ORP and Conductivity Meter
Hi, can you send me some info re ORP and urinary conductivity meter. I misplaced my notes from Ted and I can not locate them here. Thank you
Hello again, let me rephrase my question here. I do own Extech ORP and conductivity meter I have idea what to use for but I need clarification reading ORP as per Ted should be in normal range salivary 180-220 milivolts(mv) and urinary 30-45 mv ok what to do if is more or less than average what that number may do to your body. Fr conductivity the number should be 4200-4900 microsiemens or 420-490 milisiemens, the same question what to do when those numbers are more or less thanks
Hi Enrique....Generally you should always take the conductivity reading of your urine. If you're reading is too low and you have low conductivity then this can mean one of two things:
1. You lack minerals in your diet and in your body -- your major electrolytes - calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium - are out of balance or too low.
2. The other reason can be too much water in your body(mineral dilution).
Both the above will cause low conductivity readings.
The first reason above -- lacking minerals -- is therefore much more likely. So you will have to determine, from your symptoms, which minerals you are lacking. A hair analysis will give you a good idea of the minerals you are lacking in your diet.
If your conductivity reading is to high then this either means that you are ingesting too high a concentration of minerals in your diet or it can also mean that you are lacking adequate amounts of water in your diet. So you must drink more water whenever you eat food.
More from Ted:
"If you were to do urinary conductivity, it will also reveal, if it is too conductive - which is a problem for me - means I do not drink enough water.
If the urinary conductivity on the other hand is below normal, which is quite common for people in the United States, it means mineral depletion or electrolyte depletion, which is common amongst athletes.
Usually the average urine conductivity is between 4200-4900 microsiements. My urinary conductivity recently went over the roof at 9500 microsiements which reveals that my kidney is could fail from unnecessary work since I don't drink that much water, especially during the evening hours.
There is a superstition that I will disprove based on my experiments with urinary conductivity. It is a commonly held belief that you should not drink water when you are eating food since you will dilute the digestive juices.
Based on my test, my urinary conductivity went over the roof (over 9000 microsiemens) if I did, which means that if you do not drink while eating food, you could destroy your kidneys since the urinary concentration electrolyte is far too great than nature intended and the kidney must work far too hard.
The reason is simple: most foods we eat are already too high in sodium as it is. Therefore the problems do not lie with digestive juices, the problems lies with you killing your kidneys! Also, my salivary pH went acid (less than pH of 5) if and when I try not to drink water while I was eating.
Based on these tests, it seems the most important lesson is to use urinary conductivity to measure the ideal amount of water you should drink. While your pH is used to determine whether your body is properly absorbing the required mineral or not from the foods we eat. It seems to me that pH seems to go off before I get sick. So these meters can really be a prevention as well."
There is generally no general agreement for ORP or conductivity. I have my own values I used. But cancer exists in low negative ORP of -10 to -40 millivolts. It is also true that healthy cells exist at least -80 to -120 millivolts. For the body to recover from sickness you need to get higher negative millivolts, negative 180 to 220 millivolts. Cellular regeneration generally occurs at -246 millivolts. As for conductivity meter it will generally go off scale because of heavy metal exposure usually lead and others. So getting a readings in the 4200 to 4900 microsiemen is quite good. But if less usually sea salt in drinking water will help. Pain also dissapears at least -200 millivolts. This is why baking soda and vitamin c and apple cider vinegar and baking soda works all of the have low voltages. There are lot of formulas but a good indicator of likelihood of cancer and prevention of cancer is the millivolts. This is why hydrazine and reducing agents work. Its been known for hundreds of years. Case in point, how do you stop wine from fermenting is the same as stopping cancer from fermenting? You use reducing agents sodium or potassium metabisulfite a known reducing agents!?

Ph, TDS and Orp meters: Hi everybody, I was wanting to get kitted out with some meters and found it rather confusing, not being much of a chemist yet, at the many brands and ranges of each meter. Does anybody have any advice as to a good multimeter designed for urine/saliva analysis, or is it better purchasing three specific meters for each test? Any advice would be more than welcome.
Do you have the model # cause there are lot and lot of different Hanna pocket pH meters?

