Baking Soda is Proving to be an Effective Treatment For Cancer

‘For baking, cleaning and deodorizing..’ and SO much more. It used to be common knowledge that baking soda could easily cure a common cold, as well as assist in numerous other ailments. What happened to all that information? This was not the first time I heard that baking soda was being used to cure cancer. I have come across people who have used it to rid their cancer and then I came across this written piece that was quite intriguing.

“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.”

Below is an article written from the book ‘Sodium Bicarbonate – Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment – Second Edition’ by Mark Sircus, AC., OMD. I felt it was a good idea to share this information so please be sure to check it out -with an open mind of course. It is understandable how this can seem fa fetched but there are a number of well known natural cancer treatments that are working today that mainstream medicine refuses to talk about.

“There are many reasons to use baking soda but one overall reason is that sodium bicarbonate is a natural substance that will not harm us, our children or the environment because is it not a chemical compound that effects nature in any kind of negative sense. Baking soda is actually a compound that is found throughout nature, in the ocean, in the soil, in our foods, and in our bodies. Baking soda is a neutralizer of many other compounds, which makes it extremely helpful as a medicine in the age of toxicity, which we are all presently passing through.

Life-threatening asthma in children is often resistant to treatment with bronchodilators and systemic corticosteroids. Recent research suggests that administering sodium bicarbonate—an ingredient commonly found in kitchens—in intravenous (IV) form can significantly improve pH and PCO2 in children with life-threatening asthma. Sodium bicarbonate can save the day when nothing else can. The only other substance we can say the same is with magnesium chloride, which when injected will save a person during cardiac arrest and pull one out of a stroke if given soon enough.

There has been work going on at the University of Arizona, using 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) This type of treatment has been found to “enhance the anti-tumor activity” of other anticancer drugs. This is very similar to the recently published research of injecting O2 directly into tumors where such direct administration of Oxygen also facilitated the action of chemotherapy.

This year these same researchers reported that bicarbonate increases tumor pH (i.e., make 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.

When it comes to sodium bicarbonate it is an open and shut case. It is already in wide use and has been for decades, even by oncologists who do not want their patients dropping dead too quickly because of the tremendous toxicity of their treatments. Sodium bicarbonate is used routinely to keep the toxicity of chemotherapy agents and radiation from killing people or from destroying their kidneys. In relation to bicarbonate, millions of people in the world either consume bicarbonate ions in drinking water or have been treated clinically with bicarbonate in hospitals, medical centers, or emergency. Sodium bicarbonate helps to save countless lives every day.

Dr. Boris Veysman specialist in emergency medicine at the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Jersey describes one emergency room experience: “The emergency department is always noisy, but today the triage nurse is yelling “not breathing,” as she runs toward us pushing a wheelchair. A pale, thin woman is slumped over and looking gray. Without concrete proof of a “Do Not Resuscitate” order, there’s no hesitation. Click, klang, and the patient has a tube down her throat within seconds. I do the chest compressions. On the monitor, she is flat-lining — no heartbeat. I synchronize my words with the compressions and call out for an external pacemaker. Pumping … thinking: Cardiac standstill … after walking in … with cancer … on chemo. This resuscitation isn’t by the book. “Get two amps of bicarbonate,” I say to the intern. The jugular line takes seconds, and I flush it with sodium bicarbonate. This probably will correct the blood’s extreme acidity, which I suspect is driving up the potassium. The external pacemaker finally arrives. Potent electric shocks at 80 beats per minute begin to stimulate her heart. The vitals stabilize.

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) lives up to the image on the Arm and Hammers box, it is the ultimate heavy weight work horse medicine that every healthcare professional and parent should be knowledgeable about and routinely using. When combined with other strong but basic natural substances like magnesium chloride and iodine one has at ones fingertips a trinity of medical super heroes ready to perform scientific medical miracles in a single bound.

We are talking about serious medicine when we talk about sodium bicarbonate. Earlier and more frequent use of sodium bicarbonate is associated with higher early resuscitability rates and with better long-term neurological outcomes in emergency units. Sodium bicarbonate is very beneficial during CPR.

Bicarbonate is present in all body fluids
and organs and plays a major role in
the acid-base balances in the human body.

Bicarbonate deficiency is the most unrecognized medical condition on earth even though it is extraordinarily common.Problems from acid pH levels (relative deficiency in bicarbonate ions) take a large toll from human physiology and the more acid a person gets the larger the problem for cell physiology. Every biochemical reaction is pH sensitive with enzymes being especially sensitive. Our diet plays an important role in maintaining appropriate pH levels in the body.

