Is it possible that a simple kitchen ingredient like baking soda can help cure cancer? Well, yes; latest studies and research have revealed that baking soda on its own, or even when used in combination with lemon, can prove to be extremely helpful in fighting the cancerous cells.
So, how far is this true? Read on to find out more about baking soda and cancer!
Need For An Alternative Treatment
Cancer rates are increasing at an alarming speed. Despite intensive research and studies, the conventional medicine is yet to find a definite solution for curing different types of cancer that affect humans. That is why many scientists have directed their efforts towards alternative treatments, which are now becoming more prominent.
Cancer is an uncontrolled division of the abnormal cells within the human body, and until now, no evidence has guaranteed that it can be completely cured by using baking soda or salt water or lemon. However, one of the posts recently published in The American Cancer Society reflects on a very different aspect of cancer development, which has not yet been researched. It says that these alternative treatments are based on a theory that cancer is a form of yeast infection and sodium bicarbonate is effective against killing yeast (1).
The claim does not have any clinical evidence in support, and contradicts the widely accepted basic microbiology and oncology facts. However, the recent developments and real-life experiences of some patients have made even the health experts ponder over the possibility of baking soda being effective against cancer.
Varied Effects Of The Treatment
One such research is being directed towards the effect of baking soda, a.k.a. sodium bicarbonate, on patients suffering from cancer. Dr. Marty Pagel, from the University of Arizona Cancer Center, is conducting the research to find out the effects of baking soda on breast cancer patients. One thing that is common with all the treatments is that the effect varies depending upon the type of cancer. Moreover, the condition of the body receiving the treatment also decides the chances of complete recovery. To top it all, the lifestyle of the patient will also decide the outcome.
Nonetheless, the studies that are being carried out in different countries related to the effect of sodium bicarbonate on the cancer tumors have revealed interesting results. Although the research is still in its initial stages, the results so far have shown that baking soda can contribute hugely in restricting tumor metastasis.
Using Lemon And Baking Soda For Cancer Treatment
According to Dr. Robert J. Gillies and his team, baking soda can effectively neutralize cancer in mice by alkalinizing the surrounding area and making the cancerous cells starve without oxygen. During their research, these scientists found out that regular intake of baking soda enhances the pH of the tumor and also resists the further growth of breast cancer in mice.
Lemon is known to contain anti-carcinogenic properties. Limonoides, present in lemon, are phytochemicals that are also found in almost all citrus fruits. The strong anti-microbial effect of lemon effectively limits the growth of cancerous cells, which attach to the body like fungus. When both lemon and baking soda were used together to fight the fungus of different types of cancerous cells, they inhibited the cancerous growth.
Baking Soda And Lemon Combination – Better Than Chemotherapy
Lemon is an effective detoxifier, is rich in vitamin C, and neutralizes the body protecting it from the cell-damaging free radicals. Just like baking soda, lemon too effectively balances the pH of the body, and hence, when used together, they introduce a high level of alkalinity to the system. This method effectively destroys the damaging cancerous cells without doing any harm to the healthy cells, unlike chemotherapy, in which even the healthy cells are destroyed making the body weak.

Method Of Treatment
Take 250 ml water and mix half a teaspoon of baking soda and half lemon juice in it. Drink this mixture every day before going to bed, or even in between the meals. When taken along with the meal, it will reduce the acidic level of the stomach. The same combination can also be carried out through intravenous therapy, but under the guidance of a health professional.
The High pH Therapy
Apart from lemon, there are other ingredients, which, when used in combination with baking soda, have been found to be extremely beneficial. Balancing the alkaline level is the basic concept behind the use of baking soda for cancer treatment. When a patient of IV prostate cancer, Vernon Johnston, substituted cytotoxicity with molasses and baking soda, he effectively could raise his body’s pH levels to alkalinity (2). To the surprise of the oncologists, he recovered completely from cancer within 12 days. The study, published in the Natural Society’s alternative medicine publication, reveals how Johnston made an alkaline concoction using molasses and sodium bicarbonate. In both the above combinations, the key is to increase the alkalinity of the body.
Why Is Baking Soda Effective Against Cancer?
It is a known fact that cancer cells become dormant if the alkaline level of the system is between pH 7.0 to 7.5. Therefore, when the alkalinity of the body reaches pH 8.0 and 8.5, the cancer cells die. By introducing baking soda along with other alkaline ingredients, you can make your body’s system reach a level at which the cancer cells cannot survive.
Conventional cancer therapies have innumerable side effects. They increase the toxic level in the body and the chemotherapy badly affects the immune system, making the system vulnerable to external attacks. However, when treated using natural ingredients such as baking soda, lemon or molasses, the chances of side effects are reduced considerably.
The Cancer Alternative Foundation has said that when the alternative therapy or the pH therapy is carried out under professional guidance, it has an 80% chance of becoming successful.
Experiments and in-depth studies on the use of sodium bicarbonate in treating cancer are required to find out better ways in which baking soda can be used to help heal cancer.
