Alternative treatments for melanoma include topical applications of natural elements as well as oral supplementation. Natural elements, such as eggplant, possess unique healing compounds that treat surface level cancer cells and eradicate the condition.
What Is Melanoma?
The most serious kind of skin cancer, melanoma develops at the site of melanin production. The melanocytes produce this natural component and give the skin its color, so melanoma is commonly located on skin exposed to sun. Rarely, melanoma forms in the eyes or in the internal organs including the intestines.
While the exact cause of melanoma is unclear, exposure to ultraviolet radiation increases an individual’s risk of the disease. The most common initial symptoms of melanoma include a change in an existing mole or the development of a new pigmented or abnormal-looking growth on the skin.
Alternative Treatment for Melanoma
While the best treatment for melanoma is dependent on the stage of the cancer as well as the individual’s overall health, alternative methods offer safe, natural treatment options. Eggplant, bloodroot and essiac tea deliver natural components to treat and eliminate the affected skin cells.
Eggplant contains powerful phytonutrients that treat the affected cells involved in melanoma. The glycocides and glycoalkaloids contained in the eggplant penetrate and destroy cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Eggplant can be applied to the cells directly or macerated and mixed with vinegar for more effective treatment.
Bloodroot is a natural compound derived from the flowering perennial plant native to North America. The root contains a special chemical sanguinarine. This compound causes apoptosis and kills the cancer cells while maintaining the health of normal cells.
Essiac tea is a mixture of herbs including burdock root, slippery elm bark, sheep sorrel and Indian rhubarb root. The tea made of the compound is show to strengthen the immune system, relieve pain and reduce tumor size. Additionally, essiac promotes cell repair and relieves inflammation.
Melanoma is the most common type of skin cancer; however, with effective treatment, melanoma can most often be eliminated . Nonetheless, avoiding overexposure to the sun and protecting the skin when exposed is important for preventing the condition.
[YEA] Hi, I'm healing skin cancer using bloodroot. I have great pics if anyone is interested.

[YEA] Our doctor used it on my husband's nose... He had been to a dermatologist, found out this spot was cancer, and instead of letting the dermatologist cut it out, he went to our naturopathic doctor The doctor put a very tiny amount of concentrated bloodroot on the spot, about the size of a pin head, no more. Then slapped a Band-Aid on it... Two days later the spot is black, it ate ALL THE CANCER away, and left a big hole... The hole eventually closed in... Be careful with this stuff it is very potent, but it does work.

[YEA] I tried Cansema #100 from The Original Cream Company. www.altcancercream.com. It healed two spots of skin cancer on my head and I also removed a funny growing mole on my left side. This has been 2 years or more ago and nothing has returned. The salve came as a kit it took about 2 minutes to make. Their website had a lot a information and a great FAQ section. I have talked with them by phone and they have always been helpful when I had a question. I believe you will find them a wonderful company to work with.

Looking for help with skin cancer lesions on foot.
My father has cancer on one of his feet, and gout that recurrs on his other foot. He has been on chemo for over a year. When the doctor suggested that the next step is radiation, he has chosen to continue the rest of his life without radiation. He is trying out something called Budwig protocol which is a natural remedy but so far no change after 1 week. We are concerned about the high dosage of omega 3. So I have scouted the site and have read about the use of DMSO to apply. In what form is it supposed to be? I have searched and found one type that is sold as a gel with 15gm of DMSO, 2.5gm D-Panthenol, and 0.33gm heparin sodium. Can this work? How much should we apply? By the way he is totally off sugar foods. He eats fruits as long as they do not have too much citric acid, since he says this triggers the gout by increasing the acidity levels. I have read about bomelain in fresh pineapples and I am going to suggest that he start on these.
Any assistance will be welcome. Thank you.

