Blood and body pH are in fact two different measurements. Normal processes of the body continually produce acids (compounds that release hydrogens in a watery solution; acids have a low pH) and their opposite, bases (compounds that accept hydrogens from a watery solution; bases have a high pH) which must be carried by the blood to the organs of excretion. The blood must do this without allowing its own acid-base balance to be affected. To accomplish this, some proteins act as buffers to maintain the blood’s normal pH. They pick up hydrogen ions when there are too many in the blood (the more hydrogen, the more concentrated the acid) Likewise, protein buffers release hydrogens again when there are too few in the blood. The secret is that the negatively charged side chains of the amino acids can accommodate additional hydrogens (which are positively charged) when necessary.
In order to survive, the body must maintain the proper acid/alkaline (pH) balance. The optimum pH of the blood is somewhat alkaline, 7.3-7.4, and various tissues and organ systems vary from these numbers. Since all metabolic reactions are dependent on the pH, which is to say they only operate ideally within a certain range of pH, the organism must stabilize the blood-pH within a narrow range of between 7.36 and 7.44 (many researchers feel the range is actually much smaller). Only in this range is the blood ideally supplied with oxygen. If the blood pH goes over 7.44, there is a risk to develop degenerative conditions. The pH balance can be affected by many factors including the food we eat, stress, pollution and the quality of our thoughts and emotions. If this balance cannot be maintained, the body will begin to break down and die. The body is constantly striving to maintain this balance, and there are many processes by which this is accomplished.
The potential of Hydrogen & Oxygen (pH Alkaline) is a key factor in attaining alkaline balance. The Hydrogen/Oxygen matrix (Alkaline pH) is the bringer and protector of life, it carries the life-giving form. The body is 75% water or H2O. Which means that there are two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen. Thus, there are twice as many hydrogen atoms as oxygen contained within a water molecule.
The scale that is used for measuring the pH, or hydrogen ion concentration … is from 0 to 14, with 7 being the neutral point. The scale for the concentration of hydrogen ions is called the pH value. This stands for potential Hydrogen or strength of the hydrogen. The pH value indicates whether a solution reacts alkaline, neutral, or acid. In a neutral solution, such as pure water, the pH is exactly 7. The pH of an acid solution is less than 7, the pH of an alkaline solution is higher than 7. Thus, an Alkaline Body pH means that the pH of the blood is above 7 with the ideal pH being 7.35. Outside of this range - the body activity is no longer optimal and the metabolism is out of balance.

IMPORTANCE OF JUICING January 2012 upload

It is important to regularly cleanse the body to get acid/alkaline under control..., which takes time. It is not easy to reverse acidity once we become too acidic. After it is under control, we have to support the body nutritionally to build new cells. We are in an era of malnutrition because of the lack of minerals available in the soils where our foods are grown and the choices that we make with daily food intake. What we have is a lot of food but very little nutrient value in it. Increase your body's level of oxygenation by drinking alkaline water and the enzymatic 'Liquid Life' found in Vegetable Juices and raw plant-based whole foods, regular exercise and plant-based whole superfoods.
Consider monitoring the
body pH level on at least a weekly basis.
Monitor daily if you so desire. It is a good practice to be aware of the
Alkaline/Acid condition of your body. The pH is measured by a urine or saliva
test … which is very simple to do and requires less than a minute of your time.
Find Hydrion pH Testing Strips which are available through most drug stores and some
health food stores. These are color coded into a general pH range … and you
should look for test strips that will register half-point increments. When using
these test strips as your guideline … balance the body pH between 7 and 7.5. If
the test strips read above 7.5 consume acid forming foods or beverages until it
stabilizes between 7 and 7.5. Do Not exceed this range for excessive alkalinity
can also cause some health related problems such as: indigestion, cramps,
drowsiness, itching, sore muscles, creaking joints, etc.
To maintain health, the diet should consist of 60% alkaline forming foods & 40% acid forming foods.
To restore health, the diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming foods & 20% acid forming foods.
The pH of the body is influenced by metabolic subproducts and our diet. Thus, pH is directly affected by the various categories of food that we eat and the internal mechanisms involved in their processing. Some foods that are acid in their composition can become alkalinizing following metabolization, e.g. lemons. Accordingly, it is to become more consciously aware of the impact that various food groups and our eating habits have on the internal environment of the body.
