Cansema / black salve For Sunspots

Cansema or blacksalve is derived from the blood root plant. This natural skin cancer remedy is commonly used to treat sun damage and skin cancer. It works by destroying skin cancer cells in the skin and is widely available on the internet. Some forms of skin cancer are safer to treat than others. Dermatologist, Dr Davin Lim will guide you as to the evidence of cansema & black salve treatments & discuss the use of natural remedies to treat skin cancer & sun damage.

FactsFacts on Cansema-Black Salve

  • Cansema or black salve is a naturally sourced topical derived from a plant
  • It works by collaterally killing of all skin cells including tumour & normal skin 
  • Some forms of skin cancer respond better to natural remedies compared to others
  • Clearance & cure rates from cansema is unknown as there have not been controlled studies
  • Clearance rates are proportional to application time & collateral destruction of normal tissue
  • This in turn is proportional to the amount of scarring

What is the science behind cansema or black salve treatment?

This treatment is termed escharotic in nature, meaning one big scab formation secondary to immense skin irritation & inflammation. Some skin cancers can be cured with immense collateral damage. 


What is contained in prepacked Cansema?

The source of Cansema will vary, & hence the active ingredients. Some formulations include zinc chloride, glycerin, botanicals & preservatives (kind or contradictory for natural remedies). For more product information contact the company that sells Cansema.

What are other natural remedies for skin cancer?

There are many sensible alternatives to Cansema. The aim of any cancer treatment is to remove the cancer & follow up for recurrence. If you are keen on only ‘natural’ remedies, possibly seeing a skin cancer GP or a dermatologist for a diagnosis would be great! They can guide you as to the type of skin cancer. From there you can do your own research on the aggression of the tumor you aim to treat & make an informed decision from there.

Nitrogen is natural. It is found in the atmosphere. Lowering the temperature will give liquid nitrogen. A skin cancer GP or dermatologist will have this natural gas in its liquid state. Contemplate natural nitrogen gas as an alternative. 

There are many effective natural remedies for skin cancer including light amplification, dermabrasion & concentrated liquified atmospheric gasses- namely nitrogen.

How can natural salt be used to treat skin cancer?

What is dermabrasion? This is a sander. You may find someone who still practices salt- abrasion. This is painful, you can take some natural cannabis if this is legal in your state to help you get through this process. Someone can rub coarse salt on the cancer until an appropriate level is reached.  Follow up with a biopsy.

This has been replaced with simple instruments like curettes & elemental chart (Fe-iron) devices.

Davin’s Viewpoint on the use of Cansema

I am not against the use of natural ingredients to treat conditions like acne, pigmentation, wrinkles, photoaging & even warts. Dermatologists have learned and embraced many botanical ingredients including tea tree oil, liquorice root extracts, bearberries, soy, flavonoids, green tea, & wildberries. We have learned from naturopathic medicine an immense amount of knowledge about using natural extracts to treat common skin conditions.

Treating cancer with natural remedies is probably not the most sensible thing to ‘try out’. Regardless, some people will try Cansema. My role is not to convince you that mainstream medicine is best for treating cancer, but to potentially revise the scars left from cancer treatment- this includes mainstream surgical cases as well as alternative medicine Cansema treatment.

If you would like natural treatment for skin cancer, consider seeing someone who can take a biopsy of the cancer, at least this gives a prognosis. From there you can try natural solutions such as sandpaper or salt dermabrasion, especially for non-life-threatening cancers like superficial basal cell carcinomas. Naturopathic treatments for melanomas & squamous cell cancers are not a good idea. Many of my colleagues say the cansema is a treatment that can contribute greatly to Darwin’s laws of natural selection. I think they are downright sarcastic. 

Did you known that many treatments used by dermatologists are naturally derived? PDT uses porphyrins- a similar compound found in bacteria. We also use the most common gas found in the atmosphere – namely concentrated nitrogen.

Disclaimer: I do not perform skin checks, nor do I give advice on the use of any skin cancer treatment, either natural or mainstream medical. I class myself as an operator, namely to perform procedures designed to correct a condition. In the case of Cancema, my primary role is to improve the scarring from this treatment. If I suspect recurrence, I will take steps to refer patients to medical professionals to make this call.
