Flush Niacin for skin cancers
I went to a dermatologist to have a weird fatty thing removed. Of course they tested it and it was benign. But, reason for this post, they always give you a going over, checking for other spots and he was amazed that I had none at my age and he mentioned sun screen. Told him I've never used it and I never burn or even get pink. Why? Because I've been taking the flush niacin for over 20 years. He said that this is a little known fact, that niacin protects from skin cancers but most people refuse to bear the flush. He also said that they are researching now about using niacin in people with aggressive skin cancers and are finding all good results. He then said that good diets are so very helpful, but most people can't be bothered. Niacin that causes flushing is a natural vitamin that we all need.
At only 500 mg/day, taken just before sleep, I hardly feel the flush anymore. Seems like a no-brainer to me.
I have had basal cells, dark black spots as large as a dime in my hairline around my face. Last week I started taping sliced, fresh garlic over them overnight and sometimes for 24 hours.
Tonight I used tweezers (My fingernails too short) and removed the most prominent ones.
Was using essential oils before the garlic and was slowly fading them.
Your lies about BCC need to come down. You're misleading people. You should be sued. The only truth listed is that ACV is rich in nutrients. You cannot under any circumstances treat BCC with the listed suggestions. Your claim of raising ph is ludicrous. Do yourself a favor, google alkaline diet myth, read the scientific journals and evidence. As someone who has fought BCC for ten years I can tell you there are about twenty other bad suggestions out there. Might want to stop being one of the outlets that propagates this lie.
I have a basal cell carcinoma on my lower lip. You can hardly see it becuase I think it's under skin. I wonder how to treat this on a lip?
The 70 year old gentleman with the large facial basal cell carcinoma should have it treated by a radiation oncologist (NOT a medical oncologist. ) Large facial basal cells can become infiltrative and burrow deep into the skin. In a few weeks of facial radiation treatments (about 2 minutes a day), he can eradicate that cell. I've saved my ear from Mohs surgery by having radiation. I've just had a large infiltrative lesion from my waistline treated with radiation as well. I'm going to try the Iodine treatment, but only on small lesions on my scalp. There is a huge difference between small lesions which can be treated topically and large cells that can spread to vital organs.
Well it's been an excruciating and disfiguring but ultimately victorious four months for me.
It started with an itchy red bump at the left side of my nose - it would clear scab over but wouldn't heal. I remembered my parents had BCC and used an ointment to treat it, and so here I arrived at my go-to site looking for a symptom set and natural remedy.
I treated the bump with H2O2 quite successfully within 2 weeks, but noticed there were other itchy bumps and inflamed spots and so I dug those up with H2O2. They were bigger and deeper. And took longer to heal. My face was on fire. Sometimes the lesions would close over but I could tell from the remaining surrounding inflammation and the tenderness or sharp pain that they were not fully "excavated". I would dig in a little bit with the H2O2 and yup - still there.
After about eight weeks I had cleared areas on about 60% of my face, but the last 40% was just agony. I felt like I was chasing this thing all over my face - no sooner had I cleared a pocket than one just a centimeter away would start to inflame and itch, and a light rub with H2O2 would show a large area of abnormality.
The scabbing and peeling was, I gotta say, monstrous. I haven't had this kind of skin since my acne-infested teens.
I felt like I was missing something.
I read up on oil of oregano to see if it was effective against BCC. Yes, it is. Also coconut oil. Yup that too. I began to treat the most stubborn open lesions with oregano oil and within a week, saw improvement.
I began to reflect on what I know about H2O2, oil of oregano and coconut oil.
First of all - H2O2. If you watch any science youtube content, it talks about how it "explodes" mico-organisms. These are living things that are super-oxygenated and just go "poof" and create the foam. And I was thinking, wait a minute. The BCC cell is abnormal - but WHY is it abnormal? Sure it has sun damage. There's something wrong with its functioning. But H2O2 doesn't make a healthy cell foam. So is there something inside the BCC cell that explodes?
Then I thought about oil of oregano. It is effective against three things: viruses, bacteria and fungi. Why would it be effective against a malfunctioning skin cell? It is neither a bacteria, nor a virus nor a fungus. UNLESS one of those things is living rent free inside the cell. THEN maybe there's a reason why it might kill the cell, or the thing inside it. if it exists.
Then I looked at coconut oil. Is it a fungicide? Why yes it is. It's used as part of treatment against a candida overgrowth. Also I looked at various remedies - the ketogenic diet for instance inhibits the proliferation of candida albicans.
Then I looked at the BEHAVIOUR of this thing, and it was behaving like a plant. You know when you cut off a small outgrowth of a plant, suddenly it responds with a burst of energy and branches out in all directions from the injured part?
I started with a tiny speck on one cheek and within eight weeks my face was covered in weeping lesions, as new spots grew out next to the healed ones.
So I put 2 and 2 together and thought - OK. What if this is a kind of fungus? Some kinds of fungus only grow on bread. Others only grow on toenails. What if there's a KIND of fungus that only grows in sun-damaged skin cells? Mybe we don't know what t is, but why are antifungal treatments so effective against BCC?
