What you eat and put in your mouth can have the greatest effect on your health!  There are acidic foods and then there are alkaline foods and its important to be a balance between the two, you can’t be too acidic and you can’t be too alkaline.  With today’s western diet the majority of us are too acidic and it is down to your diet.  When a food is too acidic it is the ash it leaves behind once it goes through the metabolic process, therefore lemons and tomatoes and NOT known as an acidic food because the ash it leaves is an alkaline one.  Chronic acidity removes oxygen from the blood, increases the rate of aging and lowers your immunity.

The other types of symptoms you can get from being too acidic are:
