     Most of us are going to be surprised to find out that there is an oncologist in Rome Italy, Doctor Tullio Simoncini, destroying cancer tumors with sodium bicarbonate.[i] Sodium bicarbonate is safe, extremely inexpensive and unstoppably effective when it comes to cancer tissues. It’s an irresistible chemical, cyanide to cancer cells for it hits the cancer cells with a shock wave of alkalinity, which allows much more oxygen into the cancer cells than they can tolerate. Cancer cells cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen. Sodium bicarbonate is, for all intent and purposes, an instant killer of tumors. Full treatment takes only days, as does another cancer treatment that heats the cancer cells with laser generated heat. (At bottom see combining ph shift with heat.)

The extracellular (interstitial) pH (pHe) of solid tumours
 is significantly more acidic compared to normal tissues
. [ii]

     Case one: A patient diagnosed with pulmonary neoplasm of the lung, underwent treatment with sodium bicarbonate, before submitting to surgery to remove part of the lung.  Treatment consisted of sodium bicarbonate administered orally, by aerosol, and IV. After first treatment reduction of nodules and absorption was evident, and after 8 months was no longer visible at all. Treatments also reduced size of the liver and results were confirmed by both X-ray and CAT scan.

     Studies have shown how manipulation of tumour pH with sodium bicarbonate enhances some forms of chemotherapy.[iii] Proteins can be modified both in vivo and in vitro by increases in acidity. In fact pH is the regulatory authority that controls most cellular processes. The pH balance of the human bloodstream is recognized by medical physiology texts as one of the most important biochemical balances in all of human body chemistry. pH is the acronym for "Potential Hydrogen". In definition, it is the degree of concentration of hydrogen ions in a substance or solution. It is measured on a logarithmic scale from 0 to 14. Higher numbers mean a substance is more alkaline in nature and there is a greater potential for absorbing more hydrogen ions. Lower numbers indicate more acidity with less potential for absorbing hydrogen ions.

     Our body pH is very important because pH controls the speed of our body's biochemical reactions. It does this by controlling the speed of enzyme activity as well as the speed that electricity moves through our body. The higher (more alkaline) the pH of a substance or solution, the more electrical resistance that substance or solution holds. Therefore, electricity travels slower with higher pH. If we say something has an acid pH, we are saying it is hot and fast.  Alkaline pH on the other hand, biochemically speaking, is slow and cool.

Cancer tissues have a much higher concentration of
 toxic chemicals, pesticides, etc then do healthy tissues.

     In 1973, a study conducted by the Department of Occupational Health at Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem found that when cancerous breast tissue is compared with non-cancerous tissue from elsewhere in the same woman's body, the concentration of toxic chemicals such as DDT and PCBs was "much increased in the malignant tissue compared to the normal breast and adjacent adipose tissue."[iv] This should say something to the oncologists of the world about chemical etiologies that are going undiagnosed and untreated.

     Part of any successful cancer treatment includes chelation and detoxification of heavy metals and a host of toxic chemicals, which are all invading our bodies’ everyday. It is literally raining mercury, uranium contamination is increasing, lead we are discovering is even more toxic than anyone ever believed and is even in the bread that we eat, arsenic is in our chicken, the government still wants you to get your yearly mercury flu shot, dentists of course are still using hundreds of tons of mercury exposing patients to internalized toxic waste dumps (mercury vapors from hell), fluoride is still put in the water and chlorine is breathed in most showers. This just covers a small slice of the toxic disaster that is the hallmark of life in the 21st century.

     The IMVA recommends alkaline foods and sodium bicarbonate so that the pH of the blood remains high, which in turn means that the blood is capable of carrying more oxygen. This in turn keeps every cell in the body at peak efficiency and helps the cell eliminate waste products. Detoxification and chelation will proceed more easily and safely under slightly alkaline conditions. Increased urinary pH reduces oxidative injury in the kidney so it behooves us to work clinically with bicarbonate.

Patients receiving sodium bicarbonate achieved urine pHs
of 6.5 as opposed to 5.6 with those receiving sodium chloride.
This alkalinization is theorized to have a protective effect against
 the formation of free-radicals that may cause nephropa
                                                                                      Dr. Michael Metro

     Body ph level changes are intense in the profundity of their biological effects. Even genes directly experience external pH. pH differentially regulates a large number of proteins. Increased oxidative stress, which correlates almost exponentially with ph changes into the acidic, is especially dangerous to the mitochondria, which suffer the greatest under oxidative duress. Epigenetics, which may now have begun eclipsing traditional genetics, commonly describes how factors such as diet and smoking, rather than inheritance influence how genes behave.

The great advantage of knowing the prime cause of a disease
is that it can then be attacked logically and over a broad front.
                                                                                       Dr. Otto Warburg

     Dr. Otto Warburg, two times Nobel Prize winner, stated in his book, The Metabolism of Tumors that the primary cause of cancer was the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory cell chemistry by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a fermentation process, which can be triggered only in the absence of oxygen at the cell level. What Warburg was describing was a classic picture of acidic conditions. Just like overworked muscle cells manufacture lactic acid by-products as waste, cancerous cells spill lactic acid and other acidic compounds causing acid pH.

     After we just saw how important sulfur is in human health and how useful a basic chemical like sodium thiosulfate can be, we now get a crash course in the power of sodium bicarbonate and the act of instantly turning cancer cells alkaline. Might as well shoot a guided cruise missile at them - so effective, safe, quick and precise is sodium bicarbonate, inexpensive as well. Just a few pennies a day of it will keep cancer further away, keeping it at arms length from ourselves, patients and loved ones. It is something we can use to treat our water with as well, excellent to put in distilled or reverse osmosis water or any water for that matter.

     A true understanding of cancer is impossible without understanding why some tissues in the body are deficient in oxygen and therefore prone to cancer.  Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water (H2O) decomposes into H+ and OH-. When a solution contains more H+ than OH- then it is said to be acid. When it contains more OH- than H+ then it is said to be alkaline. When oxygen enters an acid solution it can combine with H+ ions to form water. Oxygen helps to neutralize the acid, while at the same time the acid prevents oxygen from reaching the tissues that need it. Acidic tissues are devoid of free oxygen. An alkaline solution is just the reverse. Two hydroxyl ions (OH-) can combine to produce one water molecule and one oxygen atom. In other words, an alkaline solution can provide oxygen to the tissues.

The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Below 7 is acid and above 7 is alkaline. The blood, lymph and cerebral spinal fluid in the human body are designed to be slightly alkaline at a pH of 7.4.

     At a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at pH 8.5 cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live. This has given rise to a variety of treatments based on increasing the alkalinity of the tissues such as vegetarian diet, the drinking of fresh fruit and vegetable juices, and dietary supplementation with alkaline minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, cesium and rubidium. But nothing can compare to the instant alkalinizing power of sodium bicarbonate for safe and effective treatment of cancer.

     Like magnesium chloride or sulfates are excellent emergency medicines, basic chemicals, nutritional in nature, sodium bicarbonate is a nutritional medicine meaning it cannot and will not end up controlled by CODEX. To control bicarbonate they would have to demand mothers stop making cake with it. We might thus identify sodium bicarbonate as an emergency medicine for cancer with the above supporting approaches working on broader levels to help overall physiology change to a degree where body chemistry is unfavorable for new cancer growth.  

     Cancer seems to grow slowly in a highly acid environment (because the acids cause it to partially destroy itself) and may actually grow more quickly as your body becomes more alkaline prior to reaching the healthy pH slightly above 7.4 where the cancer becomes dormant. Therefore it is important to get pH above 7.4 quickly. Once one has achieved a pH above 7.4, it is useful to monitor saliva pH regularly to ensure that the body remains sufficiently alkaline. 

Earlier and more frequent use of sodium bicarbonate was associated
 with higher early resuscitability rates and with better long-term neurological outcome. Sodium bicarbonate is beneficial during


    “The therapeutic treatment of bicarbonate salts can be administered orally, through aerosol, intravenously and through catheter for direct targeting of tumors.” All of Dr. Tullio Simoncini’s treatments with sodium bicarbonate are directed as specifically as possible to the organs involved, for example, vaginally as well as abdominally into the peritoneal space for cervical cancer, through the hepatic artery for liver cancer in order to get the solution as close to the affected area as possible. Sodium bicarbonate administered orally, via aerosol or intravenously. can achieve positive results in most tumors, including the brain, while others, such as the serious ones of the bones can remain the treatment. Dr. Simoncini, with the help of interventionist radiologists was able to reach those areas of the body that had previously been inaccessible. This was achieved through positioning appropriate catheters either in cavities for peritoneum and pleura, or in arteries to reach other organs.[vii]

The most effective measure to treat RT-induced mucositis in patients
 with head and neck cancer is frequent oral rinsing with a sodium
 bicarbonate rinse, to reduce the amount of oral microbial flora

     Case two: A nine-year-old child is hospitalized and diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma on the right humerus. Despite several chemotherapy cycles surgery on removed the humeral bone. Growth of three tumor masses continued despite continued efforts to stop progression. Sodium bicarbonate salts treatment were then started administered by catheter into the right sub-clavian artery in order to administer the salts (phleboclysis of 500 cc at five per cent) directly on the tumoral masses. Of the 3 masses shown by the scographic scan of May 7, 2001, whose size is respectively

a. 6,5 cm

b. 4,4 cm

c. 2,4 cm

     After the sodium bicarbonate salts treatment only one tumor was left, with a size of only 1.5 cm, which is most likely residual scarring, as shown by the echography of September 10, 2001.

      Sodium bicarbonate injection is also indicated in the treatment of metabolic acidosis which may occur in severe renal disease, uncontrolled diabetes, and circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe dehydration, extracorporeal circulation of blood, cardiac arrest and severe primary lactic acidosis. Sodium bicarbonate is further indicated in the treatment of drug intoxications, including barbiturates. Sodium carbonate has been found effective in treating poisoning or overdose from many chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs by negating the cardiotoxic and neurotoxic effects. [ix]

Sodium bicarbonate is useful in treating
neurological disorders in children.

          Knowledge of sodium bicarbonate is important for parents because the rate of childhood cancer is growing exponentially. But parents who resist the radiation burning, cutting and the lethal chemicals are regularly hauled before the courts only to have their children taken away from them. Oncologists are increasingly resorting to the justice system to have children made wards of the courts who then turn them over to medically irresponsible practitioners. It is inexcusable separating a child from his mother and father in the middle of a medical crisis. Adding to the stress by tormenting patients’ hearts and souls has nothing to do with safe or effective medicine. The naked truth is doctors and medical institutions have not earned the necessary trust for this level of intervention in people’s lives. With patient safety slipping year by year,[x] children are not safe in hospitals, much less so if forced at gunpoint from their parents embrace.

An extremely simple therapy used by physicians who treat autism is to supply a mild antidote that neutralizes the excess acids. The most convenient product is a nonprescription drug called AlkaSeltzer
Gold™. Do not use any other kind of AlkaSeltzer™. AlkaSeltzer
Gold™ is simply a very safe product (sodium and potassium
bicarbonate) that helps to neutralize excess acids of any kind.

     One mother wrote, “It worked so well for both of my children that the die-off was an uneventful experience, even though they both had very high levels of yeast.” The restoring of acid/alkaline balance also relieves many allergies. “These children also had grave disturbances in electrolyte chemistry, and tended to be acidotic (low CO). The data that unfolded was fascinating and clearly earmarked the acidosis and hypoxic state (low serum bicarbonate = low O2 levels). Potassium bicarbonate, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate and the like were used. Now we began to understand why so many children responded to Buffered C (potassium bicarbonate, calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate), and others needed a more specific buffer (in some children for example niacin was grossly depleted and they required niacin bicarbonate),” wrote Patricia Kane.

The acid/alkaline balance is one of the most overlooked aspects
of health, though many have written much about it. In general,
the American public is heavily acid, excepting vegetarians.

     Case three: A 62-year-old patient undergoes surgery in December 1998 for endometrial adenocarcinoma, followed by successive cycles of radiotherapy and anti-hormone therapy. Following the thickening of the peritoneum and the growth of several lymph nodes due to carcinosis; from the clinical point of view, the patient’s condition decayed with the presence of exhaustion, general swelling, intestinal meteorism, irregularity of evacuation, steady feeling of heaviness and blood pressure instability. Treatment with a 5% sodium bicarbonate solution administered alternately thru an endoperitoneal catheter and via IV showed rapid improvement to a normal condition of health. A final CAT scan confirms the regression of the peritoneal carcinosis and a stabilization of the size of the lymph nodes when compared to the preceding year.

The kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical
damage upon uranium exposure, military manuals suggest
doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize the
urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic
and promotes excretion of the nontoxic uranium-carbonate complex.
The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate diminishes the

    Case four: A 40-year-old patient underwent surgical intervention (left radical mastectomy) for mammarian carcinoma seven months earlier. After three months of chemotherapy, the patient is affected by: “diffused pulmonary and hepatic metastasis; bone metastasis particularly to the fifth and sixth lumbar vertebrae, with invasion and compression of the medullar channel, which is causing extreme pain which makes the patient unresponsive to any treatment.” All pain suppressant drugs – morphine included – are totally ineffective and the patient is totally prostrate even unable to sleep.  Believing that fungal colonies amassed in the medullar channel will respond to administration of sodium bicarbonate salts, lumbar injections are begun. 

     Dr Tullio Simoncini recounts: “As I administer it by slowly injecting 50 cc of sodium bicarbonate solution at 8.4 %, the patient tosses and with a thread of a voice confesses to me that she has slept only two hours in the last week. Exhausted, she whispers to me: “If only I could sleep half an hour tonight.” But the day after, she calls me on the phone and says: “I have slept all night”. After two more lumbar injections of the bicarbonate salts in the next month, the pain disappeared completely.  Magnetic Resonance imaging reports performed before and after treatment were defined by hospital head of the radiology department as "shocking."

      Sodium bicarbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is commonly used as an antacid for short-term relief of stomach upset, to correct acidosis in kidney disorders, to make the urine alkaline during bladder infections and to minimize uric acid crystallization during gout treatment. Prescription sodium bicarbonate products are given by injection to treat metabolic acidosis and some drug intoxications. Sodium bicarbonate is available as a nonprescription medical as well as a general house hold item. It is also used with other non-prescription drugs for short-term treatment of various conditions to treat anything from fever to moderate pain.

Sodium bicarbonate possesses the property of absorbing heavy
 metals, dioxins and furans. Comparison of cancer tissue with
 healthy tissue from the same person shows that the cancer tissue
 has a much higher concentration of toxic chemicals, pesticides, etc.

     Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes acids present in gases (in particular hydrochloric acid, suphur dioxide, hydrofluoric acid) to form sodium salts (sodium chloride, sodium sulphate, sodium fluoride, sodium carbonate), which are all known as Residual Sodium Chemicals. Sodium bicarbonate can be made into a paste salve with vinegar, it relieves burning from bug stings (particularly bee stings), poison ivy, nettles, and sunburn. It is used as an antacid to treat acid indigestion and heartburn. Mixed with water in a 10% solution can soften earwax for removal.

    Because sodium bicarbonate has long been known and is widely used, it has many other names including sodium hydrogen carbonate, sodium bicarb, baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda, bicarb soda, saleratus or bicarbonate of soda. It is soluble in water. This white solid is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. It has a slight alkaline taste resembling that of sodium carbonate. It is a component of the mineral natron and is found dissolved in many mineral springs. It is also produced artificially. World wide production is on the scale of 100,000 ton/year. Sodium bicarbonate is primarily used in cooking (baking) where it reacts with other components to release carbon dioxide, that helps dough "rise."

     It is commonly used to increase the pH and total alkalinity of the water for pools and spas. Sodium bicarbonate can be added as a simple solution for restoring the pH balance of water that has a high level of chlorine. It is sometimes used in septic tanks to control pH and bacteria.

Sodium bicarbonate-rich mineral water in conjunction with a
low-salt diet may have a beneficial effect on calcium homeostas

    Distilled water is not safe, it lacks bicarbonates and minerals and yes, it is acid forming to the body. Yet it is an excellent aid in detoxification and chelation for its purity pulls on toxicities in the body. Part of the reason why our body is acid is that it lacks enough bicarbonate necessary to neutralize the acid. Whenever the water lacks the proper bicarbonates to neutralize the water in distilled water your body basically becomes a little more acid. But we can easily treat distilled or reverse osmosis water by adding bicarbonate and magnesium and perhaps even some sodium thiosulfate. (The art and science of water treatment will be covered in The Waters of Life, another IMVA publication due out later this year. The conscious use of water favorably increases medical outcomes, often it even determines the prognosis. You cannot separate out hydration from pH. Dehydration would certainly push the body toward acidity.)

pH of the blood is the most important factor to
 determine the state of the microorganisms in the blood.

