Question on Citric Acid and Baking Soda
Hello Ted, I tried citric acid and baking soda for about a week before I stopped because I felt weaker and exhausted. But I am not sure if they are related or just a coincidence. I am forty years old and feeling mostly tired for about 15 years. I did master cleanse ( maple & lemonade fast) for 10 days in 2001. After the fast my health deteriorated and I never recovered. I started to have leg pains at night since. I am taking multi-vit/mineral ( NSI Synergy Basic Multi-Vitamin), it is helping a little. But if I don't take them for about a week, I feel so much worse, feeling drained during the day, unable to sleep at night. Recently I started to have problems with my arms too. Two three hours after I sleep, I wake up because of heavy dull feeling /pain in my legs and arms, sometmes feel as if my blood gets thicker and expands and hardly move thru the veins. I ve seen several doctors with no help. Two years ago I used ACV and felt worse after a week and stopped it. This time after reading the ph balance issue on Earth Clinic website, I tried baking soda and citric acid hoping it would help, it helped first, I slept better for about a week and started to think it was working, but did not last long. My blood pressure is normal (low side). I don't know what is causing all these, is it poor circulation or acidity or electrolyte imbalance? I tried so many things to improve my health and nothing worked. I must be doing it wrong. I appreciate your suggestions. Thanks.
