Baking Soda Clarification

Posted by Margaret (Yorkshire, UK) on 10/21/2006

organic apple cider vinegar with water cured my sore throat, catarrh ...general improvements and feelings of wellness. I have not used baking soda because not sure which to use. Do you mean "baking powder" which contains rice flour, sodium diphosphate, and sodium hydrogen carbonate. or plain "bicarbonate of soda". Just one possible side effect of ACV. I have had sort of muscle aches in the calves - could it be relevant. Many thanks for your great website of information.

The muscle aches and pain is due to lack of bicarbonates and the need for vitamin B complex and some magnesium chloride or magnesium citrate.