     The native chemical and physical properties of sodium bicarbonate account for its wide range of applications, including cleaning, deodorizing, buffering, and fire extinguishing. Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes odors chemically, rather than masking or absorbing them. Consequently, it is used in bath salts and deodorant body powders. Sodium bicarbonate tends to maintain a pH of 8.1 (7 is neutral) even when acids, which lower pH, or bases, which raise pH, are added to the solution. Its ability to tabletize makes it a good effervescent ingredient in antacids and denture cleaning products. Sodium bicarbonate is also found in some anti-plaque mouthwash products and toothpaste.

    Sodium bicarbonate also is indicated in severe diarrhea which is often accompanied by a significant loss of bicarbonate. Vigorous bicarbonate therapy is required in any form of metabolic acidosis where a rapid increase in plasma total CO2 content is crucial † e.g. cardiac arrest, circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe dehydration , and in severe primary lactic acidosis or severe diabetic acidosis.

     Sodium Bicarbonate Injection, USP is administered by the intravenous route. In cardiac arrest, a rapid intravenous dose of one to two 50 mL vials (44.6 to 100 mEq) may be given initially and continued at a rate of 50 mL (44.6 to 50 mEq) every 5 to 10 minutes if necessary (as indicated by arterial pH and blood gas monitoring) to reverse the acidosis. Caution should be observed in emergencies where very rapid infusion of large quantities of bicarbonate is indicated. Bicarbonate solutions are hypertonic and may produce an undesirable rise in plasma sodium concentration in the process. of correcting the metabolic acidosis. In cardiac arrest, however, the risks from acidosis exceed those of hypernatremia.

    In the current system, if a promising compound can’t be patented, it is highly unlikely ever to make it to market — no matter how well it performs in the laboratory or in emergency room situations. The hormone melatonin,[xiv] sold as an inexpensive food supplement in the United States, has repeatedly been shown to slow the growth of various cancers when used in conjunction with conventional treatments. Dr. Paolo Lissoni, another Italian oncologist has written many articles about this hormone and conducted clinical trials. But he has despaired over the pharmaceutical industry’s total lack of interest in his treatment approach.

     We need a new approach to fight cancer, one that will work safely and effectively since the majority of us are now destined to have to suffer through cancer at one point or another in our lives. The situation in the field of oncology is horrendous and in the area of childhood oncology they have earned their place in the book The Terror of Pediatric Medicine, (which one can download as a free e-book.)

      Most people today cringe at the idea of finding a cancer then slashing, burning and poisoning it to smithereens. Most would agree that the mainstream cancer approach offers only marginal benefits at best, and providers push screening and aggressive treatment in part because they have nothing else to give, and also because it’s very profitable.

If the body’s cellular metabolism and pH is
 balanced it is susceptible to little illness or disease.

     Since 1971, when President Nixon declared war on cancer, the budget of the National Cancer Institute has increased to $4.8 billion from half a billion and  cancer rates are still going up. For most of the past half-century, medical treatment of invasive tumors like those of the breast and colon has relied mainly on drugs, radiation or both, in effect carpet-bombing the DNA of cancer cells. These highly toxic treatments do not address the root causes of cancer and are extremely dangerous, medical approaches involving the highest risks.  

The great variety of cancers must reflect a fundamental
mechanism by which the disease arises, one
that has not been so clearly apparent until now.

     Though allopathic medicine already uses sodium bicarbonate it will not any day soon turn to its own arsenal of already available safe and inexpensive medications like sodium bicarbonate or magnesium chloride. The medical industrial complex seems unwilling to change its views on cancer so patients will need to quietly ask their doctors for intravenous bicarbonate without specifying it as a substance they want to use to cure their cancer. It will be easier to find someone if one approaches with a need to treat acidic conditions than the actual cancer. Few doctors are willing to risk their licenses so it is better not to put them in an uncomfortable situation that they cannot control.

The closer the pH is to 7.35 - 7.45, the higher our level of
health and well being and our ability to resist states of disease.

     Sadly this does not address the need for the use of catheters which target tumors more directly thus pushing us toward a more complete protocol that will target cancer in a more general and comprehensive way. This needs to be done anyway because killing the tumor with a rush of alkalinity that provokes an oxygen rush into the cells will not prevent the condition from reoccurring. Though we can think that acidity is a basic cause of cancer a more basic cause is addressed when we look at what leads to the acidic conditions that are so prevalent in our bodies today. 

Sodium bicarbonate is an anti-fungin substance
that is very diffusible and thus very effective.

     Dr Tullio Simoncini says, “It is useful to consider the extreme sensitivity of fungi to saline and electrolytic solutions. These solutions, because of their extreme capacity for diffusion, are able to reach all the myceliar biological expressions, including the most infinitesimal ones. Salts and bicarbonates, by making the “terrain” completely inorganic, eliminates the slightest organic fonts that fungi could use for nourishment. In this context, sodium bicarbonate, which is currently used in children’s oral candidoses, appears to be a simple and handy weapon capable of uprooting, inhibiting, or attenuating any neoplastic formation wherever it is possible to easily apply it.”

Cancer is actually a four-letter word — ACID,
especially lactic acid as a waste product due to the
 low oxygen level and waste products of yeast and fungus.

