Help Me for Burning Mouth

Posted by Sandra on 11/13/2006

Dear Ted..... i have been on a lot of antibiotics for various conditions.... my tongue started burning, and my Dr. gave me nysatin...which I used and my tongue was still raw and burning. It has been 3 months now..... and my tongue is sore to even eat at times. Each Dr. Ive seen has a different opinion, allergies, acid reflux, vitamin deficiency. I did have 2 vitamin B shots and when tests were taken my vitamin b level was ok. I do have SO much gas all the time...even in my throat. Ive even tried accupuncture. Nothing has helped. Please help me. thank you

Dear Sandra: Just take baking soda 1/4 teaspoon twice a day to 1/2 glass of water, once in morning and once in evening and monitor your urinary pH until it becomes 6.5-7.0. You need to take more until it becomes between 6-7. After you take baking soda within 30 minutes you should get that urinary pH by 6-7. To make sure it won't cause worse acid tongue, just add a pinch of potassium bicarbonate if you can.

Acid reflux can be dealt with by taking 2 tablespoon of Apple Cider vinegar plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda also. If you can manage to raise your urinary pH for about 2 weeks, the acid tongue should be entirely gone. There will be ups and downs when you take this, so to prevent this you might take the baking soda for 5 days and off 2 days.

Should you still have difficulty raising the urinary pH to normal levels try another formula such as 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid twice a day. It seems to be more effective than the simpler formula in many cases, but some people have problems getting the citric acid. In which case another formula is possible, which is one whole lime/lemon (quite large I must admit) so some will prefer 1/2 lime/lemon and add baking soda until the fizz stops and add water to 1/2 glass of water. You can take it twice a day. It important that at least for me to use the one whole lemon or lime in practice as the vitamin C are still fresh and not oxidized and this is why I prefer one whole lemon, the ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) will cause the body to be in optimum values much quicker. Lemon especially lime with the baking soda, in theory should worked as good as many healing springs in their pH, buffering and ORP values and if more people do this, many will find the healing properties for many illness. It has potassium, phosphorous, and other minerals that the body needs in fairly good proportions enough for the body to normalize most parameters.