Most modern diets give rise to unhealthy acidic pH conditions. An imbalanced pH will interrupt cellular activities and functions to extreme levels as ph drops further. Excessive acidic pH leads to cellular deterioration which eventually brings on serious health problems such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and heartburn. The fact that the biological life functions best in a non-acidic (alkaline) environment speaks miles about the usefulness of baking soda.

“I have used intravenous sodium bicarbonate therapy mostly as a naturopathic treatment for patients who consistently react to allergens or that have chemical sensitivities. This is a great therapy during the Vancouver allergy seasons of spring and fall. The alkalinizing sodium bicarbonate IV can often immediately stop an allergic reaction, or asthmatic attack, since such reactions cannot persist in an alkaline environment. Some of my patients also get benefit from taking an alkalinizing drink every night to reduce their chemical sensitivity symptoms,” writes Dr Eric Chan. “All of my Vancouver and Richmond patients have tolerated this therapy markedly well.”

Uniformly, in ill patients, increasing the alkaline buffer of the tissues makes patients feel better. As mentioned above, this is particularly true in chemically sensitive patients, and can actually be a “cure” in the sense that we are increasing the body’s ability to react in a healthy way to noxious stimuli. If I use the intravenous sodium bicarbonate in such patients, it is usually given twice a week for a period of 4-5 weeks. Sodium bicarbonate is a very effective way of directly improving celllular health by making the tissue more alkaline,” concludes Dr. Chan.

Sodium bicarbonate loading and continuous infusion was
associated with a lower incidence of acute renal dysfunction in
cardiac surgical patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass.

Sodium bicarbonate is the time honored method to ‘speed up’ the return of the body’s bicarbonate levels to normal. Bicarbonate is inorganic, very alkaline and like other mineral type substances supports an extensive list of biological functions. Sodium bicarbonate happens to be one of our most useful medicines because bicarbonate physiology is fundamental to life and health. So helpful and elementary it’s even instrumental in helping sperm swim up and enter the cervical canal.

It is not possible to be a fully educated medical professional without coming up to speed on vital medical information about sodium bicarbonate. This book is full of contributions from universities, hospitals and clinicians who have for decades been researching and using sodium bicarbonate for many medical applications. Baking soda is an essential medicine, which no emergency room or intensive care ward would be caught without. This book represents a full medical review that combs through all corners of the medical universe to lay bare the full knowledge and scope of sodium bicarbonates use in medicine.

Everything I know about bicarbonate you should know and when you do, you will know more than anyone else who has not taken the time or has had the interest to fully research the subject or read this book. It’s an experience to know much more about such a basic vital substance than your doctors. Take the journey and sail through bicarbonate seas. Read and learn and then begin to think of what is the medical truth about sodium bicarbonate as a treatment for cancer.

This book also gives the keys to understanding that vast fraud and the intended rip off of labeling Carbon Dioxide (CO2) a poisonous gas. In these pages you will find the truth about CO2 because it is a great part of the secret about sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), which turns to CO2 in the stomach when mixed with water. As we shall see sodium bicarbonate, CO2 and Oxygen (O2) are all tied together. All three are essential for biological existence on planet earth. CO2 is no more of a poison than water.

Sodium bicarbonate (Baking Soda) is probably one of the most useful substances in the world; no wonder the pharmaceutical companies don’t want doctors or anyone else to know much about it. Sodium Bicarbonate is an important medicine – of the safest kind – and it is essential when treating cancer, kidney and other diseases.”

  1. What is this silliness about carbon dioxide being a poisonous gas? I’ve never heard that. I know Co2 contributes to global warming, and anyone who denies that is just plain stupid.

  2. Klaire labs makes sodium bicarbonate pills that raised my ph tremendously in one week. I wasn’t sick so I stopped but I know it works in case one day I need it for future reference.

    Does anyone know if it can cure hylior bactor palory ,yes i know i cant spell as i have dyslexia

  4. Update, I have been on a baking Soda regiment for about 2 months. I first started out with one teaspoon a day in a cup of water with one teaspoon of black strap molasses. I increased the baking soda one teaspoon a week until I was taking2 tesspoons perday with the same about of molasses. I put about 3 or 4 cups of baking soda in my bath. This is reallyhelps clean the skin and exfoliate. It also absorbs into my system. I watch the pH level using ph strips from walmart. So far no ill effects.

