pH is the measure of acidity with a normal saliva reading being around 7.0-8.0. pH paper can be purchased for less than $10. Acidic conditions relate to an increase in pain, mental/emotional issues and low energy. Some advocate a whole food diet which will lower acidic conditions. The minerals sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium are used to buffer acidic conditions, so lack of these will increase acidity. The body will convert these to the bicarbonate form naturally. Use of bicarbonates can do the job fast in my opinion, sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate and magnesium bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate = baking soda which is cheap and easy to find. The other two are more difficult to obtain. The only issue with baking soda is the higher amount of sodium, the link below addresses this issue.
Here is an excellent post about alkalizing remedies. http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/alkalizing_formulas.html
I particularly like the fresh lemon recipe. (lemon bicarbonate)
4. LEMON BICARBONATE FORMULA
This simple formula will normalized many biological parameters, pH, ORP, phosphates, bicarbonates and antioxidants of vitamin C. A potential miracle water. One whole lemon freshly squeezed. Keep adding baking soda slowly bit by bit until the fizz stops. Then you will add water to one half glass. This is often taken twice a day. To be taken once in the morning and once before bedtime on an empty stomach.
