pH and Fertility

Did you know that for Human conception to occur Both the Sperm and Egg must be at exactly 7.4 pH?
Not 7.0, not 7.7 but 7.4 which is slightly Alkaline. It is amazing that the beginning of Human Life starts in an Alkaline environment, or it doesn’t start at all!

One of the Secrets to a long and healthy Life is to live an Alkaline Lifestyle.

Because the Vagina and Uterus in a woman are part of their body, it is obvious that there will be a connection to the pH of those organs with the overall pH of the Entire Human Body.

For example: If you jump in the ocean and the temperature of the ocean is 68 degrees and you are 98.6 degrees, eventually you are going to be 68 degrees. The ocean is not going to be warmed by you, but you are going to be cooled by it to its temperature of 68 degrees.
Just like you in the example above, the reproductive organs can only sustain their proper pH environment if the general body pH level is in the right range.

Once the body’s pH range becomes acidic so will the various organs in the body.
On the premise that being overweight is the body’s response to too high a level of general body Acidity, that would explain why in the South Florida Area, the number one stated reason for women having Bariatric Surgery is to be able to have children. The reasons why female fertility decreases or stops, in relation to body fat and pH levels, are explained more fully in a book entitled:
Female Fertility and the Body Fat Connection by Rose Frisch
Check for availability

If you are having Fertility problems, I recommend both the man and woman read the Book.
Rose was a Harvard Professor, who with her husband, were commissioned to study what amount and type of food was required to feed the whole world’s population everday.Being scientists they broke the study into 2 basic premises;

  1. Were the nutritional requirements of Women different than Men
  2. If they were different requirements, what were those requirements and what foods provided the minimum requirements for each.

    Her studies revealed the following:
  • Healthy and fit women, from puberty to late in life, should have approximately twice the body fat of a Healthy and fit man(please understand there are many types of body fat, some good, some undesirable)
  • That from Birth and through out life women require different quantities of certain nutrients then men require
  • That when women’s body fat levels(ph level) fall below or above the narrow range for Optimal health, fertility is affected
  • That when women lose a certain proportion of their body weight within a short period of time, fertility is affected

Excess Acid in the body = Excess body weight in a form of fat comprised of stored acid.
So if you want to eliminate excess body fat, reduce your body acid level by living an Alkaline Lifestyle.
Besides infertility, one indication of an overly acidic body is vaginal yeast infections.

Did you know that the presence of vaginal yeast infections can be determined by using pH Test paper to check the vaginal secretions?
An acid test result will generally confirm the presence of an infection.

Please note: Some infections in the vagina can cause sterility.

Ask a Gynecologist and they will explain to you that this is a valid Medical Test.

Since conception is a two part process the man’s sperm also has to be in the proper pH range. Here is an excerpt from an article dealing with a home fertility test kit called “Fertell” which tests both a man and woman:

“Fertell comes with two tests: a motile sperm test for men and a hormone test for women.”
“Typically at a medical lab, the sample would be put through many more tests. The semen would be analyzed for volume, pH and viscosity, all of which can affect fertility. It would also be placed on a slide, where the sperm would be counted and analyzed. Then the sperm would be stained and evaluated in terms of size and shape.”

What does the pH of Your Pool have to do with you?

Subtitle: pH Testing of Bodies of Water (Pun intended)

Summer time is here and for those who have a swimming pool the daily challenge is to keep the pool looking sparkling clear .If you have a pool or have ever maintained one you know about using a pH test kit.

I have had two pool homes and like many people I attempted to balance the pool pH myself, before delegating it to a Pool Service professional. I succeeded in pH balancing the pool, but only after 3 months of watching my pool turn from clear to green overnight and then back to an orange color before I figured out how to keep the chemical balance with in the proper range. Once I got the chemical ratios right the pH Level stayed within the proper range and the pool water was crystal clear.

So what does the pH of Your Pool have to do with you?

