Baking soda... the alkaline booster!

Alkalinity. It's kinda a big deal.  When you're working on helping your body heal, you'll find all sorts of information about alkalinity and how the more alkaline your body is, the better chance it has at healing.  You'll see article upon article about how cancer thrives in an acidic environment, and how the standard american diet is very acidic.  It only makes sense then to change up your foods, the source of energy for your body, to a more alkaline diet.

The most easy way to do this is to eat more green, leafy veggies.  There's a whole lot of information online about the alkaline diet and what foods to eat and avoid, so I won't go into too much detail on that.  What I will touch on is something I've found to be measurably important, and an easy way to boost your alkalinity.

Baking soda. AKA sodium bicarbonate.

Yep, the same thing you add to baked goods to get them fluffy. The thing you put in your refrigerator to soak up those stinky odors.  You probably have some in your pantry right now!

But wait!  Don't go eating it by the spoonful just yet.  First off, you want to make sure the baking soda you have is aluminum free.  It doesn't do any good to try to heal your body with something that could poison it at the same time.

You also don't want to overdo it, because too much alkalinity is a bad thing too. You don't want to take it too soon before or after a meal (wait 1-2 hours), so as not to disrupt the normal stomach acid needed for digestion. 

When I first looked into this, I knew it was a simple way to boost my Ph, and it wouldn't hurt to try it out for a bit.  At this time too, the Sweet's Syndrome sores were back with a vengeance on the palms of my hands and soles of my feet.  Needless to say, it was worth trying just to see.

Guess what?  After only 4 days (YES!! 4 days), the sores on my hands were healed and all that was left was slight discoloration from each spot there used to be a sore.  All I did was add 1/2 tsp of baking soda to a glass of water, and drank it before bedtime.  I did this so that it was far enough away from dinner that it wouldn't mess with the normal stomach acid needed to digest my food. 

This lead me to more research now.  If baking soda can alter the ph of the body to encourage healing, and it was clearly helping one of the rarest skin disorders, then what does this mean for things like MDS or other cancers?

Baking soda is almost like the magic bullet to jumpstart your body into full on healing mode.  Cancers can not grow in an alkaline state. Even malignant tumors are incredibly acidic, so it only makes sense to go to the opposite end of the spectrum if you want your body to heal.

An Italian oncologist, Dr. Simoncini, studied this protocol as a cancer treatment for years and even published a book about it titled: Cancer is a Fungus: A Revolution in Tumor Therapy.  Fungi and mold can not survive in an alkaline environment, and thus the baking soda works to raise the ph to the level that cancer can not survive.  If we delve deeper into whether cancer is truly a fungus, we open up a whole new world of discovery that could very well lead us all to a place of healing, and an end to cancer as we know it.

Before I jump ahead and go down that path; cancer as a fungus (I'll do a follow up article on this), I want to urge anyone struggling with MDS or Sweet's Syndrome linked to MDS or leukemia, to do some deeper research into baking soda and the benefits it can have on these ailments.  It's ability to detox is also another powerful benefit (even if you're going the conventional route with chemotherapy and/or radiation).  I'm living proof that altering the ph of the body, directly shows healing of Sweet's sores, and super fast at that!






I'm in California dreaming about aloe inside me ...

Ha! Adele anyone? Cheesy, I know, but on a serious note, do you even know how beneficial aloe is when taken internally and not just using externally?

Extremely beneficial!

I first set out on my research journey to find foods and supplements that will help my blood counts, and some of the top things I kept coming across were chlorophyll, chlorella, and aloe vera juice.

Being the german/irish girl I am, I'm no stranger to aloe vera gel (thanks to sunburns as a child), but I didn't know much about drinking aloe vera juice.  Since it was brought up on many natural healing sites, I thought "what the hell, let's try it!"

So off to Whole Foods I went in search of some organic aloe vera juice.  Now, I'll admit, when I first tried it, it's got a different/strange taste, that isn't entirely appealing (but that doesn't stop me when it comes to healing), so I do mix it with some organic orange juice or pomegranate juice.  Actually, my whole concoction for healing with this juice is typically 6-8 oz of aloe vera juice, some OJ, chlorophyll, liposomal vitamin c, liposomal glutathione and some pomegranate juice, all mixed together. (I'll share more on the liposomal vitamin c and glutathione in another blog post)

If you're unfamiliar (as I was originally) to the benefits of aloe vera juice, some of the top awesome healing properties it offers are:

  • immune system boost

  • reduce inflammation

  • cleanse the blood

  • packed with vitamins (C, E, B)

  • clears the skin

  • assists digestion

  • alkalizes your body

  • helps remove toxins

  • makes your intestines more "regular"

  • and more!

Overall, aloe vera juice is just another excellent addition to your healing arsenal.  I've gotten to where I enjoy my glass each day and it's part of my ritual.  

Just another one of our planet's natural healing plants.  Time to go plant some aloe so I can grow it myself!

Let me know if you've tried aloe vera juice and what you take it for.  What are your results?  Leave your answers in the comments below :)
