Bloodroot: A Medicinal Plant

Shingles

I have used black salve successfully on many different skin lesions, as well as moles. Two years ago I had an initial, very painful outbreak of shingles on my chest. After several days of suffering I decided to try black salve on the blisters. At first it hurt like heck, but it hurt anyway. By the next day the pain and itching were gone. It took a long time to heal completely, and a couple more spots appeared in the area along the way (which I treated also), but the pain was gone and it eventually healed nicely. I still have scars, but no more problems since.

I haven't seen any other postings for using it on shingles, so I thought someone might find it helpful.

Strephen Barett owns quack site and he has been involved in several lawsuits and he has direct ties with the FDA where he was forced to admit in a trial that he makes money from the FDA for defaming natural cures.
The most damning testimony before the jury, under the intense cross-examination by Negrete, was that Barrett had filed similar defamation lawsuits against almost 40 people across the country within the past few years and had not won one single one at trial. During the course of his examination, Barrett also had to concede his ties to the AMA, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

Consider yourself fortunate to have found something that works & doesn't kill you before any cancer has the chance to. I have also used the black salve with good results many times in the past. If anyone wonders why many are getting disillusioned with orthodox medicine and the FDA, go to www.altcancer.com, go through until you find reference to Cancerolytic Herbs: A History of Suppression. You just might decide that the above has developed into our worst cancer of all. Most of all, we need to thank God for the internet which makes it much easier for useful information to be passed on to the public and when enough of us "little bucks" plebians" join together, maybe we can out shout the big bucks and change things back to the way it should be. The first thing we need to tackle is getting the toxins (especially monosodium glutamate and aspartame) out of our food supplies and we don't have time to play around - because they are now saying that alzheimers disease is hitting people in their thirties. At this rate most parents won't be functioning mentally long enough to get their children to a state of independence where they can care for themselves. Even worse is the probablility that these children will develop symptoms much earlier than their parents because they have been fed foods laden with MSG and aspartame since they were old enough to eat baby food.

I used the bloodroot salve almost three weeks ago. I only used a little bit on four small moles, probably the size of a pin head and covered the area with a bandaid. The next morning I had redenss and swelling under my eyes and scabs where the moles were. It looked like I was in a fight! I called the company and was very frustrated. The guy told me that the reaction was normal, and that it would heal. Within the next two days the scab came off of one which is healed, but light in color. On the left side of my face was the bigger mole. It was a little bigger than a pin head, but once the mole fell off the area was bigger.That area has also healed, but is white in color with some darkness around the circled area. Once again I contacted the company and the guy stated that the skin would repigment over time. The problem that I am experiencing now is on my left cheek where I removed three small moles. My excema has flared up, which is making my skin look terrible. I am trying to be patient with this process but it is very frustating. I would not advise using the cream on your face.

About a year ago, I decided to use bloodroot to remove a pencil- eraser-sized mole on the left side of my chin close to the jaw line just below my mouth. I chose the bloodroot/DMSO combination since I understood that the DMSO would speed the process through the skin. I have to say that I was not prepared for what happened. Once I had started the process, though, there was no turning back. I covered just the mole with the bloodroot paste and kept it covered. I reapplied the paste for about a week. First, the mole turned a cheesy looking white. Then, it scabbed over and had a white ring completely around the edge of it. By this time, the whole thing was about the size of a dime. My jaw swelled up and there were shooting pains in it that kept me from sleeping. This really scared me and I contacted someone for advice. I was advised after about six days of applying the salve to stop applying it, just keep the scab area covered,swab around the OUTSIDE of it with peroxide and it would loosen and fall off. This seemed to take a little longer than I anticipated, but when I added a little warm compress, it truly did pop right out. You certainly don't want to rush this - it has to fall out on its own. The back of the "mole" was grayish and smoothe with little dots on it that I assume were the tiny blood vessels that had supplied blood to it. The spot where the mole had been looked like I had taken a paper punch and punched out a circle of skin. I thought I was in for a bad scar, but I started putting vitamin E on it and organic coconut oil. It's been a year now and the spot is not very noticable to anyone but me, and that's because I know its there. I continue to keep it oiled and also use anti-scar products just for good measure. The faint of heart should NOT use bloodroot, especially on their face. Using it on a floppy mole in some inconspicious place covered by clothing would probably be a lot less scary. My mole was fairly large and well anchored, and on my face - not the floppy kind on a stalk. I do think it is amazing stuff, BUT extreme care needs to be taken when using it.