[YEA] Earlier this summer I found a little bump on my forehead, about the size of 1/2 of a good sized pea. It was slightly crusty and there was crustiness around that area. I have since seen on the net that this matches one description for a precancerous skin condition.
I tried topical Iodine & hydrogen peroxide with no success whatever.
I am not trying to get religious here but I feel I should give credit where credit is due. I prayed about what to do and felt YHWH brought me the word "eggplant" later out of the blue when I wasn't even thinking about the problem.
You can see on the net that there is an ingredient in eggplant that kills surface cancer cells - and they don't come back.
I started rubbing that bump & much of the surrounding area with a slice of the eggplant every night. I used the white side, not the dark skin. I used no vinegar, just the eggplant slices plain & simple. Within a few days the bump was shrinking. Within a month it was, and still is, totally gone.
Now I am going to get maybe a little bizarre. Since my sister has been found to have pre cancerous lesions in her colon, and since such things are very common, I have even taken to doing 2 retention enemas a week with eggplant added in after its been in the blender. I figure it can't hurt (and it hasn't, though whether it's a coincidence or not I can't say but I have become much more regular) and might help.

I tried the eggplant and apple cider vinegar concoction for skin conditions I suspected were melanomas. One of the scars I treated with the concoction was a kelloid from a surgery I had about 30 years ago to remove an infected fibrocystic cyst on my stomach about two inches from my belly button and around my waistline. The kelloid started getting itchy and an even ugly scar was developing on top of the old scar. I started the daily treatment on September 12 up to this writing, October 6, 2012. My question is this, how long should I do this and how do I know that what I treated was in fact the deadly melanoma because I read a lot of strong warnings of the deadly melanoma. Thank you for any help or clarification!

[YEA] A few years back when I was working in a village for aged,part of my job was to take residents to their doctor appointments. On one of these occasions the resident had a suspected melanoma on her leg. The doctor gave us a remedy you can buy in a tube (very expensive) or make it yourself. It got rid of the melanoma in about 2 wks.
medium sized eggplant
Method: chop up eggplant & place in a glass jar (not plastic) Pour in enough vinegar to cover eggplant, cover with a lid & place in the door of the fridge for 3 days.
Every time you go to fridge for something, give the jar a little shake. After 3 days the liquid will turn a gold brown colour, strain the liquid & keep refrigerated in the glass jar. How to use: Can be dabbed on to melanoma several times a day or can soak a cotton ball in the liquid, place on top of melanoma & cover with tape (low allergenic kind) change at least twice a day. Need to do this for at least 2 weeks to kill off the melanoma. It only attacks the bad cells. The doctor said if it was a melanoma,after a few applications it could be quite painful when it goes after the nasties. If it didn't pain, unlikely to be of a menacing nature. (it also works on warts) Do it under a doctors supervision though. It definitely works,I have seen the wart disappear & the resident I referred to had a painful healing for a few days but it cleared up after a couple of weeks.

[YEA] Essiac Cure: I had nodular Melanoma on my finger and the doctor wanted to chop my finger off but I told them I wanted to look around first, I put them off for 2 1/2 months while I tried Essiac that I found on the internet and sure enough I still have my finger and the doctor gave me a clean bill of health after I had finished. All of this started back in sept. 2005, It is now 2009 and my finger is in great shape thank you.
PS I would recomend essiac to anyone.

