The symptoms can include light-headedness, numbness in legs and face, muscle twitching and spasms, nausea, vomiting and-in the most severe cases-coma and death. If you have too little alkalinity, the low amount of stomach acids do not properly digest food. The food sits longer in your stomach and, “at the same time, the low stomach acid promotes an environment that is more friendly to the growth of microorganisms, which are fed by the carbohydrates that become fermented from sitting in the stomach for too long” (http://www.sott.net).
