Baking Soda- Miracle Cure ?

Baking Soda is a simple product that just about everyone keeps in his or her kitchen.  A small container can cost under one dollar. I've always used baking soda ( bicarbonate of soda) in my refrigerator to absorb odor and to help my muffins rise! - but I never knew it could help balance your PH and improve your health.

 Well, I'm finding out that bicarbonate of soda can also play a role in helping us lower our risk of disease like diabetes and even some cancers. 

Today I received an E-mail from Dr. Josh Axe ( a chiropractor on line that I follow)  who has a website with lots of informative health information.

Dr. Josh Axe 

His post was about the vast amount of ways one can use baking soda both medicinally and for non toxic cleaning in the house. The list was really interesting and helpful. I would have never have guessed how useful and versatile this inexpensive product can be and how beneficial for one's health.

Here are a few of the simple examples that he suggests using baking soda,

Some very basic uses:

  • for stomach pain
  • digestive problems
  • bloat and gas
  • neutralizes acid in the body
  • balances body ph necessary to fight disease
  • helps reduce symptoms of gout
  • shortens length of colds and flu, coughs, sore throats
  • helps with urinary tract infections
  • helps muscle pain 
  • promotes kidney health
  • a body with a balanced ph fights disease better
  • insect bites
  • poison ivy 

In addition to the benefits for health, baking soda is a great non toxic cleaner for the house . Read his post to learn how much to use, how to use it, and look through lots of additional ideas,

For Disease and health: 
Dr. Young says you can REVERSE DISEASE by alkalizing the ph of your body ( baking soda can help do that) 

 It can also be used in serious illness too which is explained in Dr. Robert Young's video. 

Dr. Young explains how important it is to balance the ph for reversing diabetes and for weight loss.*Dr. Robert Young has written many books on PH balance and how important it is in 
(reversing) diabetes and even cancer. His video is very interesting. I linked one of his 8 minute youtube videos about reversing diabetes. Worth watching it!

    1. I did not know that baking soda had an alkalizing affect on the body, which is so helpful in preventative care. We do use it for several of the uses you mention, but I will be looking more into the health impact of baking soda now. Thank you for sharing this information!

      1. There is a lot of info all over the Internet. I hope you find something helpful.

    2. Thanks for a new place to look for health information and practical ideas. I do have to take a peek at the doc's site so I can be smart like you.

      We have a pizza place that made Pesadik pizza with potato starch. Kids in my class had it and said they could taste the potato starch. I bet that place made money.

      1. Dr. Axe has some wonderful posts.
        Who wouldn't love pizza on pesach and I'll bet it was gluten free too...

    3. Good Information. Really, baking soda is a miracle cure for dangerous diseases that you have mentioned in this post.
