Baking Soda Cancer Studies and pH Medicine

Published on May 2, 2012

(The Last Laugh)

Dr. Mark Pagel, baking soda and cancer researcher.

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 cancer treatment for breast cancer. In other words, clinical trials on the use of oral baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) for breast cancer treatments are about to start![1] Obviously there are people in the know who have understood that sodium bicarbonate, 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. 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 baking soda 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.

You have the power to open the door for a better health and understanding of your body! Here is the Key

Baking Soda and PH Medicine

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.

[1] Baking Soda Might Have Potential Against Cancer:

[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.

[5] Researchers examined human DNA from a variety of tissues and organs to identify and quantify aflatoxin DNA-adducts. Such adducts are considered to be proof of the mycotoxin’s presence in a particular tissue.Their finding? “Tumor tissues had higher aflatoxin-adduct levels than did normal tissue from the same individual.”

  • Michelle Saucier

    My name is Michelle. I was diagnosed with a T2 tumor on the back of my tongue where I can’t see it. It originated in the root of my left tonsil. I underwent a robotic surgery in September of 2016 to remove the cancer and was out of work recovering for a month and a half. When I went in for my follow up, the cancer came back on my tongue. My doctors have been pushing me to do chemo and radiation however because I had dropped my weight down to 102 lbs since my surgery, I knew that going through chemo and radiation would be way too invasive for me to handle. I wouldn’t be able to eat or swallow, I’d be on all kinds of medications to keep me from getting sick, and I refuse to be a walking skeleton looking like death so I decided to go the naturopathic route. However, the only problem is I can’t tell if what I’m doing is helping. I am taking the B17 500 mg. tablets 3 times a day, Paw Paw supplements, changed my diet to all organic foods, cut out refined sugars, juicing all my veggies and fruits, eating blackberries and blueberries, sprinkling turmeric seasoning on my foods and I also started doing the “maple syrup / baking soda” regiment but I am not noticing a difference. I still feel the tumor back there. It interferes with my speech. I cough up yellowish mucus all the time and this has been going on for a while. I was told by my naturopathic doctor that the phlegm is my body’s way of purging the toxins from my body. That’s all good but when does it stop? And when will I not feel that sore lump of a tumor in my throat any longer? I guess I need to know what I’m doing wrong and some advice on what to do? I was reading that cancer is like putting out a fire, you need many firetrucks working together to put out the fire just as you should do many things to cure cancer. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Have you tried hydrogen peroxide food grade solution mouth wash ? I’d say you can start with 5% and go 9% , but not to swallow !! Only mouth wash, you can get food grade on ebay

  • krishnan

    I am krish from Delhi India. Last year in May my mom was diagnosed with Oral Cancer Buccal Mucosa. She had cancer coz she was addict to tobacco and beetle nut and a kind of green leaf which they use it altogether for chewing, she has been taking this for as long as 25-30 years.
    And two years before my moms cancer revelation She lost her husband my dad who also went through prolong illness COMA due to cardiac arrest. These all led to my moms depression and not taking care of her health and all.

    So after her results came we went for Super speciality Onco Hospital where doctors advised Commando Surgery and reconstruction of her jaw with double flap plastic surgery. all went fine she got discharged in a month and she underwent concurrent Radiation and Chemo for 32 cycles of Radiation and 6 cycles of Chemo. which she completed at very tough situation. so after two to three months we did MRI and all other tests which shown no disease and she was clear of all Cancer from her body.
    But that surgery and radiation chemo all added to her body condition worsened she could not take solid foods any longer and she also faced speaking problem, due to facial reconstruction she also could not raise her right hand above shoulder. So its been almost one year 2 months she again diagnosed with new cancer on her tongue which doctor told us that its covering nearly 60-70 percent of tongue so they gave us surgery option and also told us the consequences of permanent tracheostomy and peg and disability to speak and they will remove all the tongue jaw portion where the cancer is lil spread and they also gave the option of chemo and radiation but there are very less chance that she will be cured by chemo and radiation completely.

    As i am the only one to take care of her I am lil confused to what to do next? Surgery seems very frightening as she has already gone through a lot and I dont want her to suffer more.
    So for the time being I have said to the doctor that we will go for Chemo.

    As I have started giving my mom 1tbsp Baking Soda with 3tbsp of Maple Syrup (drink) once in morning and once before going to bed. after that she feels very irritation in her mouth, according to doctor now she has stage 2 tongue cancer which is covering nearly her 60 percent of tongue.
    I am taking care of her pH with pH strip daily after after she wakes up she takes her saliva and urine pH which shown little improvement
    on day first its shown oral 6 and urine 6
    on day second its showing oral 6 urine 8

    I am confused why oral pH is remaining the same and urinal is showing improvment. what to do,
    Pls Dr Sircus help and suggest me what to do. I totally depended now on your help.

    Hello i was diagnosed with sever skin cancer and have a tumor, i saw the baking soda on youtube but then also started using Turmeric which i first bought at the drug store in capsules. I later bought the organic Turmeric at the grocery store in the spice area and tea tree oil. I drink baking soda once a day in the morning only, as it feels like an energy drink and take peanut butter with Turmeric once in the morning and once at night and i keep the tea tree oil on my tumor in the morning and at night, It reduced the tumor by 25% in 6 weeks and hoping to reduce it by 50% before i have it removed since its on my nose and close to my eye which will involved the tear duct. I had stage 2 cancer and am free and clear of cancer and i did not take Chemo, but i still went to the doctors, and had the surgery to remove the skin cancer and even when they took out a lymph note it was negative. The doctor just said you are one lucky guy as your cancer is gone. I guess i can honestly say i never believe this stuff you read on the internet but this time it worked. Also my dad who is in his 80~s said he uses baking soda in water for heart burn and has been doing that for 40 years as it works super fast for heart burn. Well i just wanted to share my story, and i noticed older doctors know some of this is true.
    One more thing is satin drugs that i took for cholesterol, it hurt my leg, hip and back, i threw the stuff in the garbage and told my heart surgeon i wont take it. He said just buy Red Yeast Rice as that is what its made from. I take red yeast rice and NO leg, hip or back pain

  • Mohammad Rehmat

    I was diagnosed of Non Hodgkin Lymphoma Cancer (follicular cancer) in 2011, i was admitted in the hospital for treatment, i received chemotherapy for several months, and in 2012 tests came out negative, means they have not detected any cancerous cells in my body. In 2014 cancer was back. I received another chemotherapy but it didn’t work. In April 2016 i had a CT Scan and the result was; that my cancerous lymph nodes were the size of between 1 cm to 1.3 cm. Then I came across with Baking Powder and Lemon therapy. I started taking it twice a day from last three months. Now, in the beginning of November 2016 I had another CT Scan. Doctors were amazed to see the results because there were no cancerous cells in my body. I was not taking any medications nor did i receive any chemotherapy. When I asked doctors; what do you think how it can happen, reply was “It fluctuate, and it happens some times”, they had no concrete answer.
    I was taking it by mixing Argo Baking Powder one teaspoon flat with 1 or 2 ounce of organic lemon juice twice a day, first, i was buying organic lemons, cutting into four pieces (with skin) do not take the skin off, adding a cup of water for each lemon, that means if I take 8 lemons I add it with 8 cups of water, and boiled it till the water is left with the ration of 1 lemon and half a cup of juice. Later, i started buying the organic lemon juice from Costco and continued the same thing, which i am still taking it.

    Another benefit of this therapy which i have felt in my body that I also had Fistula (its a kind of piles) from last 20 years. and its gone now.

    I suggest, please drink one or two cups of organic lemon juice, beside what you normaly take with Baking Powder.

    • casandra

      Mohammad i do not understand about the lemons.Please explain it a bit simpler.How do you know when the boiled water/lemons ratio is one and half a cup of juice?
      what about boiling one lemon and half with one cup of water? then add the Baking Powder and drink this twice a day?
      I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and i would try anything,as i have nothing to loose
      Thank you

      • Mohammad Rehmat

        Take one lemon cut into four pieces, add one cup of water, boil it till half a cup left or half a cup evaporate. I hope it’s clear, if not please do no hesitate to ask.

      • Mohammad Rehmat

        I normally boil it for 15 minutes and it’s just a guess work that half of it is evaporated. There is no strict rule about it. The purpose iis to extract as much as possible.

  • Michael

    My mom’s (86 yrs) breast cancer came back after 10 years. She has been complaining of shoulder and hip pain. Blood work showed on Sept. 22, 2016 her CA (Cancer Antigen) 15-3 marker to be at 691.2! (Normal range should be 1.0 – 30.0). Doctors use this test to monitor a person’s response to breast cancer treatment. Doctor said the number was off the chart and that the cancer has spread into bones, lungs and spleen. He indicated she could not do radiation or Chemo but instead offered medication for pain. (basically go home and die) He did however want a biopsy of the hip to see if it was the breast cancer recurrence. We changed doctors but had the hip biopsy done (it was breast cancer). Upon leaving the doctor’s office I put mom on baking soda to raise her ph to become alkaline and she kept her ph at 7.5 – 8.5 checking it every morning still as I write this. We also started juicing with Dr. Gerson’s green Juice therapy recipe to help rebuild her bones. Mom follows the baking soda and Gerson juicing religiously. We asked for another workup of the CA 15 – 3 marker test which was done on Oct 5th prior to meeting the new Doctor. We met with the doctor and he wanted to start her on meds. Problem was the meds were $10,032 for 21 pills and her part would still be $2,856 per month. She took one pill and felt terrible. Prior to this medication she had felt better than she had in quite a while. We also got the results of the new blood work after our doctors appointment and from Sept 22th till our Oct 5th re-test of the CA 15 – 3 (which was approx. 12 days) the test showed a count of 423.7. (267.5 pt drop). Since mom felt bad from the medication and her CA 15 – 3 test was dropping without meds I asked if she would try another 2 weeks without meds, which she agreed. Our follow up appt was Oct 19th and again we requested the CA 15 – 3 before our meeting. This time we had the results of our Oct 17th CA 15 – 3 test and the results were now 298.4 (another drop of 125.3) We had our 2nd visit with the doctor and he was taken back that she had not been taking her medicine but was impressed with how well she felt and the fact that her CA 15 – 3 had dropped 392.8 pts from Sept 22 to Oct 17th. I told him we would like to continue our natural cure but asked for his help in the monitoring. He agreed, but asked what we were doing? He had never heard of what we were doing, but said it seems to be working and agreed to use continuing. I told mom at the rate the CA count is dropping we should be below 30 in a couple of more weeks. We have a follow up visit on Nov 16th and getting blood work done on the 14th. If everything continues as we are, I truly hope the cancer will be gone in 53 days! Also, mom no longer has shoulder or hip pain. Our fingers are crossed and not bad considering the first doctor said “nothing we can do for you but give you pain pills”. If her Nov 14th CA results come back below 30 or even close we have beat Cancer in less than 2 months!

    • Diane

      I read with much interest about your mum – Michael. its the 19/11/2016 and wondered how her results were going for the CA 15-3 marker and hope it is going down. Hopefully it keeps going down. – which I believe it will. She has done very well with the alt. treatment. Beats what the doctors offer! regards diane

    • Michael, how did the Nov. 14 results come back? Please let us know.

        • retired trucker

          I think she passed on, but she beat the cancer earlier. You should do a search for mms testimonials and read read read.

    Hi, I am trying to save an old neighbor’s life. He has stage 4 cancer after being in the hands of modern ‘cancer doctors’ prescribed chemotherapy and radiation to the tune of about $100,000. Now they’re putting him on a lower paying insurance plan because they don’t think he will survive. I would like to buy your two books, sodium bicarbonate and treatment Essentials, but the last thing I want to do is pay $34 that I can’t afford for 2 ebooks which basically cost you nothing. Will you take $5 as I could afford that?

