Saliva: watery secretion of the oral glands.

Overview

The pH of saliva tells a lot about the condition of the terrain i.e. its acidic condition which reflects how much waste the body terrain is burdened with.

Ideally, saliva should be 6.5 pH.  Saliva pH is NOT a reflection of the alkalinity or acidity of the food you eat, but of your body’s circulating waste levels, digestive capability, bowel efficiency, liver efficiency, hormonal balance between insulin and leptin, etc.

Fact is, the more acidic food you eat, such as sauerkraut, kimche, apple cider vinegar and fermented foods in general, the better.

Acid foods assist the body to release toxic waste and support liver and intestinal functions.

Under hydration (lack of water) causes the body to secrete insufficient saliva to cleanse the mouth and keep down tooth decay and periodontal (gum) infection.

Lack of saliva causes people to drink water or liquids with meals to assist swallowing, and liquids with meals dilute digestive enzymes and hamper digestion.
