Baking soda is one of the most common ingredients in every household. You probably know what it looks like – it’s a white powder that is commonly used for rising dough but can also be used for cleaning and many beauty uses. Baking soda is a great mild exfoliator for the skin which can keep it healthy and alkaline and resolve a number of skin problems.
Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate as it’s also known, is a natural compound released in small bits by our kidneys in order to fight acids in the body. By alkalizing your body, the powder can prevent a variety of infections and ailments and treat numerous conditions.
Here’s how to use baking soda to treat various health problems:
- Rub your teeth with a bit of baking soda to whiten them naturally and improve your oral health;
- Gargle a mixture of baking soda and water to prevent bad breath;
- Make a paste of water and baking soda and rub it on your nails to keep fungi off;
- The same paste can exfoliate your face and prevent a number of skin problems;
- Drink a glass of water and baking soda to reduce your joint and muscle pain;
- Pour water in a bigger bowl, add some baking soda and a few drops of peppermint oil, then soak your feet in the mixture to relieve various infections;

How To Keep Your Body Alkaline
If you want to stay free of different ailments including cancer, you need to keep your body alkaline. Baking soda can help you achieve this. It is an alkaline substance that can neutralize acids and treat problems such as heartburn and acid reflux. Just put less than a teaspoon of it in a glass of water and drink the mixture to alter your acidic pH. You can add some lemon juice (wait for the fizz to pass) in the same glass of water for even better results.
Baking Soda vs. Cancer
According to recent studies, baking soda has the power to beat cancer. Dr. Tulio Simonchini is an Italian doctor who has managed to help many of his patients defeat the disease with the help of the powder. He says that cancer is a fungus which can be destroyed with the help of the antifungal properties of baking soda.
To defeat cancer, you need to mix baking soda with some honey. As cancer cells feed on sugar, the honey will allow the powder to enter them and destroy them from within. This powerful mixture has helped many people defeat various types of cancer, although your doctor won’t admit it.
Baking soda is great for everyone except for children under the age of 5 and pregnant women. You should also never take it on its own – make sure to dilute it with a bit of water first. We suggest consulting your doctor before starting any treatment with baking soda or any natural treatment.
