How Much Bloodroot for Cancer?
04/06/2012: Ron from San Antonio, Texas: "How much bloodroot (powder) do you take internally for a patient who has colon cancer that metastasized to the liver? Pls help."
07/20/2013: Evelyn from Sicamous, B.C. Canada replies: "Dear Sirs, I would like to get formulas for blood root capsules and salve. Thank You very much."
Can You Use Bloodroot on Your Temple?
07/07/2009: L. : "I have a question about the black salve with blood root in it. Is it safe to use on your temple, would it cause any damage if you did use it on your temple? Or would you suggest something else?"
07/07/2009: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Basically a black salve is a powerful mixture of blackroot and is used to remove tumors on skin. It may leave a scar initially, but it seems to heal after the growth was removed. If would generally use hydrogen peroxide 6% to burn off the tumor or a 3%. For some reason or another the tumors don't burn with H2O2, but is simply dried up. I generally use bloodroot tincture taken internally to shrink tumor size fairly quickly enough, and the dose is quite low of 2 drops three times or four times a day.
As to the blacksalve applied to the skin, I believe it's applied thinly enough, just to do the job and done slowly rather than apply excessively so it won't cause too much of a problem."
07/07/2009: L. replies: "Can you use in on moles?"
07/07/2009: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "It may remove moles, if it's applied there over a small area."
Where to Find Bloodroot with Ethanol?
02/25/2009: Carla from San Francisco, CA: "I've searched the internet looking for bloodroot tincture, but they only have the one that contains methanol/grain alcohol. I read one of Ted's post where he mentioned that the blood root tincture should contain ethanol alcohol which was less toxic. Does anybody know where to buy this type of bloodroot tincture. I would really appreciate it."
02/27/2009: Carla from San Francisco, CA replies: "sorry what i meant to say was WITH ETHANOL does anyone know where i could find it."
03/07/2009: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "I used bloodroot powder then I will get a beer or vodka, if ethanol cannot be found. It's 50% bloodroot powder and the rest is vodka. However, i actually use pure ethanol, but in some countries, ethanol is not found or is a controlled substance to prevent people making alcoholic beverages instead.
Will Bloodroot Work for Syringomas?
07/27/2008: Ashley from Englewood, NJ: "Will bloodroot work as a remedy for syringomas (tiny tumors on upper cheeks and eyelids)? Has anyone ever tried it? I would love to hear if you have any advice as to how to remove these bumps naturally. Also, please post this question on the site. Thanks!"
07/29/2008: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hello Ashley, I have never used bloodroot (Black Salve) on my face but talked to woman who stated she used it on a small lesion on her lip and her lip looked perfectly normal at the time we were talking. I probably would try it on those on the cheek, but unless your eyelids are unusually thick, I would hesitate to use it there. You might try massaging castor oil into those on the eyelid 3 times/day. I believe it was Edgar Cayce who said this would reduce any growth. Also there was a recent post in latest questions that you might want to read."
Looking to Find Bloodroot in Pill Form
06/18/2008: Patrick Mack from Sunnyside, Washington: "I would like to get some Bloodroot in pill form, but dont know where to find it. It would be great if you could help me find some.
06/19/2008: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hi, To find bloodroot tabs, just type "bloodroot" in search on-line and it will give you several references to look for it."
Salve That Is Safer to Use on Face
06/07/2008: Elizabeth from Los Gatos, California: "I am actually looking for a skin cancer remedy. Don't know if I have it but very hard tiny scab that won't come off is above my eye. A long time ago I saw remedies that mentioned a black salve that was too harsh and damaged surrounding skin, thus endangering that skin to cancer, and another salve that sounded safe. Lost the information. Does anyone have remedies for that or is there a link from this site for it? Thanks so much."
06/07/2008: Jean from Cerritos, CA replies: "Various family members and myself have used 2 different Black Salves. One you purchase from a health food store (not sure all stores carry it now) and the other one from a website that I knew the people personally.
We have had nothing but marvelous results. My daughter being an Onocology RN who had Cancer on two different spots, one on the nose and the other on the side used both remedies (not at the same time) with excellent results. ONLY follow directions and use it only once and use a small amount. I would have lost most of my face due to surgery if it were not for the Black Salve. Today there is not a trace of any ill effects from the use of the Salve. The skin filled the slight holes that were left.