    I am also on a ketogentic diet which basically starves cancer cells of the only thing they can eat, glucose. You see you body will convert fat to Ketones which non cancers cells can eat but cancer cells are unable to eat. It is a targeted thearapy you can easily do. But it takes some major diet changes as in no sugar, no bread, no alcohol, very low net carbs moderate protien, and a lot more fat in the diet. Check out ketogentic diets for cancer.

    Thirdly, I would highly recccomend looking into cannabis. This is a miricle Medicine!, MAny people have reported reduced nausea after chemo treatment, Increased. Some doctor recomend taking 45mg/day (15 mg THC and 30mg CBD)of active Cannabinoids which can be gotten from licensed dispensery if you live in a State the has legalized it.

    Again, Check out this miricle Medicine.

    Bottom line is that unfortunately our doctors do not have every tool in their tool box. They are doing the best they can with what the FDA gives them. YOU need to research and find the diet, and every other supplemental treatment you can to help get rid of a cancer.

    Finally it is a huge waste of your time and energy to rail agaist some giant conspiracy. It may be there; but, right now you need to focus on getting healthy, not changing the world!

  6. I was diagnosed with no Hodgkin’s lymphoma in January.
    I am her today to to the miracle of Science and the use of Chemo therapy to treat and help me kill this disease.

    It is my firm belief that anyone who faces the realities associated with Cancer will choose the treatment that gives them the best chance of living unless they are suicidal or simply ready to give up.

    When you are put into this game for real you experience a paradigm shift in your reality. Things that you thought matter do not matter any more and the things that do are very very clear.

    One thing I can tell you is that if you intend to live you will do what you need to do.

    That being said, I would never rule out the use of something just because there is no officially recognized scientific evidence of it. Especially with something with as little down side as using a sodium bicarbonate treatment. I believe doctors truly do want the best for their patients and will give them what they need to survive. The only problem may be that they have been programmed not to be open minded about the possibilities of using some remedies. Huge amounts of money are being spent on these miraculous drugs so there is motive to suppress simpler less expensive solutions. On the other hand, There must be extreme pressure from the Medical insurance companies to find ways to keep people healthy with out it costing more. We need to believe that the Medical system is doing the best it can with the best science. But Science is a funny thing, Many times in history the current paradigm has been smashed. We must always be open to the possibilities and never ever close your minds to things that may seem to simple to seem real.

    It is clear from the studies that have emerged that there is something about the use of Baking Soda that warrants its further attention, Further, looking at the low risk to reward for its use as a supplement to mainstream treatments it would be extremely arrogant and stupid not to use it.

    I know If you were faced with fighting cancer or a loved one you took care of was fighting cancer you would use something that can only help!

    Sodium Bicarbonate baking soda is not a fake, it is real I try it my self for four week and have got great result back, so talk is cheap try it,

    • VeggieNut

      I’m currently using the molasses/baking soda cancer cure plus supplements on my 16 year old cat with advanced squamous cell cancer in her mouth. The outlook for this type of cancer is very poor. The Clindamycin/prednisone that the vet prescribed for her helped but only for a very short time and consequently it has to be repeated often. The molasses/baking soda cancer cure plus supplements seems to be curing her and without the side effects from a conventional treatment that can’t cure her anyway!

      • Alisa

        Hi VeggieNut, My cat has squamous cell cancer also in his jaw bone. Can you share what you are doing (dosage, etc.) for your cat? I would really like to try this. Thank you.

        • VeggieNut

          I I wish I did know the dosage for cats but everything I found about this course of treatment applied only to people. I did read if diarrhea developed when using this for people to back off a little and give less. I don’t know how often to give it either. Some days I give it only once and some days I give it more often but in smaller doses. I don’t always dilute it the same amount either. It may be that it doesn’t have to be an absolute, precise amount to work as I’ve read differing ratios of baking soda to molasses that people have used for themselves. This is all a totally new experience for me and I’ve been playing it by ear.

          When I mix this up I follow this recipe: One part baking soda and three parts molasses. Mix it in a saucepan and heat it on low heat, stirring briskly for about five minutes. Let cool.
          This makes a thick, gooey mixture which I use as my “concentrate” and I keep it refrigerated. To use it, I take out a spoonful of the concentrate and place it in a smaller container, like a baby food jar or small quarter cup or half cup size measuring cup. If I’m not going to add any extra supplements, I dilute this with warm water to a consistency that will be easy for my kitty to swallow and it also dilutes the dosage down to her size.
          Extra supplements that I now often add are: a fish oil capsule, CoQ10, Astaxanthin, MSM, turmeric, a children’s vitamin, & a B-50 complex vitamin. Some of these like the fish oil are liquids in gel caps so I use a pin to poke a hole in them so I can squeeze out the contents. I stir this mixture up with a toothpick. Since the added supplements also act to dilute this, I only add enough warm water so it will be easy for her to swallow. I use a syringe to administer it with.

