Potential to permantly alter the drug company industry. Box of baking soda costs less than $1. Inflamation and auto-immune diseases are a massive chunk of drug company profits.
[results of a 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in bottle of water for 2 weeks]……
“In the spleen, as well as the blood and kidneys, they found after drinking water with baking soda for two weeks, the population of immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. Macrophages, perhaps best known for their ability to consume garbage in the body like debris from injured or dead cells, are early arrivers to a call for an immune response.”
“Clinical trials have shown that a daily dose of baking soda can not only reduce acidity but actually slow progression of the kidney disease, and it’s now a therapy offered to patients.”
“The scientists also saw a shift in other immune cell types, like more regulatory T cells, which generally drive down the immune response and help keep the immune system from attacking our own tissues. That anti-inflammatory shift was sustained for at least four hours in humans and three days in rats.”
“O’Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease.”
