A Meditation for the Methane Leak in L.A.

29 12 2015

by Mae McCaw

A greenhouse gas that’s 25x more efficient at trapping heat in the atmosphere than CO2 makes methane one of the largest contributors to global warming. Much of the methane comes from the bottom of the ocean or in methane hydrates (trapped in ice released when icebergs melt). If a million tons of methane gas – a new distribution of energy – is released into the atmosphere, the consequences are globally catastrophic (chain reaction known as a runaway greenhouse effect that’s self propagating). The warmer and warmer and warmer it gets, the more it generates SUPER storms or monster weather with higher magnitude, higher rating, stronger winds, producing stronger storm surges, producing heavier rains, and strange weather patterns (massive hail storms, flooding, etc.). Though, I wonder if this could also be a blessing in disguise for the CA drought?

Just like the nano particles, impossible storms, volatile tectonic plates, ELENIN, impending super volcanic eruptions, we seriously do have the collective power (in numbers) with our hearts and minds to fix these things by simply envisioning the opposite of its destructive effects. Just as we can reprogram the nano particles, we can recreate a different reaction and timeline for these events. We don’t have to buy into the depression, the devastation, etc. Remember, in the end, it’s just a hologram. Our emotional reaction powers the physical manifestation of what follows. Let’s keep our emotions in check and power the thoughts with Love that rebuild a New Earth, a beautiful one for all her species.

FOR MEDITATORS WORLDWIDE:

coniferous-trees-meditation

It’s time we address the massive environmental disaster–150 million pounds+ of methane (and growing daily) leaked into the atmosphere from Los Angeles, CA. Meditation is one of our most effective super powers so in your next meditation session today (more power in numbers), envision a few things with your minds, powered by your hearts–

FIRST…connect your crown chakra with Source. Bring in the White Light from Source down to your crown chakra through all your chakras cleansing and activating them through your root chakra down to the core of Mother Earth. FEEL this powerful connection with your HEART out of PURE LOVE for the Earth and all her species:

1. Methane is a natural gas from the ground so envision the leak source effectively sealed.
2. Envision the methane that’s already leaked into the atmosphere as benign to humans, animals and the environment.
3. For those bodies that have already been affected however, envision the probiotic microbes and anti-oxidants in the body defeating/eliminating all rogue and/or carcinogenic cells completely.
4. Envision the greenhouse gas effect of methane in the atmosphere being absorbed by living Christmas trees. (Evergreen spruce, pines, and firs are proven the most effective at cleaning methane in the air.) Activate the coniferous forest located right up in Idyllwild, CA. Activate all the evergreen trees in Los Angeles and surrounding cities and regions to work double/triple time cleaning up the methane.
5. Activate ALL coniferous forests (evergreens) THROUGHOUT the world to assist in this miraculous job of absorbing the methane and all greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, leaving the planet with only fresh, clean air.
6. As you meditate be sure you also replenish the evergreen trees/ coniferous forests with Source energy.
7. Repeat and/or add anything else to this meditation.
8. Bless the Earth.
9. Give thanks to Source.
10. Close your practice (with several deep breaths in a series of OMs).
Thank you. Feel free to Share. It’s more effective in numbers.

Powerful Crystalline Healing Visualization

16 11 2014

If you are ready to heal from whatever ailments or disturbances that keep you in a state of suffering, pain, dis-ease, etc. then do this beautiful visualization every night just before you go to bed without the interruption of the conscious mind which shuts down in your sleep. Be sure that your mind and body are quiet and comfortable. Do not do under duress, stress or anxiety. The body cannot heal under such conditions. This visual meditation is taken from the late Dolores Cannon’s updated book “Between Death and Life: Conversations with a Spirit”.

“The river of crystalline healing energy allows for the oxygen to move to the cells, bringing life back into the lungs. This offering of the river of life allows you to work with your body to tap into this river, and to expand and to use freely, you must choose the river. You must choose the light energy. You must offer through your organs and move it to the being of energy that calls you human. You must see the flow as all things are living. You must see it as a living elixir. You must see the motion as it comes from the most high. It comes from the Source and through. You must FEEL the lightness, the healing energy that carries a gift with it. That is the ONLY way the body will open and accept.” (This excerpt was slightly edited to address the reader directly.)

HEALING VISUALIZATION

Note that as the golden white crystalline light of Source / Creator energy flows through your chakras, visualize this light PURIFYING, CLEANSING, REACTIVATING, BALANCING and ANCHORING EACH crystalline chakra energy center of your body.  Acknowledge, communicate, connect and resonate with each energy center as a CONSCIOUS crystalline being. For visual aid, see the image on the next page.

“The flow begins in celestial realms of watching as the crystalline river comes through the beginning of time and space and flows down through the crown chakra [7] opening through the third eye [4] down through the face [into the throat chakra (5), then to the heart chakra (4) and] down through into the third chakra [solar plexus (3)]… through the torso into the hips [sacral chakra (2) and through the root chakra (1)] and down as the river flows through each side of each leg… down into the core, into the heart of the mother, into the divine flow of opening.”

New Scientific Breakthrough Proves Why Acupuncture Works

27 06 2013

Source:  Examiner.com

New groundbreaking research shows that the insertion of an acupuncture needle into the skin disrupts the branching point of nerves called C fibres. These C fibres transmit low-grade sensory information over very long distances by using Merkel cells as intermediaries. Dr. Morry Silberstein of the Curtin University of Technology will publish his research in the Journal of Theoretical Biology later this year.

We have never really had a scientific explanation for how acupuncture actually works,” he said. In the absence of a scientific rationale, acupuncture has not been widely used in the mainstream medical community. If we can explain the process scientifically, we can open it to full scientific scrutiny and develop ways to use it as a part of medical treatments.”

Dr. Silberstein mentions that they have known, for some time, that the acupuncture points show lower electrical resistance than other nearby areas of the skin. His research specifically pinpoints that the C fibres actually branch exactly at acupuncture points. Scientists don’t know exactly what role C fibres play in the nervous system, but Dr. Silverstein theorizes that the bundle of nerves exists to maintain arousal or wakefulness. The insertion of the acupuncture needle disrupts this circuit and numbs our sensitivity to pain.”

Acupuncture for pain relief is actually being taught to American Air Force physicians deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan (2009) by Dr. Richard Niemtzow MD, PhD, MPH and editor of Medical Acupuncture. His technique called “Battlefield Acupuncture” relieves severe pain for several days and is a variation of acupuncture, which inserts very tiny semi-permanent needles at specific acupoints on the skin of the ear that blocks pain signals from reaching the brain.

“This is one of the fastest pain attenuators in existence,” said Dr. Niemtzow, who is the Consultant for complementary and alternative medicine for the Surgeon General of the Air Force, and is affiliated with Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda. “The pain can be gone in five minutes.”

It has taken quite a long time for Western medicine to embrace acupuncture even though it was introduced in the early 1970’s after contacts with China improved.

Professor Tsuei mentions: “In 1972 the respected New York Times columnist James Restonunderwent an emergency appendectomy while in China. He later wrote about acupuncture treatment for post-operative pain that was very successful. This report attracted attention and many American physicians and researchers went to China to observe and learn acupuncture techniques.”

Since then, only a few controlled studies were done in the West. Yale researchers proved its effectiveness for cocaine addiction in 2000 and published their findings in the August 14 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine.

A North Korean researcher, Kim Bonghan, published papers in the early 1960’s and his research was confirmed by the Japanese researchers Fujiwara and Yu in 1967. Unfortunately his research took almost 40 years to be confirmed through studies done on rats, rabbit and pigs with Stereo-microscope photographs and electron microsopy.

The amazing photo shows the stereomicroscopic image of acupuncture meridians:

“Assemblies of tubular structures 30 to 100 micro-meters wide (red blood cells are 6-8 micro-meters in diameter). Apparently these structures have remained undiscovered for so long because they are almost transparent and so thin that they are barely visible with low-magnification surgical microscopes. They are also easily confused with fibrin, which coagulates and obscures these structures when there is bleeding in dissected tissues. Now that they have been rediscovered, researchers are investigating their composition and function. The tubular structures that make up Bonghan channels contain a flowing liquid that includes abundant hyaluronic acid, a substance that cushions and lubricates the joints, eyes, skin and even heart valves. Also visible in the photographs are small granules of DNA or microcells about 1-2 micro-meters in diameter that contain chromosomal material highly reactive to stem-cell antibody stains. When these cells were isolated and then induced to differentiate, they grew into cells of all three germ layers. These may be our body’s natural source of pluripotent adult stem cells, with the potential to develop into any cell in the body”

Russian researchers in 1991 at The Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine in Novosibirsk, USSR, in a research project lasting several years, discovered how the human body conducts light. They found that the light conducting ability of the human body exists only along the meridians, and can enter and exit only along the acupuncture points. Dr. Kaznachejew, a professor of physics said:

“This seems to prove that we have a light transferal system in our body somewhat like optical fiber. It appears that the light can even travel when the light canal is bent, or totally twisted. The light appears to be reflected from the inner surface, appearing to go in some sort of zigzag track. You can explain this through traditional electromagnetic light theory as it is used in optical fiber communications.”

This finding has been confirmed by a 1992 study in the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicineand a 2005 study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine where moxibustion and infrared thermography were used to trace meridian pathways.

There might be a “light body” after all.

