a Forum POST on Black Salve

It's been a LONG time since I've posted and I apologize. I used a black salve cream for 3 skin cancers (over a period of 3 years) basal cell and squamous cell. Not ONE has come back. Sadly when I had surgery TWICE before, the cancer returned within a year.
This is the product that the pharmaceuticals DO NOT want you to know about...I SWEAR!!! They have raided almost all companies who sell it, and try to shut them down because it WORKS!
After reading a book on how cancer treatments are being hushed and witheld from us, my eyes were opened. I had no idea how the pharmaceuticals work with the FDA to HIDE possible cancer cures from the public. Why? GREED?
You will NEVER find the black salve approved by the FDA. Why? The herbs are so cheap to make and copy, that the competition would be way too much for the money hungry( Big Pharma) and could put many out of business, cutting in to the pockets of the filthy rich!
Did you know that it costs around 500 MILLION to get a product approved by the FDA, and the studies are done by those they choose. So how do these small companies stand a chance?
I read that the US has around a 3% cancer cure rate overall. That means that our current treatments will give people a 97% death sentence ie, chemotherapy overall.
There are so many natural/alternative treatments that have helped thousands with cancer. For example, the Gerson therapy is being raved about by everyone lately and thousands who are being given 6 months to live are cancer free!
Anyway, this black salve stuff is awesome for skin cancer and for checking suspicious lesions, moles, etc. I know someone who has been using black salve for over 20 years and not ONE cancer has returned. I have tried several brands but only a couple that have worked and that I trust. The black salve attacks abnormal cells and leaves healthy cells alone for just about everyone. I am sure there are exceptions. I put it on all suspicious lesions and so far only 3 on my face that were diagnosed as basal cell, and one possible squamous cell that reacted. The other moles that I have did not react at all. When you put it on, it will burn if there are unhealthy cells ie cancer. And if there are not any, you will just get a mild redness or nothing at all will happen at all.
After a few days, it will form a scab and within about 15 days my cancer came out. I then had a clean wound that began to heal. No infection has ever been reported with it that I know of, and I emailed over 30 people who have used black salve( who left their emails on forums). NOT one had one thing negative to say. I have heard it has around a 97.9- 98% cure rate.
It does burn a bit, but I REFUSE to let surgeons slash my face anymore... ESPECIALLY when it did NO good but give me a higher risk for spreading the cancer.
Many are saying now that each time you get a biopsy, you may be risking the spreading of cells.
If you guys want to get a video on how people have removed cancerous breast tumors and skin cancers with this stuff, go to and look at the tumorx dvd's. You will not believe your eyes! I didn't use the tumorx. I used the cansema, but they both have similar ingredients.
I know people who have put this stuff on herpes and one even on genital warts...OUCH... and they swear by it. They said this was the only thing that made the herpes not come back. I have not tried it as I don't have herpes, thank goodness, but thought it was interesting that it worked for them. I asked the manufacturers who sell black salve and they said they can not recommend it for herpes or genital warts. In fact, if one thinks they have cancer they should get checked by their doctor first to verify it is cancer. And then follow up once the cancer falls out to make sure it's all gone. Melanoma is nothing to mess around with. This will work on Melanoma as well, from several I have spoken to. I know people who have melanoma who had surgery first and then used the salve. Guess what?? The salve found areas that the surgeon missed. But if you use the salve first, you should then follow up with your doctor to make sure it's all gone. Melanoma can kill you within 5 years diagnosis, so don't wait. You want that monster out of your body!
Anyway, amazing product and I am glad I tried it.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States.
Half of all men and one-third of all women in the US will develop cancer during their lifetimes. Today, millions of people are living with cancer or have had cancer. The risk of developing most types of cancer can be reduced by changes in a person's lifestyle, for example, by quitting smoking and eating a better diet. The sooner a cancer is found and treatment begins, the better are the chances for living for many years. - American Cancer Society
Although the American Cancer Society and many other orthodox medically endorsed organizations state that prevention of cancer is dependent on diet and lifestyle choices, they do nothing to help people take the next step toward such practices! Instead, We The People, are generally left with the following failed methods:
This is from a young man's melanoma blog I found on the web. I am just sharing a short bit of it to show you a slight glimpse into the process and costs of a traditional medical protocol as well as their outcome. Very well documented by this young man. If you don't have time to read all of it, the outcome is at the very bottom.
One of my main purposes in blogging this is to alarm people into getting suspicious moles checked out by a doctor immediately. If you are even remotely concerned about anything on your skin, please make an appointment with a doctor today. You definitely won't regret it. And remember that there is still a very good chance that I will recover from this. Melanoma is bad news, but it is not a death sentence. (Update: my case is currently in a partial remission.) (Update: no, actually it's not.) I have a strong feeling that this will be a monumental hassle but that I'll make it through in the end. Either way, though, I want to make as much noise about the experience as possible so that others can learn from my mistakes. I'll start biochemotherapy on 11/18/04, one month and three days after my initial doctor visit. This has been a really rough month, but I think I've cleared a number of major hurdles. Biochemotherapy consists of a continuous flow of interleukin-2, a daily injection of vinblastine, a daily IV of cisplatin, a single injection of alpha interferon, and a single IV of dacarbazine. The process takes five days in the hospital, with a 16-day recovery period at home. The general side effects are basically flu-like. I'm thinking that as long as we're going to conduct biological and chemical warfare in my bloodstream, we might as well drop a few nukes for good measure. At least it would get rid of the tumors, and I bet they wouldn't come back.
(12/17/04) I got a payment statement from my insurance (Blue Cross) yesterday. Apparently a round of chemotherapy goes for $40,000. Absolutely crazy. Thankfully, insurance is covering everything. My situation would be much different if I didn't have health coverage. So, all the places that bug me: the inflamed lymph node in my neck, the above-mentioned crater in my back, the incision in my left armpit from the lymph node biopsy, the place where the IV port reaches my jugular vein (the tube is visible under the skin), the blob that is the IV port, and the incision from where it was inserted. A few more incisions and I'll look like a Reaver from Firefly. I have scans on the 28th. These will provide our first indication of whether chemotherapy is working. I'm more than a little nervous about them. Given that I have a PET, MRI, and CT scan on the same day, I'll probably be glowing with radioactive tracer for a while. That could be interesting. As usual, I'll try to obtain the radiology reports and post them here. Hopefully I can snag another full color PET scan image. Scans are painless, except for the tracer injections and the really bad taste of the CT scan contrast dye. Nonetheless it'll be a really long day. I bet my insurance company hates this particular treatment program. That's easily $7000 of scans in one go. Let me offer my condensed summary of cancer. Maybe they could print it on a little card and distribute it in lieu of the sappy brochures:
Congratulations, you have cancer! Your life is about to turn upside down. It causes a lot of stress, and many patients crash and burn horribly. Chemotherapy can save your life, but in the process it'll make you feel like you've been run over by a Hummer. Alternately, your doctors may choose to irradiate you in one of several ways, which is not altogether unlike being shoved into a microwave oven on "high" for a few minutes. Your medications probably won't make you feel better, so do yourself a favor and buy some weed. Get used to needles; you're going to be poked with a lot of them. Be strong, and you might live. Good luck!
You see, that would have actually been a *useful* description when I was first getting started.
(1/16/05)Be it decreed: I shall have no more Reglan or Benadryl. Nausea, I can deal with; nearly suicidal depression and restlessness, absolutely not.
