Is your Body pH Balanced?

By Dr. Michael Veselak, D.C.

You get your cholesterol tested. You get your blood pressure tested. Just like your cholesterol and blood pressure, your pH says a lot about the state of your health. It tell you how acidic or alkaline your tissues and fluids are. Your pH affects all aspects of your well-being.

If you are acidic, you will likely experience: 

  • poor digestion
  • low energy
  • can’t lose weight
  • increases in aches and pains – “inflammation”
  • decreased minerals
  • body will leach minerals out of bone to buffer blood = osteoporosis
  • greater risk for heavy metal toxicity and increased free radicals
  • increased colds and flues due to welcoming environment for viruses and bacteria
  • irritated organs that come in contact with bacteria, especially Thyroid and Parathyroid

When you are too acidic, you are at a greater risk for heavy metal toxicity, which in turn causes a downward spiral of free radicals! Calcium lines the brush border cells of the gut to prevent the absorption of heavy metals. When you are too acidic, you have lower levels of available calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals like selenium and zinc. Always remember that free radicals damage the mitochondria of the cell. Mitochondrial DNA is 10 times more sensitive to free radical damage. 

How Do You Measure pH?

By analyzing what your body is secreting: Urine.

Thanks to the kidneys, the body is constantly trying to get rid of excess acids through the urine, which can range in pH anywhere from 4.5-8.5. The pH of your urine is a good reflection of the pH of your internal environment. If your urine tests high in acids (below 6.4), then you know your body is too acidic. If it tests above 7.0, you are too alkaline (Not Good!)

Performing Test

In the morning, upon arising, collect urine mid stream. Dip pH strip and after 15 seconds, match it to test results pH color chart at the top.

Improving your pH

If you want to get out of pain and/or improve you health, you must improve your pH. This is the first step and it cannot be skipped.
