The sodium bicarbonate [or baking soda] is a versatile substance, using many ways.
He is best known for his role in baking and cooking.
Or, he has many medicinal properties when mixed with water.
The bicarbonate of sodium can be obtained from natural deposits of natron.
Natron is a mineral, used in Antiquity as a cleaning substance.
Today, almost every house has a box of baking soda, cheap, safe and easy to use.
It has become part of the solution for many ailments and problems.
Baking soda for colds and flu
In 1924, le Dr Volney S. Cheney published a book titled ‘Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Medical Uses’, in which he recorded his experience of flu treatment.
He observed, that people treated with baking soda stayed healthy; or they developed a milder version of the disease.
Dr Cheney said he administered generous doses of sodium bicarbonate for the flu and, in many cases.
And, the symptoms disappeared in 36 hours.
He also suggested taking baking soda as a preventative measure..
The general belief is that when it is taken internally, baking soda helps maintain’pH balance in the bloodstream.
The substance has an alkalizing effect on the body, which is linked to better health and disease prevention.
Tips from Dr Cheney
If you want to follow the recipe prescribed by Dr Cheney from 1924 (which is still valid today), there she is.
- Take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water. (Six times a day, about two hours apart)
- Day 2: take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water. (Four times a day)
- The day 3: take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water. (morning and evening)
- After this initial period, take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water. (Each morning, until the symptoms disappear)
There are three forms of bicarbonate.
There are sodium bicarbonates, potassium and magnesium.
They are non-toxic primary alkalizing agents for the prevention and treatment of cancer, liver disease, type I and type II diabetes, of lupus, heart disease, pharmacological toxicosis, of the vascular surgery, tonsillar hernia due to cerebral edema, lactic toxicosis and hyponatremia [..].
Research by British scientists, at ‘Royal London Hospital’, show that sodium bicarbonate can significantly slow the progression of chronic kidney disease.
US military recognizes sodium bicarbonate as drug of choice for removing uranium toxicity from kidneys.
It is the only drug evaluated to do this.
Moreover, bicarbonates are the ultimate form of chemotherapy.
And, we can only laugh (or cry) of the deep madness that prevents all doctors from accepting this fact.
Drinking water with baking soda every day can help if you have chronic kidney disease.
One of the reasons is, that chronic kidney disease causes low bicarbonate levels but high acidity in the blood.
It is a factor that accelerates the progression of the disease.
In 2015, a study published in the journal ‘Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy’ found that sodium bicarbonate helps reduce inflammation of the kidneys and slows disease progression.
From now on, many hospitals include sodium bicarbonate supplements as part of their kidney care.
If you have chronic kidney disease, it's important to talk to your healthcare professional before using baking soda regularly.
Because sodium bicarbonate is alkaline, drinking baking soda and water can also help prevent kidney stones and gout.