(1/19/05) I'm going in for round four tomorrow. This could possibly be the last round. I suspect I'll end up with six rounds, but it would be nice if this took care of everything. (**editors note, do the math at $40k a round, not including all the additional cost of scans!) I'm in the process of filing for disability coverage. I found out that my health care benefits expire at the end of March, so I'll probably have to get an extension under COBRA. That will be expensive, but much less expensive than paying everything out of pocket.
(2/10/05) The last two rounds of chemo didn't have much of an effect on the tumors, but they do appear to be stable (i.e., not growing or spreading). Since chemo seems to be having a diminishing effect, I'm not going to do any more rounds. Instead, I'm moving on to the "maintenance" program, which should hopefully keep the tumors stable and possibly shrink them over time. Maintenance is similar to chemo, but without the really evil drugs. Each round is a two night hospital stay. Most people recover very quickly (a day at most). I'll do one round a month for the first six months, and then one round every six months indefinitely (or at least until they come up with some miracle cure for melanoma). The downside is that the tumors are still there. There is a small tumor in my liver, and there are scattered nodules in my lungs. I still have two inflamed lymph nodes. None of the tumors are large enough to pose a threat, as long as they don't grow.
(2/14/05) Woohoo! Money, money, money! I just got my SDI (state disability insurance) checks in the mail. Activision stopped paying me as of January 1st, and I've been coasting since then. I was a little late in sending off the paperwork, so the state's turnaround time actually wasn't bad at all. California has a mandatory disability insurance program, funded by payroll deductions (so if you do have to use it, you're definitely entitled to it). It pays a percentage of your salary (60% I think) for up to a year if you become disabled. You just have to fill out a form and have your doctor provide an explanation. It was less of a hassle than I expected. One caveat is that SDI doesn't deduct taxes from its checks. I'll have to remember that when I fill out my tax return; I may end up owing additional taxes. I plan to return to work on the 16th (this Wednesday).
(3/10/05) I had a routine appointment with Dr. XXXXXXX yesterday. No news, but I wasn't expecting any. As usual, everyone was upbeat and encouraging. I'm still mystified by the fact that they have never suggested ways to improve my diet or lifestyle for fighting cancer. It is obvious that certain foods have an effect on the immune system, and that my long term survival depends on maintaining a strong immune system. Given that my immune system is basically at an equilibrium with the cancer, even small improvements could be very helpful. Some facts I came across: The insulin released when you consume sugar (especially refined white sugar) suppresses the immune system. Some claim that the effect is rather strong. Cannibinoids (marijuana, Marinol) are immunosuppressants. Partially hydrogenated oils (evil for many reasons, but oh so common) suppress the creation of NK cells (natural killers, a type of white blood cell). Tumors consume large amounts of glucose, at a rate much faster than normal cells. Reducing the glucose in your diet can slow down tumor growth. Not all sugars are the same in this regard. So I've stopped drinking soda. It's a good riddance anyway; I'd be healthier for it even if I didn't have cancer.
(4/27/05) I had scans yesterday. They didn't go well. There was overall disease progression. Two or three new lymph nodes are involved, the main lung tumor has grown, and there's a subcutaneous tumor on my left arm. It may have spread to my left scapula. But most importantly, there is a metastasis in my brain. I'm going to have that removed with a gamma knife at USC this weekend. The procedure is fairly safe and does not require any incisions. Dr. XXXXXXXX said this is a fairly common situation and doesn't seem overly concerned about it, other than the need to get it out of there immediately. Interleukin-2 is not working. I'm moving to a different treatment. We are considering several options. One possibility is a form of Taxol, a common breast cancer chemotherapy. Dr. XXXXXXXX said I should also check to see what MD Anderson, a respected cancer center in Texas, has to offer. There is still potential for keeping this under control. I'm not sure what the long-term prospects are, but there is absolutely no point in worrying about that. Stress just weakens the immune system.
(5/5/05) The brain tumor is now an ex-tumor. I had gamma knife radiosurgery at USC. It went very well. I arrived at 6 AM and was on the way home before noon. My forehead is sore from the titanium head frame (held in place by pointed bolts), but I'd rather deal with that than have the radiation miss the intended target. The tumor was small, and we expect the gamma knife to have completely obliterated it without significant collateral damage to the surrounding area. It should dissolve over the next few months. I'll have another MRI scan in six weeks.
(5/7/05) I had some strange visual artifacts yesterday. Occasionally images would pop out at me, triggered by whatever I was looking at. It felt as though the pattern recognition part of my brain was overstimulated. My actual field of view was not distorted at all, though. I wouldn't call them hallucinations.
(5/12/05) My shoulder has continued to be annoying. I'm out of Vicodin. I'm going to see about getting more. It's no real surprise that it's hurting, and I don't think it's an immediately dangerous problem, but it's still very bothersome. Sandy suggested that I switch to OxyContin (oxycodone) rather than taking Vicodin for an extended period of time, so I picked up a prescription for it today. It's a very potent narcotic analgesic much like Vicodin, but given in a slow-release tablet that lasts twelve hours. It should be about as effective as Vicodin once it kicks in. The advantage is that it provides continuous pain relief without the ups and downs associated with short-acting drugs like Vicodin. I'm starting with a relatively low dose of OxyContin. We'll increase it if necessary. OxyContin is one of the most widely abused prescription drugs. People sometimes defeat the time release mechanism by crushing the tablets, resulting in a sudden rush of oxycodone. Needless to say, that's a bad idea. I start a clinical trial of a Mederex monoclonal antibody next Thursday, June 3rd. We have high hopes for this. I know a lot of people have been praying for me, which I very much appreciate. This would be a very good time to continue doing so!
(6/5/05) I had the first round of the monoclonal antibody clinical trial on Thursday. It's hard to know if I'm feeling any side effects from it; I've been rather lethargic for the past few days, but that's also caused by OxyContin. The treatment itself was very easy; four subcutaneous shots in my legs and one 90 minute IV. I dozed off for most of it. Today I picked up some lidocaine spray to deal with an annoying subcutaneous tumor that's been hurting lately. It was tempting to instead pick up some hydrochloric acid spray and make the tumor cease to exist, but I don't think that would help the pain much.
(7/10/05) So many herbal and dietary supplements, so hard to know which ones are worth anything. I'm currently taking several: Bromelain, a pineapple stem extract that has been shown to have significant anticancerous properties, Artemisinin, a wormwood extract that reacts with iron, which is found in greater concentrations in cancerous cells, and Amygdalin, otherwise known as Vitamin B17, which the FDA raised quite a stink about a few years ago and made very hard to obtain. I also occasionally take Greens+ at the strong suggestion of a friend, but the pills are large and annoying, so I'm lazy about it. At a reader's suggestion, I'm thinking of adding Graviola to the list. These may be worthless, or they may help. I suspect they'll help a little. They are far less toxic than any of the other drugs I've taken throughout this treatment, and as such there is really no reason not to try them. I have to be careful with Amygdalin and Artemisinin, which can be harmful in high doses, but then again so can anything.
(8/11/05) Long overdue for an update. I had the final Medarex clinical trial treatment last Wednesday. It went about as expected (this was the fourth one, so it's kind of a routine). My blood hemoglobin had dropped so low that I received a two unit blood transfusion on Friday. I think this gave me a little more energy (at least it got rid of any anemia I may have had), but I'm still feeling very tired. Generally good, just tired. I go in for scans next week, but I don't think the results will be interesting. There may be some new tumors and some of them may be swollen. We can tell that much just from the outside. We are still highly encouraged by the swelling and puffiness surrounding many of my subcutaneous tumors. Where to from here? Who knows. Perhaps we'll wait a while and see how the swelling progresses. Ideally, of course, the cancer would eat itself alive and never come back. Nothing wrong with wishful thinking.

