If you heard the four words, “You have breast cancer,” you likely equated the statement to a life sentence. But, with as much research as is being done currently, we have learned a number of different treatment supports and options to help you cope with cancer and have a better chance for full recovery. While breast cancer does require traditional medical supervision and care, there are also a number of natural cures, including turmeric, flaxseed, calcium, acupuncture, and others, which are effective for treating cancer and its symptoms.

What Is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a form of cancer that manifests in the cells of the breasts. According to Mayo Clinic, it is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in the United States second only to skin cancer. While the condition is far more common in women, men can also develop breast cancer.

Regular breast self-exams as well as doctor screenings are important for preventing breast cancer and catching the condition as early as possible. Many of the initial signs of cancer are relatively easy to detect. Common symptoms include a lump or thickening in your breast or tissue, bloody discharge from you nipple, change in the size or shape of a breast, dimpling or other changes in your skin over your breast, an inverted nipple, and redness or pitting of the skin covering your breast.

Are There Any Natural Cures for Breast Cancer?

Doctor’s care is necessary to identify the stage of your cancer and to identify the most appropriate treatment approach. However, many natural options are effective for supporting traditional cancer treatments and for treating the condition on their own. Some of the best natural cures for breast cancer include turmeric, flaxseed, calcium, baking soda, and acupuncture.

1. Turmeric

Dr. Mercola purports turmeric, or rather the specific compound curcumin found in turmeric, as one of the best supplements for breast cancer. The compound has been found to inhibit the growth of tumor cells, prevent the transformation of healthy cells to cancer cells, assist your body in destroying cancerous cells, decrease inflammation, and enhance liver function. To get the full benefits, Dr. Mercola says to look for an extract that contains at least 95% curcuminoids and contains only certified organic ingredients. Drink 1 tablespoon of turmeric in a quart of water every day for the best results.

2. Flaxseed

The Cancer Cure Foundation suggests using flaxseed as an effective natural treatment for cancer. The American Cancer Society also reports that flaxseed has been show to slow the growth of cancer and to prevent its spread. For the best results, use flaxseed oil and take 1-2 tablespoons by mouth per day.

3. Calcium

Calcium is another nutrient that has been shown to aid in cancer treatment. According to the Cancer Cure Foundation, calcium reduces tumor formation and supports overall bone and tissue health. You should take at least 1,000mg per day for the biggest health benefits.

4. Baking Soda

Our own Earth Clinic readers support baking soda as an effective treatment for breast cancer. Baking soda helps alkalize your body, creating an environment in which cancer cells cannot thrive. Drink 1 to 2 tablespoons of baking soda dissolved in 8 ounces of water daily.

5. Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a commonly used treatment for mediating the symptoms of cancer. The treatment pinpoints pain centers to relieve pain and inflammation throughout your body. Cancer Research UK lists this as one of the most commonly used treatment options for cancer.

Hi, after 23 years of being cancer free I now was diagnosed with Stage 1 Breast Cancer. It's not a fast growing one, and it was detected early so that's good. The usual treatment would be a Lumpectomy with Radiation afterwards. This treatment is not an option for me because I have had radiation before. I read that no cancer can survive in an alkalized body. I'm working on this since 4 days. Do you have any specific Advice for me regarding the alkalizing process quckly where I have a chance of getting rid of the cancer before having to do the Traditional Treatment which in my case would be a mastectomy and either chemotherapy or hormon Therapy afterwards.

I have one more question in this regards: how do I make sure to not get stuck in the 6.8 - 6.9 ph levels, since I read that they are dangerous to be in.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You, Tina

After listening to an interview from a doctor who had breast cancer for the second time, and was advised it would be terminal. She realised that in China it was called "rich womans disease" as only those who got it in China were rich and could afford Dairy. The only thing she could do was to cut out all dairy which she said wasn't as easy as it might seem, but checking everything in her diet was dairy free.. The tumour in her neck started shrinking, till it finally disapeared, her oncologist was astounded. If you google doctor with " breast cancer and dairy" you should be able to find her.

Tina: Not to divert the question, but for others to answer; this looks like applying an Epsom Salt poultice or warm cloth would very much alkalize locally and more (detox).

Hi Tina, There are people on the LDN site who use it for cancer, along with PawPaw, alkalizing, IP6, and fasting from Sunday until Wednesday morning, then eating baking soda with some form of sugar that goes directly to the cancer cells. One man's wife had stage 4 breast cancer and her doctor now talks of long term cure. He is always willing to share their protocol if you search cancer on the site, the comments will come up and you can email people directly and privately. Obviously, I have read many excellent recommendations here, also. Best wishes.

