Lemons and baking soda is considered as powerful healing combination together. Research is showing powerful natural cures with these household items. $2 million was just granted to a study to determine the effects of baking soda on cancer because the early results have been so good.
Cancer rates are rising fast and a need for alternative treatments is becoming even more prominent. Dr. Marty Pagel, PhD, from the University of Arizona Cancer Center will test the effects of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) on breast cancer patients. He has been given a $ 2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to find to perform the study.
Traditional methods can work well on some cancers and not so well on others. The same can be said for various natural cures. On top of this, the state of the human body and mind receiving treatment wiill influence either the method is effective or not. Things like organic food and clean water. Also, do they believe and feel they can overcome their disease? These are all important factors with any treatment.
A number of studies in the past have shown interesting results using sodium bi-carbonate on cancer tumors. This is great for encouraging the funding for further research. For example: Dr. Robert J. Gillies has already demonstrated the effectiveness of baking soda in alkalinizing the area around tumors in mice. His same team found that bicarbonate soda also increases tumor pH and inhibits spontaneous metastases in mice with breast cancer. All of these findings and many more are very exiciting for the natural cures community. Scientists are finally taking a natural approach serious.
As far as the lemon goes, lemon has been shown to contain anti-carcinogenic properties such as, limonoides which are phytochemicals found in many citrus fruits. Lemon also has anti-microbial effects which have been tested in research exploring the cancer is a fungus hypothesis. Lemons are also highly effective in detoxification of the body. They are rich in vitamin C and can help your body neutralize cell-damage from free radicals. Limonene, a substance found in lemons, can also help to stimulate lymph flow which is important in removing carcinogens from the body. A weak lymph system is an easy way to contract a disease.
Lemon is also a great way to balance Ph. When the baking soda and lemon are taken together its one of the safest ways to introduce high alkalinity into the system. These methods of treatment are able to treat cancerous cells without destroying the healthy cells. This is another reason to stay away from chemotherapy as it destroys all the cells including the healthy ones.
One method for introducing this drink into your body is to mix 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda with about 250ml of water and about 1 half of a lemon.