NASA Confirms Super Human Abilities Gained [from Sun Gazing] + EAT THE SUN (Film) + The Truth About Sunlight, Cancer and Vitamin D + 10 Oils With Natural SPF + Ditch the Sunscreen

6 06 2013

Added by Stasia Bliss on May 29, 2013.
The Guardian Express

Ever wanted to be in more than one place at a time? That’s right, I’m talking about the super-human abilities that can be gained by those who follow the protocol for what’s known as sun-gazing, a valid practice recently confirmed by NASA. Many proponents of this ancient technique, used by many cultures such as Mayan, Egyptian, Aztec, Tibetian and Indian yoga, report not only healing benefits to common illnesses, but obtaining super-human abilities such as advanced telepathy and going completely without the need for food.

What is Sun Gazing?

Sun gazing (also known as sun-eating) is a strict practice of gradually introducing sunlight into your eyes at the lowest ultraviolet-index times of day – sunrise and sunset. Those who teach the practice say there are several rules to the practice. First, it must be done within the hour after sunrise or before sunset to avoid damaging the eyes. Second, you must be barefoot, in contact with the actual earth – sand, dirt or mud; and finally, you must begin with only 10 seconds the first day, increasing by 10 second intervals each day you practice. Following these rules make the practice safe, says sources.

Nikolai Dolgoruky of the Ukraine calls himself a ‘sun-eater’. He has been practicing sun gazing for the past 12 years and has largely subsisted off solar energy since he began. Others have reported losing the need for food after only 9 months of sun gazing (by which time the practitioner has worked up to a maximum of 44 minutes). After 9 months of practice, you need only walk barefoot on the earth for 45 minutes per day, 6 days in a row to further the process of what has been initiated by sun gazing.

Sun-gazing is a practice also called the HRM phenomenom, coined as such after Hira Ratan Manek, the man who submitted himself to NASA for scientific testing to confirm that he does indeed possess the almost ‘super-human’ ability of not eating, gained through his dedication to this interesting marvel. Funded by NASA, a team of medical doctors at the University of Pennsylvania observed Hira 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 100 days. NASA confirmed that he was indeed able to survive largely on light with occasionally a small amount of buttermilk or water during this time.

What happens to the body during Sun Gazing?

During your first 3 months of practice, the suns energy is moving through the eyes and charging the hypothalamus tract, says those who have studied this technique and used it. The hypothalamus tract is the pathway to the rear of the retina which leads to the brain. The brain then, over time, becomes activated by the energy supply being received by the sun. You will first experience a relief of mental tension and worry, since most worry is fueled by the energy received by the foods we eat. Since food gets it’s energy from the sun, it is said to be readily available to sun-eaters without the trouble of digestion. Though hunger is said to eventually cease, it is fine to continue eating regularly during initial stages, until appetite disappears naturally.

Another benefit early on is said to be an increase in confidence and an ability to easily solve your problems, as you are without tension. Everyone has at least a bit of psychosis, but during the first few months of sun gazing practice, it is reported that these attitudes go away and a positive nature gracefully replaces the old persona full of fears. By the end of 3 months, the gazing time will have increased to 15 minutes per day.

Reports on sun gazing say that the bad qualities normally associated with any person will gradually disappear and good qualities will remain, explaining that ‘bad qualities’ only develop in the absence of sunlight. Bad qualities like anger, fear, jealousy, lust – are said to disappear – and be replaced by a certain confidence and ‘spiritual knowing’ that senses more purely the heart of an issue.

At 3-6 months of gazing, the studies show that physical diseases start to disappear. They say that by the time one is gazing 30 minutes per day (building up 10 seconds per day) all the colors of the sun will have reached the brain. Color therapists attribute their healing of certain diseases to flooding the body and brain with the particular color that is lacking – depending on the ailment. For example, in liver disease, the color green is deficient. The kidneys need red, and the heart, yellow. All of the organs and all of the systems are said to respond to different colors of the rainbow, which is why it is also recommended to eat a diet rich in a variety of colors. It is recommended during the 3-4 month period that you use autosuggestion to see your body already healed of any perceived weakness or disease. This action will facilitate the process of returning to wholeness.

As you continue the process, it is reported that after 6 months, the energy stored from the technique is no longer being used for repairing the body or the mind and can move now into supporting you in gaining more super-human abilities.

What’s Beyond Healing?

By seven and a half months of gazing, now at 35 minutes, need and desire for food is dwindling. According to sun gazing experts, food is not actually needed to maintain the body, only energy – and ‘sun-eating’ provides that energy. By 9 months, all taste for food, including aroma, all hunger pains and cravings disappear. Those who make it this far say that they report a noticeable ’change’ in the way their brain feels – like it’s “charged up.” After 9 months of sun-gazing – reaching a maximum of 44 minutes – it is advised that you give up sun-gazing and redirect your attention now to the Earth.

For 6 days straight, one is to walk barefoot on the earth, 45 minutes per day. During this barefoot walking, the pineal gland is said to become activated. Professional sun gazers and those researching the science say that each toe is connected to a specific gland, and by walking barefoot on the Earth, you activate these glands. The big toe is thought to be aligned with the pineal gland, the second toe with the pituitary, then the hypothalamus, thalamus and finally the pinky toe correlates to the amygdala. Walking barefoot, with the sun now falling on the top of your head, practitioners claim to create a sort of magnetic field in and around your body that recharges you and your brain.

Apparently this walking barefoot part is the most important aspect of the practice. As you continue walking on the Earth, this is when the magic really begins. The pineal gland is activated more and more by this walking procedure. Intellect is said to increase, along with memory. The pineal gland has navigational and psychic capabilities, meaning telepathy, the possibility of flight… now we are getting somewhere! Have you ever thought you would like to have your body in more than one place at a time? Well, sun-gazing is said to be the magical key to such abilities.

If you can barefoot walk 45 minutes every day for a year – you are golden. At that point, only a maintenance of 3-4 days a week is necessary to maintain the capabilities you have acquired.

Are there any dangers?

Doctors and eye care professionals caution against looking directly at the sun, saying that it will damage the retina. However, if done correctly, sun-gazing at the correct times of day, studies show there is no risk of damaging the eyes. Those who have been sun gazing for many years have had their eyes checked to show no damage, though it is advised that you have your eyes checked in the first few weeks of your practice, so you can know for yourself.

To sum it all up…

Remember, it’s 10 seconds the first day, at sunrise or sunset, adding 10 seconds per day each day there after. After 90 days of accumulative gazing equaling 44 minutes, you cease the gazing and start the barefoot walking 45 minutes per day for 6 days. At this point, I could imagine, hey – if you made it this far, what’s a year of barefoot walking an hour per day to keep it all? You will have to try it out and see for yourself.

If you are really interested in gaining super-human abilities, confirmed by reputable organizations like NASA, as the ones mentioned above, sun gazing sounds like a fairly straightforward path to enlightenment.

10 Oils With Natural SPF

Over 56% of beach and sport sunscreens contain the chemical oxybenzone (stated by the Environmental Working Group). Oxybenzone functions to absorb ultraviolet light, however it can also be absorbed through the skin. This chemical has been linked to hormone disruption and cell damage that may lead to skin cancer. Other chemicals in conventional sunscreen products range from cancer-causing fragrance chemicals, parabens, alcohols, toxic chemical solvents and petroleum oils. Putting sunscreen on your body is like spreading a chemical concoction over your largest organ – the skin.

Ditch the Sunscreen? The Kiwi Guide to Intelligent Sun Exposure

img

With summer upon us and the sun shining, the topic of Vitamin D, sun exposure, sun tanning, and sunscreen use keep popping up.

Typically by this point of the year we begin to see “news” articles popping up, telling us of the devil of the sun, to avoid the sun if possible and the need to cover ourselves in sunscreen at all times.

Yet Vitamin D – specifically, LOW levels of Vitamin D – have been directly linked now with over 100 diseases, including no less than 16 cancers.

And what is the number one source for humans for Vitamin D? Made in our bodies via sun exposure to UVB radiation.

Due to a mix of modern lifestyles, living latitudes, and the “conventional advice”, I feel very strongly that most people are getting insufficient exposure to sunlight, the ultimate source of Vitamin D in our lives, for both health and happiness.

You have heard me say this often, go get some sun, yet I just had these two on the Athletic Greens Facebook page after I made a comment on getting outside for some Vitamin D:

Facebook reader: Some of us burn in the sun (versus tan), which can lead to skin cancer.

Facebook reader: … Put some lotion on and get some sun. No one burns in 15 minutes

Confusion on this topic abounds. They are both right, and yet they are both wrong.

So what is it….. Ditch the sunscreen? Lather up? In the sun? Out? What to dooooo?

Here is the Kiwi two cents on this one.

Let’s look at the three big things people are trying to avoid when they think of sunshine time and sunscreen, or not.

1. Sunburn; pain and a nasty red look

2. Wrinkles and aging

3. Skin Cancer

Let’s cover off skin cancer first; by far the biggest issue of the three.

There are three main types of skin cancer

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC)

Cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM)

SCC and BCC are both pretty well correlated to sunshine exposure, particularly UVB exposure. Almost always occurring in areas with the largest amount of sun exposure (face, back of hands, neck, ears) they account for nearly 90% of total “skin cancer” – yet are responsible for about 10% of cancer deaths.

This is partly because they tend to not be particularly aggressive cancers – are indeed frequently benign – but also because they can typically be detected early and easily removed via a simple out-patient procedure. Not fun, but not as bad as the one below, melanoma. It should be noted that sunscreen has indeed been found to correlate with decreased SCC, with BCC shows very mixed results.

The nasty malignant melanoma (CCM) on the other hand causes 90% of the deaths related to skin cancer. This cancer has the ability to metastasize (spread) and is frequently undetected until late. That is a tragic combination. It should be noted here that melanoma most commonly occurs on areas of the body that do not typically receive regular sun exposure.

