Doctor: ‘Sodium Bicarbonate is a Killer of Tumors, Safer and More Effective Than Anything Else’


“Everyone should know about this and it is a betrayal of our humanity that most people still do not know.”
– Dr. Mark Sircus, Sodium Bicarbonate: Nature’s Unique First Aid Remedy

Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHCO3) is a form of salt that is found in nature in crystalline form, and is usually processed into the fine powder we know as baking soda.  Among its literally hundreds of household uses, baking soda is a most potent medicine that has been in use for over 150 years for a variety of diseases and conditions.

Bicarbonate is the active ingredient in baking soda.  It is safe because it is produced by the body in the stomach, pancreas and kidneys, and it’s alkalizing properties enable the body to neutralize and eliminate acids.  The buildup of acids in the body (as a direct result of the reduction of bicarbonates in the blood) damages the metabolism, reduces the cellular usage of oxygen, disables the proper function of enzymes, and is the literal cause of aging and all diseases.

Like the experiment most of us have done by adding baking soda and vinegar together, the fizzing that occurs is the production of carbon dioxide (CO2), and carbon dioxide is exactly what is lacking in the body during illness.  Contrary to what we’ve been told, carbon dioxide is not a waste product, an in fact, due to the fact that even anaerobic life forms (that do not require oxygen to survive) still utilize carbon dioxide, one could say that carbon dioxide is more fundamental to life than oxygen.  In the case of CO2 in our bloodstream, by way of what is called the Bohr effect, carbon dioxide releases oxygen from red blood cells so that it can be used by our cells.  Without adequate CO2 in the body, no oxygen can be used, and thus, cancer and disease begins to develop.  Bicarbonate, as found in baking soda turns into CO2 when in contact with acids, and that’s why its medicinal value is cherished by those who understand how it works.

When the body is malnourished from consuming a diet with toxic unsaturated fats, chemical additives, preservatives, and pesticides, the body’s production of bicarbonate is reduced and diabetes and other diseases begin to set in.  In an acidic environment cells cannot utilize oxygen during energy production, and this renders excessive acidity the primary cause of virtually all degenerative diseases including cancer, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, kidney and gall stones, and tooth decay.

“Pharmaceutical companies can charge all they want, and they do for their dangerous ineffective medicines.  But even in their wildest dreams of pharmaceutical executive do visions come for a drug they might fabricate that would match the fantastic medicinal properties of simple inexpensive baking soda.” – Dr. Mark Sircus

The Cancer Industries Secret Weapon

Oncologists have secretly been using sodium bicarbonate prior to, during, and after the administration of chemotherapy for decades to protect their patients from the deadly chemicals.  Not only has sodium bicarbonate been shown to enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy, but as Dr. Mark Sircus puts it, “science indicates that it might be the sodium bicarbonate that’s doing the helping and not the poisons.”

Those who survive the deadly treatment known as chemotherapy were likely saved by the sodium bicarbonate, and not the deadly chemotherapy poison pumped into their bodies.  “If you want to see how fast a person can hit the floor during chemotherapy just forget to mix in the bicarbonate and get out your stopwatch,” continued Dr. Sircus.

The quickest way to make cancer cells grow and spread more aggressively in the body is to increase the acidity of the bloodstream.  Conversely, nothing will disable, destroy and eliminate cancer cells faster than alkalizing the acid-dominant environment in which cancer cells thrive.  Baking soda is likely the most rapid and effective way to accomplish this.

Detoxifying Chemicals and Heavy Metals

According to Dr. Mark Sircus, “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, and other toxic materials,” and this is the primary reasons baking soda is used by mainstream oncologists before, during and after chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

By arming the body with the resource needed to neutralize and eliminate heavy metals and other chemicals poisons in the body, baking soda is effective in treating overdoses from a number of chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs by negating the toxic effects to the body.  It is one of the best antidotes to radiation poisoning, and old military manuals even suggest infusions of sodium bicarbonate to reduce the kidney toxicity of uranium and promote its excretion.

In January 2003, the results of a 10-year study in Bulgaria were published in the American Industrial Hygiene Association Journal.  Lead by Dr Gospodinka R. Pradova, two groups of people were examined, one of which worked in a polluted environment, and the other in an office setting without pollution.  The researchers found that those working in the polluted environment had fewer amounts of bicarbonates in their blood than those working in the un-polluted environment.  The simple truth is that the more polluted your environment, the more bicarbonates your body needs to deal with those pollutants and remain healthy.

