Initial Challenges and the Introduction of Black Salve Capsules
Gavin’s journey with basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a testament to the potential of alternative herbal treatments. Initially, he used black salve alone for a month to treat his BCC. While the salve effectively targeted the abnormal tissue, it had limited success in penetrating the deeper extensions of the basal cells. To enhance the treatment’s effectiveness, Gavin incorporated black salve capsules into his regimen, a suggestion he received from a forum member who had experienced better results with a similarly stubborn BCC. He began taking these capsules internally in March 2015, alongside his topical black salve application.
Visible Progress and Breakthrough with Combined Treatment
The impact combined approach was visible within a week, as the basal cells progressively lightened in color. After 18 days, the carcinoma’s size had reduced by approximately half. On the 19th day, Gavin applied black salve in conjunction with the capsules, leading to a significant breakthrough. The eschar (a piece of dead tissue) fell away several days later, and the bulk of the BCC had shrunk to a barely noticeable pinhead size, which came out with the eschar.
Managing Side Effects and Confirming Success
The treatment was well-tolerated, with only mild side effects such as slight nausea and headaches, which were easily managed by reducing the dose to one capsule per day. To confirm the success of his treatment, Gavin sought the expertise of a dermatologist at his local hospital and underwent a punch biopsy. The histology results received in June 2015 confirmed that he was now free from carcinoma. Gavin’s experience underscores the potential benefits of black salve capsules, especially when other treatments have proven unsuccessful.
Gavin’s story provides hope and insight for those dealing with basal cell carcinoma, demonstrating the potential of alternative treatments like bloodroot and black salve. However, it’s crucial to consult with healthcare professionals before starting any new treatment regimen.