    For centuries, medicated baths have been one of the first lines of treatment for psoriasis. Even today, with sophisticated immunosuppressive treatments available, Dead Sea salts and spa waters are recognized to be beneficial in the management of psoriatic patients.

     To assess statistically the efficacy of sodium bicarbonate baths in psoriasis patients, thirty-one patients with mild-moderate psoriasis were studied. Almost all patients who used NaHCO3 reported a statistically valuable improvement. NaHCO3 baths reduced itchiness and irritation; in general, the patients themselves recognized a beneficial impact on their psoriasis, so much so that they have continued to bathe in NaHCO3 even after the end of the study. [xv]

    “Sodium bicarbonate therapy is harmless, fast and effective because it is extremely diffusible. A therapy with bicarbonate for cancer should be set up with strong dosage, continuously, and with pauseless cycles in a destruction work which should proceed from the beginning to the end without interruption for at least 7-8 days. In general a mass of 2-3-4 centimetres will begin to consistently regress from the third to the fourth day, and collapses from the fourth to the fifth. Generally speaking, the maximum limit of the dosage that can be administered in a session gravitates around 500 cc of sodium bicarbonate at five per cent solution, with the possibility of increasing or decreasing the dosage by 20 per cent in function of the body mass of the individual to be treated and in the presence of multiple localisations upon which to apportion a greater quantity of salts,” instructs  Dr Simoncini.

     In the early stages of acidic pH in the body’s tissues, the warning symptoms are mild. These include such things as skin eruptions, headaches, allergies, colds, flu and sinus problems. These symptoms are frequently treated (manipulated) with antibiotic drugs and suppressive medications. The longer and the deeper we become acidic the more our illness takes hold so it’s best to fight acidic conditions early on and in every presenting clinical situation. Certainly a highly toxic drug like anti viral Tamiflu won’t do a fraction of the job sodium bicarbonate will do especially if it’s combined with magnesium chloride and iodine as well as high levels of vitamin C.

     In late stages of acidic pH we need to turn to the most alkaline minerals to increase our throw weight of alkalinity into cancer cells. Mass spectrographic and isotope studies have shown that potassium, rubidium, and especially cesium are most efficiently taken up by cancer cells. This uptake was enhanced by Vitamins A and C as well as salts of zinc and selenium. The quantity of cesium taken up was sufficient to raise the cell to the 8 pH range. [xvi]

     On April 2, 2007 Health Day News published, “Patient safety incidents in U.S. hospitals increased by three percent overall from 2003 to 2005, and the error gap between the nation's best- and worst-performing hospitals remained wide, a report released Monday found. America's top rated centers had 40 percent lower rates of medical errors than the poorest-performing hospitals, the study showed.”

     There seems little grace left in medicine and it is a disgrace that allopathic medicine does not even use its own emergency medicines, proven heavies like magnesium sulfate and chloride, sodium bicarbonate and iodine to anywhere near a thousandth of a percent of their real medical potentials.  

Combining pH shift with Heat

      In the opening paragraph of this chapter we mentioned killing cancer cells with lasers, with heat.

Give me a chance to create fever
 and I will cure any disease.

2,000 years ago

     Fever is one of the body's own defensive and healing forces, created and sustained for the deliberate purpose of restoring health. The high temperature speeds up metabolism, inhibits the growth of the invading virus or bacteria, and literally burns the enemy with heat. Fever is an effective protective and healing measure not only against colds and simple infections, but against such serious diseases as polio and cancer.

    The idea of destroying cancer with heat is certainly not new and has been widely accepted for a very long time, but has had very limited applications because it was finally concluded that, in order to ensure destruction of the cancerous growth, it is necessary to reach a temperature deadly to healthy cells as well. Many attempts have been made to bypass this problem and some methodologies have been developed like: localized hyperthermia, laserthermia, radio-fractionated hyperthermia and TTT. But they all have limitations and cannot complete the job, because they cannot achieve total necrosis and, unless the entire mass of neoplastic tissue is destroyed, the cancer will continue to grow. But:

Hyperthermia gives cancer a hard time:

1. removing accumulations of stored toxic chemicals that cause cancer

2. improving circulation so that tissues are both nourished with oxygen and flushed of acidic metabolic wastes

3. weakening or even killing cancer cells that have a lower tolerance for heat than healthy cells.

    Thus we should easily conclude that far-infrared sauna treatments are going to help a cancer sufferer no matter which way we slice the treatment protocol. But for a more targeted heat to kill cancer tumors we have Dr Antonella Carpenter who has perfected the treatment of cancer cells with heat through her use of lasers. She generates the death of the cells by suffocation via heat. Dr Carpenter, a physicist with a clinic in Little Rock, says, “As long as the entire neoplastic mass is exposed to the laser light, for the correct amount of time, the success is complete and the results, as well as the healing stages, are always the same.” Her cancer treatment is called Light Induced Enhanced Selective Hyperthermia, which in itself pretty much summarizes all the characteristics of this new therapy. With this form of treatment cancer cells reach a deadly temperature level quickly and are subject to irreversible damage and therefore die, either immediately or within 48 hours.

     In a separate chapter we will be talking about hyperthermia in another context, that of the hot bathtub which we will learn to fill with healing substances like sodium bicarbonate. We will be creating our own hot springs, healing pools that will do wonders for our health. Medical treatments of the first order can be had right inside your very own bathtub.

