Is baking soda safe to ingest as a PH balancer?

Sodium bicarbonate (known as baking soda) is a natural occurring mineral that can provide some pretty miraculous health benefits. Most well known for its use as an agent for leavening bread and other baked goods, baking soda is extremely powerful for reducing or balancing acid in the body, which is at the source of many illnesses including cancer. Baking soda is both healing and preventative when taken orally in addition to its many topical health applications

In order to understand the effects of baking soda, one must first become aware of the consequences of too much acid in the body. An acidic pH causes the spleen, liver, heart and kidneys to get overworked. In order to buffer this acidity, the body has to rob existing minerals from the bones and tissue such as calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. This can lead to chronic conditions such as osteoporosis, loss of muscle mass, kidney stones, and impaired muscle functioning as well as an acidic environment in which heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and other diseases can thrive

How do you prepare this for the best benefit?