I tried bloodroot bought off ebay last autum (2007) I do like herbal alternate remedies and was quite excited when reading about bloodroot. Looking at my moles for years (and being vain) I rejoiced at the possibility of having them vanish in an easy and scarless fashion (as proclaimed) Got a bit carried away though and decided to eradicate all about 30-40 off them on front and back of torso at once. Thought if they do take a few weeks to heal and might be unseemly in the mean time (plus I won't be able to use the sunbed to avoid pigment scarring) it would be better to do them all at once, rather than one after the other (which would have taken month and month...) The result was major discomfort - after 2-3 applications my body seemed to turn into a sea of skin irritation and itching!!! It really did drive me up the wall and since there was no position in which I could lie painless and itchfree (forget Paracetamol - won't help a bit), I did not realy sleep for 2 weeks.

Now for the benefit of the procedure. Some moles fell off pretty soon (especially the more raised ones) and have vanished hence. Mostly though - especially the smaller ones were still there when the scabs came off and I still have slight reddening around them. For the bigger flat ones - one fell off (with about 5mm of underneath skin tissue leaving a 8mm itching crater in the skin - took about another 10 days to close up and the result is a reddish smoth round scar as big as the mole there used to be. Several other bigger moles did prevail as well and are now suspiciouse looking, i.e. they are now multicoloured and less regular shaped. It does also seem a bit as if I have a few more tiny moles in vicinity to where treated mole on my abdomen. (cannot swear on that though). The post-bloodroot look of the multicolored moles did get me worried and my GP had two biopsised. Fortunately the biopsies were benign. They will still cut them both out completly to make sure though(ergo in the end the bloodroot did help me get rid of two more big moles, by causing the NHS to pay for their excision). If someone were to ask me - don't use bloodroot for the heck of it. Make sure that the moles you treat are really draining your self worth and not just little beauty spots. Consider the options - when I had the biopsis done the process was much more 'comfortable' that the bloodroot procedure, it did not hurt, did not itch and left less scarring yet.

I have successfully used cancemas black salve to remove melanomas and basal cell skin cancers over a 6 yr period.

Greg canton was distroyed by the fda.They will use all the might of the federal government to distroy anyone that threatens the drug/medical money making machine in this and other countries. This medical insurance scam is run to control every aspect of american society and now is threatening to distroy it. Do we really need to have most of the treatments and drugs that are foisted upon us by out wonderfully trained physicians?I had a relative die last yr at the old age of 21 because of our wonderful medicine.

Details:

He was diagnosed as depressed, given antidepressants for 3 yrs and when his heart was effected had two stents put in at 20 and died of a heart attack at 21.

Side effects of most of these drugs are countered by more drugs with more side effects.Sounds like a drug sellers dream.What is the difference between a drug dealer on the street and your doctor?

One makes you feel better and you know it might kill you before you start taking it and you will have to pay for it out of pockit.The other makes you feel worse and you don't know that it is going to kill you before you start taking it but most of it is covered by insurance.

Is cancema and blood root the same thing? I put some cancema on a tiny mole I had on my shoulder - a tiny bit three days in a row. The area around the mole went quite red about 1cm immediately around the mole it was raised up a bit and creamish colour. I covered it with a bandaid each day as it took weeks to heal, but when the scab finally came off the mole had gone. It has slowly healed and now I'm putting a little lavender essential oil on it each day and the scar is disappearing quite noticeably. I am a real fan of this website....thank you. Maily

I just wanted to respond to the person who posted the link for quackwatch.org. I had a look at those pictures, and the people in the before pictures do not look like the same people posted in the after picture -- Not because of what happened to their face due to whatever it was they did, but because the actual hair and facial features such as eyes, eyebrow shape, chin shape, lip shape, etc do not match up. You don't suppose it's possible that maybe, just maybe those photos might not be of the same person, do you?? Gasp! Of course not, quackwatch would -never- intentionally mislead people to believe they say with falsefied photos! (Note the extreme sarcasm with which this is written.) In any case, I am currently using bloodroot paste that I bought off of eBay on a mole on my arm. I will gladly report back when it's gone through the entire process and let you know how it worked for me.

