Bicarb Magical Mineral Supplement

Published on March 30, 2017

ph Adjust

Correct, we are not talking about MMS, which is toxic and dangerous and is easily replaced with iodine, which does many if not all the things MMS is supposed to be famous for. Above is a picture of a real magical mineral product that tastes good—so is easy to take enough of it to make a huge difference in one’s health status. pH Adjust, with its magnesium, bicarbonate and potassium minerals is not only good medicine—it is wonderful.

All three of these mineral medicines are used in emergency room and intensive care wards where they can be used to save lives. I have written a book about sodium bicarbonate and personally through the years have used a sodium and potassium bicarbonate capsule. However, after going through my first jar of pH Adjust I have some important things to report.

It was one thing to write and publish the relationship between pH and voltage and it is quite another thing to be taking this easy to swallow formula and then measure my voltage in varying parts of my body with a Biomodulator and see my readings higher than I have ever tested them before.

According to Annelie Pompe, a prominent mountaineer and world-champion free diver, alkaline tissues can hold up to 20 times more oxygen than acidic ones. When our body cells and tissue are acidic (below pH of 6.5-7.0), they lose their ability to exchange oxygen, which cancer cells just love. Researchers found that an increase of 1.2 metabolic units (oxygen consumption) was related to a decreased risk of cancer death, especially in lung and gastrointestinal cancers.

Secondly, I have been able to get my pH higher than ever because I find it easy to take enough of the formula. I was never comfortable taking pure sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate is not so easy to swallow. The bicarbonate pills never did it for me therapeutically but pH adjust does. Just thinking about how easy and how much magnesium I get at the same time reinforces my willingness to keep on taking it even though I do not have cancer.

Therefore, magic is the word, much more magical than MMS, which tastes like chlorine. However, miracle minerals are scientific and have been proven in emergency rooms for many decades. pH Adjust could end up being a primer cancer treatment as is sodium bicarbonate. Few people know and understand the importance of magnesium in cancer and its treatment.

pH Adjust

pH Adjust is a highly effective tool (supplement) to help maintain proper acid-alkaline balance beyond a person’s diet alone. It means that whenever our pH levels dip into an acidic zone, we can rapidly and effectively return to an alkaline state independently of our immediate dietary circumstances. From this perspective, pH Adjust is like an insurance policy: a useful means to attain alkalinity when diet alone is not enough, which in today’s modern age it almost never is.

pH Adjust is a fluffy, mild-tasting power formula you add to water, juice, or other liquid drinks in small amounts (about 1/4 teaspoon) that rapidly “adjusts” your pH levels toward alkaline. Personally I start the day with ½ a teaspoon which gives me 50 percent of the minimum amount of magnesium I or anyone needs for the day but sometimes that amount gives me the runs. Some people cannot tolerate anywhere near these dosages so some caution during the first few days of administration is prudent.

pH Adjust contains potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate. A one-gram serving (about a rounded ¼ tsp) contains about 300 mg of bicarbonate, 260 mg of carbonate, 142 mg of potassium, 105 mg of magnesium, 48 mg of sodium, and 100 mg of glycine.

Potassium is excellent for heart health. A randomized double-blind trial published in the January 2010 issue of the journal “Hypertension” studied the effects of potassium supplementation on cardiovascular risk factors, endothelial function and bone turnover in people with mild hypertension. In the study, participants who took potassium bicarbonate for 12 weeks achieved a significant decrease in stiffness of large elastic arteries, improvement in left ventricular diastolic function and endothelial function, and reduction in left ventricular mass.

Baking soda is cheap and effective, but consuming it has drawbacks. Its key flaw is sodium. Sodium bicarbonate provides too much sodium (salt), and as such, its consumption must be monitored so as to avoid elevated sodium levels. Too high sodium levels create known risks for high blood pressure (hypertension) and cardiovascular health though sodium bicarbonate is not known to raise blood pressure.

pH Adjust is formulated to avoid high sodium levels. One key to the formula is its 3:1 ratio of potassium to sodium. These are balanced amounts, as well as levels the body itself favors in terms of absorption and retention. Moreover, these levels maintain a balance known to be heart-healthy as does increased intake of magnesium.


Baking soda literally tastes “salty” because it is full of sodium. Many people have to struggle and can no longer stomach the salty taste. Cancer patients have had to continue to “slug” down baking soda and have had to suppress their overriding desire to spit it out—it’s simply too salty!

Now we can happily drinking our pH Adjust in water every morning (and sometimes afternoon) which tastes good, and now I am taking before bed. It is slightly sweet in taste (partly due to its glycine content). It goes down smoothly with no detectable “salty” taste. My pH readings are higher than ever before for the very reason that this formula is just so easy to take.

I no longer recommend adding molasses to bicarbonate for cancer treatment but do universally recommend squeezing a fresh lemon into sodium bicarbonate, especially for those who are already low in stomach acid. It also makes the bicarbonate more tasty.


I would say pH Adjust has everything I would ask for in an alkalinizing, pH balancing formula. It alkalinizes me–FAST! It provides critical minerals required for health in balanced amounts, including potassium and magnesium in easily assimilated forms. It is low in sodium. It tastes good. What more can you ask for? $19.95 (less when ordering 2 or 3). One container provides 250 one-gram servings (about a rounded 1/4 teaspoon). Even if you were to take larger amounts (like I do), say up to one teaspoon daily, there would be nearly 63 servings per container.

