sodium bicarbonate with molasses
The pH level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our body.
Chronic over-acidity corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked
will interrupt all cellular activities and functions. In other
over-acidity interferes with life itself. It is at the root of
Well I am delighted
every time I see anything from Vernon Johnson who managed to get his
urinary pH up to 8.5 for five days and then within two weeks was
back at his oncologist’s office for a test, which showed his bones
being cleared of his cancer.
“Cancer tried to kill me. After a struggle or two… or three… or
four… or more, I said, “No!” Or at least I was hoping for a “No.” I
turned to Cesium, but ended up with Baking Soda. My goal was to
change my pH quickly. I knew little or next to nothing what pH,
Alkaline or Acidic meant. Happily I found out,” wrote Vernon
Vernon is alive and well and that is all that really matters. He is
a cancer survivor and did not spend hundreds of thousands of dollars
to become one.
Everyone should buy some pH strips and become familiar with the
invisible pH side of their lives and they should not wait until they
get cancer to do so.
The time to start treating cancer the natural
way begins right now, not after one has allowed oncologists to
poison them with chemo and radiation therapies and then one has to
struggle against their deadly toxic effects.
Our body’s pH controls the activity of every metabolic function
happening in our body. pH is behind the body’s electrical system and
intracellular activity as well as the way our bodies utilize
enzymes, minerals, and vitamins.
I wrote in my Sodium Bicarbonate book
Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer
Treatment that sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is the time honored
method to “speed up” the return of the body’s bicarbonate levels to
Sodium bicarbonate happens to be one of our most useful
medicines treating as it does the basic acid-alkaline axis of human
physiology. Sodium bicarbonate is a
“nothing-to-lose-everything-to-gain” treatment for cancer as well as
the general acid conditions behind a host of modern diseases.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) lives up to the image on the Arm &
Hammer’s box, it is the ultimate heavy weight workhorse medicine
that every healthcare professional and parent should be
knowledgeable about and be using routinely.
Cancer cells have a lower pH than surrounding tissues.
Oncologists do understand that bicarbonate is necessary to protect
their patients from the toxicity and harm done by highly toxic
chemicals used in chemotherapy.
They also know it is of
extraordinary help to patients receiving radiation treatments as it
protects the kidneys and other tissues of the body from radioactive
damages. So does cannabinoids.
Oral NaHCO3 selectively increased the pH of tumors and reduced the
formation of spontaneous metastases in mouse models of metastatic
NaHCO3 therapy also reduced the rate of lymph node
involvement and significantly reduced the formation of hepatic
metastases. Acid pH was shown to increase the release of active
cathepsin B, an important matrix-remodeling protease.
There has been work going on at the University of Arizona
bicarbonate (baking soda) as a potential treatment for cancer.
Robert J. Gillies and his colleagues have demonstrated that
pre-treatment of mice with sodium bicarbonate results in the
alkalinization of the area around tumors (Raghunand 2003).
of treatment has been found to “enhance the anti-tumor activity” of
other anticancer drugs. This is very similar to the recently
published research involving injecting O2 directly into tumors and
showing such direct administration of oxygen also facilitated the
action of chemotherapy.
This year these same researchers reported that bicarbonate increases
tumor pH (i.e., makes it more alkaline) and also inhibits
spontaneous metastases (Robey 2009). They showed that oral sodium
bicarbonate increased the pH of tumors and also reduced the
formation of spontaneous metastases in mice with breast cancer. It
also reduced the rate of lymph node involvement.
Utilizing sodium bicarbonate when dealing with cancer does not
the Simoncini theory that cancer is a fungus but it sure
helps to understand how fungus infections are commonly involved with
cancer. I really do not think Simoncini means that cancer is caused
by a fungus. What he is really saying is that it is a fungus or it
is accompanied by fungus and yeast.
It really does not matter what we believe, certain substances like
sodium bicarbonate have a strong and undeniable effect on human
physiology that does not depend on our belief systems.
nothing psychosomatic about bicarbonate; it does not qualify as a
placebo and only fools refuse to recognize its importance in general
medicine, pediatrics and oncology. There is also potassium
bicarbonate, also used as a nutritional medicine and magnesium
bicarbonate in the oceans but not available anywhere in solid
Some of the best products have these minerals with
Special Note: In
'Sodium Bicarbonate - Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer
Treatment,' it is stressed that baking soda should not be considered
a standalone cancer treatment. It should be used in conjunction with
a full protocol.
Soon I will be publishing a video book and a chapter laying out my
entire protocol that I teach people how to use in my consultations.
The practical hands on information is simple enough to teach in an
hour and that is in great part why it offers a revolution in health
and medical care.
Though one cannot teach a person about Chinese medicine without a
strong commitment to learn it, one can teach a nurse in an hour or
two how to use acupuncture needles, especially that Japanese type
which uses insertion tubes. The needling part is astonishingly easy
though understanding what one is doing is something else.
I have written many books on medicine and will soon come out with
the second edition of my cancer book, which is now four years old.
In the case of my Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol lay people,
without any medical training, can learn how to treat themselves. It
is actually very easy to practice emergency room medicine at home
using oral and transdermal means instead of injections and IVs. One
can also do chemotherapy at home without an oncologist as long as
its natural chemo.
Most cancer doctors only like to play with poison
and I have a lot to say about that in a coming essay about “hot
chemotherapy baths,” the fast rising and scientifically unproven
“fad” in cancer treatments.
Healthcare practitioners and physicians will gain a new respect when
they themselves know, practice and teach people what they can do for
themselves at home both before they come to our offices and clinics
and certainly when they leave and go back home. We need to empower
people to be healthy and take part in recovering from the diseases
they fall victim to.
