Dr. Tullio Simoncini
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.[i] 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. [ii]
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.[iii]
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
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.
pH: What does it
mean? pH is the abbreviation for potential hydrogen. The pH
of any solution is the measure of its hydrogen-ion
concentration. The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline
and oxygen rich the fluid is. The lower the pH reading, the
more acidic and oxygen deprived the fluid is. The pH range
is from 0 to 14, with 7.0 being neutral. Anything above 7.0
is alkaline, anything below 7.0 is considered acidic.
Human blood stays
in a very narrow pH range right around ( 7.35 - 7.45 ).
Below or above this range means symptoms and disease. If
blood pH moves to much below 6.8 or above 7.8, cells stop
functioning and the patient dies. The ideal pH for blood is
A healthy blood
pH without cancer has acid + alkaline balance almost equal.
Actually a healthy body is slightly alkaline measuring
approximately 7.4. This ideal blood 7.4 pH measurement means
it is just slightly more alkaline than acid.
The pH in the human
digestive tract varies greatly (see Human
Digestive Tract pH Range Chart on the
left side). The pH of saliva is usually between
6.5 - 7.5. After we chew and swallow food it
then enters the fundic or upper portion of the
stomach which has a pH between 4.0 - 6.5. This
is where "predigestion" occurs while the lower
portion of the stomach is secreting hydrochloric
acid (HCI) and pepsin until it reaches a pH
between 1.5 - 4.0. After the food mixes with
these juices it then enters the duodenum (small
intestine) where the pH changes to 7.0 - 8.5.
This is where 90% of the absorption of nutrients
is taken in by the body while the waste products
are passed out through the colon (pH 4.0 - 7.0).
you have a health problem, most likely you are
acidic. Research shows that unless the body's pH
level is slightly alkaline, the body cannot heal
itself. So, no matter what type of modality you
choose to use to take care of your health
problem, it won't be as effective until the pH
level is up. If your body's pH is not balanced,
you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins,
minerals and food supplements. Your body pH
Total healing of chronic illness only takes
place when and if the blood is restored to a
normal, slightly alkaline pH.
An Imbalance In
the bodyís pH may lead to serious health concerns,
Bladder and kidney concerns.
Acceleration of free radical damage.
Structural system weakness, including brittle bones, hip
fractures and joint discomfort
Stressed liver function
Slow digestion and elimination
The body has to
have a balanced pH like most living things on earth or it
does not function correctly. The alkaline level is very
important because research has already proven that disease
cannot survive in an alkaline state and yet they thrive in
an acidic environment.
The truth is
everyone has different nutrient requirements, but we all
share one thing in common - we need to have alkaline blood
to stay healthy.
An acidic balance
will: decrease the body's ability to absorb minerals and
other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the
cells, decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells,
decrease it's ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor
cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and
An acidic pH can
occur from, an acid
forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions
or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other
nutrients. The body will try to compensate for acidic pH by
using alkaline minerals. If the diet does not contain enough
minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells
There are two
factors that are ALWAYS present with cancer no matter what
else may be present. Those two factors are Acid pH and Lack
of Oxygen. Can we manipulate those two factors that always
have to be present for cancer to develop and by doing so may
help reverse the cancer? If so, we need to learn how to
manipulate those two factors.
Cancer needs an
acid and low oxygen environment to survive and flourish
within. Terminal cancer patients are around 1000 times more
acidic than normal healthy people. The vast majority of
terminal cancer patients possess a very low body pH. Why?
In the absence of
oxygen, glucose undergoes fermentation to lactic acid. This
causes the pH of the cell to drop from between 7.3 to 7.2
down to 7 and later to 6.5 in more advanced stages of cancer
and in metastases the pH drops to 6.0 and even 5.7 or lower.
Our bodies simply can not fight disease if our body pH is
not properly balanced.
here are four representations chemists use for
molecular oxygen. In colored molecular models,
oxygen is traditionally shown in red.
The normal human
cell has a lot of molecular oxygen and a slightly alkaline
pH. The cancer cell has an acid pH and lack of oxygen.
Cancer cells cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment.
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. Again, the higher the pH reading, the more alkaline
and oxygen rich the fluid is. Cancer and all diseases hate
oxygen / pH balance. The proper alkalinity pH of the blood (
7.35 - 7.45 ) is critical for the overall health of the
body. In other words... alkalize or die.
Baking Soda and pH Levels
-The Trojan Horse
Remember that the
pH number is an exponent number of 10; therefore, a small
difference in pH translates to a big difference in the
number of oxygen or OH-ions. A difference of 1 in a pH value
means ten times the difference in the number of OH-ions, a
difference of 2 means one hundred times the difference in
the number of OH-ions. In other words, blood with a pH value
of 7.45 contains 64.9% more oxygen than blood with a pH
value of 7.30.
Blood cells have a negative charge on the
outside and a positive
this is what keeps them healthy and far apart
from each other. However, when your body is
over-acidic, the acid strips your blood of it's
negative charge. Your blood cells no longer have
the same repelling force and clump together like

Fact: If your
body's pH is not balanced, you cannot effectively assimilate
vitamins, minerals and food supplements. Also, mucus on the
small intestine can block your body from vitamin and mineral
