Many health benefits
When my husband was diagnosed with cancer we were told that bicarbonate of soda was something we should investigate and get into the habit of using daily.
We wanted to try every possible avenue in order to keep him healthy while he underwent the invasive chemotherapy and other life saving operations.
In fact, it really helped with a myriad of other ailments too
Not only is it inexpensive, but the benefits are many.
Each morning it was easy to brush our teeth with bicarb and we were surprised to learn that it helped to remove the plaque on teeth and was also known to help in removing discolouration due to the alkaline power it possessed.
Bicarb of soda has many properties and is known to be a great alkalising agent.
Cancer does not like an alkaline environment
In its natural form, baking soda is known as Nahcolite that is a part of the natural mineral Natron.
Natron contains large amounts of sodium bicarbonate, which has been used for many years in households.
It was believed that the Egyptians used Natron as a soap for it’s cleansing properties.
It was only later that people started manufacturing and selling the compound we know as bicarb of soda or baking soda.
Great for balancing the body’s PH levels
It is one of the best natural remedies for balancing the body’s pH level and for improving overall health.
It posesses an alkaline substance that reduces the acid levels in the body, thereby reducing the effect of acid and inflammation.
It is a great barrier against urinary tract infections too, and is also known to have many antiseptic properties and is known to be great for acne or used as a skin exfoliator due to having a mildly abrasive nature.
Not only is it known to remove dead skin cells but it allows new cell production so gives a glow to the skin.
It is relatively inexpensive too and very easy to decant and keep in a small covered jar in the bathroom for regular use.
So what’s not to like?
