If I were to ask you, what’s the largest organ in your body, what would your answer be? If you go by what we learned at school… you might respond "the skin." However, recent research has shown that a new organ is the largest organ in the body.

This giant organ is called the interstitium or fascia. It contains a fluid called the interstitial fluid, that compartmentalises the toxins in your body. The fascia can be found in between the blood and the skin. If your body gets too acidic, your blood will attempt to create balance, by using the interstitium as a buffer for the blood.

Interestingly, you can have clean blood work, because your body has compensated with the fascia. The only way to find out the truth about the pH of your body is to test the interstitial fluid. Which is a process that doctors rarely do.

In this article, we’ll go over what the fascia has to do with the pH of your body, your inner environment, sepsis, testing the pH of your body, as well as how body pH can change your DNA (and what to do about it).
