i just ordered some from a place called "PH ION" i do not have the exact website, but hopefully you can google it..
Alkaline Acid Balance . . . I am trying to learn all I can. I know that when we are acid there is a danger of leeching minerals from the bones and causing things such as osteoporosis.
From where do you order your test strips. I have ordered some but think they may be a bit expensive.
The test strips are not that expensive..
HOWEVER, They have a lot of other things available for sale on the website..
I still think a lot of places are in this 'alkaline diet' idea to make some $$..THEY quite possibly are in the business to make money, and not necessarily for the best for us..
please use caution.
Yes, and powdered alfalfa which i mentioned (what it is and where to get it )in a past post..i do this daily with meals.
Do you take alfalfa capsules to help balance acid-alkaline?
Victoria Boutenkos book "Green for Life" ... an excellent book.
On what book do you rely for info?
This may be true, but GREENS are the most potent source of alkaline elements except for perhaps watermelon and lemon in water.
I have read that vine ripened fruit is alkaline, but the fruit we buy at the market is nto vine ripened and is, therefore, acid. What do you know?
So why worry? Eat Greens (consult book by Boutenko)( if you must consult a book)
Best first thing in the morning. May test another time during day.
Do you test several times a day? Only morning and night? Should we always expect to test "balanced"?
No..we should not always expect to test 'balanced'..it is very difficult, in my experience,to stay alkaline.
Many many things contribute to the body becoming acidic, including stress,
and anger, ( believe it or not) and taking medications, even aspirin..
many many things.
The point is
NOT TO GET CONFUSED or bewildered, just do your best to eat as much raw fruit and green veggies as possible
.It is simple , really.. and not something to get worked up about..or worried about..
We can only do what we can do..( and not get all worried about what some of these places say about life threatening illnesses caused by acidosis..)(most of them have something to sell.) ( so they try to make us panic into buying things)
I found Victorias book very good, but you do not even need scads of books.
I think that the only thing we should do is try and simplify our lives, get our priorities straight ( your signature, Styersky, puts things in proper order )
and things will work out for the best.
That is all we can do.!
hope this helps.