Following public outcry, Israel banned these chemicals from being used on feed for dairy cows and cattle. Over the next ten years, the rate of breast cancer deaths in Israel declined sharply, with a 30% drop in mortality for women under 44 years of age, and an 8% overall decline. At the same time, all other known cancer risks--alcohol consumption, fat intake, lack of fruits and vegetables in the diet--increased significantly. During this period, worldwide death rates from cancer increased by 4%. The only answer scientists could find to explain this was the reduced level of environmental toxins.

[vii] With the aim to reach the maximum effect, sodium bicarbonate should be administered directly on the neoplastic masses which are susceptible of regression only by destroying the fungal colonies. This is possible by the selective arteriography (the visualisation through instrumentation of specific arteries) and by the positioning of the arterial port-a-cath (these devices are small basins used to join the catheter). These methods allow the positioning of a small catheter directly in the artery that nourishes the neoplastic mass, allowing the administration of high dosages of sodium bicarbonate in the deepest recesses of the organism. With this method, it is possible to reach almost all organs; they can be treated and can benefit from a therapy with bicarbonate salts which is harmless, fast, and effective – with only the exception of some bone areas such as vertebrae and ribs, where the scarce arterial irrigation does not allow sufficient dosage to reach the targets. Selective arteriography therefore represents a very powerful weapon against fungi that can always be used against neoplasias, firstly because it is painless and leaves no after effects, secondly because the risks are very low.

Human and animal reports suggest that hypertonic sodium bicarbonate may be effective therapy for numerous agents possessing sodium channel blocking properties, including cocaine, quinidine, procainamide, flecainide, mexiletine, bupivacaine, and others.

[x] Patient safety incidents in U.S. hospitals increased by three percent overall from 2003 to 2005, and the error gap between the nation's best- and worst-performing hospitals remained wide. America's top rated centers had 40 percent lower rates of medical errors than the poorest-performing hospitals, the study showed. The fourth annual HealthGrades Patient Safety in American Hospitals Study, put out by HealthGrades, an independent health care ratings company, examined over 40 million Medicare hospitalization records at almost 5,000 hospitals from 2003 to 2005.

[xiv] One of the most important supplements for the breast cancer patient is high doses of the hormone melatonin at bedtime. Melatonin blocks estrogen receptors somewhat similarly to the drug tamoxifen without the long-term side effects of tamoxifen. Further, when melatonin and tamoxifen are combined, synergistic benefits occur. Melatonin can be safely taken for an indefinite period of time. The suggested dose of melatonin for breast cancer patients is 3 mg to 50 mg at bedtime.   Caution: Although melatonin is strongly recommended for breast cancer patients, interleukin-2 (IL-2), which often is combined with melatonin, should be avoided by breast cancer patients. IL-2 may promote breast cancer cell division.

[xvi] "A mass spectrographic analysis of cancer cells showed that the cell membrane readily attached cesium, rubidium and potassium, and transmitted these elements with their associated molecules into the cancer cell. In contrast cancer membranes did not transmit sodium, magnesium, and calcium into the cell: the amount of calcium within a cancer cell is only about 1% of that for normal cells. Potassium transports glucose into the cell. Calcium and magnesium transport oxygen into the cell. As a consequence of the above, oxygen cannot enter cancer cells so the glucose which is normally burned to carbon dioxide and water undergoes fermentation to form lactic acid within the cell. This anaerobic condition was pointed out by Warburg, as early as 1924. Potassium, and especially rubidium and cesium are the most basic of the elements. When they are taken up by the cancer cells they will thus raise the pH of the cells. Since they are very strong bases as compared to the weak lactic acid it is possible that the pH will be raised to values in the 8.5 to 9 range. In this range the life of the cancer cell is short, being a matter of days at the most. The dead cancer cells are then absorbed by the body fluids and eventually eliminated from the system." - Dr. Brewer


More info on sodium bicarbonate to cure cancer
Over the last decade, Dr. Ralph Moss, at the University of Arizona has been researching the use of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) as a potential treatment for cancerous conditions.(1)

At the same time Robert J. Gillies and his colleagues have demonstrated that pre-treatment of mice with sodium bicarbonate results in the alkalinization of the area around tumors. (Raghunand 2003)

Using sodium bicarbonate in the treatment of a cancerous condition has been found to "enhance the anti-tumor activity" of other anticancer drugs. The alkalizing effects are very similar to the recently published research of injecting O2 directly into tumors where such direct administration of oxygen also facilitated the action of chemotherapy.

This year the same researchers reported that sodium bicarbonate increases tumor pH (i.e., making it more alkaline) and also inhibiting spontaneous metastases (Robey 2009). They also showed that oral sodium bicarbonate increased the pH of tumors and also reduced the formation of spontaneous metastases in mice with breast cancer. Oral administration of sodium bicarbonate also reduced the rate of lymph node involvement.

Both Dr. Moss as well as Dr. Simoncini, an oncologist from Rome, Italy, found it striking that the oral administration of bicarbonate was able to reduce the spontaneous formation of metastases in mice with breast cancer.  Dr. Moss stated, "This is impressive work that needs to go forward." 

Sodium bicarbonate has been used for decades in chemotherapy, but until the last few years, baking soda has received little attention. Now, in great part due to the work, clinical research and reporting of Dr. Moss, Dr. Simoncini and Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of the pH Miracle Living Center and founder of the New Biology(R), there are over 50,000 web sites with information on this subject.
There is little dispute that cancer is an ACIDIC condition which can be measured in terms of tumor pH.   During many years of previous clinical research preceding Dr. Moss and Dr. Simoncini, Dr. Robert O. Young, the world's leading nutritional microbiologist and live and dried blood microscopist, had long reported that cancerous tissues are significantly more acidic than normal tissues.  Dr. Young also reported that manipulation of pH with oral and/or intravenous sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate can help to restore healthy tissue and reverse cancerous conditions.

