Easy Mixture Method?

Posted by C (Kentucky) on 12/10/2007

I am a thirty year old female who has had a complete hysterectomy. Ever since, I have had to urinate very frequently. I get up several times a night and it is becoming a nuisance to say the very least. When the urge strikes I have to go immediately. I've never wet myself or anything like that. I just want to know how to keep from feeling like I always have to go to the restroom and getting up several times a night without going on a prescription medicine.

This was done in the past, until someone took too much baking soda and I realized that the pH was near 8 using this method. The reason is simple: the baking soda's pH is about 8 and adding baking soda will reach this equilibrium, not the 7.

The problems is that the bubbles will continually form as you add more and more baking soda beyond the pH of 7 up to near 8 pH. Because of this problem I decided to make a 2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar with 1/4 teaspoon baking soda standard, where pH is around 7, if not that well reacted, but in a more serious case of acid reflux a remedy can be modified to 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, in 1/2 glass of water, since more alkalinity was needed, but its pH were about 7. However, it is best to used a tablespoon and teaspoon measure, whenever or for those who simply don't have a pocket pH meter handy, which in most cases do not.
