BAKING SODA

Judas Iscariot DID NOT betray Jesus...that is what it said in today's paper...It says that Jesus had Judas turn him in. This information was found in the desert somewhere...It is a written recording of the last conversation Jesus had with Judas before his death. Guess we can no longer use the phrase "you judas" when we are referring to a cheater and a liar. Any way after reading the Divinci Code I am wondering if this document was not "planted" as ALL the scriptures from that time period were supposedly destroyed by the Roman Catholic Church. Not that it matters but this information is "old news" I watched the movie....Passions of the Christ....and even if you do not read the words...you can tell Jesus and Judas were arguing and Judas did NOT want to turn Jesus in....Yes it was a movie but one that all religious sect heads were invited to preview and ALL of them agreed that the movie portrayed the happenings as they are written....Anyway off that soap box just thought I would give Heidi one more thing to stress over....wanna "re-read" the book sister I have the one with pictures...Is it time for the truth to be revealed about Mary too???

okay so the title of this blog was BAKING SODA.......bet your all confused now huh??? Well a dear person in my life has great big ugly "bubbles" growing on her feet. This makes it very uncomfortable to walk and there is not room for two wheel-chairs in her home....she came to me for advice as she was soaking her feet in warm water and peroxide.....my advice to her....

Corn Starch...long story behind it and many will argue with it...but if you know the life cycle of a staphylococcus aurius, or the staphylococcus bacillus....you will know corn starch. Both bacteria like it and both has a 72 hour mitosis period...so if you use corn starch on foot problems and WASH your feet every day...being sure to dry them good...we recommend a blow dryer the heat "dries out" the little buggies to which kills them....the problem should go away...they will migrate to the corn starch...with no legs this is a slow process for them though...it is like having the choice of a liver and onions...nutrious but not so delicious...or a tee bone....not as healthy but much better on the taste buds....if you do not wash the corn starch away though you are providing a very prime breeding ground for them to grow.....so wash them down the drain....

Now for the baking soda.....I was introduced to baking soda a very long time ago...infact it is the one thing in my cup board that manufactures have left alone in the packaging department...it still looks like it did 33 years ago when I discovered it in my grandmothers cup board....the pretty orange box got my attention...she showed me that day many uses for this little gem...

1. Tough stains on your dishes...afraid of a Brillo pad or want to replace comet...here you go.
2. Obviously the baking potentials are unlimited.
3. It makes a great mess when mixed with food coloring and vinegar.
4. Eats odors (this one I am still not sure whether I believe....)
5. putting out fires, it's non-flammable
6. Home Remedies to many common health problems...

every one has heard that a teaspoon of baking soda mixed with water is a good cure for heart burn....baking soda is a base chemical with a pH almost the exact opposite of pure acid....this makes baking soda one of the largest "neutralize" there is...it is used in the science fields any time pH is an issue...which is almost always....

the Human body, with exception of a few self contained systems, is almost an "absolute neutral"...almost anything that invades are body is acidic or base...this is how it over comes our extremely tight defense systems.....
take a bee sting for instance...when the bee leaves it's stinger behind...it leaves a little "balloon" of acidic fluid...this is what causes the sting to hurt so bad.....picking the stinger out opens up the wound...removes the acidic bulb....putting baking soda on it neutralizes the acid left behind....thus getting rid of the pain...this works on other bug bites too if you poke a hole in the skin which is made too close when its punctured....

bringing us to the skin....the first and most important "defense" mechanisms our bodies have...Skin is designed to be water restistant...the cells are arranged in an irregular pattern that prevents invaders from "getting" in. Skin is made up of cells unique to skin but it also is a "dump" site for other cells in the body that have lived their life span....by "packing" it all together with the dead on the outside, then the old, then the young, then the new....thus layers by the time "invaders" make it in the body has had the chance to send it's "defense" out. skin is important to keep intact...once broken...the body has to send for it's "second line" and this can take a few hours or days for them to show up and locate....

most common problem....burns...whether from the sun or another source of heat...burns break the barrier.....a sun burn? well this is really gross so read it carefully sister....when the sun heats our skin....it "boils" our cells...these little fellows require a very stable temp in order to reproduce...which our body provides as needed (we are walking air conditioners and heaters for the little cells.) the sun literally "cooks" them in their own juices. Just like meat...they turn color when they are cooked....thus tan to red depending on whether they are well done or medium rare.....so next time your in that tanning bed or laying in your yard....know you are "cooking" your army....maybe they need hazard pay. Now melanin will come into question here...it is the by-product of these little guys...kind of like the color of their blood......