        If it is all the guy can afford, fair enuff, but for goodness sake do not say the following, “for 2 ebooks which basically cost you nothin” I am sure the good doctor put in many many years of study to conclude in the publications he is able to produce today, “Cost him nothin” I think you should give your head a shake and see if it rattles Justin, ok Brian.

    Hello Maggie, Peanuts are generally associated with A fungus. If you open a peanut, it may show some blackish area. I did knew about this fungus but wasn’t aware that this fungus itself could be the cause of cancer. It’s better to check the peanuts and purchase well chosen peanuts of good quality. they should be clear from any fungal growth.

    • Maggie

      I was speaking of the brand names. Most people can’t see the peanuts before purchasing the in store product.

  • James Peters

    From PubMed 25918920 ”The claims that laetrile or amygdalin have beneficial effects for cancer patients are not currently supported by sound clinical data. There is a considerable risk of serious adverse effects from cyanide poisoning after laetrile or amygdalin, especially after oral ingestion. The risk–benefit balance of laetrile or amygdalin as a treatment for cancer is therefore unambiguously negative.”

    Thanks, Very interesting. Walter Lasts “Magnesium Chloride” recommendation has worked wonders for me.I have enough faith in him to give it a go. It’s a bit like using Lugols Iodine. They scare the hell out of you with their propaganda then you find out people have been using it safely in large quantities for nearly 200 years, and probably will have to again when antibiotics stop working.

    My name is Jim Everman, I had a PSA of 87 and Gleason score of 9, So I did the baking soda and molasses cure for the period of 10 days then skipped 1 week then did the same cure again for another 10 days, finishing just 2 days before my PSA test I was to have on Dec 2 2015. Before I did the cure my PSA was 87 and after the Dec. 2 PSA it had risen to 95. I follower the procedure very correctly each time for the 10 days, holding the PH each day at 8.5 to 9, for the last 5 days. So can any one tell me why it did not work for me. Any advice anyone can give is highly appreciated.

      • James Peters

        From CRUK: ”At the moment, there simply isn’t enough evidence to prove that cannabinoids – whether natural or synthetic – works to treat cancer in patients, although research is ongoing. And there’s certainly no evidence that ‘street’ cannabis can treat cancer.”

    • oldtimered

      8.5 to 9.0 pH for an expanded time is harmful to the body.
      7.0 to 7.5 is what you were looking for.
      I don’t know how harmful or if that is why your tests did not go well. Also 10 days or 20 days is a short period of time and the tests may show activity from the past as well as the day of the test for your cancer.
      Get the pH down to 7.0 to 7.5. Rather than let is get to 8.0 or 9.0 pH let the pH drop into the 6.0 to 7.0 range before taking baking soda or take less and hold it in the proper area. Get the pH test strips at the health store and try again.

      Hi, I have a PSA at 450 and Metastisised. Just discovered, and awaiting biopsy. I just started the baking soda/mollases. Any thoughts? Thanks, Keith

        biopsy will spread it thru the body….sorry bro

    • Divine1

      Check out the youtube on a man early 70’s maybe who also followed baking soda/molasses concoction…heated just enough
      to dissolve ( 1 tsp. of baking soda) 3x/day. The cancer was gone in 3 months! PSA of 87/95 what’s the difference! As a retired
      lab guy, the higher the numbers the more fluctuation is expected in the results…don’t check it every 2 wks, check it every 2 months. Always remember you didn’t get sick in 1 day! This is a slow process, esp. involving the prostate. The faster the cancer grows, the more acidic your body is. It’s like feeding a plant the proper nutrients (fertilizer), the faster the growth (cancer). So the question is… is it the type of cancer responsible for the fast growth or is it the body (environment) which it feeds upon? I suggest get into juicing, light exercising if possible and RELAX!!! Just recently I bought an alkaline ionizer machine by Bawell 2195 model; might want to check that out. There are articles by a Italian oncologist Dr. Tullio Simoncini that might interest you. If Christian, remember God is in control!!!!!!!! Don’t give up HOPE my friend(s) also here at the MB, because hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible. God Bless!

    • Grace

      I did molasses and baking soda,for candida overgrowth. I never heated it because heat alter things and changes the chemical composition with some things. So, I just used cool water in glass with baking soda and molasses. For prostate cancer a doctor stumbled on cure recently , he bombarded it with testosterone Of course it takes forever for study to get funded etc.. and sometimes I think this is done on purpose so pharma can keep making money

Now recent PET CT shows that cancer has recueent on same place and some suspection in colon and lungs also. our Dr. advise for chemo which will start from 1st November 2015 again.
    Can i use baking soda recepie for her treatment? what would be the receipe and doses for her ? she is just 50 years old.

    will sodium free sodium bicarbonate lower body ph

    • We haven’t investigated the variously advertised brands. We know potassium bicarbonate will lower pH.
      Claudia French

      • mymagic

        Hello Claudia, please confirm whether you mean Potassium or Sodium.

    • oldtimered

      How can it be sodium free if it is sodium bicarbonate?
      The body needs sodium just as it needs other minerals. If you keep the magnesium and potassium and selenium and zinc up along with a good multi mineral pill dose everyday the sodium will be in line and not as big a worry as some say for blood pressure. In fact magnesium and potassium and other minerals can keep migraines away and keep blood pressure in line.. Forget statins and other drugs that harm the body and get your minerals up and you won’t have to worry about a little sodium.

    I was diagnosed with gout can baking soda and maple syrup mixture help?

    • There are a number of things on Dr. Sircus protocol that will help in Gout. Most sufferers of gout are found to be magnesium deficient so increasing magensium would be essential. Sodium bicarbonate will also help and pH needs to be checked to determine the amount needed .
      You can find what has helped some people with Gout at the EarthClinic site on Gout:

        earthclinic is amazing, I was able to help a COPD sufferer get better, not cured but lots better

    • Mona

      Why dont you try amino acids? Gout is a build up of uric acid and that causes pain. The amino acids will remove the uric acid… Do you a liver problem?

    • Is there anything in the Maple Syrup that helps?

      • retired trucker

        no, not really, it’s just the sweetness, same in molasses…….the idea is, the sweet draws out the fungus/ or pick a name, and the bicarb does its’ thing on it, til the next treatment……if you read enuf, you’ll see that theme is one of the common. themes running thru the various sites. just remember, there is more than one way to do a thing, one just needs to pick one, and do it.

  • sandy

    When and how much sodium bicarbonate should you take if you have low stomach acid?
    You have stated not to take it with food. Should it be before or after a email?

    • SB is best taken on an empty stomach……one hour before a meal or one to two hours after a meal. Follow package directions and do not exceed maximum recommendations.

    It’s worth trying ozonated water, it kills viruses, bacteria and fungal infections. Look it up on here, there’s a man who states that his wife recovered from cancer by drinking just one glass of ozone water a day. I drink it and it’s very good at alkalizing the water. Then there’s food grade Hydrogen Peroxide which is used by cancer treating hospitals in Mexico, you can buy this in capsule form and sublingual drops.

    I noticed in this article a comment about Aspergillus niger. A friend with cystic fibrosis has trouble with the pork derived lipase in creon forte enzyme medications. We were looking at trying a non-animal sourced lipase and these all appear to be derived from Aspergillus niger. Is there any risk of fungal infection from lipolytic enzyme products from this source?

    • Sorry we cannot answer this as we do not know what the risk is but it makes sense to be cautious if she is sensitive to aspergillis.
      Have you tried contacting Doug Kaufman from Know the Cause? He is more knowledgeable about these fungi and how they are used in our daily foods and medicines.
      I see that some people on the Internet are saying that there are enzymes properly filtered that do NOt have traces of aspergillis in them even though they were derived from aspergillis.
      You might do a search on this : enzymes that do not contain aspergillis
      Here is one website I found:
      We cannot vouch for any of the sites they recommend however. Perhaps pancreatic enzymes would be better for you. Most plant based are derived from aspergillus.

    Cancer update, Baking soda, keeping my ph above 8, ip6 4 pills 3 times a day, apricote seeds, Pau d Arco, Essiac tea, Tumeric, massive vitamins, cancer diet, Graviola, 35% food grade peroxide, green foods, strickly raw veggies and carrots juiced, when I eat any fruit or veggies I also eat the seeds. Water and carrot juice is my only beverage. Excercise, I work outside (am a zoo keeper) so pleanty of sun and fresh air. Tumors still growing, surgery has been changed to next week the 18th

    • Dear Ivona,

      So sorry to hear this, especially since you are doing so many of the right things. However there may be some other things that can help you avoid surgery and you should consider a consultation with Dr. Sircus to find out how to use CBD, LiveO2 and other things on his protocol that seem to be missing from your explanation.

      Budwig protocol–flaxseed oil (omega 3) and sulfurized protein (safe, organic quark or cottage cheese) once emulsified together carries oxygen through cell membrane initiates an ROS response in anaerobic cancer cells and they die. Omega 3s also provide for proper EFA response. Cells then function properly. Eliminate all sugar, meat, poultry, and diary ( with exception of organic, safe cottage cheese/quark). No eggs, no chicken. Poultry consumption highly correlated with B-cell cancers, penis cancers, diary workers. (NHL, HL, Lymphomas).
      Garlic (sulphur) , cacao (magnesium), brussels sprouts, broccoli, alkilizing baking soda, sunshine, massage. Omit carrots. Eliminate high glycemic foods. No sugar. Are you in contact with animals? Pesticides? Zoonotic diseases?
      Google: indole3carbinol and sulforaphane, which are derived from cruciferous vegetables–Brussels sprouts, broccoli flowers, watercress. In my opinion, whole, natural foods are better than extracts.

    Hi, my sister was diagnosed with avarian cyst and fibroids, can baking soda shrink them?

    • Mona

      No, baking soda is useless for cancer and anything else. Its only good for cleaning your kitchen sink.

  • Ivona Goe Holm

    I have had 5 different types of cancer 6 times. Ductal Breast cancer twice, melanoma, Mediastinal Large B Cell, Basal Cell and now Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. I only did surgery with the breast, and melanoma. I used 35% food grade peroxide to burn off the basal cell and I went through chemo with the blood cancer ( B cell ). I will never do that again. It was painful and I have so much damage from it. I was supposed to do 8 rounds, I could only do 3. It put me in the hospital so many times, plus chemo causes cancer. I had to sign a waiver saying I would not sue if I came down with a distant cancer. Any way I am now ealing with ACC which is rare. This is what I have done so far Essiac, Zeolite, Baking soda, injested food grade peroxide, eaten apricot seeds, went on a raw diet while doing these treatments, took the graviola and just about everything else that is on the cancer tutor site. Nothing is working. I am now going to try the ip6. I have spent so much money to try and find my cure…………

    • casandra

      Try Burwig protocol. If you can afford it discuss with Gerzon institute if they can help you ( as chemo is not advisable as it cause cancer)

      How often do you get your bare feet on earth? You have no sugar in your diet? sugar includes grain products, particularly refined wheat flour. You have been taking protease enzymes along with the apricot kernels? … not giving medical advice, just interested to know what you have been trying.

    • bm080960

      I am not sure where you are at this stage. But one thing you can look into that is way better treatment than chemo is Ozone Therapy. The specific treatment or delivery system that infuses oxygen in cells is called “Rectal Insufflation”. Like chemo it is an oxidizing treatment but it is selective with no side effects and does not poison the body. It only kills cancer cells and helps other cells get better through oxygen. The technology behind this is well researched and has been around for decades. The leading researcher in this field is Dr. Robert Rowan (in the USA)… he practices in California and has a you tube channel that allows you to see results of his treatments. Call his office and get some advice on this approach.

