Sodium Bicarbonate Cancer Treatment Overview

Published on April 25, 2010

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda):
Every Cancer Patients Best Friend

Breast cancer cells
Cancer cells have a lower pH than surrounding tissue,
sodium bicarbonate cancer treatments work by increasing pH.

As if it were not humiliating enough for orthodox oncologists to learn that the lowly chemical sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is important in the treatment of cancer now they have to swallow the research pointing to the fact that bicarbonate can also be used to diagnose cancer in its earliest stages. Oncologists do understand and know that bicarbonate is necessary to protect their patients from the toxicity and harm done by highly toxic chemicals used in chemotherapy. They also know it is of extraordinary help to patients receiving radiation treatments protecting as it does the kidneys and other tissues of the body from radioactive damages.

Oncologists should also know that bicarbonate-induced extracellular alkalinization leads to significant improvements in the therapeutic effectiveness of certain chemo agents. A number of studies have shown that the extracellular pH in cancers is typically lower than that in normal tissue and that an acidic pH promotes invasive tumor growth in primary and metastatic cancers. The external pH of solid tumors is acidic as a consequence of increased metabolism of glucose and poor perfusion. Acid pH has been shown to stimulate tumor cell invasion and metastasis in vitro and in cells before tail vein injection in vivo.

Researchers have investigated the very reasonable assumption that increased systemic concentrations of pH buffers would lead to reduced intratumoral and peritumoral acidosis and, as a result, inhibit malignant growth. It has been shown that increased serum concentrations of the sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) can be achieved via oral intake. These researchers found that consequent reduction of tumor acid concentrations significantly reduces tumor growth and invasion without altering the pH of blood or normal tissues.[1]

Oral NaHCO3 selectively increased the pH of tumors and reduced the formation of spontaneous metastases in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer. NaHCO3 therapy also reduced the rate of lymph node involvement and significantly reduced the formation of hepatic metastases. Acid pH was shown to increase the release of active cathepsin B, an important matrix remodeling protease.[2]

We know that bicarbonate turns to CO2 easily when dissolved in water as it enters the stomach but few know that cancerous tissue turns bicarbonate into carbon dioxide. A few years ago a United Kingdom Cancer Research team found MRI scans were able to track changes in bicarbonate and therefore identify cancers even in the very early stages.

Sodium Bicarbonate and Cancer Research

All cancer has a lower pH, meaning it is more acidic than surrounding tissue. Working with mice, the researchers boosted the MRI sensitivity more than 20,000 times. Using MRI, they looked to see how much of the tagged bicarbonate was converted into carbon dioxide within the tumor. In more acidic tumors, more bicarbonate is converted into carbon dioxide.

Lead researcher Professor Kevin Brindle, from Cancer Research UK’s Cambridge Research Institute at the University of Cambridge, said: “This technique could be used as a highly-sensitive early warning system for the signs of cancer. By exploiting the body’s natural pH balancing system, we have found a potentially safe way of measuring pH to see what’s going on inside patients. MRI can pick up on the abnormal pH levels found in cancer and it is possible that this could be used to pinpoint where the disease is present and when it is responding to treatment.”

Special Note: In Sodium Bicarbonate – Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment it is stressed that sodium bicarbonate cancer treatment is not a standalone single shot treatment. It should always be used in conjunction with a full protocol that includes most importantly magnesium chloride, iodine and selenium plus a naturopathic approach to diet, intestinal cleaning, sun exposure and many other helpful things.

    I am a 53 year old post menopausal female who has suffered with a blood clot that wen to the smallest of the three arteries in my stomach. I also have a 2cmm blood clot lodged in my abdominal arota. Are there any recommendations for a treatment. I’m currently taking an aspirin a day for thinning my blood. The doctors can offer me no treatment plan
    or reasoning for why this happened. An MRI showed that I currently have a cyst in my kidney and one in my liver.

  • Donaldi Goanna

    Dear People

    I have been a subscriber and supporter of Dr Sircus from the beginning. He is very brave and writes from the heart.

    I have also read the book about fungus and cancer and agree with it ( by Dr Tino Simoncini ) I am shortly reading Dr Sircus sodium bicarb cancer E book)

    Thank you Dr Sircus – for being brave enough to tell the truth and offer real cancer cures and real cures for many maladies..

    My father is Alan . He is 90 years old. He is still very fit and quite lucid and is fully orientated in time and space. He has been ( along with my sister and brother and myself ) nursing our elderly mother for the last 5 years. My mother died in early December 2017. We live in Brisbane, Australia.

    My father recently had an endoscopy and a malignant Gastric Adeno Carcinoma was discovered in his stomach. 2.5 Cm in size My father will shortly be reviewed by a gastro surgeon to advise on prospects of removing the section of stomach with the carcinoma in it and also by a physician to advise on my fahters prospect of being a candidate for surgery.

    I have started my father on Dr Simoncini’s sodium bicarbonate ( aluminum free bicarb) oral regime and am giving him organic vegetable juices and affirmations ( for him to read to program his immune system).

    My father is fit and healthy otherwise and can fly. I have told him I will write to you to see if you could provide any further information’s / protocols.
    Could you please advise if you can provide a consultation and the fees applicable etc ?

    Whilst we are treating him here in Australia is it ok if i also give him ascorbic acid powder ( vitamin C) orally to help boost hisa immune system?

    Do you have any other treatment or protocol suggestions ?

    We thank you for taking the time to read and respond to this email and look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards and Happy New Year for 2018

      1.Buy sodium bicarbonate (also known as baking soda—not to be confused with baking powder) and black strap molasses.

      2.Buy pH test strips.

      3.Put 2 teaspoons of sodium bicarbonate and 2 teaspoons of molasses in a mug. Add a little cold water and mix into a paste, and then add half a pint of cold water and mix again until the sodium bicarbonate and molasses are fully dissolved. Drink this twice a day on an empty stomach (30 minutes before food and 1½ hours after food) for 10 to 14 days, no longer. During this period, test your pH often (both your saliva and your urine). Your pH must be brought to an alkaline level of 8.0—8.5, for at least 5 days to kill the cancer. You can stop the treatment at that point if you wish, but the longer you take the treatment (till the 14 day period is up) the surer you can be that the cancer no longer exists.

      4.During this period, you may begin to feel a little nauseous or queasy, and your stool may become yellowish. This is expected. It means the cancer cells are being killed. Also, your lips may tingle and you may get Oxygen Euphoria and even a slight headache. This is also expected.

    i have papilary thyroid carcinoma. can sodium bicarbonate cure it? how should i prepare it and what should be the dosage?