No one can really know the effects of such an excellent pH balancing formula as pH Adjust without accurately measuring their pH levels. That is the reason the producer offers Hydrion litmus paper. Any good-quality litmus paper should work just fine but this paper shows smaller increments of change than the paper that tracks pH between 1 and 14.

I am exceptionally happy for myself, for my readers, and for my Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol to have this formula. Because it covers bicarbonate, potassium and magnesium at a more than reasonable cost, it makes up the backbone of my protocol.

  • Bert Schultz

    is phadjust equivalent to magnesium bicarbonate?

  • Roberto

    Interesting. You delete my question which showed that you are not aware of high school chemistry. If you were to really look inside at how you control information on this site, not allowing dissenting opinions to be expressed, you would see a lack of self-honesty. Of course such a looking is very unlikely since you want to continue to live in your dream world where you are a paragon of virtue. You don’t see that taking others ideas and selling them as your own is in any way “wrong”. I can only hope that some truth comes up for you.

    • Roberto

      The original post which was not allowed was indicating that citric acid reacts with the bicarbonate to yield a citrate salt and water.
      Thus, adding lemon juice is counter-productive. Basic high school chemistry.

    • Nona

      Thanks for your post. I have been wondering about the fact that the good “doctor” rarely post from a TCM standpoint, so I asked someone from NM. This was his reply: I think that national certification happened in the early to mid 80’s. It did not hold nor do I believe it holds any legal status. It was developed like many of the state licenses and regulation to try to get insurance money. The legal status is given by the states and their licensing. The designation of OMD is given to people who hold a valid New Mexico state license. Maybe he once had one then went inactive in which case he should NOT be able to use this title as I read the law. Now “honorary” I have never heard of although he could have had someone somewhere write him up a certificate. I don’t believe he can call himself honorary if his license is inactive.
      Sounds like he is just trying to build his credibility by saying these things which is understandable. All this licensing and national certification don’t mean too much to me–and I was chairman of the acupuncture board at one time and watched the essence of this art be drained out by these certification processes. But it sounds good to the public.

      • Tomas Zebulnski

        This is an interesting thread. I must say I have noticed things which don’t seem to “fit” with the knowledge claimed by “Dr” Sircus. Thanks for posting this information.

  • Bob

    Are there any side effects of concerns for certain people taking it?

  • Roberto

    Adding lemon juice means the citric acid will react with the bicarbonate. You end up with a citrate salt (sodium or potassium) plus water.
    Is that what you want?

    I’ve added iodine to my regime of charcoal and probiotics in fighting a mold allergy since June of 2016. Just can’t seem to rid it from my body. I can have a few good days and then I feel struck down again and can hardly breath. Any other suggestions would be helpful.

    • Chuck

      Ozone, Ozone and Ozone!!!!
      If you would like to discuss it call me.

      • kate

        Thanks chuck it was nice talking to you. Thanks for the info.

        • Diane

          What do you all think about these products? My doc who was sick twice with mold wrote a book, and these are what she sells at her office. It’s sounds like a good idea also to do the nose protocol Dr. Dennis suggests. Hope this helps. I was just listening to ozone treatment for teeth.

          • Diane

            The product is called EC3 .. for clothes, testing, cleaning, nasal.

          • kate

            I would like more info on the nose protocol. I did the H2O2 for about 20 days it was getting pretty difficult with the nasty after taste. went through a box of tic tacs. Still have it, intravenous might be a better way. But I have now started a cleaner diet and for some strange reason I knew castor oil is good for things and started applying on my chest at night and it seems to help me sleep better. the other Dr’s agree not one thing work for everyone. I have also used charcoal and pro biotics. I think I’m getting some where but not sure because sometimes going outside brings it all back. My M.D told me the other day, there is no way to rid the body, you can just help with medication. Then said I should talk to the allergist about de sensitizing my system from this fungus. Sounded like a challenge to me. LOL

    • Jennifer

      Kate – I am a little late to this post but check out Chris Masterjohns website. He did a podcast on mold.

      • kate

        Ty, but I’m finding you can’t have enough information on this subject. I got desperate so took the prednisone the Dr. gave me. But instead of 20 mg a day 10X2. I broke the tablet up to make them 5 mg. Gosh I couldn’t believe it took away every symptom. But I knew this was a bad idea but I liked feeling like my old self again. My Dr. was good and said it is not meant for long term use which I already knew, but I thought until I can get out of my situation I needed to do something. Any way it is now 3 weeks after the Dr. said no on the refill and I’m back to feeling like crap with no energy at all again. I just finished reading about Shoemaker and his protocol. It seems this is one tuff cookie to get rid of. I did the ozone therapy with food grade peroxide at 35% got pretty yucky by the third week. So until I can move I’m sort of stuck dealing with this. But I fully intend to read the information on Chris Masterjohns website, thank you.

    • Frances

      Kate, I find the information about mold by Ingrid Naiman and her various web sites and products very helpful.

      • kate

        Frances, I will check it out, as I am still battling with this, thank you.

  • Jean Miranda Hall

    Thank you for your informative references re PH balance.