      According to Dr. Robert G. Wright in his book “Kill Cancer not Patients” he indicates that If you have undergone chemo, radiation and surgery (the big 3), then you need to take added measures to remove the remaining toxins in the body. Statics show that most chemo patients (about 97%) are hit with cancer more aggressively the second time around due to damage caused in the body by radiation and chemo. The effects occurs within 5 years of the treatment. That is because the cancer along with the insidious side effects of the toxins from chemo and radiation is still present in the body. Good luck.

  • billy Mac

    My dad has advanced neck cancer – I’m interested in the continuing studies of Curcumin(Turmeric) as a way to reduce pain/ block production of/ reduce and kill cancer cells without side effects – I’ve read that a compound in black pepper can massively increase the poor absorption of curcumin when consumed – also that a topical cream/ fluid using DMSO as a carrier and dissolver for the curcumin works v well – obviously it will stain the skin bright orange yellow. Anyone tried these out yet?

  • Mandy Pannack

    I’ve just read an article on the Healthy Holistic Living website called

    “FDA finally admits chicken meat contains cancer-causing arsenic”

    I have for many years believed that chicken meat in a major cause for the increase in cancer cases.

    My question is, will drinking a glass filtered water with a teaspoon of baking soda diluted in it, daily, help clear this arsenic from the body. If not, is there anything else you can recommend?

    Many thanks and kind regards
    Mandy Pannack

    • Hi Mandy,

      baking soda can only help and a number of other substances have reportedly assisted in removing the arsenic from our body. Arsenic comes not just from chicken but often from rice and rice products and from fruits or juices. Recently there was a report that apple juices contained arsenic.
      Some of the things that will help remove arsenic are: increasing intake of vitamin C, iodine, selenium, sulfur containing foods, alpha lipoic acid, and even chelation under adequate supervision.

    The chemistry of the process is EXACTLY WHAT I CANNOT FIND in your article, or any other that addresses the issue of acid base balance on the body. For this reason, I cannot place any scientific belief in this process. Ingesting alkaline water/magnesium/sodium bicarbonate, etc will increase the ph of the gastric contents, but no one addresses how the body doesn’t correct this imbalance. I’m a critical care RN, and am very familiar with how the body works to keep a tight balance on ph in the circulation, and I cannot understand how this can be overridden simply by ingestion of alkaline materials.

  • Konan1256

    Alpha Lipoic Acid -(ALA) is also worth looking at, we all produce it in our livers and it is a potent infection fighter, ALA is converted into Glutathione one of the body’s most powerful antioxidants, it is one of the few that can penetrate the blood brain barrier and recycles vitamin C and E within the body. ALA in the correct dosages has the ability to turn off bad genes or stop them from expressing themselves. ALA, also protects the body from some of the harmful affects of radiation. ALA heps with the break down of sugar for the production of ATP the fuel produced by the cells to run the body, without adequate ALA cells cannot utilize energy and will eventually shut down. It Is also a potent detoxer of heavy metals and other poisons within the body, Burt Berkson author of “The Alpha Lipoic Acid Breakthrough ” describes how he cured patients of deadly mushroom poisoning using ALA. ALA’s powers don’t stop there :-)…. It can lower high blood sugar in people with diabetes who have very high blood sugar……, however its important to note that if your blood sugar is normal or low you don’t want it lower, so if you are taking ALA make sure you take Chromium Picolinate, ( Chromium Picolinate regulates blood sugar) if its too high it lowers it if, its too low it bring it up to Normal, by making insulin more efficient Chromium helps to direct many immune functions such as stimulating interferon and T Lymphocyte production, cells that destroy infections. Selenium is also powerful against cancer, it increases the level of glutathione in the body, which increases the power of and influences the development of the bodys own cancer fighting cells…. Vitamin C ( Magnesium Ascorbate-, non acidic form of vitamin C ) , Vitamin E also have cancer fighting properties…………………Turmeric ( and especially Curcumin its derivative ) have been very successful in treating many cancers……. PAU D’Arco- South American Herb from Brazil….. antiparasitic, anti viral, lymphatic purifier…..helps to eliminate boils, abcesses, tumours etc – Cats Claw -(Uncaria Tomentosa ) also from South America is very potent as an antiviral- anticancer.——- Olive leaf ( each 5ml spoonful is equivalent to 5000 mg of vitamin C…. It fights disease, is a powerful immune booster, very effective against cancer and severe viral conditions, in basic terms it takes the energy source away from the pathogen, virus or tumour letting the immune system take over to finish the job… taking the engine or power leads out of your car,,,,,inactivates the invading pathogen or tumour….-Stinging Nettle- in a tincture has many beneficial properties too and is a potent Lymapthic purifier arming your body to get rid of toxins.
    Hope some of the information helps 🙂

    Hello all,

    I am neither a cancer survivor, victim, nor even on this site for cancer, but I read the discussions and thought I’d add some input.

    I do however have a viral issue which has me very often looking into acid/alkaline diets and the like..

    From all that I’ve gathered (and self tested), these seem to be some very important factors to take into consideration.

    1) must have a high alkaline diet. Obviously. I’d say its best to stick with fruits and vegetables. Many lists online.

    2) it would be advised to keep the sugar very low, but sugar supplies other (good) functions in the body. I can’t recall off the top of my head, but I think it’s only fructose that supplies energy to brain cells.

    3) look into the vitamin B17. Basically it apricot seeds. I’ve read a lot of info about people curing their cancer with this and there are natives in some country (hunzas, I think) that eat apricots and the seeds and are said to never get cancer…add live sunstantially long lives. I suppose the b17 is ingested by the cancer cells because it’s bound to glucose (or something like that), then the b17 kills the cell. So eat up. There’s much information that claims taking b17 is toxic, but I assure you, I’ve eaten many apricot seeds before, and …well…I’m sitting here typing.

    4) I think the sodium bicarbonate would be very beneficial (of course on a limited time frame), but there are also many other alkalizing methods such as alkaline drops, that wouldn’t give you too high of a sodium intake (if that’s at all a concern). I would suggest lower the ph by decreasing the amount of NaHCO3 after a week so it’s still alkaline but not as much.

    5) I’ve read also a lot of good info wit essiac tea.

    I think the true cure lies in the b17, in the apricot kernels. They can taste bitter, but who cares? Right? I’ve read many testimonials about b17 and I think it is scientifically proven to kills the cancer cells. I think there’s some misguided information being spread about b17 being too toxic for humans to ingest, but I believe (as many others) that b17 is only toxic to cancer cells.

    Well, I hope I helped and I hope people the best.

    Remember don’t be too alkaline and cause alkalosis. And you probably want to eat about at least a handful of apricot kernels a day, spread out throughout the day.

    God bless.

  • $2 million is enough to have the results sabotaged. I bet that sugar will be left out of the protocol so as to starve healthy cells of the sugar they need.

    The protocol that works is to build up to 2 teaspoons of baking soda with 1 tea spoon of molasses or maple syrup in a cup of water three times a day.

    cancer was created by the evil scientists, a well planned that they can introduce synthetic medicines that people will cohere into it until they die while giving off all their savings to this pharmaceutical companies which owned by these evil group…so basically if you need cure then go natural..we’re all created naturally not from chemicals…

    For one thing, you talk about physical matter as having electromagnetic effects (altering pH). This is a bit of a small detail really, but energy has a variety of forms, one of which is called “matter.” Matter is an electromagnetic effect. Matter does not cause electromagnetic effects.

    Please be advised: do not take baking soda if you have a high blood pressure problem..Each 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda is equal to 150 mg of salt! That is up to you to make a decision as well as discuss it with your doctor.

    How do one use it. Can you please tell me. HOW DO I MIX IT AND ?AND HOW MANY TIMES A DAY AND ALSO HOW MUCH DO I HAVE TO DRINK AT A? TIME

  • Retro

    Hi there,

    I get a lot of intestinal complaints and reflux so am looking to start taking the twice
    daily bicarb and lemon water mix and will get some Ph strips for urine testing.
    Just to clarify, is it ok to take this twice daily long-term, or only for a
    certain length of time? I was wondering how you would recommend making sure that
    I don’t become too alkaline? How often should I Ph test, and if I am too alkaline
    at any point, at what Ph level should I begin taking it again?

    Many thanks

    • You are better off taking it short term…..long term use (unless only a very small amount such as 1/8 or 1/4 tsp per day in a gallon of water) can have some consequences such as folic acid deficiencies or digestive enzyme deactivation. Please check your pH every day and deal with the root cause of your digestive problems and use the bicarbonate to jump start getting more alkaline in general. Chcek pH daily and keep ph around 7.3.
      Adjust the amount you are using according to average pH readings over a few days time and don’t judge by one reading alone. pH levels can change rapidly from moment to moment and can even be affected by emotions, simple thoughts of food, sights, smells etc so do daily or twice daily pH testing of your urine or saliva and note the average over a few days time.
      Study the chapter in the bicarbonate ebook on cautions and contraindications for sodium bicarbonate use. If pH consistently stays too low….under 6.5 or over 7.5 change what you are doing in terms of dosage or dietary actions. Nutrients including minerals are not properly absorbed or utilized if pH gets under about 5.5. You will have to feel your way around in terms of how much to add or decrease of the sodium bicarbonate to make a change and please allow a few days for the body to adjust.
      Make sure you are also making dietary and lifestyle changes so the need for long term bicarbonate use is decreased.
      Drinking magnesium bicarbonate water will be effective for long term use and can be used as your regular drinking water. See:

      Claudia French

    • Retro,,

      Find the root cause of your intestinal problems. Use the baking soda short term, check pH daily but go by averages of a few days readings and not just one reading as our pH changes rapidly even in response to simple thoughts. Keep pH as close to 7.3 as you can. adjust your amounts of baking soda according to these readings.
      Long term use of baking soda unless in very small amounts can do damage to digestive processes and may cause folic acid deficiencies.. Best to make the necessary life style and dietary changes to remain more alkaline.
      If pH consistently stays over 7.3 stop the baking soda and resume once pH drops back down below 6.5.
      Read the chapter on cautions in the sodium bicarbonate ebook. While some people can take bicarbonate daily, for others there can be negative consequences. Find the cause of your problems.

    My Son CJ was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome when he was 11 months old..(minimal change) The Medication they have him on has horrible side affects.. The steroids’ I was wondering if he can be tx with sodium bicarbonate? He is 5 years old.. I have recently taken him to a homeopathic Doc which the others doctors frown on and he does cranial therapy 3 times a week and I have started him on juice plus for his nutrition and probiotics and I did talk to the doc about the PH thing but he is trying to research and see if we can do that with CJ cause he wants to be safe..And how do you check the PH level? I have been reading your articlces and told my friend cause her husband has cancer and he is doing great and it’s been about 2 weeks so I didn’t know you had to stop, so I will tell her so he doesn’t use too much.. please answer… Desperate mommy……….His meds are

    • Dear Tammy,

      You need to purchase from almost any health food store or the Internet pH strips which you pass through urine , wait the time recommended and then match the color of the strip to a chart on the bottle. Dr. Sircus describes ph and testing in his sodium bicarbonate book :

      You are going to need to get a consultation with Dr. Sircus to discuss the treatment he would recommend for your son and yes this would include bicarbonate of soda as well as other imp;ortant things.
      Please choose from the options here:

      Once you have made payment for your choice you will be contacted by Imva Support to set up an appointment.

    I have / had Adenocacinoma of the rectum, palpable with digitation. My tumor was actually blocking my anus! I put an entire box of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda up my pooper, right on the tumor! Sure made the tumor feel better, but that’s all. Didn’t kill it. Didn’t really effect it. So much for Dr. Simoncini. SO, I was driven in to the hands of the Allopaths. They treated me with Xeloda and x-rays. My tumor is now Gone! Vanished! The Dr. with the ultrasound camera, later asked me “where exactly was your tumor?” My hair did not even fall out. Radiation was a little rough, but I made it through. So I feel my experience might add to the discussion. What do you think?