          Now, when I first started with this, I didn’t add anything extra in. All I did was dilute my concentrate with water to adjust the dose down to skinny kitty size and it also thinned it down so she could swallow it. I’ve added additional ingredients that I felt could help her. This has been a progressive learning as you go experience.

          I’m now going to add another supplement, wormwood/artemisinin. This herb is supposed to keep the tumor growth in check and also to help prevent the spread of the cancer. Cancer cells take up iron more than normal cells. Artemisinin/wormwood is attracted to these high iron cancer cells and selectively goes to them. Once inside the cancer cells, it reacts with the iron and destroys them.
          The cancer that my kitty has is way in the back of her mouth and is probably also in her jawbone as well. It may be the best I can do is to try and control the cancer to slow it down so she can live as normal a life as possible.
          She has also been treated by the vet with prednisone and clindamycin since Oct. 2013. I started her on the molasses/baking soda treatment the end of March, 2014, about four days before I took her back to the vet due to her mouth being ulcerated, AGAIN! She was given a prednisone injection on April 2nd. On April 11th, there was no improvement seen in regards to the ulceration so I picked up some Clindamycin at the vet and started her on that. During this time, I continued on with the molasses/baking soda as well. A few days after starting the Clindamycin, I checked her mouth and the ulceration was much improved. I attributed this to the Clindamycin and decided to give her a break from the molasses/baking soda so I temporarily stopped it until I had used up all the Clindamycin. I gave her last dose of Clindamycin on April 21, and I then checked her mouth at this time. The dreaded ulceration was back!
          I immediately started her back on the molasses/baking soda. After two weeks I checked her mouth again and the red, inflammation was gone and it looked like her mouth was healing. A few days later, smooth skin was there were the ulceration had been.
          The time span for the effectiveness of the meds from the vet has now run out, and I’m now hoping that the natural, more holistic treatment I’m using will be sufficient in maintaining her quality of life.
          Best wishes for you and your kitty!

          • Alisa

            This is great information, thank you so much for sharing! I’m trying some natural therapies also, and I would like to incorporate this. I’m so glad your kitty has a had a great response on it. My cat just started having a hard time eating, I think because of pain and swelling under his tongue (the tumor is in his lower jaw bone). I’m hoping this will help him to be able to eat more comfortably again. Thank you again, and best wishes to you and your kitty as well!

        • VeggieNut

          I have expanded what I’m giving to Mandi, my kitty with oral squamous cell carcinoma. In addition to molasses/baking soda, I’ve added Artemisinin, Triple Complex Standardized Mushroom Blend (Shiitake, Maitake and Reishi), & Rehmannia Eight (for her kidneys). I now give her less molasses/baking soda as a sort of maintenance dose. She continues to remain stable with no further conventional treatment.

        • VeggieNut

          Hi Alisa,
          I wanted to update you on Mandi, my 16 yr. kitty with mouth cancer. It’s now been one year since this was discovered and I still have my kitty! This is remarkable considering the aggressive nature of this cancer. Earlier this month, she developed an abscess on the side of her head that has the tumor. The vet dispensed Clindamycin on Oct 1 which cleared it up but I was told that the outlook was not good as the abscess would tend to keep coming back. It’s still too early to tell at this point which way this will go. I am giving Mandi molasses baking soda several times throughout the day but in smaller amounts than when I gave it less frequently. I also mix in some Astaxanthin and CoQ10 as they are good anti-oxidants. Unfortunately, the Artemisinin gives her diarrhea and decreases her appetite so I don’t like to use it very much. When I do use it, I give it at night as I’ve read that it’s more effective then due to cancer cells being more active at night. I usually just give her this one dose per day due to Artemisinin not agreeing with her digestive system very well. I’m also giving her the triple mushroom blend of Shiitake, Maitake and Reisha Mushroooms standardized plus Maitake d-fraction standard which helps boosts her immune system. One of the hardest things to figure out for me is what dosage and at what concentration should I give these things. I’m beginning to think that this is determined by what is effective for the individual without giving too much to be harmful. The fight goes on.
          How is your kitty doing?

