Most of us would agree that receiving a diagnosis ending in “oma” or with the word “cancer” in it is not a very comforting experience. As cancers go, however, slow-growing basal cell carcinomas are one of the least dangerous types. Although basal cell carcinoma incidence is increasing,1 with over four million cases diagnosed in the United States each year,2 these common skin cancers are extremely unlikely to spread or cause serious harm.
Nonetheless, dermatologists recommend surgery for nearly all cases of basal cell carcinoma. Are there other options? When I had a basal cell carcinoma, I took a different treatment path. Although it was not always fun or pretty, I share my story in case it is instructive to others.
TAKING IT ON THE CHIN
I initially ignored—for a couple of years—what I not-so-affectionately called a “zit from hell” on my chin just below my lower lip. With a minor background in nursing, I admit that having a sore that would not heal ought to have been a red flag. However, I didn’t think much about it, assuming that its stubborn refusal to go away might simply be the result of my incessant efforts to remove the latest scab. (By the way, I do not recommend the strategy of ignoring something that persists beyond a few weeks. It is always safer to have suspicious skin growths checked out.)
At some point, a reader of my blog told me about a presumed “wart” that would not go away because it was actually a skin cancer. I was sick of the sore on my chin by then, and I decided to show it to our family doctor, just in case. (I love this doctor because, even when he does not agree with me, he just chuckles in a friendly way and says, “OK! I just have to tell you what I think, but it’s up to you what you do with the information!”) After a biopsy confirmed that it was a basal cell carcinoma, my doctor referred me to a dermatologist for surgery.
I consider surgery, even on an outpatient basis, as a fairly major and costly intervention, so I decided to defer the surgery option. Instead, I maintained my nutrient-dense diet, which includes cod liver oil and plenty of healthy fats from pastured animals. With help from friends, I also began collecting information about less invasive methods of dealing with basal cell carcinomas, including frankincense essential oil and highly concentrated vitamin C paste.3
Over the course of this research, I came across an article by Dr. Tom Cowan about cancer salves4 as an effective treatment for non-melanoma skin cancers.5 At around the same time, people began suggesting that I use something called “black salve.” Black salve is what is known as an escharotic—a mixture of an herb (or botanical) with a mildly caustic mineral.6 Black salve combines bloodroot and zinc chloride, at a minimum.
One of my readers reported, “I have used black salve on very many suspicious spots, and if it is cancer, moles or warts, it works wonders!” Another reader shared a similar “thumbs-up for black salve,” describing it as “awesome stuff.” That person stated, “My dad used it to get rid of a cancer on his face. After applying it, the little mole pulled itself out of his face and created a HUGE monstrous-looking wound but then healed, and the skin underneath looked like a baby’s!” After hearing these stories, I decided to give black salve a try.
USING BLACK SALVE
As many other people have noted, black salve is not for the faint-hearted (see sidebar for instructions on how to apply it). When I was three days into applying the black salve on my basal cell carcinoma, I woke up in the middle of the night with the feeling of something being very wrong. My lip felt like I had been numbed at the dentist. I hurried into the bathroom and could see that my whole bottom lip was huge and swollen. I could feel it on the inside, like it had burned a hole through my lip, and there was inflammation all around it. On the outside, it looked like I had a fat lip.
My heart started racing. I just “knew” that I had permanently disfigured my face. I thought, “How stupid of me to try to get rid of this naturally! I should have just had the surgeon take it off like normal people do!” I quickly removed the band-aid and wiped all the leftover salve off of my chin. Knowing that there was nothing else I could do at that point, I went back to bed in a sweat and prayed my guts out, praying “Lord, please don’t let this be permanent!” I was worried and freaked out.
My lip remained fat all morning. By noon, however, all of the swelling had gone down, and I could tell that my lip was still intact. I was very happy to see that my face even looked normal again! I left it alone and waited to see what would happen next. What happened was that it turned into a monster scab. (Strictly speaking, it is called an eschar, not a scab.) For the most part, I didn’t care how it looked, but it was a little embarrassing at church because it was very big and dark. I made myself leave it alone, and after about three days, it essentially fell off.
A couple of months after using the black salve, I could feel a bump again. This time, I resigned myself to having surgery to get the dumb thing cut out for good. I made an appointment for about a month later. At the appointment, the surgeon looked at it and sent me off to schedule an excision procedure in another couple of months.
