If you are a supporter of alkalizing therapy, then this natural treatment for cancer will resonate with you.

In vitro tests have shown cancer cells thrive in acidic and oxygen-free (anaerobic) environments. The first to describe the correlation between the acidic environment and cancer cell growth was Dr. Otto Warburg, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in physiology in 1931.


Dr. Warburg’s work

In his work he scientifically explained how the growth of cancer cells is triggered in the absence of oxygen, and as a result of sugar fermentation that occurs under such conditions.

Dr. Warburg was in fact describing acidic conditions. For cancer cells to maintain effective metabolism, they need a pH between 6.5 and 7.5. Their tolerance for change is small, therefore it has been argued that by raising the blood’s pH, we will effectively target the cancer cell’s cycle, stop its growth and cause it to die.

The key is to make your body more alkaline, and different ways to do that have been proposed (find more information in my previous article about how to balance your pH and find out if you are too acidic).

Alkalizing the body with baking soda and lemons

It has been shown that sodium bi-carbonate (baking soda) alkalizes the area around the tumor and prevents development of metastasis (spread of a cancer from one organ to another) in mice with breast cancer.


A study published in Cancer Research in 2009 confirmed that inhibition of tumor’s acidity reduced the number of metastasis in some cancers. A new study is underway at the University of Arizona Cancer Center, which will look specifically at the effects of sodium bicarbonate on breast cancer patients.

Lemons, too, help to balance the body’s pH. They have an alkaline effect on the body, despite their initial (citric) acidity. They contain limonoides which are phytochemicals and have anti-cancerous properties.

Vitamin C destroys free radicals, which damage our cells. An interesting thing about lemons is also that they act as an anti-microbial. Some researchers suggest that cancer is like a fungus, and should be treated in the same way, so lemons might be a powerful remedy.

Now put baking soda and lemons together, and you get a potentially powerful anti-cancer concoction. Also, lemons are a safe way to introduce high alkaline substances into the system.


If successful, this method destroys only cancer cells, while healthy cells are left alone. You can ingest the mix by drinking a glass of water with half a lemon and half a teaspoon of baking soda.

It is recommended to drink this mixture between meals, as if taken with food, it will reduce the effectiveness of the stomach’s acid and compromise digestion. Other methods of taking the mixture have been described, but they might require professional guidance, such as intravenous vitamin C therapy.


As we know, conventional cancer therapies come with many side effects, and sometimes there is little they can do for the patient. According to The Cancer Alternative Foundation, when applied properly, alkalizing or ‘pH therapy’ has had a success rate of 80% and higher, which is a hugely significant rate when compared with some of the mainstream methods.

Lemon and Baking Soda – Important Things to Consider

It’s worth pointing out that the research about lemon and baking soda for cancer is extremely limited. Although the current results are encouraging, further research is needed.

There is no scientific information about the dosage that is needed for an effective treatment and there is no exact information about the quantities of each ingredient in the mixture. In addition, the scientific evidence is extremely limited.

There are of course many factors that influence the individual’s treatment process, and there is no cure that would suit all. What is important is to keep an open mind, and evaluate all options available.

    How much to do take, is it just the one glass a day or more?

    • Jenny says:

      There are no “approved” or “recommended” guidelines, but consuming too much baking soda can increase your blood pressure as it contains sodium (see here – http://www.livestrong.com/article/305105-baking-soda-blood-pressure/). Take also in consideration that you consume sodium from other sources such as salt or processed foods, so don’t exaggerate. Probably a glass or two a day is enough. Read more about baking soda side effects, precautions and interactions here – http://www.webmd.com/drugs/2/drug-11325/sodium-bicarbonate-oral/details#side-effects

      • nyce says:

        hi jenny! lemon juice and baking soda can really heal cancer (stage 4 cancer)?

        • Jenny says:

          As I’ve mentioned in the article, It’s worth pointing out that the research about lemon and baking soda for cancer is extremely limited. Although the current results are encouraging, further research is needed, and this therapy CANNOT replace conventional medicine.

    • Jessica says:

      I read another link that said take 1/3 tablespoon of baking soda, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. Mix the ingredients into 8ounces of cold water, and stir well.

    • S says:

      I am curious as to how the alkalyzing works since our bodies are constantly achieving homeostasis in relation to ph balance? If you eat or drink acid or alkaline our bodies rebalance to a proper ph otherwise we die.

