Cesium: Nature's premier body alkalizer

Cesium, the most electropositive and least abundant of the five naturally occurring alkali metals, was discovered spectroscopically in 1860. The first cesium metal was produced in 1881. Historically, the most important use for cesium has been in research and development. There are a number of areas of the world where the incidence of cancer is very low. The authors have been able to collect information on the chemical composition of food in these low incidence areas. In every case, the cesium content has been found to be very high. In addition, the diet has been found to be high in the supportive compounds i.e. vitamin C, vitamin A, zinc and selenium. It seems apparent therefore, that the composition of foods and the diet eaten in these areas are similar to the nutritive requirements for the high pH therapy.

Dr. Otto Warburg published a Nobel Prize winning paper over 75 years ago describing the environment of the cancer cell. A normal cell undergoes an adverse change when it can no longer take up oxygen to convert glucose into energy by oxidation. In the absence of oxygen the cell reverts to a primitive nutritional program to sustain itself, converting glucose, by fermentation. The lactic acid produced by fermentation lowers the cell pH (acid/alkaline balance) and destroys the ability of DNA and RNA to control cell division - the cancer cells begin to multiply unchecked. The lactic acid simultaneously causes intense local pain and destroys cell enzymes. Therefore, cancer appears as a rapidly growing outer cell mass with a core of dead cells. Cesium, a naturally occurring alkaline element has been shown to affect the cancer cell two ways.
First, cesium limits the cellular uptake of the nutrient glucose - starving the cancer cell and diminishing fermentation. Second, cesium raises the cell pH to the range of 8.0 neutralizing the weak lactic acid and stopping pain within 12 to 24 hours. A pH range of 8.0 is a deadly environment for the cancer cell. The cancer cell dies within a few days and is absorbed and eliminated by the body.

The science of high pH therapy (drastically changing the acid/alkaline balance of the cell):

By the late 1970's mass spectrographic and isotope studies had shown that tumor cells exhibit a preference for the uptake of certain alkaline minerals; Potassium, Rubidium, and especially Cesium. Further, specific antioxidants i.e. vitamin C, and zinc were shown to enhance the uptake of these alkaline minerals by the cancer cell. A normal cell is surrounded by a membrane, which selectively allows materials to flow in and out. Oxygen and nutrients, such as glucose, flow in and the waste products of cellular chemistry flow out. The cells are protected by the immune system; a well functioning immune system is the best defense against the formation of cancer cells. When environmental toxins (carcinogens) overwhelm the immune system the entire program is compromised. The cell membrane is affected first, losing its ability to exchange oxygen (respiration); the cell then reverts to a primitive survival mechanism - fermentation.
The newly formed (anaerobic) cancer cell cannot be repaired (fermentation is not reversible) the cell is now out of control and must be destroyed as rapidly as possible.

Note that in areas of the world where there is a high cesium content in the soil cancer is virtually unknown: Hopi Indians of Arizona, the Hunza of North Pakistan, and the Indians of Central and South America. This observation suggests the possibility of a vitamin, mineral, antioxidant formula containing cesium in an amount equal to that found in the soil of cancer free habitats. This mineral nutrient could be a powerful new tool to help slow down the present cancer epidemic.

The German scientist Hans Nieper has in the meantime shown that cesium chloride is effective in the management of most problematic tumors, e.g. of advanced brochogenic carcinoma with bone metastization. Indeed, for this kind of cancer, cesium seems to be the treatment of choice, even with relatively minor changes in lifestyle.
The treatment of cancer [and possibly the prevention of cancer] by cesium is a very pragmatic and intelligent one. It is inexpensive and non-toxic over unlimited time.

