Baking Soda – Better Than Drugs?

A Health Miracle in Your Kitchen Cupboard

Did you know that sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) can help cure a cold, prevent kidney stones and urinary tract infections, and may even be a potential treatment for some forms of cancer?    If these things are true, why don’t we all know about it?  Well, apparently we did.   Baking soda was once a go-to remedy for many ailments.  Of course that was before the we became prisoners to the pharmaceutical industry….

Baking Soda Can Remedy Health Conditions

Baking soda may be one of the most useful substances that everyone has access to. Baking soda is found everywhere in nature, including our bodies, soil, food and oceans.

Disease thrives in a body that is over-acidic.  Baking soda raises the pH of the body.  Baking soda can be taken orally, or for more severe conditions, intravenously.  The latter must be done with a health professional of course.

Medical Uses for Baking Soda

Baking soda is very versatile.  It is an excellent antacid for heartburn and acid indigestion. Dr. Eric Chan, who practices in the Vancouver, B.C. area, uses an intravenous solution of sodium bicarbonate in his patients during allergy season.  Other medical professionals use  it to treat asthma in children.

Urinary Tract Infection – For people who tend to get urinary tract infections, adding baking soda to a cranberry juice/water concoction may help to relieve it.

Kidney Stones – If a person has acidic urine, over time this can lead to the formation of kidney stones.  Baking soda may help prevent this.

Gout – This is a condition of joint inflammation from an excess of uric acid build-up.  The alkalinity of baking soda may help reduce symptoms.

Muscle Pain & Fatigue – If you have ever exercised strenuously, you have probably suffered from pain caused by lactic acid build-up. Drinking baking soda and water can help to eliminate the excess lactic acid.

Baking Soda and Cancer

Malignant tumors are masses of cancer cells.  These cells require an acidic environment to grow. Raising the pH around the tumors literally starves them and stops them growing. Injecting baking soda into the area of the tumor will turn the acidic environment, alkaline.

In 2009 a study was done with mice that showed very good promise using baking soda for some (not all) types of tumors. Dr. Tullio Simoncini, an Italian oncologist, treats his patients who have certain types of cancer with baking soda.

If you want more information on how sodium bicarbonate can be used medicinally, there is an excellent E-Book by Mark Sircus, A.C., OMD called “Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment“.

To your Health!
