Home remedy may cure rheumatoid arthritis, lupus; costs pennies
(By Jacob Elyachar, Tech Times) A recent scientific study revealed that consuming baking soda could be helpful to prevent health problems.
The study that found that drinking water with baking soda could reduce people’s chances of getting autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
The research team gave baking soda to healthy humans and to rats.
The scientists discovered that after their subjects drank the baking soda and water mixture for two weeks, the immune cells (macrophages) would focus on reducing inflammation instead of promoting it.
O’Connor is optimistic about the study’s findings and believes that it would help people that are struggling with autoimmune diseases.
“You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it towards one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus. It’s potentially a safe way to treat inflammatory disease,” said research team leader Dr. Paul O’Connor.
In addition to being labeled a potential remedy to fight autoimmune diseases, baking soda can be a very versatile product. It has also been noted that the combination of a teaspoon of baking soda and a glass of water could be a solution to combat heartburn. Read the full post at Tech Times.
