Ph Therapy for Leukemia?

Posted by J on 01/07/2008

I do leukemia research for a very young relative. I have learned of remarkable success in cancer by an Italian oncologist using ph therapy but since his protocol required direct access to the tumor site it has scant value for leukemia where the difficult to access porgenator site is in the bone marrow. Systemic high ph would work but the body so regulates it that it is unlikely to achieve levels needed. Is there some way to overcome the body's regulation harmlessly. The body regulates fever, etc.,etc. yet these are overcome. Please help. THANKS.

Dear J:There was a couple of cases I know personally where leukemia was help with raising pH. One case I had from Australia who went into remission from Leukemia, where the scheduled chemotherapy was to take place. The blood pH needs not be raise, but when we take sufficient alkalinity, the biochemical makeup of the body is changed. The leukemia remedy that one case use was 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon of citric acid in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. It takes about 3 or 4 weeks to get the body's pH BUFFERS sufficient level where the body can handle or raise its immune system. Hence, while the urinary alkalinity is raise the blood pH pretty much stays within normal range the only differences is that pH acid spikes don't occur and this is where the body can be sufficiently "alkalinity" from more pH buffers take place in allowing the body's immune system to be high enough where the white blood cells can digest the excess leukemia buildup in the body. The remedy that was mentioned was an old one, a newer remedy I think that might help raise the body's buffering system necessary to support the immune system is 1/2 teaspoon of sodium citrate plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate in 1/2 glass of water taken at least twice (preferably) three times a day. Once this is taken for about a month whichever remedy mentioned, the remedy is reduced to about 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid in 1/2 glass of water. It is the alkalinity buffer which prevents the acid pH spikes, while it is true the body's homeostasis is excellent, it KNOWS that the body is alkaline, from the changes in biochemical portions in the body and the alkalinity nature of the urine pH is also reflected. Hence, we need not raise the pH in the blood, raise in the urine, and get sufficient alkaline pH buffers is all that is needed.' Mind you this is a simple leukemia remedy that I found to be helpful, when the alkalinity is raised, the oxygen levels in the blood goes up, the carbonic acid waste gas carbon dioxide is reduced, and the nitric oxide levels in the body is raised (it degrades needlessly if there is LACK of alkaline pH buffers). Hence to further raise the oxygen, I believe adding 3-5 drops of 3% H2O2 food grade to the alkaline remedy twice a day. The H2O2 also oxidizes toxins by oxidation and this may also reduce unnecessary toxic burden which aids in the body's immune system. A much simpler remedy of course, if supplements can't be found is 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken three times a day. One other case of cancer that was helped was simply adding 1 drop of clove oil in 1/2 or 1 glass of water three times a day. After adding this, it is stirred and then drink. However, the clove oil works best when added with the baking soda. Clove oil is the single most powerful antioxidant on the ORAC scale. Hope this info helps!

My mom was diagnosed with AML two weeks ago. She just finished her first round of chemotherapy April 2, 2012. Even if she is not hungry she eats anyone, she eats about two bowls of lentils a day. This is the third website I have found stating baking soda, lemon juice, and water help patients with leukemia. My only question is won't the sodium bicarbonate found in the baking soda interfere with her chemotherapy? What other suggestions do you have? Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you.

Carolina, sodium bicarbonate is a natural mineral produced by the pancreas for digestive and buffering purposes. But in cases of disease, especially cancer, the body produces more acid than the body can buffer, leading to acidosis and the impossibility of cure, unless one of course adds extra baking soda to the body. Also take extra Cal/Mag supplement for minerals and buffering. And Vit-C is also powerful anti-cancer. Most or all vit/min do not have negative reactions w/ pharmaceutical meds (including chemo drugs), moreover they help them to work better by augmenting metabolism. Most naturopathic doctors ALWAYS recommend supplementing w/ high quality health food brand multivitamin/min w/ super-foods, enzymes etc. Particularly in disease states. The bigger the profile the better. I would have her take two multi's w/ every meal.

Hope this helps and good luck.
