Your pH level is important and is a barometer of your body’s internal environment. Urine Ph is 6.4 – 7.0 and should be tested after the first A.M. urine between 9 A.M. & 4 P.M. and taken either before you eat or two hours after eating. Blood pH is 7.4 (when healthy), and Saliva pH is 6.8.Our diets and lifestyle often keep us in the acidic range of pH creating fatigue and lowered immunity. More importantly, acidity creates the perfect environment for parasites, Candida, harmful bacteria, Cancer and more.
If you are Acidic it’s a safe bet that you have microform overgrowth. Also, mycotoxin (Fungus) and exotoxins (bacteria) are the poisonous waste that is generated by microforms. Microforms are a major source of acid in the body. Acidification creates the correct environment for microforms.
