Study: Baking Soda Pulls Toxins from the Body

Bowl of baking soda next to the box.

Just the other day, we posted about the benefits of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) — and now we have another to add to the list.

A new study has found that baking soda is capable of drawing uranium out of the body of rats. Just as the powder draws bad smells from your fridge, it seems that it might also draw bad toxins from the body.

This, of course, comes with the standard scientific research caveat— the study was small and conducted on animals, which means that while these results are promising, they are not the last word on whether Baking Soda will save you from the next Hiroshima.

Still, drinking a tablespoon or two in a little water before bed or adding some to your morning smoothie could help draw not only uranium, but other toxins from the body as well. A great idea for those on the hunt for ongoing detoxes.

    Q: I have a question regarding Bad Breath. I have tried everything, baking soda, rinsing with peroxide, Dr. Katz products, changing toothpaste, breath mints, everything you could think of. I don't think it has anything to do with my hygiene I think I have a health problem that my doctors have not been able to find. I really want to know how to get rid of it.

I brush them several times a day and I even carry my toothbrush with me sometimes.

    Q: It's been 2 weeks now since, I started eating exclusively raw. I'm even baking whole wheat bread in the sun. This was a great substitute for the cooked rice I used to eat. I'm also eating quite a large amount of grapes (red and white), as my body seems to ask for it. But recently, I noticed that my heart is beating quite strongly, and I find difficulty to bear the hot weather as a consequence. Also, I noticed a white pimple on the tip of my tongue, and this was a confirmation that there was maybe too much stimulating energy in the heart (according to oriental diagnosis of the tongue). When I eat sun baked bread, I automatically feel heat in the body. So I'm wondering if this is a good food to continue with or not. Isn't it more "neutral" (in terms of energy) to include a small portion of cooked brown rice along with the raw regimen? Just want remind you of my health issue: HPV and bacteria in the urinary tract.

    A:

    Greetings! No need to feel helpless. Feeling is very powerful and you will attract more of what you are feeling if you don't control your feeling. Please consider ordering and READING (digesting) our "Mental Science Manual" and "The Love Manual" e-books. If you had sex with the guy who cheated on you, you ignited stored residual feelings from the initial violation of your trust. Forgive yourself (and him) and move on. Okay, as far as the sun baked bread, LISTEN to your body. If you're feeling heat, it's stimulating. Cut back on eating this bread. Go back to a little brown or wild rice (very balancing).

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.

    A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

    Q: I understand by reading your articles, and other related areas of study that the organs in the body are intelligent and have memory. The topic of organ donors comes up from time to time, and most recently in regard to recently deceased NFL player Chris Henry, whose family gave his eyes and other organs up. What is your perspective on this issue?

    A:

    I respect free will, but our organs should never be donated. Never! The only exception is if the organs are coming from a very highly and spiritually evolved person (which is rare in our society). Organs carry memory. If you're born with organs you should die with them.

    Q: I am interested in starting the Full Body Detox program. At this time, I would like to know which program is best for me. At current, I have started removing things from my diet as of 2 weeks ago (pork, chicken, red meat, I'm trying with the fish but it's hard!) I am not eating cheese but I still eat yogurt and every now and then I will eat a boiled egg (egg whites). I have removed soda from my diet, no coffee, I drink herbal or green tea, pomegranate juice or orange juice and I drink filtered water (I have a countertop filter that I change every 6 months and the Brita pitcher that I change every 2 months). Along with the supplement, is there an eating plan that you can suggest for me? I am eating more fruits and vegetables, but I would welcome suggestions on certain foods that I can eat while I begin my cleansing.

    A:

    The Full Body Detox kit comes with a prescribed dietary plan and notifies a person what they can and cannot eat during the detox.

    Q: PEACE AND BLESSING TO YOU, My 14 yr. old daughter was diagnosed with elevated blood pressure. She is not overweight, she is active and healthy. My question to you is what would be a good herb for her she is now taking norvasc 5mg. She still has headaches. She has mostly every test done.

