Baking Soda, also known as Sodium Bicarbonate or Bicardbonate of
Soda, is derived from a natural occurring mineral, and is one of the
safest and most versatile substances around. It is primarily used in
cooking (baking) where it reacts with other components to release
carbon dioxide, that helps dough “rise”.
However, few people realize that baking soda also has potent
medicinal properties and has been used as a therapeutic agent for a
very long time. Taken internally, it helps maintain the pH balance
in your bloodstream. This is likely the basic premise behind its
recommended uses against both colds and influenza symptoms, and even

is the time honored method to ‘speed up’ the return of the
body’s bicarbonate levels to normal. Bicarbonate is inorganic,
very alkaline and like other mineral type substances, supports
an extensive list of biological functions.
Sodium bicarbonate happens to be one of our most useful
medicines because bicarbonate physiology is fundamental to life
Winning the War on Cancer
by Dr. Mark
Tullio Simoncini, an Italian
oncologist (cancer specialist), has been able to show that 99
percent of breast and bladder cancer can heal in just six days,
entirely without the use of surgery, chemo or radiation, using just
a local infiltration device (such as a catheter) to deliver the
sodium bicarbonate directly to the infected area!
He claims that cancer is
caused by a fungus.
“Based on years of
scientific and clinical research, at the centre of every cancer
tumor is a common fungus, Candida albicans. The good news is
that it can be treated with a powerful antifungal agent that’s
inexpensive and readily available.”
Baking Soda as an
All-Natural Cold Remedy
In a booklet published in 1924 titled, “Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
Medical Uses,” Dr.
Volney S. Cheney states:
“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
Recommended dosages from
the Arm & Hammer Company for colds and influenza back in 1925 were:
Day 1 - Take six
doses of ˝ teaspoon of baking soda in glass of cool water,
at about two hour intervals
Day 2 - Take
four doses of ˝ teaspoon of baking soda in glass of cool
water, at the same intervals
Day 3 - Take two
doses of ˝ teaspoon of baking soda in glass of cool water
morning and evening
˝ teaspoon in glass of cool water each morning until cold
symptoms are gone
A paste made
from sodium bicarbonate and a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution can be
used as an alternative to commercial non-fluoride toothpastes. You
can also add few drops of essentail oils like peppermint or
wintergreen to help freshen your breath.
Sodium bicarbonate in combination with other ingredients can be used
to make a dry or wet deodorant. Sodium bicarbonate is a common
ingredient in alternative and natural brands of toothpaste and
It can also be used as a
treatment for dandruff due to its anti-fungal properties.
