Skin Cancer Treated with Clay -

This article has LOTS of pictures, and will take a while to download.  Please be patient! Thanks.

WARNING - graphic pictures, not for the queasy.

This article appears on the website.  To find the article there, click on #14 (Other Links) on the left side of the website, and then on the link for Skin Cancer Treated with Clay. 

This is a picture of the cancerous lesion before any treatment action was taken. Notice the obvious inflammation around the edges, and the slight swelling of the lesion itself. The size of the lesion itself is no larger than an eraser on a pencil. The irregular shape and slight protrusion indicated to me about eight months ago that this was a cancerous growth. Extreme Irritation and sensitivity, which began last week, confirmed this belief.



This is simply a "burned" picture of the lesion, taken at the same time as the above.


From farther back, it is easier to see the inflammation. Notice, that in cases of cancer, sometimes there is a secondary growth nearby ( just to the upper right of the original lesion ). I wish these digital cameras portrayed skin better! That's ugly!


This image was taken just after one clay poultice treatment. The only thing here to notice is the reduction of inflammation and swelling.

This was taken after the second one hour bentonite treatment. Notice the white ring ( much more evident viewing the actual area than on camera ) around the lesion. This tells me that the cancer had been spreading into surrounding tissues ( evident when the cancer "activated" last week, with irritation and sensitivity ). Notice that the lesion is nearly flush with the skin now, with no pronounced swelling. Through the years, I've noticed that when there is a WHITE skin reaction with any clay application, that an immune system deficiency is involved, especially evident in conditions such as Hodgkin's Disease. The nature of the reaction is endothermic. In such cases, the clay takes longer to achieve desired results than when there is no change in skin tone ( accept that which is caused by the pressure of the applied clay, of course ), or a reddening of the skin ( exothermic ).


After 2nd treatment ( image burned )

After the third natural clay treatment, I was very pleased with the improvement. The irritation was gone, and the tissues had begun to soften up significantly. Continued treatment may have yielded good results.


When the exchange of energy between the clay and the body is significant, perfectly concentric venting holes form in the clay. This is always a strong indication of a successful treatment. The marked hole was on lesion itself. Experience teaches one how to recognize the difference between simple formations in the clay due to clay separation, and actual "venting holes" which upon careful removal of the clay are always perfectly concentric. I've seen dime sized venting holes that span through 2 inches of clay ( dime sized at the point of contact, growing smaller the further away the clay is from the site ).


This is an image of the black salve "Cansema" ( ), which had been applied to the lesion about four hours previously. Notice the red area around the lesion that nicely matches the white area that the clay treatments revealed in the photo earlier on this page. Instantly upon application, I experienced a relatively severe burning sensation, continued through the duration of the treatment. Using no pain medication, I would describe the pain as just below the comfortable conscious tolerance threshold.

Cansema salve applied, twelve hours into treatment.



The image above and below, 24 hours after application


The following images were taken just after the Cansema was removed after 1 24 hour application, 3/2/02 7:53p









Having seen the underlying tissue, I wasn't comfortable with ending the treatment at this point. The affected area is current sized at just larger than a US quarter. The decision was made to to do a second application, for a duration of four hours for reevaluation.


Day Two ( after removal )

The pain involved was significant but not unmanageable.

After the cansema was removed, the wound was cleaned using a sterile sponge dressing soaked with an isolated silver solution made with a VERY small amount of hydrogen peroxide ( less than .05% estimated at time of application, the solution was made just moments before ).

The rapid relief was welcome although short-lived.

Next, isolated colloidal silver was delivered to the wound for five minutes using a "pressure method". A tall and thin shot glass filled with the solution, having a diameter slightly larger than the wound site, and applied with pressure to the wound. This was an unpleasant experience, and not necessarily needed. Cleaning the wound would have sufficed.

However, the CS solution quickly became cloudy with excess debris, and pronounced stinging indicated direct action of the silver.


The glass is filled to the brim with CS and applied carefully to the wound, eliminating dehydration of tissues through evaporation, and increasing the CS delivery via increased pressure.