      • Niki says:

        Yes this is true. I have always wondered about that. Our bodies innately work via homeostasis to maintain a certain pH so alkalizing our bodies may seem like efforts done in vain. However, I think a key thing to remember is that a toxic diet or toxic habits might force the body to suffer-en-route to enacting homeostasis. So the liver and kidneys have to be over-exerted along with other organs in order to keep the preferred pH. In the process, free-radical accumulation, tumors, immune disorders and allergies etc. may ensue. Alkalizing the body might serve the purpose of aiding homeostasis, reducing harsh acidity imposed by the typical American diet and preventing the formation of malignant cellular activity. Since all of our organs work together, they are affected by one another directly or indirectly. Throwing pharmaceutical drugs in the mix (rather than natural alternatives) can only make things worse. Therefore, I am a big fan of alkalizing foods and also (as Dr. Sebi suggests) electric foods.

        • ROBERT M TAYLOR SR says:


    • Stacie says:

      The article says 1/2 teaspoon with 1/2 of a lemon. I put mine in 6 to 8 ounces of warn filtered water and drink it every morning.

    • Kishore says:

      Iam suffering for AML lukemia can I use this

      • Karl says:

        Use the receipt above for alkalizing your body. Eat raw beets, drink fresh beet juice which will help greatly in your case.

    • Della Roth says:

      once, 30 minutes before breakfast and 30 minutes before bed, on an empty stomach.

  2. Sheila Ayide says:

    Is it safe to take bicarbonate of soda & lemon mixture before food?

    • Jenny says:

      The recommendation of Livestrong website is to consume it between meals. It is said there that if taken with food, it will reduce the effectiveness of the stomach’s acid and compromise digestion. See more information here – http://www.livestrong.com/article/376495-the-effects-of-drinking-baking-soda-water/

    • Elka says:

      no as this combination is very alkaline. Stomach needs acidity to digest the food properly otherwise you may develop digestive problems. I use it at least 1 hour before eating anything.

    • Stacie says:

      Yes Sheila but not an hour before or after a meal. It neutralizes your stomach acid and will make it difficult to digest your food. However it’s also used for indigestion and can be used after meals rather than store bought antacids!
      I’m a Reiki Master healer and many of my cancer clients have had amazing success with this!

    • Dede Tudor says:

      Please re-read the article. No it is not to be taken before food. Re-read the article more carefully, Please.

    What is the propotion of lemon caustic soda and water

    • Jenny says:

      Mix a glass of water with a squeeze of half a lemon (or less if it’s too sour for you) and half a teaspoon of baking soda.

      • Pamela says:

        How often and how long do you drink the baking soda and lemon mixture. I have endometrial Lung cancer.

        • Jenny says:

          Hi Pamela, the problem with many natural remedies is that there is no established research yet that determines duration and frequency like with conventional medicine. I couldn’t find specific guidelines for this mixture, but I believe that 1-2 per day is enough to avoid excess doses and it is recommended to drink this mixture between meals, as if taken with food, it will reduce the effectiveness of the stomach’s acid and compromise digestion. As per duration – this can be done on a daily basis but generally speaking it’s good to give the body a break of several days in between periods of consumptions (for example drinking it for several days and then giving a break of several days), but again there are no official and established recommendations. I would also like to mention that since baking soda is officially considered a medicine, and can interfere with certain medications, you need to consult a health care professional before using it – especially if you take medicine or have a special health condition.

    • Angie says:

      Rahim, it is BAKING SODA, not caustic soda….the latter will do very severe damage to your mouth and digestive tract if you drink it

    • Karla says:

      Caustic soda will kill you! It’s baking soda! sodium bicarbonate.

    • Linda says:

      Not caustic soda

  6. Beth Snively says:

    is this a good thing to drink even if you don’t have cancer but use it as a preventative ?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Beth, people who believe in the alkaline diet claim that alkalizing your body can reduce the risk for developing certain diseases that are associated with inflammatory processes in the body. However it must be said that the medical establishment does not acknowledge it and claims there is no scientific evidence to support it. This is why we need more research in this field.

