How To Tell If You Have An Acidic Body, And What To Eat To Alkalize It Fast
Acidic bodies are unhealthy bodies. When the body is acidic, it creates an unwanted environment where illness, bacteria, and yeast thrive.
When the body is overly acidic, the body takes minerals from vital organs and bones to neutralize the acid and remove it from the body. Because of this, the body’s mineral reserves such as calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium can run dangerously low and cause damage that can go undetected for years, until it reaches unhealthy levels, causing acidosis.
Most of us are already consuming enough acid-forming foods, such as dairy, grains, meats and sugar. Since the body is constantly generating acidic waste products from the metabolism, those waste products need to be neutralized or excreted in some way. In order to neutralize the constant acid generation, we need to supply the body with more alkaline foods.
Health problems caused by poor pH balance:
Sciatica, lumbago, stiff neck

Yeast fungal overgrowth
Low energy and chronic fatigue
Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and reduction in oxygen
Heart problems, arrhythmias, increased heart rate
Weight gain, obesity, and diabetes
