Thanks. I wouldn't know how to dig into the archives. I don't know if the research is good and ignored, or outdated. Don't have the skills to determine that.
Would you please help me by going down to a more mundane, practical, level? I see what you are saying to a certain extent.
I have also seen sites saying the research does not support that there is any bone or calcium or kidney problems with too much acidity. But...at the same time they do seem to be saying that years and years of acidity can be detrimental.
As I said above, I am eating as many fresh fruits and veggies as I realistically can.
I have to have some proteins & carbs to be healthy and not feel hungry. At 1 & 2 grams of C that, and maybe some lemon juice and Watermelon let me be mostly alkaline. Now, even with an entire lemon, a half grapefruit & a half cup of apple cider vinegar mixed with the lemon juice (I assume you believe ACV and lemon juice cause the body to be alkaline though they are acidic outside it) sipped on in water throughout the day, I am still very acidic.
What would you do? What would you take. I can't take baking soda because of all the salt. I need to restrict my salt to less than a teaspoon a day to keep my blood pressure normal. The baking soda gives me a funky feeling in one kidney and it is associated with kidney problems.
What would you do, in practical terms? Maybe this is an impossible, unfair Q. Maybe there is nothing I can do.
Do you think it is okay to go on with my experiment with mega mega mega C for at least a couple of weeks - that maybe for that period of time it won't hurt my bones?
People like Dr. Levy and others say you can't have too much Vitamin C. But I wonder. I did contact them and here is the site they sent me re acidity and C. The thing is they talk about C being mildly acidic, but I know from those little ph papers that it is way, way acidic at high levels.