    • Bjarne says:

      Yes, Beth, I believe it is. I’m a studying-holistic health consultant and I absolutely believe that if your body is in a state of pH balance, it is HIGHLY unlikely to contract cancer, diabetes or other degenerative diseases. We are exposed to so many toxins & acidic substances on a daily basis that I recommend the fresh lemon & bicarb in warm water at least every other day. Just note that it should be FRESHLY-PRESSED lemon juice. There is no substitute for the real, fresh thing!

      • Kay says:

        Thank you for mentioning warm water Bjarne. I’ve been using the mixture for the past few days but didn’t know the water was supposed to be warm. My ph strips haven’t shown a change yet.

    Thank u so much for keeping me informed.
    God bless snd more power.

  8. Nicole says:

    Can you take this drink as a preventative or only if you already have cancer?

  9. comfort says:

    can it be used as one of the ways to increase the PH level of alkaline in the body or only for cure of cancer. is there any side effect of taking it, if you are not a cancer patient

  10. Ed says:

    I wonder which is better in alkalizing the body – baking soda with lemon juice or with apple cider vinegar?

  11. Hirut Wondimu says:

    Dear Jenny thank you for your information. i have goiter problems and my doctor said it is a cosmetics problem and in the long run if is is large you made surgery. but now when i saw your posts i have one question the combination of lemon and soda is it affect my goiter and haw can i use it and also what kind of treatment i can use i saw your posts about goiter last month and also this combination prevent pre cancer?
    Jenny sorry for my poor grammar I am from Ethiopia and my mother tong was Amharic.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Hirut, I was unable to find a reference that lemon and baking soda is uses to treat goiter. There are quite a number of websites that offer natural treatments for goiter, but I don’t know how effective or trusted they are. As for preventing other diseases, see my reply to Beth Snively.

    • Mark says:

  12. Hilda says:

    Hi Jenny. Can I take this lemon and Bicarb if I have a Hernia or Ulcer. Thanks.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Hilda, I’m not sure. Because you have a special condition, the best thing to do is to consult your doctor before taking it to be on the safe side of things.

    • c/o larry rivers says:

      A hernia is muscle related, nothing to do with lemon n baking soda LMFAO !!

    • Eva says:

      Yes you can. I say it by my experience. I had an ulcer when I was 12 and my mom used to give me water with lemon and baking soda . And magic: no more ulcer since that age. Now I am 43 and I forgot I had it since now you did remind it to me.
      It was only this magic mix that did relax my stomach aches.

  13. MEL says:

    What is a good herbal remedy for Swollen Lymph Nodes?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Mel, from what I’ve read in medical websites, there is no specific treatment for swollen lymph nodes, because treatment of swollen lymph nodes concentrates on identifying and treating the underlying cause of the inflammation. There are many conditions that can cause swollen lumph nodes, and the swollen glands are often the first sign that something is wrong. So if you have symptoms of some other condition together with enlarged lymph nodes, you should seek immediate medical assessment.
      Medicienet website gives indication as to when you need to see a doctor – http://www.medicinenet.com/swollen_lymph_nodes/page6.htm
      If there are no other symptomes, Mayo clinic website recommends to apply a warm, wet compress, such as a washcloth dipped in hot water to the affected area, and get rest to help in your recovery from the underlying condition. You can find more suggestions here – http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/lymph_nodes.html

    • Kay says:

      Oregon Grape tincture may help with cleansing the lymph. It was mentioned on the Earth Clinic or Cure Zone website and it helped me. If I remember correctly I purchased mine off the vitacost discount website.

  14. raquel garcia says:

    Thanks 4 the info..very helpful..

    • Jenny says:

      Dr. Tullio suggests a radical and extreme theory which has not been proven scientifically. The whole theory of acid alkaline foods is not scientifically based at the moment, and further research is needed. It is not a substitute for a conventional anti cancer treatment. I believe in keeping an open mind, as there are some research about it at the moment (which I mentioned in the article), and it will be interesting to see how it develops.

  15. Jaimes says:

    Lemon and baking soda is no scientifically proven or no evidence that can cure cancer is this true? Coz i want to try, but a little confuse if i will try it..anyways i dont have cancer.,but to alkalinizing your body is i think that is good to know to preventing cancer..sorry for the grammar

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Jaimes, many alternative remedies have yet to be proven scientifically and still require further research, including in this case. The alkaline theory is believed to be good also as a preventative measure that reduces the inflammation in the body, which is believed to cause many ailments.

