Dr. Huber’s intravenous nutrient cancer treatment

Dr. Tullio Simoncini is a medical doctor in Italy who has done more than anyone to explore the uses of the baking soda cancer treatment as an alternative cancer treatment. It is known that cancer creates and favors an acid environment and because of this, Dr. Simoncini and others have used sodium bicarbodate as an alkaline therapeutic agent.

The way that acidity seems to protect cancer is not fully understood.  It seems that cytotoxic T-cells, which may attack cancer cells under normal conditions, are inactivated in an acid extracellular fluid.[1]  Also, the type of acidity that cancer produces, i.e., lactic acid, stimulates vascular endothelial growth factor and angiogenesis.[2]  This is like a highway project, which enables a tumor to build the blood vessels that it needs to bring the nutrients for it to survive.  So the tumor creates an environment in which it can then exist comfortably.

Baking Soda’s Alkalinity Fights Cancer’s Acidity

At a pH of about 10, sodium bicarbonate is an antidote to this acidity.  It can be used clinically in sterile, intravenous form.  This is a liquid, sterile bicarbonate of soda.  The baking soda cancer treatment is well-tolerated, even with frequent repeated dosing.

We will often recommend that some of our cancer patients take ¼ to ½ teaspoonful in water orally a few times per day as an adjunct to our therapies.  This is not suitable for everybody, and may have repercussions in various organ systems if taken to excess.  We are not advising anyone to do this unless they have been a patient at our clinic, and we recommend it to specific individuals.  Also, there is risk of aluminum contamination with some available brands of baking soda, so one must be cautious with this.

An important part of our intravenous therapies against cancer is sterile, pure, intravenous sodium bicarbodate.  This is one of numerous anti-cancer nutrients that we use in our intravenous infusions.

A Concurrence Between Cancer And Candida

Earlier researchers have found a concurrence between cancer and candida.  In Dr. Simoncini’s book, Cancer is a Fungus[3] he notes some similarities between the two.  Primarily, both are intractable diseases, each very hard to get rid of.  Dr. Simoncini notes that each forms a solid mass of low penetrability, unlike the dispersed forms of bacterial and viral infections in the body or body fluids.  Dr. Simoncini notes the problem of surface area in addressing these infections.  Whereas bacterial and viral infections are dispersed in the solutions of bodily compartments, and likewise, antibiotics and other anti-microbials dispersed in the same solutions have access to each microbe.

A solid mass on the other hand, is approached by one of two routes: either the most superficial layer of the outer surface, or by way of any blood vessels that course through it.

In the case of a neoplasm, the approach of approximating the most superficial layer has the effect of challenging the survival of the cancer only enough to induce the genetic changes that make the tumor more resilient to further assault by the same or similar agents.

Therefore, a productive route to the core of the cancer, a more threatening assault on its survival, is by way of the bloodstream which is why IV’s are utilized for the baking soda cancer treatment.

Is Cancer A Fungus? Does Baking Soda Work on Cancer?

As for whether cancer is fundamentally a kind of fungus, the jury is still out.  However, it is useful to know that not only does sodium bicarbonate disrupt the comfortable environment of tumors, but it also has anti-fungal effect.[4]

For the cancer patient, sodium bicarbonate by intravenous infusion, is given by a practitioner who is knowledgeable and experienced in this area, has been helpful to provide an environment that is unwelcoming to cancer.  Therefore we hope that this will become a more commonly accepted practice in cancer treatment.

  1. Does your clinic manage under medical doctors and is baking soda classified as Medical? I’m very interested in coming for medical attention…curious if insurance pick up or patient responsible for 100billings.

  2. I am in search to find people who have successfully been treated with sodium bicarbonate. Is there any chance someone here can put me in contact with anyone that has??

    My father has been diagnosed with bladder cancer and we are leaning towards these treatments, yet he really wants to speak with people who have gone through these treatments to legitimize the process further. My email is below.

    Thank you to anyone who can help.

