There are a lot of health benefits from doing this every day for 2 weeks and 2 weeks off.  The idea that dipping a lemon in baking soda can protect against cancer has been controversial, but hear Eva Fox out before coming to a conclusion. Take it two weeks in a row, then rest two more. Excessive intake of sodium bi-carbonate may cause alkalosis, so it is better to alternate two weeks and two not. DO NOT take this if you suffer from gastritis. Watch this video by Eva Fox, with Home Remedies For Health, in her step by step tutorial with the diagrams so you can get a better understanding about how this improves your health.
