Over acidity, which is highly common today, is a dangerous condition that contributes to a host of serious health conditions, yet doctors refuse to test pH levels (much better and less expensive to do at home) and resist prescribing sodium bicarbonate, which is simple baking soda, to address this common condition. An acidic internal environment is the perfect place for disease to thrive and that includes cancer. Normal pH environments resists disease and cancer formation. Sodium bicarbonate is the time-honored method to ‘speed up’ the return of the body’s bicarbonate levels to normal. Sodium bicarbonate is a strong medicinal, one of the strongest; it will drive pH levels up quickly, as well as oxygen, throughout most of the tissues, and that is why it is so effective.
Acidosis is extremely common in our society mostly due to the American diet and lifestyle. Although eggs, dairy and meats, are acidic, the main problem is with processed foods. These include white flour, sugar, coffee and soda, which create an acidic environment. Breathing too fast also causes acidity as does pharmaceutical drugs, artificial sweeteners, radiation exposure (medical tests) and exposure to all the chemicals and pesticides and even the polluted air we breathe and water we drink.
When we become acidic, the body steals minerals such as sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium from the bones and organs to neutralize the acid. This puts stress on the body and, unfortunately, can go unnoticed for many years especially because doctors prescribe further acid forming drugs to cover up the symptoms of acidity.
When our pH becomes acidic, we commonly face fatigue, infections, obesity, depression, dry skin, ulcers, diabetes, immune deficiency, hormone issues, premature aging, weak bones, yeast, slow digestion, bladder conditions, kidney problems, cardiovascular damage and joint pain all due to lactic acid buildup. British scientists at the Royal London Hospital shows that sodium bicarbonate can dramatically slow the progress of chronic kidney disease.
Sodium bicarbonate is the best, quickest and safest way of assisting your body in balancing pH levels, thereby extending life by reducing the formation of serious diseases. It is also one of the best medicines (foods) for treating cancer.
