01 Apr The Perfect pH

Reap what you Sow
Soil that is acidic does not produce an optimal yield for the farmer. A body that is acidic does not provide optimal health for its owner. Getting the alkaline acid balance right ensures the perfect environment for the body (and the farmers crop) to flourish. Studies prove that the more we are able to alkalise our body, the more energy, vitality and health benefits we will reap.

Alkaline V Acid
So what is the best pH reading for the body to be in balance? With the help of a Litmus strip your saliva or urine can be tested. A reading of 6.9 or under indicates an acid environment a reading of 7.1 or over indicates a more alkaline environment. If your reading is bang on 7.0 you are in neutral! Good work!


2:1 is the alkaline: acid ratio your body thrives under. Most bodies are suffering from the reverse especially if their owner is experiencing the following:

High stress job

High intensity exercise

High protein diet

Signs your body maybe a tad too acidic…

  • Feeling tired
  • Lacking energy
  • Joint and bone pain
  • Gassy, bloated tummy
  • Weight gain
  • Frequent colds and flu
  • Not so sparkly complexion
  • Lack lustre hair
  • Questionable dental hygiene


What am I eating a little too much of that could cause me to be more acidic?

  • Sugar
  • White flour
  • Grains
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Fried Foods
  • Meat
  • Eggs
  • Dairy
  • Fish

What can I include on my plate to alkalise my body?

  • Lemons
  • Avocados
  • Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe
  • Parsley
  • Papaya
  • Watercress
  • Kiwi Fruit
  • Pineapple
  • Apples
  • Cucumbers
  • Kale
  • Carrots

All these foods are high in fibre, low in fat and offer plenty of vitamins, minerals and anti-ageing antioxidants. What we need to create is a plate that ideally has the 2:1 ratio so two parts alkaline to one part acid. These action packed alkalising foods can make up any meal throughout the day.
