Acidosis is an abnormality that reflects an acid pH in the tissues.
The naturopathic theory behind a proper dietary acid/alkaline
balance is that because our body's blood pH is slightly alkaline, with a normal range of 7.36-7.44, our diet should reflect this preference and tend more towards alkaline foods. An imbalanced, acidic diet high in animal protein, sugar, caffeine
and processed foods tends to disrupt this pH balance. This deprives the body of alkaline minerals such as sodium
and leaves us prone to chronic and degenerative diseases.
