It's it safe too douch with baking soda and why?

It's it safe too douch with baking soda and why?

No need to douche: The vagina is an amazing organ- it keeps itself clean without the help of any soaps or douches. There are "good" bacteria in the vagina that help keep out the "bad" bacteria, and douching too much can lead to a change in the bacterial flora of the vagina. This can predispose to infections such as bacterial vaginosis. You can clean with water and gentle soap around the outside of the vagina. ...Read more

Minoxidil is a classic example to understand this phenomenon. It's original use was oral for BP, but it's topical use as Regain has made millions of men happier! ...Read more

I ingested to much baking soda and water and have been sick from it all day. Is there anything I can do? 5 teaspoons of baking soda and 40 oz of water

Baking: Baking soda is simply sodium bicarbonate, a relatively common compound. Although the adverse reactions to the administration of sodium bicarbonate can include metabolic alkalosis, edema due to sodium overload, congestive heart failure, hyperosmolar syndrome, hypervolemic hypernatremia, and hypertension due to increased sodium, the dose you took is relatively small. I suspect that simply returning to a regular diet should resolve any symptoms you had, unless they are unrelated to the baking soda. ...Read more