When most people are tailing about avoiding “skin cancer”, they are referring to malignant melanoma.

Because most of us know someone who has had melanoma, and thus this is potentially pretty charged, I decided to include all reference links below.

My wonderful Aunty Lynn died of malignant melanoma in 2004. Thinking about melanoma is a pretty personal deal to me, and I have AVOIDED the use of sunscreen for nearly 10 years.

For the facts behind why I chose to do this, read on.

Sunscreen and Melanoma

Most Doctors and government agencies the western world over advise people to use sunscreen to reduce their risk of skin cancer, particularly nasty CMM.

Despite this promotion of sunscreen and its constant availability, the incidence of CMM rose 81% between 1973 and 2003 in the USA, and continues to rise at 3% a year.

The same study I pulled that one out of noted “There currently is little evidence that sunscreens are protective against CMM”. No kidding.

A number of further studies have come out proposing that not only does sunscreen not prevent melanoma, but have even suggested that sunscreen use may actually increase the risk of CMM

So we have CMM rates increasing, studies showing that sunscreen doesn’t help and may even be harmful. Is that what you think you when you look at all the ads devoted to sunscreen and decide to incorporate the “slap on some sunscreen” approach to skin cancer prevention?

How about we add some paper to the fire and talk about sun exposure and melanoma ….

Sun Exposure and Melanoma

A couple of study synopses for you:

1. A 2005 study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI) looked at the link between sun exposure and mortality from melanoma.

This study, conducted over five years, concluded that frequent exposure to sunlight resulted in a 50% reduction in mortality rates from melanoma.

Yes, 50% REDUCTION in mortality rates.

2. People in the Northern states of the USA where there is LESS sun and year long radiation have a 20% plus higher rate of CMM than those who live in the year round sunshine states of Florida, Arizona, Texas. (30/100,000 vs 25/100,000)

3. Cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) has been increasing at a steady exponential rate in fair-skinned, indoor workers since before 1940. A paradox exists between indoor and outdoor workers because indoor workers get three to nine times less solar UV exposure than outdoor workers get, yet only indoor workers have an increasing incidence of CMM

Rates of incidence of melanoma are not increasing in outdoor workers yet have been increasing in indoor workers steadily since 1940.

If it was sunshine that was causing the melanoma, this would hardly be the case now would it?

So what is going on?

To get a better idea we need to quickly look at the ultraviolet radiation (UV) present in sunlight.

For the people falling asleep already, I promise to get to some recommendations before the end of the post.

Microwave me baby – Sun and UV radiation

There are two types of radiation most prevalent in sunlight, UVA and UVB. For years, researchers and sunscreens focused on UVB, and blocking it.

That is because UVB was thought to be the primary causative agent of of all skin cancers via direct DNA damage. This is also the one that makes you feel like you are “burning” when you get enough of it.

To me burning = natural alarm system. We will return to that. Back to UVB.

When you look at the SPF protection on your sunscreen label, they are referring to UVB. UVA is not covered in this.

Some of the newest sunscreens do now include some UVA blocking protection, but a review of the UVA and sunscreens has shown that even the very best ones block only 25% of the UVA. (This best result was achieved using Titanium Dioxide, a potential carcinogen in itself).

So what is the deal with UVA? It may not smash your DNA directly like UVB has the potential to do but it would appear that UVA can cause havoc to the DNA via oxidative stress and degradation of Vitamin D, UVA exposure in the absence of UVB being highly correlated to increased melanoma risk.

Oooohhh. Vitamin D! We are back! I thought I would never get there.

It is important that you note that Vitamin D is made by our bodies from skin exposure to….. drums please…. UVB radiation from the sun.

Yep, those sunscreens are designed to block UVB, and if you don’t get enough UVB in your life, you don’t get to make Vitamin D.

That means you are either stuck with Vitamin D from foods (found in small quantities in liver, fatty fish, eggs) but those are tiny amounts, or relying on supplementation.

You might wonder why as a spokesperson for a supplement company I don’t jump up and down about you taking our Vitamin D more. This is because while we do think that supplementation is a long way better than nothing, supplementation is a very distant second to sunshine on the skin.

Want more Vitamin D in your life, and all the immuno-protecting, cell-regulating benefits that go with it? The SUN is by far your best option.

So lets talk then about why sunscreens not only do not protect against melanoma, and my actually increase your risk of it.

1. Sunscreens block UVB rays, the ones that we need to make Vitamin D – in other words, block the bodies natural defense mechanism AGAINST many cancers, including melanoma, while allowing IN the UVA, which can increase your risk for melanoma.

This is a bad plan for success.

2. By blocking UVB rays, we stop or delay the “burning” response, our bodies’ natural alarm system for too much sun exposure. Thereby allowing us to stay out in the sun longer than our body wants to.

The “I’ve had enough UV radiation” natural alarm override – this is a bad plan for success. When the fire alarm goes off after sensing smoke from a fire in your house, do you put on some ear plugs so you can stay in the house longer?

3. Improved sense of confidence in sun burning time – resulting in a false sense of confidence, resulting in us prolonging our time spent in the sun. Use of sunscreen results in INCREASED incidence of sunburn. More than 66% of sunburned people in one study had used sunscreen to prolong their time in the sun.

And the most likely to use sunscreen are those whose skin is most likely to burn, with sunscreen taken to increase time in the sun without “sunburn” – the highest risk category.

The Kiwi One-Liner On The Sunscreen Approach: Let’s let in the rays that can cause melanoma, block the ones that make Vitamin D which can help protect us (in people who due to modern lifestyles frequently have low levels of cancer protecting vitamin D to begin with), extend our time in those rays beyond our bodies natural tolerance and in ratios of UVA to UVB that are alien to our chemistry, and rub a host of chemicals into our skin that we sure as hell wouldn’t want our children to eat.

If this sounds like a good plan to you, stick to it. Personally, I think it is crap.

After a summary of the studies relating to melanoma, it would appear that people who go into the sun rarely, yet when they do get sunburned, are by far the highest risk for melanoma.

“We agree that intense, intermittent outdoor UV overexposures and sunburns initiate CMM; we now propose that increased UVA exposures and inadequately maintained cutaneous levels of vitamin D(3) promotes CMM.”  – Godar et al. 2009

I think their hypothesis is pretty much on the money based on everything out there right now.

Perfect Example of Stupidity In The Sun (photo credit: shelleylyn)

So what is the prescription for sunshine success.

The long version: Finding your own unique middle ground where you are getting adequate cutaneous vitamin D status without increasing your risk to develop UV-induced skin cancer and in line with your own skin pigment, lifestyle, and climate considerations.

Consider that for the bulk of human evolution, humans were in equatorial regions. What do people look like who come from those regions?

Plenty of melanin, darker skin, less risk of melanoma, harder to burn but likely a much higher need for total sun exposure to ensure adequate vitamin D status.

Over generations of folks drifting northwards in Europe, whiter, more sun sensitive skin was naturally selected for. With less melanin in the skin (which by the way, you can alter upwards with plenty of sun exposure, known as “tanning”) sun rays came pounding into the skin, and people could synthesize more Vitamin D off of less sunlight. They also tend to burn more quickly.

A trade off.

Cutaneous levels of melanin adjust upwards in response to frequent response to sun exposure. This increases time to burn generally in line with skin color. It should be noted that the individual variation in the optimal amount of sun exposure varies dramatically by genetics, lifestyle, and climate.

Soooooo, if you are of Sub-Saharan African descent and living in Alaska – you are probably going to need a lot of time outdoors to get anywhere near enough cutaneous Vitamin D. Burning is going to be the least of of your worries.

And, if you are a red-haired pale-skinned Scottish descent living in Rio de Janeiro, you will need to cover up or seek shade pretty quickly, especially in the summer months. But don’t AVOID the sun, just be smart about it. Over time, your ability to stay out in the sun will increase slightly with the increased melanin production, thereby decreasing your risk of sunburn.

Remember, it is sunBURN that is the enemy, not sunSHINE.

What about aging?

UVA – aging via oxidative damage – think on an apple going brown after you cut it open

UVB – aging via direct dna damage (though this damaged skin seems to protect against melanoma)

Both cause aging. My experience with people who have sought the sun in intelligent, consistent incremental doses throughout their lives has tended to be a golden glow, which I find attractive.

This is a personal preference, so your call on how much time you spend out in the sun each day. Excessive time in the sun WILL age your skin faster.

For those with fair skin and obsessively worried about sun related aging, the trick will be getting in enough and then leaving the sun immediately. At a guestimate, if you are very fair skinned then building up to just 20 minutes a day total in summer may be more than enough to satisfy Vitamin D requirements. Do this in four doses of 5 minutes and the world is your oyster.

Don’t forget all this will vary massively depending on genetics, lifestyle and climate. If playing sunshine minimalist for whatever reason I absolutely recommend you get your vitamin d levels checked to make sure you are not on the low level.

What about sunscreen toxicity?

A lot of fuss has been made about whether or not sunscreens have toxic properties.

The two ingredients most people jump up and down about are Octyl Methoxycinnamate (OMC) and Titanium Dioxide.

OMC, a chemical compound present in 90% or more of commercially available sunscreens, can potentially damage tissues if it penetrates past the dead dermal layer of your skin. I personally think this is highly likely.

Titanium dioxide, mentioned earlier, a popular (and so far, highest efficacy) ingredient used to block UVA rays, can block up to 25% of UVA rays but can cause an increase in cancer in mice via DNA damage, oxidative stress, and an increase in pro-inflammatory cytokines. That said, mice are mice, people are people.