  • Tahanyat Satti

    My cousin is suffering from BRAIN Cancer she is 19.. and her tumors cannot be operated..

  • Sonya Dutra

    My Dad is 63, very healthy and was diagnosed with Large B-cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in January 2016 and went through 6 months of chemo, was cleared and same cancer came back in different places in October 2016. Brain, upper and lower back and in spinal fluid. He has been doing chemo since November where he has to stay in the hospital for 4-5 days each chemo session and about 3-4 weeks apart. One Dr scared him and said why is he doing chemo if it is not working and another Dr said they do see a difference and still wants to treatment him, but says he still falls in that 15% survival rate. SCARY!! They will be putting in an Ommaya Port Reservior in his head for chemo directly to the spinal fluid and brain. Does anyone have any info regarding this type of cancer or about the baking soda/maple syrup to help with my Dad’s condition.

  • Aunt Goldie

    There have been no known clinical trials testing baking soda as a cure or therapy for cancer. In addition, if cancer were caused by a fungus as is suggested/stated then why isn’t baking soda used as a cure for other fungal infections?

    • gena

      Hi there…i know that in conventional medicine there are no studies…thus we are prompted to rely on Big Pharma…which of course if you have done any reading you too realize that NONE of the conventional therapies…surgery…chemo nor radiation do anything to cure or even promote healing of Cancer…howevere…BAKING SODA…has a proven plethora of uses…and as an alternative treatment to cancer is VITAL…i urge you to go to cancertutor . com….read of the overwhelming benefits of Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate)…whether you would agree it were effective in treating fungal based disease…including cancer…its proven benefits are off the charts….good luck in your research…i think you will be simply amazed…:)

      • Michael Wharton

        Gena, I know from my own experience fighting male breast cancer that bicarbonate has had miraculous benefits. I created my own cancer therapy by following a report by University of Ariz, Wayne State Univ., and Moffitt Cancer Center, Florida. Their report is about laboratory mice that were infected with human breast and prostate cancer implants demonstrated that bicarbonate had dramatic ability to inhibit metastases which is often the big killer of cancer victims. I tell my cancer & bicarbonate story online at theCandidaZone(dot)com. If you visit my site, you can see for yourself my before and after videos of my actual tumor. I review the science that convinced me to use bicarbonate. I would love to hear your comments if you visit my website and watch my videos.

      • Katherine Bragdon

        Totally not true as I know of a woman treated with direct injections and orally for breast cancer in a study in a North Florida hospital and was cured of her second go round with breast cancer

        • Susan Walsh

          Katherine, I would love to know the name of the dr, at the Florida hospital willing to do direct injections. I have been searching and searching and not having any luck finding someone to do this in the US. Please share the name with me. I would SO appreciate it.
          Thank you and God bless -Susan

            Hello ladies. Can you provide the name of the Dr. and facility your friend was treated at. It would help me get some answers. Than you.

  • inas darrag

    I’m from Egypt < my mom was diagnosed with liver and lung cancer ,it reached the bones also ,she had breast cancer 10 years ago and removed one breast , had chemo and radiation treatment after the surgery ,now the cancer is back , the doctor told us there is no hope in surviving ,
    I gave her the sodium bicarbonate treatment , 1 Sb to 3 honey , 4 teaspoons per day , she became better , the liver pain became much less ,and the coughing is also ,better ,the problem is , we didn't tell her that she has cancer , now she sais that the treatment is aching her stomach , she stopped it for two days and the liver pain came back , any one can help me what to do ,and what the wright dosage and the exact time to keep giving her this treatment , and how to know if she is cured , please don't tell me to tell her about her condition , she is 70 and it will freak her out

    • gena

      Dear Inas Darrag….you are on the right track…but the Baking Soda Cancer Protocal must be very exact…my Mother is 79 yrs. old…had surgery to remove a little more than half her liver in June of 2015…was told she was cancer free…she had Cholangiocarcinoma…however it did come back in April of 2016…the conventional medical doctors said she was terminal and that she would die by June of 2015…i have been treating her with many good layering protocols including the Kelmun Baking Soda Protocol …it is today March 8, 2017…and my Mother is still alive…she is stage 4 cancer…but with this protocol we have been very successful…i urge you to follow the protocol that i mentioned above…she must also have specific other protocols as well…especially if she is stage 4 and can very easily develop …CACHEXIA/ANOREXIA…the wasting cycle…that happens and then she could die very quickly…my mother was in this cycle for almost a month and i put her on a very aggressive protocol for the baking soda…much more than the little baking soda you have been using…the cancer cells MUST BE ALKALIZED…so if you go to Cancertutor . com you can learn about the Kelmun Baking Soda treatment…plus the MSM/Vitamin C/D Ribose protocol’s as well…very very vital and will help…i am NOT a doctor…i have read extensively at even Dr. Sircus…Dr. Mercola…Semincini…Axe…etc…and they all too are listed at Cancertutor . com….best of luck to you…

        Hey there my sister diagnose with stage 4 stomach cancer adenocarcinoma… Docter has said there is no cure…. she went through one chemo session but cannt tolerate been in ICU for 8 days …. help me what othere things we can do ..

        • O.T

          I can help you with cannabis oil. It works

    • Mike Zacierka

      I am not an expert on the subject but I think you have to reduce the dosage to half a teaspoon of SB for a glass of water. Do not make your mom to drink soda right after a meal. This is very important, use soda only before a meal. I’ve done a lot of tests on myself and not using BS drinks after a meal reduced stomach pain to zero. Try not to overdose, my recommendation is to not drink more than 4 servings a day because anything more than 4 causes a pretty nasty headache.

    Hi debbie. Did it work for u?

  • My mom 86 is colon cancer free. Pl follow Dr. Sircus treatment and pay for a consultation.

  • Stephen

    I have just recently been diagnosed with Primary Myelofibrosis. I think I have to consider myself a sugar freak. Breakfast of a bear claw and a pepsi are a common thing and sometimes a bag of those candy orange slices is all I need. I was reading below about stopping all sugars, is that even possible? And when you say all sugars is that just all processed sugar or am I going to have to say goodbye to fruit sugars and like juices etc.? And while I’m asking does anyone have any history with Myelofibrosis? I’ve read it’s very rare, like only 18000 Americans are affected by the disease. Couldn’t come across a rare gem or a rare coin, I found a rare blood cancer, but I’m keeping my sense of humor and a positive mental attitude, just if this baking soda might give me a leg up, come to me arm and hammer. Comments????

  • Joanne Springett

    What is the contradiction between Dr. Gerson and the doctors that prescribe the sodium bicarbonate protocol, which one is right?