  3. Hi Suzanne, naturopathic physicians are licensed to practice medicine, and therefore do not work under or over medical doctors, unless they choose to partner together. The naturopathic medical curriculum includes all of the conventional medical doctors’ curriculum plus the naturopathic modalities, so there are more than twice as many courses and more than twice as many classroom hours in naturopathic school than in conventional medical school. The way that a naturopathic physician uses baking soda includes in liquid, sterile form and is administered as medicine.

  4. Hi Michael,

    My mother went to see Dr. Huber last February – she was diagnosed with stage two ductal carcinoma (breast cancer) in November of 2013. She had a lumpectomy in December and then we flew out to Arizona and started here treatments with Dr. Huber in February of 2014. She decided to go with natural treatments and did not get chemo, radiation, or take the pill that was recommended by the conventional doctors (much to their dismay). The treatments lasted for about three months and my mother was very careful to follow Dr. Huber’s food plan completed all of the treatments just as Dr. Huber prescribed.

    After her treatments were complete, she went for a checkup and she confirmed what she already felt – that she was cured of her cancer! She just had her last checkup a few months ago (almost a year after being diagnosed) and she is still cancer free. She is doing so well that her conventional cancer doctor was shocked and said something along the lines of “well I guess you didn’t need radiation, after all we don’t actually know that it is beneficial for fighting cancer.” I was shocked that a conventional doctor actually admitted that!

    I was with her through the whole process and her hair never fell out, she never got sick but she actually had more energy than she ever had in her life. The injections actually made her skin look younger which was pretty amazing and she was very happy about! We played tennis with her just about every day during her treatments and she is living her life as if she never had cancer. It truly is amazing and we are so thankful for what Dr. Huber has done for her.

    I can’t speak for my mother, but I would be happy to answer any questions you might have, I was with her through the whole process. May God bless!

  5. My wife. She used the mixture of black strap molasses and baking soda as a last resort against stage 4 cancer. (she never did full blown chemo or radiation, but she did try low dose IPT therapy with no results) and it killed 3 of 5 spots, with two rapidly diminishing. She was initially diagnosed with stage 3 then stage 4. The diagnosis was in 2008 with confirmation in 2010 with a biopsy. she is still asymptomatic and healthy today in 2015.

  6. Erick how long did the treatments last or how long did she take the treatment before you and she realized it was working?

  7. Hi my best friend has breast cancer stage 2. Do you have clinic in NY? How i can contact you or get appointment?
    thanks Jolanta

  10. Please call me and tell me all the information to treat cancers natural please. Thank you very much and God bless. My name is karen.

  11. Hello, I am a very fair skinned 55 year old and have severe actinic keratosis lesions on the back of my hands and several areas on my body. Needless to say it is most annoying and problematic. Recently I started treating the area with a mixture of baking soda and baby iontment mixed together. It seems to be responding quite well after only a few days. Do you have a suggestion or recipe for this type of solution. I would like to apply it to my back but it is gritty. thank you, I’m encouraged thus far. Also does the intravenous method work for this type of skin cancer?

  12. Hi Jolanta, I am sorry to hear about your best friend, our clinic is located in Tempe, Arizona and it is our only location. You can contact us at 480-839-2800 to schedule a phone consultation or to setup an appointment. Thanks!

  13. Are there any peer-reviewed studies out there that can show me the facts and outcomes of high dose Vitamin C and Baking Soda treatments? I’m having trouble finding any…

  14. Michael, Hi, My name is Carol, in Georgia. I just tried to call this clinic, but could not reach them. Is there a phone number for them? or 706-601-8378 I am not sure how this format works. Could you let me know if this message gets to you.

  15. Carol,

    From experience, all you need to do is call them at (480) 839-2800 and set up a time to speak with one of the doctors. If they don’t answer leave a message

  16. I would be very cautious to take any type of sugar, especially molasses, when treating cancer. This is the exact opposite treatment which is recommended by Dr. Huber, this clinic, and it is not the treatment that Dr. Simoncini was using. Personally I would trust my life with a doctor that has successfully treated (and cured) hundreds of cancer patients as Dr. Huber has, over a taking the exact thing (sugar) that has been shown to feed the growth of cancer. I am just some guy on the internet, but to me it seems like the same exact thing as taking chemo which kills your body in order to heal it. I just doesn’t make sense.

