Your body is a sacred cradle that allows you to live out your dreams, contribute to this world with your infinite gifts and skills that you learn along the way. One of the things that allows you to live a healthy life of homeostasis is your body’s optimal pH or acid/alkaline level.
Besides, one of the ways to get ahead of the bodily internal inflammation is strive to lower acidity effects from foods and ways of living. When we keep acidity low, we control internal inflammation of the body as well.
Some body parts like skin and stomach need to be a bit acidic to function properly, while your blood and saliva call for a more alkaline environment to perform their functions.
The Effects of Too Much Acid in the Body
When this unique balance of acid and alkalinity is disturbed, the physical body reacts with a variety of signs of such disturbance.
Just take a look at the acidity effects in the body when the homeostasis is disturbed. When the body becomes too acidic, one or more of these signs occur:
– Burning bladder
– Stiff, sore joints and muscles
– Kidney stones
– Gall stones
– Bad breath
– Body odor
– Dry skin
– Weak nails
– Weak Immune system
– Bad mood and irritability
– Smelly sweaty feet
– Low energy
Cause of Acidity
When the body is denied the alkaline minerals to maintain the balance between acid and alkalinity, anybody of us can experience one or more effects of excess acidity in the body. The minerals – Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium – are the key holders to a happy acid/alkaline balance in the body.
As our daily diet is rich in processed foods, sugar, white flour, and is accompanied by high stress – our bodies are flooded with acid forming chemicals. If high acidity is maintained for prolonged period of time, the body can suffer severe damage.
How to Reduce Acidity in Body
Take a Physical Exam before you employ any tactics or remedies. You need to know that your body has pH imbalance.
Eat a Plant-Based Diet. Vegetables are low in sugar and fats, and help to reduce stomach acidity.
Alkalize your body with quality supplements.
Effects of Acidity in Stomach
Many do know what acid reflux is. Constant burps and burning sensation in the stomach and esophagus can be painful. Diet plays a huge role in maintaining a normal acidity of the stomach.
When we eat junk foods and highly processed foods, we automatically increase the stomach acid. Living under a high stress without controlling it also adds additional acid into our stomachs, thus overall body.
Acid can build up in the stomach overtime. And we consume foods which add additional acid, then the body becomes overwhelmed.
Foods and lifestyle choices that add additional acid to the stomach
Citrus fruits: Oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit, and pineapple can cause acid build-up. Apples, grapes, bananas, melon, and pear are much better options.
Vegetables: Most vegetables fit into a low acid diet, but fried, canned, or creamed veggies should be avoided. Some people find that onions and tomato-based products bother them.
Dairy products: Whole milk, high-fat creams, chocolate milk, and strongly flavored cheeses should be avoided. Low-fat and fat-free products are much safer.
Grains: Any grains that are made with whole milk or cream.
Meats: High-fat meats, cold cuts, chicken wings, sausage, bacon, poultry skin, and fried or greasy meats. Skinless chicken and lean beef are better choices.
Beverages: Alcohol, coffee, mint tea, hot cocoa, and other caffeinated beverages
Spicy foods: Hot peppers, curry, garlic, and salsa are some examples.
Fiber: Too much fiber can cause acid production to go into overdrive since it takes a long time for the food to pass through the stomach.
Ulcers or cancers: Either of these can lead to an increase in the production of the hormone gastrin, which increases acid production.
Stress: Research shows people who are severely stressed produce more acid in their stomachs.
Infection: Bacterial infection by the bacterium H. pylori can also increase acid production.
Irregular meals: Not having meals at a regular time or having long gaps between meals can result in acid accumulation.
Lack of sleep: This can also increase acid production in some individuals
How to get rid of excessive stomach acid & lower acidity effects overall
Apple Cider Vinegar: Offering healthy digestive enzymes helps with heartburn. Consuming apple cider vinegar before or after meal will be beneficial to the body and will reduce burning effects of acid.
Herbal Teas: Caffeine Free herbal teas can sooth the stomach. Chamomile, licorice, slippery elm, and marshmallow are excellent for acid reflux. Avoid peppermint or spearmint teas, though.
Eat Green: Choosing fresh vegetables on the daily basis will help to avoid the burning sensation in the stomach, as vegetables are naturally alkaline. Basil has soothing agents in it and can be effective to lower acidity in the stomach.
Chew Slowly: When we focus on the food we chew, we coat food with saliva, thus partially digesting it before it gets into the stomach.
Use Multiforce® alkalizing multi-mineral dietary supplement to lower harmful everyday acidity.

Effects of Acidity on Skin
Normal adult skin is somewhat acidic, ranging between 4 to 6 in pH. Our diet and skin products affect our skin health.
Our protective barrier made of sebum, skin oil, and perspiration form a protective barrier from the outside intruders and all kinds of pathogens. As our skin is a bit on the acidic side, using highly alkaline products, especially soap and cleansing substances on a high alkaline scale could be damaging to the skin. The skin is being stripped off the protective coating and becomes exposed to bacteria, allergens, fungi that can irritate and infect our precious organ.
To make a better decision what products to use on our skin, we need information of the pH for each skin care product. Voila, it is not a norm that this piece of data is printed on the label! That is why we need to test the product first to see how it effects our skin.
Things to Improve Skin Texture
Test any skin product before starting your new routine.
Dry Skin would benefit from a more acidic skin care product that will reduce dryness and sensitivities. However, when you consume a lot of whole foods like vegetables and fruit, your overall body acid/alkaline levels would improve and produce a positive effect on your skin.
Lower acidity effects of your body by taking a small step. Every day.

I have read quite a few articles on this. Thanks for posting.
I’ve had issues with my joints swelling and being extremely painful, out of the blue, over the past year or so – it’s gotten worse the past few months. I question gout as my mom has it, though – the docs say arthritis. Now that it’s worse with me awaking to not being able to walk on my foot most recently – they’re listening more to my complaints and getting more blood tests and xrays. All I know is that someone – something needs to fix me and if it takes me to find that something that will help – I’ll do it.
Yes, you will. Let’s move on and forward and learn from different sources.
I find it that when I read up a ton of information from many sources, listen what the doc has to say, and then synthesize it all – my mind comes up with a highly customized solution to my own body and what it needs.
I love your determination. Have faith in it. Hugs.
This is a great article. I need to really start consuming a “apple cider shot” like I use to to reduce my stomach acid. I also need to chew more slowly. Great tips!
Aside from carbs, spicy foods and dairy are my biggest problems! Need to try to incorporate more of the good foods/drinks to counteract the bad!
I think this acid problem bothers me a whole lot so I’m gonna start to invest in this. If it’s cheap and helps me feel better and get along better with people seems like that could be useful to me.
Very informative. I had no idea that acid could affect your body in so man ways.
I will have to check this out. It may help my situation.
