well, most of the foods you recommend are vegan propaganda and it doesn't show how cow's milk is acidifying considering it contains all of alkalizing minerals, and an abundance of calcium with an ideal ratio of calcium to phosphorus.
Another thing, different parts of your body require different levels of pH, it seems strange to try to make yourself 'more alkaline' because you'd just be counter balancing another part of the body. pH can fluctuate throughout the day at different levels in different areas of the body. Your stomach is so acidic that you can't even significantly change the acidity of your stomach, much less your blood. It's what helps you to break down food anyway. Besides that, some foods that are claimed to be acidic, leave an alkaline ash after digestion, so what's the deal here?
One thing I've noticed being touted is that cancer cells can't live in an alkaline environment, but, neither can any other cell.
12.5mg of iodine, really? This should be criminal.

Grizz, I'll add to the chorus. This is utter nonsense. Given that blood pH is stable, as you've agreed above, there can be no pH effect on the organs. Urine pH only varies because the body is balancing blood pH. Brownstein appears to be quack. If you are convinced otherwise, perhaps you can provide some links to peer reviewed publications where this is discussed
