Acidosis & Cytokines, Pain and Inflammation

So in my current little slump I have been having worse pain and inflammation and fatigue. I am back on treatment right now for candida, but it only makes some difference. On Monday my doctor told me she felt I was in acidosis. Now I am familiar with the acidic/alkaline body balance and food list, but I have not given it the attention it deserves. Even though my diet is strict to the nth degree I find I tend to crave and eat mostly acidic foods. So I am going to try and do a lot better at keeping my body more alkaline and eat mostly alkaline foods.

This is important for my current discomfort and healing, but also because of proven research that disease and cancers thrive in an acidic environment. A few good links:

Also acidosis seems to greatly increase cytokines, which is a familiar word by now for the Lymie:
