How Baking Soda Helps Cancer Patients

Baking SodaSodium bicarbonate, better known as baking soda, has been used for decades as a first line of defense against every kind of ‘acidic’ health problem – including cancer. Naturally, the question remains – is there any proof that baking soda is a defense against cancer or any other chronic dis-ease?

History has much to teach us about natural healthcare. In a booklet titled, Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Medical Uses – published in 1924, Dr. Volney S. Cheney explains his clinical successes in using sodium bicarbonate to treat both the common cold and flu. His comments are actually quite remarkable…

“In 1918 and 1919 while fighting the ‘flu’ with the U. S. Public Health Service it was brought to my attention that rarely anyone who had been thoroughly alkalinized with bicarbonate of soda contracted the disease, and those who did contract it, if alkalinized early, would invariably have mild attacks.”

Sodium bicarbonate has been and still is used to make the urine less acidic. This helps the kidneys get rid of uric acid and is used medically to prevent gout and kidney stones. Even athletes use sodium bicarbonate to improve endurance. In fact, cells that have enough bicarbonate consume more energy at rest – so they are better able to transport glucose and lactate.

Can baking soda help cancer patients heal naturally?

Dr. Mark Pagel, of the University of Arizona Cancer Center, is going to use a $2 million dollar grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the effectiveness of baking soda as a treatment for breast cancer.

This is a clinical trial on the use of oral baking soda for breast cancer. The grand was awarded because of the cancer research that Dr. Robert J. Gilles and colleagues have already successfully demonstrated with the pre-treatment of mice – using baking soda – to alkalize the area around cancer tumors.

They have shown that sodium bicarbonate increases tumor pH, inhibits spontaneous metastases and reduces the rate of lymph node involvement in mice with breast cancer. And, the news gets even better…

Baking soda has been shown to suppress malignancies; treat the acid-alkaline axis by balancing the pH of cells and tissues and increases cell voltage.

By increasing oxygenation – baking soda prevents cells from turning cancerous and returns malignant cells to a healthy state. Sodium bicarbonate has been recommended for weak cancer patients. In a few days of treatment with sodium bicarbonate the cells in the muscles perform better.

How does baking soda prevent cellular damage?

The pH level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our body. Chronic over-acidity corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked will interrupt all cellular activities and functions. In other words, over-acidity interferes with life itself. It is one of the root causes of cancer.

Every cell in the body requires oxygen to survive and maintain optimum health. The lower the ph – the less oxygen is available for the cells. This is shown when acid rain changes lakes; the fish suffocate because the lake binds up all the available oxygen.

The oxygen is there, but is no longer available and if you raise the lakes oxygen the lake will spring back to life.

How does ‘alkalinity’ help to prevent disease?

Keeping our pH within a healthy range also involves necessary lifestyle and dietary changes that will protect us over the long term. The use of sodium bicarbonate will give us a jump start toward increased alkalinity. In essence, sodium bicarbonate could be considered a ‘natural medicine’, and ought to be respected. Keep in mind, if our pH goes far above (or below) the ‘acceptable’ range – our risk for disease goes way up.

Drinking bicarbonate of soda dissolved in water has long been used to relieve the signs and symptoms of arthritis, indigestion, heartburn, and infection – among other maladies. Traditionally, sodium bicarbonate has been used as an antacid.

Did you know that we produce our own bicarbonate? Thanks to the work of our pancreas – bicarbonate neutralize acids coming from the stomach to make the environment right for pancreatic enzymes to be effective.

A word of caution – before using baking soda

One of the precautions in using sodium bicarbonate is its sodium content and it is thus advised for patients with high blood pressure to refrain from taking it. Sodium bicarbonate along with citrate and phosphate salts do not raise blood pressure to the extent that sodium chloride does.

Table salt is a refined salt containing about 97 to 99 percent sodium chloride. We know for a fact that processed (‘table’) salt does raise blood pressure in only those sensitive to it. But, obviously – hypertension is caused by much more than just the use of table salt.

    I very interested,because in Europe
    My grandma using long time.

    Using baking soda, how is it used?
    Is it consumed? If yes, how?

    How is baking soda used?

    I have successfully used baking soda for many years. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of warm water and drink. You should drink it before meals on an empty stomach. It still works if taken after meals but I find it to be more effective on an empty stomach. The reason for using warm water is so that the baking soda will dissolve more easily which makes the taste more pleasant. For severe stomach disorders and to cure acid reflux, drink 1 glass 3 times per day. Then when you have an improved, reduce to 1 glass a day and maintain that until your problems are gone.

      NACL is salt. If yoy have stomach disorder (reflux) you are relivied after drinking baking soda.. you feel better all right but there is salt remaining that may cause next problems to reflux

  5.' daniel says:

    I have know kidneys.. I’m on dialysis. .I have lung cancer… I can’t have to much salt..
    Eny advise please?

  6.' Helmut Harnischmacher says:

    Comment disappeared !

  7.' Nada says:

    my father had a chronic ulcer the only thing that relieved his pain and agony was taking one tablespoon of baking soda after meals he used it for years but it raised his high blood pressure
