Case 1: A 70-year old female patient with diagnosis of stomach adenocarcinoma confirmed by commonly accepted oncological tests (TAK, biopsy, etc.). Two days before the scheduled operation, she accepts the suggestion of trying a less sanguinary approach, and leaves the hospital. For the period of a month, she is administered sodium bicarbonate (one teaspoon in a glass of water) to ingest half an hour before breakfast (that is, on an empty stomach) for the purpose of maximising the effect. After about two months normalisation of the gastric function takes place with attenuation at first, and eventual loss of all the symptomatology related to neoplastic pathology (lack of appetite, digestion troubles, fatigue, lipothymic events, etc.). After an endoscopic examination performed one year after the beginning of therapy, the total remission of neoplastic formation is ascertained and the patient refuses further investigation. The patient is still alive today, 15 years after the treatment.
Case 2: A 67-year-old patient with a long history of gastric ulcer is diagnosed with stomach cancer and a gastrectomy is suggested. The patient, believing his disease is just an exacerbation of the ulcer, wants to find an alternative to surgery. He therefore accepted a therapy with sodium bicarbonate as in case 1. The therapy determines in a few months the regression of the neoplastic symptomatology. After about 18 months, during which no check-up is performed, upon the return of symptomatology, treatment is resumed as above. Gastric functionality is quickly re-established and maintained for about eight years, after which contact with the patient is lost.
Case 3: A 58-year-old patient with stomach carcinoma is diagnosed through histological examination performed on endoscopical sample. The patient chooses not to undergo the conventional therapies and he decides to accept a therapy similar to that in the two preceding cases. The resulting effect is a normalisation of symptomatology for about three years, that is, until there are no further medical check-ups.
Case 4: In September, 1983, a 71-year-old patient undergoes a hospital check-up in a serious condition of emaciation caused by a large weight loss (about 15 Kgs.) which occurred over the prior few months. Once a stomach neoplastic condition has been diagnosed, and after the layout of a combined oncological therapeutic scheme, the relatives are informed. The relatives are also informed of the difficulties and risks of such treatment, to be administered to such a debilitated patient. The wife decides to refuse the conventional approach and decides to bring the husband home and try the “harmless” therapy of baking soda, which is administered in a lower dosage than in the preceding cases. That restores appetite and a satisfactory digestive functionality. For about eight months the patient has difficulty regaining weight. After this, the improvement is more and more evident, with the almost complete regaining of the lost weight (within 24 months) and a considerable improvement of the patient’s general condition.