  • RvRev

    Gregg, when did you bring in the maple syrup into the protocol?

  • Cmc

    Does this apply to brain tumors as well?

    • IMVAUser

      Yes, Dr. Sircus believes that his full protocol can be effective in any type of cancer and at any stage. You might want to consider a consultation with Dr. Sircus to discuss his recommendation on what would be best for you

    • Leshialee

      Look up raw juiced cannabis you’ll be extremely delighted and what you discover

  • oldtimered

    Greg, good for you to check into alternative helps.
    The dose depends on the size of the person and the amount of cancer.
    Most people we have read about, my wife has stage 4 breast cancer and has been doing alternatives for 5 years,
    started doing baking soda seriously in the last 4 months after the oncologist gave her a chemo drug; Afinitor, that he said was not chemo.
    Afinitor destroyed 1 years progress in 1and 1/2 weeks. She is still recovering from the side effects 4 months later. The oncologist would have killed her if she stayed on his poison.
    She takes a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of mineral or distilled water usually once a day.
    The important thing is to get pH strips for urine or saliva at a health food store or on line.
    Our understanding is doctors now say that a pH of 7.0 to 7.5 is desirable.
    We adjust amount of drink by testing her urine at least once a day and usually 3 times.
    Occasionally the pH drops to 6.0 or below and we get some baking soda in quickly, 1/3 to a half glass with the teaspoon of baking soda dose in the 8 ounce glass, and see how that goes. Usually she will need the full dose early the next day also.
    Don’t forget the cancer cell is acidic and if it dies that acidity could be getting into the system. So a sudden drop to a 5.5 pH or less may be a good sign, just a thought not proven. But whatever get the pH back up and keep testing.

  • Sandra Coiny

    Being sick of stomach cancer is like asking God to take your life and never return to earth again, i will pray and pray for God’s mercies toward my life. Asking him to save and cure me from all this terrible disease or take my life. I can still remember being sick of Stomach cancer like it was yesterday. I was chronically ill for 11 years with stomach cancer, having undergo several chemo therapy, radiation and natural treatment due to the pain and suffering i endured, i had no choice but to try everything medicine that offer hope. I lost faith believing i was been punished and the doctor took the last hope that was with me. I would read a lot of articles online regarding the cannabis oil and it’s miraculous work’s on cancer patient’s, having being my last hope, I was privilege to obtain the cannabis oil from the affiliated Rick Simpson team 8 months ago, after proper following of instructions by their medical doctor’s on treatment after fulling obtaining the medication, I can proudly let my voice be heard by the whole universal that I have been saved by the Rick Simpson cannabis oil after 11 years of pains.
    I appreciate all the support my families and friends gave to me during this trying time of my life and to the Rick Simpson team, I am forever indebted to you all and would always support your organization in all ways of my life.

    11 Years of Sorrow has turn into 5 months of total healing with the Rick Simpson cannabis oil, and am so grateful to God almighty for his mercy over my life as am now a dignified victory against stomach cancer. This is to let everyone out there know that they should never give up on God or themselves, no matter the situation in life, there is always a way out of it. Rick Simpson is a true Canadian Hero that deserve the Medal of honor.

    Hi, my friend has stage 3 cervical cancer had surgury to remove a large grapefruit sized tumor and 4 of the 30 lymph nodes that they wanted to remove. Now 2 treatments in she has 2 new growths that showed up in the pre radiation/chemo after surgury check. And all 4 lymph nodes were positive for cancer. I’m not sure what type of chemo she’s on. But is this safe with all types of chemo at the same time as chemo? I’ll keep reading info on these pages. I know she won’t stop Cho to do something good different but she might be willing to try something tin addition to ir.. Now is on radiation and chemo I thanks sarah

    Hello, it is not I who was diagnosed with gastric cancer today, but my dog. Is there anyone that could recommend a veterinarian that is holistic and perhaps administers baking soda to dogs? I am doing my research, but I figure it couldn’t hurt to try on this website either. I am definitely considering a baking soda therapy, but I don’t know how much to consider or how to find out about it in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Any help is appreciated.

        This was all before Chemo. Now before you JUMP I want to know that undeniably had ALL of confidence in what I’ve done before that. A whole moths work of my own “chemo”, if I can can call it that. It actually was the BEST decision I made of saving my life with Baking soda and real lemons.PT 1 STOP every bit of sugars that go into your mouth candies cookies sodas pastries and anything with yeast. Diet pops are the worst. Finally and most of all absolutely nothing with HighFrustoseCornSyrup. Google IT. PT 2 After you know stop the sugars you immediately stop the cancer. PT3 Must follow a maple syrup and baking soda solution in steps to KILL the cancer. YES, I said KILL! IT. Then you can begin to see results. AL I can say is this. ALL of my liver enzymes numbers began to drop dramatically!.My tumor marker size went from a 800 down to a 154 and better the usual. That is now DOCUMENTED Proof I wouldn’t have know that IF I didn’t take that steps and used them, Clinic, to find out for myself which way my own work work was taking me. I was RIGHT ON the MONEY!! In using them-Clinic that is. Yes, I allowed them to treat me BUT only if it was gonna help My efforts. I set them a Grand stipulation. IF I felt that they’re help was not helping and making it WORST. I was Pulling the PLUG on them Immediately. I had put them on Notice right then and there, 8 months later mY wife had a Merry Christmas!! I told her she’s not gonna find it under the tree this year. This years bare tree without presents and all. I would give her a LIFE. That would my ME. Its good to be alive at Christmas. She hugged me and she agreed.♥♥♥♥♥♥ Merry Christmas to ALL! LIFE is what Christmas is about to us this year and Every year. AMEN

  • Dai Parri

    diagnosis – prostate cancer – used bicarbonate of soda 4 weeks prior in anticipation of a problem following many months of slow flow urine – now feeling a lot better and my flow is almost normal!!! Hospital wants to give me the usual Radioactive – Chemotherapy and or surgery but I will resist all that and try to convince them of my improvements but… know it aint easy!

    • oldtimered

      It is easier than many think if you decide to go alternative.
      We went back to an oncologist, but found an oncology surgeon that understood alternatives even though as an AMA doctor he could not recommend, just nod his head at what would work that we were doing. We made him in charge of the overall case and got a friend of his appointed primary care physician so we had good back up for referrals and needed medicine.
      He told the oncologist no chemo and no radiation. When an oncologist went to chemo we walked out. It may take awhile especially as you know as the income drops and the alternatives are not paid by insurance but many extra Merry Christmas’ are sure worth it to have my wife here.

