Aside from stomach upset, what could too much consumed vinegar/lemon juice do to the body?
I use a lot vinegar and lemon juice to flavor my food.
How much is too much?
How detrimental might too much be, and how could it affect my body?
Could it strip my body of minerals?

Your body generates and neutralizes quite a bit of acid daily. Don't over-think it.

I think you are overthinking things. Vinegar and lemon juice both have great health benefits.
If anything the acidity would increase mineral absorption in the stomach.
Relax, Paleo is meant to be a lifestyle, not "let's overthink every single food I eat." No. If you reacting negatively to a certain type of food, stop eating it. Simple.
