I would like to share my experience with Eggplant as a treatment for skin cancer...This information is very new so I will add more later...This treatment needs more testing before it can say this is a cure or on the A list of treatments...

As people on this forum know I have been raving about sunspot ES cream for a while...While I still like sunspot ES cream I have grown unhappy with its limitations...1 It does not penetrate the skin as good as I would like with out dmso..2 It only works where applied...3 You can only buy it by mail order..4 It crust up on the skin easy...

Doing some research on glycoalkaloids found in sunspot.....I read this here * Eggplant or aubergine (Solanum melongena) has been examined, and has been shown to contain the exact replica of BEC. This means that a fruit, which is eaten as a vegetable throughout the world, contains BEC. Each eggplant contains 7 to 25 mg of BEC per 100 grams of fruit. Eggplant contain more BEC than Curaderm.
http://www.cura-care.com/curaderm-safety.htm

I then read this article here... http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/melanoma.html

Which gave me the idea to make a poultice out of the eggplant and apply it to the skin....I think the vinegar may help release the glycoalkaloids I am not sure really all I know is that it worked for me...

I got a eggplant and cut it up and put it in the blender.I then put in a mostly vinegar and some water and blended..Only add as much liquid as needed because you want the mix thick with some texture...
If you blend it to much it turns into liquid...

I have had some very nasty bloody lesions on my head..Swollen very nasty things..Plus a good bit of skin cancer on my face..

I applied the eggplant to my head and face and let it sit for 2-3 hours and massaged the eggplant into my lesions...The lesions let off a good bit of heat...The swelling went way way down and all the bloody cancer spots looked 100% better within hours..I have been doing this every day for about 5 days.....All my skin conditions are looking so much better that I hope to not be posing here any more....

The glycoalkaloids in the eggplant seem to get into the skin much better than with the sunspot cream even though the eggplant poulitce is not as strong(Note sunpsot cream is great stuff and can be used were needed after you use the eggplant}...This seems to make for a nicer healing and a nice clean crusting of the cancer spots...

I want to say I have been treating my cancer spots with orange oil for a few weeks before this so maybe the orange oil had already done some heavy lifting before I applied the eggplant...

I like the action of the orange oil on my skin cancer,it penetrates the skin wonderfully and seem to do some nice work cleaning up the cancer but I found the orange oil lacking in the ability to finish the job..The orange oil has very poor pulling action on the cancer...It does a good job identifying the cancer patches on the skin and starting to heal them but I really felt the orange oil needs some help and maybe that help will come from eggplant...

The eggplant and the orange oil have the huge advantage over other things is you can apply then every where and let them find the skin cancer...Skin cancer loves to hide and if you have a little skin cancer their is a good chance you have a bit more you do not see...

I would love some feedback on this treatment from other people...One really great thing folks is the eggplant hardly hurts at all its cheap and easy to apply....

See Below for full report....

Hi,

New to this site, but I see there's a good deal of debate about the efficacy of actual eggplant as opposed to Curaderm, I just wanted to quickly share my experience of success. I had a BCC on my forehead, diagnosed and textbook shiny bump with bits of black inside. I treated it with orange oil, a homemade mixture of eggplant and believe it or not balsamic vinegar, which I let set in the fridge for weeks, I had cut up pieces that I put under a band-aid, only at night at first until it became too red and nasty looking to cover with makeup, then I started wearing it full time. I did this for a few months, then as it was dwindling I added Rick Simpson oil on the top. It completely disappeared, completely. Placebo? I don't think so - I just didn't want half my forehead taken off, so I just thought I'd give it a try. I was a Zuma Beach California girl - so unfortunately have many more where that came from. I'm currently treating a place on my leg they want to biopsy - trying to hurry this one along! Good luck to everyone...:))

Thanks Perry...this is interesting as it identifies that it is not the fruit of the eggplant but an extract from the skin that was found to be an active inhibitor against melanoma.

I'll look further into eggplant skin..

I was told years back by one of the Curadern "specialist" that the typical eggplant we buy here in the U.S. is not the same as the eggplant used to make Curaderm.
I am not sure how true that was and Curaderm never explains what part of the eggplant they are using to make their very expensive BEC5 cream.

