When writer Kyneret Azizo’s mother was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, she used her knowledge of natural medicine and natural remedies to help her mother during her difficult time. She also decided to share with her readers of how she helped her mother fight this less aggressive type of skin cancer.
It’s important to remember that basal cell carcinoma is not as deadly as the commonly known malignant melanoma.
In a few short weeks after the first surgery to eliminate the cancerous lesion, the pair noticed the lesion was back, and it was growing faster than it had previously. According to the surgeons, they could remove it once more but they couldn’t guarantee a cure for it nor that it wouldn’t keep coming back.
It was then Azizo took a pro-active stance. She used what knowledge she had about natural remedies to treat the cancer. She did extensive research and found people who used water and baking soda to treat it. According to Azizo, it works because it creates an alkaline environment that inhibits the cancer cells from growing because they need acidic conditions.
Azizo’s mother was a bit more reluctant to use the non-conventional treatments. Instead, she had two additional surgical procedures, only to find the cancer had come back. Once again, her daughter suggested natural treatments, which is when she agreed.
Azizo decided to modify the recipe – coconut oil rather than water. She chose this because raw organic coconut oil can effectively regenerate skin cells. Using a small glass, she mixed equal parts of the coconut oil and baking soda (teaspoon of each one). She continued to stir until it made a malleable paste, which she then applied to the area being affected.
What Ingredients Did Azizo Use?
- Baking soda
- Raw organic coconut oil
- Shot glass
- Small stirrer
- Antibiotic ointment or Polysporin Triple 3 Antibiotics
How To Make The Paste
Mix one teaspoon each of coconut oil and baking soda together in a shot glass, stirring well until it becomes a malleable paste that can be easily applied. The mixture can also be warmed so the coconut oil will melt quicker.
Fill a bowel with hot water, keeping the shot glass in it. Bear in mind that some climates will cause the coconut oil to already melt.
How To Properly Use The Mixture On the Infected Skin
Use the handle you stirred the concoction with to apply the paste to the infected area. Do not rub this in. Rather, slather it on and leave it. If the infected area is on your head, use a shower cap to leave it on.
Before applying the mixture, you need to clean the area properly. In the first week, do three applications. In the second week, reduce this to two applications.
The roots of basal cell goes much deeper into the skin that it actually looks like. That’s why it’s so important to let the paste stay on the area even after the wound closes.
For Azizo’s mother, her treatment went has followed:
- Day 1 – The paste was applied two times day with the scab falling off during the overnight hours. This led to the exposure of the basal cell, which is noted as being a fleshy bulb that, with very little pressure, could easily bleed.
- Day 5 – There was a definite appearance of the basal cell shrinking. Flaky skin had appeared around the scabbed area. However, the coconut oil helped in the moisturizing of the area, clearing up dead skin cells.
- Day 6 – Bleeding was no longer an issue and the basal cell couldn’t be visibly seen. While the area was tender to touch, it still improved. At night, they applied an antibiotic cream to help with the healing process and keep the chance for infections done.
- After 2 Weeks – The open wound was significantly smaller, although the pair continued to use the concoction.
- After 3 Weeks – The wound was completely closed. They still used the coconut oil and baking soda every day as well as apple cider vinegar that was placed onto cotton pads and put onto top of the basal cell root.
The coconut oil/baking soda remedy worked on the surface level, while the alkaline solution caused the basal cell to shrink and vanish. Bear in mind that basal cells have roots under the surface. Azizo’s mother recently had a biopsy to see if the roots have also gone away. They continue to use the topical treatment along with a heathy lifestyle – diet and exercise – to expel the toxins from the body.
They still think positively and use other healing practices like:
Azizo said she isn’t against mainstream medicine; but, she does feel that modern medicine implies that people have no power over their health… that any solution is beyond a person’s reach and that money is the only way to stay healthy.
Throughout the treatment, Azizo said the family say how effective natural treatments could be. After all, they’re safe, reasonably priced and have no side effects. In fact, she said her family doesn’t think of mainstream medicine has the must-go-to option.
Azizo hopes people struggling with the same condition or something similar will remember that the power of their health is in their hands. It is possible, she said, for one to heal themselves. The medical industry won’t tell you this but it’s a cheap and easy method to take care of most medical conditions. Azizo advices people to do their own research and make sound decisions for themselves.
