Re: Body pain...
Interesting idea, Doc. At the least it might calm down the coffee cause indigestion I get from time to time.
I instances of severe indigestion I get an 8 oz glass, usually a ball canning jar, and put a heaping tablespoon of baking soda in it, then fill it with the hottest water that comes out of the tap. One moderate swig of that concoction...walk around for a few minutes...BUUUURRRRRPPP!!!
Ahh. indigestion gone.
While that sounds like a lot of baking soda, you're not drinking it all...just one good swig.
I too, would caution, baking soda my raise your blood pressure just as salt does.