It is amazing to note the lack of follow-up research by the medical and pharmaceutical industry over the last 80 years in view of the fact that in 1932, Dr. Warburg received a Nobel prize for discovering the cause of cancer.  He determined that cancerous cells and tissues were acidic and also low in oxygen.  According to Dr. Young, "When alkalinity increases the supply of hydroxyl ions or oxygen to the cancerous tissue, the increase in hydroxyl ions or oxygen combines with the excessive hydrogen ions in and around the cancerous cells or tissues creating water and neutralizing the acid which was the original cause of the cellular or tissue breakdown.  Simply put, dietary and/or metabolic acid is the cause of all cancerous cells and tissues."  In view of this astounding, demonstrable and easily verifiable information, it is incredible that America loses more than 500,000 lives to cancer each year and cancer costs continue to exceed a quarter trillion dollar annual industry.

Sodium bicarbonate is the universal mainstream treatment of acidosis.  It is used every day by oncologists to neutralize the heavy acidic nature of their chemical and chemotherapeutic agents which are offten quite toxic.  Sodium bicarbonate is also used routinely in many clinical situations as herein noted including many peer--reviewed journals:

    1) Severe diabetic ketoacidosis (2)
    2) Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (3)
    3) Pregnancy (4)
    4) Hemodialysis (5)
    5) Peritoneal dialysis (6)
    6) Pharmacological toxicosis (7)
    7) Hepatopathy (8)
    8) Vascular surgery operations (9)

Medics and emergency room medical doctors are accustomed to participating in a flurry of activity when trying to save a persons live after a cardiac arrest--inserting IVs and breathing tubes, performing defibrillation to restart the heart, etc.  Sodium bicarbonate is a constant performer under such conditions and is more commonly used than magnesium injections, which is traditionally at the top of every doctor's protocol for cardiac arrest.

Mainstream oncologists recognize the routine involvement of late stage infections which Dr. Young refers to as outfections in all cancerous conditions.  Medical savants also recognize that bacteria, yeast and mold is present in over forty percent of all cancerous conditions.  (10) The most recent research in this area demonstrates how even viruses, which Dr. Young describes as crystallized acid, is present in fifty percent of certain types of cancerous conditions. (11)

Dr. Robert O. Young has written or co-authored over 15 books in over 18 different languages on the subject of acid having given rise to biological transformation of cells or the birth of bacteria, yeast and mold in all dis-ease or so-called disease and cellular or tissue conditions. This would also include late stage outfections which are the result of an over-acidification of the internal environment.

According to Dr. Young, there is a simple definition of cancer - ACID.  Anyone who has seen a cancerous tissue will admit that cancer is a rot that is breaking down the body and that will destroy it if left unchecked.  When the body is rotting, when its cells and tissues are demonstrating dire distress, when certain colonies of cells become acidic and rotten and change their type of metabolism from respiration to fermentation, when dietary and metabolic acids are not properly removed through the four channels of elimination, including urination, respiration, defecation and perspiration, then you will have a certain over-acidic condition that will eventually take shape depending on where the acid is deposited.  Dietary and/or metabolic acid which are not properly eliminated are generally deposited in the colloidal connective and fatty tissues.  The body deposits acids into the tissue in order to preserve the delicate pH balance of the blood at 7.365.  This is why there is such
  an increase in breast, brain and prostate cancers.

Dr. Young's position has been clearly stated for more than two decades.  "No matter what one observes or describes as cancer, no matter what atypical physical manifestation one might claim, no matter what nuance one might observe in the formation and prolifereation of cancerous cells, it should be obvious by now that all the names and various kinds of cancerous conditions are essentially the same.  It is clear that in any type of rotting cells or tissue, the bacteria, yeast and mold are a result of those rotting cells and tissue and NOT THE CAUSE!

Dr. Young also states, "bacteria, yeast/fungi, and mold are not the cause of a cancerous condition but are the result and the evidence of cells and tissues biologically transforming from a healthy state and to a unhealthy state."  Dr. Young astutely observed that, "over-acidification of the body leads to the development of chronic yeast and fungal outfections and ultimately a cancerous condition of the cells and tissues."

Fundamentally, cancer is a relatively simple over-acidic condition of the blood and then tissues that leads to an oxygen deficiency dis-ease.  The use of sodium bicarbonate increases hydroxyl ions or oxygen that buffers dietary and/or metabolic acids preventing the rotting or fermentation of cells and tissues and thus prevents and/or reverses a cancerous condition.

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 dis-esase, 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.

Candidly, all of this health and medical information is clearly omnipresent, and cancer has become such an onerous, frightening, disasterous, and economic monstrosity in our world today, that a brief discussion of the decades of duplicitous and compounding human error may be at least somewhat instructive.

Cancer is easy to define because it defines modern man.  Humanity is in deep acidic trouble with its cancerous condition for the simple reason that we are in deep acidic trouble with ourselves, our relationships, and our civilization.

There are no real medical precedents to draw upon when it comes to the use of sodium bicarbonate; it is an obvious panacea.  Its broad usefulness is so clear and self-evident that virtually no research has sought to point out the obvious nor attempt to expand upons its potentially unlimited value.  Sodium bicarbonate is simply and clearly that useful, safe and effective for ALL sickness and dis-ease.  It is a given.

But it now appears that much of the ongoing medical debate over its use has more to do with human confusion, medical group-think, financially driven myopia, and illogical thought processes than anything having to do with observable phenomenon or simple reality. That is what sociologists, observers, and various investigators appear to be discovering and increasingly reporting in the public debate over the issue of universal health care.