It's time to take health care decisionsinto our own, EDUCATED, hands!!!!!!
The following letter was written some time ago from a formulator of black salve products:
Our products are made from the best wild crafted plants and minerals that can be found anywhere on earth. You will find that the total ingredients needed to make our full line of products required the collecting of plant material from every warm climate continent on earth. We believe, that in order to have the best health products on this earth you have to go to the 4 corners of the earth and collectthem. This is exactly what we have done! The choosing of which plants and minerals to use in our formulas focused mainly around time proven plants that have survived with empirical evidence and are known as the best treatments or cures in the day's of old and still preferred in today's new natural salves and creams.
As world expeditions expanded and communication technology's linked the world together, other continents cultural treatments and cures became known to new parts of the world.
The secret to making all of our products is this; we use combinations of totally different plants from around the world and each single plant on there own have been undeniably successful in treating or curing the same single body medical condition. A great example of combining the ELITE KINGS of the plant world into a single product is our black salves for skin moles, skin tags, warts, and skin cancers. All of these salves have varying degrees of the same plants and minerals only because there are no other known plants, in our opinion, that can out perform these wonderful God given plants.
As with any product, the product is only as good as it's individual parts. Let's look at our formulas chosen components with a short plant by plant profile and why we chose them.
Bloodroot: chosen because it is fast acting, strong and powerful and can be used on a wide array of skin problems. It is a non-discriminating killer of abnormal cell clusters of almost any kind of abnormality. If a small opening or space in the skin exists like in the abnormal tissue growth cell spacing found in skin cancers,the bloodroot will enter that open area and will kill all foreign or abnormal tissue.
Burdock Root: When applied externally as a poultice, the leaves are highly resolvent for tumors and gouty swellings, and relieve bruises and inflamed surfaces generally. The bruised leaves have been applied by the peasantry in many countries as cataplasms to the feet and as a remedy for hysterical disorders. From the seeds, both a medicinal tincture and a fluid extract are prepared, of benefit in chronic skin diseases. Americans use the seeds only, considering them more efficacious and prompt in their action than the other parts of the plant. They are relaxant and demulcent, with a limited amount of tonic property. Their influence upon the skin is due largely to their being of such an oily nature: they affect both the sebaceous and sudoriferous glands, and probably owing to their oily nature restore that smoothness to the skin which is a sign of normal healthy action.
Graviola: All parts of the Graviola tree are used in natural medicine in the tropics including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds. Different properties and uses are attributed to the different parts of the tree. Generally the fruit and fruit juice is taken for worms and parasites, to cool fevers, to increase mother's milk after childbirth (lactagogue), and as an astringent for diarrhea and dysentery. The crushed seeds are used as a vermifuge and anthelmintic against internal and external parasites and worms. The bark, leaves and roots are considered sedative, antispasmodic, hypotensive and nervine and a tea is made for various disorders for those purposes. Graviola has a long rich history of use in herbal medicine as well as a long recorded indigenous use. In the Peruvian Andes, a leaf tea is used for catarrh and the crushed seed is used to kill parasites In the Peruvian Amazon the bark roots and leaves are used for diabetes and as a sedative and antispasmodic. Indigenous tribes in Guyana use a leaf and/or bark tea of Graviola as a sedative and heart tonic. In the Brazilian Amazon, a leaf tea is used for liver problems and the oil of the leaves and unripe fruit is mixed with olive oil and used externally for neuralgia, rheumatism and arthritis pain. In Jamaica, Haiti and the West Indies, the fruit and/or fruit juice is used for fevers, parasites, as a lactagogue, and diarrhea; and the bark or leaves are used as an antispasmodic, sedative, and nervine for heart conditions, coughs, grippe, difficult childbirth, asthma, asthenia, hypertension and parasites
Chaparral: Old folk lore claim that chaparral drowns the cancer by holding the cancer under it's oil and takes "Mr. cancer's" air away until he is dead. This is because fresh chaparral oil will enter the skin and stay visible like a glue but lays even or flat with the skin. The long staying power of this fight to the end ninja warrior plant is one of my favorite and is used in my cold sore creams as well. Chaparral is the perfect working base to use as the binder for all of these cancer killers in our formulas. The major lignan in chaparral, known as nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) is a potent antioxidant and was thought by some scientists to be a potential cancer treatment. In a rat study, NDGA and a leaf extract of a South American subspecies of chaparral were found to exert an antitumor effect. Other reported effects for chaparral include anti-inflammatory properties as well as antimicrobial actions in test tubes. These actions have note been established in human clinical trials.
Let's take a look at our strongest Black Salve formula, for skin cancer. Our company's master blenders of these black salves uses no fillers of any kind. The goal is to blend each formula in such a way that only the pure cancer killing product comes in contact with every possible skin cancer surface area.
Our formulation requires that the salve components be high speed blended, focusing on centrifuging the individual pieces of plant matter into the smallest possible sizes. We next age the salve in glass vials which are air tight. The sun aging of the salves for 30 days heats and cools the plant matter in the glass vials daily, forcing the salve to once again reduce the size of the plant material by naturally shrinking and then swelling, while under pressure. This cures the salve into the best salve that can be made by any one. The final preparation is to take the sun cured salve and high speed blend it once again into the final finished salve product.
To see the salve in it's final stage, you can clearly understand the quality of the preparation in the smooth creamy texture of the black salve. You can be assured that our finest blended salves give you a higher likely hood that the total plant mixture of products are more evenly spaced on the surface of the skin cancer when compared with similar products. `A supreme quality salve is not created by superior blending alone. The ingredients chosen determine the capability of the salve. The formulating of our skin cancer black salves is based on the reasoning that multiple plants working together will over whelm the skin cancers cells ability to live or continue to grow.
The combined oils in our product from each plant is now simultaneously attacking the cancer cells. The combining of the worlds best cancer killing plants and minerals into a single product, produces a cocktail of death to the skin cancer cell cluster and is more than 90% successful in completely removing the skin cancer from the body!
A very big thing to remember here is that under the skin, no person of any practice of medical skills is, capable of visually determining the good healthy tissue from the cancer cell clusters. In the removal and radiation cancer treatments, a few things are certain:
First fact, more healthy tissue around the suspected cancer area will be lost to knife removal than you will have with cancer killing plants. What happens if they do not cut all of the cancer cells out of the body and the dreaded chemo misses a single cell?
The truthful answer; that cancer cell that was not killed, will proceed with it's normal genetic code and keep growing. The single cancer cell may go dormant for a while or it could immediately begin to grow at it's maximum growth speed. The chemo you just used tried to kill the good components of the immune system cells too. Killing off of the good immune system cells will allow the superior in physical strength cancer cells that survived, to simply run rampant in the now undefended body.
The root of a skin cancer cell cluster is what is most commonly thought to be the cause of the recurrence of the cancer and only your body's immune system will determine when the cancer root will return! On large skin cancers when the outer surfaces of the cancer rips or pulls apart from the smaller surface part or the tail of the cancer, it will leave a brain looking tissue in the bottom of the cancer surface. When you see this brain looking tissue you must reapply to the strange looking tissue in the open cancer scar hole, one more coating of the black salve. This will kill the remaining cancer in most cases but in some cases you may have to keep going deeper with the salve when you still see the strange looking tissue in the bottom of the cancers hole.
On small skin cancers usually one to three treatments will fully remove the skin cancer and this accounts for around 90% of the skin cancers that we are aware of.
The second facts about chemo is, you lose your sense of smell and taste, some times for life. This occurs due to the destruction of zinc stores in the body from the chemo.
The third fact is, in a child, chemo will stop the bone growth in the child, affecting the child's physical growth.
Even as a master blender and a certified horticulturist I still can understand why a person who is new to the study of holistic medicine would doubt that plants can heal the body like nothing made by man can.
I understand because this is what I thought myself at first, I felt it just could not be true or every one would know of these plants! When I first heard of old cancer killing recipes made from plants and minerals, I felt it could not be true. For if it was so, our government would force the whole nation to take these plants, like I remembered standing in line to be vaccinated as a child.
Because of a loved one in my family that had developed skin cancer, I studied old formulas where ever I could find them and made a formula that worked and has worked on every person that I have seen it applied to. Our products were all made the best way possible, because they first were all needed and used by someone that I loved in my family. There is not one thing I would change in making the product you will receive than the product that any of my family would receive!
The products are made the best way we know how. If it can be made better, please contact and teach us something old that you know and let us make it new again for this and future generations. Be assured that our products are the best when compared to any holistic manufactures product in the world. We could be copied but never out performed.

