Will It Help Dry Mouth?

Posted by Daniel (Chicago) on 12/26/2006

Hi Ted, I have a question for you since you appear to be very knowledgeable about health issues in general. I've just started taking your remedy with of ACV with baking soda. I suffer from dryness - I have dry mouth, lips, eyes, ears, skin, nose etc and have never been able to find out what the cause was. It's not syrogen's (have been tested) and I have a humidifier and it does no good. I drink a lot of water but it seems that I still get dehydrated very easily. The only thing that helped a lot was lemon water but I had to stop that because it was tearing the enamel off my teeth. Do you think the APV will help me with this problem?

Dear Daniel: One whole lemon and ADD baking soda until no more fizz. Then add just 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda more. Add water to 1/2 glass. The solution is alkaline and will not effect the teeth enamel since the solution will usually be above pH of 7 and closer to 8 because of the 1/4 teaspoon extra added.. Enamel erosion is due to lemon with pH below 5 and causes dissolving. Alkaline drinks such as lemon and baking soda will cause the capillaries to expand and the drying will go away. Your body seems to be quite acid and as often constipation can occur in such a condition.
