It may take up to two days to feel relief in some cases; though, if taken on a regular basis, it will put off attacks before they take place. Make a mixture of 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in 8 oz. of water and drink it all straight away. 4 teaspoons divided up throughout the day is maximum suggested dose during an acute attack. Then reduce the dose as the pain subsides. Baking soda can raise the blood pressure.

Baking soda and fibromyalgia

This reduces stress and helps the body to relax. Baking soda is great to scrub your bath and kitchen with. Place it in a glass grated cheese pot with a stainless steel top that has holes in it, and just shake over the baking soda on the surfaces and wash.

Often after using a baking soda mouthwash, or simply placing some baking soda directly on my tongue, my fibro fog reduces significantly and immediately. There is something about the tongue and health that is very under researched. It’s widely known that poor health often results in white tongue, but no one seems to know what the tongue factor is. I’m not sure of the mechanism of action, but I plead with you to try this to see if it helps for you.

When asked, one fibromyalgia sufferer said that several days ago I read about taking 2 table spoon apple cider vinegar and 1/2 tsp baking soda 3x a day for relief of fibromyalgia. I am trying it. I have been doing it for 4 days now. I have not taken Lyrica for 3 days. I am feeling pretty good, but you know how fibro is. I have also done a bit of research on vinegar and it has a lot of health benefits including weight loss. The baking soda will oxidize the blood and help the body remove the lactic acid from the muscles. Excess lactic acid build-up is one reason we have so much pain.
