To test urine : 1. Quickly pass the strip
through your urine stream;
2. Shake off any excess urine immediately;
3. Hold the strip in the air, wait 30 seconds then match the color on the
strip pad to corresponding color
chart found on the bottle;
4. Note your pH reading level for future reference;
5. Discard the strip - Do not reuse.
To test saliva: 1. Prior to testing,
ensure you have not eaten, drank or brushed your teeth in the last hour;
2. Rinse your mouth out with water and wait approximately 3 minutes;
3. Test your saliva;
4. Hold the strip in the air, wait 30 seconds then match the color on the
strip pad to corresponding color
chart found on the bottle;
5. Note your pH reading level for future reference;
6. Discard the strip - Do not reuse.

Is your body pH balanced? Find out by
You get your cholesterol tested. You get your
blood pressure tested. Now you can test your pH — easily, accurately, and
within the comfort of your own home!
Just like your cholesterol and blood pressure,
your pH says a lot about the state of your health. It tells you how acidic
or alkaline your tissues and fluids are — and that affects all aspects of
How? All kinds of ways. If you are overly
acidic, you may feel low energy…find it difficult to lose weight…experience
poor digestion…suffer from aches and pains…and even fall victim to more
serious disorders. In fact, since acid is naturally corrosive and
inflammatory, it irritates the organs it comes in contact with.That’s why too much acid can contribute to the demineralization of your
bones, teeth, and joints, and have a negative impact on your urinary and
Plus, an acidic environment makes the perfect
breeding ground for microforms, which can further compromise your health.
The pH scale goes from 0-14, where 0 is very
acidic (think battery acid) and 14 is very alkaline (think lye).
In general, the pH of the human body should be
slightly alkaline — about 7.4. A pH reading in the Optimal Zone tells you
that your insides are happy, while a pH reading in the Danger Zone may mean
you’re putting yourself at risk for serious disorders. Even a slight pH
imbalance can make you feel tired, cause you to gain weight, give you
trouble digesting food, and create aches and pains in your body.
Most parts of the body have a pH range they can
tolerate. The skin can vary from 4.5 to 7.0, for example. Stomach acid
ranges from 1.0 to 3.0. And pancreatic secretions go from 8.0 to 8.3. But
the blood is not so flexible. It has a very narrow pH range: 7.365 to 7.45.
If the pH of your blood goes outside that range even just a little, wham,
the functioning of your organs is compromised. If the pH of your blood
strays too far from that acceptable range for too long, your body will go
into shock…then coma…then death.
That kind of severe metabolic acidosis is rare;
however, mild acidosis is now thought to be strikingly common — affecting at
least half of the population.
One point makes a world of difference
pH doesn’t work like regular numbers do, where
6.0 is “one point less” than 7.0. It works logarithmically, just like the
Richter scale for earthquakes.
That means for each point you drop away from the
ideal of 7.0, you’re actually experiencing a 10-fold decrease in your pH!
For example, someone with a pH of 6.0 is ten times more acidic than someone
with a pH of 7.0. Someone with a pH of 5.0 is 100 times more acidic than
someone with a pH of 7.0
Fortunately, pHion Diagnostic pH Test Strips
provide an easy, accurate, and affordable way to find out exactly where you
Your urine and saliva hold the key to your
How do you measure what’s going on inside of
your body? By analyzing what it’s secreting: urine and saliva.
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 to 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
6.75), then you know your body is high in acids too. (Not good!) If your
urine tests low in acids (above 6.75), then your stores of
alkaline minerals are doing a good job of buffering the acids in
your body. (Awesome!)
Another way to find out the overall pH
balance (or imbalance) of your body is to test the pH of your saliva.
Saliva pH can range anywhere from 5.5 to 7.5 or more. If you have enough
alkaline minerals, your saliva test should register a nice 7.0 to
7.5. But if your mineral reserves are too low, the acids will overwhelm your
system, and you’ll test under7.0.
Some people even test as low as 4.5 - 5.75,
which is not where you want your pH to be. In fact, if your pH tests that
low, we recommend you take immediate action to correct this acidity.
Remember, because the pH scale works like the Richter scale - i.e.
logarithmically - a pH of 5.0 is 100 times too acidic!
Don’t trust your body to regular litmus paper
care enough about your body to test your pH, then please, do it the right
way. Litmus paper (you know, the kind that comes in a roll) won’t give you a
truly accurate pH reading because it bleeds when it gets wet, which makes it
quite a challenge to determine the color. Better alternatives exist, but
they’re not separated into small 0.25 unit increments, which leave you
guessing as to what your actual pH reading is.
This is what Dr. Ted Baroody, author of Alkalize
or Die has to say about pHion Diagnostic pH Test Strips: "I get
hundreds of calls for pH testing materials. pH testing is very complex.
There are individual pH testing substances for everything, but they are very
expensive. This particular strip is reasonably priced too. I have looked a
long time and through many companies to find these quality pH strips. My
experience with litmus pH paper strips has not been good. I do not
pHion Diagnostic pH Test Strips are unlike
most pH papers or test strips available
1. They are made and
calibrated specifically to test urine or saliva.
2. Because the reagent (the stuff that changes
color) is affixed to a plastic strip, there’s no paper, no bleeding, and no
mess. In fact, pHion Diagnostic
pH Test Strips are the only test strips on the market that can pass
a urine stream without having the reagent bleed, making them exceptionally
easy to read.
3. They have a single pad indicator that uses
one square combining two different pH reagents. The first reagent is more
sensitive to higher pH ranges (6.75 - 9.0) and the second reagent is more
sensitive to lower pH ranges
(4.5 - 7.25). This combination gives you an ideal reading of your pH level.
Simply put, our single pad pH strips measure
a wider pH range more accurately.
Test your body regularly to make sure you’re
living the Alkaline Life!
