Look Out For These Symptoms: Melanoma Awareness Day

skin-cancer-mole

May has been designated as National Melanoma Month. Melanoma Monday (May 1st this year), as it has become known, aims to raise awareness about melanoma. Since melanoma is the most aggressive form of skin cancer, it is important that people know the warning signs. While there are many types of skin cancer, melanoma accounts for 75% of all skin cancer deaths.

 

Knowing the warning signs and symptoms of melanoma is beneficial, especially since the condition is increasing in people under age 40. It is always optimal to attack the problem before it worsens or spreads, so it is best to continually examine moles or skin spots that you may have on your body. This is why you should know the ABCDEs of the condition.

 

A is for Asymmetry: If you imagine a line that divides your mole in half, are both sides equal? If they are not, then the mole is considered asymmetrical and you should seek medical advice.

 

B is for Border: If the border or edge of the mole looks uneven then you may want to consult a medical professional.

 

C is for Color: Moles tend to be one uniform color. If there are several colors or shades in a mole, this could be an indication of melanoma.

 

D is for Diameter: Diameter is the length of the entire mole. Melanomas typically have a diameter of 1/4inch (6mm), so keep an eye on the size of your mole(s) to detect melanoma early.

 

E is for Evolving: It is best you keep track of your mole(s) to make sure that the size, shape, and color are the same. If there is any difference, such as itching, bleeding, or puss from the mole, then it could indicate that the mole is malignant.

 

There are natural remedies that can help those who have melanoma. The following remedies may help to improve the condition, but it depends on the severity and the person.

 

Remove Toxins From Your Diet:

It is imperative to your health, if you have melanoma or any type of cancer, to remove any sort of toxic foods from your diet. It is beneficial to avoid processed foods, acidic foods, soy products, refined sugars, meats, meat products, hydrogenated oils, fast food, and junk food. Try to focus on eating plant-based foods like fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and whole grains. These foods can help supply the body with the essential nutrients that it needs, and they also help to keep the body alkaline. Having an alkaline body with balanced pH levels can help to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

 

Use Eggplant:

You may not know this, but eggplant is surprisingly beneficial for treating the affected cells in melanoma. There are phytonutrients, glycosides, and glycoalkaloids in eggplants that can help destroy cancer cells without harming the other cells in the body. Mash eggplant into a paste and apply it to the affected spots. You can enhance the healing properties by mixing in a little raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with the eggplant.

 

Essiac Tea:

It is beneficial for those with melanoma to consume essiac tea. This tea is a mixture of the following herbs: burdock root, slippery elm bark, sheep sorrel, and Indian rhubarb root. Together, all of these herbs can aid in reducing tumor growth, help relieve pain, and they help to boost the immune system. The best thing about this tea is that it helps to reduce inflammation while also repairing cells.

 

Turmeric:

Turmeric has been known to be a natural cancer remedy. Studies have indicated that curcumin, the active healing ingredient in turmeric, can help prevent cancer cell growth. Turmeric has been most effective for people with colon, breast, bowel, and skin cancers.

I get conflicting information about eating fruits while trying to maintain a high alkaline diet. Should people healing cancer eat fruit?

    A:

    Fruits are predominantly alkaline but most warnings about fruit while having cancer stems from the sugars in fruit which cancer can thrive in which is why many healers recommend vegetables instead of fruits. All live foods are good for you when there is cancer because live foods have enzymes.

    Q: Are there any herbs or remedies for Skin moles? My family has them on there face, neck, arm, and legs. Can you pull them off? Some people say if you do that, you will bleed for hours. Is this true?

    A:

    YOU CAN HEAL FROM MOLES! CONSIDER THE Following: the following is a healing account of a mole by my good and dear friend Paris Chatman. This is my story and how I healed my face of my mole. I developed a small growth in 1997 on the left side of my face. Over the years it slowly increased in size and until recently it reached 0.25 inches. I had been on and off a healthy diet for over ten years. I could not ever commit to 100% good health, which I felt deep down, was the root cause of why my pathologies either remained or kept returning. Once this mole reached 0.25 inches I knew that it was time to really make a committed choice regarding my eating habits. I was convinced that it was my eating habits and thinking life style that contributed to the growth of this mole. It was only getting bigger which really concerned me. I took one final measurement and made the intent to eat an organic vegan diet, which would be mostly raw (not exclusively). I then purchased several bottles of BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA and the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA. I knew that my skin pathologies were a result of toxic blood and the toxic blood was a result of a toxic diet. So just having made the intent alone caused a change in my body chemistry. I do not have the medical explanations for what happened. All I can say is the day after I measured my mole and made the committed intent to live a healthy mental & physical lifestyle, the mole began to crack at one of the edges. This was just the next day. Then I realized that my body & mind are incredibly powerful...more than I ever realized. I thought that if I took the herbs that I purchased then I would help my body on the inside cleanses the blood and the end result would be a beautiful healed complexion. I took 5 capsules of the BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA and 3 capsules of the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA daily. Then I broke open 5 capsules of the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA and put the herbs in a small dish and mixed it with distilled water (about three tablespoons). I then put this mixture in the base of my facial steamer. I bought this facial steamer from savon's for only $20.00 many years ago and this was the best use I got out of it ever! I put a towel over my head and allowed the steamer to infuse the herb mixture into my skin/mole directly. Once I was done, I lightly patted my face dry and applied a paste I concocted with OZ OIL and the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA. To make the paste, I broke open another 5 capsules of the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA and put the powder in a small dish and added 1/2 teaspoon of the OZ OIL...just enough to create a paste. I applied the paste directly on the mole. I felt a sensation in the mole area, which went away after a few minutes. The next morning I washed my face using a chemical free, fragrance free, soap and once I patted my face dry, I noticed the mole had begun to crack more around the edges and the edges that cracked the day before had turned black and hardened. I gently touched the hard black area and it came off as if it were a scab that healed and underneath was healed skin. I kept doing my routine and I am not kidding in three weeks the mole had broken off bit by bit and was gone and my skin was healed completely. I look in the mirror each day and am amazed that a mole that frustrated me for nearly ten years was gone in just three weeks once I made the intention and commitment. This process was repeated as follows: Herbs (BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA & HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA) were taken daily each morning with distilled water Facial steaming with the herbs: twice a week (I chose a Sat and Sun because I worked during the week and had little time) The herb paste was put on the mole every night. Each morning or whenever the mole looked ready, I touched any hardened black areas so they could fall off. I ate a 98% raw vegan diet, drank distilled water. I have a very light brown circle on the area were the mole used to be. This is fading each time my skin does its normally shedding process. This is what happened to me. I have been and still is 100% committed to a healthy vegan (mostly raw) diet and healthy thinking lifestyle. I listen to my body now. I can only speak for me. I am sincerely blessed and am happy for the opportunity to share my story.

    Q: I am loving my FULL BODY DETOX. I have realized that I am not as disciplined as I previously thought. Having to make the wonderful changes you stated to return to optimum health has been a trial. I have started over several times. I just hate taking pills...I can smell them before opening the bottle Anyway the doctor said they found Pre cancerous cells in my breast and suggested I have a mire prior to having the cells removed (I have absolutely no intentions of having the butchers cut on me) please share with me your thoughts on these procedures....I bypassed Ramadan to do the FULL BODY DETOXand I'm planning to start the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. afterwards. However, I did allow them to perform the breast ultrasound and mammogram. I had a breast biopsy and that's when they found the pre-cancer cells I immediately started TBC. There is cancer in my family history on my mother's side. Also on a different note I love the videos on you tube. How can I send them to my email to share with others that I know i.e... toxic kitchen, toxic bedroom etc..Thank you and may God always bless you, your family and all those who work at dherbs and supporters.

    A:

    Precancerous cells? LOL!!! This is a fraud to scare people (women) and it works too! Pre cancerous cells means PRE = BEFORE, cancerous cells. Precancerous cells are normal cells and thus there's no need to worry. This is just an excuse to incite fear in you and have you allow them to put you on drugs and/or perform surgery. If the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) is too much for you, order 6 bottles of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD and take 5 capsules every 2-3 hours for 20-days following the food/dietary regimen of the FBD! Just keep doing what you're doing!

    She needs to detoxify her body. She's now dealing with toxicity from chemotherapy and radiation on top of cancerous cells so now she must heal twice: from the drugs/radiation and the cancer. I would have her start on the FULL BODY DETOX; have her drink DETOX TEA and RAINFOREST TONIC TEA for starters. The radiation and chemotherapy are harming her. Her diet should be all raw foods and herbs.

    Q: I think this way is easier and faster to have your response. I currently have many skin problems. I first started having body rash and eczema around my lips. When the skin gets dry, it hurts, and I've been trying to moisturize the skin with using all natural Burt's Bees andor Hugo natural lotion, cream or oil. I tried sea salt soak and been taking Sen-Fen, Blood formula, Immune support, Anti-Viral, but it's not working and the symptoms haven't gotten better at all. My entire body is really itchy from rash, so I haven't been able to sleep well for the past 2-3 weeks. If you have any suggestions for life style, special drinks and foods or products I can use, please let me know asap.

    A:

    Greetings! You skin problems are explained in the article "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" which I suggest you read. (visit articles section). When there's no physical healing, check the mind. Check out the NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL and there is a chapter in there on using the mind to heal. Basically you are focusing too much on the problem and not the solution which is optimal health and well-being. You are telling yourself how you don't want these problems and by saying this subconsciously, you are keeping the problems. Have your permanently switched or changed your diet? If not, what are you waiting for? Your blood is begging to be purified. Herbs alone won't get the job done. Let go of worrying about the problem. Focus on enjoying life, getting back in balance and you will begin to heal!
