Baking Soda is not only great for cleaning, cooking and for in the refrigerator, but so much more. Sodium bicarbonate, known as Baking Soda is used as a Medical Treatment, whitening, itching and on and on. As I was doing some research I came across some info that just shocked me and has me reconsidering that little white powder, maybe it is a Magical Mixture. Baking Soda is not new to us, the Egyptians used it and it dates back to the 1700’s and maybe further. I found Baking Soda can be used for all of these occurrences.
*A DIY body scrub. Yep you can use this to clean your body and also clean your pores. Here is a recipe I found, fill a container with 2/3 coconut oil, 1/3 baking soda, and tea tree oil and scrub over your body in your bathtub or shower. The coconut oil is a natural moisturizer; the tea tree is a refreshing cleaner; and the coarseness of the baking soda will leave your skin smooth and silky.
*Alkalize your body. The most common dosage is this, 2-3 Tsp per gallon of water. Yep drink 2 tsp a day and you can keep disease at bay. Todays diets produce much more acidity within the body, which compromises immunity and causes a variety of health symptoms. Baking soda is an alkaline compound that reduces acidity in the body.
*One or two teaspoons of baking soda in an eight ounce glass of water twice daily is a common recommendation for people wanting to increase the alkalinity of their body. Of course, dietary changes are helpful too. (Livestrong)
*Baking Soda on bug bites to reduce the itching. Mix baking soda and water into a paste and apply topically to the bite to remove the itch. This works for taking the ouch and itch out of bee/wasp/hornet stings, spider bites, etc.
*Baking soda will help clean and brighten many things. Washing your towels with hot water, a cup of vinegar, and two tablespoons of baking soda, will not only get rid of residue, but it will increase the absorbance in the towel as well as restore its color.
*When you over indulge in Alcohol, baking soda has been known to be a hangover cure. 1 Tsp in a glass of water before you go to bed is supposed to reduce the chance of having a hangover.
*How about a relaxing foot bath. 1/4 cup of Baking Soda in some Hot Water and your feet will be revitalized and ready to go.
*Showing signs of a Cold or the Flu, well Baking Soda can help. Take 1/2 Tsp six times a day on the first day of onset of a cold. The next day you reduce to 5 times daily and so on.
*Of course we know you can use Baking Soda to brush your teeth, for whitening of teeth, and plaque busting.
*Our bodies actually produce Sodium Bicarbonate, in the pancreas. So if we are not producing enough then we may be on our way to health issues. Want to Detox try, 1 cup apple cider vinegar, combined with hot hot bath water, and 1/2 cup baking soda will DETOX your body while having a relaxing bath. Baking Soda reduces your lactic acid in your system and plain and simple it detox your system.
*Have Acid Reflex with no help from prescriptions. Well you may want to alter your diet, no high fat, high preservatives, high cholesterol foods. Try using Baking Soda, relief is known to happen within 60 seconds. Baking soda readily dissolves in water and is absorbed quickly in the intestines. Known to be helpful for acid reflex, indigestion or an upset stomach.
*Cancer Treatment with baking soda, yes seriously, certain doctors are using it when chemo and other treatments have failed, the baking soda alternative is working. Take a look at “Rich man poor mans cancer treatment,” a book all about baking soda and cancer. Dr. Tullio Simoncini’s treatment is primarily used for cancer of the digestive tract, including cancers of the throat, colon, intestines, rectal area, and other cancers in between. Baking soda has also been used for skin and external cancers. Curious here is his link. http://www.curenaturalicancro.com
