Baking Soda/Water Detoxification

Drinking baking soda or bicarbonate powder, dissolved in water is a folk remedy that has been used for many generations to alleviate the symptoms of indigestion, heartburn, infections and arthritis, among other problems. Baking soda is an alkaline compound that reduces acidity in the body. The typical American diet is highly acidic, which allows many diseases and conditions to develop and flourish. Baking soda, taken in moderate amounts and at appropriate times, promotes healthy biochemistry.

The typical American diet has changed greatly over the last century. In earlier eras, Americans consumed much more fresh vegetables, fruits, dairy products, while only eating moderate amounts of animal-based protein, which contributed to a healthy alkaline environment within the body. In recent decades, the American diet has become based on “fast foods,” refined and processed prepared foods, carbohydrates, sugary drinks and excessive amounts of high-fat meats. Modern diets produce much more acidity within the body, which compromises immunity and causes a variety of symptoms.

Human blood must be alkaline to effectively transport nutrients and waste products, and to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide with other tissues. Specifically, the blood must measure close to 7.35 on the pH scale, which is a logarithmic measurement of hydrogen ions and acidity. An acidic diet puts the body into a crisis because it threatens to lower the pH measurement of the blood. According to “Biochemical, Physiological and Molecular Aspects of Human Nutrition,” the body reacts by liberating calcium and magnesium from the skeleton and depositing it into the bloodstream and other tissues, which has an alkalizing affect. However, mineral loss weakens and disfigures bones and leads to osteoporosis, osteomalacia and arthritis. Excessive minerals in the bloodstream contribute to atherosclerosis, or hardened arteries. Further, acidity reduces immunity and promotes the growth and proliferation of pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses and parasites.

Benefits of Water & Baking Soda Detox

Drinking baking soda dissolved in water is a quick and affordable method of neutralizing the effects of an acidic diet or meal. Baking soda readily dissolves in water and is absorbed quickly in the intestines. It can be helpful for acid reflex, indigestion or an upset stomach. The carbonation that occurs when baking soda is mixed with water can promote burping, which can relieve excess gas and bloating. According to “Human Biochemistry and Disease,” the alkalinity that occurs with drinking baking soda can dissolve the painful uric acid crystals of gout and relieve the inflammation of arthritis.

Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate works as an antacid to neutralize excess stomach acid and provide relief for heartburn, acid indigestion or an upset stomach, according to the Mayo Clinic. Taking baking soda to reduce stomach acid is a short-term solution to relieve the problem. Restrict your use of baking soda to no more than two weeks. If you have recurrent or persistent symptoms, speak with your doctor. Also, adhere to the specific package directions or your doctor’s instructions for the amount of baking soda to take.

 

Materials/Methods of Water/Baking Soda Detoxification

  1. Baking soda dissolved in water is best taken between meals. One or two teaspoons of baking soda in an eight ounce glass of purified water twice daily is a common recommendation for people wanting to increase the alkalinity of their body. (If taken with food, it will reduce the effectiveness of the stomach’s acid and compromise digestion. Of course, dietary changes are helpful too, but the baking soda is often easier for people to start with. Some people prefer pure bicarbonate powder, which has the same alkalizing affect).
  2. 1/2 lemon and 1/2 tsp of baking soda in a 12oz of warm(not boiling) water, first thing in the morning. Start prepping for the day and have something to eat after which is usually about 20-30 minutes later…

Step 5 – 1.            Monitor your sodium intake. One teaspoon of baking soda contains 1,259 milligrams of sodium. The Institute of Medicine’s recommended daily intake for sodium is 1,500 milligrams for an adult with the maximum level being 2,300 milligrams. Consider alternative treatments if you are on a sodium-restricted diet.

Tips and Warnings
