Treating Cancer & Destroying Tumors w/ Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate): Is Cancer “Just a Fungus”?

by Healing Cancer Naturally © August 2007 & January 2009

An Italian oncologist, Dr. Tullio Simoncini, has devised a simple, very inexpensive and apparently frequently effective cancer treatment centered around the use of sodium bicarbonate, taken orally or by infusion. This baking soda treatment is based on the revolutionary thesis that “Cancer Is a Fungus” (also the title of Dr. Simoncini’s book). Sodium bicarbonate administered directly on the neoplastic masses is said to destroy the fungal colonies lying at the “heart” of the tumor. Additionally, according to Dr. Tullio Simoncini, this baking soda treatment could even be self-applied in certain types of cancer, i.e. if the cancer is limited to the organ (not infiltrating the confined [probably meaning “surrounding/adjacent”] tissue, for example in the oral cavity, oesophagus, stomach, intestine, rectum. The supervision of a doctor, however, is indicated. In all other cases the assistance of a doctor is mandatory (to administer the infusions etc.).

On success rates and application of sodium bicarbonate therapy

Dr. Simoncini reports on cases of brain tumors (“both primary and metastatic in general regress or stop growing after therapy with sodium bicarbonate at five per cent solution”), intestinal cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, cancer of the spleen, liver cancer, lung cancer, oropharyngeal cancer (mouth, tongue, palate, pharynx), peritoneal carcinosis, pleura tumor (“primary or secondary pleuric neoplasias are amongst the easiest to treat with the therapy method”), prostate tumor, stomach cancer (“one of the tumors that are easiest to treat because of its easily reachable position through the mouth”), tumor of the pancreas and others. This includes successes, sometimes long-term (up to 20 years* when to my knowledge Dr. Simoncini started using this treatment), as well as other less successful experiences and outcomes. Dr. Simoncini gives the following statistics: if the fungi are sensitive to the sodium bicarbonate solutions and the tumour 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%, and for terminal patients it is a small percentage.

And according to Mark Sircus, Ac., OMD, Director of the International Medical Veritas Association, “Dr. Simoncini routinely administers glucose with his IV treatments and this is the best indication for the use of either honey, maple syrup** or black strap molasses** especially for late stage cancer patients whose cells are starving.”

* See for example these excerpts from a lung cancer case featured at Dr. Simoncini’s site “The therapeutic treatment is based on two essential elements: liver detoxification simultaneously with administration of bicarbonate salts orally, through aerosol and intravenously. After about eight months of bloodless and painless therapy, the mass completely disappears. Over one year after the end of the therapy, the x-rays show only a thickening of the inter-lobe separation, which is the result of healing. The patient is still alive some 20 years after the therapy.” Incidentally, the related Country doctor cures cancer – with baking soda & maple syrup also features a case of lung cancer cure attributed to sodium bicarbonate (plus maple syrup)

Videos: Interview with Dr. Simoncini and Melanoma healing

An interesting interview with Dr. Simoncini can be seen on Doug Kaufmann’s site

The same site also features a very impressive before-and-after video showing visual proof of a man with basal cell skin cancer (melanoma) of the skalp who was treated by Dr. Simoncini. His melanoma had grown 1 cm deep into his scalp. After treatment with iodine tincture (another anti-fungal agent used by Dr. Simoncini*) and “feeding the skin with a special thermal bath” the melanoma was healed after just 1 1/2 months.

For a different way someone healed himself of (actually “terminal” malignant melanoma), see this herbal cancer cure testimonial.

* since apparently for skin cancer, Dr. Simoncini says the baking soda is rather ineffective. He recommends to instead paint on red iodine solution in a certain rhythm until the cancer is shed.

Other cancer and/or health-related applications of sodium bicarbonate

Baking soda, in addition to its many time-honoured applications (household and other “clean-up” purposes), is also used in baths and rinses for chelating ionizing radiation and/or killing bacteria.


Since this looks like a promising treatment and fits two of the major ethical criteria of Healing Cancer Naturally (availability to near-everyone due to being inexpensive, low to no toxicity), the reader is encouraged to visit Dr. Simoncini’s site You’ll find much background information and research findings there incl. explanatory videos, a page giving how-to instructions for using sodium bicarbonate, etc. Sodium bicarbonate powder, thanks to its long history of both internal and external use by humans, is available in most any drugstore, supermarket and pharmacy.

Important addendum

This website is about Healing Cancer Holistically since I believe that for true and lasting healing to be achieved on all levels as well as by the same token, to prevent similar or other health crises in the future, it is wisest and best to tackle a cancer and other challenge from several angles. While the dietary/environmental aspects frequently constitute some of the most important ones, the mental/emotional/spiritual ones can also be of major and decisive significance.

I still include “non-holistic” but highly promising approaches such as Dr. Simoncini’s sodium bicarbonate cancer treatment for all those whom they might benefit in the short or long term. That said, in order to avoid cancer, Dr. Simoncini himself advises “a healthy lifestyle, good (organic) food”, taking as little medicine as possible, exercising and paying “much attention to chronic symptoms.”
