Did this 'Quack' Find the Cure for Cancer?
The great advantage of knowing the prime cause of a disease is that it can then be attacked logically and over a broad front. ~ Dr. Otto Warburg
Is there really a 100% natural cure for cancer with a long track record of total cancer remissions? One that costs mere pennies per day? That's what fans of the Simoncini approach claim. Let's take a look. . .
Continued below. . .
The Roman 'Quack' who refused to take 'no' for an answer
An Italian doctor, Dr. Tullio Simoncini, was a trained surgeon, oncologist, endocrinologist, and diabetologist, with a University degree in philosophy. In contrast to many of his colleagues, he dared to follow his passion to help people get well.
He was troubled by those he saw suffering from cancer. And he was disturbed by what he viewed as the medical community's blanket acceptance that cancer is 'incurable'. After all, the 'genetics' paradigm was 80 years old, and had never been proven — and the billions of dollars spent on chemotherapy and irradiation were doing nothing to improve survival rates.
Dr. Simoncini contended that psoriasis, an incurable disease, is caused by a fungus, and this inspired him to think that perhaps cancer, another incurable disease, could also be caused by a fungus.
There's some evidence for his belief.
The hidden cause of cancer…
Many works now document the presence of fungi in cancer patients' tissues, especially in terminal patients.
Of all the fungi that cause diseases in humans, proponents of this theory say that Candida is the sole agent responsible for tumors — as well as other serious illnesses, such as septicemia. Candida is always present in the tissue of cancer patients.
Fungi also cause tumors in the plant and insect kingdoms.
Simoncini says most people, including doctors, underestimate the damage that opportunistic fungi can — and will — inflict.
In a contest between fungi and you — the fungi will always win. They establish permanent, parasitic colonies. These colonies spread widely all through the body and yet they're able to communicate with one another in amazing ways. They're able to dominate other organisms.
This invasion goes on without your knowledge, unless you pay attention to warning signs and take action. Even if you do show the warning signs, most doctors will tell you the problem is just local (for instance, bad digestion or a skin rash), rather than systemic (i.e. affecting your whole body).Candida flourishes in dark warm places — evidenced by women with vaginitis and men with 'jock itch'.
Your immune system — when it detects a fungal enemy — tries to eradicate it before it can establish high-growth colonies. Unfortunately, a compromised immune system may be unable to do that. Fungi can bypass your epithelia and immune system and penetrate deeply into your connective tissue… causing a biological reaction that tries to encapsulate the fungus — to form a container around it. However, the fungus colony not only explodes in that location, but aggressively pursues new habitats (metastasis).
Fungi mutate into different shapes throughout their life cycle — shedding their cell wall to become nearly invisible under a microscope… one reason fungal infections can't be detected in blood culture until the patient is nearly dead.
Once Candida invades, your organs try to defend themselves by hyper-producing cells to encase the fungal colonies — which are simultaneously trying to totally colonize every inch of your body.
At first, you're able to send mature cells to contain the fungi, now a differentiated tumor. But when fungus colonies become more powerful and your tissues become exhausted, they revert to 'simpler' forms that don't require the higher-level functions of, say, your healthy lung cells.
Advocates of this cancer theory say it's always the same highly-adaptive Candida attacking different tissues — each time mutating and adapting itself to its new environment. Scientists think Aspergillus is a variation of Candida.
If cancer's caused by a fungus, how do you treat it?
It all comes down to oxygen...
As we've often reported, cancer cells thrive in a low- or no-oxygen environment.
Cancer cell growth is initiated by fermentation, triggered by the absence of oxygen at the cellular level… in an acidic body. Oxygen cannot stick to your blood cells if your blood is acid. While oxygen can neutralize acid, the acid prevents oxygen from accessing the tissues in need of it.
Plus, if you're acidic, carbon dioxide can't move out, so it builds up in your tissues, leading to cell death.
Alkaline solutions are the opposite — they provide essential oxygen to your tissues.
That's the basis of Dr. Simoncini's sodium bicarbonate protocol… otherwise known as baking soda.
It's like cyanide for cancer cells…
Sodium bicarbonate shocks your cancer cells with massive amounts of oxygen. It's like cyanide attacking them. Tumors die when exposed to so much oxygen.