  19. jacelyn says:

    I have breast cancer stage 2. Can I drink this baking soda with lemon for cure the cancer. How many times can I drink for one days?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Jacelyn, this doesn’t come instead of a conventional treatment for cancer and is still under research. Generally speaking, as a preventative measure people drink it once or twice a day, but because of your special condition, you need to talk to you doctor before taking it to make sure it does not interfere with your current treatment or any medications you take.

  20. jeff says:

    Hi Jenny, Just wondering if it has to be fresh lemon, or can I use the bottled lemon?

  21. Babs says:

    Pls what can used to cure ulcer.

    • Jenny says:

      Read my article about stomach ulcers here. In any case, you should consult with your doctor before taking any supplements to make sure they don’t interfere with other medications you take.

    • Eva says:

      I will tell you how did I cured my ulcer.
      Every single morning on empty stomach I ate the white of one egg meringue. My doctor suggested it to me. He said : the calcium that the egg’s white has will tonify and heal your stomach forever. And when I had pain in my stomach my mom used to give me this magic mix we’re talking about:water,lemon,baking soda. Honney also is the best for ulcer. My ulcer disappeared in one year. So for 30 years after my stomach is very strong and it is. And also fasting is good for healing the ulcer and cleaning all the body.

  22. Richard Lugod says:

    Hi Jenny, is honey and lemon juice (we are using citrus fruit calamansi) good to prevent cancer?

  23. Brenda says:

    is lemon and baking soda ok to take when you are on blood thinners?

    • Jenny says:

      Baking soda can interact with certain medications, but I don’t know if these include blood thinners, so the safest thing will be to consult with your doctor.

  24. Durgesh Singh says:

    I m a cml blast crisis (blood cancer) patient. Is it usefull for me.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Dugresh, the lemon baking soda as a cancer treatment is still under research and cannot replace the conventional therapy. You can add it to the mainstream method but you will need to consult your doctor to make sure the baking soda or lemon don’t interfere with current medications that you take. Wishing you a quick and full recovery.

      • Ajay Barve says:

        Jenny, Thanks for posting this informative article. My mother (69yrs) is CML (blood cancer) patient and takes Gleevec tablet. I am going to ask her to start taking 1 glass of water with half lemon and 1/2 tea spoon baking soda and see if it has any side effects. My only doubt is for blood cancer will drinking baking soda help? Should it not be injected into blood vessel (by a doctor)? I will be grateful if you can share any other link that prescribe baking soda treatment for CML.
        Many thanks

        • Jenny says:

          Hi Ajay, I’m not a doctor and cannot give specific medical advice. Baking soda can interact with some medications so you need to talk to the doctor to make sure there is no drug interference before your mother consumes it. Also this cannot replace a conventional treatment.

  25. Dee says:

    Hi. And thanks for the info. I already drink a mixture of apple cider, lemon, honey, cinnamon, cayenne pepper in glass water daily. Does this also work for this purpose of killing cancer cells.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Dee, ACV and lemon alkalize the body, but the whole alkaline diet is still under research and is not a proven method by the conventional medicine to kill cancer cells. This is why it cannot replace conventional cancer therapies.

  26. Winona Sollock says:

    Baking soda interferes with the absorption of Zinc. Very important mineral, so I wouldn’t even consider this recommendation.

      Hi Andrea, baking soda can interact with certain medications, so it’s always a good practice to consult with your doctor before consuming it if you take medications or if you have a special medical condition.

  30. Lena says:

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Lena, one of the attributes of lemon water is that it make us lose weight faster. One reason is that lemon is full of pectin fibers that make us feel satisfy for longer, and another reason is that it improves digestion and eliminates waste from the body. What you need to find out is whether the lemon baking soda caused your weight loss, or it might be that the reason for losing weight lies elsewhere.

    Would this work for RA as well?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Karen, the alkaline diet presumes both osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are caused by too much acid which is linked to many chronic health conditions, so according to this diet consuming more alkaline foods can help RA patients.

