The Pen-N-Sword Team hopes the below information is some help to you or someone you know that has Cancer.
HOW DOES CANCER AFFECT CELLULAR PH?
Over seventy-five years ago Dr. Otto Warburg published a Nobel Prize winning paper describing the environment of the cancer cell. A normal cell undergoes an adverse change when it can no longer take up oxygen to convert glucose into energy by oxidation. In the absence of oxygen the cell reverts to a primitive nutritional program to sustain itself, converting glucose, by fermentation.
The lactic acid produced by fermentation lowers the cell pH (acid/alkaline balance) and destroys the ability of DNA and RNA to control cell division … the cancer cells begin to multiply unchecked. In the absence of oxygen, glucose undergoes fermentation to create lactic acid.
This causes the cell pH to drop from between 7.3 to 7.2 down to 7 and later to 6.5; in more advanced stages of cancer and in metastases the pH drops to 6.0 and even 5.7.
With the low pH, cancer cells thrive.
However, because the cancer cells are burning glucose (and creating lactic acid), enormous amounts of energy are pulled from non-cancerous cells. In the “cachexia cycle,” the liver converts the lactic acid back to glucose, which also consumes enormous amounts of energy.
Thus, the cancer cells convert glucose to lactic acid, the lactic acid travels to the liver; the liver converts the lactic acid back to glucose, which then travels back to the cancer cell. This cycle consumes an enormous amount of energy.
HIGH Ph THERAPY
In order for cancer cells to survive and reproduce they have to maintain a high acidic pH – they do this by producing lactic acid as a byproduct of their anaerobic respiration. Cesium chloride is a powerful natural mineral that has the ability to penetrate the cells and change their acidic pH to an alkaline pH.
This process can destroy the enzyme system of a cancer cell and halt it’s ability to reproduce. As evidenced by the numerous studies cited below, this powerful, high pH therapy has had astounding success in certain cancers.
The pioneer of the Cesium therapy was the highly esteemed American physicist, Dr. Aubrey Keith Brewer (1893 – 1986). He was the chief of the National Bureau of Standards and Mass Spectrometer and Isotope Section and his main interest was in the behavior of cell membranes. He noted during his research that there were areas of the earth where the incidences of cancer were very low. In analyzing the foods from these regions, they were found to be extremely high in cesium and rubidium.
The Hopi Indians have water that contains rubidium and potassium while the Hunzas of Northern Pakistan have water high in cesium and potassium. Through his research, he was able to prove that cesium chloride can penetrate cancer cells when other nutrients cannot.
Following his research, many studies on humans have been carried out by H. Nieper in Hanover, Germany, and by H. Sartori in Washington, DC, as well as by a number of other physicians. On the whole, the results have been very good.
HOW IS CESIUM CHLORIDE ADMINISTERED?
Utopia Wellness administers Cesium Chloride in an intravenous solution that is infused into a vein in the arm or through a medical port. The solution also contains the “super solvent” with the ability to penetrate every single cell of the body, so whatever its other effects may be, they will be spread systemically through the entire body.
IS CESIUM CHLORIDE THERAPY SAFE?
Cesium Chloride is safe when administered under the supervision of an experienced medical team. While extremely rare, there can be side effects of Cesium Chloride including
- swelling and pain
- muscle cramps
- feet and your finger tips feeling like needles and pins
- a tingly prickly feeling in your hands or on your face
- nausea and vomiting.
THE GOAL OF THE ALKALINE DIET
There is general agreement amongs natural healers and medical professionals alike, that changing a cancer patient’s diet is extremely helpful when someone is confronted with a cancer diagnosis. The goal of an alkaline diet for cancer is to achieve an optimal balance between acid-forming and alkaline-forming foods.
The alkaline diet for cancer greatly reduces the strain on the body’s acid-detoxification systems.
It is primarily plant-based and avoids sugar, dairy, wheat and other high-gluten grains as well as an excess consumption of fruits, while emphasizing fresh vegetables and vegetable juices along with cruciferous vegetables and greens.
The purpose is to change the body’s intracellular pH to come close to the ideal blood pH of 7.3/7.41 – a key metabolic accomplishment on the path to longevity whether you have cancer or not! An alkaline diet based on vegetables and fruits creates a less-than-optimal environment for cancer proliferation, while at the same time strengthens the immune function and supports healthy cells in the body through improved nutrition.
HOW CAN I LEARN WHAT FOODS ARE ACIDIC / ALKALINE?
This is where a lot of people get confused. There are many food items that are acidic in their natural state (ie. Lemons, limes). However, after the process of digestion they produce what is termed as an “alkaline ash” once digested and metabolized by the body. So while you may think a lemon or lime is acidic in the body, it is actually quite good at alkalinizing the body.
Test Your Body’s Acidity or Alkalinity with pH Strips
It is recommended that you test your pH levels to determine if your body’s pH needs immediate attention. By using pH test strips (Litmus Paper), you can determine your pH factor quickly and easily in the privacy of your own home. The best time to test your pH is about one hour before a meal and two hours after a meal. The optimal pH is 7.0 or higher.