Next, a thick natural bentonite pack was applied to a sterile gauze dressing, then applied to the wound, and secured for the night. The added weight of the clay contributed to increased uncomfort. However, the end result was well worth it. Between four and seven hours after application, the pain was completely erradicated, replaced by a deep and soothing feeling. This pain relief was not permanent, as the pain returned as a result of the activities of a busy day.

In the early afternoon ( about 11:00a ) the dressing was removed.



Notice that the bentonite did not adhere to the wound, and mostly lifted off in one peice. This is usually the case when "living" tissue is involved and the clay is used properly. The remaining clay was gently rinsed off. The area was then saturated with isolated silver by applying a dressing and soaking the dressing.





These are images of the natural bentonite poultice.

Day Four ( After Removal ) 3/5/02

The third day progressed as expected. A clay poutlice, about 1/4 inch thick was left on during daytime hours, secured to the area with a dressing. However, 3/4 through the day, I experienced weakness as a result of the clay pack. Reasonable caution needs to be employed when using clay over any organ location, as the clay DOES have a direct effect.

The thick clay poultice was discontinued for the night of the 3rd and the day of the fourth. This resulted in increased pain felt underneath the treatment area, as compared to the day previously. By evening hours ( after a long and busy day ), the overall pain had lessened significantly.



The waiting period has begun as the body moves to reject the now-dead tissues - the healing process has begun.

Day 8 - 03-09-02


Monday through Friday, the treatment progressed as planned. Friday, 3-8-02, the wound began to drain. This relieved significant pressure in the area, reducing pain. When the clay packs were stopped earlier in the week, the pain level escalated, though not dramatically.

During the week, the wound was irrigated and cleansed using a sponge dressing soaked with isolated colloidal silver. The relief to the surface tissues using this method was quite evident, and I now view this whole process as beneficial. Although likely resulting in "wound chilling", overall, I believe soaking a dressing and letting the dressing stay on the wound for about twenty minutes was worthwhile ( adding the silver solution to the dressing on occasion with a standard "dropper" ).

The surrounding tissues were managed using an Aloe Vera / Vitamin E oil base with Elemi EO, Frankincense EO, and Myrrh EO. No dermal carriers were used, just the oil base and essential oils. This was started on Wednesday.

The area is infection free.

Friday evening, 3/9/02, decavitation is well under way. I'm now a believer that every word issued from Alpha Omega labs is both meticulously placed and accurate to the letter.

The first clay pack was applied this evening at about 9:47p. The soothing effect set in about ten minutes into the treatment - a welcome sensation of warmth that spanned deep beneath the surface tissues. Upon removing the clay pack after roughly one hour, it was evident that the bentonite treatments could be used to extract the eschar. A second treatment was done shortly thereafter at 11:11p, for an additional hour. Upon removing the second pack, VERY little connective tissue held the eschar to the location ( estimated one mm or less in the center ).

Of particular note is the depth of the inner "hole", and the evidence that the cansema did, indeed, selectively kill cancerous tissue over healthy tissue.

Day 10 - 03-11-02


The wound continued to drain on Sunday.

Monday morning, the eschar was effortlessly excised. The wound was irrigated and gently cleaned. The eschar was carefully photographed, then disinfected, sealed and preserved for a possible biopsy at a later date. A fresh silver/clay pack was immediately begun after snapshots were taken. 9:00 am marked the beginning of the treatment. This was the most soothing experience since the whole process began. I was comfortable to the point I did not really want to remove the thick poultice. Mostly due to the complete relief experienced, and the fact that no side effects occured through clay use, the pack was left on until 12:15.

As usual, nothing cleanses a new wound better than the natural bentonite. I irrigated the area once again with isolated colloidal silver. Then, I took the pictures, after applying a vitamin E/Aloe oil. One must realize that without a mirror, I cannot fully see the location, and have been relying mostly on the images from the digital camera for study.

It is likely that this cancer has been at least in part caused by acidosis. I will consider myself cancer free once clinical laboratory tests have indicated so.