  36. Caroline says:

    Hello, I’m a 27 year old female with moderate to severe Crohn’s disease for the last 12 years, Currently taking prednisone and ranitidine for flare up. Could i take the lemon and baking soda to help my flares. I’m truly afraid to go on these medications the doctors keep pushing and they don’t want to hear anything else when it comes to alternative medicine or treatment. I’ve already tried humaria and have had a throat infection that won’t go away and it’s been 3 months, so now I’m looking for alternative ways to treat my crohns and hopefully help my throat infection. Any suggestions would help. Thanks

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Tiffany, I don’t know the answer but just remember that baking soda may interfere with some medications, so if you take any medications, talk to your doctor before consuming it.

    • Rich says:

      My brother had severe crohns and managed to reverse it naturally through diet. Took several years of a somewhat boring diet but stuck to it religously. Mostly medeterianian type food.. Lots of sun dried tomatoes, olives, veges, avacadoes, egg whites, chicken breast, not too much fruit especially sugar based such as pineapple and orange, no yeast, no sugar, no white rice, no potatoes although some pasta seemed ok…most seafood was avoided except some grilled or BBQ white fish such as snapper although salmon was also seemed better for his stomach. He used to eat about 3 bowls of natural yogurt a day and found some good substitutions such as almond pancakes with honey and banana which we started serving in my restaurant as we got pretty good at making them for him.. The doctors were pretty amazed as it was all natural but his dedication paid off as he no longer needs a bag.. If you need more info I can ask him for more details

  42. MisterMiracle says:

    Is it okay to do half pint of water, full squeezed lemon, full squeezed orange, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 table spoon apple cider vinegar with mother.
    Is this combination fine to do? i been reading everywhere but never does is say with these combined.
    Always ACVwm and baking soda or ACVwm and lemon, or it is lemon and baking soda. why is there nowhere to find on the www if its fine to do ACVwm lemon and baking soda 🙁

  43. Adron says:

    This article is incorrect in that it’s NOT lemon juice but either black strap molasses or raw maple syrup (NOT the store-bought kind) you need to take with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). Why? because Cancer “feeds” on sugars, and you need a delivery system of sugar which the sodium bicarbonate can attach to so that it can be delivered to the cancer in the first place, and lemon juice does NOT do this. If you are SERIOUS about trying to “cure” your cancer then simply switch out the suggested Lemon Juice with either Black Strap Molasses or RAW Maple Syrup (the Black Strap Molasses is cheaper and more easily available though less tasty, but if you have cancer and are looking for a “cure” then TASTE should be the last thing you should be worried about). Heat up a teaspoon of Black Strap Molasses and put it in a tall glass of purified water and put in a teaspoon of baking soda and mix it up then drink it. Do this three times per day, once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once in the evening before you go to bed (not RIGHT before unless you enjoy getting up to pee in the middle of the night) but at least an hour after your evening meal. ALSO cut out as much other sugars from your diet as possible, which obviously includes store-bought milk (which is basically sugar water-check the label, people) and also acidic intake such as coffee, and if you simply can’t cut out ALL meat then AT LEAST stop eating RED meat. Seriously, you don’t just take this “magic drink” and then your cancer is gone in a week. You also have to change your diet -the thing that gave you cancer in the first place. But as for the lemon juice, as i said before, that’s a mistake. The sodium bicarbonate needs a SUGAR DELIVERY SYSTEM to attach itself to in order to GET to your cancer, or else you’re just drinking it for NOTHING. Hope this helps 🙂

    Can the honey and baking soda be used along with budwig protocol

    • Jenny says:

      Lemon and baking soda don’t appear on the list of foods to avoid in the Budwig diet. As for honey I saw conflicting opinions. In one list only xylitol (made from birch tress) or liquid stevia are good options (see here). However another reference allowed a little bit of honey.

  45. Rich says:

    Good info to know as I’ve lost too many people with various types of cancer… Do limes offer the same effect as lemons as they are much easier to get here in Asia.. Also does baking soda help with gout as a few people cross referenced apple cider which many people swear by to avoid gout attacks.. Thanks

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Pearly, I am not a doctor and therefore cannot give a specific advice. Generally speaking, baking soda can interact with some medications, so you need to speak with your doctor to make sure it does not interfere with current medications you take.

  48. Maximus says:

    I was suffering from a painful heel spur for the past year and was having difficulty walking and the aching pain had spread to both my calves. Doctors prescribed painkillers, coticosteroid injection, creams, ointments, calcium, glucosamine, magnesium, none of them completely took away my pain. A few days back i went for vacation and could not stand more than 30 min. I am just 39 yrs old. Right after coming back from my vacation i drank a teaspoon of baking soda with 2 glasses of water. The next morning, all my pain was gone. I have been drinking 2 glasses per day for 3 days now and my heel spur pain is almost not noticeable. This stuff really works!

