Baking Soda is probably one of the most important foods you can use for your health. Most people skip over baking soda because it just doesn’t sound like a very important food. They are not knowledgeable about the important uses of baking soda.
Balancing the acid-base ratios in your blood, body cells, urine, and saliva control your body health, immune system, immunity to cancer, and longevity.
Many people get baking soda mixed up with baking powder. They are not the same. Also, baking soda is called bicarbonate of soda. Besides being a food that does wonders for your health, Bicarbonate of soda will help perform dozens of other duties. It has been used for thousands of years to help people in many countries.
Ancient Egyptians used baking soda mixed with other materials for painting their hieroglyphics, to help keep fish from spoiling, used as an ingredient for cleaning, and as a mouthwash. Today, it is used for balancing the acid-base balance in your body, reduce odors in your refrigerator, as a cosmetic, for cleaning, a mouthwash, in many medicines, and much more. It can be used as invisible ink, and combined with sugar, will kill roaches and fleas. It is also a great household cleaner.
One of the greatest and very important functions of bicarbonate of soda is to help maintain a neutral body acid-base balance or neutral pH of the body. This is essential for keeping good health, a great immune system, prevent disease, plus increase a person’s longevity. An acidic body creates an environment that can cause many diseases. Many alternative functional medicine physicians recommend drinking baking soda every time your body cells show that they are acidic. It is very important for your health to maintain a neutral acid-base balance.
To explain further about checking your acid-base ratios in your blood, body cells, urine, and saliva, it is wise for a person to buy some hydrion pH litmus paper. They should check the pH of their saliva and uring every morning when they get up, and every night before brushing their teeth. They then can adjust their diet to maintain a neutral pH, which is 6.2 to 6.8. A pH of 6.4 is ideal for maintaining a great body acid-base balance. I get oral hydrion litmus paper from Daily Manufacturing Co. They also make very good vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Their phone number is 1 800 868 0700
When your body pH gets below 6.2, it shows your body is becoming more acidic. This means that TOXINS and INFLAMMATION are showing up in your small intestine, because of YOUR DIET. These toxins and inflammation can cause “LEAKY GUT.” That is a condition when toxins, bad bacteria, candida Albicans fungus, and even parasite larvae get into your blood. These bad hombre will cause all kinds of diseases. It also can change the chemical makeup of the mitochondria and initiate a cancer “HIT.” That is why, if your pH is more acidic, a daily tonic consisting of one to one and one-half teaspoon of baking soda, mixed with water, will help balance the pH to a more alkaline state. Researchers have also found that if a person is taking chemotherapy, baking soda will enhance the effects of conventional chemotherapy and chemo drugs.
I have mentioned before that barley powder is also a great alkaline helper and helps in raising a person’s pH. Keeping a neutral body cell and blood pH is a great disease preventive measure. For keeping up on a person’s body cell and blood pH, hydrion litmus paper is just about the only way it can be monitored.
Other uses for baking soda are many. Using baking soda to brush your teeth is a great help in keeping an alkaline environment in your mouth. Do not use baking soda by itself. Mix a small amount of coconut oil, and mix a paste. Then add some peppermint essential oil. There you have it. A great alkaline toothpaste which is as good or better for you that Peoxicare. Used as a mouthwash, baking soda is also great for rinsing and gargling.
Helping to reduce dialysis in kidney disease is also one of the uses of bicarbonate of soda. A study in the journal of the Society of Nephrology in 2009 stated that doctors found that 1 or 2 teaspoons of baking soda in water each day helped some kidney disease patients prevent a decline in kidney function.
Baking soda is also good to help in preventing osteoporosis. Many older people get an acid body from the diets that they eat. In those cases when the body is acidic, the blood will seek calcium to help regulate the heart rhythm. It comes from the bones and cartilage. This weakens the bones. To lower a person’s risk for osteoporosis, they can drink a glass of one or two teaspoons of baking soda in water every day. This will lower the risk of osteoporosis.
There are many other great uses for baking soda that I do not have room to mention. By far, it is one of the most overlooked foods in the health of the body. It not only helps maintain a great neutral pH, but has many other health benefits.

After two years of service in the Air Force, he started a private practice in East Wenatchee, Washington. For the past 45 years his practice has included Orthodontics and TM Dysfunction treatment specializing in temporomandibular pain treatment, headache, head and neck pain control, functional jaw orthopedics, and straight wire orthodontics. Associated with mercury elimination, oral surgery, crowns and bridges is TMJ treatment, diet control, parasite elimination, intestinal cleansing and healing (wellness).
Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has taught advanced courses for dentists on TM Dysfunction treatment, orthodontics and related pain control for more than 30 years. In 1972 he was the first dentist in Washington to use straight wire orthodontics and the first dentist to correct vertical deficiencies in children by placing vertical dimension-primary molar buildups and/or vertical (erupting) appliances. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. was involved with the first group of dentists to recognize lateral tongue splinting in young infants and integrate functional and fixed techniques to correct vertical dimension deficiencies and condylar placement. He is the originator of vertical dimension-primary molar build ups, which help to correct deep bites and Otitus media in children. He invented the Loudon-Chateau Anterior Repositioning Appliance, the functional muscle malocclusion concept, the twelve commandments of occlusion and the vertical overbite domino rule. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has written numerous articles in several American and foreign dental journals and has lectured in over 50 cities and 7 foreign countries on functional jaw orthopedics, fixed wire orthodontics, Otitus media treatment and TM Dysfunction treatment. He has been instrumental in setting up criteria for teaching in the International Association For Orthodontics, including the certified instructor program.
Dr. Loudon is a member of The American Dental Association, Diplomat and Senior Instructor in the International Association for Orthodontics, and is a Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management. He also is a member of the American Orthodontic Society.
