Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as bicarb, is a perfect natural remedy for numerous health benefits. Some medical studies reveal that bicarb contributes to good health by combating cancer acidity, kidney disease, and rheumatoid arthritis and gout. It also provides natural relief for common ailments, such as flu, cough, sore throat, urinary tract infections, muscle pain, fatigue, and heartburn.
Dean Kesarlal, the founder of Safe Soda and an iconic Australian health educator, explains how bicarb is a natural remedy for many chronic acid based diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and gout by neutralising the acid and replacing bicarb into organs and fluids that have become depleted in bicarb. Cancer, viruses, bacteria, mould, fungi, and parasites are all acid-based and low pH-dependent. Therefore "acid is the common denominator in these diseases, and are triggered by acid, created by acid, or they use acid within the body" says Dean.
Sodium bicarbonate helps neutralise acidity and thus can improve many ailments and diseases. Bicarb is essential in oxygenating the body and acts as a buffer in the blood and all bodily fluids to help with the alkalinity and pH levels, crucial for one's health.
Dean encourages a healthy lifestyle and found that sugar fuels many diseases as disease ferments the sugars and proteins, creating a more acidic extra cellular environment. . In most instances, sugar and acidity create an environment that feeds cancer cells. "Cancer cells require acidic, have no oxygen (anaerobic), and are positively charged," says Dean. The cancerous cells or tumours thrive in acidic/anaerobic environments. Acidic environments breed diseases, and an alkaline environment would foster health.
Cancer is often treated with chemotherapy. If people choose this treatment route, studies have shown that creating a more alkaline extracellular environment allows the cells to unlock allowing chemo to work more effectively. Natural bicarbonates neutralise the acid, alkalises the body, and buffers all bodily fluids.
It is important to note that alkalising diets and substances are NOT actually alkalising, as they are NOT pure alkaline and have no ability to neutralise an acid. To gauge if a food is acid forming or alkaline forming they burn the food and turn it into ash. They then place that into some distilled water and measure the pH. Measuring pH does not measure the acidity or alkalinity of a substance, says Dean. They are two separate scales. THis is very important to know what scale we are talking about when it comes to health. High pH does NOT neutralise an acid only Alkalinity. We are all taught that anything above 7 on the pH scale is Alkaline. This is simply NOT the case and this is one of the major flaws with the current health system. ALL being based of high pH and not Alkalinity.
Safe Soda flagship product Superior SodaTM is a Pharmaceutical Grade Sodium Bicarbonate sourced from nature itself. One of the most significant health claims of this product is that it helps maintain and support healthy acid/alkali balance in the body. The product is listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) and Register with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and classed as a Listed Medicine
