Baking Soda + Maple Syrup against Cancer

(“The Kelmun Protocol”)

Sodium bicarbonate belongs in every protocol against cancer

Cancer is, fundamentally, a relatively simple oxygendeficiency disease and the use of bicarbonate increases oxygen carrying and reaching capacity

Even though bicarbonate may or may not cause cancer cell death, it is certainly a deterrent to cancer development and will “buy time”for slower therapies to work:

–    Cancer tissuesare significantly more acidic than normal tissues - acidic tissues are low in oxygen. When alkalinity increases the supply of oxygen to the cancerous tissue, the oxygen combines with the excessive hydrogen ions, creating water and neutralizing the acid.


–    For more than a decade the University of Arizona has been using bicarbonate as a potential treatment for cancer - Researchers have investigated the very reasonable assumption that increased systemic concentrations of pH buffers would lead to reduced intra-tumoral and peri-tumoral acidosis and, as a result,inhibit malignant growth.These researchers found that consequent reduction of tumor acid concentrations significantly reduces tumor growth and invasion without altering the pH of blood or normal tissues.

How to make and Take Sodium bicarbonate/Maple Syrup Recipe

Combine 1 teaspoon Aluminum-free Baking Soda (E.g. Arm and Hammer, Bob's Red Mill brand) for every 1 Tablespoon 100% maple syrup (Grade B or dark Grade A)in pyrex, stainless, or copper cookware (Do NOT use aluminum pot/pan); (Since there are 3 teaspoons in 1 tablespoon, the ratio used is 1 part baking soda to 3 parts maple syrup)

E.g. Mix 4 teaspoons Baking Soda with 4 Tablespoons maple syrup

(this should last about a week taking 1 tsp. twice a day)

Stir briskly over LOW heat (ataround 120⁰F) for 5-10 minutes

Do not refrigerate or make more than needed for a week - to prevent separation of ingredients;

Take 1 tsp of mixture 1-3 times (no more than 3 times) per day for a maximum 1 to 2 months - Separate the doses by at least 2 hours. Start with 1 tsp and build up over a few days, adjustingto the dose that you find comfortable, whether 1, 2 or 3 teaspoons;

–   Do not take mixture too close to mealtimes since you need stomach acid to digest your food

Test pH of saliva or urine to ensure you are not over-alkalizing your body

–   First get a baseline saliva or urine pH reading – test using pH strips first thing in the morning after waking for 3 days.

Acidic pH <pH 6.8 - 7.0 is Neutral< Alkaline pH

–   If your pH reading is <7.5 you can take BS / MS mixture

–   Test pH at least once / week – and only continue protocol until pH reading approaches 7.5 and then stop - A pH of close to 7.5 creates a less friendly environment for pathogens, cancer and other diseases, but a too alkaline environment is not conducive to health either. Choose alkalizing dietary elements to naturally maintain an ideal pH, such as green vegetables and lemon juice (although acidic itself, a lemon is rich in alkalizing minerals)

Change diet during therapy - E.g. moderate meat intake (don't eat after lunch - to free up pancreatic enzymes for breaking down fibrin coating on cancer cells, which makes it easier for immune system to get at them), no/minimal sugar or white flour. You want the cancer cells to consume only your “deadly” maple syrup concoction, achieved by not providing them with other carbs).


How does bicarbonate/maple syrup treatment stop cancer?

Cancer “loves”sugar - and mixing and heating alkaline bicarbonate of soda (BS) with sugar-rich maple syrup, binds the two together such that the maple syrup targets the “sugar hungry”cancer cells (which consume 15x more glucose than normal cells), and thus “sneakily”also carries the baking soda into the cells, as if inside a proverbial maple syrup “Trojan horse”.

The alkalinity of the baking soda either:

(i) Kills the cancer microbe (or reverts it to its hibernation form) inside the cancer cell, such that the cell reverts to normal (If you accept the microbial theory of cancer)


(ii) Has an alkalizing effect forcing a rapid pH shift that kills the cell – The shock wave of alkalinity allows more oxygen into the cancer cells than they can tolerate.

Cancer cell is reverted or eliminated before the sugar delivery can cause cancer cell growth

The maple syrup enables and increases penetration of bicarbonate into most compartments of body - including the central nervous system (CNS), (through the blood-brain barrier), joints, solid tumors, and perhaps even the eyes,areas which are otherwise difficult to penetrate (Sugar/glucose is a universal requirement of all body cells). Similar to INSULIN Potentiation Therapy (IPT), the maple syrup will make cell membranes and tissues more permeable.

Sodium bicarbonate therapy is an ideal concurrent treatment with chemotherapy or radiation:

–   Chemotherapy – bicarbonate protects the body from the toxic chemotherapy chemicals


–   Radiation – bicarbonate protects the kidneys and other body tissues from radioactive damage


For greatest effect in cancer (and kidney disease), you should ALWAYS add Magnesium Chloride Therapy - together,the two make a powerful team.

Side effects of taking sodium bicarbonate

No common side effects when used in the small doses of this therapy

Severe side effects can occur when overdosing sodium bicarbonate - mostly as a consequence of alkalosis. Seek immediate medical attention if any of the following effects occur:

Rash; hives; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; black, tarry stools; headache; irritability; muscle rigidity; nausea; vomiting; weakness.

Italian doctor claims success treating cancer tumors using sodium bicarbonate solution

Italian oncologist Dr. Tullio Simoncini claims success treating cancer tumors using sodium bicarbonate solution - either administered directly by injection into a tumor or by selective arteriography (selecting specific arteries through which the solution is administered). According to Dr. Simoncini, cancer therapy should be a strong continuous dose with uninterrupted cycles in a destruction work which should last for at least 7-8 days – In general a mass of 2-3-4 centimeters will begin to consistently regress from the third to the fourth day, and collapses from the fourth to the fifth”.

However, Dr. Simoncini points out that, “Sodium bicarbonate administered orally, via aerosol or intravenously can achieve positive results only in some tumors, while others, such as the serious ones of the brain or the bones, remain unaffected by the treatment.”- His website states that DIY home treatment is possible, If the cancer is limited within the organs (not infiltrated into the confined tissue). E.g. it is successful in the oral cavity, oesophagus/throat, stomach, intestine, rectum. It is also possible in the case of skin cancer like melanoma, but not skin tumors.

"Over acidification of the bodyleads to the development of chronic yeast and fungal infections and ultimately cancer.”

- Dr. Tullio Simoncini


Dr. Simoncini belives it is the anti-fungal and NOT the alkalization effect of the bicarbonate that causes cancer cell death - The fundamental theory behind this treatment lies in the fact that, despite a number of variable factors, the formation and spreading of tumors is simply the result of the presence of a fungus.” Solid tumor fungal infections are powerful, resist attack and adapt quite readily to pharmaceutical anti-fungal drugs, but Dr. Simoncini says that sodium bicarbonate works so quickly against cancer cells, that they do not have time to become resistant .
