I find the whole thing extremely confusing, but I'm intrigued. I did a questionnaire for the Hauser Diet which said I probably had an acidic pH and a fast oxidizer and classified me as an otter (needing high protein and healthy fats, very little carb). From what I understand, eating clean with the huge quantities of fresh vegatables should help with the pH. Not giving up the 2 cups of coffee and one diet soda, hurts.

I just got it straight that Dr. Ott (who I mentioned in my earlier post) isn't a biologist or chemist - he is a nutritionist. But he does have a PhD and has done a lot of research into this.

I guess there really are 2 different trains of thought on this whole issue. Everyone better study up and decide what is best for them.

My mom follows the ph Miracle plan and it's the only thing that has enabled her to lose her post-menopausal weight. When she follows it, she also doesn't get her food-related migraines. Hope that helps.

your can get to safe ph level by eating the right foods also, right? If seems that it is impossible to reach 5.8 then you may want a good check up.

Be the best you can be.

Kellicat, how can you order in bulk? Did you order from this same company? Thanks!

RED ALERT! RED ALERT!!!

Please disregard everything I have said previously. DH and I just met today with a biological chemist - Dr. A. True Ott,PhD, who heads a small company called Mother Earth Minerals, which sells basic mineral supplements. He actually spent close to an hour explaining to us how the recent hype about ph levels is just that - hype. He showed us that the optimal ph level is 5.8. Adding the ph drops makes it too alkaline - around 7 or 8, which makes it a free radical - not good.

I'm so glad we met with him today and found out about this. Now I just hope we can somehow return all those bottles of Plasma Ph we just bought!!!

It comes in 2 oz (I think) bottles, and we add 10 drops per quart, so it can go pretty fast. Once we became "fans", we went ahead and ordered in bulk to receive a discount. I think we saved about 40% that way. (I wish I could also get a discount for referring folks!)

Everyone should definitely check this out!!!

I'm curious to find out where we can get the drops too. I've also read about a "super green drink powder" that contains wheat grass, and many vitamins & minerals that's supposed to be very good too. I wonder who out there may have tried something like that?

I am so glad you started this thread. I have the ph strips and I am ALWAYS really high. I would love to get these drops and see if it changes things. Where can I buy the drops? I have read alot and eat alot of foods that have been suggested but so far there has been no change. Thanks, hugs, Wanda

DH and I have a distiller at home that we use for our drinking water. A few weeks ago we started adding ph drops to the water, and we cannot believe how great we feel! It has made a big difference (and we are pretty clean eaters as it is).

I am not aware of any "progams" per se, and I don't know what happens if you add the drops to regular tap or bottled water, but I would say the ph levels really do make a difference.

I have heard a lot lately about neutralizing the acid in one's body. Supposedly, if you you make your body less acidic & more alkaline, it's has a lot of health benefits. I know some of this stems from Dr. Young's ph Miracle book. Does anyone follow a program like this?
