Blind as a bat,

but without their sonar equipment, 

he groped forward

into the murky gloom……


So as I said last month.  My urologist went through the usual medical treatments,  radiation, (burn), removal, (incontinence), hormone (unknown long term consequences) etc. although come to think of it that last comment can apply to all of the above current medical treatments.

Come back for the next thrilling chapter !! I said.  Well you are going to be disappointed.  There just are no thrills !

Countless men and their wives have written over the years to say they, or their men folk, have prostate cancer.  What shall we do ? 

I could never tell them what to do.  How could I ? All I could ever do was advise what I thought I would do.  But obviously I wasn’t even sure about that.  Many diagnosed with cancer of any sort just want the thing excised, as swiftly as possible and elect for the surgeons knife. Cancer for them is the psyco killer in the bathroom about to stab them through the shower curtain. A terror to be lived through every time they go into the bathroom.

I always felt I would not feel like that and said so; and so it has proved to be.  I guess almost 20 years of reading your letters and immersing myself on prostate matters has innured me to any concerns. I know that cancer is ‘just’ a bunch of cells which are not following instructions. 

I just want to corral those cells, or is the term kettle now ?  Dealing with those cells alone and not blasting my body with treatments which destroy healthy cells and probably disrupt my immune system. 

The great thing about prostate cancer is that you have a little time. Time to think, to research, to plan, but above all time to realise there is no need to panic, and certainly no need to make hasty decisions. More importantly no need to allow anyone else, not your wife, your family, or your medics to make a decision for you.

None of them, not even your medic, I believe, has or can gain the knowledge, that the cancer patient can, to initiate a treatment of choice, a treatment that he/she knows from that background knowledge gained is the correct treatment for them.


Patient consulting two Medics who arm in arm offer him the Health Service prostate cancer treatments.  
Like me this patient does not seem convinced of the value of the advice.


Surgeon.  “I can take out the prostate which will remove all traces of your cancer contained within it.”

Oncologist. “We can use hormone injections and radiotherapy which will kill the cancer cells.”

None of them, not even your medic, I believe, has or can gain the knowledge, that the cancer patient can, to initiate a treatment of choice, a treatment that he/she knows from that background knowledge gained is the correct treatment for them.

It is no good just reading books about chemo, or about surgery though.  Seek out books written by those who have beaten cancer.  Jane Plants book about her fight with breast cancer, and subsequent books on prostate cancer.  Check out the internet, with sites like or like

If Bobby can be cured by a fathers iron resolve, or the farmer in New Zealand a victim of swine flu only last month who was about to have his life support switched off but was saved by ascorbate IV, but only after the family insisted, then why not look elsewhere apart from conventional medicine.

If you believe that the billions spent on swine flu vaccine over a year ago was money well spent. If you believe that man is responsible for climate change. If you believe that pharmaceutical companies will one day find a cure for cancer. If you believe that all the money collected by people for cancer charities to progress research will find a cure then you need to stop reading this – NOW.

The treatments I am advocating today are not mainstream. My self treatment is an initial attempt to influence any cancer growth.  They produce no side effects and have no toxicity. There are other more potent treatments if these do not make an impression.  Although as I say, it is very early days yet and we are starting from a very low PSA reading.

I am not recommending this or any other treatments I discuss or use on myself.  We each have to assess treatments and come to a personal decision.  But you can only do that if you check out what is available.

My January PSA test turned out to be 1.9   I guessed at least it meant that my body had no cancer cells to speak of.  But I could not squeeze a comment from my medics.  It seems to me that the current worries about being sued in court have turned anyone in authority, medical or otherwise, into mutes, willing to nod their heads wisely but unable to commit to any firm outlook or decision making advice.

So I am really no further forward.  My GP did not attempt to turn me from any comments I made about alternative treatments but was happy when I said I would like monthly PSA’s.  It was the only way I could see of tracking any change on my PC. If any. Three monthly checks seemed a long time to go without being in a position to take any positive action. 

So rather than doing a lot or doing nothing I have taken a middle road and am steering a safe course, keeping to smooth seas and avoiding any rocks or shoals.  How you do the latter along the middle of the road I haven’t a clue !  

There are so many possible cancer treatments outside the orthodox medical world that it takes many hours just to get your head around one.  So I am concentrating my main cancer cell attack on Ascorbate Acid and honey and baking soda. 


