Baking soda or otherwise called sodium bicarbonate is a chemical compound which is solid crystalline and white in color. We have mostly seen it as fine powder. It has an alkaline and salty flavor.
People have used it since ancient times. The ancient Egyptians have used it in its natural form so that they could paint their hieroglyphics.
The first manufacturing factory that started making baking soda was started by Austin Church and John Dwight who were both cooks in New York.
Baking soda can be used for various things: as a toothpaste, for cleaning, cooking, as a cleanser, antiperspirant etc. It even contains medicinal purposes!
These are some of the medicinal benefits baking soda has:
- It is beneficial in getting out splinters.
- If you mix water with baking soda, it will act as an antacid.
- It can help you treat allergic reactions due to poison ivy/sumac. You just have to prepare a paste made of water and baking soda.
- It increases the pH levels.
- It can help you against kidney failure and it can also stop the growth of this disease.
Sodium bicarbonate is something that we all need for our wellbeing. Our kidneys and pancreas are organs that create bicarbonate that we need for the protection of our kidneys. If these organs decrease in bicarbonate production, then acid starts to accumulate in our bodies. We need plenty of minerals, vitamins, nutrients and water so that we could eliminate this acid accumulation.
Here, we’re going to present you a way that can help you repair your kidneys in a natural way using baking soda:
People with an increased risk of getting a kidney disease should make sure they take baking soda in these doses:
Day 1 – Take ½ a teaspoon of baking soda and put it beneath your tongue.
Day 2 – Prepare a mixture with ½ a teaspoon of baking soda, ½ a teaspoon of salt and 1.5 liters of water. This should be consumed every day for 2 or 3 days.
People who have some kidney disease have a decreased level of bicarbonate in their organism. This is called metabolic acidosis.
Dr. Thomas P. Kennedy claims that if doctors use a solution of sodium bicarbonate instead of a saline infusion before they use radiocontrast material on their patient, it will definitely decrease the rate of nephropathy.
3 million people have some kidney disease in the UK. Almost 37,800 of those patients will need a renal substitution treatment that will include a kidney transplant and dialysis. This treatment is extremely expensive and costs about $45,165 (£30,000) every year.
The White chapel hospital in Royal London made a research on baking soda and came to the conclusion that it can really reduce the kidney infection. The group leader was Magdi Yaqoob, a Professor of Renal Medicine. She stated that sodium bicarbonate is a basic cure but when you use it appropriately, it becomes very powerful.
134 patients were tested. They were all in some high stages of metabolic acidosis and kidney disease. They took sodium bicarbonate in the form of a small tablet for one year. They managed to have kidneys that resemble normal ones and they didn’t even need dialysis.
According to professor Yaqoob, sodium bicarbonate can help people who have a kidney disease but only when it’s given under supervision.
Baking soda is still not confirmed as a real medicine, so make sure you use it wisely and under supervision of a doctor!
