Not easy to write an introduction to the third edition of this book. The first edition was entitled Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment. Then my New York Publisher came out with it in print with the title Natures Unique First Aid Remedy. This third edition Bicarbonate Medicine could be called pH Medicine, or Carbon Dioxide Medicine. It offers important new insights into using bicarbonates for all cancer patients, for people dying of or trying to prevent viral infections, and for every other disease like diabetes, heart disease, and others because bicarbonates treat one of the underlying causes of all diseases.
This volume will include Natures Unique First Aid Remedy merged with everything new I have learned about bicarbonates in the last ten years. When I first started writing about bicarbonate and cancer all those years ago, it was pioneering consciousness and risk-taking because it was inconceivable to the mainstream that something as simple as baking soda would save thousands of cancer patients lives.
Now it’s a slam dunk. We are now on the level of saying EVERY cancer patient should be doing Bicarbonate Medicine. It is almost on the same level as every cancer patient should stay fully hydrated, stay warm, and breathe correctly if they want to survive. It is as essential as breathing air and drinking water. You might as well deprive a baby of a mother’s milk as deprive cancer patients of bicarbonates.
Despite me having all the science and medical logic to back up my statement above, oncologist have dug their heads in the sand and refuse to look at something as simple and as safe as sodium bicarbonate, something that can significantly help their patients.
Yet, it was not until COVID arrived on the scene that it became apparent how deeply bicarbonate denial and rejection still is, as it has always been since the first days of the pharmaceutical industry. It was used in 1918 by doctors against the Spanish Flu successfully, and it could have been used to head COVID off at the pass because viruses are pH-Sensitive. But this is the last thing the medical establishment is interested in exploring because the only thing they want is to promote dangerous vaccines that are hurting more than helping.
Live Longer, Stay Healthier and Happier
The bottom line to bicarbonate and pH medicine, if you want to live longer and stay healthier and happier, take one of the three forms of bicarbonate every day. Research published recently in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology found that having balanced bicarbonate levels in your body reduces the chances of early death by 24 percent. The study examined data compiled in the Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study for 2,287 participants. “What we found was that generally healthy older people with low levels of bicarbonate had a higher risk of death,” Dr. Kalani Raphael said.
The study investigated pH, carbon dioxide, and bicarbonate in association with long-term survival. According to the University of Utah, “Critically ill patients with severe acid-base abnormalities have a very low likelihood of surviving their illness.” Bicarbonates can ride to the rescue. Sodium bicarbonate injections are sometimes indicated in the treatment of metabolic acidosis, which is an acidifying of your tissues due to kidney disease, uncontrolled diabetes, circulatory problems, anoxia, severe dehydration, severe diarrhea, drug overdose and some other diseases and conditions, according to the book “Medical Biochemistry: Human Metabolism in Health and Disease” by Miriam D. Rosenthal.
The study’s findings hopefully will assist clinicians in better assessing patient’s risk of premature death by analyzing their blood bicarbonate concentrations more closely, something doctors never do. Bicarbonate deficiencies increase as we age. Addressing those deficiencies with the three types of bicarbonates ensures we live a healthier and longer life.
Bicarbonates are miracle medicines, and just because baking soda is dirt cheap, do not overlook this in your anti-aging protocol. The practice of pH Medicine, which gives us a handle on CO2 levels in the blood, and thus oxygen levels, is handled best using bicarbonates.
The Three Bicarbonates
Sodium, potassium, and magnesium bicarbonate are miracle medicines. It continues to be a medical tragedy that the least expensive, most widely available safe, and effective medicine such as baking soda and the other two bicarbonates are overlooked.
Sodium bicarbonate, simple baking soda, is used in ICU departments, emergency rooms, and ambulances to save lives every day. Modern medicine has used bicarbonate for over a century. The urge to give bicarbonate to patients should be irresistible.
Dr. Lynda Frassetto of the University of California, San Francisco, says, “Insufficient amount of bicarbonates in our blood reduces our capabilities to manage (neutralize and dump) the acid our body produces. This is the cause of aging. The age of 45 is the average age when human beings start to show symptoms of diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, and many other adult degenerative diseases. And since we cannot manage the acid, we accumulate acidic wastes in our body. These wastes show up as cholesterol, fatty acid, uric acid, urate, sulfate, phosphate, kidney stones, etc.”
Dr. Frassetto attributes the reduction of bicarbonates in the blood as we age to generations of modern American diets. She also points out in another paper that the average diet today is high in sodium and low in potassium, contrary to the human body’s original genetic makeup.
A miracle happens when you give water to a person who has just come out of the desert. The person is saved and comes back to life quickly. To give bicarbonates to a bicarbonate deficient patient is much the same. Just about everyone today is bicarbonate deficient because most people are breathing too fast. Over-breathing drives CO2 levels down in the blood thus reducing bicarbonate levels.
Modern medicine will eventually find its way back to medical basics because that is what life is about. A universal super charged able to leap tall buildings type of protocol that every doctor, nurse, and patient can apply starts with the medical gases of hydrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide, then add bicarbonates, iodine, selenium, saturate the body with magnesium, vitamin C, heavy doses of D (sun when possible), and a wide selection of super-foods used easily in delicious tasting juices, and different types of fasting and you have medicine returning to its senses.
This is not a complete list, of course, of everything wonderful one can do. But when these fundamental substances are combined one can level medical mountains. We are talking core protocol whether for ICU conditions and late stage cancer or long standing chronic conditions including diabetes.
Simple, easy to learn and use, comprehensive, coherent, safe and effective. Too simple? OK, add glutathione, infrared light, exercise, medical marijuana and stay strong in B vitamins (I use an obscene amount of nutritional yeast) and must do breathing retraining and its more than mountains you will move.
One final word. To understand health and medicine completely it helps to see that most of modern medicine is an unhelpful attempt to compensate for our inability to fast, to restrict food consumption, to give our bodies a break so our cells can regenerate.
