Alternative Cancer Treatment: Maple Syrup and Baking PowderS hayes writes on

… I cannot guarantee that the information it is accurate – or if the remedy works, however, if I, or anyone I knew was suffering, I would want to know of every potential avenue of assistance.

Jim Kelmun – a 75 year old former truck driver, has been preparing remedies to assist cancer sufferers since 1954. He has treated 200 terminal cancer sufferers, and claims that 185 of them lived for at least a further 15 years.

Oddly, Jim has been threatened with jail by authorities unless he stops administering his remedy – as he has no medical degree!!!

The Remedy – Maple Syrup and Baking Powder (Bicarbonate of soda)

* Mix 1 part baking soda to 3 parts maple syrup

* Heat rigorously in a pan for 5 minutes

* Take two teaspoons of the mixture per day for the first week and then one teaspoon per day for weeks two and three – the remedy should not be continued after three weeks

Try to get aluminium free baking powder (from organic / health food shops) and pure 100% Grade B maple syrup.

Dr Mark Sircus has examined the results and comments as follows:-

“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 grow”

“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 cell.”

An almost identical remedy has been suggested by Italian Dr Simoncini – who claims to treat cancer as if it were a fungus.

    I’d be interested to know how the baking powder and maple syrup gets through stomach acid and the rest of the digestive system to arrive at the cancer cells still as a maple syrup and baking powder mixture. As far as I’m aware, drugs are designed to get through the digestive system and deliver their key ingredients to cells, but maple syrup and baking powder aren’t. I’m not a scientist, but even if I had cancer, I wouldn’t waste any precious time trying baking powder and maple syrup (no matter what grade it is).

      When you get the cancer which i’m sure you will you will have a diffrent attitude.
      Don’t try to kill peoples FAITH

      1. Intrachresodist

        When it becomes part of “Standard Cancer Treatment”, not “Alternative Cancer Treatment” is when people should start using it. It’s very simple to do: if the
        method proves effective through controlled clinical trials then it will become part of standard medicine.

        Until then it is dangerous and irresponsible to promote these untested, anecdotal, “alternative” miracle cures because they may cause people to avoid treatment with the best available proven effectiveness (i.e. “medicine”).

        1. Lynn Johnson

          Intrachresodist, mrs. Dailey shot down what you just said. If there was big money in syrup and backing powder the pharmaceutical would be all up in it, you should know everyone else does, that the pharmaceutical like medicine they can make for 13 cents and charge $860 dollars for it . Talk about dangerous what about cimo and radiation, how many people do you thank has been killed with this stuff. Come on, wake up dude who do you thank is going to try clinical trials for something you can go to the store and buy. Sounds like this fellow that put this out has done the trial for them. I understand the pharmaceutical people have made some good stuff, I’am not questioning that, but if I had cancer I would try anything that I thought would get rid of it with in reason, I would also seek professional help. I can’t see what maple syrup and baking soda could harm, you eat them both everyday.Thanks just my thoughts and feelings, have a blessed day.

        Below you say “faith is the main cure for cancer”.

        If that is true, then let them have faith in standard medical treatments.

    1. Kenneth

      In the GNC OR Health food stores it is called baking powder with no aluminum baking powder has baking soda contents.
      If you or someone you know has cancer it cost you about $5.00 for 100% grade b maple syrup and $5.00 for the bag of baking powder with no aluminum.
      This treatment should not be used for more than three weeks at a time. During the first week no more than two TEAspoons a day of baking soda should be taken orally. During the second and third week no more than one TEAspoon a day of baking soda should be taken orally. Only under the care of a medical practitioner should these maximum internal doses be exceeded.

      For skin cancers and other external cancers (inlcuding a rectal enema), where the baking soda solution comes into direct contact with the cancer, this restriction does not apply.
      Did you know that the AVERAGE orthodox cancer treatment costs $350,000? This treatment costs about $3 and in most cases is far more effective than the $350,000 treatments!

      This treatment was developed in Italy by an oncologist and uses baking soda or sodium bicarbonate.

      This treatment is primarily used for cancer of the digestive tract, including cancers of the throat, colon, intestines, rectal area, and other cancers in between.

      Cancers outside of the digestive tract generally need a health practitioner to inject the baking soda solution.

      This web page is an interesting interview with Dr. Simoncini himself:

      1. Bull

        Must be aluminum free baking soda – – – arm & hammer does not qualify – – order it online from a health store

    2. Kay

      Baking power and baking soda are NOT the same thing, nor are they interchangeable in cooking ‘OR in cancer treatment.

      This cure is NOT about having faith…. it is about people with cancer who have used it and had success. go on youtube and watch lots of people who are promoting it. faith is faith. good to have, but NOT necessary to have this treatment work.