Whenever thinking about using a chemical on my body, or not, and in terms of how much and how often, I always remember my old chemistry teachers advice;

“When dealing with chemicals, if you wouldn’t EAT it, or feed it to your children, then don’t sniff it, taste it, or touch it with any part of your skin”.

Obviously you will make your own call on this. Since the only reason to take sunscreen is to extend your time under the sun beyond what you think your body can do naturally without burning or aging effects, and sunscreens block UVB and therefore Vitamin D and may in fact be toxic, my take on sunscreen….. is to skip it.

Some will chase “natural” sunscreens, but again over to you on how you want to play with that one, but if women especially want to put a small amount of sunscreen in sensitive places like the sides of their eyes, I am not going to judge you.

Me? The sun I seek, I am the opposite of a minimalist when it comes to sun exposure. I feel beter, more relaxed, more energetic, and getting outdoors in the sun makes me happy.

I am also pretty olive skinned, when I have had enough, I skip the sunscreen, instead cover up or go for shade, just like my ancestors did.

The Kiwi Prescription for Sunny Times happiness:

Do not avoid the sun – doing so will result in low vitamin D levels and increased likelihood of depression

Do not BURN. SunBURN is your enemy. The occasional burn and not much sun otherwise is the worst thing you can do

Listen to your skin, at the first sign of reddening or burning, you should already be out of the sun

Seek incremental sun exposure. Start with short doses, of 10 minutes each, before 11am and after 4pm each day if fair skinned in summer. You will quickly build a tolerance and can extend your time in the sun as desired.

Once your sun dosage is done for the day/period, seek shade or cover up.

If you choose to continue your time in the sun, covering up is superior to sunscreen.

Sunscreen increases cancer risk and may be toxic – ditching the sunscreen is recommended

Do not use sunscreen to prolong your exposure to the sun

The same rules apply to your kids!

Let Your Kids Play In The Sun Intelligently, Starting With Small Doses, Which Can Be Longer Early and Late In The Day. Then Cover Them Up. (Smart Sun Exposure As a Child DECREASES Melanoma Risk). Same Rules Apply To Big People

I also recommend you keep your anti-oxidant coverage right up via smart nutritional choices to assist in protection against excessive oxidative stress.

As always, if you are eating according to my food quality guidelines in the Food for Fat Loss series, then you are avoiding pro-inflammatory n6:n3 loads, gut damage and inflammation, and nasty metabolic byproducts of poor insulin metabolism. It is highly recommended that you eat this way, or something very similar.

Always avoid sunburn, but for health and happiness I would much rather you had a tiny bit too much sun, than too little.

I haven’t been burned in years. Food has something to do with it, but so does my sun hat.

Take it away mate, I hope you enjoy your adventures in the sun this weekend.

Enjoying some intelligent sun exposure will make you happy, I guarantee it.

“100% Focus on Happiness”

That is my mantra, and it starts with phenomenal health.

Best,

Chris “the Kiwi”

Healing: A Tibetan Buddhist Perspective

31 05 2012

What is healing?

What do we mean by healing? Do we mean healing of the physical body, healing of the psyche/soul/mind, or both of these. What is the connection between body and mind?

Many modern healing techniques regard successful healing as the cure of the presenting physical problem, whether this be symptoms of cancer, AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, or some other illness. If the person does not recover from the presenting physical problem, or if that problem recurs or another develops at a later time, this may be regarded as failure.

It is not uncommon in these situations for the therapist or organisation that has been helping the “sick” person to infer or state that the person must have done something wrong, that they haven’t stuck strictly enough to the diet or meditated enough or done whatever else it was that they were supposed to do.

In these situations the person can become very guilty, depressed or angry. In many cases, they just give up hope. To avoid these problems, it is necessary to consider a more comprehensive view of healing that incorporates not only physical healing but mental healing.

Mind is the creator

To understand healing from the Buddhist perspective, a useful starting point is to consider the Buddhist concept of mind. The mind is non-physical. It is formless, shapeless, colourless, genderless and has the ability to cognize or know. The basic nature of mind is pure, limitless and pervasive, like the sun shining unobstructedly in a clear sky.

The problems or sickness we experience are like clouds in the sky obscuring the sun. Just as the clouds temporarily block the sun but are not of the same nature as the sun, our problems or sickness are temporary and the causes of them can be removed from the mind.

From the Buddhist perspective, the mind is the creator of sickness and health. In fact, the mind is believed to be the creator of all of our problems. That is, the cause of disease is internal, not external.

Unlimited potential

You are probably familiar with the concept of karma, which literally means action. All of our actions lay down imprints on our mindstream which have the potential to ripen at some time in the future. These actions can be positive, negative or neutral. These karmic seeds are never lost. The negative ones can ripen at any time in the form of problems or sickness; the positive ones in the form of happiness, health or success.

To heal present sickness, we have to engage in positive actions now. To prevent sickness occurring again in the future, we have to purify, or clear, the negative karmic imprints that remain on our mindstream.

Karma is the creator of all happiness and suffering. If we don’t have negative karma we will not get sick or receive harm from others. Buddhism asserts that everything that happens to us now is the result of our previous actions, not only in this lifetime but in other lifetimes. What we do now determines what will happen to us in the future.

In terms of present and future healing, the main objective is to guard our own actions, or karma. This requires constant mindfulness and awareness of all the actions of our body, speech and mind. We should avoid carrying out any actions that are harmful to ourselves and to others.

Buddhism is therefore a philosophy of total personal responsibility. We have the ability to control our destiny, including the state of our body and mind. Each one of us has unlimited potential – what we have to do is develop that potential.

Healthy mind, healthy body

Why do some people get ill while others remain in the best of health? Consider skin cancer. Of all the people who spend many hours out in the sun, some will develop skin cancer and others will not. The external situation is the same for all of them, but only some will be affected. The secondary cause of the skin cancer – the sun – is external, but the primary cause – the imprints laid down on the mindstream by previous actions – is internal.

Also, people with similar types of cancer will often respond quite differently to the same treatment, whether this be orthodox or alternative. Some will make a complete recovery. Some will recover temporarily and then develop a recurrence. Others will rapidly become worse and die. Logically one has to look to the mind for the cause of these differences.

Buddhism asserts that for lasting healing to occur, it is necessary to heal not only the current disease with medicines and other forms of treatment, but also the cause of the disease, which originates from the mind. If we do not heal or purify the mind, the sickness and problems will recur again and again.

This introduces the notion of “ultimate healing”. By ridding the mind of all its accumulated “garbage”, all of the previously committed negative actions and thoughts, and their imprints, we can be free of problems and sickness permanently. We can achieve ultimate healing – a state of permanent health and happiness.

In order to heal the mind and hence the body, we have to eliminate negative thoughts and their imprints, and replace them with positive thoughts and imprints.

The inner enemy

The basic root of our problems and sickness is selfishness, what we can call the inner enemy. Selfishness causes us to engage in negative actions, which place negative imprints on the mindstream. These negative actions can be of body, speech or mind, such as thoughts of jealousy, anger and greed.

Selfish thoughts also increase pride, which results in feelings of jealousy towards those higher than us, superiority towards those lower than us and competitiveness towards equals. These feelings in turn result in an unhappy mind, a mind that is without peace. On the other hand, thoughts and actions directed to the well-being of others bring happiness and peace to the mind.

Conscious living, conscious dying

It is important to consider what happens to us when we die. The Buddhist view is that at the time of death the subtle consciousness, which carries with it all the karmic imprints from previous lives, separates from the body. After spending up to forty-nine days in an intermediate state between lives, the consciousness enters the fertilised egg of its future mother at or near the moment of conception. New life then begins. We bring into our new life a long history of previous actions with the potential to ripen at any time or in any of a myriad ways.

The state of mind at the time of death is vitally important and can have a considerable effect on the situation into which we are reborn. Hence the need to prepare well for death and to be able to approach our death with a peaceful, calm and controlled mind.

Death itself can be natural, due to exhaustion of the lifespan, or untimely, due to certain obstacles. These obstacles arise from the mind and can be counteracted in different ways. One method commonly employed in Tibetan Buddhism to remove life obstacles is to save the lives of animals that would otherwise have been killed. For example, animals can be rescued from being slaughtered or live bait can be purchased and released.

For those with a life threatening illness, it is important to understand that being free of that illness doesn’t mean that you will have a long life. There are many causes of death and death can happen to anybody at any time.

Not just pills and potions

Tibetan medicine is popular and effective. It is mostly herbal medicine, but its uniqueness lies in the fact that in the course of its preparation it is blessed extensively with prayers and mantras, giving it more power.

It is said that taking such medicine will either result in recovery, or, if the person is close to death, they will die quickly and painlessly. (Another theory, based on personal experience, is that it tastes so bad you want to recover quickly so that you can stop taking the medicine!)

Blessed pills and blessed water are also used extensively. The more spiritually developed the person carrying out the blessings or the healing practices, the more powerful is the healing result or potential. These pills often contain the relics of previous great meditators and saints, bestowing much power on the pills.

Many Tibetan lamas actually blow on the affected part of the body to effect healing or pain relief. I have seen a person with AIDS with intense leg pain have his pain disappear after a lama meditated intensely and blew on his leg for twenty minutes. Compassion is the power that heals.

Visualisation can also be very powerful healing. One method is to visualise a ball of white light above your head, with the light spreading in all directions. Imagine the light spreading through your body, completely dissolving away all sickness and problems. Concentrate on the image of your body as completely healed and in the nature of light.

This type of meditation is even more powerful when combined with visualising holy images and reciting mantras. I often tell my Christian patients to visualise the light as Jesus, with the light emanating from him.

