Last week, I told you about how the government basically dropped all funding for hard-to-treat autoimmune disorders back in the 1980s when AIDS/HIV came onto the scene.
The situation was made all the more tragic because we knew, even back then, how to completely prevent AIDS and HIV. But we still don’t know how to effectively treat or prevent autoimmune disorders!
Thankfully, some researchers have finally given autoimmune disorders the attention they deserve. And they found that a safe, old-fashioned HOME REMEDY may one day prove tremendously effective in managing symptoms.
Let me explain…
“Turn off” inflammatory responses
There are about 80 different autoimmune disorders—including MS, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Type I diabetes, and lupus. They occur when the body’s immune system turns on itself, attacks its own tissues, and produces harmful inflammatory responses.
Plus, we know that the severity of a patient’s symptoms, which can range from mild to completely disabling, ties closely to the amount of inflammation produced.
But according to a recent study conducted by scientists at the Medical College of Georgia, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)—often used as a safe HOME REMEDY for heartburn—may help “turn off” these harmful inflammatory responses…
For this investigation, scientists conducted experiments using baking soda in both animal and human trials. They looked specifically at baking soda’s effect on specialized mesothelial cells, which line the body’s internal organs and cavities.
These mesothelial cells also have little, finger-like protrusions called microvilli, which monitor the internal environment for potential invaders. And they signal when your immune system should mount a protective inflammatory response.
But in patients with autoimmune diseases, mesothelial cells seem to sense threats when there aren’t any. As a result, they can signal the body to attack the non-existent invader through inflammation, which can worsen your symptoms or increase your risk of developing additional diseases.
Well, it seems simple, ole’ baking soda THWARTS this whole inflammatory process…
In fact, after two weeks of consuming a daily baking soda-water solution, both the animal and human mesothelial cells in the spleen, kidneys, and blood stopped promoting harmful inflammation—and instead started reducing it!
Plus, just one dose of baking soda solution produced anti-inflammatory effects that lasted for at least four hours in humans and up to three days in lab animals.
Talk about an important breakthrough! I’m certainly excited to see where this research leads, especially considering how toxic the current drug treatments are for autoimmune disorders.
In the meantime, if you suffer from chronic inflammation or an autoimmune disease, you may want to talk to your doctor about adding a simple baking soda solution to your daily regimen. I personally find it can be quite helpful to quickly soothe what ails you.
My go-to baking soda remedy
- ½ to 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 8 oz glass of water
Mix baking soda into water, stirring until it’s fully dissolved. Then drink! Repeat this process up to six times a day, with doses spaced at least two hours apart. Add a twist of lemon to enhance the taste.
(One word of caution: Baking soda contains sodium, so if you’re limiting your sodium content for health reasons, please consult with a healthcare professional before beginning this regimen.)
Of course, inflammation lies at the root of so many common chronic diseases, not just autoimmune diseases. So, this remedy could ultimately prove useful for a whole host of ailments—including heart disease, cancer, and obesity.