      And you are correct, WHO would bother to do trails. Many many cures are not medicine, have worked for hundreds if not thousands of years, and MANY prescription medications are designed after these ‘natural cures’.

    I think that whoever believes this crap works should be encouraged to use it, so that they all die and allow the rest of us humans with intelligence to live. Really, do you even think that makes sense? If it does, then please try it.

      Squashculls you are a very sick person.
      you know what goes around comes around and you should not make these statements.
      Cancer patients all over the world have the right to live and and faith is the main cure for cancer 2 teaspoos baking powder and maple syrup and lots of faith will go a long way.
      you talk about intelligence you have none by getting on here and tring to kill the faith of very sick cancer patients.
      You will have to answer to GOD for what you said.

    2. dmd

      squashculls. you lack the basic understanding of the human body. cancer is meant to be kept a mystery so that big drug companies can pump poisons and radiations into us for an incredibly high price.
      cancer is a very natural occurance, for which there is a very natural solution. hope you never have to spend time a lot of time in a cancer ward to figure out that what they are doing there is not only
      torture, but highly ineffective. read about acid waist and alkalinity. look up natural cures for cancer, and it will lead you to the truth.

    3. cheryl

      I think if that is the only opinion you have you should keep it to yourself.Some people have exhausted all tx and sent home with hospice and they have done this and it makes them have more energy and they aren’t as nauseated.It seems to help the digestive tract after md’s have killed it with pain meds.You sound like a real jackass and I don’t understand anyone saying that unless they work for the drug companies or make their money in some way from drugs.Do you actually know anyone who has tried this?

  3. Barnabas

    Have faith in God that He is the Ulitmate Healer will do great things in being healed. Faith cannot be explained but it is thro’ have a real relationship with God know that He is the Healer. Jesus healed many when He was on earth and now the power is thro’ the Holy spirit.

    Ken – you are an encourager. Faith with action is dead. Knowing that God will work thro the natural remedy and putting that faith in Him will move mountains. The previous writer has been very unkind to make such comments online. If there is nothing good to say, then keep it to her/himself rather than to discourage the ill and needy. God bless and may all cancer suffers be blessed too.

    Jesus is the Only Way where there is no other way. His peace and joy in all situations will help to cope with any problems. Thro’ prayer and faith in the
    True and Living God will make life much easier to bear.

    Sometimes you get to the clinic, and they don’t have the cure for the ailment that you are suffering from; sometimes the only way to find cure is to go to the old man next door who’s got this strange thing that he does with leaves and a keg of oil


    Herbs & all forms of natural healing are best used after you talk with a doctor to see how far your illness has traveled. Personally, doctors tend to treat the illness but not the cure. The real maple syrup & real baking soda does work. It all depends on how much faith you have in natural healing. We rely on doctors so much we have put aside the recipes of our past generations for home remadies & most consider them fantasy cures. Personally, I would much rather try the natural healing elixers before a doctor burned out my insides with radiation.

  6. Cindy

    I’ve read so much about this natural remedy,and I have a feeling it can work.
    But I’m still confused. I’m trying to help my mother who has breast cancer (again).
    This time, she needs to take chemotherapy. She already had her first session of chemo and I don’t want her to take all the 6 sessions… I’m desperately asking how the maple syrup and baking soda can help breast cancer and how it should be used…
    Plsss let me know..

    1. Xeno Post author

      Most of us will either eventually get cancer or will have a loved one get it. Some cancers are caused by a virus and this seems to be true of some breast cancer. The problem is, “breast cancer” is not just one thing. Our methods of describing all cancers are flawed. Scientists are working now on better diagnostic methods so we can start attacking the actual problem, viral or otherwise, rather than the location of the problem in the body. What can you do now? Try human breast milk and a few other things that can’t hurt, but chemo may be necessary too. Get a few different opinions from different doctors.

  7. Cindy

    Or if there are other natural remedies she can use, pls let me know…
    People tend to be pessimistic, but only when you have a family member with cancer, you will know how it feels, and how much you would like to help, even though we’re not doctors…

      hi , my mum has cancer grade 4 of the liver gallblader and lung ,she was basically told that they couldn’t do anything for her here chemo was pointless, we looked into Johana Budwig cancer diet which is worth looking into, if money isnt an issue it is worth looking at Klinik st george , germany , which is where my mum is receiving treatment , she had 3wk treatment sofar and is showing signs of improvement, diet is alot to do with it although they do hypothermia therapy which is not available here, hope this helps

      1. Kenny

        The use of hypothermia is in deed being used in the states. Cancer Treatment Centers of America use both eastern and western medicine to cure cancer. Along with Chemo & Radiation they also incorporate a strict diet along with herbal supplements, hypothermia, and accupuncture which is done in a way as to kick your immune system in the ass and tell it to do it’s job.

