Baking Soda for the Common Cold

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a natural substance that alkalizes the body, killing disease-causing microbes. It can be a powerful medical tool to help many different health conditions. There are  even alternative doctors like Dr. Simoncini who have had some very good success using baking soda to treat cancer.

The viruses and colds going around this year have been particularly nasty.  I have one friend who has been ill for over 6 months with some sort of flu virus.  The alternative doctor she goes to has several patients with the same symptoms. He told her he has never seen anything like this virus, and usual treatment methods are not working.

Baking Soda for Colds & Flu

In 1924 Dr. Volney S. Cheney published a book called “Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Medical Uses”.  In his book, Dr. Cheney recorded his experience treating the flu with baking soda.  He observed that people who were treated with baking soda either remained healthy or developed milder symptoms.  Dr. Cheney was able to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of influenza in 36 hours with large doses of baking soda.

Dr. Cheney’s Treatment Protocol

If you would like to follow the recipe Dr. Cheney used in 1924, here it is:

  • Day 1 – Take 1/2 tsp of baking soda diluted in glass of cold water 6 times a day in 2 hour intervals
  • Day 2 – Take 1/2 tsp of baking soda diluted in glass of cold water 4 times a day
  • Day 3 – Take 1/2 tsp of baking soda morning and evening.
  • After this initial period, take 1/2 tsp of baking soda in a glass of cold water every morning until symptoms are gone