    My mother in law was diagnosed July 3, 2014 with stage 3 Ovarian cancer. Since that date she has undergone 4 Carboplastin Chemo treatments, hysterectomy, oophorectomy, and omentectomy. She also has had problems with her gall bladder and it was suspected gall stones. They attempted removal during her surgery but were unable to resect. The gall bladder had become involved with ovarian cancer and the liver was “spotted” on the surface with cancer also. She is to start Carboplatin with Avastin on Jan 7th. She has been having upper gastric pain, vomiting and nausea due to the gall bladder. She is not a candidate for removal of the gall bladder as she is 86 and the doctor said she would not make it through the surgery, and that the surgery is not a possibility due to the amount of liver involvement. She has been reading about the baking soda treatment and has started taking it 5 days ago. (1 tsp baking soda and maple syrup q day). As of yet her pH has not changed from 6.8, remaining steady at that level. What should she be doing other than that to make the pH increase? Any help would be appreciated, we are running out of time.

    • Dear DeeRodgers,

      Sorry to hear about this serious condition your mother is dealing with.
      It may be that she needs to take more sodium bicarbonate than she currently is taking to reach the treatment levels of a pH of 8. Perhaps she needs to ingest the sodium bicarbonate twice a day.

      Please contact us for consultation as soon as possible for guidance on what to do and how to increase dosages to reach treatment levels.

    I have recently been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. Please tell me what is the protocol for sodium bicarbonate therapy

  • Aussiegav

    I was diagnosed several months ago as having T1 Prostate Cancer, with Gleeson score of 6, which means it is still contained within the Prostate and has not spread to Lymph nodes or bones or other organs at this point.
    I have been using the Bicarb treatment at home for the last 5 weeks, with my first teaspoon of the day being in the mornings before eating anything and another before dinner and again before bed. My diet has not changed in anyway since I was diagnosed and I still smoke cigarettes (stupid I know).
    My point is that the Doctors and I are only in a surveilance phase and as I am only 46 the docs feel taking the prostate out would be overkill at this stage. So basically I am receiving no treatment and no medication. My PSA levels are tested 3 monthly with last four results being…3.2, 3.3, 3.8 and last one 3.1. I only started the bicarb treatment 5 weeks ago. Will keep you all posted of my next PSA level test in January, but positive results so far.

    • Sally Morgan

    Can a baking soda paste be placed directly on ulcerated cancer tumors in side of neck?

  • Dr. Sircus, if all your researches and theory is true, you are a true blessing for millions of cancer sufferers. Than why aren’t you giving the book for free to make awareness?

  • Rebecca

    Hi, My dad has been told that he has 10 lesions on the right side of his brain and they did a MRI to find the primary source which is in his lung. Is this treatment warranted in his case. This is all new to us as it has only been 3 days and it just feels like such a nightmare. Could you suggest what we could try. We haven’t been told what treatment he is going to have yet. We know it is chemo but not sure about the whens and hows yet. He has been taking bi-carb & maple syrup 1 teaspoon 3 times a day for 2 days now and has stopped eating sugar & wheat. What else should we be doing and where can I find out more? Thank you so much for your help

    • Hi Rebecca,
      You should read Dr. Sircus book on Treatment Essentials as soon as you can. This is the foundation for treatment against all cancers and includes the sodium bicarbonate treatment but also includes other important and necessary pieces in the battle against cancer such as magnesium,, iodine, cannabidiols heat therapy etc. . The protocol includes everything that Dr. Sircus feels will be necessary. and if your dad can follow as much of these protocol items as possible his immune system will be bettter able to get beyond this.

      If after reading through this you still need guidance you will need to obtain a consultation with Dr. Sircus:

      Hopefully we can help you out..

    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

    It’s so sad that most will never hear of this from their doctor or oncologist.

    • depending on how you paid for the book purchase, you can cancel that payment and then go back and purchase the new book you want. With PayPal this is easy to do. If this doesn’t work, I’ll see what I can do to help.
      You can also write to IMVA Support who handle the book sales and let them know you want to make a change.

    Dear Claudia,

    i HOPE YOU CAN HELP. We are so anxious right now. My friend’s mother (in Italy) has been having medical tests which found a malignant tumor in her colon early last week. She is now waiting for surgery so that they can determine how large the tumor is and whether it has metastasied to any other areas of her body. She still doesn’t know when the surgery wil take place as she is waitlisted in a public hospital but we suspect it could within this month of April. She has been told not to eat fibre (fruit and veggies) due to their irritable effect to her bowels but she is allowed cheese and well-cooked meat once a week (which I think is wrong since they are acidic!). She has already lost 6 kilos in two weeks due the strict diet and does not want to lose anymore especially before the surgery!
    What type of diet/other protocols do you recommend from now until the surgery?

    I really hope you can reply as soon as possible.

    Thanking you in advance.

    • Hi Alex,

      You should get her on Dr. Sircus’ protocol as soon as possible at least with the magnesium and bicarbonate and selenium. An alkaline condition is going to fare better for her, you are absolutely right about that! Good drinking water (alkaline) will also help as will some of the other protocol items on Dr. Sircus’ list.
      Get the Treatment Essentials book and if you need more guidance schedule an appointment to speak with Dr. Sircus directly. But get started with at least the first 5 protocol items.

      for scheduling a consultation:

      He will be glad to get you going on what to do after he gets more information from you. —– Original Message —–

    Can baking soda [bs] and hormone therapy [drug called Degarelix] be used together as a stage IV prostate cancer treatment? Will the bs interfere with the Degarelix or vice versa?

    I heard Dr. Sircus on the radio say that a person should use 1/2 teaspoon of bs 7x a day to treat cancer. Can this protocol be used everyday without interruption or should it be used 14 days in a row with a week break and then the bs another 2 weeks?


    • Hi Miles,

      We don’t know what the reaction between baking soda and Degarelix would be but baking soda generally doesn’t interfere with chemotherapy drugs, in fact it is used in combination with some to neutralize the toxic effects of the chemotherapy drugs.
      When using hi doses of baking soda for cancer treatment you should always break for a week after about 10 days of use and then start the cycle again till improvement is seen. Check pH daily. —– Original Message —–

    Will this help patients with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML). I have a relative who is on oral chemo for CML for three years. We are praying for a natural cure. Can this be the answer? Please help! Dr. Sircus, may we hear from you?

    • Emily,

      Dr. Sircus’ protocol can help for many types of cancer. Dr. Sircus advises anyone who can to get onto his protocol for cancers, even if they are still on allopathic chemotherapy. To discuss individual cases you would need to obtain a consultation with Dr. Sircus, but he would be glad to help! —–

        I just need to inform you that my husband bought your ebook, but unfortunately is giving an error even though we have installed the ‘Adobe Digital Edition 2.0″ as instructed on your site.
        Please also note that we are able to open other ebooks with .epub extension.