"Simple pH Indicator Solution: A simple way to prepare a pH indicator, instead of using pH strips, is to use the spice, Turmeric. Turmeric is a yellow powder but in a basic solution it turns a ruby red color. Actually, it turns color right at a pH of 6.8. the pH that the urine and saliva should be, most of the time.
To prepare this pH indicator solution you just add a teaspoon of Turmeric to a pint of rubbing alcohol. Shake it up and let it settle.
To use it pour some of the yellow, alcohol/Turmeric solution into a test tube or similar container. A small drinking glass will do. Add a few drops of urine or saliva and if it turns red it means that whatever was added had a pH greater than 6.8, that it was alkaline. If it stays yellow the pH is acid, less than 6.8, need more fruits and vegetables. If your urine is acid you need Base Powder. You take enough Base Powder so that the Turmeric solution stays red most of the time. After awhile it will stay red all by itself and then you will know what it means to be in pH balance. You will simply just feel good.
Most tests like these need to be verified with a pH meter as the quality of turmeric varies as well as the pH values. Rubbing alcohol had additives and that is not stable on pH scales either. A 100% alcohol would give better readings, but not easy to find. However, you can monitor changes in your body's pH. But to conclude whether your body is alkaline or acid is a bit harder with this method. You have to decide yourself on this.
Hanna pH pocket meters are usually the standard in the U.S. Usually the costs is not over $100
HI DO YOU SELL PH/ORP METER THAT GIVE YOU THE RH2 READING OR IF YOU KNOW WHERE I CAN BUY ONE? THANKS
All you need is ORP and pH is sufficient to get RH2. The approximate formula I used to calculate RH2 is:
RH2 = ((ORP 200)/30) (2*PH))
You must note that I have my own optimum pH and basic pH value, and hence my RH2 values are different from other biological terrain people as the figures tend to be lower in general. You won't easily find meters with rH, ORP, and pH. If you do it would be too expensive.
For example, an acceptable ORP for me is about -100 millivolts, and pH is at least about 7. So if formulas were plugged in an ideal (Ted's value) is 17.33. However, other values used by other biological terrain are higher than mine. This is on the basis of people recovery from a sickness, if the value weren't close to that recovery from illness is not so quick, which is how I found this to actually be a minimum value to at least achieve a pH of 7, and an ORP of at least -100 millivolts.
However my ideal pH value is 7.35, but in practice, getting the basic pH 7.00 would be sufficient. Since the formulas to attain pH of 7 is a lot easier than a formula to achieve 7.35, which is a state where the urine pH is equal to the blood pH, causing the minimum stress to the kidneys where an equilbrium of pH exists between the kidneys and the blood.
In event of sickness, technically it is possible to get higher values of pH still, but whichever the case attaining a close value of pH of 7, are usually sufficient for most cases, which can mean a pH between 6.5 to 7.0 for me is an minimum acceptable range.
It's been mentioned about using electricity to zap ordinary water in order to energize it or add negative ions. I tried this with a 9 volt battery but it didn't help very much. Ted mentioned he uses a 50,000 volt zapper on his water. What type of product would this be so I can get one myself? Please email me, if you have any suggestion. Thank you very much!

Potassium Bicarbonate, Asorbic Acid
I bought Potassium Bicarbonate for $6.95 a lb. and Ascorbic Acid for $2.25 an oz. plus shipping from Midwest Brewing and Winemaking Supplies. web site is: www,midwestsupplies.com
Potassium Bicarbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate
With regards to where I get my supplies, we do not seem to have many choices. I tried to get some of the basic chemicals such as potassium bicarbonate or chloride from local chemical suppliers, but first of all most of them only carry industrial grade, not food grade, chemicals, and secondly, they are set up to only deal with businesses and do not wish to deal with individuals.
That narrows our options to only the health food outlets and manufacturers. Hence, I shop for all these chemicals such as magnesium salts (malate, ascorbate, citrate, aspartate, etc.) as well as most other supplements online at iHerb.com which carries a very large selection of products from many manufacturers such as NOW Foods, which happens to be one of my favorites because of their quality and reasonable prices and their no-gimmick and no-nonsense approach, something very rare with most other companies. In fact, I am going to try their fulvic acid product now that it seems to be within Ted's specs.
I have not gone after the food-grade hydrogen peroxide yet, and I would not use the regular 3% solution available at Wal-Mart or 99Cent stores because it contains traces of tin, phosphates, and nitrates-- I actually contacted Aaron Industries which makes these products and they told me that the concentrated solution they purchase from another manufacturer contains these stabilizers although they themselves do not add anything more to it other than purified water for dilution.
For sodium bicarbonate, I use the regular Arm & Hammer baking soda that you can find in any grocery store. I contacted them also, and they told me that they do not add anything to their baking soda although they do not have any chemical analysis of the soda ash (a mined mineral deposit) from which they make their baking soda by adding carbon dioxide in a solution--i.e., no additives or stabilizers. I hope that this information answers your question. Please let me know if you need more information. Have a great week and keep up the good work. Also thanks for all the help.
Potassium Bicarbonate, Tannic Acid
Hello everyone! I have to share that! Yesterday I tried to order from pure bulk and when I looked a the total I had to stop and re-think my list for obvious budgetary reason. So today I searched the web and got the idea to look at wine making and I did find not only tannic acid but also potassium bicarbonate at a very reasonable price $7 vs $29. It is unfortunate that they don't have more of what I need, but every bit help.
