    How To Use Black Salve

    http://www.blacksalveinfo.com/instrbs.htm

    **Please Note**much of the info below was received from Alpha Omega Labs, a company that sold black salve under the commercial name “Cansema” which was very successful in treating skin cancers before the FDA shut them down. There are a select few quality black salves that are still on the market today, like those found at: http://www.bestonearthproducts.com

    As Alpha Omega Labs stated, the products found at risingsunhealth.com and bloodrootproducts.com are NOT quality salves and are a waste of money, like many others being marketed as true black salves. As with any ailment, it is important to seek out the advice and treatment of a qualified physician. This site is purely for educational purposes. Information found in this site is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Many of the comments found on this site have not been evaluated by the FDA, FTC, AMA or any other US government regulatory agency. Please read ALL of the following information for better understanding of the process!

    The medical definition of “cure” is the non-reoccurrence of pathology within five years after treatment. By the very definition used by orthodox medicine, black salve is empirically a proven cure for skin cancer for the majority of those who use the product according to our instructions.

    After Reading ALL of the directions below FIRST, you will want to watch the first video on this page:

    http://blacksalveinfo.com/blacksalvemov.htm

    1. PREPARATION
    First, as stated earlier, the user may want to have a biopsy or other diagnostic procedure performed to ascertain whether or not there is, in fact, skin cancer.
    Many people, on the observation that they have a “mole” or similar skin marking that is growing and getting darker, have elected to use black salves anyway. After all, black salve is selective in its action and will only “go after” neoplastic (cancerous) tissue. Healthy tissue will only redden and become mildly irritated when black salves is applied. This decision is entirely at the discretion of the user; there is no danger, toxic or otherwise, of applying black salves to healthy tissue, although doing so is simply a waste of the product.

    In addition, if you are targeting more than one growth, do one at a time and never apply to a spot larger than a USA quarter.

    2. APPLICATION
    Black salve comes in a 1/2 oz. container. The product has the consistency of a thick, moist paste. It can easily be self-applied with the fingers and should be spread over the lesion or cancerous tissue in a thin covering, almost lightly “caked.” Wash hands thoroughly before and after applying Black salve.

    The applied area will start to tingle shortly afterwards — anywhere between 5 minutes to 6 hours after the initial application. (In fact, if you feel “nothing” after three to six hours, it is most likely that nothing more will happen: Black salve has failed to come into direct contact with the cancer or there is no cancer present. If after 24 hours there is no burning, stinging or pulling sensation, you will want to remove the Black salve, follow the suggestions below in steps 2A, then  reapply, repeating this process, until the Black salve can reach and “grab” the underlying aberrant growth.) If the black salve takes hold and causes a burning, stinging or pulling sensation, then let the rest of the process play out..DO NOT WASH THE SALVE OFF, LET IT BECOME PART OF THE ESCHAR/SCAB THAT FORMS!  In some cases, there is a burning sensation with larger lesions (larger than a USA dime, so it is important to have ibuprofen, or other non-prescription pain killer, available during the process. Note: the moment the eschar falls out, usually within 7-14 days of the initial application, the pain will immediately stop! Areas larger than a square centimeter (or bigger than a U.S. “dime”) may require even stronger analgesics, which, being prescription, will require the services of a cooperative physician.

    Otherwise, observing good “pain management” may require that the cancer be “taken out in stages.” This involves applying a small amount to the edge of the growth, waiting for the sensations to die down as the eschar process begins, and then repeating this process on an adjacent area of skin until the entire area has been covered. Observe this same procedure if you are targeting more than one growth.

    Do one at a time. In this fashion, any discomfort is minimized because the entire process, which can at that point last several days, has been spread out over time. This bears repeating: never apply Black salve to a large area, unless you are under a physician’s care and advice.

    It is also a good idea to place a bandage over the area, particularly if the forming eschar is on a place on the body that might be subject to being bumped or bruised in the course of daily activity. Another thing to consider is that Black salve can stain clothing, so for practical, aesthetic, and cleanliness issues, covering the site is a good idea.

    ” . . . I applied Black salve and no eschar appeared! . . . What do I do now?”
    Black salve has to come into contact with the target cancer area in order to work. It has transdermal properties (i.e. skin penetrating ability) However, a couple of simple tricks can also speed up the process and/or reduce the number of applications required to “reach” a skin cancer that is well below the epidermis. Most people don’t need these techniques if the skin cancer is close to the skin surface. We recommend that these “tricks of the trade” only be used if an initial application does not produce results – which turns out to be a minority of cases.