In the Tibetan tradition, there are many Buddha figures (deities) which can be visualised while reciting their mantra. The Medicine Buddha; Chenrezig, or Avalokiteshvara (the Buddha of Compassion); or one of the long-life deities such as Amitabha are commonly used. Deities can be in peaceful or wrathful aspects. The wrathful ones are often used to cure heavy disease such as AIDS.

If you are not comfortable with these images, you can use other objects such as crystals, or simply visualise all the universal healing energy absorbing into you, transforming your body into light, and imagine yourself as totally healed.

Over the centuries many people have used these methods and have recovered from their illnesses, even from conditions such as leprosy, paralysis and cancer. The aim of these practises is to heal the mind as well as the body, so that the diseases or problems will not recur in the future.

Also, many diseases are associated with spirit harm. Lamas and other practitioners will often recite certain prayers and mantras or engage in ceremonies to stop the spirit harm and allow the person to recover.

A seven year old girl I knew had petit-mal epilepsy as the result of spirit harm; the epilepsy disappeared after various rituals and prayers had been performed. Whenever she had an epileptic attack, the girl would see a frightening apparition coming towards her. After the initial prayers had been performed, however, her attacks lessened and she would see a brick wall between her and the frightening figure. This wall was the colour of a monk’s robes. Eventually the attacks and visions disappeared altogether.

In summary, we can say that the essential ingredients in the healing process, for both the person doing the healing and the person being healed, are compassion, faith, and pure morality.

Changing our minds

Another powerful method of healing in Tibetan Buddhism is to meditate on the teachings known as thought transformation. These methods allow a person to see the problem or sickness as something positive rather than negative. A problem is only a problem if we label it a problem. If we look at a problem differently, we can see it as an opportunity to grow or to practice, and regard it as something positive. We can think that having this problem now ripens our previous karma, which does not then have to be experienced in the future.

If someone gets angry at us, we can choose to be angry in return or to be thankful to them for giving us the chance to practice patience and purify this particular karma. It takes a lot of practice to master these methods, but it can be done.

It is our concepts which often bring the greatest suffering and fear. For example, due to a set of signs and symptoms, the doctor gives the label ‘AIDS’ or ‘cancer’. This can cause great distress in a person’s mind, because they forget that it is only a label, that there is no truly existent, permanent AIDS or cancer. ‘Death’ is another label that can generate a lot of fear. But in reality ‘death’ is only a label for what happens when the consciousness separates from the body, and there is no real death from its own side. This also relates to our concept of ‘I’ and of all other phenomena. They are all just labels and have no true, independent existence.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche, a highly realised Tibetan Lama, says that the most powerful healing methods of all are those based on compassion, the wish to free other beings from their suffering. The compassionate mind – calm, peaceful, joyful and stress-free – is the ideal mental environment for healing. A mind of compassion stops our being totally wrapped up in our own suffering situations. By reaching out to others we become aware of not just my pain but the pain (that is, the pain of all beings).

Many people find the following technique powerful and effective: think “By me experiencing this disease or pain or problem, may all the other beings in the world be free of this disease, pain or problem” or “I am experiencing this pain/sickness/problem on behalf of all living beings.”

One voluntarily takes on suffering in order for others to be free of it. This is similar to the Christian concept of regarding one’s suffering as sharing the suffering of Jesus on the cross. Even death can be used in this way: “By me experiencing death, may all other beings be freed from the fears and difficulties of the death process.”

We have to ask ourselves “What is the purpose of my life? Why do I want to have good health and a long life?”. The ultimate purpose of our life is to be of benefit to others. If we live longer and just create more negative karma, it is a waste of time.

Giving and taking is another powerful meditation. As you breathe in, visualise taking the suffering and the causes of suffering from all living beings, in the form of black smoke. When breathing in the black smoke, visualise smashing the black rock of selfishness at your heart, allowing compassion to manifest freely. As you breathe out, visualise breathing out white light that brings them happiness, enjoyment and wisdom.

Developing compassion is more important than having friends, wealth, education. Why? Because it is only compassion that guarantees a happy and peaceful mind, and it is the best thing to help us at the time of death

We can use our sickness and problems in a very powerful way for spiritual growth, resulting in the development of compassion and wisdom. The highest development of these qualities is the full realisation of our potential, the state of full enlightenment. Enlightenment brings great benefit to ourselves and allows us to work extensively for others. This is the state of ultimate healing.

I have outlined some of the concepts that are the basis of the Buddhist philosophy on healing. Many of these methods were taught by Lama Zopa Rinpoche at Tara Institute in Melbourne in August 1991 during the first course given by Lama Zopa specifically for people with life-threatening illnesses.

Some of these ideas may appear unusual at first, but please keep an open mind about them. If some of the ideas appear useful to you, please use them; if not, leave them aside.

May you achieve health and happiness.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: The communication in this [post] is intended for informational purposes only. Nothing in this [post] is intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice.

Part 1
Dr. Tullio Simoncini
Baking Soda Treatment to Stop Cancer

Most of us are going to be surprised to find out that there is an oncologist in Rome Italy, Dr. Tullio Simoncini, destroying cancer tumors with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) [1]. Sodium bicarbonate is safe, extremely inexpensive and unstoppably effective when it comes to cancer tissues. It’s an irresistible chemical, cyanide to cancer cells for it hits the cancer cells with a shock wave of alkalinity, which allows much more oxygen into the cancer cells than they can tolerate. Cancer cells cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen. Sodium bicarbonate is, for all intent and purposes, an instant killer of tumors. Full treatment takes only days, as does another cancer treatment that heats the cancer cells with laser generated heat. (At bottom see combining ph shift with heat.)

The extracellular (interstitial) pH (pHe) of solid tumours is significantly more acidic compared to normal tissues [2].

Case one: A patient diagnosed with pulmonary neoplasm of the lung, underwent treatment with sodium bicarbonate, before submitting to surgery to remove part of the lung. Treatment consisted of sodium bicarbonate administered orally, by aerosol, and IV. After first treatment reduction of nodules and absorption was evident, and after 8 months was no longer visible at all. Treatments also reduced size of the liver and results were confirmed by both X-ray and CAT scan.

Studies have shown how manipulation of tumour pH with sodium bicarbonate enhances some forms of chemotherapy [3]. Proteins can be modified both in vivo and in vitro by increases in acidity. In fact pH is the regulatory authority that controls most cellular processes. The pH balance of the human bloodstream is recognized by medical physiology texts as one of the most important biochemical balances in all of human body chemistry. pH is the acronym for “Potential Hydrogen”. In definition, it is the degree of concentration of hydrogen ions in a substance or solution. It is measured on a logarithmic scale from 0 to 14. Higher numbers mean a substance is more alkaline in nature and there is a greater potential for absorbing more hydrogen ions. Lower numbers indicate more acidity with less potential for absorbing hydrogen ions.

Our body pH is very important because pH controls the speed of our body’s biochemical reactions. It does this by controlling the speed of enzyme activity as well as the speed that electricity moves through our body. The higher (more alkaline) the pH of a substance or solution, the more electrical resistance that substance or solution holds. Therefore, electricity travels slower with higher pH. If we say something has an acid pH, we are saying it is hot and fast. Alkaline pH on the other hand, biochemically speaking, is slow and cool.

Cancer tissues have a much higher concentration of toxic chemicals, pesticides, etc then do healthy tissues.

In 1973, a study conducted by the Department of Occupational Health at Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem found that when cancerous breast tissue is compared with non-cancerous tissue from elsewhere in the same woman’s body, the concentration of toxic chemicals such as DDT and PCBs was “much increased in the malignant tissue compared to the normal breast and adjacent adipose tissue” [4]. This should say something to the oncologists of the world about chemical etiologies that are going undiagnosed and untreated.

Part of any successful cancer treatment includes chelation and detoxification of heavy metals and a host of toxic chemicals, which are all invading our bodies’ everyday. It is literally raining mercury, uranium contamination is increasing, lead we are discovering is even more toxic than anyone ever believed and is even in the bread that we eat, arsenic is in our chicken, the government still wants you to get your yearly mercury flu shot, dentists of course are still using hundreds of tons of mercury exposing patients to internalized toxic waste dumps (mercury vapors from hell), fluoride is still put in the water and chlorine is breathed in most showers. This just covers a small slice of the toxic disaster that is the hallmark of life in the 21st century. But oncologists have just not been able to understand that cancer patients are suffering from poisoning on a massive scale with all the chemicals scientists have already established cause cancer.

The IMVA recommends alkaline foods and sodium bicarbonate so that the pH of the blood remains high, which in turn means that the blood is capable of carrying more oxygen. This in turn keeps every cell in the body at peak efficiency and helps the cell eliminate waste products. Detoxification and chelation will proceed more easily and safely under slightly alkaline conditions. Increased urinary pH reduces oxidative injury in the kidney so it behooves us to work clinically with bicarbonate.

Patients receiving sodium bicarbonate achieved urine pHs of 6.5 as opposed to 5.6 with those receiving sodium chloride.
This alkalinization is theorized to have a protective effect against the formation of free-radicals that may cause nephropathy [5]. Dr. Michael Metro

Body ph level changes are intense in the profundity of their biological effects. Even genes directly experience external pH. pH differentially regulates a large number of proteins. Increased oxidative stress, which correlates almost exponentially with ph changes into the acidic, is especially dangerous to the mitochondria, which suffer the greatest under oxidative duress. Epigenetics, which may now have begun eclipsing traditional genetics, commonly describes how factors such as diet and smoking, rather than inheritance influence how genes behave.