    • Dan P

      Just something that came to mind. The colon may be unique to treating cancers elsewhere in the body. The GI tract is actually outside your body in a way and the colon needs an optimal microbiota with good bacteria to support health. An acidic environment is created in the colon with a diet high in fiber and resistant starch. This is good because the probiotics feed and ferment this prebiotic food, producing short – chain fatty acids that nourish the gut and can actually positively change gene expression. Directly putting baking soda in the colon with an enema will raise the pH and create an environment for pathogenic bacteria.

      • Cathning

        Hi Dan P, I am researching the viability of a Sodium Bicarbonate Enema for my friend’s colon cancer and we have the litmus ph strips to hand to avoid over alkalising- do you think the enema is worth a shot- this is a question for dr sircus also. Kind regards, Catherine

        • Dan P

          No I would not do enemas. My point was, you want to feed the probiotics in your colon with fermentable fibers and resistant starch (which are all considered prebiotics). This is good and actually makes an acidic environment when short chain fatty acids are produced. Most bad bacteria in colon thrive in an alkaline environment and good bacteria in acidic. A zero fiber diet will make colon alkaline and favors bad bacteria.

  • Brad

    In cancer studies with mice, a 200 mM sodium bicarbonate/water solution seems to be an effective standard dose. But what is that in mg/kg, considering that mice drink 15 ml per 100 grams of weight? The ball-park number I get is about 2.5 grams per kg, but that seems unreasonably high.

    Can anyone here solve this? Thanks in advance.

  • Arthur

    Thank you for this article, I was not aware that there is such a thing as pH medicine. I stumbled across this page whilst researching the impact of baking soda on cancer, because there are so many opposite opinions and argumentation, it is hard to stay objective (especially when not trained in the medicine field). I am however glad that this has not stopped with Simoncini and his controversies.

  • jaye

    Hi can anyone answer this >>> i m 156.21 cm in height & weigh approx.42 1/2 kilos how much baking soda a day shld i take Thank you

    • Jaye, there is no specified amount of sodium bicarbonate that should be taken daily. You must read the book on sodium bicarbonate and follow the precautions. It really depends on what you want to accomplish and amounts per day are guided by checking your pH on a daily basis.

      • sucita

        that Dr. Sircus makes a lot of money with your responses most likely given not for free to people on
        this blog about Dr. Simoncini’s treatment with baking soda; the difference is
        that Dr. Simoncini gave the information for free to the poor people who are in
        need. In North America no information for free and these doctors just
        copy other hearty doctors from across the ocean. I see you just directing
        people to Dr. Sircus books. Shame!!!

        • Sucita,

          I’m sorry you see things this way and obviously you have not thoroughly read through our website to make such false claims as you did. Dr. Sircus has probably given away more information for free than any other medical person……and that includes Dr. Simoncini, who’s work Dr. Sircus admires but for which he has found a better method of treatment.
          So please read our website in full and you will find that most of the chapters in all of the books are posted here for all to see for free. The books are simply a compilation of these essays in various categories and is easier than someone looking through all the various essay postings on the website…and yes, that does cost money but we have kept costs as low as we possibly can.

  • John Turner

    I notice that Dr Sircus recomends molasses with the sodium bicarbonate. As molasses is high in iron, why not alternate with Artemisinin from Artemesia Annua? It has bee used successfully against cancer by taking advantage of its recency to concentrate iron. Why not alternate with the the BS MS/MOLASSES?

  • Brad

    Thank you very much for your work to mainstream medicinal baking soda. I recently discovered a lesion under my side-burn that was too large and irregular to be a normal mole, and I watched it for a couple of weeks, just long-enough to see it grow. Then I kept it wet with a bsoda solution and it turned into a scab within 48 hours and fell off a few days later leaving healthy skin. I don’t know if it was cancer, but what other tissue would be selectively killed like that? I remember that my warts left no scabs when they disappeared.

    On reading about Tom’s situation with lung cancer, I wonder if breathing the mist of a bsoda solution might be a better delivery method than water. Or would it cause breathing problems? Has there been any study on this?

    • Sodium bicarbonate can also be nebulized but dosages are not known.

    • Tatiana,

      A urine pH of 11 can be indicative of a variety of problems, it could be the result of attemptinng to deal with an overly acidic body, could indicate kidney stones or other kidney problems etc.
      Without more information on this we can’t give advice to you here. For example any doctor would want to know if this is an average reading over a period of time, or intermittent… often he tests pH etc. and whether he is doing something to deliberately bring this on. You would need a consult with Dr. Sircus or another doctor to discuss this further. But yes, it is a cause for concern. Normally pH should remain ideally around 7.3 or at 8 if using sodium bicarbonate for cancer treatment, for a couple of weeks at a time, but generally not as high as 11.

      We may need to read between the lines. PH of 11 is mentioned. He would be extremely sick if it were so. I suspect PSA of 11 was meant

  • Janie

    Claudia and Dr. Sircus, we have a plan for my husband that I’d love your feedback about. Namely, in the mornings, he has to do testosterone cream, supplements, his baking soda drink, and thyroid meds (natural desiccated thyroid).

    The problem is that the baking soda will neutralize his stomach acid to some degree, which means he won’t take in nutrients well from his supplements and foods if they are mixed in his stomach. He also has to keep his thyroid meds away from calcium-containing food as well as iron. So here is our plan:

    1) Upon waking, do testosterone cream plus baking soda drink

    2) An hour later, eat and take supplements, and just in case stomach acid is still too alkaline to absorb nutrients, drink down supplements and eat food with Apple Cider Vinegar or lemon in water.

    3) An hour later, take thyroid meds with an acid in the drink.

    That’s the best we can think of. What do you think? Is my thinking correct?

    • Janie, I empathize with this kind of timing problem. Its best to take the sodium bicarbonate on an empty stomach …..about 2 hours before or after any food or supplements if you can stretch it this far, perhaps bedtime ? Also if he is taking any iodine supplementation, that also needs to be taken apart from any other supplements that might interfere especially Vit. C or other antioxidants. It is best to take iodine supplements on an empty stomach and at least an hour or two apart from other supplements so early am would work or if using it twice a day you can do another dose in mid afternoon so it won’t interfere with sleep.

    I have a condition called pvns. benign tumors grow in my knee and behind it. It’s a very serious surgery to remove the tumors in the back of my leg. Eventually I will need a knee replacement. I am young. Do you think this protocol might be effective for benign tumors? I have been mixing baking soda with dmso and massaging the site. Do benign tumors act in a similar way as cancerous?

    • Dear Amanda,

      Dr. Sircus’ protocol is going to help you in the most important ways, it will bring your body to the place where it can easily heal itself. We cann’t guarantee these tumors will diminishh but there have been many peoploe with benighn tumors who found a reduction while using Dr. Sircus protocol.
      You may want to consider a short consultation with him to discuss this further.

  • Joie

    Hello, I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma on September 20, 2012. I have gone through most of the traditional, recommended treatments: left side rad mastectomy with lymph node removal (2cm tumor, 1 node with 2mm extranodal extension). I also opted for a prophylactic right side mastectomy. I had 15 rounds of chemo and opted out of the 16th and final round. I also opted out of the recommended radiation treatment. The cancer was PR/ER+ and they have now started giving me shots to shut down my ovaries. I have been taking an AI, Arimidex, but have recently stopped taking it due to the SE of the meds. I am cancer free at this point and plan to stay that way. I don’t understand the overtreatment of cancer patients with drugs that actually take away from their quality of life. Is all this medication really necessary? It makes more sense to me, now that the cancer is gone, to just make sure I stay on the alkaline side to keep myself healthy. Does this seem reasonable?

    • Dear Joie,

      So sorry to hear about your tremendous problems. Yes, it will be to your benefit to stay more alkaline but you also need to keep an adequate store of nutrients. This will be crucal to fending off any further cancers. You should get Dr. Sircus’ book on Treatment Essentials which will list the protocol items that Dr. Sircus feels all should follow to the extent they can to boost immune systems. There is much here for cancer treatment and overcoming the risks.

      Let us know if we can help further.

    We decided not to continue with the chemo treatment and let him have quality life with the window of life he has.
    He has then stop college as advised by the Oncologist.
    I just started with the Baking Soda and molasses protocol. Can I know any supplements he need to take?
    What about drinking alkaline water with ph 11. Does it help?

  • David H.

    I dont know about you but I really hate the taste of bicarb to the point where I couldnt keep drinking it any more. So I tried to think of ways to make it more palatable and I think Ive found the answer. Its so simple. I just add a small amount of citric acid. The bicarb will fizz – sorry pHizz – due to the reaction between citric acid and some of the bicarb to form sodium citrate and carbon dioxide (the pHizz). The resulting drink is delicious! The really neat thing is the sodium citrate is metabolized back into sodium bicarbonate again in the body (see, Thus the entire drink becomes a systemic alkalizer! But it is nothing new: ever heard of Alka Seltzer?

    • Julius Loren Devere

      …since i dont like the taste of baking soda, i purchased the tablet form “Rugbys baking soda tablets, 10gr (grain), 1000 count” on 15 of these tablets is equal to 2 teaspoons baking soda. i swallow the tablets whole instead of having to dissolve them in warm water.

      “alka seltzer” has other addatives that i dont need including Nsaids and sometimes acetominafin, which REALLY messes you up! besides this, you need to take 10 alka seltzer tablets to equal 2 teaspoons baking soda, which can get pretty pricey compared to rugby’s straight up baking soda tablets.

      hope this helps

    At age 64, I’ve recently been told I have MS. One of the problems I’m having is with acid reflux which only began a few months ago. I feel as if I’m being throttled as the acid burns, especially when I lie down to sleep. How should I take bi-carbonate of soda to relieve this nasty condition, please?

    • Annie, take some about an hour before or after eating and see if that helps. Directions should be on the pkg. of baking soda. It would be better to find out the cause and you are free to get a consultation with Dr. Sircus if you wish to discuss this further. Start out with a small dose and check your pH. Do not exceed the limits of only taking 3 half teaspoons per day if you are over age 60. Long term use can cause some problems so go slowly and try to find the cause.

  • KRS808

    I do not understand how drinking alkaline water can do anything. It is mixed with the very acidic stomach acids (and therefore becomes acid) according to my understanding of physiology.

    • KRS808,

      Drinking Alkaline water is not the answer as you stated. It is the presence of minerals in the water that will make a difference and most alkaline waters don’t have any minerals left in them. Dr. Sircus explains this in his new book Water Medicine which is due out in a couple of weeks. Watch for it.

    • Julius Loren Devere

      …our bodies are made up of over 70% what???
      -OH, water…thats right…

      …the blood in our body needs to be at what pH in order to operate properly???
      -OH, thats right…its pH 7.364…ALKALINE

      btw – the whole “neutralizing necessary stomach acids” wives tale is FAKE.

      the only reason why your stomach has acid in it is because the body attempts to make your food alkaline before processing it…therefore acids get left behind in the stomach.

      dont worry – i didnt know this stuff either, but i found a good source for learning…”THE pH MIRACLE, by Robert Young” was where i learned this and i have been attempting to prrove it incorrect since and have been unsuccessful.

      (if you can put up with all his “god talk” (which i hate)…there really is some solid scientific back to it all)

      btw – the number one secretion of the pancreas to the stomach – do you know what it is???
      OH, thats right…its sodium bicarbonate.

      you can get to pH 8.0 in any MIRIAD of ways. i found the fastest to be 2 teaspoons of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)…and to maintain it – a healthy diet + GREEN DRINKS. they give you nutrition that cannot be found in any other source…not even baking soda.

