I have seen it recommended to keep one well as baking soda and water would make one's system more alkaline.
Bicarbonate of soda aka Baking soda… Something most folks never think about but really should.
I’ve always found the following medicinal use sort of funny since I stumbled across it researching something long ago. The single largest consumer of bicarbonate of soda in the US… The large feedlots in the Midwest for finishing beef cattle.
Nature designed cows to eat grass. The big feed lots give cattle grains so they will put on a lot of weight quickly. This also gives the cows indigestion.
They are given bicarbonate of soda in their feed to treat their indigestion!
I've seen photos, they actually bring in baking soda by the train load... In a shtf situation... now you know where to go looking for baking soda.
We've used it on horses, cows and goats. We just kept a feeder full and they'd eat what they wanted.
How does a person know if your body is acid or alkaline? I know people who take a spoon of apple cider vinegar every day for a similar purpose. It is supposed to be good for our body chemistry as well. How to take baking soda? Stir a spoonful in a glass of water and drink it?
I love the bags of baking soda you can buy at Costco. Unlike the boxes you can purchase at the store, the plastic keeps them fresher and less likely to absorb moisture. I do like to put a box of baking soda in the refrigerator and change it out every few months or so.
Baking soda is one item that the typical person cannot produce. It is something we need to stock. How much depends on how much of it you use. I think in a SHTF situation, you could easily use a lot of it.
You can make sodium bicarbonate using ammonia, carbon dioxide and salt. Switch the carbon dioxide with carbonated water (carbolic acid) and add it to the salt and ammonia solution and it precipitates sodium bicarbonate. You can heat it to about 120F to aid in the process. The liquids left are not readily usable and considered corrosive pollutants.
I drank a glass of water with spoon full of baking soda for heart burn , reflux, indigestion.
Nothing works as fast or as good.
I've used it for reflux also. As a kid we used it if we ran out of toothpaste.
I believe they make urine test strips for that.
I have been under the impression that it couldn't be, so I really appreciate knowing this.
Most of the baking soda in the world is just mined and purified today but they used to make it.
I also take it for heartburn. The only difference is I eat it straight out of the box with a spoon then chase it down with water. My Grandpa did it that way and it seems to work a little faster on acid reflux burn.
