What's An "Acid pH"?
An acid pH, or "acidosis," is the term used to describe the imbalanced
acidic condition of all our body fluids. Virtually all cellular functions
of the body are sensitive to the pH of their fluids. If the pH deviates
too far to the acid side, cells become poisoned in their own toxic acidic
wastes and die.
Which Foods Are "Acid-Forming" And Which Ones Are
Most high protein foods (such as meat, fish, poultry and eggs), nearly all
carbohydrates (including grains, breads, pastas) and fats are
"acid-forming." And most fruits and vegetables are "base-forming."
Although citrus fruits, such as oranges and grapefruit, contain organic
acids and may have an acid taste, they are not acid forming when
metabolized, leaving no acidic residue. Similarly, Free-Form Amino Acids
are not acid-forming, but instead offer unique buffering capabilities to
How Do I Get Rid Of An "Acid-pH"?

and vegetables you eat while decreasing the amounts of acid-forming foods
consumed. But an easier way is to take
