Keeping YOUR body pH balanced on a daily basis is easy:
- Start your day with a warm lemon water.
- Eat more raw foods-leafy greens
- Exercise and managing YOUR stress
I use the pH strips to check how I am doing – saliva closely
parallels the blood when it comes to pH – the blood is what we
want to be pH neutral.
What happens to your body when pH neutral is that it helps
people keep disease away –
I have known older family members that raised gardens and
chickens and cows. Because they ate mostly what they raised
they lived to be in their late 80s and 90s without any major health

Over acidity has been linked to formation of cancer, heart disease,
diabetes, and osteoporosis.
For the last 15 years – I have bought organic chicken feet at the
local farmer’s markets and it is filled with collagen that even at 75
my skin – from toes to top of head are smooth and wrinkle free.
Cooking instructions for chicken feet broth:
Dump 5 lbs. chicken feet in crock pot
Pour in a couple table spoons of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar
Cook for about 10-15 hours.
Let cool, fill canning jars – or can put in freezer bags. Individual
portions so can have 1 portion a week. Can put roasted chicken
in and vegetables if like chicken soup. I just drink a cup of broth
once a week.
Also, once a week I juice chard and put turmeric into the juice.
So that the turmeric spreads into your body – pour a little Bragg’s
Olive oil and grind some black pepper into the juice. I keep that
juice in a hermetic covered glass jar in refrig and it lasts from
Sunday through Thursday.
Keeping disease away should be everyone’s goal for their
aging healthy and happy. My goal has been to stay healthy so
my children’s last weeks with me would not be in hospital but be
the active person I am.
Some people actually have too alkaline body naturally – and get
calcium deposits. Lactic acid helps neutralize this buildup and
helps bring the body back to pH balance. My uncle has
calcium deposits and passed in 1965 – when he was young he
was champion tennis player but his body calcified and was
never able to work and did not know Lactic acid would have
helped his disease.
All of the following can affect the pH levels in blood:
Having high acid diets are associated with gout and kidneys
Test your urine with the strips – but once you are on track with a
good alkaline diet and drinking good clean water you know that
your body is close to neutral 6.8 – 7.5. I do not believe that a
person can keep at the exact neutral of 7.2.
The book that really started me on the alkaline diet was
Dr. Baroody’s Alkaline or Die book – has all the numbers for all
Foods that you will be eating and helps in a wonderful way.
