Zoe - it's all about proper balance. I went full tilt with a suggested alkalizing protocol and got quite sick. I had to go for an endoscopy and colonoscopy which both revealed inflamation of the stomach and intestines. I also had minor bleeding of the stomach. I never had these problems prior to going overboad with the protocol I followed.
I am feeling much better now :o) There is great information on CZ to be sure, but you must research for yourself. Research your specific issues with a focus on natural methods to healing. Don't go overboard and be patient. It's amazing how much diet and simple herbs can do for you. Again, common sense and balance.
This forum is the alkaline/acid forum. Your body NEEDS both.
