Testimonials:
My father was a veterinarian and as far back as I can remember (I was
born in 1938 so my memory goes back to maybe 1943) he would take
sodium bicarbonate dissolved in a full glass of warm water whenever he
felt a cold coming on. I don’t remember him ever coming down with a
full blown cold. He would treat my cold symptoms likewise and I
responded equally as well. He also treated farm animals for various
illnesses with sodium bicarbonate via a gastric tube and they
recovered quickly. So I’ve known about the benefits of sodium
bicarbonate from early childhood on. Glad to see that its benefits are
being more widely touted. Although my father was a doctor of
Veterinarian medicine, he sometimes referred to himself as an MD (Mule
Doctor).

Dr. David B Winter, DO

As a physician, you should know about clinical trials. And, you should
also know about the placebo effect. Now, with this info, please show us
reliable data that show that sodium bicarb is worth anything to treat or
prevent cold symptoms. Please, also tell us the mechanism by which it
works. Use your scientific background.

Why not simply give it a try the next time you are starting to get a
cold or find yourself in the middle of one?

And how would I know if it is working or I would have become better on
my own, perhaps even faster? The plural of anecdote is not data.

The OP is not a physician. He's a copy/paste bot.