    2A. “Deep Loufah Wash” – Many people use a loofah sponge to rigorously wash and prepare the skin before applying Black salve Salve. This serves to remove some of the dead cells in the top layer of the epidermis (the stratum corneum), so that Black salve has less tissue through which to travel to get to the underlying cancer.

    “Needle Points” – This technique is more effective, but more invasive. It involves taking a sterilized needle and carefully making holes in the skin – about a sixteenth to eighth inch deep, very much as an acupuncturist would – except that the needle is removed as soon as the holes usually spaced about a quarter-inch apart. Following the creation of the “skin holes,” Black Salve is then (re)applied. We recommend that this technique be used by practitioners and not end users. We also advise that practitioners prep the area by rubbing peroxide (3-6%) into the freshly “pricked” skin before Black salve is (re)applied.

    3. MANAGING THE ESCHAR
    After 24 hours remove the bandage. Using hydrogen peroxide (H2O2 – 3%, available in most drug stores) and a Q-Tip, very lightly go over the border of the lesion, removing any organic debris (i.e. puss, serous fluid, etc.) If a full pus formation is not evident or is incomplete, repeat step 2 and leave the new application on for an additional 24 hours before proceeding. Normally one application is sufficient for small tumors (the size of a pencil eraser), but no more than three applications are required for larger tumors. There are instances, however, when repeated applications of Black salve are required because of “accessibility” problems – although this can be limited using the techniques cited in the preceding section. In order to initiate the escharization process, however, and begin killing the cancer, it is vital that Black salve be able to penetrate and reach the subject site. This can take multiple (three or more) applications, though one to two applications is more common.

    After the eschar has formed, keep it well protected. Once the scab has formed, you should apply the After Care Cream and continue to use until spot is completely healed. This product will insure the scaring is minimal and keep the scab moist. Normally the bandage can be left on for a period of 10 days: however, in advanced cases there is considerable “drainage,” that is, a steady emission of pus. In the sense that Black salve kills the cancer cells and takes certain leukocytes (defending white blood corpuscles) with it in the process of eliminating the neoplasm, it is a supportive agent: that is, drainage should not be viewed as abnormal. The range of possible response is very little pus and only one bandage ever required, to a regular change of bandages required in the case of advanced melanomas. Your case will be somewhere in-between.

    4. REMOVING THE ESCHAR
    The eschar itself represents the death of the neoplasm, and this occurs shortly after application. Everything that follows is the body’s own reparative responses. From here on out, the body knows exactly what to do and wastes no time doing it. However, to us the days and weeks that follow may seem lengthy.The next stage is the removal of the eschar, or scab. This usually happens within 10-14 days after initial application, unless the case is advanced and/or cancer(s) cover a large area of the body. As with any scab, let it fall out when it is ready. DO NOT PULL IT OUT prematurely, if you remove the eschar prematurely, you further risk developing scar tissue and the cancer root will be left behind to spread.

    5. DECAVITATION & “HEALING OVER”
    After the eschar comes out, the pit or “decavitation” can look raw and unsightly. You need to wipe out the healthy pink crater tissue with peroxide, then look for any embedded white spot(s) in the healthy tissue.  If you see any such spot(s), these are cancer roots and you need to immediately cover the white spot(s) only in the crater with more black salve and let the process begin again.  If no white spot(s) is/are present, keep the crater covered and there will be no threat of secondary infection. Continue to apply the After Care Cream twice daily to the area until it is fully healed over and level with the surrounding skin. If you work in an area that is less than clean, however, you might want to have hydrogen peroxide (available in any good drug store) handy and apply it liberally to the site once a day to kill any invasive germs.
    Over a period of a few months, or in some cases two years, the entire area will be healed with only some “depigmentation” or scar tissue. The result is rarely more unsightly or unaesthetic than if surgery had been chosen instead.

    Only in rare conditions does the cancer “come back” to the area applied, unless there is underlying metastasis. To be sure that the area is clear of cancer, many users elect to initiate a second, or even third, application after they get to the “heal over” stage. We take a dim view to doing this indiscriminately because the risk of scarring is increased with each new re-application. However, with particularly aggressive forms of cancer, such as melanoma, a user may want to weigh the potential advantages of re-application, particularly if the initial cancer is located somewhere on the body that is not usually aesthetically sensitive or viewed in public (i.e. on the back, upper leg, etc.). None of this should be taken as a substitute for using some of the better cancer marker tests that are now available from qualified, licensed physicians. In other words, if you don’t need more than one application, why do it.

