acidic body unhealthy
There is a lot of talk at the moment that one of the main causes of illness in one is if the body is too acidic. They say you should test your acidity with lithmus paper and should you acidity be high treat it. They say alkalise or die ! What are your thoughts on this ? And if your body is too acidic what would be a good natural remedy to take to get your system back to being more alkaline. I did try contact the dietdoc but was not given the Ask a question option.

Thank you

Hallo Karen
Your body has 3 systems to control the acidity of the blood - your lungs, your kidneys and your stomach - unless you eat very funny, leave the body to do what it was supposed to do - it really does not need your help unless you have serious lungdisease or kidneydisease!
