- Dr. Verigin’s Comment: Acid / Alkaline pH Body Balance
Between last year’s Prop. 37 campaign and this year’s March Against Monsanto, it looks like we might be hitting critical mass on nutritional awareness.

Very often, the message is about the acidic standard American diet and how crucial it is to eat a more alkaline diet. They say “eat this and avoid that,” but just as often, that’s where it ends, with no explanation of why this matters or how it could possibly make a person healthier.
While food choice is important, nutrition-focused health is about much more. It’s part of a vibrant dynamic involving the extracellular matrix (ECM), or biological terrain.
