Acid Or Alkaline - Which is
cholesterol counts. Forget calories and fat grams. Forget blood pressure,
blood sugar, hormone levels, or any of the other markers of health you're
used to at the doctor’s office. It turns out that the single measurement
most important to your health is the pH of your blood and tissues - how
acidic or alkaline it is. Different areas of the body have different ideal
pH levels, but blood pH is the most telling of all.
alkalinity in the body are measured by the pH (potential of hydrogen) scale.
Water has a pH of 7.0 and is considered neither acid or alkaline but
An acid body is unhealthy. While each organ has its own pH balance, it is
generally agreed that a healthy person's saliva will register between 7.2
If your pH
is between 6. and 6.5, you are becoming acidic and therefore developing one
or more of 150 degenerative diseases. These will take time to develop, and
perhaps you have been diagnosed with one at this time, because of your
If your pH
is below 6.0, then you are highly acidic. You will have become very mineral
deficient and have definitely developed illnesses and disease at this point.
A balanced diet contains 40% acid forming
foods and 60% alkaline. To test your pH level, you can purchase pH
Strips, or one of the several pH test kits available in the market
The following table will give you an
idea of the pH values of common substances:
|| pH Value
| Stomach acid
| Lemon Juice
| Orange Juice
| Tomato Juice
| Black Coffee
| Baking soda
| Milk of Magnesia
| Domestic Bleach
| Caustic Soda
The recommended percentage of acid/alkaline seems to be all over the board.
Some people recommend 35%-65% acid/alkaline ratio for a balanced pH;
others insist on 20-80. However, it seems like an average person should be
in good shape with a 40-60 acid/alkaline diet. Please consult with your
healthcare expert for his/her professional recommendation.

AlkaMax for Restoring pH Balance
several ways to raise your pH balance or to restore
it to an acceptable level. If you've tried eating
the right food (see
Food chart to post on your refrigerator)
and your progress is slow, you might want to try
AlkaMax. We've tried AlkaMax and it took only a few
days to see the results. Because AlkaMax is a
natural supplement, it was approved by our
Naturopath Doctor for raising the pH level. AlkaMax
can be used for restoring the pH balance, bone/joint
health, fatigue caused by acidic conditions, acid
indigestion and heartburn. We prefer AlkaMax over
Tums and other antacids which are not recommended as
a long-term solution because of the potential damage
they can cause. If you have any questions, allergies
or any other comments you can contact TriMedica's
AlkaMax comes in liquid,
powder and capsule form.
We've used the capsules because it contains
de-glycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL),
which is safe for people with high blood pressure.
Although you will notice that the warning says that
due to licorice contents it is not recommended for
patients with high blood pressure, according to our
Doctor that is not true. DGL is
made from licorice from which the glycyrrhizin has
which can raise blood pressure. You can do your own
research to find out exactly what DGL is. Blood
pressure patients need to be careful as to which
form they should select. For example, they should
not use the powder form of AlkaMax because it
contains licorice, rather than the safer
Another thing we recommend (especially for cancer
patients) is to purchase a digital pH tester rather
than using the paper strips that come with AlkaMax.
It is well worth the money. We believe the paper
strips are pretty useless and strongly recommend
that you purchase a digital pH tester. We have one
brand of pH tester listed later on this page.
You should be able to find AlkaMax at your local
health food store. If not, you can do a search on
the Internet and purchase it online.
We didn't know about
AlkaMax 5 years in ago (in 2004) or else we would
have tried this product. We have experienced some
very good results from this product both for
indigestion as well as raising our pH level.
If you have high blood pressure make sure that you
only use AlkaMax in the Capsule form.

Cell Power Drops
Just like AlkaMax, this is another product that we didn't know about in the past. Cell Power drops were recommended to us by one of our doctors. We have used it regularly in recent years and if we knew about this product back in 2004 it would have been on top of our list because of its health benefits and the ability to provide oxygen at the cellular level.
As research has shown (and we have documented it in several articles and links on this Web site), cancer cells can't thrive in alkaline environment because they like acidic environment. By giving more oxygen, we make our body alkaline. Although it is not advertised as such, Cell Power drops does things for our body that we believe we should do to fight cancer, or to avoid it in the first place. It raises pH level, it provides oxygen at the cellular level, and gives you more energy. If we want an ideal supplement, we would want these three things in that ideal supplement. According to the manufacturer, these are some of the benefits and highlights of Cell Power drops:
1. Cell Power improves assimilation absorption of all nutrients and supplements.
2. Balances pH faster than any other supplement on the market.
3. Boosts immune system response.
4. Improves breathing and respiratory challenges.
5. Speeds healing inside and out.
6. Soy and gluten free.
The second item is quite a claim "Balances pH faster than any other supplement on the market." We have yet to find a product on the market that raises pH level faster than this product. You can purcahse Cell Power drops in 1 oz. or 2 oz. size. We have been purchasing the 2 oz. size because it is much more economical. It is very convenient to use and the results are great. Not only it helps you by normalizing the pH level, it supports the body's natural healing processes, and most importantly it brings pure ozygen to the body at the cellular level. We believe this is what people need to fight cancer. And that's not all, one of the biggest benefits of this product that we have consistently experienced is that it gives you energy. Yes, Cell Power gives you energy quickly but without making you feel wired up like caffeine does. And unlike caffeine it doesn't make you feel your heart is racing. If you feel lack of energy, or feeling sleepy when driving even though you had a good night sleep, Cell Power drops can help.
How to Use the Product
You can read up more on the Positive Power Nutrition Co. Web site, or where you purchase the product but the nice thing about this product is that you can take Cell Power anytime of the day, mix it with water or your favorite juice, don't even need to refrigerate it, and the product doesn't expire for years. We usually mix it well in a cup of water. We have even taken it just before going to bed and it doesn't keep you awake (again, this is not like caffeine or other drugs), it only gives you energy and make you feel alive and vibrant but doesn't mess with your sleep. We often take it before our long business meetings to prevent us from dozing off :). We wish we knew about this product in college because we could avoided drinking barrels of soda pop.
The directions on the bottle suggest 5-10 drops a day in 12-20 oz. of fluid which after a month or so can be increased to 15 drops 3 times a day. As always, you should check with your healthcare provider before you take any supplement. Our doctor recommended what's on the bottle and after a while when our pH was more stable we now take 10 drops in a 12 oz. cup of water once a day. Sometimes we will take more. It really depends on what your goal is and why you are taking this supplement.
Where to Purchase the Product
We don't know the manufacturers and they don't know us. We don't get any kickbacks from the maker of Cell Power or any other product mentioned on this Web site. We have used Cell Power and find it benefiical and that's why we are sharing this information with you. You may be able to find better deals at other places but (at the time of writing on September 2, 2014) we have been ordering it from Amazon.com because they have the best deal that we found for the 20z. bottle. You can do an Internet search for "Positive Power Nutritionals Cell Power drops."
Here's what the Amazon's Web site says about Cell Power drops. For whatever it's worth, this product has received a rating of 4.6 out of 5.0 stars in Amazon's customer reviews.
"Cell Power's Oxygenation and Detoxification can improve your quality of life. Dissolves infections bacterial, fungi, mold and parasites, and disrupts viruses. Cell power is rapidly absorbed by the body through the mucous linings of the mouth, throat and esophagus. Cell power increases the bio-availability of nutrients from food and supplements, supports the body's natural healing processes, normalizes PH levels and increase cellular respiration, brings pure oxygen to the body at the cellular level."