I love to eat eggplant so I'll buy some, peel it and grind up the skin and apply a paste of it on one of my ongoing BCC's and see what effect it has...hmmmm?
anivoc Posted - 12/18/2014 : 07:07:28
I still hold my stance that the eggplant mixture is NOT effective against Basal Cell Skin cancers.

I know from personal experience that the typical purple eggplant we buy here in the united states mixed in a slurry with vinegar DOES NOT have any effect on nodular Basal cell tumors...I wasted a few months trying with no success.

I also know from personal experience that I was able to knock out a 1/2" sized Actinic Keratosis "AK" by soaking it several times daily with vinegar... A little painful but it worked.

It's been a while so I am not sure Kittykisses is still coming here to answer me but as I read through her post a couple of questions arose.


Kittykisses never identified what type of skin cancer it was or if it was ever biopsied but I suspect it was an AK and it was the vinegar that knocked it out..

If you have AK's a 3 to 5% solution of vinegar will help you knock it out.

IMO the eggplant mixture is a messy waste of time, you'll get the same results from just using vinegar on a soaked gauze / pad.

For AK's you may have possible success, on basals or other skin cancers types I am doubtful vinegar in of itself will eradicate them

I have read this entire forum topic and everyone's reaction to the mixture is different. In our case, my husbands was already a open sore type lesion. It had a scab and was wet most of the time (pretreatment). I do believe from what I read on this site, that is pretty normal. It's been about 3 months for him now and his has developed into a scar. Thick around the edges, but pink new skin. There is a small scab at the top which he still treats with the solution a couple times a week, but it looks fantastic. Go back and read the earlier posts here. I do recall seeing lots of indications that the spot does scab, and it will come off naturally on its own, but that is how some equate that it's getting rid of the bad cells.

We are all on a quest to find a natural way to deal with these issues, and its all natural so in my opinion it can't hurt to try. Give it a little time, but if you are in doubt, you can always seek the advice of a doctor. All I know is it has cleared up a spot the size of a nickel that my husband had for 5 years prior to us finding this site and has it has worked miracles for him.

Good luck and keep us informed.

No. You leave the skin on it. You can cut it in small cubes or purée it, but the skin should be used as part of the solution.

I see that the link I left in the above post has stretched the page horizontally. I would go in and fix it but I don't have an edit or delete button. I've written to the forum moderator, but not hearing back. Can anyone help?

On the forum help page, it looks like no has posted there since last year. Is this just not an active site any longer?
Swanrose Posted - 04/29/2013 : 02:54:51
Kittykisses, I think I'm going to try your idea, and thank you for posting and sharing. Instead of vinegar, which is too strong-smelling for my MCS condition, I will probably try lemon juice.

I'm also interested in trying the bloodroot application. I take it this must be an herb to brow or infuse, then apply?

NOW makes a good cosmetic-grade orange oil, which I found last night in a search, and will probably order.

I just had to post my story here and thank everyone who has contributed. My husband is from Australia & when he came here five years ago he had a sun cancer spot that seemed to worsen over time. I did some research and found this site. We went out and purchased a brand new mason jar, a medium eggplant (had hoped for organic but settled for regular) and a bottle of organic cider vinegar. He cut the eggplant up in small cubes and we filled the jar (really packed it in there) and covered it with the entire bottle of vinegar and let it sit in the fridge for 3 days. Every time we opened the fridge we shook the jar to mix it up good. He started putting the liquid mixture on the pad of a band aid (the lesion was on his chest) and put it on each day before he left for work. It's been about 9 weeks now and it's all gone. It used to weep & bleed and looked very nasty and deep, and now it's very light pink soft skin. No more scab, no more bleeding. It looks fantastic.

Thank you to all who have posted here and done research as this truly was a blessing to find.

My deepest appreciation to everyone!!!!!

Welcome just checked out your DIY Orange oil page...cooool!

A heads up on the eggplant.. IMO don't waste your time..If there is anybody here who disagrees speak up.

Fforest posted this in 2007... I am sure 100's of people ( including myself) gave this a try.. I don't know of anyone who had amazing results.. The type of "eggplant" that is used in Curaderm ( I don't endorse or recommend it personally... tried it and though it kind of worked I was unsuccessful at eradicating my big BCC's) is different than the eggplant we buy in stores.

Orange oil is definitely an irritant to skin cancers and so is vinegar.
I have actually knocked out a pretty big AK "actinic keratosis" with just vinegar.

