Once I found out that I had these basic acidic body symptoms, I have learned to be more careful about what I eat.
Here are the acidic body symptoms:
Also, too much acidity in your system will give you a dulled mentality with slower thinking ability, headaches and depression along with fatigue and muscle stiffness.
When you have too much acidity in your body, calcium and other alkalizing minerals are used to counteract the acidity.
To preserve the health of your body, and to keep your blood from being acidic, your body will take alkaline minerals from your nervous system and put them back into your blood stream.
This will make you more irritable as the calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium minerals are lost from muscle and nerve cells. Plus, you will have tension in neck and shoulders. Arthritis and osteoporosis are also typical problems.
You feel fatigue and weakness from toxemia that develops because the kidneys are working so hard to get rid of the excess acids, plus eliminate other types of toxins that build up from general every day living.
I am writing about this because I had all of these symptoms, which I only found out by doing research on symptoms of an acidic body.
Before I changed my diet, I took these herbal supplements and remedies to combat the acidity in my system. As the excess acid was eliminated from my body, the symptoms gradually disappeared and I started feeling more peppy and energized.
For excess acid I took:
Chicory - the root is used.
Chicory will cleanse the liver, kidneys, spleen, lymphatics, stomach and urinary pathways of their wastes. Liver bile is stimulated and heart disorders are helped by reducing nerve irritation. It also neutralizes uric acid, and gout, skin eruptions and joint stiffness is reduced. It clears stomach mucus which inhibits absorption and prevents stomach juice secretion for proper digestion function.
D.-W contains Gentian, Ginger, Juniper Berries and Safflower
This combination coats and heals stomach sores, helps digestion and stops bloating
For uric acid elimination, I took:
B.P.-W - which contains Peach Leaf, Stillingia, Red Clover, Bee Pollen, Buckthorn, Inkberry, Prickly Ash and Sanicle.
This combinations cleans and normalizes the blood stream. It cleans out everything such as cancerous cells, tumors, yeasts, and other types of fungus, germs and virus organisms, irritating acid crystals, urea and heavy metals. It also supplies nourishment for red and white blood cells as well as bone marrow. It also supplies organic iron.
KID.-W contains Juniper Berries, Uva Ursi, Parsley, Dandelion Root and Chamomile.
This combination fights infection, dissolves and cleans out microscopic crystal splinters and repairs kidney filters. For intensive use and quickest results in severe conditions, use KID-W externally.

You may be feeling that those are enough symptoms, but here are more acidic body symptoms. I want you to be aware that you need to monitor your acidic intake daily if you want to have better health. Plus, you will have a better understanding of why you may have certain symptoms.
If you have
Because of all of this irritation of the mucous linings, your food moves too quickly through your digestive system which does not allow the body to fully absorb and assimilate the necessary nutrients. Incomplete digestion of the food will coat the intestines causing impairment of assimilation of vitamins and minerals. All of this leads to
Many bacteria and yeasts can grow in an acidic body, and some researchers think that cancer growth is stimulated by an acidic system.
Paavo Airola Ph.D., N.D who died in 1983 believed that acidosis is one of the basic causes of all disease.
He was "an internationally recognized nutritionist, naturopathic physician, award-winning author, and renowned lecturer.
He studied nutrition, biochemistry and biological
medicine in Europe, then spent many years studying ancient, herbal, and
alternative healing methods during his world-wide travels. His clinical
experience was acquired while directing various biological medical clinics
in Europe and Mexico.
Overall, he recommends a diet that stresses fresh, raw, organically grown fruits, vegetables, and grains with no animal proteins, except for farm-fresh-fertilized eggs, and unpasteurized cows' or goats' milk.
Airola claims that meat causes cancer and that protein requirements can be met from plant sources if they are eaten raw. Enzymes, he says, make the protein in these foods complete. His recommendations also include a regimen of vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplements, fermented foods, and a collection of health and beauty "secrets" from countries all over the world.