I know I must sound like a mad woman but I did see this with my own two eyes. Never the less I am in need of something that doesn't require dealing with these vampires. I really would like to know of something that will cure this she is to young to be going through this. Signed (worried about my little aloha)

    Q: Hello, I'm on day 3 of the FBC and I'm having a really hard time with sweets. It's even more trying because I work in a bakery which I cannot avoid because it is a family owned business and I, myself do a lot of the baking. What do you recommend to help seize my sweet craving besides fruit? Because it seems that I can eat fruit for substitution but after a while I still want to eat cake lol. Also, what brand alkaline water do you recommend? Is it best to drink the bottled water or make it? Thanking you in advance. D.Bolden

    A: After a few days, your cravings will subside. If you feel like you need additional help with sugar cravings you can also try the Sugar Control. There are raw food desserts available in health stores like Whole Foods, raw food restaurants or raw desserts you can make. It would be best to purchase the alkaline water. Essentia, Nestle, Voss and Neo Water are some of the popular brands of alkaline water. Sugar Control - http://www.dherbs.com/store/sugar-Formula-p-63.html

    Q: Hello, I have recently become more sensitive to my body and I am trying to make better health choices. Thanks to your newsletter I've now stopped drinking coffee and switched to Yerba Matte. I have to say I do enjoy it very much. Only now am I going thru the withdrawals of caffeine. I first wanted to say thank you for that. My question is what herbs can I take that will help my memory both short term and long terms. My inability to recall something that happened, something I said, or even what I ate is becoming very frustrating. Also I am experiencing beginning symptoms of a kidney infection. Is the something I can take to help cleanse my body or help eliminate toxins that cause kidney infections? Please help with your suggestions. Thanks

    A:

    To improve memory I would suggest BRAIN TUNER Formula and BRAIN TUNER TEA consumed daily. For your kidney situation, consider performing the Full Body Detox Cleanse! Glad to hear of your like of herbal tea over coffee. Glad the newsletter is serving beneficial to you.

    Q: Thanks for the great web site! MY question is what's the best way to get sodium. I thought un-refined sea salt was the best, but the salt article says "eat this salt only if you must." The great thing about pure sea salt is that it all or almost all the minerals the body needs! So what's the best way to get all the mineral and to stay in balance? Also is there a way to get Epsom salt that is sodium sulfate not magnesium sulfate? Is it a good idea to bath in the "good" Epsom salt.

    A:

    You're welcome, Beloved!

    The best way to get sodium is via vegetables (i.e. celery).

    Sea salt is great source of sodium, but its a secondary source as it has to be processed from ocean water. Absent the process, it would not be available.

    But it does provide minute amounts of trace elements.

    In re Epsom salt, I haven't been able to find the sodium one.

    I stopped using Epsom salt many years ago.

    You could bath in the good Epsom salt, but sea salt is far better and more natural.

    Q: hello I am thankful for the information you gave on the moles. This does not answer my questions on the metaphysical meaning of the moles, and maybe I did not ask the question correctly. In your birthmark and white spots article you said that every mark had a meaning. My question was, I wanted to know the meaning of the marks. If you could help me with this I would be ever grateful. I have read many of the articles and they have been a big help. I try to study everything I can about metaphysics. I just started a new job in ophthalmology. I am now starting to study iridology with dherbs by my side I can't fail.

    A:

    I don't have the allowable time to write detailed responses, unfortunately (too many inquiries to answer). I save that time for articles. Moles denote things recorded in the etheric blue print that forms the physical body in each new life so clearly the mole denotes a hangover from the past life, i.e. an injury, a cultural mark, being branded, the site of a tumor, etc. An individual must find out the true nature and cause on their own such as undergoing hypnotherapy or past life regression.