Dependent on what you are dealing with I'm thinking your DIY orange oil that already has vinegar might be quite a powerful skin cancer solution.

Don't try it everywhere.( If you have not already done so) always try two test areas, One where you know you have a problem and one in an area where you are sure there is no problem. That lets you know if whatever you are using is just caustic to all skin or just diseased skin.
I did this with bloodroot and found that bloodroot indeed had no effect on healthy skin but tore into diseased skin like nobodys business.

Anyway... Welcome and good luck! Keep us posted and always if possible take pictures before, during and after.. "proof of the Pusdding" Or as some say POIDH pictures or it didn't happen ;)

Though it is less than 1/4 of a percent in the ingredient citri-solv does contain Butylated Hydroxyanisole which is a carcinogen. Wonder if there is orange oil out there that is just D-limonene?

http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/ntp/roc/eleventh/profiles/s027bha.pdf




I believe you have probably already found this list:

"citrus nobilis (clementine), citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot), cymbopogon citratus(lemongrass), canarium luzonicum nonvolatiles (elemi), citrus aurantium dulcis (orange), citrus aurantifolia (lime), cananga odorata (ylang ylang), lavandula angustifolia (lavender), mentha spicata (spearmint), mentha piperita (peppermint), cedrol, canarium luzonicum gum nonvolatiles (elemi oil), cinnamomum zeylanicum bark extract(cinnamon leaf oil), citrus aurantifolia (lime) oil, citrus aurantium amara (bitter orange) oil, citrus aurantium bergamia(bergamot) fruit oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) oil, citrus limon (lemon) peel oil, coriandrum sativum (coriander) fruit oil, elettaria cardamomum (cardamon) seed oil, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) leaf oil, myristica fragrans (nutmeg) kernel oil, pelargonium graveolens (geranium) flower oil, zingiber officinale (ginger) root oil. d#8208;Limonene is a component of these
essential oils"

As for a source of the highest quality oils you can find.... I use YoungLiving.com .... they are expensive, but just from smelling and handling you can feel its quality. NOTHING else other than just the oils from the plant. Compare it to any other essential oil. the aroma alone will beat out competitors, YL also does gas chromatograph spectrums of their oils, all kinds of tests to check quality and levels of phytochemicals. Run by a naturopath, best source of oils i know of on the planet. please tell me if you know of anywhere else that has as-good or better quality oils. i dont think there are....

Grapefruit and orange oil are the highest in d-limonene, aroudn 90 percent. Elemi is also very good for skin issues, antioxidant, and is 40-70% limonene.... real whole-plant sources of d-limonene will definitely work better than using citra-solv....!!!

Note using citrus oils..... even citra-solv-crap.... they are phototoxic.... when applied to the skin, whereever applied should not receive any sunlight for AT LEAST 12 hours....
BasalBoy Posted - 08/27/2011 : 15:49:57
Using eggplant & vinegar is not caustic or painful and may have produced some results. See the photos under BASALBOY.

LoricaLady Posted - 08/14/2011 : 10:00:02
About 2 months ago I discovered a little flesh colored bump on my forehead. How long it had been there I have no idea since I wear bangs and generally don't much look at that area, plus it was flesh colored. It was about the size of 1/2 of a good sized pea. It was kind of crusty on top and the surrounding area was kind of crusty too. Since then I have seen on the net that the bump matched the description of a possibly precancerous condition.

I tried iodine & hydrogen peroxide & they had no impact at all.

Not to get religious, but to give credit where credit is due, I prayed about it and a night or so later when I was not even thinking about it I felt YHWH brought me a word of knowledge, "eggplant."

I researched and saw that people were using it in conjunction with other things, like vinegar, to treat skin problems. I just used eggplant.

I kept the Eggplant in a big freezer bag in the refrigerator and would cut off about a 1" by 2" slice of it each night then rub this liberally for a minute or so onto the lesion and surrounding areas. Within a few days the bump got smaller. In a month it was completely gone. Actually I still use it just to be on the safe side.

Here is something that may sound bizarre. Since my sister has been diagnosed with possibly pre cancerous bumps in her colon, I decided to put some eggplant in the blender and add it to a retention enema twice a week. I have done this for several weeks with no ill effects. Maybe it is just a coincidence but I am more regular since then.