    In other words, once Black salve has finished its work, there are normally no residual cells from the original neoplasm. This rule finds more exceptions the larger the original cancer growth is, the deeper it is beneath the skin, the more instances of skin cancer the subject has experienced, and/or the more extensive a person’s history of skin cancer is or has been. Remember, you may need to repeat this process if the skin cancer is sufficiently extensive such that residual cancer cells have been left behind after you finish your first “cycle.” (Although, this same admonition would exist if you had your skin cancer surgically removed.) To be on the side of caution, have your health care practitioner check the site to see if there is any remaining cancer. There are excellent antigen marker tests that your physician can utilize to determine if you have a “clean bill of health.”

    http://www.ctbusters.com/home/content/basic-zapper-instructions-official

    The easy to follow instructions for using the $26 Basic Zapper and how it’ll work to kill parasites, viruses, etc….

    Basic Zapper Instructions – Official!
    Home » Blogs » andy’s blog
    Don wrote these Basic Zapper instructions for me. I’m either going to include them in each Basic Zapper purchase, or put-up a link to a .pdf file, or both. In the meantime, here’s the Basic Zapper instructions that Don was so kind to write for me:

    This basic zapper is designed to be conveniently worn against the skin–under clothing, mainly. Women often put it under a bra’s vertical strap; men often put it in a sock at the ankle. Many wear it on a shoulder while sitting or driving. Some drop it into the shirt to wear at the waist, where the shirt is tucked in. You can also wear it in an elastic tennis wrist sweatband. We advise against using an Ace Bandage because you need to be able to easily and quickly move it to another location if it starts to tingle.

    The zapper may start to tingle after a few minutes when you’re acidic and if you don’t move it, you may get a small, cauterized hole in the skin where the disc (emitter) closer to the switch is. In that case, the acid in the bloodstream has evidently collected under the other (ground) disc, creating slightly more amperage through the skin from the first disc Moving the zapper keeps that acid moving. We assume acid in the body is mainly excreted by pathogenic organisms (parasites: fungi, viruses, bacteria, worms) so when you kill all these with the zapper the acid is no longer acidic, simply stated.

    All the bad bacteria in the body are evidently killed within the first few minutes. Zappers seem to encourage the growth of good bacteria. Viruses that are free in the blood and other fluids are also killed quickly but to entirely rid the body of a virus one needs to zap at least three weeks, since viruses hide inside cells and are only exposed to the electric current from a zapper when they emerge to replicate in the blood and other fluids. Three weeks is the life cycle of any virus. Fungi may take days, weeks, or months to eradicate since they often exist in layers. Worms in the organs seem to be destroyed the first day but worms in the intestines may take up to a week of constant zapping to be rid of.

    The only place on the body where you will never get stung while acidic are the palms and soles. Many people like to hold the zapper in their palms during sleep and it’s easy to keep holding it through the night because the energy feels good. Zapping at night is a nice boost for the body’s restorative/repair functions, too. A body will not become dependent on zapping.

    I suggest that the way to get the most out of any battery-powered zapper is to wear it more or less continuously for the first month or so, then wear it each night. The health benefits of zapping will reveal themselves over a period of years, though you may find the results in the first few days to be most astonishing, assuming that you’re fairly body-aware. Otherwise, I think it’s a good idea to immediately put the zapper on when even the slightest sickness symptom begins. The sooner you’ll zap, the sooner the symptom is likely to disappear. The longer a symptom occurs, the more damage is being done to the body and damage requires some time to repair.

    This is the smallest convenient zapper on the market and it easily fits in a pocket with your change so there’s no reason not to keep it on hand.

    The more you use the zapper, the sooner you’ll likely become properly alkaline. It’s perfectly safe to wear it around the clock and it’s absolutely impossible to harm yourself with any battery-powered zapper; the current (five millionths of an amp in the body), is just too weak to do harm, though it’s strong enough to disintegrate all the parasites. Pregnant women and people with pacemakers can use any zapper safely, also newborns and extremely sick people.

    VERY IMPORTANT: Be sure to change the 9v battery by pushing the battery clip off from the side with your thumb. If you rather pull the battery clip off by grasping the wires you’re going to break one of the wires eventually. Unlike most battery-powered devices, the battery in a zapper is changed frequently so you really need to be mindful not to break a wire. A good alkaline battery lasts a couple of weeks with constant zapping.

