I know my grandfather used to use it. But do you believe it's safe to use for neutralizing stomach acid? My stomach makes too much acid.
Well milk can stimulate acid production. I don't drink. My diet is pretty bland. Bland is best. My Dr. has prescribed proton pump inhibitors. But the side effects bother me.Originally Posted by jdmr4815
Without making a cursory glance at the Google, I'd say small amounts wouldn't be unsafe. We bake with it, it can't be that bad. The problem I see -- perhaps serious, perhaps comical -- goes back to the volcano experiments of youth. Stomach acids could react with the baking soda and create a very unpleasant fizz. I don't know that. Just conjecture.
There's always milk. It gives temporary relief.
Rolaids or Tums or some other antacid that contains calcium carbonate -- which can cause kidney problems down the line, I believe.
Do you drink? Alcohol can cause excess acid production.
Have you considered your diet? That would be the leading culprit, I would think.
Anyway, do tell us how it goes!
