A body with balanced pH makes harder for diseases to take root. Most people with an imbalance tend to have an acidic pH. In fact, it is an imbalance of acidity and alkalinity that allows unhealthy organisms to flourish, damages healthy tissues and organs, and lowers your immunity.
The effects of a poor pH level can lead to allergies, asthma, congestion, fatigue, frequent colds, headaches, inflammation, joint and muscle pain, skin problems, ulcers and weight gain. An imbalanced pH level can occur due to alcohol and drug use, overuse of antibiotics, an unhealthy diet, chronic stress, lack of exercise, residing in heavily polluted areas, shallow breathing and exposure to chemicals and radiation from household products.
You can easily balance your pH level and correct the overly acidic environment in your body by using simple home remedies and lifestyle changes.
