What?? Baking Soda and Maple Syrup??
Remember Dr. Tullio Simoncini and his treatment of cancer as a fungus?
If not, you can reread an article called "Cancer Is A Fungus" in my August
2, 2007 newsletter. It's at:
If you recall, I quoted several holistic physicians in that article including
Dr. Mark Sircus. I interviewed Dr. Sircus for my web talk radio show a couple
of weeks ago. We got to comparing notes. It seems we had both received a copy
of the same magazine article from one of my readers. The article was entitled
"Country Doctor Cures Cancer -- With Baking Soda & Maple Syrup!" There was no
date on the article, but it was a syndicated article from Weekly World News
written by George Sanford. The location (of all places) was Asheville, North
Carolina, where I live.
The story told of Jim Kelmun, a 75-year old former truck driver and his success
in helping people heal cancer using -- you guessed it -- baking soda and maple
syrup. Seein' as how I'm a 76-year old former airplane driver who has helped a
couple thousand people recover from cancer, I figured ol' Jim from Asheville and
I had a lot in common and I better pass on his story (and Dr. Mark's reaction to
it) to you, my loyal readers, and see what you think.
First, here's a short quote from the story, so you get the drift.
"'There's not a tumor on God's green Earth that can't be licked with a little
baking soda and maple syrup!'
That's the astonishing claim of controversial folk healer Jim Kelmun -- who says
his simple home remedy can stop and reverse the growth of deadly cancers.
[Kelmun]...has no medical degree and authorities are demanding that he stop
dispensing his 'wonder drug' -- or face a prison sentence.
But his loyal patients swear by the man they fondly call 'Dr. Jim' -- and say he's
a miracle worker.
'Dr Jim cured me of lung cancer,' declares farmer Ian Rodhouse, 64. 'Those other
doctors told me I was a goner ahd had less than six months to live.'
'But the doc put me on his mixture -- and in a couple of months, the cancer was
gone. It didn't even show up on X-rays.'
The gentle, silver-haired grandfather -- who has been preparing home remedies since
1954 -- says he first hit upon the miracle cure in the mid-1970's, when he was
treating a family plagued by breast cancer.
'There were five sisters in the family and all of them passed away from the big C
by age 50 -- except one,' he recalls.
'I asked if there was anything different in her diet. She told me she was partial
to sipping maple syrup and baking soda.
'I figured, let me try it out on some of my other patients.'
Since then, 'Dr. Jim' has dispensed his mixture to more than 200 patients diagnosed
with terminal cancer. Amazingly, he claims that of that number, 185 lived at least
15 more years -- and nearly half enjoyed a complete remission of their disease."
Well, you get the idea. When Dr. Sircus and I discussed this subject, it was obvious
that the "goofy" article on "Dr. Jim" had made him put on his thinking cap (which is
quite well worn -- Dr. Mark is one of the "thinkingest" docs I know). In fact, he
sent me an article he had written on the subject that should interest any of you
You may recall that Dr. Sircus has a regimen for treating cancer which includes
magnesium chloride, iodine, selenium and alpha lipoic acid. After reading of Dr.
Simoncini's work, he added baking soda to his regimen. But even Dr. Simoncini
recognized the limitations of his own baking soda treatment. Here's a quote from Dr. Simoncini:
"The therapeutic treatment of bicarbonate salts [baking soda] can be administered
orally, through aerosol, intravenously and through catheter for direct targeting of
tumors...[but it] can achieve positive results only in some tumors, while others -
such as the serious ones of the brain or the bones - remain unaffected by the treatment."
Dr. Mark's thinking led him to an interesting hypothesis. What if, he said, baking
soda and maple syrup worked just like IPT (Insulin Potentiated Therapy)? Here are
some quotes from his article:
"IPT treatment consists of giving doses of insulin to a fasting patient sufficient
to lower blood sugar into the 50 mg/dl. Then they inject lower doses of toxic chemo
drugs [when the cancer cell] receptors are more sensitive and take on medications more
rapidly and in higher amounts.
The bicarbonate/maple syrup treatment works in reverse to IPT. Dr. Tullio Simoncini
acknowledges that cancer cells gobble up sugar so when you encourage the intake of
sugar it's like sending in a Trojan horse. The sugar is not going to encourage the
growth of the cancer colonies because the baking soda is going to kill the cells
before they have a chance to grow.
The treatment is a combination of pure, 100% maple syrup [bulk Grade B from the health
food store] and baking soda and was first reported on the Cancer Tutor site. When
mixed and heated together, the maple syrup and baking soda bind together. The maple
syrup targets cancer cells (which consume 15 times more glucose than normal cells)
and the baking soda, which is dragged into the cancer cell by the maple syrup,
being very alkaline forces a rapid shift in pH killing the cell.
The actual formula is to mix one part baking soda with three parts (pure, 100%) maple
syrup in a small saucepan. Stir briskly and heat the mixture for 5 minutes. Take one
teaspoon daily is what is suggested by Cancer Tutor but one could probably do this
several times a day."
In summary, Dr. Sircus says:
"The maple syrup apparently enables and increases penetration of bicarbonate into all
compartments of the body, even those which are difficult or impossible to penetrate by
other means. These compartments include the central nervous system (CNS), through the
blood-brain barrier, joints, solid tumors, and perhaps even the eyes. IPT makes cell
membranes more permeable, and increases uptake of drugs into cells. The maple syrup
will make tissues more permeable, too. It will transport the bicarbonate across the
blood-brain barrier and every other barrier in the body for sugar is universally needed
by all cells in the body...Both IPT and bicarbonate/maple syrup treatments use the rabid
growth mechanisms of cancer cells against them."
