The side effects you have to worry about taking too much sodium bicarbonate is a slightly loose stool. However, it is actually taken not to cause a diarrhea, but to prevent constipation.

Let me tell you the theory of how a kidney stone is formed. Most people's kidneys stones are formed by calcium oxalate. It is as a result of your intestines LACK OF BICARBONATES, necessary to neutralized the oxalic acid you eat from foods. Therefore oxalic acid enters the blood stream and attacks calcium in your body to from calcium oxalate. Calcium oxalate is a precipitate and forms stones and will accumulate in your kidney CAUSING kidney stones. So if you take plenty of sodium bicarbonate with each an every meal, the oxalic acid will react with sodium bicarbonate to form sodium oxalate and will not be absorbed into your blood stream but will be safely excreted normally into the stool.The other issue you have to worry about of the formation of kidney stones are caused by accumulation of insoluble fats, which is rather soft stones but they can cause gallstone instead. In this case the body cannot utilized the fats properly. A remarkably simple solution I discovered is to take only 1 teaspoon of granulated powdered lecithin (only) mixed with food every day.

So taking sodium bicarbonate and lecithin will resolve a lot of health issues relating to stones, kidney stones or gallbladder stones.
