Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
Alternative Healing Ingredients
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Baking Soda (aka sodium bicarbonate)
The amount of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) needed to react with baking soda to get a pH level near 6.5-7.0 is close to 10 parts ACV to one part baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). Always start on the low side first!
If you are not used to it, try 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 2 tablespoons of ACV in 250 ml (8 oz) water. Then increase slowly as needed. For tougher cases like Acid Reflux, you can go up to 2 tablespoons but you must start slowly or you will upset your stomach. Most people will not need this much baking soda.
