Facts say that 9 out of 10 cancer patients choose chemotherapy without even considering other less invasive options. Even though the vast majority of us know that chemotherapy is toxic to all cells, it represents the only measure that oncologists employ in their practice in most cancer cases.
Then, why would chemotherapy be the most popular treatment, actually, why is it still used at all? The answer is simple: because pharmaceutical companies and doctors earn from it. The reason is not that it has some beneficial effects, not that it decreases morbidity, mortality or diminishes any specific cancer rates. It does the opposite, actually. Even oncologists know that chemotherapy boosts cancer growth and long-term mortality rates.
Nevertheless, facts also show that there are far more productive and effective ways to deal the disease. For instance, even the most aggressive cancers which have metastasized have been reversed with baking soda cancer treatments.
Fortunately, there are people who are aware of the potential of sodium bicarbonate, that this same item can save a person’s life in the emergency room in a heartbeat, can be a primary cancer treatment option of the safest and most effective kind.
Namely, a few years ago, a member of the University of Arizona Cancer Center, Dr. Mark Pagel, received a $2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the effectiveness of personalized baking soda cancer treatment for breast cancer.
As expected, the results showed that dietary measures to boost bicarbonate levels can increase the pH of acidic tumors without upsetting the pH of the blood and healthy tissues. Moreover, animal models of human breast cancer show that oral sodium bicarbonate make tumors more alkaline and inhibit metastasis. Fantastic!
Regarding the fact that baking soda is completely safe and well tolerated, and the findings of these studies, world renowned doctors such as Dr. Julian Whitaker have adopted successful cancer treatment protocols as part of an overall nutritional and immune support program for patients who are dealing with the disease.
The Whitaker protocol uses 12 g (2 rounded teaspoons) of baking soda mixed in 2 cups water, along with a low-cal sweetener of your choice. Sip this mixture over the course of an hour or two and repeat three times a day.
The testimony of a man who has actually cured his own disease claims that he has found the cancer cure by using baking soda and molasses.
Findings by other experts from the team of Dr. Robert J. Gillies have already shown that pre-treatment of mice with baking soda results in the alkalinization of the area around tumors. Their report also states that baking soda increases tumor pH and also inhibits spontaneous metastases in mice with breast cancer.
Sodium bicarbonate is the most potent treatment of cancer, as well as influenza, common cold, kidney disease and diabetes if taken orally with water, especially water with high magnesium content, and when used transdermally in medicinal baths.
Furthermore, baking soda has its effects against radiation exposure, which is extremely useful nowadays, when everybody’s physiology is under heavy nuclear attack from strong radioactive winds that are circling the northern hemisphere.
Baking Soda- Content and Use
Although they share the same slightly salty and alkaline taste, baking soda is different from washing soda (sodium carbonate).
Baking soda is also called bread soda, cooking soda, bread soda and bicarbonate of soda, its chemical name being sodium bicarbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate. It is a white crystalline solid that appears as fine powder.
It has found its role in every household. For example, it is commonly dissolved in mineral water and used as a leavening agent in baking. It does that by neutralizing the acidic components of batter, which releases carbon dioxide and leads to the “raising” or expansion of baked foods.
It is included in toothpastes where it serves as an antiseptic, acid-neutralizer, whitening agent and plaque-removing agent as well as a cleaning agent. For its cleaning properties, it is also used as a household chemical. Other common personal hygiene products in which baking soda can be found include deodorants and shampoos.
Moreover, it has also been used to soften vegetable and to tenderize meat.
pH Medicine and sodium bicarbonate
The maintaining of our pH within a healthy range involves necessary lifestyle and dietary changes that will protect us over the long term. Staying within the normal range dramatically increases the ability to resist acute illnesses like colds and flues as well as the onset of cancer and other diseases. However, the use of sodium bicarbonate gives us a jump-start toward increased alkalinity.
This is a vital benefit from baking soda, since the pH of our tissues and body fluids is crucial and central. It affects and mirrors the state of our health or our inner cleanliness.
The pH scale is like a thermometer showing increases and decreases in the acid and alkaline content of fluids. The normal balance is the way to achieve all that. Namely, the closer the pH is to 7.35-7.45 on the scale, the higher our level of health and wellbeing. Deviations above or below this 7.35-7.45 pH range in the tightly controlled blood can signal potentially serious and dangerous symptoms or states of disease.
When the body can no longer effectively neutralize and eliminate the acids, it relocates them within the body’s extra-cellular fluids and connective tissue cells, which directly affects the integrity of cells.
On the other hand, when the body becomes too alkaline from too much bicarbonate in the blood, it promotes the occurrence of metabolic alkalosis. This state, if not corrected as soon as possible, can lead to severe consequences.
One of the major benefits of alkaline water has been promoted by Jon Barron, who shows the perspective to examine pH. In particular, he explains the primary benefits of alkaline water, that is, more “available” oxygen in the system and states why alkaline water helps fight cancer.
