Treating Cancer & Destroying Tumors with Baking Soda

Is Cancer “Just a Fungus”?

Copyright © August 2007 Healing Cancer Naturally
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 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.).

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, "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).

A note re skin cancer

According to a statement by Dr. Simoncini, the baking soda apparently is rather ineffective for skin cancer. He recommends instead to paint on red iodine tincture/solution (another anti-fungal agent used by Dr. Simoncini) in a certain rhythm until the cancer is shed, together with "feeding the skin with a special thermal bath". .

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.

Videos: interview with Dr. Simoncini and cancer patients treated by his method

An interesting interview with Dr. Simoncini can be seen on and . The latter site also features a number of impressive interviews with cancer patients incl. a case of melanoma treated by Dr. Simoncini’s method. (For a different way someone healed himself of (actually “terminal” malignant melanoma), see this herbal cancer cure testimonial. Also compare Oil of cloves and skin cancer.)

The price Dr. Simoncini is paying

In an interview he gave to Doug Kaufmann, Dr. Simoncini was asked how he happened upon his discoveries and resulting treatment approach and very movingly, he recounted how in the pediatric oncological ward he was working in, he saw all these children dying under the standard oncological care of chemotherapy and radiation he had been trained to administer. He prayed to God to please show him a way to help those unfortunate ones, and then was led to his discoveries. As probably all physicians who developed a cancer treatment of their own (see History of Alternative Cancer Treatments), Dr. Simoncini was made to pay for his initiative by having his livelihood, i.e. his license revoked. To put this into perspective, you have to know that oncology is extremely lucrative and among the highest-paying branches of medicine ... Hats off to Dr. Simoncini since precious few are those who will risk their means of support or standard of living for what they believe in.

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.

Also see or do a search for more information. Additionally you may find valuable background information in a yahoo group devoted to the subject of curing cancer with baking soda according to the Simoncini protocol:

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.”
