Update on my post of 2/2/2019 re basal cell carcinoma.

It is now 21 month post above treatment and my forehead is mostly free of spots until I get to my hairline, both top and side of temples where I was not able to apply ACV part of this routine. My thinking is that the treatment was effective, but just out of interest and 2 spots possibly still there, I'm planning to repeat it next week to see if my skin reacts differently. If there is still evidence of BCC I would not do this treatment again but would try Curaderm.

To summarise:

I applied VCO/BS (Virgin Coconut Oil/Baking Soda) combination 2x daily all over my forehead up to my hairline and for the first few days treatment was very painful. Immediately after first application skin looked terribly red and inflamed. Washed it off before retiring and applied 1/2 strength ACV dressing for 1-2 hours (stings considerably for a while) before sleep and repeated this first thing in the morning before applying again VCO/BS.

Continued this treatment for about 3 (maybe 4) weeks. Occasionally applied fresh aloe vera to support healing. Pain subsided at end of first week and slowly over time redness and inflammatory-look disappeared too. The one spot on bridge of my nose was not treated with ACV but has also disappeared. A friend (84) who was diagnosed with BCC treated it with colloidal silver, that she makes herself, and that was also successful.

Thanks to all of you who are sharing experiences and blessings of good health to all.


Baking Soda and Coconut Oil

I had a scab on my scalp that was 12mm in diameter and very slowly getting bigger. My doctor referred me to a surgeon who did a punch biopsy. The results showed that it was BCC and the surgeon said that I would need surgical removal fairly soon. The wait for an appointment to see a surgeon for an evaluation was two months so that made it easy to decide to use an alternative treatment. Although I had Black Salve available, it felt too extreme to use on the thin flesh of my scalp so I chose instead to apply baking soda and coconut oil once a day, thanks to all the Earth Clinic reports.

After a week, it got a bit irritated with some small amounts of blood expressed. At that point, I cut away the hair in the area and started applying a Band-Aid to keep it from my pillow when I slept. In the shower every day I washed my hair normally and then applied pHisohex anti-bacterial face wash as an antiseptic and then rinsed that as well.

After eight weeks the bleeding stopped and signs of the BCC were disappearing. I kept applying the mix for four more weeks just in case. Now the hair is growing back well although it's a little lighter and the only way I can tell where it was it is a slight dent in my scalp. I stopped six weeks ago. In a follow-up visit to my doctor I had to show him twice where the BCC used to be.

FYI, I consulted three more surgeons who all said it needed to be cut out and one even said I'd need a skin graft (where no hair would grow) to cover the wound. At that point the (free) surgery wouldn't actually be available for another three months as I am a public patient with a low time-priority issue. None of them would discuss my self-treatment for legal reasons.

In retrospect, I'd try the Black Salve as a quicker treatment and possibly more certain cure. Thank you EARTHCLINIC!

I had a bcc on my scalp. Had surgery but it came back with a leison that grew larger. I researched and found a lady who had cured her mother's bcc in the same spot as mine with baking soda and coconut oil. She gave a pictorial ongoing account so I tried it and put it on every day and cleaned it at night. It was tender but gradually came off a little at a time. After several weeks the last part came off today. My scalp is red but I am going to put aloe vera on it. Now I'm hoping my hair will grow back there. Not sure if there is any of it remaining under my scalp but guess I'll find out.

I was just diagnosed with basal cell on the tip of my nose. I used a paste of coconut oil and baking soda (1 tsp of each) as often as I could. I also first swabbed the area with apple cider vinegar. I am happy to say after about 6 weeks, I am free of any cancer on my nose. It works and looks completely normal.