    Q: I did the FBD, the Antiviral Cleanse, and Electric Greens Cleanse. I tested negative for HSVII, (thank GOD). But, I have still been experiencing a lot of itching, and redness in the genital area (and they get worse around the same time periods that my genital herpes outbreaks used to flare up, though this just might be a coincidence). There aren't any big lesions, but sometimes there are small patches of red raw skin, (not cuts). I know that the body can eliminate toxins via the skin. Knowing this I am assuming that if I take in toxins, it is still leaving via the skin (correct me if I'm wrong).

    A:

    Great to hear! You tested negative. The energetic residual effect of the outbreaks are still there. Doesn't mean you have herpes though! Healing is not over with because of some test! You still have healing to do on the emotional energetic level. You are 100% correct about your body eliminating toxins Beloved! Because, the occurrences are on the vagina, you may need to address some past sexual issue or issues dealing with your Goddessness.

    Q: I heard that regular detoxing removes toxins from the body, but in order to get heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic, etc. You have to do a special/certain type of detox design to remove heavy metals. Do your detox program remove heavy metals from the body? BTW I have large amounts of arsenic and mercury in my body. I notice your detox program is 3 weeks and most holistic practitioners say it takes 3-6 months to rid the body of heavy metals through chelation. If your detox program removes heavy metals do I have to do several iterations to totally remove heavy metals to an acceptable level?

    A:

    The Full Body Cleanse removes heavy metals from the body via the use of activated charcoal. No other product removes heavy metal toxins like activated charcoal (carbon). Now if your focus is mainly on removing heavy metals, we suggest you use liquid bentonite clay (every other day while on the detox) and also drink plenty of vegetable juice that has plenty of cilantro in it. Cilantro is an excellent heavy metal remover, especially for mercury (due to mercury amalgam in the mouth).

    You don't have to cleanse for 3-6 months straight to remove heavy metals. You simply detox (Full Body Cleanse), add liquid bentonite clay, cilantro juice, perform castor oil packs for liver cleanses, get colonics performed and do enemas (coffee enemas), drink oxygenated water (1 ounce every 30 minutes), fast (once you're off the detox); perform hot water soaks in 2-3 boxes of sea salt, etc.

    Q: How are you. I ran into your page on Youtube and subsequently did some research. Very Knowledgeable you are. I have problems with weight, stress, and erectile dysfunction. I work nights if I were to order your Full Body Detox does it need to be conducted in a different manner than someone who works at nights?

    A:

    Basically, you would just reverse the times you take the formulas. Instead of starting at 7 a.m., you'd start at 7 p.m. (or whenever you start your day or night). Just flip flop the time schedule. Plenty of people do this, those that work night shifts.

    Q: I have been battling endometriosis for several decades now and I hadn’t really found relief until I began educating myself and prescribing my own remedies…. conventional medicine seemed to be unable to help, save for surgery which only helped for a few months. I have recently experienced relief after learning to (avoid estrogenic foods, get rid of chemicals (perfumes, cleaning agents, sprays…), discontinuing relaxers and cosmetics, using natural deodorants, eating organic, eating raw foods, taking kosher supplements/vitamins that are bio-ready, refraining from sugar, drinking water, and so on…) …after a LOT of research and trial and error, I am beginning to feel better, though the progress comes at very slow intervals. My question to you is…how might I help the body clean the endometrial debris that may have attached itself in various places in the uterine area?

    A:

    KEEP GETTING EDUCATED! WE HAVE AN ARTICLE ON â€ENDOMETRIOSIS†ON OUR SITE UNDER ARTICLES THAT WILL BE HELPFUL.

    Q: First off, thank you so much for your responses to my questions regarding my husband heart murmur and weed smoking. Secondly...I am on my third day of the Full Body Detox & it is challenging and invigorating at the same time. My newest question is...how can I make the fruit smoothie that you recommended for drinking in the morning? & can you send my a recipe?

    A:

    A few recipes are in the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual.

    Use 1 cup of fruit juice (of your liking), 1 cup of frozen fruit (i.e. banana, strawberries, mango, etc.), 1 cup of ice (optional). Blend for about 30 seconds! Drink and enjoy!