The great advantage of knowing the prime cause of a disease is that it can then be attacked logically and over a broad front. Dr. Otto Warburg

Dr. Otto Warburg, two times Nobel Prize winner, stated in his book, The Metabolism of Tumors that the primary cause of cancer was the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory cell chemistry by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a fermentation process, which can be triggered only in the absence of oxygen at the cell level. What Warburg was describing was a classic picture of acidic conditions. Just like overworked muscle cells manufacture lactic acid by-products as waste, cancerous cells spill lactic acid and other acidic compounds causing acid pH.

After we just saw how important sulfur is in human health and how useful a basic chemical like sodium thiosulfate can be, we now get a crash course in the power of sodium bicarbonate and the act of instantly turning cancer cells alkaline. Might as well shoot a guided cruise missile at them – so effective, safe, quick and precise is sodium bicarbonate, inexpensive as well. Just a few pennies a day of it will keep cancer further away, keeping it at arms length from ourselves, patients and loved ones. It is something we can use to treat our water with as well, excellent to put in distilled or reverse osmosis water or any water for that matter.

A true understanding of cancer is impossible without understanding why some tissues in the body are deficient in oxygen and therefore prone to cancer. Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water (H2O) decomposes into H+ and OH-. When a solution contains more H+ than OH- then it is said to be acid. When it contains more OH- than H+ then it is said to be alkaline. When oxygen enters an acid solution it can combine with H+ ions to form water. Oxygen helps to neutralize the acid, while at the same time the acid prevents oxygen from reaching the tissues that need it. Acidic tissues are devoid of free oxygen. An alkaline solution is just the reverse. Two hydroxyl ions (OH-) can combine to produce one water molecule and one oxygen atom. In other words, an alkaline solution can provide oxygen to the tissues.

The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Below 7 is acid and above 7 is alkaline. The blood, lymph and cerebral spinal fluid in the human body are designed to be slightly alkaline at a pH of 7.4.

At a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at pH 8.5 cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live. This has given rise to a variety of treatments based on increasing the alkalinity of the tissues such as vegetarian diet, the drinking of fresh fruit and vegetable juices, and dietary supplementation with alkaline minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, cesium and rubidium. But nothing can compare to the instant alkalinizing power of sodium bicarbonate for safe and effective treatment of cancer.

Like magnesium chloride or sulfates are excellent emergency medicines, basic chemicals, nutritional in nature, sodium bicarbonate is a nutritional medicine meaning it cannot and will not end up controlled by CODEX. To control bicarbonate they would have to demand mothers stop making cake with it. We might thus identify sodium bicarbonate as an emergency medicine for cancer with the above supporting approaches working on broader levels to help overall physiology change to a degree where body chemistry is unfavorable for new cancer growth.

Cancer seems to grow slowly in a highly acid environment (because the acids cause it to partially destroy itself) and may actually grow more quickly as your body becomes more alkaline prior to reaching the healthy pH slightly above 7.4 where the cancer becomes dormant. Therefore it is important to get pH above 7.4 quickly. Once one has achieved a pH above 7.4, it is useful to monitor saliva pH regularly to ensure that the body remains sufficiently alkaline.

Earlier and more frequent use of sodium bicarbonate was associated with higher early resuscitability rates and with better long-term neurological outcome. Sodium bicarbonate is beneficial during CPR [6].

“The therapeutic treatment of bicarbonate salts can be administered orally, through aerosol, intravenously and through catheter for direct targeting of tumors.” All of Dr. Tullio Simoncini’s treatments with sodium bicarbonate are directed as specifically as possible to the organs involved, for example, vaginally as well as abdominally into the peritoneal space for cervical cancer, through the hepatic artery for liver cancer in order to get the solution as close to the affected area as possible. Sodium bicarbonate administered orally, via aerosol or intravenously can achieve positive results in most tumors, including the brain, while others, such as the serious ones of the bones can remain unaffected. Dr. Simoncini, with the help of interventionist radiologists was able to reach those areas of the body that had previously been inaccessible. This was achieved through positioning appropriate catheters either in cavities for peritoneum and pleura, or in arteries to reach other organs [7].

The most effective measure to treat RT-induced mucositis in patients with head and neck cancer is frequent oral rinsing with a sodium bicarbonate rinse, to reduce the amount of oral microbial flora [8].

Case two: A nine-year-old child is hospitalized and diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma on the right humerus. Despite several chemotherapy cycles surgery removed the humeral bone. Growth of three tumor masses continued despite continued efforts to stop progression. Sodium bicarbonate salts treatment were then started administered by catheter into the right sub-clavian artery in order to administer the salts (phleboclysis of 500 cc at five per cent) directly on the tumoral masses.

Of the 3 masses shown by the scographic scan of May 7, 2001, whose size is respectively:
a. 6.5 cm
b. 4.4 cm
c. 2.4 cm

After the sodium bicarbonate salts treatment only one tumor was left, with a size of only 1.5 cm, which is most likely residual scarring, as shown by the echography of September 10, 2001.

Sodium bicarbonate injection is also indicated in the treatment of metabolic acidosis which may occur in severe renal disease, uncontrolled diabetes, and circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe dehydration, extracorporeal circulation of blood, cardiac arrest and severe primary lactic acidosis. Sodium bicarbonate is further indicated in the treatment of drug intoxications, including barbiturates. Sodium carbonate has been found effective in treating poisoning or overdose from many chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs by negating the cardiotoxic and neurotoxic effects [9]. Sodium bicarbonate is useful in treating neurological disorders in children.

Knowledge of sodium bicarbonate is important for parents because the rate of childhood cancer is growing exponentially. But parents who resist the radiation burning, cutting and the lethal chemicals are regularly hauled before the courts only to have their children taken away from them. Oncologists are increasingly resorting to the justice system to have children made wards of the courts who then turn them over to medically irresponsible practitioners. It is inexcusable separating a child from his mother and father in the middle of a medical crisis. Adding to the stress by tormenting patients’ hearts and souls has nothing to do with safe or effective medicine. The naked truth is doctors and medical institutions have not earned the necessary trust for this level of intervention in people’s lives. With patient safety slipping year by year [10] children are not safe in hospitals, much less so if forced at gunpoint from their parents embrace.

An extremely simple therapy used by physicians who treat autism is to supply a mild antidote that neutralizes the excess acids. The most convenient product is a nonprescription drug called AlkaSeltzer Gold™. Do not use any other kind of AlkaSeltzer™. AlkaSeltzer Gold™ is simply a very safe product (sodium and potassium bicarbonate) that helps to neutralize excess acids of any kind. Dr. William Shaw on Biological Treatments for Autism and PDD

One mother wrote, “It worked so well for both of my children that the die-off was an uneventful experience, even though they both had very high levels of yeast.” The restoring of acid/alkaline balance also relieves many allergies. “These children also had grave disturbances in electrolyte chemistry, and tended to be acidotic (low CO). The data that unfolded was fascinating and clearly earmarked the acidosis and hypoxic state (low serum bicarbonate = low O2 levels). Potassium bicarbonate, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate and the like were used. Now we began to understand why so many children responded to Buffered C (potassium bicarbonate, calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate), and others needed a more specific buffer (in some children for example niacin was grossly depleted and they required niacin bicarbonate),” wrote Patricia Kane.

The acid/alkaline balance is one of the most overlooked aspects of health, though many have written much about it. In general, the American public is heavily acid, excepting vegetarians.

Case three: A 62-year-old patient undergoes surgery in December 1998 for endometrial adenocarcinoma, followed by successive cycles of radiotherapy and anti-hormone therapy. Following the thickening of the peritoneum and the growth of several lymph nodes due to carcinosis; from the clinical point of view, the patient’s condition decayed with the presence of exhaustion, general swelling, intestinal meteorism, irregularity of evacuation, steady feeling of heaviness and blood pressure instability. Treatment with a 5% sodium bicarbonate solution administered alternately thru an endoperitoneal catheter and via IV showed rapid improvement to a normal condition of health. A final CAT scan confirms the regression of the peritoneal carcinosis and a stabilization of the size of the lymph nodes when compared to the preceding year.

The kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure, military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize the urine if this happens. This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes excretion of the nontoxic uranium-carbonate complex. The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate diminishes the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys [11].

Case four: A 40-year-old patient underwent surgical intervention (left radical mastectomy) for mammarian carcinoma seven months earlier. After three months of chemotherapy, the patient is affected by: “diffused pulmonary and hepatic metastasis; bone metastasis particularly to the fifth and sixth lumbar vertebrae, with invasion and compression of the medullar channel, which is causing extreme pain which makes the patient unresponsive to any treatment.” All pain suppressant drugs – morphine included – are totally ineffective and the patient is totally prostrate even unable to sleep. Believing that fungal colonies amassed in the medullar channel will respond to administration of sodium bicarbonate salts, lumbar injections are begun.

Dr Tullio Simoncini recounts: “As I administer it by slowly injecting 50 cc of sodium bicarbonate solution at 8.4 %, the patient tosses and with a thread of a voice confesses to me that she has slept only two hours in the last week. Exhausted, she whispers to me: “If only I could sleep half an hour tonight.” But the day after, she calls me on the phone and says: “I have slept all night”. After two more lumbar injections of the bicarbonate salts in the next month, the pain disappeared completely. Magnetic Resonance imaging reports performed before and after treatment were defined by hospital head of the radiology department as “shocking.”

Sodium bicarbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is commonly used as an antacid for short-term relief of stomach upset, to correct acidosis in kidney disorders, to make the urine alkaline during bladder infections and to minimize uric acid crystallization during gout treatment. Prescription sodium bicarbonate products are given by injection to treat metabolic acidosis and some drug intoxications. Sodium bicarbonate is available as a nonprescription medical as well as a general house hold item. It is also used with other non-prescription drugs for short-term treatment of various conditions to treat anything from fever to moderate pain.