  8. urmila

    i am Urmila iam suffering cervical cancer stage 1B , i would like to know how much baking soda should i drink. Doctors said thay have seen in lung and bones.

    • Ken

      Look for on sodium bicarbonate it will help.

    • Anon

      1/2 teaspoon of baking soda mixed with the same amount of molasses in a cup of water at bedtime. After a week, take a whole teaspoon of each at bedtime. Then take the teaspoon of each twice a day. This is to make your body less acidic so DON’T DRINK SODA AT ALL. You want your Ph to be alkaline; not acidic so research alkaline producing foods.

    Hi, I know someone who is pretty advanced with cancer…her tumors r growing and fluid is leaking out…she is in so much pain and doctors said chemo isnt working…can using baking soda really do something if she is so advanced? If so, how exactly does she take it and why havent the doctors suggested this to her…she is dying

    • Mig Thefig

      Yes, have her take in a cup, 2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon molasses, and fill with water everyday twice a day. And then , make sure she change her diet to and Alkaline diet. cancer cannot live in an alkalized body. Google Alkaline diets for cancer and food. I would recommend she start taking a treatment of pure cannabis oil with that and she WILL beat this for sure

      • Some bodies can heal from chemo damage, some cannot.

    • Mike

      It’s all fake, they’re has been no clinical trials in this, if baking soda could cure cancer don’t you think everyone would be taking it and cure cancer for good ??

      • kerligirl

        I cant vouch for this for.every type of cancer. However, you are extremely naive if you think the multi BILLION dollar cancer industry will allow cancer to be cured. There are many natural ways to destroy cancer, but unless you’re involved in alternative practices, you will never hear of them.

        • money, the root of all evil and a cancer cure would cost a lot of people a trillion dollars

      • Who says the companies want a cure?

      • Is it all fake? I was told I had stage IV breast cancer in my bones 2.5 years ago. I was given 2 years to live. All I have taken from mainstream medicine is a estrogen reducer and my oncologist told me that he could not cure it, only slow it down. I immediately started taking baking soda and black strap molasses. I did not progress with sickness in any way, so I went to Mayo in Minnesota in 2012 and they told me that my scan was negative. The scan they used can detect cancer cells even before a tumor forms. I am still healthy today and my oncologist can’t figure out why. Neither can Mayo. Either I have something else, or the baking soda cured the cancer. My blood work has been normal except for the first 3 months after being diagnosed. Is it that simple! I still do baking soda every day to keep my body alkaline and test my urine with ph strips. I am only going to oncology 2 times a year because my oncologist can find anything wrong with me! And yes, oncology will tell you it’s a bunch of bull, but sometimes you have to go outside of the box and realize that big pharma and doctors want you taking those $30,000 to $50,000 chemo treatments. People wonder why they cannot afford medical insurance. This is only one of the reasons why!

        • Ursula

          Marsha, how much baking soda and molasses did you take and how often? My mum is very sick with late stage breast cancer spread to bones which was only discovered six months ago, I am desperate to find something that will help her.

      • Deb

        Mike, unfortunately not there is BIG money in cancer for the pharmaceuticals to the Dr,s who get a kick back from the pharmaceutical companies. The greed of man won’t let there be a cure for cancer through the “NORMAL” medical fields and to introduce simple things like changing your diet, to baking soda, to a host of other natural treatments that are working out there, would set a lot of people back financially that have been making mega bucks from “RESEARCH” for the last 50 or 60 years..

      • This isn’t known much, because the FDA will lose millions of dollars. If something as cheap as 2 dollars can cure cancer, the the chemotherapy and radiation which costs millions will not be needed. (Amygdalin b12 laetrile apricot pits) also cure cancer. And it’s all natural, no side effects. Like that other crap the FDA has certified.

        • Deb

          Amygadalin does work, but it’s not B12. It’s B17. There are side effects if one takes too much orally. I’ve been using it for 2 years and it has helped to keep my cancer under control. The max I take is 2000mg a day (in two separate doses), though someone who weighs more than me (100 lbs) could possibly tolerate up to 3000mg a day (in 3 split doses). More than that can cause stomach upset. One should work slowly up to the end dose (start with 250mg a day, for example). Caution should be taken with people who have low blood pressure and hypoglycemia, as I do.