    If zapping won’t cure your chronic sickness, please contact Dr William von Peters, who specializes in curing these new conditions. He works through the mail based on a hair sample and offers discounts to people we refer to him: uncurable.com

    ~Don Croft 12/22/9

    As you may have noticed, I got a couple of things wrong, an example is I said it should be worn a week at first, Don says three weeks. Listen to Don!

    Many blessings…

    Diatomaceous Earth – Human Use

    Diatomaceous Earth is 84% Silicon Dioxide (Silica)
    There is no life without Silica !!

    In 1939, the Nobel Prize winner for chemistry, Professor Adolf Butenant, proved that life can not exist without Silica.

    In the 2003 book “Water & Salt” Dr. Barbara Hendel states: “Silica it the most important trace mineral for human health!”

    Silica plays an important role in many body functions and has a direct relationship to mineral absorption. The average human body holds approximately seven grams of silica, a quantity far exceeding the figures for other important minerals such as iron.

    Lets look at some of the benefits of Silica:*

    Lower High Blood Pressure!

    Of the thousands of people that are using Diatomaceous Earth, most that have high blood pressure have reported that it has gone down. It has been so thrilling to talk to people all over the United States and have them tell their stories. We are not just talking a few points—we are talking about LIFE-CHANGING numbers. Doctors are amazed–customers are amazed—You will be too.

    Lower high Cholesterol!

    Just as Diatomaceous Earth has been lowering blood pressure–it has also been lowering cholesterol!!. I have not talked with one person that has high cholesterol that has not had lower numbers after taking Diatomaceous Earth. Most are reporting 40-60 points lower after only 2 weeks on DE. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it works!

    Just recieved this feedback from a user:

    “I have been on DE for 6 months now and I just had my lab work done. My triglycerides have been reduced from 495 down to 203. I have so much more energy and my hair and nails are growing so much better. My husband has had High Blood Pressure and since being on the dirt, his BP is now in the normal range. It has also helped with my varicose veins and I no longer have any pain from them..”

    Rhonda from Louisiana

    My joints feel so much better!!

    Osteoporosis is a symptom of the aging process. As calcium in our body system depletes, our bones become brittle and weak. Taking only a calcium supplement can not correct or stop this threatening and crippling disease because the body cannot assimilate and make use of the calcium without the presence of silica. Evidence suggests that, instead of affecting healing, supplemental mineral calcium, on the contrary, accelerates the leaching away of bone calcium and thus hastens the degenerative process of osteoporosis and similar diseases that affect the supportive and connective tissues in the human body.

    For osteoporosis, silica can stop the pain and even restore the bodies self repair process. Osteoporosis symptoms attack women primarily after menopause but the degenerative process starts much earlier in their younger days. More women are dying of fractures caused by osteoporosis than of cancer of the breast, cervix, and uterus combined.

    Silica is responsible for the depositing of minerals into the bones, especially calcium. It speeds up the healing of fractures and also reduces scarring at the site of a fracture. More and more research evidence shows that through a transmutation process, silica is turned into calcium when it is needed. That is why some scientists refer to silica as a precursor of calcium. Even when calcium is insufficient, the body can turn silica into calcium that the bones need.

    Natural Weight Loss!

    We have been getting hundreds of reports from all over the United States that DE is helping people lose weight. Everyone is saying that DE taken in the morning helps curb their appetite throughout the day. Just one more reason to take it everyday!!
    Nature’s Internal Cosmetic!

    In Europe and Asia Diatomaceous Earth is used extensively as a health and beauty product for hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints. They have no FDA.

    Tissue degeneration accelerates due to aging when connective tissue develops an increasing inability to retain moisture when left unassisted. Silica can help slow the degenerative process of connective tissue. With silica, vitality and life, which are often lost as the years accumulate, can be naturally maintained or even restored to your skin. Collagen, largely made up of silica, is the glue that holds us together. If our body has enough silica glucosaminoglycane, the collagen will make us look younger. Silica helps with skin problems and injuries including itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, callouses, warts, eczemas, burns, frostbite, benign skin sores, insect bites and bed sores.

    If you regularly follow a silica regimen, your skin will keep its young look. A good silica supplementation program works far better than other products for maintaining healthier and longer lasting collagen.
    Hair That Grows!

    Hair is natures greatest beauty enhancer. Hair deserves to be pampered. Hair at 90 micrograms per gram is almost as rich in silica as are healthy bones, which contain 100 micrograms per gram. Silica is a major component of hair. Using a good silica supplement should be part of your ongoing hair care program for revitalizing hair. Silica helps to prevent baldness, stimulates healthier hair growth and assures beautiful shine, luster and strength.
    Teeth and Gums!