At one time there were pictures on the web to show you what to expect, but they have been taken down. The Salve goes only to the root of the cancer and stops.
My husband removed a spot from his hand using the Salve that kept returning after the Dr. froze it several times. BUT today he has gone back to the Dr. to have additional spots removed from his back. So, it is everyone choice. I hope this helps in our decision."
10/16/2011: Jim from Bellingham, Wa , Usa replies: "There are treatments demonstrated on youtube - shows progression of the resolution."
Bloodroot, Boils, and Scarring?
01/04/2008: L : "Hi Ted- I've been reading on earth clinic about the boils and I took the survey. Here's the deal- about three weeks ago I took my board exam for nursing- i was really stressed and it rained the same day. About a week later I got 2 bumps on my forehead that took turns going up and down, but remained there. Then last week i got 3 more, 2 about an inch below my eyes on each side of my nose, one on my chin. I avoid sugar and anything white, I immediately started turmeric, mag and zinc. I went to my acupuncturist. She gave me herbs for my liver. The boils started growing and got soo painful and hideous. So i put the black drawing salve on them on the 31st. I kept them covered until last night. My head was pounding and i began to have flu-like symptoms-fever, bodyaches, extreme headache. I could feel it drawing up all the toxins. But now it looks like i have thesE big craters on my face. Did it eat away alll of my skin? The skin doesn't feel raw, its covered with a brownish grayish crust. The instructions say to put rubbing alcohol on the spots till the crust comes out. but then i got worried about scarring so i just applied some rosehip seed oil. but i notice the edges around the crater are a little pink so now im concerned with infection. should i cont with alcohol or tea tree or what? i am scared now. Thank you soo much Ted. sincerely L."
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The big problem about black salve is it causes scars, while it removes the toxins. There a mixture of aloe vera oil and some tea tree helps with the healing or regeneration of skin cells.
The other issue is the body was not properly alkalized enough to stop the boils so the boils will recur even if all the other supplements were taken. Hence 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, in 1/2 glass of water, taken twice a day should prevent recurring boils. Also proper alkalization helps the healing.
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "I will answer in greater detail later when I have more time. But I believe there is such thing as natural vaccines. Basically it is a simple oral vaccines that is not injected with toxic substances. However the issue appears to be immune suppression during air travel caused by positive static charges acquired in several amperes and several hundred thousand volts as an airplane flies through the clouds causing the body to go into repairs of an nonexistent problems. Most air travelers call this nice condition, deep vein thrombosis, but the issue is much deeper: as the blood clots, the body goes into repair and also the immune system goes exhausted during air travel.
Upon arriving any foreign country, the traveler experiences immune suppression and easily catch all kinds of native disease much easier than the locals. In Thailand there is actually a "cure" for cholera for example and its active ingredient is clove oil.
The remedy against DVT, or deep vein thrombosis, is for the body to acquire negative charges chemically, by a strong dose of sodium ascorbate vitamin C plus baking soda that is taken before, during and after air travel so that the body doesn't go hyper on repair from false signals of positive charges caused by the static buildup. This is basically the issue.
If I were to travel, the "must have" emergency kit is clove oil, fulvic acid solution, tea tree oil, sodium ascorbate vitamin C, baking soda, apple cider vinegar (or vinegar), zinc acetate, pure colorless sodium iodide (or potassium iodide, colorless), copper chloride, sodium carbonate (or potassium carbonate). Immune issues are best dealt with using iodide, alkalization, and zinc.
There are others, but those are the obvious ones to help me through most conditions, if I were to travel by air. My other own personal collection of remedies not as important, but I might consider is if I were to have high blood pressure or heart attack is to use a very tiny amount of sodium nitrite under the tongue (like 10-20 mg), for example. Sodium nitrite works like nitroglycerine but are a lot safer and cheaper and seems to be basic nitric oxide protective of possible brain damage and heart tissue damage when such do occur, nitric oxide is released by sodium nitrite only in presence of low level oxygen where those tissues need the most protection. High mountain climbing and long distance travel is what I would consider using.
In case you are wondering why take carbonates, it is to protect against flesh eating bacteria or actually kill them applied topically such as MRSA, ebola, and host of other so called common bacteria, that has just becoming a somewhat more flesh eating, as well as insects becoming nano superbugs. All this doesn't just exist in developing countries, but I am seeing more of it coming from the more developed countries, which includes lupus, lyme, morgellon's, Nile virus, norovirus, MRSA and the list goes on and on. These may have developed into newer strains when they are gene interchanged (horizontal gene transfer) with developing nation's common bacteria and viruses too, to form a new strain. People have a lowered immune system from too much vaccinations.
