BTD Forums  /  The GenoType Diet  /  Baking Soda for Cell Detox
Posted by: Patrick H, Wednesday, December 15, 2010, 10:52pm
Hi all.

I feel strange asking this question. But my SWAMI recommends me to consume baking soda for Cellular Detoxification.

How are we to ingest this substance? Should we dissolve it in our water to drink? Should Hunters be careful with a potential state of harmful alkalosis?

Lots of uncommon questions, I know. But a lot of you know so much. I would love it if some of you could point me in the right direction.

Thanks a million.

:D

I do not have your SWAMI. But one can detox with baking soda by drinking it or soaking  in baking soda baths.

To drink:

I would dissolve a teaspoon in a glass of water and drink. You could repeat several times a day as you felt the need.

--------------------

In a warm bath I would dissolve a 1/2 cup of baking soda in the water and soak for a while in it. I would also add sea salt and epsom salts to the water, but one could use the baking soda alone.

Does your SWAMI give recomendations about the quantity of baking soda and how often to use it?

I'd suggest dissolving a teaspoon in about 8oz of water, using more or less water depending on how much baking soda you're told to use. Adding lemon or lime juice to the glass will probably improve the taste.

I constantly use it when baking my flax bread, adding all my sprouted flours

Be prepared for some fizzing as the lemon juice releases carbon dioxide from the baking soda.

Try it, it tastes just fine in water.  When I was kid my father used to have us drink baking soda in water to avoid catching colds.

A teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in a glass of water tastes like salt water.  I took it recently for acid indigestion because I was out of Tums, which I used to take every single day pre-BTD.  Baking soda works just as well.  It makes you belch afterward like soda or cola.  Then you feel better.  :)  Baking soda is a neutral in my SWAMI.  I'm glad to know I'm detoxing when I do use it.

This is the end result of me taking baking soda.  The initial reason was due to constant dry mouth as a result of taking a regular medication.  I have also just discovered it is great for helping to reduce bloating/gas, which I posted about recently.

I take 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (it will froth up) and 1/2 cup of water.  I take this twice a day and I have seen positive results from the word go.

be adding it to water and drinking it?  Or just try to bake with it?

My Swamiexp hasn't arrived yet so I can't help with what it says.  I do know that drinking a small amount of Baking Soda as above is very beneficial to O's.  It is working wonders on my bloated stomach!!!

I think it means neither of those.

If it is in a food list, the rating is for consuming it as a food. It does not apply to external uses such as bathing.

I presume your rating is in the condiments sections.  Items listed in this section are intended to be added to other foods in small amounts.

I would presume the listing meant that you would add a little baking soda to foods while cooking or baking.

Drinking a little baking soda in water will most likely do you no harm and is often helpful.

But the SWAMI listing of baking soda as a superfood, I would not take as prescription to mix baking soda in water and drink it any more than the other items listed on the condiments page:

Agave Syrup
Baking Soda
Barley Malt
Epazote
Honey
Lecithin
Maple Syrup
Mayonnaise, Tofu, Soy
Miso
Molasses
Molasses, Blackstrap
Mustard, Wheat-free, Vinegar-free
Roselle
Sea Salt
Stevia
Vegetable Glycerine
Yeast Extract Spread, Marmite
Yeast, Nutritional
...




I would say just be thankful that it is a supefood for you, since it makes baking so much easier. If it were an avoid you would have a lot more difficulty leavening things.

If you want to drink some or bath in it fine. But do not feel compelled to do so.

Your case is entirely different than Chloe since the text of your SWAMI gave you specific instructions to use baking soda for cellular detoxification.

Chloe's SWAMI only listed baking soda in the regular food rankings.  On the basis of her SWAMI there is no reason to emphasize baking soda over any other superfood listed in her SWAMI.

Portion Size: 1 teaspoon
Frequency: 0 to 1 serving as needed.
Although most condiments are used in only very small amounts, you should still choose them wisely.


why confused??
I also get baking soda as SF......and as you can see, small amount

It is getting up the courage to trust the SWAMI and have a small amount of baking soda as a superfood.  I can understand his nervousness as it doesn't seem natural, yet when you think about it you would eat baking soda pre BTD probably everyday and in many different foods.

I will be the first one to jump on line to let everyone know of any negative sideffects, but so far everythings fine.