Sodium bicarbonate possesses the property of absorbing heavy metals, dioxins and furans. 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, etc.

Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes acids present in gases (in particular hydrochloric acid, suphur dioxide, hydrofluoric acid) to form sodium salts (sodium chloride, sodium sulphate, sodium fluoride, sodium carbonate), which are all known as Residual Sodium Chemicals. Sodium bicarbonate can be made into a paste salve with vinegar, it relieves burning from bug stings (particularly bee stings), poison ivy, nettles, and sunburn. It is used as an antacid to treat acid indigestion and heartburn. Mixed with water in a 10% solution can soften earwax for removal.

Substituting a sodium bicarbonate solution for saline infusion prior to administration of radiocontrast material seems to reduce the incidence of nephropathy [12]. Dr. Thomas P. Kennedy American Medical Association

Because sodium bicarbonate has long been known and is widely used, it has many other names including sodium hydrogen carbonate, sodium bicarb, baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda, bicarb soda, saleratus or bicarbonate of soda. It is soluble in water. This white solid is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. It has a slight alkaline taste resembling that of sodium carbonate. It is a component of the mineral natron and is found dissolved in many mineral springs. It is also produced artificially. World wide production is on the scale of 100,000 ton/year. Sodium bicarbonate is primarily used in cooking (baking) where it reacts with other components to release carbon dioxide, that helps dough “rise.”

It is commonly used to increase the pH and total alkalinity of the water for pools and spas. Sodium bicarbonate can be added as a simple solution for restoring the pH balance of water that has a high level of chlorine. It is sometimes used in septic tanks to control pH and bacteria.

Sodium bicarbonate-rich mineral water in conjunction with a low-salt diet may have a beneficial effect on calcium homeostasis [13].

Distilled water is not safe, it lacks bicarbonates and minerals and yes, it is acid forming to the body. Yet it is an excellent aid in detoxification and chelation for its purity pulls on toxicities in the body. Part of the reason why our body is acid is that it lacks enough bicarbonate necessary to neutralize the acid. Whenever the water lacks the proper bicarbonates to neutralize the water in distilled water your body basically becomes a little more acid. But we can easily treat distilled or reverse osmosis water by adding bicarbonate and magnesium and perhaps even some sodium thiosulfate. (The art and science of water treatment will be covered in The Waters of Life, another IMVA publication due out later this year. The conscious use of water favorably increases medical outcomes, often it even determines the prognosis. You cannot separate out hydration from pH. Dehydration would certainly push the body toward acidity.)

pH of the blood is the most important factor to determine the state of the microorganisms in the blood.

The native chemical and physical properties of sodium bicarbonate account for its wide range of applications, including cleaning, deodorizing, buffering, and fire extinguishing. Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes odors chemically, rather than masking or absorbing them. Consequently, it is used in bath salts and deodorant body powders. Sodium bicarbonate tends to maintain a pH of 8.1 (7 is neutral) even when acids, which lower pH, or bases, which raise pH, are added to the solution. Its ability to tabletize makes it a good effervescent ingredient in antacids and denture cleaning products. Sodium bicarbonate is also found in some anti-plaque mouthwash products and toothpaste.

Sodium bicarbonate also is indicated in severe diarrhea which is often accompanied by a significant loss of bicarbonate. Vigorous bicarbonate therapy is required in any form of metabolic acidosis where a rapid increase in plasma total CO2 content is crucial e.g. cardiac arrest, circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe dehydration , and in severe primary lactic acidosis or severe diabetic acidosis.

Sodium Bicarbonate Injection, USP is administered by the intravenous route. In cardiac arrest, a rapid intravenous dose of one to two 50 mL vials (44.6 to 100 mEq) may be given initially and continued at a rate of 50 mL (44.6 to 50 mEq) every 5 to 10 minutes if necessary (as indicated by arterial pH and blood gas monitoring) to reverse the acidosis. Caution should be observed in emergencies where very rapid infusion of large quantities of bicarbonate is indicated. Bicarbonate solutions are hypertonic and may produce an undesirable rise in plasma sodium concentration in the process. of correcting the metabolic acidosis. In cardiac arrest, however, the risks from acidosis exceed those of hypernatremia.

In the current system, if a promising compound can’t be patented, it is highly unlikely ever to make it to market, no matter how well it performs in the laboratory or in emergency room situations. The hormone melatonin [14] sold as an inexpensive food supplement in the United States, has repeatedly been shown to slow the growth of various cancers when used in conjunction with conventional treatments. Dr. Paolo Lissoni, another Italian oncologist has written many articles about this hormone and conducted clinical trials. But he has despaired over the pharmaceutical industry’s total lack of interest in his treatment approach.

We need a new approach to fight cancer, one that will work safely and effectively since the majority of us are now destined to have to suffer through cancer at one point or another in our lives. The situation in the field of oncology is horrendous and in the area of childhood oncology they have earned their place in the book “The Terror of Pediatric Medicine”, (which one can download as a free e-book.)

Most people today cringe at the idea of finding a cancer then slashing, burning and poisoning it to smithereens. Most would agree that the mainstream cancer approach offers only marginal benefits at best, and providers push screening and aggressive treatment in part because they have nothing else to give, and also because it’s very profitable.

If the body’s cellular metabolism and pH is balanced it is susceptible to little illness or disease.

Since 1971, when President Nixon declared war on cancer, the budget of the National Cancer Institute has increased to $4.8 billion from half a billion and cancer rates are still going up. For most of the past half-century, medical treatment of invasive tumors like those of the breast and colon has relied mainly on drugs, radiation or both, in effect carpet-bombing the DNA of cancer cells. These highly toxic treatments do not address the root causes of cancer and are extremely dangerous, medical approaches involving the highest risks.

The great variety of cancers must reflect a fundamental mechanism by which the disease arises, one that has not been so clearly apparent until now.

Though allopathic medicine already uses sodium bicarbonate it will not any day soon turn to its own arsenal of already available safe and inexpensive medications like sodium bicarbonate or magnesium chloride. The medical industrial complex seems unwilling to change its views on cancer so patients will need to quietly ask their doctors for intravenous bicarbonate without specifying it as a substance they want to use to cure their cancer. It will be easier to find someone if one approaches with a need to treat acidic conditions than the actual cancer. Few doctors are willing to risk their licenses so it is better not to put them in an uncomfortable situation that they cannot control.

The closer the pH is to 7.35 – 7.45, the higher our level of health and well being and our ability to resist states of disease.

Sadly this does not address the need for the use of catheters which target tumors more directly thus pushing us toward a more complete protocol that will target cancer in a more general and comprehensive way. This needs to be done anyway because killing the tumor with a rush of alkalinity that provokes an oxygen rush into the cells will not prevent the condition from reoccurring. Though we can think that acidity is a basic cause of cancer a more basic cause is addressed when we look at what leads to the acidic conditions that are so prevalent in our bodies today.

Sodium bicarbonate is an anti-fungin substance that is very diffusible and thus very effective.

Dr Tullio Simoncini says, “It is useful to consider the extreme sensitivity of fungi to saline and electrolytic solutions. These solutions, because of their extreme capacity for diffusion, are able to reach all the myceliar biological expressions, including the most infinitesimal ones. Salts and bicarbonates, by making the terrain completely inorganic, eliminates the slightest organic fonts that fungi could use for nourishment. In this context, sodium bicarbonate, which is currently used in children’s oral candidoses, appears to be a simple and handy weapon capable of uprooting, inhibiting, or attenuating any neoplastic formation wherever it is possible to easily apply it.”

Cancer is actually a four-letter word ACID, especially lactic acid as a waste product due to the low oxygen level and waste products of yeast and fungus.

For centuries, medicated baths have been one of the first lines of treatment for psoriasis. Even today, with sophisticated immunosuppressive treatments available, Dead Sea salts and spa waters are recognized to be beneficial in the management of psoriatic patients.

To assess statistically the efficacy of sodium bicarbonate baths in psoriasis patients, thirty-one patients with mild-moderate psoriasis were studied. Almost all patients who used NaHCO3- reported a statistically valuable improvement. NaHCO3- baths reduced itchiness and irritation; in general, the patients themselves recognized a beneficial impact on their psoriasis, so much so that they have continued to bathe in NaHCO3- even after the end of the study [15].

Sodium bicarbonate therapy is harmless, fast and effective because it is extremely diffusible. A therapy with bicarbonate for cancer should be set up with strong dosage, continuously, and with pauseless cycles in a destruction work which should proceed from the beginning to the end without interruption for at least 7-8 days. In general a mass of 2-3-4 centimetres will begin to consistently regress from the third to the fourth day, and collapses from the fourth to the fifth. Generally speaking, the maximum limit of the dosage that can be administered in a session gravitates around 500 cc of sodium bicarbonate at five per cent solution, with the possibility of increasing or decreasing the dosage by 20 per cent in function of the body mass of the individual to be treated and in the presence of multiple localisations upon which to apportion a greater quantity of salts, instructs Dr Simoncini.