  • Like the swimming pool, you are a Body of Water with an optimal pH range
  • If your pH Balance gets out of whack, like the pool, you can turn green too!
  • Both the pool and the Human Body have chemical balances, which the pH Level reflects

Here are "excerpts" from an article I just read about the importance of maintaining your swimming pool pH level and what will happen if you don’t get it right:

Crystal Clear
How to keep your pool as clean as the day you opened it
Date of article: June 7, 2007
“Now that your swimming pool is open for the season - it must be by now, right? - how do you keep the water sparkling clean?
What's water chemistry? In the world of swimming pools, it means regularly adding industry-designed chemicals to control microorganisms in the water. The right combination of chemicals not only keeps water cleaner, it can prolong the life of expensive equipment, from electrical components in the pump and filtering system to the pliable vinyl liners..”

“Regardless of the pool - in-ground or above - or its major sanitizing-additive - traditional chlorine or the newer salt-based systems - its water must be tested for pH, a measure of hydrogen ion concentration;”

“Total alkalinity is measuring the water's resistance to change in pH.”

The best for Last:
"The only way to really make sure your water is chemically balanced is to test it regularly,"

When I read this article I mused to myself the similarities and parallels of Swimming pools and the Human body.
Do you see it too?

How about the part where the article mentions how balancing the pH "can prolong the life of "expensive pumps,filters and linings?

The human body has a pump,filters and linings too,right?

Have you priced out a new Human heart lately?
Just like figuring out how to balance the swimming pool pH takes time and effort, so does adjusting the pH Balance of your body.

Yet unlike the pool your body is the most complex biological mechanism in the known universe.
If balancing a home pool is tough, what if you didn’t even know about, or how to balance the pool of water called your body?
If you have ever had a Blood Test done such as a CBC, and you have a copy, go check and you’ll find a Blood pH level indication on the report. If you never realized the importance of Body pH before, I suggest now is a good time to start learning the Life extending benefits of a properly pH Balanced body
If you mess up balancing the swimming pool you can just call in a Pool Service company and everything will be OK.
You can’t do that with your body. No drug will keep you balanced, no service company will keep you balanced, only living an Alkaline Lifestyle can do that.

Testing your body's pH daily is a good start.

To do that will require pH Testing paper.To get the correct type for testing, send an email requesting How To:

You will recieve a short report, "How to pH Test", and more information on how you can start extending the life of your body's pump,filters and linings.

The Fires Within: Acid caused Inflammation as the cause of Most Disease

Follow up to the Post on Alzheimer's.

In a February 23 2004 front page article in Time Magazine there was an article entitled:
The Fires Within.

When people ask me why I test my pH daily with pH paper,I mention The Fires Within article.

The premise of the article is that Inflammation in the Human Body is the probable source of all disease.The article was by Christine Gorman and is available from Time magazine as a download at Time Archives.The article is 8 web pages long and filled with brilliant insights into the acid and alkaline balance of the human body.

Here is a nugget from the Time article:

"Indeed, half of all heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol levels. Not only that, as imaging techniques improved, doctors found, much to their surprise, that the most dangerous plaques weren't necessarily all that large."

My thoughts:
The article is laced with references to Drugs.Yet it hints that drugs are not the solution but that Lifestyle and Diet are.

I recommend :
  1. Watch the Charlie Rose Show Interview of Christine Gorman,Dr. Peter Libby and Dr. Valentine Fuster.
  • The show is 28 minutes long.
  • The Show date was 02/17/2004

In case the link is broken in the above Link Charlie Rose Show Interview :

The website to find the Archived show is:

Then in the search box enter: Christine Gorman / Check as a search for: Guest

The Tag Line on the Video will be : A discussion about chronic inflammation.

When I watched the show after Reading the Time Magazine article,I was elated that the spell of ;Feel Bad,take a Drug, is being dispelled.
I buried my father from the effects of Prostate cancer and several heart attacks.
My father was a classic case of an acidic lifestyle.Acid reflux,heart disease.high blood pressure,overweight and stress were his constant companions until his death at 55 years of age.From age 7 until when I was 19,when he died,I learned first hand about Drugs ,medicine,surgery and Lifestyle.
Later on in my life when I met people who lived a Healthy Lifestyle, I saw the proof of the connection between Healthy Lifestyle and being disease free.
In my opinion:
Testing your pH daily is one of the simplest and easy ways to determine how well you are doing in living a Optimal Healthy Life.

For literaly pennies a day you can have your pH test results in Hand (pun intended), within seconds, 30 seconds being the time for the pH paper to give an indication.
