Okay people, it is apparently winter in northerly latitudes and I am starting to get reports of throat infections and depression. You must start taking care of your noses and throats immediately.
So the topic for today is Baking Soda-
I am beginning to believe it is the best thing on the planet.
It neutralizes acid, and Strep bacteria need acid to digest glucose. It starves them. And the water rehydrates your tissues.
Baking soda is the most effective tooth cleaner.
Saline with baking soda is the best nose wash. (Simply Saline is one)
Warm water with baking soda is good to gargle with for middle ear infections.
It also dissolves wax in the outer ear.
If you drink it, it relieves urinary tract infections.
And it makes a nice bath salt too.
Not to mention it cleans pots and pans and bong residue. Ha.
Don't forget to rinse well and lubricate with some kind of oil afterwards. Olive, coconut, butter, etc.
