Saliva: oral digestive juices secreted by the mouth that assist swallowing of food.


Ideally, saliva should be 6.5-7.0 pH.  However, saliva pH is NOT an accurate way to measure body fluid pH.

Saliva pH does NOT reflect the alkalinity or acidity of the food you eat, but of your body’s circulating waste hydrogen levels, digestive capacity, bowel efficiency, liver efficiency, hormonal balance and insulin/leptin resistance. levels

The more acidic is the food you eat, [sauerkraut, kimche, apple cider vinegar and fermented foods in general] the better, and the less acid waste there will be in the body.

pH is a measure of unburned hydrogen.  the ‘p’ stands for potential.

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

Lack of saliva causes people to drink water or liquids with meals to assist swallowing.  Liquids with meals dilute digestive enzymes and hamper digestion.  Insufficient saliva says the body is seriously low on sodium and bio-active magnesium.

pH acidic saliva [under 6-5] favors all manner of dental dis-ease from inflamed gums, periodontal dis-ease, carries [cavities], cavitations of jaw and head and infected root canals.

Urine pH is by far the best choice for getting an accurate reading of body fluid pH and the pH of the terrain.

Water intake should be 6-8 glasses/day spaced throughout the day. Water should be heavily supplemented with bio-active sea mineral ions to help neutralize metabolic acids and inability to non-thermally burn hydrogen ions.

The target range of desirable urine pH is 7-8.  See pH here.
