Bloodroot: A Medicinal Plant

Moles

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.

Used black salve on several unusual skin growths. I have had the same experience you have had. At one point, I had figured out that the "black spot" below skin was a crater still filling in under the protective covering of the layer of skin on top. How have your scars resolved? Thank you!

Yes i have tried the bloodroot paste on many things. i 1st used it on a weird lump i had on my thigh.my doctor had told me it was just fibers under my skin and not to worry, but i had to get rid of it, it just naged me to be there. so i did a search and tought bloodroot paste might work. and guess what it did. it also got rid of my skin tags. and 1 time out of 5 it left a scar. i think its because i bandaged it with, because the other times i didnt and it left'nothing..

After using Indian mud from the Nyes corp., for years with great success, I find now that the FDA has stopped them from making it or selling it, butt out big brother!

EC: Indian Mud is another term for Bloodroot.]

I make a bloodroot salve that is great on skin tags if you catch them when they first pop up. As far as getting rid of older ones, I'm not so sure. It may work, but the friend who is trying it has been at it awhile with no noticable difference.

Does anyone have an idea of the ingredients of the salve Gina made in 2007? I have dried bloodroot but don't want to make it too potent. Hoping to use it with olive oil. And do you think she used zinc chloride? and if so how much?

I have used this salve with great results. It was suggested to me by a Naturapathic DR. I would recommend it to others. GREAT for boils! Works quickly.

I use bloodroot paste on moles and skin tags. As everyone says, it does cause moderate pain and redness. I apply it for 3 days with a bandaid over it and then I apply neosporn or bag balm for 3 days with a bandaid and the mole or tag falls off by itself at the root level. The area then heals and within a few weeks there is no sign of damage.

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.


Discoid Lupus: Warning, Pigment Removed

I have been studying about Discoid Lupus for some time now. I have had pre-cancer spots removed but was subsequentially diagnosed with Discoid. I used Blood Root oil on several places on my chest not knowing if it was pre-cancer or discoid and to my surprise the lesions went away after about three weeks. The only problem with this treatment is that it removed the pigment from those areas and are now white and it is impossible to cover them. I am presently using the same treatment for the lesions on my face hoping for the same result knowing that I will lose pigment but that is better than the red, raised, scaly lesion.

Hi Eve, I read you message one Earth Clinic about using Blood root for Discoid Lupus. I know you wrote this back in 2007. I too have discoid lupus and was considering to use blood root. You mentioned that the blood root worked but it also removed the pigment of your skin. Since then has the pigment returned & are you truly satisfied with the results of using blood root? I would really appreciate hearing more on how it helped you.
Thanks for the article.
Polly

Diagnosed with discoid lupus, been reading and researching everything I come across, I would like to correspond with Evie if she sees this message. I notice that cold water and ice packs help my skin a lot.. with the high temps this year it has really been a struggle. I am considering using Essiac tea as a cleanse; however, if there is a better option, I would love to learn if it.


Discoid Lupus: Warning, Pigment Removed

Hi Eve, I was diagnosed as having discoid lupus more than ten years ago. the raised scaly patch of red and white on my right cheek, right eyebrow above and below and now my ears which I'm suspecting could well be actinic keratosis. we live in a small town, with very little faith in the doctors and most people are into natural remedies. Today I happened upon a chinese practioner, I now have bloodroot around the edges of my cheek. I was fearful of what if... but what could be worse after all these years, so pleased I happened upon your blog. gives me a bit of reassurance. if you can help in greater detail id be more than thankful in being rid of discoid. at the moment my cheek is burn ing and feels like it has swelled in places on my lesion. not sure if that's a normal reaction. the bloodroot has been spread around the edges of the discoid on my unaffected skin and covered in bandaids. please advise on further treatment or proper use. email: moanab2009(at)hotmail(dot)com

Right now, I am in the process of using a black salve (bloodroot paste) to treat a spot on my arm. From what I understand from the website of the company that sold it to me, it is working just as it should. I used this product on a similar spot on one of my legs about two years ago and it did the same way and healed completely. Although I did not have these spots diagnosed by a doctor, I believe they are cancerous. (My family has had many cases of skin cancer,including melanoma.) I know of several people who have also used this black salve with great success. I would recommend it to anyone. Hey, try it and if it doesn't seem to work, get to a doctor! Cindy

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.

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

Moles

My husband had a large mole on his back that has increased in size over the years. He's very anti-doctor. After some extensive research he decided to try the bloodroot paste. It has worked perfectly, just as described. Be prepared, it can be VERY painful, especially with a bigger lesion, but he is very satisfied with the results. I am an RN, and I am amazed by the results and complete and total removal of the mole. He now has a nice pink, granulated wound that I'm certain will heal quickly without infection. Had he had conventional surgery, I'm certain he would have had a much larger wound with the probable need for a skin graft. We are very satisfied with the results.

How do you heal the hole that is left and how long does it take do you leave it covered or uncovered you put something on it?

I used bloodroot on my forehead and nose. Cure is the wrong word but it definitely removed basal cell carcinomas VERY effectively.. Definitely as well as in office surgery from dermatologist. I have been fighting actinic Keratosis and basal cell skin cancers going on 20 years. The first 10 years were in the hands of Traditional Medical Doctors and the practices and medicines they can "Legally" prescribe. The last 10 have been with alternative tactics and with every bit as good of results or better than the knife or the creams and products offered by Dermatologist.

It is sad that the FDA has become as big a problem as the problems it was designed to stop. There is no doubt 99% of the people that work for the FDA have good intentions, unfortunately the system is broken and many of them are in denial that it is. It is their job we are talking about.

It is my belief that they have gone too far in stopping companies that sell bloodroot from allowing unsolicited testimonials from being posted on the web because it might give people the idea that this stuff actually works...

It works.. I know.. I am a very experienced and satisfied user and it it frustrates me to no end to think they are denying "we the people" of the right to that information.

I have just returned from Abadiania, Brasilia, where John of God with the help of God, heals people from all ailments, including hiv. He performs some physical operations but most are spiritual operations.

I interviewed many people, some of whom were given only months to live by their doctors, they are now fully recovered and return to Abadiania every year to say thank you.
