In order to maintain optimal health, the pH level of the blood should range between 7.35 and 7.45. If your blood pH is reduced to less than 7.35, it falls into acidosis. Humans need to consume both alkaline and acidic foods to maintain a proper balance, with a higher concentration of alkaline foods if the body is acidic, a common condition due to typical diets consumed in the Western world. A diet rich in alkalizing foods and drinks is crucial to neutralize acidic imbalances and normalize body pH, which is key to avoid or eliminate diseases associated with acidosis.

Signs and symptoms of acidosis include:

  • chronic fatigue
  • headaches
  • muscle tension
  • joint pain
  • weight gain and obesity
  • excess mucous
  • chronic cough
  • indigestion, bloating, gas and acid reflux
  • poor immune system
  • acne, eczema and skin rashes
  • brain fog
  • yeast and fungal overgrowth
  • kidney and bladder infections
  • osteoporosis
  • arrhythmia
  • increased heart rate
  • chest pain
  • joint pain
  • neck and back pain
  • sensitive gums and cavities and bad breadth
