Dear Ted,thank-you for getting back to me so quickly. I will try the apple cider vinegar remedy but there are a few things that I want to clarify first. I will start drinking 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed in 1/2 glass of bottled water ( which I always drink) twice daily for 7 days out of the week along with 1/8 teaspoon of borax (please explain what chemical that is and is boric acid the same thing if not where can I purchase borax) mixed in 1/2 lt of bottled water for 5 days a week. I should buy a electronic pocke ph meter to monitor the urinary PH to around 7? You said that a person with Lupus has the urinary PH to about 5.5, how many days do you think of drinking the remedy, I can expect some change in the urinary PH ? Once the urinary PH starts to increase, is 7.5 the highest I should let it go ? How long after the urinary PH is up to 7, would I start to see some improvements in my face ? How many days maximum should I drink this remedy ? I went to a health food store and I purchased brown rice pastas, sprouted whole grain breads . Hopefully this will not add to my problems. I am also starting to take a nutri multi vitamin featuring the benifits of vitamin D which also have the benifits of all the other important vitamins and minerals. It also has 2 mg of boron (borax) , is that the same thing? for every 15 ml tablespoon. the nutritionist told me to take 2 tablespoons daily but the instructions said to take only 1, what do you think ? If this already has boron or borax and I will be getting 4 mg daily, should I still be taking the 1/8 teaspoon mixed with the 1/2 lt of water for 5 days out of the week while I am drinking the apple cider vinegar remedy? I will also be starting to take a hi potency B complex capsule and the Nutritionist told me to take 1 daily but you said maybe only 1 capsule 3 or 4 days out of the week? The nutricionist also told me that 2 sael-oil capsules daily wasn't sufficient and I should take at least 8 daily for the first week and then after 6 daily She said that seal-oil capsules were't the best source of omega 3 , and 2 wasn't enough since I didn't eat much fish and my skin needed the oils. Sorry to burden you with all these questions but you seem to be the light at the end ofa long dark tunnel. God Bless and thank-you so much.

Borax is chemically different from boric acid. It is a lot easier to deal with borax as boric acid is an acid form and I prefer not to use boric acid. The dose were used and tested is borax that has worked the best. Boric acid has never been tried and is not used because we want to get the body to be more alkaline, not more acid.

I should buy a electronic pocke ph meter to monitor the urinary PH to around 7?

Most pH paper seems to be off on its reading in the alkaline side, and a pocket pH meter is more accurate. Increase or decrease dose in achieving is needed to get near 7.

You said that a person with Lupus has the urinary PH to about 5.5, how many days do you think of drinking the remedy, I can expect some change in the urinary PH ?
It takes about a week or two to notice improvement that we can go outside with minor cosmetic makeup for cover. A pH change will be noticed within 1 hour after taking it.

Once the urinary PH starts to increase, is 7.5 the highest I should let it go ? How long after the urinary PH is up to 7, would I start to see some improvements in my face ? How many days maximum should I drink this remedy ?

The highest urinary pH can only be obtained with a sodium and potassium citrate, 1/4 teaspoon each. It's difficult to get beyond 7 with just baking soda. Will answer the other questions later in the day.
