The dosage varies with one’s pH readings of both urine and saliva and the condition being treated. Maximum dosage is right on the Arm & Hammer box, which is seven half-teaspoons a day for a full grown adult under age 60 and three half-teaspoons for people over age 60. One has to check their pH daily in the morning and after a bicarbonate bath, which can be made quite strong.
Add 1 lb or more to a bath 2x/week if heavy detoxification of radiation or other strong pollutants is needed. When treating cancer, take the urinary pH up to 8.0 and keep it there for ten days, then take a week off and start again for another 7 to 10 days. This can be repeated until one test negative for cancer or one just feels the lack of need as health returns. This is also true for infections such as a cold or flu, but often these resolve after only a few days of bicarbonate use.Then the bicarb use can be stopped. Again start out slowly and monitor your body’s reactions, always guiding yourself with the pH strips. One can take a lot of bicarbonate for a short period of time so do not hesitate.
“The proven value of Arm & Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda as a therapeutic agent is further evinced by the following evidence of a prominent physician named Dr. Volney S. Cheney, in a letter to the Church & Dwight Company:
“In 1918 and 1919 while fighting the ‘Flu’ with the U. S. Public Health Service it was brought to my attention that rarely any one who had been thoroughly alkalinized with bicarbonate of soda contracted the disease, and those who did contract it, if alkalinized early, would invariably have mild attacks. I have since that time treated all cases of ‘Cold,’ Influenza and LaGripe by first giving generous doses of Bicarbonate of Soda, and in many, many instances within 36 hours the symptoms would have entirely abated. Further, within my own household, before Woman’s Clubs and Parent-Teachers’ Associations, I have advocated the use of Bicarbonate of Soda as a preventive for “Colds,” with the result that now many reports are coming in stating that those who took “Soda” were not affected, while nearly everyone around them had the “Flu.”
Recommended dosages from the Arm and Hammer Company for colds and influenza back in 1925 were:
- During the first day take six doses of half teaspoonful of Arm & Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of cool water, at about two hour intervals.
- During the second day take four doses of half teaspoonful of Arm and Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of cool water, at the same intervals.
- During the third day take two doses of half teaspoonful of Arm and Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of cool water morning and evening, and thereafter half teaspoonful in gladss of cool water each morning until cold is cured.
I usually recommend pH Adjust, an inexpensive formula of sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate and magnesium for daily use of bicarbonates. And for creating the strongest water medicine I recommend magnesium bicarbonate, which is a form of magnesium that is only in liquid form. Magnesium bicarbonate it the ultimate mitochondrial cocktail.