  8. Ed

    I do not think you would take Baking Powder. There is much difference between Baking Powder and Baking Soda (bicarbonate of Soda

    Baking soda is pure sodium bicarbonate. When baking soda is combined with moisture and an acidic ingredient (e.g., yogurt, chocolate, buttermilk, honey), the resulting chemical reaction produces bubbles of carbon dioxide that expand under oven temperatures, causing baked goods to rise. The reaction begins immediately upon mixing the ingredients, so you need to bake recipes which call for baking soda immediately, or else they will fall flat!

    Baking powder contains sodium bicarbonate, but it includes the acidifying agent already (cream of tartar), and also a drying agent (usually starch). And different brands contain various other chemicals.

  9. haidie

    my mom has a metastatic breast cancer, i want to ask if anybody here try sodium bicarbonate..what is the ratio of the this solution?please help me…

  10. Wilma Balentine

    Dad was diagnose with cancer just recently.He has it in his lungs bones liver, pretty much all over him. He had knots that have been coming on him for a couple of months before he was told they were cancer. He was told if he didnt take chemo, he might live 6 to 9 months.Right now he is not taking the chemo. He has been taking the baking soda and maple syrup for about 2 weeks now and we dont know if it is helping or not yet. We are very hopeful though. We also have him on the mms drops mixed with lemon juice. We have heard good things about that also. Has anyone out there had any good results with this combination.Right now he’s taking 2 pain pills each 1 in the morning and 1 at nite. He’s pretty weak at times, but he is still up and about quite a bit. Gets real tired real quick. Hoping he will be back to his old routine soon. He’s 81 years old, and until about 2 months ago he was doing just about anything he wanted to do. With God’s help and these natural remedies hopefully he will be back to his old self soon.

    1. Sue

      My dad was recently diagnosed with pancreatic & liver cancer. Was told there was no hope, to call hospice. I’m just reading about the baking soda and maple syrup. What are your results? God Bless.

      1. Doc Wally

        Sue, this is a surprise as I am not a seasoned veteran on the maple syrup/baking soda chat. I will say this that what ever you do for yourself is dependent on your own conviction whether it be main stream medical or alternative. If you father is open to something other than the medical barrage of toxins then you have a chance of something else working, if he is not willing to commit to this or anything else than he must follow his MD’s recommendations.
        I personally am using the maple syrup cure plus turmeric ( concentrated form 500mg/day)and I eliminated sugar and most carbs from my diet. The last part is the most important in my own view as cancer cells feed on sugar it would be logical to eliminate the simple sugars and greatly restrict the complex ones. This is my own view and it has been working for me.
        Good luck and if nothing else enjoy the time you have with your father..

    Does anyone know the weight distribution dosage for the maple syrup and baking soda?

    Would an 80 lbs 85 year old get the same dose as a
    250 lbs 35 year old?

    The two teaspoons baking soda could be too much for an elderly 80 lb person and not enough for a 250 lb person?

  12. DogMa

    Studying alternative cancer remedies this year. Baking SODA (sodium bicarbonate) has it’s merits – it is based on cancer being a fungus (tumors are covered in goopy white stuff they used to think was fat but now are finding it’s fungus). I’ve recently heard the baking soda/maple syrup or other sugary mix is a scam. It was thrown out there to show that baking soda doesn’t work. The syrup will negate what the baking soda will do (cancer cells eat sugar to grow and survive). Baking soda alone, done properly, can help depending on what type of cancer you have. As with any remedy or medicine, do your research. The inventor of this therapy right now is considered to be: Dr. Simonichi. He has some good videos on You Tube where you can see the cancer before and after. Another good site for good remedies and explanations is:

    If you have cancer, stop eating sugar and white refined flour unless you want to consider cancer your pet you feed daily. Cancer Tutor explains the best diets for cancer patients who want to help their immune system cure them. See a naturopath (N.D. = an M.D. with natural health training). There are many things you can do for cancer but you need to find the right ones for your condition. Look into anti-angiogenisis (mushrooms – especially Reiki, Maitake, Agaricus Blazei ), green tea and Vascustatin or angioblock (bindweed) which is 100x stronger than shark’s cartilage. Add homeopathy – it works on a deep cellular level which will help zap the foundational source of the disturbance.

    Cancer is not a disease, it is a symptom. Cancer patients who use western medicine die of chemo/radiation poisoning, not cancer. Look on line for the success percentages of people who survive cancer after the 5 year mark w/western practices. On average it’s 1-3% for the big cancers.

