For anyone using baking soda this is what I found out from my practitioner. The problem with using it long term is that most baking sodas have aluminum in it. Which is interesting to me since my tap water grew parasites in two hours from adding hot aluminum cups into soapy lemon joy....hmmmmm...anyway, you can get a form of baking soda free of aluminum at Vitamin Cottage. I'm now in my fourth week of using the PH toner and two weeks into the PH cream, First few weeks were rough, lots of things pushing out of the skin and I did zap for mycoplasma in hopes it would relieve me also had a laser treatment for the immune system and an ionic foot bath. Had to also return to Artemisia & Clove with a 5-Fold Pau' D' Arco Extract my health practitioner gave me. Things are better, discoloration to my skin is fading, lesions not as bad but still have slight surfacing of a few new fibers, lesions are in their scabbed state. To alleviate the lizard-like skin layer, soaked in tub of red wine vinegar, Sea Salt
, grapeseed, neem, baking soda, garlic, ginger, cheyenne pepper, zeolite clay and charcoal. Then used a vitamin E cap with grapeseed and a drop each of eucalyptus, peppermint and white camphor. That night I started my liver cleanse again which I'm currently on now. Eating lots of yogurt. Crawling, itching and biting have been reduced greatly. Also use a talc powder with cheyenne pepper and diatomaceous earth on skin/hair at night to sleep better. So far I seem to be doing better this week.
