Why My High Acidity Urine?

Posted by Gipper (Naples) on 03/15/2007

My saliva ph is 6.5-7.0. My urine ph is 4.5. What could be wrong and what can I do to correct? I am taking the Ted formula for ACV and baking soda.

Dear Gipper: The urinary pH of 4.5 Sounds quite bad. If I had that my body it would indicate a serious state of sodium and water retention, in other words a bloating condition.

If this is not working out for you I found citrates to be of better help. Therefore take one lemon, or one whole lime and add enough baking soda until the fizz at least reduced, then add 1/2 glass of water. The baking soda should at least be about 1/2 teaspoon or above. Citric acid added with baking soda tends to raise pH a bit faster than the apple cider vinegar, but apple cider vinegar have the advantage of more energy.

Consider adding 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt in a drinking water. The mineral imbalances will be corrected and further help raise the pH to normal faster.

Certain foods you are eating must be causing extreme acid condition. Usually it is steaks, bread, white flour, cola, and coffee. Western diets are often lacking in fresh vegetables and fresh fruits.
