The terms “Acid” and “Alkaline” have gotten pretty overused and confused over the last several years. The different tissues, organs, and systems of our bodies all work at different levels of pH – some very acidic, some very alkaline.

In general, the modern diet of processed foods makes for an overly acid inner environment . . . which is the right condition for gout to manifest.

Eating a diet of “alkaline-forming” foods helps to keep gout under control.