So when you find yourself in a situation that has compromised these little dudes what should you do.....Neutralize....heat something up and it get acidic...(this is a chemistry issue having to do with the release of hydogen ions from the molecule.) So now you have not just "fried" them but the byproducts they put off upon "rupturing" are acidic....these acids KILL the cells you have not yet "fried". The deeper the burn the less the pain, they say, as nerves are burned at the "young growth" level of skin....So by adding baking soda to a COOL bath...or making it into a paste with water and applying it to the burn.....you will neutralize...the area...this will NOT stop the death rate of the damaged cells....but it will prevent the acids from damaging more cells and alleviate the pain.....

CAUTION---DO NOT put baking soda or any other "cleaning agent" except cool water.....on broken bleeding skin........not only are some toxic to the blood system but all of them will kill the cells that are being made to "temporarily fix" the problem....these cells already have a very short life span and killing them WILL almost guarantee an infection.....it takes the body about 72 hours to get rid of the "ickies", gather the "repair" troops, and begin the process....

If you want to aid your troops in this little endeavor...do not donate to the red cross...eat protein...the "construction" workers take the "amino acids" from protein and use it to make the "mesh netting" that new skin cells need to adhere too...if it is a muscle wound....egg whites are the choice "amino acid".....

Burns....ALWAYS remove all clothing....clothing...no matter how lose fitting...holds heat in...this allows the burn to continue it's battle and over come your troops.......ALWAYS immediately bath the burn in cold water...this process needs to continue for at least ten minutes...our troops are tough but the barrier has a lot of "hidey holes" that need cooled.....for non-blistering burns...go for the baking soda..DO NOT use ointments or band aids these hold in the heat....Blistering burns are a major danger....any burn in one area of the body...larger than a 3 inches...needs medical attention....the alarm bells that go off in our bodies when the front lines have been penetrated, can cause the "others" to panics....Panics makes us go into shock...when the brain and the blood system both "panic" well your in big doo-doo.....

for smaller burns such as those acquired while using a welder or blow torch....these too need immediate cooling...they will continue to burn deeper even after you have "forgotten" about it...the brain went into "panic" mode and made you "forget" ....the skin is not in that same mode though and it is screaming for back up....After cooling for 10 minutes seek medical attention if the wound is black and singed looking...if not, only cover it up IF you absolutely have to, too keep it clean and protected...DO NOT rupture the blister....this will happen in its own time...that "clear fluid" is there to protect the underlying tissue from further damage.....

So this is way more drawn out than it should have been but I have so much fun using metaphor's and similes when I write about the human body...it makes it much easier to understand I hope.....Unfortunately once you do it is hard to not feel you live in the twilight zone....You are nothing more than a "colony" similar to the planet system...We are all in each others solar system....and we are all made of many "different" colonies that have learned to survive by using each other....not one can function properly with out the other.....the government lies in your brain....a big ball of fat that thinks too much....the "municipal jobs" such as police men, emergency crews, road crews, and garbage dudes, mailmen, and even the exterminator...all "commute" through the "blood system" to their various jobs......if it were not for the "electric company" we would have no power...pain is the High price we pay for this service....

so ...life is not complicated it is communal........... My reality

Shana, you need some sleep! I don't know if baking soida will help, but you might want to try it. The reason I say this is because you wrote and posted this article, which was vry intreesting, at 6:01 a.m. in the morning! I have not seen that time on the clock this early intothe day since last summer, I pretend that it not longer exists! No one should be writing this in depth article this early into the day - even after four cups of coffee and watching the news for an hour, I am still not awake enough to write. One thing I discovered about Baking soda as a child and prior to the invention of "child proof" caps which should also be labeled as "removable proof" caps. if you take a touch of baking soda, a little vinegar and put it in one of these little bottles, snap the lid shut, shake it and set it down quickly, the little lid will fly along ways when it explodes!

Knowing that this site will be visited early by all since Shana is always the first to post, got a call this morning from yur grandfather, sking that we come in and take your grandmother to the emergency room. Terry has went it, she has not been feeling well, he had her go see a doctor a few days ago but she ended up not going because there were to many people and she would have to wait. This morning she was having dificulty in breathing so Terry took her in to the ER - I should hear something from her in about an hour or so.
