Baking Soda & Cancer (The Last Laugh)

Baking Soda & Cancer (The Last Laugh)



University of Arizona Cancer Center member Dr. Mark Pagel will receive a $2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the effectiveness of personalized baking soda therapy to treat breast cancer. In other words, clinical trials on the use of oral sodium bicarbonate for breast cancer treatments are about to start![1] Obviously there are people in the know who have understood that sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), that same stuff that can save a person’s life in the emergency room in a heartbeat, is a primary cancer treatment option of the safest and most effective kind.

Of course I feel vindicated for everything I wrote in Sodium Bicarbonate – Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment, which still stands as the only full medical review on the subject of using simple baking soda in the practice of medicine. When taken orally with water, especially water with high magnesium content, and when used transdermally in medicinal baths, sodium bicarbonate becomes a first-line medicinal for the treatment of cancer, kidney disease, diabetes, influenza and even the common cold. And importantly, it is also a powerful buffer against radiation exposure, so everyone should be up to speed on its use. Everybody’s physiology is under heavy nuclear attack from strong radioactive winds that are circling the northern hemisphere.

Actually it is no surprise that a University of Arizona researcher received this grant because there has been cancer research going on for years there. Dr. Robert J. Gillies and his colleagues have already demonstrated that pre-treatment of mice with sodium bicarbonate results in the alkalinization of the area around tumors. The same researchers reported that bicarbonate increases tumor pH and also inhibits spontaneous metastases in mice with breast cancer.[2] It also reduces the rate of lymph node involvement.

I recently published about fungal infections, and breast cancer has been found to be associated with increased frequency of mold-fermented cheese consumption.[3] Fungi produce toxic metabolites called mycotoxins[4] that can cause cancer. Aflatoxin is a mycotoxin with carcinogenic potency that is found in inferior peanut butter and other nut and dairy products. Researchers in 1993 examined human breast cancer tissue and found significant carcinogenic aflatoxin within the cancer tissue implicating aflatoxin and thus fungus as a cause of breast cancer.[5]

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 words, over-acidity interferes with life itself. It is at the root of cancer.

Sodium bicarbonate medical treatments are the time honored method to “speed up” the return of the body’s bicarbonate levels to normal. Sodium bicarbonate happens to be one of our most useful medicines as it treats the basic acid-alkaline axis of human physiology.

The pH of our tissues and body fluids is crucial and central because it affects and mirrors the state of our health or our inner cleanliness. The closer the pH is to 7.35-7.45, the higher our level of health and wellbeing. Staying within this range dramatically increases our ability to resist acute illnesses like colds and flues as well as the onset of cancer and other diseases. Keeping our pH within a healthy range also involves necessary lifestyle and dietary changes that will protect us over the long term while the use of sodium bicarbonate gives us a jump-start toward increased alkalinity.

The pH scale is like a thermometer showing increases and decreases in the acid and alkaline content of fluids. Deviations above or below a 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 directly compromising cellular integrity. Conversely when the body becomes too alkaline from too much bicarbonate in the blood, metabolic alkalosis occurs, which can lead to severe consequences if not corrected quickly.[6]

Jon Barron presents a way of looking at pH that opens up one of the major benefits of alkaline water:

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.

Understanding this is important for two reasons: (1) it reveals one of the primary benefits of alkaline water—more “available” oxygen in the system and (2) it explains why alkaline water helps fight cancer.

The ocean, the mother of all life, has an average pH of about 8.1. The ideal pH for blood sits at about 7.4, slightly alkaline—not acidic. - Jon Barron

Barron concludes:

If you’re eating well and living cleanly, then yes, you want to drink water with a naturally occurring pH only slightly above neutral. However, if you are eating the typical Western diet, high in meat, grains, sodas, and sugars that acidify the body, then you have a different problem. Your pH balance is now so far out of normal that you must go beyond normal in the other direction to counter it. My recommendation for daily drinking water pH is about 7.5-8—depending on how acid forming your diet is. Long-term consumption of higher pH water should be reserved for special circumstances. The most famous mountain waters in the world, waters renowned for their healing properties, are highly alkaline. I’m referring to the waters coming down from the Himalayas, and specifically to the waters of the Hunza Valley, which have a pH that runs between 9 and 11.

One does not have to be a doctor to practice pH medicine. Every practitioner of the healing arts and every mother and father needs to understand how to use sodium bicarbonate. Bicarbonate deficiency is a real problem that deepens with age so it really does pay to understand and appreciate what baking soda is all about.

[3] One sample study is by Le, et al. (1986), in a French case-control study of 1,010 breast cancer cases and 1,950 controls with nonmalignant diseases, found that breast cancer was found to be associated with increased frequency of mold fermented cheese consumption.

[4] Going, et al. (1990) found that weddellite (calcium oxalate) crystals are present in calcifications found in the breast tissue of patients with breast cancer. Calcium oxalate crystals are formed when calcium binds with oxalic acid. Oxalic acid is a mycotoxin that can be produced by a number of different fungal species. Some fungi produce such large amounts of oxalic acid that they are used for commercial production of chemicals. Aspergillus niger fungal infection in human lungs produces large amounts of oxalic acid.

