If your body finds itself in an acidic state more often than a neutral one, it places you at a greater risk of contracting disease or chronic illness, experiencing weight gain, exhibiting teeth and gum problems, experiencing pain and inflammation and showing signs of premature aging. A condition of high acidity may go undetected for years, causing the body to suffer prolonged damage.
The typical modern diet unfortunately contains a high level of acidifying foods- animal proteins, wheat, gluten, dairy and refined and processed sugars. Alkaline foods such as fruits and vegetables are often eaten in much smaller quantities and are not ingested in a high enough dosage to neutralize the excess of acidifying foods often consumed. Common substances such as tobacco, coffee, tea and alcohol are also extremely acidifying in the body.
To help our bodies maintain a balanced pH level it is important to eat and enjoy more alkaline-forming foods and fewer acid-forming foods.
