How to Effectively Conduct a pH Litmus Test
Your Personal Health Compass
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
Congratulations for taking the first vital step on your journey toward achieving ultimate
health. It’s important to understand that while pH litmus testing is a very powerful tool
in effectively managing internal biochemistry, it is a tool and only has power if it is
prudently, effectively and frequently utilized. Perhaps the most important piece of the
achieving ultimate health formula is making the commitment to achieving ultimate health
then taking the appropriate action required to achieve the goal.
HELP! UHRI has produced optimal health step by step programs designed to guide you through all the
challenges of personal excellence and optimal health acquisition. Take the
challenge and become the best that you can be, then teach others to do the same.
pH litmus test
The pH litmus is perhaps the most powerful tool in the battle for optimal health. I call the pH test
"the health compass". It tells you when a coarse change is necessary. Like navigating a boat,
the destination is frequently not visible making the compass vitally important
to make constant coarse corrections to
keep the ship heading toward the destination. Litmus testing operate the same way. Because
optimal health is not clearly defined, perfect pH is (7.365) and serves as a
destination point. Frequent pH tests are conducted to see if health is on
course. This is done by measuring
either saliva or urine pH. When the pH deviates toward acid, corrective action is required to
restore pH back into a healthy slightly alkaline range.
Saliva pH tests must be done at least a half hour before consumption or the result may be
inaccurate. The best time to conduct saliva test is first thing in the morning before
brushing teeth. Properly conducted saliva pH test are generally considered to be twice as
valuable as urine pH tests.
Urine pH tests can be conducted any time. As such they will constitute the majority of
the frequent pH test that is necessary to develop a personal pH profile.
Logging/recording test results
It’s important to record all litmus tests in a personal log book. Test result as well as an
ongoing record will not only be used to determine what modulating strategies work but to
analyze the state of your personal biochemical state and the direction of health progress.
Conducting a pH litmus test
Test results and recordings must be honest and accurate. After all cheating or inaccurate
recordings only heart you and your ability to make the most rapid health progress possible.
1. Pull out and tare off a 1-1.5” strip of pH litmus test paper.
2. Immerse one end of the litmus test paper into saliva or urine.
3. Wait for 1-2 minutes to let the litmus paper yield it pH results.
4. Match the pH litmus paper to the color code on the pH litmus test box.
5. Write the test result in a personal pH log book.
6. Analyze test results and trend to navigate health much like a captain uses a compass to
stir a boat.
Litmus tests should be conducted and recorded after all consumption and activity to develop
an intimate feel of what encourages acid production and what encourages alkaline production.
Mastering the ability to control the ebb and flow of the internal biochemical pH swings is
the key to effectively managing health as well as mediating and eliminating illness and
disease. Learning how your personal internal biochemistry responds to all different stimuli
is essential to achieving ultimate health. The best results are realized when all consumption
and activity are recorded, evaluated and analyzed. For this reason, I encourage students to
record every litmus test, everything consumed and all other life activities to develop a better
understanding of what modulates internal biochemistry toward health and away from health. Of
course the trick is to develop consistent predominantly healthy.
A personal health log is available for download at
http://www.uhealthri.com. You may use it or create your own, but you
need to test frequently (as much as possible – especially when first beginning to learn your
unique internal biochemistry idiosyncrasies) and record the results. For questions and other

"Illness and disease are
optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen
It’s important to understand that optimal health can only
be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements
are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).
The following are the cornerstones of success with anything
in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you
will achieve excellence in anything you do.
character requires personal
commitment advances positive
tenacity promotes success

OPTIMAL HEALTH ACTION STEPS
1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence
Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity,
denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary
wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death.
DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR
HEALTH, WHO WILL?
The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of
either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely
true when it comes to health.
Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment)
are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments.
Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles
solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge
commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define
the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to
accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)
Perhaps the hardest part of achieving optimal health is changing
unhealthy behavior habits to
