Our expert says:
There tends to be a controversy about what is meant by the concept "acidic foods". Foods that have an acid taste like lemon juice, citrus fruits and strawberries do not actually produce an acid reaction in the body once they are metabolised, in contrast the final product of the metabolism of such foods is alkaline. Acid residues are formed by meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, peanut butter, peanuts, bacon, Brazil and walnuts, all types of bread, cereals, pasta, corn on the cob, cranberries, plums, prunes and plain cakes and cookies. Alkaline residues are formed in the body when we eat all milk and dairy products, almonds, chestnuts, coconut, all types of fruit (except corn on the cob, lentils), all types of fruit except the ones listed under acid ash. Fats and oils, sugar, honey, maizena, tapioca and coffee and tea are classed as neutral. I think you may be developing sweat rashes which are probably unrelated to your diet. It may, however, be a good idea to have a checkup with a Dermatologist to see if you have a skin condition that can be treated. The artificial cooldrink may well contain some ingredient such as an artificial flavouring or preservative that is giving you a reaction. Try cutting it out for awhile to see if the condition improves.
I am, however, worried that the nausea you experience may be due to gastritis or ulcers. Do have a medical checkup to see if you have ulcers so that you can obtain the necessary treatment.