Detecting Skin Cancers
Quite often people will use the black salve and get a great result, and out of concern for other possible skin cancers, they will smear the salve in large areas of the body to see if they have an immune response. This is not advisable, as the salve should only be used on 1-2 inch squares of the skin because of its potency. We have had reports from patients who have tried a new body wash that is very effective in detecting spots where cancers and other skin abnormalities are hiding in the skin.
The product is called the "Total Body Wash" from Best On Earth Products the makers of the black salve we use, and it is spread all over the skin during the normal bathing process. There is also a shampoo which does the same thing for the scalp. From what people are saying, sometime after using the wash, little black spots and sometimes red patches will develop on the surface of the skin after using the body wash. This is a way to do what is called "spot hunting".
When you see a spot arise after using the wash for a few weeks, then you can put some black salve directly on that spot and see what happens. Typically you will see the same eschar response on such spots. This really helps to get specific with identifying where another abnormal tissue may be so you can eliminate it. The Total Body Wash has also been reported to help tremendously with eczema, psoriasis, and acne. It is formulated with the same herbs as the salves only with less potency and some light modifications to help the skin itself. Happy spot hunting, and if you use any black salve products please let us know your experience with them so we may add to our testimonials so that other seekers of black salves may be encouraged!

I felt it was important to share with you all my experience with a black salve body wash. The following text is from a couple of emails I wrote to a person who had questions about the body wash.
I am hearing from many people that this Total Care Body Wash shows where other skin abnormalities/cancers are, as well as it helps with scars, especially from burns.
I started using it about 6 months ago and actually had a spot that looked like a plantar wart come to the surface of my skin on my chest, just under my right clavicle. It was about the size and shape of an eraser head of a pencil. This was about 3-4 months ago. After a week it dried up and disappeared. I was amazed. There is no mark left at all.
I will tell you a little more about the body wash, just recently, I had a flat mole actually come to the surface that was never there before. It was on my back left lat, and it was a dark pink color. I started really concentrating the wash on that spot for the last week and now it is totally drying up. I really think this is the most amazing formulation ever produced.
I have often found that if you are working on a specific mole or wart, that it is helpful to "rough it up" so to speak. You don't have to cut into it, but take a brand new, clean emery board and very lightly pull it across the spot, just enough so that it would cause tiny little spots of the skin in the area to be scraped, almost microscopic though, you don't need to make it bleed. .
Remember, if you don't have any big ones, I would start by using the body wash for a few months to see what develops. If a spot develops that does not disappear with in 30-90 days you will want to apply black salve to it. Bloodroot will work for non-cancerous moles, warts, and skin tags, but black salve (which has less bloodroot in it) will get them all and I find there is a little less scarring with the black salve then the bloodroot.
I am telling people about the body wash for finding spots, which originally I was telling them to then put some salve on, but now I am finding it is less invasive to continue with the body wash for several months. This is why I find the body wash long term to be better if you are concerned about scarring. But, if you find after using the body wash daily for a couple of months, a spot that comes to the surface which is large or does not go away, you may want to apply black salve to it, as it is most likely a stronger cancer that does not want to be pulled through the entire body but would rather be easier to exit through the surface of the skin.
The body wash can be put on as a thin layer and left for up to 15 minutes before rinsing off, but I have usually used it for 5 minutes before rinsing off in the shower. Some eczema and psoriasis patients have reported leaving it on all day and getting good results when they also get all dairy and white flour/sugar out of their diets. It can be left on long term with no adverse effects. The source for the body wash that myself and friends and family use can be found at Best On Earth Products

