ARE YOU TOO ACIDIC?HOW YOUR BODY’S PH IMBALANCE IS AFFECTING YOUR HEALTH

This might be oversimplifying the physiological underpinnings a bit, but the conclusion is spot on. Unbalanced eating and hydration habits exacerbate stomach and blood acidity to the point where the body spends far too many metabolic resources counterbalancing the ill effects, until it starts breaking down entirely. One must be very careful about consuming lots of alkaline foods and avoiding those foods either directly acidic or the cause of hyperacidosis. Drinking water before and 30 min+ after (NOT during) meals also helps.
