Reducing Acidity in Your Diet

Reducing acidity in your diet is important to maintain your health. Make sure to watch the alkaline and acidity balance of your diet. In the video below, Teshia explains how you should eat greens, beans, and grains to balance the coffee and animal protein that you consume.

She notes that  acidity and disease have been correlated.  You don’t have to only eat greens, but use them to balance the acidity you gain from pollution, coffee, or animal protein.