Bloodroot for Sale

Bloodroot information and resources from
Their main product line focuses on cancer. Two of the main herbs used are bloodroot and graviola. These are two of the best cancer management protocol herbs available.
We use bloodroot and graviola in our Bla-can black salve, Cancema black salve (based on the original Cansema black salve formula), bloodroot paste, bloodroot oils and also offer internal capsules and tinctures. Take time and review the products we offer. One point we want to make. Not all black salves are alike. The FDA has serious issues with salves that contain over 40% zinc chloride. Salves that have over 40% zinc chloride will irritate and in some cases damage healthy skin. Therefore, as an example our Cancema Deep Tissue black salve has no more than 30% zinc chloride. Custom salves can be make upon request though. One final point about black salves. Most so called black salves do not have bloodroot or zinc chloride and both of these ingredients are essential for the black salve to perform as an eschar salve to draw out cancers.

Moreover, all of these products are either "new drugs" or "new animal drugs" as defined by 21 U.S.C. § 321(p) and 21 U.S.C.§ 321(v) respectively, because there is no evidence that they are generally recognized as safe and effective for the intended uses conveyed in their labeling.

Furthermore, Cansema Salve Deep Tissue; Cansema Black Salve; Bla-Cansema Hoxy Type Black Salve w/Lugol's Iodine ; and Bla-Can Black Salve are topical products and cannot be dietary supplements because they are not intended for ingestion, but rather to bypass the alimentary canal by direct absorption through the skin. The Act defines the term, "dietary supplement" in 21 U.S.C. § 321(ff)(2)(A)(i) to mean a product that is "intended for ingestion . . .." Consequently, topical products intended to enter the body directly through the skin or mucosal tissues are not "dietary supplements." For these products, both disease and structure/function claims cause them to be new drugs.
Under 21 U.S.C. § 355(a), a "new drug" may not be introduced or delivered for introduction into interstate commerce unless an FDA-approved drug application is in effect for the drug. The distribution of Cansema Salve Deep Tissue; Cansema Black Salve; Bla-Cansema Hoxy Type Black Salve w/Lugol's Iodine; Bla-Can Black Salve; Bla-Cansema Graviola Tonic III (capsules and liquid) ; Bla-Cansema Bloodroot Capsules; and Can-sema Bloodroot Internal Tincture; are in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 355 and prohibited by 21 U.S.C. § 331(d). The Bla-Cansema Type Black Salve For Pets is adulterated under 21 U.S.C. § 351(a)(5), because it is unsafe under 21 U.S.C. § 360b, since it is a new animal drug and there is no FDA-approved new animal drug application in effect for the drug.

In addition, Cansema Salve Deep Tissue; Cansema Black Salve; Bla-Cansema Hoxy Type Black Salve w/Lugol's Iodine; Bla-Can Black Salve; Bla-Cansema Graviola Tonic III (capsules and liquid); Bla-Cansema Bloodroot Capsules ; and Can-sema Bloodroot Internal Tincture are misbranded under 21 U.S.C. § 352(f)(1) because their labeling fails to bear adequate directions for the uses for which they are being offered, and they are not exempt from this requirement under 21 CFR § 201.115.

Making Black Salve

Folks, use extreme caution with the Herbal Remedy.
In a Further Post I will post pictures of my 30ish days of
a Black Salve adventure on my neck and eyebrow area.
Black Salve Recipe
Basic Black Salve
2 Tablespoons
Bee's Wax 3 Tablespoons Cocoa Butter3 Tablespoons Shea Butter
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil 1 Tablespoon Vitamin E1 Tablespoon Honey Powder2 Tablespoons Activated Charcoal Powder3 Tablespoons Rhassoul ClayOptional: Herbal Extracts, Essential Oils - depending on what you're using the salve for
1/2 ounce clear jars

Black Salve is touted to do everything these days, including curing cancer. I will be staying off the cancer topic, but this is the old fashioned salve everyone used to have in the house. What it does best is absorb toxins. The common use for it is to put a glob of it on a bee sting, slivers or a cut. It sucks out the poisons! No home should be without it.

First Step:Put Bees wax, cocoa butter and shea butter in a small pot and heat. You want to keep it at 180 degree for at least 15 minutes. This is easier than it sounds. Just heat it on medium high until it is melted. Turn off the burner and let it sit. It should still be over 180 in 15 minutes. :)

Second Step: Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until well blended. The easy place to buy Activated Charcoal is in your local health food store or herbal medicine store. You'll probably have to open a lot of capsules, but it is the stuff you need for this.

Third Step: Feel free to add any relevant herbal extracts to the formula just before you spoon it in. You want to make sure it is very cooled off before adding any extracts, essential oils, or fragrance.

Fourth Step: Once it is smooth, spoon into 1/2 ounce jars.

