Urine Analysis pH Testing is to Measure the Acid/Alkaline Balance of Urine
Why is urinary pH important?
Subtle changes to the pH of the body can have substantial impacts on a range of health conditions. These include stress, bone density, pain, muscle mass and hormonal balance.
Urinary pH is a good measure of the ‘acid-load’ within the body. Many Practitioners use urinary pH to tailor their treatment plans. Urinary pH ranges from 4.5 to 8.0 in extreme cases, and from 5.5 to 6.5 in the average patient.
Potassium citrate at a dose of 4 g daily has been shown to reduce acidity

Heavy Metals Test
Many people do not think of heavy metals when they are finding answers to their health concerns. Patients who were found to have toxic chemicals in their systems, were not aware of this until testing. They also usually don’t know when and/or where they were exposed to it.
Heavy metals that are toxic to our bodies. Substances such as Aluminium, Arsenic, Cadmium, Copper, Lead, Mercury and Nickel can have an antagonistic effect on essential vitamins and minerals found in our foods. They can have a huge negative impact on our health. For example, aluminium is commonly found in antiperspirants. This can reduce zinc, vitamin C, magnesium and calcium levels in the body, thus causing mineral loss from our bones as well as skin problems and gastrointestinal dysfunction.
Heavy metals and some toxic substances that have not been used for years can still take a very long time to break down. They may be present in your local or work environments. Often, clients are amazed at what shows up so they are relieved to be able to get help in testing for and clearing these substances.