Possible side effects noted during Cesium therapy include mild numbness within the triangle describing the mouth and the
tip of the nose area and light nausea and/or flu like discomfort. [Taken from]

Also, one of the conditions observed after cesium therapy was a striking rise in blood uric acid levels. This is caused by massive release of DNA from dead cancer cells. DNA is metabolized into uric acid. Typically the values went from 3.5 mg. to 20 mg. This has the potential to cause decreased kidney function because large amounts of uric acid appearing in kidney tubules can form crystals that block the tubules. If a large number of kidney tubules become blocked kidney function fails and uremia appears. This is easy to prevent by using the pharmaceutical drug Xyloprim (allopurinol) before and concomitantly with cesium so that excessively high values of uric acid do not develop. This might only be needed when 20 or more grams of cesium (high dosage) are being taken daily. Xyloprim lowers the blood level of uric acid by shifting the metabolism of proteins so that the body produces less uric acid, thus decreasing the blood levels of uric acid and the amount of uric acid the kidney needs to excrete.


Cesium can help with the following:
Metabolic  Acidosis


  Cancer / Risk - General Measures
 There are theoretical reasons and experimental findings that indicate fast-growing cancers can be completely resolved by using a 6gm cesium chloride salt for 30-days. Dr. A. Keith Brewer ((1984) had a program for raising the pH of the cancer cell to 8.0 (highly alkaline). This is the same pH in the small intestine, and it is the pH required to activate trypsinís digestive enzyme activity. (The author has noted that stomach, colon and rectal cancer are all common - small intestine cancer is rare.)

Cesium is way less expensive than quality pancreatic enzymes. A much smaller does of pancreatic enzymes (maybe 4,500mg daily) along with 6,000mg cesium chloride daily might be enough to destroy tumors.

The Brewer cesium protocol includes:
  • 6gm cesium chloride (2000mg A.M., 2000mg noon, and 2000mg evening)
  • 100,000 IU Vitamin A
  • Up to 30,000mg Vitamin C
  • Selenium - 200 to 400mcg
  • Zinc - 50mg
  • Laetrile (apricot seed extract) - 150 -200mg

Alkaline:  A solution having a pH greater than seven.

Anaerobic:  Of, relating to, or being activity in which the body incurs an oxygen debt (for example weight training or resistive exercises) and does not immediately burn off a lot of calories and fat.

Antioxidant:  A chemical compound that slows or prevents oxygen from reacting with other compounds. Some antioxidants have been shown to have cancer-protecting potential because they neutralize free radicals. Examples include vitamins C and E, alpha lipoic acid, beta carotene, the minerals selenium, zinc, and germanium, superoxide dismutase (SOD), coenzyme Q10, catalase, and some amino acids, like cystiene. Other nutrient sources include grape seed extract, curcumin, gingko, green tea, olive leaf, policosanol and pycnogenol.

Cancer:  Refers to the various types of malignant neoplasms that contain cells growing out of control and invading adjacent tissues, which may metastasize to distant tissues.

Carcinoma:  Malignant growth of epithelial cells tending to infiltrate the surrounding tissue and giving rise to metastasis.

DNA:  Deoxyribonucleic acid, the large molecule that is the main carrier of genetic information in cells. DNA is found mainly in the chromosomes of cells.

Enzymes:  Specific protein catalysts produced by the cells that are crucial in chemical reactions and in building up or synthesizing most compounds in the body. Each enzyme performs a specific function without itself being consumed. For example, the digestive enzyme amylase acts on carbohydrates in foods to break them down.

Epidemic:  Describes a disease occurring in extensive outbreaks, or with an unusually high incidence at certain times and places.

Glucose:  A sugar that is the simplest form of carbohydrate. It is commonly referred to as blood sugar. The body breaks down carbohydrates in foods into glucose, which serves as the primary fuel for the muscles and the brain.

Gram:  (gm): A metric unit of weight, there being approximately 28 grams in one ounce.

Immune System:  A complex that protects the body from disease organisms and other foreign bodies. The system includes the humoral immune response and the cell-mediated response. The immune system also protects the body from invasion by making local barriers and inflammation.