Black Salves

Black Salve

The Annie Appleseed Project received the following information in January 2004:Balm of Gilead(Also known as Compound X or Black Salve)Note: No claims can be legally made about Compound X. This instructional document has been prepared as a narration of what users have reported to be the most effective way to use Compound X as a folk remedy, and what some have reported as results. It is not intended as a report of scientific studies, and it is not offered as endorsed by the AMA or the FDA. It is intended to be an honest report of what is known for those who are interested. What is reported here is the result of informal trial and error on the part of may non-professional folks intent on healing themselves or their animals. What follows has been gleaned from letters with users over 30 years, which means it is based on experience but is by no means complete.Historical Background In 1890 Tom McCreary was diagnosed as having incurable, cancerous tumors on his neck by physicians. They refused to operate, not wanting to risk injury to his jugular vein. Tom paid careful attention to a repeated dream that came to him about how to make a medicine to cure himself. After obtaining the elements and herbs for the medicine from some gypsies traveling through Texas, he mixed up a black salve and applied it to his tumors.In less than a month, Tom was healed and went on to live another 70 years. Over his lifetime, he was a preacher, rancher, doctor, farmer, and sheriff under Judge Parker, living with a strength that became legendary. Tom kept the formula for the black salve to himself, sharing it only with a friend. After Tom’s death, his son Howard, and grandson Mickey, sought out the old friend who taught them how to make the salve.Howard McCreary, attempting to make the black salve available to everyone, started a company in the 1960's and had some tests done on "Compound X" in the early 70's, at the University of Colorado to learn more about it. The Veterinarian College at Ft. Collins also tested Compound X and discovered that it killed all known viruses on contact. They found with one application, sarcomatoid on horses (similar to skin cancer) had an 80% cure, and with two applications 100% cure was achieved.For many years, Compound X has been used to cure eye cancer and early viral diseases in cattle, sarcomatoid on horses, and abnormal tissue growths in all kinds of pets. In addition, ranchers, homesteaders, and folks of the rodeo circuits used it for external cancers, tumors and growths on themselves. Some successfully treated gangrene and even leprosy.Today, people are using Compound X for moles, skin malignancies, warts, liver detox, diabetes, internal malignancies, herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome, viral diseases, tumors, yeast and fungal infections, allergies, parasites, lupus, gum disease, Aids related symptoms, and much more.Tom’s son, Howard McCreary was the first to use Compound X internally. In the 1960's he was diagnosed as having stomach cancer. After checking himself into the hospital and without telling his doctors, he took an oral dose of Compound X the night before his scheduled surgery. The next morning they postponed his surgery because he was running a fever that continued for several days. On the 5th day Howard said he passed a large quantity of black, vile smelling feces apparently the growth itself. When the doctors took x-rays, they discovered that the cancerous growth was gone. Howard went on to live another 25 years, without recurring stomach cancer. He later used Compound X to cure himself of bone cancer in the 1980‘s.During the course of his life, Howard provided Compound X to thousands of people. However, in his seventies, Howard was caught in a blizzard and later died of pneumonia.Compound X or Balm of Gilead has been used successfully by tribal people and is now being used by the modern people of today. It is used for moles, skin malignancies, wart, liver detox, diabetes, internal malignancies, herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome, viral diseases, yeast and fungal infections, tumors, allergies, parasites, lupus, gum disease, aids and much more. There are no side effects because it is herbal.SPECIFIC DIRECTIONSCompound X is somewhat acidic having a pH like vinegar. It is best to use wood or plastic utensils when handling Compound X (Balm of Gilead).Using a non-metal utensil, lift out enough Compound X to make a ball HALF the size of a dried pea or the size of a lentil. Make sure you know how big dried pea or lentil is, even if you need to get one! Pack the half pea dose into a gelatin capsule, and swallow it after you have eaten a meal! Take this dose twice a day for 20 days and always on a full stomach. It will make you nauseated if you take on an empty stomach and it will make your stomach burn... Take with food!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT- DO NOT TAKE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.After the first 20 days, during which Compound X has built a great deal of zinc into your system, it is prudent to take a complete 5 day break from the black salve. During these 5 days you may wish to double your doses of vitamins and minerals, as this will help balance the system. Compound X can be taken as directed above in 20 day cycles with a 5 day break for a total of four (4) cycles.NOTE: Avoid caffeine and alcohol, take extra Vitamin C, and drink pure water. In addition eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetable, organic if possible. This helps in the healing and rebuilding of your health!!!Internal cancers of all known body zones have dissolved under the onslaught on Compound X (Balm of Gilead). Compound X hunts down and kills abnormal tissue wherever it is.Colon cancer and uterine cancer have been healed with not only the internal dosing described above, but by also using enemas or douches of one quart water to which was added one (1) pea size volume of Compound X (Balm of Gilead).Breast cancer has been healed with internal and external applications.Emphysema, Aids, and Viruses also seem to come under subjection to Balm of Gilead.NOTE: If you are in the process of Chemotherapy or Radiation Treatment do not use Compound X at the same time...The Chemical action that occurs could clash with other substances.NOTE: Brain Cancer should be monitored by a professional, because the swelling that will occur, it may have to be relieved by a surgical hole being place in the skull to relieve the pressure.EXTERNAL USE:Everyone is different, so proceed CAUTIOUSLY. This salve will cause a burning sensation if there is cancer present. Begin with a small amount of slave on ONE cancer, and follow the directions below. DO NOT OVER DO IT! Some hardy souls are able to remove several cancers at once. Others cannot. You will want to learn your own tolerance for this burning sensation, as well as how quick you body is able to remove the toxins which will be released, so begin slowly.Once you have established what is comfortable for you, place a liberal amount of salve on the affected area. Cover with a bandage and leave alone for 24 hours or as long as you can tolerate it. If cancer is present, you feel a burning sensation, and a white scab will begin to form. If it is not, there should be no significant effect. If the pain is too severe, then only leave on for as long as you can tolerate, at least 5 hours. Wash it off and cover with Vaseline or Vitamin E ointment and cover with a bandage. DO NOT LEAVE COVERED LONGER THAN 5 DAYS. ALSO DO NOT PUT MORE BLACK SALVE ON AFTER THE 24 HOURS IS UP.Remove the bandage at the end of the time and rinse thoroughly with hydrogen peroxide on a cotton ball or Q-tip. After cleaning, cover well with a softening salve (Myrrh, Golden Seal Salve. Vitamin E ointment, olive oil, Castor Oil, Nature’s Way Black ointment, etc).Twice a day (morning and evening) clean the edges to keep them loose and free of pus. Do Not let a hard scab form. Five to seven days should show a core loosening and it should come out in 7 to 10 days. Do not try to pull it out or force it in any way. The feelers and tentacles must come out too.Swelling will most likely occur and the cancer will be painful and/or itch. This is the normal reaction. The growth will change color after the first day, and may even become "dead white”. There will sometimes be pus as the body ejects the mass; just keep it clean. Keep changing the bandage and cleaning the area until it is healed.More than two applications do not seem to be necessary for external growths. More applications cause increased pain and longer healing time. DO NOT TRY TO PULL IT OUT OR FORCE IT IN ANY WAY, THE ROOTS MUST COME OUT OR DISSOLVE...LET IT DO IT’S OWN THING. IT WILL COME OUT! BE PATIENT!!If you feel that you should apply another layer of Compound X, that is ok, just follow the above directions.What to expect during the first 20 days.Lymphomas, such as appear on the neck or arm, may change from the texture of a hard lump, to rather soft, pliable, even squishy consistency. During the first 20 days, you may continuously run a low fever. Sweat, urine and feces may take on an offensive odor and be darker that usual. At the 20-day mark, it is wise to have competent physician take biopsy, or test your cancer for malignancy. For many, but not all people, the test reveals that the cancerous tissue is dead but present.Compound X (Balm of Gilead) is not a gentle healer. But neither is surgery. In many reported cases, it is a relentless substance which hunts down and penetrates all abnormal tissue. It cannot be stressed enough that Compound X or Balm of Gilead is very potent. Do not assume that if a little is works more will be better. Use the smallest dose possible and increase only if necessary. Pain, swelling, and sometimes fever is associated during its use. Animals seem to mind it less that people.In almost all reported cases, Compound X completely eliminates abnormal tissue and stimulates regrowth of either healthy or scar tissue.More than half the people who have used Compound X have reported that they ended with a moderate or heavy scar when the used externally on their skin. If scarring cannot be tolerated on the face or elsewhere, consider Vitamin E ointment or Castor oil or one of the salves mentioned previously.After the Core Comes OutAfter the core comes out, you will have a hole in your flesh and you may even see muscle, but it usually doesn’t bleed. This normal.Keep it clean, soft and bandaged until the core area is filled in & new skin is formed. Colloidal Silver can also be used before you put a new bandage on. This will keep any infection from developing.LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE THIS SALVE CAN BE USED IMPROPERLY. Please consult a health professional and BE CAREFUL.

