Yowbarb Note: Here is something I just ran across... PLS see original page, supposedly pics there I cannot seem to open up...

PLS Note: Within the article it does say, basal cancer cells have roots and a biopsy being done. (If tests or follow up need to be done, you do not need to do abandon standard medicine.)
That said, in a situation where U do not WANT to use standard medicine, or THERE IS NONE AVAILABLE, this is definitely worth a try!!
I have had ten cancer spots removed from my face and outer upper arm. Due for a re-checkup. Going to make up a batch of this and just use it.

http://www.healthy-holistic-living.com/woman-cured-skin-cancer-home-using-coconut-oil-baking-soda.html

Most people would be skeptical to hear that simple kitchen cupboard ingredients have been used to clear up skin carcinomas. Here is an astonishing account of how one woman managed just that.

Kyneret Azizo is a respected writer and advocate of natural remedies. She has written an account of how she put her knowledge of natural medicine into practice following her mother’s diagnosis with basal cell carcinoma on the crown of her head. This is the less aggressive form of skin cancer, usually classed as non-life threatening as opposed to the more serious malignant melanoma.

Following initial surgery to remove the cancerous lesion Azizo and her mother were concerned when, within a matter of weeks, the lesion reappeared, growing more rapidly than before. The surgeons said they could remove it again but they could offer neither a cure for the basal cell carcinoma nor a guarantee that it would not keep re-occurring.

Azizo then decided to be pro-active and take matters into her own hands utilizing her knowledge and resources to find natural ways to try and treat this cancer. She read extensive accounts of people using baking soda and water to treat this specific cancer as this forms an alkaline environment, which is widely acknowledged as inhibiting cancer cells which only thrive in acidic conditions. Her mother was slightly more reluctant to try non conventional treatments and went on to have two further surgical procedures, but each time the cancer returned quickly. Finally she agreed to try her daughter’s suggestions.

Azizo says “I did a modification on my own, using coconut oil instead of water, because raw organic coconut oil is really efficient in the regeneration of skin cells. I mixed equal parts of baking soda and coconut oil (a teaspoon of each) in a small glass. I was stirring until the mixture became a malleable paste. I applied it on the affected area.”

Astonishingly within days the effects became apparent (see photos below).

Here is the paste that Azizo devised:

– Raw organic coconut oil
–  baking soda
– A shot glass, to effectively mix the paste
– Small stirrer e.g. the narrow handle of a small metal spoon.
– Polysporin Triple 3 Antibiotics, or any other antibiotic ointment to apply at night

Stir equal parts of baking soda and coconut oil in the shot glass. Mix well until you get a malleable paste that is easy to apply. You can also warm the mixture up, so the coconut oil can melt faster – fill a bowl with some hot water and keep the shot glass in it for a while (although in some climates the coconut oil is already melted at room temp).
She says: “Use the handle you stirred with and apply the paste to the affected skin. DO NOT RUB IT IN. Just slather the area with the mixture and leave it as long as possible. You can also apply a shower cap to keep the mixture in place.

During the first week you can do 3 applications, then 2 during the second, but make sure the place is properly cleaned before each application.
The roots of the basal cell actually go deeper in the skin that it appears. It is not just on the surface, so it is important to apply the paste long enough, even after the wound is completely closed.”

On the first day of treatment the paste was applied twice and the scab fell away during the night exposing the basal cell which was described as a fleshy bulb of skin that could easily bleed under minimal pressure. Following five days of treatment this basal cell had begun shrinking. Flaky skin appeared around the old scabbed area but coconut oil, renowned for its’ powerful skin healing and moisturizing properties, cleared up the dry and dead skin cells. After day six the basal cell was no longer visible and all bleeding had ceased. Although the area was still tender it continued to improve, the antibiotic cream was applied at night to aid healing and prevent infection.

At the end of the initial 2 weeks of treatment the open wound was much smaller and they continued using the paste and cream. A week later the wound closed completely. They continued to to apply the baking soda and coconut oil daily, along with apple cider vinegar soaked cotton pads placed over the area to reach the basal cell root. The photo taken on day 38 is remarkable.

