How much baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 4 oz of cold water, you can repeat every 4 hours. For adults, take no more than 3.5 teaspoons of baking soda a day, if you're over 60 years old, take no more than 1.5 teaspoons a day.

Do not take more than two weeks.

Do not take after you have a full meal, to avoid gastric rupture.

Do not drink the baking soda too fast, it can lead to gas and diarrhea.

Baking soda against stomach acid is a double-edged sword, if you have too much baking soda, the stomach acid is largely neutralized, your stomach will then secret more stomach acid.
There's no natural cure for hernia other than surgery. There're ways to relieve the symtoms of hernia. Relief of symptoms doesn't equal to a cure.
