How I Healed My Mother’s Skin Cancer At Home

While this worked for me, it may not work for everyone. This is not intended for medical advice, anyone who reads this takes full responsibility for their actions and neither myself nor Collective Evolution will be held liable for the statements made.

For the last 3 years, my mother had been suffering with a type of skin cancer called Basal Cell Carcinoma. This is the less aggressive form of skin cancer, deemed as non-life threatening by the medical industry, in contrast to the more malignant form of skin cancer known as Melanoma.

The basal cell first began as a small red lesion on the crown of my mother’s head. It would start to bleed, then scab, then bleed again and then scab more.

The scab continued to grow and over the course of 3 years it nearly quadrupled in size. Not only did it grow wider, but it grew higher as well. Unfortunately, it took this long before my mother finally decided to go to the doctor.

She was referred to a Dermatologist by her GP. A biopsy was done and the lesion was confirmed as cancerous. At the initial consultation the Dermatologist said what every doctor says: “There is no cure for Basal Cell Carcinoma, but we can surgically remove it.”
He couldn’t guarantee that it wouldn’t return. Regardless, she scheduled an appointment to have it removed.

Not too long after the surgery, the basal cell returned – this time with a vengeance. It seemed to grow much quicker, and within two weeks after the surgery the bleeding and scabbing was back again. It was extremely frustrating to witness this, and I truly felt powerless over the matter. I made the decision to go to the Dermatologist with my mother on her next visit, and I was prepared to ask him a plethora of questions, my first question being, “What the heck is this thing???”
That is when I learned the medical term for this type of skin cancer.

Taking Matters Into Our Own Hands

Equipped with the term ‘Basal Cell Carcinoma’ and Google, I researched everything I could about it, including natural treatments. I recalled reading some articles about how sodium bicarbonate, or baking soda, has a high success rate with various types of cancers, so I looked into the topical use of baking soda on basal cells. Surprisingly, I found quite a few personal testimonies from people who had healed a basal cell completely, using just baking soda and water. Cancer cannot thrive in an alkaline environment. And that’s exactly what baking soda produces.

My mother had the basal cell removed surgically twice more before she finally let me try the baking soda treatment. And 5 weeks ago is when this treatment began.

I modified the concoction by using coconut oil instead of water, as raw organic coconut oil helps in the regeneration of skin cells. I mixed one part baking soda and one part coconut oil (a teaspoon of each) in a shot glass and stirred it up until it became a malleable paste, which is what I applied to the affected area. The results were truly astonishing.

Please keep in mind that starting at an early age my mother began to experience hair loss.  However, as a result of less hair it was much easier to apply the treatment, and the effect of the treatment was more visible.

Feb 13 – Day 1: On the first night after 2 applications during that day, the entire scab fell off on its own. The area was very tender, and the basal cell was revealed as a fleshy bulb of skin that would easily bleed when even minimal pressure was applied.

1-Feb-13

Feb 17 – Day 5: The basal cell started to shrink in size. The area around where the scab had been was all flaking, but the coconut oil was helping to clear all the dead skin away.

2-Feb-17

Feb 18 – Day 6: The basal cell had completely disappeared, and there was no more bleeding.

3-Feb-18

Feb 23 – Day 11: The skin where the basal cell had been was very tender, so we applied Polysporin at night to allow for healing and prevent infection.

4-Feb-23

Feb 26 – Day 14: The open wound where the basal cell had been was starting to get smaller.

5-Feb-26

March 2 – Day 18: The affected area began patching itself up, closing up the wound. The area was still very tender and sore, so we stopped using the baking soda and coconut oil and applied Polysporin instead.

6-Mar-2

Mar 6 – Day 22: The wound had closed up entirely. We thoroughly cleaned the area and gently picked away all the left over dead skin.

7-Mar-6

March 6 – present: The skin surface has remained clear of the basal cell. For now I am still continuing to apply the baking soda and coconut oil EVERYDAY, along with apple cider vinegar soaked cotton pads that I place over the area to reach the basal cell root. My mother will be scheduling regular follow ups with her doctor, as well as another biopsy.

8-Mar-22

The Method I Used

  • Raw organic coconut oil (the brand I used was Artisana)
  • Aluminum-free baking soda (I purchased it at a holistic health food store)
  • A shot glass, to effectively stir the mixture within
  • Something to stir the mixture with, I used the narrow handle of a small metal spoon.
  • Polysporin Triple 3 Antibiotics, or any other antibiotic ointment to apply at night

I stirred 1 part baking soda and 1 part coconut oil in a shot glass until it became a malleable paste that was easy to apply. It helped to apply a bit of warmth to melt the coconut oil faster – I let the shot glass run under hot water for a bit.

