Amount of Baking Soda

Posted by D on 07/21/2007

Hi, Ted. On the phlebitis page, you don't specify the amount of baking soda. My mother is taking the lemon/baking soda concoction and was wondering how much baking soda she should actually be taking. Would you let me know? Thanks so much.

Actually a thrombosis is caused whenever the body's level of ORP (lowered antioxidant levels) is off as a result the dose would be the usual 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day.

However, a vitamin C of sodium ascorbate is also needed between 250 mg to 500 mg so that the antioxidant level is reached. It takes a couple of weeks to see the improvements. The dose mentioned here should get you minimum problems. This is the main remedy.

There is another newer remedy, using the lime or lemon bicarbonate. In this case it is one whole freshly squeezed lime, which should equal about 8 teaspoon of lime juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water. This has the vitamin C, and other things and is often more effective than just the baking soda taken alone. The body can take 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda alone, without much problems but for sensitive people it is usually the 1/4 teaspoon that's used, but the 1/2 teaspoon has better results.

Since the lime's acidity will neutralize some excess alkalinity, thus increasing more components to buffer the body pH acidity, the dose for the lemon (lime) can be increased on the baking soda side to 1/2 teaspoon with few problems and hence, this makes the lime (lemon) bicarbonate remedy a more effective one since it has the vitamin C also. It however helps that some vitamin C sodium ascorbate 250-500 mg (for older people) be taken now and then, usually about 5 days out of a week should have minimal problems.

The lime (lemon) and baking soda is also taken twice a day. Once in the morning and once before bedtime. To neutralize all the acid/basis, a 1/2 glass of water is generally sufficient.