I think things like these are wake up calls that we need to be sure we are getting plenty of Vit. D (especially through some sunshine) and be carefully monitoring our ph levels and monitoring our diets to get rid of things like sugar & additives, etc. etc. and maybe do parasites, liver stone & heavy metal cleanses. (Curezone has tons of info on how to do those cleanses & don't trust the lab tests at all re parasites. I had already done those cleanses but, again, I do not have a clue how long that bump was there.)

Hi,
There's a product called Natural EsophaGuard from LEF.org that is 98.5% d-limonene.
Neil Posted - 03/04/2010 : 07:24:41
Dan. Thanks very much on your feedback and the heads-up and the link on d-limonene. The article on he link sounds very professional and encouraging on the use of this. I may try it topically on the arms. After all, the MD with extensive knowledge/experience that I noted may not know everything especially in the area of alternative medicine. I'll also look into pancreatin enzymes with the view toward using it as well.

As an aside, the very cost-effective d-limonene caps have been shown to give relief for Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD), or serious recurring heartburn. My wife has this and takes very costly prescription Nexium. I'll show her this.

Amazing the catch-up MD's have to do. But being joined at the hip with big pharma as they are, I won't hold my breath. One just has to make an end-run around this establishment -- and I have to say that it's forums like yours that help block interference.

Somewhere in researching the d-limonene I ran across the benefits of ingesting citrus peal. Sounds to me like the old "zest" of gourmet cooking.

Thanks again Sir.
dan Posted - 03/02/2010 : 00:56:49
Hi Neil, thanks for the interesting progress report. I like the multiple approaches. Of the five things mentioned (orange oil, hydrogen peroxide, aloe vera gel, Raspex raspberry gel, and eggplant), I think the one with probably the most horsepower is orange oil. But I understand that it's difficult to go against the advice of a doctor you trust. I found the Now orange oil product was not as powerful as organic food grade d-limonene cleaners. It took me around 4 weeks before I saw improvement using the stronger topical d-limonene cleaner.
http://www.thorne.com/altmedrev/.fulltext/12/3/259.pdf

Another thing I could see adding to the mix is pancreatin enzymes, either from SupraClens contact lens cleaner or open a dietary supplement capsule and mix with the other ingredients.
Neil Posted - 03/01/2010 : 10:46:18
By way of a progress report -- nothing conclusive yet.: Both forearms in question. One had history of BC and was cut out years ago. Other recently biopsied w/ BC by a derma. I have been working on both forearms for 3 wks. Applying multiple curatives over the course of each day as follows:

1A. A week with NOW orange oil which brought up an archipelligo of 1/8" diam. red spots along both arms.
A vastly experienced MD, not the derma., said stop the orange oil & make an apt. to burn or freeze off the one larger spot previously biopsied as BC. He said it was surficial & could be taken out that way. So I stopped the orange oil and on my own started…

1B. Bathing arms in Hydrogen peroxide as I've read elsewhere that Big C doesn't like oxygen. Red spot results appear same as with orange oil. Noticed that with either orange oil or H2O2, shortly after application I get the feeling in the arms of that realm of sensation somewhere between tingling and stinging -- not unpleasant but not pleasant either. I have the hunch that it is an indicator of something good happening.

(The apt. to burn or freeze off by the MD is 3 weeks away.)

2. When the tingling/stinging becomes too bothersome, I rub on aloe-vera gel which soothes it. I also use that gel occasionally over the course of the day and get a good energetic feeling in the skin. The aloe may act as a rubifacient (bring more blood to epidermis), I don't know.

3. I rub on Raspex raspberry skin gell. Good raps on this from another of Dan's forums.

4. Still putting on my 1/4 " slices of eggplant. I score them lightly first with a fork cross-hatched. Held on w/ Ace type bandage.

Intelligent feedback on any of this appreciated.
thanks01 Posted - 02/22/2010 : 11:17:45
You might use the search function on "pancreatin," something Dan has been recommending off and on. I used a paste made of a pancreatin capsule (from Swanson Health) and some common hand lotion and this seemed to be successful in removing something like what you describe. I applied the paste once a day, in the AM. Took some months, but painless and seems to be gone.

