The following text is an excerpt from the excellent book “Cancer Step Out of the Box” by Ty Bollinger. Reproduced here, with his kind permission.
Despite the fact that I disagree with the underlying premise of this treatment ( i.e., that cancer is a fungus), I must include it in this chapter, since there have been multitudes of cancer patients that have been completely cured using this protocol. Some of this information comes from Vicente Estoque, and I thank him for his research.
“I can say with hand on heart, that it is essential to get your body PH up to help you fight cancer. Bicarbonate of soda is an ideal medium to do so. I try to drink a pint of water with one or two spoons desolved in it every day. It certainly helps.”
Dr. Tullio Simoncini is a Roman doctor who has a unique approach to treating cancer: he uses sodium bicarbonate, a chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Of course, you may have long forgotten high school chemistry, and you may not be familiar with sodium bicarbonate . . . but I’ll bet you’ve heard of baking soda!
Baking soda is commonly used as an antacid for short-term relief of an upset stomach, to correct acidosis in kidney disorders, to “alkalinize” urine during bladder infections, and to minimize uric acid crystallization during gout treatment. But according to Simoncini, sodium bicarbonate is unstoppably effective when it comes to cancer tissues. Simoncini’s baking soda treatment is based on the theory that “cancer is a fungus,” which is also the title of his book. While I disagree with his premise, namely that cancer is a fungus, he certainly has had excellent success with this protocol.
Perhaps the success is due to the fact that baking soda floods the cancer cells with a shockwave of alkalinity and oxygen, thus reversing the hypoxia which is always associated with cancerous tissue. Or perhaps it works because a comparison of cancer tissue with healthy tissue indicates that cancerous tissue always has a much higher concentration of toxic chemicals and pesticides than normal tissue, and sodium bicarbonate possesses the property of absorbing heavy metals, dioxins, and furans. Perhaps it’s a combination of the two. Or perhaps there is a fungal link to cancer. In any event, regardless of the cancer kill mechanism, there is no doubt that thousands of cancer patients credit Simoncini’s sodium bicarbonate treatment with saving their lives.
The most important side effects of this treatment are thirst and weakness, unlike traditional treatments such as chemotherapy. According to Dr. Simoncini, “ Chemotherapy, in fact, destroys everything. It is a given fact that it dramatically exhausts the cells of the marrow and of the blood, thus allowing a greater spreading of the infection. It irreversibly intoxicates the liver, thus preventing it from building new elements of defense, and it mercilessly knocks out nerve cells, thus weakening the organism’s reactive capabilities and delivering it to the invaders. This is mainly because it is not clear how it affects the colonies, and because by strongly debilitating the organism such intervention makes the invasion of the mycetes faster and more ferocious .”
Dr. Simoncini believes that the best way to try to eliminate a tumor is to bring it into contact with sodium bicarbonate, as closely as possible, using oral administration for the digestive tract, enemas for the rectum, douching for the vagina and uterus, intravenous injection for the lung and the brain, and inhalation for the upper airways. Breasts, lymph nodes and subcutaneous lumps can be treated with local perfusions. The internal organs can be treated by locating suitable catheters in the arteries (of the liver, pancreas, prostate, and limbs) or in the cavities (of the pleura or peritoneum). Simoncini theorizes that the sodium bicarbonate destroys the fungal colonies at the heart of cancerous tumors.
He also has reported on cases of brain tumors (both primary and metastatic) that stop growing after therapy with a 5% sodium bicarbonate solution. He also reports success with prostate cancer, intestinal cancer, stomach cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, cancer of the spleen, liver cancer, lung cancer, oropharyngeal cancer, peritoneal carcinosis, pancreatic cancer, and other cancers.
According to Dr. Simoncini, this protocol can be self-applied in certain types of cancer (oral, esophagal, stomach, rectal, intestinal) if the cancer is limited to the organ and has not metastasized. However, he does recommend the supervision of a doctor in these cases. In all other cases, the assistance of a doctor is mandatory to administer the infusions, etc.
There are numerous correlations and similarities between cancer and fungal infections. There are 400,000 species of fungi, out of which 400 are pathogens. In 1990, Elizabeth Moore-Landecker revealed fungi and their mycotoxins are able to cause genetic variations and mutations. The fact that mycotoxins (fungal toxins) can cause cancer is not up for grabs.
The American Cancer Society Textbook of Clinical Oncology states, “ Mycotoxins are genotoxic carcinogens, and exposure begins in utero and in mother’s milk, continuing throughout life; these conditions favor the occurrence of disease. ”
Dr. Doug Kaufman has noted many similarities between cancer and fungus. Let’s have a look at some fascinating facts which he points out:
Both cancer cells and fungi can metabolize nutrients anaerobically (without oxygen)
Both cancer cells and fungi must have sugar in order to survive and will die in the absence of sugar
Both cancer cells and fungi produce lactic acid
Both cancer cells and fungi can be impacted by antifungal medicines
In his book, The Germ that Causes Cancer , in total agreement with Dr. Simoncini, Kaufman hypothesizes that cancer is a deep-rooted fungal infection that our immune system fails to recognize. He also believes that antibiotics, many of which begin as fungi, can contribute to the development of cancer. He hypothesizes that perhaps many cases of cancer are actually misdiagnosed and are in reality fungal infections or overgrowths. Fungal infections not only can be extremely contagious, but they also go hand in hand with leukemia ( every oncologist knows this). For example, in 1999, Dr. Meinolf Karthaus watched three different children with “leukemia” suddenly go into remission upon receiving a triple antifungal drug cocktail for their secondary fungal infections.
According to Dr. Simoncini, “My methods have cured people for 20 years. Many of my patients recovered completely from cancer, even in cases where official oncology had given up.” So, what is his cure rate? Dr. Simoncini gives the following statistics: “If the fungi are sensitive to the sodium bicarbonate solutions and the tumor size is below 3 cm, the percentage will be around 90%, in terminal cases where the patient is in reasonably good condition it is 50%.”
Dr. Simoncini has a heart that really loves people, and his desire is to cure everyone from cancer. His intentions are quite noble – he is a man of honor and integrity. I believe it is fitting to conclude this section with a quote from Dr. Simoncini: “My deep wish is to make this therapy available to all humanity. It is my firm hope that soon, the fundamental role of fungi in the development of neoplastic disease is acknowledged, so that it is possible to find, with the help of all existing forces of the health establishment, those anti-mycotic drugs and those systems of therapy that can quickly defeat, without damage and suffering, a disease that brings so much devastation to humanity.”
