+Scarlet Zubaidah :+Hveragerthi so it means can check ph through urine right?"
Once again my comment in the thread was immediately deleted so I am re-posting here.
NO, the only way to check your blood pH is with a blood test. Urinary pH only shows you the urinary pH.
In fact, a blood pH of either 6 or 8 and above as is being discussed by this person trying to achieve this would mean death since the body can only live in a very narrow pH range. This is why the body has numerous systems in place to maintain its blood pH. Mainly respiration and kidney function. So you are not going to alkalize the blood by ingesting baking soda.
First of all the baking soda is going to get neutralized by the stomach acid forming carbonic acid and sodium chloride salt. An excess of sodium chloride production can actually lead to hyperchloremic acidosis.
By the way, ingestion of baking soda and other alkalizers has been studied for cancer and proven they DO NOT kill cancer cells. Especially considering the fact that cancer cells have an alkaline internal pH that allow the cancer cells to survive and drives glycolysis of the cancer cells. Excess alkalinity also morphs healthy cells in to cancer cells:

This is why my responses keep getting deleted. I can back what I am saying with actual evidence instead of just making up BS like Marcus Guilano is doing.
Secondly, even a minor shift in the pH of the blood is met initially with changes in the respiratory rate to compensate. Therefore, even if the baking soda did make it to the bloodstream any alkalizing effect would lead to a decrease of respiration to build up acidic hydrogen ions (protons) to maintain the blood pH within that narrow level.
If you really want to alkalize you can do this 100% for free. How? Simply hyperventilate. This reduces the essential carbonic acid levels in the blood. And what happens? You pass out as the body tries to protect itself from the alkalosis. This occurs as the alkalinity constricts blood vessels to the brain and inhibits the release of oxygen to the tissues. So the lack of oxygen to the brain causes you to pass out and you fall down so that gravity can assist with getting blood back to the brain. In the meantime respiration temporarily ceases or slows to allow the build up of carbonic acid once again to restore blood flow and oxygenation to the tissues, including the brain.
Still think trying to force the blood in to a more alkaline state is safe and healthy?
Do you know what happens in severe cases of alkalosis (excess alkalinity of the blood)? The person dies from a lack of oxygen!!! This is not only from the constriction of blood vessels reducing circulation and the alkalosis preventing the release of oxygen from hemoglobin. Severe alkalosis also leads to spasm contractions of the lungs causing the person to suffocate.
Since my posts keep getting deleted I am going to re-post them on at http://www.MedCapsules.com
under Health Fraud so they cannot be erased. In my opinion Guiliano does not have even basic enough understanding of chemistry and human physiology to address the facts and evidence I keep presenting, which is why my posts keep getting hidden or deleted instead of addressed by Guiliano.
