Studies say ph levels between 7 and 8 start healing the body. Got to get the body to alkaline. Remember a lot of doctors are just here to maintain and not heal you. They are making a lot of money off of you. You still need to do what they say but you also have to take responsibility for yourself if you want to live a decent life.
For me it might be to late because my doctor didn't tell me hey start eating a lot of fruits and vegetables and stop dairy and meat that causes inflammation. I never use to touch fruit and sometimes veggies. I still do a little fish with no oil for omega.
My diet was very acidic with a lot of protein and no balance. Yes I was fit a boxer, teakwondo and baseball player. Check out your diet it might just save you in a lot of cases. Keep your head up and keep fighting. Do your research. By the way my Lupus is gone, just fighting with kidney failure from the damage that it did. You diet can make a big difference.