    By hardening the enamel, silica prevents cavities and preserves teeth. Silica also prevents bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and recession that causes the loosening of teeth, which could ultimately lead to tooth loss. Silica effectively fights ulceration and the decay of bones,teeth and also lessens inflammation.

    Tough As Nails!

    Your nail plates are complex protein structures that grow four to five millimeters per month on average. With silica supplementation, fragile nails become normal within a short period of time. Silica will beautify the appearance of your nails and improve their hardness, making them shinier and less prone to breaking.

    The restorative effects of silica will be most noticeable on your hair, skin, nails and teeth. Our skin and hair require silica essentially for the same purpose as do other tissues. As we know, the supporting collagen underneath the skin enhances elasticity and beauty. Collagen owes that quality to silica, which provides a beautiful complexion that is more than skin deep.
    More Benefits!

    * Silica lowers bad cholesterol and raises good
    * Silica fades age spots
    * Silica stimulates metabolism for higher energy levels
    * Diatomaceous earth has a negative charge and bacteria has a positive charge. It is believed that diatomaceous earth sweeps bacteria out of the body by trapping it in it’s honeycomb shaped skeletal form.
    * Silica supplementation helps repair and maintain vital lung tissues and protects them from pollution. By maintaining or restoring the elasticity of lung tissues, silica reduces inflammation in bronchitis.
    * It acts as a cough decreasing agent. Silica tones the upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx, larynx) and reduces swelling because of its positive action on the lymphatic system.
    * Silica supplementation keeps menopause free of stress and helps to prevent many unwanted side-effects of menopause
    * Silica works with other antioxidants to prevent premature aging and to preserve youthfulness.
    * Silica can help prevent kidney stones and heal infections of the urinary tract. It is a natural diuretic which can increase excretion of urine by 30 percent, thus flushing the water-excreting system and restoring normal function to these vital organs.
    * The presence of sufficient silica in the intestines will reduce inflammation of the intestinal tract. It can cause disinfection in the case of stomach and intestinal mucus and ulcers. Silica can prevent or clear up diarrhea and its opposite, constipation.
    * Silica will help normalize hemorrhoidal tissues.
    * In regulating and normalizing the bowels, silica has a pleasant side effect; it can alleviate lower back pain, which often troubles the elderly.
    * Silica proves effective with female discharge, abscesses and ulcers in the genital area and cervix, as well as mastitis (especially for breast feeding mothers).
    * The intake of silica acts as a supportive treatment for inflammation of the middle ear. Because of the beneficial effectiveness on the lymphatic system, silica can be used for swelling of the lymph nodes in the throat.
    * Has anti-inflammatory disinfecting, absorbing and odor binding effects.
    * Silica can normalize circulation and regulate high blood pressure (hypertension).
    * Silica can decrease vertigo, headache, tinnitus (buzzing of the ears) and insomnia.
    * Silica can help diabetes by promoting synthesis of elastase inhibitor by the pancreas.
    * Silica can help arterial disease by strengthening the blood vessels. Studies confirm that with age, silica disappears from the aorta, the heart’s key blood vessel thus weakening its critical connective tissue and resulting in a greater cardiac risk.
    * Silica can help prevent Tuberculosis.
    * By improving the elasticity of the joints, silica helps rheumatism.
    * Silica has inhibitory effects on coronary diseases.
    * Silica can help avoiding or alleviating Alzheimers disease by preventing the body from absorbing aluminum and may flush out aluminum from the tissues. Silica can stimulate the immune system.

    Dosage:

    Daily silica needs of humans are 20-30 mg. In Years past, our bodies would get enough silica from our diet. Unfortunately, many of the foods we now eat have lost their nutritional value due to soil nutrient depletion, food processing, and chemicals. Supplemental use of Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth is essential to total body health.

    In my studies and searches of the internet, people are taking 1 or 2 heaping tablespoons of Diatomaceous Earth every day. Myself and my family take 1 heaping tablespoon per day. We mix it with grapefruit juice. Others are mixing it with water, soda pop, juice, or whatever liquid they enjoy. Some are even putting DE in protein shakes, applesauce and yogurt. Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth is Food Grade and very pure. There is no unpleasant taste. Since it will not dissolve, stirring several times while drinking will prevent settling. Some have experienced higher energy levels, so it is probably better not to take it right before sleeping. No worry about getting too much–any excess silica not needed by the body is automatically eliminated through the blood stream, kidneys and intestines.