You can get the Ph Strip at any good health store.
Acidosis means Acidification, is now considered a hallmark of cancer. Many research studies have been conducted to investigate the relationship between pH levels and cancer growth. The findings are complicated.
There’s no scientific evidence to suggest that baking soda can prevent cancer. It’s important to remember that cancer grows quite well in healthy tissue with normal pH levels. Additionally, naturally acidic environments, like the stomach, don’t encourage cancer growth.
Once cancer cells begin to grow, they produce an acidic environment that encourages malignant growth. The goal of many researchers is to decrease the acidity of that environment so that the cancer cells aren’t able to thrive.
A 2009 study published in Cancer Research found that injecting bicarbonate into mice reduced tumor pH levels and slowed the progression of metastatic breast cancer.
The acidic microenvironment of tumors is likely the leading cause of chemotherapeutic failure in cancer treatment. Cancer cells are difficult to target because the area around them is acidic, but inside they’re alkaline. Many cancer drugs have trouble passing through these layers.
Several studies have evaluated the use of antacid drugs in combination with chemotherapy. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are a class of drugs widely prescribed for the treatment of acid reflux and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Millions of people take them. They have few side effects.
A 2015 study published in the Journal of Experimental and Clinical Cancer Research found that high doses of the PPI esomeprazole significantly enhanced the antitumor effect of chemotherapy in women with metastatic breast cancer.
A 2017 study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology evaluated the effects of combining the PPI omeprazole with chemoradiotherapy (CRT) treatments in people with rectal cancer. The omeprazole helped relieve common side effects of CRT, improved the efficacy of the treatments, and reduced the recurrence of rectal cancer.
Although these studies had small sample sizes, they’re encouraging. Similar large-scale clinical trials are already underway.
Baking Soda and Cancer Healing
No one cause is associated with cancer development, nor is there one cure for this complex disease. Cancer is a disease that initiates damaging activity within tissue and cells triggering genetic mutations and abnormalities. This cascade of effects causes adverse changes to the body’s metabolic processes. These unhealthy metabolic functions can be reversed using natural health strategies − including the use of baking soda to heal and stabilize natural healing dynamics.
Many buffering systems equip the human body with the ability to optimize internal functions for as long a period as possible. One of these known systems is referred to as pH. For example, a healthy body should have a blood pH level of 7.365 which is slightly alkaline. Regulating pH balance is key to total health and wellness and is primarily reliant on healthy lifestyle habits, including a proper diet.
Baking Soda Helps Regulate pH Levels
Given its alkalizing (or basic) pH of approximately 9.0, baking soda counteracts the acidity that accumulates in the body. Baking soda is useful to regulate by buffering the pH of cells, tissues, and voltage homeostasis within cells. It is also useful to increase oxygenation and carbon dioxide. Baking soda can also be used to aid the body in the detoxification process and support the body in healing from radiation exposure and oxidative damage.
Natural health care practitioners utilize sodium bicarbonate to defend against numerous health ailments. Some of these include the common cold, kidney disease, diabetes, the flu, and some even use baking soda to treat cancer. When used as a bath soak, the body can absorb the health benefits of baking soda through the skin. It can also be used as a nebulizer to treat lung conditions.
Identifying Cancer with Baking Soda
Recent research reveals that baking soda is a useful agent in identifying cancer cell growth. Acids become built up in cancerous areas of the body and the bicarbonate is converted into carbon dioxide. These changes in bicarbonate can be viewed on an MRI scan with high sensitivity as determined by a United Kingdom cancer research group.
Cancer cells flourish in an acidic environment and these regions are significantly lower in pH than other surrounding tissue. The researchers found that MRI sensitivity increased by more than 20,000 times when experimenting with mice diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. When bicarbonate was localized into the cancerous tissue, evidence was clear that the tumors with the highest acidity had a significantly higher conversion rate of bicarbonate into carbon dioxide.
Lead scientist of this pioneering study was Professor Kevin Brindle with the UK’s Cambridge Research Institute at the University of Cambridge. Professor Brindle stated, “This technique could be used as a highly-sensitive early warning system for the signs of cancer. By exploiting the body’s natural pH balancing system, we have found a potentially safe way of measuring pH to see what’s going on inside patients. MRIs can pick up on the abnormal pH levels found in cancer and it is possible that this could be used to pinpoint where the disease is present and when it is responding to treatment.”
Baking Soda Suppresses Cancer Growth Rate
Energy is produced by cancer cells through a process called anaerobic glycolysis which relies on glucose as the primary fuel source. Acidic metabolites such as lactic acid are byproducts of this metabolic pathway. As a result of this biochemical event, studies have found that the extracellular pH in cancerous regions is generally lower than normal tissue.
