Acid aggression on the tissues and the plundering of the body's reserves of alkaline minerals cause characteristic problems. One of the means used for determining whether a person's internal environment is acidified involves analyzing whether any problems he or she is suffering from currently, as well as those that were present in the past, are characteristic of those that accompany acidification.
The list below starts with the description of general symptoms and continues with ailments classified according to the parts of the body they affect.
If you are suffering from only one or two of the problems cited, your internal environment most likely is not acidified; or, if it is, the other characteristic problems have yet to manifest. To learn more you need to perform a test of urinary pH.
Of course, if you are afflicted with acidification you will not suffer from all the problems on the list. When reading the descriptions of these different problems, you may recognize some as conditions you had in the past and others as those you are currently dealing with. You may also recognize some as conditions to which you are susceptible even though you are not currently suffering from their full-blown versions. For example, you might have a tendency toward dry skin or joint pains without actually having eczema or rheumatism.