  13. DogMa

    We have cancer cells in our bodies every day. Our immune system knows how to kill them. If you have cancer, you have an immune system disorder. Boost your immune system! Exercise and diet are critical. Do your due diligence. It’s hard work but it’s worth it to get well!

  14. alternative cures

    Our nation is drowning in an ocean of mis-information about health, wellness and nutrition. It is our responsibility to take charge of our health no one else can do it for us, though to take charge of your health may require rising up and “breaking through” the “barriers” imposed on us.

  15. Anne

    Also look into apricot and peach seeds…. the Hunza people live long and have never had cancer unless they leave their areas and eat the foods we eat in western diets like mcdonalds, burger king, etc. good luck to all. we are all one. people thought jesus had cures, he just gave them the right foods to aid their sicknesses…. people used to think scurvy was a disease, it was a deficiency of absorbic acid found in vitamin c, it’s not contagious like cancer is not contagious therefore, eat the b17 vitamins in apricot and peach seeds and it will cure cancer and feed your body full of only organic vegetables and fruits. do not eat burnt or greasy foods. and lastly, enjoy life!

    Question on how to prepare the Baking Soda/maple syrup. I mix 4 parts grade B maple syrup with 1 part pure baking soda in a sauce pan at moderate heat for 20 minutes stirring constantly. What i get after cooling is maple syrup on top with the baking powder on the bottom. I have tried this with several variations from longer time on low heat to shorter time on higher heat with the same outcome, Any suggestions?

    1. Sandi k

      Not sure if adding 4 parts maple syrup could be why? I’ve never made it. Plan to though so looking forward to replys to your question.

      1. Doc Wally

        The recipe calls for 1 part baking soda to 4 parts grade B Maple syrup. This is the recipe that has been used for many years now, I only want someone in the know to guide me thru the process.

  17. AMarie

    I think the most important aspect of this treatment is the heat fusion between the maple syrup and baking soda. I use common sense… The cancer cells feed off the sugar mix with the salt acting as a trogan horse killing the cancer. The says to take 3 parts maplesyrup per 1 part baking soda. I simply mix together 1 T of Grade A maple syrup and 1 teaspoon of Bob Redmill’s brand baking soda to a hot bowl of oatmeal; the heat fusion occurs setting for 5 minutes.{it is not meant to exceed hot tap temps of 120 degrees} no need to go through all the trouble of heating separately. I had a mammogram/ultrasound showing I was filled with many cists/hardened nodules I had felt in my breasts; within 10 days of the above treatment of only one teaspoon per day of baking soda; they dissolved and disappeared. So I know the solution works!

    1. Xeno Post author

      Cool, congratulations. Also, it is a little known fact that we each get and cure cancer every day, as long as our immune systems are functioning correctly. A tumor only forms when the immune system is overwhelmed, so take care to avoid environments and substances that cause cancer and do things that strengthen your immune system: get enough sleep, exercise daily, eat healthy food, drink good water, have regular sex, reduce stress, be social, meditate, laugh, be a little pessimistic, walk in nature, get enough sun, etc.

      1. AMarie

        Oh, my cists weren’t cancerous, but my doctor was astonished to see them disappear, telling me to keep up whatever I was doing; Even though I eat healthy, and have a very strong immune system, this can happen going through menopause. I say it helps balance the ph taken from time to time, and is an awesome prevention of infection. I originally got the idea I think led of the Lord to watch; “Love Takes WIng”. to combine sugar and salt with an iv, as hospitals use a similar solution for the sick who cannot get enough nutrients unable to keep food down with dehydration; This is alot less expensive though than checking into emergency; and receiving the iv for hundreds of dollars! BTW; I also powder myself with the baking soda, every time I shower.And use grape seed oil roll-on; as well good for skin, and apply a heat compress ~ along with a plethora of God given natural things He provided in nature. & yes, I know it is a matter of all you suggested combined with having my faith in God to help reduce everyday stress. Thanks!

  18. AMarie

    Pardon, I meant to provide the prescribed instructions from the for those who want instant verification….

    The Dose

    Take one, two or three teaspoons daily. Never take them at the same time, always spread them out by at least two hours.

    Start at one teaspoon per day and in a few days build up to two teaspoons. It is your choice as to whether to build up to three teaspoons daily, stay at two teaspoons daily or drop back to one teaspoon daily. Do not take more than 3 teaspoons daily.

    Normally, only one teaspoon a day is taken… But because the Kelmun mixture is 1/4th baking soda, taking it two or three times a day is perfectly safe for an adult!!

    Original Newspaper article is found here I thought you all may all enjoy seeing… I asked for wisdom in this; and thank the good Lord Jesus for supplying the answer through prayer!
