You probably have some idea how great baking soda can be – but we bet you had no idea it was this amazing!
Sodium Bicarbonate, otherwise known as baking soda, is enjoying the spotlight as researchers begin to study baking soda and cancer. Known for many years as the cure for all things fungal, baking soda is now taking center stage in many studies around the world.
That focus is bringing to the fore the concept that cancer and fungal infections go hand in hand.
“When taken orally with water, especially water with high magnesium content, and when used transdermally in medicinal baths, sodium bicarbonate becomes a first-line medicinal for the treatment of cancer, kidney disease, diabetes, influenza and even the common cold.
And importantly, it is also a powerful buffer against radiation exposure, so everyone should be up to speed on its use.”
Bicarbonate deficiency is the most unrecognized medical condition on earth even though it is extraordinarily common.Problems from acid pH levels (relative deficiency in bicarbonate ions) take a large toll from human physiology and the more acid a person gets the larger the problem for cell physiology. Every biochemical reaction is pH sensitive with enzymes being especially sensitive. Our diet plays an important role in maintaining appropriate pH levels in the body.
Most modern diets give rise to unhealthy acidic pH conditions. An imbalanced pH will interrupt cellular activities and functions to extreme levels as ph drops further. Excessive acidic pH leads to cellular deterioration which eventually brings on serious health problems such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and heartburn.
The fact that the biological life functions best in a non-acidic (alkaline) environment speaks miles about the usefulness of baking soda.
“I have used intravenous sodium bicarbonate therapy mostly as a naturopathic treatment for patients who consistently react to allergens or that have chemical sensitivities. This is a great therapy during the Vancouver allergy seasons of spring and fall. The alkalinizing sodium bicarbonate IV can often immediately stop an allergic reaction, or asthmatic attack, since such reactions cannot persist in an alkaline environment.
Some of my patients also get benefit from taking an alkalinizing drink every night to reduce their chemical sensitivity symptoms,” writes Dr Eric Chan. “All of my Vancouver and Richmond patients have tolerated this therapy markedly well.”