So. I started to treat the remaining open lesions with over-the-counter clotrimazole. Within a week, lesions that had been open for six weeks were closed, healed over, and non-inflamed.
I began to treat the small bumps that were arising next to the healed lesions directly with clotrimazole, without opening them up with H2O2. I opened one or two just to be certain, though. Within a week, they had disappeared, but the skin that was sloughing off showed circular pit-shaped "holes" where a fungus had once existed.
So now I'm moving on to some itchy bumps under some of my sun spots on my arms and torso.
Today I had an experience where I was swimming in the sea and there are small fish that will come and nip at your skin. It's ticklish and hilarious. But one was attacking some part of my foot, really giving it a kind of "tearing" effort. I was like "Whoah little dude. What the heck do you see here?" I put my finger to the spot and it was a tiny, almost imperceptible bump. Later I sterilized the area and gave it a good rub with H2O2 and what do you know? It foamed like a champ. Made me wonder what kind of spectrum these little fish actually see. I mean, it was invisible to the eye, barely perceptible to the touch, but that little fish saw "DINNER".
ANyway, that's my story. I hope it helps someone.
Weird growths inevitably appear on all of us as we age. Cancerous or not, these growths are probably unhealthy and can be removed with HP. Soak any suspicious spot with HP a couple of times a day for about a week and moisturize with coconut oil.
Continue this process until no visible signs of the spot are apparent above or below the skin. Atypical growths with lingering roots usually reappear again later, so repeat this cycle.
Occam's razor: The simplest solution is more likely to be the case when compared to a complex one.
About six or seven years ago I had a sore on my right elbow about the size of a quarter that would almost heal only to split open and start bleeding and oozing pulse again. I went to the doctor a couple of time, and each time he gave me some cream; I don't remember what but it did nothing. For two years I lived with this darn sore almost healing only to crack open and start the process all over again. One day out of frustration I put straight food grade peroxide on the sore, and it totally healed, and has never bothered me since. I don't know what that sore was but I joke with my daughter that I burned the darn thing off.
i find at least 1/2 of the posts are phony. pushing stuff like apple cider vinegar and iodine, etc. i had a cluster of basil cell carcinoma (bcc) on my upper lip about 1/2 in diameter. i tried a soaking of hydrogen peroxide 3%, once a day. it would turn the scabbing white and when pulled off leave a open bloody wound. it would not make it smaller. all it did was start scabbing again.
i had surgery 8-4-09 for removal. it still seems to be healing. i am at this site to learn if something does work. most of your post on bcc are older posts. i am 70 y/o. if this returns i can try something different.

I have had a basil cell carcenoma on my back for about a year.
It got a little bigger and I decided to get rid of it.
I have been using food grade h2o2 Hydrogen Peroxide (25-35%)
It burns but works great. Just use a cue tip dip it into the h2o2 and it burns the top layers of over a few weeks. It's better than the doctor and cost's about $1.00 worth of the food grade peroxide.
I will tolerate a little pain, no pain no gain.
I had a spot of skin cancer on the side of my face which was a strange shape and crusty. I began putting iodine on it every day. Now, the crustiness is gone and the mole is diminishing in size.
Recently three moles on my face were biopsied as basal cell carcinoma. I've had skin cancers surgically removed in the past and have the scars to prove it. Thanks to earthclinic.com I found out about using iodine tincture to remove moles and skin cancers. Over the course of a few months I removed the last three skin cancer spots by dabbing iodine tincture on them 2 or more times per day. They became very dark and hard, eventually falling off. I used generic iodine tincture. It's been over one month since they've all healed. One spot still has a tiny scar, which may still go away, the other two don't. Thank you earthclinic! I love you all!
skin cancer: Have been using 10 percent iodine on basil cell carcinoma on my face. It is working fantastic. Just remember apply many times per day. One of mine was the size of 1 plus inches in diameter and has gone down to 1/2 in in 3 wks, no soreness, no bleeding and no scarring as of today. I will continue until they are gone. Iodine is the best I have seen, having had moh's surgery, 11 hrs on my nose, they did a wonderful job, but this is a lot less painful, and is working wonders. Keep up the good work....I am 67 years old.

Hi all I am starting to use lugols on a suspicious spot on my arm which has always concerned me. I have read that this is a slow process of about 30 days and have chosen this method over others because I don't wish to damage my surrounding skin and I am delivering much needed iodine to my body. I have many spots so this is the guinea pig one and I will let you know how it goes. So far (day three) I can advise a tingling sensation only on the spot after application which gives me confidence. I never knew these spots were 'bad' I always called them beauty spots but the reaction after lugols tells me. My surrounding skin does not tingle on application.
Yes I agree, prayer is key to a successful healing process. I use Manuka honey doctor, (350 strength, ) and Coconut, in Baking soda to make a paste with Frankincense, Thyme and Myrrh. I apply this on the BCC at night before bed. Daytime frequent dabbing with these oils helps retard bleeding and easily removes soft scabs. Faith and trust for me is half the battle. We are made in the image of our Creator.....our ultimate Healer.
