Baking soda can help, and I have had some positive reports, but Vernal I have to tell you that Simoncini is a self-promoter whose successs are far less than what he claims, but whose book sales and talk show appearances are doing quite nicely - the same as are any other number of people who claim they have found a unique cause and/or cure for cancer.
I have done more than a bit of research into the Italian doctor (where anyone with enough money can buy a diploma) who refuses to reveal where he went to school and who fled Italy after convictions for manslaughter and fraud.
I know that alternative practioners have a history of being persecuted and lied about, but I have also communicated with people who have seen the slick Doctor and there reports are less than kind.
I am not sure what all you have done, but I would suggest cleansing and a fast, followed by healthy and nutritious diet that is mostly raw and which includes a fasting day each week, plenty of sunshine on the skin and indirectly in the eyes (and vitamin D3 of 5000 units per day when you cannot get outside), mild to moderate exercise as you are able, removal of all chemical toxins in your home and workplace, EFT and addressing any emotional stress or past trauma, and making sure you are not deficient in any vital nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, trace minerals and especially iodine and selenium.
Take a look at my suggested anti-cancer protocol:
If you do not have cancer you do not need to do all the things or as much, but there is some good basic advice there which could benefit just about anyone.
For specific problems, you might also take a look at:
But please do not go overboard and just try to take gobs of supplements. First try the general approach and always keep in mind good health starts with a good foundation. Without it, all the supplements in the world may be of no avail.
Such an approach will help correct a great many problems.
I recommend Budwig very highly, but I disagree with the zeolots who think you cannot combine it.
If you are on a budget, as many of us are, I will note that you can make your own oleander extract for mere pennies and that the common spice curcumin (turmeric) is very potent against a wide variety of cancers in doses of around 3000 mg per day combined with 10 mg of bioperine or else common ground black pepper and perhaps a bit of coconut oil.
Regardless of what else you do, practice a healthy mostly raw diet combined with Budwigs flaxseed/cottage cheese, get plenty of sunshine and fresh air, and use EFT and other techniques (such as yoga) to address emotional issues and stress.
Liver cleansing and protecting and regenerating the liver is a must - and the items needed to do so are pretty inexpensive. You can detox yourself from metals with cilantro and chlorella. Unyquity here at CZ makes a wonderful cayenne pepper tincture that I use daily and it costs but a pittance.
A diet where you have one day a week of fasting will help a lot, particularly if you alternate fasting days of water only, then dark grapes (concord are probably best) WITH grapeseeds (eat as many as you like but nothing else but water on the fasting day, and a fasting day of only juiced vegetables.
Trapper has an awesome potassium iodine he makes (SSKI) which should be combined with selenium (methylselenocysteine is the best form for fighting cancer). I urge anyone with cancer to include that in their protocol.
The habanero pepper, oil and crushed garlic on healthy bread suggested by Kelly Eidom is also very affordable.
I realize that all the items I suggest in my protocol can add up - though they are a relative pittance compared to mainstream drugs and treatment, but you can do many very effective things and stay within a fairly small budget.
Ultimately, it may be a question of can you NOT afford to do what you need to beat and prevent cancer and regain optimum health.
I pretty agree with Paul Winters and MadArtist (and gave both of them good votes) - baking soda is only effective for cancers from the throat through the digestive system and to the rectum.
All the best,
