Baking Soda Uses, You will be Surprised

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

I have read enough that I will adding Baking Soda into my daily regimen.  I drink my Shakeology daily which help alkalize the body as well, but wow, I am just amazed at all the research being done on Baking Soda.

Well I hope you found this article interesting and useful.  Please follow my blog if you like family, health, and fitness.

Thank you and God Bless…

Teaching the Children about the Holiday Spirit and Helping those in Need

This Holiday Season we wanted to change things up around our home.  Our children are loved and blind when it comes to how the world really operates or what other families go through.  Families who may not have a Happy Holiday Season with family unless they receive a little assistance or Hope for Christmas.  With this weighing heavily on our hearts and minds, we decided it was time for our children to learn what the true meaning of Christmas was.  {And yes they do know the true meaning of the Birth of Jesus} I want them to know the spirit of what Jesus stands for and how this affects all involved.

We talked about having the kids give up one of their toys, but what is that going to teach them….  Then we talked about just buying new toys and dropping them off into the donation box, but again what are they learning from that.  I mean both are nice and great ways to help out your community, but not exactly what I wanted my children to experience.

So my husband and I decided we were going to show/teach our children how good their lives are and hoping they will soak in the feeling of how GREAT you feel when you help someone.  With this in mind, I searched and happened to stumble across a number, that for some reason I just had to call.  I spoke with a lovely woman who has started a program for families who experience a house fire.  She and some volunteers store everything they can get their hands on to help families in their time of need.  During the Holidays though she also runs Hope for Christmas, which helps any family that falls through the cracks, meaning the government won’t give them any kind of support but they have fallen on Really hard times.  After speaking with her I knew this is what we needed to do, so we went and found a family we wanted to adopt for Christmas.  This particular family has been going through a really sad time and there are 4 wonderful children around our children’s ages.  After talking it over we decided this was the family we needed to help, it was like God directed me right to this Redemption Program and to this family.  We can only hope that we can provide some kind of healing for them during this holiday season, hopefully a little kindness may help to mend a small part of their souls.  Providing a  little Hope for the Holidays….a few needed smiles and some laughter to a family who needs it.  What this family doesn’t know is that they will providing us with something too, a sense of good will towards man, and a valuable lesson for our family.  I will let you all know how this goes, but I imagine it will be quite emotional, and Amazing.

I am not for sure what I like the most, helping out a family who needs some cheer and hope, my family learning a wonderful lesson or getting to deliver the present to a family who is so grateful to know others do care.  My family will not get to know the actual family we are buying for this Christmas, but we do get the honor of helping to deliver to some of the other families.  I believe the look on their faces when we show up with some Help, will be enough to change my families perspective.  Hopefully allowing them to be more open-minded and grateful for everything in their lives, along with being more kind and genuine toward others.  I believe we have started a Wonderful New Family Tradition……I am so Proud to be a part of this Tiberghien crew…
