Should I Use It with Apple Cider Vinegar?

Thanks a lot Ted for helping people cure lots of ailments w/ ACV n baking soda. I decided to give this a try. I also assumed my body was already acidic b/c I suffer from unexplained bloating and slightly swellingon my feet. I started off last night by taking 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda in an 8oz. cup of water. I woke up this morning very tired and I've aches on my back!!! What could be causing this and what should I do? Should I start using ACV or should I wait to take it after 2weeks??? My urine was colorless so I assumed it was close to PH of 7. I'll appreciate ur advice..

In case the backaches, it means the body has an electrolyte imbalances, usually of low magnesium. In that case, try another remedy, sea salt. In that remedy, I would try 1/4 teaspoon of SEA SALT in one liter of water and use this as a drinking water for a week to help correct the some micro and macro mineral imbalances, usually often it is the lack of magnesium and too much calcium in the body. Once corrected, it appears the lemon and baking soda formula will work better as it removes excess calcium which causes the back problems. Also taking magesium citrate supplements 250 mg/day (no calcium) for 5 days out of a week is what I would take for about a month. Vitamin B complex is what I would likely to take for 2 days out of a week. The back pain should go away before the week is out..