In the early stages of acidic pH in the body’s tissues, the warning symptoms are mild. These include such things as skin eruptions, headaches, allergies, colds, flu and sinus problems. These symptoms are frequently treated (manipulated) with antibiotic drugs and suppressive medications. The longer and the deeper we become acidic the more our illness takes hold so it’s best to fight acidic conditions early on and in every presenting clinical situation. Certainly a highly toxic drug like anti viral Tamiflu won’t do a fraction of the job sodium bicarbonate will do especially if it’s combined with magnesium chloride and iodine as well as high levels of vitamin C

A Comprehensive and Varied Source for in-depth Information regarding Natural Health, Natural Foods and Natural Alternative Cures can be found at:

In late stages of acidic pH we need to turn to the most alkaline minerals to increase our throw weight of alkalinity into cancer cells. Mass spectrographic and isotope studies have shown that potassium, rubidium, and especially cesium are most efficiently taken up by cancer cells. This uptake was enhanced by Vitamins A and C as well as salts of zinc and selenium. The quantity of cesium taken up was sufficient to raise the cell to the 8 pH range [16].

There seems little grace left in medicine and it is a disgrace that allopathic medicine does not even use its own emergency medicines, proven heavies like magnesium sulfate and chloride, sodium bicarbonate and iodine to anywhere near a thousandth of a percent of their real medical potentials.

Combining pH shift with Heat

In the opening paragraph of this chapter we mentioned killing cancer cells with lasers, with heat.

“Give me a chance to create fever and I will cure any disease.” Parmenides 2000 years ago

Fever is one of the body’s own defensive and healing forces, created and sustained for the deliberate purpose of restoring health. The high temperature speeds up metabolism, inhibits the growth of the invading virus or bacteria, and literally burns the enemy with heat. Fever is an effective protective and healing measure not only against colds and simple infections, but against such serious diseases as polio and cancer.

The idea of destroying cancer with heat is certainly not new and has been widely accepted for a very long time, but has had very limited applications because it was finally concluded that, in order to ensure destruction of the cancerous growth, it is necessary to reach a temperature deadly to healthy cells as well. Many attempts have been made to bypass this problem and some methodologies have been developed like: localized hyperthermia, laserthermia, radio-fractionated hyperthermia and TTT. But they all have limitations and cannot complete the job, because they cannot achieve total necrosis and, unless the entire mass of neoplastic tissue is destroyed, the cancer will continue to grow. But:

Hyperthermia gives cancer a hard time:

1. removing accumulations of stored toxic chemicals that cause cancer

2. improving circulation so that tissues are both nourished with oxygen and flushed of acidic metabolic wastes

3. weakening or even killing cancer cells that have a lower tolerance for heat than healthy cells.

Thus we should easily conclude that far-infrared sauna treatments are going to help a cancer sufferer no matter which way we slice the treatment protocol. But for a more targeted heat to kill cancer tumors we have Dr. Antonella Carpenter who has perfected the treatment of cancer cells with heat through her use of lasers. She generates the death of the cells by suffocation via heat. Dr Carpenter, a physicist with a clinic in Little Rock, says, “As long as the entire neoplastic mass is exposed to the laser light, for the correct amount of time, the success is complete and the results, as well as the healing stages, are always the same.” Her cancer treatment is called Light Induced Enhanced Selective Hyperthermia, which in itself pretty much summarizes all the characteristics of this new therapy. With this form of treatment cancer cells reach a deadly temperature level quickly and are subject to irreversible damage and therefore die, either immediately or within 48 hours.

In a separate chapter we will be talking about hyperthermia in another context, that of the hot bathtub which we will learn to fill with healing substances like sodium bicarbonate. We will be creating our own hot springs, healing pools that will do wonders for our health. Medical treatments of the first order can be had right inside your very own bathtub.

Following public outcry, Israel banned these chemicals from being used on feed for dairy cows and cattle. Over the next ten years, the rate of breast cancer deaths in Israel declined sharply, with a 30% drop in mortality for women under 44 years of age, and an 8% overall decline. At the same time, all other known cancer risks–alcohol consumption, fat intake, lack of fruits and vegetables in the diet–increased significantly. During this period, worldwide death rates from cancer increased by 4%. The only answer scientists could find to explain this was the reduced level of environmental toxins.

[7] With the aim to reach the maximum effect, sodium bicarbonate should be administered directly on the neoplastic masses which are susceptible of regression only by destroying the fungal colonies. This is possible by the selective arteriography (the visualisation through instrumentation of specific arteries) and by the positioning of the arterial port-a-cath (these devices are small basins used to join the catheter). These methods allow the positioning of a small catheter directly in the artery that nourishes the neoplastic mass, allowing the administration of high dosages of sodium bicarbonate in the deepest recesses of the organism.

With this method, it is possible to reach almost all organs; they can be treated and can benefit from a therapy with bicarbonate salts which is harmless, fast, and effective  – with only the exception of some bone areas such as vertebrae and ribs, where the scarce arterial irrigation does not allow sufficient dosage to reach the targets. Selective arteriography therefore represents a very powerful weapon against fungi that can always be used against neoplasias, firstly because it is painless and leaves no after effects, secondly because the risks are very low.

Poisoning by drugs that block voltage- gated sodium channels produces intraventricular conduction defects, myocardial depression, bradycardia, and ventricular arrhythmias. Human and animal reports suggest that hypertonic sodium bicarbonate may be effective therapy for numerous agents possessing sodium channel blocking properties, including cocaine, quinidine, procainamide, flecainide, mexiletine, bupivacaine, and others.

[10] Patient safety incidents in U.S. hospitals increased by three percent overall from 2003 to 2005, and the error gap between the nation’s best- and worst-performing hospitals remained wide. America’s top rated centers had 40 percent lower rates of medical errors than the poorest-performing hospitals, the study showed. The fourth annual HealthGrades Patient Safety in American Hospitals Study, put out by HealthGrades, an independent health care ratings company, examined over 40 million Medicare hospitalization records at almost 5,000 hospitals from 2003 to 2005.

[14] One of the most important supplements for the breast cancer patient is high doses of the hormone melatonin at bedtime. Melatonin blocks estrogen receptors somewhat similarly to the drug tamoxifen without the long-term side effects of tamoxifen. Further, when melatonin and tamoxifen are combined, synergistic benefits occur. Melatonin can be safely taken for an indefinite period of time. The suggested dose of melatonin for breast cancer patients is 3 mg to 50 mg at bedtime. Caution: Although melatonin is strongly recommended for breast cancer patients, interleukin-2 (IL-2), which often is combined with melatonin, should be avoided by breast cancer patients. IL-2 may promote breast cancer cell division.

[16] “A mass spectrographic analysis of cancer cells showed that the cell membrane readily attached cesium, rubidium and potassium, and transmitted these elements with their associated molecules into the cancer cell. In contrast cancer membranes did not transmit sodium, magnesium, and calcium into the cell: the amount of calcium within a cancer cell is only about 1% of that for normal cells. Potassium transports glucose into the cell.

Calcium and magnesium transport oxygen into the cell. As a consequence of the above, oxygen cannot enter cancer cells so the glucose which is normally burned to carbon dioxide and water undergoes fermentation to form lactic acid within the cell. This anaerobic condition was pointed out by Warburg, as early as 1924. Potassium, and especially rubidium and cesium are the most basic of the elements. When they are taken up by the cancer cells they will thus raise the pH of the cells. Since they are very strong bases as compared to the weak lactic acid it is possible that the pH will be raised to values in the 8.5 to 9 range. In this range the life of the cancer cell is short, being a matter of days at the most. The dead cancer cells are then absorbed by the body fluids and eventually eliminated from the system.” – Dr. Brewer

Baking Soda & Maple Syrup Cancer Treatment
by Dr. Simoncini

Related Case Study (Online Testimonial):

C from Ohio writes: “Skin cancer and baking soda: Some time in the middle of January I was checking the net info on cancer always involving fungus – the info from the Italian Dr. Simoncini. My husband has been out of regular work for about 2 years and we do not have health insurance but he has needed a spot on his side taken care of. Upon watching the online video showing that cancer always comes with fungus and that baking soda could alkalize and destroy the colonies we decided to give it a try. We started by mixing baking soda with water and spreading it on a large band-aide. That did not work so well because the baking soda turns hard as a rock. My husband decided to mix it with glycerin to see if that would keep the soda softer longer and it did. The paste is made by putting some baking soda in a small dish and adding the glycerin until you have a white paste thin enough to spread on a band-aide. It still gets hard but not near as fast.

The spot on his side was a bit less than a quarter and about the thicknesses of 3 quarters. It definitely needed attention. It first reduced in height and then started shrinking circumference. It did go through various stages that looked really bad. At times I wondered what was going on. (Note: It is not a process without pain.) It was working and so my husband wanted to keep on going with it. We kept making sure the bandage was changed. He was also taking baking soda internally for a while but then stopped that. By the end of March it is basically gone. The area has a bit more healing to do but that just takes time.

The plus’s of this are so wonderful. 1. No surgery!!!! 2. No dealing with the side affects of surgery – like as muscle that doesn’t work as good because it was cut. 3. It only cost the price of baking soda, glycerin and band-aides. 4. Peace of mind.

We do realize that the fungus can still be in the body. He is trying extra strong oil of oregano to kill any remaining fungus infection. But that is another story.

Skin Cancer Before and After

02/12/2012: Violet from New York writes: “My husband and I have an alternative health practice. We have worked and with God”s grace cured many types of cancer. Cancer always occurs with an acid ph. The microbes which naturally live in our bodies evolve to pathogenic forms with an acid ph. So the clue and cure for all disease is to alkalize the body. Bathe in Epsom salt and baking soda. Drink baking soda and eat lots of raw green foods as salads, green vegetable juice and drink huge amounts of alkaline water. Read the book, the Ph miracle and the book We Beat Cancer. We studied with the doctor who wrote the first book and cured the couple that wrote the second book. We cured my own lymphatic cancer. If you want to remain young and healthy eat raw with lots of green and less fruit. Cancer loves sugar. There are good substitutes for baking soda such as ph salts. Stay well and keep alkalizing” “
