I think this is the key point really. An acidic blood pH is a sign of bad health, but that doesn’t mean you should be trying to “alkalise” yourself like the faddy pH diets suggest. Restoring your health will naturally restore balance to your body, including your blood pH. If you listened to the diets, you’d avoid some of the most beneficial foods for you like kefir and sauerkraut. It’s really not as simple as acid in = acid out.
