I came across the "recipe" I was given for salt and soda solution to help control secretions. 

Thought it may be helpful to share. :)

Into 1 quart water add:

1/2 teaspoon table salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Shake or stir solution. Store at room temperature.

Use every 1-3 hours - especially after eating, taking oral supplements, and after sleeping.

Correct you are.  This should have coverage in the superthread, but when I looked there to confirm, there is a problem or two.  John, the link to "the essential kit..." is broken.  This is where i think this was covered.  Any way to fix it?


thanks for posting.
