Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda Question

Posted by Gisela (Miami, FL) on 11/25/2006

It was great when I found your web site I used ACV/honey 3xday for a long time and I always felt great never got sick even when everybody around me got sick. recently a few months ago I went thru very stressful time at home and I started having heart burn and I stop using it for a while but I missed it so much I always felt great before. My heart burn got worse and my throat sting badly, now that I found your site I started using it again with the baking soda and feels a lot better than just with ACV, but still have a little burning on my chest. I read about advices you gave to other people about the lemon and baking soda I would like to ask you if I should switch for 2/wks and do lemon/bsoda 3xtimes a and how much water do I add. Please advise.

Yes, you can do it. There is one case of boy took 4 times a day of lemon/baking soda just to get his pH to normal since he was suffering from a parasites problems which releases a lot of microbes causing the body to be very acidic.

Therefore, it is necessary to monitor your urinary pH to determine the frequency of your dose. After taking for 1 hour, you can check for your urinary pH and see if it is in the normal range.

If it is not, more will reduce the problems indicated. But if not it appears the body has some yeast/fungus/bacteria problem, which can be dealt with taking chinese parsley, N Acetyl Cysteine, and 1/4 teaspoon of EDTA per liter of water, to get out the heavy metal burden.

Sugar and all sweets must be eliminated from the diet necessary for a recovery. Raising the immunity with zinc and once a week iodine foot painting 3-4 square inches should help. Take some licorice extract and some glycine is important.

I have found people with acid reflux, in some cases turns out to be anorexic! In that case taking vitamin B complex 100 mg for B1 B3 B4 B5 B6 B8, except for B12 at 100 mcg once or twice a day would solve nearly most causes of acid reflux I can think off.

The other issue is magnesium chloride seems to be quite helpful for anorexic conditions and acid reflux in some cases. 250 mg/day taken only once a week or twice a week would be more than enough to notice some improvement.

One indicator that the body needs it is sound sensitivity or tinnitus. One variation of tinnitus I got to know is sound sensitivity to high frequency sounds. In that case, it is a heavy metal burden, where chinese parsley taken once or twice a week would be helpful. Ted
