Bloating and Swelling

Posted by ER

Thanks for the response, Ted. You are correct. I have been using the baking soda and citric acid. It has reduced my reflux to 0. I will modify my diet to exclude the cheese and sugar altogether. Do you mean no hamburger or no cheese on the hamburger? Also, what can be done for bloating and swelling? My stomach really gets big and my right side is swollen which is the side where the raised bumps are located. What do you know about morgellons? How contagious is it?

The problem is more the white bread (whole wheat bread is better but not perfect, brown rice is actually better than whole wheat and ordinary white rice is as good as whole wheat, but still the bromine is suspected in bread), oily (potato chips and french fries- a dangerous one because of the cancer causing acrylamide from high temperature cooking) and fatty foods, especially cheese, milk, and other dairy products. Increasing the portion of complex carbohydrates may reduce the bloating as oily foods block hormonal functions that controls the body's delicate balance of fluids and hence oily food and fatty foods such as cheese may lead to bloating. That has always been the feedback, but most antibiotics and doctors med seem to cause the same problem too.

It is fairly contagious and sometimes the entire family has it. More scientific info or Morgellon's is here:

So far I have had good results with just concentrating on the borax, baking soda, and sometimes the addition sea salt and chlorella. The problem about this is the baking soda should always be maintained for an optimum health, at the very least. A sodium citrate (baking soda and citric acid) is a much more effective form for the body to utilize, since a citrate with presence of carbon dioxide is converted to bicarbonate and hence citrate's effect on alkalinity is much more longer, while the magnesium, potassium, acetate and malate form are more effective on the saliva pH and intracellular fluids as opposed to extracellular.

Luckily citrates is effective for BOTH intracellular and extracellular fluids, but those citrates should ideally be a sodium citrate, potassium citrate and magnesium citrate, but the potassium form is needed in much less amounts than the sodium one.
