The story behind our pH kits and other fine products.
People often call and want to know my story. What was the drama that led me to question the world around me, then to find the answer in a simple pH test strip. I spent the first 37 years of my life living in the delusion that someone else was responsible for my health. I felt safe and secure knowing that government agencies had only my best interest in mind. No one ever talked about our body pH levels.
If I developed a disease Western Medicine would be there to save me. I followed all the rules. I worshiped at the sacred food pyramid of my youth, made sure vaccinations were up to date and took over the counter medications with impunity. I believed that we were immune from the diseases that plagued third world countries. Even though pH testing is the most common laboratory test, no doctor ever checked my pH levels or did any type of pH test.
Three things happened to turn my life and belief system around. At age 37 my youngest son was born severely allergic to the world around him, my father died of throat cancer and I became overweight, sick and tired. It was as if someone had turned on the light and for the first time I realized staying well was a responsibility that belonged to me alone—with no one else to blame.
Only I could balance acid/alkaline pH levels in my body with healthy alkalizing foods and regular pH testing. Out of necessity, I walked into my first health food store at age 40, and have not looked back. Much to my surprise I lost 20 pounds following the same non-allergenic, pH balanced diet I was feeding my son. The weight continued to come off and I noticed I felt better when my pH testing of urine was in the 6.8 to 7.2 pH test range. I became a sponge for pH understanding, soaking up all the information I could on pH testing and health. The main thing I learned is that acid/alkaline ratios coming into the body by way of food and drink, is the healthiest and most natural way to balance body systems.
While looking for the cause of our ill health, friends and family encouraged me to write The Feel Good Food Guide: Easy Recipes Free of Sugar, Wheat, Yeast, Corn, Eggs, Dairy and Soy! It was a creative release for me, an expression of my gratitude for all who came before me looking for answers. We now offer the (2006) ten year anniversary edition of The Feel Good Food Guide with a new sub title; Making the pH connection between acid-forming foods and common allergenic foods!
At first I thought that if I controlled the world around my family we would be fine. I soon realized that was impossible. Allergies and disease were the symptoms, the over acidification of the blood the cause. Controlling the world around us was only part of the answer, cleaning-up our inner terrain and doing regular pH testing was the answer I had been looking for. I needed to share what I had learned. That was the birth of our Home Test pH Kit. This pH test is a simple and inexpensive way to monitor our body's inner terrain. Simple pH testing is a tool that everyone can use successfully.
Our pH test kit includes a 15' foot roll of pH test material in a 5.5 to 8.0 range in .2 increments. Along with the pH test material I have included a 40 page pH book filled with the research and ideas of some of the leaders in the field of pH balance. The pH book contains an extensive acid/forming and alkaline/forming foods list, and 8 easy and delicious recipes. In addition, a bonus pocket card to take with you as a reminder of which foods build up and which foods tear down pH levels. The pH book is filled with easy to read tidbits of pH testing information that I have gleaned over the years, directions for pH paper use, pH chart, food diary and much, much more. This simple little pH book contains all the pH information I wish I had had before the health problems occurred in my son, my father and myself.
Not only is there acid rain in our outer world, but acid fluids destroying our inner terrain as well, silently doing damage. Because it seems cruel to let you know what is wrong and not give you a way of correcting it, we offer many pH products to help alkalize and balance your body pH levels. I can't come to your home and fix meals for you, but I can show you how to do it for yourself.
