Illness usually develops in an overly acidic body. There are many factors that can contribute to acidity. Most toxins are acidic. Stress and anxiety create acid body fluids. The byproducts of many of the foods that are commonly eaten are acidic. 

Relaxing and choosing alkaline forming foods will help improve the body’s pH. Most vegetables and fruits are alkaline as an end result of metabolism. On the other hand, meats, dairy products, wheat and most other grains are acid forming.

Most of the pollutants in and chemicals added to public water are acidic. If one uses reverse osmosis to purify the water, it removes the chemicals, but this process removes minerals also, lowering the pH of the water. It is important to re-mineralize RO water or distilled water to make it more alkaline. Consuming water alkalized with minerals will gradually raise pH, but this should not be done to an extreme.