    Hi my brother in law has 2 avacado looking tumors growing on the out side of his face. Then 1 on the inside under his jaw bone. The one on the inside grows very rapidly and is now blocking the throat and comming through the nostrils. Then are going to giving him a trake ( do not ask me why they have not already) They are administing larges amount of cemo into him and it is something they worry may do more damage than good. Still they feel he has nothing to lose. I was wondering if putting the baking soda and water together to make a paste to place on the tumors would be recommended since this cancer is growing so fast. He will not die from the cancer tumors itself more likely from suffication. I was also wondering if my family who have not been dignosed (praise God) should also try taking baking soda with water once in a while to prevent anything from occurring would hurt? Also how do I check our PH balances and how do I get the test to do this?

    • You can try a paste but its hard to visualize these tumors….he can also swallow or gargle with sodium bicarbonate.
      Taking baking soda “once in a while” in attempts to prevent cancer from forming in undiagnosed people will not harm but we cannot say if it will prevent any cancer…..better to go with an alkaline diet, sodium bicarbonate as needed, and Dr. Sircus’ full protocol which you can read about on our sites at and in the sodium bicarbonate book available here:

      pH testing strips are available at any health food store or on the Internet and usage is explained in the Sodium Bicarbonate book. Daily checks are recommended.
      For other guidance you will need a consultation with Dr. Sircus as we cannot properly or fully discuss individual cases here on this site. Much more medical history would be needed. —– Original Message —–

    mother-in-law has peritoneal carcinosis IV stage. We started to take bicarb
    orally without molasses or any other sweeteners & besides we administer 5%
    sodium bicarb (for 30 days on and off) through catheter into the abdomen by Dr.
    Simoncini’s protocol. Now the patient is much more better. Is it necessary to
    take bicarb with molasses or honey or it possible without
    Secondly, what do you think about Dr Simoncini’s theory?

    Thank you.
    God bless you!


    • anti_banker

      Aiko, hope you don’t mind if I butt in here, but Dr. Sircus who wrote the article above doesn’t agree entirely with Dr Simoncini’s theory of administering the baking soda via other non-oral methods. (See other articles on bicarb by Dr Sircus on this same website) Apparently Dr. Simoncini believes the oral method only works when the tumors are in the digestive areas and the bicarb can make direct contact with them. Dr. Sicrus disagrees and believes if taken orally it still gets into the bloodstream and increases the PH of tumors anywhere in the body, although I think he may have written that oral works even better with tumours that are between the mouth and the anus. I personally think it’s less risky taking it orally and just as effective in many cases.

      • Aiko

        anti_banker, than you for your reply. I am not professional, but sometimes I think that bicarb may cause some harm to other organs, don’t you think?

        • Hello Aiko,
          Apparently my original reply to your original question did not post her and I apologize for that. Thanks to anti_banker for responding.

          Long term use of bicarbonate can bring on problems. It can cause digestive enzymes to stop working it can cause folic acid deficiencies so folic acid may need to be supplemented, It can cause over-alkalinization (ph over 7.4), which becomes problematic and can be dangerous. pH must always be checked daily to make sure it stays wihtin 7.3=7.4 unless treating active cancer.

          • Aiko

            Hi Claudia, Thank you for reply.

            But In this website you or someone said that when PH is 8 it kills cancer cells. that;’s why we try to reach 8 ph. Is it right? Which of Dr Sircus’s books do you recommend to buy? & can we buy e-version and book itself?

          • Hi Aiko,

            Dr. Sircus explains all about using sodium bicarbonate in his e-book Sodium Bicarbonate, Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment which can be found here:
            When cancer is present, the pH is brought up to 8 for a week to 10 days only, then allowed to fall back down…this is done in cycles till the cancer is gone, but not constantly as problems can arise from keeping the ph this high for too long.
            The e-book Winning the War on Cancer also has a lot of information on this form of cancer treatment as Dr. Simoncini practices it.

            Both of these books are e-books only.

    bicarbonate of soda and baking soda are not the same. Add cream of tartar to bicarbonate of soda and we have baking soda. Cream of tartar is acidic. It is added to bicarbonate of soda to promote thickening and levening. If, in cooking, we add an acidic ingredient such as lemon juice or chocolate to bicarbonate of soda, thickening will occur. Beware of baking soda. I am fighting lymphoma of melanoma. Good health to all. Hope this saves the good Doctor half a million.

I feel like I’m just waiting to die and I’m not really doing anything proactive for myself. I came across this baking soda treatment and I saw on another article that says you need to take it with maple syrup so that it acts as a vehicle for the sodium bicarbonate to get into the cancer cells. What do you think of this? I need some help here. I’m frustrated and I’m too young to give up and die.

    • Dear Michele,

      Dr. Sircus is no longer recommending taking baking soda with maple syrup. He prefers it be taken with molasses for its added nutrient value or with just pure water. We have had reports from people that baking soda and water work just fine to eliminate some cancers.

      Also there are other things that can help you elimminate the cancerous cells such as iodine and magnesium…..Please read Dr. Sircus’ book on Sodium Bicarbonate and cancer available here:

      His books on Magnesium Chloride and Iodine are also available on our publications site. A new book with specific cancer protocols will be published early next year.

      The book on sodium bicarbonate will be very instructive and will bring you back some hope! Its helped many!

          • wiz_kid

            So will the honey work as a trojan for the cells, and the baking soda will shrink/ kill the cancer?

          • This is the theory behind using molasses, maple syrup or honey with sodium bicarbonate. Dr.. Sircus believes the same can be accomplished with mixing baking soda in plain water only as some have reported good results doing this too.

      Right now we don’t have a full list but some of these cheeses include any blue-veined cheese such as Stilton and Bleu cheese, and also include camembert and brie.

    • Sarita Premley

      Hi Danielle, I asked around about this a lot when on an anti-candida diet and what I learnt was to avoid any cheese that is hard, or that has a skin; look for soft, white cheeses that are ‘fresh’. Mozzerella is okay, as is cottage cheese, and soft ‘patties’ of goats cheese – but not the ones with skins on them. Hope this helps.

  • 9 bouts of cyber knife 4 first and then 5 6 months apart lung cancer now 4 months later cat scan to see if 10% is gone. is there anyone to talk to or do in regards to a situation like this

  • Tom

    I was diagnosed with non smallcell lung cancer in July2012.I am 62 years old and in good phisical health . I started a baking soda regament Sept 11 I startred with 1 teaspoon per day, after 4 days i started 2 teaspoons one in the morning 1 at night (all with a glass of water) my ph at this time was about 8.0 my PH strips only whent that high so I got strips that went to 9.0 PH. The 19th I went to 3 teaspoons a day
    Sept 21 st , I hit 8.5 I have held that through today Oct 1st.
    Went to my oncolagist today,told him what I was doing he pooh poohed me .said if it worked they would be using it etc .told me I should start chemo & radiation because fooling with the baking soda regament is false hope . How long should I hold the 8.5 PH number? How will I know I have killed the cancer? since I have started I have had no night sweats (I had them every night prior for several months) The oncolagist told me my insurance would not cover a pet scan to check if the cancer was dead if he told them I Tried this baking soda procedure on my own.
    SO how long do I hold the 8.5 PH ?, how do I know if the cancer has all died ?
    I will say I am very P.Oed at the Cancer Drs in my area. If you can kill your cancer and its not through chemo, radiation or any other way to destroy your body then they want nothing to do with you

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Hi Tom,

      The way you can tell if your cancer is gone is by how you are feeling, whether the symptoms of your illness have gone away, and unfortunately by seeing the results of the testing the doctors do. So the next time you go to your doxtor, ask if you can have another test “because I am feeling so much better” and don’t mention taking the sodium bicarbonate.

      There’s no telling how long it will take to get rid of the cancer but its advised that you only stay on the bicarbonate for a week or two and then go off of it so as not to get into trouble with becoming too alkaline. Then you go back on your daily regimen of bicarbonate for another round of 1-2 weeks on the bicarb and one week off of it until the tests prove you are rid of the cancer and you feel better with no symptoms.

      • Cocoa

        My friend was diagnosed with throat cancer and I have suggested doing the baking soda and molasses protocol. I am having her do a build up to it though, to make sure that if there is any swelling she catches it fast and it’s not out of control. My question though is, Should she be increasing her percentage of baking soda by halves every week? what is the highest amount of baking soda and molasses she should be talking? And when you pause for breaks in between weeks, how long do you rest for? Should she be doing this for a week, and then stop for a week, and then start again the same way? Please let me know! Thank you!

    • Yo Tom!

      Hi Tom, you need to find a sympathetic doctor who will help you. When it comes to cancer it is best to deal with it as quickly as possible and to take it very seriously before it spreads too much. I strongly suggest that you continue your baking soda treatment but also find a way to get medically observed somewhere, and most importantly to not waste even a second of time but start the full treatment to get rid of cancer. I took the full normal treatment and they pump lots of fear into people about the treatment, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as people made it out to be. I took chemotherapy, and it really worked wonderfully and I’m glad they even have such a medicine. The reason the hair eventually falls out temporarily is because it is a fast growing cell and chemo targets mainly fast growing cells. So please do not risk your life over any of this, you must get observed and tested and not waste any time getting fully treated when it comes to cancer. This is my sincere advice coming from direct experience. I wasted two years not getting treated and the cancer spread during that time until I had to go to the hospital for breathing issues and coughing, I was pretty pissed about wasting the time and not getting treated due to fear, especially when I found out despite the morbid pleasure doctors take in scaring people about everything, the chemo didn’t do anything bad like they claim and I got better and felt better really quickly. Another good thing to stimulate your immunity is to go into a kind of rage mode of getting pumped up and feel the energy pumping through you and strength and that can help boost the immunity and stuff. Please get observed and treated immediately with sympathetic doctors where you can find them and don’t waste any time risking it with cancer.

      • dennis3

        I hope you are all better and that you are cancer free.

        Question: What did you do to stop, minimize or other treat your cancer during your two years before the chemo?

        If you did nothing but sit for 2 years then you missed the whole point and are lucky to be alive today.

      • Genavie Mccrea

        That is terrible advice! If chemo worked for you then your one of the lucky 2 percent it works for. Chemo has a two percent success rate and I would wager that its been within 5 years that you had chemo because it only suppresses cancer for around a five year period and then it comes back mutated and with a vengeance. There are over 50 alternative cancer treatments that have a great success rate. Turpentine and kerosene both cure cancer and late stage cancer for example and multiple alternative cancer treatments can be utilized at the same time for under $100. You are spreading fear and misinformation and for you to even be on this site reading and replying shows you are still concerned with cancer and not as sure of your life saving chemo as you say. Could be a doctor or big pharma employee as well! I wish you well and hope you find truth and love in everything.

        • Ivona Goe Holm

          I have survived cancer 4 times so far and after 10 years it is back again. SO I am on number 5 now. Chemo killed my mom, my sister, my Aunt and my grand mom. I did not do chemo with the breast cancers and melanoma, just surgery. I am dealing with B cell cancer now and no insurance for doctors and doctors will do nothing for you if you cannot pay them. It is all about money. Any way I have a large tumor in my neck now and it is starting to cause issue and of course with any blood cancer you are sick a lot! Fluish almost. I am seeking alternative. I did do chemo the first time I had blood cancer but it had me in the hospital so many times then it almost killed me, plus it did so much permanent neuro damage that I will die before I try that route again. I am going to try the baking soda and maple syrup. Any suggestions on anything else that has worked on another?