Remove the cause, and you have the cure. I came across this with regards to breast cancer, as a hormone related cancer it would be the same for prostate cancer in males. As the incidence graphs are similar. Here we have a general hormone disruptor in widespread use in the Western world that no one seems to be addressing. When it is, a PR machine swings into action. The general rise in Obesity, Diabetes, Heart disease could be laid at the overconsumption of this culprit as well. Remembering that Insulin is a hormone as well.

I see alkalizing, particularly by mineral baths, as the very first step in preventing cancer, but only a first step. Detoxing and immune boosting are certainly very important. But yes, alkalizing is mandatory first step as all other treatments or remedies (conventional or alternative alike) depend on this for their success.

As for the hormone problem, as I understand it, excess estrogen and insufficient testosterone is the major problem in both males & females. Estrogen mimicking environmental zenobiotics are a big problem. For men in particular, aging often decreases the utility of testosterone. Estrogen dominance is one of the causes, but other factors as well. The loss of utility of testosterone causes a buildup of "bad" dihydrotestosterone in the prostate which leads to enlargement and cancer. This problem is easily corrected w/ the herbs Stinging Nettles and Avena Sativa. About 3 yrs ago I decided to try the green oats and the results were profound as my libido shot thru the roof, which is evidence I had high dihydrotestosterone levels.

The natural occurring chemical in cruciferous veggies Diindolymethane (DIM) is effective in reducing estrogen excess in both men & women. Many male athletes and trainers use DIM regularly to boost free testosterone.

It seems that it was actually my mistake. In Australia and England (it seems) we don't refer to a product called Baking Soda. We call it Bicarb Soda. I think some people outside the US are getting confused because we also have Baking Powder which is a different product, usually Wheat/Corn flour with added Mineral Salts. Bicarb Soda is definately Sodium Bicarbonate and is the correct product. Hope this clears things up. Thanks for the great website."

Perhaps hope for you is in tomography (search internet). I know of a man who had "seed tumors" all over his body after cancer surgery. He walked into a tomography place, had a brief treatment, and (his stepson tells me) walked out cancer-free with no recovery. Tomography targets only tumors--precisely.

I was diognosed with stage three breast cancer that was also in my lymph nodes in 2011. After much research I figured I probably had a better chance with healthy alternatives than big pharma.

phcurescancer is a lovely site by a gentleman who cured his own cancer using bicarbonate soda and the lump in my breast did go from 80mm across down to 70mm in the two weeks I pushed my ph into the high 7s. However this is not a good thing to do long term and bi carb not the best way to do it. Be aware that mixing bi carb with citrus acid (vit c) chemically combines to create carbon dioxide, pure poison. Good info on

One of the best ways is diet and drinking alkalising greens. Coral calcium is also excellent and a much better balance of essential minerals. I test my pee regularly and a ph in the 6.5-7 is good from what I understand. If you are reading 7.3 or higher then your body is probably too alkaline and is trying to get rid of excess. If for some reason I've dropped under 6.5 then I will take a quarter to a half teaspoon of bi carb which just boosts things up nicely but I rarely have to do that now.

I'm sure through diet and lifestyle changes it is possible to help the body get rid of most cancers. I had some very positive results and felt fantastic health and energy wise. Once I started working I got a bit slack and by the end of 2013 the lump in my breast had gotten large again and some lymph nodes were enlarged. So this year I started using MMS with MSM or DMSO. Cheap. Very definite results. The tumer is half the size it was in two months and the lymph nodes are getting smaller. I found I could only use very small amounts or I got pretty full on detox effects. In a couple of months I'm hoping for an all clear and I will put together a more detailed report and put it out there.

So don't panic. research. There's a huge amount of very good information out there. Keep an open mind and a healthy amount of scepticsism. It's a wonderful world and we are amazing beings so I hope all goes well.

Dear Carol,

Wonderful, positive post, thank you. I have a question regarding your statement... "Be aware that mixing bi carb with citrus acid (vit c) chemically combines to create carbon dioxide, pure poison..." I beg to differ about mixing citric acid with sodium bicarbonate. I take this form of vitamin c almost every day for years and am alive and kicking. It's called Vitamin C sodium ascorbate and is the best form of vitamin c to take in my opinion. Definitely not a poison!