Sodium bicarbonate shrinks cancer masses and does it fast — in about 4-5 days for a two to four centimeter mass. In fact, some patients reportedly experience complete remission within 5 days.
Sodium bicarbonate can be administered three ways: by mouth, with an aerosol, or intravenously.
The more hard-to-reach cancers are treated by positioning catheters directly into the artery that nourishes the tumor, allowing high doses of sodium bicarbonate to enter the deepest recesses of the organism. Today it's even possible to reach cerebral masses without surgical intervention, in a completely painless way.
Advocates say most tumors can be treated effectively with baking soda therapy — except for bone cancer, due to the lack of blood flow to the bones.
A 2009 study showed sodium bicarbonate increases the pH of tumors, and reduces metastases and lymph node involvement (in breast cancer).1
The therapy is said to be extremely effective, painless, has no side effects, and is very low risk. With catheterization, there's a small risk of infection.
It's also cheap, at least in terms of the equipment and materials required. Catheters cost a bit more, but oral treatment costs mere pennies per day.
Now for the downside: Application via catheter, applied directly to the tumor, can be provided only by a mainstream doctor. Most won't be willing to provide such a treatment. Also, full dosages cannot be administered to those with severe heart, kidney, and liver problems.
Dr. Simoncini's first patient achieved amazing recovery
While there are countless testimonials to Dr. Simoncini's protocol available online, here's one of the early accounts, in his own words from an interview.2
One of the first patients I treated was an 11-year-old child, a case which immediately indicated that I was on the right track. The child arrived in a coma at the paediatric haematology ward around 11:30 in the morning, with a clinical history of leukaemia. Because of the child's disease he had been taken from a small town in Sicily to Rome, through the universities of Palermo and Naples, where he underwent several chemotherapy sessions.
Why, then, do anti-fungal drugs NOT work?
None of the antifungal drugs on the market share the effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate because they cannot penetrate tumor masses. And fungi resist these drugs by quickly mutating into a different form.
What's more, these drugs harm YOU… enabling the fungi to prosper in the wake of your weakened immune system.
Sodium bicarbonate, on the other hand, reportedly spreads in all directions and fungi cannot easily resist it — largely because it works so fast to disintegrate them that they can't adapt to defend themselves.
Therefore, a strong dosage should be used continuously, without interruption, for at least 7-8 days for the first treatment cycle. A mass of 2-4 cm begins to regress consistently from the 3rd to 4th day, and collapses from the 4th to the 5th day.
So is this the 'magic bullet' we've all prayed for?
Simoncini could make perfectly good sense — but don't expect to hear about it from your doctor! To be honest, I'm not sure how effective it is, so please look at this as a report rather than a recommendation. This is the first time we've looked into it at Cancer Defeated.
My colleagues and I have visited many, many alternative cancer clinics and heard virtually nothing about sodium bicarbonate. One German doctor did mention that he administered it by IV.
Not everyone is a wide-eyed admirer of Simoncini. I asked my good friend Bill Henderson what he thinks. Bill is the author of our Special Report How to Cure Almost Any Cancer at Home for $5.15 a Day and the soft cover book Cancer-Free. He told me:
"I have met Simoncini, heard him talk and read his book. I am simply not impressed. Two of my readers have gone to Rome, paid the $30,000 to have him treat them and had no results. Their reports were very negative — shabby and unclean facility, Simoncini a heavy smoker and coffee drinker, no real testimonials available. He is basically an oncologist who feels he has discovered the 'magic bullet' to erase cancer."
We plan to follow up and learn as much as we can, and I'll be reporting on this again in the future.
Advocates of this approach advise patients to add 1-2 teaspoons of aluminum-FREE baking soda and 1 teaspoon of pure maple syrup to 1 cup of water, and drink. Some sources say to heat it first. The 'sugar' acts as a delivery mechanism to hard-to-reach Candida cells. Marcus Sircus, Ac OMD suggests doing this every 2 hours for no more than 2 weeks.3
Please note… it's not a good idea to undertake an ongoing regimen of this protocol if your body is already alkaline. However, most cancer patients are acidic.
The need to make the body alkaline is a common thread running through many natural cancer treatment plans. Some of the best cancer treatments, such as the Gerson therapy, share the common 'glue' of a better understanding of alkalinity, fungi, molds and yeasts.
