It's one teaspoon of baking soda to one cup of water to drink one half hour before your meals. One tablespoon per cup of water would be way too dangerous, especially for older people.
I was diognosed with stage three breast cancer that was also in my lymph nodes in 2011. After much research I figured I probably had a better chance with healthy alternatives than big pharma.
phcurescancer is a lovely site by a gentleman who cured his own cancer using bicarbonate soda and the lump in my breast did go from 80mm across down to 70mm in the two weeks I pushed my ph into the high 7s. However this is not a good thing to do long term and bi carb not the best way to do it. Be aware that mixing bi carb with citrus acid (vit c) chemically combines to create carbon dioxide, pure poison. Good info on http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XuFGobY4dUI.
One of the best ways is diet and drinking alkalising greens. Coral calcium is also excellent and a much better balance of essential minerals. I test my pee regularly and a ph in the 6.5-7 is good from what I understand. If you are reading 7.3 or higher then your body is probably too alkaline and is trying to get rid of excess. If for some reason I've dropped under 6.5 then I will take a quarter to a half teaspoon of bi carb which just boosts things up nicely but I rarely have to do that now.
I'm sure through diet and lifestyle changes it is possible to help the body get rid of most cancers. I had some very positive results and felt fantastic health and energy wise. Once I started working I got a bit slack and by the end of 2013 the lump in my breast had gotten large again and some lymph nodes were enlarged. So this year I started using MMS with MSM or DMSO. Cheap. Very definite results. The tumer is half the size it was in two months and the lymph nodes are getting smaller. I found I could only use very small amounts or I got pretty full on detox effects. In a couple of months I'm hoping for an all clear and I will put together a more detailed report and put it out there.
So don't panic. research. There's a huge amount of very good information out there. Keep an open mind and a healthy amount of scepticsism. It's a wonderful world and we are amazing beings so I hope all goes well.