My Nana used to drink baking (bicarb) soda in water for indigestion ;)
I believe it is also very good for urinary tract infections* as it keeps system alkaline... Certainly used to help me for both... *if you look on the box of a product called Ural, it is mostly bicarb & flavour ;)

I'm not Lola, but I hope this helps. The "berries" are sprouted, then dried and then ground. Taste test the sprouts to find when they are the sweetest.

Baking soda is part of a plan that produces a specific kind of genetic harmony, mine being cellular detoxification.

Recommendations include combining the soda with tea and red meat.

I'm finding this discussion really interesting.  Patrick have you tried the baking soda on it's own or with the lemon and water yet?  If so have you noticed any difference?
Posted by: Andrea AWsec, Tuesday, December 28, 2010, 1:03pm; Reply: 30
Ok so in your example it would be Caribou with any (one) of the other items on the right, the one you are interested in is baking soda..

but if your SWAMI says that the genoharmonics detox.
It would be Caribou with any of the foods on the right not just baking soda.

Hope this makes sense :)

Many Explorers have white rice as a super food it too will detox the body for Explorers.

Does anyone know exactly how powerful baking soda is in detoxing? I read about using it (& Epsom salts) to offset the effect of salicylates... So I used it a few times in hot water...
I didn't experience detoxing in the way I had before with other detoxes (BM's) but I definitely seem to be able to now eat quite a few things I was getting reactions from before?!
My problems were never nasal reactions I & can't remember if the nasal reactions I've had in the last two weeks, were a result of the baking soda, but I have certainly had a clean out in that area lately!!
So, maybe that was my body detoxing, but whatever, I feel about all healed again now & am not having skin reactions to foods I had a problem with in the past...(dance)  Plus a friend I hadn't seen for a couple of weeks told me I was "glowing"??!!(woot)

I have found it extremely effective for my constant dry mouth, caused by medication I have to take.  Baking soda is a neutral on my Swami, which I constantly think about, so if anyone has a suggestion for helping with dry mouth I am willing to try it!

This is a fascinating thread! Patrick, I checked my genoharmonic combos, and baking soda is right there coupled with caribou! Caribou is none too common in Australia  ;D but I noticed that baking soda is also coupled with lamb. Now that I can source!! I will give it a go.

BTW, I have used a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water for years to settle my stomach anytime I have indigestion, or nausea. Works great. Thanks to the other posters for various suggestions as to more regular use.

For years, when feeling a bit off or nauseus, even headachy, I have taken a half teaspoon in water.  Feel better almost instantly.  Now this is about 4 or 5 times a year.  I think my mother suggested it when I was a child.....now good to find out it is an ok thing to do.....interesting.

I agree trish!! I am still convinced that it must reset the balance for me, somehow...??!!

I felt a tiny bump on my cheek the other evening (an "oh too familiar" response when my body starts reacting to something I've eaten), so I took some bicarb immediately ;) No further developments (dance)

I am back to eating so much more variety: avocados; nuts; banana, etc etc... Next problem is gonna be keeping my weight down :D Was actually easier to resist stuff when I was getting reactions ;D ::)

I should add - back a couple of months ago I discovered ghee; started making it, as well as  craving it??!!
I do believe there is something in listening to your body & seeing as I was craving it with carob...I ate them both liberally...;)

I don't crave ghee now, in fact funnily enough the thought of eating either doesn't appeal at all...So I'm not sure if this helped my reactions (as in thinking the ghee started my gut healing - as it would)??!!
But, I was still getting odd reactions till really recently... so definitely the bicarb seems to have finished it off...

Sorry if i have already siad this but

You need to be careful where you get your bicarb from, baking powder is not the same

gluten free stuff usually has corn in it.

and some apparently have aluminium in it.

I get mine from a specialist supplier after my partner had some really bad reactions to some ordinary bicarb, she is a mal absorber which may be the reason, but you need to check wjat;' in yours.

example baking organic gluten free baking powder ingredients
mono calcium phosphate, corn starch, sodium bicarbonate.

In short baking soda and baking powder are not the same thing -  get al and gluten free bicarbonate of sodium

Impurities in Sodium BicarbonateSodium bicarbonate is a very versatile substance and the list of uses given is by no means exhaustive, but represents some of the better known uses. People should be aware that when using for medicinal purposes, producer's baking soda contains traces of aluminium. This author contacted one retailer (McKenzie's Foods) who quoted their sodium bicarbonate product indeed has aluminium, naturally occurring at maximum levels of 0.2ppm (0.2 mg per kg).

