In the National Library of Medicine and the Cochrane Library database, from January 1985 to November 2008, several randomized controlled trials studying sodium bicarbonate as a prophylactic measure of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in humans, indicating that sodium bicarbonate can be used in the fight against oncology for the treatment of many diseases, especially in the therapy of CIN. CIN is a common cause of acute renal damage. Several prevention methods for the treatment of this trauma have been carried out.
The results from using sodium bicarbonate in this application are striking. Seventeen randomized controlled trials have investigated the role of sodium bicarbonate in the prevention of CIN. The overall prevalence of CIN was 11.3%. Using the results of all 17 studies to evaluate the effects of sodium bicarbonate and physiological saline show that the combined relative risk of developing CIN was 0.54 (95% CI, 0.36-0.83) in the intervention, indicating a significant benefit from using sodium bicarbonate. The combined relative risk of CIN was 0.57 (95% CI, 0.35-0.95) when we analyzed the studies that compared the effects of sodium bicarbonate with NAC on the development of CIN. There was no difference in the indices of the need for replacement therapy and death.
The properties of sodium bicarbonate are taken full advantage of in the techniques used by our clinic for colonic irrigation. The services offered by our clinic, in particular, colonic irrigation, are opportunities to avoid many serious diseases, including the prevention of oncology. After all, according to UK statistics, if bowel cancer is diagnosed at its first stage when the disease has not spread to the outer wall of the intestine yet, 98% of patients survive for five years or more. However, at this stage of pathogenesis, only 15% of cases are diagnosed. Colonic irrigation is a large step on the way to ensure that the large intestine functions normally.
The prevalence of intestinal cancer today is second only to lung cancer. In the UK, about 42,000 new cases of this cancer are diagnosed each year. Approximately 16,000 patients with bowel cancer die each year. If the disease is detected at the third stage of pathogenesis, the chances of recovery and survival over 5 years are 60%. Colonic irrigation will revert the intestines back to normal; preventing the development of diseases and significantly improving the quality of life.