At least if my Uro eliminated the cancer cells back in December then the ascorbate can sort out other aspects of my bodily ills. This will leave my immune system to concentrate on any new cancer cells which emerge.

The current intention is to carry on with the regime below until I get some movement in my PSA. 

I have spent  hours on the internet and purchased several books and some alternative products not to mention twice as much time reading and marking up passages in the books.

Eventually I drafted out an initial treatment plan.  After all without a plan one goes nowhere and at least I can draft out a second plan as ‘Plan B’.  Yes, I figure it would be comforting to have a plan B. !!

After reading all the many alternative treatments available, well several of them I set out two:-

One was Ascorbate,  (Vitamin C), I am taking approx two gram tablets four time per day that is a total of 8 grams. 

Read up on Ascorbate on the internet.  Also I suggest everyone with an interest reads - Vitamin C: The Real Story, by Steve Hickey and Andrew Saul.

In the book “you will see that megadoses of Vit C have proved to be an effective antibiotic, a nontoxic anticancer agent and also a treatment for heart disease”.

And the second is honey and baking powder. “Honey and what ???!”

Calm down dear !

You will find a great deal of information on these methods on the internet.

I enclose an extract from this site below…….I must confess to using clear very liquid honey rather than maple syrup which I found imparts a harsh taste to the mix.  I also have found that Doves organic Baking Powder appears to work a lot better, to my mind, than other cheaper products. There seems much confusion in regard to baking powder, bicarbonate powder and other similar cooking products.

"The bicarbonate/maple syrup cancer treatment focuses on delivering natural chemotherapy in a way that effectively kills cancer cells but significantly reduces the brutal side effects experienced with most standard chemotherapy treatments. In fact so great is the reduction that the dangers are brought down to zero. Costs, which are a factor for the majority of people, of this particular treatment are nil. (Well not exactly nil, but certainly not expensive. Ed.)

Though this cancer treatment is very inexpensive, do not assume it is not effective. The bicarbonate maple syrup cancer treatment is a very significant cancer treatment every cancer patient should be familiar with and it can easily be combined with other safe and effective natural treatments.

Dr. Tullio Simoncini an Italian Medic, well maybe not any more as I understand he lost his licence to practice, (a firm advocate of bircarbonate, you will find a lot about him if you google his name) acknowledges that cancer cells gobbles up sugar so when you encourage the intake of sugar it’s like sending in a Trojan horse. The sugar is not going to end up encouraging the further growth of the cancer colonies because the baking soda is going to kill the cells before they have a chance to grow.

This treatment is a combination of pure, 100% maple syrup and baking soda.  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. 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 (gently Ed.) for 5 minutes. Take 1 teaspoon daily, is what is suggested by Cancer Tutor but one could probably do this several times a day.

“There is not a tumor on God’s green earth that cannot be licked with a little baking soda and maple syrup.” That is the astonishing claim of controversial folk healer Jim Kelmun who says that this simple home remedy can stop and reverse the deadly growth of cancers. His loyal patients swear by the man they fondly call Dr. Jim and say he is a miracle worker.

“Dr. Jim cured me of lung cancer,” said farmer Ian Roadhouse. “Those other doctors told me that I was a goner and had less then six months to live. But the doc put me on his mixture and in a couple of months the cancer was gone. It did not even show up on the x-rays.”

 Dr. Jim discovered this treatment accidentally somewhere in the middle of the last century when he was treating a family plagued by breast cancer. There were five sisters in the family and four of them had died of breast cancer. He asked the remaining sister if there was anything different in her diet and she told him that she was partial to sipping maple syrup and baking soda.

Since then, reported by a newspaper in Ashville, North Carolina, Dr. Jim dispensed this remedy to over 200 people diagnosed with terminal cancer and amazingly he claims of that number 185 lived at least 15 more years and nearly half enjoyed a complete remission of their disease."

Is this a quack treatment ?  Am I taking in honey which is feeding the cancer cells ?  As no company could patent the treatment none will run trials, after all business is in business to make money not to find a cure which they cannot monopolise.

That means that your guess is as good as mine !!  Much like the toss of a coin really. 

I feel I can be comforted by the excellent evidence of ascobate and as the baking powder costs are minimal and no problem to take orally I will carry on for a time with two strings to my bow !  Not to forget the Quercetin capsules.

Onwards and upwards as they say……..

(Can it really be true that Vitamin C (ascorbate), honey and bicarbonite, 
will cure prostate cancer.)