        My husband sent an email to both support and to your site’s webmaster, but unfortunately no feedback was received from any of them.

        We have downloaded two copies on two different latops and got the same error on both.

        I would really appreciate a feedback as you know such cases related to cancer are always urgent and time is not on our side.

        Thanks in advance

  • jood

    My husband just got a ‘clean’ PET scan, although there is a little sugar trailing to one spot in his lung…upper lobe. That doesn’t sound ‘clean’ to me, especially considering that the lung is the next place his oral squamous cell would go. In addition to other protocols, I’m having him use a nebulizer (baking soda and distilled water) every night. Can someone tell me…how long can he do this? Does it become unhealthy at some point?

  • Silvana Isabel

    Hi Claudia. I have fibroids and I was wondering what would be the protocol used by Dr. Sircus to help dry them. A hug from Brazil.

    • Andrey

      For Claudia. Fibroids is a matter of hormonal imbalance. Check the book by John Lee “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause”. Do not reccomend to use sodium bicarbonate thoughtlessly. Doubt it will help with fibroids. Even if Yes the underlying cause is deficiency in progesteron.

      • Thanks Andrey and you’re right! Iodine and magnesium may be more helpful. We have seen a lot of positive information on the benefits of iodine in the shrinking of fibroids, and magnesium is necessary for the synthesis of progesterone.

    Hi, Im new to all this, but trying to cure my cancers using alternative methods and have been using Bicarbonate of Soda plus Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Bio-Selenium + Zinc….any comments appreciated. Web pages state my Ph should be 8, but mines 6.5….comments on mine please. Thanks

    • Follow Dr. Sircus’ directions for using the bicarbonate and you must also use other parts of his protocol for cancer: magnesium chloride,, cannabinoids (CBD) Iodine, and more. Read his books on cancer: The Changing Landscape of Cancer, the Sodium Bicarbonate e-book and watch for upcoming Treatment Essentials book. Diet and Lifestyle changes must go along with the bicarbonate treatment. For example, cut out sugar and red meat to help your body alkalinize faster.

      Books available at:

      • Jason Blake

        Thanks for comments Claudia…Ive already cut sugar and red meats out. Will check out the books and continue with the bicarb….possibly gonna try cannabis oil as well cos heard good reports on this in cancer treatment.

        • anti_banker

          Very few high dose, oral, Vitamin C supplements can raise blood levels of Vitamin C to the desired level, this is why intra-venous Vitamin C is often favoured for this purpose when it comes to cancer patients and the use of natural medicines. Don’t foget to also add magnesium chloride oil on your skin (transdermally). Doing this in addition to drinking magnesium supplements (preferably without addition of calcium in the same tablet – better to get calcium from dairy products).

          • Diondonne

            Search for liposomal Vit C how to make. It is ultimetly stronger than either oral or IV due to its fat encapsulation which gives it the ability to pass through the cell wall.

      • Suzanne Eve

        You said cut out sugar can you eat all natural fruits?

          STOP the sugars, STOPS the Cancer. NOW stop it now. Starve the sucker and and it wont grow. What’s it gonna be?? It’s like the plants in your home and the plants you have do need water ……Plants will grow. Deny it water……IT WILL DIE! Stop feeding it what it wants SUGAR of any and All forms now! Especially fermented sugars. Wines and liquors for examples. If you Starve it, It WILL stop growing!!! That sweet tooth you heard about lately? It has an ALIAS It is also know to us as CANCER.

    What is the best method of measuring urine pH? I’ve tried some strips but it is difficult to read the color variations to match up with the color on the strips. Thank you.

    • Hi Ed,
      Generally we find that inexpensive pH paper works just fine to determine urine pH. Sometimes it is hard to distinguish the colors but you can get a pretty good idea with the litmus paper which is relatively cheap. There are some other pH testing kits on the INternet that advertise as being easier to read, more accurate etc. but we have not tried or tested any of them . Do an Internet Search and compare what they say.

    My 4 year old German Shorthaired Pointer has just been diagnosed with lymphosarcoma. I have spent the last few hours researching natural remedies and am very interesting in trying the baking soda method. There seems to be quite a lot of information for treating humans, but I can’t really find anything on treating dogs. I would be very interested to make contact with Juhlie and Linda and see how they are getting on, and if they can offer any advice. I would appreciate any help you can give.

      I would think so!! The sodium bicarbonate could come easily in direct contact with your esophagus!

    • knutas

      That’s in not correct about your ph in your blood, it’s impossible.
      Always test ph in salive – it’s the same fluid as the extra cellular fluid. To measure in urine is a joke. Thats just the ph in urine… and say nothing about your ph in the body.
      But why measure ph in the first place? It’s to low – othetwise you should not have been sick – so raise it, thats the point.
      From wikpedia:
      “The pH of blood is usually slightly basic with a value of pH 7.365”

  • Linda

    Hello there,

    Is there any way we can contact Juhlie, to see how her baking soda treatments with her Veterinarian went for her dog. She is a brave pioneer in treating animals. I did see someone mention in Dr. Sircus’s blog, that she succesfully treated her horse with a salve of baking soda, but you dont know a few months later, if complications arise. So it would be nice to hear from Juhlie, how succesful her attempts were.

    I have tried to ask Dr. Simoncini about my dog a few days ago, but he doesnt always have time to answer questions.

    I too am trying to treat my 7 pound dog, with an external ooozing tumor the size of a lemon in her lower tummy, with baking soda salve. She also gets 1/15 of half a teaspoon in the morning and at night, as per instructions in his book . He also mentions dosages of 1/8-1/4 teaspoon is safer,(human dose) in RichManPoorMan…

    Dogs have a lower Ph level than humans, and I realize i have to monitor it. I have purchased the other 2 top cancer fighters, Iodine and Magnesium, as per the brands you suggested.

    Could you please put me in contact with Juhlie, possibly send her this email, or we could exchange emails.

    I can let you know how our progress goes as well.

    Thank you so much,

    Linda Heise

    Sorry, my last sentance should have said…

    Will detoxing depress my pH?

  • Rick

    I’ve been on the Sodium Bicarb regimen for a month now. Until now I haven’t had any trouble maintaining a pH of 8. But this week I started having difficulty maintaining 8. I recently started detoxing with both an oral detox cocktail, and with sauna. Will detoxing raise my pH?