    Hi I would like to ask you – what is the difference between baking soda and baking powder ( sodium bicarbonate). In my home I Have baking powder and bicarbonate of soda?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Lyn, see the difference between baking soda and baking powder here. Don’t replace between the two. Use baking soda and not baking powder.

    is there such a thing as Epsom salt which can be used for drinking ? if so where can i find it ? if not what can i replace it with?

    • Jenny says:

      Epsom salts taken internally must be food grade and can be found in drug stores. I’ve heard that consuming it creates a laxative effect by relaxing digestive muscles, however I personally have never taken it internally, so I’m not sure exactly how to take it for internal use. Seek advise from a professional health practitioner.

    My wife had a cancerous tumor in her uterous… Quite honestly, amidst our storm, and many of us are there at this moment, she consumed this concoction and when the doctors performed the full historectomy, they found that the tumor was half dead and there was absolute NO spread of cancer in the cervix, filoppian tubes, the ovaries… In the midst of taking this concoction, she took other natural supplements including shakes containing guanabana, guayana, red bell pepper, celery, turmeric, avacodo, wheat grass, matcha tea… The most important ingredients are love, support, prayer, an open mind and the attitude that nothing is going to take you down!!!!! Presently, she is doing very well! And, we as a team are still taking the above supplements each and every day!!!

    pls I don’t knw if dis breast cancer or nt a friend mine breast one is more bigger Dan d oda but she is living healthy can she also take dis mix of lemon nd baking soda

    • Jenny says:

      Some women have asymmetric breasts where one breast is larger than the other. This is a very common concern among female adolescents and even adult women. It can be due to normal anatomic variations, hormonal changes during puberty or breast lump/cancer. Uneven breast are very common and unless your breast asymmetry is a new thing, it’s nothing to stress over. However if it’s a sudden changes in the size, shape, and appearance of your breast and/or you feels other unusual symptoms such as pain, nipple discharge or changes, then it’s best to discuss it with a doctor to see if it’s just a cosmetic issue or something else.

    Hello sir | mam
    My mother is diagnosed with the ovarian Cancer stage 3c … she has undergone with the three chemo session s within a month there will be surgery for removing ovary and infected area.so answer my question as early as possible if this remedy works for ovarian Cancer or not and what should be the receipy ? I am really looking forward for using this remedy..

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Zalak, this is NOT a replacement for a conventional treatment and is not an approved treatment by conventional medicine. It is still in early stages of research. You should follow the advice of the specialists who take care of your mother.

  54. Brian says:

    If you seek advice from a GP…they will tell you there is no scientific evidence that baking soda mixed with whatever will cure cancer….full stop.
    And then gaze at you as though you are mental to believe it. The proof is evident in those that have taken it and the cancer is in remission or has completely vanished, over time.

  55. salma says:

    what is baking soda? what is baking powder? re they not the same? presently am taking baking powder to treat hormonal imbalance, pls which is the right one?

    • Jenny says:

      Baking soda and baking powder are not the same thing. Baking powder contains baking soda. It is a mixture of baking soda, a dry acid (like cream of tartar), and sometimes cornstarch. What you need to use is baking soda.

  56. Lanita says:

    Would this work for cancer in the lymph nodes..

    • Jenny says:

      As I’ve mentioned at the end of the article, the research about lemon and baking soda for cancer is extremely limited and further research is needed. There is no scientific information about the dosage that is needed for an effective treatment and there is no exact information about the quantities of each ingredient in the mixture.

    Hi Jenny I have a severe chest pain what can I use to stop the pain

    • Jenny says:

      Severe chest pain can indicate various conditions including one of the signs of heart attack. I’m not a doctor, but if you have a severe chest pain you need to go to your doctor or even hospital to be checked and to find the reason for that. Severe pain should never be ignored and indicates that there is a problem. Get a medical help ASAP.

