Sacramento retiree, A.J.L. had a mole on her arm that changed color. There were flecks or lines of black in the mole. She didn’t know whether that meant cancer or not. So before she saw her doctor, she tried putting baking soda each day on the mole. Within a few weeks, the mole fell off and new, unscarred skin formed over the next few months where the mole had been. Did the baking soda eat her cancer? Did she even have cancer in the first place? Did the baking soda (bircarbonate of soda play any part in healing? “I don’t know,” she confesses. But after a year, the mole is gone and the skin is smooth and normal looking. The question is whether baking soda has any anti-fungal action on the outer skin and how safe or not safe is it when applied to the skin?
This is a question for doctors, scientists, and health care professionals. But can baking soda really influence cancer, if you think of cancer as a parasite? That depends upon research. And who, exactly is researching baking soda for doing anything other than cleaning your kitchen and bathroom, pots and pans, ridding your refrigerator of food smells, or being of use in cakes and cookies? Don’t confuse bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) with baking powder. They are two very different chemicals.
Why are people walking away from conventional medicine when it no longer works and trying everything researchable in the field of natural allopathic medicine? And how many people are getting into trouble for exercising their right to free speech versus offering educational information that isn’t supposed to take the place of a physician? But what happens when a physician diagnoses someone who goes through treatments and isn’t responding? Do people turn to food as a last resort, as a last hope? And are some of the foods discussed online as cures or treatments based on research? What’s safe when it comes to using food as medicine?
If you search the web for cancer treatments using foods, or ingredients that might go into foods, you’ll find more than 400 so-called cancer remedies, but the question is whether any actually work? And do people who have exhausted all convention medical means of getting rid of their problem turn to foods as a last choice? Of these so-called ‘food’ treatments, what’s the rate that any of these people have been helped in the long term? With more than 400 so-called cancer ‘remedies’ using food online these days, did any really work for a sizable number of people?
Let’s take one interesting so-called ‘treatment,’ online with the objective to alkalize your body with baking soda. It’s called the baking soda ‘cure.’ And in the past some of the doctors who used baking soda to ‘cure’ cancer got into real trouble with the law. But is the theory behind using baking soda to alkalize a part of your body have any real ‘cure’ rates? You can’t legally use the word ‘cure’ or say you’re ‘treating’ any disease or condition using any type of food without the approval of the FDA because foods cannot legally be ‘used’ as drugs. So what can these online articles say about baking soda? There’s one interesting article online to explore,”Bicarbonate of Soda Used to Cure Stage Four Prostate Cancer,” by Paul Fassa, published on Nov. 13, 2009.
You might want to take a look at other articles discussing the miracle-type ‘cures’ of baking soda to see whether they have worked for many or few people. The idea behind using baking soda is that when you take it, the result is supposed to be that your pH level is supposed to go into the alkaline range. Cancer is supposed to grow in mainly an acidic environment in your body. So the so-called ‘treatment’ is to alkalinize your body.
You might want to check out information about how Dr. Mark Sircus refers to oncology`s use of bicarbonate of soda in conjunction with chemotherapy to help protect vital organs from that poison. He asserts that all chemo patients would die without it. Dr. Sircus prefers using drips to get bicarbonate solutions into cancerous areas. Check out the articles, Sodium Bicarbonate, Article by Dr. Mark Sircus, and Articles Dr. Mark Sircus.
According to the IMVA publications website, “Dr. Mark Sircus, one of the most prolific writers in medicine, holds the honorary title of doctor of Oriental medicine and was one of the first nationally certified acupuncturists in the United States. He was trained in acupuncture and oriental medicine at the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Santa Fe, N.M., and in the School of Traditional Medicine of New England in Boston. He served at the Central Public Hospital of Pochutla, in Mexico.
“For many years he has been researching into the human condition and into the causes of disease. His primary focus in recent years has been the study of environmental toxicity and iatrogenic diseases. He has written extensively on the poisons in the environment, in our foods, medicines and dental practices. Dr. Sircus is the director of the International Medical Veritas Association (IMVA), which is advocating radical changes in orthodox medicine.
“His research and writings bring forth information that others wish to be hidden and he is without doubt “a flame of wonderful insight” and many are thankful for his wisdom and courage. Some people think him a genius in his own right and “his methods of attacking chronic disease beautiful and to the point.”
Is the FDA or the government going after anyone in any given situation who even talks about the so-called poor man’s cancer treatment using natural foods? What about people who use not just baking soda but also magnesium as cures for a variety of health issues? Do any of these food-cures really work? Has anyone been cured for many years?
You might want to check out the excellent book, Rich Man`s Poor Man`s Cancer Treatment. It’s also on Amazon.com. But what good does baking soda do if you eat it? It only will touch your digestive system as it passes in small amounts. Baking soda does have anti fungal action. But what’s in the baking soda that cures–the anti-fungal agent? If cancers are growing in Candida yeast overgrowth in the body, does the baking soda get rid of the yeast growths? Also, the yeast cell is very close to what a cancer cell looks like. Is Candida the cancer`s source? And does getting rid of fungus, also get rid of cancer?
Interestingly, a lot of doctors got in trouble in the past for using so-called cures that the government didn’t approve of, even if the cures were made from food. For example, how many doctors in the past lost their licenses or were ‘punished’ or ‘fined’ for telling patients to use certain types of enemas from foods of various kinds? When it comes to baking soda in small amounts, scientists have found it helped people with kidney disease.
How Baking Soda Helps Prevent Worsening of Kidney Disease
Also view the article, “Baking Soda Prevents Kidney Disease, Renal Failure and Kidney Dialysis.” The study indicates that baking soda prevents a worsening of kidney disease and renal failure in patients already with kidney disease. Baking soda has been shown to slow the decline of kidney function in CKD, according to a study published in the current issue of the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN).
In that study, scientists studied 134 patients with advanced CKD and low bicarbonate levels, a condition known as metabolic acidosis. One group of these patients was treated with a small daily dose of sodium bicarbonate in tablet form, in addition to their usual care.
As a result of the small daily baking soda dose, the rate of decline in kidney function was dramatically reduced in these patients. According to the study, “overall, the decline was about two-thirds slower than in patients not given sodium bicarbonate.” Interestingly, in patients taking sodium bicarbonate, the rate of decline in kidney function “was similar to the normal age-related decline.” Perhaps this study also shows how the human body reacts to the difference between one type of sodium, (sodium bicarbonate also known as baking soda) and sodium chloride found in common table salt.
The Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN) reported that a small daily dose of baking soda could prevent kidney damage and chronic kidney disease. See the abstract of the study, “Bicarbonate Supplementation Slows Progression of CKD and Improves Nutritional Status.”
For those without kidney conditions, a small daily dose of baking soda also can come by way of brushing your teeth with it. See: “Baking soda can clean your teeth, clear your complexion and act as a natural antacid.”
Can a very small amount of baking soda prevent kidney disease in some? For further information on the study with baking soda and kidney patients, see the article, “Baking Soda Prevents Kidney Disease, Renal Failure and Kidney Dialysis.”
