Black salve has been recommended to me for use on my 2.8 X 2.9 acoustic neuroma (benign brain tumor located near the brain stem and affecting the auditory, facial and equilibrium nerves). I have been told to take a pea size quantity of black salve internally (21 day cycles for 6 months or more). My tumor was radiated, FSR, 18 months ago. The center is dying, necrosis. But this is enlarging the tumor and putting additional pressure on my facial nerve causing facial numbness. I am told my body is not absorbing the dead tumor tissue and to wait and watch. Is black salve right for my situation? There isn't much room in the brain area. If the tumor started moving around or enlarging it could cause serious damage. I do want the tumor to continue to die and to shrink. Can I do more damage than good by using black salve? Thanks.

I am not sure. The black salve has a couple of functions. It necrotizes tissue that is reactive with it, and it addresses certain kinds of infections. It is not actually detoxifying and it doesn't stimulate drainage so that debris is carried off. Therefore, in your situation, the main reason to consider its use would be to stop growth, this on the assumption that your growth would react with the preparation. This, unfortunately, is not always easy to predict. When this product works, it can be almost miraculous, but I never know what it is going to do so I tend not to place all my eggs in one basket. I would definitely look at additional supportive protocols that would assist the removal of die off and perhaps reduce pressure on the nerve.
I am somewhat familiar with this condition but have seen more response to broad regimes that address all underlying health aggravants than to single strategies.
Best wishes and happy new year!

I have a spot of cancer in in my right lung that has metastesised to my brain. I am nearly finished with radiation therapy and want to avoid chemo by using the Black Salve. Is this safe to do right after radiation?

This is way too big a question for this bulletin board, but I would gladly try to refer you to someone in your area if you use the contact form to explain your situation in a bit more depth:

I had brain tumor in 1997 (Astro III), I did not do any after treatment.
In 2003 summer they saw at my first check with the more exact PET that there is still something inside. Another operation followed.
It was (partly) rest of 1997, they did not take out all in 1997 , was mistake by the neurosurgeon. Now they took out all. 1997 I refused radiation, now they say it was right decision. So now it was only Astro II, the doctors told me they do not know why, it is a very very rare case...
I did a lot of thing s with nature.
As I found an article about Ghee on your page, I want to ask you
- what you think about mixing herb extract with Ghee?
So it can cross the blood brain barrier.
- Which herbs do you recommend in my case?
I am Austrian, Vienna, and I am very fit. 1997 I was partly paralyzed. Everything gone now.
Tomorrow I will do a parachute jump.

I don't know why you would use ghee as a carrier for herbs to the brain when honey or alcohol work perfectly well. This said, many people do extract herbs in ghee. The berberines cross the blood brain barrier very well as must Boswellia serrata since it has been used with great success in treating tumors of your type. The primary research was done in Germany so you must be familiar with it.
Hope you enjoyed the jump!

I did not find your answer yet. Sorry
Thank you !
Yes I am interested in th eworkshop, unfortunately I am not here, as I will study the Trad. Mexikan way of healing in Mexiko for over 1 month.
What is berberine?
I do not think that alcohol is working. As far as I know it should be something greasy also the magnitude of the molekules is a factor.
Could you send me all the info you got on brain tumor? I got everything on boswellia serrata, also know the people who are the producers..

The seminar has been changed to the second week of August.
Berberine is a constituent of many herbs, like Hydrastis canadensis (goldenseal), Oregon grape root, barberry, and so forth. The brain lives on mainly sugar, something that also supports the growth of parasites and tumors. The alkaloids inhibit the fermentation processes upon which the tumors depend, but they need to pass the blood-brain barrier.

I am facing my 5th recurrence of a meningioma brain tumor. I am not a candidate for surgery or more radiation so am research alternative treatments. Someone has pointed me to Compin by Nies Inc. which is a bloodroot product. Do you have any suggestions for me to try to beat this thing?

Many people have found strategies that have worked for them, but everything is anecdotal. Obviously, the big money is spent on things that can be patented, not on relatively inexpensive holistic approaches. This said, I would always suggest checking for parasites; being careful with the diet, especially the intake of sweet tasting foods; and herbs that can pass the blood-brain barrier. I do not know anything about Compin, but if you take it, please report your experiences for the benefit of others.

My Mom (77 years old) has a reoccurence of colon cancer which has spread to her liver. She is not a candidate for chemo or radiation so she has begun taking Combin by Nies, Inc. She also has emphysema and I found on a web site that Dyspnora mixture (Sanguinaria Canadensis + Inula helenuim) may be helpful with the emphysema. Do you have any information on this? It said that she should take equal parts of Sanguinaria canadensis + Inula helinium tincture to 5 ml. taken (3) times a day. The Inula helinium that I have is in gelatin capsules (595 mg/per capsule)so how do I get this mixture?

Follow the trail. Whoever is putting out this information must know where the products are available.

Has Nancy tried a poultice of wheat grass on the area where the tumor is? You squeeze the wheat grass to get the liquid/juice out then you take the pulp and soak it back into the liquid apply this poultice.. Contact the Optimum Health Institute in Lemon Grove California to find out how often.. When I was there I heard great stories from patients who had decreased tumors with this approach. Also drink it daily.
