The sodium bicarbonate is a chemical item like white solid crystal and is fine powdery often, salty to the taste and alkaline too. It has many benefits for millennia so far. Even in Egypt, it was used as paint for their hieroglyphics.
The first factory ever that made the baking soda was in 1846 in New York and was made by the 2 bakers Austin Church and John Dwight. It has many uses and mostly this is for cleaning, medicine, beauty and care.
Some of the medicinal uses:
- Raised pH
- Mixed with water it makes a paste and cures allergies due to the sumac/ivy
- Mix soda and water as antacid
- Removes splinters
- For kidney failure it reduces the disease speed
This item is healthy for us and is made in the kidneys and pancreas to stop kidney damage. When this is reduced, acid builds up in the body and we cannot make this neutral. Now, cell destruction begins and we need to eliminate the acid deposits with more water and oxygen.
Usage of baking soda for kidney repair
Dissolve ½ tsp baking soda under the tongue and then have ½ tsp baking soda and ½ tsp salt in 1.5 liters water. Have this for 3 days. Those that have kidney issues have deficit in sodium bicarbonate and this is named metabolic acidosis.
What Dr. Thomas P. Kennedy said?
Well, switching sodium solution for saline infusion prior radio contrast reduces the incidence of neuropathy. 3 million British people suffer from kidney issues and 37.800 need renal replacement therapy and this costs $45.165 per year.
Experts of White Chapel Hospital, Royal London made the first test in clinical setting and said sodium bicarbonate lowers side effects in kidney problems. The team leader, Magdi Yaqoob renal medicine professor said that this was the first randomized study and is amazing.
The study had 134 test patients with advanced kidney stages issues and metabolic acidosis, also there was a random selected small group with daily doses of sodium bicarbonate in a pill form for a year.
Lastly, the kidney work declined to normal rate as expected with normal aging and dialysis need was reduced too.
Also, the group had slower health decline than the rest, just 9% of the group who got the sodium had speeded up progress of the disease and the rest was 45%.
Magdi added that this study only proved the baking soda is healthy for the kidneys since there is a chemical reaction limiting the ammonia making in the kidneys.
This strategy is cheap and simple and makes patients feel better and have a healthier life with no need for dialysis.
Baking soda is not a medicine so this study was never tried before now.