People who Have Cured Cancer with Baking Soda

  1. Vernon Johnston – After being diagnosed with aggressive stage 4 prostate cancer, which had already spread to his bones, Vernon rejected all mainstream treatments and instead decided to focus on raising his pH since cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment.  The protocol he created for himself involved consuming a mixture of baking soda and molasses and consuming that numerous times per day.  After only a few weeks, Vernon’s doctor confirmed a complete reversal of prostate and bone cancer.  His story was written up in a California newspaper in 2008, and the exact protocol he used is detailed below in this article.
  2.  Italian Oncologist Dr. Tullio Simoncini has been using sodium bicarbonate to destroy tumors for many years.  He describes one of his early experiences with sodium bicarbonate in the following paragraphs:

“One of the first patients I treated was an 11-year-old child, a case which immediately indicated that I was on the right track.  The child arrived in a coma at the paediatrichaematology ward around 11:30 in the morning, with a medical history of leukemia.  Because of the child’s disease he had been taken from a small town in Sicily to Rome, through the universities of Palermo and Naples, where he underwent several chemotherapy sessions.  His desperate mother told me that she had been unable to speak with the child for days; that is, since the child had been on his journey through the various hospitals.  She said she would have given the world to hear her son’s voice again before he died.”

“As I was of the opinion that the child was comatose both because of the proliferation of fungal colonies in the brain and because of the toxicity of the therapies that had been performed on him, I concluded that if I could destroy the colonies with sodium bicarbonate salts and at the same time nourish and detoxify the brain with glucose administered intravenously, I could hope for a regression of the symptoms.  And so it was.  After a continuous intravenous infusion of bicarbonate and glucose solutions, at around 7pm, when I returned to the university, I found the child speaking with his mother, who was in tears.”

How to Heal with Baking Soda

A quick and effective way to consume sodium bicarbonate medicine is to combine it with maple syrup or honey at a 3:1 ratio, where 3 tablespoons of maple syrup mixed with 1 tablespoon of baking soda is a great mixture that goes down easy.

Bath Bombs contain baking soda, citric acid and essential oils for aroma.

Alternatively you can add 1 cup of baking soda into a bathtub for effective absorbtion, or probably the absolute best way to elevate your body’s CO2 levels and heal disease is to add a bath bomband magnesium chloride into your bath tub and bathe in it.

As you read above in the story of Vernon Johnston, using baking soda and molasses was literally the only treatment he did to cure his advanced stage cancer in only two weeks.  Perhaps the most logical approach to cancer treatment would be to use baking soda, along with your choice of any number of other anti-cancer medicines available, and while the reactions between taking multiple chemical drugs are completely unpredictable and often dangerous, taking multiple nutritional-based medicinal compounds together tend to result in a synergistic effect, where the healing that results is greater than could be produced by each individual compound on its own.

Vernon Johnston’s Baking Soda & Molasses Protocol

Some of you may want to know the exact protocol used by Vernon Johnston when he cured himself of cancer, so I have summarized it below:

Days 1-4:  Vernon began by consuming a mixture of 1 cup of water with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of black strap molasses.  He did the same thing once a day for the first four days, and after he noticed he felt fine and his pH was 7.0 (saliva) and 7.5 (urine), he decided to increase his dose.

Day 5: On day 5, Vernon doubled his dose and began drinking the same solution twice per day.  After reading that cancer cells become dormant at a pH of 7, and dead at a pH of 8.0-8.5, his goal was to achieve a saliva and urine pH between 8.0-8.5 and hold it for 4 or 5 days.  He used pH test strips to measure his pH, and stressed the importance of taking both saliva and urine pH into consideration since saliva pH can at times be a poor indicator of blood pH.

Day 6:  He continued taking two daily doses of his solution, and on day 6, his pH averaged out to be 7.25, and he felt slightly nauseous with stool that had a yellowish tinge.

Day 7: Vernon slowly increased his dose to build his confidence that he was going to be okay, so on this day he took 3 teaspoons in water with 1 teaspoon of molasses for his first dose, and on his second dose he went back down to the 2-teaspoon baking soda solution.

Day 8: Wanting to further increase his pH, Vernon took two teaspoons of baking soda in water and molasses three times over the course of the day.

Day 9: He noticed a little diarrhea, and felt a bit weak, but says that he “felt oxygen euphoria throughout the day. Like my body was breathing pure oxygen.”

Day 10: Vernon had a persistent headache at this point and noticed body sweats at night due to the extreme level of alkalinity he had achieved.  He took 4 pH readings over the course of the day and they were all in the mid 8’s.  He then cut back his dose on this day to a 2 teaspoon sodium bicarbonate solution in molasses and water, twice a day.

Day 11:  Day 11 was Vernon’s last day before going in for a body scan to assess the condition of his cancerous bones.  He noticed more diarrhea on this day that was slightly yellow, so he dropped back to 1.5  teaspoons baking soda and molasses/water solution two times on this final day.

“So there you have it.  That was my last day before the scan,” said Vernon, before adding that it’s important to take his baking soda solution two hours before or 2 hours after a meal to maintain the stomach acidity necessary for digestion.
