Baking Soda And Cancer

Baking soda (Sodium Bicarbonate – NaHCO3) is a highly alkaline white crystalline substance. A salt composed of Sodium ions and bicarbonate ions, baking soda is widely used to raise/balance pH level of water in pools. It is also a disinfectant and effective fungicide against some fungus. Sodium bicarbonate is used in medicine as an antacid to treat high gastric acid levels, indigestion and heartburn. Also intravenous sodium bicarbonate is given in some cases of acidosis.  Not only that baking soda is also used in the treatment of cancer in alternative medicine.

Dr Tullio Simoncini – Pioneered baking soda use in cancer treatment

Dr. Tullio Simoncini is an Italian physician and oncologist who pioneered the use of Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in cancer treatment. Dr. Simoncini’s theory is that cancer is caused by the presence of fungus. Dr. Simoncini’s baking soda treatment for cancer is based on simple but solid scientific reasoning.  Baking soda not only acts as an anti-fungal disinfecting agent, it also raises the pH of the body fluids making the body fluids more alkaline. It is a known fact that cancer cells cannot survive in an alkaline environment.

Dr. Tullio Simoncini’s basic tenets behind his cancer treatment methods are simple:

Cancer thrives in acidic environments => Baking soda is alkaline. Consuming baking soda with maple syrup raises alkalinity of body fluids => Cancer cells die off when body fluids are alkaline

Dr. Tullio Simonicini was ridiculed in his home country – Italy for claiming that cancer could be cured using baking soda. However, a lot of people seem to have benefited from his sodium bicarbonate based treatment methods for cancer.  Dr.Simoncini treats tumors by identifying blood vessels that supply blood/nutrition to the tumors and injecting an intravenous solution of sodium bicarbonate into those blood vessels. He claims that sodium bicarbonate, when injected intravenously increases the pH in the tumor site. A temporarily raised alkalinity in the tumor site causes the cancer cells to die off, which in turn leads to gradual breakup of tumor and excretion of cancer cells as metabolic waste. Dr. Simoncini is the author of the book “Cancer is a fungus” in which he details his sodium bicarbonate based treatment methods for cancer. Dr. Simoncinis’ sodium bicarbonate cancer cure is well known in cancer related academic circles. Though many in the medical profession contest his baking soda based protocol, there are articles/testimonials in the internet claiming that baking soda has helped with cancers of many individuals.

Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) and black strap molasses protocol

Ingredients Required:

  1. Maple Syrup (Or) Black Strap Molasses (Or) Raw Honey – 1 litre
  2. Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) – Laboratory grade. Without aluminium
Black Strap Molasses

Black strap molasses are always preferred. If it is not available then maple syrup or honey could be used in the place of molasses. The pH of the saliva/urine needs to be monitored very closely while following this highly alkaline protocol. Though pH strips can be used for this purpose, pH meter is preferred as it can give more accurate readings. Also, the health condition of the patient needs to be monitored closely by a trained physician while following the baking soda protocol. Do not attempt to follow the protocol without proper medical supervision.

An outline of the protocol goes like this:

  1. Mix one tablespoon of baking soda and one table spoon of black strap molasses in a cup of water. Take the mixture two times daily before meals in the morning and evening. The mixture needs to be prepared fresh every time one takes it.
  2. Take three readings of pH of Saliva, Urine three times (morning, afternoon, evening) daily. Record the readings in a table with clear labels of date, time etc.
  3. As one starts taking the baking soda mixture one will see that urine/salivary pH raises gradually turning more alkaline.
  4. Keep on 1 Tablespoon baking Soda + 1 Tablespoon black strap molasses routine for a weeks time taking the mixture twice a day.
  5. If the urine/salivary pH reached 8.0, keep a close watch and try to maintain the pH between 8.0 and 8.5 for a weeks. Adjust the dosage of baking soda accordingly.
  6. If the pH has not gone above 8.0 after a weeks time, gradually increase the consumption of baking soda to 2 teaspoons + 2 teaspoons black strap molasses at a time.  This should increase the pH to 8.0 and above. Wind down the usage of baking soda to 1 tablespoon at a time once you successfully reach the target rage of 8.0 – 8.5.
  7. After maintaining the target pH of 8.0 -8.5 for a week, stop taking the baking soda + black strap molasses mixture.

Here the theory is that black strap molasses / maple syrup acts as a carrier for baking soda as the cancer cells are more hungry and tend to take/burn more sugar than normal cells. Sodium bicarbonate, by raising the pH and making the body fluids alkaline makes the cancer cells survival tough. As a final note, please do not attempt to follow this protocol without proper medical supervision.