          • bugswest

            Cancer is closely associated to fungus, especially Candida albicans, which thrive in a high glucose environment, chiefly an anaerobic verses aerobic cell function. Treat cancer as a mold which means light, alkaline environment, reduced glucose will slow and kill it. Anaerobic cells consume 15x more glucose than aerobic cells, that is how they target cancer cells with chemotherapy, anaerobic cells have approximately 5 chemical reactions prior to energy release whereas the aerobic cell has approximately 10+. In a nutshell alkaline diet will help more than anything, no dairy, meat, sugar in any form, i.e. soda, flour, bread, pasta, these are high in acid or acid forming, alkaline foods are most vegetables, yogurt, Brazil nuts, honey to name a few. Look up an acid / alkaline food chart for more detail, the mix is 80/20 for good health, good researching, knowledge of nutrition is your MD, look at a slow speed juicer and the results of apple/carrot combinations. Read about Gerson therapies.

            Hi, hope you are still there, did you know there is more than apricot seeds you can take, also you need to do the cancer diet . B17 is in many seeds and other food, Also B17 on its own is not reported to do well if you have had operations for cancer but seems to work if you have not. Keep to the B17…check it out on the internet and see what else it is in… and go strict on the cancer diet which is a alkaline diet. If your body is not acid… check this out also re alkaline balance for your body…. the cancer has a hard job to survive, this is a VERY important piece of information. So, check out Alkaline diets and live on it.. get litmus papers so you can check your body alkaline/ acid balance regularly. good luck. liz …

          • Mark Wilding

            Apart from diet changes, Apricot kernels need to be taken with proteolytic enzymes (pineapple stem for example). This weakens the protein sheath of the cancerous cell, leaving it more exposed to the B17

          • richblingmore

            Yes this is true if you have cancer but if you do not it can also be used as a preventative .

          • Heidi_Heidelberg

            Ivona, there are so many cures, it’s confusing but a good thing too. Things you can check into …
            *Mushroom tea – certain kinds of mushrooms are very effective
            *Apricot seeds – supposed to be extremely powerful
            *Juicing – I heard that drinking green juice for three months is supposed to entirely replace your blood.
            Also, beet juice is a POWERFUL blood cleanser
            *Check out youtube videos. A lot of interesting cancer testimonials and healthfood doctors on there.
            You’re right about alkalizing the body. I’m hearing more and more about that too. There’s a doctor on youtube that goes into that. If you type in cancer + alkalinity I think you will pull him up. He has a mustache… can’t remember his name. He’s very impressive (a European) and goes more into that in detail.
            And one more thing, Ivona, I just have to recommend a book to you that I think might really mean a lot to you… I buy used copies all the time to give to people. “MY GLIMPSE OF ETERNITY” by Betty Malz. It’s an amazing true story. A woman dies while on vacation and tells what she saw on the other side. I would give you a copy if I knew you. I’ve personally heard of people whose lives have changed after reading this book. You know, I don’t think it’s any mistake you’ve survived cancer four times! I think God has a purpose for you here. Take care!

          • Mona

            IP6 does nothing, I tried it for 8months and it was useless as was curcumin, reishi mushroom and whatever else useless supplement Ive tried. I think it may have even made my cancer worse.

            update, the cancer is not blood it is acc Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, rare. I have tried just about everything and nothing is working. I am set for surgery July 25th but I could be dead by then

          • Denielle

            Im so sorry you have had to go through all this in your lifetime, how devastating. If I was in your situation, I would be trying anything “ALKALIZING” anything that is “GREEN” and anything that is “ANTIBACTERIAL ANTIFUNGAL and ANTIVIRAL” and anything that stimilates “THE LIVER”…… For example…Lemonjuice, chlorophyll, olive leaf, colloidal silver, mega doses of magnesium, Bvitamins (antistress), Bicarb (as per Dr Sircus), juices, greenteas, plus I believe you still need protein and eggs are natures pure little vitamin pills… and while you are dealing with the cancer DO NOT drink coffee or softdrink.

            I dont know if you have ever heard of low frequency zapping, I discovered this when I was researching “Greg Caton’s “how to make black salve on youtube… video 3of3 near the end he mentions treating internal cancers with low frequency square wave zapping and I liked the sound of it and I now own one and love it.

            I have also bought prill beads(little magnesium oxide rocks) which you leave in water and it lifts the level of alkalinity of your drinking water and is low cost and they last for many years if not indefinately.

        • Ahihavecrohnsdisease

          Good words! Chemo eventually kills. Unfortunately I’m in the US where chemo/radiation is standard treatment. That’s all the doctors are taught about and can recommend. A family friend went through 3 seperate kinds of cancers. The 1st cancer fight with chemo killed the cancer in that location but destroyed other parts of his body. Thats what happens when you kill yout body with poison. Now, he’s dying (or maybe giving up because he can’t go through the process a 3rd time) .. Very sad

      • melztreazures

        I am a 21 treatment chemo veteran. This is selfish and inaccurate advice. You obviously have a hidden agenda. Chemo kills. I am seeking alternative therapy because of the permanent damage it did to my body leaving it weak and susceptible to more tumors. I will pray for you.

    • Blood Practitioner

      Hi Tom

      Having worked with this protocol with cancer clients, as a practitioner for many years, there are a few things to know about bicarb protocol.

      It is also about what you do with your diet – fully alkaline, juice/smoothies, no fruit, no sugar, exercise, sweating, rest and mental aspects. It is possible to hold the high pH for many months but it could be causing extra kidney/liver/gall stones which you would then need to address another way. This diet will hold you in good stead. Depending on which country you are in you could see a blood microscopist who will indicate where the cancers are in your body, and how much healing is going on .

      If you do decide to come off bicarb, wean yourself off it – do not do it all at once. If you do, you would detox from it and the night sweats would return immediately.

      Good luck

      • I’m beginning to think that people have no idea what’s going on. Healthy cells need sugar. Starving the cancer cells also starves the healthy cells. That’s why mixing baking soda with molasses is successful.

        • liz

          Um. there are several types of sugar….. the white type is deadly. there are simple sugars that are gen. from fruit, you do not need any syrup for the B soda it is to make it more palatable. Good diet of veg has plenty of sugar of the right type for body cells. Most sugar is very acid.

          • Is white sugar bad when it is mixed with baking soda? One thing that molasses has is a lot of potassium which is needed to balance out the sodium.

          • james29h

            Liz you need a strong dose of sweet with baking soda . the cancer cells open up to eat the sweet and then the baking soda gos in and kills it .

        • Dolores Scissorhands Medina

          Maple Syrup is a Trojan Horse the cancer cells are attracted to it … but IT IS an alkaline !

  • Louis Anderson

    I have a very personal interest in bicarb treatments as I believe I have brain cancer. MRI pending. I had heard of the maple syrup treatment some time ago and wondered at that time, Why maple syrup? The logic of cancer cells taking in glucose spiked with bicarb is brilliant. My research showed that maple syrup was actually quite low in glucose so I went in search of a higher % glucose product. What I found was glucose = dextrose = corn syrup = Karo light. There are other sources of glucose but none so easy to get. Two cautions. Folks with corn allergy’s find another source and the Karo on my local store’s shelves has vanilla added. I am going to make another pass at finding corn syrup with nothing added. If anyone knows a reason to use maple syrup I’d sure like to know. After I mix the bicarb and syrup I’m considering reducing it to hard candy for a pleasant way to take my medicine. Another thought I had was that the stomach might separate the two components and totally screw up the plan. An alternative I’m considering is making some very sweet rectal suppositories. The “candies” would be absorbed directly into the blood stream bypassing the stomach.. Next best thing to an IV. An enema is another way. My other plan is to mix bicarb with DMSO for an all over body lotion. I think I need some PH measuring strips to track progress and make sure I don’t overdo it. Also need a starting point to see if I;m having any affect at all.

    Anyone know a site where people have been reporting their experiences with these treatments?

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      No we don’t know of such a site.

      Dr. Sircus recommends using black-strap molasses with the bicarbonate instead of maple syrup as it has more beneficial nutrients as well as the necessary glucose.

      Be very careful using anything in mucous membranes (via suppository, enemas etc.) as absorption is much different, more rapid and possibly more completely absorbed. This can be both a benefit and a downfall.

    • JillE

      I understand Blackstrap Molasses is a good alternative to Maple/Corn syrup although very strong tasting.

      • Claudia – IMVA Staff

        Yes molasses has more nutrients than maple syrup. Can’t imagine anyone recommended using corn syrup….don’t do it. some even are finding good effects from just putting baking soda into plain water and drinking it down.

        • Pauline

          Is the molasses 3 parts to 1 part soda
          and cooked for several minutes like is done with the maple syrup?

          • Claudia – IMVA Staff

            yes, Pauline….the same 3 parts molasses to 1 part bicarbonate of soda.

            You can also just use sodium bicarbonate in water.

          • Susan

            The cancer cells thrives or feeds off sugar/glucose, but it is the baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) that attacks and kills the cancer cells, so I would certainly add the molasses. The cancer cells look for the glucose since it feeds of sweet stuff. In an attempt to feed off the glucose, it gets the baking soda, which then starts to kill the cancerous cells. Do not drink just sodium bicarbonate in water, add molasses, maple syrup, honey etc. My point is add something sweet preferably molasses.

          • Claudia – IMVA Staff

            Hi Susan,

            Yes that is Dr. Simoncini’s theory , that the glucose acts as a trojan horse dragging on its back the sodium bicarbonate that will kill the cancer cells.

            Dr. Sircus now believes that this will happen anyhow without the addition of mmolasses or mmaple syrup. He’s had testimonials to that effect, specifically Vernon Johnston who cured himself with bicarbonate in water of prostate and bone cancer.

          • anti_banker

            The sugar trojan horse theory is true in certain cases. I have read of chemo drugs being modified and added to sugar molecules to trick the cancer, but is this the case with bicarb and sugar. I am not so sure. What are the pre-requisites for it to work ? Does molasses, or glucose bond naturally to bicarb and is this necessary for this trick to work. We need to know more because I know sugar alone is BAD and increases cancer growth. So we neeed to know more before adding any sweeteners to bicarb. We need to know exactly how this “trojan horse” method works and if it works with bicarb and various sweeteners or not. Don’t they have to bond together to formn a new molecule or something. I think its better to leave out the sugar part, or reduce until we know the answers to this question.

          • Recently obtained information has shown us that the sugar is not needed for the bicarbonate to be effective. It can be taken with plain water as Dr. Sircus frequently recommends. —– Original Message —–

            Hi I am a HER2neu/positive stage 3 breast cancer patient from the U.S.A currently in Senora Mexico receiving many alternative therapies to treat my breast cancer. One of my recent therapies was (Sodium Bicarbonate) administered through my port. Immediately once the drip was started I was un-fire my entire chest and core filled with heat !. They stopped the drip and administered a hydrocortizone to counter-activate what they believed to be a allergic effect ? How can I be allergic to baking soda ? Clearly some chemical event took place in my body. I’m disappointed I could not continue the therapy as it is widely used with success!
            I never had Chemo/radiation, refused it twice. I’ve buried loved ones from standardized care.
            Can someone weigh in on what went wrong and should I be fine with doing it orally ?

          • steve

            I believe that Vernon Johnston also used molasses in his protocol. I am going to start the sodium bicarbonate myself with the molasses. I am a male but have growths in both sides of my chest and the nipple area is sore. I have started to juice also using a slow juicer to get the full benefits of the juice. I have had 1 growth on my back disappear since juicing. I think everyone needs a good alkaline diet and keep there PH level up. I have been so acidic for most of my life.

          • You can see Vernon Johnston’s video on mixing molasses and sodium bicarb here:

          • Jim

            what veg and fruit you have been using to juice.

          • reggupton

            According to Johnston’s video and notes he did use molasses. I am confused.

          • Now many people are showing success with using sodium bicarbonate in water only.

          • reggupton

            Thanks for your reply, Claudia. What does “many” mean? One or two or ?

            And what does success mean?

            Thanks for your prompt reply

          • Sorry but I don’t know the numbers….you would have to get that directly from Dr. Sircus. Success was shown by reduction of tumors, regression of cancer overall, or relief of other symptoms. Keep watching Dr. Sircus’ newsletters for more on all of this.

