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.
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
