VIDEO: How Does pH Balance Affect Our Health?

The term pH stands for "potential of hydrogen." This is a fancy medical way of measuring how acidic something is. Why is it important to human health? Our bodies are designed for a certain pH level, and wavering one way or the other causes issues throughout. For example, high acidity pulls minerals like calcium out of the bones. That's why things like soda can lead to bone loss. These things affect our pH balance. In this five minute video, we discuss some of the issues caused by high acidity, what causes this condition, and what you can do to help yourself out. You can get your pH balance tested at the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine. You might be surprised at the results!
