Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate is used as one of less known ways to cure cancer. It has been reported that 9 out of 10 cancer patients choose chemotherapy without exploring other less invasive options.
Chemotherapy is still used because it is lucrative to doctors and pharmaceutical companies. Moreover, it not that effective because it enhances growth of cancer and long-term mortality rates.
A $2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health has been awarded to Dr. Mark Pagel from University of Arizona Cancer Center in order to study the effectiveness of baking soda cancer treatment for breast cancer.
According to studies, increased levels of bicarbonate can impact the level of pH of acidic tumors without changing the pH of the blood and healthy tissues. It has been proved on animal models of human breast cancer that tumors became more alkaline and metastases were inhibited by oral sodium bicarbonate.
Dr. Julian Whitaker has successfully developed cancer treatment protocols which include nutrition and immune support program for cancer patients. This protocol is known as The Whitaker protocol. This protocol boils down to intake of 12 g of baking soda mixed in 2 cups water with a low calorie sweetener. Sip this mixture for one or two hours, three times a day.
Sodium bicarbonate is used as a treatment for kidney disease, diabetes, influenza and the common cold.
Baking soda is also known as cooking soda, bread soda and bicarbonate of soda. It comes in the form of fine white powder. It has a salty and alkaline taste. It is used in baking and as a tool to soften vegetable and to tenderize meat.
It can be used also as a cleaning tool. It is one of ingredients of toothpaste and it serves also as an antiseptic, acid-neutralizer, removes plaque and whitens and cleans your teeth. It can also be found in shampoos and deodorants
Baking Soda and pH Medicine
If your body pH is around 7.35-7.45 it means that you are healthy and that you can resist acute illnesses like colds and flues as well as the onset of cancer and other diseases. In order to maintain previously mentioned level of pH, lifestyle and diet have to be healthy.
Changes in level of pH can indicate symptoms of a disease. If the body is too alkaline, it means that it can no longer effectively neutralize and eliminate the acids. Excess acids are a direct threat to cellular integrity.
Benefits of alkaline water have been presented by Jon Barron. According to him, since cancer is related to an acid environment, the level of pH has to be increased in order to provide more oxygen in the cells of the body.
Alkaline water provides your body with oxygen and it helps in fight against cancer.
Use of baking soda in fight against cancer
Cancer cells have the ability to multiple and grow really fast. In order to grow, cancer cells employ carbohydrates and sugars to generate energy in the form of ATP. Lactic acid and pyruvic acid are also compounds from the energy production. These acids are gathered in the immediate environment of the tumor, as cancer cells are experiencing metabolism at a much faster rate. If the levels of extracellular acidity around the tumor are higher, metastasis of tumor develop faster. This means that cancer cells grow and spread rapidly in an acidic environment.
It has been proven that alkaline compound can raise the pH of tumors high enough to starve them and stop their development and spreading.
The best solution is to inject sodium bicarbonate in the tumor site but oral sodium bicarbonate is safer and can be used at home.
A study published in the journal Cancer Research in 2009 has been one of the first studies to confirm the effect of sodium bicarbonate. They conducted their research on mice and concluded that growth and spread of cancer tumors was affected by raising the pH of the organ affected by the cancer.
Based on this study it has been concluded that baking soda reduces the involvement of the lymph node on the transport of cancer cells; it doesn’t lower the levels of circulating tumor cells; involvement of liver and spread of tumor cells to other organs has been reduced and the colonization of other organs by circulating tumor cells has been constrained.
The Baking Soda Recipe
If you want to make natural cancer remedy at home you will need baking soda and maple syrup, molasses or honey.
The recipe is based on the experience of one patient who used it to fight prostate cancer which metastasized to his bones. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 teaspoon of molasses in a cup of water and take this for three days. Then, on the day 5 take this solution twice a day and from day 6 – 10 take 2 teaspoons of baking soda with 2 teaspoons of molasses and drink it twice a day.
When this patient reached day 10, his pH had risen to 8.5 and the only side effects experienced were headaches and night sweat. He took some tests on the following day and the results showed that the PSA level was down from 22.3 at the point of diagnosis to 0.1.
Another recipe involves mixing 90 teaspoons of maple syrup with 30 teaspoons of baking soda. You have to heat the maple syrup and then add baking soda and mix it for 5 minutes until it is fully melted. The amount of this mixture will be enough for 10 days. The recommended dosage for cancer patients is 5 – 7 teaspoons per day.