As for the lesion, it was on the back of my hand, brownish-purple, slightly raised, about 1/2 inch long. After I had been treating it for some time and it was a lot better, I showed it to "the derm" at a regular checkup and he dismissed it quickly as "a wart" He probably knows more about warts than I do. The only other thing I had seen like this was a smaller one on my wrist the year before, when I was using the eggplant treatment on my face for BCC, and the item on my wrist disappeared completely using eggplant and pancreatin mixed, in hand lotion. That is what encouraged me to proceed with the larger one that came later, and this seems to have worked.

I describe the lesion here a little because, like all on this forum, I want to stress that you should not overlook the possibility of REAL cancer, being specially watchful for the sinister melanoma. Don't just take these skin problems for granted as "age spots," etc. Best of luck.
Thoughts, anyone?
polly Posted - 02/22/2010 : 09:32:40
I have "age spots" on my hands. They are brown and slightly raised. Will any of the mentioned remedies work to remove them?
Neil Posted - 02/08/2010 : 08:58:54
Karitosis on forearms plus a spot biopsied as basil cell. Using eggplant w/ a little vinegar and GARLIC. Shall report later on results. Before adding the vinegar and garlic, used straight eggplant for three days. From that it looked better already.

Using the eggplant by itself was in 1/4 " slices held on w/ tape. (Shave skin first so tape will come off easier.) Now mashing up the plant including the seeds (essence is there) using common kitchen tools. Holding that in w/ big, barge shaped BandAids.

Can't trust many dermatologists. They want to cut, cut, cut. Have to use them though as middlemen to obtain biopsy so you know what you have, and they can burn off the karitosis.

(Many individual MD practitioners now have huge staffs to support and many are adding costly nurse practitioners or medical assistants -- not nurses. It is actually these folks that often see the patients in lieu of the MD and half the time these specialists seem not to know didley squat.)

Something sounds very right to me about the curative results on farm animals from the nightshade Devil Apple. Because of that I may give Curaderm a try later, even though the results on others have been reported as being uneven, (but with enough pluses there to be encouraging).

I just don't know if they are still available. So glad this is working for you.



You could try the Hibermate http://www.hibermate.com sleep mask, that might help.

I would not worry too much about the acidity impact of vitamin C on the EV sauce. A recent study on a Curaderm like product Zycure used salicylic acid (aspirin) with good results. http://www.topicalinfo.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=443

I think orange oil would work on a bcc but expect it to take up to about 4 weeks before you see conclusive progress. When starting any topical treatment, take a reference picture so you can compare progress objectively in a few weeks. That made a difference for me as I was ready to give up but the pictures became a big encouragement to keep going.

That's great to hear that orange oil worked on your scc on your lip!
A question to everyone in here, would this also work on a bcc on the chest?

I would greatly appreciate any feedback on this.

In my experience topical orange oil has been amazing. It does not seem to lose its effectiveness even on previously treated lesions. I have had some lesions come back after a few months, probably because I did not follow through well, but a second treatment has always worked so far if the first did not complete the job. I would guess the first treatment is 90% effective, a second treatment if needed so far is 100% effective.

the dr recomendes moes treatment, set for the 27th, 1600 to 2500 dollars, i dont have the money , i hope this works for me, just wondering if it might come back, my lip is so much better)

the brand of orange oil is( now )
dan Posted - 08/17/2009 : 21:56:02
rdp, glad to hear the good news! What brand of orange oil are you using? Also, for my curiosity if you don't mind, what treatment options did your doctor suggest?

I would plan on applying for a few weeks even after it seems healed just to be sure. One good thing about orange oil is that it penetrates deeply and squamous cells are near the surface, so it may be a perfect treatment for you. I hope the progress continues.

