One of the most common forms of skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma manifests as a thin, flat squamous cell that makes up the outer layer of the skin. While typically not life-threatening, if left untreated, the cancer can spread to various parts of the body and cause more serious complications. Natural treatment options can prevent this spread and treat the condition before more serious complications arise. Cesium Chloride, Apple Cider Vinegar and Iodine and three such remedies.
What is Squamous Cell Carcinoma?
Squamous cell carcinoma is a cancer of the skin that generally appears as a thin, flat cell on the outer layer of the skin. This cancer typically occurs on the scalp, back of the hands, ears and other sun-exposed areas. Symptoms of the condition include a firm red nodule, a flat sore with a scaly crust, a new sore from an old scar, a red patch inside the mouth or a raised wart-like sore on the anus or in the genitals.
Natural Remedies for Skin Cancer
Treating skin cancer, even a mild form like squamous cell carcinoma, is crucial for alleviating more serious complications. Treatment generally centers on eradicating the irregular cells and replenishing new, healthy cells. Natural treatment options include cesium chloride, iodine, apple cider vinegar and several others.
Cesium chloride is a unique compound lauded for its involvement in the cancer breakthrough. This compound, obtained from the reaction of cesium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid, is considered a salt that is effective at oxygenating the body and starving the cancer cells. Cesium chloride creates an environment in the body in which cancer cannot survive, thus eliminating it.
Iodine functions in much the same way as cesium chloride. This compound attacks the diseased cells and destroys them without harming the healthy cells. Iodine also eliminates infection and other toxins that may be harming the body.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar also functions to disrupt cancer’s necessary environment. While apple cider vinegar is acidic, it works to alkalize the body, a state in which cancer cannot survive. Apple cider vinegar also delivers a number of important vitamins and minerals to the body to support overall health and immune function.
Typically a result of extended exposure to ultraviolet radiation, squamous cell carcinoma is highly preventable and also treatable. Avoiding extended sun exposure and regularly checking the skin goes a long way toward prevention while natural remedies are also capable treatment options.
03/23/2014: Lori from Zafririm, Israel: "An acquaintance told me that following countless surgical procedures for Basal Cell Carcinoma he decided he'd had enough, did some research and successfully treated himself using apple cider vinegar. And the info I'm reading does seem to substantiate this. But, is it as effective for Squamous cell carcinoma in situ (bowen's disease)? I don't see anything clear cut. It's on the bridge of my nose and don't relish mohs surgery, and been through 3x aldare and efudix. Thanks, Lori"
[YEA] 02/22/2006: Barb from Elk City, Oklahoma 73644: "I used cesium chloride to cure squamous cell carcinoma. The cesium worked on all the tumors except the one the doctor was treating with radiation at the same time I was treating with cesium. I couldn't understand why the cesium didn't kill the one tumor which was dying from radiation. Three months later as the tumor had grown back to its original size I finally figured it out. The radiation was shrinking the tumor so it wasn't ingesting the cesium chloride at the same time the rest of the tumors were.
It has been said it is harder to treat cancer after radiation. I now know why. The radiation stops the intake of the natural cancer killing agents until it starts growing again.
After killing all the small tumors there is no doubt a second treatment with cesium chloride will work on the larger tumor because it is once again ingesting huge amounts of glucose to keep its inefficient acid engine running.
If anyone tries the cesium chloride treatment be sure to tell them to take their potassium and magnesium as these chemicals get locked up inside the cancer cell along with the cesium chloride. Great harm can happen if they do not keep up the electrolites in their system as they self medicate with cesium chloride."Replies

It was 4 months ago underwent surgery and now it's growing back in my lung and under my arm pits. I'd sure love to know about this cesium chloride and how to use it and where to get it from? Please inform me soon. God Bless you all."
11/15/2011: Gavin from Manganui, Northland, New Zealand replies: "It might be wise to up your intake of good raw garlic.. It's been shown to protect the body against lung cancer among other cancers. It slows cell division and stimulates the immune system."

