Cesium

font size

How does Cesium work?

There isn't enough information to know how cesium might work. Some people who promote "high pH therapy" say cesium affects the pH (acidity) of cancer cells, but there's no scientific research to support this claim.

Are there safety concerns?

High doses of cesium might be UNSAFE. There are reports of severe life-threatening low blood pressure and irregular heartbeat in some people who took high doses of cesium for several weeks. There isn't enough information to know if lower doses of cesium are safe. Some people who take cesium by mouth can also have nausea, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. Tingling of the lips, hands, and feet may also occur.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of cesium during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Irregular heartbeat: Cesium might make irregular heartbeat worse. Don't use cesium if you have this condition.