A highly acidic environment stimulates invasive tumor growth in both primary and metastatic cancer types. Consumption of sodium bicarbonate has been shown to increase the pH of tumors and slow the formation of spontaneous metastases in metastatic breast cancer mouse models. Baking soda was also found to decrease the rate of lymph node involvement and reduce the occurrence that the cancer would spread to the liver.
Researchers in this field of study reasonably assume that increasing systemic levels of pH using buffers such as sodium bicarbonate will lower peritumoral and intratumoral acidosis. Further, the reduction of tumor acid levels exhibited in mouse models has been found to reduce tumor growth and metastasis without adversely altering blood or unaffected tissue pH concentrations.
The use of baking soda is also a likely route to enhancing the effects of conventional chemotherapy treatment. Tumor acidosis promotes chemoresistance with specific chemotherapy drugs such as paclitaxel and doxorubicin. Utilizing baking soda to improve pH levels is a potential benefit for those seeking standard cancer treatment.
Research clearly indicates that baking soda along with the use of a variety of other natural healing strategies can be used to naturally defend against cancer as well as strengthen immune coordination. However, cancer is a highly complex disease − no one should consider a solo therapy to be effective at curing cancer as no treatment can accomplish such a task.
Baking soda destroys cancer by altering the pH levels of tumors to alkaline, which essentially kills them. Cancer is usually treated with chemotherapy which has numerous negative side-effects on our health, but baking soda offers an alternative way of killing the tumors without harming our body.
THE WHITAKER PROTOCOL
The Whitaker protocol was created by Dr. J. Whitaker and involves drinking a mixture of baking soda and water along with a natural sweetener such as molasses or honey.
How To Mix It
- 12 gr. of baking soda
- 2 cups of water
- add a bit of honey
Then drink the mixture 3 times a day to destroy a tumor.
According to scientists:
- Baking soda can slow down the development of tumors and the process of metastasis.
- No matter the type of tumor and cancer, baking soda will flood the cancer cells with alkalinity and kill them slowly, until the tumor shrinks and is no longer present in the body.
If you want to reduce the acidity of a tumor, talk to your doctor about a PPI or the “do-it-yourself” method, baking soda. Whichever one you choose, speak to your doctor first. The study that treated mice with baking soda used the equivalent of 12.5 grams per day, a rough equivalent based on a theoretical 150-pound human. That translates to about 1 tablespoon per day.
Try mixing a tablespoon of baking soda into a tall glass of water. If the taste is too much, do a 1/2 tablespoon twice a day. You can also add some lemon or honey to improve the taste
How Do You Use Baking Soda in Your Body?
If the body is in an acidic state baking soda is beneficial to increasing pH concentrations. Contrary to popular opinion, baking soda (unlike baking powder), does not contain aluminum. Purchasing “aluminum-free” baking soda is unnecessary, but purchasing “aluminum-free” baking powder for baking needs should be highly considered.
However, commercial baking soda products including the Arm & Hammer brand utilize a chemical process that converts trona ore into soda ash. Soda ash reacts with carbon dioxide to produce baking soda. Although not necessarily a hazard, this product does result from a chemical process. I recommend purchasing preferred brands such as Bob’s Red Mill, Frontier, and other natural brands. These companies source their sodium bicarbonate directly from the ground in its natural environment.
Safety of Baking Soda Treatment for Cancer
Each tumor is distinguished by its own unique traits and all may not be extremely acidic. Regardless of the tumors acidity, balancing and creating a slightly alkaline internal body environment is beneficial to the patient’s internal systems. Ideally, pH strip testing should result between 7.0 and 8.0. If a reading higher than 8.0 results, discontinue baking soda use immediately until pH decreases.
Testing and monitoring both urine and saliva pH should be used in conjunction with sodium bicarbonate treatments. You can do this with a pH test or an electronic tester. Test every morning and chart the results. Test both urinary and salivary pH when you get out of a bath with baking soda. Again, if the pH climbs above 8.0, stop use of baking soda treatments until the pH lowers.
Unmonitored use of baking soda therapy can have health hazards. Some of these consequences include reduced stomach pH concentration, kidney complications, alkalosis, etc. To avoid these dangers be responsible with use and take the time to chart your pH levels throughout your day. Avoid consuming baking soda within 30 minutes of a meal to limit digestive problems.
The Baking Soda Protocol
Only consume this drink when you have tested your pH throughout the day and your results are acidic. As a reminder, do not drink this beverage 30 minutes before or after a meal to avoid lowering stomach acid secretions and inhibiting proper digestion. This beverage will aid in neutralizing pH, buffer stomach acid, and lower acidosis. Drink the following mixture throughout the day except before and after meals until your pH levels are stabilized between 7.0 and 8.0.
- Tall glass
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 2 tbs fresh lemon juice
- 8 oz. purified water
- Mix baking soda with fresh lemon juice or organic apple cider vinegar. The combination will result in a foam or fizz. This is normal.
- Once all bubbling has stopped, add water to the mixture and drink all at once.