Using the handle of the spoon that I stirred with, I applied the mixture to the affected area. I DID NOT RUB IT IN. Instead I gently slathered the area with the paste and let it remain there for as long as possible. Then I applied a shower cap to keep the treatment in place.

I aimed for 3 applications a day for the first week, and 2 for the second week moving forward, and made sure to properly clean the affected area before each application.

A basal cell has roots that reach much deeper into the skin than it appears, it is not just on the surface, therefor I learned that it is important to continue using the treatment much longer, even when the skin has fully patched up.

What We All Learned From This Experience

Looking back at the start of this whole experience, I realize that I was just as skeptical as most people with regards to a successful treatment that costs only a few dollars, not to mention one that is sitting in my kitchen pantry! I completely understand why a simple solution like baking soda and coconut oil would be cast aside in favor of a more ‘sophisticated’ treatment.

While I am by no means completely against mainstream or allopathic medicine, it is my opinion that we have been heavily conditioned by the medical industry to believe that we have absolutely no power over our own physical and mental health, and that the solutions and cures to our ailments lie far beyond our reach; that only a large sum of money can buy a cure.
I can’t stress enough that this is simply not true.

Throughout the progress of my mother’s healing, my whole family had experienced first hand how effective an alternative treatment can be. Not only is it effective – it is affordable, safe, and free of side-effects. Needless to say, my family’s opinion on mainstream/allopathic medicine has shifted significantly.

My hope is that people who are going through a similar experience can come to understand the power is in their hands to heal themselves. No one is going to spoon-feed us the truth about how we can heal using simple and affordable methods – especially not the medical industry. We must do our own research and reclaim our healing power.

UPDATE July 5, 2014

Hi everyone! I just wanted to update you all on what has been happening with my mother and the basal cell. As my article states and the pictures show, the entire skin surface did clear up by the beginning of March.

Sometime in April I accompanied my mother on a visit to her doctor in order to relay the details of this whole experience to her, and I brought pictures which documented the process. The doctor was very impressed at the response of the basal cell to the coconut oil and baking soda. But to be safe she referred my mother to a dermatologist (another one this time, who is apparently very good) so that a more expertise assessment can be made and a biopsy can be done. This appointment is scheduled for mid July.

We stopped using the treatment in April – partly because we got extremely busy planning for a big trip in May, and partly because we were curious to see what would happen if we just left the affected area alone, without any treatment. The area stayed clear until the first week of June.

At the beginning of June we noticed the small lesion returning, in its usual place. We were on vacation at the time and waited until we returned to resume treatment. Toward the end of June we started applying the baking soda and coconut oil, with a cotton pad soaked in organic apple cider vinegar placed on top. Within only a day the skin started to clear up again. The scabbing fell away on the first day and within 2 days the area had patched itself up. We are continuing to use the treatment.

It is evident that the treatment is working on a surface level. The cancer seems to respond by shrinking away and clearing up. But basal cells have roots under the surface of the skin. We are trying to ascertain at this point whether the treatment will eventually eradicate the root of the basal cell if we keep using it, even when the skin surface is completely clear.

Another thing I must note, which I’m trying to get my mother to understand, is that the process of healing cancer is holistic, meaning it is not just a silver bullet solution that heals it (in this case a topical application). It is an amalgamation of different healing modalities which work to keep the body, mind and spirit in a vibration which cancer can’t thrive in. This includes a healthy diet and lifestyle, the elimination of toxins from the body, a positive mindset, and the integration of other healing practices such as reiki, acupuncture and yoga/meditation.

I have been hearing from other people’s personal experience that taking certain vitamins and supplements was very helpful in combating their skin cancer, in conjunction with a topical application. It makes sense, since proper nutrition allows the body to heal itself. We are going to look into this for my mother.

I will once again make an update to this article upon receiving further information and results.
Thank you to everyone for your contribution and sharing your experiences, it’s nice to get a broad spectrum of perspectives on the matter.

Blessings, namaste and much love,
Kyneret

Powerful Reasons to Eliminate Aluminum From Your Life

800x633xfoil76867.jpg.pagespeed.ic.SKchhL80hS

Did you know that Aluminum is the most widely distributed metal on the planet? In fact aluminum is in a lot of day to day products such as drinking water, cookware, foil, baking soda, cake mixes, non-dairy creamers, vanilla powders, aspirin, flour and even your deodorant. Food Additives such asE173, E520, E521, E523 E541, E545, E554, E555 E556 and E559 contain aluminum compounds.