[YEA] 02/26/2007: Diane from Chesapeake, VA: "I use tincture of iodine (everyday) on skin ulcers which refuse to heal. Sometimes I apply iodine 2 to 3 times a day. I never miss a day when treating squamous cell carcinoma. The area being treated by the tincture of iodine often becomes very sensitive or itchy...don't discontinue the iodine...keep applying iodine on the ulcer. The itchy skin will scab up...it's just the healing process. Scrape off the skin if it again develops a white flaky patch or a brown scab...then, apply more iodine. Use the iodine for at least one to two months until the skin ulcer has completely disappeared. Then, use Retin-A cream to complete the skin rejuvenation process. Use Raw Organic Palm Fruit Oil along with the iodine to promote deep healing and also use Raw Organic Palm Fruit Oil along with sun block to prevent future skin damage. The ulcer patches have developed on my hands and lower arms. One skin damaged area shows my skin separating on crease lines on top of my wrist. The day after I applied the tincture of iodine to the separating skin, the crease lines showed signs of healing, as blood circulation appeared in the area. The areas I treat are all about the size of a quarter, which is larger than the freckle-sized spot. I figure the underlying skin damage takes in a larger area and it may only show up on the skin as a small freckle-sized spot. Last, everyone will ask you why you are using iodine on your skin...it's orange...it's sooo old fashioned. Don't let the embarrassment of orangey skin stop your self-treatment...it beats having a doctor remove the cancer and leaving you with holes where the carcinoma or melanoma used to be. I use this treatment on all skin problems, to include possible melanoma. In addition to the topical treatment, I plan to add a daily dose of Lugol's Iodine in my drinking water. I want to treat all cancers and other health problems from within. I have red hair and white skin with lots of freckles, and I am very sun sensitive. I have been terribly burned year after year while growing up in California. I am now 56 years old, and the skin cancer is just starting to appear. That's why I feel it necessary to add the Lugol's Iodine daily to my drinking water."Replies

04/17/2013: Aurora from Palo Alto replies: "Send you many blessings, it's a hard place to be.
The one thing I know about tumors and cancer is that they cannot live in an oxygenated environment. There is of course so much more.... But starting with finding a way to increase oxygen is good. Another possibility; a Holistic Healing clinic, they would have doctors and nurses available. One of the best medicines is breathing fresh air, being surrounded by a natural envornment, and ingesting healing herbs and nutricious food. One should never underestimate the power of our own bodies to heal themselves, if they decide to. Sometimes our time is up, but many times we can heal through the help of encouragment and loving care. Wish you all the best."
04/18/2013: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) will surely help in whatever applications you can do, i.e., Topically, IV, oral. Zapping will also help. A 30hrz Zapper will do. While reading about zapping and waiting to own a zapper, you can use a 9V battery on the tongue; it will burn so move to different places. Zinc Lozenges will also help, especially in the mouth and throat area. Systemic enzymes like Nattokinase and Serrapeptase eat the protective coating of cancer cells, thereby leaving them vulnerable to the therapies thrown at them. Restrict Sodium and increase Potassium. Miracle healing music like "Love 528" (YouTube has some samples, will need headphones). This music will help clear bad energy in the body & mind (1-2 hrs daily)."
04/18/2013: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "To Janice Gypsy, Because and only because you are as desparate as you say you are and have tried the things you mentioned with NO success: There is BHT [ butylated hydroxytoluene ]. BHT was proven to extend the lifespan of cancer prone mice by up to 50% in studies done by Dr. Denham Harman back in the 1950s. If and only if your husband tolerates BHT well the recommemded dosage is: 250mg to 350mg taken once or twice a day, depending on whether or not he tolerates said dosages well. It may just work because of BHT`s well documented ability to scavenge free radicals and reactive oxygen species. The sort of chemical entities associated with the cellular damage resulting from and associated with cancer....Oscar"

