Baking Soda Remedy for the Flu

One of the most powerful and safe medicines available in the world today is good, old fashioned Baking Soda! Yes, the kind you use to deodorize your fridge. Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate is used in Emergency rooms and intensive care units in a solution form that is used intra-venously to rescue severely ill patients. It is so safe and so effective that the exact right dose is not often and issue - it just works - and an over-dose is just about impossible. The following article is from the Mercola website and includes information from the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918-19 and the use of 'baking soda' to prevent and treat swine flu. I personally don't have any experience with it, but I know it is safe and can't do any harm. It wouldn't be the first time that the solution we are looking for is right under our noses.
Enjoy. Learn. Share.










Baking Soda: A Remedy for Swine Flu?

December 15 2009 In today’s modern world of medicine the FDA just will not let companies that sell products make medical claims about them unless they have been tested at great expense, and approved as a drug. But this was not always the case.
In a 1924 booklet published by the Arm & Hammer Soda Company, the company starts off saying, “The proven value of Arm & Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda as a therapeutic agent is further evinced by the following evidence of a prominent physician named Dr. Volney S. Cheney, in a letter to the Church & Dwight Company:
“In 1918 and 1919 while fighting the ‘Flu’ with the U. S. Public Health Service it was brought to my attention that rarely any one 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.”
Recommended dosages from the Arm and Hammer Company for colds and influenza back in 1925 were:
During the first day take six doses of half teaspoonful of Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of cool water, at about two hour intervals
During the second day take four doses of half teaspoonful of Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of cool water, at the same intervals
During the third day take two doses of half teaspoonful of Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of cool water morning and evening, and thereafter half teaspoonful in glass of cool water each morning until cold is cured.

This method has worked wonderfully for myself and my two adult children. I haven't had the flu for 5 years and colds go away in one day. I have always been prone to strep.

I recommend super alkalizing at the first sign of a sore throat or runny nose.

If you use baking soda, please find an aluminium free variety. Arm & Hammer has aluminium. ;)

To Rosco1776: Baking Soda does not contain aluminum - That is a HOAX! Well documented and researched. Now, baking powder might! But NOT Baking Soda - Even Arm & Hammer Baking Soda...NO Aluminum!!!
