Sodium bicarbonate, or commonly known as baking soda, is a chemical compound that has a slightly salty taste and an alkaline pH value. It can be found as fine powder or solid crystals. It was used since ancient Egypt as a paint. However, the first factory for production of baking soda was established in 1846 in New York.
Here are several of its uses:
- It alkalizes the body
- Treats splinters
- Mix it with water to soothe the allergic reactions due to poison ivy/sumac
- Mix it with water to create a powerful antacid
- It slows down the progression of kidney failure
Sodium bicarbonate is vital for our health, and it is produced by the pancreas and kidneys. In case its production is reduced, acid starts to accumulate and leads to cellular deterioration. The body needs o eliminate the buildup of acid and increase the intake of water, oxygen, and nutrients.
Yet, baking soda can be of great help here. In the case of a kidney disease, dissolve half a teaspoon of baking soda under the tongue. The next day, mix half a teaspoon of baking soda with 1/2 teaspoon of salt into 1.5 liters of water, and start drinking this remedy for several days.
Apparently, people suffering from a kidney disease have reduced bicarbonate levels, which is a medical condition known as metabolic acidosis. Dr. Thomas P. Kennedy explains:
“SUBSTITUTING A SODIUM BICARBONATE SOLUTION FOR SALINE INFUSION PRIOR TO ADMINISTRATION OF RADIOCONTRAST MATERIAL SEEMS TO REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF NEPHROPATHY.”
There are 3 million individuals experience the ill effects of ceaseless kidney malady in the United Kingdom just, and around 37,800 of them require renal substitution treatment, The yearly cost for the therapeutic care is $45,165 (£30,000). Analysts at the Whitechapel healing facility in Royal London directed an examination which was the primary controlled test in a clinical setting, and found that sodium bicarbonate can fundamentally back off the movement of the kidney infection.
The investigation included 134 test patients with cutting edge kidney sickness and metabolic acidosis, and specialists gave a tablet made of a little measure of sodium bicarbonate every day to arbitrarily chose little gathering.
A while later, they found that those members were less inclined to require dialysis and the capacity of their kidneys declined at a rate that is normal with ordinary maturing.
Also, they had a 2/3 slower decrease of wellbeing than the untreated gathering. Likewise, just 9% of them encountered a quick movement of kidney sickness, contrasted with the 45% of the untreated gathering.
Professor Magdi Yaqoob commented:
‘THIS STUDY SHOWS BAKING SODA CAN BE USEFUL FOR PEOPLE WITH KIDNEY FAILURE. THAT IS, AS LONG AS THE DOSE IS REGULATED AND UNDER SUPERVISION. WHAT HAPPENS IS THE INFLAMMATION OF KIDNEY IS PREVENTED BY BAKING SODA BECAUSE A CHEMICAL REACTION TAKES PLACE LIMITING AMMONIA PRODUCTION IN THE KIDNEY.’
‘BAKING SODA IS NOT CLASSED AS A DRUG SO THIS STUDY HAS NEVER BEEN TRIED BEFORE. THIS CHEAP AND SIMPLE STRATEGY ALSO IMPROVES PATIENTS’ NUTRITIONAL WELL-BEING AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE AND OF COURSE A CLINICAL OUTCOME THAT CAN REMOVE THE NEED FOR DIALYSIS.’
