High Acid Levels
I have very high acid levels to the extent that my eyes burn after I have eaten an orange or any food containing high acid. I get a painful rash under my breasts. My joints pain. What can I do to eliminate the acid in my body?

Dear Dulci Vita
Your kidneys and lungs automatically get rid of acid in your blood through the urine and air that you breathe out. You may however have high uric acid that needs treatment. Ask your doctor to check with a blood test as there is medication you can take to prevent buildup of uric acid in the body.
