The veins hold many mechanisms in the body that perform together to upkeep a decent PH balance inside and outside of the human body. Ph is measured by the acidic or alkaline substance. Ph holds a scale of 0-14, 0 acting as the most acidic and 14 having the highest alkaline. For the human body to exist it needs to maintain the PH close to 7.4, which is is on the side of alkaline. If the the bodies PH changes often it becomes troublesome formany enzymes to employ properly. Preserving this alkaline level is a challenge due to the acid-forming activity that appears inside the bodyand the excess of acid generating foods we absorb.

As farbackas the early 1900’s doctors began studying different foods seeking to find what foods were modifying the bodies PH balance. They found that most foods produced alkaline or acidic. They also found that by altering you diet, the PH level in the body would transform and bring the PH closer to the normal range. This would help ease a patient’s pain.
