I went the doctor and he said my acidity is high in my body. What can I use to reduce the acidity and keep it as normal as it should be?
This basically means that your cells are producing too much acid and there is not enough oxygen production (in the cells) for them to function normally.
This could be from:
Eating too many empty calories - like junk foods and processed foods. You need to eat more fresh ingredients like fruit and vegetables that contain natural amounts of water.
Drinking too many diuretics - like tea and coffee. There is not enough water coming into your system. Drink herbal teas and plain water throughout the day, your cells need it to make your body work correctly!
Taking stimulants - sugar, smoking, drinking and recreational drugs.
What you need to do:
Adopt an alkaline diet - lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and drink a lot of natural liquids especially water. Cut down on fats and only eat lean protein - fish and chicken.