My current evaluation is that the cansema did the exact job it was designed to do, and with this I am well pleased. I I am certain that there is no real or lasting cure for cancer without fully addressing the diet, stress, and rest patterns - something which I have studied for years, applying to virtually everthing but myself!

Day 10: Another day in paradise!

Treatment with 64 ounces daily of Hydroxide and dietary shift:

Day 9:   PH 5.25
Day 10: PH 5.30
Day 11: PH 5.50
Day 12: PH 5.55
Day 13: PH 5.30
Day 14: PH 5.50
Day 15: PH 5.90

Day 11, 3-12-02:

Greatly reduced discomfort levels. The healing progressed nicely. Bentonite was not used due to time restrictions.

Day 12, 3-13-02

Discomfort increased significantly, likely owing to lack of support of bentonite. As usual, the discomfort was due soley to aggitation of the area.

Day 13, 3-14-02

The mental note to pick up some Yogurt went unheeded, extreme acidic conditions in the bowels ( to a point I've never experienced ). The likely cause was a natural shift provoked by the hydroxide use. Purchased Yogurt, relief experienced within twelve hours. Paused internal consumption of bentonite ( four days on three days off, three days on four days off ).

Discomfort level lessening. Inflamation of area began to naturally reduce in the evening.

Began 1000 mg liquid Squalene 1 dose 3TD.

Noticed the PH balance shift back to 5.3.

Treatment with 64 ounces daily of Hydroxide and dietary shift:

Day 9:   PH 5.25
Day 10: PH 5.30
Day 11: PH 5.50
Day 12: PH 5.55
Day 13: PH 5.30
Day 14: PH 5.50
Day 15: PH 5.90
Day 16: PH 6.07

4 - 6 grams of Squalene daily

For the most part, the discomfort lessened as the days of the week unfolded. Light drainage occured on a daily basis. The wound was cleaned with colloidal silver twice to three times daily, as needed, during the week.

Today, day 15, 3-16-02, I wanted to demonstrate a clay treatment where the clay never touches the body at all. While, in this case, there was no real reason to take this approach, I felt it was a very interesting experiment to both document and experience first hand. There are cases where one would not wish to use clay applied directly to a wound. Mainly, these situations occur when a wound is a mess, caught between being infected and partially healed. If clay is directly applied to such a wound, the infection will be erradicated in very short order, but so will the healing progress ( on wounds that will heal by closing from the sides )... In other words, the bentonite will strip the wound, cleaning it completely. In such a case, the clay can be applied without touching the body at all.

This method of clay use is achieved by using a very thin sponge dressing. One places the clay onto the thin dressing, then applies the dressing to the wound, with the clay facing outward, not touching the body. Then, a second dressing is used to isolate the natural bentonite. This "double-dressing" is then secured to the body.

For those few who are experienced in such treatments, there is little doubt that a very real effect occurs. After all, if surface contact was necessary for direct action, then the clay would only be working chemically on the surface of the wound, rather than deep below the area. The principles of operation are the same, although nearly defy logical explanation.

This is not the preferred method of use, for the pain relieving effects of the clay are often nullified. I experienced this baffling effect with the treatment experiment on this day. I have no real explanation as to why this is the case, but I have seen it demonstrated on more than one occasion.

The wound was gently cleaned, then photographed. The clay pack was prepared and applied, and left on for 1.5 hours. The actual physical effect of the clay can be seen through careful analysis of the photo sets, and I will let them speak for themselves at this point.

The clay pack induced a soreness directly beneath the wound. I speculate that this soreness was caused by the natural build up of now toxic substances that the body had not yet eliminated. The clay both expands all of the tissues, and pulls out toxic substances. The net result is an increase in the healing potential of the body. The clay pack I used was nearly 3/4 inch thick. It also acted on my left kidney and my large intestines, invoking pain in both organs. This pain lasted for about six hours., and surprised me a great deal. Again, if the clay had been directly applied to the skin, the discomfort response would have been far less to non-existant.

