Follow Up On Last Post Regarding Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Uses

As a follow up on my last post regarding spinal stenosis, here is some addition info on the apparent safety and effectiveness of Arm & Hammer baking soda.

It is a very useful addition to your diet to help alkalize your PH and possibly prevent colds, flu etc. As mentioned in my last post and several other posts on my BLOG on the evils of carbonated colas whether diet or not, drinking diet or regular coke, pepsi and other highly advertised drinks can affect the PH of your interstitial fluid and set your system up for ailments of all kinds.

See the following link from Dr. Mercola as a follow up to the post on Stenosis:

The mixing of a teaspoon of baking SODA in water along with a taplespoon of Braggs or other NATURAL  apple cider vinegar with the MOTHER in it 2X a day can go a long way to help bring your PH to slightly alkaline (vs.) acid.

The link above also mentions colds, and flu and a host of other remedies attached to baking soda.

AS in all things 'MODERATION IS THE KEY". Please do not think if a little is good for you, then a LOT is even better. A teaspoon of Arm & Hammer Baking soda along with a tablespoon of natural Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar two or three times a day should bring results.

Baking Soda May Help Fight Colds and the Flu

Some people believe that when taken internally, baking soda can help maintain the pH balance in your bloodstream. This is likely the basic premise behind its recommended uses against both colds and influenza symptoms. In their booklet "Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Medical Uses," published in 1924, Dr. Volney S. Cheney recounts his clinical successes with sodium bicarbonate in treating cold and flu:2
"In 1918 and 1919 while fighting the 'flu' with the U. S. Public Health Service it was brought to my attention that rarely anyone who had been thoroughly alkalinized with bicarbonate of soda contracted the disease, and those who did contract it, if alkalinized early, would invariably have mild attacks.
I have since that time treated all cases of 'cold,' influenza and LaGripe by first giving generous doses of bicarbonate of soda, and in many, many instances within 36 hours the symptoms would have entirely abated.
Further, within my own household, before Woman's Clubs and Parent-Teachers' Associations, I have advocated the use of bicarbonate of soda as a preventive for 'colds,' with the result that now many reports are coming in stating that those who took 'soda' were not affected, while nearly everyone around them had the 'flu.'
Not too certain though about how valid the pH optimizing is as to baking soda's mechanism of action, as clinically I have frequently used diluted hydrochloric acid intravenously to also help people nearly instantly recover from acute infections. Obviously this is pushing the pH in the opposite direction, yet both appear to work, suggesting that the mode of action may be other than pH mediated.
The administration is easy enough, and is relatively harmless even if you should not experience relief from your cold symptoms. Simply dissolve the recommended amount of baking soda in a glass of cold water and drink it. Recommended dosages from the Arm & Hammer Company for colds and influenza back in 1925 were:
  • Day 1 -- Take six doses of ½ teaspoon of baking soda in glass of cool water, at about two-hour intervals
  • Day 2 -- Take four doses of ½ teaspoon of baking soda in glass of cool water, at the same intervals
  • Day 3 -- Take two doses of ½ teaspoon of baking soda in glass of cool water morning and evening, and thereafter ½ teaspoon in glass of cool water each morning until cold symptoms are gone

God Bless,
