Wonders of Baking Soda
Baking Soda, or Sodium Bicarbonate, is a staple in homes for baking and cleaning purposes. Are you taking full advantage of all that baking soda has to offer?
Baking Soda is a natural chemical compound that restores health, cleanses the body and can remove toxic substances. Baking Soda is a natural substance that helps regulate PH. This keeps a substance from becoming too acidic or too alkaline.. important in maintaining health. When Baking Soda contacts another substance, it naturally neutralizes the pH of the substance and prevents imbalance of the PH. With this effect, baking soda is able to neutralize odors, remove stains, detox the body and eliminate infection. It is also effective for reducing pain, eliminating infection and treating inflammation.
Some people believe that when taken internally, baking soda can help maintain the pH balance in your bloodstream. This is likely the basic premise behind its recommended uses against both colds and influenza symptoms. Simply dissolve the recommended amount of baking soda in a glass of cold water and drink it. It is relatively harmless even if it doesn’t relieve your cold symptoms.
You’ll be amazed at the myriad of remedies you can whip up if you have a box of baking soda handy. Among them:
Ulcer Pain: Baking Soda should immediately neutralize stomach acid. Dosing is typically 1-2 teaspoons in a full glass of water.
Splinter removal: Add a tablespoon of baking soda to a small glass of water, then soak the affected area twice a day. Many splinters will come out on their own after a couple of days using this treatment.
Sunburn remedy: Add ½ cup of baking soda to lukewarm bathwater, then soak in the tub for natural relief. When you get out, let your skin air dry, rather than toweling off the excess baking soda, for extra relief. You can also add a mixture of baking soda and water to a cool compress and apply it to the sunburn directly.
Insect Bites: Apply a paste made of baking soda and water to insect bites to help relieve itching. You can also try rubbing the dry powder onto your skin. This is also effective for itchy rashes and poison ivy.
Detox bath: Baking soda and apple cider make a wonderful spa-like bath for soaking away aches and pains and detoxing. It also cleans the tub and the drain, as a bonus!