A thin clay poultice would have minimized this effect as well. In some cases, an individual is too weak to experience a full clay pack over any major organ ( this in situations of dire illness or other great disturbance ). In such cases, a clay compress can be used by soaking a dressing in clayish water, and applying, monitoring with great care. It is situations such as these that prompt emminent clay expert Raymond Dextreit to strongly recommend natural internal cleansing a few days before starting external clay therapy. This, in my experience, is not always practical, and I have found that simple common sense suffices when using clay externally.

In the end analysis, in the cases where there is no infection present and/or full clay immersion is not being used, it can be difficult to evaluate the end results of clay use, especially in situations where extreme trauma is not present. However, the effect of clay use always results in positive performance, barring extreme exceptions that the average user would not likely run into. For example, in cases of extreme heavy metal poisoning ( very extreme, in cases where treatments are in the vicinity of actual organs ), the clay can provoke an incredible reaction. Premature discontinuation of clay use can possibly cause these toxins to be "dropped" into the body's system, leaving the immune system to work to remove the substances. Also, inferior product use ( such as FDA grade clay hydrated with distilled water ) applied directly to wounds may slow the healing of the actual surface tissues. The clay MUST always be covered to reduce evaporation and polarize the clay's effect toward the body ( in cases of wound management ).

All in all, I'm very pleased with the progress to date.

Although the wound itself is certainly not pretty, it is well on its way to healing without complications. Analysis of photo sets with comparisons will eventually be done on seperate pages.


Day 21 - 03-23-02


Treatment with 68 ounces daily of Hydroxide used internally and dietary shift:

This period, PH stabalized at just above 6.0. Due to the shift in the body's ph balance, I have been experiencing a marked improvement in muscle strength.

4 - 6 grams of Squalene daily ( internal )

All discomfort and pain departed in short order.

The result of the clay pack on the kidneys and intestines caused me to shift the treatment ideology. Isolated colloidal silver was used twice daily, for periods ranging from 15 to 45 minutes. Today, two clay compresses were used to stimulate the the granulating tissue. This is accomplished by soaking a sponge dressing, or suitable equivalent, in a thick clayish water, and applying it to the treatment area. The results were noticeably soothing. Of course, one needs to be certain that the clay dressing does not dry on the wound. I used the silver solution to keep the dressing moist, then gently cleaned the area upon finishing.

Four days ago, I shifted the oil formula used. I wasn't pleased with the solid oil. I added four grams of liquid squalene and Rosewood Essential Oil, as well as a Neem Tree oil. The end formula contains Vitamin E, Aloe Vera Oil, Neem Tree Oil, Squalene, and the essential oil blend ( carefully blended to prevent tissue irritation ).

My subjective opinion is that the healing of the tissues has accelerated greatly. This began to occur as soon as the inflammation was reduced in the area. This occurence caused me to rethink the clay application -- I wished I pursued smaller ( meaning less quantity of clay ) poultices more often during the beginning of the healing process. It was key, however, that the first clay pack reach the deeper tissues. After the first application, a thinner clay pack could have been used to minimize the effects I experienced on the kidney and intestines.

Day 27 - 03-23-02


Treatment continued as previously described on page five. Unfortunately, the equipment I was expecting to use for experiments with silver injection has not yet arrived. At this rate, there will be nothing left to experiment on!

I would have preferred to manage the wound site three times daily, but my schedule only allowed for twice daily, in the morning and in the evening.

The stretching marks which MAY end up causing slight scarring could have been avoided with careful attention to the area three times daily, rather than twice daily.

Day 44 - 04-09-02


Very little continued treatment was required during this last period. The area where the actual cancerous growth was located was the last area of the treatment site to fully close. I let a very small area prematurely fill ( about 1.5 millimeters circumference ) to see if occasional treatment with the isolated colloidal silver would prevent scar tissue. I accomplished this by neglecting to properly debride the area.

Body PH balance is rising slowly, currently at 6.2.

The same oil combination with Squalene was used about two to three times daily applied liberally to the treatment site.
