Thank you. You sound very knowledgeable. A problem for me, though, is that I have noticed baking soda gives me a funky feeling in one kidney and it is associated, at times, with kidney problems. Also, baking soda has salt in it and I try to keep my salt at less than 1 tsp a day in order to have normal blood pressure. Maybe in your combination it would not hurt me, but I don't know.