          • reggupton

            Good enough, Claudia.

          • If you are confused which method to use for cancers, go ahead and use the one with molasses. Sounds as if you are doubting the benefit of bicarb in water alone. Both methods should work if instructions and ph monitoring and proper pH levels are reached.

          • reggupton

            Thanks for your follow up, Claudia..

          • Yvette Sabin

            Ten days before my scheduled PET scan, and fourteen days before a scheduled mastectomy, I found Vernon Johnston’s video and followed his protocol. During those ten days, I earnestly prayed for and visualized a complete riddance of cancer from my body, along with other strategies that probably mattered. Consequently, the PET scan showed “no evidence of cancer,” and I of course cancelled the mastectomy. That was two years ago. I continue to use baking soda whenever I feel overly acidic and also occasionally do the molasses and baking soda, per Vernon’s recipe.

          • Yvette, Thank you so much for sharing this with us here. This is fantastic and I am so happy for you. That was a pretty close call for you with surgery already scheduled and I’m so glad the sodium bicarbonate helped so quickly.
            Claudia French

        • anti_banker

          Claudia, cancer cells require high amounts of glucose to sustain their high growth levels. I believe that we whould be limiting all forms of sugar, although Molasses is healthier than refined, white table sugar and maple syrup for example.

          • You are so right that we should limit sugar since cancer cells thrive on it, but Dr. Simoncini’s belief is that it is the sugar that will pull the bicarbonate into the cancer cells and then the bicarbonate will kill the cancer cells before they can cause any further damage. Its his Trojan Horse theory.

            Dr. Sircus has a different belief and now feels that neither maple syrup nor molasses is necessary to get the bicarb into the cancerous cells and that this can be accomplished with just water and abaking soda alone in cancer treatments.

The Cancer had not spread and so I was not given Chemo or Radiation Therapy but I was prescribed Tamoxifen and warned that the cancer can occur in the other breast. What I would like to know is if I can reduce the chance of cancer and if one could save a breast with invasive lobular carcinoma by some sort of “baking soda”, alkaline treatment or some other way. I have a daughter and although nothing can help ME get my breast back I want to know as much as possible about this subject in order to pass relevant info to her and other relatives and friends and reduce their chance of going through what I went through and still have to live with.

      Dear Jane,

      Its best to follow Dr. Sircus’ full protocol of iodine, baking soda, and magnesium chloride. Doing this along with making the necessary changes toward a more alkaline diet will go far to help prevent other cancers from becoming a problem in your body. Keeping the body alkaline should not be done with intake of sodium bicarbonate over the long term but this will help to get you a jump-start.

      Dr. Sircus new book Treatment Essentials will be out in a few weeks and will help to describe what to do with each item on his protocol. Watch for an announcement!!

        Claudia. I seem to think that you CAN be on bicarb permanently, as long as it’s a small amount daily (eg. 1 teaspoon in a glass of water daily). I doubt this will cause any harm as people used to use it all the time for indigestion/heat burn, didn’t they.
        The reason I think using small amounts indefinitely as prevention of cancer (and larger amounts to treat cancer) is because of the modern diets we eat that are more acidic than our ancestor’s diets. Also I don’t think our water supply is as alkali as it could be compare to waters of the Himalaya’s, etc. Unless all these factors change, then I don’t see why people shouldn’t use small amounts of bicarb daily for all their lives. What do you think ?

        • Some people do take it daily and indefinitely and don’t seem to have too many problems. but others do.. there are dangers to doing so such as over-alkalinization, folic acid deficiencies etc. The warnings are there and its up to you to understand the risks if you choose to take daily amounts of sodium bicarbonate. It is far better to learn to partake in healthier eating and whatever lifestyle changes are necessary than it is to rely on bicarbonate. There are ways to eat more alkaline foods and drink more alkaline water than what our current diets give us today. Older people do not metabolize the same as younger people do, so for them, the limits in how much to take are much less than for people under age 60. Better diet and lifestyle will better prevent cancer and be safer for us. —– Original Message —–

    If you go to the page that describes what exactly the research is intended for, here’s the link you will see that whilst it admits bicarb has been a successful barrier against breats cancer spreading elsewhere in a cancer sufferer (that’s gotta be a first – a partner of the ACS flying in the face of the ACS page that denies any scientific research to support bicarb treatment. here’s the link )
    What jumps off the Arizona page at me is “doctors can monitor the effectiveness of personalized treatments such as baking soda on both tumors and healthy tissue, and even predict the effectiveness of chemotherapies before the patient starts the medication…”
    That translates as they will “prove” that Bicarb helps as a cancer inhibitor, not a cure or preventative that will aid in the administration of the same chemo based therapies now with PERSONALISED regimes based on your response to the bicarb. The term “personalised therapy” / “medicine” repeats in the article.
    When discussing acidity and it’s effect on tissues ” “The acid also provides resistance to common chemotherapies,” Pagel said.
    This research is to get a cheap way to get people to continue with the drugs by telling them to take bicarb first.
    Tell me I’m wrong guys….I DARE YOU. In fact, tell me I’m wrong when the research is done and the cost for the personalised Bicarb test for Chemo drugs package is rolled out in oncology clinics worldwide…….

    • Rosie

      I can attest to the success of sodium bicarbonate- I was diagnosed with a squamous cell carcinoma lesion on my temple. Unfortunately since I had recently lost my job I have no medical insurance, hence I was not able to get treatment. I simply tried mixing sodium bicarbonate with water to make a paste, and applied to the lesion twice a day, for approximately 1 1/2 months. The lesion is now completely gone.

  • sh

    Is Sodium Bicarbonate also a usefull treatment for Leukemia (CLL)? or only for tumors etc

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      We have seen reports and studies that have shown that bicarbonate can be effectively used in the blood disorders, including leukemia.

  • Nilva

    Hello I have a 16 months baby who has rhabdoid Malignant cancer on his liver with lung involment he was on chemotherapy since he was 6 months he failed three chemotherapys the cancer is growing and the doctors told us he doesn’t have nothing else to offer to my baby he is eating a little bet he just star one week ago before I was geving pediasure with a Syringe he is looking great but the doctors told us he has a very short time becouse the cancer is growing 4 cm every two week before he had a surgery to remove the tumor but now the tumor is back on his liver hi has more spot and I’m very desesperate we try noni juice, Graviola and aloe and we dont see change. Can you please give me some advance. Oh his cancer stage is IV thank you for you help

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Dear Nilva,

      So very sorry to hear this about your child. Dr. Sircus would recommend his full protocol be put into action to help resolve this situation, but you must get a consult with him to get specific instructions.

      Please see:

      • Elisabeth

        So sorry to hear this, glad if Dr.Sircus can help. You might also try to get hold of hemp oil, it has brought many back to life 🙂 Good luck!

        • Jeff

          So sorry to here as well. I totally agree about the hemp oil. Its been known to help greatly for the kids appatites. Please do some research on the hemp oil treatment before trying this. There are videos available showing parents using it to help their kids eat and eventually get better.

          Prayers for you and your baby!!

  • Ellen Rudolph

    Claudia, I have a question related to EPSON SALTS versus Sodium Bicarbonate.
    A cup of Epson salt (magnesium sulfate) has been recommended by my 87-year old friend’s doctors in her nightly bath. She doesn’t have to use it. She got her Magnesium Oil today in the mail from me, so tonight she is trying the Magnesium Oil in a hot compress, and will begin using it tomorrow on a regular basis during the day also.

    Question: Wouldn’t Sodium Bicarbonate be better in her bath, along with
    Sodium Thiosulphate? Followed by the oil afterwards? She needs the STS for rather severe calcification in hands and wrists.

    Question: is there a general rule for how much Sodium Bicarbonate versus Sodium Thiosulphate? A 1:1 ratio perhaps?

    Many thanks,

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Dr. Ellen,

      Dr. Sircus actually recommends using magnesium chloride bath flakes instead of magnesium sulfate (epsom salts). This can be mixed with sodium bicarbonate in a bath…use about a pound of bicarb. the sodium thiosulfate can be added to magnesium chloride but not a pound…just a few teaspoons should help.

      Did you know that Dr. Mark also has a book on medical baths? Check on this one:

      You can see the table of contents at that site. Also, you can send an email to Luciana valentim at: to request to speack with Dr. Sircus directly:

  • Dear Dr. Pagel, Congrats on your grant and I wish you the best with it. Just writing to mention a little-known transdermal use of baking soda I wrote an article about nearly 20 years ago… It was titled “Does your deodorant cause breast cancer?” … It talked about how most breast cancers appear in the upper-outer quadrant of the breast, the area closest to the underarm, where toxin laden deodorants and antiperspirants are applied. Advocated using baking soda to control underarm odor instead by “dusting” the underarm area with baking soda. To make this easiest, I store my baking soda in a dusting powder dish and use a powder puff to apply the dry baking soda under the arm. The baking soda is sufficiently alkaline to kill the underarm bacteria that cause odor, and it is the best underarm odor control substance I have found, effective for days. All my friends who try it stay with it. Just a little FYI. Best wishes, Kerri Colegrove

    • Diane

      Have you ever tried Milk of Magnesia for under arm deodorant? Oh my! It’s wonderful!! Magnesium is naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. Plus you get the added benefit of up-taking magnesium as the underarms are highly receptive to the transdermal processes. I will also try the baking soda just so I can say it works!! And to benefit from the absorption of the soda. DO TRY IT!! You’ll love it!

  • Gina

    This Information Is a blessing and your work is as well. Intending on getting your book. Keep working hard at what you do, there needs to be better education out here. Western Medicine is in great need of the natural resources that can impact us just as effectively and BETTER. Thankyou to you for heading in that direction and for helping us understand a better path.

  • Hi,
    why do tests with baking soda. Why not try tests with Alkaline/Ionized Water? Look up Dr. Hiromi Shinya and his cancer studies. Why are American’s spending money on new research when the cure already exist and it’s very simple and Natural. I also suggest to research Dr. Otto Warburg, he discovered the root cause of cancer.
    Thank you!

    • There’s no money in treating people with pH.

    • You researched you did not discover. Alkaline water has existed for millenia in various places. there are fountains in mejico and costa rica with alkaline water geysers that are said to cure illness.. Acidity is the cause. Only the imbeciles who refuse to read and or reason never figure it out and let the Medical Mafia rob them blind.

    • AAA

      The pharmacutical companies are flushed with so much money they have made by (I will have a very long list) sucking all the money from the poor cancer patients and ultimately killing them. They are just pretending to be spending money on finding drugs for cancer. They very well know there is cure for cancer. they are like leeces – GREEDY TO THE CORE, HEARTLESS, DONT’ CARE WHO IS DYING, WHO IS LOOSING THEIR BELOVED ONE. THEY WANT MONEY, MORE MONEY AND MUCH MORE MONEY. THIS IS THEIR SLOGAN AND MOTTO.

  • Deborah Paolini

    I want to know your opinion on the reaction of the baking soda with the salivary cancer. (head and neck)
    My Mom was diagnosed 9 years ago w/Saliva glands cancer and had a large and dramatic surgery on her mouth. The tumor was big and she’d lost half of the roof of the mouth, some of the upper teeth and cheek bone (all the way to the base of the left eye). She wears a prosthetic that makes her “look” normal and also eat and drink almost normal. The cancer came back and there is a mass in the back of the mouth.
    She can see it and feel it, perhaps because the tumor is visible and accessible it can be treated directly. Any suggestion??

    We are looking for “hope” as she wished on New Years Day.
    Please let me know, you may contact me directly I’ll be happy elaborating 🙂

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Dear Deborah,

      I am so sorry to hear about your mother’s cancer.

