I have been taking 1/2 tsp baking soda in an 8 ounce glass of water on an empty stomach as part of Ted's Remedies for Lupus. My question is: How long after drinking the mixture may I eat? PS: So far the remedy I found here has HELPED my LUPUS symptoms tremendously! Still on the mend, but after one full week, I have more energy during the day. I am hopeful that the other symptoms will abate as well. Thanks to Ted & everyone who wrote in with their feedback... very helpful.
