Body Chemistry and Healing
Healing happens in a certain chemical environment within the body. Anything outside of that range slows down the healing process. For that reason, we evaluate a person's pH or chemical balance in order to determine if there are some things we need to shift to allow healing to happen more readily. The ideal pH of the saliva is 6.8. Once we have placed a "stressor" on your alkaline reserve, the saliva pH would ideally be 8.0. Based on your results you may need to adjust your diet as well as add some alkalinity enhancing supplements to your daily regime.