How One Woman Cured Her Skin Cancer At Home - Using Coconut Oil And Baking Soda pics

Azizo updated the article in July 2014, explaining that her mother had stopped applying the treatment in April until June, as her mother’s skin was clear until the first week. Once the lesion returned, they began using the same treatment again, and within 2 days, the scabbing cleared up and the skin was regenerating.

This natural remedy has obviously worked on the surface level with the alkaline solution causing it to shrink and disappear, however basal cells have roots beneath the surface. Azizo’s mother is currently waiting for a biopsy to see if this has been cleared also. In the meantime they are continuing with this topical treatment in addition to adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle, which aids the elimination of toxins from the body. They continue with a positive mindset, and are using additional healing practices including reiki, acupuncture and yoga/meditation, as Azizo is also a qualified yoga instructor.

Azizo now says “I would most certainly not go against any mainstream medicine, but I think that medical industry actually made us believe we have no power over our health, and that the solution is far beyond our reach, outlining that only money can buy health. And you would sure agree that this is absolutely false.

During the whole treatment my family witnessed how effective alternative treatments can be. It is also affordable, safe and there are no side-effects. I do not have to mention that for my family mainstream medicine is no longer number one.

I really hope that people who go through a similar struggle would finally understand that they actually have the power in their hands. You can heal yourself! No one will tell you the truth that simple and cheap methods can really help you – especially the medical industry. You must do your own research and take the power in your hands.”

In July 2014, Azizo

Since the SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET was referred to in previous post, here is one link.
PLS note I am not an expert but I am posting to add to the info of the previous post, wherein one woman claimed to accidentally cure her Morgollons by going on the SCD.
I am not sure how this overlaps the ketone diet or the paleo, etc. There must be some similarities. Aolso PLS Note: Socrates has posted info about the ketone diet, other factors in curing cancer and other problems on his own site and in this Topic, here...

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ has helped many thousands of people with various forms of bowel disease and other ailments vastly improve their quality of life. In many cases people consider themselves cured. It is a diet intended mainly for Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, diverticulitis, cystic fibrosis and chronic diarrhea. However it is a very healthy, balanced and safe diet that has health benefits for everyone. The foods that are allowed on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ are based on the chemical structure of these foods. Carbohydrates are classified by their molecular structure.

The allowed carbohydrates are monosaccharides and have a single molecule structure that allow them to be easily absorbed by the intestine wall. Complex carbohydrates which are disaccharides (double molecules) and polysaccharides (chain molecules) are not allowed. Complex carbohydrates that are not easily digested feed harmful bacteria in our intestines causing them to overgrow producing by products and inflaming the intestine wall. The diet works by starving out these bacteria and restoring the balance of bacteria in our gut.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ is biologically correct because it is species appropriate. The allowed foods are mainly those that early man ate before agriculture began. The diet we evolved to eat over millions of years was predominantly one of meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, nuts, low-sugar fruits. Our modern diet including starches, grains, pasta, legumes, and breads has only been consumed for a mere 10,000 years. In the last hundred years the increase in complex sugars and chemical additives in the diet has led to a huge increase in health problems ranging from severe bowel disorders to obesity and brain function disorders. We have not adapted to eat this modern diet as there has not been enough time for natural selection to operate. It therefore makes sense to eat the diet we evolved with.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ was clinically tested for over 50 years by Dr Haas and biochemist Elaine Gottschall with convincing results. From feedback from the various lists and other information at least 75% of those who adhere rigidly to the diet gain significant improvement.

Check out the reviews of the book of the diet by Elaine Gottschall Breaking The Vicious Cycle in our testimonials section, the vast majority give an excellent review.

Adding to Barb's wonderful coconut oil paste recipe, some recipes for Cansema black salve here: https://www.quantumbalancing.com/blacksalve.htm .  Wikipedia warns against it due to skin burning by the ingredient blood root.  As a less-caustic alternative, Christopher's Black Ointment is used by the Amish and does not contain blood root.  Ingredients: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Chaparral Leaf, Comfrey Root, Red Clover Blossom, Mullein Leaf, Plantain Leaf, Chickweed Herb, Lobelia Herb, Golden Seal Root, Marshmallow Root, Poke Root, Pine Tar & Beeswax.

