A very thin line between good health and illness is known as acid alkaline balance in the body. If the pH is varying from 7.0 to 7.4, then a human body can feel good but it arises up and an imbalance in the body may occur.
Acidosis is a medical condition that generally occurs when our body becomes overly acidic. In this, the pH value of saliva reduced to 6.0. A litmus paper is used for testing it. As you wake up in the morning, check your saliva on an empty stomach. By dipping a pH strip in the saliva, observe its colour after a minute. If it ranges from 7.0 to 7.3, then you are healthy and if it ranges from 4.5 to 6.0, then it says you are acidosis. There are a few symptoms that show you have acidosis like body ache, headaches, strong acid perspiration, foul-smelling stools, hard stools, alternating with diarrhoea, sunken eyes, water retention, insomnia.