EC: Yes, looking at these photos would scare anyone from using bloodroot! That is exactly what these articles on Quackwatch set out to do -- scare the pants off of people who might be thinking about using traditional herbs. Too bad the (clearly biased) author didn't show a few photos of people using bloodroot who have successfully healed their cancer and skin tumors. These success stories and photographs of the healing process number in the thousands. The photos on that quackwatch page represent your worst case scenario. Why don't they post similar articles when popular medications have nightmarish side effects? Mmmm hmmmmm. They only go after the natural cures and therapies which are neither patentable nor profitable.

The problem with bloodroot is that no research was done on it. I think you should check this out, it might make you change your mind about using this "miraculous cure": http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/Cancer/eschar.html

One danger of using bloodroot paste on skin lesions (apart from risks of severe scarring) is that the user has no way of knowing if a tumor has been completely removed. As a pathologist, I know that malignant tumors often spread well beyond what's visible to the naked eye. Incomplete removal with bloodroot could result in extensive tumor spread or metastasis (a PubMed literature search (available online) turns up a number of cases where this has happened).

The aftermath of home use of bloodroot could be extensive surgery, plastic surgery repair and treatment for metastatic cancer. Physicians would prefer not to pursue these costly options, but to take care of the problem right away with simple procedures so that patients do not suffer unnecessarily. Please reconsider your endorsement of bloodroot products, as they are dangerous and ineffective.

Better But With Side Effects

Well I have mixed feelings about Bloodroot.

Yes, I have seen it remove "so called tumors". I have used it to remove moles, etc, and it did a great job. People told me that it would not react if there was nothing cancerous, but this is not true. It did in fact burn skin which I put it on as an experient. I had this "white head" gland under the skin on my face. I hated it because ever so often it would fill up with a white waxy goo. I wanted to see if I could take that gland out with some bloodroot so I put some on, covered it with a bandaid and within 24 hours, my whole face was swollen, eyes swollen nearly shut. It scared me and was very painful. A few days later a hugh tumor like thing came out, but it was shaped exactly the same shape as where I had put the bloodroot which let me know that it was burning ALL the skin I had put it on and then causing a scab, which some people may be mistakingly calling tumors.

Could these hunks of flesh simply be scar tissue from the deep skin burns that bloodroot causes? Well it took out the gland which came loose with the scab, but I mashed aound on the scab that came out, and there was no "tumor", just dead burned skin with an oil gland in the enter. So if there was no skin cancer there to begin with, then why did it burn my skin?

Now I had something like a third degree burn on my face that has left a huge scar on my face. It's a raised scar called a keloid, and the pigment is gone too, so if my skin tans, I have this huge white spot on my face. So here's what I say about bloodroot. It may work in some cases, but unless you want a huge scar, think twice about using it, and never use it on your face unless you don't care being called "scarface" for the rest of your life. Aren't there some bonified scientists out there who want to do some testing on this powerful herb??

I mean, come on, where's their sense of adventure? There may not be any money in it, but I've seen people spend small fortunes on less exciting experiments. Someone definately needs to test out this POWERFUL herb and see what it's vices and virtues are, because as I say IT'S A POWERFUL herb.

PS: I used it on a cancerous tumor on an elderly cat, and it took the tumor off, but she was dead within a month. Seems like the cancer seems to spread within her quicker. I wonder if it was because I disturbed it with the bloodroot, and didn't get it all. I'll never know. It was worth a try as I didn't have enough money for vet surgery, but she died anyway.

So I don't know about this drug. In my opinion much more studying needs to be done. I'm sure Bloodroot is great for certain things, and I certainly don't want to be overly skeptical, but... just so little is known about how to actually harness it's powers. I want it to be the miracle that cancer victims all hope for, but we just don't know for sure yet and well....just proceed with caution. Even natural things can kill if you don't know the correct way to use them.

