The pH of our body is so important to our overall health. Diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancer all occur in acidic conditions. The more we can bring our body into an alkaline state, the better it will be for our overall health.
On a scale of 0 to 14, 0 is completely acidic and 14 is completely basic, or alkaline. 7 is neutral.
We aim for a value of a blood pH of 7.35-7.45, which is slightly alkaline.

Common issues we see with having an acidic body are:
