Wake up a few times a night to urinate (clueless as to why, your insight would be great),
Feel the need to take deep breaths- unusual for me. Worse at night for some reason
Z Pack, multivitamins, herbs
was going to the gym, body shape was starting to change a little with exercise
Decreasing acidic food intake to neutralize pH (was 7.0, now 7.25) Aiming for 7.4
Discontinued coffee and chocolate, sugary foods
changing body pH (blood, urine, saliva). Saliva was tested.
I weigh 153 lbs, have for at least 3 years (I am a size 10). Diet; pretty healthy, some baked items (live in Germany), more than I would eat in the States, but not too much more. Balanced; chicken breast, vegetable, rice. (example of typical dinner)
I avoid alcohol because (since it makes us pee more!), drink H2O (2 to 2 1/2 liters a day)
The MD said that my lungs still sounded ok, congestion was in the bronchial tubes...was having slightly labored breathing for about 1 week, been 5 days on the antibiotics. Not sure there is much improvement...slight.
Last time my BP was taken (5 days ago) it was 106/62 (or somthing like it)
The frequent urination is only at night. This started this past summer. The only thing that seemed to have affected this was when I started changing my diet this summer, drinking 5-16 oz. glasses of water and avoiding acidizing foods. That is when my pH changed from 7.0 to 7.25. I got to the point where I was not having to get up at night at all to urinate.
