Symptoms of Excessive pH Acidity

What is excessive acidity?


Information drawn from various sources.

This is what Dr. Marc Cochran has to say about low pH and acidosis.


“An acidic body is a body full of chronic pain and illness. The more acidic you become, the more chronic and the more severe the illness will become.” “What does long term acidosis create? The American public is about 98% acidic because of the diet. Call it what you want. Now, I am going to give you some long term symptoms of acidosis.” “Long term symptoms of acidosis.” 1. “Acne, panic attacks, lack of sex drive, cold hands and feet, food allergies, agitation, bloating, mild headaches, rapid panting breath, hard to get up in the morning.That’s the beginning symptoms of acidosis. Now we’re gonna go in the middle.”2. “Cold sores, depression, migraine headaches, asthma, hives, swelling, urinary infections, colitis, excessive falling hair, stuttering, numbness, tingling, fungal infections. That’s intermediate.” 3. “The last one. Advanced symptoms: Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, leukemia, all cancers, Hodgkin’s disease, schizophrenia, tuberculosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis.” “That’s what you have to look forward to if you are not changing the acid in your body. Now, I also want you to understand that this information I just gave you is not from Dr. Marc Cochran. This is from research documentation. So, I’m not just saying it to say it. Everything that is in this handout is backed by medical research.”
