Thank you for your insight and the links.
Neither of us suffers from Hypertension even though my other half has atrial fibrillation.
We do have a good quality BP machine and check our BP on a regular basis because of the AF. The machine registers almost the same as at the GP surgery.
Who is to say what is a "correct" level.
If the body was capable of monitoring and maintaining levels why do some people suffer from acidosis or alkalosis.
As far as the litmus paper is concerned I already had it and I use it for other tests so I'll hang onto it.
Wouldn't use bicarb to bake with since baking powder does a better job for most things
PS. I was asking if anyone had thoughts on the Bicarb approach. I didn't actually say we were treating ourselves, merely that out of curiosity we had checked our general ph level.
