What are the Three pH test
Saliva, Lemon and Urine Tests
Dr Anderson goes to great lengths to describe the human
system and the effects of eating a highly acid diet.
Eating acid forming foods such as bread, sugar, eggs,
meat, create electrolyte deficiencies. These test give us
an indication of the acidity levels of our bodies.
Test # 1 The Saliva Test
Place a sample of your saliva on a piece the pH test
papers. Compare the test paper to the color indicator on
The results will range from 6.0 to 7.1
6.0 or Below: May indicate serious depletion of
electrolytes and potential problems associated with
exercising or fasting. You must replenish your reserves
before doing and cleansing or strenuously exercise.
6.2 to 6.3: Indicates depletion. May not be serious, but
electrolytes are low.
6.4 to 6.8: You Passed! Very good sign.
7.1 or higher: Something may have interfered with the
reading, continue with test #2 and #3.
Test # 2 The Lemon Test
No food should be eaten for at least two hours before
testing. Cut and squeeze the juice of 1/2 of a lemon into
2 ounces of water. ( Do not us sweeteners )
Swish the juice in your mouth as you drink it. After
swallowing the lemon juice, wait 60 seconds and then check
your saliva using the ph papers. Do this every 60 seconds
for six minutes.
7.5 or higher: You Passed! Very good sign.
7.0 to 7.4: Indicates that you have some reserves of
alkaline minerals, but not as much a is needed. Work on
increasing your electrolyte reserves.
6.9 or below: Indicates a possible serious condition.
Electrolyte reserves are very low and the liver and
digestion are affected.
Test # 3 The Urine Test
In preparation eat only vegetables and vegetable juices
for 24 hours before testing. The next morning during you
first urination, wet a strip of pH papers in a mid-stream
7.0 or higher: You Passed! This indicates your body has a
good supply of electrolytes and is eliminating the excess
6.5 to 6.9: Indicates some depletion, although not a
serious one. Your body is storing some electrolytes but is
releasing some as well. Replenish your electrolytes fully
5.6 to 6.4: Depletion is more serious. At this point we
strongly recommend that you focus on replenishing your
electrolyte reserves before beginning a cleanse.
5.6 or below: a pH in this range indicates the body is
very depleted and has no electrolyte reserves. It is
unlikely that you would have passed tests #1 and #2. The
only cleanse you should consider is the Mildest Phase
which allows 2.5 meals per day.
During the Cleanse the urine test will not give you an
accurate measurement, this is due to the removal of stored
acids. Thus the urine will have a very low pH. The saliva
and the lemon tests, however, should continue to give you
a reliable reading while doing a cleanse.
Those who do not score a passing pH should stop eating
acid-forming foods. Your body needs a diet rich in
alkaline-forming foods that are high in organic sodium,
potassium, calcium and magnesium.
It is important to reach the required ph levels before
continuing on to the deeper cleansing of the
Power or Master Phases.
