Bicarbonate of Soda Baths

High acidity within the body from an imbalanced diet triggers many degenerative conditions like joint pain, inflammation, gut dysbiosis and so on. Bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) is a cheap but effective way for reducing excess acidity. As the skin is the largest organ, it may be used to support detoxification. Sitting in a alkaline bath creates a form of reverse osmosis where acidity is drawn out through the skin and alkalising minerals are drawn into the blood system via the skin.

How To Do A Bicarbonate of Soda Bath

  1. Fill bath with water at a comfortable temperature for you to lie in
  2. Tip 1-2 cups of bicarbonate of soda into the bath water and mix in
  3. Soak for around 20-30 minutes (do not use soap)
  4. Pat dry

By the way as a bonus, bicarbonate of soda cleans the bathtub and the drain!
