"Eggplant Cure" for Skin Cancer? How do I make this at home and will it work?
The "Eggplant Cure"... What is it?
Mercola's cure for most skin cancers is a radical alternative to traditional treatment options. There is no surgery. It's a cream that is applied to the skin topically, regularly, for up to four weeks to clear up the cancerous tissue without any surgery or scarring. The treatment works because the chemicals BEC and BEC5 in eggplant will choke the cancerous tissue of nutrition while doing no harm to the healthy skin cells around it. Early trials are promising, but have not been tested by the FDA. This is one of those things where it is still best to go see a certified medical professional to have suspicious moles investigated. I am not a doctor. I am not even in the same neighborhood as a doctor. I have not been to a doctor in three years. (Thanks adjunct slavery system and unstable video game career!)
I do have weird moles. At the moment, my girls are the most important part of the family budget, and I cannot afford to have a bunch of cosmetic issues handled. My wife and I do have all the ingredients to make this weird goop, and we figured we'd try it first before springing for the skin cutter, charging an arm and a leg for a swipe of a razor and some topical anesthetic.
Bitter much? You could say that. I'm chomping at the bit, still, about a non-cancerous mole removal that the HMO doctor wanted to take off, and test, and take more off, and test again, and... nothing. Long story. Only just paid the blasted bill off last week. Thought to myself, why not try this thing on the Dr. Oz show and see if that works, eh?
Ingredients are pretty simple.
- a mason jar
- some band-aids and tape
Making the Eggplant Paste
The active chemicals are in the skin of the eggplant. Shave the eggplant roughly into a blender, and don't mind if lots of flesh gets through, and cover it with vinegar. Blend until fully liquid.
From there, place the goop in the mason jar, and put it in the fridge for three days, or until the liquid is brown.
After this has been achieved, place tiny amounts upon band-aids or bandages and cover your moles or funky skin parts with the bandage. Keep it completely covered 24/7. You're trying to smother the mole with this stuff.
It is supposed to take up to 14 weeks to work the magic. I am on day 2, and all I can report is a weird tingling sensation, likely due to the vinegar acids constantly pressed against my skin.
I will update this hub in a couple weeks with results.
Would you rather just buy the cream?
The pre-made cream is prohibitively expensive. Might as well shell out for a skin cutting doctor at the rate they are charging, but some people do care about scarring, I guess.
It is called "Curaderm."
Here is the website for the cream.: www.curaderm.net
They list results as taking up to 14 weeks.