The day before the scheduled surgery, I looked at the spot more closely. I realized that the bump had not changed at all over the past several months, and it occurred to me that the bump was probably just scar tissue. I decided to cancel the surgery. Understandably, the surgeon was not happy with me for canceling with one day’s notice, but I saw no reason to spend time and money on a procedure that I clearly did not need. Since that time, the bump has remained unchanged, and I can’t even see it unless the light is just right.
I also used the black salve to take off a hard, raised spot on my arm that had been there for a year or two. It was not skin cancer, but it had persisted unchanged for a while. I applied a little of the black salve—just enough to go over the spot—and covered it with a band-aid, as per the instructions. It hurt and itched a little—and then, after producing another doozy of a scab, it was gone for good.
VITAMIN C PASTE
Vitamin C paste is another safe, topical way to remove basal cell carcinomas. The website DoctorYourself.com notes that “vitamin C is selectively toxic to cancer cells but does not harm healthy skin cells.”3 (This selective toxicity is also a feature of black salve, which will only “go after” cancerous or abnormal tissue.7) A reader of my blog described how she followed the vitamin C protocol: “I used one teaspoon of [GMO-free] ascorbic acid powder and added filtered water drop by drop to make a paste. I then caked the paste on the spot and let it dry. The dried vitamin C just flakes off when dried. I did that three to four times a day, for three to four days, until the area was rough and painful. I would then give the area three to four days to heal and do the process all over again. It took several weeks because this basal cell carcinoma was a type that burrows in deep beneath the surface of the skin. (I did not realize that there were different types of basal cell carcinomas until I started reading in-depth about them.) I decided to persevere and keep using the vitamin C paste until I thought the basal cell carcinoma was completely eradicated. When I went for the biopsy, the area was still rather raw-looking, but the lesion itself was gone. DoctorYourself.com gives more details about how to follow the protocol.”
OUR FRIEND THE SUN
Even after my basal cell carcinoma diagnosis and warnings to stay out of the sun, I believe that it is important to get adequate sun exposure. The sun is the best way to get vitamin D, as long as you don’t burn. Sunscreens (which generally are loaded with who-knows-what chemicals) block most vitamin D. I would rather deal with another not-dangerous basal cell carcinoma than be susceptible to a much more serious disease from having vitamin D that is too low.
According to Dr. Tom Cowan,5 the sun has nothing to do with melanomas (the most dangerous skin cancers). Dr. Michael Holick, vitamin D expert and author of The Vitamin D Solution, agrees, giving readers of his book “permission” to go out in the sun.8 Dr. Joseph Mercola notes that melanomas are more common on parts of the body not exposed to the sun at all and also more common in people who work indoors than those who work outside.9
NATURAL REMEDIES ARE POWERFUL
There are many different types of skin cancer, and there is no doubt that some are dangerous and fast-growing and require speedier treatment. It is a good idea to get weird skin spots checked out, particularly if they hurt, itch or bleed and persist longer than three or four weeks.
Most people do not know about black salve or vitamin C paste, perhaps because both represent affordable options that would put quite a dent in surgeons’ pocketbooks if more people used them instead of resorting to surgery. As my experience with black salve suggests, natural remedies can be very effective but also quite powerful. Treat them with respect. It is important to do your own research, work with a naturopath or holistic doctor, if necessary, and always use common sense.
WHERE TO GET BLACK SALVE
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) believes that it is part of its job to discredit alternative cancer therapies as “fake cancer cures,” and unfortunately, it has done a good job of closing down some black salve producers.
If you plan to purchase black salve, it is important to do your research and obtain a good-quality salve. One excellent black salve product comes from the Ecuador-based Alpha Omega Labs. Their “Amazon Black Tropical Salve” (formerly sold as Cansema) is available in the U.S. at herbhealers.com/salves-creams-tonics.
The black salve product that I used was Virxcan Sun Skin Salve, available at a variety of natural health websites. Virxcan also comes in tablet form for both internal and surface growths.
The Black Salve Info website (blacksalveinfo.com/instrbs.htm) provides detailed information about how to apply black salve and what to expect during the healing process.
TWO SALVE RECIPES AND INSTRUCTIONS
The following recipes and instructions come from a Native American woman who shared this wisdom in the 1970s.
BLACK CANCER SALVE: Mix and add water to make a thick paste. Cook for 30 minutes in double-boiler (not aluminum).
