What about the dude in this link going to 8.0+
I realize what your saying is generally, always true......However, these stories; and this is not the only one, surly makes a chap or chapette scratch
their head in wonder.
I can't see where he says his blood or tissue pH was above 8.0 so I can only guess it was probably his urine.
If so, pH measured from this have no bearing on the body's pH levels at all.
After all, urine is waste material. It's what the body flushes out as it cannot use it.
If his body pH was above 8.0 he would be dead, end of. In fact he's be dead before it went that high.
The highest I've ever seen was on an intensive-care unit post op and the patient's pH was 7.85. I don't believe that patient recovered as there was
too much damage done on a cellular level.
Eating foods cannot alter your body's pH, it's impossible.
From a physiological viewpoint you can consider your alimentary canal to be effectively "outside" of your body. It's main purpose is to prepare food
and drink to be swallowed then broken down into compounds which are then absorbed through to the bloodstream to be used and processed. The alimentary
canal also acts as a screen to separate what we can or can't use.
Anything acidic or alkaline gets neutralised as best as possible mainly in the stomach and what's left gets expelled. Your body likes a neutral pH. It
needs a neutral pH to function.
Your urine can reflect the pH of what you've ingested, in fact your urine pH varies quite markedly over the course of a day. But like I said this is
what your body is expelling because it can't use it.
