pH Assessment

Can you answer “Yes” to any of these questions?


  • Do you need help and guidance in designing a specific nutritional program that meets your special needs?
  • Are you wondering if chronic stress, poor diet and exposure to toxins and chemicals in the environment may be having an effect upon your body?
  • Do you suffer from a lack of vitality?

Perhaps it’s time to explore the amazing world of Biological Terrain and have a complete pH assessment (BTA) of your internal pool.

Testing the pH of your saliva and urine only with pH test strips is not a proper way to find out your pH and is actually quite misleading.


Dr. Robert O. Young concluded that the over-acidification of the body is the single underlying cause of all diseases. The pH level (acidic-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our body.



Your Biological Terrain is the interstitial fluid that nourishes the 100 trillion cells in your body. In addition to delivering electrolytes, minerals, enzymes, vitamins, hormones and water to the cells, the Biological Terrain also transports the substances and waste products that the cells release. These substances enter the blood, urine, lymphatic fluid and saliva for proper utilization and disposal by the body.


Specific values of the urine and saliva provide valuable information about the biochemical building blocks of your body – your enzymes, amino acids, and minerals. This information may help identify underlying factors or stresses that may be contributing to low energy and lack of vitality and well-being.




A BTA™ or Biological Terrain Assessment™ involves the monitoring of your saliva and urine for pH, redox and resistivity. These parameters may provide valuable information about your body’s cells and the interstitial environment called the Biological Terrain that nourishes those cells.


QFA_deviceFollowing a 12-hour fast, (scroll down for the 12 hour fast guidelines) first morning urine and saliva specimens are obtained. The QFA-300™ device then assesses these fluids.


Results are obtained in about 30 minutes, consisting of an 8-10 page print-out of extremely valuable information, explanations and even recommendations. This data may increase your understanding of your specific biochemical requirements and point out specifically which one of your body organs or systems is affected by your pH balance. It will also give you your real biological age. This valuable information may help you to choose a proper nutritional and/or detoxification program that best suits your particular needs to support healthy cellular function. This test can be done alone or in conjunction with our other tests.

BTA Test Results


Your BTA analysis measures the values of pH, redox and resistivity. These measurements may offer valuable information about the electrons, minerals, hydration and nutrients in your Biological Terrain environment. Because your biochemistry is unique, these values may help your clinician design the nutritional program that is best suited for your particular needs. A BTA test does not diagnose an illness or disease. It monitors specific parameters of your Biological Terrain.


sad-env-cellsYour pH measurement will indicate the acidity or alkalinity of your biological fluids. Specific pH levels are necessary for optimum digestion and absorption of foods, activation of enzymes and binding of hormones with their receptor sites.


Your redox measurement may provide data regarding the level of electrons in your fluids. Electrons are essential for life. Long-term exposure to such factors as chronic stress, poor diets, environmental toxins, chemicals and damaging organisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi may interfere with the cells’ abilities to produce the substances needed for electron and ATP production.


Your resistivity results involve the measurement of minerals in your fluids. Minerals are needed for many critical actions and reactions in the body, as well as for building and maintaining bone and muscle tissue. When fluids become congested with too many minerals, stagnation and congestion may occur which may limit the cells’ abilities to function optimally. Too few minerals in the fluids may limit the body’s ability to maintain its bone and muscle function.




Fast for 12-14 hours prior to your test. Complete your dinner the evening prior to the test no later than 5:00-6:00 PM. Avoid scheduling your BTA test within 24 hours of airplane travel.


After dinner, brush you teeth and refrain from eating or drinking anything until after your test. This includes chewing gum, throat lozenges and candy. Take any prescribed medications as directed with only a small about of water.


Refrain from using any toothpaste, mouthwashes or mouth rinses both at bedtime and the morning of your test. Also avoid the use of any lipstick or makeup around your mouth and lips. Such substances can change the chemistry of the mouth and your saliva.


If you wear dentures or orthodontic appliances, refrain from wearing these during the 12-hour fasting period until after your saliva specimen has been obtained. Denture adhesives, plastics and metals can change the chemistry of the saliva.


Refrain from sexual activity during your fasting period. This can cause false elevated readings in your urine values.


On the morning of your test, obtain a sample of your first-morning urine. Try to obtain a mid-stream specimen (urinate a small amount first, then obtain the remaining urine in your specimen cup). If you did not receive your specimen container, thoroughly wash a glass jar and lid with hot water. Avoid the use of harsh soap or bleach as these can create residues that can alter your urine results. Urine can be collected at 4:00 AM or later.


When you arrive for your test, bring your urine container. A small, saliva specimen cup will be provided. Expectorate approximately 2 teaspoons of saliva into the cup. Be certain not to bring up post-nasal drip.


Feel free to bring your toothbrush, toothpaste, dentures, makeup and a piece of fruit or snack for after your test.
