Baking Soda Vs Sodium Bicarbonate
Dear Sir; I've appreciated your knowledgable input on so many of the health issues brought up on this site.
Recently, in order to address a severe gout problem that developed after I had cancer surgery on my kidney, I began drinking 1-tsp of baking soda mixed with 8-oz. of water. I've been on this so-called remedy for three days now, but the gout persists, just not as painful.
In reading some of the remedies posted for other health issues, the use of baking soda was also referenced. On a recent post, a lady from Australia pointed out that baking soda and sodium bicarbonate are being confused with one another. She points out that the product being referred to is rightly sodium bicarbonate and not baking soda. As far as I'm aware, these are two different products so I'm hoping for some clarification from you. When "baking soda" is referenced, should I presume the product being referenced is actually "sodium bicarbonate"? Thank you for your willingness to help others.
