This is what I did for me... I do it every other day now as well....if needed Thanks to John Austin for his help with this including the many emails.
Baking Soda Used to raise urine pH (Alkalinize)
The term “pH” stands for the potential of hydrogen, which is simply the measurement of acidity and alkalinity. (7.0 is neutral neither being acid nor alkaline. Normal blood pH is 7.365.)
Suggestions for increasing pH rapidly:
First thing in the morning .. stir One (1) rounded teaspoon baking soda in 20 ounces of water. (Use plastic spoon so as not to create a dieletric reaction and also stir counter-clockwise with a plastic spoon.) Do not use regular baking soda - I use Red Mills - If you can not find it locally - You can purchase it at Amazon - Click Here
May be repeated at bedtime at least two hours after eating, until your pH is at desirable level.
If your morning pH is less than 8.5, you can increase your intake of baking soda. If your pH is more than 9.0 you can back off a little bit. Continue to take baking soda, and check your pH until your symptoms disappear.
Once your symptoms disappear, you can then reduce the amount of baking soda that you take daily. Because normal blood pH is 7.365, I personally try to keep my pH close to 7.4 in order that my body systems do not have to work too hard to maintain an optimum blood pH.
How long do you need to keep taking Baking Soda? Just like the oil dipstick in your car tells you when you need to add oil to the engine, using the pH tests strips frequently will tell you when you need to take some extra baking soda in order to maintain a healthy body pH.
Baking soda should not be taken on a full stomach because it will neutralize the digestive acids, quickly releasing a large amount of gas, which could then cause bloating and extreme discomfort. The exception to this rule may be if you are experiencing a lot of heartburn, then sip some baking soda and water slowly, which will release gases more slowly, allowing time to burp up the gas that is being expelled.
When taking extra Sodium, it is sometimes necessary to take some Potassium supplement at the same time to keep these two minerals in balance. Wine makers use Potassium Bicarbonate, which can be purchased from a winemaker or purchased online. It resembles baking soda in appearance and is also an alkaline mineral. If you like, you can mix the two together. I would use at least 3 parts Sodium to 1 part Potassium. Or you can purchase some Potassium Citrate from your local health food store. Just take enough Potassium to avoid leg cramps.
NOTE: Some people have reported increased bowel activity with baking soda. If diarhea is experienced, first understand that the body is cleansing, which is a good thing. This condition will subside when toxins are removed, however if this conflicts with work or other activities, simply cut back on baking soda temporarily until detoxification subsides.