So how much soda do they recommend for cancer daily?

Report post

Dr. Simoncini in Rome uses it directly on tumors and it kills the cancer on contact. If the tumor can't be reached he finds the most accessible artery to that area and sends it in that way. Pretty amazing.

I understand. If I could reach my tumors, i would have killed them with coleys as well.

I remember my grandma who lived to 99, independently used to take a teaspoon of baking soad in water every evening for her heartburn. hmm. Makes you wonder.

Did I miss something? How do you use this? How much? What form? thanks

I share Lansing's questions. I always knew it was good to put in the tub when my kids got stung by bees, but this is a whole other thing!

I asked my doctor once about it, (primary care) many years ago) and he became alarmed, said it was harmful, can't remember why he said it was harmful. I told him my Grandma did it for 30 years, I don't think he believed me.

Good, hopefully it will either prove or disprove this so we can move on to effective treatments.

Thanks for reminding me! Just had mine! The recipe i use is 1 part aluminum free baking soda to 3 parts maples syrup. and take 3 tspns throughout the day. WHY NOT LADIES??

Report post

Oh and I find it pretty crazy that they are getting 2 million dollars to test something that costs $2 on the grocery shelf.....Wow, and it will probably take 4 years to go through trials, then another 5 to call it inconclusive, and by that time, alot of ladies will be dead. Still, wisdom goes beyond understanding so I hope this 'research' is not just wasting money. Even if these highly paid scientists concluded it ineffective, I would still use it anyway. The proof is in the pudding, I like to say:)

When I was growing up whenever my mom thought we were getting sick she would put one teaspoon of baking soda in one glass and about 1 cup of water and a teaspoon of lemon in the other glass. She would pour it back and forth until it fizzed up and then we had to gulp it down. It tastes awful! I will tell you I was never sick so it must have done something. She said that it would keep our systems more alkaline and we would not get colds and flu. She said her dad brushed his teeth with baking soda daily and never had a cavity. She had a science background in college so she must have gathered info during that time. She would be 98 if she were still alive. I am going to make a dose per day and start to drink it. I warn you plug your nose when you drink it down. ugh.

Much better than sodium bicarbonate is sodium selenite which is an inorganic form of selenium. It has been known for over 30
years that sodium selenite (Na2SeO3) can selectively kill cancer cells while causing no harm to normal cells.

Sodium selenite must be administered by IV injection by any properly trained naturopathic physician. It can not be taken orally
through the GI tract because it causes severe nausea. A sublingual tablet is being evaluated and the results are encouraging.

This is a very inexpensive treatment for every form of cancer. It works and causes no adverse side effects. There will be clinical
trials for this treatment when funding is available. For now, one can contact their naturopathic doctor and inquire about sodium selenite. One word of caution. Do not self-administer this treatment as sodium selenite or any other selenium compound can be toxic and can cause death at excessively high doses. A well trained physician will understand the safe dosage range and the details of the treatment protocol.

Yeah what are the long term effects of taking it too often? I would think it's the sodium content more than anything else. I forgot my Biotene toothpaste and have been using it while we're upstate this weekend. I had what felt like the beginnings of some mouth sores yesterday and today (after brushing and rinsing several times a day) and now I can't feel them. And it does settle your stomach fast. Mine anyway.

Lady's I was blessed to grandparents that all lived to 88, 89, 92, 95 and a great grandpa that lived to 99 and they all used baking soda for many things... It was not until recently when a Nieghbor of mine who is 84 returned home after taking care of her daughter who had tongue cancer... They had stayed in a hope lodge and she said the best thing she learned was something that she had forgotten about and that was.baking soda... She said it was suggested to her daughter... 1/2 a teaspoon morning and night and your good to go! I thought hmmm I remember my grandparents doing this, so I get my box of baking soda out, read the directionsand low and behold the box says to do the same!
I did some research and the inventors of baking soda Austin Church and John Dwight lived until they were 90+ so that says alot to me...mid it was bad for you I think they would have discovered it by now but instead it seems we have all forgotten about what Americas best kept secret can do for us! I feel great and I have done it every day and then skip a couple. You can get ph strips to test your urine to make sure your in balance.w,hen we are sick our bodies are acidic and baking soda raises your alkaline level and not much des ease can survive in an alkaline body... It works great as a deodorant if you dust it under your arm pitts as well. Bottom line your pee pee will smell better for sure and if it makes you burp it's gonna feel better... Good luck to you all and let me know how it goes for you...

I'm just taking 1/2 teaspoon in water morning and night.. The directions on the box say you can take up to 7 doses of that a day..

Wow! Im going to do some more research on this myself, thank u!

I have a friend who is extremely interested in nutrition, especially the acid/alkaline balance. I asked her about baking soda, and she said it worked but something better is some magnesium compound. I was half asleep when reading her note so I'll look it us and get back to you. She said the best things is Dr. Oz's shakes. They're full of stuff like kale that we think we don't like, but Char says they're delicious. She sent me the recipes, but I'm sure you can find them on his web site. More later.
