Many components of the modern western diet – meats, fish, dairy products, most grains, sugars, alcohol and caffeinated drinks (in fact, almost everything except vegetables, millet, most fruits and, as we have just seen, apple cider vinegar) – contribute to one’s body becoming too acidic.
This is because your body will attempt to compensate by retaining alkaline salts in the bloodstream to offset the increase of tissue acidity. Since your body can only tolerate a small imbalance in blood pH (the acid-alkali balance), it will rob alkaline components from other places – including your body’s precious alkaline reserves – in an effort to restore proper pH equilibrium.
This can result in heartburn, digestive distress, stomach upset, fatigue and a multitude of other symptoms.
A great deal of tap water (or even store-bought spring water) is surprisingly acidic; filtration will remove toxins but will not affect the pH balance of the water.
Viruses and diseases such as colds, flu, cncer and even heart disease thrive in an acidic body, but cannot survive when your body is alkaline.
Taking baking soda at the very beginning of cold or flu symptoms, such as a runny nose or sneezing, to help kill the viruses. If you’re an athlete, use sodium bicarbonate with water to buffer lactic acid buildup and improve your exercise performance.
Simple baking soda may also weaken the desire for a cigarette as well as reduce the desire for sugar and sweets. It’s used in kidney dialysis to reduce the level of acids in the bloodstream, and acts to prevent bacterial growth in food products.
As it mixes with the hydrochloric acid in the stomach, baking soda triggers a chemical reaction, and its end products are salt (NaCl, or sodium chloride), carbon dioxide (CO2) and water. The water is harmless, and the carbon dioxide gets released as a gas, producing a familiar burp once the acid is neutralized.
