Clinical Evidence for the Efficacy of Baking Soda in Cancer Therapy
In 2009, the journal Cancer Research published a study which was among the first to explain how the alkalinizing effect of sodium bicarbonate is able to stop the cancer growth.
Scientists injected sodium bicarbonate into laboratory mice, and this helped them to determine how increased pH levels of the body affected with cancer can affect tumor growth.
The results showed that baking soda significantly raised the pH levels and affected metastases in mice with breast cancer.
The group of researchers also found that sodium bicarbonate raises the pH level outside the cells and not only within them. This is quite important, because it explains that sodium bicarbonate does not affect the cellular metabolism — even in conditions where it makes the microenvironment unsuitable for tumor growth.
Research also showed that baking soda:
- Reduces the involvement of lymph nodes in the transport of cancer cells
- Lowers the level of circulating tumor cells
- Reduces the involvement of the liver and thus, prevents the spread of tumor cells to other vital organs
- Inhibits the colonization of circulating tumor cells in other organs
The researchers also noted that direct injection of baking soda in other laboratory animals can inhibit the spread of prostate cancer, but unfortunately, this didn’t work with melanoma.
Taking into consideration these results, scientists are testing to determine whether the combination of sodium carbonate with cancer drugs can produce even better results.
In 2011 the journal BMC Cancer published a study conducted by a group of researchers who studied the effects of dichloroacetate and the combination of dichloroacetate and a bicarbonate salt on laboratory mice with metastatic breast cancer.
Dichloroacetate is a selective cancer drug that works in a similar manner to sodium bicarbonate. It increases the pH value of the environment around the cancer cells. It inhibits the breakdown of sugars and the production of acid in these cells.
The results showed that the combination of dichloroacetate, and the inexpensive household remedy, baking soda, did not show any reduction of the metastasis or tumor size.
This study proves again that sodium bicarbonate is a safer and much cheaper cancer remedy, and it is also more effective than dichloroacetate.
The Use of Baking Soda in Oncology
Although most oncologists do not recommend the use of sodium bicarbonate for their patients, they actually include it in chemotherapy, for the very same reasons. The combination of this alkalinizing agent and chemotherapy drugs protects the vital organs from the poisonous effects of those drugs.
Sodium bicarbonate increases the pH level around these organs and prevents the cancer from growing and causing any greater damage initiated by the drugs.
Dr. Mark Sircus, the Director of the International Medical Veritas Association, thoroughly explained the connection between cancer and pH values, and he also detailed the use of baking soda as a powerful anti-cancer agent in his book, Sodium Bicarbonate – Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment.
Dr. Tullio Simoncini is an Italian oncologist and he regularly uses baking soda in the treatment of his cancer patients.
His experience confirms that oral, intravenous and aerosol delivery of sodium bicarbonate are amazingly effective in the treatment of breast and prostate cancers. These treatments are effective for many other types of cancer, except cancer of the brain.
Even though Dr. Simoncini believes that oral sodium bicarbonate is most effective in the treatment of cancers that have affected the digestive system, many other oncologists and patients, including Vernon, provide strong evidence in the effectiveness of oral sodium bicarbonate for the treatment of cancer in other vital and deep-seated organs.
Dr. Sircus also supports and strongly recommends oral administration of sodium bicarbonate. His patients often debate whether they should combine baking soda with maple syrup, molasses, honey, water or any other drink. The normal and healthy cells are practically starved, so oncologists recommend using healthy energy sources such as honey, black strap molasses and maple syrup.
For the very same purpose Dr. Simoncini applies glucose intravenously, along with the sodium bicarbonate.
The Baking Soda Formula for Cancer
For the baking soda home remedy make sure you have some maple syrup, molasses or honey to use in the preparation of this remedy.
In his book Dr. Sircus documented the experience of one of his patients who combined baking soda and blackstrap molasses to fight prostate cancer with metastasis to the bones. At the beginning of the therapy, or Day 1, his patient combined 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of molasses. He also added a cup of water.
He continued with this dosing for 3 days, and he already noted some changes in the pH value. The pH of his saliva was 7.0 and his urine pH read 7.5.
The patient was encouraged by the results, and on day 5 he took the same solution twice a day instead of taking it once. From day 6 to day 10, the patient took 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 2 teaspoons of molasses twice a day.
By Day 10, his pH was 8.5. Headaches and night sweats were the only side-effects he had, which are similar to the side effects of cesium therapy.
The next day he had a bone scan and other medical tests. The results showed that his PSA (prostate-specific antigen, a protein that determines the aggressiveness of prostate enlargement and prostate cancer) level was down to 0.1, and when he was first diagnosed with cancer, his PSA level was 22.3.
Another way to prepare this baking soda remedy is to mix 90 teaspoons of maple syrup and 30 teaspoons of baking soda.
To ease the preparation, heat the maple syrup so it becomes less viscous. Add the baking syrup and stir for 5 minutes, or until it is completely dissolved.
This dosing is enough for about 10 days. Cancer patients should take 5 – 7 teaspoons per day.
However, be careful when using this baking soda remedy in the treatment of cancer. By sustaining high pH levels you can experience metabolic alkalosis and electrolyte imbalance. This may result in edema, and can even affect the heart and blood pressure.
Always consult your doctor before beginning this baking soda regimen. The advice of an oncologist who is familiar with these type of treatments would be a great help.