04/18/2013: Gavin from Manganui, Northland, New Zealand replies: "There are about ten specific vegetables, which halt and reverse cancer, the number one is garlic it stops cell division in its tracks, it musn't be taken if you want a child as it will slow down sperm production till it basicly stops. It mustn't be taken if you are going to have surgery as it thins the blood down to the extent that bleeding is a dire posibility, so no garlic up to two weeks before an operation. Otherwise any amount is safe. Apple carrot and Red beet, would be the others I would suggest as they also have a lot of anti cancer compounds in them esspecially red beet, which a cupfull will drop the Blood pressure down ten points, for a period of 24 hours. And lemon juice.
My humble suggestion for what its worth is, stop all dairy, this means steak as well the meat is drastically impregnated with oestrogen which starts and feeds prostate and breast cancer. Stop all sugar especially corn sugar which is in just about everything. As the cancer cells need 18 times more sugar than ordinary cells.
Get a good supply of beets, carrots, apples lemons and Garlic organicly grown if possible. Get a good juicer, Juice an apple a carrot a beet a head of garlic and a lemon. Chuck them all in the juicer collect the juice and just keep feeding the patient as much as they can take for as long as they can take it, untill there is an improvement. If your fit and want to stay that way apple carrot and beet is a really nice drink anyway...... A very few people will have a condition called beetauria, which colours the urine red, dont freak out it harmless, and a very few people will also get a condition that causes the vocal cords to seize up... This also very rare and is harmless, it passes. These are the only side effects reported and are essentially harmless with regards to the overall treatrment. The garlic will stop the cancer and the others especially the beet and the lemon will kill the bad cells. Adding cayenne would help, but it might be a bit much along with the garlic. It would open up all the small capillaries and speed up the absorption of all the other ingredients."

11/20/2012: Cat from Phoenix, Az, Usa: "I was diagnosed with SCC in situ February, 2012. It is on the bridge of my nose. I had a scaly small patch for about a week before my biannual screening with a PA at the dermotologist. I had a BCC diagnosed February, 2008 and had mohs surgery. I am a 47 year old female native of Arizona so I had quite a few sunburns as a child; as an adult, I rarely go out in the sun until this year where I go out for 10 minutes a day to get Vitamin D. I am trying to avoid another surgery and have explored other natural options. Baking soda, ACV, ginger, tumeric, Vitamin C, cinnamon, etc. both topically and internally.
Went back today for a check up after refusing surgery and my PA basically fired me. She said she could no longer treat me if I didn't follow her protocol. She wouldn't even examine me. I am reluctant to have surgery because, 1- it in on the top bridge of my nose basically between my eyes, and 2 because of the incidence of recurrence. The spot has a slight pink scar from the biopsy, but other than that, no one would ever know that I have a SCC. Suggestions welcome. I am getting my records, already have my pathology report with the diagnosis of SCC in situ (Bowen's Disease), extending to the edge of the specimen."Replies

11/21/2012: Robert Henry from Ten Mile, Tn Usa replies: "HI U CAT, , , , , , , Got an interesting story to tell you about my hand cancer. First, I started self treatment using Lugol's iodine. The spot let me know PDQ that it was cancer and the scab turn hard and black. An aquaintance spooked me into having it surgercally removed. Did that and the pathologist said is was indeed Squamous Cell Cancer and the surgeon got it all. It was not long until the site looked just like it did before. From my research, I expected this and reserched the net and found a site and the story behind this ointment.
The cream is made from the pore ole Egg Plant but I learned that it works. Within a short while the lotion caused the cancer to rise and crust and soon it fell off. Looking at my hand now you would never know there was a cancer there. At 76 it does not look like a baby's butt. Also, I had another suspecious growth on my underarm and treated it with this lotion. It is gone and the site is healing.
This microbioligist which found this cure for skin cancer had to leave Australia before he was prosecuted for practicing without a license. I better hush least the boss will not let my comment on site. I push the envelope. You read what all say and make up your own mind. Me, I saw what happened and will stay with this lotion. Note: the guy tells you up front that it will not cure Melanoma. You do have to cover the cream with micropore tape.
That is my word. ======ROBERT HENRY======"

I have even heard that Orange oil will determine if you have skin cancer or not, but the only orange oil I have is orange blossom oil and I am unsure if that is the same. I have really cleaned up my diet and have oil pulled with seseme oil almost every morning for about 6 months. I did just recently have a healing crisis (I think that 's what it was) in the form of perioral dermititis that spread to my cheeks, chin, neck and around my eyes. The thing that really helped that was a clean diet, coconut oil and calendula cream that I found at Target in the states. Before that, I used neem oil, oregeno oil, lavender oil in aloe vera. As you can see, I am open to anything and everything. I did try to make my own eggplant with vinegar following a recipe from topical forum website, but that did nothing for me. The PA I saw called me the next morning telling me she spoke to the Mohs surgeon (who did my first mohs on the left side of my nose) and that this Mohs wouldn't be as bad since my lesion was only 3 mm as the one on my nose was 8 mm. I cannot believe in 2012, that the only approved FDA (that's another story) method to treat SCC is to have it surgically removed."