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      It is possible that detoxification will raise your pH. You state you are maintaining your pH at 8 for a month?? Please remember that you must take a break every two weeks for one week withhout any bicarb.

  • Abby

    My grandma currently has stage 4 cancer, she’s been on an alkaline diet for a little over a month now, and she has decided not to undergo any means of modern medicine. I’ve been reading a lot of comments here about ph levels, and I do have a question. I know that someone that is over 60 shouldn’t take more than 3 half teaspoons a day. However, my grandma is 76 years old with stage 4 cancer. Would it be wise to stick to that dosage or will I be able to increase the dosage to increase alkalinity to 8.0?

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      That can only be answered if more information is known about your mother’s overall condition with stage 4 cancer. You should consider talking about this with Dr. Sircus directly in a consultation. The elderly metabolize medicines much differently than younger people do and you cann walk right into danger. Elderly people hold substances and medicines in their systems much longer than younger people do and this is related to normal age-related declines in kidney function and decreasing function of other organs.

  • Nancy

    I was recently diagnosed with Papilitory Thyroid cancer, I started a few days ago the baking soda and water about a teaspoon and 8 oz one to two times a day trying to keep my ph up to 8.0
    I am also making a paste and putting it on my neck area for a 20 min not sure if it would help but figured it wouldnt hurt.
    I cant afford a consult at this time. I am on medicare and not working much. They just want me to go to the hospital and trying to make me feel like I am making a mistake but I stopped all sugar, only eating fish and clean animal meat once a day. organic veggies and grains and fruit. Does anyone know how long I should do this for exactly. I have one large tumor they took the biopsy from. Thanks for any help you offer

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Dear Nancy,

      If you can”t afford a consult you should at least readc Dr. Sircus’ book Sodium Bicarbonate Rich man’s Poor Man”s Cancer Treatment which is available here for @$25.

      You will need to follow the protocol for cancer, which includes other things besides sodium bicarbonate until the cancer is gone.@ 8 for a week and then take a break from it and repeat this cycle till the cancer is gone.

      If you are over age of 60 you are taking too much bicarbonate at one tsp in water twice a day. You need to take no more than 3 half teaspoons in water per day. Please read the chapter on warnings and contraindications.

  • Rick

    I found the Sodium Bicarbonate book last week after having been diagnosed with Stage II Prostate Cancer. For three days now I’ve been maintaining a urine pH of 8.0 – 8.5, but my saliva pH is running 7.0 – 7.5. Is this a typical difference between the two pH readings?

    How long should I maintain the high pH levels prior to having the cancer re-biopsied?

    How does the body then eliminate the dead cells?


    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Hi Rick,

      Generally the urine pH rapidly shows more alkalinity than the saliva. It takes about a month before the saliva consistently remains more alkaline. Our pH vascilates a great deal and even unpleasant thoughts that occur during the day can make our salive more acid for a time. We would hope you do not have another biopsy at all. .

    • How are you Rick? Are you healthy now?

  • angela


    And thanks for being available for us to ask questions. My daughter-in-law was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Is there something you could offer that might help her?

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Dear Adiba,

      Check her pH, and if it is low you can help her to become more alkaline with sodium bicarbonate.

  • Yvonne Stewat-Taylor

    I used it on a very bad plastic burn last week and it has healed without even a significant blister, ran it uder cold water for five mins and added a teaspoon of bicarb, as soon as it starts to sting remove it and bandage, two days bandaged and no scaring either hardly any pain and no burst blister. I have used it twice now on water infections, have not even seen a GP Doctor for over twelve months now, no more ani biotics for me bicarb has a good number of medical uses, and it costs nothing, so the big pharmas will hate this knowledge beign public as it affects their trade.

    My husband has recurrence adrenal gland cancer, with wide spread to liver, lymph nodules and abdominal wall. Past four months he is suffering from whole body edema. Urine test shows 4+ protein. He would like to have treatment with soda bicarbonate. Do you recommend him to start with the soda bicarbonate treatment orally, as IV or both.



    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      You really need to get a consult with Dr. Sircus for an appropriate answer to your questions regarding your husband’s serious condition.
      Please see:

      It is really difficult to discuss individual problems here on this site, and much more information is needed from you to make appropriate recommendations.

      It is likely that both IV and oral sodium bicarbonate would help your husband, but also a number of other things on Dr. Sircus’ protocol should be given serious consideration.

    Dated: May 1st 2012

    My dad who is 80 years old has vocal cord cancer. He went through radiation twice in 1.5years (only radiation – no chemo both times). It has been 2 months since his second radiation and doctors told us that radiation is not working and the vocal cord tumor is still there.(The tumor went away after the first radiation, but reappeared again after 6 months so they went for radiation the second time around too). He lost his voice recently and a week back had to undergo Trachesotomy as he had difficulty breathing. The doctor said that the cancer has not metastasized, even though it has it has spread a bit.

    We started sodium bicarbonate therapy 2 days back, by taking it orally twice a day, keeping the solution in the mouth for some time and swallowing it – once in the morning after his breakfast and then at night just before he goes to bed, so that its effects persist and works as he sleeps. He makes sure that the sodium bicarbonate solution is in his mouth and in contact with vocal cord for at least 2-3 minutes each time he takes it.

    My QUESTION is : 1)Will the sodium bicarbonate help cure/break up or reduce his vocal cord tumor that is still present AFTER Radiation. I mean, is the baking soda therapy going to work on those tumors that exist even after RADIATION.

    2) How long do we have to continue with the sodium bicarbonate therapy for it to work? Is it at least a couple of weeks or as long as a couple of months.


    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      You can start the sodium bicarbonate therapy at any time, even in late stage cancers and it shouldn’t matter that radiation has already been given.While it would be better to start bicarbonate treatment before the radiation took place it can still be tried. There really is no telling how long this type of treatment will take as everyone and their cacers are different and a lot more goes into it such as a person’s dietary comittment, and medical history.

    My wife was diagnosed with Invasive lobular carcinoma she went through mastectomy and is now undergoing chemotherapy. She had 5cm tumor with 31 lyph nodes involved.She will be going through radiation followed by Tamoxofin for five years. Please advise how can we administer the baking soda treatment in this situation and what sort of results are expected

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Dear Umar,

      So sorry to hear about your wife’s problems.

      She can stil use the sodium bicarbonate but I guess the results depend a lot on whether or not all of the cancer is removed. and what damage has occurred from the radiation therapy, The sodium bicarbonate can be used per the protocols described in the e-book on sodium bicarbonate and the demonstrations by Vernon Johnston who cured his prostate cancer with sodium bicarbonate.
      I would recommend that you get a personal consultation with Dr. Sircus to discuss her needs at this time. Too bad she has to take the Tamoxofin for so long. Magnesium would also be extremely important for her and perhaps lifestyle changes and a switch to a more alkaline diet would help prevent any reocurrance.

