Treating Cancer & Destroying Tumors w/ Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate): Is Cancer “Just a Fungus”?

with 2 comments

by Healing Cancer Naturally © August 2007

An Italian oncologist, Dr. Tullio Simoncini, has devised a simple, very inexpensive and apparently frequently effective cancer treatment centered around the use of sodium bicarbonate, taken orally or by infusion. This baking soda treatment is based on the thesis that “Cancer Is a Fungus” (also the title of Dr. Simoncini’s book). Sodium bicarbonate administered directly on the neoplastic masses is said to destroy the fungal colonies lying at the “heart” of the tumor. Additionally, according to Dr. Tullio Simoncini, this baking soda treatment could even be self-applied in certain types of cancer, i.e. if the cancer is limited to the organ (not infiltrating the confined [probably meaning “surrounding/adjacent”] tissue, for example in the oral cavity, oesophagus, stomach, intestine, rectum. The supervision of a doctor, however, is indicated. In all other cases the assistance of a doctor is mandatory (to administer the infusions etc.).

Success rates and application of sodium bicarbonate therapy

Dr. Simoncini reports on cases of brain tumors (“both primary and metastatic in general regress or stop growing after therapy with sodium bicarbonate at five per cent solution”), intestinal cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, cancer of the spleen, liver cancer, lung cancer, oropharyngeal cancer (mouth, tongue, palate, pharynx), peritoneal carcinosis, pleura tumor (“primary or secondary pleuric neoplasias are amongst the easiest to treat with the therapy method”), prostate tumor, stomach cancer (“one of the tumors that are easiest to treat because of its easily reachable position through the mouth”), tumor of the pancreas and others. This includes successes, sometimes long-term (up to 20 years* when to my knowledge Dr. Simoncini started using this treatment), as well as other less successful experiences and outcomes. 

* See for example these excerpts from a lung cancer case featured at Dr. Simoncini’s site “The therapeutic treatment is based on two essential elements: liver detoxification simultaneously with administration of bicarbonate salts orally, through aerosol and intravenously. After about eight months of bloodless and painless therapy, the mass completely disappears. Over one year after the end of the therapy, the x-rays show only a thickening of the inter-lobe separation, which is the result of healing. The patient is still alive some 20 years after the therapy.” Incidentally, the related Country doctor cures cancer – with baking soda & maple syrup also features a case of lung cancer cure attributed to sodium bicarbonate (plus maple syrup).

Other cancer and/or health-related applications of sodium bicarbonate

Baking soda, in addition to its many time-honoured applications (household and other “clean-up” purposes), is also used in baths and rinses for chelating ionizing radiation and/or killing bacteria.


Since this looks like a promising treatment and fits two of the major ethical criteria of Healing Cancer Naturally (availability to near-everyone due to being inexpensive, low to no toxicity), the reader is encouraged to visit Dr. Simoncini’s site You’ll find much background information and research findings there incl. explanatory videos, a page giving how-to instructions for using sodium bicarbonate, etc. Sodium bicarbonate powder, thanks to its long history of both internal and external use by humans, is available in most any drugstore, supermarket and pharmacy.

  1. Hi, Tracey,

    Thanks for this post about Dr. Simoncini. I also saw the video that Marc sent to our blogg from You Tube where he was giving an interview. Anyway, the reason I’m making a comment on this, is because I have a bit of an update on Dr. Simoncini’s clinic in Rome, Italy.

    While I was at my doctor’s getting a Vitamin C IV, a woman from Tucson who had just been diagnosed with breast cancer was talking about Dr. Simoncini. After hearing about him and reading his book, she called Italy and made an appointment for a consultation with him and, if necessary, she would stay in Italy for his treatment.

    Well, before her appointment, Dr. Simoncini called her and told her that his clinic had been shut down and even he could not get into his clinic. He called her to let her know that he was still willing to treat her but she could not be treated at his clinic. And, from what she was saying, it was the Italian government that shut him down.

    Now, Dr. Simoncini is a trained, regular oncologist, who has treated cancer for years… starting out the way he was trained in medical school and using standard treatments of surgery, radiation and chemo. But, it sounds like the pharmaceutical and insurance companies have the same power in Europe as they do here in the U.S.

    Anyway, I just want to let anyone who sees this blog know that right now, they can’t go to his clinic. I have not been to his website so maybe he has posted something there.

    If I get another update on Dr. Simoncini, I’ll let you know.

  2. For the benefit of all cancer patients contemplating treatment with sodium bicarbonate as a cure, please read this first. Contrary to what Simoncini tells us, research into the efficacy of baking soda as a cure for cancer has not been supressed. As a matter of fact, quite some research has been done into this, but it turned out that as a cure for cancer, baking soda is completely useless.
    See this to find out for yourself:

    Also, research has clearly shown that the fungus candida albicans is NOT the cause of cancer. On his web site Simoncini refers to research that he claims shows practically all cancers have the fungus candida albicans inside them. But reseach shows no such thing at all, as is shown in the research that is evaluated in this comment by an MD/scientist:

    On behalf of all cancer patients, I thank you for placing this comment. It could save lives.