• 1/2 cup powdered bloodroot • 1/2 cup zinc chloride • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
YELLOW HEALING SALVE:
• 1 pint pure linseed oil (raw) • 1 piece of rosin (size of walnut)
• 2 ounces beeswax • 1/2 ounce oil spike (lavender solvent)
Carefully heat the linseed oil to boiling (beware, as linseed oil is flammable). Add the rosin and stir until melted. Remove from burner and allow to cool somewhat. Add the beeswax. Just before it starts to thicken, add the oil of spike, stir thoroughly and allow to thicken. Store in a suitable container.
TESTING FOR CANCER: Apply a small amount of the black salve (no more than 1/8 inch thick) to the suspected area,
cover with a band-aid, press lightly and leave on for 30 minutes. You may experience strange sensations during this time. Remove the band-aid. If the salve remains on the skin, there is cancer in that immediate area. If the salve remains on the band-aid, there is no cancer in that area. This salve will only react on cancer.
REMOVING CANCER: This treatment will make a bad-looking sore, and there will be pus, sometimes with blood, that
forms around the core of the cancer. There will be much redness around the cancer while it is working, and there may be considerable swelling and even fever. A lot of pain may be experienced while the roots are being killed. This indicates that the cancer has reached an advanced stage, so be brave and thank the Lord that your life is being spared by these two salves.
STEP ONE: Apply the BLACK salve (1/8 inch thick) over the cancer and cover with gauze or a large band-aid. A small skin cancer might be smaller than a dime (about 2 cm) while a large cancer might be larger than a half-dollar (about 4 cm). Leave this salve on for twenty-four hours, then remove and thoroughly clean and dry the area.
STEP TWO: Apply the YELLOW salve. Over the next five days, keep the yellow salve in contact with the area being treated and cover with gauze or a large band-aid. It may be necessary to clean and replace the salve several times a day, as the cancer will enter into a stage of running or oozing pus sometimes mixed with blood. This is to be expected.
STEP THREE: On the sixth day, reapply the BLACK salve for twenty-four hours.
STEP FOUR: Apply the YELLOW salve as per Step Two.
STEP FIVE: Repeat entire process until there is no reaction. Sometimes more than one core may be formed—be sure to remove all of the cancer.

Thanks for sharing your story and providing resources at the bottom. Very helpful!
For the yellow healing salve, could you please clarify what type of “rosin”?
I look forward to making some!
Black salve is also very useful for insect bites. If there is venom (Lyme or other disease) it will react, making the spot red and then there will be that lump that comes out. If there’s nothing in the bite the salve does nothing. I use Vaseline between black salve treatments. It is good to keep the skin moist to help it heal. Otherwise you’ll be left with a scar.
Bob Bonnen says
Are there other know uses for the hello salve mentioned above?
Dr T says
you didn’t follow the directions– 24 hours is the maximum
I am a little worried as I applied some Cansema to a funny looking spot, was a bit like an old insect bite that healed over. I didn’t bleed or anything but looked funny. Doctor said it was nothing to worry about. Anyhow, 1st application un-stirred didn’t do anything, paste on bandage, just mild redness. 24h later 2nd application cause a white scab and a few white spots, as I cleaned white stuff came out so I decided to apply a little again. This is the fun part. Happened pretty much as you felt, some pain but not too bad, paste was on skin but washed off leaving a white scab with a bit of black underneath. I am just wondering if it this is “normal” behavior for non cancerous areas. I am concerned that it took 3 applications and have no idea how deep it is, whatever it is. Also if the scab doesn’t come off would it be advisable to add a little more salve to the area or just leave it? How do you know if you need to re-apply. You mentioned to keep applying if more than one core is found… how do you know if there is more than one?
Suzanne Marie says
We regular black salve users re-salve til there is no response….as it only works on abnormal cells, once clear of the abnormal, it does nothing on healthy skin. You wait til it heals some then re-apply. I did some of mine 6 times. I used hot shower to ease my discomfort/itch. Putting the hand held nozzle right on the spot made me shudder in a good way.
Heat also speeds up the process and can help kill cancer. Hyperthermia therapy has commonly been used in history as an important healing ritual.
Suzanne Marie says
The white that comes after application is the result of your lymphatic system engaging with the salve and removing the abnormal cells. You leave it alone and let it fall away when the ‘dry eschar’ or scab is ready to come off. It can take a week sometimes…if quite deep, longer. Keep moist under the band aid with vit E or bit of coconut oil. Mine are always more active if kept moist. If white is left in the hole, let heal a bit then re-apply. I removed 26 brown spots on my face and several had cancer cells going by the reaction. It only responds to ‘abnormal cells’ so it seems age spots/sun spots are abnormal and ugly so good riddance. I had larger brown spots speckling my chest that I removed as well and pos melanoma. Earlier years of sun burns catching up with me.
