Maple Syrup and Baking
March 13, 2008
Read carefully as this does not work on ALL tumours. It is a
quick fix and the whole lifestyle/diet needs to be addressed too
to stop recurrence......
Remember Dr. Tullio Simoncini and his treatment of cancer as a
fungus? If not, you can reread an article called "Cancer Is A
Fungus" in my August 2, 2007 newsletter. It's at:
The story told of Jim Kelmun, a 75-year old former truck driver
and his success in helping people heal cancer using -- you
guessed it -- baking soda and maple syrup. Seein' as how I'm a
76-year old former airplane driver who has helped a couple
thousand people recover from cancer, I figured ol' Jim from
Asheville and I had a lot in common and I better pass on his
story (and Dr. Mark's reaction to it) to you, my loyal readers,
and see what you think.
First, here's a short quote from the story, so you get the
[Kelmun]...has no medical degree and authorities are
demanding that he stop dispensing his 'wonder drug' -- or face
a prison sentence.
But his loyal patients swear by the man they fondly call
'Dr. Jim' -- and say he's a miracle worker.
'Dr Jim cured me of lung cancer,' declares farmer Ian
Rodhouse, 64. 'Those other doctors told me I was a goner ahd
had less than six months to live.'
'But the doc put me on his mixture -- and in a couple of
months, the cancer was gone. It didn't even show up on
The gentle, silver-haired grandfather -- who has been
preparing home remedies since 1954 -- says he first hit upon
the miracle cure in the mid-1970's, when he was treating a
family plagued by breast cancer.
'There were five sisters in the family and all of them
passed away from the big C by age 50 -- except one,' he
'I asked if there was anything different in her diet. She
told me she was partial to sipping maple syrup and baking
'I figured, let me try it out on some of my other patients.'
Since then, 'Dr. Jim' has dispensed his mixture to more than
200 patients diagnosed with terminal cancer. Amazingly, he
claims that of that number, 185 lived at least 15 more years
-- and nearly half enjoyed a complete remission of their
Well, you get the idea. When Dr. Sircus and I discussed this
subject, it was obvious that the "goofy" article on "Dr. Jim"
had made him put on his thinking cap (which is quite well worn
-- Dr. Mark is one of the "thinkingest" docs I know). In fact,
he sent me an article he had written on the subject that should
interest any of you "battling" cancer.
You may recall that Dr. Sircus has a regimen for treating
cancer which includes magnesium chloride, iodine, selenium and
alpha lipoic acid. After reading of Dr. Simoncini's work, he
added baking soda to his regimen. But even Dr. Simoncini
recognized the limitations of his own baking soda treatment.
Here's a quote from Dr. Simoncini:
"The therapeutic treatment of bicarbonate salts [baking
soda] can be administered orally, through aerosol,
intravenously and through catheter for direct targeting of
tumors...[but it] can achieve positive results only in some
tumors, while others - such as the serious ones of the brain
or the bones - remain unaffected by the treatment."
Dr. Mark's thinking led him to an interesting hypothesis. What
if, he said, baking soda and maple syrup worked just like IPT
(Insulin Potentiated Therapy)? Here are some quotes from his
"IPT treatment consists of giving doses of insulin to a
fasting patient sufficient to lower blood sugar into the 50
mg/dl. Then they inject lower doses of toxic chemo drugs [when
the cancer cell] receptors are more sensitive and take on
medications more rapidly and in higher amounts.
The bicarbonate/maple syrup treatment works in reverse to
IPT. Dr. Tullio Simoncini acknowledges that cancer cells
gobble up sugar so when you encourage the intake of sugar it's
like sending in a Trojan horse. The sugar is not going to
encourage the growth of the cancer colonies because the baking
soda is going to kill the cells before they have a chance to
The treatment is a combination of pure, 100% maple syrup
[bulk Grade B from the health food store] and baking soda and
was first reported on the Cancer Tutor site. When mixed and
heated together, the maple syrup and baking soda bind
together. The maple syrup targets cancer cells (which consume
15 times more glucose than normal cells) and the baking soda,
which is dragged into the cancer cell by the maple syrup,
being very alkaline forces a rapid shift in pH killing the
The actual formula is to mix one part baking soda with three
parts (pure, 100%) maple syrup in a small saucepan. Stir
briskly and heat the mixture for 5 minutes. Take one teaspoon
daily is what is suggested by Cancer Tutor but one could
probably do this several times a day."
