I had a small sore on my nose
that would bleed for no apparent reason, I went to the skin doctor and she
identified it and 2 others as skin cancers 2 of the type Bcc, she wasn’t sure
of the 3rd and told me I would have to go and have them
surgically removed which would have cost me about $800. So like many others I
searched the web and found people were having success with eggplant soaked in
vinegar and then using the liquid, a friend of mine said that ginger in vinegar
was an old Chinese remedy for removing moles so I added the ginger as well (See
at bottom for Ginger
anti- cancer properties).
Firstly the easy one Tags -
these are fairly easy to deal with as they seem to be mostly above surface, I
have used Lugol Iodine slightly diluted with colloidal silver (so it doesn’t
sting too much) to get rid of these as well as the vinegar eggplant ginger
solution, there are also many commercial salves that seem to work well for
this, see YouTube.
I haven’t had a Mole i.e.
large dark round growth so I have not had direct experience with however I did
have a growth on my arm of similar size and shape but not colour, so when it
started to get itchy I started to treat it. See group 3 pictures.
And then there are the Skin
Cancers, see group 2 pictures, note, I have not had experience with
The important point that I discovered
was that these growths such as the BCC cancers seem to reside underneath the
skin as much as they are above it, so even though they may visually disappear
in a few days, you must continue to treat them until they have totally gone. So
how do you know if they have totally gone, I have found that with most you can
feel a small lump or disturbance in the skin underneath, so while you can still
feel anything, if you stop treating it and it will probably come back.
Sometimes it may be dead and you are just feeling scar tissue but if this
doesn’t disappear in a few weeks and it hasn’t gone.
When you make the vinegar eggplant
ginger you end up with a liquid and paste, the making of which I will discuss
later, see group 1 pictures. The basic procedure that I used is to cut up small
rectangular or square strips of make-up removal pads, I find dividing these
into 2 gives you a thin layer that when moistened with the liquid will stay
bound to your skin, when there is no hair e.g. on the face. If you have a hairy
arm like me than I trimmed away the hair and used of a band-aid over the pad,
in both situations slightly moisten the pad and then place it on the skin, if
using a band-aid then cover the pad with a band-aid, and then using the pipette
or dropper continue to keep it moist as long as you can. So what I did for my
face was to apply the pads in the evening and then every hour or so just add a
few more drops, if they dry out the pads will fall off. With regard to my arm
and a band-aid, I just applied it after I had my shower each day and topped it
up whenever I remembered, because it was underneath the band-aid it didn’t seem
to dry out as much.
Micropore paper tape is good for non-hair
areas eg nose, have your piece of cotton pad cut ie so it matches the width of
the tape, unroll the tape & attach the tape, then cut the tape from the
role, this way you can hold the tape where the pad is ie in the middle without
the tape sticking to your finger, makes it much easier.
I use the paste in areas that are not
suitable for the band-aid or naked pads e.g. under the arms, I also use it as a
follow-up treatment i.e. when there is no visual sign but I can still feel it
underneath, it’s very easy just to stick your finger in the bottle pull out
some paste and rub it on, but remember the paste will go off, ie get
mouldy after a couple of weeks, (the liquid is fine) so if you are leaving it
out next to your bed or bathroom, only have small amounts and keep the rest in
Making the solution see picture group 1.
The simple procedure is to cut up your
eggplant and ginger into small cubes or slices place it in a jar and cover with
organic apple cider vinegar. And then cover with a lid but whatever the type
you are using make sure it is not totally tight ie if it’s the screw type screw
it up and then just back it off slightly this allows any gas produced in the
fermentation process to escape. The other thing that I found useful but not
essential is to somehow keep the ginger and eggplant below the water level, see http://www.livingapartment.com.au/Products/Yoghurt-Probiotic-Fermentation-Makers/Perspex-Insert-for-Glass-Canister this is important in any fermentation process as it is the pieces
of vegetable matter that sticks up above the surface of the liquid that will
attract mould. I use a beaker type glass jar which can be purchased at the this
the good thing about this jar is that
it has straight edges so it’s much easier to insert a weight to keep the
vegetable pieces below the waterline, we supply a Perspex insert that can be
used with this beaker type jar which you can purchase in our fermentation
section which will be offering a lot more in the future, it also comes with a
Also to note this beaker jar or
canister as they call it, comes with a press lid which has a silicon seal, so
you just place it on top ie not pressing it inside, if necessary with a very
small weight so that any gases can easily just lift the lid and escape and the
lid will sit back down immediately, ensuring a good seal.
As you can see by the pictures, after 2
weeks drain off most of the liquid and store it in a glass jar in the fridge
and pour off into smaller jars for daily use. Blend up the remaining paste
adding a little liquid if it’s too dry and again storing this in the fridge and
transfer small amounts to a smaller jar as you are using it.
anti- cancer properties
This is not the first study to confirm ginger's
anti-breast cancer properties. In fact, a ginger compound known as -Gingerol
has recently been shown to have anti-metastatic properties in breast cancer.
Nor is ginger's anti-cancer activity limited to breast cancer. Ginger and its
constituents have been studied to inhibit the following cancers:
and Rectal Cancer
Ginger is an archetypal example of a food-medicine –
that is, something we ingest that both nourishes us, and helps alleviate pain
and suffering. http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/research-ginger-selectively-kills-breast-cancer-cells
