An Acidic Body is a Sickness Magnet
Typically your body’s normal pH (acid level) should be around 7 pH, which is considered neutral. Various foods can create an influx in your pH causing you to become sick.
Many doctors will perform a blood analyses to determine pH levels when beginning to look for serious health concerns like cancer and other diseases. While a blood analyses is more accurate, you can test your own pH with a urine test strip available at most pharmacies.
If you measure 7 to 14 pH you are alkaline. If you measure 1 to 7 pH you are acidic. Avoid acidic foods and consider eating more alkaline foods depending on your pH level. Calcium supplements are an excellent way to raise your pH too.
