Acidity Self-Test

Use this checklist to get a sense of how acidic you may be. Determining your acidity levels isn’t an exact science, but this Self-Test can help you get a better idea of how urgently you need to begin alkalizing your body.


1.         Make a mark next to any of the symptoms listed here, if you have them.

2.         Count the total number of symptoms in each category.

The idea is this: the more symptoms, the more acidic you may be, and the more urgent it is for you to begin an alkalizing program.
