Not a Neutral Solution?

Posted by Scott (NY) on 10/29/2006

Hi: I have what may be a silly question: You say to take ACV and Baking Soda. Isn't AVC an acid and Baking Soda a base? Wouldn't combining them just produce a neutral solution? Please let me know. Thanks.

Scott: Yes. The solution of 2 tablespoon of ACV and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda equals exactly the pH of 7. People whose body are too acid won't have problems if the solution is too acid. People whose body are too alkaline won't have problems if the solution is too alkaline. The dividing world is pH of 7. This is the ideal acid, with malates and bicarbonates that is responsible for your health. Nature is about balance. Your pH of blood goes off by 0.5 and you will die near instantaneous death.

I remember one famous Thai singer who got sick and tired of slow saline IV solution that she turned up the valve to quickly finished the draining. Within 30 minutes she died of acidosis. The saline solution they used in hospital was a bit more acidic then her blood by only pH -0.30
