Can I use baking soda to reduce tendonitis in my elbow ?

Can I use baking soda to reduce tendonitis in my elbow ? If yes, what dosage should I use and for how long? I have had tendonitis in my left elbow for 5 months, and have been resting the elbow as much as possible - no golf. The pain has reduced but I cannot get rid of the problem completely.

Hi
Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum

You can try homeopathy safely for pain management and reducing the inflammation. Please get in touch with a homeopathic physician. Baking soda and rest are not helping much, are they?

Takecare.

Hi
I do not think baking soda is the right choice. Amongst herbs punarnava is the main herb to reduce inflammation. In herbalmedicines we use triodasahng guggul and punarnava guggul internally and myostaal oint externally.