      In her type of cancer sodium bicarbonate used orally can directly come in contact with the cancer.

      Please read the sodium bicarbonate e-book and then if you need further guidance you can get a consultation with Dr. Sircus as we cannot obtain nor provide all the needed information here.

      Check here for your options:

      • Aiko

        Dear Claudia, My mother-in-law has peritoneal carcinosis IV stage. We started to take bicarb orally without molasses or any other sweeteners & besides we administer 5% sodium bicarb (for 30 days on and off) through catheter into the abdomen by Dr. Simoncini’s protocol. Now the patient is much more better. Is it necessary to take bicarb with molasses or honey or it possible without it?! Secondly, what do you think about Dr Simoncini’s theory? Aiko

    • Gwyneth Owen

      Dear Deborah, Do read Jason Winter’s book. i can’t find it at the moment, but i think it’s called ‘Killing Cancer’ or ‘My fight against Cancer’. You will get it from the name. It’s the story of how this guy ( a stunt man!) afterawful experiences with just the cancers your mother has (and avoiding the surgery!) healed himself with herbs. Red clover was one, but there are 3 you can buy together as ‘Jason Winter’s Herbs’ (well I hope you still can in the States!) so your mother may be willing to drink the herbs as well as rinse with the bicarb etc.

      Good luck. I hope this helps.

      Love, Gwyneth

  • Wendy

    Hello, my brother has bladder cancer – at least stage 4. He has resisted having the bladder removal operation which the doctors say is his only hope. He had tried a few alternative methods which included a baking soda cure. It was to be mixed with either maple syrup or blackstrap molasses. The theory was that since cancer cells want sugar, when sugar is mixed with baking soda it is more readily taken in by the cancer tumour – sort of like the Trogen horse idea. He lives on his own and refused to go for follow-ups with doctors to see if he was winning. He got really sick and had to go to the hospital. Apparently the cancer tumour grew and blocked the kidneys from working – which killed one kidney and they are trying to save the other kidney. So, now he’s agreed to bladder removal and will have it done once they shrink the tumour since it’s bleeding heavily. I guess I’m wondering if he failed due to the maple syrup?

    • Janie

      Wendy, what happened with your brother? My husband used baking soda and molasses for bladder cancer tumors last March, and in 3 1/2 weeks, when they went in via surgery, his tumors were gone!! Now it’s 5 months later and the tumors are back, as discovered today! We didn’t know to watch his pH levels all this time. Lesson learned. So we are back on what worked before starting today to see what happens.

  • Barry

    Mark/Staff, I follow your magnesium therapy and while I cannot scientifically say for certain, something has had a profound effect on my muscles releasing after enduring excrutiating pain from a short stint on statins.

    I am curious if you have a regular regimen you use involving baking soda? I have toyed with the idea but would obviously like to hear a professional perspective.

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      Glad you are seeing positive changes with Magnesium Oil use!

      I personally judge my need for sodium bicarbonate by testing my pH daily and looking at an average of about tw0 weeks time. If it averages below 6.8 consistently I adjust my diet to eliminate meats and to eat more greens, I use half a squeezed fresh lemon in a glass of water twice daily and use bicarbonate when my pH averages show I need a boost to get back to alkaline. I have tested too high in bicarbonates (serum test) so testing pH is absolutely crucial for me personally.

  • do you have an address or phone number for dr. simoncini?

  • Gay Auldridge

    You do know though who owns the National Institutes of Health and the last thing that huge institution wants is people healing themselves, then they will cease to exist…sorry Doc…I don’t buy it and your not going to teach them anything they haven’t been already shown. But good luck with your conscious cause they ( our government) like to buy those from doctors these days…love and light all the same!~

  • It should also be noted that when the trials begin that sugar should be factored “out” of the equation. Sugar FEEDS cancer and this is ALL sugar….”carbohydrates”. Many times these “paid for” scientists have in the past purposely created studies to fault the ability of an element to prevent “cure” cancer and other disease for the benefit of the pharma companies. It will do little good if the scientist give baking soda and also allows the patient to consume Krispy Kreme donuts “as an example”. Cancer cells need a special environment to grow…change the environment and cancer cells can not survive. The trick is to get the oxygen INTO the cancer cell without effecting the surrounding healthy cells. I do hope this doctor has integrity in his study and will take the effect of sugar in to account as well. No one need suffer with cancer, it is easy to get rid of. What a shame that more people don’t know.

      • Dear Charity,

        Read up on Dr. Sircus website….you can put “cancer” into the search box at each essay page top and there will be lots for you to read. You can then purchase Dr. Sircus’ book Treatment Essentials which outlines his protocol for cancer and other illnesses. You can follow as much of his protocol as possible leading with staying alkaline, keepinng your magnesium levels up and iodine levels too.

    • Sugar also feeds healthy cells.

    • liz

      Good to see someone who knows what they are talking about! Just remember about the alkaline acid balance you need to have in your body for good health and particulatly if you have cancer. 7 – 8 for cancer 7 general. Sugar is not needed in our diet unless it id from veg.

  • Our body need the right amout of ph. Can one drink certain about of baking soda with water to regulate the ph in the body for women have a hard time keeping they ph leverl for the female area with out getting vagial infection that medince and food has cause to go out of control?

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      Baking soda can help but you also need to make long term changes to diet to allow your body to become more alkaline naturally.

      • Who and I do that. I am taking Female Probiotic formula 2x a day plus a mult vitamin, vit D 1,000 a day for I am low, Magnesium glycinate with 1,200 mg of calcium, and canberry and thyroid herbal too. I don’t drink milk only soy or almond milk.

    As a person experimenting with Alkalinity, I can say that under alkaline body conditions, I am definitely more oxygenated. It could be like Baron says. It also could be that less oxygen and antioxidants have to be expended in neutralizing free radicals. Whatever the mechanism or the explanations, the body is better oxygenated and harmonized. So whether you fast or use alkaline foods or substances, what counts is that the goal is always achieved. Fasting however, is the wrong way to harmonize.

    Good work Dr Mark. I appreciate the info as usual!

  • Tim Webb

    Jon Barron thinks that the more acid the blood, the less oxygen is available to the tissues, whereas in fact the opposite is true. Haemoglobin loses its affinity for oxygen in such conditions, which are caused for example by heavy exercise. It would be counter productive for the haemoglobin to hang onto its oxygen load at such times. This is the real key to understanding carcinogenesis, ie an acid-producing diet increases, for the above-mentioned reasons, the availability of oxygen to early-stage cancer cells, which have a far greater dependency on high oxygen saturations than do normal cells, as the former cannot utilize the Krebs Cycle for their energy needs and so must rely on the far less efficient non-Krebs pathway for producing their ATP.
    Barron also thinks that excess H+ ion is soaked up by oxygen, thereby rendering the latter unavailable, whereas in reality H+ is simply removed from solution by the various organic buffers whose job is precisely this, ie to resist damaging changes in pH, which would adversely affect the configuration, and so the affinity, of the various enzymes for their substrates. This enzymatic degradation is what kills the fish, not the unavailability of oxygen.
    Two further points occur when discussing cancer, ie the body’s levels of Vitamin D, which is a known apoptotic and antiproliferative, and which if given at sufficient doseage to women with breast cancer reduces the fatal development of metastasis by 800%. And further, it would appear that women’s undergarments are soaked with fire retardant chemicals which diffuse into the breast and promote the development of the disease.
    The individual initially referred to in this article should realise that correcting an underlying pH-imbalance with bicarbonate is not the real answer to the problem. But perhaps the 2 million dollars has affected his reasoning processes. It is akin to continually changing a vehicle tyre which is wearing away at the edge; the solution is not in fitting a new tyre, but in correcting the tracking of the steering system. Just so, pH imbalance is far better addressed by adjusting the diet to increase the bodily alkalinity to appropriate levels. Adding bicarbonate to the equation will always be strenuously resisted by the body’s buffer systems , as already indicated.

    • L E Morin

      Dear Mr. Webb, I am a bit scientifically challenged so I am not able to follow you in all details of your reasoning. But I’m quite sure your opinion is completely contradictory to the idea of baking soda as a cure-all against cancers, diabetes, influenza, common cold, plus damages by radioactive radiation. Most probably, your text was not understood by the people behind this website either, that’s why it was not deleted.

  • Exposition

    Don’t look now, but follow the history of laetrile (amygdalin, Vitamin B17) which is presented quite cogently in “A World Without Cancer” by G. Edward Griffin. Given that they absolutely trashed what very well could be a natural way of ameliorating cancer from the body, and turned those who obtained benefits from such therapy into pariahs of society, the likelihood that sodium bicarbonate and its affordability as a therapy for breast cancer will not be savaged by the Rockefeller founded American Cancer Society, all of the networked agencies associated therewith and the kleptocratic mainstream media (given the potential loss of profits) is extremely doubtful.
    If Dr. Pagel’s trials evidence safety and efficacy, I only pray that his career is not ruined or he is forced to turn against his own data for fear of his job, his grants and/or his retirement account.
    Remember, each cancer patient represents hundreds of thousands of dollars to mainstream medicine and if a cure for breast cancer can be found for pennies on the dollar, what would that mean for cancer therapy profitability?
    While we wish Dr. Pagel godsspeed, we caution everyone to read between the lines when the results come out. The fix will be in, it’s just trying to figure out what that fix actually is.

    • Linda N

      Well said Exposition. I don’t believe for a minute that this trial will show anything positive about baking soda as a cancer treatment. The most likely reason it is being done is to be done in a way to disprove it. However I also think that the reason baking soda helps is because cancer is a fungus and fungi create an acid environment to survive to the detriment of its host. Fungi cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Dr. Simoncini makes clear you have to get the baking soda to the tumors; in many cases injecting it right into the turmor. This aim is NOT to change the PH of the entire body. It is to kill the tumor. Tim Webb is also correct in that the body has an elaborate buffering system whose job is to maintain an exact pH in which enzymes can function and that pH is slightly alkaline. The best way to do this is diet. Also Cancer cells use fermentation to create ATP because the fungus has merged with the human cell as a type of hybrid parasite. Read “The Germ that Causes Cancer by Doug Kaufmann.
      My Non-medical two cents

      • Claudia – IMVA Staff

        Hi Linda,

        Nice to see someone with the correct understanding of the action of sodium bicarbonate….so many people don’t realize that its not just the pH changing ability of sodium bicarbonate but also its natural anti-fungal properties that kills cancer cells. When I went to the two day seminar of Dr. Simoncini in Rome presenting about this, he was adamant that it was not just the pH changes to more alkaline that killed the tumors.

        Like you, we fear that these clinical trials may be being set up to discount the benefits of sodium bicarbonate for breast cancer but we can only wait to see the outcomes. At least the premise of these trials was stated that the researchers believe sodium bicarbonate DOES have an effect on reducing breast cancers.

        Thank you for posting!

        • Cutting Stunt

          Do I drink the baking soda? And how much? How do I check my body’s ph? With those strips I used in school? If so, where do I buy strips?

          • Claudia – IMVA Staff

            You can find all these answers in Dr. Sircus’ book on Sodium Bicarbonate.
            Get the book as it will give you a great deal of information.

            Yes, you can drink the sodium bicarbonate and yes get some pH strips like you used in highschool and test your urine daily to guide you according to your body’s acidity.

            The book is here:

          • Julius Loren Devere

            2 teaspoons baking soda dissolved into warm water, then i drink. within an hour my body is at pH8.0 and maintains alkalinity for at least 8 hours. i used pH strips that i purchased on for $6.

            …since i dont like the taste of baking soda, i also purchased the tablet form “Rugbys baking soda tablets, 10gr (grain), 1000 count” on 15 of these tablets is equal to 2 teaspoons baking soda. i swallow the tablets whole instead of having to dissolve them in warm water.
