In this video, Dr. Berg talks about how stress and sugar can alter your pH. Every part of the body has a different pH. The reference point of too alkaline and too acid pH is the blood, it has a very narrow pH of 7.35 to 7.45, in which 7 is the neutral and higher than 7 is alkaline. The pH varies when you consume too much sugar versus experiencing too much stress.

• Refined sugar or refined carbs could cause the body to be more acidic.
• The body will develop a condition called Lactic Acid, the body is not breaking down certain sugar of byproducts building up in the blood.
• Diabetic Type I could create a condition called Diabetic Ketoacidosis that could cause hyperventilation and could lead to respiratory alkalosis.
