When it comes to natural cancer treatment, there is plenty of information available from many sources. Some of these approaches proved to beneficially affect persons with cancer, but not many of them have been scientifically investigated. There are however scientific evidences that a slight increase in pH level of the body can help with combating cancer. Several natural remedies have been used for this purpose, but the most documented is sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in combination with maple syrup or honey.
Why pH Is Important for Cancer Cells
The acidity of the body fluids and tissues is expressed as pH level. The lower pH – the more acidity there is in the body, and the higher pH – the more alkaline bodily fluids and tissues are. In general, our cells do not like living in the environment of increased acidity, and many scientists claim that this can be the cause of many types of cancer. Over-acidity increases oxidation of cellular components and brakes many normal processes inside the cells.
How Baking Soda and Maple Syrup Can Help?
In order to increase pH in the body, Mr. Jim Kelmun, a well-known folk healer has developed a simple protocol to help cure cancer using baking soda and maple syrup. Baking soda is the active ingredient which increases alkalinity and maple syrup is used to deliver the baking soda to the cancer cells. Namely, cancer cells have a very fast metabolism and use much more sugar than healthy cells.
The Jim Kelmun Protocol
For preparation of this remedy, you will need to buy Grade B maple syrup and baking soda. Put one teaspoon of baking soda and three teaspoons of maple syrup in a non-aluminum saucepan and heat it for 5 minutes with mixing it. Do not let the mixture boil, just warm it up so the ingredients can blend better. Kelmun says that aluminum is harmful for human health in general, especially for patients with cancer, and he strongly suggests that any cookware containing aluminum should be avoided.
Alternatively, honey can be used instead of maple syrup, but without warming up the mixture.
It is recommended to take 2 – 4 teaspoons of the mixture daily, with at least 20 minutes gaps between. The mixture should not be taken for more than 6 weeks without interruption. After taking the mixture, physical activity should be avoided for an hour because it would use up all the sugar and prevent the baking soda from entering cancer cells.