Hi Suzanne Marie,
Would you by chance have photos of your process? I too have spots on my face which are know are cancerous and I’m really nervous to start the application process until I see a successful one like you. I have on my chest some dark spots and some abnormal looking spots that turn red and “look angry” at times when I either rub in the shower or they get tanned. Your testimony is exactly what I have by the sounds of it. Any information you share would be appreciated. Is email contact ok between us?
Is there a store that sells the yellow healing salve? Thanks
Brittany B says
alkalineluxe.com has a gold healing salve and a bunch of other amazing healing products. Check them out
I am also wondering what type of rosin? From what tree?
Violin bow rosin any good?
Hi Kelly. Any hints on using BS internally thru blood system?
Thank you. Jerry
Alpha Omega make a liquid. Check their website.
Hi Jerry, Try this website: http://cancerblacksalve.com/ and look at the download booklets available. They used to have a story about a man who healed his stomach cancer right before surgery by swallowing some black salve. This was years ago. I don’t have good internet access for loading things, but it should be there somewhere.
Maureen Baker says
my basal cell biopsy is positive . it is on my top left side of my lip. I have had other basal cell spots surgically removed. can I use this salve on my mouth?
Suzanne Marie says
I had a tan spot right that had been flaky for years at my lip line and used it no problem. I should do it again actually.
Graeme Pile says
Black salve works a treat.
Had mole on leg that when i touched it, I could feel it travel up my leg.
Applied black salve for a week eack night and today it came away.
Looking after new skin now.
Victor Tatro says
Really would like to know the type of rosin, as Isa and Joy asked.
Anne Glenn says
Extremely dangerous product!
Extremely effective. I have experienced and seen some impressive results with black salve.
Maia L Berens says
I used black salve on my toe and it seems whatever it was is now kind of stuck. I tried using it a second time and it burned a lot and then I did it a third time and nothing but it has been a few weeks and it isn’t coming out. If I press on it, it hurts a bit and feels like something hard is in there but I don’t know what to do next.
Suzanne Marie says
I would re-apply but rough up the skin a little so there is better entry. Scratching or pin pricks…I scrape my skin lightly with a dental tool. Keep covered and moist with vit E or coconut oil after you have a reaction…waiting 24 hours.
I have the following experience, used cansema twice 10 yrs ago.
History of a stage 2 primary melanoma so when another mole changed texture and started itching I went to dermatologist and suggested an experiment. I would use a stencil to treat only half with cansema, let it heal, which it did beautifully, having taken a neat little plug out of half the mole, a D shape! Pink new skin beneath. She then cut her half and my new scar out plus a margin, and sent the whole lot to the lab. It came back as melanoma in situ, another primary! which means early stage melanoma. And get this – the lab confirmed there was no cancerous tissue in the healed skin where I’d used cansema! She later took another 5mm cut round the whole thing to be certain and I have an ugly scar on my arm, instead of a little pale circle which I think the cansema would have left.
Prior to my efforts I tested a mole on the corresponding position on the other arm, also on nearby normal skin, and over the site of my previous melanoma, on my belly. Nothing happened except some reddening, because I burned my belly slightly. Nothing at all on my arm, so I proceeded with the test.
HOWEVER. The danger here is that
A. You don’t have a diagnosis if you treat yourself without advice
B. You don’t have a diagnosis if you don’t have a biopsy first, which involves cutting it out anyway (I don’t like the idea of disturbing a primary melanoma and letting it seed from a punch biopsy which bleeds)
C. If it’s a nasal cell carcinoma, you’ve no idea whether it’s a deep one or not
D. Because I get the impression that success depends on enough cansema for the size of growth you have, you may not get it all. It takes guts, having experienced the pain, to put yet more mucky black stuff on a still open wound swimming in pus, let me tell you! You may thus not go back in with more.