Replied by Carol

Hi Edda, sorry if I was a bit dramatic. Carbon Dioxide is a poison. It's created when the body utilises oxygen as well as in other processes that happen and the body works hard at getting rid of it as quickly as possible. That's why you breath in oxygen and breath out carbon dioxide.

From what I've gathered Vit C is a general label they put on a substance they didn't understand very well At the time. it does come in various forms. I was referring to citric acid which is different from the vit c sodium ascorbate you said you were using. You just have change one molecule and it changes what happens.

When using mms you mix sodium chlorite with citric acid as an activator. It can taste yuk, especially with larger amounts. So word was out that if you mixed bicarbonate soda with it, it tasted better and was less acidic. Which it did. Now days a I try to research everything from different angles. Some times I even check out the quack sites for a good laugh. two main things happen. If the bi carb hooks up with the mms molecules it creates a much larger molecule which then can't do what you want it to do which is to take extra oxygen deeply into cells that need it. And if it combines with the citric acid molecules it becomes carbon dioxide. In the past I have occasionally squeezed lemon into a glass of bi carb which made it taste better and lemons are so good for you. High in citric acid and I won't do that again.

bicarbonate soda is a wonderful substance used in so many ways but do some research on what it actually does. It can throw the acid, alkaline balance of your stomach and lower intestines, needed for proper digestion, totally out of wack. It might provide temporary relief for indigestion or heartburn but far better to work out what is causing the problem Long term. It can cause other mineral imbalances. If you've had a few drinks which is very acid then drink a big glass of water with a spoonful of bicarb dissolved in it before bed. You will fell much better in the morning.

The last two years has been a steep learning curve for me and I'm learning more all the time. Especially not to take things for granted, including breathing. All the best.

One to two tablespoons baking soda seems like alot, maybe taper up to it? That seems like a lotta action inside a body, we do a 1/2 tsp. once a day, and when we're ill we compensate as we test acidic. We throw a half lemon's juice or a pinch of baking soda in every glass or bottle of water we drink, even throw a little lemon juice or baking soda in the dogs' water every now and then too, and have seen it spare dogs when vets failed. 1/2 tsp. when I'm in respiratory distress and test acidic gives me a quicker, profoundly stronger and longer last relief from respiratory failure than everything else I've done or tried, including major surgery, combined. We take a 750 mg. tablet of GABA when we do "a fix" though, else we run around (or go to bed) wired.

Breast Cancer History Breast cancer runs in my family. My aunt is fighting it now. Not to mention from using regular store bough underarm deodorant as a teen myself I use to get lumps under my arms/right in the pit area. They had to be lanced and drained at the hospital. From that point on I did alot of research and found that the aluminum they put in the deodorant clogs the glands under your arms which inturn are very close to the breast. I have not used store bought deodorant for about 15 yrs now-I only use all natural from health food store and never had a problem again. Just wanted to let you ladies and men too know to STOP USING REGULAR STORE BOUGHT DEODORANT ONLY USE NATURAL. Thank you have a wonderful week all

Please tell her that the best thing that I have found is Baking soda. I have gone organic and was trying every organic deordorant on the market and I would still stink!! It was making me crazy, then I came here and read about everyone using BS with great results and IT IS TRUE! After my shower, I pat some in each armpit (I'm pretty liberal). And I have absolutley no underarm odor. Even in my wool sweaters which can really trap the smell...So, I put BS in a pretty bowl in the bathroom and use that. IT WORKS!

I use Tea Tree Oil Deodrant, Tea Tree Oil toothpaste, Shampoo, Body Lotion, mouthwash. etc. It takes all odors away, is an essential oil. These products are awesome!!! You can buy them at a health food store and the oil itself is great for pain and muscle strain, and for jock itch, yeast under your arms, razor burn, you can put a drop in your bath water. I swear by them. If I get stopped up, or have a headache I will put some of the oil on my forehead or breath in the vapors and my sinus open up. The toothpaste is great for halitosis, and helps keep all tartar and tooth decay away!!

My Wife/best friend/most important/everything has just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, that's why I'm on this site. This may or may not help those looking to stop using store brand Deodorant.

If you can get the type tablets Hospitals use in Colostomy bags, those Work Best and they Work Great. The drug store tab's work OK. The side effects are min, 2 is all I've experienced. 1st is gas, after a day or 2, noise (if you can't silence it) is all that will give you away. Then, It's the GREEN you'll leave in the toilet that may have you feeling faint until you remember what's caused it. I've used Chlorophyll for years and still do.

