“Ideally, the pH of our blood should be around 7.35 – 7.45 or slightly alkaline. This balance is so delicate – believe it or not – when the pH drops below 7.0, you could slip into a coma and die. If your pH is too high, you could experience a life-threatening seizure. Along with a poor diet, previously mentioned, emotional stress and toxicity issues (i.e. heavy metal poisoning) can cause pH imbalances which decrease cellular energy and increase the risk of disease.
Too much acidity causes weight gain, diabetes, free radical damage, premature aging, poor brain function, heart damage and a lack of oxygen to every cell in our body.”
