Baking soda – you can use this powerful ingredient for almost everything. That’s really amazing, right? Well, baking soda or sodium bicarbonate is extremely cheap, but a very powerful ingredient. This ingredient can be used to fight colds and even cancer. You can also use it for oral hygiene, deodorants, etc. Many people around the world use baking soda. You can use this super healthy ingredient to treat and prevent many health problems, such as: diarrhea prevention, acidity, drug intoxication, metabolic acidosis and peptic ulcer. Baking soda has many antipruritic properties and keeps your skin healthy and glowing. Use it to eliminate plague and colds. You should also know that baking soda contains sodium and can prevent hyperkalemia, kidney stones and infections of the bladder.

1. Neutralize Stomach Acid

Yes, you got that right – you can use this powerful ingredient to neutralize stomach acid! Restore your pH balance easily by drinking a mixture of ½ tsp. baking soda and 1 cup of water. The body often turns acidic as a result of an unhealthy diet, but baking soda neutralizes this acidity and restores the body’s pH. The famous Doctor and Nobel prize winner Otto Warburg, has discovered that cancer cells can’t survive in an alkaline environment; these cells only thrive in an acidic body. In other words, keeping your body alkaline actually protects your health in general.


2. Relieve Heartburn

What causes heartburn? Well, according to the experts, heartburn is usually caused by acid buildup in the stomach. When this acid goes up the esophagus, a person experiences a burning sensation, a discomfort known as heartburn. Baking soda, which effectively neutralizes the acid at the source, can provide immediate relief.
3. Eliminate UTI

As we said, cancer cells and bacteria thrive in an acidic environment. Well, this means that if you are suffering from a UTI (urinary tract infection), you should drink baking soda water on a regular daily basis until the infection is over. A teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in a glass of water will do, but if symptoms persist, you should see your doctor.

4. Relieve Gout Pain

What’s gout? Well, gout is joint inflammation caused by uric acid buildup in your body. You can drink a sodium bicarbonate water mixture to relieve gout pain, because it prevents acid accumulation in the body.

5. Reduce Symptoms of Cold and Flu

Many people around the world have used baking soda mixture as a natural medicine against colds and flu. They’ve used this mixture for a long time. The thing is baking soda can effectively kill the virus if taken in the early stages of the infection. These are the recommended doses:

  • Day 1: 6 doses of ½ tsp. baking soda mixed with cool water every 2 hours.
  • Day 2: 4 doses of the same mixture every 3 hours.
  • Day 3: 2 doses of the mixture – one in the morning and one in the evening.
  • Day 4: 1 dose a day until the symptoms disappear.

6. Relieve Kidney Stone Discomfort

You should be careful, because uric acid buildup can be the cause for kidney stones as well. Drinking baking soda water regularly dissolves the stones and prevents the formation of new ones. You should see your doctor before you use this home remedy.

7. Improve Physical Performance

Among other things, baking soda water can also improve physical performance because the alkalinity of the sodium bicarbonate reduces the levels of lactic acid produced by the muscles, thus allowing harder and longer training.

This is a Test for Low-stomach-acid

Here’s what you need to know – well, the stomach produces hydrochloric acid, or HCL, as an aid to digestion. HCL is needed to break down proteins into essential amino acids, motivate the pancreas and prevent disease by killing harmful bacteria. Low HCL can cause a variety of gastric problems including heartburn, indigestion, constipation and bloating.

Note: to test your stomach acid levels, there are methods you can try at home. The most accurate methods, however, involve laboratory tests ordered by your physician. Conduct an at-home test to see if your HCL is low. Mix 1/4 tsp. of baking soda in an 8 oz. glass of cold water. Drink the baking soda and water mixture first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything. Time how long it takes to belch after drinking the mixture. You should belch within 2 to 3 minutes if your HCL is adequate. We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family.

    Best heartburns medicine in the world.

    My doctor prescribed very expensive meds for my acid reflux, so I started using bi-carb in water years ago. Now it turns out the meds prescribed by my doctor can actually do more harm than good, they can weaken bones and damage joints.
    Doctors nowadays are just another advertising arm of Big Pharma. Do the research before taking anything your doctor tells you to, as in many cases there are much cheaper, more natural ways to treat some medical problems. A raw food diet can stop diabetes in it’s tracks, for example.

    go Trump, go :grin:


      You’re pretty smart for a baby British Orangutan, you know that, Knobster?

    I used to use Baking soda in the past to stop my heartburn in it’s tracks but then I moved on to other homeopathic remedies which seemed LESS effective. After seeing this article I figured, why the hell not. For anyone wondering if this works, you bet your ass it does.

    That’s what my Mom used when I was sick or maybe ate too much candy lol.. Mom knew! :cool:

  • Man

    you don’t give a method to test stomach acid levels… and stomach acid levels are always acid….

    The only think this is good is to control your stomach acid… since it only reacts to that since after that the ph is balanced by Duodenum. Otherwise the rest of your intestines would have burned away
