Drinking baking soda water can balance the body’s pH level, and help to combat uric acid formation, gout, infection, indigestion, arthritis, heartburn and even Cancer. It promotes a more alkaline PH balance in the body (alkalinity is the reverse of acidity).
When our blood gets to be more acid or alkaline, we will probably get sick. Most of the microorganisms that cause diseases cannot live in alkaline conditions. If we eat more alkaline foods than required, we have a reserve that is stored in our blood plasma, and this reserve is used to maintain our blood’s PH balance; if the acidic levels in our blood are not balanced, our body becomes vulnerable to lots of things. Bacteria loves to grow in acidic environments. Acidity is necessary for effective digestion of food, but an overall alkaline PH in your body is considered healthier. You can overcome most infections by drinking baking soda water daily until the infection disappears.
