Oral pH Test Strips

Knowing your body’s pH levels are extremely important to your overall health.  Many diseases thrive in an Acidic environment, including tooth decay which begins at a pH of 5.2.  One way to test oral pH is through the use of test strips.  The body has it’s own system to keep things balanced and maintained within a health range (7.35-7.45), however the majority of food and drinks consumed on the “Modern Western Diet” are extremely acidic and the body is unable to adequately balance itself.

So unless you have been eating a very healthy diet, full of fresh vegetables and devoid of sugars, sweeteners, sports drinks, artificially flavored drinks, sodas etc, chances are good your oral pH is too acidic – and highly acidic diets have been linked to diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia and more.  http://www.cancerfightingstrategies.com/ph-and-cancer.html#sthash.5ZpUFqwB.dpuf