  59. Robert says:

    This combination makes no sense whatsoever. The reaction of citric acid plus sodium bicarbonate produces carbon dioxide (which bubbles off), Sodium citrate, and water. So what are the health benefits of Sodium citrate? Only thing I can find is a use for cystitis,
    but it’s not an everyday drink for health. Serious side effects of citric acid and sodium citrate include muscle twitching or cramps, swelling or weight gain, weakness, mood changes, rapid and shallow breathing, fast heart rate, restless feeling, black or bloody stools, severe diarrhea, or seizure (convulsions).

  60. David says:

    I use this mixture three times a day, first thing in the morning….around 10:00am est…..Around 2:00pm, I put a little blackstrap molasses in my mixture….And here is my kicker….DEEP BREATHING….I do it several times a day, notes around to remind me….I have been on this for two weeks & I absolutely feel the best I have felt in years, absolutely great….Look forward to getting out of bed, plenty of energy….I credit it all to the mixture, and especially to the deep breathing….If you do the deep breathing, do it correctly….I am 73 years old, eat a very healthy diet & feel like I’m 40…..

    Deep breathing is the key….Will help you sleep better, too…

  61. Barty says:

    i’ve been using this method for atleast 1 month..but i’ve noticed that the bad side effect of this are pimples coming out on my scalp and skin…is it normal?.thanks.

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Hi Barty, I don’t really know what to tell you. I wouldn’t imagine that it can cause pimples as a side effect, and it might be from something else, but who knows?. Try to reduce the frequency of consuming the mixture and see if it makes any difference.

  62. Frances says:

    Jenny it’s refreshing to read your material. Unlike so many self proclaimed ‘gurus’ you present you’re theory with a very responsible attitude and caution. Some people are balanced in there response and questions while there are those who seem to think you’re a’god’ with the answer to everything. We’ll done on bringing people back to a realistic stance on the need to be cautious and not to dismiss the medical advice and treatment. You’re absolutely correct in saying it is not a case of ‘either or ‘.
    As a third time aggressive stage 4 ovarian and twice stage 3 aggressive breast cancer i have availed of superb medical treatment , surgery, chemo, radiation and when completed these treatments I I have bought into the lemon and baking soda daily. I feel that it has enhanced my Survival chances ,. 20, 10, and 5 years later I feel wonderful, have no health issues thank god, and enjoy my half spoon of baking soda and half lemowater at least once a day. Thank you and again well done on your outreach to so many who are living with dread and fear. Fr

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Hi Frances, I’m very glad to hear that you feel great. You give tremendous hope for so many people who are battling with cancer. I wish you a fantastic health, happy life and longevity!

  63. arlene Tantay says:

    Hello Jenny,
    I am one of those stage 2 breast cancer, already one week when i got my operation i think after 1 month healing next is will be chemo it depends what is the result on my breast thAt they removed, is it true that baking soda & lemon can cure?

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Hi Arlene, as mentioned at the end of article, the research about lemon and baking soda for cancer is extremely limited and further research is needed. There is no scientific information about the dosage that is needed for an effective treatment and there is no exact information about the quantities of each ingredient in the mixture. So it cannot replace conventional treatment. If you consider drinking it, make sure to consult with your doctor or specialist to make sure it doesn’t interfere with current medications you take. Otherwise I wish you a full and quick recovery!

  64. Mark says:

    Mixing Sodium Bicarbonate and Lemon juice together makes FALSE claims of curing cancer!
    Made from soda ash, soda bicarbonate has an alkaline base. Approximately 5 percent of lemon juice is citric acid, which accounts for the sour taste of the lemon. When you mix an acid and a base, the result is a chemical reaction that creates a new product, with a neutral base. In the case of lemon juice and baking soda, the new product is (carbon dioxide gas) (Water) and (salt).
    The above result of the reaction between the two produces a benign compound that is inert and does absolutely nothing for cancer and as it as described above consists thereafter of the following;
    Dissipated Carbon Dioxide gas.

    Those that keep propagating this unproven negative treatment should desist, all it does is give false hope to cancer sufferers that take it hoping for a cure and it doesn’t work!

    • Jenny Hills says:

      The article mentions specifically and very clearly at the end of it about the lack of scientific research – see under the title “Lemon and Baking Soda – Important Things to Consider”. I think the words there are clear and balance between the potential of keeping an open mind about alternative cures and the current situation. The conclusion at the end of the article is very clear and does not in any way give false hope or claim that this combination is an ultimate cure.
