Baking soda experience
by Todor Alexandrov
6 months ago I read an article about how baking soda may help the gout, even to cure it!
And started taking it, without doctor approval. I didn't know that it may cause some problems...
But when started first to take it, it were just for prevention, I didn't have an attack then. During this time I had a permanent pain in the thumb joints, not so acute, mostly in the morning just after wake up. After the second day of taking baking soda, this pain was gone! The dose was 2 tea spoon per day.
I need to mention that I wasn'nt on any diet! I was taking this maybe for a month! After stopped and in some weeks the attack came.
When the attack begin, i started with 3-4 times baking soda per day. And the result was that the attack was not so strong like before, I even was able easy to walk, and the pain was gone on the 3-th day! In the past I needed to take indometacin, colhicine to stop the pain, and was not able to walk more than some steps, but now just soda, and indometacin only in the first day.
Now because of the sider effects, I don't take soda for prevention, but when the atack come, I will use it for sure!
My advice is when you take baking soda, take along some stomach relief herbs, or medicine.