Re: CANCER CURES; trauma
« Reply #81 on: December 06, 2017, 01:55:28 PM »
So, according to Ty Bollinger's Truth About Cancer [ttac] Symposium, curing cancer is about 3 things:
- good nutrition
- detox
- trauma

Now, the trauma aspect is the most elusive [though especially nutrition is also a quite contentious subject]. However, i was just listening to this interview with Eileen Day @ OneRadioNetwork and she claims to be able to deal with past traumas by using tone forks to find traumas within a person's 'aura' [from birth to the present] and to resolve them in this fashion. The wonderful thing about this technique is that it doesn't require the subject to be conscious about whatever trauma is driving them or to go through feeling said trauma [at least not always] in order to release it.
Groundbreaking stuff.

A friend recently talked about a 67-year-old friend of his supposedly dying of throat cancer. So i told him: "Dude, there are SO many cures to cancer; really no one needs to die from it."
Frankly, i think it's about 3 things mainly, i.e. implementing change in these areas:
- spending money on foodstuffs you've never heard of before, i.e. the willingness to put your money where your mouth should be, as it were
- turning your back on friends, family and acquaintances who would naysay both such changes and such financial investments
- accepting that it was severe ignorance that led to your cancer and not fate, bad luck or sin or something

This is what i've been thinking to tell this bloke:
- get yer butt to Spain and soak up loads of sunlight for at least a month. Yeah, he's 67 and he's got his kids and grandkids to think about but, hey, you wanna see them for another 20 years? You wanna see yer grandkids grow up? Then you're gonna have to put in some months for yourself this year or it's gonna be the last year of your life!
- you are not only going to be buying and consuming a wide variety of superfoods but you're also going on a diet. I don't care what you weigh! The diet i just explained on this forum is all about being in ketosis for most of the day and cancer cells can't eat when the body's in a state of ketosis, so that's what you need to go for, for now.
- you need to start working on periods of building and detox, alternately. That means there need to be days with loads of fruit and days with loads of proteins like the kind to be found in the protein powders i've mentioned under diet. We're also talking organ meats, loads and loads of fermented foods, wheatgrass juice, etc.etc.etc. Freaky? McDonald's is freaky; regular supermarket fair is freaky! Time to go over to the good stuff and get the body both clean and building again.
- we're talking loads and loads of good salts, good fats, good spices, beets, orange juice and other alkalinizing foods and top-of-the-line proteins.
- also, get yer butt daily on a rebounder, in a full-spectrum far-infrared sauna and taking long walks barefoot

The last thing ya wanna do is approach the cancer patient as a victim, for it is a victim attitude that got them into their predicament in the first place. After all, did they not show a consistent lack of responsibility and interest in finding out what constitutes good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle? A subconscious death wish can often be found and then people just go with the mainstream flow and opt for death. Such tendencies should be dealt with head on, i think.
Anyway, so this guy opted for death. Thinking back on the way things went, i met with him and he gave me his life story without me asking for it... I mean, he was really so self-involved. No wonder all he could see was his own demise, ultimately. I guess he felt he got it all figured out...

Like accidents, i actually believe that 'disease' is no coincidence. And one either owns that or doesn't; are you 'a victim' or somehow part of what caused all this to happen?
Hard questions...

Frankly, though, this guy wasted my time and screwed over his children and grandchildren by opting out. For what?! A predictable death? C'mon, man, how low are you comfortable setting the bar?
I don't feel pitty for their ilk. This guy's death was no accident and i think the billions who die during TEOTWAWKI may be similarly afflicted. For all i know, at least.

Do you think that down, deep inside, the guy really wanted to die?

I have watched TTAC's video series and it is mind-blowing--all the ways to deal with cancer.  Waaayyyyy more than the average person would ever guess.  And waaayyyyyy more healthful than those toxic chemo's and radiation.  Occasionally surgery is needed, but not always, and once people learn the truth about "The Big Three--Cut, Poison, and Burn" cancer treatments, they can become truly empowered.

Do you think that down, deep inside, the guy really wanted to die?
Yes. I believe most people, convinced of the idea of short life spans [i.e. 80 to 100 years maximum] are very interested in achieving some kind of 'good death'. I've seen people around me live this out, time after time. After all, if you're convinced that's all a person can achieve, then what good is it to try and stretch out your time on Earth? There is logic to it, is what i'm saying; i just can't agree with the sentiment that we were all meant for a mere 100 years...

And then there's the authoritarian paradigm that controls most people's minds and hearts, i.e. if doctors say this or that, then it must be so. Then some people start to doubt... But it's only a starting to doubt, it's not yet a discipline or conviction; therefore, when their doubt leads to more trouble, it's very easy for them to fall back into the default patterns that rule the hearts and minds of the masses. I mean, so you've been complacent and gone along with the masses for 50 years or so; then you get cancer and start reassessing your options... But you're really getting into the game very very late, for you should have been questioning the so-called authorities since you were a teenager!
I'm sure it's ultimately possible to overcome such challenges, but it's not likely. You have your whole conditioning and life experience against change. Now, if one were to consciously take that into account, that might change everything, but then we're talking subtleties these late-bloomers will probably not get around to before they croak...

What goes around comes around; if you've been complacent all of your life, even the threat of death probably won't be enough for you to change your ways sufficiently enough to make a difference. Karma; it is what it is.

Stone cold realism.
I've been speaking of social triage for years. There are just not enough hours in the day to waste on people who are really only janking your chain and not actually interested in what you have to offer. I've wasted years of my life on such people [actually, much more than that; more like my entire life so far].
It's one's own responsibility to sift the chaff from the wheat and invest in people that are worthwhile to oneself personally. It's better for everyone involved, since you will just end up regretting having gotten nowhere and, who knows, maybe the other woulda been better off [though most folk just go around in circles all their life anyway, no matter what you or anyone else does for them].

In the case of PX, clearly most people are callously apathetic and some clearly say things like: "If i die, i die". And to be fair, the good ones among them would not come a'knocking when TSHTF and will stoically accept their fate.
Better to give what one has to give to innocents, like children and animals. Or perhaps to young folk who just haven't had the years to learn or become apathetic. I wouldn't mind if they couldn't pull their weight (yet) in a dire situation and i'd hate to leave innocents out in the cold because i wasted resources on anyone whose will to live is marginal at best.
I think it's best to have such considerations before than when it's too late.
I wouldn't call it "cold", though, since the idea stems from love for the innocent and for my own self. And if you're an adult, act like it. I did. I've got enough problems of my own, not needing anyone to add to them and WTSHTF that reality will only become more acute.

Hi Socrates...not intending to say you are cold. It's sort of an old expression from the Sixties - stone cold...
I suppose you could call it a modifying phrase for a noun. An emphasis.  8)

I realized that, Barb, no worries.  ;)

I was just thinking to add, though, that i have underestimated peoples' self-destructive tendencies in the past and i try not to do it anymore. I can think it's sad, but a lot of folk's will to live is just too feeble and their logic fails them time and time again.
Like this guy who died of cancer; i told him that he had to make some hard choices or he'd die. Then he says he's gotta be there for his (grown) kids... "Well", i tells him, "if you die you won't be there for them ever again very soon". I mean, ya got terminal cancer, for Pete's sake; time to take care of your own business for a while. I offered him real help (and sent him this TTAC info!), but this guy just wouldn't make the hard choice.
And, guess what? Now his kids will have to do without him forever. A stupid choice according to Einstein's definition of the word, i.e. keeping on doing the same things but expecting different results [even better results, in fact!] nonetheless. He would himself have been served by some stone cold realism, i suspect...

It's better for everyone involved, since you will just end up regretting having gotten nowhere and, who knows, maybe the other woulda been better off [though most folk just go around in circles all their life anyway, no matter what you or anyone else does for them].

I like your application of the word "triage" to this problem, which we've probably all experienced at one time or another.  It seems to potentially remove all the drama and reduce it to sort of a differential diagnostics problem that the mind can rationally sift through with greater speed and efficiency than the entangled heart can do.  :)
