Did you know that your body could become too acidic? Well, it can and that is a very serious problem.
When it comes to our health, we need a balanced environment, not one that is too acidic and not one that is too alkaline. If your body becomes too acidic you will become deficient in some needed nutrients. This will strain your body big time.
You see, our current diets seem to almost force us to become too acidic and that is not a good thing. When we become too acidic within it becomes a condition known as acidosis. Acidosis, to begin with, might not seem like a problem but the worse it gets the worse you will feel. Below you will find a list of sighs that will help you figure out if you might be experiencing acidosis.