3RD DAY OF USING JUST ORANGE OIL FROMM THE NUTRITION STORE,, MAN ITS ABOUT CLEARD UP. HAD A LITTLE FLAKE FALL OFF LAST NIGHT, NOT EVEN PUTTING ANYMORE ON, I SWEAR , THAT STUFF DOES WONDERS)
dan Posted - 08/17/2009 : 00:19:35
rdp, it sounds like you are off to a terrific start. It is nice to know the pain was minimal with orange oil on a lip with SCC. Please keep us updated. As for the eggplant, when I made some, I used both peel and insides. (But I might have it wrong.)
rdp Posted - 08/15/2009 : 18:49:45
i meant 1 day on my lip,lol, thats it ,one day and its looking great)
rdp Posted - 08/15/2009 : 18:46:14
it does not burn my lip, just a little, when i do the eggplant, do i grind up the skin also, or just the insides?
rdp Posted - 08/15/2009 : 18:42:08
i have been using orange oil only with a q tip for 21 day now on my lower lip, its looking great!
dan Posted - 08/15/2009 : 01:04:03
Welcome rdp! These treatments seem to work well for some and not for others. All you can do is give it a try if you are comfortable taking the risks. Although I'm a big fan of topical orange oil, it seems like treating a lip would be extra painful. Expect 20 minutes of intense pain for each orange oil treatment, after which the pain subsides rather completely. The eggplant vinegar remedy should be easy to try. Topical pancreatin enzymes with aloe vera and baking soda instead of ammonia is something else to consider.
rdp Posted - 08/13/2009 : 18:58:27
what a great site, just registerd , i have been diagnosed with the

I got the information from another site stating the same story. I have removed the statement which was not the basis for why I KNOW Curaderm is not what he claims it is. There was no purposeful intent to slander, and it was not the crux of why I don't have faith in Dr. Cham or Curaderm. I was under the impression it was the same Doc. It appears this is not the case and for that I do apologize.

I stand by everything else I said. If this isn't about money why is it so expensive? It can't cost more than a few dollars a bottle to make. I spent hundreds of dollars on the so called "cure" and yes it did do something, so do a lot of other things mentioned here on this site but it did not eradicate any of my BCC's as is the case with other people on this site. I used it for months with no final success. If you know where the clinical trials were ran lets hear about it and see the results. Anything other than inconclusive I challenge as I am living proof the stuff does not work as claimed.


Here is some information regarding pricing of Curaderm BEC5. It costs over US$200 million to US$1 billion to develop a treatment before it can be commercialized and it can take over 15 years to establish the treatment.

Research with BEC and Curaderm BEC5 have been going on for three decades.

The alternative treatments for skin cancer are much more expensive than Curaderm

I addition, the purified active ingredients in Curaderm are very expensive. I refer to an independent site that sells the active ingredients http://www.glycomix.co.uk/prices_usa.htm You will note that 1mg of solasonine and solamargine cost US$56. One tube of Curaderm BEC5 contains 1mg of these glycoalkaloids (BEC). So the cost of the active ingredient in 1 tube of Curaderm BEC5 alone is in the order of US$56.

Regarding the results of the clinical trial, please visit www.curadermbec5global.com and look at subsection Research Publications ->->-> Publications/Medical Research. The article of Punjabi et al describes the Multicenter Clinical Trial that was conducted at 10 independent hospitals in the United Kingdom. In their study they have named the product Zycure which is actually Curaderm BEC5. Dr Cham did supply the medication cream BEC5 to the hospitals who used this product in their clinical trials. The article of Punjabi et al, published in the International Journal of Dermatology in 2008 states that a follow-up period of treated patients after 1 year, 78% had no recurrence and this was with patients treated for 8 weeks only. Identical data was obtained by Dr Cham in the 1980s. In addition, he showed that if patients were treated for 13 weeks then virtually a 100% success rate was obtained.

As people on this forum know I have been raving about sunspot ES cream for a while...While I still like sunspot ES cream I have grown unhappy with its limitations...1 It does not penetrate the skin as good as I would like with out dmso..2 It only works where applied...3 You can only buy it by mail order..4 It crust up on the skin easy...

Doing some research on glycoalkaloids found in sunspot.....I read this here * Eggplant or aubergine (Solanum melongena) has been examined, and has been shown to contain the exact replica of BEC. This means that a fruit, which is eaten as a vegetable throughout the world, contains BEC. Each eggplant contains 7 to 25 mg of BEC per 100 grams of fruit. Eggplant contain more BEC than Curaderm.
http://www.cura-care.com/curaderm-safety.htm

I then read this article here... http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/melanoma.html

Which gave me the idea to make a poultice out of the eggplant and apply it to the skin....I think the vinegar may help release the glycoalkaloids I am not sure really all I know is that it worked for me...

I got a eggplant and cut it up and put it in the blender.I then put in a mostly vinegar and some water and blended..Only add as much liquid as needed because you want the mix thick with some texture...
If you blend it to much it turns into liquid...

