I started using this technique to contain the unstable situation in my own mouth several years ago. The more you learn about the benefits of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), the more you will be impressed. Marc Sircus has made videos and written an excellent book just about the benefits of bicarbonate.
Sodium bicarbonate is an alkaline substance that counteracts the acids made by bacteria in the mouth. Many of us run “acidic” which can be measured by testing the urine and saliva, especially first thing in the morning, with inexpensive test strips
It is best used in conjunction with the mouthwash, oil pulling, and tongue scraping. Since the upper teeth often enter the maxillary sinuses, using a sniffer can be an essential part of healing the skull.
Brushing with Baking Soda Instructions
- Buy a one-pound cardboard box of bicarb. Some have additives and anti-caking agents. Less additives is better.
- Tear off or open the top and keep it by your sink.
- It can use used in addition to toothpaste or as a replacement.
- Wet your clean toothbrush and simply stick it in the box to collect some baking soda on the toothbrush.
- Brush as you normally would, including the gumline when bacteria make acid that weaken our teeth.
- You can dip your toothbrush as many times as needed to brush all four quadrants of your mouth.
- While you should rinse away any residual baking soda with water, you can leave a little in your mouth at bedtime to keep your mouth alkaline for a while.
- You can also swallow a tiny amount if your urine pH strips show that you are frequently acidic.