Is baking soda good for all blood/geno types, or just for Explorers? Is this something I should consider if I'm feeling a little "off"?

I always thought that acid reduction was a bad thing, especially on a full stomach, when we need stomach acid to digest food properly.

On the point of addedtive and in particular "non caking agents" found in "gluten free baking powder" i know it powder and not just soda, but people use the wrong stuff all the time so you need to be aware.

Dr Philpott, in his book on Brain Allergies (2), provides us with numerous examples including: Hyperactivity in a child being caused by string beans; violent anger in a woman that was triggered by oranges; sensitivity to wheat in a seventeen year old who had been classed as mentally ill for three years; watermelons leading to depression and irritability in a twelve year old; manic depression being caused by milk in a thirty year old patient. Dr Philpott cites many other cases where people's 'psychological' problems have in fact turned out to be reactions to food, chemicals in the environment, preservatives and additives, non-caking agents in table salt, and chlorinated water.

phylisium

Just discovered that phylisium may contain Galactam's which may casue problems for people with Frcutose Malaborbtion.

see

Risks of Taking Psyllium Fiber
•Psyllium husk, when not taken with sufficient fluid, can form a hard mass within the bowel and cause bowel obstruction. People with known intestinal obstruction, intestinal hernia, ileostomy, colostomy, rectal bleeding, anal fissure or anatomical abnormalities of the gut should not take Psyllium.
•People with diabetes, fructose malabsorption or hereditary fructose intolerance should check if fructose, HFCS, sorbitol or other sugars are present in the product
•Psyllium supplements should be always taken with recommended amount (check product label) of water or other fluid and never as a dry powder alone.
•Psyllium supplements should never be used more than seven days without doctor approval.
Side Effects of Psyllium FiberPossible side effects of Psyllium fiber:

•Serious allergic reaction, including anaphylaxis, difficulty breathing, rash
•Choking, difficulty swallowing
•Nausea, vomiting
•Bloating, when taken in excess.
•Severe constipation or even intestinal obstruction, if ingested with insufficient amount of fluid, or in people who had previous abdominal surgery or have anatomical abnormalities of the gut
•Hypoglycemia (low blood glucose)
•Reduced absorption of certain drugs, so Psyllium should be taken few hours before or after a drug.
•Reduced absorption of calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and vitamin B12 especially in small children
Because of possible severe side effects, Psyllium husk in a supplement form is better to avoid and natural foods high in soluble fiber, like oatmeal or wholegrain bread should be considered, if necessary

Interesting looking back on this thread...I sure wish I had revisited it over the last 6 months ::) I am still thinking there may be something in the high sodium content of baking soda (bicarb)
Started taking it for my skin reactions with great success, but I have put on weight gradually over the months :o Wasn't as concerned  as I should've been since my skin was getting clearer & less reactionary ??) But like I predicted earlier in the year the weight has crept up...*sigh* Must re-check if gluten free means there is corn in it??!! There should be nothing in the bicarb, since it isn't baking 'powder' after all...However there is well over a gram of sodium in each teaspoon??!!

Hey Possum, thanks for bringing up this thread again. Baking soda has been on my mind lately. I'm pondering about its effects on detoxing--for dissolving tumors and treating cancer.

When I dug up an old thread on this subject (below), it seems that Dr D does not agree so much about drinking baking soda in water for such treatments:

http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1285780694%2F

Am I reading him wrong?

It's interesting that Lola mentioned that when we overdo the carbs the body's internal environment turns alkaline and baking soda can reset the ph. Does that mean, Lola, that it will make the body more acidic--good for us Type O's???

I couldn't open that thread but I have seen other sites that recommend de-alkalising in regards to cancer etc... :-/ I think if you go back to the start of this one you will see it depends on the individual & what their swami recommends?! :-/

Beef is the strongest acid forming meat, while oily fishes can be be alkaline forming. Eggs are a strongly acid forming protein-based food.

While the majority of fruits have an alkaline positive balance on the pH scale, a few fruits are acidic.... including many of the Hunter beneficial fruits.

Acidic diet can exacerbate inflammatory process's.

Acid/Alkaline balance in High protein and Hi carbohydrate diets is a issue that sodium bicarbonate could help neutralize. Turning down the Hunter/Explorer acid stomach a notch seems a most likely reason it is recommended in Swami as beneficial to consume.... with beef.