          Going the IV route would be the most beneficial because much higher doses can be attained, but as far as I know there aren’t any docs in the US who do IVs of B17. You can buy the IV form but you’d need a professional to help administer it with saline. The apricot kernels can be used but because it’s a natural product there is no controlled dosage (some kernels may contain more B17 than others and vice verse), and it would require about 40 kernels a day–which is a lot. It’s easier to know just how much B17 you’re getting if you use the standardized extract available from Novodalin (which you can find at Amazon or at TJ Supply online). Make sure to buy that exact brand, as there is an imitation being sold which is spelled Novadalin. Look for Novodalin with an “o”.

          B17 is NOT a magic bullet, and it will not cure cancer by itself. Therapeutic enzymes like Wobenzym should be taken with the B17. I take 6 enzyme tablets with 1000mg B17. I also take a very long list of other supplements and minerals that I have determined would be helpful for my circumstances (many of them are anti-cancer substances). Everyone is different and each person with cancer has cancer for various reasons. If those problems aren’t addressed, the cancer will likely come back.

          The three most prominent causes of cancer are pathogens, nutritional deficiencies, and toxins like heavy metals and endocrine-disrupting chemicals found in everyday products around the house. All three aspects should be addressed. They will all be slightly different depending on the person’s situation (one person may have too many amalgams along with Lyme disease and vitamin D or magnesium deficiency, while the next person might have HIV along with deficiencies in iodine or selenium). It is when the body becomes too burdened and too deficient in vitamins and minerals that cancer can proliferate.

          Not every substance is suitable for all cancer patients because of our individual physiology. For example, green tea extract is an excellent anti-cancer substance but I don’t take it because it can stimulate weight loss and suppress appetite–and those are things I can’t allow to happen since I have cachexia (I take an organic whey protein supplement to help with the weight problems and to help my body produce glutathione). There are actually several helpful cancer-fighting herbs and supplements that I can’t personally take because of my issues with low blood pressure and low blood sugar. I risk taking the B17 because it is one of the hardest-hitting cancer treatments (I recently reduced my dose to 1000mg a day because the higher dose was bothering me), and I try to balance my blood pressure by taking cayenne every day–which is also anti-cancerous in itself. I closely monitor my vital signs and adjust my regimen based on how I feel and how my tests come back after adding in a new treatment (I use Navarro HCG testing).

          I came here today to try and find the correct dosing for sodium bicarbonate, but I’m not having any luck finding exact information as it regards cancer treatment. I will keep searching because I want to try this treatment next since the B17 is so expensive. As with the B17, I will start out slowly and work up to an ideal dosage, and I will test my cancer number before I start. I’m already taking a liquid mineral supplement called AlkaZone which is potassium-based, so I hope that will balance out the sodium intake. For now, I take three drops of Alkazone along with 8 drops of Himalayan salt brine (that I make myself) in every 8 ounce glass of water I intake because I was deficient in sodium. That combination alone has dropped my cancer number more than any other treatment I’ve incorporated–including the B17. It is obvious to me that I was severely deficient in minerals. It helps that the AlkaZone’s minerals are mostly bicarbonate-based, which is what your body is being helped with when one takes sodium bicarb. I will drop the brine solution when I start on the sodium bicarbonate treatments, but I will continue on with the Alkazone.

            Just to clarify on my first post, I am not the same “Deb” who left a comment on September 1, 2013. Sorry about that–I should have used a different username, I guess. I will do so this time.

          • Klaire labs makes sodium bicarbonate pills that raised my ph from 6.2 to 7.4 in 5 weeks. Simple pills you swallow with no baking soda powder that tastes very acidic. I wasn’t sick so I stopped but I know it works in case one day I need it for raising my ph when the need arises. If anyone needs more info let me know. Peter

          • Deb M.

            Thanks, Peter. Can you please tell me how many milligrams of sodium bicarb was in each tablet? I encapsulate many of my supplements because of taste aversion and was contemplating doing the same with the sodium bicarb.

            Also, how many pills did you take each day to get your pH changed that much?

            Thanks again.

          • Hello Deb–

            The bi-carb formula (as it’s called) ingredients have potassium (from 320mg potassium bicarbonate) and sodium (from 320mg sodium bicarbonate-nifo from the bottle)
            I’ve been monitoring my ph for years and lately it’s been a fight to maintain 6.6, even though I’m healthy and 52, no drugs and eat organically well, exercise, etc.
            I want to stay about 7 or neutral when I can, and the bi-carb formula is a ph-upper.
            My story goes like this- To make sure there were no side effects I took it slowly, and there never were side effects even with a higher dose. Anyway, the first week I took one pill per day (serving size is one pill) and there was no change in my ph. The second week was 2 pills per day and no change. The third week was 3 pills per day with hardly any change. After taking 4 pills in the morning with water for one week with my body ph still not getting more alkaline, I had to test their powder from the pill to make sure it wasn’t a ripoff. The powder from the capsule sure enough turned bluish-purple. Okay, so it’s like the real baking soda which is also blusih-purple. After taking 5 capsules per day for one week my ph skyrocketed to about 7.5. Fantastic, it works-so if you needs to ward off diseases with an alkaline ph then I’ve discovered the easy solution. Even though baking soda is really cheap I couldn’t handle the taste, and the bottle I get from amazon is also low price (250 vegetarian capsules for $20 with free shipping) I understand everyone’s situation is different, but I really believe a neutral or alkaline saliva and/or urine ph is important, and this really works but the time it may take to be neutral would be different in everybody.

