Body pH
Posted on 10 May 2012 12:03 PM
I would like some clarification regarding the pH levels of individuals. What are your thoughts on blood pH, saliva pH and urine pH? What is ideal for each of those?

The blood pH always has to be a constant 7.4 pH level (7.398 to be more accurate) or you will die.

The saliva pH, in order to be used to indicate cellular pH levels, should never be taken when someone is awake and standing because the body will mobilize alkaline reserves to the mouth in order to deal with any foods coming in. The saliva pH must be tested when you have been lying down for at least 5 hours and then you take a strip of test paper and place it in your mouth, forcing saliva upon it while you are still horizontal. When you have taken that reading, take a new piece of the test paper and take the urine pH. Any part of the stream will do. Add these 2 numbers together and divide by 2 and you will have a good rough idea of what your cellular pH level actually is.

The reason they ask you about any over the cotuner drugs you have taken in the past 72 hours is to see if you will have any false positives for recreational drugs. Every drug has its own time period that it is detectable for, most drugs are 2 to 4 days, marijuana can be up to 30 days but that is only with heavy use. If you smoked weed only once a week before, then you will most likely pass the test. If you were a habitual smoker for the past month before that though, then you run a good chance of failing it, if so get a system cleaner. If you are a smaller person with a high metabolism it will get out of your system a lot faster. If you are really worried I would recommend you start exercising and drinking a lot of water and tea until you have to take the test. School tests are known to be very cheap and inaccurate though and I knew someone who had to take tests at school and was a drug user, and would simply dilute their urine with 90% water from the bathroom sink and the school never noticed the tampering because they used a cheap enough test.
