Sparkling Water

The Journal of Nutrition conducted a study of sparkling and still mineral water. The study participants were asked to drink 1 liter of either the sparkling or still each day for two months, followed by two months on the other water. It was found that drinking sparkling water[1] brought about significant reductions in the level of low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (generally regarded as a risk factor for heart disease), as well as a significant increase in levels of high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (generally taken to reduce heart disease risk). These and other biochemical changes induced by drinking sparkling water were estimated to reduce the women’s risk of developing heart disease over the next decade by about a third.

This study is just the tip of the iceberg. I am adding over 100 new pages to the second edition of my book Sodium Bicarbonate – A Full Medical Review. This edition will be ready in a few weeks and all the readers of the first edition just need to download again to review all the editions. It still contains the subtitle Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment but with the addition of the new materials the book covers using bicarbonate for kidney disease and diabetes as well as an alternative to using vaccines for the swine flu and regular influenza as well as the common cold.

A significant part of the book directly addresses the reasons why bicarbonate and CO2 are profoundly important for human health and why both are necessary for the successful practice of medicine and the treatment of cancer. The basic reason that sodium bicarbonate is such a wonderful cancer treatment is that it directly increases CO2 levels in the body and this has the direct result of allowing more Oxygen to reach the cancer sites which hate O2. A $2.61 pound of sodium bicarbonate will outperform a $100,000 dollar chemo treatment because it targets the most fundamental aspects of cancer physiology, which are acidity and low Oxygen conditions.

Some people feel that sodium bicarbonate is not recommended for long term preventive use because the body will become resistant to its action. Though this might be true in a narrow sense for intravenous sodium bicarbonate administration, it is not true for oral and transdermal since bicarbonate and CO2 are constants in human physiology. I have recently written a chapter addressing the bicarbonate skeptics who have published online reasons for not using bicarbonate. One must read deeply into the long clinical use and the science of bicarbonate physiology before one comes to conclusions and it seems very few make the effort.

There is no doubt though that pH levels should be maintained by other means, by alkaline diets and drinks but there is no resisting the power of sodium bicarbonate to radically shift upwards the pH of tissues whether healthy or cancerous. One can overdue a good thing and drive alkaline rates too high causing other problems and I will publish shortly a chapter on contraindications for the use of sodium bicarbonate.

Dr. Robert Young concludes, “One is not likely to fall into a cancerous condition if one’s blood and tissues are in the perfect alkaline state of 7.365. To achieve this perfect alkaline state, free from all sickness and disease, one must have alkaline nutritional sufficiency including full alkaline hydration, ingestion of liberal amounts of green foods rich in chlorophyll to build healthy blood and tissues, and plenty of healthy alkalizing sun exposure. Then, add plenty of restful sleep, alkalizing exercise, relaxed conflict-free existence and a pristine alkaline environment (something that no longer exists in most areas of the world). One must also include freedom from dental amalgam, antibiotics, steroids/hormones, recreational drugs and vaccines in order to achieve extraordinary health and a cancerous free existence.”

Special Note: Again I ask your pardon for my neglect of this publication. We have been very busy preparing a series of new sites and are redoing the Winning Cancer site bringing it to a new level. In the next few days we will launch the Into the Ashes site, a Climate Change site, and a site called Agriculture and Natural World News. Once they are up and running I will start a blog which will contain daily communications and indications when new materials are posted to all of our sites, which will now be 15 in number.

My persistent publications on these real world issues follows a tradition I started with my Survival Medicine for the 21st Century compendium (2,200 pages), which represents all my writings up to the end of the third quarter of 2007. It amounts to 300 chapters and puts my entire work in the context of life as we are living it today. Medical practice and theory cannot divorce itself from the context of life. For instance we are living in the age of toxicity and are surrounded on all sides by an increasingly toxic environment as well as toxic vaccines, medicines and dental products like mercury containing dental amalgam and fluoride.

We also are living through a period where obese people are malnourished. Almost everyone today is suffering from nutritional deficiencies as well as increasing emotional and mental stress all of which is threatening to go off the Richter scale as life around us falls apart. The heart and soul of my protocol that uses magnesium oil, sodium bicarbonate and iodine as principle medical agents has a special significance for the world that is coming hard down the tracks.

It is my purpose not only to provide in-depth information about new ways to use old medicines that are inexpensive, safe and effective but also to highlight the world that is unraveling at an accelerating pace. We will need these medicines to survive the coming life challenges but we will not be using them like we should and not have them on hand if we see no reason to prepare and protect ourselves and our loved ones from the toxic insults that even come from our cell phones and wireless setups. Is not bad enough we have to suffer increasing blanketing of the earth from world wide mercury emissions and uranium oxide pollution that is not supposed to exist?

Did you know that being fired from a job increases the chance of having a heart attack? Makes sense but take that connection to a wider conclusion and recognize that what is happening on a financial, economic, political, social, environmental and legal level is going to explode negatively on the public’s health.


[1] Gas bubbles in carbonated water are created by adding carbon dioxide to plain water. Carbonated water does not contain phosphoric acid, which strips bones of calcium and causes blood acidity. Carbonated water has one ingredient that soft drinks lack: bicarbonate. Bicarbonate minimizes calcium loss from the bones. Since blood acidity is not excessive when consuming carbonated water due to bicarbonate, more calcium stays in the bones.

    I agree with the concerns expressed by Claudia 4 years ago! Why wasn’t this answered? Sparkling water is acidic: I just measured it with our pH stick and it was between 5 and 5.5. I also noticed that my own urine was acidic after drinking lots of sparkling water. So why is it good to drink what is canceling out the drive to make our bodies more alkaline??

      Janie,

      I have asked Dr.Sircus to address these questions more clearly….I hope we hear his explanation soon.

        Citrus fruits are also acidic, much more than sparkling water but are considered to be alkalizing because of their high mineral content. I am assuming the same is true for mineral water. If you actually read the study he is referring two, the ph of urine of the women was higher (less acidic) when drinking sparkling water.

    In my understanding you are mixing up two different things. Putting CO2 (carbon dioxide) or NaHCO3 (sodium bicarbonate) into water is not the same. The first should react rather slightly acidic while the bicarbonate turns the water slightly alkaline providing much needed HCO3- ions to the body and I absolutely believe in the benefits of bicarbonate! I acknowledge the results from the above study, but personally I don’t think sparkling water is beneficial.
    Also I have heard that in children with kidney function problems, the kidney recovers when you take away their fizzy drinks.
    I am not a MD though, please enlighten me where I go wrong!?
