How to Repair Your Kidneys Naturally Using Baking Soda

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
Very few people are aware that many household chemicals you use in the kitchen have untapped healing properties. One of the most common household items, however, has a potential that is rather difficult to believe. The basic ingredient in baking soda, sodium bicarbonate, has come under increased scrutiny lately because it appears that this chemical has the potential to repair or improve the operation of the human kidney.
In 2009, British scientists at the Royal Hospital in London uncovered research that bicarbonate slows the progress of kidney disease. In addition, the US National Health Institute has conducted experiments that show that kidney dialysis using bicarbonate agents have more restorative properties than standard dialysis treatments. It may be hard to accept, but the box you keep in your refrigerator to keep the ham from stinking may also save your life.
What Causes Kidney Damage
First, it is important to understand what causes typical kidney damage so you can understand how it is normally treated and how sodium bicarbonate differs from these standard treatments. Your endocrine system produces hormones and enzymes to help digest food into safer chemical your body can process. The pancreas is normally the organ that produces the majority of sodium bicarbonate to protect your kidneys during digestion.

Sometimes, even your kidneys will produce additional amounts of this enzyme depending on the type of diet you subject your digestive system to. If your diet puts too much strain on these two organs (especially a diet rife with sugars, fried fatty foods and other unhealthy choices that cause your endocrine system to work overtime in order to process these proteins and sugars), they will both suffer significant reduction in their ability to produce sodium bicarbonate naturally.
Without sufficient bicarbonate production to neutralize the acids produced during digestion, these acids can erode organ health, damage your kidneys and speed the aging process in adults.
How Does Bicarbonate Repair Kidneys
When those with significant kidney damage undergo dialysis or kidney treatment, sodium bicarbonate is one of the most common agents used. This process, known as acid buffering, is means of base supplementation, and is the basis for most new forms of dialysis treatments. This agent, when processed through the dialysis machine, helps in the removal of excess fluids and waste material from your bloodstream.
Therefore, dialysis is helping add the sodium bicarbonate that your kidneys can no longer produce into your endocrine system to help you process food and waste materials in your blood stream. When your body is producing normal amounts of bicarbonate on its own, this can extend the life of your kidneys, your overall endocrine system and your total lifespan.
What evidence provides substantial proof of this claim?
The US National Health Institutes conducted studies that first noted the effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate dialysis in the place of normal, acetate-free biofiltration dialysis. Patients place on the SBD treatment had greater nitrate oxide synthase, the process that balances the pH of your blood. Patients on normal acetate-free biofiltration had a lower reaction than BHD in activating vessel wall cells to synthesis/release of pro-inflammatory and pro-apoptotic mediators.
Additionally, other studies done by Dr Ione de Brito-Ashurst and his colleagues from the Department of Renal Medicine and Transplantation, showed that daily sodium bicarbonate intake slows the progress of chronic kidney disease and prevent patients from ever having to undergo kidney dialysis.
This randomized controlled trial showed that patients were given a minor daily dose of SB during a yearlong period had only 2/3 of the kidney function decline shown in patients given standard kidney disease treatment. In short, sodium bicarbonate can prevent and in some case reverse the onset of chronic kidney failure and stop related diseases like heart disease and end-stage renal disease.
How Should You Use Baking Soda to Repair Your Kidneys Naturally?
Daily sodium bicarbonate intake is not for everyone. It is usually administered in powder form along with water and can be very difficult for sensitive stomach or who are easily prone to nausea to ingest easily. Fortunately, it is not toxic, so anyone who can tolerate the appalling taste and can overcome the initial onset of nausea can take it daily to prevent kidney disease and degeneration of your endocrine system.
Properly administering for those in danger of developing kidney disease involves initially includes taking 1/2 teaspoon of SB sublingual (dissolve it under your tongue) on the first day. Next, take 1/2 teaspoon of SB and 1/2 tsp of sodium chloride (cooking salt) in 1.5 liters of drinking water daily for two to three days. Then, reduce your daily dosage to 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/3 tsp salt. If this still makes you feel sick, then just take the listed amounts of sodium bicarbonate sublingually every day.
People should note that there are still some additional test that need to be conducted to create a complete picture of the benefits that daily sodium bicarbonate intake might produce. However, for those who are serious about repairing the damage that an unhealthy lifestyle or a fat and sugar rich diet may have cause, household baking soda may be the miracle you have been looking for.

    People should not self treat life threatening illness, based on what you read on the internet. I would especially stress the BIN is not the venue for medical help. Nothing is safe for everyone, and everything has it’s dangers.

      The remedy of baking soda, which is non-toxic BTW, and also known to repair a whole host of deceases and ailments, can serve as a wonderful solution to illnesses. Always use an abundance of caution when seeking remedies and always do your homework.

      But, also remember that medical doctor’s businesses are called a “Practice”. They practice medicine. So keep that in consideration when consulting medical advice, afterall, big pharma does not make their money curing you, they make their money PURSUING a cure for you.

      If you don’t believe me find out what was the real reason why Jerry Lewis was removed and let go as the spokesman of the Muscular Dystrophy Assn. Here’s the story according to Time Magazine:

      So, keep it all in perspective, and always remember that you are responsible for your own health. Cheers!

        If you’re gonna do this (who knows if it works or not) use plain bicarbonate powder instead of SODIUM bicarbonate. Taking a lot of this stuff a day like I’ve seen some recommend would FAR exceed the amount of sodium you should be taking in per day.

        • Man

          LOL, i can tell you are an expert you can’t have plain bicarbonate since bicarbonate is an ion. you need sodium or potassium to actually be a physical chemical

          • The Clucker

            Sorry I wasn’t more specific and that I’m not a brilliant scientist like yourself.


            Ingredients: Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium Carbonate, Glucono Delta Lactone, Citric Acid.

            Not bicarbonate in that way. Just carbonate.

        Absolutely right about big pharma not wanting to cure you. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a year and a half ago. Doc kept adding to the meds to “manage” the progressive disease that only gets worse with time, right?

        Wrong! A year and a half later I no longer take any diabetes meds. And of course one should be very cautious self medicating, or self un-medicating as was my case. (my fasting glucose level is hovering at a 14 day avg of 104, with no meds since August, and is continuing its decline) Do a bunch of research, etc, etc. But you are in control of your body so the final decision is yours.

        Want to know what did it? Intermittent fasting (along with a sensible diet free of soda pop and light on the carbs); I take no calories between 9:00pm and 2:00pm the next afternoon. Watch Dr Jason Fung’s videos on you tube, and research fasting, and intermittent fasting and why it works.

        The dietary recommendations made by a bunch of governmental bureaucrats (including sodium intake, fatty foods, etc.) should always be taken with a grain of salt as they are most times changed within a few years or presidential administrations. Just look at all the yummy food the First Lady wants your children to eat.

    That’s good advice and well written. Thanks

    Actually putting baking soda into your mashed potatoes is the easiest way to do it.
    I personally also add Wheat Germ into my mash potatoes.
    This is also a preventative for cancer as well. It makes the body alkaline which cancer cannot live in.

    An added note – when you use baking soda — later in the day also take a good Natural Multiple B vit of at least 50 mg each B vitamin, since baking soda depletes the B vit in the body, so take extra B Vitamins.

    B vitamins are water soluble so they are used up fast by the body. So take as much B vit as you can.

    can’t you just mix a 1/2 tsp. with water and drink it ??

    Appalling taste? It tastes like salt. Am I doing this wrong? I’m adding a tablespoon to a glass of water every morning; not a quarter teaspoon. Doesn’t bother me at all.
