Overweight man with gut pains
Results of eating too many foods that are acid-forming:
1. Acid-forming foods deplete the minerals in our body. Our blood and cellular fluid will become too acidic. To control this, the body will steal minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium from the bones, cartilage tissue, and muscles to create the balance. This is the beginning of osteoporosis and arthritis.
- Joints dry out, becoming stiff and less flexible.
- There is pain in the lower back and muscle stiffness.
2. The risk of heart attack and stroke increases due to the build-up of plaque and weakened blood vessels.
3. Dry and wrinkled skin occurs more rapidly.
4. Blood sugar fluctuations and diabetes are more likely.
5. Digestive problems increase.
6. Constipation increases, due to lack of digestion.
7. Weight gain occurs, with a difficulty in losing weight.
8. Weakened immune system.
9. Weakened glands and organs.
10. Headaches and depression.

“Immune cells that are too acid or too alkaline do not produce antibodies or cytokines (chemical messengers to regulate other immune cells), and they have impaired phagocytosis (the ability to engulf and destroy microbes). As a result, the affected individual becomes susceptible to viral, bacterial, fungal and other infectious microbes as well as cancer,” says Dr. William Lee Cowden.