In summary, Dr. Sircus says:
"The maple syrup apparently enables and increases
penetration of bicarbonate into all compartments of the body,
even those which are difficult or impossible to penetrate by
other means. These compartments include the central nervous
system (CN, through the blood-brain barrier, joints, solid
tumors, and perhaps even the eyes. IPT makes cell membranes
more permeable, and increases uptake of drugs into cells. The
maple syrup will make tissues more permeable, too. It will
transport the bicarbonate across the blood-brain barrier and
every other barrier in the body for sugar is universally
needed by all cells in the
body...Both IPT and bicarbonate/maple syrup treatments use the
rabid growth mechanisms of cancer cells against them."
There you have it, folks. Can you imagine this mixture harming
you? Two or three teaspoons a day? Would I try it? You bet. It
meets all my criteria: simple, effective, inexpensive and
available anywhere in the world.
Incidentally, Dr. Sircus has moved baking soda/maple syrup up
to Number Three in his regimen -- right behind magnesium
chloride and iodine.
Thanks, Dr. Sircus, for your magnificently open mind and
flexibility in applying your knowledge to new ideas. Well,
according to Jim Kelmun, it's no new idea -- just another
suppressed cancer treatment that works.
CONCLUSIONS of CANCER TUTOR ON
The Weekly World News
is the source of the information for
this treatment. This tabloid was published out of Boca Raton,
Florida. It specialized in writing articles which other newspapers
would not publish. However, most people would agree that many of
their published articles were pure fiction. They still have a
We have not been able to validate the authenticity of the
article which discusses the Kelmun protocol, nor has anyone
validated the authenticity of anyone interviewed in the article.
The treatment is a combination of baking soda and maple syrup.
After a thorough analysis of this treatment the Cancer Tutor
website has decided NOT to endorse or even support this
While the Kelmun protocol may be effective in the digestive
tract, there are well-established treatments which are known to
be effective in the digestive tract.
For example, Dr. Simoncini, who is for real, and
is a well-known oncologist in Italy, says that baking soda and
water are only effective on cancers of the digestive tract, from
the throat to the end of the colon. Cancers outside of the
digestive tract need the baking soda injected so that the
baking soda is not neutralized by the digestive tract.
Also, the Vitamin C and Baking Soda protocol mentioned on this
website is also superb at dealing with digestive tract cancers.
Thus, there is no real reason for a third baking soda treatment
for the digestive tract.
The real issue is getting the baking soda past the digestive
tract. With Dr. Simoncini the baking soda is injected. This
creates a localized area of the body which has a high
concentration of baking soda. It is an effective treatment.
With the Kelmun protocol the maple syrup cannot get the baking
soda past the digestive tract because there is no chemical way
for maple syrup and baking soda to chemically bind. Furthermore,
even if there was a way, there are still serious problems.
First, getting the baking soda past the digestive tract does
not create a localized area of high concentrations of baking
It is NOT advisable to create a wide area of a high
concentration of baking soda because the blood must remain at a
Furthermore, human blood already contains some baking soda. The
baking soda acts as a buffer for acids.
Human blood must remain at a constant pH or else the person may
die. It is not wise to tamper with this pH. Baking soda already
in the blood is used by the body to keep the blood from becoming
Some have suggested that the combination of baking soda and
maple syrup in the stomach creates carbon dioxide which is
helpful in treating cancer.
The fact is that carbon dioxide is present throughout your
body. Every cell in the body excretes carbon dioxide. The blood
carries this carbon dioxide to the lungs where it is discharged
when you breathe.
Claiming that adding carbon dioxide to the body is good is like
saying that taking a shower outside, during a thunderstorm, is