People often work backwards from a firm conclusion to find supporting facts, rather than letting evidence inform and direct their views.  A totally rational person would first lay out and then evaluate objectively the pros and cons of sodium bicarbonate and its use in a cancerous protocol.  But even the best professionals become attached to their own self-serving beliefs and self-protective egos.  We humans often form emotional attachments that become wrapped up in our image, reputation, personal identity and connecting beliefs about medicine and health.  This attachment often unfolds irrespective of the facts of the matter.  This pervasive, gut-level attachment then renders our personal theories and subjective beliefs all that more potent and meaningful in our minds than simple, pragmatic evidence and answers.

Thus, this same human condition renders many, scientists and non-scientists alike, as vulnerable to a phenomenon of tightly grasping various beliefs, even in the face of scientific evidence to the contrary.  It then becomes an enormous challenge including a test of personal courage and self-confidence to be able to reevaluate one's own world views and medical belief system.  Yet, in order to be of service to humanity, practitioners must be able to effect such a process of repositioning, even if we must reverse our own previously held thoughts, beliefs, statements, writings, and positions.

Some of the greatest changes throughout history have occurred as a result of the efforts of a single individual or very small groups.  Humanity depends on very few medical and science leaders to offer the latest and the best information.  Individual egos do get in the way, and some scientists, medical doctors, university professors, and health politicians are known for their substantial egos and scientific airs.

Regardless of what one's ego says, the scope of dietary and metabolic acids and the comprehensiveness of the problems they usher into the world are vastly important in science, medicine, health and prevention.   Sadly, it will one day be understood, in retrospect, that it was the affectively damaged, intellectually deficient, or characteroloically irresponsible practitioners who will have totally ignored the importance of acids as the cause of ALL sickness and dis-ease.   As German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer reminded us, "There are three steps in the reveleation of any Truth.  In the first, it is ridiculed; in the second, resisted, in the third, it is considered self evident."   Eventually, only those practitioners with their proverbial head-in-the-sand will have ignored the reality of sodium bicarbonate's powerful action and how it dramatically reestablishes the intracellular alkaline environment and its miraculous efficacy wherein conditions are over-acidic and causing
  sickness and dis-ease.

The action of sodium bicarbonate is, for all intents and purpose, instant and effective in preventing and reversing a cancerous condition for many victims.  Most cancer sufferers are able to reverse their cancerous condition in 12 to 16 weeks, although, depending on previous treatment and certain constitutional or bodily variables, some reversals may take up to 9 months.  In the end, even the most effective sodium bicarbonate application is not as powerful, and therefore not a healthy alternative or substitute, as Dr. Young's pH Miracle alkaline diet including pure, hydroxyl, ion-rich alkaline water.

Sodium bicarbonate--that simple white stuff called baking soda--can be purchased in any supermarket in the world and is a world class anti-bacterial and anti-fungal with no known negative side-effects.  If one needs to "punch in the face" a late stage outfection of any kind, simply use sodium bicarbonate.  If a person wants to eliminate bacteria, yeast or mold colonies in the blood or tissues, baking soda should be a number one choice.  Dr. Young explains, "sodium bicarbonate can be used like a fire extinguisher spraying the tissues with alkalinity and preventing or reversing latent tissue acidosis. It can be used orally and/or transdermally to reach all parts of the body through systemic effect via the blood."

Medical researchers such as Dr. Tullio Simoncini and Dr. Robert O. Young have identified the alkaline substances uniquely able to penetrate the volumetric acidic cancerous tissues, such as sodium bicarbonate, magnesium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate and calcium bicarbonate.  These elements are manufactured in the body to prevent acidic build-up and to maintain the alkaline design of the body.  When the body is perfectly balanced and slightly alkaline, we are healthy, strong and happy.

Sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium bicarbonate, when used in conjunction with other equally safe substances, can form the basis for a natural chemotherapy, which has proven to be greatly more effective then significantly more toxic and acidic interventions.  Most people are all too aware of the horrors that await those who travel down the road of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation.  The question becomes: Why travel down these pits to bodily suffering and devastation when safer, vastly more affordable, natural, and highly effective answers like sodium, magnesium, potassium and calcium bicarbonate are so readily available?

Special Note:  Dr. Young suggests using a combination of four powerful cell salts of sodium, magnesium, potassium and calcium bicarbonate which are available under the name of pHour Salts.

Special Recommendation:  Dr. Young also suggests sodium and potassium bicarbonate use for anyone undergoing cardiac angiography, CT (computed tomography) or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) to protect their kidneys.  The incidence of medical imaging has soared over the last few years across all types of tests.  Doctors have long known that exposure to contrast agents can cause damage in seemingly healthy kidneys. The Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology warns that kidney damage or injury can arise after undergoing certain common medical imaging procedures and poses a serious health threat.

A meta-analysis of 17 randomised controlled trials has shown that pre-procedural treatment with sodium bicarbonate-based hydration is the best strategy to prevent contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). 12

Many medical imaging techniques, including cardiac angiography and CT scans, often involve the use of contrast agents, substances that contain iopamidol, iodixanol and barium with their own toxic downside.  Dr. Solomon found that 31 percent of research subjects experienced negative health effects after imaging test. Overall, 13 percent of patients experienced a major event, such as death, stroke, heart attack, or end-stage renal disease.  Those who developed contrast-induced kidney injuries had twice as many long-term negative health effects as compared with patients who did not suffer kidney damage.  No doubt much of this harm can be avoided if sodium bicarbonate is used appropriately.