  • Lany

    Dear imv a staff,
    My sister 57 years old recently diagnosed meningioma parasagital tumour in the brain.
    Can oral sodium bicarbonate help her? Help me with the dosage pleasee
    Please reply asap

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Dear Lany,

      There are a number of things on Dr. Sircus’ protocol that might help your sister including bicarbonate. You or your sister need to get a personal consultation with Dr. Sircus to determine the best dosages. Please consider this, in addition to reading his book on sodium bicarbonate. You will need to raise her pH to 8 for a week or so and then stop and take a break , then go back on it again. Use pH paper to check her pH daily.

      Consultation info:

    I don’t beleive there has been any research on Ammonium bicarbonate (ammonia baking powder/ hartshorn), but it may have similiar applications to regular baking soda in treating cancer, with the additional benefits of sulforaphane ( from the ammonium sulfate). It does create CO2 when it comes in contact with acids and would possibly induce a stronger CO2 action (as it is a more powerful leaving agent) inside tumors, while doubly attacking the cancer with it’s sulfur content. Could be mixed with honey or maple syrup and taken orally.

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Thanks Noah,

      Interesting information and we will look more deeply into this. I see from a quick scan on the net that ammonium bicarbonate is a natural product commonly used as an active ingredient in some pesticides, and also used in baking. Ammonium bicarbonate/hartshorn is a salt, NH4HCO3 whose breakdown components ( NH3, H2O, and CO2 ) are all volatile, thus providing leavening.

      Is it also known as “smelling salts”. ? looks like smelling salts are actually ammonium carbonate and not bicaronate and there is often confusion over this. The odor is very strong and can knock you over. Ammonium bicarbonate breaks down to carbon dioxide, water and ammonia and is water soluble. It is a pre-cursor to sodium bicarbonate. .

      It does require heating to be activated. some say sodium bicarbonate does. (when used as a leavening agent)

      Its deemed not- toxic by the FDA and the EPA and is approved as a food additive…..(in the tested and recommended amounts) and I didn’t see anything on amounts used in this quick scan of the net.

      I have yet to look at the sulphur component of ammonium bicarbonate.

      One other problem I noted is the cost compared to sodium bicarbonate. It costs about $50 for a 500 gm amount on one site and on another it costs $8-13 for a 2 0z container……much more than sodium bicarbonate costs. Being a precursor, it is stronger than bicarbonate, but dosages for cancer were not seen by me.

      If you have any more information or references to its use in treating cancer or other problems with acidity in the body, please share them with me. You can email me at :

      I think we need to be careful in using a stronger substance in cancer treatment or to bring pH up, as this can become detrimental causing a prolonged alkalosis which can be very serious. Generally the use of the gentler sodium bicarbonate should begin its action on turmor and pH within about 1-4 weeks. But is use should certaily be looked into. thanks again!

  • Juhlie

    Have you had any experience or know of any cases where people have given their dogs sodium bicarbonate to change their PH levels? Our vet has some concerns about it since dogs are generally more acidic then humans because they eat raw meat…She has an appointment on Tuesday to have the sodium bicarb directly pumped to the tumor, we are going to do it once a week…do you think that will be enough?

    Thank you

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Juhlie so far we haven’t heard of anyone using sodium bicarbonate on dogs that I’m aware of.

      And I’m not sure of what treatment schedule Dr. Sircus would recommend for dogs. You would need to get a consult with him for that info….he can also consult with your vet if desired. A lot would depend on weight of the dog, etc. And your vet should be sure to read up on Dr. Simoncini and his cancer treatments with sodium bicarbonate. He can even be reached through email which is listed on his site.

  • Juhlie

    Thank you for your help. We are going to start it orally, but are not sure how much to give her (she weigs almost 60lbs). Is ther any information on dosage and dogs in the Ebook? Just to clarify would it be better to administer it through general IV or pipe it directly onto the tumor?

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      We don’t have any information on dosing for dogs…..sorry about that.

      Dr. Simoncini believes that the more directly you give sodium bicarbonate the better …..he goes IV whenever possible directly to the tumor….but Dr. Sircus believes you can affect the life of a tumor with solely topical and oral bicarbonate with IV only if if the timor is large , over 3cm, and or deep as in the bone tissue itself.

  • Juhlie

    My dog has been diagnosed with bone cancer. We have the option of doing sodium bicarbonate through IV, directly on the tumor in her left front humerus, or orally. What is the most effective treatment for her?

    Thank you for your help.

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff

      Bone cancer is one of the most difficult to reach. Probably a combination of both oral and IV would be the best bet.

  • melvin

    Until now… why no one seems to claim that this cure really works… 🙁

  • Maria

    a friend of mine sent me an email re: baking soda power of curing cancer a few months ago. I learnt that one of my colleagues has breast cancer, now it has extended to the lymph system. I would like to know the dosis and administration. My friend is fighting the cancer with natural remedies, so I think she would be willing to give it a try. Can you help?
    Thanks, Maria

  • melvin

    @claudia, why cant there be any significant number of people claiming that Soduim Bicarb is a cure for CANCER? Why don’t you make irrefutable documents of cured patients so the whole world will know, right? Is that hard to do? Or you’re just like them trying to get into the bussiness…

    This is really a sick world we live in!

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      There are documented accounts of people who have been cured with sodium bicarbonate therapy for cancer…..however the mainstream medical and pharmacological associations are not interested in these so they hold no water.

      But look at Vernon Johnson’s testimony for one:

      I am aware of some organizations that are now collecting and collating information on people being treated and cured with sodium bicarbonate but who knows when they will publish or make public their findings? Do you have the money to invest in doing appropriate clinical trials with sodium bicarbonate and cancer? None of the allopathhic group are interested despite all the informration we have found on this subject….it would not benefit them financially to assist any one of us in the alternative medicine field to make this a more credible cure… they do what they can to actively oppose and speak against it or hide the information. They ” bully” most people suffering with cancer into believing that they will die if their traditional methods are not followed asap.

      Treatment with sodium bicarbonate is still a fairly new concept……

      Please see Dr. Sircus’ essays :

      and many others he has written on this subject, as well as his book on Sodium Bicarbonate and cancer, where you will find testimonies and videos on people who have benefited from this treatment.

