I've been monitoring my PH levels and according to my ND seem to be alkaline, being in the 7-7.5 range.

Why would an O be alkaline when suppose to have an acidic system?

Thank you for your thoughts!

My understanding on this matter, is that our body has too much acid that effects, us in unpleasant ways, so we want to avoid the acid causing foods, and make our bodies more alkaline, so we feel good inside and out.

Morning GS! This makes sense but then again don't we need a higher level of acidity for our O specific diet

Golfzilla,

This question intrigues me too. I have been striving so hard to achieve a more alkaline level and now I read that Type O's muscles need to be slightly acidic.

The question of acid/base balance in our body is very complicated. From what I have read so far (3 books on this subject), different organs of our body need different acidity to function properly (e.g. the stomach's acid level is much higher than other organs). I believe Dr. D is referring to the muscles in his book.

When do you measure your pH level? Our acidity fluctuates throughout the day. But I assume you measure your first urine in the morning? I read that the first urine is usually slightly acidic because it shows that the kidneys are doing their proper job--eliminating toxins that have built up overnight. The second urine, however, should be more accurate in reflecting your true acidity/alkalinity.

My guess is that we still need to achieve an optimum level of slight alkalinity to function well as a whole... and that should be reflected in our urine tests. (Maybe the muscles can be slightly more acidic.) Dr. D did mention balancing the acidic meat with vegies and fruits to avoid over-acidity. I hope this makes sense to you.

Morning! It does make sense but this is a new issue for me and I am one who needs the "whys & why nots" to understand... My ND had me do the tests strips for a week. Beginning the first morning was the saliva test as soon as I awoke, nothing to drink, eat, brush teeth, anything. Then urine test between breakfast and lunch. Last day (day 7) just like day 1 strating with saliva test upon awakening. My PH average was 7.36.

I too have been focussed on becoming more alkaline with my understand of being an O and too acidic. Taking NAP's Gastro D, drinking ginger tea, seltzer water, etc... Not sure where to go with this from here

One thing just came to mind. I have been taking Gastro Dsince the first of Nov '09 along with Nexuim in preparation of getting off Nexium. I have been off Nexium for about a month. Perhaps the double whammy could have created the alkaline state

And I quit drinking coffee about six weeks ago... Hmmm...

I think your test results show you are within the optimum range for a healthy internal body environment. In fact, your value is very close to the ideal pH, which is slightly alkaline.

I too wonder if Type Os' "ideal" pH should be more acidic or is it "one ideal pH fits all"?

I do not like to assume, but I suspect as nothing else in BTD is, PH is also not a one size for all

The healthy pH levels for each type are designed into the diet. When "used as directed" with a wide variety of foods from the recommended list, it does the job for you. give it time, and get rid of unnecessary medication whenever appropriate.

Thanks Lola, understood and agreed. I have just been trying to understand what my average means and if I am missing anything in helping to correct it. I might be a point off but certainly not off the scale. At least I'm not in the range of battery acid or clorox

I have been paying more attention to my ph balance with the foods I am eating. I researched online the listings of foods in a chart and which ones were acidic and which ones were more alkaline. The charts have conflicting foods: such as on one chart asparagus  was acidic and the other chart it was alkaline, also soy was questionable. Didn't know which chart was correct on the food listings.

that about the acid/alkaline balance is as unique as BTs/GTs/physiology all Dr D has been studying and analyzing their effects for decades.

he has included these differences when designing his diet plans.....

Very interesting article...2 things (1 slightly unrelated to this discussion)
I like where Mike says, "I hire people for their attitude and not their work history, because like viruses, bad attitudes can spread and suck the energy out of people."
My manager husband has similar views on attitude vs skills in prospective employees...

Also, did anyone notice Mike says he goes to bed by 10am??? Obviously a typo...