One would think that if so many products contain aluminum, it should be fine for our health. After all, the FDA is looking out for us. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Unlike iron and other vitamins and minerals, our body does not need aluminum. Thus, it is not able to process it correctly. So what happens to it? It gets stored in our body and accumulates with time in our kidney, brain, lungs, liver and thyroid which potentially does detrimental damage to our health.

Powerful Reasons to Eliminate Aluminum From Your Life

  • Aluminum damages your central nervous system. Aluminum exposure in children has been linked to autism. Children may be exposed to high levels of aluminum from drinking water. Brain and bone disease have been seen in children with kidney disease. Bone disease has also been observed in children taking some medicines containing aluminum. In adults, aluminum exposure can lead to age-related neurological deficits resembling Alzheimer’s and the Guamanian variant, ALS–PDC. (source)
  • Aluminum can damage your brain. Research has demonstrated that aluminum can produce toxic, oxidative stress in the brain. Your brain can store a lot of aluminum which can result in MS, chronic fatigue syndromes, epilepsy, ADD, Alzheimer’s, Guilliane-Barre’ syndrome (a common post vaccination injury) and other neurological disorders.
  • Aluminum robs the body of magnesium, calcium and iron. ”Trace aluminum levels cross the blood-brain barrier and progressively accumulate in large pyramidal neurons of the hippocampus, cortex, and other brain regions vulnerable in Alzheimer’s disease. More aluminum enters the brain than leaves, resulting in a net increase in intraneuronal aluminum with advancing age. Aluminum is responsible for two main types of toxic damage in cells. As a pro-oxidant, aluminum causes oxidative damage both on its own and in synergy with iron. Aluminum also competes with, and substitutes for, essential metals-primarily Mg2+, iron and Ca2+ ions-in or on proteins and their co-factors.” (source)
  • Aluminum accumulates in bone tissue, which results in weakened bones. (source) It is also believed to be a cause of osteoporosis.
  • Aluminum causes oxidative stress on cells throughout the body, causing damage to DNA and aging. (source)

Reduce Your Aluminum Exposure

Even though aluminum is a heavy metal like lead, it can be toxic in excessive amounts. Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals on earth and it is really hard to completely avoid it. However, you can take certain steps to avoid it such as using aluminum free cookware, avoid hygiene products with aluminum hydroxide, avoid processed foods, etc

Foods that remove heavy metals naturally:

Onions, Blue Green Algae, Garlic, Cilantro, Burdock, Bentonite (high grade), Carrot Juice and Green Tea. (Chlorella is also an excellent food that helps remove metals; it helps the body to rebuild nerve tissues).

Because there are organizations that continue to profit from disease.  It is that simple.

Do you know how many people die while this secret is kept simply in the name of profit?

Citrus fruit can cure cancer. Recent studies have shown that consuming citrus fruits, specifically lemons have prevented and in some cases cured cancer.  And by adding baking soda you will normalize the pH of the body which does not allow the cancer to continue to spread.

Disinfect Your Toothbrush Naturally

Disinfect

Streptococci, staphylococci and treponema denticola – these are just a few names of the different bacteria that exist in the average mouth every day. It is estimated that most people’s mouths have literally millions of these organisms thriving just on the surfaces of the teeth. Having an abundance of bacteria is a contributor to tooth decay and gum disease, so keeping an environment less friendly to the harmful bacteria is one way to promote oral health.

There are many options out there to disinfect your toothbrush ranging from special UV lamps to using bleach, dishwashing soap and your dishwasher! Thankfully, keeping your toothbrush clean and infection-free does not need to be so complicated. In fact, you most likely have the ingredients sitting in your cabinet right now.

Disinfect the Simple and Natural Way

Here are the 3 things that you will need:

  • water
  • vinegar
  • baking soda

Directions:

Pour 1/2 cup or 120 ml of water into a glass. Next add 2 tablespoons or 30 ml of white vinegar and 2 tsp or 10 mg of baking soda and mix well. Place your toothbrush (es) into the glass and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse well.

Vinegar and baking soda are both effective disinfectants and, in addition to disinfecting your toothbrushes, can be used throughout your home as an alternative to toxic commercial household cleaners.

It is important to discard your toothbrush every few months or once they show some wear. They become less efficient at cleaning teeth and should be replaced.