            Deb- another thing I discovered was the power of systemic enzymes. I take Fibrenza and there’s no limit on what the body can handle!! And it’s terrific for eating away fibrin, killed my shingles virus in 2 days (that’s another story) and unintentionally made my body ph around 7.5 in a week. If you are interested in reading the testimonial I sent to the company then I’ll put it on here-Best of luck with your health!! Peter

          • Deb M.

            Thanks again, Peter. I think that’s great that the sodium bicarb pills you were taking included potassium; they obviously know that it’s important to keep those two minerals balanced. I will look into those. One reason your pH might not have gone up immediately is because your body was probably dumping the excess acids in the beginning and so the readings reflect that action.

            I do monitor my urinary pH when needed (for at least a week at a time to get a good average). I use a digital meter and test each urine of the night and day, charting the numbers the whole time and then finding the average for 24 hours and then for the whole week. I especially wanted to do that before starting the Alkazone supplement I mentioned because I wanted to see how effective it was. Although that supplement didn’t raise my pH by much, it did help bring down my cancer number on my test. My pH is very low–averaging about 5.5, though I’m hoping that’s gone up by now. I will take readings again for another week before starting the sodium bicarb, and I will continuously monitor my pH while on the bicarb.

            As I mentioned in my first comment, I do take therapeutic (systemic) enzymes. I take Wobenzym N. I’m a firm believer in enzymes for people struggling with their health. I also take MucoStop with the Wobenzym, which helps to clear excess mucous from the body. I take all therapeutic enzymes on an empty stomach when possible. Additionally, I use digestive enzymes with my dinners to assist my body in digesting food so it doesn’t have to work so hard at that. They’re expensive, so I only take them with heavy meals. They’re really not needed for fresh produce unless one has a hard time digesting the cell walls of veggies.

            Thank you again for taking the time to respond. Much appreciated.


            I just wanted to mention for anyone else reading along that sodium bicarb is also not a “silver bullet”, just as with the B17. They must be used in conjunction with other healing modalities and changes to the diet. The underlying causes (pathogens, deficiencies, toxins) should be addressed for long-term success.

            Anyone interested in taking the B17 should check out the book called “Laetrile Case Histories”, as it’s very helpful in understanding the medicine. It should also help allay any fears one might have about taking the B17 since there is a lot of disinformation about it on the net. “World Without Cancer” is another good book to read if one is interested in the politics of cancer, especially the suppression of B17.

    • Here’s a site to check out
      Great info there!

    • posted a video comment but dont know if it got through. please go to youtube and look up RICK SIMPSON HEMP OIL. its a cure for cancer and it is proven there are so many testimonials about it.

    • Vitamin b12 (amygdalin laetrile apricot pits) this also really cures cancer. Order the pills from amazon.

    About 4 weeks ago I started taking a 1/2 a teaspoon of Baking soda stirred until dissolved in a 1/4 cup of water to stop my leg craps. For the first time in 40yrs of cycling I now sleep through the night and wake up without leg cramps. Not one in 3 weeks !! Not even during the day either !! Amazing stuff ! … It also cleared up a sinus thing I had in my right nose and ear for the past 18 mos. All clear ! No more Zicam to breath. It Feels great ! Who knows what else it cured (or is curing) that I didn’t even know I had. :-)

  13. I love to use it on my hair also to help clean the scalp.

    • Mike

      I use it for a deep cleanse for my dreads, gets them really clean

  14. Pingback: Baking Soda cures cancer (and more)...

  15. Hazel

    I use it as a shampoo(diluted baking soda with water) and ACV diluted with water as a conditioner. Works like a charm and no chemicals in my hair and scalp. Cheap and safe to use for me and my whole family!