Breast Cancer Prevention

Posted by Ben (Bremerton, Wa ) on 05/05/2016

A safer cancer diagnostic tool is a thermogram. You hear doctors preach about how women need to get yearly mammograms etc yet the very act of medical imagery exposes you to needless radiation. It's long been known that such radiation helps to get cancer growing. Now unless you have a naturopath for a doctor, I bet you never heard of a thermogram. Well this medical imaging technique can be safely used by anyone at any age. It looks for areas of unusual heat signatures. A thermogram can detect a tumor as small as a grain of rice. This means it can detect tumors 7 to 10 years earlier than an old fashioned mammogram.

The procedure is very simple, you first get a baseline image. You sit in a temperature controlled room and let your body cool for a brief period of time then body mapping begins. Every square inch of your body is thermally mapped by computerized equipment then kept as a data ase. Next year any changes, even tiny ones, that show up can represent a possible tumor. These then can recieve additional testing and diagnosis. With the ability to detect tumors many years before being able to be imaged by any other technique.a thermogram can give you a valuable head start in cancer treatment options. This can be a life saving asset.

I am almost 61 years old, a widow with 3 sons, working, with average health issues for my age, nothing serious and nothing that Earth Clinic hasn't helped me with greatly. I take no medication other than supplements. I am writing because I feel passionately that there IS solid evidence that there is something every woman can do to drastically reduce her chances of getting breast cancer, and that is to not wear a bra at all....or to wear one NO MORE than 12 hours a day. I urge everyone to do research about this, because you have no particular reason to believe me. I have personally not worn a bra since the bra-burning 1960s. Needless to say, I have not had breast cancer, but my bra-wearing mother has. Don't listen to me; do some research and you will undoubtedly come to one book that is stunning in its conclusions. Once you understand the delicate and yet absolutely essential function of the lymphatic system (which is gravely compromised by tight clothing), you will be convinced. And believe me, after one week of going braless, I cannot believe you will ever be able to harness yourself in again. If you need a 'recipe,' I will pass on this: all-cotton camisoles or undershirts! They are so comfortable, winter and summer. They are not supportive, but they do help to preserve your modesty.

During the fall of 2005 I was put on a series of antibiotics for a period of 4 months treating a throat and gland problem. My Dr. referred me to a Nose Throat ear specialist. Test were done and this time I was diagnosed with Mono(from a patient I treated) Again more antibiotics I got worse night fevers swelling then the knots came I was then diagnosed with Lymphoma. Yes, the antibiotics played a big part, but there were other factors. One- tight wired bras were cutting the lymph tubes where the toxins could not flow. Also wearing bras to bed and wearing under panties with elastic bands around the waste and groin area which also cut lymph tubes. Ladies, get out of the tight under garments. This is a big factor in breast cancer because the toxins stop at the breast area when the lymph tubes are squeezed tight and cannot flow and remove the toxins.

Pueraria Mirifica (also known as kwao krua) has many benefits, including: Breast firming and enlarging, better skin, anti-aging and stronger nails an hair. It grows in Northern and Northeastern Thailand, the region where this plant is grown is remarkable for its low rate of breast cancer and impressive longevity.


I decided to see what I could learn about Pueraria mirifica and it doesn't sound too good regarding breast cancer.

From the government website, National Center for Biotechnology Information: "In conclusion, in the present study long-term postpubertal treatment of Donryu rats with PM at a dose of 200 mg/kg b.w./day exerted promoting effects on mammary carcinogenesis after the initiation with DMBA. Furthermore, PM elevated cell proliferation in the mammary glands of DMBA-initiated rats, which might lead to the promotion and progression of mammary tumors to greater malignancy. In addition, it inhibited the levels of calcium in the blood, and induced inflammation, hemorrhage, and dilatation of the uterine wall in rats." 200 mg per kg of body weight is a lot, I'm sure, and these are poor, unfortunate rats, but still, I would be a bit leery of this herb for cancer and opt for more tried and true alternatives.