There have been cases of people who have used it on their faces, not wanting a large scar, but they’ve not got it all and ended up losing an eye or nose when their cancer returned. True stuff. Pictures are out there
Having had this success and proof of concept I then tackled a mole on my lower shin which the doc wouldn’t agree to remove. There was a lump underneath. I applied a dollop of cansema about 2cm across and hunkered down for the pain. Boy oh boy did it bite! I believe I was right, but the hole went way beyond the mole, through full skin thickness and into what little muscle covers the shin bone. Eventually it healed over, from the edges in, very slowly, and paper thin. It did eventually toughen up a bit but was really a candidate for a skin graft. I’m still very careful with it a decade later. My foot ballooned because I think lymphatic drainage was damaged, and every summer that ankle still swells. I’m not sorry I did it, but I think the circulation down there was not very good so inflammation was high and healing was poor. Evidenced by lots of brown discolouration and spots around the wound, the type you tend to see on elderly ladies legs with poor circulation! I was 50. I think I should have insisted the doc biopsied instead, but I’m using NHS in the UK, and they call the shots!. Having tested nonsuspicious moles, and plain skin before, I’m sure abnormalities have some unique feature that cansema bites into. I did have that.
I’m here now wondering whether to offer it to a friend who has a persistent cauliflower-like growth by her thumb nail, probably a wart. The doc has already had a cut at it and failed.
Anyway, be careful, interact with your doctor, and get a punch biopsy after you’ve used it, if you’re going to. Tell them about my experiment if it helps.
God bless you.
Suzanne Marie says
I used black salve on my face and chest several times on the spots that left some root/white in the salving hole…which naturally closes up and smooths over when healed. If white shows in the hole, then salve again when it heals to get all of the cancer. Drs cutting cancer out can always leave a root behind…where as the salve will keep at it til it’s ‘done’.
Derek Bebbington says
I have heard of people taking black salve in a capsule for internal cancers. Would anyone know about or have any advice concerning this?
I realize you posted 2 1/2 years ago, but maybe this will still help someone…
Here is an informational “pamphlet” about the various ways to use black salve and the types of situations it can help. One impressive example was stomach cancer in the 1960s.
I haven’t bothered coming back with a comment as I pretty much messed my back, what I had was minor and should have left it as it was, the Cansema actually spread lower and only removed half of the skin but managed to take quite a snap from the healthy skin.
As an experiment I applied the Cansema to clear healthy skin after scratching it a bit, this was done in accordance with instructions, to slightly break the skin so that the Cansema can go in.
It reacted with the healthy skin and caused the exact same effect, only smaller. Itchy, stings, redness and then the black scab.
I have taken some photos of the application:
My advise would be to ONLY use it if and only if you are sure about it. I would also advise to go to your doctor first and check whatever you have out. You can probably apply Cansema to skin tags, warts, bumps and bits that don’t matter and would probably cost you a bit if you had it done professionally. Anything serious go see your doctor.
Kenneth Gardner says
I would suggest that the “healthy” skin needed to come out, too. I used it on my primary spot of concern after using it on a “test” spot that was also suspicious. It look care of the primary spot, but the test spot turned out to be a big eschar (and a third, more significant spot about 2 inches away to which I hadn’t applied the salve to went away in the process!) The black salve is supposed to only target cancer cells. I had someone apply it to a wart, and nothing would happen.
Cancer is a viral disease. Virus destroys mainly end cells (matured cells in Q
compartment), to which the organism responds with chronic inflammation and
increased proliferation to restore the organ and clean the debris. In this
chronic inflammation tumor may emerge. When stem cells are hit, the entire
Tissue Proliferation Unit disappears, to which the organism responds with
dysplasia, carcinoma in situ, carcinoma, etc… According to the hypothesis of
professor Zajicek MD, tumor protects against cachexia (muscle loss, wasting
manifested as fatigue and weight loss). Every cure, which silences the disease
driver, namely virus, cures cancer. Muscle loss is seen in all cancer types.
Cancer is one disease. Example: Fever is a defensive mechanism. Plus two
degrees protects while plus five kills. As long as tumor does not block any
vital function or causes pain, it should be left untreated. Patient should keep
her tumor as much as possible. Some people find alternative treatments, like
Ann Vigmor diet, very helpful. With a treatment strategy of tumor dormancy and
with host resistance to virus , only minimal doses of medication may be
required. Tumor dormancy is a state:when tumor shrinks or stop growing. In any
case patient feels healthy.
Jeff Johns says
“As long as tumor does not block any vital function or causes pain, it should be left untreated. Patient should keep her tumor as much as possible.”
So . . . just let it be? Who would want to “keep” their tumor? Sounds a bit risky, don’t you think?
