The past few weeks have been filled with too many cookies, drinks, and any other form of sugar we can get our hands on. Luckily, I have been using HealthyWiser pH Strips to keep a check on my pH levels during this time that can be an energy drain. I want to be sure, as a mom of 4, that I’m on top of my health game. Something as simple as testing my saliva can help me do that.
Why check pH levels, and what does that have to do with the holidays? According to healthy-wiser.com:
If your pH is too acidic it can cause:
✔ Energy drain, headaches and indigestion
✔ Bone degeneration
✔ Muscle loss
✔ Insulin sensitivity that results in weight gain and increased risk for diabetes
If your pH is too alkaline it can cause:
✔ Nerve and joint pain
✔ Body stiffness
Basically, any variant from your body’s normal pH level means that you can easily get sick. Taking 15 seconds a day to check our saliva and/or urine will help you keep tabs on this. Any abnormal readings should be discussed with your doctor. My blog is not a medical source, just a collection of things that I’ve used that have helped me keep tabs on my health! Please keep that in mind.
I did a check on my saliva (an hour after eating) and got a “perfect” pH level. That’s good, but it doesn’t mean it always will be. With 100 strips, I can check my saliva a few times a day with the HealthyWiser pH Strips (you can purchase these on Amazon). The pack will last about a month if I am checking both urine and saliva once or twice a day.
Interested in giving these a try? I’m running a quick giveaway through the end of the year. If you missed out, or just don’t feel lucky, check out healthy-wiser.com.
