I started out using the baking soda and lemon or lime juice, with good results. However, soon I started noticing that my heart would beat faster each time I took the baking soda, which I assume was the sodium since I had experienced that reaction from sodium in the past. So I purchased a small bottle of liquid alkaline blend from a local vitamin store, this doesn't affect me in a negative way.
When I stopped using the baking soda, I immediately started using the alkaline blend, so there was no break between the two. On Friday (this being Sunday), I had a terrible die-off day lasting all day long. Saturday I felt like a million dollars, had all the energy I wanted and stayed busy all day long, however, I did experience pretty bad diarrhea off and on during the day, which Iíve noticed in the past happens with die-off. Today, about an hour after I awoke, I started having the usual die-off headache, felt absolutely horrible and was only able to force myself to eat a little (no appetite at all), and even went back to bed for about half an hour (I Ďneverí do that). But I refused to stay there, because we had such a busy day ahead of us. Three families took our mother out for lunch for Motherís Day, and by the time we arrived at the restaurant, I was feeling about 70% better. During lunch, my appetite returned, and Iíve been able to eat fine the entire day, so the die-off apparently only lasted half a day this time.
Iíve used the alkaline test strips, and if I eat meat, Iíve noticed my pH is lower, but when I use the alkaline blend, the pH balance is closer to what the test says is normal. My question is this; someone stated that your balance should be both acidic and alkaline, so Iíd like to know where the number should be for that to take place.
Any input will be greatly appreciated.