In animals, the life expectancy is lowered from too much vaccination as it causes the shrinking or reduction of the body's immune system such as the thymus. Actually you get that too with those useless Chest X ray examination which have a tendency to reduce by as much as 50% of the thymus size. You can get it both ways, x ray examination and injected vaccinations. I am old fashioned, so I would rather take a small emergency kits and take plenty of sodium ascorbate and baking soda and possibly zinc acetate, rather than take vaccinations. What choices you make depends entirely on your own. Exotic skin disease have little chance of winning against copper chloride solutions, or potassium carbonate or even a simple vinegar in my opinion."
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Dear Nikki:
You can repeat the remedy until you recover. It would also help a lot if you consider taking some zinc supplements, especially 25 mg. every other day at least. Take some sodium ascorbate too, but at different times, where the dose is about 1000 mg/day. Do not clash the remedy with peroxide, but do that at least 3 hours away from the peroxide therapy. If you can't find ascorbate, then ascorbic acid in water with baking soda until the fizz goes away will do it nicely.
A low body temperature indicates the inability for the body to raise its body temperature to defend the microbes. Some iodine foot painting might help. There are other remedies, but the simplest way is to raise the room temperature to about 100 degree fahrenheit, if possible! If not, then consider a hot bath for several hours, not too hot, 100 degree Fahrenheit would suffice. Indians do it for the entire night in hot sauna bath. This is an ancient way to cure many conditions, and the medical practice call this hyperthermia. Most microbes cannot survive at about 103 degree fahrenheit, but in practice 100 degree fahrenheit is usually sufficient.
Long distance airplane flying is often to blame, not exotic countries in itself, otherwise the entire Costa Rica will have people with mono running around. Basically the airplane, lowers the body's immune system, by creating free radical positive charges since these planes acquire positive static charges from the clouds which are quite often anywhere from 100,000 volts to 400,000 volts and severa amperes. It can really put the body's immune system into suppression.
Therefore, you can even fly yourself to Los Angeles to New York and get mono too. The issue is that the plane lowers the body's immune system as well as causing blood clots from excessive positive charges. You can test yourself and look at your blood live in a microscope before and during traveling. It only takes 1 hour for your blood the completely change once you are up in the air. It clots! This is why some people have heart attacks and other people call it deep vein thrombosis or economy class syndrome.
The simple remedy not to get disease during long distance flying is to take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 2000 mg of vitamin C before, during and after the trip. The negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) of a chemical of vitamin C is strongly negative in an alkaline solution of baking soda, which will counteract quite easily the positive charges of static electricity caused by the plane as it flies high in the clouds. As a result, you won't have jet lag, recover a lot faster from long distance flying, possibly protect yourself against heart attack, and best of all, you won't catch diseases as easily during long distance flying. This is also one reason why food always tasted so bad in an airplane. It has nothing to do with bad food, the body acquires too much positive charges that the food tastes bad. It is the same with pregnant mothers who can't eat. A simple remedy for pregnant mothers is the same, vitamin C with baking soda. It will neutralize excess positive charge as the baby grows and sends excess positive charge wastes and that would neutralize them too.
Zinc is also quite supportive and should be taken at least once before a trip. Zinc acetate is my favorite, and it is about 50 mg. should I fly. But the last time I flown was more than a decade ago."

Any Other Ideas for Fighting Melanomas?
Sigrid from Munfordville, KY: "I have a Paso Fino mare with external melanomas (gray mare) and a baseball size one superior to the rectal/colon area and below the spine. I was planning to treat with Cimetidine and Paw Paw for immune support. I want to lower the acid in the system and hopefully the better immune system can work on it from there. Does anyone have other ideas?"
02/08/2007: John from Montgomery, AL replies: "Sigrid, Look at this website it might help: http://www.cancerfightingstrategies.com/skincancer.html "
04/30/2012: Linda from San Francisco, Ca, USA replies: "Hi Sigrid, I realize this is late, but may help someone else with horse problems, especially if there are occult or nonspecific infections which defy diagnosis-
I hope this helps someone.
