Great idea. Mess around with your blood pH level. Great way to kill yourself.
My grandmother used to take 1 Tablespoon of baking soda every day to help her upset stomach. She did this untill she died from anastisia in a
hospital due to a broken hip at the age of 83 just 2 years ago. People from days gone by did this on a regular basis. I'm quite sure if it was that
harmful, it wouldnt be used in such over the counter meds like alchaselzer....
Should listen to those old people.. They know what they're talking about.
There was another remedy other than homeade cough syrup she called "Sof-a-tee-dauh" I have no idea how to spell it, but thats how it was pronounced.
I lived in a world of home remedies by this old cajun grandmother, and allthough I do not consume any of those remedies today, I so very seldom get
ill, even when the person next to me is "sick as a dog", I always come away with nothing at all. Strange.... There was also something called "mamou
seeds" that came from a plant she grew in her front yard. Cool stuff. Best cold and flu remedy I've ever taken. Worked in 2 days or less with no
problems when it was made into a tea. Of course, superstition was invloved... "You gotta make the tea with an odd number of seeds".
Got to love those old people. I'm still alive and kicking, and healthy to boot, with one hell of a metabalism. Now.. If I can only fix that so I
could gain a bit more weight!!!