Dr. Gerson stated that when cancer patients came to him, he noticed common diseases among them — osteoarthritis, high or low blood pressure, chronic sinus trouble, and other chronic infections, which he believed were caused by fungi or inflammation exacerbated by a diet rich in fungi, molds, and yeasts.
Additionally, tobacco is loaded with fungi and yeasts. No wonder they tell you to quit smoking.
A word about anti-fungal foods…
The following foods are natural anti-fungals. I think it's a good idea to make them a regular part of your diet even if fungus is not the main cause of cancer:
Of course, the typical American diet will undermine even these strategies. It stands to reason that if you eat foods that allow Candida to overpopulate your body, you will get sick. If you want to get well you'll need to eat a 'Candida diet' as a lifestyle.
Experts don't totally agree about what a Candida diet includes (or excludes), but these are the basic points…
The Candida diet effectively starves fungi by denying them the foods they need to grow colonies. If you're now up to speed, you'll recognize the recommendations above as the standard anti-cancer diet. This diet or something close to it is recommended by many, many experts on alternative cancer treatment. It's not just the "Simoncini diet."
Plenty of experts don't agree with the Simoncini theory that fungus is main cause of cancer. Some buy into the acid-alkaline theory of cancer causation and others finger sugar as the main culprit. When it comes to what you eat, it doesn't matter which theory you choose: the diet above fits all three theories.
Note: To avoid eating molds or fungus from nuts, seeds, veggies and fruits, make a solution of 15-30 drops of GSE in 2 cups water, and spray or soak them for up to 10 minutes. How necessary is this? I don't know. Not all fungi are alike. There are tens of thousands of different strains and I doubt if many of them are implicated in cancer. But if you want to be totally safe, this tip will help you prevent eating molds and fungus.
Be forewarned… experts say there are 79 different toxins released by the metabolism and die-off of Candida — the type of fungus you DO have to worry about — the one that's implicated in cancer and other diseases. So as you start waging war on Candida you may experience unpleasant 'side effects' when you change your diet — headaches, nausea, fatigue. These are known as the 'herxheimer reaction' — caused by the release of toxins as the pathogenic microbes die off. This will pass.
Antibiotics and probiotics…
All major clinical textbooks on fungal infections agree that use of antibiotics are a leading cause of fungal infections in people.4 It kills all bacteria — the good with the bad.
After all, the word antibiotic means 'against life'.
That's why you should avoid factory farmed meats, poultry and fish… as well as your doctor's prescription. Any antibiotic prescription should be followed with a rigorous regimen of probiotics (which means 'for life'). Probiotic supplements are readily available in health food stores. Read the label to see how many billions of live cultures the brand contains — the more the better. The one I take contains 40 billion live cultures per capsule.
Probiotics need to be refrigerated. I don't recommend ordering them by mail. Despite what some marketers claim, it's very doubtful the live cultures survive shipment. I'm pretty sure they won't survive sitting on the tarmac at an airport in July, for example.
Taking a regular probiotic with a variety of probiotic strains is a valuable strategy to strengthen your immune system and control fungus growth.
Medical 'Establishment' demonizes Simoncini…
Unfortunately, Dr. Simoncini may be yet another brilliant doctor who's been stripped of his medical license for his revolutionary and simple ideas of how to cure 'profit-making' diseases.
Many people refuse to believe this happens to GOOD doctors, since 'everyone knows' you are obviously a liability to human life if you're stripped of your medical license.
Believe it. I know personally of several good alternative doctors who were arrested, hounded by the authorities and, in some cases, lost their right to practice. And I've heard of many others although I haven't met all of them.
The real reason Dr. Simoncini was ousted was because, as an oncologist, he dared to administer sodium bicarbonate — a totally harmless substance — instead of lethal chemotherapy.
The medical 'intelligentsia' employs suppression, plots, defamatory TV reports (branding as a quack), judicial attacks, and police harassment — against any doctor who dares to challenge their profit centers5...
From what I can learn, Simoncini's in litigation to get his license reinstated… Plus, he writes and speaks to spread the word that…
If cancer is caused by a fungus the cure may be simple
Yes, the jury may still be out until more clinical studies are run. But I certainly think it's worth pursuing… at least orally, and possibly in combination with other effective protocols. It certainly won't kill you like chemo will.
