Flu Season

The flu has been going around in my area within past month. I was doing pretty good not catching it, but, I eventually started showing symptoms.

The other night, I couldn't even fall asleep, had a slight fever, a cough, and just felt bad.

Went to kitchen, saw I ran out of orange juice. As I was standing in front of kitchen sink, saw my container of baking soda that I sometimes use to brush my teeth with.

I've taken baking soda in the past, to help relieve acid reflux I sometimes get.

Rolled it around in my mind, if maybe this could possibly help relieve symptoms of the flu.

I took about a quarter teaspoon of bsoda, mixed with about six ounces water. Drank, went back to bed.

About fifteen to twenty minutes later, I felt great! No cough in lungs, no fever, just felt good! Felt wide awake so I watched a little tv. About an hour later, I took another quarter teaspoon of bsoda with water. Went to bed, fell asleep in about twenty minutes. Woke up next morning feeling great!

I did some google searching on " baking soda flu ". Back during the 1918-1919 flu epidemic, people were actually using baking soda and water to keep from getting flu, and lesson the symptoms. Check it out.

Something to ad to my OP:

If you do attempt the baking soda/ water remedy for the flu ( or whatever ), be careful how much you use, and do it just for maybe three or four days at most.

If you have high blood pressure, you may not even want to use bsoda. It has sodium in it.

Taking too much can cause diarrhea. Do like I do, just take a quarter teaspoon with water, maybe two to three times during the day. Some sites recommend 1/2 teaspoon, six times a day. You may get diarrhea doing that.

For prevention of flu, once in morning, once before going to bed, might do it.

hi rodan,

Sounds like a risk with taking the baking soda, not sure it is a good idea considering side effects, and how different remedies work differently for different people. Good to hear it worked for you, just not something I would want to try.

Everytime I feel a hint of a bug coming on, I take NutriBiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract - liquid concentrate ... 10 drops in a glass of water. Kicks it every time.