Otis Cushman says
An In depth book learning Cancer knowledge. Have you had the virus?
youtube: Doctor Otis channel search will reveal that if I had listened to your oratory
“… tumor….left untreated. Sounds like a student lecturing child,. After Threes yrs of cutting me, VA, then on to chemo NO WAY I said. (prescribing doctors get KICKBACKS on chemo, a WW1 combat gas deployed by Germany after the French and English failed in their efforts to gas the Germans). Pinhas I think you are set on Pharmaca which means 90% of those you advise are dead in 5 years.
Good Luck on pharma.
i would also like info on taking bs internally
i know it works externally but can i take it as a blood cleanse
Alpha Omega make a liquid. Should be on their website
There is information on internal and other uses here: http://www.cancerblacksalve.com/COMPOUNDX2.doc
Also, Best On Earth Products makes black salve capsules, black salve, yellow healing salve, and total care body wash, all of which I have used.
Dave Smith says
Go to Bestonearth.com and get the black salve capsules. They don’t contain the ingredient that causes the chemical-like burning. They contain bloodroot, burdock root. graviola and chaparral. I am taking it for prostate issues right now.
I have been using black sauve for my breast cancer. Going two weeks now. And also hydrogen peroxide 3% 3 times per day and change the bandage. It is very pussy and runny I have apply the black sauve about 6 times diring this time over the sore area. I found it impossible to clean away all the junk.
The wound smell a little funny. Is this normal? How would i know if the cancer gone in that area? The area is very sore and full of thick pus and raw
Otis Cushman says
Just for you, go to you tube. search Doctor Otis.
Look at results of search, find yellow circle with doc otis face on it’ open find 3 videos. first video shows my melanoma removed from back with can x black salve.
I was covered with skin cancer, Calif surfer, US Navy too much sun exposure.
I first was alarmed by the cancer extraction process as you can see on videos. I still am treating with black salve. On my utube channel. look for “ABOUT” explanation for my treatments, cannabis RSO first less evasive, then black salve
My natural health doctor treated a patient with breast cancer using Black Salve (amongst other natural treatments including Ozone therapy). She managed to pull the entire tumour out of the breast! It was hectic, but worked. Unfortunately I don’t have full details of her protocol, as she recently passed away. She also treated a melanoma on my neck. What started out as a small, dangling mole about 2mm in diameter ended up with a very large eschar about 5cm in diameter. It took about 6 weeks to pull the tumour out – one core. There was still some white substance left in the hole, so we treated it some more and around 2 – 3 weeks later the rest fell out. It left a pretty deep hole, but that healed in about 3 days. It was amazing!
We can’t get black salve anymore in this country (South Africa), as it has been made illegal!
Hi, do you know where I could buy the Vitamin C Paste you mention?
And could Black Salve also be helpful in treating liver spots on the face and white spots on the skin? Thank you so much
Black salve did not work well for me when I found on eBay a product that was supposed to be similar and milder and I let my cousin use it and she lost it I can’t remember what it was but it really worked well. Sure wish I knew what it was.
Mike, you are probably refering to Curaderm. I used black salve and it scared me how aggressive it was, so I looked online and found Curaderm. Much gentiler than BS, but it is expensive. I have used it on a bunch of crusties on my face and it works well and isn’t as scary as BS.
I found the recipe for black salve and ordered the ingredients on-line. The recipe made a lot. I used it on a large carcinoma on my nose. It hurt like the dickens and was really ugly. You name it – swelling, white puss – lots of it – large white eschar, pain. But a baby mushroom sized growth popped out at the end. So glad I did it – though I got lots of stares and comments. My Dr wanted to surgically remove it – would have been a very large scar and would have lost half my nose. With black salve my nose has healed beautifully. I am in the process of treating two carcinomas – one on each cheek – right now. I thank God for black salve every day!
Can you please share the recipe you’ve found? There are so many out there, but yours sounds very powerful. Thank you!
Johan Lazet says
Hi my name is Jos and in December last year, we put a pin size amount of black paste on my left back just under the shoulder blade, now, a month later the spot is 40mm round and still active. The pain it causes is in the shoulder joint, and left side but more in the left breast area. This pain is sometimes excruciating and as the spot is in my back it’s hard to sit in a chair, so most time I will lie down on the bed on my right side.
How I wish for this to be over. We put the paste on Monday mornings and evenings and also Tuesdays, the rest of the week it will stay just covert, any comment on how long this can last? regards Jos