I have had some very nasty bloody lesions on my head..Swollen very nasty things..Plus a good bit of skin cancer on my face..

I applied the eggplant to my head and face and let it sit for 2-3 hours and massaged the eggplant into my lesions...The lesions let off a good bit of heat...The swelling went way way down and all the bloody cancer spots looked 100% better within hours..I have been doing this every day for about 5 days.....All my skin conditions are looking so much better that I hope to not be posing here any more....

The glycoalkaloids in the eggplant seem to get into the skin much better than with the sunspot cream even though the eggplant poulitce is not as strong(Note sunpsot cream is great stuff and can be used were needed after you use the eggplant}...This seems to make for a nicer healing and a nice clean crusting of the cancer spots...

I want to say I have been treating my cancer spots with orange oil for a few weeks before this so maybe the orange oil had already done some heavy lifting before I applied the eggplant...

I like the action of the orange oil on my skin cancer,it penetrates the skin wonderfully and seem to do some nice work cleaning up the cancer but I found the orange oil lacking in the ability to finish the job..The orange oil has very poor pulling action on the cancer...It does a good job identifying the cancer patches on the skin and starting to heal them but I really felt the orange oil needs some help and maybe that help will come from eggplant...

The eggplant and the orange oil have the huge advantage over other things is you can apply then every where and let them find the skin cancer...Skin cancer loves to hide and if you have a little skin cancer their is a good chance you have a bit more you do not see...

I would love some feedback on this treatment from other people...One really great thing folks is the eggplant hardly hurts at all its cheap and easy to apply....

See Below for full report....

I am using the NOW brand organic orange oil..I believe another member had mentioned it. This morning my fiancee' asked to look at the spot on my scalp and thought she saw something different and got nervous..she did..she said it looks a lot better and smaller. I guess I'll continue with the oil for a another week maybe - going to the dermatoligist this friday for a second opinion and to just monitor. I was applying the oil 3 times a day so I think I will continue and start using it on one other AK. I stopped the EV application for now and maybe go back after another week but as long as the oil is working, I'll continue.
dan Posted - 03/14/2009 : 01:00:58
Harley, thanks for the post! What brand/type of orange oil did you use?

Also, it has taken me more than a month to heal some of my lesions with orange oil. I might of given up except I had taken pictures along the way that clearly showed healing progress, something that would not have been obvious without the photos to compare. Over a long term (years), the treated areas have stayed healed for me. Successful long term healing may be the result of many factors such as diet and supplements. It looks like you are on the right track in that regard. I'm glad you found something that worked for you.

Congratulations!

RE: Vinegar and eggplant. After months of trying the EV mix I concluded that the EV mix in itself doesn't work. A lot of people assume that the active ingredient in Sunspot ES and Curaderm is in common eggplant that we can buy at the store. Not the case, a completely different animal though in the eggplant family.

IMO the EV mixture is an exercise in futility.

RE: Vinegar and orange oil

I am sure vinegar is helpful. Though I have many AK's that I have not yet knocked out using just vinegar, I do have one that was on the back of my neck that I did eradicate with just vinegar. Not sure why that one went away and I can't get the others to. I have used orange oil before but not in tandem with the vinegar. I wipe vinegar on my face every day after I shower in the morning. It lites me up like a Christmas tree for about 30 minutes.

I will give your experiment a try and let you know how it did. Who knows maybe you have stumbled on the new protocol for knocking out AK's...

That's what this forum is all about. Just regular people helping people try and find a reasonable and affordable way to help our bodies overcome these various shin lesions we all face here.


harley Posted - 03/12/2009 : 09:47:41
I have been treating a few spots of AK with just vinegar and then with a vinegar/eggplant mix along with vinegar internally. I tried this for about 6 weeks and noticed a little improvement. So, I read the post on orange oil and tried some on a spot on my arm and just used the oil there while continuing with the eggplant mix on the other spots as a controlled test. Three days later, I wnet to rub more oil into the spot and the scab came right off. That was about a week ago and now you can not see where it was. I have a more prominent AK on my scalp and have been applyin gfor about a week and starting to see shrinking of scab..will continue for a little longer and go back to eggpplant mix and see how that works. I have been on a very strict diet as well, lots of organics, juicing, etc