  16. When Bob’s Red Mill started putting “Aluminum Free” on their baking soda labels, it caused everyone to ASSUME that all other baking soda must have aluminum in them. They do NOT! It is baking POWDER one needs to be careful of.

    Not sure why Bob’s Red Mill started putting that on their label, but they did a bang-up job of convincing multitudes that baking soda has aluminum in it :P

    • It is so they can charge more to unknowledgeable people who are sick with cancer and desperate for a cure. Arm & Hammer is cheap dirt cheap. Bob’s Red Mill is 4X more expensive!! Its disgusting how people will be so greedy as to use other peoples illness and fear to make $$

  17. Wonderful, except I’d recommend a brand other than Arm& Hammer (they test on animals) I prefer brands like Bob’s or healthy brands at health food stores :)

    A lot of very interesting information and quasi-information here, perhaps notable more in the responses pro and con to the article than in the article itself as quoted. One subject I never noticed being covered here — though for all I know it was in the book (which in the context here could only be briefly cited) — regards the fact that essentially there are hundreds of different forms of cancer human bodies are capable of contracting.

    Yet in everything I read here, it seemed entirely the case or almost so that “cancer” was spoken of and characterized by professionals and us amateurs alike — as though it was a singular genus/species form (such as is sodium bicarbonate, or aspirin, or carrots – D. carota) which could be led into remission by a single product — that product claimed here to be sodium bicarbonate.

    Of course, my observation doesn’t necessarily have much to do with how effective sodium bicarbonate may be in some instances — in case, which ones? — or in all instances. But it did have me perplexed and wondering how much any of those commenters was really clear on the fuller subject of our conversation.

    Final point? Entering into insulting references to people who, regardless of whether or not they may be misinformed, are only trying sincerely to present their perceptions and explorations of truth in a caring way, isn’t generally useful. My wife is having a tragic time with a squamous cell form of cancer, so I can certainly understand some of the reasons that emotions can become inflamed by these conversations. Expressing that inflammation may not further reasoning thought, though, and could lead others to wonder if it is a sort of bullying behavior.

      have no idea what you said and you went so around the bush that you actually said nothing…

      • Sara

        Please don’t think, simply because you don’t understand what was said, that nothing was said. Maybe research it a little bit. Try thinking about the context, look up any words you might not be familiar with. To sum up, try to get better acquainted with the enormous capabilities available to you if you would only start using your brain.

    • Peter Padfield

      Peyton, you have raised an interesting point. Dr Simoncini, the oncologist who has most recently promoted sodium bicarbonate as a cancer treatment, asserts that bicarb needs to be delivered to the tumor site to be effective. Therefore it is all a question of what delivery mechanism is possible rather than the character of the specific cancer. Otto Warburg’s studies also indicate that cancers are all vulnerable to oxygenation and by extension they must be vulnerable to alkalization by bicarbonate.

  19. Pretty sure baking soda does not contain aluminum.

    Will Baking Soda help Acid Reflux?

    • Actually it does. If you use it once in a while. BUT be careful (talking from my own experience, i have serious reflux problems since early childhood). Using it everytime you feel reflux is gettiny your stomach used to it and it stops stabilizing acids by itself. Si in long term run, your acid reflux will show more often and stronger. If you have these problems, i highly recommend to start working on your diet: Eat breakfast, dont eat before sleep, dont lay down after meals. As breakfast, eggs or oats are great. Dont drink milk and dont eat baked stuff for breakf. (Someone uses water from pickles and makes the somach even more acidous, which goes against the basic logic, but in fact, it pushes the stomach to stabilize the acid by itself – but i’ve never tried that, only know that from other, i use diet and im ok)

      • I eliminated my acid reflux for a long time using 5 lac, a probiotic. When I stopped using it, it returned.
        Our digestive tract gets hammered every day if we consume foods laced with antibiotics, steroids, hormoes and chlorine. The food we eat kills off the good flora in our guts and candida can and does take over. Apparently, Baking soda kills off the Candida Fungus in our guts and in our bodies and allows the natural flora to come back if seeded with the use of probiotics.

    • YES!!!

    This article clearly supports animal testing and the suffering that goes with it. Arm and Hammer tests on animals. I don’t want to support this and will not buy their products.
    Isn’t it time humans were humane?

  22. Aubrey

    Does anyone know if pregnant women can do this?

  23. i have been juicing for two years after watching the film FAT, SICK AND NEARLY DEAD – and I started taking 1/2 tsp of baking soda in a cup of luke warm water for about 6 months – I haven’t been sick when those around me are – and it’s great for indigestion too.
