I was beginning to show the telltale signs of the flu yesterday--fever, chills, headache, body ache. I took my usual oregano oil--and it started to take the edge off--but as soon as it would wear off a few hours later, the symptoms would come back.

I ended up having to stay up late...not by choice...but knew this would really do me in the next day and I'd be a wreck in bed w the flu. Knowing I still had to get up early for my 3 kids to send them off to school (single mom), I decided right before I got in bed, to take a couple pinches of Baking Soda in water--as I read this helped a woman wake up in the a.m. and not sleep in.

Not only did I wake up...but I woke up before my alarm, refreshed, full of energy, and NO FLU SYMPTOMS. It's like I never even had it. I am shocked.

I take a ton of natural things for illness but this has to be the fastest, most effective, and cheapest I've ever encountered.

I wanted to share with you a remarkable family story of healing. My mother was born in Arkansas in 1920, two years after the frightening 1918 flu pandemic, but my aforesaid Irish grandmother had four young boys at the time. The story goes that the local doctor was able to treat and cure every patient with baking soda! Not a single patient of his died! I assume he administered it in water. I think that's really something; we're still talking about it 90 years later! Would that help today with the flu? I don't know, but unless there was a reason not to give it to young children, I'd sure try it.

I have to go now and read more of your site! Thank all of you! Happy and Healthy New Year!

Recommended dosages from the Arm and Hammer Company for colds and influenza back in 1925 were:

During the first day take six doses of half teaspoonful of Arm & Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in a glass of cool water, at about two-hour intervals.

During the second day take four doses of half teaspoonful of Arm and Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in a glass of cool water, at the same intervals.

During the third day take two doses of half teaspoonful of Arm and Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in a glass of cool water morning and evening, and thereafter half teaspoonful in a glass of cool water each morning until cold is cured...