Will kill the cancer in 24 hours. Skin cancer eschar will fall off in 7 to 10 days. The hole in the skin will refill in 20 to 60 days with new skin. May be some temporary scar tissue formation. One application needed in 90% of cases. Some mild to strong burning sensation felt during the 24 hours the paste is on; but is bearable by most people.
98% cure rate. 300 year old history of use. uses zinc chloride + blood root + galangal root. costs about $30 to $50 for a generous supply, if ready made is bot. The skin cancer rarely returns after using the salve one time.
Made famous by Harry Hoxsey. The MOHS SURGERY AMA thing is a cheap rip-off of the hoxsey salve, designed to complicate a simple procedure.
The Ingrid Naiman book explains everything, in great detail. worth $1, 000's : cost ~ $50."

11/26/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "Hello Duke,
On the Squamous Cell Carcinoma,
The origin is important and based on what you said might be of an origin that can have a viral cause. The Human Papilloma Virus, HPV, is the connection.
Google, Squamous Cell Carcinoma virus, and up will pop the HPV sites. So, let's suppose the cancer has metastasized from the sinus which you said was a possible origin. The upper body, head and shoulders are often subject to HPV virus which in turn can ignite the SCC.
So if this were me, Duke, I'd assume that the HPV might be a continuing instigator accompanying the metastasizing activity of the SCC.
To kill viruses I use a lot of items but by far my favorite is Colloidal Silver. I would be drinking six tablespoons daily...forever. My assumption would be that just perhaps with the death of the HPV, the ability for the SCC to continue to continue could be slowed if not halted.
Next; I'd be on 10, 000 mg of vitamin C (buffered) daily, spread throughout the day. That is a Linus Paling method for dealing with cancer.
Next; I'd really think about going to see Dr. Nick Gonzales in Manhattan...just Google his name and his web site will come up. He'll get you on high does of pancreatin, but the treatment is much broader than that.
By the way, look up "IP6" and see if you don't think you should get on that also.
Duke, I know this is hard. To be told by a professional that you only have a little over a year to live are words we all dread. Many prayers will go up for you. EC is a very compassionate and loving site, a bit like a family.
11/26/2013: Mike 62 from Denver, Colorado replies: "Duke: Everybody are right, God's Goodies are more potent than the condition. Study AndrewKimblog why cells go bad. He has a graduate degree in cellular biology and gives a technical explanation. Many 80/10/10ers have recovered because raw organic produce contains enzymes, humic acids, xeronines, and sulfur not in regular food. These are also in raw grassfed animal products. A lot of people are going to tell you not to take sugar but sugar is actually a necessary part of the cure. Andrew Kim explains this technically and many 80/10/10ers have recovered while getting sugar from fruit. If I were you what I would do is get the superfood powders, dessicated liver, activated barley, barley grass juice, freeze dried young green coconut water, raw cocoa, absorbable colostrum, and raw whey isolate. Mix them together in one bag. Add a scoop to 12oz. water and drink every hour. Take 5 drops of marine phytoplankton 1oz liquid, get the expensive one, sublingually every hour, 1ml skate liver oil 3x day, raw wildflower honey as needed, 30g black chia seeds, 20g coconut oil, and 17 mushroom extract blend from Washington. You can also make home made water kefir. I take all these products myself. While you are waiting for them to arrive make green smoothies from organic baby leaves and eat organic berries, non gmo red miso, kimchi, and raw grassfed hamburger every hour with 12oz water. If you have access to a Whole Foods drink a lot of Kambucha drinks with the chia seeds in them. This is not a diet. You need to nourish the cells, detox the poisons, and repair the tissues."

Google CAPSOL T and go from there. You cure cancer with your immune system and what the Allopathic method does is to kill your immune system. Get your body pH above 7 with baking soda. Clean up your liver with coffee enema's. Read and learn about every detox program you can. Buy a cheap Ozonator and drink Ozonated water full time. Find a sauna that you can use . It took me 7 months and I was a wore out pecker wood. If you have a tumor then Google Black Salve and Egg Plant Cancer cure. I've done that with success on skin cancers.
Do what your doctor says and also get a program of your own , but don't tell the egotist what you are doing. Get on a totally raw vegetable diet. Drink water until it comes out your ears. Eat no dairy, nor meat until cured. Then go to Ruth Chris' and buy the most expensive prime steak they have. You will have earned it.