Metabolism:  The chemical processes of living cells in which energy is produced in order to replace and repair tissues and maintain a healthy body. Responsible for the production of energy, biosynthesis of important substances, and degradation of various compounds.

Milligram:  (mg): 1/1,000 of a gram by weight.

Mineral:  Plays a vital role in regulating many body functions. They act as catalysts in nerve response, muscle contraction and the metabolism of nutrients in foods. They regulate electrolyte balance and hormonal production, and they strengthen skeletal structures.

Nausea:  Symptoms resulting from an inclination to vomit.

pH:  A measure of an environment's acidity or alkalinity. The more acidic the solution, the lower the pH. For example, a pH of 1 is very acidic; a pH of 7 is neutral; a pH of 14 is very alkaline.

Potassium:  A mineral that serves as an electrolyte and is involved in the balance of fluid within the body. Our bodies contain more than twice as much potassium as sodium (typically 9oz versus 4oz). About 98% of total body potassium is inside our cells. Potassium is the principal cation (positive ion) of the fluid within cells and is important in controlling the activity of the heart, muscles, nervous system and just about every cell in the body. Potassium regulates the water balance and acid-base balance in the blood and tissues. Evidence is showing that potassium is also involved in bone calcification. Potassium is a cofactor in many reactions, especially those involving energy production and muscle building.

Protein:  Compounds composed of hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen present in the body and in foods that form complex combinations of amino acids. Protein is essential for life and is used for growth and repair. Foods that supply the body with protein include animal products, grains, legumes, and vegetables. Proteins from animal sources contain the essential amino acids. Proteins are changed to amino acids in the body.

RNA:  A ribonucleic acid found in plant and animal cells; a complex protein chemical. Important in the coding of genetic information with DNA carrying information from the nucleus of the cell into the cytoplasm.

Selenium:  An essential element involved primarily in enzymes that are antioxidants. Three selenium- containing enzymes are antioxidant peroxidases and a fourth selenium-containing enzyme is involved in thyroid hormone production. The prostate contains a selenium-containing protein and semen contains relatively large amounts of selenium. Clinical studies show that selenium is important in lowering the risk of several types of cancers. In combination with Vitamin E, selenium aids the production of antibodies and helps maintain a healthy heart. It also aids in the function of the pancreas, provides elasticity to tissues and helps cells defend themselves against damage from oxidation.

Uremia:  Condition characterized by excessive urea and other nitrogen compounds in the blood due to renal insufficiency.

Vitamin A:  A fat-soluble vitamin essential to one's health. Plays an important part in the growth and repair of body tissue, protects epithelial tissue, helps maintain the skin and is necessary for night vision. It is also necessary for normal growth and formation of bones and teeth. For Vitamin A only, 1mg translates to 833 IU.

Vitamin C:  Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant vitamin essential to the body's health. When bound to other nutrients, for example calcium, it would be referred to as "calcium ascorbate". As an antioxidant, it inhibits the formation of nitrosamines (a suspected carcinogen). Vitamin C is important for maintenance of bones, teeth, collagen and blood vessels (capillaries), enhances iron absorption and red blood cell formation, helps in the utilization of carbohydrates and synthesis of fats and proteins, aids in fighting bacterial infections, and interacts with other nutrients. It is present in citrus fruits, tomatoes, berries, potatoes and fresh, green leafy vegetables.

Zinc:  An essential trace mineral. The functions of zinc are enzymatic. There are over 70 metalloenzymes known to require zinc for their functions. The main biochemicals in which zinc has been found to be necessary include: enzymes and enzymatic function, protein synthesis and carbohydrate metabolism. Zinc is a constituent of insulin and male reproductive fluid. Zinc is necessary for the proper metabolism of alcohol, to get rid of the lactic acid that builds up in working muscles and to transfer it to the lungs. Zinc is involved in the health of the immune system, assists vitamin A utilization and is involved in the formation of bone and teeth.
