Skin cancer represents one out of every three new cancers diagnosed in the United States. Primarily there are two variations on this disease, malignant melanoma (skin cancer in the form of moles) & non-melanoma. Malignant melanoma is more serious and need to be attended to right away by medical staff. As for the non-melanoma, there are two basic varieties, basal and squamous cell carcinoma, of the former being the more common type and roughly six times more frequent than malignant melanoma. Skin cancer can be devastating to come to grips with but alternative medicine has no shortage of treatments.
Conventional medical treatments used to cure cancer can seem worse physically on the patient than the cancer itself. This is one of the many reasons that more and more patients are starting to turn to natural alternatives for their cancer treatments.
Alternative Skin Cancer Treatment for Patients
One of the alternative skin cancer treatment is a topical paste that you may apply to the area where the cancer is present. This paste actually seeks out and destroys cancer cells. Dr. Frederic E. Mohs and Dr. J. Weldon Fell were both well- known authorities in using this paste. Dr. Fell was a faculty member at New York University. Later he was one of the founders of the New York Academy of Medicine.
Another form of treatment is the use of vitamins and herbs such as Bloodroot. More well-known options include Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and calcium. These are great for helping your body to get rid of the cancer. Diet is yet one more method to treat cancer naturally. You may want to change your diet as there are things like sugar that enable the cancer to spread at rapid speeds.
