View Full Version : Ph balance question
04-18-2011, 04:02 AM
For the first time this morning I tested my PH balance and on the strip it showed a ph of 6.
I've been doing a lot of raw, the least on an average day is 80%. I've had Breast Cancer and am at an alarming rate of a second one (according to my doctors) and am trying to prevent this through diet and lifestyle changes.
I'm a bit worried about what the strip showed me as I really thought I would have been much more alkaline. I tested after I juiced this morning (a veggie juice and a shot of wheatgrass).
Any ideas how I can become more alkaline? I'm still pretty new to Raw.
Urine right? I wouldn't worry too much about it, I think it's normal that in the morning it's a bit more acidic. For me it's also around 6 in the morning, later on in the day it evens out to 7-7.5

Thanks Dime. I'll try it again later. Yeah it was urine.
Is it better to use urine or saliva?
The strips I have (just arrived this morning in the post) don't seem great. Hard to get a very accurate reading. They are really difficult to find where I live in Ireland so I ordered them on the net.
Hopefully it'll change later on today.

I don't know about pH in urine vs saliva or anything, but I'm wondering what that other 80% is. Have you considered going 100%? Depending on what that 20% is, that could make the difference between a positive biopsy and a completely clear screening, I feel certain by what I've seen on all of these raw food forums.
In fact, I mention this a great deal because I think the two are such lovely companions - rawfoodrehab - awesome site with lots of great info and support. Different format than this, but same concept - people sharing support and information on raw living. There is a section in there where someone posted a link about a woman revering breast cancer by focusing on precisely what you are - pH. It was lovely and inspiring. If you're interested, I can tell you the pathway to find it after you'd register over there.
Also, breathe and relax. The tension and stress seem to come through in your post. That can't help your body to heal and reverse negative processes. Trust, breathe, do some breathing exercises and simple meditative techniques. Do you meditate now? If not and you want any input, I'd be so glad to help! I teach meditation to beginners.

When you are detoxing, it cans make your body acid, this is totally normal if this is the case.
Increase your greens/herbs (spirulina, chlorella, spinach, kale, cilantro, persely, basil, dandelion etc..... )
Your body will get back to alkaline in not time.
Hope you feel well soon

Thanks guys, your info is very helpful.
BeingK8, the other 20% of my diet consists of rice milk with something like cooked millet, quinoa and maybe the odd day I have a slice of Rye Bread or sometimes some kamut pasta with my raw dinner.
Some days I can do 100% raw and some are really difficult, I get stuck in work late with no food, or something like that and it can throw me off. I RARELY eat any real SAD food, maybe three times in the last 3 months.
I would love the link to that girl that reversed her breast cancer, thanks very much. I wasn't aware of that other website so I'll check it out.
I haven't meditated at all but spent a lot of time last year training to be a life coach and this really helped my head with this Cancer stuff. I know I probably sounded anxious in the above post too and maybe I'm just worried with all the Raw work I do, I really didn't expect an acid result. I'm going to look for better PH strips too so I can see a more accurate result.
I've also just started studying Raw Food and will be doing so for the next nine months so I'm hoping this really helps me on this journey.
Thanks again for your help, really appreciate it.
