The enzymes and hormones which are products of the endocrine system help the food in our body to be dissolved. Kidneys and pancreas produce sodium bicarbonate to help the body dissolve and use the food we eat.
The pancreas produces the bigger part of sodium, which protects out kidneys from damage. But sometimes, the kidneys can produce the bigger part of sodium bicarbonate and this depends on the type of food. If we take sugars and fat every day, the pancreas will be overworked thus producing a smaller amount of sodium bicarbonate. This will lead to kidney damage.
Sodium bicarbonate is of extremely importance for our system because of its neutralization of acids and protection of the kidneys and other organs. If there is a lack of it, the acids in our body can’t be neutralized which leads to harmful effects on the kidneys and other organs.
There was a study at the Royal London Hospital on the effects of baking soda on kidneys. It showed that the progression of kidneys stones can be slowed down by baking soda and that is very beneficial. Also, baking soda can help people undergoing dialysis by fixing the kidney damage. And after a while, they will eliminate the need for dialysis.
When kidneys produce a small amount of sodium bicarbonate, the other organs play that role. When they can’t produce sodium bicarbonate or get it to the urine, it will enter into the blood and become acidic. And if this occurs, the acids from the blood aren’t removed. When the work of the kidneys is proper, they transfer sodium bicarbonate into the urine, so the blood goes back to normal again.
The focus of this study was mainly to people undergoing dialysis which showed a huge success. And, it showed that baking soda can stop the progress of kidney stones, reverse the damage on the kidneys and even eliminate the need for dialysis in patients with kidney disease.
This study lasted for 2 years and by the end only 6.5% of the patients still needed dialysis. At the beginning of the study, 33% needed dialysis. When we compare the beginning and the end number, we can see that this success is really amazing! Sodium bicarbonate can stop some related diseases like heart or end-stage renal disease and can prevent and even reverse the onset of chronic kidney failure.
Baking soda has enhanced efficiency when is consumed orally and combined with dialysis because it goes directly to the bloodstream. Also, it neutralizes acids such as Sulfuric, phosphorus, and nitrogen, allowing them to pass through the kidneys without causing damage.
Also, baking soda can be used for other diseases, even cancer! It is often used by chemotherapy patients to treat the side effects of the therapy.
Baking soda treatment
On the first day dissolve a little baking soda under the tongue. Then, for the next few days, prepare a mixture of 1 teaspoon baking soda and half a teaspoon of high-quality salt into 1.5 l. of water and drink it.
Of course, kidney damage can be caused by an unhealthy lifestyle. So, it is necessary to have a healthy diet for your kidneys and overall health. Take care of the food you eat. Eventually, your look is a perfect mirror of your health.