There you have it, folks. Can you imagine this mixture harming you? Two or three
teaspoons a day? Would I try it? You bet. It meets all my criteria: simple, effective,
inexpensive and available anywhere in the world.
Incidentally, Dr. Sircus has moved baking soda/maple syrup up to Number Three in his
regimen -- right behind magnesium chloride and iodine.
Thanks, Dr. Sircus, for your magnificently open mind and flexibility in applying your
knowledge to new ideas. Well, according to Jim Kelmun, it's no new idea -- just another
suppressed cancer treatment that works.
Get The Full Story On Protocel/Cancell
Starting Monday afternoon, March 17th, you'll be able to listen to a couple of interviews
with terminal cancer survivors on my Web Talk Radio show. The ladies I interviewed are Elaine Hulliberger and Elonna McKibben. Both of these ladies used
nothing but Protocel (formerly called CanCell) for their recovery. I urge you to listen to them to get
the first hand information. I'll give you a short summary here, but don't miss the
The best way for you to get familiar with this product (in addition, of course, to
my interviews) is to explore two web sites:
Here you will find a wonderful account of how Protocel came about written by the son
of Jim Sheridan, the chemist who formulated it some 35 years ago. There is other
information there, too. For example, they give you Elonna McKibben's complete
story (the interview with her covers part of it). They also have an extract from
the e-book by Tanya Pierce (see below) on how to take Protocel.
This is the web site of Tanya Harter Pierce, author of "Outsmart Your Cancer." Her
book is a wonderfully complete book on alternative approaches to healing cancer.
If you are interested in Protocel, Tanya has put up on her site an excerpt of her
book. It is the very detailed portion she wrote on Protocel. It is an e-book which
you can download for $9.95. It is the most complete account I've seen on what NOT
to take with Protocel as well as how to take it, case studies and lots of other
information about its history and efficacy.
At this web site, you can buy another book just published by Pam Hoeppner, a breast
cancer survivor who used Protocel as her primary healing substance. Her book is called "The Breast Stays Put." I was going to
mention Pam's book and web site on the interview with Elonna McKibben, but we ran
out of time. I haven't had a chance to read it, but Elonna said it was great. I
know I enjoyed her web site -- especially the "grins and giggles" page.
Finally, the best source for Protocel, which we mention a couple of times in the
interviews is Renewal and Wellness. You can reach them at (866) 776-8623 or order
through their web site, which is: www.webnd.com
If you have questions about Protocel, the best option I know of is to call Elonna
McKibben. I give you her web site on the interview, but here it is in writing,
which is easier: www.ElonnaMcKibben.com
She is in the process of moving it to a new server, but her phone number and e-mail
address are there now. She does not have free long distance, so if she is on the
phone when you call, you will have to call her again. Like me, she prefers phone
calls to e-mails. E-mails take too long to answer and they pile up. Besides, it
is always helpful to "interact" with the person calling and the phone is far superior
for that. Elonna does not charge for these calls.
In summary, you might want to try the baking soda/maple syrup treatment while you're
waiting for your Protocel to arrive...or possibly you won't need the Protocel --
if my prayers for you work.
DAILY ADVANTAGE AND THE "NIACIN FLUSH"
A couple of weeks ago, I compared notes with a reader who had experienced the same
thing I had with the new formulation of Daily Advantage (see Chapter 3 of my book
for the old formula) which Dr. David Williams has put together. We ordered some
of it about two months ago. Immediately, I noticed an unusual "flush" of warmth
within a few minutes after taking it. It lasted for 10 or 15 minutes. it felt
just like the "niacin flush" I mention in my book in the section in Chapter 5
which I call "Feel Better Fast!"
The reader I was talking to had experienced the same effect. I told him that I
had reported it to the people at the distributor, Mountain Home Nutritionals in
West Virginia. They didn't seem at all alarmed by it, but the person I talked
to said they had received similar calls and she took my name and address.
The actual Niacin content of these capsules, according to the list of ingredients
on the box, went up only 4 mg -- from 126 mg to 130 mg -- in the new formula. So,
it could be a different supplier, different form -- who knows? I just thought I
should let you know in case you experience something similar. The solution for
me -- and the gentleman I talked to -- is simply to follow the instructions on
the box and take the capsules with food. That seems to have solved the "problem"
for both of us.
VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS -- GOOD OR BAD?
Dr. Mercola published an article recently which showed graphically how the Big
Pharma "pimps" are trying to discredit any form of natural treatments. Read this
article, but be sure to read Dr. Mercola's comment on it and some of the comments
by his readers. Here's the link to the article:
BURNING SALT WATER -- AMAZING!
This YouTube link has been circulating around the e-mail forwarding folks for at
least a couple of weeks now. If you haven't seen it, though, it is quite interesting.
It looks like just another "revolutionary" discovery that will be swept under the rug
because it doesn't generate enough income for the industries involved. Take a look at:
OK, enough for this time. I'll be back in April with another newsletter.
And don't forget my bribe. Send me your story about your cancer experience
-- good, bad or neutral -- and I'll send you a free copy of my e-book "Cancer
