“Salicylates and similar food chemicals (colours, preservatives) delay gastric emptying and accumulate in the stomach thus allowing continuing absorption. Sodium bicarbonate increases excretion by increasing the pH of the urine. It is used in hospitals when patients present with acute or chronic salicylate poisoning. According to many failsafers, half a cup of soda bicarb in the bath water works ‘brilliantly’ for both eczema and behaviour, and can be used 3 times a day. Many mothers say that 1/8 tsp in a glass of water works well but not if used more than once a day. Adults can have 1 tsp up to 3 times a day. If you have to break your diet (e.g. Christmas day), don’t wait for reactions to appear. Take soda bicarb as soon as possible.” – Failsafe Program Newsletter.

I attempted this remedy earlier because I felt rotten today (after being so good all week). I’ve had some more nose inflammation. Teeth didn’t feel as clean this morning. Slight red flare-up appeared on my chin as the day progressed, had a blurred brain too. Oh dear. Knowing the true cause is confounded by the fact I had yoghurt this morning, and a banana last night. But I think it was also the tobacco smelling room I spent the day in yesterday. I was in an enclosed room with a smoker later in the day too. The bicarb did actually make me feel quite a bit clearer, though because it is salt, it made me horrendously thirsty.