        Hi Claudia can the protocol Vernon used kill the metastasize in lungs

        • Yes Shannon it can be used for any cancer. For lung cancer there may hbe some adjustments in delivery such as using nebulization instead of just oral intake of supplements.
          Claudia French

        • Hi Shannon,

          Yes it is possible, however Dr.Sircus might suggest some alterations for treating lung cancer, such as nebulizations and use of the other things on his protocol.

  • melvin


    If this treatment really works, not that i don’t believe it, i’m just very confused why does the medical world wont accept it as a effective treatment? millions of people die because of cancer! why not share the truth to the dying people. this will greatly help people from the third world country who cannot afford those expensive treatments. and for you, people who knows the truth, why not push it so everyone has an equal chance of surviving.

    and if this is just another medical hoax, may God have mercy on your soul!

    @ Dr Elkanah Agbevenu, pls tell us your findings by submitting to the whole world, very solid evidence that this treatment really works. please!

    may our God bless those people who try to help save lives!

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      Sodium bicarbonate treatment for cancer is a threat to the pharmaceutical companies who exist to keep us sick and make as much money as they can. Sodium bicarbonate treatment is inexpensive and thus they want to do anything possible to make it seem unworthy.

      Thanks Roko for posting all these links to Dr. Sircus’ essays on baking soda and cancer. Loved seeing the video of Vernon Johnson making up the mixture that has helped him, it will be very helpful to so many who ask how to make this sodium bicarb, molasses and water solution that he drank daily to get rid of the prostate cancer. Thanks for finding this and Dr. Sircus is going to feature that video in an upcoming newsletter!

    Will the baking soda be effective in treating rheumatoid arthritis?
    I’m already using the mag/chloride and it’s be extremely helpful more than anything that I have tryed so far. I was unable to tolerate the iodine. Is the kelp in the adequate dose just as effective as the iodine?

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      keeping your pH at alkaline levels 7.3-7.4 would be very helpful for you, so a trial on sodium bicarbonate would not hurt.

      Kelp is being cautioned against due to the radiation in Japan and unreliability of sources for adequate testing.

    You made my heart jump Dr. My heart literally jumped for joy when I read your letter. I read what you said to my wife and her reaction was the same. A doctor who puts his patient first, who actually wants to cure them instead of just treating their symptoms. Wonderful !!

      I was diagnosed with stage four liver,colon and rectal can er four months ago. For a four week period I took sodium bicarbonate,magnesium, b17, tumeric and green and fruit juicing. Three quarts a day. I then went to mexico for five two hour B17 intravenous treatment. At the end of this 5 week period I was cancer free. Was just retested and remain free of cancer after four months. Hope this helps.

    Remission AML, 26 months. Researching daily bicarb benefits during remission.

  • We have been concerned with the forecasts of “The limits to growth” since 1972. Since no-one is interested and we live an a society in denial we have formed our own group, the Island Bay World Service (

    The initial forecast was for crisis and collapse around mid-century. Study of many other more complex global models and associated research, and just watching events unfold, have led us to a crunch point of 2030, the same as the UK Chief Science Adviser, and we have published a book “New Zealand 2030, the world’s lifeboat” and printed copies of a handout “Twenty years to disaster”.

    This article suggests that the crunch may come sooner. I expect that we will witness another foreshock (just as the 1970s gave foreshocks to the 2008 oil peak), struggle through it, and move on to worse as the years go by in continuing spin and hypocrisy.

    Our current effort is to stimulate a campaign “Rugby World Cup, don’t come”, as the extensive efforts of most of New Zealand are aimed at more tourism, burning of oil and production of greenhouse gases. If only someone were listening we could then present the full picture, including food. If only science were not destroyed and cobbled in New Zealand, a group of scientists like our Commission for the Future (1978-82) could study this information critically and give us educated information. We want to serve the people but we are unemployed and not well off.

    John Hammel said “The UN is using Food as a weapon and will continue to do so, especially as it and water become scarcer. Weather control is also a factor here, its being used to destroy crops and create food shortages. Read up on HAARP.”

    I URGE YOU TO DO THIS. The food shortages have been contrived from the weather weapon HAARP which works in conjunction with chemtrails.

    Global warming is just an elite scam. I am an organic farmer and KNOW OUR SKYS and local growing conditions. I have recorded the chemtrail jets on film… a great number of us are awake and aware downunder and are ready to expose this SCAM. The Powers that be (note the logo on this site) have global warming all wrapped up in a nice package for you.

    A fleet of chemtrail planes are now working over the South Island of New Zealand now which disgusts me – They are blocking the sun over our major farm producing & tourist areas. No rain for weeks and now that the crops are cut for harvest we have torrential rain. Strange moulds are appearing on the plants and all the honey bees have gone (due to EMF waves). Not only have the bees dissapeared but suddenly there is not a white butterfly or an aphid in site.

    As John said – grow a garden, preferably under glass as the fallout of the chemtrails is contaminating the land with heavy metals and god knows what else.

    Don’t be sucked in by the nonsence fed to you in the mainstream media/government websites about this issue – the truth is available to the diserning mind. Use the internet while you can. HAARP will eventually be used to cut all communications.

    Stock up on UNFLORIDATED water, plant & save the seed (not the kind produced by Monsato)

    Our hearts go out to you all.

  • I read that last week (early Jan) Kenya finally got rain, however, too much! and with dessicated soils most has simply washed the remaining topsoil away and caused flooding.Even Home gardens are struggling in Aus, cool start meant slow germination, the sudden heat/cold thats been happening has confused the plants too much and harvest, if any, is little.50 corn seeds in-20 sprouted- and only 12 ears produced and they are partially fertilised, ie patchy results , you need to eat 3 to get the usual amount of food,:-( and they were in well prepared soil with regular watering..
    Mark, as always, sage advice!

  • Good scary write up on a couple of approaches for depopulation. I agree with John Hammell’s comment RE weather control (HAARP). I think also, just as you nailed the global warming scam, you should re-examine peak oil for the scam that it is. I can suggest googling William Engdahl and Lindsey Williams for starters. Ciao for Now

  • I find this article interesting! The point is back to victory gardens atc. I do not depend on my GOV. to do anything. God gave use the knowledge to survive. The biggest part is, He (God) showed a squirrel how to collect nuts etc. and get ready for winter. Where I live we get ready in the summer. Plan ahead and live.!

  • The UN is using Food as a weapon and will continue to do so, especially as it and water become scarcer. Weather control is also a factor here, its being used to destroy crops and create food shortages. Read up on HAARP. More people need to learn about growing food in their yards and about canning the way people did during the depression and during WW2 when people had “Victory Gardens.” More people need to do rooftop water collection, build greenhouses and learn about permaculture. More community gardens should be built. We’re building one right now where I live.
