The Acid – Alkaline PH Scale

The Acid - Alkaline PH Scale

As you can see from the chart above the PH Scale is read from left to right with a PH rating of 0 – 1 being purely acidic (something akin to eating a hole through metal).  On the other end of the scale is a rating of 14 which represents pure alkalinity (these would include items like baking soda and lye).  In the center is 7 which represents neutral. 
In a perfect state your blood wants to be more alkaline than acidic.  Just as the average healthy body premature for a human is 98.6F – the ideal (healthy) PH level for the human body is between 7.3 – 7.4. 
In his groundbreaking book, “Sick and Tired”, Dr. Robert O. Young chronicled how the proper PH balance provides for a “healthy inner terrain” and how the improper PH balance can lead to illness and disease. 
Over the next few days I will offer simple examples of foods and drinks that will help you move towards alkalinity and I will also share with you foods and drinks that create an acidic environment.  I will also show you simple methods that you can use to test your own PH levels.
Remember, health is a journey…it is not a destination.
Yours In Health!

    This is cool. I’d like to know how it’s determined what is “good for a person” as far as alkalinity and acidity is concerned. Fastcinating.

  2. Thank you for bringing it to the surface and making it concrete why we need to care about the PH state of our bodies. I’m particularly looking forward to your discussions of simple ways that we can assess that ourselves! Since I have had WLS, I take an acid reducer. Could you include addressing that sort of issue in your explanation of our acidity/alkaline states? Namely, since I take an acid reducer, might I tend towards being more acidic or more alkaline? Does taking an acid reducer hinder our absorption of alkaline foods? Does it have a different affect than say an acid blocker medication?

  3. Thanks for the informative post. I’m anxious to see what kind of foods regulate the body’s Ph levels. Does heartburn come from too much acidity in the foods, or the body’s response to the food you’ve taken in?

    I am so glad that you are going to address this in more depth. I have read about it it Dr. Susan Lark’s Newsletter. But I have no idea how to tell if I am one or the other.

    This is going to be a great journey. I have been drinking 9.5pH water for over a year now and the idea that I can do even more by eating the proper foods is something I am looking forward to learn more about.


  6. This is so cool. Can’t wait to figure out my ph and learn how to move it in the right direction.
    Looking forward to more.

  7. I see now more and more people selling alkaline water. Now all of this information is starting to make sense.

  8. Golly ! I think that perhaps I am wrong in saying that chocolate will improve my Alkaline level . That’s a blow .

  9. Naomi Bettencourt says:

    How do you determine a body’s pH level? For example, I know (I think I know) that the stomach is acidic, but the uterus is alkaline. How do you define the pH of the body overall?

    Hi Gary!
    This is a very new filed for me! I did not know that the PH level for a human body is 7.3/7.4
    I am sure that the practical information that we will be learning in the next posts will be very usefull!

  11. Perfect I’m coming back to learn more!

  13. This is very interesting! I look forward to reading about what foods can help!

    (By the way, did you know that there is a very similar site to yours in name? My British / Irish upbringing caused me to type ‘centre’ instead of ‘center’, (it couldn’t have been the fault of my frazzled brain!), and is a rather old site).

    Can’t wait to find out how to test my own PH level! I’ll be back to get more info!!!

  15. Peggy Larson says:

    I look forward to those methods to calculate the pH. I’m fascinated with this topic.


  16. Dan Doubroff says:

    it’s great that people are more open to hear about this now – 20 years ago it was considered to be about as valid as sorcery!

  17. Michael says:

    Very cool scale. I will be back to learn more

    Looking forward to learning more!

  20. Thanks for starting to teach us about the Acid – Alkaline PH Scale.
    Really looking forward to learning how to test where we’re currently at and then how to change it for the better.

    Dr. Young has done some fascinating research and shows us how to acheive peak health.

    I can’t wait to take a look at You examples of food and drink. And can’t wait to try some of them 🙂
    Good work Gary!!

    Hi Gary,
    I am happy to hear there is easy way’s to test the body’s PH level. I never really thought about my body’s PH level and really want to know what it is. Also, I know, that being out of balance leads to other problems and breakdown of functions, I am interested in hearing how to maintain that balance.