Breast Cancer: Post-Treatment Remedies

Posted by Julia (Sylva, Nc) on 02/06/2013

I had breast cancer back in 2004 and went through all the prescribed therapies, lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. The area around my lump was benign and the first lymph node was clear but they scare you into doing the therapies. Anyway, I have been doing good, not taking any medications, just trying to eat right and taking herbs and vitamins and eating lots of fruits and veggies. Well, I know this is normal but it scares me. My breast that was radiated is starting to feel more and more like rubber and I'm wondering is there anything out there that might help. I've used aloe gel right off the plant, used apple cider vinegar, castor oil, comfey salve and olive oil after showering but it seems to be getting worse. I do not want to go back through the drill with the doctors as I want to live a quality life and that involves no drugs which I do not trust, if you can help me in anyway please do, I still have my mammograms yearly as well as a yearly physical. Thank you very much.

Hi, I have heard that mammograms are not always good and thermograms are better. Also, I have heard that oxygen therapy is good like using food grade hyrdrogen peroxide therapy. There is a book that tells about it... It's called the one minute cure or something like that and tells you how to dilute the peroxide and how to take it. You build it up slowly each day by how much you take but another thing is that sugar feeds on cancer and Doug Kaufmann from know the cause show says fungus mimics cancer and natural anti- fungals like oregano oil topically and interanally can help.. he also has the phase 1 diet which is very similar to the paleo diet to help as well.

I use H202 therapy on a permanent basis and I swear by it. It has helped me so much! I cannot think of life without it. Do NOT drink the 3% H202 normally bought at a pharmacy/drug store as it will not be pure and likely have contaniments in it. If drinking it it is essential to follow the correct protocol suggested by David Williams. You MUST purchase 35%FOOD GRADE H202 ONLY and use it according to THE specific protocol. NO OTHER WAY WILL DO. H202 35%FG can also be used for mutiple purposes if diluted down appropriately.

my name is ruth,I used flax seed to cure my tumors . I would grind them in my coffee grinder . Then I would use about 2tsp a day and sprinkle them over my salad . I found it easier to eat them that way . I also would make flaxseed bread I would use about a 1/2 cup in my loaf of bread . It is very important to grind the flaxseed up to get the benfit of the seeds. Other wise the seeds will just pass right threw you . I did this for about a year and when I went back and had my ultra sound they were gone . I also had a tumor in my breast . I was benine but that also disappeared as well . I never tryed the BSM because I never heard about it working on tumors until now. I end up have a historectomy because my uterus fell . but I still take it so I don't get any tumors in my breast

Hello, my mom has been doing Gerson Therapy (cofee enemas, 13 juices a day, no salt, high potassium, high in potato diet) for almost a year. Her breast cancer has grown larger and hard and she developed nodules on her thyroid. We have contacted the Gerson clinic in California and they are suggesting for her to go for surgery to remove the tumor in her breast and her thyroid because her body is not battling it. They are trying to break all ties with us because the therapy didn't work. We are at a loss of words because the therapy has a large success rate. We believe it has to do with her thyroid and her high estrogen. Would you be able to give any advice? We do not know what to do because we know that surgery spreads the cancer. We live in Cleveland, OH. It is urgent. She is still doing the Gerson Therapy.

Natalia: try to find time to read E.C. chapter on Cancer here: There is probably too much to digest in a few minutes but you can take notes (copy & paste) any or all remedies that are easy and can begin right away. Don't be afraid of taking too much nutritional supplements as there are very few contraindications or problems in that area; just fallow labels recommended doses. As for advanced nutrition that could be a life-saver, I would highly recommend cellfood or cellpower drops.

Keep us updated as to your progress.

Her cancer got worse because the diet is not starving or reversing the cancer. is a good source and my favorite book Beating Cancer with Nutrition by Patrick Quillin. And a quick possible source for breast health and cancer cure in, Terry Naturally's CuraMed-Breast (for healthy breast cells). And of course, a no/low sugar, low glycemic diet. Too many potatoes and not enough whole food as chpt 13 in P. Quillin's book amazingly explains. And this site on breast calcifications. Parasites are also an issue, I love and Going chemical free in body products and home is a major issue and plenty of pure water, along with a dairy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, vegetable oil-free (except EVOlive Oil, and for cooking only, Coconut or MCT Oil and Avocado Oil). Also, increase Omega-3 animal source fish in diet and much less Omega-6 and less salt in diet. Breast Cancer exercise videos on youtube and wherever to stretch, weight, aroebic, and lymph drainage (rebounder). All of this is a good start in helping stave off and reverse cancer.

Hi Bill, I have breast cancer that I am trying to heal naturally. Iodine is something I have been wanting to add to my arsenal. Would that be a good idea? Thanks.

