Ph level in your body

Does anyone here pay attn to her ph levels? Do you choose what foods to eat based on the foods' ph levels? Have you had any medical conditions that an allepath or doctor told you were based on excess acidity?

    I'm starting to think about this because there's a theory that the pH of a woman's vaginal fluids affects the gender of child she conceives, and that this is influenced by the pH of what she eats. So that chart might just come in handy!

    No. Most of it is scammy pseudoscience to sell diet plans and supplements.

    LIKE THAT MAGIC WATER?!?!?

    RCC, DO THEY HAVE IN IT IN TRADER JOES YET??

    They have it at whole foods. I went to a scam meeting for it one time, they wanted me to invest in a 5000 dollar machine because the water's pH was (I forgot LOL) but it cured cancer, and acne, bad breath, anger, it cured everything.

    They have the machine at whole foods for like 69 cent a jug of water, you can fill it up.

    pH is tightly regulated by your body; if your pH levels are measurably off you'd be so sick you probably wouldn't be able to read that chart.

    A shift in the acid-base balance is often one irrefutable way doctors determine whether or not a patient is terminal, and the shift is minuscule, as legends pointed about above.

    It's not something that can be controlled by diet. Perhaps the acidity of our waste products can be controlled through diet, but not our body's true acid-base balance. It would have to be this way, otherwise, simply eating an orange may be lethal. I was interested, however, to learn that citrus fruits are actually considered alkaline.

    Goodness, no, and I'm glad. I'd be telling people not to buy it!

    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

    Ok, so besides just trying to eat healthfully (whole foods, reasonably-sized portions, colorful fruits & vegetables, avoiding sugar & trans fat, etc.), there is no reason to pay attn to this list? I guess this is good news for me.

    which way does the theory go? what produces a boy vs. a girl?

    i do drink a higher ph water that is sold in whole foods called essentia. it's got a ph of 9.5. i started paying attention to this because i do think an acidic body (lots of meats and sugars, etc) can promote inflammation and acne, etc. i'm just trying to do everything i can to feel good and be healthy.

    The theory (and I have no idea if it works or not and haven't tested it) is that you want lower pH and acidic foods for a girl, higher pH and alkaline foods for a boy.

    but since the spermie determines the sex, wouldnt the father need to manage his pH levels? or is the theory that the secretions can kill certain spermies?

    Never heard it any of this by the way. all i know is certain foods can cause heartburn and such things.

    here's a pretty good article that explains the bodies pH and regulatory systems.

    Yeah, the theory - and it may be totally bogus - is that an acidic vaginal environment is a tougher condition for sperm than an alkaline one. And male sperm can swim faster, but they are more fragile and die faster, and have a hard time sticking around in an acidic environment, whereas female sperm are slower but hardier and they can manage to hang on in an acidic vagina. Something like that. The acid smokes out the boys faster. Can't hurt to try, right? Interestingly, I mostly eat the alkaline foods and I have two boys.

    My uncle's wife has one of those water machines. If she's going to be away from home for any length of time she brings water with her. During Christmas they stayed at my aunt's house for two nights and she brought a couple of gallons with her. I did not bother to hide my, "Are you f'ing kidding me" look at that one. She swears by it, but then she swears by every single thing that some internet guru talks about. Like, she once spent an hour explaining to me about how dangerous it is to eat fruit after 11am.

    pH of 9.5? That's not water. You'd have to add something to it to get it that alkaline.

    yes the essentia water has some processing to increase it's alkalinity. it tastes fine. i drink it 95% of the time but don't freak out if i have to have "regular" water from time to time.

    Truth.

    Wonky pH leads to illness and death.

    Yooo my friend did it for two weeks carrying around jugs of water. After that seminar they gave me and her friend some and we poured it out because we swore they were secretly poisoning us! :laughing2:

    I thought it was skeptical, It's the magic of placebo. They pour it in stuff and use a pH dye to compare or some crap and it came out a nice color but sprite was also close and I was like "so I can just drink sprite right?:laughing2:"

    This lady said her dog almost died and she gave him the water and he was more alive than ever before.

    If it was that magic why doesn't everyone use it? Why is it not mandatory?

    Then the woman got mad because I said we have alkaline water in our lab's at my school, and she was like THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE. Yes we do we have a tap that says alkaline water, fool.

    The experience felt like the beginning of a horror movie, I gave her a fake name when I left.


    It was pretty cray cray :evil3: that it could brew tea without the water being hot....
