“There are good reasons many believe that there is nothing in mainstream medicine that addresses de-acidification, detoxification, fixing nutritional deficiencies, modulating and boosting the immune system, and increasing full body circulation. Medical science has failed in its attempts at curing degenerative, metabolic, or autoimmune diseases. Without removing toxins and acids from all organs, cells and tissues, and without providing the essential nutritional building blocks like magnesium, the body will not be able to heal completely.” Dr. Mark Sircus
A little perspective: It has been estimated that people in the Paleolithic (prehistoric) era consumed about 11,000 mg of potassium daily. Today’s RDA daily value for an adult is 4,500 mg – lees than half of what our genetics dictate. In the Paleolithic era sodium consumption was estimated at about 700 mg daily. Today’s average is 3,271 mg with an RDA of 1,500 mg. The dominance of sodium over potassium in the U.S. diet adversely affects cardiovascular function and contributes to cancer, degenerative disease, hypertension and stroke: the Paleolithic diet inverts this ratio.

After 24 years of clinical observation and personal use, I like using Potassium Bicarbonate instead of Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) that Dr. Sircuss and others, but not all, recommend, for alkalizing the body and as an adjunct to any anti-cancer protocol. Bicarbonate from either sodium bicarbonate or potassium bicarbonate, when combined with Magnesium Chloride, provides both Magnesium and Potassium Bicarbonate.
My personal daily protocol:
1/4 tsp of potassium bicarbonate, 1/4 tsp of sodium bicarbonate and 1/4 tsp of mag oil two times per day. NOTE: Too much magnesium, too quickly will cause cramping and diarrhea. This is an incredible cocktail to increase alkalinity (cancer fighter and degenerative disease fighter – as well as energy produce).