My experience hasnt been so good with bloodroot. I put it on a small mole on my arm to test it, and one on my thigh. It did what everyone else has said - scabbed, turned black, got a white ring, fell out. but now, ive got 2 hideous hypertrophic scars (red and raised) which my surgeon says will take years to fade. the one on my arm is about 1cm diameter while the mole was originally only about 2mm. There are complications with revising hypertrophic scars so for the mean time im stuck with them. Im not usually prone to hypertrophic scarring either. The freaky part is that beneath the scar there is a dark patch where the mole appears to be growing back. Now I feel like there are bigger things to worry about than permanent scars - like has the Bloodroot made a way for mole cells to access beneath the skin? If so am I at risk of melanoma? Someone please help me out.

I healed 2 skin tags with bloodroot paste. Around Thanksgiving of '05, I noticed a small skin tag on my cheek, and it began to grow in size. I also discovered another one growing in my scalp near my temple. By Christmas, they both had grown and discolored, one the size of a pea and another the size and height of a dime. Not having medical insurance or much $, I decided to try a bloodroot remedy I read about in a book. After searching online, I purchased a small container of Bla-Cansema Black Salve on Ebay. I applied a thin coat on the pea-sized skin tag following the directions. They did say that I should feel a slight stinging/burning sensation. I became a bit skeptical when I felt nothing from the treatment; but decided to leave the dried coating on the skin tag for few days.

I went about my life forgetting about the bloodroot paste on my cheek until a scab that had formed over the skin tag began to peel off. So I removed it; to my great surprise the most of it was gone! After a second application, the whole skin tag disappeared leaving just a slight discoloration. I next applied an application to the skin tag under my scalp. This one was even easier; it disappeared with one treatment. It has now been over a month, and there is no sign of these skin tags on my face and scalp. This paste cost me little over $40; simple applications with no associated discomfort, side effects or pain. I see why doctors and pharmaceutical companies are worried.

I used dried bloodroot, pounded into a fine powder and mixed with a little DMSO to cure skin cancer carcinoma. I developed a 'thing' that at first I thought was a zit that wouldn't go away on my face.... I kinda ignored it for 2 months, until I had to admit the possibility that after 30 years in the Arizona sun, I had skin cancer. Having no health insurance, I researched it online, and ran across the bloodroot paste. I decided to try my own concoction of raw, dried bloodroot, pounded into a fine powder, and mixed with DMSO into a paste. Killed the cancer in the spot on my face in a few days- unfortunately, I let it go long enough, the scar is taking a while to heal, because it had progressed pretty quickly before I took action. Last week, a suspicious spot began forming on my hand- I mixed up my bloodroot/DMSO paste, put it on, covered it with a band-aid; the first day, not much, but the second day, after a fresh application, I began feeling a deep down, creepy crawly itch, and when I took the band-aid off the next day, it was nuked! Bloodroot works, but needs a booster to really get it delivered into the skin- just mixed with water, oil or whatever is a very slow process.

Black Salve and "Tonic" from yahoo group "blacksalveandpetswithcancer" for a lump. I had a cancerous tonsil removed, but still had an almond-sized lump under my jaw. The lump seems gone. You can see photos at: http://tinyurl.com/zmwos. The tonic has chapparal, graviola, neem and andrographis. I recommend looking at the yahoo group posts and files for more information. Most in the group felt Essiac tea was not as effective as the Tonic. In fact, Essiac tea sometimes enlarged the tumors. I was to have 40 rounds of chemo/radiation; but the salve worked in 20 days and I believe the entire tumor was removed. I will continue drinking the Tonic.

Cansema cured 5 skin cancers. my friend told me it cured her melanoma on her leg and so I tried it after two surgeons failed to get rid of mine. Good thing mine wasn't melanoma or I would have been dead! Anyway after 10 days, all cancer came out and it worked 100%. My doctor is very pleased and wishes she could sell it, but it's not FDA approved because it's a simple herb that the pharmaceuticals can't make any money off of. It's sad that there are cures that people go to jail for all in the name of greed. I use cansema from simpledefeat.com and they are great!
