Apple cider vinegar and baking soda are two incredibly potent natural remedies for arthritis that you should incorporate in your diet if you want to successfully treat this disease (and its accompanying symptoms) without having to rely solely on pharmaceutical medications.
And here's exactly how to do it...
Yes, this is certainly one of the arthritis treatments that many people are unfamiliar with. But don’t be fooled folks because this is actually one of the most incredible home remedies for arthritis you’ll ever come across!
Most people use baking soda as a raising agent in their cooking, but its benefits go way beyond this.
By taking baking soda every day you will elevate your pH level and alkalize your body very quickly. This is crucial if you have arthritis because once the body is alkaline, relief from this disease begins almost immediately (no disease, including arthritis, can survive in an alkaline environment). 2
The beauty of drinking baking soda is it provides massive benefits with no negatives (as long as you don't take more than a teaspoon a day). And as a natural arthritis remedy... it works like magic!
Then you have apple cider vinegar, which is one of nature’s most powerful “cure all” medicines. Even the “father" of medicine, Hippocrates, regularly used ACV to treat a whole range of diseases and ailments in his patients. As for bringing relief to sore joints and successfully treating arthritis, apple cider vinegar works wonders - especially when it’s combined with the baking soda.
Most arthritis suffers don’t realize that when you have this disease, you'll usually suffer from poor digestion (reflux, etc) and have a toxic build up of pathogens in your body as well.
These two conditions exacerbate both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis tremendously.
Thankfully, ACV is a potent natural antibiotic, gut healer and pathogen killer. It also helps to recolonize the digestive system with essential bacteria (probiotics) so no bad bacteria can take up residence and wreak havoc on your insides! 1
When you purchase your apple cider vinegar, always make sure it's certified organic and still contains the “mother” apple (like these ones). Remember this... without the mother apple, ACV is useless! The baking soda must also be pure and naturally mined (Bob's Best baking soda is definitely the best if you can get it).
So all you do is mix up 2 tablespoons of ACV with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in a full glass of filtered water. You can also add a teaspoon of unsulphured black strap molasses or Manuka honey for extra benefit and taste. Drink this concoction twice daily 20 minutes before a meal then increase to three times daily after your first two weeks.
Note: Many people find that they just can't handle the taste of the apple cider vinegar. If this is you, you can now purchase ACV in tablet from. These work equally as well and can be substituted for the liquid.
One of the most notable benefits people discover within a few short weeks of using this arthritis remedy (besides an amazing amount of relief from their joint pain and inflammation) is the enormous energy boost they receive. Taking baking soda with ACV prevents your digestive system from having to use up and waste its own internal bi carbonates, which results in a natural increase in energy.
So get ready to enjoy this positive “side effect” as well!