  17. This is really a bad idea, sugar feeds cancer why would you use molasses to treat cancer? Especially when this website which is run by a real doctor says the complete opposite thing that you are saying?

  18. Hi Bill, Each person is on a case by case basis depending on your insurance carrier. We will submit to your insurance, and see if they reimburse the expenses. Most of the carriers will pay something, excluding medicare.

  19. Yes, but it takes more than just baking soda. They need to do the full treatments. In order to defeat cancer it must be attacked at every level and with every method necessary to reverse cancer’s multi-pronged assault on the body, even if that means that some of the various treatments have redundant effects. Our IV treatments consist of not just baking soda, but several other natural cancer fighting agents that fight the cancer on all these levels.

  20. Hi Erick,

    For everybody who got lucky with molasses and baking soda, there are many out there for whom it was a disaster. Then they show up at our clinic with widely spread metastases. I would not take the molasses. Baking soda is a good idea, but not without the other IV nutrients.

  21. Can you help someone with stage 4 ovarian cancer metasticized into lymphatic system? Did you say you do accept insurance? How can I get a consultation?

  22. Hi.I got prostate cancer at 50 in 2000.It was stage 4.Now iam taking hormonal shot every 4 mth and i am taking Casadex.
    Can baking soda help me.If i am taking Casadex my PSA is about 1 but if i stoped is growing up.

  23. my hubby has stage 4 throat and neck cancer had 2 chemo treatments the last one was 12/23/2014 he has a feeding tube since October 9th when his tumor closed off his throat to any food or drink. He is a neck breather has a total laryjectmey in 1983. The tumor has eaten its way out of the skin on his throat just above the Stoma. It has opened up a small whole that leaks out puss and does bleed some the other bigger one has not opened up with a whole. My question is about the baking Soda treatment and the cost of the clinic

  24. please let me know how to discuss the cancer case with you and get an assured email id is brief , my dad had a sigmoid colectomy in 2013.later in jan 2015 we realised a recurrence due to which he is using colostoma pouch since then.the last pet ct shows colorectal metastes.we gave radiotherapy but no effect.can the sodium bicarbonate therapy give him back his normal function? if yes, pl send me a positive mail .I would be waiting for ur answer like wish to see god.

  25. I was unfortunately diagnosed with male breast cancer recently. It is fully treatable and only stage two and not a very aggressive type. I am going for the operation in a few weeks. However, I read about the bicarb treatment and I decided to try it to try to shrink the tumor down before the operation. What I am about to tell you is the TRUTH ! For about the last 6 weeks I have been taking one teaspoon of bicarb mixed with honey {one part bicarb three pars honey} heat it a little so it mixes up easier. I also added a small amount of very concentrated green tea so the mixture is easier to drink. I also added a piece on cinnamon bark {whole cinnamon} while the green tea steeped in a cup. OK, my tumor was measured 3.2 centimeters 8 weeks ago and now, it is 2.2 centimeters as I had it measured at the hospital by a nurse a few days ago. Also, the itching that is accommodated by this kind of cancer has stopped. So there you go…. If you want more info let me know

  26. I subsist far below the poverty level. I only have medicare and medicaid. How screwed am I? I already have a port and I had chemo until after it had turned into a revival of the Spanish Inquisition. I was also blasted with radiation. Then I decided that enough was enough. I am definitely open to any available alternatives, even if they will only help reverse some of the damaging effects of chemo and radiation. I began a regimen of oral baking soda solution today.

  27. We do use intravenous baking soda as part of our treatments, but that is only a part of the IV that you will receive at our clinic. We also include other vitamins and minerals that are tailored to your specific condition. You may also receive vitamin-c, DMSO or other cancer fighting agents in our IV’s. If you have any other questions we would be happy to answer them 480-839-2800.

  28. I developed like a fungus in the same breast I was operated almost a year ago. It is like dollar coin size and also underneath where the breast touch the torso, it sting , and I have been applying a cream name ciclopenate. Can I go in the pool? I am afraid it could …
    get worse. Pease respond asp
