Today is December 2nd, which means there are only 23 days until Christmas! I think it’s safe to say that the holiday season is now in full swing! Many people associate this time of year with widespread happiness. All of the department stores certainly deck their halls with a lot more than just bows of holly. Merry Christmas music can be heard playing EVERYWHERE, and commercials on TV tend to have a much more holly theme to them (my favorite are the ads involving talking gingerbread men, they’re just so cute!).
When we are constantly surrounded by these festive displays, it can be very easy to forget about those who, despite the goodhearted atmosphere, do not have the luxury to be completely joyful no matter how much they want to be. Take, for example, those suffering from serious medical conditions. The Christmas season does not provide these people with a pass during the month of December. Unfortunately, any suffering that may occur must still be endured. Obviously, there are MANY serious medical conditions that people are suffering from worldwide, but I want to focus on one that is incredibly prevalent within societies across the globe, most especially here in my own home country, the United States…Cancer.
Whether you live in America, Europe, Africa, Asia or somewhere else entirely, it seems like everyone knows at least one person who has cancer or has had cancer in the past. Personally, I know a handful of people who are currently battling cancer. Some are only acquaintances, a few are family members, but most are close family friends. As I sit here writing about these people, I can’t help but get the same tight feeling in my chest I also got when I first received the news of their diagnoses. Do you know what feeling I’m talking about? The one where 10 different emotions are all trying to co-exist inside you…sad, mad, frustrated, devastated, and confused (in addition to many other emotions).
The most interesting part about this emotional rollercoaster is the fact that the ride is never a lonely one. You and I are not the only ones feeling this way! And I have a hypothesis as to why…the most frustrating part of learning about someone’s cancer diagnosis is that helpless feeling that always seems to accompany this type of news. Helpless because you can’t really do anything to help get rid of the cancer! All you can do is sit by, be supportive, and hope that the chemotherapy or surgery will do its job at eliciting entrance into the remission stage…right? Wrong! There actually is something more you can do to help and it is really quite simple! Share this recipe with whomever you may know to be battling cancer:
Baking Soda & Maple Syrup Cancer Protocol
~ 3 T Grade B Maple Syrup (Be sure to use Organic, Grade B maple syrup because it is the most pure!)
~ 1 T Baking Soda (aluminum-free is best, Arm & Hammer or Bob’s Red Mill are good aluminum-free choices!)
Place all ingredients into a stainless steel sauce pan, stir together, cook over low heat, stirring constantly for 3 minutes. Do not overcook. If cooked for the correct amount of time it will taste like caramel with a strong hint of baking soda. If overcooked, there will be a bit of a bitter aftertaste.
Take 1 teaspoon three times a day or 1 tablespoon twice a day, everyday. It’s best if taken immediately after your meals.
**Side Note: This treatment is not limited to any one kind of cancer, it works for every type of cancer!
My mom originally discovered this recipe when she was dealing with some serious skin cancer and wanted to eradicate the source of the problem, but hoped to avoid surgery since it was located on the side of her face. Let’s be honest here, doctors may have gone to medical school, but judging by the gnarly scars left behind by these procedures, it would appear as though they all skipped class on the day they were supposed to learn how to make small, clean incisions. The reason this particular solution seems to work so well is because cancer feeds on sugar. The maple syrup draws the cancer cells in, and then the baking soda destroys them.

Anyway, the woman my mother got the recipe from was battling an aggressive type of stage 4 cancer located in a major organ, quit her chemotherapy, and decided to try Holistic methods instead. Please understand that I am not recommending for anyone to do exactly what this woman did and quit chemotherapy. It just so happens that this decision worked for her and I think it important for everyone to be aware of.
The fact of the matter is, this Holistic treatment can be done along with chemotherapy, radiation, etc. This recipe has worked wonders within my own home and for the woman who is the source of this simple solution. She was at the point where doctors had “done all they could” and any hope for her survival had been severely depleted. Yet, here we are years later and she is now a cancer survivor all because of the Baking Soda & Maple Syrup Cancer Protocol.
**Side Note: Those of you who decide to use the Baking Soda & Maple Syrup Cancer Protocol to help overcome your cancer or people who have already successfully overcome cancer would benefit greatly by continuing with a maintenance program as a preventative measure against potential cancer cells. It truly would be wise for everyone to continue this program as a weekly regimen to fight against cancer.
People aren’t always open to Holistic methods, trust me, I know! Nevertheless, it doesn’t hurt to at least share this information because you never know how a person might react. If you do try “extending an olive branch” and happen to receive a negative reaction then the mistake in decision making belongs to the other person, not you. But, if you receive a positive reaction, your act of kindness may have just helped to save this person’s life!
So, if you know someone battling cancer, what are you waiting for? Seize the Day and share this recipe while you still have the opportunity to do so!
