Ted, I have Addison's disease & have a hard time keeping my electrolytes balanced out. If they are out of balance I have muscle pain and very fatigued. I have been using the baking soda/lemon recipe you show here on Earth Clinic to alkaline my Ph, it worked the very first day like a miracle, I had lots of energy and was feeling good, however as the week went on I got to feeling worse, I was only doing this twice a day 1/2 lemon and 1/4 tsp baking soda to 4 ounces of water and my face got extremely, extremely dry, I am now severely fatigued, stomach is bloated & crampy, I am achy all over, sore throat, all the signs of electrolyte imbalance & my blood pressure is all over the place, one hour it will be low with low heart rate then the next its high blood pressure with high heart rate, it has not been stable. I have been more drowsy and out of it lately. I drink lots of water, and I take in salt & potassium so I don't know what is going on. I seem to be having a acid imbalance but of what? I don't know if its low potassium or calcium or sodium? I know emergency rooms uses baking soda to help lower very high levels of potassium fairly quickly. Could it be my potassium is low? I have started being nauseated now, and very weak and unable to do anything. It seems to be getting worse. My Ph is akalined soon after I do the lemon/Baking soda recipe but it goes back to acidic within 4 hours. I don't know what to do but I do know I am desperate to feel better. I don't know what to do to get to feeling better again. Should I quit the Baking Soda & Lemon? Or am I doing it wrong? Please Help. Thanks
