Bill, can you clarify this for me. Ted wants us to add baking soda to lemon juice until it stops fizzling. But in his other posts (see below just add 1/2 ts of baking soda) does that mean 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda is adequate for 2 tablespoon of lemon juice? What happen if it still fizzles?
"Per Ted postings
The lemon juice formula, 2 tablespoon of lime or lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water"
Thanks Bill for your expertise.

Hi Everyone...I've noticed that alot of people who would like to use Ted's Alkalizing formulas here on EC, seem to have inherent fears of using an unknown or foreign chemical like Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking Soda in Ted's remedies.
The purpose of this post is to put people's fears to rest and to illustrate that Sodium Bicarbonate (aka Bicarbonate of Soda or Baking Soda) is a natural body-friendly chemical.
* The human body needs bicarbonates as part of its homeostasis mechanism to help alkalize the body and maintain body fluids within a healthy pH zone.
* Despite present day fears to the contrary, the body needs Sodium which is a major and essential constituent and electrolyte of the blood.
* Bicarbonates are needed and secreted by the pancreas, to neutralize the hydrochloric acid from the stomach chyme at mealtimes, in order to allow the next phase of digestion in the duodenum, whose medium must be neutral to alkaline for the duodenal digestive enzymes to work.
* Bicarbonates are an essential aid in the human respiration cycle, which helps in the process of swapping carbon dioxide and oxygen during respiration at the cellular level.
* Before the 1930s, Baking Soda in solution and on its own was recommended by Doctors to cure stomach acid problems, flu and colds and was used as toothpaste. The doses recommended in these times were much larger than recommended on this site.
Sodium Bicarbonate is currently used widely in the Medical profession as defined here:
* As an IV infusion as a flush or buffer for cancer chemotherapy.
* For women in labour.
* For Metabolic Acidosis as a serum alkalizer.
* As an alkalinizing agent in prolonged cardiopulmonary resuscitation and in the treatment of certain drug intoxicants.
* As a hydration agent for Radiographic contrast dyes.
* Supplementation for Renal Tubular Acidosis.
* As treatment for pulmonary hypertension in newborn babies.
* As a treatment for Diabetic Keto-Acidosis.
* As treatment for hyperkalemia (excess potassium)

Adding Apple Cider Vinegar to established dose of baking soda
As I have some inherent metabolic acidosis, my nephrologist prescribed 1/2 tsp baking soda a day, which seems to be working perfectly. How do I add ACV or lemon/lime juice and keep that result?

To Bill from San Fernando,
From all the emails that I read from you to Earthclinic, obivously you are very knowledge person.
Can you help me on Ted's alkaline formula, what happens if you put in 1/2 tsp instead of 1/4 tsp of Baking Soda in ACV, or whole glass of water instead of half glass, how does this change the effectivness if any ?
Same question for the lemon and lime formula, keep adding baking soda until stop fizzle, what happen if you add too much, what happen ? Also when I add baking soda to lime and lemon, there is always some fizzle. does half glass of water makes stronger vs whole glass?
Thanks!Replied by Bill
