Consequences of Extended Acidosis

Extended acidosis can be destructive to your body and increases the risk for a number of unfavorable health conditions, including:

  • Weak bones (osteoporosis).
  • Mood swings
  • Chronic exhaustion
  • Indigestion
  • Urinary tract abnormalities, such as kidney stones
  • Weight gain, obesity and diabetes
  • Impaired metabolism and failure to lose weight
  • Chronic inflammation
  • High blood pressure
  • Weakened immunity
  • Yeast/fungal overgrowth

So how do we FIX this? Good question. Well, the answer is rather simple – FIX your own lifestyle and practice better food choice!

The rule of thumb is to consume a diet that contains 60% alkaline food and 40% acidic food on a daily basis. Let’s say your body is currently at an alarming acidic state – It’s wise to actually consume more than 60% alkaline food to neutralize your internal pH.

Examples of alkaline food are most fruits and green vegetable; whereas acid-forming food comprises of meat, fish, soymilk, most grains, coffee, nuts, pasta and energy drink.
