For our purposes
we will be measuring urine and saliva. In a perfect world with other health
parameters in place, the pH of both urine and saliva will be right around the
6.4 level - and this would be at just about any time of day when tested - though
the best times to track and test for a baseline reading would be two hours after
Understand that pH
can move all over the place. This is so because most individuals "total
alkalinity" is not very strong. So two hours after a meal for instance, you
may find the urine going acid as it is a reflection of the meals acid components
pushing the pH. But as "total alkalinity" increases in an individual,
this swaying urine pH starts to lock in at the 6.5 level. This takes time to
The question may
arise as to why urine and saliva should be steady in the 6.5 area, and the
answer lies with the work of many researchers, most specifically in this regard
to Dr. Carey Reams. In our own clinical work with the research of Reams,
Vincent, Rivici and others, we strongly concur with the 6.5 level for urine and
The reason 6.5
seems to be ideal is for specific ionization principles to be carried out in the
body. Anytime we talk about the human body and biological terrain, we can relate
it to stories of farming and soil terrain for there is common ground in both
areas. After all, we do come from the dust of the earth and it is the dust of
the earth from which we will return (our bodies at least). pH is but one
parameter that quantifies the nature of the terrain.
When a plant
grows, it draws up from the cationic earth and reaches towards the anionic sky.
As one force of the plant spirals up, another energetic force spirals down. The
plant uptakes the water and minerals from the soil and ionizes, changes and
incorporates those substances into the fibers and matrix of the plant. In order
for the plant to reach its optimum and most healthy state (and nutritious when
talking about edible plants) the soil terrain must be within an ideal range of
When we eat the
plant, the process is reversed and the plant substance is broken down through
the pressure and resistance of digestion and the soil of the liver transforms,
stores and dispenses components of the life processes which are further acted on
by the soil of the cells and glands throughout the body.
It is the circle of life; highly charged, electric, and magnetic, some
might say electromagnetic or electrostatic.
I am reminded of a
story of this circle of life spoken of by Buckminster Fuller who was truly a
great thinker (you may recall the geodesic dome and Bucky balls). He was once
asked the question, what is fire? In a nutshell, he said that if you were to
watch a log burning in the fireplace, the fire you are seeing is the sun's
radiation unwinding. The sun's flame winds through the sky and through
photosynthesis is absorbed by the tree. The tree grows and for every year of its
life a growth ring forms showing a years worth of absorbing the sun's flame.
When the tree gets chopped down to a log and burned in the fireplace, you are
witness to the sun's flame coming back out.
It's the circle of life.
The food you
consume stores the flame of the sun. The more perfect your body's biological
terrain, the more capacity you will have to extract every ounce of the flame to
give you vibrant health and dynamic energy. The food you consume is met with the
resistance of digestion, and it is this resistance which causes a friction and a
release of energy in the form of amino acids and mineral ions, colloids, heat
hydraulic press. That press sits between your saliva pH of 6.4 and your urine pH
of 6.4. At that pH level the press has maximum force and effect to extract all
the energy food has to give. But if the saliva pH that is above the press or the
urine pH that is below the press shifts outside of the 6.4/6.4 range, the
efficiency of the press begins to fall. Hence, metabolic efficiency begins to go
askew, imbalance sets in, and over time problems can develop.
There is direct tie in to the pH of the body and the critical lymph network. The link below will give you a good insight on it, check it out.