Hi. I 'burned off' what looked like melanoma spot - had pH (a.m. morning 6.0) have raised it to 6.6 in five days time. Wondering if it is under the skin; and don't know how to find that out. Am using good sized minerals and vitamins. Zinc, Silver, Selenium... etc. Can I have someone take a look at my pictures? Thank you. Nikkigirl2002
YOUR SITE IS VERY INTERESTING TO ME , I HAVE RECENTLY FOUND A SPOT ON THE BACK OF MY THIGH THAT APPEARS TO BE CANCER TO ME.
IS THERE ANYONE WHO HAS USED THIS CONCOCTION TO RID THEMSELVES OF THE SAME.(MELANOMA)
I AM HAVING AN ISSUE GOING TO A DR., IF I AM CORRECT IT WILL BE SURGERY,CHEMO(POISON) INTRODUCED TO MY SYSTEM.
THE REASON I HAVE FOR ISSUES ARE DRS. ARE TO EAGER TO PUT POISON IN YOU WITHOUT GOOD PROSPECTS, MY FATHER DIED OF NON HODGKINS LYMPHOMA, WHEN IT WAS DISCOVERED IT WAS STAGE IV. THE ONCOLOGIST CONVINCED HIM IT WOULD GIVE HIM 6 -10 MONTHS, SO FACING DEATH HE ELECTED FOR THE TREATMENT, THE FIRST LEG DID NOT WORK AND THEN PERIONTITIS, HE LASTED 1 MONTH.
MY PROBLEM IS I DON'T WNT TO BE AN ONCOLOGISTS TESTING GROUND FOR HIS DATABASE OF WHAT DOESN'T WORK, THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY GETS TO "PRACTICE", ATTORNEYS "PRACTICE"
I HAVE SPOKEN WITH FRIENDS IN MEDICAL FIELD AND ALL SAY WITCHCRAFT, AND DANGER ABOUNDS, I EXPECTED THIS KIND OF ANSWER, WHAT, THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY CAN ONLY ACCEPT WHAT THEY ARE TAUGHT, THERE WAS INTERESTING FEEDBACK BEING YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WILL AFFECT THAT DOESN'T NEED TO BE MESSED WITH.
SOON I WILL NEED TO SEE A DR., SHOULD I GET A DIAGNOSIS FIRST, IF A BIOPSY IS DECIDED ON DON'T THEY GENERALLY REMOVE AT THE TIME, AND IF THEREIS POSSIBLE LYMPH NODE INVASION,THEY WILL REMOVE THOSE AS WELL AT THE TIME. SHOULD I THEN CONSIDER MY OWN COURSE OF ACTION. I BELIEVE OUR HEALTH CARE SYSTEM MAKES MONEY BY NOT TRYING TO CURE. SHOULD I SEEK REMEDIES OVERSEAS IF THERE IS ANY.
I KNOW ONCE YOU HAVE CANCER, YOU ALWAYS HAVE IT, 5 YEARS SEEMS THE BEST RESULTS FOR ANY EXCEPT PANCREATIC CANCER.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, YES I AM VERY WORRIED , IS LIFE OVER AT 50.

Hydrogen Peroxide Treatment for a Melanoma
Home Remedy Ingredients
- Hydrogen Peroxide - 3%
Soak a cotton swab in 3% hydrogen peroxide and scratch at the melanoma until it turns white in color (be careful not to treat the normal tissue surrounding the melanoma). Do this three times a day until the melanoma dries up and flakes off.
[YEA] I tried Bill Munro's hydrogen peroxide inhalation therapy for skin cancer. I saw a black dot on my forehead - watched it, it was getting slightly bigger every day. When I started inhaling the hydrogen peroxide (3%) it was gone in 4 days. This happened a second time with a black dot under my eye. I started the peroxide inhalation and had similar results. I will not stop inhaling peroxide now - and have had no further problems. Thanks, Bill Munro!

Let me start by saying that this site is like my bible when it comes to ailments and natural medicines. A friend of mine was just diagnosed with melanoma Cancer. I believed she started by noticing two cysts under her left breast, she had a biopsy that revealed they were melanoma cancerous, now she has this cancer on her lungs, ribs and breast. My question is: May I suggest her the use of 35% hydrogen peroxide? I am a true believer of HP, I drink it diluted in water everyday.
Will this be good for her? Are there other natural treatments beside chemotherapy that will help her? Thanks.

I have a ? about peroxide or any of the other remedy's for melanoma cancer. My mom died from this cancer, she had it in her mouth under her tounge and in her jaw. How would one go about using any of these remedy's for a melanoma "inside" the body that you cannot put it on topically? I would give anything to have known about this info since she died at only 52 yrs of age. I sit here thinking that the "people" had to have known how to help her instead of letting her suffer and die like she did. Thank you for your time. Tracy

[YEA] I had 3 moles on my arm very close to one another. One mole was a dark melanoma mole, the second a pink, fleshy mole and the other a pink hard mole. I've had these moles since I was a child and wanted to really remove the black mole and since the other moles were right beside it, I treated all the moles at the same time. One word of warning is to use vaseline up to the base of the moles, I did protect the surrounding skin, but not up to the base, actually on the mole and I received some nasty chemical burns on all three moles.
They all did change color within the first day, it took about 4 days for them to scab up but took 2 to 3 weeks to heal from the chemical burn. I believe it will scar, and the scar will be bigger than the moles were. I am applying emu oil, iodine and other moisturizers daily to reduce the appearance of the scars. I am glad the moles are gone, just wish I had been more careful about the surrounding skin and I wouldn't have been so vigorious in applying the HP, patience is the key.
