2. Overly Acidic Gut
An overly acidic gut is something that happens if you’re consuming too many acidic foods through your general diet. This can include very obvious things such as lemons, but will also contain things like any foods that produce acid in the gut – things containing pepper, chilli or curry. It can also sometimes happen to people who have a diet that’s high in hormone-containing meats like pork or processed chicken.
There are many different things that can cause an overly acidic gut. Most of them can be traced down to your diet, and when you have an overly acidic gut you are at an automatically higher risk of developing a kidney infection – and it can be one of the most common direct causes of this.
Medical attention is needed to fix the infection, but lifestyle change is also needed to fix the underlying cause of the kidney infection if you don’t want a recurring infection.
