    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.

I still feel a little cold before I wake up, but nearly so much so. It is tricky because a cold feeling can also be due to adrenals insufficiency & I’m on hydrocortisone. Well, whatever, I’m not only not feeling so cold, I am not hitting that daily ”wall” ...   [retrieve this message]

    Oh my goodness, are you still having M.S. symptoms. I have so often seen stuff on the net, I think recently on Youtube with the Longevity Conference, and/or with Dr. Mercola & another doctor, about how to fight that, but I don’t remember what I heard since it’s not my particular problem area. ... ... My alkaline readings have been by the book. If I eat green veggies & not too much milk meat or pastry, then the little paper is green. If I leave out the veggies, back to 6.5, or yellow, again. Now I have to remember to eat veggies even if the alkalinity seems fine, but then I am ”eating” kelp ...   [retrieve this message]

    Boy do I love to hear whenever anyone gets off a pharmaceutical, especially Synthroid which I think is awful. (I’m on Armour.) Are you still on the Thyro Complex, and if so for how long please? How long did it take for you to get rid of the Synthroid. What did you go by to determine when to lessen and/or drop it?   [End]

    Thanks for your post. You are right. It takes time to see if something is working. ... ... I find all the info on alkalinity/acidity to be very confusing, and often conflciting on the net. ... ... I try to eat tons of veggies along with other healthy and organic foods. Yes, veggies & some fruits get my alkalinity up to about 7 to 7.2, which is where it normally stays. But if my alalinity goes higher I have a lot more energy! If it reaches even 8.5 I’m a happy camper and whizzing around plus feeling more alert. That only happens if I use baking soda (I know one has to be cautious with that)in a ...   [retrieve this message]

    ...you may need it anyway. (See Dr. David Brownstein vids & site about Iodine deficiency problems in this country.) ... ... I have hypoadrenalism, also hypothyroidism & thought Armour thyroid is massively more helpful than the Synthroid I used to take, still I had problems with low morning temp and drag & other thyroid (& maybe adrenal symptoms, hard to separate) symptoms so I decided to try adding iodine per some info on the web. I already was ”painting” the bottoms of my feet with abt 1/4 tsp of iodine, but started pretty much covering the tops & bottoms of my feet with it, plus gave myself a ...   [retrieve this message]
