BAAAAD stuff! It’s an “escharotic:” as in, literally cooks the skin and leaves a black “eschar” similar to a third degree burn scar. It is considered by the FDA (which is not exactly strict when it comes to regulating non-pharma supplements) to be a “fake cancer cure." Many people who thought it cured their cancers by drawing the tumors out of the skin were later found not to have had cancers at all--but were left with permanent suppurating ulcers. (I think of that poor BCO’er on one of these threads who has been trying to self-treat an “ulcerated breast tumor,” for literally decades. It’s not an ulcerated tumor, it’s an ULCER. If it were a malignant tumor that she’d tried to “cure” with strictly “natural” remedies, she’d have been dead by now. Not sure what she’d been using on it, but whatever she uses is definitely inhibiting healing--it bleeds, weeps and suppurates).
Look, I get it. You don’t want to ruin your QOL with anti-estrogen drugs, radiation, biologic targeted treatments and cytotoxic chemo. But believe me, you will ruin your life with this poisonous salve. What I don’t get is the “all Western medicine and Big Pharma is evil and moneygrubbing” mindset. Yes, Western medicine carries a price tag. People have a right to be paid for the time, money and talent they invested in developing successful treatments. just as doctors deserve to be paid commensurate to the time end expense they incurred developing their expertise. Just remember that none of the “ancient” stuff has any degree of uniformity or quality control for safety and effectiveness. I guess there are some people who prefer to live every aspect of their lives off the figurative and literal grid. In which case, why are they online?
But, you may say, it’s “natural?” So are cyanide, arsenic, nightshade, curare, jimson weed, oleander and castor beans.
