Moles, Heartburn, and Homemade ACV?

Posted by Kristy (Lansing, MI) on 09/09/2006

I have three questions for whoever might know the answers. 1. In recent years I've read that baking soda is dangerous to take for things like heartburn-and that it can actually kill people. Does mixing it with vinegar eliminate this danger-if it was a danger to begin with? 2. Regarding vinegar to get rid of moles: is this just for moles that are raised or can it be used on the flat ones, too? And does it get rid of whatever is under the skin that causes them in the first place? 3. And, finally, in researching vinegar on the web, I found where someone said that if you mix a little organic vinegar with the kind you get in the grocery store, that a brand like Heinz will revert back to organic in a couple of months. Given the fact that organic vinegar is fairly expensive, I have to ask if it's true. Since we go through about a cup a day for four people, it would be helpful if this could be done. (I found a second posting on this subject that said to leave it UNCOVERED for the two months, which I have a problem with because I don't think dust helps cure anything! Thanks for any help! This website is very helpful!

Dear Kristy: No one has as yet died from baking soda poisoning. It there were you can also die from eating bread, since bread uses baking soda too. Baking soda has always been commercially used to treat heartburn for at least one hundred years. Of course you can kill people with baking soda by giving too much, like giving someone too much water. Yes people also can get killed from drinking too much water. You take everything in moderation is best.

Restless leg syndrome lessens from the metal detoxification effect of the acetate compound. It would have worked better if you add citric acid also.

Does mixing it with vinegar eliminate this danger-if it was a danger to begin with?

The danger is nonexistent. Mixing with vinegar simply helps the body detoxify the toxin tht may also cause the heartburn by allowing better liver function.

2. Regarding vinegar to get rid of moles: is this just for moles that are raised or can it be used on the flat ones, too? And does it get rid of whatever is under the skin that causes them in the first place?

Getting rid of moles using vinegar can do that too, regardless of what they look like. But vinegar might be a bit weak. Add hydrogen peroxide a couple of drops to the moles too or some aspirin on the area. This could kill the moles faster.

3. And, finally, in researching vinegar on the web, I found where someone said that if you mix a little organic vinegar with the kind you get in the grocery store, that a brand like Heinze will revert back to organic in a couple of months.

If you want your Hienz vinegar to be organic, just buy an apple and put the Heinz vinegar in a blender. Voila, organic vinegar. Make just the amount you consume and no more. They are just as close.

Books written 100 years ago have a lot of useful information. Even the Encyclopedia Britannica 1911 edition is more useful than today's edition. For some reason our educational process is now nothing but theories and descriptions. So we are just going back to the future!
