Dear Dieter
I must admit that I have not considered using litmus paper to determine general health. Human saliva has an alkaline pH, while stomach acid has an acid pH, so I am not quite sure what you would like to determine. When I used to work in a laboratory many years ago we purchased litmus paper for our experiments from chemical suppliers. Otherwise ask your chemist if he has any idea where you can obtain litmus paper.
Best regards
