Baking Soda; the miracle.

Baking soda or Sodium Bicarbonate is derived from the natural mineral called Natron.

Humans produce acid with almost all bodily functions. Acid helps in many of the processes our bodies under go to keep us alive and healthy. The thing we often do not realize is the over abundance of Acid that is detrimental to our over all well being.

This over abundance of acid can cause many different problems from heart burn to longer term negative health effects such as osteoporosis. Also, feelings of inflammation and gas are irritated by acid and actually cause a lot of the fatigue and headaches we as humans tend to experience on a day to day basis.

That is where the alkaline chemistry and all of its divinity come into relieve our pain caused by an extreme imbalance in our pH levels.

The opposite end of this acid-alkaline spectrum can be found in baking soda, a cheap, inexpensive, easily accessible mineral derivative. A small amount mixed in with water can reduce the un-ease and rawness of high acidic levels.

There are other benefits of ingesting a small amount of baking soda from reducing and eliminating acne, to calming an upset stomach. Also, of course the use of baking soda as a cleaning ingredient. Eliminating stains from teeth and also as a gentle exfoliant for the skin. Because of its anti-septic properties baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate is a miracle that we often overlook.

Being more aware of our pH levels on the acid-alkaline scale is a huge asset to further our health and overall life. Of course to much of this mineral derivative can also have poor effects as with any other induction to our living bodies. The key here is balance, how every scale should be placed.

New Moon, New Year, New Decade!

A new decade can only happen once every 10 years, a new year once a year and a new moon once a month, and all of these things will be co-happening on January 24th, 2020.

This is the absolute perfect time to be making long term goals. With the Aquarian energy, the new year energy and the new moon energy you can expect that whatever you put special attention on during this moon phase, you will see returns!

Let’s also use this time to reflect on what we loved from 2019 once more before finally going forth. Give thanks to whatever served you in 2019 and appreciate that whatever happened made you stronger and more ready for your journey ahead.

A new moon is a great time to reflect as well as plan ahead, and I think an even better idea is to reflect back on the entire decade! What did you learn in the last ten years? What was your biggest lesson and what will you be taking with you moving forward?

A decade vision board couldn’t be too broad of a vision could it? Maybe, but I am sure you have some long term goals you could give some attention to. Add in some finer details. What color will you paint your new house, or where will you eat on your anniversary.. Sometimes painting little pieces of the puzzle can really push you to achieving what you set out to do. Or if relaxing, and feeling good is more on your agenda, what color mood lights should you get for your bedroom?

Looking to buy new electronics, this would be a good time to set that search in motion. The Aquarian energy can give a boost to electronics, and technology. If you are planning any group events, Aquarius will lend their hand for you there too. Planning a surprise party for a loved one or co worker, or even just going to the museum with family, Aquarius is in.

All this new energy can get a little overwhelming but this is a great time to multiply your outcome and really set a plan to push you through the year and beyond.