Hi Donnaw13...Iodine is anti-carcinogenic and can be used against cancer. Iodine helps to modulate the estrogen pathways to prevent cancer gene expression. In fact here is the overwhelming evidence:

But you will have to take a much higher dose of lugols iodine than normal to fight the cancer. I've read that 300 drops of 5% lugol's iodine per day(in split doses) has been used to treat cancer. But you should really be properly supervised by a medical professional before taking such a large amount of iodine.

If you do take lugols iodine please also ensure that you take the full Iodine Protocol with companion nutrents

Here are some of the other useful healing properties of iodine for the body:

Healing Properties of Iodine.

I had a bloody discharge from my breast. I healed it by painting lugol's iodine on it daily with a paintbrush, at least twice daily, alkalinizing my diet, consuming iodine rich foods, cutting out all sugar, caffeine and almost all protein. I ate mostly leafy greens, raw, and ate only the foods that gave me energy. I eliminated anything that made me feel tired. I have been discharge free for about 5 years now.

Dr Derry from Vicotria on Vancouver Island has a book out about Breast Cancer and his research shows that taking 1 to 2 drops of iodine a day in a glass of water can help to prevent breast cancer. His book is very informative and gives a scientific reason why it works. I have been using Iodine this way for 6 years. I also use it on moles, tags and other skin conitions and it helps to make them small again. I have used it for sore throats too and it works wonderfully. Just use it sparingly as it can be toxic with too much use.

Lugol's Iodine

I am trying out Lugols iodine 5% for a recent breast cancer diagnosis.

Soaked some in gauze and wrapped to skin overnight. In the morning - iodine patch on skin- then blister rips off, leaving raw patch. I apply a dry dressing daily. Hope to get barrier cream.

Anyone used Lugol's to treat this condition? Pls let me know.

Thx Shade

In the States we can buy hot cold packs that are made up of pea sizes gel beads. There is one here that comes with a belt with a pocket that you can Velcro to your body so the heat goes to the spot you want it to be. The gel peas make it so that the pack shapes to your body. Heat will help drive the lugol's to a greater depth. Heat also kills cancer cells. So check your Boots for a heat pack. DMSO also helps to move the iodine into you. DMSO will also break through cancer cells and carry the iodine in.

Cut out all sugar and junk food. Cut down on carbohydrates like crisps. Sugar will feed your cancer because cancer cells require 8 times as much glucose as your normal cells need so starve it.

Look into Ted's alkaline drinks here in EC and also take L-lysine up to 5 grams per day spread out.

Protect your liver with silymarin and alpha lipoic acid.

If you plan to do chemo therapy and/or radiation therapy get vitamin C powder and start taking it throughout the day in mega doses to protect yourself from the damage it does.

Keep asking your questions here and keep learning how to stop and reverse the cancer. Treat your body and not just the cancer.

The lugol's might be too harsh to apply directly to the skin. Mix it with a bit of organic coconut oil. Eat bitter apricot seeds as well up to 30a day.. Combine with zinc, curcumin, vit c and selenium.

Okay here is my recipe for topical Lugol's iodine.

Use a clean glass dropper bottle. Put 10 dropper fulls of 5% Lugol's iodine into the bottle. Add a few grains of vitamin C powder until the iodine goes clear. Then add 20 dropper fulls of aloe vera to the mix. Add a dash of zinc chloride to the mix and put the cap on loosely and swirl until it dissolves. You will feel it heat up. Lastly add twice the amount DMSO to what you have. Let it sit for a few minutes.

This does not make very much but you have to use it up or the mix will separate and turn amber again so you will need to use it up.

When you apply to the skin you will not need very much of this on a spot. Just a few drops will do. If this still burns add more aloe vera and less zinc.

I worked this recipe out from something that Ted wrote. So thanks to him I have it.

I hope this helps.

Magnesium Chloride

Posted by Art (California ) on 09/12/2017 682 posts

Magnesium chloride (MC) has many potential health benefits and in the link to the full study below it is suggested that breast cancer might be one.

In the study they compared the effects of MC with cisplatin. The cisplatin was more effective and comes with side effects and can only be given for so long, whereas MC can be taken indefinitely and side effects are more likely to be other health benefits. Being replete with MC may be a safe and effective preventative or it may be a great addition to a breast cancer treatment strategy. Definitely worth the read and consideration.

Here is a link to the full study:
