There are many causes for inflammatory autoimmune responses in the body. This simple remedy might be the answer to stopping them.
Eat a clove of garlic daily, drink apple cider vinegar, take a walk in the full moon-simple home grown recipes for staying healthy abound.
A new one has just surfaced, and guess what? It involves baking soda.
Based on a study done at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, experts are now recommending that you drink a bit of the fine powder dissolved in water each day. Why? It’s said to reduce inflammation.
Here’s how it works. Ingesting baking soda apparently triggers your stomach to increase its acid production, in order to get ready to digest the next meal.
Baking soda also somehow encourages the mesothelial cells residing on your spleen to not overreact inside your body, and stops them from starting a protective immune response.
Basically, it prevents an unhealthy autoimmune response.
As Dr. Paul O’Connor, the study’s corresponding author states, baking soda has your body tell itself that what you ate is “most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection.”
Just how much baking soda you should be consuming wasn’t revealed. Some people already consume it as a natural remedy that stifles acid reflux. Half a teaspoon dissolved in a glass of water is said to do the trick, but sip it slowly. It can also cause gas and diarrhea. It’s all about balance.