Escharotic Black Salve

History of the Escharotic Black Salve
narrated by Clark Bigham to Dr. Michael Tierra
It was some 28 years ago, that my son was diagnosed with glomurulonephritis. Since conventional western medicine has nothing to offer by the way of treatment for this condition except palliative treatment with cortical steroids, I was looking for any other viable alternative that was available. It was during that time, in the middle of Wyoming that a friend told me about a cowboy named Howard McCreary. He said that Howard had a mysterious black salve that could be used either externally or internally to treat and cure a wide variety of problems and that it could be possibly effective for my son's glomurulonephritis.
Howard was literally a cowboy, having won numerous awards in rodeos throughout the country including Madison Square Garden in New York. He received two silver buckles and was world champion for two years in a row. At the time that I met him, he weighed around 275 pounds, mostly muscle. It seemed that Howard's father passed down a secret anti-cancer formula in the form of a paste comprised of Sanguinaria, commonly known as "bloodroot", Galangal, Zinc Chloride and distilled water. Through a dream, Howard further developed a modification of this formula, including a proprietary method of preparation that increased its efficaciousness not only for cancer but a broad spectrum of other diseases, simple and acute, as well as chronic.
I spent the better part an entire day speaking with Howard about my son and the various uses for which he had successfully employed the salve. He had an album of photographs showing the many successfully treatments he had accumulated over the years. The pictures were very similar to those found in Dr. Moh's book, Chemosurgery (publ. by Charles C. Thomas, 1978). Throughout all of this, he was very open and gracious with me in every way, bought me lunch, inviting me to stay overnight. Upon leaving, he gave me a half-pint of the salve to bring home. Because this was all given freely with no hooks attached, I was rightly predisposed to trust and believe him.
Among the many wondrous uses of this seemingly miraculous salve, Howard told of using it as an eyewash, diluted one part to a thousand parts water. One way he had to determine whether anyone was with him or 'agin em' was to ask them to put it in their eyes. This I did, putting a drop in each eye. At first it stung for about 30 seconds and caused my eye to become mildly irritated. Within a short while, however, the mild irritating condition completely cleared up leaving my vision clearer and brighter than before. You might consider this my initiation to it.
As a result of Howard's eyewash trial I have personally recommended it to a number of people with glaucoma and macular degeneration. It seems to be highly effective for one type of glaucoma and in about five cases of macular degeneration it proved to be 100% effective.
My wife used the salve topically on a mole. It also became characteristically inflamed with considerable discomfort and pain. Generally it takes about 8 hours for the area over which the salve is applied to blow up with the characteristic inflammation and whitening on the surface of the skin. From anywhere from 7 to 11 days, the core (eschar) would drop off, leaving a shallow hollow core in the skin. Rarely would this be accompanied with bleeding and never with infection. This would be kept clean with an antiseptic solution such as hydrogen peroxide and covered. Usually this healed within a month with barely a scar. The fresh skin that healed over it was tender, like a new baby skin. In the case of my wife's mole, it was completely eliminated. I have never found the salve to damage unaffected tissues. Since my wife had a hair mole, when the tissue healed over, the hair came back. This attests to the fact that the salve didn't even disturb the underlying hair follicle.
After over 28 years experience in using the Black Salve it is my belief that applied topically or taken internally, it has a propensity to seek out problems in the body. It is not a universal panacea for all ills but at least offers a window of opportunity for the individual to make other changes that may be necessary for lasting healing to occur.
Despite all of this, influenced by the negative opinions of the doctor's who were overseeing the care of my son, I remained reluctant to give it to him. For the next two years my son was in and out of the hospital almost weekly. Finally, out of desperation, I decided to give him the salve internally. It was interesting because after taking the salve my son did not go into the hospital again for over six months. Without any recent checkup, and based only on prior history, the doctors decided that it was time for my son to have a kidney transplant. We trusted the doctors and we stopped giving the salve to my son because of the fear that it would stimulate the immune system and result in his body rejecting the transplanted kidney.
In fact, despite the fact that my son had not been taking the salve for some time, he rejected the transplant and a subsequent second transplant later. Later, however, when my son developed peritonitis, I gave him the salve to take internally and it worked very well.
I learned from the cowboy that the salve generally works very well with all infections perhaps with the exception of gastrointestinal ulcers for which it can be irritating. I gave the salve to one person with colitis and told him that it may cause a temporary aggravation. This it did for about three or four days, after which the colitis was completely cleared up with no recurrence.
This same man, however, told me that while he had no further colitis symptoms, his ankle developed an unusual pain. I asked him if he ever had an injury to his ankle. He said that when he was much younger, he jumped off the end of a bridge and broke his ankle. I asked if it was the same foot. He said "yes." "Was it the same place?" "Yes." About a week later he called me again and "yep, the ankle seems fine now."
Vipont Pharmaceutical Company, located in Fort Collins, Colorado was formed over 30 years ago by the cowboy and a friend specifically to research and develop the salve and eventually get it approved by the FDA. Vipont had a very sophisticated laboratory and had raised between one and one and a half million dollars to fund their research. I was with them for three years as chairman of the board.
At first I got involved with them with the prospect of making money off of the salve. Eventually, after seeing all the good it was doing and could do for so many people with otherwise incurable diseases such as cancer, I put in over $500,000 of my personal money.
At that time the FDA may not have been as rigid as they are today and the salve was classified "IND" meaning "Investigational New Drug." 'Officially' its first intended purpose was for the treatment of periodontal disease for which it had been extensively used on animals in veterinary practice. Of course, it was also used extensively and successfully on animals for various types of cancer. While our primary aim was to have the salve approved for the treatment of cancer in humans, at one point we realized that we needed more money to continue our research and to go through the complicated and expensive approval process. As a result we petitioned for its use for periodontal disease. Because of this, when we later requested approval for cancer, the FDA argued that it was not possible to have a drug approved for such widely diverse usage as periodontal disease and cancer and they shut us down.
At one point we sent a sample to be tested at the Mayo clinic. I still have the letter from the investigating researcher stating that the black salve exhibited highly active anticancer properties in vitro.
Eventually Vipont was bought out by Viadent (a division of Colgate) and was put into their toothpaste. Because however, Viadent chose to use it as an extracted ingredient, leave out the galangal, claiming that it had no therapeutic value in the formulation, instead of in its pure whole form, it never worked as well as it did previously. To this day, I will make the Black Salve toothpaste, adding about a 5% ratio to Tom's toothpaste, not other commercial brands, and give it to friends and acquaintances. It is highly efficacious with even casual brushing in clearing up periodontal disease.
Since the Black Salve is taken internally, Vipont had its LD50 toxicity tested. It turns out to be quite safe with an LD50 of 700 mg. per kilogram of body weight. The recommended daily internal dose for a person is only around 150 to 250 mg. once daily. This is well within the safe, non-toxic range. In fact I had a man who misunderstood my instructions and took one teaspoon a day for three days. He said, he felt nothing but sleight mild gastric discomfort.
In general for internal use, I recommend that it not be taken on an empty stomach and that the salve be put into a small gelatin capsule with gelatin.
While the ingredients in the salve are simple, consisting of zinc chloride, powdered sanguinaria and galangal and distilled water, the sequence and conditions of how these are put together is also important. In general, we have found that the Black Salve does not work as well when a lot of things are added to it. It may also be that the preparation lessens and alters the caustic principle of the zinc chloride.
I have given it to numerous people for a wide variety of problems ranging from moles, skin cancers, other cancers, influenza, colds, eyes problems, gastrointestinal inflammations, skin diseases including psoriasis and other conditions too numerous to list. My inclination, since the Black Salve seems to seek out diseased areas of the body, is to try it for just about any known condition. More often than not, I have been astounded with the results.
Cosmetically, I have added a 5 to 10% solution to a cream (not moisturizing) to be put directly on fingernails. This seems to make them grow stronger and faster. At one time I added a 15 to 20% solution to shampoos and hair conditioners and the result was that it stopped dandruff and other scalp diseases and brought life back into the hair, making it grow fuller and more lustrous. I have never used it to stimulate hair growth. Now I only use a 5% solution for the scalp for fear that it may unintentionally remove a cherished mole.
Regarding claims of others that the Black Salve is dangerous or the Naturopath in Arizona who reports applying to a breast carcinoma and having it erode the carotid artery, requiring drastic medical intervention, I have never seen any serious negative effect in over 28 years of use. I have personally found that while other formulas advocate up to 50% zinc chloride, the version that I use and that was extensively tested by Vipont Chemical Company only uses about a third and this seems enough to produce its therapeutic effects.


Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) is a perennial, herbaceous flowering plant native to eastern North America from Nova Scotia, Canada southward to Florida, United States. It is the only species in the genus Sanguinaria, and is included in the family Papaveraceae.

Bloodroot is also known as bloodwort, red puccoon root, and sometimes pauson. Bloodroot has also been known as tetterwort in America, although that name is used in Britain to refer to Greater Celandine.

Bloodroot grows to 60 cm tall, with one large, sheath-like basal multi-lobed leaf up to 30 cm across. The flowers are produced from March to May, with 8-12 delicate white petals and yellow reproductive parts that appear to be clasped by the leaf. The flower is short-lived, but the leaf continues to grow until mid-summer, when the plant becomes dormant. Bloodroot stores sap in an underground rhizome.

Bloodroot is one of many plants whose seeds are spread by ants, a process called myrmecochory. The seeds have a fleshy organ called an elaiosome that attracts ants. The ants take the seeds to their nest, where they eat the elaiosomes, and put the seeds in their nest debris, where they are protected until they germinate. They also get the added bonus of growing in a medium made richer by the ant nest debris.

Bloodroot produces benzylisoquinoline alkaloids, primarily the toxin sanguinarine. The alkaloids are transported to, and stored in, the rhizome.
In comparing the biosynthesis of morphine and sanguinarine, the final intermediate in common is (S)-reticuline. Plants in families including Papaveraceae, Ranunculaceae, Colchicum, Chondodendron produce such benzylisoquinoline alkaloids.
Plant geneticists have identified and sequenced genes which produce the enzymes required for this production. One enzyme involved is CYP80B1,which produces (S)-3'-hydroxy-N-methylcoclaurine from (S)-N-methylcoclaurine.

---Description---A perennial plant, one of the earliest and most beautiful spring flowers. In England it will grow freely if cultivated carefully, it has even grown in the open in gravelly dry soil in the author's garden. It has a lovely white flower and produces only a single leaf and a flowering scape about 6 inches high. When the leaf first appears it is wrapped round the flower bud and is a greyish-green colour covered with a downy bloom - Leaves palmate five to nine lobed, 6 to 10 inches long. After flowering the leaves increase in size, the underside paler showing prominent veins. The white flower is wax-like with golden stamens. The seed is an oblong narrow pod about 1 inch long. The rootstock is thick, round and fleshy, slightly curved at ends, and contains an orange-red juice, and is about 1 to 4 inches long, with orange-red rootlets. When dried it breaks with a short sharp fracture, little smell, taste bitter acrid and persistent, powdered root causes sneezing and irritation of the nose. The root is collected in the autumn, after leaves die down; it must be stored in a dry place or it quickly deteriorates.

---Constituents---Alkaloids Sanguinarine, Chelerythrine, Protopine and B. homochelidonine; Sanguinarine forms colourless crystals. Chelerythrine is also colourless and crystalline. Protopine (also found in opium) is one of the most widely diffused of the opium alkaloids. The rhizome also contains red resin and an abundance of starch.

---Medicinal Action and Uses---Emetic cathartic expectorant and emmenagogue, and of great value in atonic dyspepsia, asthma, bronchitis and croup. (The taste is so nauseating, that it may cause expectorant action.) Of value in pulmonary consumption, nervous irritation and helpful in lowering high pulse, and in heart disease and weakness and palpitation of heart of great use. For ringworm apply the fluid extract. Also good for torpid liver, scrofula, dysentery. It is applied to fungoid growths, ulcers fleshy excrescences, cancerous affections and as an escharotic.

Sanguinaria root is chiefly used as an expectorant for chronic bronchitis and as a local application in chronic eczema, specially when secondary to varicose ulcers. In toxic doses, it causes burning in the stomach, intense thirst, vomiting, faintness vertigo, intense prostration with dimness of eyesight.

The root has long been used by the American Indians as a dye for their bodies and clothes and has been used successfully by American and French dyers.
---Preparations and Dosages---Fluid extract of Sanguinaria, U.S.P., dose 1 1/2 minims. Tincture of Sanguinaria, U.S.P., 15 minims. Powdered root, 10 to 30 grains. Sanguinarin, 1/4 to 1 grain. Fluid extract, 10 to 30 drops.

Some Sources say that bloodroot is POISEN. I am not a doctor, nor am I attempting to provide medical advice of any kind. I am a researcher, with experience with bloodroot salve and have an interest in Black Salve, Cancer Salves, and Bloodroot salves.