“Hydrogen ions tie up oxygen. That means that the more acid a liquid is, the less available the oxygen in it. Every cell in our body requires oxygen for life and to maintain optimum health.
Combine that with what we know about hydrogen ions and we see that the more acid the blood (the lower its pH), the less oxygen is available for use by the cells.
Without going into a discussion of the chemistry involved, just understand that it’s the same mechanism involved when acid rain “kills” a lake. The fish literally suffocate to death because the acid in the lake “binds up” all of the available oxygen.
It’s not that the oxygen has gone anywhere; it’s just no longer available. Conversely, if you raise the pH of the lake (make it more alkaline), oxygen is now available and the lake comes back to life.
Incidentally, it’s worth noting that cancer is related to an acid environment (lack of oxygen)–the higher the pH (the more oxygen present in the cells of the body), the harder it is for cancer to thrive.”
Anti- Cancer Action Of Baking Soda
First of all, malignant tumors represent masses of rapidly growing cells. Their rapid rate of growth means that cellular metabolism also proceeds at very high rates. Therefore, cancer cells are using a lot more carbohydrates and sugars to generate energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
Moreover, cancer cells need an acidic environment to grow and spread rapidly. Some cancer experts, believe that by buffering the tumor microenvironment with an alkalizing compound, the pH of tumors can be raised enough to starve them and stop their growth and spread. Interestingly, this rather simple solution to cancer has been proven right.
Some of the compounds formed from the energy production include lactic acid and pyruvic acid, which are cleared and utilized as soon as they are produces, under normal circumstances.
However, cancer cells are experiencing metabolism at a much faster rate, so these organic acid accumulate in the immediate environment of the tumor. That is one of the chief driving force behind the metastasis of cancer tumors.
But the excellent thing about this is that there is no need of some new synthetic drug to lower the acidity in the immediate environment of the tumor, since the common, simple sodium bicarbonate can serve the cause.
The journal Cancer Research published a study in 2009 which was among the first to confirm that the alkalinizing effect of sodium bicarbonate can indeed stop cancer. The researchers injected sodium bicarbonate into a group of mice. By raising the pH of the organ affected by the cancer, the authors of the study were able to determine how the growth and spread of cancer tumors were affected.
Baking soda indeed raised the pH and reduced spontaneous metastases in mice induced with breast cancer as proved by their findings.
Furthermore, they also published an important finding which suggests that sodium bicarbonate does not interfere with cellular metabolism even as it makes the microenvironment unconducive for tumor growth, since it works by raising the pH outside cells and not within cells.
This study also discovered some other very important facts about sodium bicarbonate and its use:
- It does not lower the levels of circulating tumor cells
- Inhibits the colonization of other organs by circulating tumor cells
- Reduces the involvement of the liver and, therefore, the spread of tumor cells to other organs
- Reduces the involvement of the lymph node on the transport of cancer cells
- Since its pH-raising effect is needed in the microenvironment of the tumor, it is desirable to deliver the sodium bicarbonate as close to the tumor as possible
In fact, directly injecting sodium bicarbonate in the tumor site is considered a better solution than oral administration, but the oral sodium bicarbonate is just safer and can be readily used at home.
Anti- Cancer Baking Soda Treatment- Recipe
To prepare this remarkable anti- cancer treatment at home, you need to mix baking soda wit maple syrup, molasses or honey.
One alternative for preparing the baking soda formula recommends mixing 90 teaspoons of maple syrup with 30 teaspoons of baking soda. At first, heat the maple syrup to become less viscous. Then, add the baking syrup and stir for 5 minutes until it is fully dissolved.
This preparation should provide about 10-day worth of the baking soda remedy. 5 – 7 teaspoons per day is the recommended dose for cancer patients.
Another recipe is published in Dr. Sircus’ book, where he documented how one patient used baking soda and blackstrap molasses to fight the prostate cancer that had metastasized to his bones.
On the first day, the patient mixed 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 teaspoon of molasses in a cup of water. He took this for another 3 days after which his saliva pH read 7.0 and his urine pH read 7.5.
Encouraged by these results, the patient took the solution 2 times on day 5 instead of once daily. And from day 6 – 10, he took 2 teaspoons each of baking soda and molasses twice daily.
By the 10th day, the patient’s pH had risen to 8.5 and the only side effects experienced were headaches and night sweat.
After this treatment, the patient had a bone scan and too other medical tests and the results showed an unbelievable effect: his PSA (prostate-specific antigen, the protein used to determine the severity of prostate enlargement and prostate cancer) level was down from 22.3 at the point of diagnosis to 0.1.
Nevertheless, pH medicine is not a complicated procedure and people should be informed about its benefits and ways of proceeding, in order to understand and appreciate what baking soda is actually able to achieve.
However, always take care when conducting or planning to conduct the baking soda anti-cancer treatment. This comes as a result of the fact that sustaining a high pH level can itself cause metabolic alkalosis and electrolyte imbalance, which can affect cardiovascular health and blood pressure, and can also cause edema.
