The acid-alkaline balance is a crucial consideration in health. Illness usually develops in an overly acidic body. There are many factors that can contribute to acidity.

Stress and anxiety create acid body fluids. The waste byproducts of many of the foods that are commonly eaten are acidic. Toxins usually are acidic. With all the public poisons in our lives, most of us are toxic.

You can easily test your urine with pH strips to determine the status of acid/alkaline balance.

Relaxing, detoxifying and choosing alkaline forming foods and minerals 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 toxins have an extra positively charged proton. Unstable protons are free radical ions seeking a mate. Excess protons need to be countered with available negative electrons. Antioxidants provide electrons that can stabilize free radical toxins.

Most of the chemicals added to public water are acidic and positively charged. 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 even more. It is important to re-mineralize RO water or distilled water to alkalize It. On the other hand, alkalizing should not be done to an extreme.
