I am not yet familiar enough with the baking soda idea, but am intrigued and looking into it. I think it would be helpful provided that a proper grade is chosen Right now, I think I would start off with an inositol/IP6 regimen. I happen to be working closely with a distributor and have been interviewing locals who report amazing success in ridding cancer and tumors in a very short period of time. However, while inositol/IP6 such as found in a product called Cell Forte, does wonders in ridding tumors and cancers, it does not really address the underlying causes. For that reason, I would also turn to a very healthy diet of mostly raw vegetable and fruits, cleansing and detox, exercise, pure water, clean air if possible and wise lifestyle choices that enhance the immune system (exercise and a bit of daily sunshine, for example) and supplementation with things known to fight cancer and boost the immune system. Many things will rid the body of cancer to a greater or lesser degree of success. Building and maintaining a strong immune response is the best way to insure that cancer is defeated and remains defeated.
The remedy that I have written about and which is the main topic of my book "Cancer's Natural Enemy"("oleander soup) or the nutritional supplement based on that remedy (OPC) available from South Africa, is the strongest immune booster I know of. In European studies in 1986-87 it was shown to have six times the immune stimulating activity of the strongest patented immune stimulators. You can make it at home for only pennies; however, oleander is highly toxic in raw form and must be handled and prepared with care. Once properly boiled, condensed and strained it is magical.
If you check my profile and go to the bottom and select the posts I have made, find the one on "Modern Medicine versus Nature in Treating Cancer" (or scroll down the posts here in this forum or in the Cancer Support forum until you find it. It contains a description of what we know about cancer (or what I think we know) as well as an outline for a suggested natural protocol to address each area. I will soon be adding inositol/IP6 as a very important element of the protocol.
