I must admit to being a little obsessive about testing my salive pH with pH tape. Since I became completely LFRV 12 days ago my pH is more acidic than it was before. I am now hovering between 5.8…Continue
"Thank you Bart! I agree with you that measuring the pH of the saliva is not without its merit. I was just pointing out that it is not a reliable method of determining the acidity of your whole digestive tube. And I was trying to emphasize the…"
"I believe that there is some merit in measuring the pH of your saliva. The pH in your mouth has an effect on the de-mineralization/re-mineralization processes of the teeth, and having your mouth very acidic all the time can have a negative…"
"Fruit is making your mouth more acidic, not your whole digestive tube. Measuring the pH of saliva is not a reliable method of measuring the pH of your intestines. Saliva is supposed to be slightly acid and fruit is more acid than grains…"
"PLEASE people! blood is a buffer! the change in blood PH changes in a VERY NARROW range.
the only thing that can serve you decide whether your body is acidic or basic is your urine. That's why i asked her earlier to test her urine. "
"Blood will ALWAYS be maintained within a certain tight range. Going one way or another is fatal. The body goes to great lengths to keep it there. It will leach calcium from the bones and teeth and also store acidity in the tissue."
"A lot of fruit like citrus are very acidic until digested and that's when it leaves and alkaline "ash" and has an alkalizing effect. You wanna look at the pH of your blood, not your saliva.
If you eat fruit and then test…"
"are you eating a POUND or two or greens? because a huge HUGE salad may only be about half a pound…depends on what you consider huge. i wonder if upping how many greens you eat would decrease your saliva pH"

I am a fitness and health obsessed divorced mom of 2 trying to find balance and super health in this toxic world. : )
After many years as a fitness instructor, and many years of trying a number of different "healthy" eating lifestyles, I came upon the raw food diet a couple of years ago. I have been struggling with it... and loving it at the same time. I couldn't imagine going back to anything close to the SAD diet. I have even been giving raw food classes and dinners locally.
However, I was struggling with falling off the wagon into bad food every once in a while and feeling terrible mentally and physically afterwards. I was gaining weight because, as I now know, of the high fat nut and seeds diet I was eating.
The 80/10/10 diet is something I really want to give a try (as I sit here eating my entire pineapple for lunch). So far I feel fantastic, but it's only been a few days of this hard core.

Brit was wondering if you buy organic or conventional fruits and veggies? I buy conventional but want to change over to organic as funds will allow. Was going to shop at Heritage but wow they are soooooo expensive, mark up is so high. Do you know of another place that has fruit in the area that's organic? Have a fruit fulled day.....! <3
Well your not alone, I haven't found anyone out this way either. Thinking that there is not a lot of lfrv here in the hampton roads area. Would be nice to be able to connect with and share info with other lfrv's in our area. That's why I made a group called Hampton Roads 811, so far no one has joined, maybe it's just the two of us. Have a great fruity day :)
