Heartburn with Scleroderma, an Autoimmune Disease: Remedy Question

Posted by Marla (Montreal, Canada) on 02/04/2007

Please help me end my heartburn. I have an autoimmune disease, scleroderma. I have been on Losec for 19 months and have done 4 days of acv and baking soda. Well well well, it even helps me!!!I take it 3 times per day. Can I do this for a month? Please? Is there harm? Also when I drink my water, can I add baking soda to it? Quantity? Thanks so much. Great website. Amazing!!!

Actually ACV and baking soda can be taken as long as you like. It is done to neutralize all the excess imbalances of modern food that kills your system. This will bring you to balance. As long as you eat food you will need to take ACV and baking soda. It is not a requirement to take it everyday if your are healthy of course, but if you are sick, then the opposite is true.

Also when I drink my water, can I add baking soda to it?

You can add baking soda to your drinking water. Perhaps about 1/8 teaspoon and a tiny pinch of potassium bicarbonate or potassium citrate helps.

If you take too much your body will tell you. It will cause a diarrhea, which is good now and then as it detoxes your body. I like to get it once a week and it seems to clear my skin also.

The cause of scleroderma in certain cases may be due to a tiny mycoplasma which bought about the condition. In which case zinc acetate 50 mg every other day, may normalize the immune functions as well as some iodine foot painting, maybe twice a week. A sodium ascorbate vitamin C (or ascorbic acid with baking soda), 1000 mg/day would normalize the body's inflammation somewhat as it raises the body's nitric oxide to some extent.

A drop of lavender oil in a glass of water may help that too for the scleroderma. If you think scleroderma is due to invading mycoplasma, then a pinch of borax in a drinking water would stop the scleroderma then and there.

Just send us your feedback and we would be happy to hear from you, whether it works for you or not and sharing your results could also help other people too with similar conditions.
