Baking soda will increase your blood pressure which is dangerous for your health. Don’t use it ! For your condition, turmeric powder or raw is best to CURE them. I HAD AND CURED THEM myself, as well as my wife, my wife’s nephew. Doses, 2 capsules, 3-4 times a day. ( Do not use it too much, some one over used it had some reaction. It disappear when turmeric usage stopped. ) When all of the over the counter medication including Zantac did no longer help, turmeric stopped my suffering in less than 2 DAYS! continue taking it for 2 weeks, the stopped until now that over 2-3 years, no problem re-occur ! It’s cheap and available at most drugs stores.
I used creatine 8 or so years ago, had great gains, ( it was the exact same product then & dont tell me its gotten better becasue its effervescent or some .) But I also had a frequent & uncomfortable need to urinate that was NOT just from consuming extra liquid, but from my kidneys being put on overload & doing damage to them with this stuff. I drank plenty of water, took a little less than the recommended dose & was having the urination problem for years after the use of creatine… I also was very short tempered with my family & young kids at the time I took it as it altered my mood.
I also have a friend who underwent a kidney transplant, that if he didnt get, he would have died . the reason for his kidney failure was creatine & he would tell you to stay far away from it as it almost costed him his life. This stuff is absolutely no good-
